In regard to heating tho HI. Johns
alvo but it Is duo to tho conBump
tlon of current nnd up to this time
there has been no heater Invented for
street car use which may be consid
crcd reasonably economical for heat
lug purposes. It is this particular
point which effects the St. Johns
lino as It Is a long lino nnd tho loss
of power in transmission, transform
atlon and distribution, is so great
that it would not bo poBslblo to In
stall heaters at tho present tlmo
without affecting tho car service.
I trust you will appreciate tho ar
gumcnts in my letter as to tho post

grant your request at this tlmo.
Yours very truly,
C. J. Franklin,
GOT SOME PRIZE WINNER3.
linrry Hunter was ono of tho vis
Iters at tho Albany Applo Fair. Ho
and Ills partner's purchased 14 boxes
of tho prlzo winners, costing them
$1.00 per box delivered at Portland
They nro going to uso them for (lis
play purposes to show that tho land
they nro offering for sale is capable
producing apples equal If not bet
ter than the famous Hood Itlvcr ro
Ho has a scries of 17 photos that
were taken of tho farm that they are
selling lu G ncro tracts, and they cor
talnly show boido rich farming land.
Ono of tho pictures shows n Btcntn
plow drawing 12 disc.
His proposition with tho Innd nnd
peoplo to back It up Is certainly a
winner. They huvu sold nearly COO
acres during tho past 7S days.
Harry states that they have never
taken a party to see tho land who
have not purchased, Kven tho l'rof-
fessors of tho O. A. C. who examined
thu soli for them purchased 10 acres.
You will find Harry Hunter at his of
fice 302-303 I.umbcrmons Dank llldg.,

A grenl tunny pious peoplo would
probably prove a far greater bless
ing to humanity If they would worry
less about their wings and work more
diligently with their liniidn and their
beads, If they would wonder less
about playing golden harps lu heaven
ud glvu more thought to gladdening
earth with tender symphonies played
upon tho golden strings of love
stretched on human hearts, If they
would have less anxiety about thu
exact nature of tho spiritual bony and
greater concern for the natural con-
lltlon nnd healthful earo of the
physical body. Wo nil ought to long
to dwell In a glorified body In thu
orld to come; but wo ought also to
strive to glorify this body In which

18 YOUR MEAT PURE?
While the people of Portland are
bolng agitated over tho Impuro milk
proposition, it would bo well for our
peoplo to look to tho quality of meat
they nro using. It Is of Just as vital
Importance that tho meat used should
bo pure as tho milk, and it is likely
that as many doaths aro caused by
diseased meats as from impuro milk
only it is moro difficult to traco,
Therefore, why buy your meat where
any question might bo raised as to
Its purity? do whero it has been
proven beyond peradventuro of
doubt that only good, wholosomo
meats aro sold, You owo It to your
family and you owo it to yourself.
Thcro is now moro sickness In this
city than over before, and who can
say that poor meat docs not havo its
sharo in this doplorablo stato of at'
fairs? Thoro Is ono market in St.
Johns whero you can get tho host,
and nothing but tho best In tho
moat lino. That is at MTQOOD &
COLE'S now market on North Jersey
street. Try them and boo.
"It affords mo great pleasure to
odd my testimony to that of tho
thousands who havo been benefited
by Chamberlain's Cough Itcmcdy.
My child, Andrew, when only throo
years old wan taken with a severe
attack of croup, and thnnka to thu
prompt use of Chamberlain's Cough
llumcdy hi; 1110 was saved and to
day iio is a robust and healthy boy,"
says Mrs. A, Coy, Jr., of San An
tonio, Texas. This remedy has been
lu uso for many yenrs, Thousands of
mothers keep It nt hand, and It has
nover been known to fall, For sale by
all good druggists.
