Willough by, Jeweler. , tCopyrisMed, 1311, by Thomas J. Sullivan. A book with pictures and a book without pictures differ nearly as much as a room with windows and a room without windows, Xor picture are loop holes of escape to the soul, leading It to other s:enes and spheres where the fancy for the moment may revel, re freshed and delighted. They are win dows of imprisoned thought. A picture Is Invariably an exaggera tion of the object reproduced, and, gen erally speaking, to "please it must de ceive. Of Deceptive Value. The deceptive value of drawings or paintings over photography Is recog nized by no one more fully than by the great catalogue houses, hence their adoption of the most expensive method of displaying their goods to the public, well knowing thnt photographs tell the truth, so far as n correct pictorial re production Is concerned, nnd would not be conducive to f;ood business methods when the goods oftered are faulty. How ninny fanners would think of buying a cow from a picture in a newspaper or catalogue, with just a name nnd description under it? Of course the -description would say that the cow was a fine black nnd white cow, weight SCO iounds nnd so many' hands high, free from blemishes nnd offered at the reduced price of $.10.97 because of a spot cash deal with a Ktock farm which failed. There is ns much sense In a pur chase of that nature as there is for a farmer to buy a buggy, "our own brand," at $2l-70,when he can get the real article from his home dealer for $25 and have the privilege of Inspect ing it before buying. And no freight to pay. While talking to a farmer the follow ing was gleaned: "Farmers, as a rule, do not like to send their money to Chi cago or any other place for their goods. They would rather buy of their local merchants If their prices are not out of reason. Merchants generally buy their goods where they can get them tho cheapest, whether In Chicago, New York or Asia, no matter how much of the same goods the farmer has to sell. The price is the first and last consider ation. They fix the price of what he sells as well as what he buys. Can the farmer be blamed for buying where ho can get the best bargains? Ho wants to enjoy the same privilege as tho merchants do. Fair play is all ho wants." Cath at Home Too. Local merchants will quote prices on goods so low that catalougo and mall order houses cannot duplicato them. But you must pay cash. Mall order houses demand the cash In advance. Why not pay the local merchant in ad vance? Besides, when you buy from a catalogue you send your money away from your homo town. You buy from a picture and wait a week or ten days for the goods to arrive; then yon open up your "prize box1 to see what you really have drawn in the lottery and what you ITffe to show for your money. If you have drawn one of their "baiU" you tell your neighbors and friends about It In fact, you will tell every one about It- If you find, as' is usually the case, that you were "stung" you say nothing about it; your lips aro sealed as tight ai deatli.
