A CAT IN A BA'G This phrase originated from an trick sometimes played by farmers on unsuspecting people. The coun tryman would come to town with what was inferred to be young pig in a bag. This he would offer for sale, and the unwary buyer would sometimes buy without look ing inside. The mail order catalog, though not an attempt to trick the buyer, occasionally does so chiefly be cause the buyer fails to properly inform himself a to the exact na ture of the goods. When they come, thev may be entirely as rep resented but not as expected, and disappointment naturally follows. Your local dealer places mer chandise before you, lets you see it and handle it. Ycu see what you are buying. Isn't that the safest way to buy? It's only one reason why you should Trade at home Support the town that suports you.

A section of our gospel team will hold services at the twelve-mile school south west of town, the speakers will be Harold Clark and Evert Johnson. All who can attend might go there and thus encourage them along. At the Angora meeting Friday there were eight that stood up for Christ and enlisted his service. More are ex pected to soon do likewise. Sunday evening we received two more into the church, making six for the month and sixty-eight for the three quarters of the pastoral year.

Under Alliance Nat l Dank Misfit Lumlber Costs Infinitely More All along the Atlantic Coast there are summer resorts with miles and miles of boardwalk, trodden by" millions of feet and drenched with surf and sea fog. Some of these broadwalks have been in service for 25 years, and are still sound and whole. The right wood in its proper place. Others have been replaced every few years. The wrong wood for the purpose; or the right wood wrongly specified. A good example of the need for an ex pert lumber service. - America uses more wood per capita than any other country in the world. As in the past, so in the future, much of the development of the Dox Butte coun--ty depends on its lumber supply. The typical citizen is accustomed to lumber. He naturally takes it for granted he knows all about it. It will pay him, both in his private in terests and as a taxpayer to check over what he really does know about choosing the most practical wood for a specific serv ice! It is something of a shock to the man Mho thinks of lumber vaguely in terms of "a nice clear board" to come face to face with Questions about the specific quality of the various kinds of wood. Which is best for strength? Which for exposure to weather? Which for in terior trim? Far-reaching questions make no mis take about that 1 Detailed, scientific knowledge of the species of lumber, their characteristics and availabilities, means durable and economi cal building today. Buy the Right Lumber for a certain use It will cost you less in the long run. The necessary knowledge can be had by any lumber purchaser who wants to make use of it. As substantial factors in the lumber business of Box Butte county, we want to put at your service the results of our ex perience and investigations covering many years. When you buy lumber for any purpose, no matter how much or how little you can be sure that you are receiving the wood best suited to your needs. 'Fowler Lumber Go. FLOYD LUCAS, Manager
