SUNDAY, MAY If, I THE MORNING AHfORIAN, ASTORIA, OREGON. 6 t 1 CHANCE By th ' Dont Gt in Rut. ' "Are you satisfied with your presrnt tiede? Tou should not be. A store, keeper should have that discontent in Urn which tend to make lilm always a th lookout for more business. To be M.lsAed means getting In. rut or or less. Avoid the ruts. To be desirous of an 'increase means thai the merchant Is fully alive to the sit uation, he Is constantly keeping his store and stock In the best of condi tion and Is at all times seeking every advantage to add a few dollars to the day's business. The merchant who Is satisfied. Is taking great chances of getting tnto a rut and staying theit. the Merchant who feels that he needs little more business and is always going after the trade will never se?k the ruts. He is too alive and wide wake. The Tradesman. """" Fret Offer. Free copies of the Fish and Game lews of the State of Washington, printed In pamphlet form can be bad by application to the Pacific Fisher man, Seattle. The booklet was com piled by T. R. Kershaw, the fish com missioner and game warden of Wash ington. 0 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 O V H Knew How. , , ' C. W. Kilel, following a cus'om es tablished quite a long time ago, on Saturday effer d ten-cent cigars at a nickel Mr. Kriel stated that this custom has helped his trade material ly, as people who had been In the habit .coming lit re on Saturdays only now com? regularly, attracted no doubt by the .excellence of the line carried. Indianapolis correspondent of Tobacco Leaf. - 0 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 work. 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 penitentiary. 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 tore? 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? 0 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? O 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" SHOTS Ad Man. almon, which, of course, It Is nut. On hi contrary. It contains more natural oil than blood red Alaska." There Is only one way to overcome this prejudice of the consumer that is to advertise its I said In these col umns last Sunday a certain biand ot loyal chlnook in the leading tnagst- sines, etc. It mear.s big money for thi man who first advertises a brand .hat way. See the ad man. t Ad Information. Help In the knotty problem of In creasing trade by means of advertis ing, that's the subject 1 love to dis cuss. Practical experience, covering many years with mercantile housoa. newspapers, etc., enables me to dls cuss the subject Intelligently. It will give me pleasure to tell you why Tae Astorian is a good medium for you to use and other things about advertising in its various phases which may Inter est you. I caarg you nothing for any Interview. 09 " 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. 0 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. O 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 lar? 0 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 fruitage is gathered In the busier sea son. It must, of course, be us?d with Judgment. Attempts to force trad that 14 absolute!; unreasonable are farcical. Printer's Ink. 0 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. There will be services in all the churches today at the usual hour. Rev. Dr. Toy will preach at the Metho dist church la the morning, and serv ices will be held at the other churches In the morning. In the afternoon there will be services for men only at the opera house. In the evennlng the churches will Join In a union meeting at the Methodist church. R?v. Dr. Toy will preach and Mr. Dickson, Mrs. Geo. H. Watklns and Miss Larsen will assi.t In the music. A large choir will be present. The public Is Invited to all of these services. Death of Louis Boentgen. Louis Boentg-n, proprietor of the Crown soda works of this city, died very suddenly last evenin gat 9:30 o'clock. The cause of his death was th bursting of a blood vessel. Mr. Boentgen leaves a widow, two sons and a daughter, two bro.hers and four els- ters. He was 55 years of age. No ar rangements have been made for the funeral.
