Competition with houses that sell hv
mail is often a problem which the
merchants' association in smaller
towns and cities seek to solve. System
recently asked a number of represen1
'ative associations wtrat they belive is
the best way to handle thi3 ploblem.
Five typical replies are given in the
following paragraphs.
(1) "We believe that real service,
a willingness to exchange articles not
satisfactory to the purchaser, excellent
catalog descriptions of the mer|
chandise and?to some extent?price
I reductions, hav? made mail order
j houses successful; and we believe that
! when the local merchant learns How to
' make real salesmen of his clerks, when
; he himself learns what real service
| means and knows how to control his
i own business, the mail order business
in this state will begin to decline."
1 (2) "One of our main objects in
j organizing is to hold business at home
} and place a price on merchandise that
will give a saving to the mail order
'customer. We are planning a monthly
house organ, to be issued to the
farmers in our 'buying community.
j naming articles that can he oougni
here at mail order prices, with a mer!
chant's guarantee back of them."
| How Some Merchants are Fighting
Ontside Competition.
I (3) "We cooperate as far as we can
to keep trad-e from going to mall orj
der houses and nearby cities by promoting
the 'Buy in Freeport' idea. In
. this connection, let me say that I think
I the solution of the buy-at-horoe probj
lem is largely up to the home meri
chants. The smaller merchants in a
: city like this are perhaps too prone
: to condemn buying 6way from the city
without taking active steps to rea
lize tnat tney must aaopi progressive
methods of doing business; and that
they must give service and goods which
will persuade people they can buy at
home as well as or better than they
; can plsewhere. When the merchants
M peopl? know more about their
(brr;iness through advertising, and
; v^en they po after business with
J something of the progressive methods
j their successful competitors use, then
! they will solve to a certain extent J
i the buy-at-home problem. There are
1 some merchants, of course, who do
this, and they are not the ones who
"j complain most about the mail order!
j houses and people going to other cities.
C4) "Pav no attention to mail or;der
competition, is our advice. We
j urge members to make their goods
j worth buying, and their store service
; inviting. We believe that ' personal
cmitact and s-eins: before paying will
business, if other conditions sre
attractive. "A'e advise pursuing the
same policy with regard to energy
cities. Our retail stores draw trade
from forty-nearby cities, and this
! trarlp ic pro-wine- lareer everv vear.
(5) "We have found thaf the less
j that is said about irfail order houses,
the better for the merchants in the
town. An active campaign against
them will create new business for thp
mail order houses instead of for us."

Is it possible to make eight bales

agricultural journal, The Countr>
Gentleman, which says, editorially:
Down in Alabama lives Sam McCall,
eighty-one years old, who for

of unbelief to farmer*; living at a dls- 1

see his littlo place, an-? the National '
Department of Agriculture issued a
bulletin 0'.> Ms farm. He is credited
with having made lit'ty bushels of
oats, fifty bushels of corn and a bale
of cotton on one acre in one year.
He made a five hundred pound bale of
cotton an one-eighth of an acre and
had an unrealized ambition to raise
nine bales of cotton, which he had
figured out as a poesib-e yield, on om*~

In a way he was a very successful

Mrs. Jarnagin, an aged lady of
Greenville, was walking aiong a street
in the suburbs of Jreenville last
Sunday night, on her way home from
church, and was run down by an automobile
and killed. It was stated
that the automobile, which was running
at a high rate of speed, did aot
stop after striking the lady, although
she was dragged for some distance.
The machine disappeared in the darkness
before the occupants could be
identified, and so far there is no clut
eTs to their identity.
It is to be assumed that the Greenville
officers will put forth every effort
to apprehend the people who
were in the machine. This was a
clear case of murder, if there ever
was one. Reckless driving such as
was displayed in this case amounted
tc malice, and when a peron is kill
