zations. She left no children, Dur-
ing her life she was noted for her
philanthropic and charitable impulses
and when her will was filed in Blair
county last week, it was found that
practically her entire fortune of
$200,090 had been bequeathed to
charitable purposes, $100,000 of
which is left to establish a fund to
build a hospital in Tyrone.
The will provides for 96 specific
bequests, among the larger ones be-

All bequests are to be paid free
of inheritance and estate taxes. The
specific bequests in the will total
$68,400 and after these bequests and
all taxes are paid it is estimated
that the residue will be over $10.-
000, which will be held by them “in
trust to use and apply the same
toward and for the purpose, with
other funds that may be raised in
the future, of the building of a hos-
pital for Tyrone, Pa.”
Frank K. Luckenbach and Wil- |
lam L. Hicks, Tyrone, were nam- |
ed as executors. |
Under the will of Harvey M
‘Gray, a fund was left t, his trustee
the income of which was to be
given to certain relatives for life, |
and after their deaths the prin-|
«cipal was to be held by the trustee
as an endowment for the mainte-
nance of a hospital in Tyrone. Mrs.
‘Gray was the last beneficiary of
this fund, which now amounts to |
Mrs, Gray, through her welfare |
work in the community, saw the!
necessity of a hospital in the com- |
munity and through her generosity
has made available such a sum as |
becomes the nucleus for the |
future needs of the community. in
the way of a hospital.
A legacy of $5,000, held in the
estate of Samuel Berlin, who died in
1909, was the first amount left for
the purpose of establishing a fund
for the building of a hospital in Ty-
rone. The income from this legacy
1s now going to a life beneficiary.
On the same day that Mrs. Gray
died in Tyrone Samuel M. Griffith
«died in Altoona, and among the be-
guests in his will were $6,000 to the
Altoona Y, M. C. A, $3,000 to the |
Presbyterian home at Hollidaysburg, |
$2,000 to the First Presbyterian!
church of Altoona, and $1,000 each |

operators their applications for re-

license year begins March 1.
“Car owners had ten weeks in
which to apply for license plates,
and most of them got in under the
wire,” said Commissioner Benjamin
‘G. Eynon. “Drivers now have four

many operators overlooked that fact.

The forest ranger and the prairie
faricer have learned that they must
fight with fire. They know that whes |
| the all-consuming forest or prairie fires
ure sweeping toward them their only |
"hope of safcty lies in the “back-fire.” |
| which threaten to wipe out the retail
| ly on the preparation and publicatior
of its bulky catalogues.
By kindling and carefully controlling
a fire of thelr own they force the big-
ger fire to burn itself out, finding no
further fuel on which to feed.
The merchants of the small cities
and towns are learning that in waging
thelr fight for existence they must
adopt the tactics of the men of the
West. The great mall order houses
of the cities are the consuming flames
merchants of the small towns unless
the latter, realizing thelr danger, take
steps to remove the menace. The re-
tall merchants, as a whole, are begin-
ning to realize that they must fight
fire with fire and that to save thew
selves they must build a “back fire.”
Advertising 1s the weapon with
which the mail order houses conduct
their warfare on the retail merchants
of the small citles and towus. The
mall order houses do their advertising
through their own catalogues and
through certain publications which are
known as mail order advertising me-
dfums. A big mall order house spends
hundreds of thousands of dollars mere:

The catalogue houses also spend |
thousands upon thousands of dollars |
in advertising in the mall order publl-
cations which look for their circula-
tion to the people of the small towns
and the rural districts. Advertising In
some of these mediums costs as much |
as from $40 to $85 for a single inch, |
yet the mall order houses find it profit
able to pay these high rates. Thelr
| business is built upon advertising and

In advertising, the local merchants
find the only weapon with which they
can beat the mail order houses at thelr |
own game. This does not mean neces-
sarily, only newspaper advertising, al-
though that is the big gun in the bat-
tery employed by the successful wer- |
chant in his battle for trade.
tising is a big word and it covers a big |
field. There is no longer to be found |
the man who does not belleve in ad- |
vertising. Every merchant believes in |
advertising of some sort. The placing |
of a display in a show window Is ad-
vertising. The only difference between
that kind of advertising and advertis- |
ing in a newspaper is that where the !
one reaches dozens the other reaches |
hundreds. Attractive window displays |
are, of course, an important adjunct of
They serve thelr pur- |
the attention of those who may be |
passing by the store. There are other
foims of advertising, such as personal
solicitation, but printed matter must
always continue to be the chief reli-
ance of merchants in attracting cus
tomers to their stores.
Advertising Begets Confidence.
The buying public has learned that
che store which takes the people Into
its confidence through its advertising
{s the one in which it may expect to
get the best bargains and the most sat-
isfactory treatment. It knows that the
store which advertises consistently and
regularly has the best and most up-to-
date stocks because this store sells its
goods more rapidly than the one which
does not advertise and, therefore, Is
not forced to carry over old stock from
one season to another. The public
knows that the store which advertises
can place lower prices on Its goods be-
cause it turns over its stock oftener
than the store which does not adver-
tise and therefore does. not have Its
capital tiled up in slow-moving mer-
The mall order house does not get
{ts business by merely letting the pub-
lic know that it has dry goods or hard-
ware or groceries or some other com-
modity to sell. It creates a demand
for its goods by placing in its catalogue
attractive pictures and detailed de-
geriptions of the articles which it has
to sell. The lure of the mall order
catalogue lies In the fact that the
merits, or alleged merits, of the mer-
chandise offered are placed before the
prospective purchaser In the most
graphic manner. The local retail mer-
chant has the same opportunity to do
this that the mail order house has and
the mail order house can. The retatl
merchant can talk to the people of his
community through his home newspa-
per and that Is something which the
mall order houses as a rule cannot do,
for the local newspapers through a
sense of loyalty to thelr communities i
and their home merchants will not ac-
cept the advertising with which the
mail order houses would flood them it
they had the opportunity.
