Couch'fe Co. have always endeavored to do the right thing at the right time. Not only have We been close students
of the market giving patrons every advantage in the way of style, quality, price and discounts, but in many other
ways we have conserved the interests of our patrons. For a number of years we have been watching and carefully
investigating thevarious methods of profit-sharingspecial inducements for CASH business, with a view to adopting
that method which would insure the greatest possible benefit to the customer. These investigations convinced us
that the SPERRY & HUTCHINSON GREEN TRADING STAMP SYSTEM is in every way superior to all other sim
ilar plans. Undoubtedly the Premium Way is the only way the Premiums given for the "S. & H." GREEN TRAD
ING STAMPS are not only Better, but in greater variety than has ever been attempted by any other concern on earth.

ture give their famous stamps at all CASH SALES and on Charge Accounts that are Paid in Full in not to exceed
30 days, BEGINNING SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8th.
Now that we have concluded these arrangements, we are anxious that you should derive the fullest possible benefits
from them. In collecting S. & H. GREEN TRADING STAMPS, you virtully accumulate money. Each stamp has
a standard and fixed value, as much so as a UNITED STATES BOND Each stamp is backed by a MILLION DOL
LAR corporation, with an unblemished history, extending over fifteen years of time, and is redeemed with STAND
ARD MERCHANDISE of nearly every description. To collect these stamps should be considered as important a
factor in Household Economy as buying cheaply or obtaining the change which is DUE YOU.

mutual agreement ha been sus

violation of tho ordinance by
charging and accepting a higher
rate than prescribed by the city
council lias ueon iieiu in anoy
ance. This agreement has been
roachod for the reason that the
Commission did not care to have
a civil and criminal case pending
at tho same time. By order of
the Commission all water jmt
rons who pay the old rate be
ginning Kebruary first, in the
event that the Commission shall
find this price exorbitant, shall
be refunded tho excess over the
Commission's (hidings. Tho
outcome, of course, remains in
doubt. It will probably take a
month k'fore the Commission
concludes its investigation.
I'ntil it has arrived at a just
decision, there seems to bo noth

rates and await the res.'lt. It
seems to us that the proper
course is being pursued. I ho
Railroad Commission is endowed
with full power to make a thor

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in any place, thus affording any
desired distribution of light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
