PRESIDENT LEWIS AXD SECRETARY GREEN OF THE UNITED MINE WORKERS ANNOUNCE THAT THEY WILL OBEY THE ORDER OF THE COURT.
By the Associated Pres*
INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 8.—The United Mine Work ] ers of America were today ordered to withdraw' the strike order under which 400,000 miners quit work on: November I. The mandate was issued by Judge A. B.| Anderson of the United States District Court after a hearing in which the union attorneys fought in vain for a chance to present arguments on the right of the miners to strike.
The union was given until November ll at 5 p. rn. to issue the order cancelling the strike. This date was selected because so many defendants were absent. The union attorneys explained the absentees must be sum-* moned by telegraph from many parts of the country to issue the cancellation.
The union attorneys announced that acting President Lewis and Secretary Green of the union would obey the court order, but that they could not speak for their fellow officials.

S.—The United Mine -tate Workers of America, through their attorney, Henry Warren, requested at the opening of the United States district court that the proceedings be postponed for a week or ten days in the hope that meanwhile the strike might be settled. The government, through C. B. Ames, Assistant Attorney General, objected and the court thereupon took up the motion to dissolve the injunction.
The government position was that the case was too important to admit delay.

LET’S SAVE THE COTTON
Considering the extraordinary price the greatest crop of cotton ever grown in Pontotoc County is now in the fields of the county. In view of the extraordinary price, the crop, if gathered and marketed, will leave Pontotoc County in the best condition financially that it has ever been in.
But the farmers can’t gather the cotton. Even if the rains should cease, the supply of available labor is not sufficient to gather the crop.
Let’s gatlter this cotton. Let’s close the schools for a few days and put every kiddie able to pull a cotton sack to picking cotton. Let s send every available laborer to the cotton fields. Let every business man who can possibly leave his business get him a cotton sack and get busy. And if it is necessary, let’s declare a holiday in Ada so that the entire population may get into the cotton fields and help the farmers in this crisis. The farmers have always helped us.

MITCHELL, S. D., Nov. 7— Street Commissioner John Doty has invented a spectacular method for bagging ducks but it is doubtful if his scheme will prove madly popular.
"Hunters simply do not care to use their heads,”- is Doty’s explanation.
The street commissioner was recently hunting near Forestburg. When he got through he returned to his automobile, which he left near a slough. Switching on his headlights. Doty began to change his shoes in front of the car.
There was a whizz, a bang, and Doty received a tremendous blow on the head. Although partly stunnea, he noticed a dark object crash against the car, and recovering his wits, he quickly investigated.
A big mallard, attracted by the lights, flew at the car but collided with Doty’s head and broke its neck.

The doctrine of business efficiency was entertainingly preached to a good-sized audience iast night at the Normal auditorium, the speaker being Mr. W. F. Brennan, expert lecturer of the National Cash Register Company, of Dayton, Ohio.
The audience was largely made up of business men and clerks, but there were people from many other walks of life, all of whom were greatly benefited as well as entertained.
"Co-operation, not cut-throat competition. is the key-note of today’s business," declared Mr. Brennan, and he showed further on in his address how “the wholesaler ana the banker are both partners of the retail merchant in these days.” He showed how by proper organization of a store the burden of the business can be shared by all the help and the owner so that all the weight need not bear down on the one mind which should be most free of care— namely the owner’s. He .emphasized at the outset the fact that in 1918 in the United States $163,019,979 had been lost through store failures. 6494 stores being involved, including as the principal bashless 1593 general stores, 1969 grocery stores, 45 clothing and furnishing stores, 296 dry goods businesses and 152 hardware stores. Little leaks for the most part had sunk them all, and the hundreds of other businesses which had failed also.
“Price cutting,” said Mr. Brennan, "is the principal cause of failures. Letting your competitor make the price is poor business. Credit is ■ important. Crediti is as important I as capital in doing business. Good ; business methods are essential to credit.”
Don’t spelt! a few dollars in advertising' and then say "advertising (doesn't pay.” Advertising does pay as attested by thousands of merchants who have become succeessful through its use. though sometimes it takes a little time for it to bring maximum returns. Make it a part of the continuous policy ot your store and you will not bedisap-pointed with results.
Select your advertising medium carefully. Its value depends, to a certain extent, upon the goods you sell and the conditions under which you sell them. Except for the small store serving a district of a large city, howe\ er, more people can be reached oftener and at less expense by newspaper ads than in any other way. The merchant who is not using them is missing an opportunity.
During his talk Mr. Brennan laid emphasis on the value of newspaper advertising to the retail merchants. He said in part: “I believe I am sate in saying that ten merchants have failed because they advertise too little, to every one that has failed because he advertised too much. Certainly hundreds of stores have remained small due to this neglect.”
Advertising is simply a way of telling possible purchasers about tile goods you have for sale. Simple 'lords and direct statements should, therefore, be used in preparing your ads. Big words and involved sentences will not be read. The purchasing public doesn’t care how well educated you are. It simply wants to know what you have‘to sell, its quality and its price.
Don’t crowd your ads. If an ad tells of one line of goods only it may catch the eye. but if it is crowded wit^. many ideas, th© chances are it will not be read. It is not the number of articles you advertise that counts, but the number of persons who come into your store to buy the goods you advertise.
Another means of advertising that is available to every merchant is the window display, explained Mr. Brennan. The hundreds of possible purchasers who pass the store window each day can be attracted to buy if the display space is proper!', used, he said.
The same principles that aw used in newspaper advertising ca > be applied in the displays. It is important to arrange the display s that the passerby will see something he wants. The best displa j shows only one kind of goods c. (Continued on Page 5.)
