To the Editor of Tiik Cmr.r:
The urticlo on "Cities Against the
Home," in last week's paper, bet me
It was but recently I saw one of the
leading farmers in this community car
rying a large, bunglesomo catalogue
from a Chicago catalogue house, home
with him. I, got into a discussion of
this question with him and 1 was sur
prised to hear him express himself as
he did. In the first place I feel proud
of the fact that I have never patron
ized one of these concerns in prefer
ence to dealing with our home mer
chants. Probably one reason why I
have not felt inclined to send my trade
away from honie is because it has only
been a few years since 1 found my lln
ancial condition such that it became
necessary for mu to arrange with some
one to carry my account over a crop
season. In fact, it has not been more
than a year since I found it necessary
to run an account for a bhort time, and
1 am not one so forgetful of accommo
dations us to order from a catalogue
house and send them the money with
the order when our home merchants
bavo been good enough to extend
credit to me when 1 needed it. But 1 J
can not bay this influence has been the
only one to cause1 me to trade entirely
at home. 1 know if I, or any of my
neighbors, want to buy something, if
they would only go to one of our homo
merchants and tell what they wanted,
hu will furnish it to us just as cheap
as we could get it from a catalogue
house. Now, I don't mean he will let
us have first class goods at a price we
would pay them for second class goods,
but I mean that for the same class of
goods they will sell us just as cheap as
those other fellows. In figuring the
cost of goods from catalogue houses,
wo don't want to forget to figure in
the cost of sending the money and
paying tho freight or express. If it is
anything liable to need repairs, our
home merchants can get them for us,
but it is almost impossible to get them
from a catalogue house. Of course the
merchants in Red Cloud and North
Branch can not afford to sell us goods
just as cheap as these catalogue houses
and wait six months or kyear for their
pay, when those other concerns require
Pure Refined Grapt
cash with the order, or as soon as the
goods are received. They could not af
ford to do that.
I remember when one of our neigh
bors met with a loss of nearly every
thing he had on earth, by fire, and
when we started out to take up a col
lection for him nearly every merchant
in Ited Cloud contributed something.
No one thought of asking a catalogue
house to help out this fund. Of course
I can imagine how much good it would
have done to have asked them.
I am not a philanthropist and I am
frank to say if anything could be
saved in the long run by buying from
the catalogue houses, I might think
about it, but I do not believe you saye
one cent. I know it is a mighty hard
matter for a home merchant to come
out even on sugar. When he sells me
or any of my neighbors a dollar's
worth, it must weigh up a dollar's
worth, but when we buy a lnindred or
so pounds from a catalogue house it
can be just a little short and we think,
of course, it has bifted through the
bag, or something is the cause of it,
and wo let it go at that.
I know of one of my neighbors buy
ing a cook btove from a catalogue
house. When the stovo came it looked
J!'t exactly Wo the picture in the
catalogue. In fact it wa. like it, only
it weighed about one-half or two
thirds is much as tho same size stove
would if it had been bought from one
of our hardware men. My neighbor
told me it was the last thing he would
ever buy away from home, because ho
knew he was stuck on the stove, for.it i Next week we expect a number more,
was just like the picture and the fact 'i"rt now classes will be organized in
of it being a light weight stove did not t of tho studies. Enter next Mon
give him any excuse for refusing to ! dny "1 e in at tho beginning,
take it. Since then I was telling aj Mr. Gilliam was up Friday and gave
hardware dealer about it, and he said us anothsr of those talks that leads us
ho could have furnished the same
weight stove and delivered it to him at
about SI. SO less than what it cost my
neighbor, counting the freight.
I expect you can bee that I am not
much of an advocate of buying from
mail order concerns and I don't be
lieve anyone else will be if they will
thoroughly investigate before buying.
It won't cost any of us anything to see
our merchunts before sending our
order away, and then if wo don't liko
the price they offer us wo can use our

New School SulldJiig Needed.
When will tho board of education
give our boys and girls bettor accom
modations in tho public schools? Quito
a number of the patrons have com
plained to us and we feel that some
thing ought to bo done, and that soon.
In tho first and second grades the
pupils aro allowed to attend only one
half a day and hence are getting only
about .four and u half months school
ing in a year. One grade attends in
the morning and the other in the aft
ernoon. Tho teacher, Miss Perkins
states that that arrangement was ne
cessitated by tho lack of room in the
It seems that there are more .pupils
than seats. Of course tho teacher can
not como in for censure, but it seems
to us that tho school board should
tako cognizance of the fact that wo
are growing. The buildings, once too
large, are now too small because of
the increase in population.
If this district wishes to keep up in
the educational procession, and wo
believe it does, it bhould make prep
arations for present demands, at least.
All will agree that we want our chil
dren educated, and if a little more
money is needed" wo will all gladly pay
the little for the benefit of our chil-,
The condition in the main building
in tho north ward is very little better.
Most of the teachers have already llfty
pupils and the winter months may bo
expected to swoll' this number to a
considerable extent. Tho question is,
What will the board do then?
Tho teachers can not got tho best
results as it is, and how can they pos
sibly manage when the enrollment
exceeds the capacity? County treasur
ers have always said that taxpayers
cheerfully pay school taxes, and if tho
present buildings are to small to meetr
present demands, it would beom that
tho part of wisdom would be to build.
We invito ample discussion upon this
question and urge parents to bee to it
