DR MORSMAN TOUCHES UPON PEDDLING NUISANCE. 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 Old Dutch .Cleanser f Shortens your clean ing work in the kitchen —through o u t the house. \ This One Cleanser 9B *n handy sifter can keeps the house and ^^^B everything in it spick and span with half the time required with old-fashioned cleaners. Cleaur\s.Scrubs, Scours,Polishes For porcelain ware and on the bath tub. Old Dutch Cleanser is the one safe cleanser to use. The New and Better Way Sprinkle Old Dutch Cleanser on a wet cloth, rub well, wipe with a clean, wet cloth. Takes off all dis | coloration and scum and will not scratch. Use it for all your clean ing. The one best cleanser for the farm. LARGE SIFTER CAN 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 , by tlie justly celebrated and renown . ed “Doctor" Anyoldthingtogetthe money. 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. A. MORSMAN. M.D. Morsman Druj£ Co. For Sale.
