It's economy to buy Occident Flour, even if it does
cost a few cents more than ordinary flour.
Why? Well, you will always know jtist how
the bread and cake are going to turn out.
Your biscuits will never be soggy, 'our cake
, will never "fall" if it's made of Occident flour.
A batch 'of soggy brca3 can't even be used for toast or bread
pudding. It has to be thrown out that's all. And of
jf course that means a waste of money and time, to say
nothing of your strength. Occident Flour goes further,
too. So, we repeat, it's economy to buy Occident.
The best part all the nutriment and none of the waste of the best! hard
wheat is used in making Occident hpecial
Patent Flour. Any cheaper grade of wheat
or even the same best wheat less carefully
milled would not make Occident Flour.
This extreme care on our part means a big
saving on your part.
Ji-t try a smalt sack of Occident Flour ami if you aren't satis-
fiel after vour lirst baking tell your Krocur about it

"About ten years ago. when I was
living in n village In Illinois." said the
red headed man, "I had buslnesB to
call me to London. My getting ready
for the trip was the talk of the place,
and a day or two before I started I
was visited by a farmer who was nn
Englishman and who said.:
" 'If you are going to London would
yon mind seeing my brother Jim and
telling him his brother Tom over here
is well and doing well and wants him
to write of tenor?"
"'What is your brother's other
name?' I ashed.
"Smith, sir Jim Smith.'
"I told him I would keep nn eye out
for the Smith family, and he thanked
me and withdrew. In due time I ar
rived in London from Liverpool, and
as I took a cab at the depot I queried
of the driver:
" 'Do you happen to know any one In
London named Smith?'
"'I'm n Smith piyself, sir,' he re
plied. "'Hut a Jim Smith.'
'"I'm a Jim Smith.'
"'But n Jim Smith who has pot a
brother Tom in America.
"'I've got one, sir.
" 'But a Jim Smith whose brother
Tom In America Is a farmer In Illi
nois and wants to be written to of
tencr.' "'That's me again, sir, and here's
the proof of it. I'm just going to mail
him this 'ere letter.'-
"And hang nie if he didn't show me
a letter ready for mailing and prove
his case on the spot. He was the first
man I had spoken to in London, and
lie was the Jim Smith I had been told
to look out for." Chattanooga Times

nesday. evening the trustees so ex
pressed themselves. They voted to
pass the amendments to franchise
rights recently granted to William H.
Downing, representing . the United
Light and Power company. These
amendments were asked, by J. -A.'
O'Neal, who represents outside parties
who contemplate the purchase of the
United company's plant-and equip
ment. A member of the East Moline
council expressed the belief that Ea-.t
Moline would take similar action on
the amendments. The rumor in Siivis
is that O'Neal represents the public
utilities stockholders of the east the
same menv.wlio control the power
plant here and the street car lines of
the thiee cities and suburb. The
rumor has it that these men will build
a large power plant near Colona and
among other things it will furnish
power for the operation of interurban
cartas far as Geneseo. When the
merger people secured their franchise
to operate in East Moline two years
ago it was'-stipnlated that the line
should be extended to Geneseo within
five years, unless some other company
should build from Geneseo to Siivis
