The Calumet Baking Powder Com
pany of Chicago which advertises
with us from September to June of
each year states. that us the result of
Mountain Advocate advertising their
sales have greatly Increased in this
territory. Persistent advertising Is
sure to bring results, us Is well
known' to such concerns as the Cal
umet Company. They have an A No.
1 product, as every housewife will
testify, but It takes advertising to
bring it to tho attention of the pub
lic. Tho fact that the Advocate
specializes on local news makes It
the more valuable since every mem
ber of tho family likes to read it.
The picnic given by the Modern
Woodmen of America and the Amer
ican Legion lust Saturduy drew u
big crowd and was greatly enjoyed.
Owing to the fact that Captain Wal
ter Carr, the aviator for the Jelllco
Aero Club, decided against tho Fair
Grounds as not offering a sufllciently
large clear space from which to rise,
the picnic was transferred to ground
on Manchester Street and from this
place Captain Carr made constant
trips, many of our citizens taking
advantage of the chance to get near
er heaven than they ever did before.
The cost was ten dollars a fly but
the sport had such a faclnatlon that
there was no lack of flyers.
The unevenness of the ground pre
vented some of the sports from be
ing pulled off but the greasy pole
and the greased pig which lacked a
starting crank (at least no one could
find It) were In evidence.
Tile baby show proved Interesting
with Messrs. Messamore, Charlie
Cole, and other prominent citizens
acting as pacifiers. These aforesaid
citizens, either from thoughtlessness
or from Ingrained wickedness, tried
to inveigle Barhourvllle's two most
useful and honored citizens, namely
tho Mayor and the Editor, into act
ing as judges. Fortunately they had
the sand to turn a deaf ear to the
blandishments of those who would
have ruined their future usefulness
In the community and they still re
tain the respect of the ladies. How
ever, our private opinion Is that all
the babies deserved the first prize
and we recommend that in the fu
ture as many first prize? ins there
are babies be offered. Vse Mayor
gives his official sanction to this opin
There was plenty to eat and drink
everyone was good natured and the
committees deserve praise for mak
ing such a success of the affair.

The ideal tread for an automobile DEMOCRATS NOMINATE
tire Is one that can be used with GOV. J. M.
equally good results on any wheel,
either front or back. Given such a
tire a motorist need carry only one
spare, and his car Is always evenly
balanced no matter what tire chang
es he makes. But it one style of
tread is used on the front wheels
and another on the rear, the motor
ist will usually carry tw.o spares,
one of each type. Having two types
furnishes further complication when
it is desired to shift partly worn
tires . from the hard-working rear
wheels to the front wheels In order
to get a few thousand more wear
out of them before they go to tho
scrap heap. The non-skids used on
the rear may not he suited for front
wheel Purposes,
In designing Its Royal Cord tiro,
the United States Tire Company had
this problem In mind, and developed
a tread design sultablo for any wheel
Tho- simplicity of this arrangement
appeals alike to the tiro user and
the tire dealer. The user does not
have to bother about special tlro3
for" front or rear wheels, and the
dealer finds it unnecessary to carry
so large a stock. United States

the aforesaid excitement commences
for the small boy and other little
