TO THE COUNTRY MERCHANTS OF AMERICA
Sears, Roebuck, Montgomery Ward and the other mall order houses are
In the doldrums.
Their sales have been cut down enormously because the country folks
generally are not spending any more money than is necessary.
They are starting to buy again. Are you going to let them resume spend
ing their big money with the mall order houses, or are you going out for a
share of it yourself? You can give the people of your section Just as good
merchandise as Sears. Roebuck and Montgomery Ward have in stock. On
the whole, and In the long run, you give your people as good prices. Why
don't you get the business?
Simply because you don't compete with the mail order catalogue. Sim
ply because you don't approximate their catalogues with your advertise;
ments in the local newspapers.
As a matter of fact, the catalogues are real newspapers. When a man
has to buy clothes, canned beans, a fiddle, a kitchen Btove or a bunch of
dry goods, the pictures and prices of these articles of merchandise are at
tractive news to him, no matter whether they appear in a mall order cata
logue or In a newspaper. Sears, Roebuck and Montgomery Ward fill their
catalogues with pictures, descriptions and prices of merchandise that Amer
ican humanity needs, and wants to buy, and so American humanity sends
for their cataloglc newspapers and picks out his purchases, mostly after a
look at the pictures.
The mall order catalogues are newspapers that are printed twice a
year. In your bailiwick are one or more newspapers that are printed twice
a week, one hundred and four times a year, which gives you one hundred
and four chances a year to Interest and entertain your section of American
humanity with the news of your store, and with pictures of the news in
your store. Later news than any semi-annual catalogue newspaper carries
and more up-todate pictures of merchandise news than any old catalogue
can possibly contain when it is printed only once every six months.
Take advantage of the semi-weekly catalogue that you have at your own
door. Advertise big and Interestingly and appeallngly all the time.
Make your advertisement doubly gripping with smart pictures because
that Is nhat draws In the mall order catalogue. Just exactly as the pictures
of blooming plants draw the amateur gardener when he glues his eyes to
a seedhouse catalogue. Forget the utter foolishness that pictures take up
valuable paid space they pay you back with compound interest, every sin
gle one of them.
Put In brief descriptions and at the end of one hundred and four weeks
you will nave presented a catalogue to your neighboring folks that will
compete successfully with those compounded by foreign mall order houses.
The cost? Oh. that's nothing to what will flow back to you, good peo
ple. American Press, New York City.
REPUBLICANS TESTING FAIR ELECTION LAWS
We have heard the wail of the Q. O. P., "Let the ballots be counted as
cast," and now when an election law has been passed, strictly non-partisan,
for fear it will give fair elections In Kentucky, there comes another wall
from the same G. O. P., "The state registration law is not constitutional."
"Consistency,- thou are a Jewel."
GOVERNMENT HYPOCRISY
Hypocrisy in governemtn has done
more than anything else to create
disrespect for law. While It day be
true that national morals differ com
pletely from the code set up for In
dividuals, the fact remains that the
national hypocrite always must suf
fer when the mask is torn off. The
United States stands today as the
greatest bootlegger in the world and
the apotheosis of buncotne. On the
one hand appropriating money for
the punishment of individuals traf
ficking in liquors, o nthe other open
ly selling booze on American owned
ships, the government presents a
spectarle ot humbuggery more dan
gerous than astounding, for there is
nothing of news In tho dlsllosure
that Amerlsan ships have been sell
ing booze outside the three-mile lim
it. This Is and has baan always a
matter of common knowledve. Tho
startling development Is giving the
information officially to tho public,
which has known all about the con
dition and winked at the violation
without concern. Shipping men,
many of them supporters of prohibi
tions, always have contended that
American ships cannot hold passen
ger trade as against foreign ships it
the American ships aro dry, and as
the dollar has been the standard ot
morality, the result has been a wet
fleet, with America forced to depend
on mouth-to-mouth advertising of the
fact that prohibition really had no
meaning for the American govern
ment if the blinds could be drawn
down.
Dragging the issue Into tho sun
Hght at this time is likely to have
a far-reaching effect on the future of
the American merchant marine, per
haps the throwing of a bombshell
was forseeu and explains the urgent
cZort to obtain a ship subsidy. The
issue should be faced squarely. A
dry fleet Is a dead fleet, yet Amer
ican ships are necessary to American
progress. While prohibition Is the
law, the United States should run
dry ships or no ships. Government
violation of Its own laws is a dan
gerous precedent for any country to
set, and hypocritical evasion of the
spirit of the law Is no better.

