Mergers of Western cattle growers' associations haye appealed to President Wilson through McAdoo to upset the arrangements made bv Attv. Gen. Palmer to compromise the Government's antitrust proceedings against the meat packers John Miller of Fort Stockton, Texas, president of the Pan Handle Cattle Association, announced here today. The growers Mr. Miller said, submitted to the President through Mr. McAdoo a scries of charges to the effect that the compromise does not give them any redress for their chief grievance, which they allege is. the control of stockyard markets by the packers to the disadvantage of the producers. They ask that the prosecution be taken out of the hands of the Attorney General and that new suits be broifght with Francis J. Heney, of San Francisco, formerly attorney for the Federal Trade Commission, as a special prosecutor. According to Miller the matter was laid before the President last week. "We adopted the unusual course of getting the matter before President Wilson." Mr. Miller said, "because we thought it unwise to put our evidence at the disposal of the Attorney Gen eral in view of his attitude as demon strated by the settlement with the packers." Mr. Miller said that in addition to several Texas cattle associations similar organizations in Colorado, Oklahoma, and adjoining States had joined in the presentation. Conferences with Mr. McAdoo upon the subject were held by the growers' representatives in New York, last week, and then the matter was brought to Washington. 12 Ex-Sec. them right now.

It is high time that Cloverport should turn its words into deeds as regards fire protection. For twenty years all have talked, preached privately urging action on this necessity'. Our disaster of 1901 has proven fruitless as an inspiration to protect ourselves. The near calamity recently averted should and must be the inspiration for all to get together and bring about an immediate concrete result. Any action that the City Council could take would require weeks, perhaps many months,to effect tangible results. Such delay in the face of so great a danger should not be permitted. If some dreadful disease were at our gates bringing with it the horrcrs of uncurable mental agony and the devastation of our material assets, we would, We all of us, assert ourselves and try for protection. would not await the action of Council. The strong men and women of the town would organize and meet the situation. This is the action that should right now be taken to get relief from the fire hazard that hourly menaces our very lives and savings of a life time. Some alert, aggressive citizen should canvass the property holders, raise a fund for the quick purchase and in stallation of a chemical fire engine, and then arrange with the Council to buy back from the property owners this equipment as quickly as the City's credit can be turned into cash through a bond issue. The honor and integrity of our Council is such that no citizen subscribing to this emergency fund would lose a single dollar. The City Council is tied by legal restrictions thus the quick action necessary. But we can protect ourselves, and we must do it. re-vent- ing FARM AND STOCK W. R.

Indeed the debutantes of last yenr deserve a special Inning this year. It used to be said one could tell a debutante by her nice, clean little white gloves which she wore throughout the evening, never removing them even for supper; for a debutante of other days was a demure and timid little soul who carefully refrained from "unladylike" behavior, and certainly she never "ate," she only "nibbled" at parties. Nowadays debutantes wenr no gloves and do not worry about their finger tips. New Dance Frocks Are Falrylike. Some of the new dance frocks are falrylike In their beauty, fashioned of clouds of tulle and filmy lace showing through the stuff. The life of a tulle frock Is Just about one evening.

Doubtless he will wear such a coat In this country and It Is Jnst as well to know that the English girls have adopted It as the preferred winter wrap. The coat In question Is quite long with slightly flaring skirts. A wide and rolling collar ended at the waistline with one button to fasten the coat together. It does sound smart and can be charmingly developed in almost every material and trimmed to advantage with a large fur collar.

Webster, Kentucky. It Is to the vounv vlrl that Dealer in Hardinsburg, Ky. Robertson of lace Is a revival of a bygone day, for It has been many years since the lace trimmed ball gown. This type of frock is rather refreshing after the more sophisticated ones of brocade and tinsel which prospered for a time. Of course satin, white or palest flesh pink, is used as a foundation for the tulle and lace dancing frocks. The satin foundation Is tight and narrow and short and the overdraperles are so placed that they form the extended hip seam not only on maturer models but on the most youthful as well. One maker has pallletted an underneath layer of tulle with silver spangles which show with Just enough scintillation through the gauzy meshes. Simplicity the Debutante's Note. One expects the debutante to be wise and gowned with simplicity, mothers follow this rule in the choice not only of the debutfng gown but In the selection of the greater part of the wardrobe as well. The simpler fabrics such as chiffons and georgettes are preferred to the heavier metallic brocade and velvets. The gowns of pastel taffetas are lovely for informal occasions. With these little things with their long slender bodices, pointed in front and fitted with a sash in the biick, are worn tiny caps of the pastel silk to match the dress. This is a Parisian fashion Just being shown over here and suitable for theatre and restaurant wear. Even in the smaller cities young girls go about nowadays to restaurants and cafes for the dancing, which seems to be more sought than ever. It Is for this occasion that the taffeta frocks of the lovely pastel shades and their accompanying cap-let- s are worn. The favored shade for evening wear In the gnv French city for the debutante Is emerald green. This is imily combined with silver, and I am sure we can search far and wid before we can find a more beautiful color scheme. Camry yellow is also very much liked this year, but the more pronounced shades are left for older and more sedate people. Tight Fitting Coats Are In. The coat suit of the moment most esteemed by the young girl has a tight fitting basque effect with a rippled skirt. For very "dressy" wear duvetyn suits in lighter shades of tan, gray or blue are much liked. All of the brown shades are so well liked this season that they afford distinct relief from the long favored blues. However, all can not wear brown, "fray." The tulle hung In streamers on some and one had been "melted" by a sudden downpour of rain. Some of the tulle frocks for the most part of white, as properly the debutante's frock should be ore delightfully combined with a shadow lace.

Everybody tld the farmers wouldn't come In a store of that kind. But they did We put In rest rooms, something they never had before. All the time the advertising was Increaa-tng- . Last Vest's Business $500,000. had s younger brother who came Into the business st that time, He had developed Into a great advertising man. At the present time we have a large comruct with our dully paper for advertising for the year 1020 We pay 30 centa an Inch. We spent Inst year on that business between $10,000 and $13,000 in advertising. We sold over half a million dollars' worth of goods. This year we expect to sell over $000,IKKt worth. We r bundle groceries, dry goods, clothes and the basement Is tilled with shelf hardware, crockery and dry goods. The advertising method thnt we pursue out there Is the newsI believe the paper, first, always. press is the best medium and cannot he bent. Then the personal letter, then circulars, pamphlets anil catalogues. Hut the main thing is the press. In our little country town wdth a little over 1.80O, circulation we can put In an ad. for instance, u suit sale. We run two every year, one In June and another along in September. We send out u personal letter to our mailing list. We have one compiled of only 2.."00 names. Our country Is very thinly populated. We have to go out some forty miles to get this number wonder what we would to mull out. do If we had a 45.000 population right at our door? When we are ready to have a silk sale, we get out an advertisement telling them all about It. Everything is absolutely honest. Our first adver tisement tells tin? people to watch for the page advertisement In the NW paper. On the morning this silk sale is to be opened that entire dry goods section Is nothing but silks, spread out. so that when they come In the door there are silks all ready to greet the eye. We have the price tit;; on them. These sales Invarinhly are a We not only make money success. in that department but It livens up every department of that store. There are u great many people who question thnt method of doing business. We found thnt the consumer used Just as much silk and gets in the habit of using more. Cares for Flu Victims. We run an anniversary sale In the fall. We are also very anxious about the second week In December to move a lot of the merchandise thnt we expected to move in October and November. We use exactly the same method. And. by the way. all during that epidemic of the "flu" we sent sympathetic letters to all our customers telling them how to handle It. In our town they bad no facilities for ttie cure of patients. We bad two large hospitals In the city. Medical authorities took over two stories In the hotels. We advertised that fact through the country, telling them If they were ill to let us know, the ambulance would come at once: and we gathered people from the surrounding country. We bad one doctor to take care of all these people during this time. Then, nfter It was over we tallied about the "flu" being over and bow fortunate we were to get through with small death loss We told them we bad expected to sell this merchandise and wanted to move it and would put a price on it attractive ad came to them. Then a four-pagWhere we out an announcement. couldn't reach them thnt way we mulled It to them The firs day of the sale our receipts were $8,600 ami during the seven days we sold a little over S.'IO.lXKt worth of merchandise That Is the drawing power of that little paper. Of course, in your linger stores here it would be much larger The page ml I am holding is an announcement of the fall npetiiim. The nuiiie plate I call your attention to. I atu a greut believer in a name plate that stands out. For Instance when we have a full opening out in that little town e have live models. We have the best orchestra In town. We serve coffee, cookies und try to make It Is quite a it plenum for them. little novelty and If we hnve u fashion film, when that film Is run. we the same garments on the live seems models. That rather farfetched for a small town but we are trying It out. How fur can you go on advertising? How much can you spend? I find there is no limit even If you cut out some stuff that doesn't bring returns. On our twenty-fourtaunlversary I said to an ad man of the newspaper: "1 want to get out a good ad ; going to have an anniversary smle on a certain date, and I want to make It a good one." "Why doirt yoo inks It a good aneT" ha aald. "Well, all rlgbt show me how it la done." "Why don't you get out a spaclal edition? A 12 or 14 page paper?" "All right; how will you go about I rundy-to-wen1 e dls-plu- speech on modern merchandising and advertising und two of newspaper the men here were n,mle ,he tnlk (liftand they Invited me to be their guest here und deliver the SHine lecture, thinking It might be of some benefit to the business people of the city of Dubuque. ) mi?ht sity in sturting. so (hot you will understand how I hnppeu to be In this line of work, that I am Just an ordinary merchant and not un orator like Mr. Karr, whom you heard Inst night.

I hnve been dnlna a great deal of work with the Jobbers, manufacturers and retailers. About one third of the business of North Dukota was pMg bouses. I sent out a to I man. Doctor Carr. to Investigate. hired him because he Is running a magazine advocating "Trade at r Home." When we found housvs doing business st homt--. wa became Interested In mall order busiSeventy-twness Ip North DnWftta. r solid carloads of catalogues from house were delivered In North Dakota at that time. I hired two men and sent thera out over the state. They Interviewed merchants. I had a little sheet for them to fill out. asking Welt, I found that about advertising. 75 per cent of them didn't believe In advertising. Then I knew at once what was the trouble to a great extent. I estimated that over a million dollars was being "pent In that slate r by houses. I found that $75,000,000 were being spent In the r United stales by the houses, and thnt a million went to the state of North Dakota. To those consumers every single day came catalogues or pamphlets of some kind, and the retailers of that state absolutely not making an appeal to the consumer for their business. I went to the Jobbers and manufacturers. They didn't know whnt wus going on. It never entered their heads that they were losing 25 per cent of the business In that state. I told them: "You ought to realize that retailers are your agents and when they are gone you won't hnve nnyone to distribute your merchandise." I have been In Chicago In Marshall Field's, and Carson Plrie Scott'.". along They have been Interested thnt line. I said to these Jobbers: "1 want you to do something for the retail merchant nlong these lines. I found In talking to these men they do not understand advertising and do not believe In It. I am satisfied thnt 85 per cent of the business people In the United States. outide the Inreer cities, do not believe In It, do not use It. and do not realize the wonderful opportunities they nre Instng. I started to educate them, to Interest thorn In this work, so that when the merchant wants for his paper or his letters or circulars or pnmhlets. he will go to any of the houses nnd they will help htm. They have become Interested In It. Also the question of price has come up. To this dny a great many people figure that the setnll merchant compete with mall order cannot houses." I laid It before these men: "You must furnish the retailer merchandise at such a price he can meet He Is your mail order competition. acent. Are you going to let them clean him up or keep In business yourself?" They promised they would furnish merchandise that would meet all mail order competition. I tell the retailer If the wholesale houses don't tfve them a price that will meet mall order competition, let me know about It ; nnd In two years I have not had a single instance where the Jobber or manufacturer bus refused to meet I got away mail order competition. with the price. 1 put backbone Into the merchants. Then I started on the advertising game I talked to traveling men and got their houses to go out and sell merchants not only merchandise but advert Ising. Solving Peddlr Problem.
