Bsfore-the-TTor Merchant Com.i to New
Tork and Offer Merchandls for Cash."
Tho man from tho South who comes to the
North anil engngss In business on his own
hook does not adopt quickly tho Northern way
of advertising. A Bust reporter was attracted
to a shop by this sign!
: MEitcnANDisE ron cash. :
The proprietor said. In old-time Virginia ao
cent, that he had formerly lived tin Norfolk,
where ho had been In business for nearly fifty
years.
"I sold nearly everything," he said. "In the
cities ot the South the merchant has to keep
everything that a oustomer wants. Your big
department storo In New York aro simply the
old-tlmo country store ot the Bouth on a larger
soala. I remember when I was clerk in my
fathor's store a wealthy woman from one ot
the plantations eamo In and her man followed
with a stone Jug. She didn't ask what we keot.
Bhe knew. All oustomers knew tho stock ot
tholr dealer. I remember sho said to my
father; 'Fill the Jug with your best New Or
leans mnlassos and while It Is running I will
loot a your new droaa goods.' Now that was
all right then. Tha remark, oaused no com
ment. Sho knew, the weather was cold, that
molasses In winter Is mighty slow. And she
knew she would bav tlmo to look at dress
goods while the Jug was filling. How often I
have seen that In the old store In the Bouth."
, Your sign reads. 'Meiohandlse for Cash.' It
Is an odd one In this oountry. Business ot
every kind is, virtually, a cash transaction In
tho North." said Tbh Bun reporter.
, "I know that," was the reply. "It was an
old sign. You can seo that. It was painted
befoio the civil war and I brought it with me.
That sign was piloted In Itlohmond and
shipped to Norfolk by a man who was in Btone
wall .Taokson's armv."
"What morohandlso is Included In your busi
ness?" "Just eggs and butter, principally. Occa
sionally I deal In cheese and sometimes some
Virginia or Houthom vegetable that Is soiree
In Now York. Horo is one of my oards."
The type was old stvle. The cards were
printed In Norfolk. Eliminating name and
address the card read:
j MEItOIUNDISr. FOR CASH. j
: Zeeps Constantly on Band and Expscts to :
: Itecelra Duly :
Fruh Butter and Fresh Eggs. ;
: At tha LowMtMtraet Prices. j '
i Fatronags Rtaprctfnllr Bollclted and :
: Competition Defied. :
It was a copy, "as far as It went." of the ad
vertisement ot.hls father In the homo news
paper. "Ho enumerated nearly everything' ho had
for salo." said the merchant.r-and.the price
was attached to every article. When the nrlces
fluctuated my father would note the changes,
and I was sent to tho newspaper office with
the changes, and the figures in the advertise
ment wore corrected in the next issue of tho
newspaper. Otherwise the advertisement re
mained unchanged for a year."
"Bhall you advertise In New York?"
"1 havo not done so yet. and do not think I
shall. Nu one has been to see me ret about
advertising. I suppose It is very high here.
When a man goes in business In a Houthern
town 'about the first caller ho has is th man
who wants an advertisement. And when it
appears the local editor comes around and
gets acquainted and writes up a 'puff' for the
merchant, and then the editor comes around
afterward and opens an account. And the
merchandise account and tho newspaper ao
cnunt kind o' seesaw for the year. Some
times tbd editor is ahead and sometimes the
merchant."
"You are late In removing your business to
New York?"
"For myself, yes. But my boys will soon
be ready to go Into business, and my daugh
ter, who Is finishing her musical education
abroad, will be home In the early spring. And
we thought we'd move to New ork."

TIio Result of a Visit of Mr, rrnitrls, Chris
tian Scientist, of Washington, 1). C.
Tbxnton, N. J.. Nov. 24. The State prison
authorities here have to decide an interesting
question that has arisen through a visit to
the Institution to-day by Mrs. Francis of
Washington, T,'CL, who in a dlsalple of Chris
tian Science.! The problem to be sohed I?
where Christian Science begins as a religious
faith and ends as a form ot medical practice.
