It will then be 12 o’clock here.
What sort of influence does Francis
J. Heney have over President Roose
velt anyway? The last scalp ' to be
taken by Heney is that of the U. S.
Marshal Matthews who was retired by
the president at the instigation of the
said district attorney a few days ago.
Francis J. had better look a little out
for there’ll come a day of reckoning
for his recklessness.
Our attention has been called to the
fact that a large sign board should be
placed at the depot, on which might
be read something like this: “ Forest
Grove, half-mile away, population
2000, good schools, churches, busi
ness opportunities and finest agricult
ural community in the world,” etc.,
for the edification of passengers who
don’t know of such a town as Forest
Grove. The small expenditure of
money that it would take will do more
good towards advertising the town,
than the same amount in any other
way. This small matter should not be

Where are the people going? To

many people are sending their m oiey
to the large cities. When money goes
to the large cities, the good teachers,
good preachers, good doctors, follow to
get the money— your money. The
results will be poor teachers in your
home schools, poor preachers in your
churches, doctors that you are afraid to
employ, druggists who you can’ t trust
to fill a prescription safely.
Can you expect first class professional
men to remain in your locality when
you send your money to the city? No!
When you patronize mail order
houses you pay money into the city
plutocrat’s purse. How? By killing
home industries, driving skillful doctors
and teachers to the city because they
can’t afford to stay wita you.
You deprive your children of good
teachers, your wife and daughters of
social life, your entire family of medical
service and religious opportunity, turn
ing over all these benefits to the city
man. Is he to have entertainments and
you to take what’s left?
Buy at home and keep your money
in your home town. Unless you do
you will have no town, no respectable
schools, no churches, no social pleas
ures. Just humdrum routine, like
horses and cows.— Exchange.

W e Back E ve ry
And we back every statement we make in regard to the goods in our store— and when we make this
statement we mean exactly what we say. “If any article bought in our store fails to give satisfaction,
all you have to do is to notify us and we will “make right” in such a way that you will be satisfied.”
Our Mail Order Proposition
W e suppose that your only object in sending
out of town for certain goods is to get better
prices than you think is possible here. If that’s
the case we would like to have you consider this
proposition. Next time you make up your list
for an order to the catalogue house bring it in to
us and we will submit our figures. If we don’t
save you any money on your order, besides the
freight charges, sepd in the order, but if we can
show you that we will sell you the same or better
goods for less than catalogue prices, we ask for
your business, and that’s the only basis on
which we solicit you patronage.
Our Clothing Combines Style
And at fair prices, just because our clothing is a
little better made and of better material is no
reason for us to ask more than other stores charge
for mediocre grades. Take a look at our win
dow display, then come in and examine the
material display, and workmanship, you will be
We Want* to Sell You
And we^ know that if you will give us a chance
to “ show you” we will sell you; our line this
season contains absolutely everything that has
been mentioned in the fashion journals as par
ticularly stylish and in addition, of course, every
thing in staple goods, prices will suit you.
Well Known Corsets
W ell known for their comfort and fitting qualities,
in light and medium weight materials, in just the
shape you need for your particular figure.
Faultless Fitting Footwear
The material isn’t everything, the price isn’t
everything, the style isn’t everything, the fit isn’t
everything, you don’t often find them all com
bined in one line, we know that after much search
we have succeeded in finding such a line of shoes,
come in next time you want a pair for yourself,
your wife, boy or girl, you will get suited in
Extraordinary Values in
It isn’t often that we can quote such very unusual
prices on good reliable underwear but this is one
of the occasions. The lots arn’t very large but
you will find what you want if you get here soon
A Good Hat*—Not too Dear
Our hats are made of real fur felt, they will hold
their shape and color and we are satisfied with a
small profit, so we can sell you a good hat for
the price you have to pay in exclusive stores for
only mediocre qualities, that’s why we sell so
many good hats.
W a n t a New Stylish Shirt,?
If you do, and don’t care to pay a stiff price just
drop in and look over the line that we got in last
week, you’ll find what you want.
