and especially the farmers and mer

bond investing people to any extent;
but under the drive of patriotic enthu

This has extended to the utmost

homes. Governor Manning himself
ebowed the way by subscribing for
twenty bonds, one each for himself,
his wife, a daughte4, seven sons and
ten grandchildren. Following his lead,
Parents in every direction have in
vested in the bonds for their chil

added to in years to come.
Practically al the big corporations
of the state have arranged plans
whereby their employees could secure
the bonds by having small sums de.

Most everybody is familiar with the Irishman's
story. A merchant told him that a curry comb
was half feed, and the Irishman said "By faith,
I'll just take two and save the whole feed- bill."
Never before can we remember when it was
more necessary to economize on feed than now.
Keep your stock in good health by feeding Black
man's Medicated Salt Brick. We have on hand a
large, fresh lot. No trouble to feed, just put brick
in trough and the trick is done.
We also carry International Stock Food in pack
ages or loose in pails. We have many customers
who will have nothing else for hogs.
Conkey's Poultry Tonic is a good, honest poultry
food, 25c Rer package.
We have on hand a lot of Flour Pots in different
sizes, also some home-made churns. Churns have
been real scarce the last few months. .Call and
inspect our line.
