Did you ever think of the
iufluence of clothes on char-
acter? If not, think now.
You know how much bet-
ter a man feels when h® is
well (treated; more "fit," bet-
ter able, efficient, confident.
Clothes have been, many
times, a help—or a hindrance
—to good fortune.
Consider, then, the real
damage done by the "mercer-
ized cotton'' adulteration in
'clothing fabrics; its a distinct
/lowering of efficiency; it in-
^'vites, by apparent merit, a
tolerance of aotual inferocity
Everybody knows that all-
/.• wool is the beat; the only re-
: liable, honest fabric for mens
clothes. The mao who con-
sents to wear the "meroerited
cotton'' mixture confesses to
lower standard; he's satisfied
with less than the best.
We sell Hart Sohsffner &
Marx clothes because they're
all-wool; and theres no donbt
about it. Their name is a
guaranty of it; such clothes

"Where Medicine is Purity''
B. F. CULLEY, Prop.
With all the simplicity and
ignorance of a geezer who had
been born and bred in the efete
east, we took a trip Sunday
around through the rural dis-
tricts with the avowed Intention,
and the same we mentioned to
our wife, of finding or manufac-
turing material with which to
give our readers a clear and
concise idea of the country by
which, they are surrounded.
We were clad in nothing except
our ignorance of .the prophecy
of Prof. Hicks and a light sum-
mer suit of clothes. After top
ping the hill to the east we
struck a decided down grade
and ran up against a farmer
who had a few children and a
celler filled with all which makes
life worth living. He also had a
wife. He insisted upon us fill
ir.gour pockets with some of the
finest apples we have had the
fortune to eat since we have
been in the Territory.
Shortly after this happy event
we found ourselves in the fire
limits, completely surrounded
oy fire, and on this occasion we
did yeoman service for a short
whi'e helping fight the fire, but
finally concluded that we had
worked enough in the short tirn
ber country and made tracks for
the long grass country. Here
after a few trips around a couple
of sections of land, we annexed a
buggy and team and the Indian
driver took us within a mile and
a half of a small but very delapi-
dated town yclept Centralia, we
suppose on account of ita being
the center of nowhere. We ar
rived there at 7:30 p.m. and when
we awoke it was impossible to
see the town-for the snow and
houses. We only saw half a doe-
en people, four or five at the ho-
tel, and one at the printing office
besides the proprietor, we think
possibly that there are more
people there, but do not know.
It is a good town to keep away
Tuesday morning, we, with a
bribe of a United States silver
dollar, induCecfthe \nan who pi-
lots the mail hack between Cen-
tralia and Vinita to allow us room
in his hack, and at 12 m- were
eating our dinner at arestauarnt
in that town. With a great deal
of persuasiveness, for which we
ars noted on occasions of this
kind, and more silver we arrived
here at 10 o'clock, readyland anx-
ious to go to woak, but were still
too cold and aa the boys must
have copy, this ia the product of
a frosen brain. .
The next time we go on a trip
of this kind, we will stay at

of the library worldliness soon 1
grasps the occupants of any
home. The avenge man who
keeps clean inside and outside
who looks at the flowers and not
the dust, who reads the bible
and loves his wife and baby is
the best citizen. He is worth
more to the community that the
individual who has a mansion and
a library and stocks and bonds

A subscriber once received a
dun through the postoffice and it
made him mad. He went to see
tne editor about in, and the edi-
tor showed him a few duns of
his own—one for paper, one for
[type, one fuel and several others
"I did'nt get mad when these
came because I knew that all 1
has to do was to ask several re-
liable gentlemen like you to come
and help ine out, and then 1
could settle all of them.' When
the subscriber saw how it was
he relented, paid up, and renew-
ed for another year.

If the road you are traveling
is the only true road to heaven,
don't you often stop and feel
sorry for the many good people
who are going to be sidetracked?
And did it ever enter your head
that there was a possibility that
other good people were as liable
to be right as you, yourself? No
two blades of grass are exactly
alike, and no two human minds
are cast on exactly the same
mold. You maybe wrong and
still be honest in your belief.
The same thing may be true of
the other fellow. The man who
assumes the task of being his
brother's keeper should make
pretty sare that he has a reason-
ably straight line on the situa-
