Hew Monty and Trade Are Central

These are the dais of trusts and
this Is an era of trusta writes W D
Perclral late publisher of the Stan
ton Neb Picket It Is I contended
that there are some good trusts bun t
when the X rays of Investigation have
keen turned upon them It has been
Impossible to locate the good polnta
Today the roost menacing trust in the I
world Is I the commercial combination
that Is Intended to destroy tho retail
trade of the country diverting it Into
reference to the catalogue houses that
have grown up In the large cities with
in tho past few yean We can all re
member not long ago when there was
a country store at every crossroads
and at the same time there were pros
porous towns every few miles along
IIeye railroad In each one of these
towns there were from two to half a
dozen genert stores besides the
other stores that were handling s po
clal lines They all enjoyed a good
trade and sold Roods at reasonable
Today In every agricultural and
Industrial section of the country you
can notice tho results that bavo been
1brought about by the catalogue bounce
The crossroads stores have gone and
in the towns business houses have
been vacated their windows boarded
up and the former occupants driven
Into bankruptcy or other occupations
Not that the catalogue houses have
sold cheaper than the small merIt
chants but they have flooded the coun
try with catalogues and advertise
menu Ulurlng away Ibo trade they t
rightfully belonged at home These
catalogue houses are owned and man
rand by alto business men built upon
the broad gauge plan who realize the
benefits to bo derived from advertis
lag They have organized an advertis
edlag campaign and each year they are
spading fortunes not only publishing
and sending out catalogues but they
have built up a combination of news
papers tm i are nothing but mailorder
Journals It II shown that the com
IKneato 3000000 copies per month
tha °
country at their own expense They
Itsnqulno agricultural religious and
other paper that will accept their ad
vertising They pay the top price for
are enabled to reach about every
farmer in the land They set aside
acb year millions ot dollar for ad
Thus it will bo seen that the cats
logos houses and certain classes oft
publishers are In a combine that con
stitutes one of the most damnable
trusts ever known So far the coon
try press although frequently at
proached has turned a deaf oar to the
siren voice of these destroyers of
home trade In return for this the
country merchants should be liberal In l
their patronage of tho local papers
which have demonstrated that they
are true friends In a time of Ward Thn
mailorder houses are In the business
for money and the only way to com
bat them Is I to agree upon a lino of
action The country press and thor
country merchants must get together
and start a campaign of education
The country press Is on tho right side t
and by all working together nnd for
ono purpose the grip now enjoyed by
the catalogue houses can bo broken I
and trade turned back Into Its legiti
mate channels
Frog Farming A New Industry

United States Is I fully 1200000 and tho
gross value to the hunters Is more

growth Towns that are sot reputed
to bo sanitary place aro generally
evaded by homoseekers Oaet is oflca
Impressed kith tho fact that In small
towns Uphold And malarial avers are
often room frequent and dUct great

than la the largo cities The simple
reason for this Is the neglect of seal

In the charter of many town prevl
plop for the building of sewerage sys
toms Is overlooked and years and years
elapse before any consideration to
given to tho importance of providing
a means for draining away the tu
wholesome Increment that accumu
hates Then It is found that there Is
a great amount of rod tape before
funds can be raised by taxation or by
rotlng bonds for tho building of a
soworaeo system
Small towns as well as large cities
generally draw their authority for the
making of public Improvements from
the state While nearly all tho stats
provide for bonding and tho raising ol
funds for Improvements In the larger
cities and towns tho towns of 3000 or
5000 population are neglected With
In tho put two years the stale of Ne
breaks realltlng the necessity of the
smaller towns having tho privilege of
voting bonds and making assessments
against property for the building of

covering all tho points Involved This
law has already been bcncOclal a

necessary drainage for a town of 3000
would bo Inadequate for a town twlco
the size and as tho town grows tho
original plans are found lacking and
old sewerage lines of little utility as
they must be replaced by new err
tams The economic value of perfect
drainage for a town cannot 1 be over

Infringements of Patents by Concerns
Doing a MallOrder Business
Recently the United States circuit
court for the southern district of
New York banded down a decision
which Is I of particular Interest to
thousands of farmers throughout the
land Two large manufacturers of
cream separators instituted a suit for
infringements ot their patents against
ono ot the largest mallorder houses
The decision of the court was in favor
ot the complainants and a decree was
rendered granting a permanent in
Junction and masters order on ac
counting In favor of the complainants
This case has been before the courts
for the past two years It is claimed
that thousands of the separators In
fringements upon the patents owned
by the complainants have been soil
to farmers throughout tho country
The laws of the United States forbid
the using of patented machines as
well aa tho making and selling of the
same The court order means that
the mailorder concern will be com
pelled to pay an equitable amount
upon each machine manufactured and
soil as well as the payment of other
damages on account of such manufac
taro and salon It also ueans that tho
two companies who are the com
plainant can provent each purchaser
of the Infringed cream separator us
ing the same or to pay a royalty for
tho using of tho same
The people should derive a lesson
from this It Is I not safe to purchase
any Invention put out by a mailorder
concern unless there Is I poiUlvo proof
that it Is not an Infringement An
other thing Is were people Inclined to
palranlso homo concerns there would
upon and should trouble arise over I
tho validity of any patent It Is much
easier to adjust matters with the homo
merchant than with sorao foreign
mailorder house
