What Causes It?
The man who travels much
oxer Nebraska is struck by the
large number of packages he sees
in Ihe railroad depots that come
direct from the big mail order
houses. Many of these are direct
ed to residents of town, although
the major portions goes to the
farmers. This lias given rise lo
the speculation whether or not
this isn't due. to unprogressive
ness on Ihe part of many country
merchants. Much is made in dis
cussions of (his question of the
superior buying ability of Ihe
catalogue houses, but it is in
sisted by men who ought to know
that their selling cost is above
that of the country merchant. Not
an inconsiderable amount of the
selling cost is consumed in ad
vertising, the printing of costly
catalogues. Some small town
merchants have taken the hint,
and advertise intelligently. They
are not suffering much from mail
order competition. Newspapers
will doubtless be accused of using
this fact for self-serving pur
poses, hut it is a cohl fact never
theless. Lincoln Evening News.
