Aijf J 1 I I DEAD MERCHANT HE SOMETIMES DRIVES TRADE AWAY FROM THE TOWN. HINDRANCE TO LIVE MERCHANT Are as Much to Be Feared as the Competition of the Catalogue Houses Should Be Awak ened or Buried. TVfiy Hhould the home merchant hn patronized Instead of the mall order house? The subject has been ex hausted almost and from all polnta of view and all sides there is no valid reason why the merchant at home ihould not excepting two, price and articles wanted. It Is not the Intention of the writer to Jot down a pleasant 'How of lan iruaito or to produce an Interesting bit of read I us; niattor, but merely to state In a few almple aenti-nces what I have Hecn and learned of the competlton be tween tho rtitaloBue houses and the home merchants. In the llrat place no one community suffers greatly In this competition. That makes tho problem nil the more difficult In solution. I mean by this that the majority of buy eiB in no one cummmilty purchase by mall. The business of the "nail order house Is scattered over a largo terrl lory, the number of orders eoml n: from any one community compare I with the whole Is comparatively small to the number of orders In the town There Is an exception to this In a com munliy w here the home merchants ure dead one and ask cxhoi hltanl prlceii. ;y " ill""-:,,ili.i! ,i , . ,-i " !!' J.s HI -IM- ;-w-i When the local editor and the local merchant put their shoulders to the whoel of local progress the town will move, its Industries will thrive, it will prosper. But remember the editor cannot do it all; he asks and must have the merchant's assistance. To Illustrate. There Is a little city In the central part uf Wisconsin, a beau tiful little place, with Its shady streets and pleasant honiea. It hue several general storcB owned by live, wide awake merchants, who are hustling for business, yet are always pleasant and ready to visit with a customer. They lire not put out at any time to show goods, taking down bolt afier bolt of cloth and maybe then not making even a five-cent sale. They take that as part of their business; they are always willing to send pos haute to the city for uny article they may nol have In stock that is wanted by n customer; their stocks are up-to-date and free from sh( If worn goods. These men nir.ke the humblest customers feel wel come In their stores, and particular at tention Is paid to waiting on children, giving them even better measure and 'luulity than their elders would re ceive. And these men are advertisers. Their nils in the local papers are i l.anged regularly and show time und study. They meet the ninll order man more than half way In special sales und clearing of odds and ends. Here Ik an Instance where there is no eg. tlmat,' i rtise for a person sending away after goods. And the people do not. Very few articles of gen-r.il nwr ehnnc'lse are shipped Into thut city. The buyer mid seller are working In harmony lo their own betterment and advantage. llul Iik.I; at the other side. The rlty which we have In mind has onn hard ware and o:ie furniture store. Iloth have fairly gocd stocks for the size of their circle of trade, but Just step Into either one of theso stores. The pro prietor m:iy ho in the burk room or the back yard for all yr.u know, but by and by some stir li heard und leisurely he I makes his appearance neither Btore has need of a clerk und probably with some grumbles about being disturbed, asks what Is wanted. There might as well be placards In tho store announc ing "liny want I've got tB'J keep still" tnil "We are busy, don't disturb us." No effort Is made to show you an arti cle; nothing is ever taker down from the shelves unless directly sked for. Neither hardware nor furniture, man acts willing to get wha: you want if bo does not have It In stock. And again neither one of theso storej believe In ulvertlslng. They use no space In ihclr home papers; a newcomer would uovor know the city possessed such places of business enterprise. Who over heard of a country hardware or Xwnlturu store having a special sale, ! or harvest sale or the like? Hut why rot? These two storekeepers are bit ter against tho mail order houses. I wonder why? I talked with the rail road agents in that little city and ha said lots of hardware and furniture was Bhipped in. He said, "One day made out an express order for $34 to pay for a bill of hardware. I told the man to go up and seat If the merchant couldn't fill the order. He went but soon came back, saying that 'he didn't have half of the stuff on hand and that lie wouldn't cut a bit on what ho did have: " Column after column has been writ ten deploring the fact that tho buyer ipenits her or his money away from home, that she or he is helping to build up tho mall order houso to tho detrl ment of the home merchant. Tho gen i intent Is good and the rouse Is worthy of h efforts being made to atop thla undertow; but no amount, of writing, and no amount of homo patriotism will ever overcome the bad effects of tho dead merchant In the little town. The truth can be plainly seen. Let us turn back to the general stores and look up the proprietor of any one. Hn probably will be found biicy waiting on a customer, but If not lie will tell you that It Is not the cata louues alone that lie fenrs, but also thut It Is the lethargy of these two dealers. They are helping to drive away trade from home. I have wandered from the subject and gotten over on the buyers side of the fence; but Isn't It well at times to look nt the other side of thin pitiable story? I slnrted to write a few lines on Why People Should Trade at Home. and have gotten Into the field of "Why the Home Merchant Should Induce People to Trade at Home."

