the rights of the public.
Filt years ago the (own
merchant set in his store and
waited for business to come
to him.
Today the successful mer
chant is a hunter—lie must
go out gunning for customers
—and his ammunition is his
stock in trade and his gun is
the local newspaper.
Country people of today
are as intelligent and up-to
date as their city cousins, and
they guage the merchant by
his own actions.
If he is a hustler—if he
keeps his store clean, his goods
neatlydisplayed, his advertise­
ment running regularly

public eye, and the public
