WW mem, iiij.'Wiu in i gi-jiai Humber Bicycles A Siory of Folly r 1-DAY our lemainir-jj Humber Bicycles are withdrawn from sale. : The recent course of the retail market in Humber Wheels has been the occasion of great public interest. As the principal distributors of the Humber Wheels for this year our story of the case will be welcomed by many readers. first. In the Autumn of 1897 we made a contract with the Humber Company for Twenty-five Hundred Wheels. The retail price for the Roadster, under this contract, was to be $100. The lowest previous price had been $115. Other models, as Tourist and Lady Humber, were slightly higher. This was our only contract with the Humber Company. I Second. This contract assigned to us as distributors of the Humber Wheels all of the territory for one hundred miles in every direction around the cities of New York and Philadelphia, and by stipulation was understood to extend from Hartford, Conn. , to Washington, D. C. Binding conditions were made as to the pro tection of our territory and the main tenance of the prices until August 31rt. This contract was fulfilled. The Humber Company delivered all the wheels and we paid for them. Third. The early demand for Humber wheels was disappointing. Therefore an agreement was reached between us and the Humber Company in March whereby the price of Roadsters was reduced from $100 to $73, other models in proportion. We then urged a still lower price. The heavy loss thus occasioned was divided. The Humber Company allowed us Five Dollars per wheel and we assumed the balance. The profit remaining could barely pay the cost of selling. Fourth. In order to reassure us and the Public that the retail prices of Humber wheels would be sustained, a responsible representative of the Hum ber Company repeatedly promised us that no 1898 Humberwheelswould be made, except such as were sold upon orders. We thus had confidence that our market could not be inter- iis '-fered-'with either during or after the expiration of the time limit of the contract, and accordingly proceeded to sustain very vigorously the Humber Company's policy and prices. I Fifth. About the middle of Au gust the Humber Company astounded us with the information that Eight Hundred and Sixty-three Bicycles had been made, all but sixty-two being 1898 models, and demanded that we should buy them all for our own protection. We refused to be coerced by a threat, and demanded, as a moral right, that they be withheld from the market until 1899. Sixth. Notwithstanding our pro test the Humber Company sold the wheels, and, on Saturday, the 10th, we knew that Roadsters would be offered at $50. On that day we pre pared and on Monday, the 12th, pub lished our offering of the Roadsters at $40. But the frantic con.petition went further, a lower price v as made which we also met by making the price for Roadsters $34. 50. The odd cent price finds no favor here, and for reasons that affect the interests of the retail buyer. Seventh. As. a consequence the Public has obtained over a thousand Humber wheels from us, and some hundreds from others at merely nom inal figures, far below the cost of manufacture. Dealers also, until dis covered, bought the wheels of us one by one at retail through their clerks. The folly of it all illustrates the short-sighted policy that results from - the sacrifice of a promise. A price cutting war, childish and absurd, has compromised the best Bicycle reputa tion in the world. The natural ques I tion arises: May not quality of bi cycles also be compromised by the same influences that have destroyed the market? The conclusion can scarcely be avoided that the only hope for future Humber Bicycle profits rests in degrading quality to meet a degraded price. Regardless of loss the market prices of Humber. have been met and our faith with the public has been fully sustained. The sorry spectacle sug gests the blind man who pulled down a house, large and fair, only to be himself overwhelmed ii: the ruins. I- JOHN YVANAMAKER Formerly A. T.

Singular reasoning I Why should not the methods that make this the best of dry goods stores make our clothing store the best of clothing stores P The argument need not be driven home, however, for, so far as the public is concerned, the matter ap pears to be satisfactorily settled. Take top coats, for instance. Most men " look around" a good deal be fore buying. Many look over ours, and go away to look elsewhere. They usually come back, and most of them make comments. If we should print all the good things that critical men have said of our styles and prices, there would be room for nothing else in this column. We cannot claim any monopoly of good styles, of course. Clothing quite as good as ours is on sale else where. But not at our prices. There's the point. If you are interested, test us by these: At $10 Oxford-mixed wonted, lined with Italian cloth ; latin sleeve lining. At $12 In rough black cheriot and coverts in new shades! silk lined throughout. At $13.50 A new ahade covert, just in; silk lined; very stylish. Last week' offering of 50 of then lasted lea than two dart. Silk-lined covert it $15, $20. $25 and $30. Vicunas and worsted, beautifully made, silk lined and some faced to edge, at $15 to $30. Second floor. Fourth avenue Women's Fine tn t!!? Gloves at 75c. quantities. It pays both you and us. This last purchase is not exceptional. It's an immense lot, but we doubt not that our judgment will be quickly and heartily indorsed. These are two clasp glace gloves of lamb skin, with self-color and black stitching. In the new tan shades, slates, reds, browns and black. Neat, good looking and serviceable. Yet the price is only 75c. Difficult to match them anywhere at a dollar. Tenth street. Cliocolate-Covered honey' Nougat at 20c egg-white, almonds and arabic gum that's the formula, and the ingredients are all pure. You'd think they'd cost more. They do in most places they're twice as much, and our usual price is 30c. These will sell for a while at 20c. a pound. De licious French cherries, cream-covered and chocolate-dipped, at the same little price. Our 60c. goods are the same as the 80c. kinds elsewhere. Basement. ., , . There's a new New Colored lot herc of p Petticoats striped percaline and cambric. They're made in the newest styles, and priced very at tractively. Also a lot of black sateen petticoats. At $1 Of fancy striped percaline ; deep um brella ruffle, corded ; lined with crinoline. At $1.75 Of cambric, rfaman stripes; deep umbrella ruffle, with four row of cording and lined with crinoline; skirt lined with flannelette. Other at between prices and up to $2.50. OF BLACK SATEEN At $1 Very wide; deep umbrella ruffle; lined with flannelette. At $1.75 Excellent quality; deep umbrella ruffle with nine row of cording and lined with crinoline; skirt lined with flannelette. Other up to $2.75. 8coud floor.
