Elaborate plans arc well under way
tor the holding of the Seventh An
nual Northern Arizona State Fair, at
Prescott, October 16-17-18. The ex
hibits this year will far surpass those
of former fairs. From Mohave
County, an excellent mining display
has been collected by Commissioner
MacDuffee. Exhibits in the agricul
tural hall will be made by Apache,
Coconino, Navajo and Yavapai. Yav
apai will also have a splendid exhibit
in the mining hall. In the women's
department, the displays will contain
many new and interesting culinary
and needle work specimens. Special
demonstrations of an educational
value will be made in all departments.
The poultry show will be the official
American Poultry Association show
for the State of Arizona for the year
1918-1919 and ribbons of that asso
ciation will be awarded. Many en
tries from all parts of the State, in
cluding the Salt River Valley, have
been made in this department. En
f tries in the Poultry Department will
close Oct. 13.
The Art Department will feature
one of the finest art collections pro
duced in America. The paintings
4 have been secured through the Ten
rainters Club of California. This col
lection won all honors at the Califor
nia State Fair, recently held at Sac
ramento. While the Northern Arizona State
Fair is an educational fair, yet at
the same time the management has
followed since the inception of the
Fair, the plan of giving the visitors
to the Northern Arizona State Fair,
good clean entertainment during" the
days of the Fair. At the 1919 fair
there will be many special attractions
which will appeal to all. Thrilling
airplane exhibitions will be given dur
ing the three days of the Fair, Band
concerts will be rendered by a twenty
piece band, at the grounds during the
Fair program and on the Plaza both
mornings and evenings of the three
days festival. One of the best fair
track programs ever staged in North
ern Arizona will be under the direc
tion of Lester Ruffner. Captain
Grant, of Whipple Barracks, is ar
ranging a special sports program to
be given by the men from Whipple,
"if New and sensational thrills will be
introduced at the grounds. Each
evening of the Fair, there will be
dances held under the auspices of the
American Legion, Earnest Love Post.

Oh, the sighing winds of autumn
And the sere, the yellow leaf
Only fill me with forebodings
Of a not far-distant grief.
For they solemnly remind me
"Tis a thought to chill my soul
That ere long I may be paying
Half my income out for coal.
(From "Through the Meshes")
The big problem before all big busi
ness is to educate the public to un
derstand that large earnings are not
in the size of the individual profits
on each sale, but rather in the num
ber of profits on many sales.
That it is not, for instance, the
amount of the profit per pound of
meat the packers sell, but rather the
aggregate of the fractional profit on
the number of pounds.
It is what the average merchant
calls "turnover".
It is a gigantic task to get the pub
lic to understand this, particularly
when it is considered that even the
average merchant does not understand
this principle. "
But an unprejudiced understanding
can, and must be, accomplished. It
will require time, persistency and
primer-like illustration.
Here is one illustration:
The most profitable item in a 5 and
10-cent store is the one on which there
is the smallest percentage of profit.
This is candy.
They only make 4 net, but they
sell tum-over their stock complete
every week, 52 times a year.
Now 52 times 4 is 208 on the
investment; yet the customers of
these establishments purchase their
candy with a profit of 4 cents on the
dollar to the dealer, 2 cents on 50
cents, or less than one-half cent on
10 cents.
It is all in the number of profits
not in the size of the individual profit.
Another illustration:
Some years ago, the late Cora Dow,
Cincinnati, owner of a group of cut-
rate drug stores, was sued by her re
tial competitors (a group of manu
facturers) for selling certain items
below a fixed price.
She testified at the trial that there
was more money in selling Hood's
sarsaparilla at 75 cents than at a
dollar a bottle.
The judge, jury, the lawyers no
one in the court room knew what she
On further direct examination she
explained that Hood's Sarsaparilla
cost her 50 cents a bottle wholesale.
That in one of her stores she sold
20 bottles to five bottles sold by her
They made only $2.50 on five bottles
in approximately the same length of
time that she made $5.00 on 20 bot
tles twice as much as her competi
tors' profit, and all the while the pub
lic was obtaining its supply 25 cents
cheaper per bottle.
An understanding by the people of
this principle of turn-over is the large
question before big business and all
business today.
The Water Users association of the
Salt River Valley have at last realized
the necessity of an auxiliary power
plant to tide the people of the valley
over the low water period at Roose
velt dam. During certain parts of
the year the water in Roosevelt lake
has to be conserved and as a result the
problem of improving the power for
uses of mining and other companies
has become acute. The Ray people
use an enormous amount of power,
which during the wet season is readily
met, but as the water is lowered in
the lake some other unit must fur
nish the lack of Hydro-electric power.
To fill this gap the association has
provided $600,000 for a steam plant
and the work of building the big plant
will soon be under way. The Inspir
ation people, at Miami, have had to
operate their own plant for some time,
but are willing to pay a higher rate
than that set for hydro-electric power
if they are assured of a constant ser
vice. Some time ago the Miner called at
tention to the fact that under any con
dition an emergency plant would have
to be maintained even if hydro-electric
power was possible from the Colo
rado river. Even in Los Angeles,
plants have to be maintained to guard
against accidents to the big power
lines that are carried in there from
Kern and Bishop Creek.
Washington, October 11: "That
the facts and figures gathered by the
enumerators, supervisors and special
agents of the Fourteenth Decennial
Census will have absolutely nothing
i to do with valuation of property for
i taxation purposes is a point I desire
i to emphasize with all possible vigor,"
said Director of the Census Sam L.
Rogers today in speaking of the forth
coming 1920 enumeration.
'Vsome difficulty has been exper
ienced in the past," continued Mr.
Rogers, "in getting absolutely ac
i curate values of land and other prop
1 erty because of a certain amount of
I confusion over this point. Many peo
j pie were erroneously inclined to con
nect the Census with taxation. We
hope to avoid any such confusion this
The act of Congress which, under
the Constitution, provides for the tak
ing of the Fourteenth Decennial Cen-
fsus makes it unlawful for any enum
erator, special agent, supervisor or
other employee of the Census Bureau
to divulge any information whatsoever
concerning the census returns. A
heavy fine and possible imprisonment,
or both is the penalty prescribed for
violation of this provision of the law.
The proper tabulated figures of the
Census are given out nowhere but
here in Washington and then only up
on the express authority of the Di
rector of the Census Bureau.
Actual work by the enumerators in
the various census districts will be
gin on January 2, 1920. It is expect
ed that the population statistics of all
cities and towns will be gathered in
approximately two weeks. Final fig
ures for rural districts, however, can
hardly be gathered in less than a
