After the .'to einpiv hoses and mie
box lid bail netted him kS.'id fnmi the
broke and destitute crowd, he saw his
ability as a salesman was greater than
he had anticipated, so he 'brought out
several alarm locks,, worth about $1
at any store, and proceeded to offer
them fwr-$.r each. He fmind that, he
only, had two clocks left and said he
would sell them and the remainder
of his valuable bargain merchandise
only to those that had previously
bought the empty boxes, l ie Sold the
two clocks for and then placet! the
$5 bac k into the 'clocks an I handed
them out to the two buyers. At this
stage, of the game his audience, and
especially those that had invested in
the empty boxes were sure that now
was the time to invest $5 more into
the "king of salesmen's" wares and
clean up, thus making the Pied Piper
the goat of the deal, but the king of
salesmen had been in the game longer
than his audience so he was prepared
for anything that might happen.
Having sold his entire stocK of alat-m
clocks which consisted of two, lie sub
stituted a fountain pen,- pencil and
small pocket knife set, all made of a
bone material and placed in a hand
some ,.gold-bro.e paper box with it
guarantee a foot .Square and a $10
tag on the inside,
As he did not have any dher So
item to sell he cut the price of the $10
sets to So.
His customirs Were now on pins,
afraid that his supply of these sets
would be exhausted leforc they Could
persuade him .'to accept their So for
the outfit. He ignored all on-eomers
except those having . the 'empty ?1
boxes, and as there were originally
'M of these but he confined his sales
to them..: :
After a little talk about what line
merchandise the pen, pencil and knife
sets were, he began to gather in the
"fives". In each box. he placed the
money, but was careful not to give out
the box until he had .sold 11 of them.
After; the fourteenth sale, he question
ed', each -purchaser- and had them state
that they were satisfied with their
purcha:-e. Many were not, but weie
afraid to., say no. Ho asked one man

were well dressed, and if the pantry
was full of food and his barn had bay

positive that he could spare the money.
The man assured the salesman that he

Throngs gathered in groups and
talked the whole affair over, which all
happened in less than three hours,
and about awo and a half hours were

In about an hour few could be found
who would admit that they bad made
anv investment with the "king."

Monday aionrn. it was hard to find
..imei- who would admit that he had
participated in the "king's" merchan
dise, and when one such Inner was
found, it wa- a sore spot to mention
Sat uiday's affair.
It was found that ihcre was no
charge that could have been made
against the man.
About the only thing worthwhile in
tin' "king's" appearance here was the
fact that he brought forth some money
of the live and ten dollar variety that
to most people in Haywood county
was long extinct species.
From a general .observation, the
same stunt will not go over with such
a "bung" any time soon in Waynes
ville, nor had anyone better attempt
such a piank -but it cost SlfiO tit find
out it doesn't pay -to fool with the,
"kink of salesmen,"
