THE VICTORY MEDAL.
As a token of the appreciation of
the services of men who served in the
world war, our government has
awarded to each of them, the Victory
Medal. Artistically, it is an exqui-
The medal is of bronze. On its ob-
verse is the bas-relief figure of Wing-
ed Victory. On its reverse, the shield
of the United States superposed by the
words, “THE GREAT WAR FOR
CIVILIZATION,” and flanked by the
names of the allied countries which
united te crush the Boche and to
check Hun “Kultur.” :
The medal is suspended from a rib-
bon of rainbow tints, the blended col-
, ors of the Allies, and across the rib-
bon are fastened bronze clasps each
bearing the name of an operation in
which the wearer served.
But the real value of this medal is
in its significance for, by it, a man is
marked as one who came forward to
defend America in her hour of peril,
to champion civilization, and to up-
hold the laws of God Almighty.
To its owner, this medal should be
a priceless possession; to his children
and his childrens’ children it will be a
To facilitate the distribution of
these medals to those men entitled to
receive them, the War Department has
opened District Medal offices through-
out the country. In this District,
there are Victory Medal offices at:
Scranton, Pa., Postoffice building.
Harrisburg Pa., P. O. Box No. 173.
Pittsburgh, Pa., 431, 6th Ave.
METHOD OF OBTAINING THE MEDAL.
The medal may be obtained by call-
ing at any of these offices with the
discharge which is then stamped and
handed back. The application is sign-
ed and, if the medal has no battle
clasps, it will be given to the appli-
cant then and there. If the medal has
battle “clasps, the discharge is stamp-
ed and handed back, and the applica-
tion is forwarded to Philadelphia from
where the medal will be mailed direct
to the applicant.
If it is not practicable for the appli-
cant to call at an office, he may write,
requesting an application blank. This
he returns with his discharge. The
discharge will be stamped and return-
ed to the applicant, and the medal will
be sent him by mail. It is proper to
say here that this office has handled
about 13,000 discharges without the
loss of one discharge.
Should the applicant, however, not
wish to risk sending his doscharge
to a V. M. officio, he may request a
form for making a copy of discharge,
when he requests an application blank,
. which. form he may forward instead
of the original discharge.
In the case of a deceased man, the’
medal goes to his next of kin, who
should make the application. The
procedure in such cases is the same as
in the case of a living man, using,
however, a different form. It is not
necessary in such cases to forward
the discharge, instead of which may
be forwarded evidence of death, such
for example, as an official communica-
tion from the War Department, War

MANY PUT TRUST
IN THE UNKNOWN
Never Satisfied With Those
Things With Which They
INCLINED TO TAKE CHANCE
Curious Traits in Human Nature Have
Made Possible Growth and Devel-
opment of the Great Mail
(Copyright, 1917, Western Newspaper Union.)
A curious trait in human nature
makes itself apparent very frequently.
That is an inclination to trust in the
unknown rather than in that with
which one is familiar. A person is
very apt to take a chance, even though
he may know that the odds are 100 to
one against him, instead of being satis-
fied with lesser rewards about which
there is no possibility of doubt.
It is, possibly, the flaring up of the
ever-present gambling instinct »ut
there is something more in it than that.
There is in it the unexplained ten-
dency on the part of most people to
reach for the chimerical and ignore
the tangible and subst:intial thing
which is near at hand. Man is sel-
dom satisfied with those things that
are within his grasp but is reaching
always for the unattainable. Too of-
ten, he loses that which he might eas-
ily gain by blindly pursuing that which
is always just out of his reach.
Why “Con” Man Thrives.
Coupled, in a way, with his faith in
the unknown is the tendency on the
part of so many people to place con-
fidence in a stranger in preference to
one who is known and has been tried
and proven. It is this tendency which
makes possible the operations of the
“con” man, the get-rich-quick artist,
the unscrupulous promoter and the
salesman of worthless mining stocks.
The man who would not think of
trusting Bill Jones, his next-door
neighbor and fellow church member,
will confidingly turn over his life’s
savings to a stranger who unfolds a
tale of riches to be won. Bill Jones
might talk his head off in behalf of a
legitimate proposition without getting
a dollar where the slick stranger with
the worthless propositica can get thou-
it is these two tendencies which, ap-
marently, are so widely prevalent
among all classes of people that have
made possible the success of the great
iaail order houses in the big cities.
A knowledge of psychology is as im-
portant to the mail order man as a
knowledge of business practices. He
plays upon these tendencies of man
to take a chance, to trust in the un-
known rather than the known, to place
confidence in the stranger rather than
Hope to Draw Prize.
Those who buy merchandise from a
mail order house are moved partly,
whether they realize it or not, by that
trait in their nature which prompts
them to trust in the unknown rather
than in that with which they are fa-
miliar. They are hoping, it may be un-
consciously, that they will draw a prize.
They do not know what they will get,
for it is impossible for one to know
what he is going to get when he or-
ders merchandise from a picture and
a hizhly colored description in a cata-
logue. He is taking a chance on the
Buying merchandise from the local
merchant, on the other hand, contains
none of these elements of chance that
enter into the dealings with the mail
order house. When one buys a stove
from the hardware store in his home
town, he may get none of the thrills
that come from taking a chance but
he will get a stove that will last longer
and keep him warmer than the one
that he might get from the mail order
house and to tie average individual,
these things are likely to be more im-
portant than the thrills.
Using Your Eyes.
When you buy from the local mer-
chant you see the thing that you are
buying, you inspect it carefully, ex-
amine the workmanship and the qual-
ity of the material of which it is made
and in many cases you have the privi-
iege of testing it before paying for it.
You have not only your own eyes and
knowledge of values to rely upon, but
vou have the advantage of the advice
of the merchant who has an expert
knowledge of the merchandise which
he is selling and who, in 99 cases out
of 100, can be relied upon to tell the
truth about it. Then you have the
guarantee that is backed not only by
the retail merchant, but in many cases
by the manufacturer. If the article
which you buy does not prove satisfac-
tory after it is given a fair test, you
can take it back to the store where
you bought it, in most cases, and get
vour money back. The retailer may
get his money back from the manu-
facturer but if he doesn’t, he stands
the loss. I
Why a person will place his confi-
dence in a stranger rather than a
friend or will trust in the unknown
rather than in that which is tangible,
is something that is hard te under-
stand. Even the mail order house does
not pretend to know why it is so but
it accepts conditions as it finds them
and makes the most of the oppor-
tunities that they offer.
