Are Flooding the Country.
Now is the season when the mall
order houses are flooding the country
with their advertisements and cata
logues. The way for home merchants
to successfully meet such opposition
is not by complaining and growling,
which has the effect of driving away
business, but by imitating far more
than they do tho methods of their
competitors. Mall' order houses be
lieve in letting people know what they
have to offer. Too many local mer
chants act the other way and then
complain of dull trade. Such mer
chants can make no headway against
outside competition. But the mer
chant who keeps the goods and at
tractively advertises them has the
advantage every time. Such mer
chants always have a cheerful smile
because business is good with them.
Overcome by Escaping Gas.
II. P. Wilcox, an employe at the
gas works yesterday was overcome
by escaping gas but rescued before
any serious injury resulted. His con
dition today is reported as better and
it is not thought that any serious
complications will ensue.
The trouble occurred when Mr.
Wilcox descended into the tar well at
the works to put a plug into a pipe
leading into the well. He turned off
the gas as he supposed and started at
his work when he discovered that he
had not turned the valve qufte off
and that he was in danger of. being
overcome by the fumes. He started to
get out of the well but did not suc
ceed before the gas overcome him.
Fellow workmen discovered his pre
dicament, however, and rescued hinu
Later he was attended by a physician
and conveyed to his home.
C. L. Alleman, vice president of the
Standard Oil company is In the city
today attending to business with Col.
Henry C. McMaken, the local agent
of the company. He also met. Fred
Hawksworth, a lieutenant in his ser
vice for Bometime back, but now a
prosperous farmer in Dakota. Mr.
Alleman and Mr. Hawksworth had a
pleasant visit together.
