I Have Not- Lived- in Vain
' • : -
A Direct vs. Roundabout
„?'-! :-' Marketing. V
In considering the cause of tee
"highcost of living" the metnpd
of marketing merchandise should
be looked into closely.
There ,has developed in this
Country an exceedingly expensive"
inethqd of marketing— the pro-
duct passes-from the manufact-
urer to the jobber, from the job-
ber to the wholesaler, from the
wholesaler -to the retailer, and
from the retailer to the consumer,
r The manufacturer, makes a
profit, the jobber.or wholesaler
makes a- profit, and the retailer
makes a prOfiit, so the consumer venfefj frum doing so by—prohib-
must pay_t^re.Q. .profits plus the
3gSnufaci^^'r2bM of the article!
and the cost of handling it three.:,
times. He must also pay the
"salaries and expensises of the
f traveling salesmen who sold the
. article to the jobber or wholesaler
■ n^.lTkgwise-'a similar cost for
the salesmen who sold it to the
\ retail dealei*. Certainly a round-
" .""'-"'about and expensive method
So firmly has the system be-
come'intrenched. however, and
so thoroughly are the- whole-
saler and jobbers and the retail
— dealers organized for protection-
of themselves and for attack on
■ V> any departure from their pet
VP - systerr , that any manufacturer
who dares adopt any other system
.. of marketing immediately feels
,-r; -- "the"efftcV"ef tlieiF'w rath.
5 The favorite law of the- com-
bined retailer or merchant is the
peddler's licence; that is, a- law
compelling a person who travels
. from house to house to sell- goods,
wares or merchandise to pay a
. license for the privilage of doing
so. Just why a person should
. pay a license for-^elling an ar-
ticle from1 a vehicle which he
- - drives from place th'place,. while
: the merchant can sell the same
article "from his store without
paying a license has never/been
satisfactorily explained. I -1
. A great many different kinds
.'of merchandise are now sold by
canvassers or peddlers, as some
style them; they are teas,.coffees
flavoring extracts, spices, toilet
i raking powder, soaps,
ines,.,stoves, ranges, bug-
; " - ' • gies and vehicles of various kinds,
kitcheh' utensils, tools, etc.
Hundreds of different articles of
daily use are brought right to
consumer and it is very prob-
able that these car. err are
selling merchandise which is eq-
ual to or better than that sold by
merchandise through 'the kindly
assistance of the legislature or
the city,, council:, ....
The consumer, is primarily
interested "in the problem of mar-
keting for the cost of merchan-
dise) to him .rriay be materially in-
creased. or decreased by the mar-
keting method, The interests of
all the1 people will best bffseryed
by free open, competition, with
special privileges to none, and,
with burdensome restrictions up-
on no method of sale.: The con-
sumer must ever be vigilant,, not.
only that hfe may buy where he
wishes, but also that those who
desire to sell,to him are not pre-
If I have tried to lift the "weight
.From some o'erburdened heart-
Bowed down with care and sorrow—
And helped to bear a part; ,
If I have checked the scalding tears,
And soothed and eased the pain,
And brought the smile of gladness back,
—Lhave not lived in vain. - • •• ■; ■ —
Prussian Records Confirm the Theory
That They Declinjs .at
Same Time. , ^ .....
The somewhat startling records
of decline in the Prussian birth
rate^ appear to, give additional con-
firmation to the theory that there is
some systematic-' correspondence be-
tween ' the movements of hifth rates
and of death Tates, instead of the
contrast, whieh sojne1 might expect.
The ride seems to«he- -that-where.
the birth rate-is high the death rate
is high,, and that where sanitary
'science and efficient administration
lower the death rate there is a cor-
responding decline of the birth
rate. . . ■ • - .
The death rate in Prussia in 1907
r-\v-as..-4hc. lovv('.,st"On -record,7aacL,.90
was tho tiirth rato. 'That fact might,
perhaps be regarded as- accidental or
as due to- some special and tem-
porary circumstances, " were it" not
^hoWn to he merely a part -of- a
process which has been in continuous
operation for years. "
• Thus, in 1904 the birth rate was
35.04 ; in 1905 it fell to 3-3.77; in
1906 there was a slight recovery to
34, and in 1907 there Was a further
fall to only 33.23. In the city of
Berlin in the last-named year-it "was
only "24.59, arid in every ,province- of
the. kingdom .'&xceptmg 'five, in the
extreme east arid west, the birth rate
was much below the average^""*
;: In the whole empire the year's iHr
crease of population, due to the ex-
cess of births over deaths was prob-
ably not more than, 900,000,
would have been much less than
that had it not beeh for the grati-
fying reduction of the death. rate,
wliich iri the city of Berlin was only
15.62. •. ■ •'
Physiological philosophers may
explain this correspondence between;
.bTr^h rate and death rate, if it real-
ly- SOeff exist, on. ground which will
"ript make it cause for regret; It
' may. be that some subtle but master- -
-ful-law of nature:compels this cor-
relation of processes in order to pre--
If to an aged one I've ,been
,. A comfort and a stay;
And 'borne all childish weaknesses
. With patience, day by day.
If I have led the faltering steps
To some green spot again," -
And brought a ray of sunshine there—
I have not lived in vain.
If. I have, shown" an erri- g one „ *
Some better place to fill, -
Though banished from society—
My sister woman still — .
If' I have ever tried to help
Her wipe away the stain,.
And cause a thought of good within—-
I have not lived in vain.. ...
If, & hen the children hear my voice,
With swiftly flying feet
They run, with smiling faces
My coming steps to greet,
If to all of God's dumb creatures
, . . 1 have tried to be humane.
And wrcjught some deeds ofiiyndness, then
I have not lived in vain.
