His First Step in Running a
Successful Millinery Business'
My fust step r .! h my success
lias beui built commences with my con
tract or agreement that I make with the
cuntero whom 1 represent.
' When a concorn engages a buyer or
jiiar.aKcr of a department he usually asks
tho buyer how much profit he can make
Jn that department. Usually the buyer
tfils his employer of a profit which ap
peal to the employer. To encourage this
buyer to tnako this profit tho employer
very often agree to pay a salary nnd
In addition gives the buyer a bonus of
6 per cent on whatever profits he' can
earn. The buyer usually accepts tho low
ralary offered him with tho Idea of mak
ing up his renttmerntlon from the 5 per
cent of the profits of his department. In
other words, If he will show n profit at
tho end of tho year In that department
of $20,000, he will have Increased his salary
for himself $1,000. This Is an Incentive
to charge high prices for millinery. An
stated above, my first step commences
with my contract, and hero I differ from
most buyers, ns my contract alwnys rends
a salary nnd a percentage on tho volume
of business nnd nut n. perrontagu on tlio
profits. The man that has to show a
big profit in order to Increase his salary
will naturally charge morn for his mer
chandise, but In my ense In order to do
an Increased business to get my bonus,
I must sell my merchandise very low In
order to get tho voluma of business, be
cause the volume of business Is my suc
cess. It gives me tho largest buying
power which In Itself brings down tho
cdst of the merchandise. Where tho
Oliver buyer makes $10.00 profit on one
hat, It has been my custom to sell
twelve hats at 1.00 profit each mid ntlt
mako a bigger bonus tlian the manager
Who makes the enormous profit, because
I have still mado more, profit then hn
nnd have, at tho same llnio pleased twelve

Get uiong without medlciuo if you pon

every day at something you like to do.
Keep up your enthusiasm. Have faith in
Nuture nnd Nature a God. The laws of

of Nature are Hind and beneficent beyond

you may during your whole life escapu

with all this you may occasionally need
But you must remember that you and
your club aro exceptional people, that
the great masses of people go on thought

The medicine Pe-ru-mv Is a climatic
medicine. It is Intended to reach cli
matic troubles, troubles that arise as the
direct result of exposure to climate.
It is also Intended to meet those dif

country is catarrh, and a largo number
of people have catarrh. Perhaps one-halt

is exactly what they need.

sudden attack of cold, a chill, cough,
hoarseness, tightness in the chest, bil
iousness, dyapepsiu, any, one of these
things is llablo to occur at any time In
such a household.
Now. such people ought to have! Pe-ru-na.
At the first symptom that pre
sents Itself, or any disturbance of the
body, a few doses of Pe-ru-na should bo
taken. If tho disease is acute Pe-rurna
hnd better bo taken a teaspoonful eveiy
hour. If it is a disturbance that allows
the patient to go about his usual busi
ness, taken according to the directions
on the bottle is best. If this Is done it
will save tho people untold expense ond
suffering. Not one case In fifty that
comes under the care of the doctor
would occur if Pe-ru-na was kept in the
house and taken at tho very outset of
the trouble. Yes, all this Is true and more.
I havo hoped all my life to live to see
the day when obedience to the laws of
Nature would be prevalent, when the
people would llvo so they Would not. In
vite disease or provoke disturbances' In
the body. But I have not lived to' see
that day yet. But I havo lived to Bee the
day when the people and even ihe medl
cal profession are very much mora in
terested in hygiene and sanitation than
thev used to be.
At one time, as a writer, I seemed to
be nil alone In trying to got tie r.cdple
to listen and become obedient to' tho laws
governing their bodies. Now there are
writers galore saying the same things. 1
am profoundly grateful that this is so.
So long as there are disobedient ones,
so long we must have medicine. Even
those who aro trying to be obedient to
the laws of Nature, trying their very
best, need medicine for unavoidable cpn
dltlons that often bring on some de
rangement If such little derangements
were met promptly with Pe-ru-na the
day would more quickly come when even
Pe-ru-na would not be needed, the day
when the drug doctor would absolutely
go out of business. May that day hasten.
I Bhall do all I can while I do live to
hurry on the coming of that millennium
when all drugs will be relegated to the
rubbish heap and all doctor books laid
aside as curiosities.
