"I’m mighty glad to get back to Centerville,’' said
The Rolling Dollar to. the 1900 Dollar, “That Scott Val
ley ia no place for m e Poor crops there this year, so
the merchants have lots of business. That is no joke
either. Those people send all their money away when
they have any, and when there ia no cadi for money or
ders thsy still have to eat Where do they go? Why,
to the .merchant they passed by when they had the
"Poor years ago there were twice as many stores
in Scott Valley, but the mail order bug bit the people
so the stores closed up. Everybody was busy saving
money by buying from the catalog houses.
“Now oops are poor and cash mighty scarce. So
the folks are going to the few storekeepers left and
asking for credit—and getting it of course. Yet the
merchant has to borrow money from the bank to pay
his bills because he is carrying such a load of credit,
for a man who isn’t patronised when you have the cash
can’t be expected to have much ready money when cash
“The bank would not loan the moet'of them enough
to live on for a year, or until the new crop came in, so
the storekeeper is the only crutch to lean on. Where
would tha^e people be if all the stores had closed up?
“Over on Plains Creek conditions are different It
ia a new country, and like Scott Valley the farmers de
pend on one crop. But they realize that without the
stores they would be gambling with little to gain and
everything to lose. Pdblie sentiment is all against
buying elsewhere. If the merchant has not in stock
what ia wanted they expect him to get it for them.
Consequently the merchants can carry the farmers un
til they get their crop money, and nobody suffers phys
ically or financially. Plains Creek people know they
would be cutting their own throats by patronizing the
mail order houses and forcing their stores out of busi
ness. The storekeeper is really the banker of the com
munity, but he is willing to be as long as he gets a fair
‘A catalog house has only two ways of selling,
’Cash with Order’ and ‘Collect on Delivery.’ Where
the fanner has to wait a year for his money how can
he meet those conditions if that is the only way he can
get what he needs?
“The storekeeper in hfltee districts has about the
worst job on earth. If his people have' cash he doesn’t
get it. If they are abort of cash he has to borrow
money and pay interest so that he can give those peo
ple what they must have until they can get some cash
again. And then he won’t see them in his store again
until the crop fails another year.
"I wish one of those Scott Valley people would gsk
a mail order house for a year’s credit The clerk who
opened the letter would fall dead.1 Copyrighted 1914.
