Be Faithful and Hones! With
Before Sending His Mcnoy'to Distant j
Concerns Every Citizen Should Con

Town?Local Merchants Ready and
Willing to Compete.
[Copyrighted, 1914. by Thomas J. Sullivan.] i
Duty is a power that rises with us
in the morning and rocs to rest with
us at night. It Is coextensive with the
action of our intelligence. It Is the
shudow which cleaves to us, go where
?we will.
I.et us do our duty in our shop or
kitchen. In the market, the street, the
otllce, the farm, the school, the home.
Just as faithfully as if we stood In the
front ranks of some great battle and
knew that victory for mankind, de
pended upon our bravery, strength and
When we do that the very humblest J
of us will be serving In that great
army which achieves the welfare of j
the world.
A Dollar Lost.
It should be the slogan of every
rural consumer'never- to send away
for goods that lie can just as well buy .
at home, tvery time you send a dol- j
lar to a mall order house that dollar, j
as far as you and your community are I
concerned, is practically out of clrou- j
Your own home merchant is the one
?who helps to keep up your schools, '
your churches and your town. He is
the one. who deserves your trade and j
not some catalogue house in Chicago
or elsewhere.
Goods on Unsecu-ed Promises.
When you have nothing to give in
exchange, to whom do you go for ac
commodations until some uncertain
time when you can pay?
Do you not always find your home !
merchant ready and willing to let. his '
goods go on promises, not guaranteed ;
notes, but verbal promises, trusting to j
your honesty and Rood luck in meeting !
the obligation later?
How many farms have been paid for :
by your merchants advancing both the
goods necessary to keep life in the !
body and cash to meet that dreaded
Interest on the mortgage?
Under the same conditions would j
the farmer trust the merchant for
months and months with tlie produce
of his farm, or would lie ask for cash
or Its equivalent upon delivery of the
Not a Robber or Cheat.
We know that the average consumer
does not feel that his local merchant is
n robber or a cheat; but. like all hu
mankind. the catalogues and prices of !
mail order houses appeal to him, and 1
he forwards his order and cash with- |
out considering the injustice he is do- j
in}? himself, his merchant and his J
home town.
The catalogues of the mall order |
house are illumined with pictures to
catch the eye of the unwary. They j
range iu complexion from a brunette j
banana to a blond canarj* bird. They*

losopher's stone to a cypress shingle
sawed out of a sunbeam.
Cash Versus Credit.
It seems unbelievable, but it is nev
ertheless a fact, showing the entire
lack of any sense of justice, that luanj*
people regard their local stores as
merely institutions of accommodation.
When these people have cash to spend
it goes to the faraway mail order
liouses, but when times are dull, when
they are sick or out of work or during
the season when farmers are not turn
ing their produce luto cash, what do
they do? Do they write to the cata
logue house and ask for credit?
If they did do you think they would
get it? Not 011 your life! Those con
cerns must have cash, must have It in
advance, must have it before you can I
even see the goods you buy. The con
sumer sends his. money and then sits
down and waits until the mail order
house gets good and ready to till his
Hut when homo people want credit
or favors of any kind they hustle off
to their-liome merchant, very obliging
ly order what they want and tell him
to charge it. expecting him to wait at
least from one to six months for his
Dealing With Neighbors.
In buying from your home merchants
you deal with neighbors. Buy with
goods before you. Pay when you get
the goods if you so elect Have goods
delivered free. Ileturn goods if not
satisfactory. Build up your home
Help build up your own home town
and make of yourself a man worthy of
your day and time. Every man should
take pride In being a good Amorlcan
citizen, and we believe most men do
and that isost men are, or at least de
sire to be, !but what kind of citizen is
the man who supports an octopus?
Should he not be placed In a class
with the man that knocks his own
business? That sort of man is invari
ibly neither a good neighbor nor a
;ood citizen.

Wesleyan Basketball
Schedule Announced
nUCKHANNON, Dec. 14.?Captain
SINGLETON and the candidates for
the 1915 Wesleyan basketball team re
ported to Coach Mi. Pleasant this aft
ernoon in the large college gymna
sium. There were twenty men out. (
for a place on the varsity, several men
making their first appearance in a
Wesleyan suit. The raon from lust
year's squad who reported were: Cup
tain Singlwoton, Jacobs, Merrells, W.
SliuniaUer, Morrison, ileavener, Roa
Begar, Daniels, Loonoy, Teetrlck and
among the new men were O. Shu
maker. Inst year forward on the Buck
Uannon High school team: Lennard
and Ross, both of the Salem High
school team of last year; Curtis, of
Moundsville High, and Dawson and
Aken, of the class league of last year.
There were many others, but those
perhaps are the moBt promising at the
first practice. It can easily be scon
that Wesleyan will again be in the
running when the state championship
is dcchled this year, as a team can
be selected from the old men out that
would he more sxperlenced than tho
one with which she entered the del l
last season, and the new material is
the most abundant and the most prom
ising Wesleyan has ever had in this
sport. The coach lined up the men
in two teams and they played for
almost an hour bo that ho could get a
line on each raan'B ability, and tho
plans are to cut the squart to a more
workable size at an early time, as
the season starts very soon after the
beginning of the winter term. Capt.
Singleton was not In the lineup and
with Morrison at center, Ileavner and
Rossegar at guards, and Jacobs ami
W. Shumaker at the forwards there
was some mighty fast basketball ex
hibited by the varsity, and the scrubs
were never dangerous. These men
have all played together practically
two years, and they ran away with
the game. The schedule follows:
