The Great Store of Yours and Ours Disappearing Rapidly
Are you thoroughly aware of what this means to you now in six months and a year from? It means simply this—that this still great stock Williamson
is selling to his friends and customers of many years at prices in many instances less than One-Half actual wholesale cost today ; it means with this great
institution out of business that little competition will there be throughout the Palouse.. It simply means that you'll pay, must pay, and will pay, two
to three times the price Williamson is man enough to offer you this most wonderful stock for; but, bear well in mind, he does not beg you to spend your
money here to please him. On the contrary, this entire stock he can sell any day, but has promised you not to up until December 15th. After that day
HE MAY, and after that day HE MAY NOT, Economical people will take and are taking no chances. The Grocery Department is offering standard
goods for less than wholesale. The Hardware, the Shoes, the Clothing, the Dry Goods, the Cloaks and Suits and every department is teeming with
matchable bargains. The Store will remain open tonight until 9 p. m. Again we say: "Come spend and save!

Whether to close Moscow tight,
stopping all public meetings, includ
ing churches, lodges and picture
shows or permit these to continue
to operate while the public schools
are closed, are questions that are agi
tating the minds of the various
boards, including the health and
school -board and the city govern
The'-school board has closed the
schools until December 30, and this
has aroused a protest against allow
ing the churches and the theatres to
continue. A joint meeting of the

News from Khaki Boys
This letter was received by Mrs.
Tweedy of Peck, Idaho, from her
October 26, 1918, France.
Dear mother: Will write you an
other letter today.
While I am feeling pretty good,
have got to write about a half a
dozen or so. They took my clothes
away from me and I have to stay
in bed, but will get new ones when
they get ready to let me out. My
others were tore in strips from going
through the German barb wire they
had scattered and strung in front of
Rains here almost all the time.
Have been laying here thinking of
the boys on the lines, wet, cold and
hungry, but it is not bad at that.
I got a Christmas coupon today to
send home, so I will send it today. If
you can send me a box of candy, I
sure will be tickled, haven't had any
since I left the camps. Suppose Peck
is pretty dead now, all of the boys
gone. Got a letter from a girl *
Geraldine just before I went to the
front. She said things were getting
pretty blue, all the boys were leav
Well, hope will be home next year
How is everybody at home?

From your boy, BILL.

American E. F., France.
Mrs. Perry Carter received the fol
lowing letter from'her brother. He
had been farming in Montana for
two years before being called:
October 26, 1918, France.
Dear sister: Will write to you to
day. I suppose you folks think that
I am dead, but I am not, but I am
in the hospital. Have been since the
16th. I got gassed but not bad. Was
on the front 25 days. Rained hard the
last ten days, and we were soaked to
the hide but that was nothing. Our
division got released on the 16th. I
thought I was going to be one of the
lucky ones, when a few of us got it
marching out. We were going back
to a rest camp, but I am feeling
pretty good now, but will be here
six weeks or more.
I left Montana June 28 and got
about two weeks training in the U. S.
camps, and the rest on the fighting
line. That's where a fellow can learn
Well here's hoping that it ends
soon. All of the boys are getting
Christmas coupons to send home. I
got two of them; going to send
mother one. Candy or gum is some
thing that is hard to get here.
I haven't wrote ör got any letters
for two months, but I haven't been
where I could.

Low Meat Prices
High Cattle Prices
_ If the farmer cannot get enough for
his live stock, he raises less, and the
packer gets less raw material.
If the consumer has to pay too much
for his meat, he eats less if it, and the
packer finds his market decreased.
The packer wants the producer to
get enough to make live-stock raising
profitable, and he wants the price of meat
so low that eveiyone will eat it.
But all he can do, and what he would
have to do in any case to stay in busi
ness, is to keep down the cost of pro
cessing the farmer's stock into meat so
that the consumer pays for the meat and
by-products only a little more than the
farmer gets for his animals.
For example, last year Swift & Company
paid for its cattle about 90 per cent of
what it got for meat and by-products
(such as hides, tallow, oils, etc.)
If cattle from the farm were turned
miraculously into meat in the hands of
retailers (without going through the ex
pense of dressing, shipping and market
ing), the farmer would get only about
V/s cents per pound more for his cattle,
or consumers would pay only about 2%
Cents per pound less for their beef!
Out of this cent or two per pound.
Swift & Company pays for the operation
of extensive plants, pays freight on meats,
operates refrigerator cars, maintains
branch houses, and in rhost cases, de- I
livers to retailers all over the United j
States. The profit amounts to only a
fraction of a cent, and a part of this I
profit goes to build more plants, to give I
better service, and to increase the
pany's usefulness to the country.
