pMpte who live in glass houses should

wiU do as well, Speaking of "blinds," a
lot of people who are running them ex
pect you to be blind, but there's no law
to compel you to go against another
man's game—you can play one side of
tbe street and tell him to work the
other. My boss has a strange theory—
that honesty is the best policy busi
ness. He says that business
&onesty is
at a premium. I asked him how we
were going to get the discount, if the
stuff was at a premium, but he came
right back and said, "Youdon't sell you
hang on to your honesty and your goods
will- sell themselves." Gee, thaty fierce
isn't it? Goods sell themselves! I
guess not. The only thing that I know
of that almost walks up and takes the
money this month is our good picnic
stuff. Most every one in town is start
ingoa a picnic somewhere and they
ua&umllv come to us for their picnic
grub. That is honest enough ana you
don't have to pay a premium te get it.
