Funny, Isn’t It?
Isn't it funny that a man who
thinks he is a business man will
get up in the morning from a
newspaper advertised mattress,
shave with an advertised razor
and put on advertised underwear,
advertised shirt, collar, tie and
shoes, seats himself at the table
and eat advertised breakfast food,
drink advertised coffee, put on an
advertised hat, light an advertised
cigarette, ride to his place of bus
iness in an advertised car, seat
himself at an advertised desk in
an advertised chair, then turn
down a newspaper advertising
solicitor on the grounds that ad-
Skip Reed of Oklahoma City is

lives and friends.
Yea, Verily; Thou Art
Speaking the Truth!
Ferrell & McAtee
A corporation composed ol
some of the leading and most sue
cessful business men in the U. S.,
in offering for sale a block ol
stock in order to finance an ex-
tensive advertising campaign for
their product, gives the public
“Day after day you see the vast
amount of advertising carried in
the newspapers, the magazines,
and in periodicals of all kinds.
Your own good iudgment tells
you that advertising is profitable,
otherwise the best business men
of the country would not continue
When a newspaper publisher
advises a business man to spend
money in advertising, he is giving
him the kind of adyice that the
experience of all big advertisers
has shown to hqgprofitable when
followed. The Times commends
the above quotation to those who
want to increase their business
in this trade territory.
It seems that there is some-
thing wrong, sure enough. No
day current has been put on by
the light plant since Wednesday
of last week, with the exception
of a few hours Saturday after-
noon. The night runs have been
shortened considerably, and with
what coal that has been donated
by private citizens, they were en-
abled to run Monday night. A
car of coal, consigned to the city;
has been standing on the track
for several days, but due to the
fact that the council says it has
no money with which to pay for
it, and so far have been unable
to find any one who will furnish
it, they are unable to receive it.
The Electric Theatre, one of the
most progressive picture shows
in the entire southwest, closed
out their entire line of confec
tioneries Monday, cancelled the-r
picture contracts, sent the paper
back,closed the house and unless
lights are restoredatonce willquit
business. Both barber shops
are forced to do without the use
of their electrical clippers, the
drug stores without their electric
mixers, the garages and black-
smith shops without their motors
the housewives of the town with
out their electrical irons and
washing machines,every business
house and residence in town i
using lamps or candles for light,
and last, but not least,The Times
is deprived of the use of its lino-
type, the highest priced piece of
electrical equipment in the city
We understand from a reliable
source that the Town of Gotebo
desires to take electricity from
Mountain View’s plant, they to
build a high line to the end ol
West Main street. It is said that
their plant is worn out and they
had rather do this than buy a
new plant. This would mean an
added revenue of $300 to $400
month, would enable the plan
to give 24 hour service, would
pay all operating cost, and pay a
handsome dividend in addition.
The council made a trip to Ho
bart Saturday, seeking legal ad-
vice concerning the matter. They
met with no encouragement, how
ever, from the district judge or
county attorney. Mayor Mason
returned to Hobart Monday af-
ternoon on the same business.
The old city council were up
against the same situation, but by
arranging for private money,
they were enabled to keep the
ight plant going,’ and the city
warrants at par. We hope the
new council can do the same—
and that at once.
If they have any statement to
make for publication, we will be
glad to print it next week.
