all cla-ves r.f merchant - While the
film depicts the troubles of a grocery
keeper, overy retail merchant find.;
that he has expei ieaecd some, and in
many cases, all of the ti oublef.that
are shown. It is an educational film,
pure and simph-, with very little of
the advertising smack to it.
The first scene shows a grocery
conducted along out-of-date lines. The
proprietor and his clerks are not alive
to their opportunities. They do not
take proper care of the ca.-h taken in.
nor do they have a satisfactory sys
tem of caring for credit sale:; of goods.
The inevitable result is shown. The
store gradually goes from worse to
worse, until finally, in a di.-honrtcned
condition, the proprietor is about to
While he is in this state of mind, an
agent of the Cash Register company
appears. He attempts to sell the
merchant one of the company's latest
model registers, claiming that the reg
ister will overcome all the difficulties
the merchant is having.
The merchant is convinced that ho
does not need the machine, but in the
face of this desire are the past-due
bills of the wholesaler, notes at the
bank coming due, and his possible in
ability to meet the next month's rent.
He decides against purchasing the
register, and in a further attempt, the
agent requests an interview with his
wife, who, like the merchant, sees the
possibilities of the machine, but in ad
dition to the difficulties her husband
,is experiencing, she is wanting a
piano-player, an automobile, and some
new furniture for the home.
The agent, however, persists, and
offers to visit the store-keeper's bank
er, wholesaler, and landlord, which he
finally does. During this visit he suc
ceeds in convincing them that it would
be a good thing for the merchant to
have this new store equipment.
Finally the sale is made and the
cash register is installed in the store.
The film shows how the agent not
only installs his register, but holds
schools for the clejks of the store,
teaching them up-to-date business
methods and from time to time visits
the merchant to see whether he is
getting all the benefits he should from
The final scenes show the progress