There aro in the prison many persons sen
tenced In the District of Columbia. While
hey were in jail there some of them were
converted to Christian Science by Mrs. Fran
els. To-day she applied at the prison for per
mission to visit and talk to her converts In
furtherance ot her work. She was referred
to Br. Brewer, the assistant physician of the
institution, who told her that the New Jersey
laws were strict against the practicing of
medicine or any form of cure unless the prac
titioner had a diploma from a reputable school
oricolleeo of medicine. Tho Htato would In
no way interfere with her religious work,
but sho must be careful not to violate the law.
The doctor said ho had no knowledge of thn
new faith and that Mrs. Franc's must herself
determine where medical practice ended and
religious teaching began. Mrs. Francis prom
ised to keep within the law. and was then
permitted to converse with the prisoners
whom she named. Before leaving she had a
long talk with Dr. Brewer and endeavored to
convert him to the now faith, but the doctor
was too strongly Inclined In faor ot the allo
pathio system and his own Church to believe
that "there Is nothing so matbrlal about dis
ease as to prevent its euro by a belief that It
does not exist."
Dr. Brewer said that ono of Mrs. Francis's
converts was In the hospital recently suffer
ing from asthma. He sent for Dr. Brewer,
who. knowing ot the man's belief, told ntm
that, necording to Christian Science, thore
was nothing tho matter with him, that he
had evidently forgotten t!i firs'- principles
ot his new religious belief, and should be back
In his cell. The prisoner said he agreed with
the doctor and returned to his cell, The next
day. however, he sent for the physician and
told him that there was something wrong with
the solnnce, as it had failed to help him. Tie
asked tor medicine, which soon relieved his
trouble.

for All Comers, Though-Immigrants In
quire When Next Thanksgiving Comes.
It was a fortunate thing that theAmorlcan
peoplo had a lot to bo thankful for yestorday,
to that the Impetus carried them right through
the weather. The rain and wind In the morn
ing and the snow and wind In the afternoon
combined to make It one of tho most miserable
days of a deoade as to weather, and the plans ot
thousands In this city alone were destroyed.
It was the weather that was rosponslble for
making thousands miss tha best pulpit oratory
for years.
Not once did the sun show Itsolt. The local
weather forecaster had predicted rain and snow
for the day before, when nobody Would havo
minded them much. But thoy cot hero Just in
tlmo to spoil ono ot tho most popular .holidays
ot tho year. Thoy spoiled many of tho ath
lctlo ovonta scheduled for the day, and
mode weary tho hearts of the myriad of
bloycllsts, who novor bother with anything
but their wheels whon a holiday comes around.
Tho day, began with rain and tho wcathorgot
worse steadily. The rain ohangod to sleet and
then to snow and at G o'clock In tho afternoon a
northwest wind was blowing at the rato of
thirty-four mllos an hour, tho thermometer
registered 32. and the snow was falling taster
and fastoroutot.graycloudsthnthad brought
night promoturcly on.
But the weather did not hurt tho dinners. In
a dozen different plncon in tho city turkey with
cranberry sauce, mince pies, pumpkin pies and
lots of other good things , wore served to overy
hody who was hungry, add hundreds of home
less men were benefited. Thoro were turkey
dinners In the city prisons and other institu
tions. At tho Fivo Points House of Industry 400
boys and girls sat down to tholr turkey dinner
at onco with 400 healthy appetites, when tho
children had finished and boon marched back
to tholr playrooms, tho doors were thrown open
to tho poor who aro annually fed nt this insti
tution. Sixteen hundred pounds ol turkor. 400
minco pies nnd great stacks of othergood things
wore distributed among soraothiiig llko 1,200
poor mon and women between 2 and U o'olock.
At 3 o'clock tho children gave an entertnln
mont in the Houso ot Industry Chanel, winding
up tho day by singing the "Star-Spangled Ban
ner." Across tho park, at tho Five Points Mission.
