RUY UEO CROSS SEALS.
We cannot urge too strongly upon
the people of Walba Ila the necessity
of purchasing us liberally as possi
ble the anti tuberculosis Red Cross
Chrislinas Seals. The proceeds from
the sale of the seals are used to fight
the white plague, which is the great
est menace to-day of the human race.
So far wo have not seen any of theso
seals on salo in Walhalla, but we are
Informed that they can bo purchased
at the oillco of N. L. Fant on Main
street, in tho old Enterprise Hank
building, across from C. W. Fitch
ford's store. It may not bo so con
venient for you to cross the street
for the special purpose of buying tho
seals, but lot us Inconvenience our
selves a blt in-order to help this
worthy cause. Walhalla will fall far
.short of doing her share in this sale
if we do not all make an effort to
help. There ls not much time left In
which to uso tho stamps for tho
Christinas season, but get your seals
and use them liberally on the re
mainder of your Christmas packages
ai d on your mail matter generally.
Ruy Seals! Stick them on every
ing! Every dollar will count in the
irk of reducing the monaco of tu
rculosls.
