Marshall Flold, Chicago's formor
inorcliniit and president or tho com
pany that boars his namo mado tho
following stntoment In addressing n
convention of Country merchants:
"Vou country merchants constantly
speak of tho mall order houso pro.
blom and yet you do not seom to
rcnllzo Hint you aro tho muse and
also too solution for It."
This was n strong stntoment and
yet It is surprisingly true.
Whon tho farmer desires to buy
products such ns groceries, dry
goods, hardworo otc, thoro automa
tically comos to his mind tho iiinncs
of n number of dealers engaged In
tho handling of thoso products. To
many tho names of tho local mer
chants do not hnvo any grentor In
fluonco In making him decide from
whom ho will purchnso thnn will
that of Soars Itoobuck, Montgomery
Tho nverago farmer fools ' Hint
tho country merchant Is Interested
moro In what ho can mako out of
tho farmer rather than how ho can
aBslst In mnktng tho producer moro
prosperous nnd thereby mako his
own business n success. Tho ron
Bon for this attitude on tho part of
mo ngnruituriBt is largely duo to
the fact that tho merchants hnvo
not demonstrated that they woro
ucttvoly interested In tho farmers
Judging by tho number of busi
ness moil that attend the farmers
meetings, the producers nro scorn
lugly Justified In their nttltudo.
Too often tho commercial men of
tho country pass on tho desirability
or tho undcfllrnblllty of tho various
cooporatlvo enterprises tho farmers
bring Into oxistonco, without over
having nttondod n meeting for tho
purposo of discussing tho vnrlous
plans offered for tho solution of
Tho country morchnnt must keep
In mind that tho wolfaro of his
business ontorprlso doponds lnrgoly
on tho prosperity of tho agricultur
al producors about tho town, Duo
to tho tromondous decrease In tho
prlco of agricultural products, tho
purchasing power of tho farmers
has boon reduced flvo to night bil
lion dollarn. Tho embarrassed fin
ancial condition has nlroady reflect
ed Itsolf In tho sales made by our
largo mall ordor houses. Tho fol

Thoso figures would show In a

Country morchnnts hnvo an ad
vantage ovor tho mall order houses
In that thoy can havo personal con
tact with those who Ho In tho rural
districts. Fow country business
men hnvo capitalized this to tho
fullest oxtcut possible. "Good Will"
Is a vnluablu assot nnd represents
tho doslro of your patron to deal
with you rather than with any ono
olso ongngod In tho snmo lino of
business. In ordor to ncaulra tho
good will of tho farmer n morchnnt
must first, soil nt rcasonnhlo prices;
second, rendor efficient sorvtco, nnd
third, tnko an active luterost In tho
affairs of th patron with n view to
nsslstlng him to become moro pros
porous. Too many merchants tako a nan
slvo interest rather tjmn nn activo
and constructive Interest In the
agriculturalist's wolfaro. Whnt con
stitutes mi activo nnd constructive
Intcrost? It consists In nldlng tho
fnrmcr to secure all Hint can bo ob
tained for his products consistent
with lnw of supply and deninnd. It
consists In nldlng him to Bccuro
reasonable transportation rates nnd
adonuato finances so that ho may
mnko farming n success. It consists
In nldlng him to tnnko a success of
cooporatlvo marketing enterprises
winch nro legitimate and founded on
snfo nnd sound business principles.
Huslnoss mon do not sccuro tho
"good will" of farmers by falling
to attend fnrmorH meetings, by
knocking legitimate cooporatlvo en
terprises nnd by emphasizing his
Tho Commercial Club that
sponds moro tlmo discussing "whnt
