MEET PATRONSFACE TO FACE Mall Order Men Prefer to Sell at Long Distance Rather Than Deal With People In Their Own Cities. (Copyright.) i One of the stock excuses of the man who orders goods from a mail order house is that there are many things that he wants that the local mer chants do not carry in stock, and that It Is necessary for him to send away from town to get them. This explanation may be all right on the theory that a poor excuse is better than none, but it fails to pass muster when it Is subjected to a lit tle scrutiny. Ask the man who offers this as an excuse for his dealings with the mail order man why he does not go to the local merchant and ask him to order the articles desired if they are not to be found in the merchant's stock. The erchant will very gladly do this, and merchant and customer will both profit. The merchant can sell you whatever you desire at as low a price as the mail order house can make you on goods the same quality and he can make a small profit. The customer will profit from the transaction, because he will be deal ing with a merchant who stands back of the goods that he sells, and who is easily accessible in case the artl cles"purchased do not'prove" Vhe all that the customer had expected. ^ Give Home Merchant Preference. Why not try this plan the next time yon need something which you can not find in any of your home stores? The merchant In the average slxed town cannot carry In stock everything î^nt a a\°ilfttSe7 le it n wiVd°^aulre want at all times. It would require a capital many times larger than the average merchant can command to do, this, but he does the best he can. He ordinarily does carry in stock at all times many things for w uich there to the greatest possible degree, but • there Is a limit to his purchasing abll ***• He Is always ready and willing, is no general demand, in order that he may meet the needs _of his customers, however, to make every effort to meet, the demands of the community.

Upon the declaration of war the Bell system was placed unreservedly at the disposal of the government, whose already enormous demands for telephone service are continually increasing. Likewise, unprecedented are the service require ments of private business, which necessarily must be subordinated in times of emergency. So far as the local service is concerned we are not only unable to increase our revenue by ac cepting a volume of new business, but we are in the awkward position of seeing our service suffer and our present patrons inconvenienced. The delays and inconveniences due to the conges tion are more embarrassing to us than to the public. Any sacrifice we may make is accepted cheer fully and if our difficulties are reflected ini your telephone servioe, we ask that you bear this in mind. The patriotic American public can co-operate Host effectively with the government by <discour aging unnecessary use of the telephone. CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY Incorporated tne far-distant mail order man if yöu must have something which is not to be found in the local stores? lie will do the business in a satisfactory manner, give you ns quick if not quick er service and more satisfactory treat ment, and the chances are that he will give you better values for the money. Finally, whatever profit is to be made off the transaction will stay at home and do its bit toward making the merchant and his town and, inci dentally. yourself, irtore prosperous. No business can be transacted as satisfactorily at long range as it can when the two parties to the transac- j tion meet face to face. The only ex -1 ception to this rule is in the ease of the mail order man himself, who can j transact his business with greater sue-) cess to himself at long distance than he could if he had to meet his eus- j tomers face to face. That is the reason : that he does business by mall instead of selling to the people in his own city. If the goods which the mall or- j der man advertises In his alluring cat- i nlogues were the bargains that he rep- ! resents them to be, he would not haie ; to go outside of the confines of his I own city to sell all the goods he could j possibly obtain. But the average mail order house not only does not make any effort to sell goods in its own city, hut will not sell to anyone residing within the city limits. The mail order man does not want to meet his eus- ! tomers face to face. He can do busi- . ness better so far as he is concerned if j his customer is some hundreds of miles j away from his office. ; Does Business in Open. The man who sells goods over the j counter, on the other hand, does busi- j ness in the open. He cannot hide be- j hind a corporate name or talk to a dis- i pleased customer from behind the I locked doors of a private office. He , knows that he must face the music in i case he is a party to any transaction that won't stand the light of day. lie knows that he must satisfy every cus tomer with whom he may be dealing or he will ose not only that customer but probably others who will soon know a11 fac * s lf he does n0 f ° ® square thing by any one of his p atrons <xii ere Is no reason In the world for _ _________ mnnpv to n * * house because be Cannot the art i c j e be wan ts In his local gtore The local merchant i s m busi- , ness for the very purpose of gettlng : what you want .

