The Home Paper.
Take the home naner. Suddosb it
doesn't contain all the telegraphic news;
suppose it costB a Utile more than the
big city weekly : take it anvhow. It's
just like this, good people : The editor
of the home paper always starts out
with big hopes and plans for his town's
success, and in a really good editor that
hope and those plans are ever present in
nis thoughts, though they often have to
be put on the top shelf while he scram
bles around to feed the wife and babiea.
You refuse to take his paper because it
is little, doesn't contain all the news,
costs more than the big, newsy city
weeklies, etc. Don't you know that if
you would all take as much interest in
the home papers as you do in church
fairs, and the like, you would soon have
a paper you would be proud of and one
that would help build up your town.
Outsiders judge a town by its newspa
pers. That's the only means they have
of judging your town from a distance.
Don't shame the old town The editor
is not made of gold. All he asks is a
modeet living and the money he makes
he will spend in booming your town.
It's the solemn truth and don't you for
get it If you will all take the home
paper, all pay your subscriptions, all
take interest in sending in news and all
encourage the editor, he will soon show
you the value of printer's ink. St.

Why Go East
over the sun-burned, sage brush and al
kali plains when you may lust as well
take a delightful, cool and comfortable
ride through the heart ot the Kocky
mountains in view of the grandest scen
ery on the American continent?
This you can do bv traveling on the
Rio Grande System, the far famed
"Scenic Line of the World" the only
transcontinental line passing through
Salt Lake City, Greenwood Springs,
Leadville, Colorado Springs and Den
ver enroute to Eastern points.
Three uaily express trains make close
connections with all trains east and
west and afford a choice of five distinct
routes of travel. The equipment of
these trains is the best, including free
reclining chair cars, standard and tour
ist sleepers, a perfect diniDg car service,
and also personally conducted excursion
cars, each In charge of a competent
ghide, whose business is to look after
the comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

The Parker " Lucky Curve "
The "Lucky Curve" not only feeds the ink perfectly to the
point of the pen and in the exact quantity desired, but it drains
the ink from the feed-channel back into the reservoir when the
pen is carried in the pocket so that the owner will not be annoyed
by wiping off the end of the fountain when he next uses the pen;
or, failing to do so, having inky fingers. The "Lucky Curve" fea
ture is patented and is used exclusively in the Parker.
The Spring Lock makes possible the successful Parker
Jointless feature. This simple device displaces the old style screw
nozzle, which is so liable to break at the point, in the pocket or
out, if a little undue pressure is brought to bear.
ANTI-Break Cap. A unique improvement, looks like an or
dinary cap, but the construction is extraordinary. The center of
the cap on the inside is heavily reinforced where it comes in con
tact with the barrel This cap is warranted against cracking or
splitting for one year. It is not only more than five times as strong
as any other cap, but it is exceedingly symmetrical and pleasing to
THE Gold Pen. The gold pens used in the Parker " Lucky
Curve " Fountain Pen are the very best that skill and money can
produce. They are 14k. fine, all tipped with first grade iridium.
We warrant them perfect. With proper use they will, in connec
tion with our fountain pen, last practically a life-time.
The Fountain Case. The fountain case itself is made from
the finest quality of pure Para rubber, imported especially for use
in Parker Pens.
With each Tarker "Lucky Curve" we give a guarantee for one year.
Prices from $2.00 to $6,00
Other makes from $1.00 up.
