An Illusion Somewhere,
'The Idea," we say to our heavy-set
friend. "Tho Ideal Why, you weigh
fully 300 pounds, yet you fold your
bands with calm philosophy and tell
us It Is merely a mental state, that you
aro slender and lithe. In other words,
you Imagine you are thin. Bosh!"
"Ah, you poor, misguided one," he
breathos, placidly. '.'Alas, you are la
boring under the delusion that you
see the flesh which onco was my
mental error. You should take a men
tal vibration before each meal and on
going to bed."
Dumbly wondering whether or not
tho trueness of an Impression Is to be

gaze of one whoso subllmental mental
processes havo begun to sizzle.

A Talk on
Drug Store Purchases
PROBABLY there is no class of merchand
ise on which you must depend so much
on the integrity-and business honor of a
store as when buying Drug Store Goods. Few
of us have the opportunity to become compe
tent judges of the real value of the majority of
the things sold in a Drug Store, and misrepre
sentation is easy, and alas, not infrequent. Here
you buy with a comforting assurance that the
goods are just what the label says. We do bus
iness on strictly business principles which will
certainly appeal to you.

The Busy Store
For General Wear
you will find it a difficult matter to ob
tain a more practical suit than this one.
It is sold at a popular price and is
suitable for so many different occasions
that it is economical to purchase it.
The suit is made from blue serge and
is quite stylish, having a natty air, not
too conventional, nor yet loud. It is
what you might call 'smart' or 'snappy.'
This is a suit we'd urge you to buy if
it was our practice to urge customers.
But if you will come in, examine it and
other suits, we'll do no urging try them
on and make up your own mind.
The price is very reasonable. Consider not only the
style and the fit, but the quality, which is an inherent part
of all numbers in the " Palmer Garment " line.

Tho first meeting of tho creditors of
tho Hardy Grain Co., bankrupt, was
held hero Friday, with Hon. T. A.
Lancaster, Ileferee in Bankruptcy,
presiding. There woro numerous cred
itors and attorneys present. Three
trustees were elected as follows:
Sold Wnddell, of this city; J. W.
Drown, who has been temporarily In
charge of tho business pending the
meeting; and W. II. Bobbltt, of
Humboldt. This Btep was thought
best In view of tbo fact that there
are so many conflicting Interests and
close questions that will likely arise
In tho adjustment of this estate. A
great many claims wore filed, but tho
amounts bad not been calculated, so
that It was not possible to give the
total. Tho rcfereo mado-au order di
recting tho trustees to sell all per
sonal property at onco for cash. The
real estate to bo sold, including tho
mills and elevators and machinery
attached, will be sold on terms of
one-third cash, tho balance on six
and twelve months, with approved
personal security and lien retained,
The meeting adjourned until Nov. 12,
when tho unfinished business will bo
taken up, and any other business,
together with tho report of tho trus
tees, If any, and bo disposed of.
