DEAR CUSTOMER:- Santa Clans is coming soon, and the children will all need a few nickles and dimes, and we have arranged a little surprise party, not only for them, but for you as well. This is the most original and most carefully thought out of all our profit shar ing schemes, and we are sure will meet with the most enthusiastic support. Just think of a Bonus Creek amounting to G per cent of your purchase. What a saving this will be. Of ourse you understand that the greater the volumn of busi ness, the larger dividends we can pay, and this 6 per cent Bonus Chock is based upon a $40.00 volumn, but we realize that some of our customers will not be able to reach this volumn, and we have arranged to take care of you just the same. If the dividendsoffered are not great enough to appeal to you, give the Bonus Check to the children, and you will see that it means Christmas nickles and dimes to them. If you reach the required volumn, you cash in at about Q per cent, but should you not reach this amount, give the checks to the children, and we will cash them at 2 per cent of the purchase price, as shown by the check, or checks, as the case may be. This is strickly a Christmas party, and the checks will be no good unless used prior to that time. The Bonus Check will be issued with each cash purchase, and for the amount of the purchase, and will count accordingly. I Remember that this is no premium offer, but a cash o.fer, and is absolutely the first thing of the kind ever offered the public, so far as we know. Its strictly a busi ness proposition and you can't afford to miss it. Its a winner. ' LET US BE YOUR SANTA CLAUSE. Sincerely, HOUSTON HARDWARE & FURNITURE CO. Houlka News.

ABOUT JEFF DAVIS. By Savoyard Washington, July 27. Given a fool with a pen and you have such disgusting stuff as this from the Pittsburg can jail before Huerta was copped in El Paso was Jefferson Davis." There is a man in Tennessee named Yancey. He paid attention to the foregoing in one of his brilliant editorial in the Nashville Banner. It is meant that the south at Monterey? To be sure he does not. Does he know that it was Jefferson Davis who not only saved the day, but the American army, at Buena Vista ? Certainly not. Now, I'm a-gwine to tell you about that.
