and Odd Lots
After a busy season we have
gathered up many short ends
and broken lots of merchandise
that will be sold at very low
prices. Come in and look them
over. We have them arranged
in lots at different prices:
lc, 3c, 9c, lie, 19c, 24c, 39c, 69c, & 98c.
Also a large assortment of
Remanents of yard goods
of various kinds
As we beast of things we did,
as we whoop around and sing, tell
ing how we put the lid on the
Hun's anointed king, we should
not forget, I wot, that the British
also fought, and the French and
Belgians shot up the foe like ev
erything. Let us make a joyful
noise, after all the woe and wreck ;
let's insist that we're the boys
who can put up ice, by heck; but
the British and the French also
held the reeking trench in the
blood and power strench, and the
Belgians were on deck. I indorse
the harmless brags we are making
nowadays; with the rest Pm wav
ing flags, yelling till I break my
stays; for we've nobly done our
bits, but the Frenchmen and the
Brits also made the Hun throw
fits, in some fifty-seven ways.
With the allies we shall go, terms
of peace to wisely frame; and
we're talking just as though it
were ours to boss the game; we're
deserving cordial thanks—but the
Britons and the French also faced
the Prussian ranks; to forget it
were a shame. I take part in all
the fuss, and I cheer and snort and
prance, and I shoot my blunder
bus, and get stewed at every
chance; but I can't forget how
well Britons fought through all
that hell, how for honor Belgians
fell, with the loyal sons of France.
Howard Red Elk Dead
Howard Red Elk, youngest son
of Elijah and Mrs. Red Elk, died
at his home in Ferdinand Sunday,
after a lingering illness of pneu
monia, following influenza. The
young man was aged 14, and had
been a student at the public
school prior to his illness, and had
a host of frieuds.

It is short-sighted policy to starve
cattle by attempting to maintain
them in depleted fall pastures.
This practice is common in west
ern range states. It is unjust be
cause it is inhumane, and it is un
wise because it is unprofitable.
Although animals suffer less
than man, they none the less suf
fer. Partial starvation is agoniz
ing in the extreme. Aside from
this, it causes atcckmen to lose

harvest. This is desirable both
inorderto save the seed which I
would otherwise be wasted. High
price of feed tempts owners to de
lay feeding as long as possible.
This is not wise, because cattle
lose flesh rapidly.
Experienced feeders know only
too well that it is more difficult
j tion and it is also much more ex
pensive than to avoid its loss. It
is not profitable to keep cattle fat,
but they should be kept strong
Weak animals die at spring
calving. When cows die, their
calves, too either die or else are
saved with extreme difficulty.
Feed that the dead animals have
