THE BENNINGTON BANNER, FKLDA1 NOVEMBER 18, 1892.
COST OF S1IOKS.
Thattlio profits of tho meu who mako
slioes have bcen small foryears, and con
tinually fiottinR smallcr, is universally
conceded. But wo do not think it is
aiiytlriiiK liko as gencrally known that
tlicsu sarao sliocs, oiiginally sold at a
trillo abovo cost, freiuciitly flnd tholr
way into tho liauds of dcalcrs who ilis
poso of tlicm at rotail at figures which
yield thcm immcnso prollts. Wo roeii
tioncd last wcck ono caso in wlnch a ro
tailor's jmco for slioes whicli was sold
fiom tbo faotory at 85 ccuts was ?J. That
is SioO pcr ecnt. proflt. Thcro was an

to order and Workod olT in a couplo of
days bccauso thoy wero offcrcd so mupli
below tho rcgular prico, and tho advauco
on them was 112 pcr ccnt.
Wo havo somo moro to add to tho list.
ANow Kngland lnanufactuior says ho
recently saw a pair of shocs for salo in a
shoo stbro in a distaut ctty for $5. Ho
idontificd thoni as a pair of his own
manufacture, which iio had sold with a
largo invoico at $1.33. That is 305 pcr
ccnt. proflt. A New York manufacturer
supplios a rctailcr in tho neighborhood
of his factorv with a lino of shocs at
$1.70 a pair, and tho lattcr sclls them at
$0.50100 pcr ccut. proiit.
Tlicro aro niannfactuvers who havo for
years bccn producing "prico-maikcd
slmns." so-callcd that is, tho prico is
always tho sanic, whothcr tho cost of
solo icathcr is 30 ccnts a pounds or 20,
whetlier tho cost of nppcrs is 15 cents a
foot or 25. Thoy inako a laigo proflt, no
mattor how doar tho matcrial is. At tho
prcscnt markct valuo of leathor and la
bor tho proflt on a tlireo dollar shoo is
Tii per cent., of which tho niauufactur
er rcceivcs 40 pcr ccut, tho rctailcr !Mi

cqual to 5 per ceut. if he remits
Tliero is a largo cxpendituro for ad
vcrtising, which is so much reduction of
tho proiit, and it lias to bo kopt np or
tho salcs fall off dircctly. Kotailors say
that if thoy lcavo off for so short a timo
sis a week tho shrinkage of their trado is
disagrecably percoptiblo. Many veudcrs
ofpatont niedicincs havo accumulated
great wcalth by tho lavish advortising of
tlieir warcs. Tho proiluccrs of staplo
aoniraodities havo heen slower to adopt
tho liko plau, but somo of tbom haro
dono to tlieir pecuniary advantago.
It is strangc so niany pcoplo aro rcady
to pay whatovcr prices dcalcrs ask for
shoes. It is not, perhaps, altogethcr jn
conceivablo that tho woracn aro casily
imposca upon, for it is a way thoy havo.
Thoro are two kinds of fcminino shoo
buyers. Tho ouo kind aro intcnt on got
ting bargains. Thoy will buy anything,
cven if thcy havo no uso for it, if they
aro getting it cheap. If thcy seo an arti
clo "raarkcd down," thoy waut it ovon if
it is still cxtravagantly dcar. They rcad
iho nowspapers, and wheu thoy como
across advertisemonts of goods to tio
sold at a great sacriflco thoy run aftcr
thom in such crowds that they tako up
all tho room thero is in tho stores aud
buy with as much eagcrncss as if thoy
fcarcd thero would bo nothing left for
thom if they didn't hurry.
Thcn thoro aro women who will not
liavo anything for their own wear unless
tho price is high. We havo in niind a
typo of this class, an agrceablo, accom
plfshed lady, a favorito in socioty, a con
noisaeur in costumes, always olegantly
dressed. Sho was told by a fiiend that
ho was acquaintcd with ono of tho tnost
icnowned inanufacturcrs of shoes in tho
country, that ho would accompauy hcr
to his factory, and that sho could havo
her foot mcasurcd, and as fino a pair of
shocs mado as sho cver woro, for $0. Sho
declined tho offer courtcously butllrmly
and wcnt off and bought a pair for $15.
Somobody mado $10 proflt orthcreabouts
on that pair of shoes. Sho was satisficd
jnd so was tho seller.
Now, tlicro aro a good niany of both
tho sorts of womcn wo have describcd,
and thoy givo generous, ovon lavish,sup
port to tho rotail dcalcrs in shoos. We
aro told thcro aro proprictors of shoo
storcs who scll tho samo grado and
3uality of slioes at differeut prices td
iffcrent customcrs to ono at $3, to an
othcr at $1, and to another at $5. And
thoy oxcuso themselves on tho ground
that tho tho purchascrs aro bctter
suitod with tho higher than with tho
lowor price that if tho two pairs of
shoes wcro laid beforo thom, sido by
sido, preciscly aliko in overy respect, tho
fivo-dollar pair would bo selected in pro
feronco to tho thrfo-dollar pair, and tho
person who bought them could not bo
pcrsuaded that tho diffcrenco in valuo
was not greater than tho difforonco in
cost. It may bo somcthing of a strain
on a man's conscienco to tako advantago
of tho weakmindcdncss of his fellow
beings, but it is a little too much to cx
pect of anybody that he will refuso to ao
ccpt moro for whatovcr ho has for salo
than it is worth, ospecially if that is tho
only way ho has of sclling it. Somo
times it is costly to bo foolish, and it is
as woll for tho foolish to loarn that by
expericnce. Boston Journal.

Tho road was fairly good, though ' it was

with a pair of horscs, doing my own

Aftor a numhor of rods I was suddenly

"Not a bit of it Don'tbreak his nock

The drummer looked liko an athleto,
and from tho confidont smile on his face
wo had no doubt of his prowess as a
boxcr. Tho wholo crowd went overto
tho rink, and Bill was found mending a
rip in an old glovo. Ho was long and
lanky. He had whito eycbrows and a
vacaht oxprcssion in his turnip colored
oycs. A number of tho villagcrs dropped
in, and pretty soon tho drummer picked
up a glove and said:
"Wonderif thero is anyono around

As tho two 6quarcd off Bill appcared
