THAT LEFT OVER
Senator Manna, as chair

Mill was left In the hands i

in the next election for Congi
State legislators. There is
reason to believe that the
finding its way into localities where it
will do much good.?Ivattsas < uy
It is quite probable that whatever
surplus was left over alter electing
McKinley will be expended in tie- cam?
paign this fall. If one may bei lev 'he
reports coming from Washington how?
ever, there- is no r ? tat even
J2.0U0,00fl can say.' the next Hons- for
the Republicans .a' not. Whether just?
ly or not the people are inclined to
hohl the administration responsible for
everything that went wrong in eon.
tion with the Spanish-American war.
and the G. O. P. is not going into the
fight at a winning gait. Then is no
doubt that money is a powerful factor
Jn influencing elections, but He re are

Well we hope it Is. but we Know
that summer and hot weather win be
with us for some time to come and if
you have not already availed yourself
of the chance to get a good Detroit
Jewel Gas Range you have missed one
of your best friends and more, you
have missed the comfort that can only
lie had from the use of gas fuel, which
brings deligh' and happiness wherever
it is in use. Talk is cheap you may
say and a gas man must "gas," and
who can blame him. He knows a good
thing?he wants to push it along, and
he is willing that his friends should
share in the procession. Generous soul
that he is, he gives his advice free. It
Is no trouble to sing the praises of gas
for fuel and as for light, its beauty
shines so lie who runs may be impress?
ed. Gas for fuel at $1.00 is the cheapest
fuel if it is economically used. Are
you economical ? You are. prudent and
wise. Therefore get a gas range. We
will tell you something next week
about heating that will surprise you.
Call No. 34 on either phone if you can
not call. But come If you can.
