Kxplana t ions of the rise center
about two principal causes ? the hig.i
vost of l:il> -r ti>t the scarcity of ma
terials Haw material lias, it I* true,
declined somewhat in price during the
past s.x months, out the decrease has
not been suiticient to overcome the ad
ditional cost of turning it into the
finished product.
Product Ion Not Art Niirmnl.
When motor car production was re
sumed about the firs: of the year, it
was expected that !>y now the fac
tories would have regained normal
production. At that t.'iie everything
pointed to a quick resumption of the
pre-war scale of manufacture. Unfore
seen condi arf" however, which
have made this impossible. Comple
tion of war contracts too'K linger than
was anticipated. Win n this was ac
complished. there was the de,ay its get
ting the machinery readjusted for
motor car production.
No manufacturer builds his car in
its entiretv. He must purchase some
parts on the outside. In litany cases
when tlie factory itself was ready to.
gro ahead the parts maker was unable
to furnish some t ecess.iry part of the
i:ar. Even .lurijiK the past ten days
dealers ha\e received cars without
tops, without hood.- or without head
lamps.
An automobile factory is an enor
mous business arid everything must
be operatirc .it exactly tlie same rate
of speed for economical production.
Too much speed or too little in one
department will upset all production
plans. Meanwhile, the overhead is
piling ur. mid the m^r? the delay the
higher it mounts h.tbor trouble* in
some plants of late have been respon- ?
sible for ileiays. with the consequent
expense.
There are not more than or.e or two
factories today that art- anywhere near
normal produ t on, and by normal pro
duction i.- meant the general average
before we went to war.
Shortapr of 1,200,000 l.ast Year.
t Last year this country produced but
about Sf'c.riftO automobiles, when nor
mally it would have turned out 2.00i'.
000. Tt". :s at the outset ieft us 1.200.
000 cars short to start with. The wave
of prosperity that has swept .this
country ;ias greatly increased th- de
mand for motor cars, until it is esti
mated that it will take more than
3.000.000 more cars to rtil the present
dem jnd.
Not only i? there a natural demand
r'or motor cars far in excess of xnv
thine even dreamed of a few years
back, but many of the larger manu
facturers are establishing new agen
cies in territories that never before
had been divided up.
Many \c?v Denier* to Supply.
The tendency of the business today
is to limit each dealer's territory to I
the amount that be can work in'ten- J
slvely. This moans there are a large
number of new dealers who must be !
given at least one carload of cars to '
get them started.
Factories that are doing this work !
now are planning for the far distant
future when cars will again be plenti
ful. When that will he no on* can I

BIG FARM FOR GEESE
NEW MISSOURI INDUSTRY
Seventy.K?nr Acres Near Monror City
Will Me I srd fur Breeding
finer.
PARIS. MO., July (>.?An exclusive
goose farm is the latest undertaking
in a poultry way in this part of the
country. The man to adopt the unique '
idea is Claud Henderson, member of a
local poultry firm, who lias just pur
chased a farm of seventy-four acres 1
near Monroe City, for which he paid
5175 an acre.
Hast year Mr. Henderson handled
30.000 geese and the venture proved
profitable beyond his most sanguine
hopes, and as tin: work was done on a
renter farm he decided to acquire land
of his own, wln*^"' he.i'could develop
ideas that he hrtd ?m-tnind for making
even greater success <?>f the undertak- ?
Ing. On the farm Henderson has every
modern device for taking <are of the
feathered stock and he pays especial
attention to see that m> disease finds
Its way into the flock.
Henderson says that by devoting his
entire time to the get se lie can get
much better results than engaging ill
regular agricultural pursuits, and it is
a more interesting business. He savs
he will confine himself to 30.000 this
season, but hopes to have double that
number by the end of the feeding sea
con this fall.

l.arge Consumption of I,rather.
With a big demand for both domestic
and foreign consumption, about the
nly limitation to trading in leather is
the disposition of sellers to confine
operations largely to goods on hand
)r en route from tanneries, says Dun's
atest review of markets. Kuropeaji
buyers, in their anxiety to replenish t
upplies, have been active in this mar
ket and the purchasing has extended
o neutral nations, whose stocks had
jecome depleted through embargoes
nd interrupted overseas transporta- j
lion facilities. The phenomenal situa
tion in leather finds reflection in the
tepidly advancing hide prices, and 'he
only apparent retriedv for the rising
tendency lies in the freer shipment of .
aw material here from other produc- ?
nc countries. Meanwhile, the cost of
ootwear is mounting steadily and ex- |
traordinary le\els are predicled for j
next fall and winter; but trade con- ,

