M A CO-OPERATIVE STORE CAN ' BE MADE SUCCESSFUL ( A co-operative store has beon made a success In Boston There are many 'ts similar stores In England, but in the I United States they are few The ! 'net that 100') persons can become associated in buying goods and in .'; ! that way sare money is something I worthy of our attention. Here In Ogden, the union men opened a co operative store, hoping thereby to keep down the high cost of living The concern had a very' brief exlst- Icnce and finally failed to meet all obligations and had to close Its door? With the many failures in mind, wo were thoroughly Interested In the headlines of nn eastern publication which proclaimed 'he success of at least one Institution In which the pa trons were welcomed to share In the profils.

A lit hoston co-operative store was orlgi nally confined to bank clerks. Each .-hareholder w as to pay In 110 for membership. The beginning was slow until the rule waa changed and mem bershlp fee? were made payable at Jl a month for in months instead of fin In a lump The clement? that entered Into the Miccess of the undertaking are thus j related The committee decided to select a Bite having sufficient passing traffic t insure the store's success whether member? traded there or not. Future ' .lerience proved the wisdom of this step: Strange as It may seem, the word I Stylish Men Come j Here for Their Clothes MANY a man in town has told us that wc have transformed him in appear ance and in spirit by dress ing him in Stratford Clothes These garments of cul ture impart a snap and dash to a man's' spirit that is worth while.

