This heading means a great deal, for it is no easy task to per
fect every department of an establishmert like ours, to handle the
volume of trade that we have every reason to expect will be ten
dered to us this season. September so far has shown a very lib
eral increase over the corresponding period of last year. and if
"Coming Events Cast
Their Shadows Before"
THIS PROMISES TO BE
OUR BANNER SEASON.
It is indeed gratifying to note the unusual increase in the vol
ume of our business, a.nd to say that we appreciate the confidence
reposed in us, gives but a faint idea of our feelings. We regard
the interest of every person that does business with us as ours,
and will do everything in our power to protect them.
We cannot give away gold dollars for ninety cents, no reason
able person expects that, and wherever you find a merchant offer
ing staple merchandise at less than cost, his object is to attract
you to his store with a view of selling you something the value of
which you are not familiar with, and make up his loss on the lead
ing article, as well as a comfortable profit on the other items.
Nothing of that character will be tolerated in this store; we de
spise it. Our business is based upon a legitimate percentage of
profit, and that tigured on as close a basis as is consistent with in
telligent merchandising. It is true, we sometimes sell goods at
and below cost, but that only occurs at the end of a season, or
when we have erred in buying something that did not prove to be
as good a seller as we expected, or bought too freely of certain
lines, then we make our loss as quickly as possible, for experience
has taught us that the first loss is always the lightest. Our ambi
tion ought to be satisfied for we are said, by those who are in a
positi6n to know. to be
The Largest Retail
Dealers in the State.
And while we might be satisfied to remain just in the position we
are, that would be practically impossible, we must go backward or
forward, and our mercantile pride will not permit of a backward
step, and each year will find us in the front rank, seeking new
fields, new customers, and keeping fully in touch with the spirit
and progress of the city in which we take such pride.

There is a fish in Hawaiian waters
which is known by the native name
of humuhumunukunukukuapuaa, which
means literally "sewing up tb.e nose."
The Hawaiian method of killing a pig
to be roasted is to smother it, tot cut
its throat, and it Is smothered by sew
ing up the pig's mouth and nose. This
fish with the long na-me has spines
which in ancient times were used as
needles to sew up the pig's mouth;
hence the name more fully means "the
fish that provides the needles for sew
ing up the nose of the pig."
A Liquid Cold Cure.
A Cough Syrup which drives a cold
out of the system by acting as a cathar

Laxative Honey and Tar. Clears the

the children's favorite. Best for Croup,
Whoopin Cough. etc. A liquid cold
cure, and the only Cough Syrup which
movei the bowels and works all cold out
of the system. Sold by The R. B. Lor

A Divided Church.
Tiere is a very striking instance of
religious toleration in Heidelberg, an
ancient city of Germany. One of the
most important buildings of that town
is the Church of the Holy Ghost.
Trough the middle of this building
a partition wall has been run, so that
services according to the Roman Cath
olic and the Protestant ritual may be
held at the same time. In the year
1719 an attempt was made by Charles
Philip the Elector to deprive the Prot
estants of their half of the church, but
the townspeople made so strong a re
sistance that he was obliged to desist
and even to remove the electoral court
from Heidelberg to Mannheim.--LOn

The Kind You Have Always Bought
There is a queer twist of language in
the phrase "to eat humble pie." The
word "humble" is a corrupted form of
the original "numble," which Is an in
edible part of the carcass of a deer and
would make very poor pie. The words
"humble pie" have the same original
meaning as "to eat crow," a phrase
common in political life. There Is an
enforced humility in this process, and
the change from "numble" to "humble"
introduced a thought which harmo
nized with the Idea sought to be ex
pressed. The last form of the phrase
has entirely supplanted the original.
How to Avoid Pnumonia.
We have never heard of a single in
stance of a cold resulting in pneumonia
or other lung trouble when Foley's
Honey and Tar has been taken. It not
only siops the cough but heals and
strengthens the lungs. Ask for Foley's
Honey and Tar and refuse any substi
tute offered. Dr. C. J. Bishop, of Air
new, Mich., writes: "I have used Fo
ley's Honey and Tar in three very se
vere cases of pneumonta with good
results in every case." The R. B. Lor

Bnkiepur's Grain Golah.
A. curious instance of the miagn1ifi
cence of eastern ideas and admiration
for things that are large is the grain
"gola," to be seen at Bankipur, In
Bengal, India. It was built as a gran
ary in 1783, but never used as such.
Its walls are of masonry twelve feet in
thickness, and it stands ninety feet
high, with a circumference of forty
three feet at the base, and would con
tain about 130,000 tons of grain- Ac
cess to the interior is obtained by a
stircase on the outside leading to a
platform on the top, where there is a
stone placed in the center, which can
be removed. Now it Is perhaps the
finest wflispering gallery in the world.

I think everybody should contribute
towards aiding the officers of the Cot

The Association has been the means of

Mr. Editor. we voters are going to re

ing office have a great love for the
farmer, but now that the farmer is mak
ing a fight to benefit his material inter
ests so that he can take his place with
other men the fellow who gets office or
wants to get office is not seen or heard
from. The voters are going to keep a
sharp lookout for such, and when next
summer comes along they are going to
be tabooed if they haven't given mate
rial aid to the Cotton Association. We
farmers give up our time, which is mo
ney to us, to go to the primary to send
men to the Legislature and to give sal
aried offices to, and yet, when we ask
them to come to our aid in this great
struggle we are engaged in. they skulk
away and don't give a cent. I notice
where you have made an appeal for con
tributions, and we are going to watch
the columns of THE TIMES to see who
it is that has patriotism when there are
no elections at hand, and every man
who comes before the people for an

In Time of Peace.
In the first months of the Russia-Ja
pan war we had a striking example of
the nesessity for preparation and the
early advantage of those who, so to
speak, "have shingled their roofs in
dry weather." The virtue of prepara
tion has made history and given to us
our greatest men. The individual as
well as the nation should be prepared
for any emergency. Are you prepared
to successfully combat the first cold you
take? A cold can be treated much
more quickly when treated as soon as it
has been contracted and before it has
become settled in the system. Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is famous for
its cures of colds, and it should be kept
at hand ready for instant use. For sale