700 children wore fed on turkey, plo. nnd other
things, and several hundred poor wore cared
for. Tho children at tho Homo for tho Friend
loss, at 20 East Twenty-ninth street, sat down
to their ThankBglvlng dinnor nt 12:30 o'clock
and didn't quit eating until almost 2 o clock.
Then they had an entertainment, consisting of
songs and recitations nnd a Thanksgiving day
talk by the Bov. Dr. Henry M. Sanders. At tho
twelve Industrial schools which aro branches of
this homo there worn also dinners and enter
tolnmontsforthoohildren. , .
Down nt the Barge Oflleo Emll Schwab, who
looks after the detained Immigrants, gave a
turkey dinner to forty or fifty of them yester
day. The Immigrants didn't understand why
tho elaborate foed was cut before them, but
thoy sailed Into It In good style, nnd when an
Interpreter explained tho nituntlon to them
nfterwnrd they concluded that tho American
Thanksgiving Day was a pretty good institu
tion, and one of thom wantod to know how
many times a ypar It came around. The Chil
dren's Aid Society fed a host ot nowsboys In
different parts of tho city, and nearly a thou
sand destitute men nnd boys got a Thanksgiv

Young Men's Christian Association. Mlsi
Helen Gould gavo a dinner to soldiers at
the house of tnn Soldiers' Comfort Commit
too. nt310 East Fifteenth street, and tho King's
Daughters' Settlement In Henry street saw to
It that poor enst side families had tho right
sort of food for the day on their tables. Rail
road men away from home, and many who
were not railroad men. were regaled on turkey
and tho usunl accessories nt tho Railroad Men's
building. 301 Mndloon avenue. Dinner was
served from 11:30 o'clock In the morning until
7 In tho evening, and at 8 o'clock thoro was an

RUM TRAP FOR BURGLARS,
A aVnVRBAX XXPBRIMKXT THAT XRFT
OUT THE COOK.
i
Study, by a Man Who nail Been Bobbed
Twice, of the Aspirations nnd Hopes of
Burglars Device to Catch Theht Tlint
Seemed Perfect Other Men, Thirsty, Too.
" It Is as oasy to satch burglars it you make a
slight study ot tholr habits as It is tocatch Ilea
It you spread good flypaper for them.' said Mr.
Suburbanite pompously, "There Is an erro
neous Impression that burglars are not human ;
that tholr jov s are different from other rooplcs',
and that, during the season, they burgle by
sight and plot by day, being too lntont on
amassing lll-gottcn spoils to relax their disci
pllnoevonfora moment. This Is wrong, ns a
little reflection will prove.
''My attention was attracted tothlsflold tor
Investigation attar my house hnd been robbed
for the second time this fall. Thn work was
done by professionals on each occasion, and by
war of a tradomark they lott behind all our
plated ware with n holo burned through the
plate of each piece by acid. It was unkind ot
them, but thon you can't expect a professional
to burden himself with plated ware, nnd It was
all In their lino of business, nnyway. These
two cleanouts wore accomplished desplto an
electrlo burglar alarm and a fierce dog. It oe
ourrod to mo thon that Instoad ot relying on
electricity and a dog It might Lowoll to make
a personal study of a few burglars In captivity,
and as a result of my observations dovtse some
nsw schemes for fooling them.
"Several days later tho newspapers an
nounced that the New York police had captured
threo well-known professional housobrenkors,
and. making my own losses an excuse for the
visit, I went to Police Headquarters and asked
for an opportunity to seo thom. They wero not
strapping big fellows, as I had oxpoctod, and
none ot them carried a dark lantorn. I talked
with tho loader ot tho gang, and ho readily
answered my questions about his age and his
name. He volunteered the Information that
his picture was U37 in tho Rogues' Gallery,
and the scamp was actually proud ot It
" ' You are a bright appearing fellow.' said I
'and I don't see why you should beW burglar.
Why are you a burglar?'
" ' Will you promlao not to tell the police If I
tell you?' he asked anxiously,
" I will.' said I. solemnly.
