POKTUND, April 10. (To the Ed

of enough intelligence to vote and own

his mind it It can be shown that he is
acting the part of the man who cut off
his nose to spite his own face. But
I have yet to find a single objection
against the road paving bonds that

Missouri, and bave got to be shown

siastic for the bonds as the rest of us.
Let s consider It dispassionately, as

the money, on the ground that it would
increase your burdens? Suppose you
had a farm 30 miles from the city
which, once profitable, was now, under
changed conditions, running behind;
but by getting a paved highway to the

cannot expect to get hundreds of dol

an outlay; but to the clerk, the grocer,
the plumber, the small merchant, the
returns which may filter through a
thousand channels from the $800,000
of this bond issue which wilt be paid
to labor may be the difference between
loss of position or business and a con

capital to the body politic through

to the circulation of bloed In the hu

and you'll be relieved from much worry and misery. You'll admit it would take some
"nerve" on our part to make these positive statements unless we could "deliver the goods,"
so to speak; particularly so because of the thousands of people who have been made skep
tical on account of preparations of no merit being sold them that have proved bitter and
expensive disappointments. We guarantee our product on the basis of your money back if
it does not satisfy you, after you have used it as directed. We promise you results in good
faith, for WHETZEL'S has long since passed the experimental stage. Nearly 20 years
of practical and scientific observation and study has brought it to the undeniable
point of excellence. Any conscientious druggist, barber or hair dresser familiar with
its use will tell you it is good and genuine and has no relations with fake or quack
ery. For baby in the,cradle and grandma in the arm chair it is a household necessity
and blessing. Soothing and healing wherever applied, once used it will always be kept
on hand. Use it not only for the hair and scalp, but for the face as a massage dress
ing, because it clears the skin and improves the complexion wonderfully. Being an
antiseptic it heals cuts and pimples. Men find it a shaving luxury for similar rea
sons. Don't be skeptical; don't close your mind to the possibilities of relief ; try once
more and try WHETZEL'S. Ask for it, use it, and if it does not do as we say, please
remember your money will be returned. Come and see our demonstration and free
applications; they will prove a liberal education to you about the skin, scalp and hair.
