f How a Coin Can Be Flipped Up the
y Sleeve to Mystification of Friendt
Take a quarter of a dollar between
the thumb and forefinger of the right
hand then by a
rapid twist of the
fingers w twirl the
coin by the same
motion that you
would use to spin
a teetotum at the
same time rapidly
close your hand
and the coin will
disappear up your coatsleeve you can
now open your hand and much to the
astonishment of your audience the
coin will not be there
This capital trick may be varied in
a hundred ways One good way is to
take three dimes or quarters and
concealing one in the palm of your
left hand place the other two one
each between the thumb and fore
i finger of each hand then give the coin
In the rigKt hand the twirl as already
described and closing both hands
quickly the coin in the Tight hand
will disappear up your sleeve and the
left kand on being unclosed will be
foand to contain two quarters while
that with was in the right will have
JJeJIredThus you will make the
r surprised spectators believe that you
conjsrefl the coin from tfhe right hand 1

Necessity of Advertising and Meeting
Competition Given by the Large
City Department Stores and
MallOrder Houses
The midwinter period is generally
the dullest in the retail trade Why
this is so Is hard to explain Farm
ers find a time of rest during Febru
ary and March and a portion of April
and the weather is generally such
that they like to keep by their own
firesides While the country retailers
may find a lull in business It is dif
ferent with the mail order houses The
farmers leisure time affords him a
chance carefully to go over the large
catalogues and other advertising mat
ter sent out to him and quite often
he Is attracted by the alluring de
scrlption of goods and the supposed
low prices Thus it is that the mail
order houses benefit while the local
merchant loses
lOne of the faults of the average
merchant is that during dull times he
makes no effort to increase trade Het
puts into practice a system of false
economy He generally curtails his
advertising bills and its goods re
main upon his shelves that a slight
effort in the right direction would re
move The midwinter and the
months of eat spring are the beat
months for the live merchant to ar
range his campaign for the year It
is a time wihsn the residents of the
rural communities have not much else
to do but to tread A little stroke oof
enterprise on ipart of local merchants
at this period Us more likely to accom
pUsh good than at any other time
Well prepared circulars quoting
prices so that comparisons caa be
made with Uhe mail order house cata
logues will result In bringing consider
able trade that otherwise would fee di
verted by tthe large catalogues
It will paythe merchant in thermal
town carefully to study the methods of
the large department stores and to
beenflt by the work of the mall order
concerns The large houses If not lie
down during the dull period They
make an extra effort to gather in
trade and tthese efforts generally win
The present season is an exceptional
one Universal talk of panicky times
has madea great class of people more
economical in their every day affairs
They are looking for opportunities to
save money Low prices attract them
The merchant realizing this condition
can turn matters well to account by
making the right kind of effortt This
is the time when intelligent appeals
to common sense and the preaching of
evils of concentration of capital and
the necessity of protecting home In
dustries Will have the most beneficial
effects The home merchant has all
the advantage over the foreign insti
tution He has the goods to show
the people before they pay their I
as good values as the largest con
cern TTis expenses are not onehalf
according to the amount of business
he transacts as are the expenses of a
large city department store ontite mail
order houses
The trailing away from horns evil
is up to the local merchant He
must realize that these days the back
number the hazy man and the incom
petent ones cannot well succeefl in
mercantile Offe There is competition
that must Tae met and It must be met
eare t I
relever that the catalogue houses gas e
hk t
use of advertising space and < of Sri
vertising methods The prfaiciples
that apply to tike largest concern rateo
ofapply to the smallest one It fa irara
ly a matter of fiegree The merchant
who does not use printers ink these
days cannot expect to make a great
rsuccess in his chosen field
