GOOD-LOOKING MEN
ARE CREATING A FUROR WITH
CHICAGO FAIR SEX
Th» Rtwitl Shaving Praoass,
The men of Chicago have suddenly
acquired an attractive complexion. The
reason for this is, that they are now
shaving thair faces with the newest prp
cess, called * ‘the Velvet-Edge '.Safety
Razor Blade sharpener.” which gives
that velvety smooth skin to the constant
shaver.
You men who use safety razors and
want a velvety skin, shayed with the
delicate softness so much desired, with
a keen cutting edge, send your old saf
ety razor blades at once *o Chicago, and
have them sharpeued by the newest e
lectrical process, which makes the old
blade cut better chan the new. and your
old blades are returned to you a perfect
new blade.
Don’t throw away your old safety
razor blades, but send them today, well
wrapped, and do not delay it until to
morrow.
Price 30c. per dozen for all safety raz
orjblades, which include Gillettes, Ever-
Ready. Gem, Auto-Strop, Enders, Keen
Kutter, and all other makes. Your
blades will be returned to you in a few
days, charges prepaid. Send coin or
stamps. No orders accepted under 30c.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local application*. aa they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to euro deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an Inflamed condi
tion of the mucous linlnx of the Eusta
chian Tube. When this tube is Inflamed
you have a rumbling sound or Imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed.
Deafness is the result, and unless the In
flammation ran bo taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.
_ We will gin Om UrafinA Dolltn for ssr esse of

PRESERVE YOUR CREDIT
I’ll tell you about this thing of
paying one’s debts, says Bert
Walker. Very few men do it
from a spasm of morality. They
do it because it pays best in the
long ru n. No man who makes a
practice of being dishonest and
repudiating his just accounts
ever amounts to a hill of beans.
In the commercial world they
never get to the quarter pole.
The successful business man
thinks more of his credit than he
does of his wife, for he knows
that if his wife leaves him he
stands some show of getting an
other, but if his credit forsakes
him he is up against it. He can
have but one credit. A success
ful gambler always makes his
word good and keeps his credit
inviolate. It is his only stock in
trade. It seems strange, with
all this in mind, that young fel
lows will start out by beating
little bills at restaurants and
stores. They will even borrow
fifty cents of a. friend and refuse
to pay it back. That class of
fellows always wear a banner
that can be seen all over town,
and everybody is onto them.
When it comes to paying debts,
“honesty is always the best pol
icy.”—Ex.
The old Board out and the
new Board in.
Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 12 o’clock
the new board of commissioners
for Baca Co. convened. J. F.
Harrison, by the good grace of
Messrs Barr and Hazel, (who
laying aside all and singular any
political feeling in the premises)
was made the honorable chair
man of the board. The new
board gave the contract for the
furnishing of records, books etc.
to the Out West. Printing, and
Publishing Co. The job work ie.
the printing of letter heads etc.
for Co. officials was awarded the
l Baca Co. Democrat?. The work
lof doing the county printing
j was awarded to the Herald and
contrary to the banner ad run
j by the Couch «fc Crocker Show
,at a cost of 50 cents only the a
j foresaid Herald continues to be
i the official paper of Baca Co.
j Republicans will rejoice and not
many democrats will weep. The
1 Herald will continue to do busi
| ness at the old stifhd and the
! sheet will run as in the past, not
the personal organ of any man.
