Yon Can Depend
On Yonr Neighbors
By H O LLA N D .
O whom do yon appeal for
help In time of trouble
or sickness? On whom would
you depend If dread misfor­
tune laid Its heavy hand on
you? Your neighbors? Ex­
Man is a gregarious animal,
and he naturally cares for
relatives, friends and ac­
strangers. Social affairs de­
pend entirely on acquaint­
anceship, and business affairs
are controlled to large extent
by the same element
would be better If business
and friendship were still more
closely linked.
I f you would depend on
your neighbors In time of ad­
versity why not depend on
them In prosperity? Isn't the
man whose hand you would
like to grasp tbe man to
whom you oaght to hand the
dollar that you have to
spend? Why send It away to
a mall order house which
would be Interested In a
death In your family merely
because It offered a possible
chance to sell you a tomb­
stone or a crape band for
your hat?
You know your neighbors
are reliable, that they can
be depended on, that they
would come to your aid with
sympathy or material help
■hould the occasion arise.
Then why not show that yon
appreciate their good quali­
ties by doing business with
them regularly and aa a mat­
ter o f habit? They know you
and are Intereeted In you.
The mall order man la mere­
ly Interested In getting your
money, and that In advance.

In the early days of the exploita­

petitive, i u
a necessary occur­
rence. H. N. Caaaon in “ The Ro­
mance of the Reaper” tells the fo l­
lowing atory of William N. White-
ley, “ the Charlemagne of the har-
veet field:”
He was as tall as a sapling and
aa strong as a tree. As a professor
in the great school of agriculture he
has never been surpassed. He could
outtalk, outwork and generally out­
wit the men who were sent against
him. He was a whole exhibition in
“ I ’ve seen Bill Whiteley racing
his horsea through the grain and
leaning over with hia long arms to
ick the mice’s neats from just in
ront of the knife,” said an old
Ohio settler.
The feat that first made Whiteley
famous was performed at James­
town, 0., in 1867. Hia competitor
was doing as good work as he was,
whereupon he sprang from his seat,
unhitched one horse and finished
his couree with a single surprised
steed pulling the heavy machine.
His competitor followed suit and
succeeded fully as well.
This enraged Whiteley, who at
that time was as powerful as a
young Hercules.
“ I can pull that reaper myself!”
he shouted, turning his second hone
looee and yoking hia big ahoulden
into the harness.
Such a thing had never been done
before and has never been done
since, but it is tru&rihat in the pas­
sion of the moment Whiteley was
filled with auch strength that he
ran the reaper from one aide of th*
field to the other, cutting a full
swath, a deed that, had he done it
in ancient Greece, would hare plac­
ed him among the immortals.
That ten minutes in a horse col­
lar made $2,000,000 for Whiteley.
His antagonist, Benjamin H. Ward­
er, was filled with admiration for
Whiteley’s prowess and at once pro­
posed that they should quit fighting
and work in harmony.
“ Give me the right to make your
reaper and I ’ll pay you $5 apiece
for all I can sell, said Warder.
“ I t ’s a bargain,” responded White-
ley. And so there aroee the first
consolidation in the harvester busi­
