FBOWN DOWN THE DISTURBER
Ridicule, Paralyzing as Well aa Amus
ing, Often Gratifies a Little Mind or
an Ungenerous Temper?'Tho Safe
Plan Is Always to Do the Task That
Liea Nearest Us.
[Copyrighted. 1SH4, by Thomne J. Sullivan.]
Ridicule may be an evidence of wit
or bitterness and may gratify a little
mind or an ungenerous temper, but Is
no test of reason, truth or manhood.
Kldicule, besides being conscious and
unconscious, may also be iudirect as
well as direct, negative as well as
positive, paralyzing us well as amus
ing. And myriad in number nnd kind
are tbe ridiculous suggestions made
and being made by tbe enemies and
victims of the mnil order concerns in
the hope of stopping their onwnrrf
march of pmvrpss
Do merchants always appreciate
their advuntage? Would a friend of
the merchant or dealer have scut bis
first order to a stranger who showed
pictures instead of goods, who talked
on paper instead of face to face, who
demanded pay in advance Instead of
allowing a more unlimited credit bad
the merchant Improved his advan
tages?
Ought to Emulate Rivals.
It would seem that after one expe
rience of long delays, quite common
and to a great extent unavoidable in
trading with mail order bouses, after
one experience of putting things to
gether for himself, after one expe
rience of waiting for a missing part,
the friend would not have taken the
trouble to order by mall from a stran
ger bad the locnl merchant or dealer
always improved ills opportunities.
Everything that happens to us leaves
some trace behind it; everything con
tributes imperceptibly to form tin. Yet
often It is dangerous to take a strict
account of that." for either we grow
proud and negligent or downcast and
dispirited, and both are equally in
jurious In their consequences. Always
tho safe plan Is to do the tusk which
lies nearest 11s nnd which will augur
for our best Interests anil those of
others.
If success can be attained by tbe re
tall mall order houses, working under
disadvantages, why cannot the local
merchant who has none of these dis
advantages, succeed? Qe can by imi
tating their methods and practices, by j
allowing undisturbed Inspection of
goods nnd by polite and courteous
treatment of all. visitors to his store.
thus creating new customers and con
tinuing to supply old ones.
In n certain Indiana town a young
man ordered a beating stove, price
SS.D5. When the stove came lie was
very much disappointed. The stove
was small, while the picture In the
catalogue made it appear large and or
aamental. Had tills young man visit
ed his local dealer and inspected tbe
?S.95 stove bo would not have bought
It. but would have selected one for
$12 or $14 and would have got the
right kind and one that would bare
satisfied his needs.
A Minnesota farmer ordered five
rolls of barbed wire. After It came
and be bad paid the freight he discov
ered that be could have bought the
same identical wire from Ills local
dealer and could have saved $1. also
much time and trouble.
Mail Order Fonco In Woodshed.
Another man living in a village or
dered some wire fencing from a pic
ture in a cutalogue, and when it enme
it was so cheap looking that his pride
would not allow him to disfigure his
grounds with such a fence, so lie stor
ed it 111 his woodshed and bought what
be wanted from his local dealer.
A lady in a little town In Missouri
sent to one of tho large mail order
bouses for a pair of shoes, Inclosing
SI.07 with lier order. After two weeks
the shoes came by freight: charges
wore 2ii cents, which she paid. After
taking the shoes home slie found they
did not fit, so she repacked tbem and
sent them back by express, and after
another two weeks' wait another pair
of shoes came' by freight with more
chargos nttafhed. To tho lady's dis
may, these shoes were no nearer a lit
than tbe first pair. She then gave up
In despair and visited her local denier,
crediting her Investment of $2.00 to
experience.
We should like to suggest to the con
sumer that lie he honest with himself:
buy nt home: help support his own
town: make Ills owp. home more val
uable. Let Mr. Mail Order Man sell
Ills good things in his own town. In
stead of his fooling you. you fool him
by trading at home.
Let each community become a co
operative commonwealth to the extent
that its citizens shall work together to
build up and sustain that community,
working with neighbors?competitors
Included?for the home. town, city
county and state: let civic pride and
ambition be fostered: let the profes
sional "grouch" and disturber of the 1
public pence he frowned down: let the
Incorrigible offender ngalnst tho prin
ciples of square dealing be thrown to
the lions of public condemnation.
And to the merchant wo say-work:
don't ridicule.

Employes Are
Disappointed
DELAYED PAY BY B. & N. CON
TRACTORS GIVES THEM NO
CHANCE TO ENJOY XMAS.
Jinny of the employes of the con
tractors on the B. & N. arc sadly dis
appointed because their pay will be
held back until the day before Christ
mas. They only got their pay every
thirty days, but were promised an
earlier pay day on account of the holi
days, but the plans have been changes
and the men are disappointed. This
virtually gives the men no Christmas
and it gives their families no chance
to do any Christmas shopping. Thfc
merchants', too, ore the losers.
These contractors will certainly
reconsider their action and give these
men the money due them before the
holiday season is at an end.
