Keep Yourself Well—Walk
Anions the helps to health is exercise.
Docs tl'at mean buying golf sticks and fancy clonics
•ml pavmg fat fees to a country club or an athletic
Not necessarily. They're all right if you can afford
'em. A mighty fine game is golf. So Is tennis or squash.
Most any game is good that gets you into the open air,
working vour muscles. Running a lawn mower or shoveling
anou is excellent for its own sake, to say nothing of its
•one) saving value. The Y. M. C. A. gym is line, too.
The little you pay for a membership card Is a tiptop
Kach of these, however, is of limited value and requites
you to go to a place.
There's a wav to exercise which costs nothing, requires
no special toggcrv. can be tried any time, anywhere, is first
class siK.rt, keeps a fellow's muscles In superb trim and
saves a pot of money in the course of the year.
It's to walk. Walk to work in the morning. Walk home
at night. Walk when chance offers during the day.
Street cars generally are stuffy and the fare counts up.
Autos are for the rich. But every man and every woman can
travel at will on shanks' ponies. The only cost is shoe
wear, and you save this ten times over in reduced bills from
the druggist and doctor.
Riding is mostly a habit. For each time that you ride
beeause you have to. don't you ride a do/en times just be
cause you've gotten out of the way of wa king.
Our sturdy dads walked. Walked miles. Never wsited
for street cars Didn't have street cars.
They ate good food, breathed fresh air, rested as nature
Intended—and walked. You can't beat that combination for
keeping the human animal well.
Why don't you get up early tomorrow morning and walk
to work? Then, if not too tired, walk home at night. Pill
the lungs, stretch the legs, enjoy the scenery, get back to
nature. It's as fine exercise as there is And it keeps the
Lay the Cards Face Up, Woodrow
Owing to the stir made by the News-Post of Philadelphia,
it appears that some one hundred big firma, beside John
Wanamaker, have compromised their customs frauds by I the
payment of money, under the Taft administration. These
compromises were ma le, more or less "on the quiet," but
President Wilson's attorney general and secretary of the
treasury promise thorough investigation and full publicity.
Tins is as it should be, and this promise should be
fulfilled as early a« is possible, not for the purpose of muck
raking Taft and his crew, already completely discredited
and retired to merited oblivion, but for the purpose of
criminal prosecution of the guilty.
When "Holy John" Wanamaker planked down $100,000
to satisfy defrauded Uncle Sam, he probably thought he d
bought complete absolution, but no le«<s an authority than
U. S District Judge i.nndis has decided that in spite of any
monev compromise the defratiders can be punished with im
prisonment, if conspiracy can be proved.
Of course, anyone can make out how John and the other
hundred hortis%vaggled poor soft old Bill I aft and his
satellites The accused were of our best and holiest citizens
It wa> the first time they had sinned, or. rather, been caught.
The offense was not intentional, but due to the error in their
business system. So, they restored part of their swag and
were let off.
On with the investigation, the publicity and the pros
ecution. Woodrow! Maybe, when we get at substantial
justice in this matter, there'll be more of substantial justice
to pass around to the common folks.
Mothers, have you joined the Seattle Mothers' 1 rain

Began This Morning and Will Continue Six Daya
IT'S TO BE A BARGAIN EVENT OF MERIT—A RECIPROCAL SALE FOR
YOUR BENEFIT. A little over a year ago the Pariton & London Co. took ortt th*
business of the Edwin London Co. The first three or four months were devoted to
closing out of the Edwin London Co. stock and replacing it with merchandise of the
newest and most reliable character. Every department received a thorough overrul
ing and leceived its quota of up to the minute merchandise. Rome was not built in t
day, neither was any healthy business. Spasmodic adveitising and spasmodic bargains
are like moftquitos or traveling fakirs—they come and in the night time. But it
takes time to build a healthy, reputable lasting be : cS4 It takes time for peopk
to appreciate and know what we are doing for them, lotrf nave been buncoed so ionj
by unscrupulous advertisers and fake sales in every line of business that they in
skeptical and must be shown today that a firm's word is as good as its bond —that fht
promises in print are performed on the premises.
'Hie patronage our friends and patrons have given us during the past year con
vinces us that they appreciate our efforts. The steady increase in our business in the
past eight months,' thoroughly demonstrates that the people realize the savings they caa
