It's too bad, Sir or Madam, but don't

enough that Parker's Hair Balsam
used now will prevent further de

Our Prosperity friends and readers are
under the impression that we have with
drawn the proposition to furnish the
HERALD to clubs of twenty at $1,50
each. We make this explanation : For
years this club has existed, b.t latterly
has been allowed to grow into disuse.
A short time ago we renewed it by
notifying our agent, Mr. Bowers, to
give written notice at his office to that
effect. For reasons we care not to ex
plain we withdreiv the proposition,
and Mr. Bowers acted in accordance
with our instruction-the club was
stopped. Since then we have had rea
son to again give our friends the priv
ilege of this favorable rate. The club
now exists and has been running for a
week or two, but with fhis additional
advantage; that instead of req.iring a
club to consist of twenty names, it can
be made offire names onlh. This is an
easier way of accomplishing the end.

And further, this club rate is not
offered simply to our friends at Pros

the couilty, and out of the county,
every one, no matter where, can enter

the reason why it is not oftener

this versatile and talented troupe see
reason to change their base and leave
