The move is now well under way to
John L. Dorris. one of the llnyti
grade imil fence tin.1 public sijuare, and ' merchants, has received the following
thu work will i-orttiinly be done. Goo. letter from Win. H. Moore Dry Goods
Dorris has tliu list, and every one j Company of Memphis, and from an
who has not daeed his or her name iidvi-rtisiny point of view it is so good
on the list is urged to do so. This , that we reproduce it. Ih'iv it in!

" 'Speak nothing hut good of the
dead a hunch from the lip-, of the
wise! Let nothing hut praise he said,
of the merchant who won't advertise.
Ivct him rest in the gloom of his More,
and sleep on his cobwebby hed, while
customers pass by his door, and say
nothing hut good of the dead! The
man who's contented to cot. while the
world keeps a-moving ahead, is lit tor
the luirial spot, so speak nothing hut
"food ol the dead.'
Today to supul.v public needs and
to Jill their own pockets individual ex
ploiters are sweeping away the forest
three times as fast as they grow. This
means that nianv of the hardwoods
uiv already gone , that thutotal supply
of hardwood which used to furnish the
better grade furniture fittings and so
on, will he exhausted for commercial
purposes within (51 teen years, and that
the entire wood supply of the country
will not last longer than twenty-five
or thirty years. It is as though some
foreign invader or some deadly pent
should suddenly appear on our shores
and ravish the entire forest area of
the country, at ihe rate of two states it
year, until every tree were gone. Do
you itnagaine for one insttmt that as
the years go by your interest in this
great (jueslion will become less person
al or less vital, than it is today.
High values placed on land that
the Government seeks lo condemn for

Missourian: The ellort to have the
revision ol the laws of the state made
by a committee of experts under the
direction ol a commission ol lawyers
lias proven a failure. The Attorney
General bus decided that the salary of
"Mo a day promised to the lawyer-, can
not be paid under the constitution as
io is all that can lie allowed. The
Publishing Co. has thrown up its
Wo. 00 I contract because tne committee
refused to allow thein to (juot- from a
publication of their own as authority.
So the whole thing is a failure. It
may I eurranyil by the General Assem
bly by the appointment of a revision
committee limiting their numbers and
; making the compensation.
THE PROOF OF THE PUDDD1NG
Having been led to believe the proof of the "pudding is
in the eating thereof," I wish to say the goods listed below
speak for themselves. This county is filled with intelligent
people who know what they want to eat or don't want to eat,
without the advise or help of a guardian angel. Try these
goods and be convinced. You know a good article.
Thousands of Packages of PENNY
GARDEN SEED, each
Coal Oil, per gallon
Flake Hominy, per pound
Rice, per pound
22 oz. Bottle Pickles
Good Corn, per can
3 Pound Canned Tomatoes, per can
Canned Peas, per can
2 Pound Canned Apples, per can
2 Pound Canned Kidney Beans, per can
Canned Oysters, per can
Eastern Granulated Sugar, 1 6 pounds for
Beans, hand picked, per pound
Seeded Raisins, per package
Roast Coffee, per pound
Everything in proportion. Don't complain
about the hard times. Buy your goods right, then there
will be no hard times.
