It has been said that tho retail
merchant, or as ho 1b more frequently
called, the middleman, Is not neces
sary. That from factory to consumer
is the economical method ot distribut
If considered from the standpoint of
puro economy of distribution, why
not say from producer to consumer?
Why tho manufacturer? Tho manu
facturer Is a middleman in tho act ot
production and consumption Just as
tho retailer Is a middleman In the act
Tho raw product will find Its
way to a market If there Is a
demand, but If theie was no demand
tho raw product would becomo a drug
on tho maiket and the producer ot
raw product would have no reason for
producing, consequently tho producer
of raw product would be without an
occupation. Hence, whoevor or what
ever creates doniaud Is of more Im
portance to prosperity than that
which simply produces.
It Is In creating demand that tho re
tailor and his sale3 force are justified.
It Is in making the man of today a
better consumor than two men ot yes
terday that tho retailer justifies his
position In the world of commerce as
an economic factor.
Eliminate all the retailers or all the
personal selling factors for twelve
months and the whole business world
would be actually paralyzed.
Consumption would be restricted to
necessities (and by that we do not
mean what are considered tho neces
sities of today, but rather what were
the necessities of a hundred years
ago), and to coer the cost of dip
trlbutlng thso necessities It would
require a complete readjustment of
present methods of distribution.
All tho cost of such dlstrjbutloii
would have to bo borne by those
necessities, where now they bear a
very small part ot such expenro. Thl
would cause such an advance In price
that would again curtail consumption,
and the vr'ume of business would
dwindle to the point where all produc
tion would be curtailed. So curtail
consumption, make production un
necessary and where would be yout
It is the retailer and his work of
creating new desires, or desires for
new products, that stimulates and
sustains a maximum production, and
it is only by and through his contin
ued effort that consumption Is main
tained equal to production.
The farmer produces, to tho limit ot
his ability, tho products of the farm,
the manufacturers keeps his factories
running at fua capacity, giving vark
to thousands of mechanics, laborers,
otc, who consume tho fanner's pro
ducts. The Increaso of manufacturing de
ponds upon tho selling of new pro
ducts, new Inventions, or tho pro
duct ot new, Inventions. Tho Increase
of consumption of farmeis' products
depends on tho Increase ot manufac-
tuilng, which Increases tho employ
mont of labor. Now eliminate tho In
stltutJon or fnctor whloh nitkei a do
mand for thoso now products, ' and
don't jou seo that you would destioy
ono of the most important cogs In the
machine of progress.
Supply nnd demand govern price,
yet demand is actually controlled by
tho distributing agents, the retailers,
in their work of creating deslro. Tho
retailors are the greatest factors In
creating nw desires, becauso it 13
thoy who moet tho consumer face to
face, show him tho now productions,
hold these productions subject to the
consumer's order, and finally supply
Tho retailer nnd his sales forco not
only awakon the lntorest of the con
sumer, but by tholr peculiar knowl
edge of this consumer maintain his

convenience or progress, consequently
By continuing the salo of tho new
product to this consumor until Its use
becomes a habit with tho consumer,
the retailor firmly establishes the now
