Still Another Side to It
In the last als months Nebraska has bem treated
to two object lea ona, one Illustrating the slip-shod
system that prevailed In the government of a small
municipality. A village treasurer kept book a In which
a trial balance was a thing unknown. The, villas
board required no monthly atatement The mayor waa
known to alsn warrants In blank, the treasurer to fill
In the name and amount, quite at variance with the
spirit of the law. As a result expert accountants
admit that the enact status of the affairs may never
be ascertainable, unless the missing treasurer returns.
But there is still another side to it, which,
while not In the least excusing or palliating dis
honesty In any custodian of public rnoney or
contributory negligence of his associates In pub
lie office, calls for serious attention. In this
case the delinquent treasurer was nnder bond
given by a surety company In the same way that
other treasurers are bonded, the transaction
being strictly a matter of business so far as tbe
bonding company is concerned. The public has
been led to believe that these surety company
bonds not only promise indemnification, but
provide against a shortage through periodic
check by experts. But the bondsmen for this
treasurer for a doses, years never checked any
thing they took the money paid as premium
on the bond, and gave nothing in return, not
even the oversight thst a personal surety would
have given. Instead they lulled to sleep with
a falre sense of socurlty the other officials, who
should have been wide awake and alert. If the
tondlng companies are not careful, the next
thing that will confront them will be state legis
lation for a public Indemnity fund . through
which the taxpayers will themselves Insure the
honesty of their officials.

Arbitration Again 'citified.
The outcome of the Chicago street railway
labor difficulty is another splendid proof of the
efficacy of arbitration. A , great strike was
called off in its lnclpteucy, the. service on the
city's street car lines was restored, the publio
was spared great Inconvenience and all the un
desirable features of a labor war were averted
by the resort to arbitration. As a further re
sult, the men ga'n a substantial Increase in
wages, and relief in other directions that will
greatly improve their situation, while the com
panies gain In the continuous operation of their
lines under peaceful conditions.
Neither side to a labor dispute has ever yet
been found entirely In the right, while settle
ments achieved by force are not settlements at
all. Adjustments attained by calm and Judicial
consideration of all the elements that enter Into
the dispute are lasting and widespread In thetr
effects. It Is this that is lending weight more
and more to the trade agreement that provide'
for arbitration when conciliation or mutual
agreement have failed. The result Just an
nounced from Chicago Is an encouraging sign
that we are coming to substitute reason tor
Foreign Trade After the1 War.
The vice chairman of the United States
Trade commission predicts great wealth for the
United States, to be derived from the foreign
commerce that will be built up aa a result of the
war. This note has been struck many times of
late, the conclusion being so obvious as to fairly
obtrude Itself. Conquering foreign fields In
commercial endeavor has been a continual sub
ject of discussion for months, and the latest of
plans proposed is one In which the Trsde com
mission is taking an active part. It compre
hends the adoption of a system for co-operative
selling, by the manufacturers of the United
States, along the lines of the German "kartel."
This touches the whole question of combina
tion la trade. The United States was already
well established as an exporter of manufactures
before the war broke out in Europe, meeting
German, British, French and Belgian competi
tion lnthe world markets. This waa notably
tiue In the lines that are represented In this
country by strong organisation, such as agrlcul
tural machinery, which, by tbe way, has been
hit hardest of all by the war. Some of the
bigger domestic combinations, such as the com-
panlea that control in copper, have very sud
denly developed a marked regard for the antl
trust laws, and ask for permission to unite on
foreign trade in order to be free from possible
prosecution. It seems quite certain congress
is to be approached oa this topic.
In the meantime, natural factors are work
lug in favor or the United States. European
manufacturers are sadly handicapped by the
war, and will be In even a worse plight when the
war la over. Their business has been disrupted
in all Its activities, their working forces dis
persed and it will require many months to bring
about the readjustment needed for efficient op
eritlon after peace Is finally declared. This
gives the United States a tremendous advanUge
and Justifies the belief that America will domi
nate the world's commerce.

