THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT.
Combine the Useful With the Beauti
The Christmas time is coming on,
and those who contemplalte giving
presents are beginning to think about
the kind of present. It is a beautiful
custom which moves us to remember
our friends at this season. It also
commemorates and brings to mind
the greatest gift to man.
-In giving presents we sometimes
have difficulty in making selections.
It is not a bad idea to combine the
beautiful with the useful. At the
Ewart-Perry Company you will finf
a nice assortment of beautiful and
useful articles which are suitable for
Christmas presents, and they can be
bought for prices that are reason
Amongst these you will find neck
wear, mufflers, handkerchiefs, bath
robes, smoking jackets, suit eases,
hand bags, and a new line of ladies
ta'n and chocolate dhoes.
If the prohibition wave will take
our advice, sit will never beat aaginst

fire at Pomaria some time ago the
company refused -to mike paymeni
of the loss. The Setzler Compan.

to collect the judgment.
If these local companies desire t<
do business and ever expect to obtair

not meant to say that this compan:
does otherwise but the fact that om~

ly. but little damage resulted and Mr.
Hunter was able to extinguish the
flames before the department arriv
ed. The fire caught in the parlor, as
Mr. Hunter thinks, from a defective
chimney. The greatest damage was
to ihe mantel and papering in the
room. Mr. Hunter thinks that the
falhng of a large mirror, which was
over the mantel, aroused him
and in this way the fire was dis
cr. c red and his residence saved. He
estimates his loss at probably $100,
