Financially there are just two kinds
of men in the world those who con-
stantly figure upon the principal of
their money and those who deal with
the interest on the principal
The one kind of man throws away
ten dollars carelessly and says “What
is the difference It is only a ten dol
n fit bin gthe new lining a length of ALLOCATED TO OKLAHOMA
it should be laid on the band surface
in such a way that it fits snugly leav-
est — that is all
Yet the principal figurf is not the
principal figure in life Indeed he
counts for very little except when he
is spending that ten No one comes
to him with opportunities No one con
siders him as a possible investor in
anything good Money always passes
him quietly by
And yet this is all a simple habit of
mind The difference ' between finan
cial success and financial failure is
only a little trick of the brain
An dthe habit of figuring interest —
the habit of figuring every dollar you
spend as the interest on twenty times
that amount at five per cent is very
easily learned
Try it now in the personal things
you are going to buy If you need a
suit of clothes look through the ad-
vertising in this paper See where
you can save five dollars and then say
to yourself “I am not merely saving
five dollars but buying a suit of clothes
from this advertisement I am saving
the amount which one hundred dollars
would earn if it worked at five per
cent interest for a whole year”
That’s the thing that brings you to
your mutton That’s the thing that
makes you stop and think
Now these’ good sales are going on
all through this paper You can save
money on anything you buy Your
clothes your shoes your shirts your
household goods — all offer money-saving
opportunities in the sales
Why you can save the interest on
at least five hundred dollars if you will
only go at it right And show me the
man to whom five hundred dollars is
not a capital worth considering
Interest — that is the thing to figure
on always And the way to save the

Pawhuska Feb 16 — Mistaking each
other for holdups caused the death of
Roland McGuire son of a prominent
Pawhuska real estate man and John
Blair the owner of a feed yard at
Wynona late last night McGuire left
Pawhuska in company with Tim Leahy
of this place- and rode to Wynona
Leaving Leahy at the hotel he pro-
ceeded to a garage to get his car when
he met Blair on the way Blair had-
just taken on deposit for some of his
patrons quite a considerable slim of
money and drew his gun fearing that
McGuire intended to hold him up Mc-
Guire believeing the other to be a
highwayman also drew his weapon
and after a duel of a few seconds both
men fell over a slight embankment

YES sir we mean that same warm red and gold -tin
that smiles a welcoming “Howdy” to you in
every tobacco’ store Know what those colors mean?
The red is for the friendly warmth the mellow

the gold is where the Kentucky sunshine that ripens
good old Velvet has just sort of soaked through j

Remember what Velvet Jo
said about it?
"You’ve met canned meat and
f canned music Ever see any tinned
sunshine? Well look into any
Velvet tin"
And think this over:
We don’t have to hide Velvet’s taste or smell with
a lot of this that and the other thing Because Velvet
has naturally what pipe smokers want— real simon-
pure tobacco taste and fragrance It’s just good honest
Kentucky leaf made still more friendly and mellow by
two years’ ageing in wooden hogsheads Just good
tobacco That’s all But it’s mighty near enough for
the man who wants a pipeful of tobacco and not a box
of bon bons
The picture of a pipe on the tin needn’t keep you
from rolling a jim-dandy cigarette with Velvet
