Are the Best Manufactured.
WHY, LETIS 'TAKE REASON INTO CONSIDERATION: r
BECAUSE: They are made, not of scrap iron, but of pure pig iron r
BECAUSE: They are the only ones that have the ventilated Ovens,
thus rendering them perfect bakers.
BECAUSE: They are the heaviest and have more lasting qualities. r
BECAUSE: They have always taken first prize over all others.
BECAUSE: They are high priced Stoves and the dealer cannot get
* but little profit out of them.
BECAUSE: They have a reputation that none other has nor can
wish to get.
BECAUSE: They are handled by a man who is catering for the
BE hardware trade, one who has and always will knock the
spots out of any prices that can be offered you in the
town of Manning.
My prices will speak for themselves and sell the Stoves.

Why Alexandre Dumas Did Not Suc

The Mousquetaire, a Parisian jour

and then became extinct. It was car

staff was the largest and most varied

Everybody was dazzled, and Dumas I
himself more than all the rest. No I
business enterprise, however, could ex
ist on such a basis, and the journal be
gan to languish. Then a man named
Boule proposed taking the speculation
out of Dumas' hands. He offered the
great man 100 francs a day, which
meant more than $7,000 a year.
"Here," said Boule, is a checkbook
full of those little tinted leaves you are 1
so fond of. Every morning you have
only to write your name at the foot of
one, send it into the office and touch
your 100 francs.
Iimas loved money, and his face
beamed with delight. "But suppose."
said he, "that some day I should want
300 or 400 francs?"
'"Well, all you have to do is to send
in three or four of your checks. Noth
ing is more simple."
The book lay on the author's desk, a
delightful and ready resource. Did a
creditor call? A slip of paper, and he
was paid. A poor woman was about to
be turned out into the street. A few
wore slips, and she was relieved. At
the end of the week nothing was left4
