THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG
The political cat is out of the bag.
The argus eyed political reporter of
the Grand Forks Plaindealer has rifted
the clouds and let the sunlight
through. And this, too, notwithstand­
ing the fact that an attempt was mtide
to mislead the Plaindealer man by a
registry for room 264 in the Hotel
Dacotah at Grand Porks, when room
110 was t}ie apartment pregnant with
the political future cxf North Dakota
Note the precision with which the
Plaindealer gives numbers of rooms,
umbrella checks, and like important
particulars.
The Plaindealer has unearthed the
whole mystery. It says that Senator
Hansbrouigh, Jud LaMoure and Billy
Budge held a political conference in
room 110 of the Hotel Dacotah. There
were oither politicians in the city, says
the Plaindealer, but it could not be as­
certained whether they were at the
conference or at the town pump water­
ing the norses. But the Plaindealer
is satisfied they knew what was on the
string. Wilth thie exception of Billy
Budge, says the Plaindealer^ all of
those present at the' conference lefit
the city on the morning's trains.
There having been three at the meet­
ing and one left behind, the morning

But the plot grows thicker. The
Plaindealer tells us in the next breaith
or two-'that "those who are supposed
tc be in the ctnfldence of the, leaders
are looking wise and saying nothing."
Here is a distinct, clew. It would re­
quire no .Shtirlook Holmes to fojjo\f
this to tlifr uiirft'veing of .the Whofe
mystery. But •virheri there is addM to
this the startling information thait
"the rank and file of the party axe
discussing the matter from every pos­
sible standpoint," the situation is too
plain to be mistaken.
Then there is the supreme court
judgship. We are told that "it is
looked upon as a foregone conclusion
that the matter was thoroughly dis­
cussed." Again is the information
"that Senator Hansbrough is desirous
of succeeding himself/ is not denied,
this also was discussed." While the
construction here is a little lame, the
information is what may be termed
"hot stuff." What a nose the Plain
dealer has for news!
The Plaindealer says there are
wheels within wheels in politics but
admits that not all of them were
started going at the conference. Ajflter
wading through the Plaindealer's col
jimn of information we cannot resist
the belief thait the wheels of the polit­
ical editor were among those that were
started going. And they got a good
start, too!

Minneapolis Journal: The exten­
sion of the Soo line towards the Mis­
souri .river causes another shifting of
the stage routes of the Missouri river
section of the Daicotas. The Soo is
about completed to Pollock, within 20
miles of the river and Ft Yates. A
large majority off the freight and pas­
senger business for the fort and all of
that part of interior Dakota will be
done by way of the new station. For
years the stage lines from Bismarck
have had this traffic which in summer

they divided wilth the boats. The
Northern Pacilc secured the haul to
Bismarck. The new arrangement!
gives the business to the Soo. The
Missouri slope country is discussing
the purpose of two surveying parities
which began work in that 'part of
North Dakota a few days ago. It Js
believed that the Northern Pacific
plans an extension from Bismarck
south along the riV^r iii order to tlifr
the Fort Yates country. Cattle is the
principal industry.
In addition to cutting the Northern
Pacific out of considerable business
the new Soo extension brings the"road
into some very choice territory hith­
erto monopolized by the Milwaukee.
Cattle and whealt shipments in the
northern counties of South Dakota east
of the river are on the increase. The
Soo will divide a nice portion of this
business with the Milwaukee.
BAR THE) TRAMPS.
The Great Northern road has just
issued orders forbidding trainmen to
allow tramps to ride on freight or any
class of trains under any circu
stances, and insisting that train
must be looked over more carefully at
all stops, and the tramps put off.
Several roads have commenced an in­
vestigation into the alleged practice
of trainmen to allow hoboes to ride by
the payment of a small fare. This
I practice will be stamped out.
NOT SO BAD.
Foruim: There have been so many
reports of disappointment among
farmers as to the crop yield, that many
have an idea that this year has been
practically a failure in that respect,
espeiially in the Red River valley. It
i^ true that ine yields have not been
so large as expected, but there has
been no failure by a long way. Bus­
iness men assert that collections are
not bad, that they are not dissatisfied
with results thus far and feel that
things will come out all right, in har­
mony with the first class trade during
the summer.

MAIL ORDERS
WHAT LOCAL MERCHANTS
SHOULD DO TO HEAD OFF THE
BIG DEPARTMENT STORES QF
THE EAST.
A cry is going all over the country
that the big mail order houses with
their ponderous catalogues are driving
the country retailer out of existence.
In almost, every recent convention
of stalte associations some one has
risen to explain. And the plaint is
usually this
"We can sell just as cheaply, and,
in some cases cheaper, than the mail­
order houses, and ye!t our customers
persist in sending their money away
ffirom home in paying freight charges,
and so on in selecting from a cata­
logue, instead of the goods themselves.
The trouble is that they don't know
that we can do just as well, or better,
for them at home."
Tie last sentence tells the whole
story—the people don't know.
""The mail-order house sends its cat­
alogue with its alluring low prices—

like that"—and (the order Is sent out
of town.
The retailer would be aggrieved if
anybody were to intimate to him that
the mail-order houses away off in the
big cities had more classified knowl­
edge about the people in his territory
than he .possessed himself.
Yet he seies the result oi tliat knowl­

How many retailers have a carefully
kept mailing list? How many see to
it that they not only have such a list,
but that the people on that list are kept
constantly in mind of the fact that
they sell certain things at such and
such prices?
The retailer has the remedy for this
mail-order nightmare in his own
hands.
Study the methods of the mail-order
houses—it's a queer game that two
can it play at, you know.
If you have any inducements to offer
that will keep trade at home—don't
eep a good thing to yourself—tell
ybur customers about it.
th:

If you can sell goods as cheaply, or
cheaper, than the mail-order house—
your money drawer won't show it, if
nobody outside of yourself knows it.
Now here's a straightforward ques­
tion "What are you doing to keep
trade at home?
Are you talking interestingly in your
newspapers about the new goods that
just caime in, how good they are, how
lititle they cost, whaJt they are, what a
good store you have, about your bright,
clean stock, and how well you can
serve your trade?
How often do you go down into your
pocket and pay the printer for pro­
ducing a handsome little booklet?
Do you ever gelt out a little paper off
your own, and fill its columns with
bright and chatty talk about your
goods and service?
Does your trade know as much
about your store as it does about the
inside of the big miail-ord^r house cat­
alogue?
Answer these questions satisfactor­
ily,^and there won't be so much talk
about the "ruinous competition" of

the •mail-order houses.
Fight them with their own weapons
—good advertising.
Have a well-kept mailing list, just
as they do.
Buy as much newspaper space as. you
eati Afford, and fill it with good bus­
iness talk—sitore news.
Send out a bright lititle booklet at
certain seasons.
ttaW some little package slips
printed, and gee ithat one goes out wilth
each bundle.
Take half a dozen articles from the
catalogues quote the catalogue prices,
and iput your own prices beside them.
Show your trade the folly of order­
ing 'goods by mail, paying freight
charges, etc., when they can buy them
just as cheaply of you have the ac­
tual goods to Belect from and keep*
their money at home.
Dont call on their town pride—
that's whining. Give them good and
sound reasons—hard-dollar reasons
why they should buy of yoU instead of
the mail-order houses.
Be up and doing, blow your born,
infuse some new enthusiasm into your
advertising. Show the peoole of your
town that you are very much alive
that your goods are just as up-to-da'-.e
and fresh and good, and cost just as
lilttle as any they can buy out of town.
And so you will live content in the
enjoyment of the trade that is yours
by right.—Advertising World
