The Lord hath need of you; His work is incomplete without you. We may be rart of His jrreat company. He may be a little in front of us, but He sets us and communes with us. Come with us to the house of God; come with us to the word of truth; come with us to the living Saviour. You never will stand in the presence of another life that will influence you as blesed!y. lie goes through sorrow nnd so may lead you. After all its Toilsomeness the church should be the happiest place on earth. It has th be.-t songs, it holds the best thoughts, it has the best associations, it has the only hope. Blest be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love; The fellowship of kindred mind; Is liken to that above. I hope that we can all say from the heart the golden text for next Sabbath. "I was glad when they said unto me. 'Let us eo into the house oi Jehovah.' Saturday afternoon about 2:25 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 ed that his emergency brake was set 2S feet from the crossing, the pave ment showing the slide very plain ly where he had swung around some other vehicle. After striking Mr. Young the car dragged him by the head about fifteen feet before stop ping, and it was a miracle that in stant death was averted. The Record has repeatedly brought this matter up with" the public, of the fast driving of automobiles and jay driving. When will it stop? When some one is kill ed outright?

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 itively agree. 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 guard. 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 ned for the retailers of Nebraska in 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? If he is a good customer, comes rft trt Ki,-c? lai'a-4llr otifl no,. promptly in full, you appreciate his trade, of course, but don't you give value received? 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 who come to town to enjoy it under obligations to you? In short, are the people of your community to thank you for being there to serve them, or are you the debtor because the community gives you enough patronage ts afford you a living? Is there, or should there be, any quarrel between you and the farmers of your community? Don't you think you are so much real help to the farmers as the farmers are to you? Do you "live off the farmers" with out giving them full value for what they pay? 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 ling to help towards that end. Jt is purely a business proposition and they want the retailers to look at it that way. There is, and should be, no such thing as "Jobbers vsl Retailers." Omaha Trade Exhibit. FOR SALE OR RENT.
