; An Iowa paper tells a' striking
incident with reference to bpylng
at home, and therbfore draws, a
moral. It is an incident worth re
peating to Benton county and Cor
vallis people. ; It will at least in
terest them. The paper in question
is the Marble Rock Journal. The
story is s follows: f
A man went into one of the Mar
ble Rock stores the other day and
asked if he would oblige him by
exchanging an article he had bought
from a mail order noueer tor a sim
ilar article of another size from the
merchant's stock. The - merchant
almost fainted at the man's gall,
but he was an obliging merchant,
and eo he did not get : angry. He
asked the man why he did not re
turn the article to the mail order
house and have it exchanged.
"Because I have to returu it at
my expense," said the man,

even then I stand a chance of not
getting what I want." The coat of
returning it would be considerable
and it might set lost or broken; on
the trip, and I just thought maybe
you could 6ell it to- some one else,
and could let me have one that fits
me from your stock."
Tne merchant looked sharply at
the man to see if he -was joking or
really didn't know any better, and
seeing it was Only the latter he told
him that be would exchange the
article for him. And he did, and
the man was brofuse in. bis thanks
for. the accommodation. -
.Aad iken ihe mexisiiantjtold..the
mao in a gentlemanly way just
what he had done. He said
"My friend, you live in this com
munity. You have lived here lor a
auod many years. You own a farm
that cost you perhaps $15 to $20
oer acre, and it is now worth $75 to
$100 per acre, and jet the land is
not as gocd as when you bought it.
What has made it worth more? It
is because it is near a good town
to this town to which you and your
neighbors helped to build up by
your patronage. While you were
helping the town with your patron
age you weie unconscious'y doub
ling or trebliDg the value of your
farm. The rule work& both ways.
The growth of the town 'increases
the value of your farm, and the de-
terioation of the town miures the
value of your farm. If you buy
your goods in Mi b e Ko.k you
help to make Marble Kock a larger
town and help to make your land
worth more. If you buy your goods
in Chicago you help to make Chi
cago a larger city and you leave to
other people the burden of building
up your home community and in
creatine the value of your land. If
you help to build up Cticago how
much will it increasa the value of
'You are interested m this town
as much as are the people who live
in it. You trade your produce here
for things that you want, .you sell
your stock and farm produce herp.
or in some other town near htre
and if you are unfortunate and need
financial help, the business men
here, and no one but the business
men, are solicited to raise a purse
for you. And they always do it
whether you have helped them or
not. If you are short of cash, or
your crops or stock are not yet sold,
you ask for credit at the stores
here and you get it, which is a favor
to you though you may not know
it. If you buy something at the
store here that does not prove as
good as was claimed for it you can
bring it back and exchange it or
get your money back. In these
ana a nunarea otDer ways you are
under obligations to this town and
the merchants here to trade with
them, and yet you have sent your
cash to this mail order house to
buy what you want and have not
gotten what you want after all."
The merchant paused for breath
and the man mumbled something
about getting cheaper prices at the
mail order houses.
"If that were true," said themer
chant, "I wouldn't complain a bit.
If you could save money by order
ing of the mail order houses, which
are. the bitterest enemies , of this
town, I wouldn't say a word. Not
counting all things I have said
the fact that you are hurting the
value of your own faim when you
hurt this town; the fact that the
merchants here, or in whatever town
you trade, take you t produce, lose
money on it, and give you goods in
exchange; tne tact tnat you can,
get credit here when you haven't
the cash, and can always bring
goods back and exchange them
when they are not satisfactory; and
the fact that you or any of your
neighbors who arem hard luck.can
always get financial help- from the
m tenants here; in spite of all these
things, if you could get goods
cheaper of the mail order bouses
thaa jou can here, I wouldn't com-
plats. Bat you can't. You have
a catalogue that you can sit around
and study in the evening, and the
prices in it lok cheap because you
hate plenty of time tqjtudy them,
and the descriptions -are written in
fine language. But? if you will
bring in your catalogue and look-
through my store and compare pri
ces right through and if I don't
furnish you the same prices, quality
considered that the mail order house
does, I will give them to you. And
y oil won't be buying anything from
a book description eitbtr. You will
see the goods 'and try them on,
and inspect the quality, and get
whatever guaranty there is on them
and if they don't euit you afterward
there will be no trouble or risk in
exchanging them or replacing them"
"Well, I guess you're about
right," 6aid the man thoughtfully
'Of course I'm right, and the
more you think about it the more
you'll believe what I've said. Here
you come into my store aBKing me
,to favor you by exchanging goods
that you have bought from a mail
order bouse. They made the profit
on the sale, they got your caBh,
they ran no nek, they will not ex-
change it for you, you may and you
may not get what you want. They
pay no taxes here to help run the
community expenses and help ed;
etfate your childreriv""They xio noth'
ing whatever to help this town or
this county, or you; and their prices
are not as cheap, everything con
sidered, as those 01 tne home mer
chants. If you reallv knew how to
save money and help yourself you
would never epend a cent with
them. They make a profit on their
goods or thty would not be in bus
iness. And if anybody is to get
the profit why not give it to the
merchant at home?"
"I never really thought of it that
way," said the man, and l see
now you re light; and you've sure
treated me white in exchanging
this, and 1 11 remember it."

Tokio, June 22. The position of
GeneraVLinievitch's army is even
more desperate than was that of
General Kuropatin before - the - de
feat of Mukden, and the Japanese
general staff ' expects within a very
short time to receive the report that
the Russian army has either., been
destroyed or captured..
When G?iieral Lmievitch discov
ered that he was nearly completely
surrounded, and that en.oimous bod
ies of Japanese troops were being
massed on his right and left, while
his center was being -i constantly
ehelled by'field artillery, he appar
ently realized that it was impossv
ble for his 35o,ooo men to withstand
the assault of such superior strength
as Oyama's and he determined on a
feint, in the hope that he might
draw off some of the Japanese for
ces. He ordered General. Mlstchen-
ko, with bis Cossack division, to at
tempt to penetrate the Japanese
screen and try to cut their lines of
communication. V S -''
After losing heavily in several
engagements, the Cossack chieftain
made his way through . Mongolia
and swept around the Japanese, left
in the hope of drawing back some
of the troops from the north, in
stead the Japanese simply moved
forward a new army from Wonson
and drove the Russians back. "'
General Oyama'a troops have
now cantured all of the most im
portant positions necessary for the
success of his contemplated move
ment, and word 01 a general en
gagement is expected momentarily
Maximo Gomez was interred this
evening after a funeral service so
replete with demonstrations in hon
or of the dead general as to lead, in
several instances, to scenes of disor
der. ' '
The most serious trouble occur
red while the great procession was
passing Central Park, when 'some
reckless Cubans rushed toward the
field gun caisson on which the re-'
mains of the general were being
carried, demanding permission to
carry the body. They were thrust
back and then a bigger crowd rush
ed forward and swayed back and
fro across the broad street, tempo
rarily disorganizing the procession.
The arrival of a big force of rural
guards soon resulted in the restor
rtion of order and the burial of the
remains of General Gomez was ac
complished juBt before sunset in
the presence of a quiet and reverent
multitude.' ' . ..- " . -
The procession was the largest since
the establishment of the .republic.
In it were included the members of
every department of. the govern
ment, national and. municipal and
a thousand personal friends and fol
lowers, including President Palm a,
all walking with bared heads.
