THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1929 LUCAS STORE IS 90 ANDBK SALE WILL CELEBRATE EVENT Small Place of 1899 Has Grown to Proportions of One of the Northwestern Emporiums A. W. MUNDY IS ITS GENIUS Purchaser of Business Three Years Ago Operating on a Policy of Expansion The Lucas store tomorrow will be gin celebrating its thirtieth anni versary. There is a lot of Bismarck mercantile history wrapped up in that period. To fittingly observe it, the big store is putting on the greatest sale of merchandise in the history of the city. Thus the community par ticipates in the celebration both prac tically and sentimentally. The community, in fact, is part of the big store. Thirty years of mer chandising to its wants have estab lished a strong bond between the Lucas institution and the wide trad ing territory of which Bismarck is the hub. What Wanamaker’s long has been to Philadelphia, the Lucas store is to Burleigh county. It is the com munity emporium because of its busi ness policy, its large stocks and its trading appeal to the people. Though this is the thirtieth anni versary of the store, it is but three years since the present management has had the business. At that time A. W. Mundy bought the store, which had been conducted by A. W. Lucas. Since then E. O. Mundy has Joined with the purchasing brother as a partner in the business. Prior to the purchase, three years ago, A. W. Mundy was manager of the store. Mundy Former Manager When the new owner of the busi ness took it over it already had felt the impulse of his business ability, for as manager he had had the op portunity to direct it in channels of service and develop it in line with merchandising progress. There has been steady growth since then, every year adding to the efficiency, the completeness and the popular appeal of the store. 1 Back of this development that has carried the Lucas store up from its small beginnings 30 years ago, there is the evidence of intelligent policy toward the community of which it has been a landmark. A. W. Mundy be lieves in the principle of service. He has had the requisite experience and training in the buying and selling field to know Just how best to ap ply that idea. He compares his store to a service station for the public, in fact. He believes in giving that serv ice as an obligation, with dignity and efficiency. This policy has resulted in an ex pansion of the business from what it was when bought three years ago by Mr. Mundy. Then there was no base ment to the place. That has be come one of the big departments of the store since opened with a wide variety of goods and with its popu lar lunch room. The lunch room, in fact, has become one of the chief ex cellences of the store. It is known throughout the whole trading area of Bismarck for the fine quality of its home cooking and is the rallying point of a vast body of patrons in the busy hours of the day. Another addition to the business of three years ago is the beauty shop. That is filling a community need and is enjoying a large and fastidious clientele. The shoe department of the store hase been built up also. Easier access to it has been established by provid ing an entrance from the main store. Stocks have been enlarged and var ieties of footwear multiplied in keep ing pace with the needs and tastes of its patrons. Recently the store added the new annex. 30 by 50 feet in ground di mensions. and one story in height. This is giving relief to the pressure of ready-to-wear stocks on the main floor and is providing space also for types of dry goods.

XOW co OX WITH THE STORY CHAPTER VII *ir\LE man Cunningham la a stubborn old fool!'* The statement was made with heat while the speaker glared at his listener as though he challenged him to contradict it. But Brent seemed in no way inclined to do so. He merely nodded with Interest and Bruite went on. “There wasn’t a prettier girl In these parts than Evangeline Cun ningham.” he said. “Proud too, but sweet and friendly. Not like the old man, who’s always been a bit better’n anybody else. Sort of swollen up with ingrown pride. Ho couldn’t conceive of Evangeline marrying anyone of less importance than a Cunningham. Her falling in love had nothing to do with It In Cyril’s opinion. There wasn’t any room in his mind for understand ing a thing like that. “So she ran away. And why wouldn’t she? Locked up in her room and forbidden to send word to her lover? You couldn’t do things like that to a high-spirited girl in those da) r s anymore than 3'ou can do it now.” Bruite paused for breath and Brent said quickly, sympathetic ally: “That's right; you can’t.” “But she never left her husband and came back home to repent in luxury like so many girls do when they leave a wealthy family to marry » poor man. Evangeline stuck to her choice but I guess she’d have been better off If she’d had a little less of the old man's stubborness herself, for I’ve heard that sho had a hard time with NelHn." Again Bruite paused, and he seemed to have lost some of his fire. Brent prompted him with a crafty question. “Perhaps.” he raid, “she didn’t have any children to worry about.” Bruite rose to the bait. “She had one child,” he responded and hur ried on to explain hew he knew that much was certain. “I saw the letter she wrote her father, telling him about the little girl and ask ing help for her. The letter threw old Cunningham into a rage and I was scut for to bring something to quiet his nerves. He never men tioned Evangeline's name or the letter either, but the butler, who'd been with the family for years, had raved the torn up pieces. He told me about It—said he recognized the handwriting and wanted to know how the young lady was get ting along.” • • • 64 ]V’ATURALLY,” Brent agreed. ~ “And I suppose Cunningham never answered the letter.” “I don't know about that, “Bruite the store In three years can possibly best be measured in the size of the staff now serving there. Three years ago there were about 35 persons, now there are more than 100 employed there. As Bismarck expands, this store continues to expand and prosper. The day may be not far distant when the present floor space will bo found in sufficient again, and it is not beyond the bounds of early possibility that the Lucas establishment will be Bis marck's double-deck store, a two story emporium supplying the need of its ever-increasing public. At any rate, the expansion of the Lucas business has been a notable instance of merchandising. Thirty years ago it started, as pioneers of Burleigh county can well remember, a little retail place adjoining the present department store, operated by Lucas and O’Hara. The two partners were able to attend to all its business. But it grew from the start. Later it passed into the hands of the Lucas company. Then, with the death of A. W. Lucas, in 1933, It was operated by Mrs. Lucas and her brother, Dr. C. H. Kohler. Three years ago they sold out to Mr. Mundy, who retained the clerical force and department heads and set about making the place one of the business lnstltutiods of the North west. How well be has succeeded the big anniversary sale to begin Thurs day morning In celebration of the 10 years existence of the store will amply demonstrate. 700 Head of Cattle Bring About 150,000 Bowman, N.

