ON WITH THE FIGHT
Press dispatches tell us that for months a bitter fight has been waget by
the retailer and the consumer against the manufacturer and the wholesaler.
'the bone of contention is the lowering Bf prices. The consumer is tired of
paying profiteering prices for everything he buys. He is calling a halt by
curtailing his expenditures. The retailer realizes this and feels the loss of
trade through the determination of the consumer to buy only absolute neces
sities until such time as prices return to normal.
I The retailer is as desirous of a reduction in priees as is the consumer,
and is fighting the manufacturer and the wholesaler to this end.. The lat
ter, however, appears to be loath to surrender his excessive profits, and is
holding out to the end. That end, when it comes, may possibly be a federal
grand jury indictment for profiteering. The government, the retailer and the
consumer, when working together, are decidedly more powerful than the
manufacturer and the middleman.
Stubbornness and greed may succeed for a time, but it gets a jolt in the
Pric'es, we are told, are coming down every (lay. Probably go up again
during the night.
Our latest operatic stars are a twinkling success. You can't tell whether
they are singing or having a fit of hysterics.
Mortorists are playii. , in hard luck. They are forced to pay exorbitant
prices for gas, and get no rebate for the stink. .
No matter hodf the election goes in November, there will still be a hund
red million people left who are willing to work or be worked. We'll get along.
You've got to hand it to some of our political spellbinders in at least one
respect. They can make other people believe a line of bunk they wouldn't
e !ven dream of believing themselves.
Washington dispatches tell us that the coal situation is becoming serious.
Our own common sense tells us that the lack of coal is becoming niore serious
--*t will soon be a freezing calamity.
With the advent of suffrage the henpecked husband should breathe a
profound sigh of relief. Women will be too busy settling the intricate prob
tems of state to waste time on the minor affairs of life.

Paris, they tell us, is full of American men and women who are blowing
money to the winds in a wild orgy of fashionable debauchery. If they would
only blow themselves along with their money the rest of us would feel cleaner
and less contaminated by their absence.
There's a very charming lady in this community who once, when slightly
peeved, declared that there is never anything in this sheet worth reading.
Some of these days we are going to run a nice, genteel, complimentary notico

A MERCILESS JUDGE
One Who Knows No Favor.
A merciless judge is Father Time.
Before him the weak and the wanting
go to the wall. Only the truth cai
stand. For years the following state
ment from a Manning resident has
withstobd this strernest of all tests.
- Mrs. R. L. Logan, W. Boundry St.,
Manning; gave the following state
ment January 30, 1911: "1 have been
greatly, relieved and benefited by
Doan's Kidney Pills. I suffered with
my back and kidneys and I couldn't
sleep well nights. I got Doan's Kid
ney Pills and they relieved me Vpn.
derfully of all my trouble."
GONE FOR GOOD
On February 15, 1918, Mis. Logan
said: "The cure Doap's Kidney Pills
gave me some time ago has lasted. I
have been in fine health ever since
and I am only too pleased to again
give them my endorsement."
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy-get
Doan's Kidney Pills--the same that
Mrs. Logan had. Foster-Milburn Co.,
