An occupation that Is always
attractive to the average Amer
ican boy, who sees only its sur
face features and does not take
Into consideration the energy
and hard work so essential to Its
success. It Is a profitable call
ing, however, for those who
master Its difficulties and at
tend strictly to business.
By C. W. JENNINGS.
NK of the most attractive of
business men to tho aver
ngo youth Is tho drummer,
or traveling man, or com
mercial traveler, or com
mercial salesman, or trav-
sllng salesman, as ho Is called In va
rious parts of tho country. This ad
miration on the part of the American
boy, who is always on the lookout
or somo life-work that appeals strong
ly to his idea of what is both agree
able and profltablu, Is duo to the ap
pearnnco of comfort and prosperity
which tho traveling man presents
When "on the road." This, of course,
Is only a surface fcaturo of the busi
ness and does not d away with tho
(act that underneath this apparently
baro-freo exterior there is tho samo
necessity for the exercise of good busi
ness ability and application that char
acterize most other occupations.
Your boy who has an ambition to
adopt this calling should be made ac
quainted at once with tho facts In the
case. He should bo convinced right at
tho start that the traveling man's gold
Is not all glitter, and that he Is ono of
the hardest worked Individuals to be
found among those who are trying to
get on In tho world.
That wagon load of trunks which he
so blandly orders sent to tho samplo
rooms of tho hotel has to bo unpacked,
every one of them, and the contents
attractively sprpnd out on counters
and shelves and ho must do It all
himself, because it is his taste and
knowledge of goodB which must bo
used in arranging them so attractively
as to hypnotize the local customer
Into buying. After a few hours these
samples must all be packed again
and spnt on to tho next town. Tho
traveling man's easy affability and
happy-go-lucky expression is not as
sumed much for pastime, but for the
purpose of selling goods, and to sell
goods in these days of strenuous com
petition means tho hardest kind of
work and study and acuteuess. And,
furthermore, as he works on a com
mission basis, either directly or Indi
rectly, his success depends entirely
upon his own efforts. This is more
general In his case than in most oc
cupations. , But if your boy still insists on being
a drummer it is quite possible for him
to be ono and also have ahead of him
tho prospect of as groat success as at
tends tho other branches of mercan
Tho best way for him to begin is
with some wholesale house, tho larger
the institution the better. However,
unless in the rarest of instances, he
will not bo able to earn his living tho
first year; for this timo will bo spent
largely In getting acquainted with the
rudiments of tho business. Say he is
a good, healthy lad of 1C or so, with
the ordinary common school educa
tion. Ho had better choose tho par
ticular line of mercantile business he
wishes to follow before ho makes his
beginning, aa it will bo somowhnt dif
ficult to make a ohango afterward.
Ho will bo paid anywhere from $50
to $160 for the first year's work, or

jput to work in the stock rooir
I I Let us, for examplo, say that he
bas ohoson a wholesale grocery Arm
i and that he Is assigned to the soap
department. Here he will see an al
most endless variety of soaps, from
the high priced dainty kind used In
my lady's boudoir to the yellow
laundry soap, and it will bo bis
duty to seo that this stock is kept
up and Is always in order. When
over any of the goods aro deploted, he
will report to the head of the depart
ment and they will be roplonished.
Then he should be careful to noto
of tho way visiting customers are at
tended to by resident salesmen, and
aftor a yoor or so he will have oppor
tunity of waiting upon somebody him
self. If ho makes good at this, he
will havo more of the same work to
do, and after awhile will, perhaps, be
able to show that be can take care of
tho most troublesomo of customers.
agpprfThen It may be after four or Ave
7 Roars' work ho can realize his ambi
tion to bo sent on the road.
During all this time ho will have
icon absorbing everything ho possibly
ban from tho regular traveling men
krhon they como back to headquar
ters, studying their methods of ap
proaching and handling tho retailers
and tho general technical phases of
the business. He will also find that
tone of tho fundamentals of a travollng
talesman is to know all about tho
oods he handles. This includes a
close analysis of the soap Itself, a
knowledge of the process of manufac
ture, of where tho raw material comes
from, of ita chemical composition, of
the prloos at whloh It is sold and the
lowest price at which It can be sold
profitably, of what tho freight rates
will be to the town of the customor, of
tho terms of sale, of the financial
standing of the merchants ho will en
counter in his soarcb f"r trado, of
what competitors are pi i to offer In
Hko way of prices, qualir etc.
In short, he must De n - o answer
satisfactorily overy po&b.blo quo Ion
and r g inu-nt that may be offered by
a .o pcMvc buyer. And, finally
v, u tho crux of the entire matUr
r t bo able to got the man's

