Did vou ever notice that the stand
ard articles which sell the cheapest
are also the ones Avhieh are the most
widely advertised? That is a .fact
and the same is true of mercantile
houses. The store that advertises the
most is in nearly every instance not
only the most reliable, but sells the
best goods the cheapest. The estab
lishment that hesitates to tell the
publicits brands and its prices usual
ly is forced to make uji its lack of
volume of business by increased
prices, smd are seldom, if ever, '-'one
price to all". concerns.

E. G. Bennett, of Carthage, Mo., staled
that at no other place in the state'
where similar sales have been held
has the stock been so uniformly gooc.
The prizes which had been offered
by Butler ' business men were award
ed by State Dairy Commissioner E.
G. Bennett, assisted by W. D.- Mc-
Kee of the btate Board of Agriculture
and immediately thereafter a parade
of the" stock was held. The Butler
Concert Band headed the procession
arid was followed by "Peoples Pride"
the handsome heifer donated to the
Red Cross by the Peoples Bank. She
was led in the parade bv Ravmond
fransnam .dressed as Uncle Sam. and
Miss Edith Mier in the itarb of a
Red Crps nurse.
After the sale talks were made bv
W. D. McKce, of the State Board of
Agriculture and Wesley Denton,
President of the Peoples "Bank, Mr.
Denton in his talk gave credit for the
success of the Peoples Bank to the
boys and girls and men and women
of Bates county and reminded his
audience that the bank stood ready
and anxious to at all times support
them in any worthy enterprise. He
also stated that the Bank contemplat
ed the establishment of other live
stock elubs "and requested that the
boys and girls who might be inter
ested call at the bank and advise with
its officers in regard-to the matter.
At the conclusion of the sale, the
drawing was held for "Peoples.
Pride. Henry Moudy of Adrian hold
ing the lucky number, 1519. Mr.
Moudv immediately presented the
heifer back to the Red Cross and she
was at once auctioned off, T. C. Jones
of this lily buying her in for $1.10.00.
The drawing was made by little Miss
Mice I'.iiibree, Judge L. J. Henry, .I.
i? 1 liniim and C. K. Harper act ini? as
judges. "Peoples, Pride" has been a
most valuable animal for the Red
Cross, the entire transaction netting

tiful little animal and was raised by

the Peoples Bank Call Club was
organized in October, 1917, when the
Peoples Hank in order to impress up
on the younger generation the
dairying possibilities of the county,
purchased the Holstein heifers in
Wisconsin and delivered them to the
Club members at a net cost of $24.00
per head. Since that time thirteen ot
the calves, died, the loss in each case
being borne by the Peoples Bank, and
not by the youthful purchasers, that
the Calf Club has proven an unquali
fied success is amply demonstrated
by the results of the sale and its es
tablishment will undoubtedly do
much toward bringing Bates county
into her own, as a dairying commun
ity. In order to further the excellent
results already achieved, the bank has
announced its intention of bringing
into the coitnty a number of regis
tered males. '
