priaie to call attention to an ingcnl- J
ous device of ail < <rly American
I economist. Joseph Wan on. for ledue-l
ins and fairly apportioning the time)
spent in shopping. Tiic "time stores"!
mat he started in the Socialist com-,
munities at Now II i.- niony, Ind., and ;
Modern Times? now Itrcntwood?l.ong
Island, weru eauipped with clocks to
measure the number of minutes ab
sorbed in making each * ilu. When the
clerk started to wait on a customer
he set the dial, and when he had lln
ished he notrd the ciapsid time. lie
then added to the bill such part of his
day's wages as corresponded to the
fraction of his day that he had con
sumed in attending upon the customer.
This system, if introduced into our
department stores, would speed up pur
chasing marvelously for the bargain
hunter. On the other hand, the ladies
who enjoy shopping could spend all
the time they liked .<t the amusement,
only tlicy would pay for it by the
hour as for a taxicah, instead of ?!.row
ing the cost ot as now, upon the
store or rather upon those who da.-h
in. buy something and out again. The
customer with a conscience would not
as now be wotrir-d or hurried into i n
Inconsiderate purchase by the thought
that she wan too slow in making up
her mind, for lie would find it worth
her while to pay the extra 20 or 50
cents aii hour to get ju.t what she
wanted. On the other hand, the shoj
girl could cea..'? to be impatient and
snippi>h. It would indeed be "no
trouble to show goods" if she knew she
was being pail for every minute she
so spent.
