ID you ever look iip the meaning
of the words "Price" and "Cost"?
Wc venture you'd be interested, even
surprised. Jv -?¥*,
"Price" originally meant not money, not cash—
but Reward, Praise, Worth. In the days of
Caesar they called it "Pretium."
"Cost" comes from the old Icelander word
"Koster," signifying to Choose, to Test, to
So Price is really the Worth of the thing sold.
"Cost" means how well the thing bought proves
up actual use.
So we're not so far off the track today, for when you
buy paint, the Price of it should be the measure of its
usefulness, appearance^and wear. Its Cost to you
will be how well it stands the test you put it to. If it
does well, it's cheap if not, you paid too much. 1
Measured by this, poor paint costs far, far more than
good paint never worth the price asked and never
stands the test of wear.
There's one house paint made that's worth the price
and stands the test, and that's HORSE SHOE
BRAND HOUSE PAINT,— best lead, zinc, aged
linseed oil, japan, coloring matter and nothing else
honest materials, honestly prepared, sold on honor.
Seven gallons of HORSE SHOE PAINT covers as
much surface as ten gallons of ordinary paint and
covers it longer.
Then, too, there's a full line of good HORSE SHOE BRAND
Paint Specialties—HORSE SHOE BRAND Paine for the Barn,
for the Roof, for the Porch, for the Floor, for Inside Walls, Screens,
for Buggies, Wagons—in fact, for everything.
When you're ready to buy paint or paint specialties, and want the
Price and the Cost both right as well as the Paint, just remember
that here is one store where you'll find what you're looking for.

KULL DOES GOOD WORK
The Kull Bill a Drastic Anti-Combi
Representative Kull proved himself
a live wire during the recent session of
the legislature, and one of the most
important measures of the session was
passed by his efforts. Several weeks
ago Mr. Kull introduced a bill aimed at
combinations, pools or agreements
made by lumbermen of the state. The
bill was quite similar to a bill passed at
the previous session to prohibit combi
nations by grain dealers.
Jnsures wholesome and deli
cious food for every day
in every home
Mr. Kull's bill passed the house by a
vote of 68 to 24, and went to the senate,
where the lumbermen made a decided
stand against it. John W. Barry of
Cedar Rapids, a lumberman, appeared
before the judiciary committee to pro
test against the bill, stating that such
a law would place a stigma on the
business, but the questions asked by
several senators indicated that the sen
ators had been reading some the inside
correspondance of the lumbermen's
trust. Mr. Barry claimed that the bill
was introduced by Representative Kull
to vent his spite upon the men he de
fe'ated, but Senator Gilleland suggested
that inasmuch as Kull had won out,
the story didn't hang together very
well. After the committee meeting
Mr. Kull was asked if he had defeated
a lumberman, and the DesMoines Trib
une contains the story as follows:
"Sure I beat two of 'em," was the
Both at once?"
"No one at a time. The republicans
nominated a lumberman against me
two years ago last fall and I won out
on the strength of my standing as a
farmer. I beat him by eighteen votes.
He sold his lumber yard to Senator
Burgess and is now in the banking bus
iness. Last fall they nominated an
other lumber dealer and I defeated him
by 128 votes."
Is this a spite bill?" was the next
Not by any means. I had heard of
combinations by lumber dealers. You
can hear it even outside of Iowa. The
attorney general of Missouri collected
evidence which convinced him there
was a lumber trust in this state I
went to investigating and I found that
conditions warranted the framing of a
bill. I wrote it after the style of the
Stillman bill, which passed the legisla
ture last season, and affects grain
After several lumbermen had been
heard and subjected to many questions
which showed plainly that the senators
possessed considerable information of
their own, the senate committee took
one minute to recommend the bill for
passage. When the bill was called up
in the senate Senator Sammis for the
lumbermen of the senate offered a sub'
stitute which was practically Mr. Kull's
bill saye that the words relating ex
clusively to lumber- were changeed to
embrace combinations in any business.
The lumbermen allowed this bill to pass
the senate supposing they had arrang
ed for its slaughter in the house.
The substitute bill was passed to the
house. Mr. Kull accepted it, stating
that he asked for but a slice and the
senate had given him a whole loaf.
Mr. Kull stated that the substitute was
written by lumbermen in an effort to
beat the bill, that the senate had
adopted it, and that he was more than
satisfied with it. The bill then passed
the house by a vote of 84 to 5.
The Des Moines Capital, in comment
ing on the bill says:
"The joke is on Senator Smith of
Mitchell, and other lumbermen of the
senate, who thought they had killed
Kull's bill prohibiting lumber price
pooling by adopting a rigid anti-trust
substitute aimed at trusts of all kinds.
The house passed the substitute with
out opposition. By its terms coal
trusts, ice trusts, grocery trusts, lum
ber trusts, in fact, any combine

check the bill which had been thought
too drastic for consideration, but it
was useless. The bill went through.
It seems that the man who drew the
bill took the law which was passed two
years ago against the grain trust and
struck out the word grain, substituting
the word lumber. The lumber dealers
in the last general assembly went after
the grain trust and all voted for the
anti-grain trust bill. Now that some
body is after the lumber trust in exact
ly the same language, the lumber deal
ers in the general assembly do not like
it. The lumbermen declare there is no
trust. But the unprejudiced reader
would say if there is no trust the bill
prohibiting a trust could do no harm."
On Saturday Governor Carroll signed
what is now known as the Kull bill and
Iowa has an effective statute prohibit
ing combinations and pools in any line
