Kerns' Humanized Store
Did you ever go into a store and instinctively
feel a cold listless atmosphere a store about
which there was a languid and unresponsive spirit?
You weren't at home in that store you were
served in a cool, unconcerned manner the sole
J thought of the salesperson being to sell what he
i or she thought you ought to have, whether or not
r it suited your needs.
I It was "just a store," with a greedy desire of
1 dollars and an unmistakable lack of warmhearted
I ness and willingness to please.
I Contrast the repellant attitude of such a store
with the personal attitude of this Humanized In- J
Here personality, politeness and pride are
I highly prized, permanent elements instilled in
! everyone that has to do with the store's activities.
You are made welcome here the minute you
enter the doors you breathe in a free, enlivening
I and humanized air. And you notice a i"joy in
labor" that is reflected in every face and con-
Iveyeito you in the form of affable and attentive
service. We're all one big happy family, each
doing his or her best toward a live and willing
co-operation to see that you receive every atten
tion, courtesy and convenience. There is that
contentment and advancement borne of joyful
This is not "just a store." It is a public ser
vant, wideawake, modern and Shumanized not
just eager to sell, but to please not Bjust a
strange, happened-to-be-here place, but one in
which you are made to feel at home and about
which there is all the humanness of home.

MAKING MEAL OF ANTS
FISHERMAN HAD GOOD VIEW OP
Animal Had Found Food He Fancied,
and Was Enjoying It Without
Thought He Was Being
To watch wild animals feeding at
a time when they do not suspect an
audience is always an interesting ex
perience, and in the case of black
bears, a comparatively rare one. Mr.
Charles S. Moody, writing in the
Outing Magazine, tells how ho came
upon a big black bear which was in
dulging in a feast, with very evident
symptoms of enjoyment.
I was fishing a small trout-stream
that ran through a narrow mountain
meadow, at times approaching quite
near to the timber on either side. A
friend was fishing the same stream
something like half an hour before
me I became aware or a voice dron
ing a Bong. The sound kept on, but
I was very much Interested in my
sport, casting my fly. The sound all
the time became more distinct. I
thought my friend had turned musical.
When the sound became very dis
tinct, I looked up. I was less than
35 feet from a black bear which
looked about the size of a load of
hay. His bearship did not see me,
but was busy licking ants off a dead
pinetree that stood at the edge of the
forest. I was so close that I could
see the Insects running about in great
confusion. Occasionally the bear
would cuff the tree, and out would
come the ants. lie would lick them
up, rising on his hind paws to reach
those above his head. All the time
he was whining in a sing-song to him
self, and seemed to be very much
pleased with his success.
His dinner over, he dropped down
and started through the dense skunk
cabbage toward where I stood. I
yelled. Ho reared on his haunches,
took one look, and mowed down a
wide swath of skunk-cabbage as he
plunged back into the forest
Another time I watched a bear fish
ing. It was in August, on the upper
Lochsaw river, during the height of
the salmon run. A forest fire .had
swept over the Clearwater mountains,
and destroyed all the berries, soothe
bears were coming to the river, at
tracted by the fish that were seeking
the shallow, still water, where they
could bask in the sunshine.
I walked up to the river ono even
ing about sunset in search of a deer.
Coming round a bend, I saw a largo
black bear perched upon a fiat rock
several feet from the shore. I could
not tell at first what he was doing.
He was stooping down with one paw
in the water, and waving it gently to
and fro. I watched closely, and saw,
Just beyond his reach, a large male
salmon, so nearly dead that he could
not swim. The bear was using his
paw to create an eddy that would
draw the fish within his grasp. Slow
ly the salmon drifted toward the
It was amusing to watch how care
fully the bear moved bis paw bo 'bb
not to frighten his prey. At last the
fish came within reach; bruin reached
over, gave It a quick slap, seized it in
his Jaws, leaped ashore, and lumbered
off, to eat his evening meal In pri