Does anyone know that?” “t never heard,” Bruite told him. “But I’d think,” Brent began, taking a new tact, “that It Nellin was the sort of man to make his wife unhappy he'd have been after Cunningham for money.” Bruite grunted. “H’m, well, maybe he was, but It's my gues3 that he had a kind of eccentric pride of his own. I knew him slightly. Never thought much of him but I wouldn't have said any thing worse of him than that he was irresponsible." Brent held out his cigaret case, "Smoke?" he invited. Bruite ac cepted and Brent put the case back in his pocket before saying any thing more. “Then the story ends there?" he Inquired smoothly. “So far »s I know," Bruite amended. “Wp haven’t seen hide nor hair of the Xcllins since she went away with him. That’s a long time ago. about 20 years, I should say. The old man's had plenty of time to regret his harshness." “So he has regretted it?” Bruite shook h!s head. “If he has. no one around here seems to know it. He keeps pretty much to himself, never gclng out, and hav ing little company. Mr. Greaves. Bank Committee to Consider Loaning On Storage Grain Fargo, N. D., Sept..3s.—The ques tion of loaning money to farmers cm North Dakota grain storage certifi cates as security will be discussed at a special meeting of the executive committee of the North Dakota Bank ers association in Fargo Thursday. Governor George F. Shafer, who spent several days in Minneapolis last week conferring with officials of the Northwest Bancorporatlon and the First Bank Btock corporation over the matter, will attend the meeting. One Grow Ready The first result of Governor Shaf er’s conferences in Minneapolis was made known when officials of the First Bank Stock corporation an nounced in Minneapolis that negoti able warehouse certificates for grain stored on North Dakota farms Im mediately will beootne an effective agency of credit. Officials of the Northwest Bancor poratlon are expeeted to make a simi lar M"* Approximately 400,000 bushels of grain are representd by application* for storage certificates which have been filed with Oliver Knndson, Rate grain commissioner, to date. Applications running as high as « or'so a day have oome to the office la the last few weeks, ths average number being more than 35 s day, iff Knudson said. Shortly after the First Bank Cor poration nude ita announcement, the Intermediate Credit honk of St. Full made known the authorisation of lINONO loan to the Farmers’ Union for purposes of making advances to fanners on their grain stdrage eer tifteates. This Is the first time that the Federal Intermediate Credit cor poration has. authorised a loan to a farmers’ cooperative for such form of credit. Have Had Tremble One of the difficulties in connec tion with the operation of the state’s new grain stongc act has been in getting its certificates of storage ac cepted at all sources of credit as se curity. it was anticipated that the private banks ef ths state weuM ac cept them, but ths font of 'grsgtt was his attorney, pays him a call now and then, and Dr. Ralston is in fairly regular attendance. Aside from them he sees practically no one.” “I see," Brent mused. “Mr. Greaves, an attorney, and his phy sician. Is the old gentleman fail ing?” “Yes. quite rapidly.” “I see.” Brent said again. “Per haps he is making a belated search for his daughter." “He’ll die unrelenting. Is my opinion,” Bruite predicted. * • • "DRENT closed his note-book with a sudden finality. “Well,” he said brightly, “I'm much obliged to you Indeed, Mr. Bruite, for the In formation you've given me. It will make a great story.” “Now you be careful what you write,” Bruite cautioned him un easily. “And perhaps you’d best not quote me directly," he added, his apprehension that he had said too much growing upon him. “If the story is accepted, and I’m certain it will be," Brent assured him. “I’ll let you see a copy of It before It is published." “That's fine,” Bruite said with genuine' relief. “When can 1 ex pect it?" “8oon," Brent promised, “unless It Is turned down. In the event that you do not receive a copy you will know that happened. So long, and thanks very much.” Bent left, congratulating himself upon his success. So far NeUln’s story had been verified. “A damned good thing I took care to make myself hard to recognise It that babbling Bruite should see me again," he told himself, think ing of his careless, rainy day nttira so new that even the Intermediate Credit corporation, formed to make loans to farmers’ cooperatives, had to set up new machinery, provide new safeguards, etc. In the mean time. the private banks have not gone into this field of credit, but Thursday’s meeting was called for the purpose of considering plans for it, formulating some definite program and otherwise setting up the neces sary machinery. Enderlin Officials To Explain Reasons For Grocers* Arrest Fargo, N. D.. Sept. 25.