A Happy New Year to All
It is with much pleasure that we extend to all our sincere
thanks; especially to the friends and patrons who hare contri-
buted so largely to the success of our business prosperity during
the past year that passed into history with the expiration of
last week. Our sincerest hope and earnest endeavor will be to
give you good values, a fair deal and honest treatment and
courteous and prompt service. And trusting that you will con-
tinue to favor us with your presence and patronage, we most
heartily extend to you the comphnents of the season, and most
earnestly wish you and yours a prosperous and happy year—
1906. Yours Kindly,
Prop. Dep't Store.

rangcments as to cash or credit

i interest in full from date on ac-
count secured that takes him six
J months or more to trade out,
which the merchant has the
benefit of from date, that is if
traders note is turned in at once
which he realizes on; and wheth-
er the union will be allowed to
install a union clerk.
| All these conditions must be
fully understood and an agree

I committees are to txist parallel
with the life of the contract, and
the lodges reserve the right to
rescind ail deals when ever they
find the contract is being violated.
Now, it is not the intention of
this union to'tear do^rn or dis-
courage home trade,- but, to the
ii the face of all this there are a
lew men, even in this land of in-
t >! igence and past masters in

M. W. MERRITT & COMPANY
Joins in .wishing all his friends and customers a Happy and
Prosperous New Year of 1906. We also thank you for the cou -
teous way in which you have treated us in making it one of the
most, prosperous years in Prague, Oklahoma. We kindly in-
vite the people of Prague and vicinity to call and make our
store your resting place and home while in Prague whether you
buy or not. Assuring you that we appreciate the past and hoping
for a continuanceof your favors. As Ever,
Yours to count on for a "Square Deal.
M. W. .flERTiTT & CO.,
P. S. There is no fear appre-
hended but what the business
men of Prague will do the fair
thing with the union, as it is only
a "square deal," a matter oi
business, not a favor to be con
fered upon a friend. Infact
friendship is not in it, only busi-
ness. Cuuld uot give it to a
brother if. his proposition was
not favorable as the best.
