Prisoners who have established credit
"until more money is sent from Ger-

Certain brands of German wares

Jiiont erecting additional huts. For
this labor they are paid by the British

blers operate a shoe repairing Bhop.
This repair work is free. The British
government furnishes the leather and
pays the cobblers. An eight-chair bar-

A hospital fully otaf.'cd by the

The patient's story was partially
corroborated by the physician in

British gas is not so deadly.

Most folks who keep abreast of the
times read advertisements. We make
this statement not as a guess but as
a fact well known and easily proved
Eve.yone should read them and while
there are some advertisers still who
are given to extravagant statements
your permanent business roan who i3
a fixture in your town will tell you the
truth. The big mail order lionse or
the city store which has an immense
field to draw from can twist the truth
misrepresent its goods and get away
with it" because they have a large
field and can constantly find new cus
tomers; but your home business man
who has restricted trado territory can
not afford to misrepresent sell you
Bhoddy goods overcharge you or fail
to live up to his advertising because
he must sell to the same people over
and over again.
While statistics gathered recently
on last year's business shows a grati
fytng increase in all lines of business
all over the country which is due to
advertising In a measure it also
shows an increase in cash business
and a decrease in bad bills. This
shows that while advertising has
forced the buying it has also educated
the public as to values prices and
As your merchant and he will tell
you that the buying public city and
country knows about as much about
cost quality competition and price as
the merchant does himself and that
the time has parsed w!:cn the old
saying that there are "tricks in all
trades" will apply to merchandising.
Along that line let us say that the
sensible buyer of staples in clothing
ladies' ready-to-wear goods under-
wear dry goods and hosiery will do
exceptionally well to buy as heavily
as he can possibly afford now for fu-
ture use for the very reason that all
grades of textile goods have been ad-
vancing and will continn to advance
in price steadily as the market eats
up the present supply.
All goods which are in fast perfect
colors are dyed with dye-stuffs made
in Germany and that country has kt'pt
the secret of the making of those
dyes and will continue to do so. The
making of permanent and beautiful
colors is one of the old-world secrets
which the United States has never
been able to obtain.
Also the fine linens bleached and
unbleached from Ireland and Scotland
are among the articles not obtainable
owing to the European war. The
yarns worsteds and silk lisle made
in this country but colored with for-
eign dye-stuffs are advancing due to
the fact that the coloring which
formerly cost $190 per barrel now
brings ?!)00 and is scarcely obtainable
The same applies to Damascus
Sheffield and Swedish steel and to
The garment factories must soon
put out overalls and jumpers at $2.00
that formerly sold for $1.00 owing to
the lack of blue dyes and are making
more browns stripes and graysi than
So we say watch the ads take ad
vantage of sale prices on staples for
your merchants will have to pay more
at wholesale iii the futur timii lliuy
are selling for at retail now and as
the styles in women's coatn and suits
men's clothing and furnishings dress
goods from silk to ginghams will be
about the same next year as now you
will do well to buy for future use.

WASHINGTON Jan. 12. Traveling

Joke especially for American diplo-
matic agents at their present rate of

TODAY'S ODDEST STORY.
CLEVELAND Jan. 12. Al-
though clad only in one-piece
jumper suits and without
shoes hats coats or stockings
ten gypsy children spending the
winter with their parents
James Western and his wife In
the suburbs are healthy and
enjoying life. The children
play in the snow and do not
mind the freezing weather.
The family lives in two big
tents and a wagon. There are
stoves in the tents and the floor
is covered with straw. George
one of the boys was asked if
he was cold.
"Cold?" he repeated watch-
ing his toes tamp the snow.
"Naw!" And he wiggled 'em
to prove it.
tPocasset according to Connnis
sioner W. A. Bryant stands head and
shoulders above any other town of
double its size in Oklahoma. Mr
Bryant states he will not qualify this
statement in any manner shape nor
form but will adhere to its every de
tail without fear of successful contra-
diction. Oilier towns Mr. Bryant says
may boast of oil. Oil Pocasset hasn't
any oil and does not need it for the
simple reason that the bird ol pros
perity roosts on the masthead of that
little city and feeds from the products
grown from the soil and not from
those pumped from the innermost re-
cessos of Pocasset's earth.
umer towns may boast of more
bootleggers and of more wealth ac
quired through the sale of illicit and
contraband goods but again Pocas-
set does not need anything of this
kind to make it the town it is says
Still other towns may boast of fall-
ing into the limelight throught the
machinations of multitudes of evil
doers and yet again Pocasset neeos
not nor wants such notoriety in order
to he able to stand where it does.
"We raise more corn and wheat and
our farmers make more clear money"
said Mr. Bryant in speaking on his
favorite subject "than is the case in
any other section of even Graay
county. Our people are all prosperous
and are all law-abiding. One time we
had a couple of misguided citizens
blow into Pocasset and start In selling
hurrah water- and before they had
disposed of more than six quarts and
seven fights our local officer had them
grabbed our local justice had them
sentenced and ttiey were turned over
to the county Bheriff in order that he
might afford them an opportunity of
repenting while serving out nice little
"Another time a wandering stranger
permitted the erroneous idea to per-
meate his knowledge box that he
could find easy pickings in Pocasset
and with that end in view he blew in
with eighteen dollars and a deck of
marked cards in his clothes. Again
disregard of 'the law and order and
the superiority of Pocasset's citizens
were not taken into consideration and
again the fracture of the law was punished.
"At still another time a couple of
our misguided younger element at
tempted to settle a dispute with fists
and skulls and again the supremacy
of the law was upheld before the
would-be bad men got well started on
their way toward being bad.
"So Pocasset goes on in the even
tenor of her way content to bo and
remain possessed of the most enviable
reputation for cbmbined goodness and
prosperity of -any; town of double its
size in Oklahoma.
"We raise wheat and corn and cot
ton and alfalfa and hogs and bull year
lings lots of each and all of these"
said Mr. Bryant by way of conclusion
"We raise all this truck and no hallo-
hi Jan. and we invest our money so ac
quired in mora of the same articles
along with a few railroad and county
and township and government bonds
and just get up and hustle to keep Po
casset prosperous and clean."

YOUNG MAN BEHIND SOCIAL
THRONE IN WASHINGTON.
By United Press.
WASHINGTON Jan. 12. Warren
S. Young. Ever hear of him? He's
the "man behind the throne" in Wash
ington. About GO wearing a comfort-
able old black working coat he is the
man who decides who shall and Bhall
not attend affairs of state in the White
House. He knows all the high brows
the elite the old families and the
climbers in Washington and how to
treat them. His is the order upon
which invitations are extended to all
guests of the executive mansion and
his is the order which excludes hun
dreds. His is the task of deciding
with whom to place the Greek minis
ter at the coming diplomatic dinners.
There is one dinner for the allies and
one for the central powers. Young

ence was sore perplexed.
