A group of Weston citizens met in
social session one evening last week
and among other topics discussed
tho signs of spring which had come
under their observation. Iley Winn
remarked that he had seen a blue
bird flitting about tho orchard at
Meadowbrook farm. E. L. Woods
said tHut, his neighbors were taking
their plows to tho blacksmith for
sharpening. J. F. McNee had dis
covered an angle worm on his front
porch. The village druggist re
ported brisk sales of sassafras bark.
Whereupon, J. II. Williams arose to
his feet and exclaimed: "Gentle
men, your omens are fair indica
tions that awcot spring is return
ing, but I. offer infallible proof: I
know h woman who has set a hen!"

While A. J. Mclntyre was driving

axle of Mr. Mclntyre's automobile
were broken and the windshield
shattered. As he had his wife and
daughter with him, he felt fortunate
at escaping so lightly. Roads and
atrects were slippery with ice, and
Mr. Mclntyre heard that the high
way from Walla Walla to Dixie was
lined with wrecked automobiles.
Dry creek telephone patrons are

Andy Barnett, mail carrier on

Thoso who investigated found that We Were Truthful in our Ad
vertisements, and that Our Prices were Lower and that they could
buy cheaper from us than elsewhere.
For the past year we have had Mail Order House Cataloprues on
our counters, io that our customara could have them handy for
their reference in case they were in doubt as to our prices.
Our Irrrplerncnt tJusiness the past year was phenomenal. The
bulk of the Implement were sold away from the immediate vicin
ity, Walla Walla, and Prescott on one side and The Reservation
and Helix on the other. We even made one shipment to Baker,
Oregon. And we know it to be a fact that many of these same
men will buy implements again from us this year. In fact, we re
ceived an order this week for a Gang Plow to be delivered the
other side of Walla Walla.

There Must be a Reason
These people did not come to Weston to buy from us, because they
were In Love with us. They came because thejj Could Save
Money, and they Did Save Money. Our Policy will be to continue
to sell for less than the other fellow; and irrespective of what the
market conditions may be, you will always get the benefit of the
very best price here, and you can rely on what we say. You will
find us truthful, conscientious, and honest in all our dealings.
