PROTECTION FROM SCHEMERS
One of the most urgent needs of this com.
munity at this particular time is some organiza
tion that will protect the business men from
being pestered daily with publicity men who
have schemes for advertising Waynesville to
the world which are usually not worth the time
they take to explain it.
Since Waynesville is so near the park they
feel that this is a good territory and a good time
t- get out booklets, road maps, and magazine
articles all paid for by local people, togethe
with various and numerous other schemes.
Last week, for example, there were two
men here trying to put over a highway guide,
which was a sheet of paper with a map of a
highway on it and advertising on the margin.
All tow ns along this route had taken space with
the exception of Waynesville, and for that reas.
on they were here to "give the town a break by
being represen ted."
One business man we know was contacted.
The price for the space was $15 cash. When
the Waynesville man showed no sign of being
interested, they said: "We'll make it 12.50
and trade out $2.50." After cutting and trying
in vain, they made the last and final offer of
in cash and $2.50 in trade.
They failed to sell the space, because they
had nothing to sell and the Waynesville man
knew it, but he was pestered and lost his time
and temper before the men were convinced that
ihey could not sell him. In the first place, if
the .-pace had been worth $15 in the beginning
it was worth it fifteen minutes later, but evi.
U ti t is' they thought not, because they dropped

would have been hard to over come.
After the crops have been sold, and there
remains a .number that can pay who have not
the -.board, feels that it has been "easy"
enough and is now forced to advertise.
William Feather in his daily article entitl
ed "A IJusinessman's Philosophy" recently gave
forth a very interesting discourse on common
He says that these common superstitions
weie prohobly deliberately invented to enforce
desirable rules of conduct.
". It has always been deemed bad luck to hang
'your- Cpat on a door knob, with the admonition
; that -someone, i;: the 'house, will die within the
year. It is bad luck to bring a hoe into the
hi-r.se. to open an umbrella in the house, to
bteak a mirror, to walk under a ladder. To
.sing before breakfast was a sign that you would
weep before dinner. Not to eat the crusts of
y- ur bread is a sign that you will go hungry
before the year is ended. To butter your bread
or. both side presages a similar famine.
It is easy to suppose that these superstition..-
were spontaneously devised by mothers of
families, to make housekeeping easier. To bring
a hoe into the house is to bring dirt in; to open
an umbrella is to endanger bricu-brac; ta
hang clothing on door-knobs is to give the place
-slovenly---appearance, and make it difficult to
open and close doors. The bread and butter
superstitions are merely rules of economy-- so
is the one -.about breaking a mirror for mirrors
are still expensive although they were once
much: more costly than now. And it's merely
common sense not to w'alk under a ladder as
something in the nature of a paint bucket is
likely to fallen your head.
So we can easily suppose how "these- supers
stitions were invented and our supposition is
probably not very far wrong. Of course, it is
not the proper thing to teach 'children such non
sense but each superstition has probably served
a worthy purpose down through the years. Per
haps something a bit less disturbing to mental
calmness and common sense can be invented to
supplant these age old admonitions. Ex.
