NEW MODELS NOW ON SALE
The WIRTHMOR might bo truthfully termed the all-Suasoiis \
Waist, for they are worn throughout the entire year by thrifty
womeu the nation over.
This is due to their unusual excellence, their unfailing de- |
pendability, their inodost price, but perhaps more particularly \
because of the fact that the NEW Styles are constantly being
developed and shown here but a brief time after their origination. |
And so it is that WIRTHMOR styles are always timely as !
well as tempting; appropriate ah well as appealing; styleful as
well as serviceable.
ln September we show the new September Models, just as in
all the other months of the year we show the models made up for
deliveries In the respective months. '

Store in every City and they are sold here only.

Mr. Sexson was among the first

telligent "doughboy," Mr. Sexton
was early selected for important

through without a scratch, as It
were.
Before leaving for Army service,
he was married, the young wife re
maining with her folks.

Nation Militant and the
Church Militant
The Nation-Wide Campaign is tiie
auminoning-tip of tiie Church's pow
er for her fully understood and fully
ao#«‘ptod spiritual war. It is the
calling into expression through tiie
Church, for tiie sake of tho Kingdom
of« God, of tiie same intelligence, the
saint' swift efficiency, tiie same high
coQsecration, which thu spirit of
man and woman in America rose to
at She dial ledge of tho nation's war.
For Christ's sake, and iu Ills su
premo cause, we must conserve and
put to spiritual use tiie magnificent
energies for idealistic action which
tint last two years have taught us to
expect from tho American spirit,
when a great cause is at stake.
In these months of the war, all of
us—men and women, boys and girls
—hpve felt a new pride in being cit
izens of tiie United Stales. And the
reason for that was this. Wo were
working, we were giving, we wore!
sacrificing together, for a common
cause. We loved tho country more,
because more than ever before.we
wore identifying our life witli the
country's life. We loved because
our hearts were on fire with service.
So can it he also with thu Church.
If we want to lovo tiie Church
more, first we must see in tho
Church's spiritual adventure some
thing that thrills our best strength
into action. It is tho first business
of "The Nation-Wide Campaign" to
make us see that. It bids us con
sider what tiie Church is here for,
what the Church is doing and what
tiie Church ought to do, to the end J
that encli single one of us mail recog-1
nlzc* tiie inspiring bigness of tiie
Church's duty and in t.lie midst of it j
see tlx* particular cliande of which j
we say. "Here is tho thing for inn
to do."
Remuneration of Stockmen
Ma..«r. J. S. Welch and C. R.
Green special representatives »f The
Mountain States Mixed Feed A Feed
Yards Co of Deliver were visitors ill
Meeker Tuesday. Tills company is
organized for tiie Stock growers of
the State to save tiie financial losses
that they have been taking for tiie
past years. It is a proposition that
lookbest that has been present
ed to the community in the last de
cade as it is in keeping witli tiie in
dustry that is the backbone of tiie
west and is destined to become tho
1 only means of keeping the livo stock
industry on a high financial plane,
j This opportunity should not be over
looked as it means more money iu
1 ' every stockgrower'a and farmer’s
' pocket. Tiie industry is backed by
some of tiie most influential men of
the West. Governor Slioup speaks
very highly of it. Tiie pluu is to
have every stockgrower one of tiie
; company so lie can put his critters
on feed for a few days or months
and thereby increasing the weight
and price and not lie forced to take
the market price ottered him as lias
been tiie case in the past.
From all appeareuces this propos
, ition looks very worthy of consider
ation and support of all the stock
I growers of this community so that
I you may enjoy tiie best finauciul re
sults obtainable.
The gentlemen have made arrange
ments witli Mr. F. E. Sheridan, Pres
ident of the Commercial Club, to
have a meeting witli tho governing
; Board and ineinebrs of this organiza-"*
; tiou upon their return which will be
1 in the next two weeks.
It is time the stockmen were get
ting together to promote their inter
ests, and not be caused to suffer the
loss which in tiie past, lias been their
lot, from tiie time of shipping to the
selling.
