to have them set for the race, even
havmg ihe workmen busy while he
was racing in Peoria with the Mascot,
but the time was too short. To an
Argus representative Mr. Corsepius
"I would rather not talk on the subject
of the absence of the Minnie from these
races. It Is a sore spot with me. The build
ers simply fell down on the delivery
of my engines. I had given my word
thai I would be in Davenport, and I
came with the boat that I had. No one
was more anxious to have the Minnie
contest in local waters than myself. 1
have worked myself sick during the
past few days trying to get here, but
as you see I have been unsuccessful
in so far as my big boat Is concerned."
It is safe to say that the next most
disappointed person was W. E. Hugh
ey, who is that kind of a sport that, if
his boat is not of a class to beat any
thing else on this part of the river, he
wants to know it, and next year he
will govern himself accordingly '.and

It is well known that prejudice is caused by a lack of knowledge. Most prejudice vanishes before knowledge.
The public have no means of knowing that the Gately company has stores in 85 cities. The public does not
know that the Gately establishments alone would be considerably larger than a dozen of the largest department stores
in the United States.
Even stupid people know that large quantities brought lower prices. When you take into consideration the
mormous buying power of the Gatery company, with their 85 establishments, you can gain an idea of their ability
to buy cheaper than any other store. .
Most people do not realize that even in a store where they pay cash (the department stores) which extend
credit to others they help to carry the burden of people to whom credit is granted..
A concern like the Gatery company, doing a credit business exclusively, has it credit arrangement so per
fected thai their losses arc small, and they are actually not obliged to charge as high a price as the department stores,
which do not do an exclusive credit business, they have not the credit facilities to protect themselves from losses, and
are obliged' to distribute these losses among the people who do pay.- . "..';'
. Besides the above advantages, the Gately company get their money in a constant stream ' of weekly remit
tances, smarting with the first sale, from a multitude of customers, ealch paying a small sum each week, which runs up
to enormous sums. Also thcseweekly remittances put then in a position ta check-up the way people are paying with
out any long waits. The department stores give from 30 to 60 dayiright on the jump, it is frequently a great deal
longer. before they get the first payment, and they are just as apt to rje paid in installments as the people whc'make a
regular business of it and know how to handle it, their losses are more frequent, and their income not so regular. '
