BETTER BE CAREFUL
WHAT YOU EAT!
If you had a craw like a chicken and a
gizzard full of sand rocks you might eat al
most anything, but the human stomach is a
delicate piece of machinery and demands
great care. Don't take liver and stomach
medicine and pills; it's not that you need.
Buy good, pure, wholesome, fresh groceries;
buy the best, and see how different you feel.
The market is full of cheap, rotten, nasty
stuff, the slops and leavings from canning
and packing houses, which is put up under
bright labels and sold cheap. Beware, of
such stuff; its dangerous. We don't handle it;
don't buy it; don't want it. We handle only
the best of everything that is to eat, at the
lowest price such goods can be sold. Come
to the QUALITY STORE.

One of the strangest farms in the
world is situated in Southern Cali
fornia. Ii(l4 feet below the level of the
sea. The place is known as Salton.
It is a salt farm of about 1,000 acres.
Here the salt lies as deposited by na
ture from six to sixteen inches indepth.
The salt farmer are busy harvesting
this crop the year round, and although
the harvest has continued for over
twenty years, during which time more
than 40,000 tons of salt have been har
vested, only ten of the 1,000 ucres of
the farm have been worked. The salt
is first plowed up in furrows; it is then
thrown into conical piles by men with
barrows, after which it is taken to the
reduction works nearly and put into
marketable condition. The work is
done by Mexicans and Chinese, the in
tense heat being more than Americans
ean endure. Maiden Merit.
