I I i j It 1 I : Being a Few Rules the Mail Order ! Houses Wish Understood, The following interesting set of mail order house business laws 1 was taken from a magazine de voted entirely to the interest of merchants throughout the coun try and it is worth any one's! spare time to glance down the column and see just what state of affairs exists in the mercantile world today: 1. You shall sell your farm pro ducts for cash wherever you can, but not to us, we do not buy from you. 2. You shall believe our state-! ments and buy all you need from us, because we want to be good to you although we are not per sonally acquainted with you. 3. You shall send the money in advance to give us a chance to get the goods from the factory with your money, mean while you will have to wait patiently a few weeks because that is our busi ness method. 4. You shall apply to your nearest city to aid you in build ing good roads so you may con veniently get the goods from the depot that you buy from us, for we do not build country roads. 5. You shall buy church bells and interior fixtures from us and forward the money in advance, for that is our busines method. 6. You shall collect from the business men in your vicinity as much money as you can for the | . benefit of your churches,although we earn more money from you than they do, still it is against our rules to donate money for building country churches. 7. You shall buy your tools from us and be your own mechan ic, in order to drive the mechanics from your vicinity, for we wish it I j I 80. 8. You shall induce you r neigh bor to buy everything from us, as we have room for more money. 9. You shall look often at the i beautiful pictures in our cata- j t logues so your wishes will in- j crease and you will send in a big order, although you are not in immediate need of the goods, otherwise you might have some money left to buy necessary goods of your local merchants. 10. You shall have the mechanics that repair the goods you buy from us book the bill, so you can send the money for his labor to us for i new goods, otherwise we will not notice our influence. 11. You shall believe us in prefer ence to your local merchants as we want your best and we only become millionaires by chance. 12. You shall in case of accident, | sickness or need, apply to your local bankers for aid and credit, as we do not know you. Since you freely criticise other people, you should remember that in all reasonable probability other people criticise you. Very few of us give this proposition as much attention as it deserves. If you ob serve that people are quick to note faults of their neighbors, they are quick to note your faults, although they may be very polite when you The people are very J gentle with natural infirmities, but 'they are merciless with bad habits for which there is no good excuse, It may help you to overcome your Dad habits to always remember that they are criticised. Because you do not hear the "talk" about you, do not imagine that you escape.—Atchinson Globe. are around. . S. D. McLain eU Head of a New, Nampa Enterprise. (Nampa Leader Herald.) Arrangements for the establish ment of a big saw mill in Nampa were completed today. S. I). Me Lain of Silver City, who is one of the prime movers in 'the enter prise, secured an option from Kobert Noble this afternoon on two sites situated on the B. N. & 0. railroad about one mile from the depot. The sites are in the same locality, one being situated on the east side of the track and one on the west. There are 25 acres in each track. On one of these sites a thoroughly modern saw and planing mill embracing dry kiln, steam treating plant, lathe mill, box factory, etc., will be erected. The most modern machinery will be installed to treat the logs from their rough state to the finished product. Work on the plant will begin within the next 60 days and the company will go into the timber about September 1st and will handle next year's cut commenc ing about May 15th. The annual capacity of the plant will be 12,000,000 feet, or 40,000 feet a day. The plant alone will cost over $30,000 and the handling of the logs will in volve the expenditure of enorm ous sums annually. The company has already made application to the government for the purchase of 60,000,000 feet of logs which is the estimat ed cut for five years. The logs will be floated from the South Fork of the Fayette, loaded on t j le car8 Emmett and brought to Nampa. Every particle of the logs will be utilized even to the saw dust. Associated with Mr. McLain is W. O. Kuhn, an experienced saw mill man of Portland Oregon, Fred Barnes of Nampa, and other parties. The establishment of this saw mill, planing mill and box factory i u Nampa is almost, if not quite, equal in importance to the sugar factory. It means a steady pay roll, the year round for from 20 to 40 men and will be extremely beneficial in many other ways. Mr. McLain, who is perhaps chiefly interested in the enter prise, is a prominent banker and merchant of Silver City and is re garded as one of the very sub stantial business men of that section. He will divide his time between Nampa, where he will keep oversight of the mill work, and his Owyhee business interests this year, and next year when the mill is running will move to Nampa to make his permanent home.
