It baa been said of Woodrow Wilson that he differs from many other
politicians in that he never kl:ed a baby for the purpose of winning
a vote. This doesn't mean that Wilson isn't fond of babies; In fact he
spends a cood deal of tlma with them, even In these ousy days of the
campaign. In the accompanying; photograph he Is seen greeting one of

The Dwight tar and Herald asks
this question, and then remarks:
Well, we 'should say It does! Last
week a merchant advertised fresh
dairy butter for sale. The compositor
substituted an "h" for a "d" and the
ad read: "Fresh Hairy Butter for
Sale."' A smart barber called up the
grocer and offered to shave the titter
at standard rates. The erocer got mad
and licked the barber, breaking his
ncs3 and otherwise disfiguring him so
that he was compelled to call upon the
doctor, who charged him a tenner for
the services rendered. The next day
the barber met the editor on the
street and threw a brick at him, giv
ing him a close shave. In his efforts
to get away, the pen-pusher fell down,
tearing his trousers eo badly on one
side that he was necessitated to buy
a new pair; also the editorial shears,
which were in his hip pocket, pene
trated his anatomy so that the services
cf a eurgeon were required. And all
the result of one little ad. Who asked,
"does it pay to advertise?"

Albany for a soodal visit. . They were
a lively bunch and they came to a live

Has advantages over every other safety razor on
the market. Adjustable in five positions covering
every angle possible in both the old-fashioned and
the safety razor. Note in large illustration that the
handle is set off centre, closer to the regular edge, so that
in shaving with either side the hand is held in the same
position. CLARK'S NOX-ALL, having no removable
parts, is the easiest razor to clean. Self-adjusted for close
or regular shave and many other exclusive features.
We have figured that to market CLARK'S NOX-ALL
safety razor in the ordinary way means an expenditure of
from $500,000 to $1,000,000, covering a period of two or three
years. We have decided to make our initial expenditure in six
months. To do this we take $3.50 off the price of every sample
razor, expecting that the many thousands who take advantage of
this offer will speak of CLARK'S NOX-ALL RAZOR to their friends.
In this way we will obtain enormous publicity. Get one today. It will
do great service while you are on your vacation. If not satisfied, your money will be returned.
We have the best $5.00 safety razor ever made, but realize that we must get a number in actual use
before we can hope to sell them in large quantities. For this reason we have decided to place sample sets
of CLARK'S NOX-ALL RAZORS actual $5.00 value at this noinin.il price. After this sampling campaign
this same sample set will cost $5.00. If you have any doubt rcsarding this offer take this coupon to the
Clark dealer named below and he will show you the complete set in its handsome genuine leather case.
Mail orders also filled when coupon accompanies cash.
This offer good only when accompanied by coupon and for 10 days from date of this issue.
Our Proposition . $l-50 and the attached coupon entitles you to one sample uor (complete out-
fit). One coupon must accompany the order for each and everv razor. Satis
faction guaranteed or your money refunded. The quality will speak for itself, as razor and blades are
made by CLARK, well known as "THE SAFETY RAZOR BLADE KING." Extra blades (24 edges) 85c

Mr. Bryan to Newlyweds
You don't have to agree with Mr. Bryan politically to admit that
he is right when in speaking of newly married couples he says:
"With the vast majority of young meu and young women the
life plan includes the gradual a'cumulatlon of a fortune. The first
rule that they need to learn Is to live within their means. The hus
band and wife should make their plans together; try enter heartily
upon their work; she is aa willing to sacrifice as he is to labor
and her willingness to save is as Important a factor in their success
as is his ability to earn."
We hope that all the brides and bridegrooms in this vicinity will
take Mr. Bryan's wise advice, and we want to add that nothing will
so help you to become systematic in your domestic economy as, to
open a savings account with ta.3 strong bank.
