Read The Pcst-Her-
ald Ads This Week
On account of the number of
ads contained in this issue and
because we desired to,issue the
paper before Thanksgivisg, our
news items are somewhat limit-
ed and especially so with locals.
But we feel that the information
contained in Mike Bradley's big
four page ad and in Curreathers
& McMillans page, is real'- live
news and of a kind that ''will
prove valuable to or.. read-
ers, neither should they negliect
the smaller ads which may be
found in this paper. The pro-
gressive merchant is an adver-
tising, merchant and it is only
j a question of time until all
I others will be forced out of bus-

lis all agreed to close today on
j account of Thanksgiving but no
i agreement could be reached by
