IN THREE PARTS—PART 2
UNWISE OPPOSITION OF THE SMALL
Reference, of course, is had to
the (ears which the merchants of
the country towns entertain as
to the effect of the parcels post
upon their business. The coun
try merchant has come to accept
oil this point the sophistical,dis
ingenuous and dishonest argue
ments of the express lobby, skill
fully put out through agencies
whose deal purpose is concealed.
The arguement that cheap
transportation of parcels will
injure the country towns is ex
actly as reasonable as the con
tention that London and New
York, Hamberg and Liverpool,
Seattle and Sidney, must be in
jured by the railways and steam
ships which, bringing all parts
of the world into close and easy
communication, would make it
impossible for great and denomi
nating centers of population,
commerce, and industry to exist.
Everybody can see how absurd
such an argument would be.
I The best possible transporta
s turn facilities constitute the first
requisite to making a great city.
Commercial centers are prosper
ous ana important in propor
tion as they have adequate, effi
cient and cheap transportation.
This is as true of the country
town with a single railroad line
as it is of a continent's metropo
j lis with half a hundred great
railroad systems pouring their
tonnage into its terminals and
with the ships of all the seven
seas unloadinh their cargoes at
It is an axiom that good,amp
le, and cheap transportation
actually makes commerce. The
'country town which has no rail
road always wants one. The
hamlet which has no post office
is forever riding the neck of its
congressman until it gets one.
Great cities vote millions to
build artificial harbors, to pro
vide free wharfage, and to in
crease every possible facility for
cheap and rapid transportation.
There are no communities that
need improvement of transpor
tation so much as the country
towns which have been misled
into opposing the parcels post.
The country merchant has been
made to belisve that the parcels
past would take his business
away from him and give it to
the mail-order house in the great
city. It would do nothing of the
kind. On the contrary, it would
give the country merchant the
one facility which he does not
have now; it would piace him
on a parity with the merchant
in the great city.
yuick, cheap transportation
would enable him to buy better
and cheaper. He could sell many
articles from catalogue instead
I of having to carry them in stock
I He could create a mail-order bus
iness of his own in his surround
ing territory. The local mer
chant who condncts his business
well has nothing to fear from
the mail-order house, Farmers
and citizens preler dealing with
the home man, and the parcels
post will give him many advan
tages that will enable him to in
crease his trade to proportions
which are now impossible.
Of course, this does not apply
to the country merchant who
buys his goods badly or at high
prices, and who gives long credits
and sells at long prices,
post or not, his day is doomed.
J More alert men, with better bus
iness ideas, will soon occupy his
place. The alert, hustling mer
chant will use the parcels post
so effectively that the old sleepy
head's day will end just that

Experience of the Ages !
The experience of the ages has I
proven that a man who spends
his money freely never gets
ahead. The best way to get
ahead is to deposit a part of
your earnings each week. With
our burglar-proof vault and effi
cient board of director* we offer
you staunch protection. A small
amount deposited each week
soon enables you to have work
ing capital which will bring you
in interest while you eat and
sleep. The small deposits soon
become the large deposits and a
great many ol our solid business
men started in this way. Come
in and try this system and we
assure you the same courteous
anil careful attention that we
give every customer. Keep a
