accept these as a substitute for the

“Speaking of the endless chain
prayer that 1s going the rounds,” said
the woman with tho cheerful voice, "I
aan't see what good that can do, un-
less, maybe, It might start some poor
wretch on the road to glory, but I got
an awfully nice silk petticoat through
aa endless chain ouee. Tho manufac-
turers sent letters asking for five
names and a ten-cent piece. I sent
five names and the ten-cent piece, not
thinking much about It, just trying
It, and It wasn’t long before they sent
me this lovely silk petticoat. It was
the nicest sort of silk, too. As long as

The bride carried the check to a

Then inspiration came. Dipping the

The Great Danger to Local Interests
That Are Found In tho Mail-
(Copyrighted, ic-od, by Alfred C. Clark)
Why should wo trade at homo?
Why should we considor home In any
way more than any other place unless
It pays us financially? First, because
It Is our home. The pride we should
take in the prosperity of our home
town and our neighbors should be suf-
ficient inducement to give them the
preference. Second, because beyond
all doubt or question, If pays from s
The greatest menace to the country
merchant to-day Is the mall order
business, and with the decline of the
country merchant comes inevitable
loss to the citizens of both town and
country. What at first was considered
a great convenience and an exhibition
of commendable enterprise has grown
to be one of the crying commercial
evils. The success of the mall order
house Is the result of constant, ex-
tensive anil Intelligent advertising. It
Is not by persistent swindling as some
tell us, for no business was ever built
up in that way. Tho honle merchant
can do no better than to adopt the
same method, the judicious use of
While the merchants arc the heav-
iest immediate losers, and could do
they cannot consistently ask others to
trade with them whon they do not
patronize their brothers In trade. The
editors should patronize home, and
even at considerable personal sacrifice
refuse foreign advertising for lines ol
goods lu competition with the home
merchant. The editor deserves mors
credit than he receives. Many a woll-
to-do farmer or city man would think
himself perfectly justified in sending
away for all his groceries and cloth-
ing if he thought ho could save ten
dollars thereby on a year’s purchases,
but most editors forfeit muny times
that much every year by refusing ad-
vertising from distant firms In the
same lines of business as his home
merchants; and sometimes the home
merchant even then declines to ad-
Trade-at-home clubs might bo op
ganlzed, with mottos something like
Club,” or “I Patronize the Home Mep
chants," or "I Buy Nothing from Mall
Order Houses,” for members to dis-
play. The acceptance and displayln|
of such a card might constitute a pep
so nor member.
Much of the trading away Irons
home Is due to thoughtlessness and
ignorance of business principles.
Many persons consider only the first
cost; if they save 25 cents on a ten-
dollar order by buying from a mall
order house they consider that clear
gain. They should be shown that t
merchant and his family living la
their midst, keeps up a house, pays
fixes, adds to tho social features, con
tributes generously towards public en
terprises, etc. If by buying at home
their town gives support to several
more local merchants, creating a bet
ter home market, they get back a lib-
eral percentage. Every man and worn
an takes more or less pride in local
affairs and Is willing to contribute
something toward home Improve
ments, if the matter is fairly pro
Are you operating the tread mill to pour the wealth of your community
into the bottomless hoppers of the mail-order house? Are you driving your
local merchants out of business? If you are you are killing your town and
your own interests.
much toward checking and correcting
this growing evil, by liberal advertis-
ing and publishing prices, they should
not bo expected to do it all. Every
newspaper should preach homo trade,
every teacher should Instil It Into hl3
pupils in the school ipom, every min-
ister should preach it from the pul-
pit. The debating societies and po-
litical conventions should discuss it.
The interests of town and country
and newspaper and church, and so-
ciety generally, arc so interwoven and
so identical that whatever injures one
will eventually :;i-ure all. When the
merchants arc roinpclled to bring on
smaller stocks, and employ less help,
and pay cheaper rent, they are not
alone the sufferers; the whole com-
munity feels the loss. The price of
real estate is largely dependent on its
proximity to a good town. Itents are
dependent on the amount of business.
Tho merchant can move to some other
town and establish himself again more
readily than can the professional man
and many others who have built up
business through years of acquaint-
anceship and establishment of char-
acter. If the farmer, or property own-
er in town, want to sell out they are
the greatest sufferers—they can’t
move their property to some pHtce
where people are booming their town
and country by patronizing home.
The remedy lifts in education and
publicity. In many places that edu-
cation will come through bitter ex-
perience. but, in other communities,
where they are quicker to detect the
approaching evil, and heed more read-
ily the warnings of the press and
friends of home, they may correct the
evil more readily.
Wealth and power are corrupting
Influences and the mail order houses
are probably net sending out as hon-
est goods as they once did. They have
learnod the tricks of imitation and
substitution and how easy It is to
deceive the public. But. if the mall
order man U honest, and his methods
of advertising legitimate in every way.
his success is of no interest to ua
and will never benefit our community
in the slightest degree, if crops should
fail or sickness lender us short of
money we could not expect him to
trust us for a dollar—we must always
look to the home merchant for credit
in times of adversity.

are to blame. The near-sighted mer- j

one who fails to raise his ro.ee In
favor of home trade. The editor bold*
the most responsible position and ■
should be the leaded in this move-
The remedy has been outlined In a t
general way. We will suggest the first
steps. Let merchants buv at borne— 1
sented. That is why I say the rem-
edy lies in education.
Most mail order houses claim they
are enabled to sell cheaper than coun-
try dealers because they buy in larger
quantities and get especially low
prices. This is often a base mis-
statement of facts; let me cite an in-
stance: A stock man from eastern
Washington was visiting in Kansas
City. One morning, walking with hi*
nephew, who was a clerk in a lead-
ing wholesale hardware house, he
asked where Bland & Co.’s store was
located. "Don’t think I ever heard of
them,” replied the young man. “0,
yes, I do remember the firm; they
have no store, they have an office in
(giving the name of the building),
but I don’t see how they can sell hard-
ware as low as your home merchants,
for while we sell them goods at less
than retail price, we don’t give them
as low prices as regular dealers, bo-
cause they buy in-such small quanti-
ties, just as they get orders." The
stockman was greatly surprised, hs
supposed he had been dealing with
one of the largest firms In the city.
the mall order business has devel-
oped so slowly, and works so quietly
that few persons realize the magni-
tude it has assumed nor to what ex-
tent it is now sapping the life-blood oI
many small cities and towns. Even
now we hear the excuse given tor
sending away for goods, that the mep
chants carry such poor stocks. The
wonder Is that they carry any.
It Is a fact that country merchants
sell the same class of goods cheaper
than the big city merchants, and there
are good reasons for it—difference to
rents. Insurance, clerk hire, etc. The
same is equally true as to the mall
order house—It may save in rent and
in several ways over the big mep
chants, but It pays more for advertis-
ing, packing and shipping, so that
for the same quality of goods, the
home merchant can* and generally
does, undersell the catalogue house.
The latter makes selling goods a study
and his advertising is carefully word-
ed and weighed. He uses a few stand-
ard articles for bait, by selling them
at cost, but he adds enough to ths
price of other articles, with which the
'public is not familiar, to make np ths
loss. Perhaps the country merchant
could not duplicate the price on these
articles while he would be perfectly
willing to sell the whole bill ordertA
at the mall order bouse price.

United States' Banking Power.
The banking power of the United
States, capital, surplus and circula-

Rldgely’s 1906 report, is $16,402,470,-
465. All foreign countries combined
have a banking power of only $22,-
952,500,000, or only $6,490,020,535 more
than that of the United States alone.

creased Its banking power by 219 per
