nice business. Our Sturgis

stocks also of select goods and
lhe beautiful sunshine and cot

pleasant and active. Everybody
seemed busy and happy. We
have a good county and all its

to get a majority on the first
Mr. Noel's view on this subject
is of more than passing interest,
for he has visited sixty-six of the
seventy-seven counties in the

months, and ought to be able to

the situation. —Ex.

Letter to A. W. REYNOLDS.
Starkville, Miss.
Dear Sir; If you could get the
exclusive sale of a coal that
would give double heat and cost
no more, you’d jump at it,
wouldn't you?
You’d control the trade for a
hundred miles!
Devoe is like that among
paints; a short ton is as good as
a long one of any paint you can
name; a gallon is worth more
than two of many a popular
Suppose you have painted
your house about once in three
years ever since it was new; you
buy the same number of gallons
Devoe, have a third of it left,
and it wears six years. Count
your costs.
$1.75 a gallon for paint; $3.50 a
gallon for putting it on; you sav
ed 5 gallons; $26.25 on this job.
But you save the whole job of
three years hence:' about $75.
Put ’em together: SIOO.
Can‘t reckon so accurately sa
that; but you see how it goes.
Paint isn‘t alike any more than
coal. How much more is coal
worth than 1-4 slate?
Yours truly,
P. W. Devoe &Cos.,
16 New York.’
P. S. Yeates & Wallace sell
our paint.
