The sweetness of low price
never equals the bitterness of
low quality. Think of this when
you open the mail order catalog1
next time.
You will find the present time
a good one to buy sugar.
Prof. Fitts, our country agri­
cultural agent, has recommended
the following for planting during
the next two weeks: peas, bar­
ley, small white beans or spuds.
Small white beans were recom­
mended especially as a good crop

We can furnish you with any of
the above seed immediately. It
is not too late for fodder corn
either. We have a supply of the
Pearl Corn on hand.
Perhaps you wonder if there is
any food that has not advanced
in price. Peanut-butter still sells
at the same price it always has,
and you will find that it costs less
than a third of what creamery
butter does. It makes excellent

The Boosting Spirit this week
received a letter from a reader
who has used 800 pounds of land
plaster on a sowing of clover but
exhausted the supply before fin­

leaves twice as large as the other
which is now only 5 inches high,

Empire Land Plaster is $11 per
ton as long as our present supply
holds out.

Cheese Factory. We are aware
of that, because one of the
stumps they blew out looked as
though it was coming through
our roof for a minute, but luck­
ily dropped in the road.
Oil M eal
This is an oil meal, the equal
of linseed meal in food value by
actual laboratory test.
The chemical analysis is print­
ed on the sack and the price is
50c less than linseed meal.
Fred, this week, demonstrated
his superiority as a driver by ac­
cepting a wager and driving an
automobile over our front plat­
form and down the steps. It
was not a Maxwell car either.
We are selling oranges at 10c
per dozen. And if you enjoy a
sweet juicy orange, just try one.
