THE GREAT TOBACCO WAR.
Many of our readers know of the war
existing between the manufacturers of
plug chewing tobacco, but few, perhaps,
are familiar with the cause.
For years some manufacturers have
been making enormous profits by giving
consumers a small piece of plug for 10
cents. Recently a very large manufac
turer, seeing that the time had come for
better things, has placed a new brand
called Battle Ax on the market, which
gives the consumer a very large piece of
most excellent quality for the same price.
This has raised a great storm among
those who are hurt by It. but it gives joy
to those who use the goods. In Battle Ax
they get a greater quantity for their
money, while the quality Is equal to the
finest of other brands. This has naturally
bad the effect of greatly decreasing the
business of those who have held to the
old way. and it has materially curtailed
their enormous profits. On the other hand
Hattie Ax now taxes the resources of
three large factories, which, by running
night and day, are still unable to make
the goods fast enough to satisfy the en
thusiastic demand.
The people want a good thing and the
most if it that they can get for the price.
The manufacturers who do the best by
them will get their trade. Their rivals
naturally do not like it. They raise a
mighty howl, but the AX will cut them
down.

BAR-LOCK nPEWRITEET
Writes every letter In sight of operator.
Does most of the work In writing AU
TOMATICALLY and yields in the time
thus saved additional work.
It acts as if it studied the convenience
of the operator at every turn, and there
by lightens his labor and renders him
capable of doing more.
It has a knack of keeping well and is
always ready at critical or other times.
These are some of the reasons why it is
different from all other writing machines.
