The Old and Tho New.
This Issue of the Hmau), which
gives tho news of the week embracing
a period of timo from Thursday, De
cember 26th, 1012, to Thursday, Jan
uary 2d, 1013, marks tho death of the
Old Year and the birth of the New.
Tho Book of Life for tho year 1012 Is
closed lorevor and upon its pages are
recorded our joys and our sorrows, our
sucoessos and our failures, ourstrength
and our wcakdess. The Old Year has
been a remarkable ono, its achieve
ments have been great and wonderful
development has been made. Tho
wisest wag their heads and ask, "Can
1018 civo us anything to cxcell the
greatness of the year Just past?" and
yet wo doubt not, that the oloso of an
other year will have proven even more
wonderful and startling. Great in
deed is the possibilities of our Nation
and with tho wonders already aohieved
the American peoplo havo como to
look upon nothing, no mattor how
seemingly impossible, as being impro
bable. Tho past is gone and we can live it
over only in sweet memories or bit
ter regrets. The Future Is yet to
come and the Present Is swiftly pass
ing by. Let us then enjoy and im
provo its passing,
Tho year 1012 has been a prosperous
and successsul one for the people of
our county. Never in years were our
farmers blessed witli such a favorable
season and bountiful harvest. Their
greatest hardship was in the low prices
which prevailed for their products and
yet, thoy had much to sell, and the
conditions withal aro exceedingly good.
Our merchants have had a good busi
ness and our people generally are pros
perous, happy and contented.
The fond hope of years has been
realized in a railroad within our bord
ers and a market brought almost at
our doors Not only this, two more
railroads at least, seemed assurrcd in
the near future and we may look to
1013 to consumato these plans.
Our people aro progressive, indus
trourar.d resourceful and wo have
every reason to bellovo that the fu
ture will bring greater things than
hav been donp in the past.
Along with tho rest, the Herald has
enjoyed many of the pleasures and yet
some of the disappointments of the
year just past. Wo aro proud of the
friends we havo kept and now ones wo
may have added and sorry should we
have lost a single one. May tho New
Year provo a blessing to eaoh and
everyone of you and be filled with good
How Local Merchants Can
Kill Mail Order Competition.
The Sapulpa Light says: Mailorder
business Is that department of busi
ness whereby through the medium of
advertising merchandise is sold direct
to consumors by mail. This business
has grown in leaps and bounds . Why?
Because local merchants do not keep
pace with the increasing population.
The five big malt order houses of
Chicago receive on an averago of 260,
000 orders a day. And this enormous
business comes from communities
whoso natural trado bolongs to tho
local merchant. Tho local morchant
must make more effort to hold his bus
iness and get new buslnoss or tho big
concerns will make greater inroads
Ho must beat tho mail order house at
their own game. He can do this by
handling honest goods at honest prices
ana toiling about the goods In such a
I way people will believe him. Fault
finding or appealing to looal prido Is
or no avail.
It Is the careful, ysteraatio, elabo
rate and half-truthful description in
mail order advertising that has built
up the big mailorder business. If the
local morchant will be oareful, syste
matic, elaborate and truthful in all
his local advertising ho will win. The
advertlsor who Is truthful will in the
end get tho business,
The public can never know what a
merchant has to sell unless he tells
about It. Thero Is no better friend of
tho merchant and no better means of
publicity than the local paper. Evory
merchant who carries on a systematic
advertising campaign in his local pa
per, properly and honestly describing
what ho has tar sale, will find his busi
ness in no way affected by mall order
