LET THEM KNOW.
Last week a farmer who Jives a
mile east of Duncan seut to Sear*,
Roebuck <fc Co., for a *uit of fur-
niture. The furniture coat him
at Chicago $25.50, and the freight
on it was $14.50, making the tot-
al cost just $40.00. Two of oui
furniture mou here examined the
furniture and say that they would
be glad to sell the same bill ol
furniture for $^7.50—Duutfan
Possibly those local dealers
could have saved the farmer some
mouey on the deal. But the
chances are that they never pat-
ronized the advertising columns
of their local papers and let the
public know they were dealing in
bargains. On the other hand the
big mail order houses realize the
value of liberal advertising, aud
they do the business. If a mer-
chant doesn't advertise, how does
he expect the public to know that
he is giving bargains? The gen-
eral presumption is that he has
none to offer, or he would adver-
tise the fact.—Lawton Democrat
The writer was amused at the
spectacle of a transient fakir sell-
ing goods on the street comer
the other day. He was wound
up, guaranteed to run all day
without stopping, and throw out
the immortal truths of his trade
with prodigious prodigality. He
caught the crowd with his siick
tongue aud tawdry wares. When
his half day's work was done, no
doubt he could couut his shekels,
raked in from the honest farmer,
by the hundreds. Is it not
strange that our people will be
humbugged by such disreputable
vampires? It is difficult to un-
derstand why a man would pay a
fakir $1 for a set of kniv-s and
forks that might be had from the
local jeweler for half that 6uin—
