Did He Expect Free Advertising?
A short time ago we received
from the American Press Assoc

waited a time and receiving no
order from the Doctor regarding
the matter we wrote to know
what to do in the premises, stat
ing that we should be pleased to
publish any amount o f campaign
matter for him at regular rates.
In due course o f mail we received

Dr. Smith has asked me to
make acknowledgment of your re

of the belief that it would be advis
able to defer advertising until the
Fall, when we would be pleased to
take this matter up with you again.
Very truly yours,
Now what worries us is, if he
did not desire to advertise until
fall why was he in such a rush to
get the cuts out? We notice that
several newspapers are running
the cut in advance o f the “ fall

Wednesday morning a represen
tative of the Newr, while waiting
at the New Falls City Hotel to see
a man, was invited by Mr. Droege,
the proprietor, to take a look at
his back yard. The first thing in
view was the laundry department
where snowy white sheet«, table*
cloths and other ncces-ary para
phernalia of a well regulated hotel
The cackling of chickens next at
tracted attention. A large yard
filled with fryers and hens was a
sight calculated to make a Me
thodist preacher set up and take
notice. The garden down by the
Luckiamute looked best of all;
cabbage, lettuce, potatoes, roast
ing ears and many other good
things was sufficient to make one
wish to slay for dinner. Besides
being a good hotel man, Mr. Droege
would make a good gardener. Last,
hut not least, was a couple of tat
shoals in a nice clean pen that
were being fattened for slaughter.
