ibOaks From Acorns Grow.”
Just as the tiny acorn grows into a
mighty oak so any enterprise beginning
in a small way will, by courteous treat
ment, develop into a successful, pros
perous business. Note the progress of
my business and ask wliat it means.
It simply means that I am giving the
public honest values for every dollar in
vested ill mv store and that everyone
receives the most courteous treatment.
I carry a complete assortment of dry
goods and shoes as well as a fresh and
up-to-date stock of groceries. 1 handle
any kind of produce that there is a mar
ket for and pay the highest price for
same. On July 6th I am going to give
away for the benefit of my customers a
new 1901 $40 bicycle.

Postmasters throughout the United
States have received orders from the de
partment to discontinue the payiug of
money orders drawn on any other office
than their own. For some time past,
as an ex[>eriment, postmasters have been
flaying money orders drawn on any post
office, when they could satisfy them
selves that the orders were all right.
This scheme lias been found unsatisfac
