To sit at tsbl.s with telephone In
front of them and hear from New York
the strains of a violin, the twang of a
bun.to and a vocalist sing "The End of a
Perfect Day." and the next minute to
hear perfectly an orchestra In "San Fran

CAMBRIDGE. Msss., March 10. I
(Special.) K. J. McVann. manager!
of the traffic bureau of the Com-
menial club of Omaha, addressed
the Graduate 8cbool of Business Ad- j
ministration of Harvard university
last night on the subject of "The ,
Development of a Local Traffic :
Mr. McVann sketched out the his-
tory of these organisations, pointing ,
out that until a few years ago such
an organization aa a traffic bureau
to look after the Interests of the
shippers In rate matters waa un
known to the country.
He pointed out the conditions In
the railroad world that led up to the
organisation of traffic bureaus, or
that made traffic bureaus a neces
sity In the large cities where ship
ping Is heavy.
"The bureau Itself has now become an
Institution," iis'd the speaker. "The city
that Is without one Ik like an offl-e
without a telephone or a typewriter. Its
manufacturers and distributers find their
opportunitlea for trade circumscribed and
their fields of endeavor restricted and
they ar frequently unable to ascertain
the reason why. Their expense on ac
count of freight and express charges
grow unduly large: they find it difficult
to enforce their claims agalnat the car-
rlera for overchargea becauee of their
lunnrance of rate adhmtments and of
tbe Carriers' fear of breaking the law.

"They find tlirnwtvea Involved In
many nredlce and vexsttoua eonttmer

disadvantage when required to appe.ir

the mind of the Individual merchant,
solve his problems, smooth out bis dif
ficult lea and leave him free to prosecute
his real business, which Is the sale Of

"AH over the country, the local traffic
bureaus are at work on the problem of
the Individual snd the community. They

regulations Hint nffeet the business of
their principals or communities, usually.

One of our facetious contemporaries applied this name to our then one store some
years ago. We confess to a liking for this caption it's rather truthfully descriptive
of any one of our present 4 -well stocked, modern Drug Stores. Just now when the mar
kets are so "short" on some lines of goods we believe our customers appreciate a Drug
Emporium, where may be found every needed article in the drug and toilet goods line
and obtain it at (except a few articles) before-the-war prices.
