Your Money's Worth
i n a Wa t c h Case
The reliable watch case, with its tight-fitting
caps and neat joints, is a mighty fine piece of
workmanship. There are a dozen' ways to cheapen
it in amount of labor put on it, in skill, in weight, in fineness.
The genuine watch case is m:ule not merely to please the eye an J to sell,
but to protect the wonderfully fine and delicate mechanism of the watch
movement or " works."
You know how it is in buying anything : if you take things for cranu-d
and don't know what to ask for you get an adulterated article a substitute
said to he "just as good " as the genuine.
The trade markt illustrated on this paKe ire your safeguard. They are standard with
the fine jewelry trade, and have been for jo year.. They mean absolute integrity in bullion
value in aay in construction of a watch caw. Be sure to find them. Every good jeweler
in this country knows the markt and carries the cases. They are made for ladies' and men a
watches plain, engine-turned, engraved or enameled. All met, all patterns.

relation of this great question to the
rarmers. wno nave a ngni to auow
the truth in regard to an Institution
tnat so vitally affects them and their
First we assert that the saloon
makes tuxes tor the farmer. This
fact Is one that the friends of the
traffic have constantly denied and
sought to put aside. But nevertheless
the cold stubborn fact remains, and
cannot be refuted by any exponent of
the traffic. For proof we ned on
ly reflect on conditions In communi
ties where the saloon exists. It Is a
matter of common knowledge that,
under the license system, the license
money goes into the city treasury,
while the community outside of the
corporate limits gets no benefit from
It whatever. Yet on the other hand
the farmer of the outside communi
ties is compeled to suffer the con
sequences. The liquor men ask "How
suffer?" It Is universally declared by
impartial students of the liquor prob
lem and by the courts of our nation
that the saloon is the most prolific
source of misery, debauchery and
crime. Statistics show us that in the
prisons of our various states from 60
per cent to 90 per cent of the inmate
are there as a director indirect re
sult of the saloon. In our own state
85 per cent of the criminals In our
penitentiary are there from the ef
fects of the traffic. This Is true al
so concerning our county jails. And
how does this affect the farmer? It
can be easily seen. Eighty-five per
cent of the taxes he pays for the cor
rection and punishment of the com
mission of crime is paid to take care
of the direct product or tne regu
lated" licensed liquor traffic. In oth
er words he nava more than five
times as much to keep down crime
growing out of the liquor trarnc as
hp rinps fr.r that crowing out of all
other sources combined.
Nor is this all. The state througn
taxation maintains an institution for
tho fpohlfl minded. Statistics also
show that fifty per cent of the in
mates of that institution are uire
as a result of the influences of alco
hoi. Also for this the farmer pays.
So we might continue to show how
the liquor business affects the farm
er. Yet the advocate of license and
regulation would have him believ
that such anr institution is a benefit
to him and his interests. The truth
is that there is nothing that costs
him more. And when we consider
that it is the farmer who pays the
larger share of our iaxes, is it not
fair and Just that he should share in
the right to decide whether or not
the saloon shall continue within the

is why, when they decided to equip some troops
with repeating shotguns, they selected the Win

pronounced it safe, sure, strong and simple. If