Adventures in Shopping

OMETIMB8 ah shops alone this lady sometimes
pins adventure or two.
And how they vary! They're as full of queer
twists and turns aa the heart of woman Itself. They
are unpleasant and pleasant, commonplace and excit
ing. In turn. From contented laughs over successful
shopping episodes she runs the gamut to stormy tear
of Indignation. Perhaps the telling" of a few of these
adventures may mean more than the mere setting
down of sprightly conversation. Something tells ma
The first that comes to mind Is that of the slip
pers. They were purchased last summer; the methods
in vogue at the two shops entered were so extreme
as to be amailng. It aeems Impossible thst two up-to-date
shoe stores, standing almost shoulder to shoul
der, should show such a disparity In salesmanship.
Let the lady tell about It:
"Well, t bought my slippers today," she said one
evening, "and aurh a time! First I went to H'a.
Well! I'll tell you one thing: I'll never go there again.
"What do you think the womeji said to me? It
was early In the morning, you understand, and she
waan't a hit busy. I thought I'd surely get the best of
attention. I told her exactly what I wanted. Tes,
she had them. Bhe went away for a moment and came
back with a rather aood looking slipper, but the mo
ment she tried It on I knew It was much too big. 1
told her so and X wish you could have seen the look
she gave me. 'Too blgr she said. 'My dear young
lady, I wouldn't sell you a smallsr shoe.'
"I simply oouldn't resist saying, 'Vary well, don't
bother; you couldn't sell me anything now.'
"Then I went over to 8 s. They were busier than
he other placa, but I didn't have to wait long. A
nloo, middle-aged woman waited on me. and as soon
as I told her what I wanted aha showed signs of be
ing Interested. 'Why certainly.' she said. 'I think. I
have exactly what you want' She was back In a
moment. And and I suppose the price vraa a dollar
or two more than I should have spent but It was
"But listen, here's the point. I aaked her If she
thought I rould wear a shoe like that It was rather
extreme. 'Extreme r aha said. 'Why. you could wear
any shoe In our store.' "
What a difference Just a few words make.
Flattery? Well, maybe. But it did more good
than the other woman's talk. The lady bought that
pair of shoes, you may be euro even though they did
coat 13 more than she wanted to pay. As for the
virtues of S.'s shoes ell you have to do is mention
the word, and the lady breaks Into the talk with some
thing like this: "Personally. I like S.'s. I had more
satisfaction In buying this last pair their than"-an3
"My. I'm tired." complained the lady late one
afternoon, "and I ought to go over to Turner's for
bread and augsr. I'd telephone for It, but they'll think
I'm crasy If I nsk them to send over such a small
order. I suppose I'll have to go."
Tired aa she was, the lady was not too tired to
wait for Mlaa Ella, her favorite saleswoman at Tur
ner's. She gave her order, received the goods, and
then said: "You know, Miss Ella, I often need one
or two little thlnrrs snd hate to call you up to send
them. What do you people consider an order large
enough to deliver?
Right there Miss Ella made her lasting Impression.
"Mrs. Bee, any time you want a single thing a loaf of
bread or a lemon, Juat you call up and aak for me.
I'll sea that It's sent andV sent promptly, too."
The Irony of It Is: Miss Ella's health made her
leave the big grocery Just a few weeks later. But
you couldn't pry the lady loose from dealing there
for her the place has tradition
We needed a enreen, a nice, low mahogany screen
and It didn't dare be above a certain height. The
lady said so. Our friends said they didn't think, they
were made Ilka that snd I'd probably have to have It
built to ordor. There were two furniture houses to
which we usually went before making a purchase. We
went to the first and put the question to the man
who usually waits on us. He said he was afraid they
did not have It. "But let's go upstairs a moment,"
he Invited. "I'd like to show you what we de have."
It developed that he had In stock a screen of ex
actly the same dimensions and general appearance, but
Its frame was a rather unattractive "mission-finished."
The lady passed me a tiny wink. That meant
let's try the other place. (Bo I aroke up and told him
how much we thanked him, bnt we didn't think we
could possibly use that one. Perhaps we would stop

rould send this one up to the house and you oould
use It and then send It back when your own arrives."
It sounded so much like getting something for
nothing thst neither of us could quite find words to
express our appreciation; but after we got home and
thought it over, the good business of the deal the
fact that he kept us from leaving the store and trying
his biggest rival, the fact that he held us off and at
the same time did us a favor, and so on appeared
In Its proper light.

not a'tall," the raven-haired gent assured us. "but
here Is a overooat. young man, that you'll make a
mistake not to take."
I looked at the lady. 8he actually seemed to like
It the salesmen's method. I mean. He oertalnly was
trying hard to sell me that overooat. "But Where's
the dark Oxford of this style that I saw In the window
a few days aaot"
"Young man, X tell you the truth, we had Just
about half a dosen of them Oxfords in stock and they
are all gone mostly to old men."
"Very well.'.' I said. 'If you don't have any of
them left I think Til wait 'til next week. Tm going'

"N'Tork!" he shouted. "N'Yorkl That's my horns
young man. I know all about N'Tork. Now under

All the time I wss getting more disgusted with
his aggressiveness, take-lt-whether-you-want-lt-or-not
style. It was after noon, so It occurred to me that It
might be possible to escape by calling attention to
the fact that we all must oat "We are Just on our
