ADVERTISEMENTS
All service is worthy of its
hire and good service cannot
be continuously obtained un
less adequately rewarded.
From the beginning of tele
phone history the American
public has received the best
telephone service of any
country in the world. In pro
portion to the service rendered
the people have paid less for
this telephone service than
any other country in the
world.
Mention the Leader When Writing Advertisers
The laborer is worthy of his hire
The reason why the Amer
ican people have received the
highest type of telephpne serv
ice at the least proportionate
cost is because the Bell Sys
tem Has been operated on a
scientifically economic basis.
Every device which inventive
skill* engineering ability, labor
and time saving talent has
been able to create every
efficiency known to buying,
operation, executive control
and financial conduct has
been employed.
Public service companies
feel the high cost of living as
well as individuals. Pay them
enough to make possible their
giving good service. There
is no permanent saving in
poorly paid service.
In this land of opportunity
none of us is willing to jeop
ardize his success or happi
ness by stinting the payment
necessary to secure the most
healthful and efficient service.

And for booze, any sort,
They pay twenty a quart,
Which is "most unreasonably high!"

Wonder if they'll accuse the
supreme court of being Bolshevik
for permitting the North Dakota

Most of those candidates who be
lieve in letting the office seek the man,

to attract the attention of the said
office.
Mr. Bryan doesn't seem to like
any 'of the Republican candidates

The headline, "Bolsheviki May

Another headline says, "Worst Is

the immigration commissioner in
North Dakota.

in his soup shouldn't kick. It's
mighty seldom you can get anything

Palmer is predicting a Demo
cratic victory in November. Must
be he has given up hopes of get
ting the nomination.
The league of nation? plank in the
Republican platform looks more like
a lifesaving raft for the party.
A soft answer may turn away
wrath, but some of the old topers
say a soft drink won't.

"I SEE BY THE PAPERS"
S
AID Angus McCracken as he
sat out in front of the Tickle
ville grocery store, "I see by
the papers that sugar's gone
up in places a nickle or more. Now
the paper I get says that this thing
is due to the fact that it's cold at
the poles, that the spring has been
late in the Solomon isles and the
outrageous telephone tolls."
But Ichabod Penny dispute at
once the statements that Angus had
made, he smiled with contempt,
saying, "Angus, my friend, your
paper is wrong, I'm afraid. Now
the paper I read, a Republican
sheet, has told me these prices are
due to the fact that the Democrats
have all the jobs, they're a most
incompetent erew. It tells me that
Wilson and Eugene V. Debs, and
Trotzky, Lloyd George and Old
Nick had all got together and cook
ed up a scheme they say was cer
tainly slick. They didn't say what
they decided to do, or how they had
done what they did, somehow or
other «they worked it all right and
clamped on the sweetening lid. And
now it comes out that the profit
they make is turned into Bolshevik
gold to spread propaganda among
Eskimo tribes and sovietize all the
cold."
Then Ichabod's paper and Angus',
too-, a day or two latter came out
with new explanations, both dif
f'rent, of course, of how the whole
thing came about. But none of the
papers said even a word that in the
next county was found a sugar Con
cern which was making just then
about seventeen cents on each
pound! —C. W. V.