order. The most successful drummer
of soap probably knows moro about
soaps of all kinds than any other man
During this process of acquiring
knowledge and experlenco your boy's
pay ImB steadily grown from tho orig
inal olght or ten dollars n month of
tho first year to nearly doulilo thnt
the second, and up to ?30 or $40 by
the tlmo he is watting on customers.
On tho road, ho will bo started at
$75 to $100 a month and traveling ex
penses, and ho must bo able, as al
ways during his travollng salesman
ship, to earn his pay. Ho will prob
ably be given an unimportant section
of a little corner of now territory un
til he has proved himself, when his
route will gradually bo enlarged ac
cording to the needs of tho firm and
his own peculiar ability. Somo travol
lng men nre moro successful among
village merchants than In tho largo
cities, and vice versa.
From this point on thero is steady
advancement, as your boy grows In ex
perlenco nnd ability, and he will bo
getting acquainted with the other
goods handled by his firm so as to soil
everything on its list. As he advances
his pay will Increase until It
reaches and passes tho general av
erage of about $1,800 a year and ex
penses. Ho will find that tho firm is expect
ing him to bo ablo to tako caro of
largor and larger contracts, until he
can go to a newcomer who Is opening
a large retail storo In St. Louis, or
Chicago, or Minneapolis, or somo oth
er largo city and persuado him to
place his entire order, or nearly all,
with his Arm, even though It should
amount to as much as $100,000. By
the time he reaches this height ho will
be getting anything from $3,500 to
$10,000 a year. Somo traveling sales
men earn even moro than this.
Onco a traveling man, always a
traveling man, Is generally the case;
but If your boy has the domestic In
stinct nnd wlh? to pottle down, he
will not lack opportunity; for ho can
become tho head of the local sales de
partment at a good salary or olse ho
can take up tho buying end, which of
fers even greator pay. Anyhow, ho

Tho great antiquity of concreto as a
building matorlal would Justify a
search for early examples of Its use
In architectural expression. But ap
parently this remarkable material,
which, after all, Is only Just beginning
to rovoal Its ultlmato possibilities, was
used by tho ancients only for tho
basor purposes of piling up masses of
masonry, or at best as a backing for
stono nnd marble facings. The first
Buggostion of Its fitness for architec
tural expression camo when builders
took tho ldoa of constructing architec
tural features of cement mortar.
Thoro is undoubtedly a fascination
about being nblo to mold so thoroughly
a plastic matorlal as coment mortar
Into any desired form, or even to shnpo
It by hand, whtlo still soft, and so pro
duce crodltablo work of decorative
soulpturo. But ono Invariably suffors
a shock on discovering that boautlful
statoly collonados or arcados and por
ticos, well designed and In style, are
not built of stono, but that we are
looking at a thin veneer of coment
mortar, in short, that thoy aro a moro
During this period of development,
whllo architects wore being lod to
adopt new materials, they did not con
corn themselves with tho evolution
of doslgn In conformity with their now
materials, and it followed qulto natur
ally that no progress wan being mado
toward tho realization of n real con
crete architecture In fact n attempt
was mado In this direction.
It would bo difficult to estimate
Ruskln's Influence In bringing about a
restoration of truthfulness in doslgn.
Whllo It cannot bo Bald to havo ox
tonslvoly effocted Immediate and tan
giblo results, It did set men to think
ing, and In recent years within tho
present gonoratlon, In fact this subtle
infiuenco Is gradually asserting Itself,
and naturally bringing about a revival
of artistic Inspiration.
It is hard to depart from beaten
paths, and men as a rule will not and
daro not till somo genius carvos tho
way. It Is hard to givo up Jhe old
familiar forms that havo become a
veritable architectural alphabot, which
soems to most of us sufficient for the
sxprcsslon of our architectural ideals.
And now that wo have entered on an
era of concreto construction with a
ouddonnoss that is characteristically
American, wo cannot expect designers
to throw asldo all tradition and mako
for a now Btylo. That will tako tlmo.
Nevertheless thoy aro coming to recog
nlzo In concreto a matorlal that will
afford abundant opportunity for orig
inality and individuality, and accord
ingly bold excursions havo been mado
into tho now field, with credltablo re
sults. Somo of tho most pleasing work with
this now matorlal has beon dono In tho
construction of small houses. The
small cottage or bungalow haH about
it something that appeals to the hom
ing Instinct, and when tho little house
Is well designed this Is Intensified.
Hero Is displayed a design of a lit
tle house that Is to bo built of frame
and plastered on tho exterior with co
ment mortar. Wo know that houses
built In this manner aro cooler In sum
raor nnd wnrmor In winter than thoso
of othor construction, and tho cost Is
very llttlo moro than that of framo
construction. Tho effect of this do
slgn Is artistic and it Is of such a
character as to attract attention, al
though thero is nothing protontlous
about it Such a houso will always bo
salablo, and that is something to bo
consldortd when sottllng on a deshzn.

THINGS TO BE REMEMBERED

Use of Poison or Poisoned
Fow persons know how many re
strictions hedgo round tho privileges
of tho warrior under tho regulations of

Somo of these have n grim touch of

now from tho dishonorable doath of
hanging, nnd Is entitled to bo shot.
Slmllnrly, whllo poisoning streams and
woapons Is against tho code, doad cat
tle may be left in them to cause thorn
to bo poisoned.
Mr. Acland pointed out that a ques
tion to be settled was as to tho uso of
airships for dropping oxploslvos.
Groat Britain, tho United Statos, and
Austria had agroed not to uso ex
plosives from airships, but France,
Germany, Italy and Japan had all
claimed that It was fair to do so. That
would bo ono of tho most Important
things to bo sottlod at tho next ponce

It was perfectly fair to uso airships
for Information, it would bo declared
unfair to use them for dropping ex
plosives or firing projoctllos.
