We have secured the exclusive agency for tlie celebrated
"Camel Skin" line of mens' and boy's footwear. This line
cannot be surpassed in wear, fit and appearance, and to
gether with our famous "Buffalo Calf" lines, makes a com
bination hard to beat. The "Camel Skin" shoes made in
Blucher and straight lace, single or double soles, gusset
tongues, and reinforced with extra back stays and sewed
with extra quality of silk, reduces the chances of ripping
to a minimum. Try a pair of these for your next pair
of work shoes.

Cement is the popular material with
which to replace the old and worn
out board sidewalks. The popular
man to do the work is Wils Staley.
If Staley has charge of the work, it's
a guarantee that it will be attended
to right.
Chris Haderer has completed the
Gene Johnson house and if an honest
job was ever done, this is one of them.
Mr. Haderer has the reputation of
practicing honesty in all his work
and the people have found it out. In
consequence, he has all the work he
can do, contracted, for months ahead.
Mr. John A. Nash was very much
pleased with the surgical ability prac
ticed by the Rochester, Minnesota,
surgeons in his case, and reports
patients coming to the infirmary from
all over the world. They are eminent
men of the country, and their ser
vices are in great demand.
The reminiscences of bygone days
were all gone over last week with our
Clerks of the Courts, Charles White,

C. R. I. & P. depot in which he ex
pects to manufacture c-ment blocks,
bricks and other specialties along
that line. He has engaged the ser
vices of Mr. Bert Eaton, an exper
ienced cement man. If there is any
thing that's first class John is after
it. The cement industry is in its in
fancy, but must be respected.
What have women contributed to
ward the upbuilding of our city?
Many, many things,—-yea, more than
can be enumerated in the brief space
at command. There was a time in
the history of the world, 'way back
in Paul's day when woman was
looked upon with disfavor,—that was
the unchristian era. Today the situa
tion is vastly different, and instead of
woman being inferior to man, she has
proven herself to be his equal,—if not
his superior.—in many of the virtues
that make good citizenship.
Another Bid From Smutney For Your Business

pose you were to see a bunch of silver dollars rolling toward you.
Would you run from them? Then go to Smutney's.
The women of Audubon have labor
ed earnestly and long in an endeavor
to maintain truth and sobriety in the
home, teaching their sous and daugh
ters that these are cardinal virtues,
and are to be prized far greater than
rubies. They have recognized the
fact that home life is the foundation
of all life, aud that municipal, state
and national existence is pure. The
women of Audubon have been the
silent force,—the undercurrent, that
has been working so effectively thru
the years, the result of which has
meant the ushering in of social con
ditions that are extremely wholesome

owns real estate. Seven years ago, he

Nothing in this world gives us
more pleasure than to see our young
men and women so far mindful of the
conditions they have to meet, that

Luse, daughter of our respected citi

ship, honored by being elected to a
membership of one of the societies of
the Slate University at Iowa City.
Miss Luse is certainly to be congratu
lated for her persistent efforts by
which she has ascended the ladder of
fame, as also are the lady's parents
for the early training that prompted
this noble effort. Go on, Miss Eva,
and gather in the honors that are in
