Many mighty enterprises have been built with but one of these great prin
cipals as their foundation. The success of the Underselling Store is due to the
combination of the three." HONEST QUALITY, ABSOLUTE HONESTY,
LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICES, and when one considers the tremendous quanti
ties of merchandise it takes to supply the demands of the Underselling Store we
can well afford to sell the very best at the lowest prices and this we do. What
the Underselling Store has saved many of its customers cannot be estimated and
friends do you suppose your case will be an exception? Not likely.

"1 can't go through with it!"
groaned a haggard,, desperate-faced
man on one side of a garden wall.
"Oh, you beautiful world!" lisped a
child In an Invalid chair on the other
side of the wall.
The man was Robert Dale, a city
merchant Ho sat in the shade of a
tree near the ruins of some burned
down residence. Despair was in hU
heart, his eyes were full of the mis
ery of a tortured spirit.
"There are only two ways," ho mut
tered, darkly. "There Is bankruptcy,
but that reads disgrace, and I could
not bear it. The other is this I"
He drew from his pocket a loaded
revolver and gazed at it fixedly. He
had come out to this secluded spot In
a quiet village to end it all with a
pistol shot. A proud man, a crushed
man, the last ditch seemed reached,
and he set his lips grimly.
The little child was Flora Easton, a
sweet-faced, angel-eyed girl of ten.
Tho chair was drawn up close to a
rustic table. Upon this were writing
materials. As she took up a pencil,
one could see from the slow, weak
and erratic movements of her hand
that she had only an Imperfect con
trol over its muscles.
Poor child! Young as she was,
Flora had known both pain and sor
row. She had seen her loving parents
broken hearted over the Budden death
of that other flower of he family, her
sister, for whom now her little mourn
ers clad In black, tho crickets sliding
through the grass, each evening piped
a solemn mass. Then Flora, too, had
been stricken. On the rare golden
threshold of Joyous girlhood she had
been deprived of the use of feet and
A patient father, a loving mother
had brought to her aid all that money
or medical skill could effect. It was
tho grand heroic spirit of the little
one herself, however, that had won
half the battle.
"Fine!" was little Flora's accus
tomed cheery reply when asked how
Bhe was getting along. "Never say
die!" she had oven taught the pet

