Rubber Goods Without Faults
Such rubber goods are on the market and we have them. The reason so
many poor rubber goods are sold is because dealers will not pay the price
for the good kind. We are willing to sacrifice a part of our profits to a
good cause. The incrtasing demand we are haying for rubber goods
proves to us that the public appreciates the superior quality of our goods.

POWER LEAGUE ORGANIZED
The Garvin County Power
League, a new organization,
was started at the city hali
Tuesday night. The call was
made by J. S. P. Simpson, and
the hall was packed to over-
flowing. It. E. Carter, of Klon-
d\ ke, was elected chairman and
Walter Kelley, of McCarty,
secretary. The object of the j
organizaiiou is to combat the j
systematic fight that is being j
made against accepting the |
weights of the county scales on
weighing farm products. If (
the spirit manifested by the!
crowd is any indication it
means a "sure null"' fight.
