of this nation are looking to you for
food and the price of meal is almost pro
hibitive, especially to the working peo
ple, who are compelled to have it in or
der to successfully perform the labor
required of them.

During a colloquy in the Senate be

Simply a Funeral.
We have been asked if a republican

"Big Ben Bargains" Are Ad
vertised by J. 5. Stanifer.
Sale Begins Saturday.
This issue carries elsewhere an an
nouncement of a Public Sale of J. S.
Stanifer's stock of Clothing, Shoes and
Furnishings.This is advertised as some
thing more '.han an ordinary Clearance
Sale. Mr. Stanifer says the bargains
offered will eclipse all jirevious efforts
along this line, because he is compelled
to sell at least $10,000's worth of bis
stock before March 1st, in order for him
to make some important changes in his
business, which cannot be carried out
until the stock is reduced a great deal.
An unusual offer of $1 cash to each of
the ten persons who are first to enter
the store when tbe sale opens at 9 a. m.
on tomorrow, Saturday morning, Feb,
15th, has created considerable interest
and there is sure to be a large crowd on
Another feature of the sale which will
make it an object to the people to at
tend the sale every day is what Mr.
Stanifer terms bis "Big Ben Bargains"
which will be offered every day for one
half hour only. Every day something
different will be offered at a price said
to be below wholesale in every instance
from 10 to 10:30 a. m. only. Mr. Stani
fer explains that this will be done, sim
ply to attract tig crowds of people ev
ery day whom be frankly stales he ex
pects will buy many other goods too,
once they are in the store and see the
unusual values on every hand.
CoL Walton's Dilemma.
President-elect Wilson has consented
to succumb to custom and to wear a
high bat that used to be called a "bee-
gum" on the day of his inauguration.
Col. Will Walton has been appointed by
Thomas Nelson Page, the author, to be
one of the reception committee. There
fore Col. Walton is in the middle of a
bad fix. The colonel has plenty of
money to indulge in the frivolities of
life, but he has been too busy fighting
shams and frauds all his life to pay very
much attention to personal adornment.
A slouch hat and sack coat, necessarily
with trousers, has always meant the
height of Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes
with Walton. But he has allowed him
self to go on dress parade. Now be is
up against it. He's got to follow the
leader, and if Woodrow and Thomas
Nelson are dressed up, so must tbe Col
