(International} Country Storekeeper In Connecticut Says Old Days Provided More Fun At Less Cost By DOROTHY ROE Today's dial system of auto-l matic living, under which we tfet our culture, entertainment and political opinions by pushisg ; TV button, has not improved either the happiness or the wisdom of the human race, in the opinion of Elbert Jones, aged 84. He has been a country store keeper in High Ridge, Stamford, Conn., since the first Saturday in October, 1890. In his Ii2 years of merchandising, Mr. Jones has traveled the f u l l course, from the days of barter and horsc-and- \vaffon delivery to the era of - .. O ir ,--,.j c .n from his vantage point of years! ,, _ i. ,, ne say.s: I "When I first started in business $9 a week was considered good \vagcs--and it was a six-day week and a 10-hour day. Nowadays folks mke 10 times as much for half the work, but I don't think they're much better off. "Now they have cars and wash' ing machines and vacuum cleaners and refrigerators and radios and telephones and television sets --all the things to give them more time to spare. And the more time they have, the more entertainment they hove to have, and the more gadgets they buy to supply that entertaismcnt--and in the end they don't have any more fun than \vc did. / "People used to he easy to pinuse. A haynde or a square dance was all a young fellow used to need to have a whale of a good time with his girl--and it didn't cost anything. Now people seem to measure their good times by 1 what they cost--and buy every- j thing on the installment p l a n . I "The way I see it, they don't have | as much f u n , and they owe morej money." j Business By Barter j When he first bought the 1-lish! I!idgc store, business wns strictly by barter. Mr. Jones explains: ''I used to cct paid in eggs, pi^s, butter, horses and baskets. Lias-, ket-making was one of the principal businesses in these parts then, and at one time 1 had 40 basket-makers working for me. I'd lake the baskets in exchange for groceries and slock feed, and then I'd have to sell them before I could pay my bills." Back in 1890 eggs were 12 cents a dozen, butter 25 cents a pound, round steak cost 10 cents a pound and porterhouse 16 cents. His biggest sales were of flour, sugar and hay and Krain. because most of his customers raised their own meat, eggs, butler and vcge- lahlcs. Tluough the years Mr. Jones has prospered, but still likes to deliver groceries himself and slop to chat with people in friendly kitchens.