optimism she had adopted as tho

creed and sustenance of her health
broken life she shed sunshlhe every
where. And dally, first with the movement
of a single finger, each hour gaining
some ground, she groped her way back
to her old activity.
On this especial morning her bravo
tittle heart thrilled, as for the first
timo she found that she could use her
hand to write a word. Hitherto even
the effort to produce a single letter
had been a hard task. Her eyes
sparkled, her soul seemed to burst its
bonds as a new strength infused her
pulses and nerves.
"Oh, papa, mamma!" she cried in
a wild fervor of excited delight, as al
most breathless with Joy and surprise
she completed a whole sentence on
the sheet of paper before her.
Hef parents came rushing anxiously
from tl)o house at the unusual cry.
"What Is it aro you ill, Flora?"
quavered' her mother
"Oh, no!" dissented tho agitated little
one. "Just think of it -I am getting
well, sure, papa! For see I have
written a whole sentence!"
And then little Flora uttered a cry
of direful dismay. Agreat breath of
wind had come along. It caught up
the loose sheets of paper, it scattered
them in every direction high in the
air, over among the sweet blooming
lilacs, even to the street, in front of
the grounds, and over the garden
Father and mother worked arduous
ly to collect the scettersd sheets.
Search as they would, however, they
could not find the one upon which
Flora had written.
"And it was the first real sentence
I have written since since I was
sick J" mourned Flora. "Why, think
of ltl plain as day and without tiring
my hand at all, I printed oat 'Never
Say Die!' "
"Well, my dear," said her father,
"very soon you will be able to write
Whole pages," and then &1 heart
overlowed with hopo at this Indica
tion jthat the little sufferer waB on tho
road to recovery.
In a week tho episode of tho miss
ing sheet of paper was forgotten. Lit
tle Flora, indeed, Improved. Day by
day she grew stronger. Always, was
she cheerful, happy, with a bright
csEtnco of sunshine that permeated
tho llfo of the whole village. Many a
burdened heart revived at a sight of
tho patient, loving little creature, who
saw only love and helpfulness as her
raro mission of life.
Click! tho man who Bat on tho
other sldo of that fateful garden wall
had been too absorbed In his misery i
to heed the souids about him. Ho
got ready tho deadly weapon. Then
It dropped suddenly from his nerve
less fingers. There had come float
ing down like a dove of peace, like a
heavenly messenger, a sheet of paper.
It fell directly In his lap. With awed
staring eyes Robert Dalo read the
rude, scrawling words:
"Never say die!"
A quick revulsion of feeling passed
over him. Whence had tho messago
come? No one was in sight. What
but Providence could have directed
this strange occurrence at the most
critical moment of his life! Ho burst
into tears, he dropped to his knees
and a new strength and impulso came
into his life.
Two years later little Flora and her
parents attended a meeting at tho
town hall of the village. It had been
announced some time previous that
Robert Dale, a wealthy city merchant,
had purchased the grounds beyond the
garden wall. A meeting had been
called whore he was to publicly donate
the land and $50,000 to build an or
phan asylum.
Mr. Dale arose and made tho formal
tender of his beneficence to tho town
Then his face grew grave and solemn,
as ho stated that he wished to tell
why he had been Impelled to his phil
anthropic action. He recited his ex
perience the day when that strange
message had come to him. He told
how, banishing his cowardly fears, he
had gone back to the city nerved to
combat his business difficulties and
had turned tho tide of disaster to one
of prosperity. 1
Then he took from a treasured cor-'
ner in his pocketbook a folded piece
of paper and passed It around among
the audience, the precious sheet of pa
per bearing the words:
"Never say die!"
The little scrap of paper passed
among two rows of seats. As it came
to Mr. Easton little" Flora uttered a
quick cry:
"un, papa, it's my writing. Don't
you remember that day in the gar
den?" The story spread like wildfire, and
soon Robert Dale learned of It. To
him the sveet little child whose sim
ple action had saved him from going
down a wreck, was as an angel of
mercy, sent to guide him in the dark
est hour of his career.
Not only for him, but for others who
had folt the gentle, hopeful Influence
of little Flora, the rare perfume of
her loving soul seemed to diffuse hope
and happiness everywhere.
As Robert Dalo left the Easton home
tho following day tho lofty flight of a
bird appeared to symbolize--the puri
fied aspirations of his better nature.
The lark was flying straight into the
face of tho glowing sun, its wild, glo
rious note echoing like a call to llfo,
to duty- Then it was lost to view, but
In the fervor of his grateful nature,
to Robert Dale It seemed as though
the lark was singing at heaven's gate!

Boy Scout Had Done Hl Dally Good
Turn and Reminder Was No
Longer Necessary.
Tho man with a shiny new motor car
stood beside it with a perplexed look
on his face. His hat and hair, and
apparently his temper, were slightly
"Can I help you In any way?"
It was a boy soout who spoke, and
not a large one at that, but he looked
eager and he spoke confidently.
"Do you know anything about that
thing?" asked the man, shoving his
foot out at the car.
"I have a motor car 'merit badge,"
said the scout, with quiet assurance.
"Well, If you can make It go you
are a good one," snorted the owner.
Together they went at the problem
and in a few minutes the scout bad
discovered the trouble and the engine
purred again as sweetly as ever.
"I certainly am obliged to you,
sonny," said the' owner as he fished a
half dollar out of his pocket.
"Oh, no, I can't take anything for
doing that," the boy explained, "that
was my dally good turn."
"Well, It certainly was a good turn,
but I wish you would accept some
thing for doing It. Jump in and I will
take you wherever you want to go."
"Thank you, but I was Just going
across the street there."
"You are bound not to let me d
you a good turn, aren't you?" laughed
the nian, "but I will get the start o
you yet Your tie hao a knot in the
end of it."
"Oh, yes, now I can take It out," the
scout replied. "You seo, every morn
ing I tie ni knoti In It to remind me to
do a good turn that day, and when X
have done it I take the knot out, That
Is what the manual tells us to do."
