WHY THE PEDDLER PEST?
DR MORSMAN TOUCHES UPON
Peddlers Wares Never Up to Stan
dard Their Cure-Alls Have
Absolutely No Merit.
There are two reasons why the'
peddler peddles. First, he is n sales
man and a talker, lie goes after the !
business and talks up ills goods.1
Second, all people are more or less
lazy. They like to tie things tho
easiest wny. It is easier to believe
tho peddler's talk than to think for
themselves, and it is easy to buy at
their own door. Everybody knows
that tlie peddler doesn't sell tile
best goods. Even tlie buyer buys'
doubtingly, half expecting to get tin*
worst of it, but tlie talk and prom
ises obscure the doubt momentarily
and tlie sale is made,
Quite recently a patent medicine
man came to mo with a wagon prop
osition and offered sixty-five per
cent of the gross sales if I would take
it up. I turned it down. It Is only
one of several thot 1 have turned
down. First, for financial reasons It
wouldn't pay even at sixty-five per
cent; second, because I couldn’t, make
satisfied customers on that quality
of goods; and I believe that satisfied
customers are necessary to the locat
ed business man.
Suppose I luul accepted that prop
osition and sent out a brilliant red
and yellow wagon and out ot' that
wagon somebody, we will call tier Mrs.
Smith, bought a dollar bottle of guar
teed to-do impossibilities -scientifically
prepared electro magnetic blood purl
fier, Sixty five cents of the dollar
she paid would go lo pay for the
man and team. The manufacturer
got the rest of the dollar—thirty-five
cents. Now I never knew a patent
medicine manufacturer who believes u
"small profits and quick sales." Me
never heard of that expression. If
he did lie thought It was some Joke.
Small profits do not appeal to him
in (lie least. Mis motto is, "the big
end for me. the little end for the
customer.” Well now if this particu
lar patent medicine man who got
thirty-five edits of Mrs. Smith's dol
lar was just an ordinary patent medi
cine man, with Just the ordinary pat
ent medicine man's love of profit,
and I am pretty sure he was. then

what did Mrs. Smith get for lier|
noiliir? She got. a good lieart to heart
talk from the peddler with a little
"blarney" thrown In, (that was worth
s<mething), and she got a bottle of:
.some kind of stuff that she knew
nothing about except what tin1 label
told her and what the peddler hud
icpeatod to tier from his printed "in
stinct ion hook," which he had learn
ed by lieart, Now what was in that
hot i? How much of that thirty-five
ents went into the bottle? If there
was more than ten or fifteen cents
Went into that bottle then this patent
medicine man is the philanlhropist of
Ids class. So Mrs. Smith got some
talk, a little "blarney", some print
ed testimonials and directions and
fifteen cents wortii of -nobody knows
what. And she is going to swallow
it for what ails her. She lias to now,
for that is the only way she can get
her money out of it. After she
bought it. she was sorry; she always
is. Hut she is brave. No white
feather for her. There is a dollar
in that bottle, so she studies the
printed matter. That settles It. Stic
has got a dollars worth all right.
The testimonials say so. Ho she
swallows a bottle of stuff that cost
'en or fifteen cents that she knows
notiiing about, recommended by a
peddler who doesn’t know medi
cine from mythology, put up by a
mail who hasn’t even a patent medi
cine reputation, and put up for
sale. Hut of course the peddler
carries other things in his wagon be
sides medicines. He lias flavoring ex
tracts, baking powder, a few tilings
in the grocery line and various odds
and ends, lint medicines are his
long suit. He lias medicine for
everything from corns to consump
tion and veterinary medicines put up

Does tlu> pure food and drug In
spector ever get a chance to see any
,of this truck that is peddled around
the country? Never. It all hears
I the usual “guaranteed under the pure
food law, etc," hut that doesn't mean
anything hut that the manufacturer
has promised to “be good.”
I do not suppose that there is
ten per cent of the stuff the ped
dlers sells that Is up to the stand
ard, and as for his drugs and medi
cines,-well that fifteen
cent-for-a-dollar marvel will not kill
you, Mrs. Smith; the manfaoturer is
too shrewd to risk that, you are safe;
lie wants to sell you another hunch,
hut if you really want to get benefit
out of that bottle throw it on the
ash heap. It will do you more good
there than in your stomach, and
you can credit yourself with a dollar's
worth of experience.
Now isn’t the local dealer entitled
to this business? Of course this dol
lar purchase amounts to nothing, but
in the aggregate the amount is unite
large. Mrs. Smith needs the local
dealer. She can’t buy all her wants
of peddlers. She must buy most of
her supplies of the local dealers. The
local merchant admits his obligation
to Mrs. Smith. He knows that it is
up to him to keep a good stock for
her selection; to give her good hon
est goods at fair prices; to make his
store attractive, and to stand ready
to make good to her if anything goes
wrong. Is the obligation all one
sided? If everybody bought of ped
dlers where would the merchant be?
Mrs. Smith needs the local
dealer and he needs her patron
age and if he is under obligations to
do the best he can for her, she is
also under obligation to give him
ALL her trade so that he may
thrive and grow and make a better
store for her accomodation. She loses
NOTHING by it. She gains by It.
Kvery time she helps him she helps
herself and the community. There
can only be good stores where the
community sustains them, and the
better the patronage the bigger and
better the stores.
