Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Lurkev have
recently received a letter from their
son Norman, who is connected with a
Radio Station In the Philippines. He
had just been transferred to a new
station and writes interestingly of Its
advantages and the snugness of his
new berth. Norman b many old time
school mates are glad to learn of his
advancement in the service and this
letter indicates he is in excellent
quarters. He writes:

Having arrived in my new home a

enough to write you a little this after

some leters from you before I left

transferred and did not get a chance
to answer them.

A payroll is something every town
should strive for. It gives life to a
place and makes better conditions.
The possibility of payrolls should be
given serious consideration by all
public spirited citizens. If we don't
think about such things they are not
likely to materialize. If we don't
have some dreams we are going to be
just "dronelike" and the fellow who
does the dreamlug will be getting
away with the "persimmon" some
day. At least that Is the opinion of

magnitude. By the establishment of
such a plant in this city we would be
provided with the necessary power for
lights, power and water. It would
add many families to our population
and give us an enormous additional
business. The writer Is not a saw

man or group of men who are prac

enterprise Is worthy.

Why the Essex Motor Car will be
the sensation for the coming season
Every part and every detail of the Essex con
struction is of proved worth. It was designed
and built by some of the foremost engineers of
America, the same men whose genius produced
the Super-Six. Many points of superiority in
the Super-six which have proved themselves in
years of service, have been incorporated into
the Essex. The engine, only twenty-nine
inches long, cast in one block with detachable
head, readily develops more than fifty horse
power. Long life is assured by the ample pro
portions of the counterbalanced crank shaft,
supported by three large bearings.
