Don't Drive Trad Away.
Toe Grocer and Country Merchant
Says that There Is nothing so good as
a combination of grocers to advance
prices for Immedia.ely diveiting trade
to rival centers and for ultimately
. setting the town Itself by the ears." 1
have always contended that It does
" not pay to get the foreign merchant
to come Into the home town with sp?
cials which the local dealer can afford
to sell as well. A special price on
certain article for a day or two Is
sound to help trade. You needn't b: a
. price-cut'.er on that account. The
leading retail grocers of the Pacific
soast and probably the highest grade
grocers, Goldberg. Bour n & 90. of San
Francisco, have special prices on a few
goods every week for 3 days and yet
have made and hold the reputation of
being strictly first-class and r:ltable.
They advertise the specials as well as
ther things. 1

Fill Because It Cam Essy.
Three months ago a certain mercan
tile houes in the northwest put an ex
pert accountant to work on the books,
says Minneapolis Bulletin and Trade.
The bookkeeper had been with the
house for years. He was a trustee
cmployV. There was not even 1
breath of suspicion against him at the
time the expert accountant b'gan
In a comparatively short time the
expert found that the bookkeeper was
short 135,000 In his account. Th?
bookkeeper fled to Canada and later
returned to stand trial. He has now
begun a term of three years In the
A. Timely Warning.
While discussing his troubles with
an old. friend after his arrest, the
bookkeeper was asked how he cams
to launch into systematic thieving. His
answer was this:
"It came so easy."
To every store manager and ev'ry
merchant these words ought to be a
business sermon. Is It coming easy
for some trusted employe in your
If you have a bookkeeper or a cash
ier, do you know whether it is "com
ing too easy" for them? Are you
throwing Fafeguards around them and
around yourself at' the same time to
prevent such falling from grace?
A Useless Employe.
A man who neels wa'.ching all the
time is not wor.h having. Safeguards
to prevent pilfering will hurt no hon
est man's feelings. But how can you
safeguard against the man who stals
your time, while another employe
draws pay for overtime? How can you
safeguard agalnt the department
manager who right along dos that
which hurts your business, whil an
other department manager tries to
build It up? There tie plenty of such
men. The man who cannot take care
of his department without being
watched all the time steals your time
which Is money. Perhaps you could
make more money while you now have
to watch the other f llow. Fire th
useless man and supplant him with a
man who knows his business and be
haves himself like a man. He may
cost more, but isn't he worth more?
Can Be Overcome.
Th Fishing Gazette says that "It Is
rather curious fact that the best of
art salmon, the royal Chinook. Is some
what In disfavor with certain con
sumers, by' reason of its peculiar
pale coloring. , They take it for "pink"
almon, which, of course, It Is nut. On
hi contrary. It contains more natural

There Is only one way to overcome
this prejudice of the consumer that is

" What Fool Ths Mortal B.
I have met the man who puts In
so much time fighting over the little
things in the business that he has no
time to give to Its vital problems.
Many a" merchant gets so made over
the fool words of a fool competltot
that he Is practically no good for a
week. I have seen competitors get to
bombarding each other with cussed
ness so much that the business of
both suffered greatly.
A Big Appropriation.
The Xa.ional Association of Pack
ers of Pure Canned Goods, which was
recently organised in Chicago, will
probably spend $30,000 a yfar In ad
vertising to the) general public the
fact that the goods are packed accord
ing to law.
A Nut to Crack.
Here la a problem that comes from
a railroad ticket office: Can you fig
ure it out? A man entered the office
and asked the price to a certain sta
tion and was told that It was 13. He
had but a 32 bill. He left the office
and took his 32 bill to a pawn shop
and pawned it for 11.50. On his 'way
back to th? depot he met a friend
and sold htm the pawn ticket for $1.50.
This gave him the required $3 for the
ticket. Now who's out that ex'.ra dol
A Steady Pull Draw Best.
' Steady advertising, used with judg
ment during dull periods, serves no
only to make them less dull, but has
also a cumulative effect whose full

Judgment. Attempts to force trad

Various Wa) r.
There are Various ways of advertis
ing. The ad man has never told any
one that newspaper advertising Is the
only way. But that the morning
newspaper Is the best of all methods,
alone, or when used with other m?dla,
has been proven by judicious adver
tisers throughout the world. Good
copy is necessary, however, .for re
sults. Services Today.
