It seems to me that
the effect of wealth, how-
ever great in individ-
uals, provided it be ac-
quired on equal terms of
competition, that is to
say, without the favor,
connivance or discrim-
ination of government,
or the aid of gtatutea,
cannot be pemiciooa to Republican institutions, but on the contrary tends
to the healthy activity, welfare and happiness at the community, and hem*
to the perpetuity of such institutions.
This it President Roosevelt'* "square deal," and it all that anyone
wants unless he prefer* paternal government or the doing away with all
competition and ambition, the mother of progress, by *Ute socialism.
There it no objection to or dread of honestly acquired wealth in thit
There i* no danger of the contention of private property in this
country anv more than in England. But the acquisition of private prop-
,rty by the diahonest use of public franchises and the aid of cunning stat-
ute* • a tery different thing. I i* more than a menao* to our Republican
Institutions; it is fraught with their datruction if .offered to continue;
the moral odium of it would in the end debase us all, and no debased peo
ol. can in the nature of thin*, remain a free, .elf-governing people.

We are always glad to help the newly wedded
on their start in life by making reduced prices
on housekeeping outfits. We have no stereo-
typed combinations, as experience has taught
us people are better satisfied to make their own
selections in every detail.
So we say, "pick what your fancy dictates
for parlor, dining room, hall, bedroom and
kitchen." Then we make a liberal discount on
the total amount-often enough to defray the
expenses of the honey-moon trip. In addition
to our liberal discount we will give FREE for
a short time only, with every outfit of $150.00
or more, a handsome NEW HOME SEWING
MACHINE, Drop Head, Ball Bearing, latest
improved pattern, just like cut.
Our stock contains the latest styles in all lines.
We'll be glad to show them to you any day.
