Her Xmas Present
The giving of a life insurance policy to a wife as
a Christmas present is both sensible and sound in eco
nomic principle. Many presents are quickly perishable,
many are only glittering baubles, but a life insurance
policy that provides a lifelong income for the wife is of
lifelong endurance. A policy of that character is a
retainer of the home and the fireside circle. Without
it, Christmas joys, and indeed a mother's hopes and
plans for the happiness and the education of her chil
dren, may perish when the father goes.
Therefore, whatever else of usual Christmas giving
is done by the father, he should give, as his choicest
offering, not only that which assures the continuance of
Christmas joys, but also that which will make certain
the wellbeing of mother and children through all the
coming years.
The old reliable Mutual Life Insurance Co. of New
York is selling income policies, which provides a stated
monthly income for those left behind when the head of
the household is taken away.

A month ago most of us were planning to limit our
Christmas giving to the least that we could "get by

never did before.

There isn't a better present than a SONORA, It will
please day after day and year after year; there is no
other satisfaction like that of having such a fine musical
instrument as the Sonora in the home.
The Sonora is a remarkable instrument so accurately
and perfectly does it reproduce both the human voice
and the most delicate shades of tone color as to defy
detection from the original voice or instrument.
The SONORA is a talking machine with all the
scratching and screeching eliminated. It brings to your
home, not an imitation of the great voices or instrumen
tal music of the master, but the REAL music itself. It
is a perfect reproducing machine with the "mechanics
left out.
We want you hear it and judge for yourself. This is
your invitation to come to our store at any time and hear
the latest records. There will be no obligation to buy.
We want Gem county people to hear and know the SO
NORA. We will glady demonstrate it. Plenty of easy
comfortable rockers in which to rest while enjoying a
real musical treat.
