CO CO o CO o CO o CO CO A LITTLE. E.AK.LY, . You know about the bird and the worm we believe it pleases you and we are cer tainly pleased. . Understand we are talking of the fact that our advance shipments of dry goods and novelties were all opened and being sold before some people awoke to the fact BUT me, ojjiiuuiih. in aumu ui nit; icguiai unit; v.aiu 11110 tai . But, " lest we forget," let us call your attention to this fact we want to serve at all times the best interests of the buying public that means work, judgment and enterprise and no one realizes more fully than we how these elements count in carrying on a busi- ness such as ours. Constant effort, always alert for tyles and values, anxious to please, and a keen sense of pride when we succeed. , An average increase of 15 per cent, in sales at the two stores since January 1 over corresponding dates of 1905 makes us very happy . But it affords us special pleasure to know that we are gradually getting our different lines of merchandise so placed that we can be sure of offering our trade values and styles that competition can hardly meet. We hope you will pardon us for saying frankly that we desire above all things to at all times keep in the lead as merchants. This desire is not altogether selfish it is largely a matter of pride in our work. We believe that in any avocation, the man who places dollars instead of pride, as the controlling element of his work, is a failure from the start. , What we want in our stores is the best class of merchandise' the markets afford and the best class of employees the country produces. They must be courteous, honest and happy. ' We want the community to also feel proud of our business. We want you to be able to tell visitors of the way we manage our affairs and to feel that our welfare is yours also. The ideals ot our stores are drawn from 'our knowledge of how our country's greatest merchants conduct their stores, and 'we feel confident that the public will always gladly-support just such a store.

E. N. Moore. To the Voters of Obion County: In consenting to offer my serv ices to represent Obion County in . the next Legislature, 1 deem it but jnHtand fair in behalf of those who insisted upon me making the race, and myself, to say that the idea never originated with me at all. I taver sought a public office in my life notwithstanding I have served the public in an humble way for a' number of years. 1 had no natural inclination to politics whatever and I desire the public to know that I am a candi date now, because a large number of the good citizens of the county have insisted that I should offer my services, and I have therefore subjected my will to theirs. , Now I want it definitely under stood for alt time to come, that J onter this race free and untram moled; that I am not the candidate of any particular section, as I ani proud of the support I have in all sections, and that 1 will not suffer myself to be dieted to nor led by any particular class tp.jpection. I 6ay furthermore, that t am not bound up in the interest any particular section with the view of encouraging special local legisla tion, and will not participate in such, unless the same emenates from the majority of all parties and sections interested and con cerned. If I am finally chosen by the voters of Obion County to repre sent them in the Legislature, which I now expect to be, I assure you that 1 shall not only regard it as an honor that any citizen should be proud of, and also appreciate, but that I will serve you as faith fully and impartially as it is possi ble for me to do,, acting under my own conscientious conce-"',-jpf right and wrong. As to njy""views of legislation, I can only say in this short space that I shall be Voverned by the ueeds of my con stituents and shall strive to bring about such legislation as will be calculated to better the conditions of the citizens of the county tem porally, morally and mentally. My life for the last 36 years has been spent with the people of Obion County and so far it is an open book and I respectfully solicit your support upon merit alone. 1 deem this explanation, at this time, sufficient, and trust that all . who may see fit to investigate further will begin with my life at 15 as a soldier boy and follow it down to the present, and if any of it should be condemned they will regard it as such as was brought about by an error of the head and not from an inclination to commit an error. Assuring you that I will appre ciate'your support and that I will give you the very best service of my life, I am yours Truly and respectfully, E. N. Moork. Lownej's eanaies at Dahnke's. EIVES.
