Flattery never bothers some people.

Mavor Raker was 53 years old on
Tuseday and when he pushed his way
through the crowd to the council
chambers on that day he Httl» knew
what was in store for him. When he
reached his chair at the table he per
ceived some thing? that awakened his
curiosity. A huge hoquet of flowers
rested upon the table beside a flag
draped over a mysterious package.
At the proper time Commissioner
Pier arose and presented the mayor
with a well-selected array of golf
clubs and a large bouquet of flowers
as the gift of the citv employes and

Sporadic cases of diptheria have de

ADVERTISING NOT NECESSARY?
A merchant in a nearby community
told a Mt. Scott Herald reporter the
other day that there was no business
anyway, so why should he advertise?
And that reminds us of the hen who
quit scratching because there was a
scarcity of worms. It seemed to be
a bad year for worms; the hen didn't
see any of the wriggling varmints
trying to make themselves an honest
meal for a hungry chicken, and the
hen soon began to have the appear
ance of a run-down fowl.
The owner noticed the run down
appearance, caught the hen. killed
her and threw the carcass to the
“hawgs"—and the moral is this:
“Don’t let your business get that run
down appearance or some of your
best customers might get it into their
heads that you are ready for the fin-
anc’al graveyard, and pass you up
like a pay-car passes a tramp ”
I^et’s keep advertising.
BANK NOT SAFE ANY MORE
There are two reasons why the
ladies have given up the idea of car
rying their money in their socks.
Their petticoats are so short that
there a no room at the top and their
hosiery is so thin that the nasty
porch climber can see whether the
bank has money enough in it to pay
for robbing it. Outside of that, the
banks are in good condition.
tutionr. Dr. Parrish on Wednesday
stated that there was no cause for
alarm in any of the institutions, ax
the disease is in a very mild form and
ther is no general diptheria epidemic
