YOU notice a fine regard for appearance among the
officers from Roundsmen to Captain that's one
reason they are so keen for W-B CUT Chewing.
The pass-word among these gentlemanly fellows is 'Jf
you won't take a little chew don't take any." No need
to disfigure the face, when a nibble of rich tobacco gives
more satisfaction than a wad of ordinary stuff also less
grinding and spilling. Take a tip from the ofliccr on W-Ii.

Try Independence First
Montana elects a woman to congress the first
one to be so honored in the United States which
is a credit to Montana if the lady congressman has
the ability to make a creditable representative.
But manylpeople in Montana are not particularly
proud of the lady-elect, Jeanette Rankin. We
quote from a letter recently received, from a
resident of that state: '
"I believe in women holding- office and J
if a good sensible lad v had been elected j
it would have been all right. But Jean
ette Rankin is one of those flighty
suffragettes who is glib of tongue but
lacking in general brains. As an ex
ample I am told that when she started
out to make suffragette speeches a year
or two ago there was a meeting in her
home town at which Jeanette wras billed
to speak. When she came on the stage
her friends were amazed and disgusted
as she wore a very rich dress with a train
fourteen feet long carried by a boy. One
term of Jeanette will be all that Montana
will ever stand.''
If Jeanette is of this kind and we have much
evidence that she is, the state of Montana has
greatly injured the cause of equal suffrage by
electing her to congress. Perhaps the statement
of a certain Montana citizen was apt when he
said: "The men gave the women the ballot
thinking- that it would be made good use of. The
women turn around and elect the most hysterical
suffering suff on the range to congress, who will
be the horrible example' for years to prevent!
Jther women from being elected to the same1

Did you ever think how the government dis-1
criminates against certain patrons of its postal
service? A part of them have their mail delivered j
to them without cost but at considerable expense!
to the government. Another part receive their!
mail at the general delivery window, which re-j
quires much time in handling and sorting. Aj
lnrd part have individual boxes and their mail
reaches them with the least work on the part of
the postoihee employes. The last named class,
which pays a rental for the use of the boxes, is the
only one that directly pays for the service. This
method of the postal department is unique inas
much as it is just opposite from the usual vayj
hat public utilities and business concerns serve:
the public. Then the postal service receives most
ot its revenues in the sale of stamps from the class
that pays for being the least trouble and expense.
It is to be hoped that those of influence will
uive strength enough to prevent militarism from
being forced upon this country until the European
war is over. After that, not even the most ram
pant dividend patriot will be able to buy anv
sentiment" favorable to a large standing army
and compulsory training. The world will then
behold the horror of militarism, realize what it
really means, and have no more ot it.
Business Is Good
Our steady increase in patron
age and our faith in the future of
Independence means much to our
customers, new and old. We are
going: to make greater efforts
than ever before to please those
who patronize us and to give
them every discount that the
grocery business will allow.
