does pay and man or firm to do
business at a loss. However, in
_ this case, our loss is your gain.
jM^W^en men enter into a losing

is of course honest effort or ulter-
ior motive back of it. Our mo-
tive oould not be other than hon-
est. Our purpose is to protect
the business integrity of the mer-
chants of the town of Cushing.
Our efforts are to make Cushing
a cotton market town second
to none other in Oklahoma. So
far we have sucoeeded. We
are honest with you, and have
spent our money to oonvince you
that we are with you. All we ask
is a fail consideration. This
much we promise you: Cushing
will maintain as good a market
for your products as any town

time sell you goods at competi-
tive prices. Signed,

PERSONAL AND LOCAL
Anent Road Building
Just a few words about our
good roads work, Almost every
man whom I asked donated some
work, giving two or more days.
All gave liberaly considering the
fact that so many live on Indian
leases. R, W. Bradley was on
the work every day with a team
Every one who came out to work
worked faithfully ail day. This
was no story telling picnic. S. C.
Flemming is nearly done work
on the Mascho Hill, this will be
a great help to all who use the
north road. J. S. Anderson has
done some good work on the
Mohler hill, also along his own
farm. While we did not do any
of the work quite as well a9 we
should like, yet we feel that we
have made a credible, showing
for the time spent. I hope every
one tfill resolve to do as much or
more next winter. As for my
self, I was glad to give my ten
days and I hope the people will
appreciate what we have done.
Gu<3s L-fore is getting along
nicely wi( i his contract. Let us
all work toge h r and make the
roads leading to town good. Let
our motto be, -'The most good to
the most people!—W. T. Larmer.

unscrupulous and untruthful
parties that certain Cushing mer-
