spoken but a few minutes before he

called upon all present to join the

then a long, tall, dark brother march

earnestly urges all Camp officers to

fact that its awnings, both in style,

word for it with their customers in

of the passer-by, Mr. Landrum has
arranged in the windows of his fa

There Was a Flourishing G.ty
in the Lowlands A Story
With a Moral
Once upon a time there was a city
in the lowlands of a great nation,
and those who were merchants in
that city waxed fat and their wealtn
grew great, and they owned main
houses and collected large revenues,
for their profits were great. and there
at they grew much puffed up. nd
it came to pass, in the fulnes's ot
time, that the people of that city
heard of other cities afar off where
merchandise could be bought much
cheaper, and they sent much money
away, and the young men wore good
clothes, and the ladies much fine
millinery and other garments that
they termed "lingerie," the meaning
wereof was unknown to the men.
And when the merchants of that city
saw these things they grew wroth,
and one of them, who was an arti
ficer of brass and fine metals, wrote
many articles and showed the peo
ple the error of their ways, and much
was said about reciprocity, by means
whereof the merchants hoped to get
back their old profits in all their
richness and abundance; but when
the people learned how great were
these profits, they rebelled against
the kings, otherwise known as the
merchants, because the husbands and
the fathers and the sons were down
cast because their yives and daugh
ters paid ninety-nine cents at a bar
gain counter for merchandise that
cost nineteen cents; and the young
men said that in the seasons when
trousers should be cut like balloons,
the merchants of said city were jeal
ous of their cloth, and the wives and
the daughters said that their habits
and their skirts and their gowns were
not fashioned by these mighty mer
chants according to the dictates of
the latest fashion bazaar. And some
iewi wise men tried to reason with
these merchants, and endeavored to
explain to them that if they would
supply the demands of the people of
thatl great city of the lowlands- at
reasonable prices; that they could
make much more money, and accu
mulate much more wealth, and the
merchants replied to the wise men,
saying: It is first necessary that we
make much more money. And there
upon the people continued to send
their money into distant lands, and
the merchants of that city were .1
perverse and obstinate set, and con
tinued to complain bitterly, and
would not be reasionedj -with, and
looked sullen, as if they had the dys
pepsia, and charged the people with
ingratitude, and the few wise men
aforesaid charged the merchants that
they had got the cart before the
horse, and told them that it they
would supply really what the peo
ple demanded and were willing to
pay for, and not attempt to force
upon the people last year's goods
at this, year's prices, and not make
all their profits on on, sale, bait
make, many sales at reasonable pro
fits, that the rebellion would .be.
rrti hrA But the merchant's rauK
mured for the flesh pots of old pro
fits, and -would not harken unto the
wise men.
And it came to pass, that the mer
chandise of the merchants of that
city grew dusty, and the customers
were few, and they took counsel of
the wise men and reduced prices and
made many sales at small profits,
and were much' astonished to find
that quick sales and small profits
brought many customers, and none
of the people of that city sent to
distant lands for merchandise, and
this was the beginning of wisdom.
for the great merchants, of that city
coiVimied -to open their eyes and
"tak-e notice," and they bandecV to
gether and put up much money, and
bought a public square, and support
ed a brass band, and contributed to
the fire department and quit "knock
ing." and looked cheerful, and their
wives fell in love with them again
because they always 4ooked pleas-
