Jack Hannaman, driving his car from
i the depot south on College avenue,
i at a speed not safe, especially on Sat
jurday while the streets are thronged
with people, wagons and carriages,
struck George W. Young, at the cross
ing near the Central State Bank cor
ner, throwing him to the pavement,
crushing the flesh on ihe right side
of his face in a terrible manner, also
mashing his finger on the right hand,
making amputation necessary. Drs.
Gregg. Linney and DeGroat attended
the wounds of Mr. Young. As far
as they could ascertain there were
no internal injuries. Mr. Hanna
mann was driving his car entirely too
fast, and taking into consideration
the fact that the streets were crowd
ed with numerous teams, seems to
the writer to be a gross piece of
carelessness. The pavement show

2S feet from the crossing, the pave
ment showing the slide very plain

other vehicle. After striking Mr.
Young the car dragged him by the
head about fifteen feet before stop

has repeatedly brought this matter up

will it stop? When some one is kill

In theory there is no such thing
as "Jobber vs. Retailer;" in practice
there is a little, a very little.
Because of that very, very little, we
have read and heard some arguments
pro and con lately. The last was a
short editorial on the subject tjuoted
above, in the official publication of
the Nebraska Hardware Dealers.
the writer ot tnat editorial very
clearly and wisely concluded that the
jobber who tries to "play hob" with
his clients by any unfair selling meth
ods or acts, who tries to give them
the "dooble-cioss," is merely using a
two-edged sword that will ultimately
cause his own destruction.
That is true; we certainly and pos
What we object to is the implied
idea, not in this one editorial alone,
but in other such discussions of the
topic, that there is anything like
enough of this sort of a short-sightedness
on the part of jobbers or
manufacturers to make it necessary
for retailers to be on their constant
No such thing. There is so little of
the element of "Jobber vs. Retailer,"
especially in this territory, that it can
1 e ruled out cf the reckoning.
And all this sort of talk seems so
foolish and useless to us. The idea
f wholesalers and retailers ever
thinking they have any quarrel or any
cross-purpose is about as absurd as
for two divisions of an army to begin
lighting each other while facing the
lire of a common enemy.
This is competition enough to
f.ght that needs all the co-operation
nv.d all the power and strategy of both
the wholesaler and retailer without
having these.two opposing each other.
There is eternally bobbing up this
question of obligation. Even in such
matters as this outing that is plan

August. Some retailers say they don't
want to be under obligations for such!
things to the bounty of the whole
salers, and unfortunately, there is oc
casionally a wholesaler who thinks
that every time the retailers want
something of the sort they come to
the wholesaler for a "donation."
That is all nonsense, and doesn't
represent even one per cent of either
wholesalers or retailers.
When a customer comes in and buys
something in your store, are you un
der obligation to him, or he to you?

When you have a Fourth of July
celebration or other entertainment,
financed largely by your and other re
tailers of your town, are the farmers

The relation between the whole
salers and the retailers is largely the
same as that between the retailers
i nd the farmers.
Only there should be a still closer
i elation between wholesaler and re
tailer, because they are both in the
business of distributing merchandise
and have no other interests, while the
farmers have, since they are also pro
ducers. When such an event as this outing
for merchants is planned and when
the wholesalers and manufacturers
of a city like Omaha help to finance
Ihe affair, it shows nothing nuns than
their willingness to co-operate, to do
their share, and it shows nothing else.
The wholesalers know they will
ultimately profit if their customers
are better retailers, so they are wil

purely a business proposition and
they want the retailers to look at it

thing as "Jobbers vsl Retailers."

The Place to Buy Lumber.
There never was a season so favor
able for building and making im
provements around your farm home
as this one has been, and the activity
around the Murray lumber yard is an
evidence of this fact. More of all
grades of lumber is being sold this
spring than for many seasons. The
demand for good goods and the fact
that it can always be found at this
lumber yard at the right prices are
the causes for the increased business.
Mr. Kikendall is after the lumber
business of this locality, not only from
the fact that it is due him, but be
cause he is ready and willing to meet
all competition on the numerous
grades of lumber.
