The most discriminating tastes can be absolutely satisfied. We buy close, dis count our bills and make prices to suit ourselves. We do not care what our competitors do or how they do it; we do as we please and allow them the same privilege. In other words, we mind our own business. If we want to sell our goods below cost it isn't cost ing anybody a cent but ourselves. We are not a "CUT RATE DRUG STORE." we are "OUR OWN RATE DRUG STORE." In short, nobody sets the pace for us; we trot In a class strictly by ourselves. When any one tells you we can't sell 12% cent cigars for 10 cents you can call them that short and ugly word, for we do—any brand you may call for. When they say we can't sell you any brand of five cent cigars seven for 2? cents they're the same thing over again. Come and see. If you don't say the St. Elmo is the best 121-3 cent clear Havana cigar you ever smoked, then we are one of those short words ourselves. Yours for "MT CITY—OAKLAND." OSGOOD BROS..

The Time to Stop Your Ad Is the Day Your Property Is Sold! ** If every one who had property to sell fol lowed the plan of advertising it continuously and peristently until it is sold, no one would ever feel "property poor." And, while occa sionally an ad might have to be repeated a score or more of rfmes, the cost of it would be but trifling compared to the advantage of find ing the buyer to whom that particular property would be a bargain at the price asked. All property in or near this city is salable. Thus the rule of advertising your property until it is sold is a safe and prudent one. Of course, the best time to begin is now— and, as suggested, the only time to stop is when your sale is made!
