His Troubles Numerous and His Wor
Certain it is that no class of men
in business is so generally helpful to a
community and so universally abused
as the country merchant.
It is no wonder tnat at times we find
him lighting back.
His business life is one of continuous
fighting for his rights from the time he
opens his doors in the morning until he
closes them at night.
It is little wonder that we find him
“grouchy” and cross at times.
He has to light with the salesman to
get his goods at a price which will ena
ble him to sell them so as to meet com
petition, so as to satisfy his customers.
He must be ever on the alert and
watch everything that comes into his
store to see that only first-class arti
cles are put on his shelves.
He is continually harassed by per
sons who want credit, whose responsi
bility is not the best, and with whom it
would be, oftentimes, a loss to deal.
There are numerous calls on him for
charity and the support of charitable

er, scarcely takes an interest in these
things. He profits by it, however, hh
does every other resident of the city or
town, as does every resident or farmer
near the town, whose property is en
hanced in value thereby.
Since so much is expected of the
merchant, since he employs so many
people in the conduct of his business,
since he is such an important factor in
the upbuilding of a community, why'
should he not receive the patronage
and support of every resident of a com
munity? Why should the money of a
community be sent out of that commu
nity to support people jn a large city?

greater falsehood was ever given in
reply to a question. In one case out of
one hundred this might, to a certain
extent, have a real relevancy, but gen

We would ask you, Mr. Mai! Order
House customer, how do you know that
the Mail Order House can sell cheaper?
How do you know that your merchant
cannot and will not duplicate these

Support of the Home Paper.
Business Men’s Magazine.
Many a good town isn’t wortli a cent
because the local newspaper is neglect
ed. Many a good merchandising center
is dead because the men in business treat
the editor of the newspaper as an object
of charity. This is wrong. The local
paper is the greatest thing in the com
munity. It should be supported. It
should be read anti patronized. The
merchants who think they are Clevel
and smart when they slip one over on
the local paper make a big mistake.
Every dollar you take away from the
local newspaper in schemes and knocks
hurts the town. It hurts business, and,
most of all, it hurts the merchants who
indulge in it.
Whatever else you merchants do, pat
ronize your home paper. Don’t tell me
that it has a small circulation. Don’t
tell me that you reach ten times as many
people with less expense using circulars.
Don’t spring any of those time-worn
gags on me at all. Stop standing ift
your own light. Get behind the local
paper and push it for all you are worth.
I don’t mean push it to the wall. Push
it up grade to a position where it ought
to he, and as sure as you are alive you
will push your own business up with it
to a point you never dreamed of before.
When a man tells me that he reaches
more people and gets better results from
his circulars I know that he is deceiving
himself and telling me-what I can prove
to be untrue. A newspaper in the com
munity is read by the people. They
learn to watch for it, and when they get
it every member of the family wants
his turn to see what it says. Ads. and
all are read. If the merchants of a
community will educate the people to
look in the newspaper for their announce
ments the people will read the paper
more and greater will ho the returns.
Thore is no alley so long but that has
its ash barrels, and there is no knock so
powerful or subtle but that it reacts.
Do yourself a favor and keep up your
end by supporting the local newspaper,
and support it for all you are worth.
The Blessing of Fresh Air.
Riil< inli (N. C.) Progrrasslve Farmer.
Perhaps no other fallacy has done so
much to promote ill-health in the South
as the foolish notion that there is some
thing peculiarly and mysteriously injuri
ous about “night air,” as if night air
were different from the air which we
breathe and which gives us health and
strength in the daytime. We would
have far fewer deaths from consump
tion, far fewer headaches, and a great
many more people witli rosy checks and
untroubled bodies, if people made it a
practice to sleep with their windows
If fresh air cost money, we would
have millions of poor people complain
ing that their poverty prevented them
from getting enough fresh air; where
as, since it costs nothing, they go to
great pains to shut out as much as pos
sible this great health-making gift of
God every night that comes.
Go out of a close, unventilated house
early in the morning into the fresh,
sweet air out of doors and note the con
trast. Can you conceive how it is pos
sible for people to deliberately shut
themselves up one-third of their lives
in the bad, unwholesome air of a closed
room, when the invigorating atmos
phere of God's out-of-doors is free to
every living being for the mere asking?
Even in the coldest weather, plenty
of cover in the sleeping-room with the
windows open will make one perfectly
comfortable, and there are few things
which will do more to promote health
