SOUVENIR Set of Majestic Ware FREE If vou will call at our store during- our Majestic Demonstration Week and allow us to show you the many advantages and su perior qualities of the Great and Grand Majestic Eange. and will purchase one at the regular price, we will give you Fkee the beautiful and useful Souvenir set of Ware illustrated in this advertisement. This ware is made to match the quality of the Majestic Ranges, and we know all ladies will see the beauty and utility of this Set, especially the first three pieces, which are entirelv new and cannot be had alone by purchase, except at a very high price. The prices of Majestic Ranges are the same, but we give the set Free with each Majestic Range bought during demonstration week only. REASONS WHY THE GREAT MAJESTIC YOU SHOULD BUY. 1st. It has the reputation of being the best range money can buy. 2nd. it not only has the reputation, but is the best range made, and we will prove this to you if you will let us. 3rd. Jt is constructed of Malleable iron (material you cairt beat) and of Charcoal Iron (material that resists rust 300 per cent greater than steel), is riveted together air-tight. No heat escapes or cold air enters range, thus uses very little fuel to do perfect work. 4th. The reservoir alone is worth the price of the range over any other reservoir made. Itboils 15 gallons of water; is heated like a tea kettle, with pocket against left hand lining, and is movable and sets on a frame, hence cannot wear out. When water gets too hot it can be moved awav from fire. THE GREAT ind GRAND MAJESTIC RflNQE MAJESTIC RANGES use less fuel; heat more water-and heat it hotter; costs practically nothing for repairs; last three "tunes as long; bake better; easier to keep clean and give better satisfaction than any other range on the market. If you knew Proitroly that the above statements were true, wouldn't you buy a Majestic at once? Come in during Demonstration Week and we will prove it to you.

They are going to put the big tents in Benton's Park, Oregon, Mo.: you know where it is. This is just the dandiest show that's ever been in this town. If you're under 6 you can get in for nothing. I expect you can coax ma and pa to go with you, just to take care of you, vou know. County Engineer Morris was in St. Joseph on business last week. A Just Environment. Leclaire, Ills., has 6,000 population. During 18 years of its existence it has not had a law suit, it has 'never had one of its citizens arrested, it has never had a policeman, mayor or city council and no dependants nor defi cients. Its citizens mostly own their own homes, own the only store in the place, and have parks, kindergartens, schools, places of amusement and re creation. There is no poverty. This place is just a few miles out from St. Loifis. It is the home of the N. O. Nelson Metal Manufacturing Co. It shows how little use for police and other officers there would be if the people were rightly environed. When ever a man can have a decent place to work, where he can get something like a fair return for his labor, where he is fairly treated if he can do this thing with just a shadow of a real chance, what could be realized under Socialism where the men got all their labor produced, where they could ab solutely govern all the conditions of life? Look at the crime records of other towns the size of Leclaire and note the difference. Yet some people say that you cannot change human nature. Perhaps the nature cannot be changed, but the actions of men can be changed by whatever condi tions surround their lives. Surround them good conditions and the good in them will come to the surface. Sur round them with bad conditions and the bad in them will come to the sur face. Judged by this statement, what are the conditions under which men live now, tested by the showing of the crime that is daily recorded? If you have brains, use them to think with. 8 Announcement Extraordinary. 8 71 NOW ON SALE ! One pound of Violet Talcum Pow der for 25 cents at Hinde Drug Co.
