THE CELINA DEMOCRAT
The Pinch Back is a
For a Young Man. It has
the snap and go that all the
young fellows like still
not flashy for the fellows
who are old in years but
not in spirit.
Worn by the best dressed
and liked by all, the pinch
back is the favorite for
Spring and Summer.
We still have a splendid
selection of the most want
ed, scarcest and hardest to
find just now in desirable
fabrics and colors. But we
are lucky in that respect,
in that we just received a
delayed shipment that
should have been here a
month ago, and as per con
tract received a price al
lowance, by reason of
which you will be surprised
at the special prices we are
in Blue Serges and fancy
sport mixtures, and some
beautiful models from
$18.00 to $25.00
Real beauties, the kind that make you look and want
even the young ladies say they wish they could wear them.
In fact, it's just as a traveling man said when he looked
them over, that it would be hard to find as large or more
complete line of bright colors and snappy styles in the
most exclusive city gent's furnishing goods store. If .you
did you'd pay at least 75c to a dollar for the same high
quality of silk and tine make and finish instead of our price
of 50 cents. They couldn't keep up on so small a profit.
But President Wilson has requested all merchants to
do their bit and keep the country sane and fit by quick
sales and small profits. That, of course, has always been
our motto, and we will still strive to do more, but we think
it's as much or more necessary to use our best judgment
and care as to quality, good, dependable goods, that will
wear and give satisfaction. People are just beginning to
find out the deception, and it's getting worse every day,
but when you trade with us you don't take any chances.
Everything bought at this store must be right and give
full value or we make it such. Our goods and prices must
be right when people come only to look, always buy, and
what is more encouraging, that so many either come or
send their friends and neighbors to buy. If you have not
been in the store since the change, come in and renew old
acquaintances and look around. We will be pleased to

PROHIBITION WAVE HITS
OLD NEW YORK
Conservative Sun Turns Bat
teries on Alcohol.
New York. The Prohibition wave
in the South and West has hit this
metropolis. Prohibition is dis
cussed in clubs, business houses, and
hotel lobbys. Even the newspapers
do not hesitate to declare that it is
not impossible for Prohibition to
overwhelm New York City.. Some
mornings ago the entire city gasped
on reading the following in the Sun
which has never been considered
friendly to Prohibition:
"King Alcohol's record is a sorry
one. Wherever his commercial ex
ploitation has been undertaken and
where has it not? a story of
wretched villainy has been, written.
The custodians of his business inter
ests have shown themselves ready
always and everywhere to ally them
selves with the worst elements of the
community. Wherever a direputable
den needed a friend one of the King's
fatuous men was sure to volunteer.
Wherever conditions became so bad
that a community rose in wrath to
abate intolerable nuisances one of his
court was at hand to combat cleanli
ness and bolster up vice. Wherever
weakness and ignorance gave some
little sign of striving for better
things some retainer of this arrogant
monarch was at hand to stifle it. Not
a bad cause lacked support from his
well-stuffed coffers, not a good
movement enlisted their assistance.
Corruption has recruited its first
lieutenants, its captains;, its generals
in chief from his train; every oppor
tunity for dirty work has been seized
ty them greedily; every indecency
cf business, of policies, of humanity
at large has been bolstered and up
held by his retainers."

Do not forget that corn will be the
main-stay crop while the world Is
hungry. It will furnish feed In and
out of the house. It makes bread as
well as pork and beef. We could
get along without most anything else
better than we could give up corn.
Plant it plenty. Good seed Is the
need. Whcn corn Is one dollar a
bushel, one bad ear of seed corn
planted, Is as bad as burning up a
ten dollar bill.
The world Is talking about the
farm and the coming crop. Millions
are on short ratiouB. Grow corn. It
will feed everybody and everything.

You know I whipped dem Beljlans
Und mitt bullets filled Russia full
Und I'll whip France and Italy
Und blow up Johnny Bull.

Und whip dot Uncle Sam.
You know I gott dem submarines
All Europe knows dot well
But dot Edison gat a patent now
Dot blows dem all to hell. .
Now Cbtt If you will do me this
Di n yoti I will always love
Und I will be Emperor of der earth
L'nd you be Emperor above.
But Gott if you refuse me this.
Tomorrow night at leven
I'll call nine Zeppelins out
Und declare war on Heaven
I wouldn't ask dis from youn
But it can be plainyl seen
Dot when Edison pushes dot button
I got no submarine.
