They don't seem to find any large amount of complaint on the goods but they simply don't seem to be able to get this flour out. Now the time has come when we are going to see if the people of the country adjacent to Liberal are not willing to use home made goods if assured that they getting an article as good as is shipped in. You know there is always a great howl made about patronizing home industries. We are now giving you that opportunity. We have been giving the grocers the opportunity for six months. We have aiv experienced miller and are paying him as good a salary as any mill in the country and we have as good machinery and process as any mill in the country and also have as good wheat as any place in Kansas and we are making as good an article as any shipped in and we guarantee every sack. We are going to give the farmers and flour users of the country around Liberal a chance to buy their flour at wholesale price. We can afford to sell our goods at home for less money than by going off in a new terri tory and are GOING TO DO IT. We know that the people are not going to pay fifteen cents per sack more for their flour if they can help it and we are now going to give them an opportunity. We are going to sell our flour at the mill door to any one who comes after it and guarantee it eqtfal to any flour sold in Liberal at the following prices: Best Patent "Pride of Liberal" $2.10 per hundred. "Lily" Second Patent $2.00 per hundred All Mill Feed at Market Prices Bring your wheat to the mill and exchange if you wish or we will give you all or a little more for your good milling wheat than any other elevator. Come in and see us and we will give you a square deal. We expect to be a farmers mill from now on and put our goods out direct to the people!

The Interstate School Man Rives the following as essential qualifica tions of a good teacher: A good teacher is one who has a fair educa tion and a determination to get a better one: one who is resolved to know what is going on In the world; one who is ready to do cheerful, hope ful, persistent hard work; one posses sed by strong common sense; one who lias all these reinforced, and backed .by a determination to succeed.

Between them they had a capital of 89 centb. . Last week they incorporated their buslnass with a capital stock of $100,000. . These boys wished to go on a fishing trip, but their 89 cents was not enough to pay the" expenses. They hit upon the idea of earning money by making jam and selling it from house to house. They invested their eighty nine cents in sugar and ja-s. The fruit they obtained by picking it on the shares. They cleared $8.3 and went on the tishing trip. After grad uating from school they took up the same line of work and are now doing a very profitable business. Their suc cess came from the fact that they made clean) wholesome jam, using only good materials and they put it up in attractive form. While on the train going to Kismet one morning to visit schools we heard a traveling man say that the success of one of Liberal's business men was due to the same fact making clean whole some articles and using only good materials.
