the rumors i to the affect that Miss
Surething has a cinch on the piano
and that Miss Soand.w has the porch
set, are decidedly premature. The
contest manager has Aeen through too
many of these battles and has seen
the smile of certainty fane from too
many faces, not to make an effort to
warn the canldates against the sin of
over confidence. ,
. Don't ( think because you had a
windfall of vote last week and ex
pect to win a ifew of those certificates,
this week, that you can rest, on your
oars ami lafigh at the other fellows
You will get badly fooled if you dr
that. Prizes such us the Plain Talk are
offering do not go begginsr, many
shrewed people are in the race and
you can't tell what they can do.
On the other hand don't believe all
you hear about the million of votes
some candidates have up their sleeves.
Some of the candidates consider it good
business to try to scare out the timid
ones by mysteriously hinting at the
tremendous reserve they have stored
away in their breast pockets, while
others who hiay be twice as dangerous
go around telling that they don't ex
pect to win a thing, but just want to
get some excitement out of the con
test. Suit yourself m what you say
but don't, believe all you hear. Next
Thursday October 12th will tell to you.

NE man brushes his hat and another doesn't.
That's because one thinks more of himself than
the other. People notice. The public takes a
man largely at his own valuation. - .
When a man thinks enough of himself to wear stylish
clothes; to wear fine all-wool fabrics; to wear unmistakably
hand-tailored garments he is appraised accordingly,
People say: "He's all right!" He's a good man!" "A
top-notcher!" "A live wire!" And so on. That sort of
thing is a mighty fine asset for any man.
For men who consider themselves good enough to dress
well, we have Kirschbaum's (Cherry Tree Brand) Clothes.