KIJWARD T. HAltK. 80ME REMARKABLE HORSES. Wonderful Stories About the 8teeds of Famous Men. In his letters to Lord (iranvllle. pub lished by the lloynl Philosophical so ciety, who wa.s also greatly interest. -d in iintural history. Smllhson, the founder of the Smithsonian Institution in America, relates how the horse i f Alexander the Croat, Iliicephnlus, would at night, on hearing a blast of the trumpet from the soldiers on guard showing the approach of the enemy, run ut great speed to his master's tent nnd with his teeth grub the sleeping monarch nnd shuke I. iut until he sprung Into the saddle and galioped tow".!rd tho enemy. Also that the ?r.-cat C'sllph Haroun-rl Itaschid In the eight century In march ing toward the forces of Queen Irene of Constantinople constantly had a number of trained Arabian horse3 (di rect descendants of the f nous hnr.se owned by Whmc.el 4.0110 years nyol thrown forward as scouts, who fro:n time to time returned to camp and by n peculiar whinny and neigh reoorted the proximity of the em my.

It Is lelnled by a retired New Kneland clergyman, whoso sands of life hnd marly run out, that ono day on lending his horse down through a lano to a brook for a drink the animal suddenly halted and. turning Its hend round, grabbed up with Its teeth ono of lis hind shoes which had Just dropped off, and, holding It In Its mouth with the nails dangling.

If the present administration has any high claim on the support of the Independent vote, it has been on tho ground of reforming political abuses. Dut we now nee tho means adopted by practical is'llticlans to hold power and place are being openly and brazenly put In pructlre by President Ilooso velt and his rahlnet officers to gain control of the next Republican con vention. Civil service rules and regit latlnns have been thrown to the winds and efficient ofllclula ore being nHked to resign because tboy belong to the opposing faction and. If their resigna tion la not Immediately forthcoming they are removed "for the good of the service" nnd their places filled with uilmlnlstrntlnn men. Hut this obnoxious form of political activity Is now outdone by another and worse political evil. It Is conceded that First Assistant Postmaster Gen eral Hitchcock has been touring the southern states for the purpose of Hn Ing up the federal ofllee holders for the administration program nnd prob flhly, If there Is any doubt of their fidelity mid activity for that purpose, they will be dismissed and others found who ore more capable or trual worthy in corralling the darky voters thai will elect the delegates to the Republican nntlonul convention. In the southern status those Republican voters who nre not feeding at the fed eral trnti;h nre notoriously "agin" the administration, nnd us only a small minority ran be supplied with govern ment pap. there Is a continual aciuenl ing by the "outs" to get their noses In the trough In place of their more for tunate fellows. There Is always fierce competition to be elected delegates to the Republi can nntlonul convention, for experi ence has Hhovvn the negro polltlclanF that when there In a factional fight for control of the party, both factions are willing to contribute for expenses nnd votes. (If course, the ndmiulstrntion expects the ofllee holders white or colored to see that the delegate to the national convention nre branded and delivered without nny extra cost This Is no easy Job. when plenty of 'ash Is In night from the opposing faction, anil darky delegates un known to have sold out tobnth aides In the Shoinian-Alger efforts for tho nomination n few years ago. Those who think the Roosevelt ad ministration Is opposed to such prac tical efforts lo perpetuate Its power will arrive at n different conclusion If they watch the course of events for the selection of delegates to the com ing Republican national convention. That a big scandal la Impending as tho result of this strife for control of the Republican party is plainly appar ent to all dose observers of the means being employed for success. MONEY IN ELECTIONS. Plans Proposed by Democrats to Pre vent Political Corruption. All good citizens are anxious to abolish political corruption, but there Is a difference of opinion about Just how It can best, bo accomplished. Gov. Hughes, of New York, recommends a corrupt practices act, which would prevent nny candidate from contribut ing but a limited amount. Mr. Hearst, who waB the Democratic candidate for governor at the last election and paid nearly all the campaign expenses, In n olgned statement successfully shows how ineffectual the Hughes plnn will be, as It would throw the financial sup port of the cnmpnlgn Into the hands of tho financiers or corporation mag nates and make the candidates their debtors. "I would call Mr. Hughes' sugges tion," says Mr. Hours!, "n measure to prevent any financial Independence on the part of the candidates, and to compel candidates to he under obliga tions to large financial Interests for their campaign funds. "The public knows sufficiently well what kind of services those large financial Interests require from elect ed offlclals In t el urn for the campaign contributions that have helped to elect them. Therefore, 1 maintain that the proper method is to limit strictly the amount of money which may be soent on nn eiccllon, and not to limit merely the amount which a candidate may himself contribute in an effort to be Tree nnd Independent of corpora lion control." That argument Is certainly a squelcher for Gov. Hughes, for what honest vol era nre striving for, Is not so much that there shall be no money for legitimate campaign expenses, but that the cundidutos elected shall not bo tinder obligations to certain Inter ests that will demand a return of fa vors for tho money they have sub scribed. Mr. Hearst also calls atten tion to his till to prevent and punish bribery ns a much moro effective measure against political corruption. which If energetically enforced, It cer tainly would be. It Is almost Impossible to prevent tho use of money In elections, but It can be made possible to unseat suc cessfully candidates who have been proved guilty of corruption, or whe are elected by the corrupt methods of their party associates or friends. Such law has virtually abolished bribery nnd coriuptlon In Great Ilrltniu and should be effectual here. All plans that do not Include the punishment ot the candidate, who himself or through others benefits by corrupt methods, will only be partially effective. No man can be "compelled" to ran r office. If Tldv takes t tnr it for third term 1". will bo because he wantt It. . " BOY HAD NOT UNDERSTOOD.
