To the Woman who has never worn
A Bischof Model
want to tell you
a little about the
idea back of Dischof
models.
The makers of Bischof
models get the Paris and
Berlin styles but they
don't stop there.
They believe there is
a higher standard than
pure style that is style
and service combined.
What's fashionable in
Paris is studied and the
ideas carried out, the
effect reproduced but in
serviceable, practical
suits the kitul Ameri
can life of today de
mands. The taste expressed,
the discrimination used
in selecting' only what
is suitable has made
Bischof models national
ly popular. It is a sig
nificant fact that the
leading Fashion Journal
after a close study of
the taste of American
women, sketched a Bis
chof model for their Fall
Fashion Number.
Come iii and see the
very newest designs. There are some splendid
. alues for

MAKE NO CONCESSIONS.
A Cumberland man onco said to us
that tho mutual telephone movomont
in Fulton nud Obion counties was "all
talk." He spoke the truth. Thut Is
about all any good telephone system
amounts to talk. It looks now like
tho mutual talkers will bo talking
over mutual wire lu a very short
tluio.
Tho Great Public llouefuotor ("hi
thu light of its present Information")
is watching with unpleasant forbad
lug. Coming events are casting their
suudows. Tliuy realize that tho mu
tual growth Is not only substautlul,
but beyond their control.
At ono time. Indications were
strong that Hickman would have to
be good. She spent much of her
nergy In lighting legal buttles with
thu Cumberland tho latter triumph
ed. A ruUe of rules brought ou this
difficulty, but wo wore shown by law
thut rates, other than Uiuso specified
in churters, could bo Increased. Hut
public seutiiuent, when onco aroused,
is a hard think to overcome. Out of
tho ashes of her defeat, Hickman rose
In thu strength of her progressive
nuss and begun to build u system of
her own the one sure wny of free
ing herself. Oblou county soon fol
lowed her example. The Cumberland
wont bufore the directors of the Ob
lou system with nn ultimatum em
bodying the mauy gurerous con
cessions and principle to which the
company Is heir. An account of
tho meeting, as given by the Obion
Democrat, foltows:
"Tho directors of the Oblou Coun
ty Tolephoiie Company met with .Mr.
Fostor Hume hist Saturday by up
polntment to discuss n deul whereby
tho local company would bo ubaudoii'
turn, and that tho company would Ioso
$50,000 before they would alter their
decision. Ho said If tho subscribers
were not pleased with the service be
tween tho different towns In tho
county they could pay toll nnd uso
better lines.
"The local pooplo made no unreas
onablo demands on the Cumberlands,
and wcro met by Mr. Humo with any
thing but tho proper spirit. In con.
sequence several subscribers have
signified Inclinations to take their
phones out at once and not wait uu
til tho local company gets ready for
service. Tho Democrat- would have
preferred to havo only ono exchange.
but Indications aro that the Cum
berlands are going to raise their rates
but tho Indications are that tho Cum-
Just as high as possible. If Mr. Hume
properly represented them at tho
meeting Saturday."

A NEW COTTON.
On his farm Just north of town Dan
Comfort, who is a pracUcal farmer,
and a successful one too, Is experi
menting with some San Domingo cot
ton seed sent him by his nephew, Dan
Griffith, of Chicago. Saturday Mr.
Comfort presented tho Mlssouriau
with a stalk about threo feet long, of
this now cotton, bearing branches and
leaves and looking very thrifty, but
there were no. signs of squares or
blooms, nud tho reason there were
none Is from tho fact that they never
appear until the stalk reaches a treo
shape and tho period of maturity of
tho treo, then It produces bolls and
silky Hut four or five Inches long.
The treo bears year after year and
never dies out and requires no re
planting thus producing a continuous
crop. We will watch Dan's now aud
phenomenal cotton plant with great
intei est and anxiously await tho tree.
