DO YOUR TRADING AT HOME,

Patronize Your Business—Some In
An earnest plea for reciprocity in

printed recently in the agricultural
The points made are well worth the
attention of the men deficient in pub

from home without taking the trouble
to ascertain whether or not the local
merchants can serve them as well as
those of the outside cities. The ar
"Grocers in small towns expect that
the good farmers of the community
shall trade at home rather than at
the catalogue houses in the large far

that it is hardly riirhr for the mer

house in a large city for their sup
ply of potatoes.
"Both are right. Yet we find farm

Municipal publicity is rapidly set
tling to a scientific basis. The day of
the glittering generality, the buoyant
and complacent claim of advantageous
site and situation minus the brass
tacks of demonstration, has passed.
The advertising of a municipality is
analogous to the advertising of a de
partment store in that the varied and
manifold phases of the question,
though they interlace and cross each
other, nevertheless constitute separate
and distinct concepts from the view
point of the expert who prepares them
and the sharp, keen business man who
is to analyze them from the other side
of the fence.
Prizes For Best Kept Lawns.
A comprehensive plan "to make
Rochester, N. V.. more beautiful" has
been adopted by the Rochester Flor
ists' association. To arouse interest
in a movement looking to the improve
ment of the streets, lawns and gar
dens of Rochester the florists intend,
with the co-operation of citizens, to
start a series of competitions, offering
prizes for the best kept lawns and
gardens in different sections of the
Stick to Your Last.
The merchant who has been trained
all his business life in dry goods is not
likely to be a great winner in the gro
cery line, though the principles of
salesmanship may be thoroughly mas
tered by him. It requires exceptional
ability for a man to adapt himself to
one line of work after he has spent
years in some other line.

In Colorado recently the United

piece of natural scenery for business
The canyon and falls of a stream
flowing from Tike's peak and the
luxuriant arboreal and floral growth
promoted by the moisture of the spray
from the falls constitute one of the
chief charms of the adjacent town. A
commercial company purposed to take
for its uses the stream above the falls.
making the latter dry and transform

canyon into an arid and sterile waste.
The town brought suit to prevent this
The town argued that, while the de

constitution "the right to divert the
unappropriated waters of any natural
stream t.> beneficial uses." it could not
divert the waters of this stream be

beneficial use of such waters within the

Accordingly the waters of the
stream were adjudged to have been

against the intended diversion of them

spot of scenic beauty is threatened
with destruction for sordid purposes.
The United States circuit court in
Colorado has adjudged beauty to be

full protection of the law, the same as
any other valuable asset. In that
judgment there is cause for lovers of
