his thanks to the crowd and to the peo

few words related the clean campaign

extended the best wishes of the town
to Mr. and Mrs. Owings. We regret

Stomach means weak Stomach nerves
always. And this is also true of the
Heart and Kidneys. Tho weak nerves
are instead crying- out for help. This
explains why Dr. Shoop's Restorative

The public has been led to believe
through newspaper reports that the
price of Diamonds will be lower.
97 per cent of the Diamonds mined
are in the hands of two corporations
the Dee Beers and the Premier Mining
companies. The products of these two
companies are sold through the London
Rough Diamond Syndicate. The finan
cial standing of this syndicate is beyond
question. It stands pledged to maintain
the price of Diamonds as it did during
the panic of 1893 and 1894, also during
the depression of 1903 and 1904; so the