GREEN MANURING ANCIENT
MEAN8 OF IMPROVING SOIL
Green manuring ' plowing under
green crops as a means of soil im
provement, although It has been em
phaslzed in recent years, can hardly
be called a new discovery, says the
United States Departmetn ot Agrlcul
tore. It is really one of the oldest
methods. Crops for this purpose
were used by tho ancients, tho Ro
mans using lupines, which were
sown in September and turned un
der In May for the benefit of the fol
lowing crop.
In Germany the use ot lupines be
gan In the middle of the nineteenth
century and has proved an important
factor In reclaiming the sandy land,s
of parts of Prussia. In England leg
umes and other plants are common
ly used; in Indiana and Japan the
farmers gather green plants of many
kinds, sometimes even cutting twigs
from the trees and carrying them to
the rice fields.
In the United States the use of
special green-manuro crops Is much
more general in tho south than In
the north. Under irrigation they
play an important part In orchard
culture In the west, but not under
dry-farming conditions.

MANUFACTURERS NOW USING
APPLES TO THE LAST SEED
The thoroughness with which the
apple Is now worked over and utiliz
ed by some manufacturers makes If
comparable with the packing-house
pig that leaves only a futile squeal.
The apple is not transformed Into
such a "variety of products as the
pig, but all are useful, and when the
last of the series has been made
hardly a smel Is left.
In many of the apple-using factor
lea the apples are first pressed to
produce cider, which may be sold as
such or may be manufactured into
vinegar. After thorough pressing
the pomace Is treated with hot water
to remove the pectin, which, after
purification, Is sold In either liquid
or solid form to manufacturers ot
Jellies and similar products and to
housewives. The much-wasted and
squeezed residue Is dried, ground
and sold as cattle feed.

GREAT SYSTEM OF HISHWAYS
PLANNED FOR UNITED STATES
A system of, highways that wHI
serve tjie whole conntry and will he
far superior to any other in the
world is being napped out by federal
and state engineers. It is estimated
that the system will comprise 18,
000 miles of road. The federal high
way act recently enacted specifically
requires that all federal aid be spent
on a connected system of hlghwalys
consisting of not more than 7 per
cent of the road mileage in each
state, and that this system shall con
sist ot interstate or primary roads
and Intercounty or secondary roads.
Proposed systems have been re
ceived by the Bureau of Publlo
Roads ot the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture irom all but
eight states. They are plotted on a
large map of the United States and
carefully examined as to co-ordination
with the roads of adjacent states
and service to all sections of the
country. Where co-ordination is not
satisfactory conferences are held
with all Interested state highway offi
cials sand routes adjusted.
Many states have already adjusted
difficult problems with their neigh
bors. As an example tho system
sent In by Nebraska showed a big
gap In an lmportnat road along the
northern boundary. It was learned,
however, that South Dakota would
follow with a system that would fit
like pictures on toy blocks. Since
the federal highway act oc last No
vember became a law, only roads cer
tain to be on the system have been
approved for consideration.

Some 40,000 school children in
Hawaii are enrolled In garden work
as one of the results of the efforts
of the local agricultural experiment
station of the United .States Depart
ment of Agriculture co-operating
with other territorial organisations
to encourage diversified production
and the local growing ot table pro
ducts. Compared with the beginning
of the garden work In .917, a much
larger amount of vegetables is now
grown in the home gardens of each
community and a wide variety of
fresh vegetables is found on the ta

There are many qualities of ice good, better and
best. Ice can be good even after its start in re
turning to water, but it is not the best, it is only
good. Ice can have the appearance of superiority
after it comes in contact with a summer climate.
At this stage it may be classed as good, it may be
better, but cannot be classed as the best.
The best is fresh from the plant casing, without
time for deterioration. Our ice is handled just
once, from the plant to the customer.
If you want the VERY BEST' ICE, ice that has
not reached the stage of deterioration, buy books
from us they save you money. '
Our ice reaches your refrigerator at a freezing
temperature. It is always money saved to buy
the very best. Our.ice is made by latest improv
