M. M. DAVIDSON. MANAGER,
MERIDIAN IDAHO,
two years Senator Borah has had no
support from his compatriot.
Following the perfect plan of doing
business for the nation, and in sup
porting Harding and Coolidge, it is
highly essential that Idaho secure
the best form of team work and it
can only be secured by electing Good
ing to assist the senior Senator in his
great public projects..
From every community in Idaho
comes the word that Gooding's elec
tion is certain. He has a distinctive
argument to make this year, and the
people of this community should
manifest every interest, and give him
a rousing reception upon the night of
his address.
He will speak at Meridian next
Monday evening at 8 o'clock at the
public hall.

PERFECTION IN TIRES
They not only grace your wheels but add to the car's ap
pearance almost 100 per cent. In addition to this, our
tires are lasting and never fail to produce the mileage re
sults we claim. Made*from the best material and cured
properly. They are the cheapest in the end.
