TheyArejLiberal Monroe City has as many sound, solid, substantial busi ness men, men who are pro gressive, men who are up-to-date in their business methods and who carry stocks far great er and more varied than is usu ally found in cities with larger populations and adjacent trade territories than that of the Queen of the Prairies. They areactive, they are pro gressive as tbeirfplaces of busi ness prove andas their ads in this issue of the Democrat demonstrates. Trade'with them and you are safe, safe because you receive 100 cents in value for your $1 paid out. A more liberal set of.men can not be found, as the farmers in the vicinity will attest, for they never come to the city with a plea for a worthy; cause that is turned down.