—City offi cials of Enderlin, N. D., will be re quired to show cause before Judge Andrew Miller in Fargo Oct. 4 why they should not be restrained from interfering with' the activities of agents of the Orand Union company, dlrect-to-oonsumer grocery distribu tors, as the result of an order obtained from the Fargo judge by J. M. With erow, Moorhead attorney, who rep resent* the company. The litigation follows the arrest on two ooeaalona, in July end in Sep tember, of a solicitor for the company by Enderlin officials on charges of peddling without a license, the at torney stated. The solicitor was fined $lO and ooats In municipal court In the Morth Dakota elty and an appeal was taken to the district court In Ransom oounty. The company, in its or der, that the or dinance is Invalid and unconstitu tional so far as It relates to Inter state commerce, setting forth that the Orand Union organisation is in aeons ***** that its agents deliver groeerim two weeks following the fill ing of orders, and therefore cannot bo classed as peddlers. The company has customers in many of the smaller towns in the arm about Enderlin, Mr. Witherow said. Listed as defendants in the action are Oeorge 8. Baxter, mayor; Tim A. Francis, city attorney, end Chris Wold, chief of police of Enderlin. Leaves ef garlte were formerly be lieved to keep vampires away tram ptopia who were Hmol and the foresight that had prompt ed him to leave his car out of sight from the drugstore. It would be rather difficult, he fancied, for anyone to see the sloucby newspaper man in the well- 1 dressed Leonard Brent who looked for all the world a bone fide man about-town. After only one meet ing. at any rate. He drove back to New York with a feeling of immense satisfaction. His work pleased him well. A few more questions put to Charles Nellin, an Interest in the old ruin that would lead to finding a plaea for him where he would bo out of the way—“and the rest will bo easy,” Brent gloated. At his hotel he found a message from Carmel and he telephoned her to say briefly that he could not accept her dinner invitation. Car mel hung up in a rage. She knew that Brent was breaking off with her, but she was not so desperately in love with him that she let her self be driven to reckless measures to hold him. * • • YJRENT smiled and called up " Helen immediately. This he did but rarely. It delighted the girl, whose voice came to him throbbing with her stlrred-up emotions while she asked when he was coming up to school again. Brent replied that it would be soon, and showed an eagerness on his own account to see her that Helen found a trifle puszling but exceedingly thrilling. Brent cautioned himself not to show too sudden a change toward her and cut short their conversa tion while Helen was still hoping that it had only begun. Then he went to look for Charles Nellin at the cheap little coffee house on the side street. He en tered the place with the conviction that he would find his man. But he looked around In vain. Finally the waiter who had served him the night before saw him near the door and came quickly over to him. “Are you looking for the old fel low, sir?” he asked. Brent nodded. “Has he been about this evening?" he Inquired. “No sir, he hasn’t He didn’t come back.” Brent frowned. “I might have expected it," he said lightly. “Peo ple who need help have generally made themselves so by being im possible to help," he generalised loftily. “But you don’t happen to know what’a become of him?” he added more definitely. “I can’t say, sir. But I don’t think it would ba far wrong to look for ’im at the nearest flop house, seein’ as how he had money for a bed.” “Thank you,** Brent returned briefly and handed over a goodly tip. “Do you, by any chance, know where the nearest flop house ia lo cated?" he asked. The waiter permitted himself a grin. "Sure I do, sir." he replied. "Down the street to the next corner east and then to the right three doors. Hope you And ’em, sir. He looked like a guy who’d seen bet ter deye. Thank you sir.” Brent followed the directions given him end in a few minutes reached the cheap lodging house. His inquiries there were fruitless until he asked for the manager. That philanthropic gentleman told him in n few words whet had be come of Nellin. "We had a guy hers last night that answers the description ef the man you’re lookin’ for," he said, “but the name was Owens.” "Does he come here often?” Brent Inquired. "He did," the other replied, "but he won’t como again.” (To Bo Continued) 1 ' ' a !