STRATFORD CLOTHES Pricct Range From $15.00 to $35.00 ! Buchmiller & Flowers "Dressers of Men." 2461 Washington Ave. 7s$5ri "Co-operative" in a store sirii tends to keep away transient trade. Dis interested street paeserB are apt to aasnme that only shareholders may trade at the store. Or else they ar K-ue that 'somebody is getting rake-off which the outsider payi tor Knowledge of this attitude, com bined with It? Ions name, moved the I Co-operative Society of Bank Men to call ita store "Devonshire Market." after the street on which it is sit uated. The casual visitor may make a purchase at the Devonshire Mar kct without knowing that ho is pat ronizing a co-operative store. W hen his wife unwraps the bundle she will find an attractive printed circular briefly outlining the purposes of the society and Inviting the family to subscribe for a share of stock. This unobstrusive method brings results. A co-operative c.roer store should do more than merely share profits It should set a standard for pure foods And these should be handled in a sanitary manner The Co-operative Society of Bank .Men has departed from the usual co operative way of sharing promts-. The plan is this: Goods are sold to ev erybody at market prices. Sharehold ers receive a monthly rebate of f per cent on their purchases. Further profits of the business arc divided In the usual manner The rebate to shareholders keeps them loval It en courages nonmembers to join. This plan may not be orthodox, but it is popular By reducing the cost of liv ing the co-operative society leaves It members more of a surplus to put i in the bank i lie sjsiem onngs in tne sirac glers It frequently happens that i man who needs the benefits of co operation will not become a share holder because he Is suspicious of the motives actuating those who ask him to Join Poverty or hard luck may have put a misanthropic twist in his perspective. "No sir. won't get no $10 outaii me," he Is very apt to say. "I'm hep to them kinda crimes. I am W ouldn't mind the job o' goin' round plckin' up $10 bills, myself " Another class of men fail to be come shareholders in co-operative stores because they never get to the point of breaking away from the con venience of charge accounts, unlim ited free delivery, and "service." The v omen folk do not like the bother ot marketing, and the men folk do not like to carry bundlleu Which is all very well for incomes in proportion Two big holes In the profit bag of a store run for gain are free deliver;, o! small parcels and the credit sys tem. Here Is where co-operative stores can educate shareholders to some purpose. The loss from bad bills plus the cot of free delivery will run from A per cent of sales In a large store to 8 or lu per cent In a small store Co-operators should have it Im pressed upon them that these con veniences do not go with bottom prices. Things that must be delivered, such as flour, co-operators should be en couraged to purchase in quantities. And the best way to encourage them is to make it worth while The Dev onshire Market recently distributed a carload of flour direct from tho warehouse The store made 30 cent a barrel, and shareholders saved $1 a barrel, less the cost of delivery, 26 cents. Unless a co-operative store Is win ning Its patrons to become share holders, and then to buy in quanti ; ties and pav cash, it has very little excuse for exlstiug. A co-operative lion that accepts prevailing trade customs and makes no effort to bet- j ter them falls In its mission. The aim of co-operative storekeep- ; ing is, or should be, to establish a ' more direct connection between pro- ! d'icer and consumer It is possible, ! I even now, for the co-operath c asso- j j ciatlons of this country to Inaugurate a belter system of distribution, a sjs I tem whereby the food producers of the rural districts through their co operative associations shall sell dl rect to the food consumers of the i cities through their co-operative as- ! eoelations. The one thing needful seems to be some sort of a clearing hoube to ad just supply and demand At first this might be a bureau of distribution, where consumers would pool their orders, and to which producers would look for advice regarding favorable markets Private enterprise, being largely concerned with money-making, has complicated the distribution of food I stutfs. It has built up a system that . doubles and trebles the price of food i product in getting them from pro ducer to consumer. oo RECOGNITION OF THE STENOGRAPHER Collier's pays tribute to the sten cgrapher in theae words: "Who else knows us half ao well'.' She hps heard all that we have said j and then made note of it. She has read our Incoming letters She knowa who pleadi with us for help and : what ww do 'about It. Do we write frankly or evasively, she follow the straight-hewed line or the curve of our deviousnew. Are we courteous only to the powerful, or ii our treat ment even to all who come seeking? The woman at our elbow hammering out our paragraphs. Is a clear-eyed witness Over the telephone voices drift in from the world, and the tone of each is caught and judged before I our presence g acknowledged. She knows whether our friends are worth v I the home happy" She knows it. She notes all our tricks of person. Our good temper, our clean speech, fly further than wc guess. She Is familiar with the state phrases we scatter over the thousand routine lotters, and is gladdened ; when we light up the languid page with an unspoiled turn She is aware when we have tumbled out from a I laden dek to a World's series ball game She, too. would enjoy Mr. Baker s versatility, but she wndes through our debris till twilight. She could keep our tardy correspondence up to the minute, hut she has to time her efficiency to our limitations. Never outpacing us, she is as loyal la -the background as our shadow." The average stenographer certain ly has an excellent opportunity of de termining the real character of her i mployer More than one man known to the outside world as noble and considerate, would have a blasted reputation, if the stenographer were to tell all she knows. Occasionally even the stenographer Is deceived, but generally that de ception has Its denouement when the honeymoon davs have passed The stenographer of late years has become a mighty factor In the at fairs of men. and as a patient, con fidential part of any business con cern is entitled to more than words of praise. oo FLOWERS ON THE CASKETS OF THE DEAD Tributes of respect for the dead tre today paid principally in flow ers beautiful, fragrant flowers. And the caskets that are being made the last couch before the final ceremcny is said are of richest design and cost 200 or more. This means that the expenses that are heaped upon the ordinary fam ilies when death enters are almost beyond their ability to pay. But no family, not in dire digress is so humble as not to seek lo give to the departed that which is the cus tom and, as a result, death brings a double calamity. Some one has said that this ex cessive offering of floral tributes should be done away with, and yet any practice of that kind is almost Impossible to correct. Here in Utah, the authorities of the dominant church might bring about a change for the better by counseling the peo ple to restrict their floral tributes to some simple offering such as a small bouquet, 00 j WEALTHY MEXICANS CROSSING THE LINE Laredo, Tex Nov 30 General ie ronlmo Trevlno, formerh commander of the Mexican army and regarded a6 one of the most Influential men in Mexico, together with the members' or his family, arrived here toda from Monterey i hey are on their way to Lo-i Ange'ei, Cal., where thev In tend to make their future home General 1'revinO, who was promt nently mentioned for the president,) of Mex Co and later imprisoned in his home ni .Monterey, w here he was liberated recently by the rebels, when they attacked ihat city, was reticent concerning Mexican affairs and re fused to express himself publicly to Intimates who visited him today pre vious o his departure for San Antonio tonight.

A Shermnn considers that ; Is no longer necessary. He maintains that the boys in the regular service : in his district have all taken up a I careful study of the forestry service J business to the extent that they are well informed and that there Is now i no reason why they thould be given I c'etall work !onger than a week or I ten days.

Fla. According to S witter In Country Life in America this new variety is going to revolutionize or ange growing throughout that part of the country. It is declared that the fruit has been known to hang on the tre for one. two, or even three years, and that the tree bears well even when it Is still carrying the crop of the previous year This is not true of most other varieties It Is also said that the fruit can be shipped as early as June, although It Is still too acid then. It iB good In July, but better In August und September "The fruit is full of Juice." Bays the quoted writer, 'and hangs on the trees through the rainy summer weather It can there fore be placed on the market when oranges are scare and the highest prices can be secured " Unique Decoration.
