It brightens storesmakes them
attractive-, makes them vie with one

Today you go to a store, aik for
advertised goods and you know what
these will cost you.
Your mother and her mother
shopped differently. They priced
goods, objected to the price, .cre

"The corporations of the state are
greatly under-assessed but unlike the
small property owners, we hear com
plaints trom them. However, wepan
uot go after the corporation and pick
them out one by one. but on the con

give the small property owner justice
aud raise corporations where they be
long and this will equalize the rail
"Auqther thing we are going to do,
and have already taken legal advice
on, Is to compel the corporations to
give local assessing ollicers a sworn
statement of all their properties par

Illinois fanner u Is spending his
summer here. It is the fourth in a
series of great conferences that have
been drawing audiences, rqqning Into

can afford to take a well earned vaca
tion just like other people. Ray View

our ways are rotten. And when our
fathers played the game they heard

in glory. Their fathers heard the
same old bunk while yet the land
was youthful, alarmists deal in verbal
junk more eloquent than truthful.
It was the same In ancient Greece
and Egypt, too, I'm thinking; alarnir

the state was sinking. And so the
prophet or despair can't get me much
excited, let hiiji rear up and paw the

Mecosta county, which closed Its
saloon record of unhappy and tragic
memory pn'the tirst day of ?tlay of the
present year for a period of twenty -four
months at, least, is now sharing
in the comparatively happy change
that has come to other local option
counties. The Hig Rapids Tioneer,
commenting recently on the peace
and quietness pf the countv aud Its
present freedom from crimes and nr
rests, makes this reference to the
present situation: "Any one who
thinks local option does not reduce
expenes-at the county jail will have
a different opinion after a talk with
Sheriff Henderson. ,lir;i thinks tho
new order is bad for the sheriff's fees,
and thtyt In a .short time, If the coun
ty stays dry the supervisors will be
obliged to place this otfice on a salary
as tho fees will not be sufficiently
large to attract any worthy candidate.
The sheriff is paid $3 a day a.tid ex
penses for time actually spent. But
this does not in itself run up into
money very fast, as the sheriff can
have work for only a small part of his
time. Where the sheriff made up was
on the board of prisoners ami the fees
connected with making arrests.
Now this Is mostly done away with,
ahd only the pay for the actual time
put In counts."
