Bp* Ci.' ? 6 Some Reasons Why Not THERE are many reasons why the small merchant should not sit back and let the mail order houses take the cream of his out of town trade. One of them is the parcel post service. Under the zone system of postal rates every merchant within the limita of his own territory may now develop a mail order busi- ness on his own account He can ship goods much cheaper and much more expeditiously than any concern outside his district. Every merchant should at once begin an educational cam- paign of advertising, teaching the people within reach of his in- fluence that it is less expensive, quicker and infinitely more sat- isfactory to make their pur- chases near home than to send elsewhere.

Pi Advertiser's Aim Is Satisfaction By HOLLAND. ONE of the biggest retail merchants In the world, with stores In two of Ameri- ca's largest cities, and who naturally is one of the largest advertisers in the world, in- sists that his advertisement writers confine themselves to strict truth, and any promise made by one of his clerks • is considered to have been made personally by the head of the firm. A woman bought u fine tablecloth, and after she had it home there was a slight Imperfection found. It was nothing to affect the wear of the tablecloth, but she took It back, explaining that she had paid a high price for the article and that she had in- tended it for her "best" She was somewhat apologetic for returning a purchase with such slight imperfection. "You are a stranger in this city?'" asked the floorwalker, and the woman nodded. "I thought so," he said. "You do not understand our sys- tem. Had you kept that ta- blecloth you would have done yourself and us an injustice. When you...

As far as the amendment (reso- lution 18) Is concerned, we believe it will be a good idea to vote against it, and give the next legislature a chance to remove the "nigger in the woodpile. "—Riesel Rustler. That is good advice. One of the provisions authorizes the legislature to issue bonds for any sort of state institution, for anything that can be designated as "a ^tate institu- tion," without any limit whatever. R. A. Carpenter of Dallas well says that if this amendment carries at the polls the people's right to vote on all bond issues will be lost, and any future legislature of Texas . , . , , . can proceed without limit to iwue ,!P®ode8t f°rm °?dance greaCes' m I H ■ bonds |or any and all of the exist- ing state institutions; or can logroll and trade, section with section, city with city, lobbyists with lobbyists, or member with mem...

What Are Yon doing to Do About It? T" WHETHER or not the parcel post has increased the com- petition of the local merchant Is an open question. The fact remains that the parcel post is here and, being here, the mer- chant should turn it to his own advantage. He can do this if he will, though 'necessarily somé changes in his present business arrangements are inevitable. Within fifty miles of his place of business the parcel post per- mits every merchant to deliver goods much more quickly and at a lower rate than any one in oth- er sections. HIS field is materi- ally widened. Catalogues, leaf- lets and price lists of his stand- ard goods, specified newspaper and cintilar advertising may now be used to advantage by the small merchant where afore- time he was handicapped by the costs of delivery and the limita- tions of his field.
