LIGHTEST MINERAL WATER,
And retains its gases longer than other Water on the market.
THIS JS CLAIMING
A GfeEAT DEAL.
But you can maLs the test yourself by taking a bottle of |4
WHITE STONE CARBONATED WATER and opening it,
and at the same lime opening a bottle of any other, and you
will be surprised how much longer WHITE STONE LITHIA
WATER will retain its gasses than the other. Another test
you can make of the softness of this water, that it does not have J
the ?harp, burning sensation on the tongue or stomach when J
drinking it that most carbonated waters have. If you will give
it a trial you will,have cone other.
The WHITE STONE LITHIA ALE will retain some of
its gasses after remaining open 48 hours, while most Ginger
Ale On the market will not retain theirs 48 seconds.
All we ask of you h to make a test of our Water and Ale,
and we know you will be convinced of their superiority.

Now that tho cherry tree cases are
disposed of, it is fair to ask the ques
tion: How many of you sympathized
with the people who were defrauded.
Through newspapers, nnd by tho expe
rience of other people, they hud been
warned against such schemes. They
wished to get somothing for nothing?
or practically no effort?and they placed
blind faith in an absurd proposition.
So they lost. Another cherry tree con
cern, under a different name, can start
business in this country to-morrow
and make quick money until the law
intervenes. There is always a surplus
amount of wealth that foiks arc anx
ious to get rid of. Everybody in a
community may bo complaining of
hard times, but Buffalo Hill can come
along, pick np $10,000 and tho amount
isn't missed. Such restless money is
always ready to feed tUe tricksters,
too. Last year nt the square a man
declared that the soap he offered for
sale would cure anything from in
growing nails to leprosy, and was worth
twenty, times the price he named.
That night, w hen his pockets were full
of money, ho laughed and admitted
that his marvelous cure-all was made
by pouring cheap German extract on
large bars of soap, which were sliced
into smaller bars nnd covered with
tinfoil. He aud half the world piny
the cherry tree game while the other
half gladly purchases?just foolish ex
