UTing On Other Peoples Money.
How many people in Ihii com
munity are living on their own
If the question was put to eacti
person individually he unquest
ionably would answer that he is
livimi on his own funds. And he
doubtless would be entirely sin-1
cere in his statement.
But are we really living on our
own money I
Let's dig down under the sur
face and see what we find.
For the Sake of argument we
will assume that you are running
an account with the grocer, and
the butcher, and possibly other
You pay, of course, but perhaps
you make settlement only every I
sixty or ninety-dsys. Some even
pay their bill only twice a year.
Now was it your money that
paid tbe wholeaaler for the goods
you are using and for which you
have not paid, or was it the
And if it wss the merchant's,
and you have not paid him, is it
your monby you are living on un-l
til settlement day, or is it his!
We contend that fully one
half .the people are living from
day to dry nn other people s I
- money, and by doing so tbey are
themselves directly contributing
to the present high cost of living.
Now control your rising anger
for a moment, and We will hum
bly endeavor to show you why
you are keeping "prices up.
The average mercantile stock
costs several thousands of dollars,
and it must be paid for in cash or
the merchant must obtain a line
of credit from the wholesaler,
And when he buys his goods on
credit he pays a higher price for
In turn you buy your goods
from the merchant on credit, and
be inself defense must (add still an
additional "Safety" profit. In
other whrds. he must charge more
than a cash price in order to pro
tect himself from the certainty of
loss consequent uoon slow collec
tions, bad debts and other annoy
Thus two "Safety" profit* are
added to the original selling prices
of the article.
Do you see how it works?how
the price is boosted!
If every customer paid spot cash
for his goods the merchant in turn
could do the same with the whole
saler, thereby securing from the
latter a discount for cash of possi
bly 5 to 7i per cent.
And then the merchant himself
would not be required to add the
"Safety profit" to his goods,which
would mean another substantial
reduction in the price Of the article
and all because of the simple ex
pediency of handling the cash over
Now doesn't it look as though
this practice of living on other
people's money is costing us con
siderably more than we are justi
ed in paying for such a doubtful

merchant made you a flat offer of

Doesn't it appear to be to the
advantage of everybody in this
community to wipfe out the bane

Dr. R. T. Yaon to Leave Moreditb
Meredith College is to lose Dr.
R. T. Vann as its president. He
has given out the statement that
he had tendered, his resignation in
order to accept the position of the
secretary of the Board of Educa
tion recently created by the Baptist
Dr. Venn's resignation is not to
become effective till the close of
the present session of Meredith
College. At an early date there
will be held a meeting of the board
of trustees of the college to take
up the matter of a successor to Dr.
Vapn. Asked last night if. he
knew of ar.y one in view as pre
sident of the institttion Dr. Vann
said that be knew of none.
That Dr. Vann is to leave
Meredith College will be a source
Of regret to all the friends of that
great Baptist college for the educa
tion of young women. Dr. Vann
has been an educator' for many
years. For fifteen years he has
been president yt Meredith Col
lege, and that institution has
grown and flourished under his
administration, being a power for
good in its work and influence.
Raleigh will regret that he will be
taken from this city, as bis new
position will take him to Durham.
As secretary of the new board
Dr. Vann will be its executive
head. His duties wilt have to do
with the correlating of the work
of the Baptist high schools and
colleges of the State, a position of
the greatest importance in the
educational work of the Baptists
of the State. That the board has
made a wise choioe is the opinion
of those who know of the work to
be done and the qualifications of
Dr. Vann. He is in close touch
with the Baptists of the State and
he will be a tower of strength to
the board which as one its duties
is to have charge of the collection
of funds for the four Baptist in
stitutions of the State, with
charga also of the iqatter of minis
