Judge Joseph Kibbey, Attornoy

opinion to the effect that justices of

Fourth class postmasters through
out tho country have been less vocifl
orous in their demands for a larger
allowance since tho dismissal of Oscar
Poguo of Texas who fell under tho ax
while busily engaged in Washington
in bringing pressure to boar upon
Congressmen. "Absent without
leave," was the alleged reason for his
dismissal, but as President of tho
National Association of fourth class
postmasters and an active supporter
of the lobby in Washington ho was on
the "firing line."
In all directions tho Government

There is u merry war going on in
Washington between the Women's
Christian Temperance Union and tho
Women's Army and Navy League.
Both organizations are advocating
temporenco, the former as opposed to
the army canteen and tho latter urging
its reinstatement. Tho women of the
Army and Navy Loaguo Insist that
tho canteen Is In the interest of sobrie
ty, good morals, decency and health;
that it furnishes an assembling point
in camp and barracks and prevents
enlisted men wandering outside, dis
sipating and drinking themselves into
tho gutter, and indulging in tho worst
types of debauchery. The argument
of the Women's Christian Temperance
Union Is well known and is mainly to
the elTect that tho Government must In

out In any shapo or form tho vilo hell

A FEW WORDS TO
eculiar fact about tho harness business is that
terial flonthnr llrul snilrllnrv linrlirnr nnn n
purchhsed In small quantities just as cheap as In largo
quunwtles. Tho harness factory or wholesale house
paysnn oxhorbltant rent, is at large oxpenso for light,

Using and traveling men's expenses and salaries to sell
the goods, which they figure alone at 25 por cent. These
concerns aro mlddlomen, as they sell to merchants who
In turn mako a profit.
Now, in view of tho fact that we can buy our ma
terial just as cheap as anyone, you surely must see that
wo can sell harness much cheaper than others, as there
Is but ono profit, our harness going direct from the ma
ker to tho consumer.
Factory work Is done on tho "piece-work" plan,
consequently tho workmen slap tho work together In any
way to "turn out tho work," nnd it makes no difference
to them whether traces are cut from "belly" or "buck"
stock. Wo use nothing but No. 1 Oak tanned leather,
our stock is carefully selected for tho part of harncso
intended, tho "stretch" is taken out before tho leather
Is sowed, and wo guarantee It not to rip In two years
hard and constant use. Our motto is "Better Goods
for Less Money."
