BANK WITH OS
State Bank of Commerce
In about two months experts
acree that this stwte as well as
every other part of the union
will be again under the influence
of the influenza which scourged
the country last fall.
From now until the influenza
comes, is behooves every citizen
to guard himself as far as pos-
sible. There are many ways in
wrhich the individual can keep
this epidemic as light as possible.
Personal hygiene is best of all.
Keep your bod}', your teeth, all
parts of you clean as possible.
Keep your clothing fresh and
clean If you are ill consult a
doctor at once. Don't let any-,
thing go to far. Don't be in a
weakened condition when the
j(u germ get into the air.
Make it a determination with
you to keep your home clean.
Clean the yard thoroughly.Don't
let fruit rinds, barn debris or
other art ides which breed flies
nosquitos and oth< r germ bearers
be around your pla Eliminnte
all unnecessary puddles or pools
Eat lightly and of well-
balanced foods. Keep yourself in
spic and span condition and keep
your home, grounds, street and
city in the same shape. These
may be just the things that will
save your life this fall and winter.

State Health Commissioner.

Economy is the lesson we must all learn,
but economy doesn't mean DOING WITHOUT.
THE GREATEST ECONOMY IS IN BUYING
Therefore buy now, donot wait, as prices
are going higher every day and it will not pay
you to wait. Many are looking for a drop in
prices but we are afraid they will look in vain.

BAD FIRE AT KNOWLES
GARRAGE AND STORE
Knowles suffered a lose by fire
Tuesday night in which the
Mar garrage and a two story
store building with lodge hall
above were intirely distroyed.
Fearing that the wind would
shift and taken the whole street
they sent a call to GateJ
which was responded to by a
[number of our ;>eople going over
I in their automobiles. Fortu-
Inately the wind did not change
so the fire was confined to the
I two buildings mentioned. Eight,
automobiles were burned and as
the fire ooeured in the middle of
the night nothing was saved.
We understand there was no in-

The attendance in the after-
noon was fine for the first num-
ber and the evening saw a full
house. Every one seemed to en-
joy the prelude after which they
were delightfully entertained
by Miss Rena Gilman.

is an important part of
the care of your car. There are
few mechanisms more delicate
than the engine— more respon-
sive to proper attention.
A distrust of the men to
whom he must trust his car often
leads the motorist to neglect
necessary overhauling. It is not
so with our patrons. Their con-
fidence in us is a matter of course.
It is never abused.
Everything needed is done.
Nothing unnecessary is done.
Whatever is done is done skill-
fully and promptly. The result
is satisfaction to you.
We welcome any job—any
investigation of either our meth-
ods or our prices.

OIL MEETING LAST SAT.
Although the meeting was a
very important one—only a very
Four or five more subscribed
$700. Everyone seemed imphatic
that the dirilling should continue
but a more liberal financial re-
sponce must be givon.
Parties from Lipscomb, Tens
were present and took $200 00
worth of stock in addition to
$500 already subscribed. These
gentlemen were quite confident
that if we could raise <*2000 they
could promise a simular amount.
If $1000 in addition to the
amount raised at the meeting
can be secured, work will be re-,
sumed at once—but this must be |
done this week.
If we expect Ashland to wait any
longer we will have to get busy.
I am willing to stay with the
Gate Co. and do everything in
my power to keep the outfit here
and try and get aid—but if the
people around here are ready to
call it off I sure am. There was
more men on the streets visiting
than were the meeting—this is
all wrong, Men and I give you a
last warning, you have got to
get busy and take an interest
rifcht now or we've got to give up
to the outfit.- I'll stay with you
but you've got to back the thing
up better than you are. It's not
a square deal not to be willing to
give a few minutes to attend the
