How A "Sucker" Was Saved, A city man got a very glowing cir cular from a Chlcuge "development company" offering him 10 acres of land in Florida for the surprisingly small sum of $2,500 a "peanut unit" the circular called it. He could grow, the circular said, a thousand bushels of peanuts on his 10 acres and could sell the peanuts allowing for low prices at $2 a bushel. The city man was Impressed: but he sent the circular to the United States De- i partment of Agriculture with a query as to whether or not the investment was a good one. Following are some sentences from the letter he got inof the county. reply: "The literature Is of the kind, Mr. Bradshnw is the son of Mr. designed to deceive city people in the North and West who do not know anything about farming." "The aver age return from 10 acres of peanuts would not exceed $300 to $500." "You could buy a 100 acre farm, In al most any of the counties of western Florida, including the one mentioned in the circular, for the price these people ask for 10 acres." "The whole 'unit' system, whether it Is pecans, peaches, figs, cane, pea nuts, hogs or what not, Is simply a means of selling land at three to five time what. t, Is worth to Ignorant or unwary,,' small Investors." "To pfy $2,500 for thla 10 acres of Und would tamp you as a 'sucker of the rank' est class." "All this is without re flecting in any way on Florida, for it is a good State and lands are cor.ipatt aticly cheap ll: ;r . NUMBER IB. SALESMEN ELIMINATE Long Wait for Trains. Light Business Car Now Enables Thsm to Make Quick Trips from City to City at Reduced Cost. To eliminate expensive tolling methods, many wholesale houses have equipped their sales forces with light delivery cars, with the result that their representatives have been able to triple the number of towns visited, carrying their samples with thvm. This growing practice bid fair o alleviate to a great extent die trou bles of the traveling salesman. Ito latsd towns and once-a-day railway trains have made many a salesiran throw up his hands in disgust a l l desert his profession for fields lcs wearisome and nerve wrecking. Not ouly did such railway facilities tend to reduce the ranks of the traveling salesmen, but they were responsible for an increased selling cost of dry goods, shoes, groceries, hardware, hats and similar staples. Using the railroads , the salesman was able to make but one town a day, where sev eral hours were sufficient to call on the trade. The remaining hours were spent in enforced idleness, with the result that weekly hotel bills and ex pense accounts soared. But the development of the motor car, and particularly the litfht com mercial car, is rapidly doing away with these old-fashioned methods of wholesale selling. An interesting sample of the successful use of sucu a car Is that of B. A. Rives, a shoe salesman in southern Alabama. In August, 1918, Mr. Rives bought a Dodge Brothers business car and abandoned the southern railroads as a means of covering his territory. Since that day the car has been in continual use, carrying the salesman, driver and a bulky 700 lbs of sam ples. To thc Dodge Brothers dealer from whom the car was purchased, Mr. Rives wrote: "I find that I can make nearly three times as many towns in a week as I formerly could by railroad and the weekly expense is no greater. The pulling qualities of your business car cannot be excelled, and the upkeep for the time that I have had it has been too little to count. The pleasure of not having to wait for trains would overbalance the en'ire expense of tho car. Refer any of the boys on the road to me if they have a heavy load and want to go along without any trouble." Dunn-Bradshaw.