Review of Week's
Trade in Richmond
Dun's Report on Last
Week's and Month's Vir
ginia Trade Conditions.
H. (I. Dun & Co.'s special report foi
The Tlmes-Dlspatch on conunercia!
i conditions In Richmond and Virginia
! is as follows;
I The business outlook t<s optimistl
; caliy viewed and with tihe signing "I
the peace treaty more avenues ol
i commerce were opened and the mar
j ket has broadened considerably.
In almost all lines trade Is good,
and (he principal difficulties are
j scarcity of raw material and inade
quate factory production. It becomes
increasingly apparent th-at no radical
reduction in general prices is to be
j expected, and in many lines further
advancos are underway.. Collections
' r. re good.
I.umber at wholesale is scarce and
; prices are advancing. Better grades
j are particularly in demand; oak and
' maple flooring is moving very freely.
1 There is an oversupply of the lower
' grades of box lumber, and some of
the mills cutting second-growth tim
ber are not operating until priccs for
this quality of lumber Improve. Since
the l.fting of embargoes on lumber
?he export situation Is easier.
Dealers in paints and oils say there
is an active demand for all available
goods, anil note an upward tendency
' in prices. The wCiplesule furniture
market is very active and factories
have sold their output for several
months ahead. Prices are high, and
cost of labor and raw material <are
, expected to force still further ad
vances.
Jobbers of paper and stationers'
supplies report about 20 oer cent In
creased tonnage sold, attributed partly
to larger volume of advertising. They
, experience difficulty in securing ship
ments from the mills, and prices are
, advancing- Printers and stationers
are busy and are getting good prices,
i June trade In the produce market
. was unusually 'active, and prices of
butter, eggs, poultry, etc.. are steady.
The crop of Virginia potatoes is some
what smaller than was expected, but
is bringing good prices thus far.
Wool and hides are abnormally
high. Money is firm and In demand,
but there has been (juite a little liqul
. dat Ion of cotton loans, and all legiti
mate wants are being comfortably
taken care of.

new potatoes are going actively at the
host prices yet recorded. The Bureau
of Markets reports as follows:
With little desirable old stock offered
and new stock In moderate volume for
the time of year, prices showed a tend
ency to recover a little of the con
tinuous losses of the past month. Kast

Carolina Cobblers, Including much In
ferior stock, ranged $4 to $4.50 f.o. b.

Northern markets. Oklahoma Bliss

ranging $2.25 to $2.30 per 100 sacked,
n nd advanced also in mid-western
consuming markets, rancing $2.in to
$3 50. Shipments. 2.419 cars, a decline
of 228 and about two-thirds the volume
of the corresponding time last year.
DRY GOODSIVIOVEMENT
As Consumers Shov* "WH11bcii*?? to
Stand Iflch Prices Distribution
Become* More Active.
The prospect of continued h:gh dry
goods prices has become less disturb
ing to merchants who are watchinnr
the development of demands in retail
channels, according to Pun's latest re
port Not onlv do consumers seem
'X lllng and able to meet the extreme
costs, but their wants appear to be
larcer than a year ago, and reports |
coming from Jobbers and retailers * on
firm all that has been said of an active
distribution. Even in agricultural sec
tions where full crops are not antici
pated as In the care, of cotton, farmers
are taking goodft freely, while in manu
facturing centers, where w^>rl< ,s
creasing, the high wages find reflection
In a broad movement of merchandise.
Vet the optimism of trade Interests Is
tempered with more conservatism than
recentlv. sellers preferring to operate
on short terms and buyers being less
inclined to make commitments to fore
stall advancing prices, although many
consider a further upturn Inevitable.
At the Close of, the half year prices
were higher than at the opening, and
jn several Instances above the gov
ernment levels.
Commercial Kallnre* I.put Week.
Commercial failures last week In the
Vnited States, as reported by R. O.
Pun5 <& Co.. were eighty-six against
123 the preceding week, and 172 the
corresponding week last year. Fail
ures in Canada number six. against
fifteen the preceding week, and five
last vear. Of failures last week In
the I'nlted States, thirty-nine were in
the Kast. twenty South, sixteen West,
and eleven in the Taciftc States, and
forty-two reported liabilities of $5,000
or more, against fifty-one the previous
week.

Nothing Too Trivial
THERE are betterments in merchandise that indifferent manu
facturers believe too trivial for recognition. It is because
this store takes note of the seemingly trifling things in business
that it achieves qualities which have set standards in service.
For Example: Here and there in the items carried in this store
may be found refinements that would have been ignored but for
the Constructive Merchandising that issues its dictum to manu
facturers?an extra thread to enhance strength; a button stored
in the pocket to spell convenience; a bit of selvage to prevent a
frayed edge, or some similar detail.
What may seem trivial to some people in this store becomes
SERVICE IN MERCHANDISE! And, because we have reared
our structure of prestige on such a foundation, so it must remain.

of stock for the morning's sales.
The changes to be noted came in
' the fruit lines Receipts of peaches
and new apples are much larger than
. they have been In recent days, but not J
1 !n excess of the ready demand. Marked
I improvement in the quality of these
fruits was noticeable. Prices for ?
j peaches were a little stlffer than the :
' previous week, but that was entirely
' on account of the improved quality of
the goods.
Eggs were steady all the week at 42 I
