NAYLO THE FURNITURE TCHN W Don' Wan Al of Your Money THE COLDEST WINTER- Somewhat Remarkable Experience In Duluth, Minn. In a little wayside h.a a small Btation some fifty mile* west of Du luth a half-dozen men from various places chanced to meet renently. The conversation opened with a remark concerning the weather, and from that drifted easily to the se verity of winters in the different parts of the Northwest. One man, who came from the Twin Cities, told a sad story of frozen water pipes and other household in conveniences occasioned by tne frigid weather there one February. Another recounted a tale of suffer ing endured by men and beasts on a North Dakota prairie during a bliz zard.

Would you believe it! I haven't had to pay for a drop of liquor since I came here to distribute teetotal tracts." Not Looking for Notoriety.
