Aside from the Accident of the rebellion which he took advantage of to the fullest extent nothing contributed to the Succes of the late a. T. 8tcwart More than his adherence to the system of purchasing and Selling for Cash. In All the markets of Tho world his firm secured the lowest prices and most favourably consideration. His enormous purchases and tils prompt payments combined were match less arguments with the world s Rabenu Factor sri for close prices. Attached to his name was a renown that has never been associated with any other in mercantile history. He has ten accused of harshness in Bis dealings and unnecessary severity in exacting to the fullest a tent the precise requirements of a contract but this trait had in advantages even if it car ried with it no Halo of mercy. This Man left an example and a plan Illus rated by his own career that will have a vast a fluence on our Domestic Commerce. Already we see in nearly every important tillage the Cash store or its equivalent without the actual designation and upon further Examina tion we ascertain that that class of merchant s generally the leading progressive Money making Man in his line. In Tho Large cities the same principle is of i cried with regard to merchants of a larger growth i the Large jobbing merchants with the ild Fos cloned method of buying and Selling on Long time credit prices that must necessarily " attuned to the loss in interest and the risks s giving Way to the Man of modern methods to buys and Sells for Cash. This is very Gratifying in every Way slides specially As the plan is rapidly spreading. Be oct upon the danger and uncertainties of the credit system. The manufacturer must Pur Hae of the grower the raw materials on ered to another loss. The merchant Sells to his Cus omers on credit who in turn sell on credit. Each Vendor has necessarily included in his Price a percentage for certain and probable Oss. These percentages by the con Sumer would to from Twenty five to one Hun ired per cent above Tho intrinsic value of the foods bad they been sold thro out for Cash in he basis of a reason Blo profit. It May be too it Rock a statement to make that the Commer Lal supremacy of Europe is due to its manufacturers receiving Cash for their work but it Bertaln a is a most powerful auxiliary. The Man who mortgages his crops of Cotton and tobacco while he is planting them to an Ither Man who will Advance him his living applies must expect his advancing Factor ver and above a legitimate profit � certain arc engage for the risk of the venture and actual loss of interest. Owning the planter is it is called in business the Factor generally arranges his prices on the supplies advanced o the utmost limit allowed by the drum stances. Were this same planter to begin at the Bot Tom and cultivate Only so much a his Reasonr would allow him to manage with Bis own sap Tai and buy for Cash be would soon be Lis own master. Purchasing for Cash is a pow Irful Check upon extravagance and its Infin rate la lowering prices cannot be disputed. Stewart blazed the Way and the merchant nowadays who would succeed must follow Bis path with but Little Hope of rivalling the spleen old Mark he made. Those who have most Dos Ely followed Bis methods Are those who Nave made Tho most Money and achieved the it results. The Mammoth retail houses in on Large Setles Are those that buy and sell exclusively for Cash. This principle of buying for cab and telling on the same terms enable the modern Cut store to compete Enclee fully in line hitherto deemed specific and dle Luct. The largest Cash retail store of the cities now beep snob contrasting line As druggist san Drics canned meats saddlery glassware and with their restaurants Are enabled to Supply every requirement. It was boast of Stewart that in his retail establishment to kept every thing necessary for the Wear of the Rater woman. Or. Thurber the great wholesale grocer matched that condensed statement by saying that his establishment kept everything Nec Essary for the inner Man. It remained however for the modern retail Cash store to outdo them both by combining their separate excellence. The system of Selling for Cash at a Small uniform profit if re sults in quotations in Odd figures which Are sometime Dently or intentionally carried to amusing Absurdity. For instance articles Are sometimes quoted at ninety Nln dollars and ninety nine cents lacking one. Cent of a Hundred dollars. This system of Sieven Price is not Finly developed in where the Copper Cento Are not freely employed Bat in the East the system is general and whether or not the firms using the uneven i ice really charge a Small uniform and Trade Tating percentage of profit they at i6ast wish to convey that idea. While this idea of a Small uniform profit in. Consideration of an immediate Cash payment has had marvellous growth in the retail department of Trade its acceptance by the wholes ale merchant has been slower for several Rea sons the principal being that the present sys tem of wholesaling dry goods is one which can not be revolutionized quickly without almost Complete of the individual firms Bat the inevitable change is not far Dis Tant and it accomplishment will be an 1m r Mense step Forward in Pur National Prosperity. The exponents of the dose knowledge of fatal is however. Wll that the confusion to Only Purchase of each item in it Beni i mass of articles to carefully conm#re4, \ the subject of a thorough analyst to flan. Be 1 its intrinsic value to tested by , As Well Asiu Selling qualities As a Novelty Maud herein comes the opportunities for bargains. Novelties offered to buyers Here Hurt if rope do not always real toe Tho Asp Yeti formed regarding thin and the an 1"1 numerous sales dwindle u Perks a r e at a tremendous Losa to sole importers mistakes As our such re reads. The immense Advance in importance by the modern method of doing brings the consumer and the manuf car by closer together As the retail merchant with ills immense orders Ca i buy quantities that an Ordinary wholesale merchant would Purchase ind paralyse Small Competition by the same operation. The Progress Thor Eforo is Itea Dlly in Tzoc rec ton of concentrated Magallnes Contala no All things needful for the Community Holch will alone stand Between the manufacturer and the consumer with an Avo Rago per rent age of brokerage graduated according to the amount of goods sold. In All Europe there to no establishment except Whitley s which can approach in pm nod variety combined our american wholesale bind retail houses. Napoleon s designation of the English As it lat Lon of shopkeepers seems to Roslily no Ropelato to Tho a nylons foreigner who walks rough the mate of London s streets tilled Nib Small stores and obsequious shopkeepers it any rate there is not except in one or two London houses anything in Europe approach ing the Large wholesale and Sutull houses of the jolted states. This statement does not refer if course to the Large commission Bouses of tin rental Europe which carry no stocks merely acting As buying agents. It is a Well known fact that the United state merchants seen re lower prices in european markets than any other he the Globe. Their enormous orders and prompt payment ire the causes for this and if there was be Iroff duties for our merchants to pay Tia curious spectacle would be presented of an Amer ican consumer in Yang Belfast linens cd Cape Lero than in Belfast Sheffield cutlery cheaper an in Sheffield champagnes cheaper than in Ranee Nottingham locus cheaper than in lot Tongham and a on through the list. The modern american merchant would annihilate tor the consumer the vast space which Sepa rates him from the indigenous industries of Tho orld and sell to blk a foreign article cheaper ban the poor peasant who made it could buy from his town merchant. And in the last analysis of the causes for this rou would Ond the reason to be the method of Auyung and Selling for Cash a Blob carefulness and Enterprise i it Ohleh in turn produce the most successful Waters for the work of the Wolffs labourers in to Laid of manufacture. h.
