PASSED FEOM THIS LIFE James Penberthy died suddenly at about 8 o’clock on Saturday morning, Dec. 19, His death was wholly unexpected as he was in his usual health up to a very short time before the end came.

The White House, Mineral Point, Wis.: Have decided to make “The White House" my headquarters this season. Will have the greatest variety of real Christmas Novelties ever displayed any where. Tell all the children and their parents to get their holiday goods at The White White House. SANTA CLAUS. The Home Provisioner. Sometimes it is the man —more frequently the woman —who provides, or rather purchases, the needs of the home so far as provisions <ro. Wom en, as a rule, are better bargain g-etters, but it should be said, once for all, that bargains in food stuffs are not to be encouraged. With all our Pure Food Law prohibitions, there are still “grades” in food of all kinds, and the poorer qualities, besides being stale, are sadly lacking in nutriment which we should expect to get from our daily food. And it should be remembered that really nu tritious food will go much farther than the infer ior* kind, so that the question of extra cost is largely eliminated. Take the standard groceries, for instance, such as flour, sugar, butter, tea, coffee, milk, cer eals and canned g'oods, the better the qualities the less of them need we use, and the more nutrition and satisfaction we get. Even if we do pay a lit tle more for thess grades we are not losing any thing, but really gaining in everything worth gaining. The regular customer at THE CASH GRO CERY HOUSE will readily understand this line of argument, because she knows that she always gets the best and at the fairest prices. The James Brewer Cos.
