Franklin Merchandise Co. I I The following from the Rural New Yorker tells about the way this com­ pany does business. I would like to tell how the Frank­ lin Merchandise Co. did business here. They hired a man or boy liv­ ing in the neighborhood where they intended to canvass, to drive for them, the agent furnishing the rig and paying all expenses, and the driver receiving $2 per day and an extra dollar if the agent sold two bills in one day. He never left a bill where Uiore was no prospect for pay. He put out four pieces of gbods for $37.5U. These to be made up any style you w^hed to have t hem. Af­ ter he got your promise to take the bill of goods you signed a note agree­ ing to pay for same within 00 days or in case of non-payment when due to pay six per cent interest from that tiz:e until paid. He then gave to the parties purchasing his goads what he called a \certificate of agree­ ment,\ the number of garments to be iniide mimed in this certificate, and it read- 'No extra charge only for linings, which shall not exceed 5(3.50 for our best.'' He left the im­ pression that it was only a matter of choice whether you had the gar­ ments lined or not, and of course the ladies all supposed they would get their heavy skirts made without lin­ ing.. Not one would they make with­ out an extra drop skirt, and the very cheapest ones were $2 50 and from that up t o $G.50. The cheapest materia! for a man's suit (lining) was $4.50, the best grade $0.50. It Was one of the meanest, low-down tricks any agent or company was was ever guilty of. Hundreds of F ergons bit at the game and the last heard of them they were going- south T tried to warn the people by telephone as far as I could reach in advance of the agent. From the bill we purchased at 37.50 it cost us f57.00 to get through with it. My drop skirt was entirely too small ^ <-^% mo it I High Officials Predict Bumper Crop and a Car Shortage. TRAFFIC INCREASING Secretary of Agriculture Wilson's i \|essngo—Prospect Could Not lie Better — Railroad Construction Picking Up—Prospect for a Ban­ ner Year is General. the AFTER AMERICAN BEEF,, and is of no earthly good to me is laid away, but not forgotten hope yet to even up with that^on- cern Will people ever learn not to take up with every scheme proposed by a smooth-tongued agent? There is a moral to this:-\Trade at Home! A Profit of $1,000 an Acre. Mr George T. Powell, fruit grower, of Ghent, N. Y., who has made a profit of f 1,000 an acre from pedi­ gree fruit trees tells all about it in \Country Life in America.\ He says in part'-I shall hardly forget thi incredulity which greeted my theorv, first proposed at a nurserymen s meeting eighteen years ago, that we can greatly improve the size, flavor, •• CUIUCB; cause-trlem t6~ne'ar~tull crops every fatorable year instead of bien­ nially, and Tender them lorgely resis­ tant to certain insect enemies and -dieea*o»f»by .4a9an8> of a simple.pro­ cess which takes effect at once, with­ out the uncertainty and enormous waste of time involved in cross breeding. This method is simply the propa­ gation of fruit tress by means or buds taken from mature trees of perfect health and known records of produc­ tion instead of using buds from young nursery trees which have never borne fruit or shown individual merit. For example, you ordinarily have to wait ten years for apple trees to come into bearing, yet I hav«» some Duchess apple trees only three years Bet which bore last fall all the apples they could safely carry, simply be­ cause tliey were propagated from a particular Duchess tree that came in­ to bearing several years earlier than its companions. This one fact would justify a revolution in nursery prac­ tice for, while not all varieties will come into bearing as early as the Duchess, I am convinced that practi­ cally every new orchard in the coun­ try could be made to produce a pro­ fitable crop two or three years earlier than at present if the trees were all budded from individuals that had come into bearing that much earlier than their companions. Our nursery pru> tire is directly responsible for much of the privation and suffering which fruit growers often endure while waiting for their trees to come into hearing. The additional profit that could be gained if everybody were :o use early maturing stocks would run into millions of dollars Tho NVw Kochelle roller skating rink opened its doors to the public for ih» first time on Decoration Day.

Lane, nter-State Commerce Commissioner What Secretary Wilson bad t o say to the Cabinet referred, of course, chiefly to the condition of crops and the promise of a bumper harvest this Fall Commissioner Lane discussed the situation from the viewpoint of railroad traffic. \The prospect for good crops,\ said the secretary before he v ent in­ to the meeting, \could not be better. In the big growing grain regions wha< I have said is true, while in the Southern cotton belt there ts partic­ ular reason for congratulation I even believe that the cotton crop th's year will be better than last year's picking\ •» Exactly what this means in terms of transportation Commissioner Lane set forth by declaring he- beWev-ed that when the time came for moving the crops a shortage of freight cars would be unavoidable. \The volume of traffic is steadily Increasing,\ he said, \and although it is still below what It was at th's time last year, all the indications are that by the time the Fall crop is ready to be moved the increased rail road business will force a car short­ age in short order. \The chief decline in traffic was in building and construction mate­ rials of a general nature and in ma­ terials used by^the roads themselves \At last even railroad construction is showing signs of picking up, and this work is dragging in Its train an increased transportation of coal, iron, oil, and similar commodities Of course, every piece of construc­ tion—in no matter what industry— means that hi J;hat particular Indus­ try there will be further increases. | raprdry7 r ' ~ ~ ~** Commission to Investigate * Meat Trust Asked for in Parliament.

The \allies\ who had de­ cided to Ignore the National Com­ mittee and make a spectacular fight in the convention against the re-elec­ tion oi anti-Taft delegates have abandoned the idea. They are talk­ ing harmony and hoping the Taft forces will concede something to them. Only one thing troubles the Taft men—the apprehension of a stampede for Roosevelt. Talk is heard of such strong term sentiment that the Taft delegates may disre­ gard their instructions and insist on Roosevelt's nomination.

For months we have planned to make the splendid stocks win the greatest-victory of any campaign in the history of the store.

The merchandise will surely win your approval—that's the peace­ ful victory we have worked for and? are confident of winning. Keen-eyed buyers, on hand at the crucial moment, make many a fortunate purchase, so at Wanamaker's there are live bargains in many sections every day, bargains that offer prac­ tical savings. A trip^through the house-outfitting sections will give the greatest pleasure to the home decorator. Ideas galore may be gleaned by an inspection of this part of Wanamaker's, not only for beautifying the house but for giving it a cool, Summer dress at small outlay. A furniture store covering nearly three city blocks offers a choice of pieces and prices practically unlimited. If you have not bought your Summer Underwear, Hosiery and Shoes, try Wanamaker's. No store in this city has such complete and varied stocks for men, women, girls and boys. Wanamaker Shoes, Hosiery and Underwear always win. But every section of the Wanamaker Store is finely equipped to win rousing victories in the Summer campaign of 1908. J@HM WMMAMAM3EM Formerly A T. Stticart & Co.
