The good housewife gets the meal
dresses the children, sweeps, bakes,
mends, does the washing, and when
the shades of evening gather she finds
that human possibilities and endur-
ance have reached the limit. The
banker, after the morning meal, goes
to the counting room, delves in facts
and figures all day, and when he goes
home it is often with a feeling akin
to nervous prostration. The doctor,
dentist, dry goods man. grocer,news-
paper man, implement dealer, drug-
gist—all these, after displaying a lib-
eral amount of Roosevelt strenuosity
all day and many times until iong af-
ter the bats have had their frolic and
gone to roost —well, they feel as
though life, at the very, best is made
up of toil.
The advertising merchant is the
one who does the business in thesj
days of push and enterprise. There
are more nt-wspaper readers today
than ever before in the history of the
world. The newspaper places your
business under the eyes of the buyer.
He sees what he wants, and, knowing
whereto find it, looks up the wide-
awake merchant who asked him to
come and see him. Success in these
days of sharp competition rails fcr
eternal vigilance. You can't keep a
The Stroud Journal changed pro-
prietors ' last week and is now con-
ducted by Messrs. Qualls & Bell
late of Kansas. It will remain Dem-
ocratic in politics.
Burn down your towns and cities
and they will spring up again as if
by magic ; but destroy our farms and
the grass will grow in the streets of
every city in the land.—W. J. Bry-
"Set a thief to catch a thief," is
the way the old saw reads, and it
has just been verified in the Penn-
sylvania penitentiary where three
ex-bank cashiers, now "doing time,"
were set to auditing the institution's
bcoks and have uncovered a shortage
A league to promote refinement
among young men has been organiz
ed by a number of young girls of
Morocco, Ind. Among other things,
the girls assert, that the failure of a
man to take the home paper, is an
evidence of a lack of intelligence and
that he will be too stingy to provide
for a family and educate his children
A car load of chickens was shipped
from Chandler this week. Some Kan-
sas City dealer sent men out to con-
tract with the farmers for chickens at
8c a pound, delivered at the depot at
Chandler. At the time of these sales
the local dealers were paying 9c. A
word to the wise.—Chandler News.
Yes, and at the same time of these
sales Carney dealers were paying
10c. The wise will take notice.
Old Wheat Near Gone.
Wichita, Kan., March 26.—In the
opinion of more than sixty millers
from'Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma
ind Missouri,meeting here Thursday,
not five per cent o? the old wheat crop
is still to be marketed.
Fear is expressed by all of them

their individual stocks stored, to get

Mail Order Houses.
Lincoln county people who are
patrons of the metropolitan mail order
houses may find food for thought in
the following, written by Will J.
Hayner, publisher of The Bulletin,
at Borley, Idiho.
When the mail order house sends
a mail order catalogue to your house
draw an ^asy chair to the table where
light will shine full upon its pages
and put on your glasses that no bar-
gain may escape your eye. What a
wonderful book it if., to be sure;
wonderful for what it does not con-
tain as well as what it does. We
miss some thing which we would be
glad to see. Where is the offer to
pay cash or exchange goods for your
wheat, oats, corn, potatoes, butter,
eggs, or hay? How much do they
pay for cattle, sheep and hogs, f. o.
b , at the depot? How much tax
will they pay to support your s hools
and educate your children, for im-
proving roads and bridges, the sup-
port of the poor of the county, for
the expense of running the business
of the town, county and state? On
what page is the offer to contribute
money to the church or accept water
certificates in exchange for goods.
What line of credit will they extend
to you when your crops are poor and
your money is gone, when through
illness or misfortune you are not able
to send "cash with order" for your
clothing, farm tools and other goods?
Wnere is their offer to contribute to
your Christmas entertainments. In
brief, will they do anyth ng to pro-
vide a ma.ket for what you have to
sell, and thereby keep up the value
of your estate? Will they do any-
thing for social, church, school or
government support, or do thev tike
your dollars out of the community
with no return except the inferior
goods you buy? Every citizen who
is interested in the growth and de-
velopment of his town should think
twice before sending cash ou* of his
community to a mail order house.

Beauties of The Easter Hat.
The Easter hat is a thing of beauty.
The turned-down brims, the delicate
tints of the flowered toques, the at-
tractive hand-sewn straws used for
both small and wide-brimmed hats
are designed to enhance the softness
of the eye and to add to the loveli-
ness of the face. Owing to windy
spring days the large-crowned toques
fitting well down on the head, are the
favorites for general wear.
Wide brims, with extremely big
crowns are equally smart and will
be much worn as the season progress-
es. The width of the brim depends
upon the youth and taste of the wear-
er. Ribbon, flowers and the various
new feathers and fancy quills are
used for the trimming. Those who
like extremes will find many becoming
styles, while those of conservative
tastes can be equally suited and yet
be in the style.—The April New Idea
WE DON'T MAKE IT UPON
We don't skin you on $9.00 worth of other goods
and then put in 20 pounds of sugar for another dollar
to make you think we are IT,
We don't buy cheap Pictures, Mirrors, Brass Jew-
elry, etc., to give away as premiums and then raise
the price on our goods in order to double the money
paid out for these trashy premiums.
We don't follow you all over town and tell you
we pay more for eggs than others, and then beat you
out of a cent a dozen when we get you in our store.
We can't quote prices in this space, but out prices
on Flour, Sugar, etc., are same as last week.
When you come to town to sell your produce or buy
goods, don't let anyone who comes to you on the
streets work a confidence game on you, but come in
and get our prices.
O- A, McCOWN.
