Rural Rest Room.
Mr. Merchant, Why Not Co
Operate With Other Mer
chants to Provide A
"Rest Room”?
Mr Village Merchant, 1 real
ize that you can't provide these
poveniences in your own store,
like the inerchantile establish
ments of the great cities.
Hut listen, You and all the
.ither merchants in the town do
i volume of business as great as
some of the institutions mention
ed. Then why not unite and
jointly provide these conveni
ences for the woman of the farms
■the very best customers you
have?
You are not obliged to deliver
foods to your country customers,
If your delivery cost is 1 per
’ent of your gross expense, then
credit the 1 per cent on country
sales to the "Rural Rest Room
Kund." Let the merchants all
igree to pay a certain sum per
month to maintain such a rest

hey support the band or the ball
team.
If vour town is incorporated
let the village council add a bud.
get to meet the deficiency, or
carry the whole expense.
Let’s have a rural rest room in
every village. A large waiting
room with comfortable rockers;
a large reading table, with books
papers and magazines; a couple
of cribs in one corner where tired
little baliies may nap while moth
er rests; a toilet room; a couple
of baby carriages, that mother
may not be obliged to carry the
little one from place to place.
A place where bundles may be
lol't. and where a matron would
be in charge from 9 o’clock in
the morning until the stores
closed at night. This would trans
form shopping in a country vil
lage from a task, a day of work,
worry and inconvenience, to a
day of real pleasure; shopping,
such as is enjoyed by the iadies
of our cities.—Grant Soicum, in
The Progressive Farmer.
