position at Denver has been made into
a National affair and ihere is no pro
scribed territory, the displays will show
what has been accomplished, not only
by irrigation, but in the diy or "scien

Fremont hardware storekeeper ordered
a stove last fall from a Chicago mail
order house. The stove has been kept
on exhibition alongside the well known
makes carried in stock by the local
store ever since and It is believed to
have been the meanB of increasing the
sales of stoves at least fifteen per
cent. "The catalogue houses have
the best writers they can get to prepare
their catalogue descriptions," said this
dealer, "and they say finer things
about their cheap old-iron stoyes than
most of us salesmen know how to say
about the best stovts that can be pur
chased. We cannot nfford to hire
these men who can say nil the eloquent
things about the goods we handle. We
find the best aigument possible is to
have one of the catalogue house stoves
right on the floor side by side with the
stoves we handle. It is easy then for
a customer to see the difference and
for us to point out the cheap con
struction and the difference between
the old iron worked over and new iron.
I know that we have saved a good
many dollars tor customers and that
we have knocked a certain mail order
house out of a good mauy customers
by this means of showing up their
goods. Blair Pilot.