Morgan City people tell how Doan's Kidney Fills have stood the test. Mrs J. Riesbol of Federal St., Morgan City, endorsed Doan's three years ago and again confirms the story. Could you ask for more convincing tes timony? Mrs. Riesbol gave the following ne eount of her experience with Doan 's Kidney Fills May 13, 1914: "I cheer fully recommend Doan 's Kidney Pills for they are a wonderful kidney rem edy. Members of my family have used Doan's for a disordered condition of their kidneys and they are all they are claimed to he. Whenever I have anv (trouble in this way, Doan's Kidney Pills 1 quiekly relieve me. I have great faith i in this medicine.' On February IS. 191H, Mrs. Riesbol *-ai• i : " lam glad to confirm the state ment T made for Doan's Kidney Fills in 1914 and T still have the same faith in this remedy.' dOe at all dealers. Foster-Milburn Co., M/grs. Buffalo, X. Y. FOLLOWING ; FALSE GODS | By S. STANWOOD MENKEN, President of the National Security League. Just as the test of the individual is best found under the stress of great trial or play of passion, so nations prove themselves in time of war and . 2 are aide to Judge, not alone of the qualities of which their peoples are composed, but al so the measure of confidence which should lie placed in their loaders. It lias been said t it a t Amerii ans don't ha'-.'e to prove that they are the "greatest people on earth" for they admit it; and yet, when we look back over our history and consider how we : have met great problems—such as ' slavery, hy a great war; tariff, hy : fourteen hills and a like number of panics; conservation, currency, 'atik , ing. anti-trust and railroad ques- ims, i by making the same matters of poii S. Stanwood Menken ties—it may be doubted wlioth. r we | are quite as great as we think we are. In rons: ideritig how we exercise our : judgment, we should remember the i extent to which we have devoted onr selves to the education of the y. »UI : cr and the 1 arge sums we have spun r n t all times for public schools and lor : colleges. When we look hack and see ! the mistakes we have made, it w< ould ! almost appear as if we had failed to apply much that had been taught us in 1 school and college, or that perhaps the j school and college had not taught us ! how to solve great political me i-" n-s. i Then, ngein, the thought comes to us 1 } of whether or not we have nor had false leaders, and have rot clung to false gods. Corporation Wrongs. We all remember the outcry against vested interests of the capitalists. There have been great wrongs done by many corporations—some of their ! franchises have been obtained by eor ruption and theft and great Injuries i have often been done to the rights of the people ; and so, when we found times hard and things going wrong, we have vented our anger upon cor porations and upon the capitalists wlio controlled them. In many cases we allowed ourselves to become angry with a class or with certain individ uals and expended our strength on our temper, rather than upon a study of the cure of the conditions about which we complained; and In many instances we punished corporations for the wrongs of their predecessor» in ownership, much as sins of parents are visited upon their children. Demagogues, knowing the public mood, appealed to prejudice and ig norance in discussing public matters and made issues like currency, nnti I trust laws and the railroads political ; footballs. Just as if the question of whether money could bo saved hy ; joining together companies and pro i viding for economy in purchases and I gales was political. Of course it was I a matter of economics (which is the i gc i Pnce 0 f commerce). Such matters f or a conference between repre sentatlves of farmers, laborers, scl ! entific students of world conditions, ; an<1 manufacturers n " d '* I goods, to consider and determine how ; goodg can be pro duced with a fair as j wage t0 t he employee, a fair profit to j the employer and the maximum bene : fit to the public. Future Problem». is It and a In Europe they have taken these questions up in this careful way and the result has been of great benefit. Now, and In the future, America will have to deal with countries that are short of resources through the exhaus tion of war and have, of necessity, to get down to rock-bottom. The thrifty, Intelligent, Industrious European is of , ^ ^ # good n)ercbant> and we are ^ g 0 j ng to bave a hard time competing No , h , m for com merce and for world 1 position, so we must consider all of j our problems more carefully than ever j before and cast aside those men who attempt to lead us away from a j thoughtful, dispassionate view of great ; Q ucstions - ■ Graft and neglect in local communl- ties of political duties by the average citizen are responsible for the tnisgov ernment that breeds disrespect, where I we should have pride because of the j efficiency of our people. The first con cern of the citizen in every community must he to see that It Is governed in a way that will assure the approval of clean thinking men and women. 1 The mechanics governing a city r<? j quire the same kind of clear thought 1 and careful work as that given to ! shop work or farm planning, and every good American must feel that at this time there Is nothing more worth j while. j If we do these things well, we will not have to worry about the foreign born loving America, because living in how the St., tes ne 's Pills rem used of are conditions here will be so excellent Pills 1 that they simply cannot help lt. espe i clally when they are given not aloii i good government and healthy condi tions surrounding home and wo 1 in in shop, hut also education, opportune and a charter of liberties whicli wi tnean happiness to them.
