Now that is the way we feel and that is just the way we
aim to keep feeling.
If we can keep in stock such goods as are desirable and of sound values and
deliver them to you at such prices that they are 100 cents or better for every
Dollar you pay us, then we are in a position to say and to feel that we do not
owe you a penny. We don't even owe you a THANK YOU. How many
Pretty Thank Yous do vou give the fellow who buys your wheat? Do you owe
him anything because he bought his wheat of you? Do you feel under obli
gations to him because he bought something of you?.
Nowlc.ll us the difference. Tefl u$ the difference.
There is a difference and a good deal of difference, but
it is most decidedly in our favor. Think it over.
Now wc re not Myint: we do not appreciate ycur business. We DO. Come A jain. We
like to say THANK YOU and we feel that way too. Come and See.

Mayor Breaks a Deadlock.
Th city council held a special
meeting Monday to conalder an appli
cation from Dr. F. D. Watta for per
mission to build a stairway extending
rrom tne Broad street sidewalk, near
th Main street corner, to the upper
etory of the building occupied by th
Weston Mercantile company. The pe
titioner eat forth that the atalrway
would ba "well conatructed and safe
guarded to prevent accident," and
agreed to widen the concrete aidewalk
at the base of the stairway aa far aa
the tre to make up for th room
The proposal resulted In considera
ble discussion, and when a vote was
taken It waa found that th council
atood three-all, aa follows: Price.
Rogers and Baling, yes; Brandt. Wur-
ser and Wood, no. Thla deadlock put
the question up to Mayor Baniater,
who cast an affirmative vote.
It la reported thnt Dr. Watta will
not take advantage of the permission
thua granted, and In order to avoid
controversy will adopt other plana
for reaching tha npper part of hia
building with the proposed stairway.
