FROM THE BELFRY.
It Is common folly to hasten toward
Love may be mutual and yet be
The absent bird Is not lost, and
love will return.
Woman Is what she Is, not what
she seems to be.
Love Is In the Imagination rather
than In the heart.
Pearls of love are the ones oftcnest
cast bofore swlno.
Woman makes excellent comedy
and tragedy to order.
Love cannot be doflned exactly; It
can be acted perfectly.
The unwise and the unworthy
nevor win true possession.
Woman has been studied faithfully,
but she remains a mystery.
To be able to win love docs not al
ways Imply virtue or merit
Women are always to win, and ar
never to be considered won.
Professional lovers are the least
successful in winning regard.
Nature tells us whom to love; roa
son must say when and where.
Nature confides to women the se
crets she does not care to keep.
The devil Is not half so subtle as a
woman, nor any angel half so plau
sible. Woman gives many times the
pleasure she receives in all relations
of life. She Is a perennial fountain
of joy. Incorruptible unless abused.
Purity, accuracy and quick service
is the moto of our drug department.

The average retailer docs not em
ploy enough printers' Ink, and employ
it In the proper direction. In dealing;
with the trade for bis community.
The enemies of the retailer, the mall
order houses, are products of printers'
Ink and know full well the value of
It. They are not anxious that the re
tall dealers of tho country wake up.
They are satisfied to allow conditions
to go on and allow them, the mall
order house, to get the benefit of tho
trade which is coming to them
through their aggressive advertising
campaigns. If a merchant would fol
low out their schemes of publicity
upon a small scale in his Immediate
territory, would get out some adver
tising matter In the form of circulars
with prices and descriptive matter, It
would win, The way to fight fire Is
with fire, and the retailer has had the
shortcomings of his anti-mail-order
bouse campaigns thrown back "upon
blm with little or no satisfactory re
sults. Campaigns he has set up In
opposition have In a measure taken
tho edge off the catalogue houses' cam
paigns, but why not get right Into the
game and fight them with tbesame
ammunition that thoy are using to ex
terminate the retail trade of the coun
try? Use local papers liberally and
get out circulars, letters and price
lists, well printed and Illustrated.
