approved grazing allowances for
the National Forests during the coming
season provide for the pasturing
of 8.400.155 sheen. 2.120.145 cattle and
horses and 54.680 swine. Those figures
'^compared with hose of last year, reppresent
an approximate Increase of 111"
000 cattle and horses and a decrease
of about 200.000 sheep. Grazing ex
'ports of the Forest Service flguro
that for the purpose of range allotment
one cow Is equal lo Ave sheep.
Consequently the Increase of 111.000
cattle and horses Is held to be equivalent
to a net Increase of 355,000 sheep
' or of 71,000 cattle, over the total num.ber
of stock gnazed last year. The deJ
crease In the number of sheep Is said
to bo caused by the action of owners
who are dispensing with their
flocks In order to buy cattle, in most
T cases the reason is not because of
greater profits in handling cattle, but
because the rapidly changing conditions
of open ranges w here sheep have
been handled In the past,' make It increasingly
difficult to find feed for
this class of stock during the months'
when deep snow prevents grazing on i
the National Forests.
It Is stated that the capacity of the
National Forest range is gradually being
increased by protection against
overgrazing and Improved methods of
handling the stock. New areas are
also being tyrought into use by the development
of watering places while
the eradication of poisonous plants Is
reducing the losses suffered by the
stockmen.

How to Heal
Skin-Diseases
A Baltimore doctor suggests this
simple, but reliable and inexpensive,
home treatment for people Buffering
with eczema, ring
worm, rashes and
similar itching, burning
skin troubles. /
At nnv reliable
druggist's get a jar of V I
resinol ointment and
ft cake of resinol soap. /
These are not at all expensive. With
the resinol soap and warm water bathe
the affected parts thoroughly, until |
they are free from crusts and the skin
is softened. Dry very gently, spread
on a thin layer of the resinol ointment,
and cover with a light bandage?if necessary
to protect the clothing. This
Bhould be done twice a day. Usually
the itching and burning stop with the
first treatment, and the skin soon becomes
clear and healthy again.
Almost any soap will clean the skin
and hair. But those who want a soap

I Just Why She Said It I
I do not know, but that fine lady
really did say?
"THIS STORE IS JUST PERFECT"
?only she was mistaken. Nobody knows so much
about it as the writer, who surely knows how
much better the store is than it used to be, and
even more, he knows how much better it will be
because of the diligent study and earnest effort,
to every day improve something.
To be just as good as other stores is not rising up
to the ideal and endeavor many of our workers
have set for this store.
"What is your idea of a good store?" a kindly
critic may ask. The answer is? x

Here is a Chart that is an Object Lesson
of Leather Values and Shoe
Prices as they Exist Today
The largest shoe indicates the present shoe value at Hartley's today.
The next shoe shows the present values In the average store today.
The smallest shoe sho.vs the shoe value if it were based on present
wholesale costs of leather and present wholsale prices of shoes.
The reason that the largest shoe value is to be had
at Hartley's today is because the foresight of this
store enables us to offer over ten thousand dollars
worth of shoes, bought and paid for and delivered,
that came to us at the prices of last summer. With
this resource as a fortification the Hartley Store will
protect the public from exorbitant prices.
_ ? _ I
but Buy JNow to be Safe
Shoe prices in most stores have gone up 50 per
cent or more.
The average increase of the Hartley Store over old
low prices of two years ago is 331-3 per cent.
Our prices will go up no more while the present
sock holds out.
Buy all of your spring shoes now; buy all of your
summer shoes and lay them by.
Buy while there are plenty of shoes here. Buy
while you can be sure of getting the kind and sort you
want, and while pi ices are low.
We cannot make new purchases to replenish these
lots at anything like the present prices.