" 'Lean over till I whisper It.' ho said, and as
I leaned near him he whispered, 'I burgle to
buy rum.'
" ' Ruml' said I. 'Whnt a depraved tastol'
Isn't It?' said ho. 'but me an' me friends
have It bad. We steal for rum."
" Before I could pursue this tntorestlng sub
Jeotfurthortho Dotecttvo Sorgennt hustled the
mon back to their cells, I felt, however, that I
was on the vorgo of a great discovery, and rum
was Its keynote. I pride mysolf, you know, on
bslng logical. By deductions which were not
extraordinary, I solved the burglar problem to
my own satisfaction. Professional burglars
stole for rum. Tho silver and jowels which they
gathered wore translated Into rum bv means
ot the pawnshop If thoy had such a thirst for
rum why not place rum where they might, cot
It before they gathered In your ellvor
ware. Don't you see tho simplicity and
beauty of the scheme? Justplaco a generous
quantity of rum on your dining-room tabln at
night with slight luncheon to help It along,
very much as you would spread flypaper. Enter
a burglar or burglars, who find tho rum and
drink It to a state of intoxication. In the
morning you descend to lour dining room, tio
up your burglars and summon tho police. That
is much less expensive than losing your silver
and having your plated ware cut up with acid.
, " Havo I tested it ? Well, yes. aftertho fash
ion that exceptions prove the rule. I filled a
large decanter with the strongest rum I could
buy. and every night for a week I lert It on"mv
dining room table with glasses nnd a light
luncheon handy. I slept soundly those nights.
If any nofso had aroused mo I would havo con
cluded that It was made by a professional
burglar drinking my rum. and when I wanted
to catch him In the morning I would find him
helpless Two mornings ago as I came down
to breakfast the cook said:
" ' We've beon touched again, sir. and all the
new silver Is gone and the plated nare ruined '
"'Let no nno enter the dining room until I
examine It,' I said.
"Her story was true, and there on the table
was ray 'rum decanter empty and all th
luncheon eaten, it was evident to me. en
tirely by logical processes of tho mind, that the
job Inside was the exclusive work of one bur
glar. Thore was my burglar theory upset.
The man drnnk an enormous quantity of rum.
and not only got away with it. but with nil my
now silverware as well. Theoretically my bur
glar trap was adequate, nnd If It had fallod
there mast be some logical reason forlt. No
ordinary man could drink- that amonnt of mm
and walk away. But then the ordinary man
cannot eat glass in museums. I havo seen
mon lunch from glnss tumblers and broken
window-panes as ir thoy i-njoyed It. As I was
thinking It all over the nook said with glee:
" ' Ol'm glad Oi chated the beggar outof some
of the rum. though me conscience prickod me
atthetolme. Ut did. sout did.'
"'What is your meaning, Bridget?' said I.
Ut was this way. sorr? said Bridget. 'The
Iceman is me stiddy. sorr, an' ho told mo how
the doctor had recommendod rum for his t'roat
like an'as you didn't drink ut. sorr.Olgavehlm
a little.
"'How often. Bridget?'
"Onet evory hour for threo evenings, sorr.'
But the decanter was full,' I said.
'..That's one on th burglar, sorr.' said
Bridget. Ivery time 01 took out a drink 01
poured In like a littlo water, aorr.'
"That was why my burglar trap didn't
work. There was iust enough rum In the
wator to inspire hfm for his work. It's all
rignt now. though. Ihnve a bottle nt rum for
the Iceman's throat, and Bridget keopsthat
The decanter is filled with the strongest kind
of rum. nnd I have warned Bridget nover to
.touch it. because it's poisoned. I have taken
down my burglar alarm und given away my
dog. I have Industriously spread the report
that I have bought a lot ot solid silver, and I
will guarantee that thonnxt burglar who comes
for It will run up against that rum und perish
miserably In the attempt to satisfy his thirst.
It's so simple that I wonder some man did not
discover It before."
