He's the fellow others follow.

And because MICHAELS-STEP N have given us their heartiest co-operation, we are able to offer you young men more style and better quality at $15, $18, $20 and more than ever you were able to get before for the same money.

Some time ago, the Directors of The Farmers' Mutual Telephone Company said they wanted to buy THE IIOME COMPANY, and want ed a price on same. In answer we said that you can have It for Its real value ami that left to the PUHLIC SERVICE COMMISSION. Wo also said, "If you don't waul to buy, you can have these people appralte your stock and Mr. Huclier's stock and our slock ah'l then orgaulro a new com pany with this amount as the capital stock, call It "THE SOUTHKItN HOLT COUNTY MUTUAL," you will have your stock In the company without Investing a dollar and will gel a low rate rental on your phones. If Mr. Hucher wlr-hcs to sell his stock, you can buy It, and If you want some or all of ours, you can have all you want and we will keep the remainder If there Is any remain der left. If Mr. Ilucher don't want his slock and you don't want It, then we will take It. We are also willing to sell any or all our country lines and phones to the Farm ers on them at their real value and let them have service at the low Farmer rate. In this way the entire country lines wilt be owned and controlled by the Farmers and service rendered them at a tow rale. We know of only one strictly Mutual Company In Holt County, that la at New Point. All other Farmer Cora panics In the county are stock Com pany Corporations. The Mutual at Maltland, Mound City, Forest City and Oregon do business under corpor ation charter, given them by tho Slate of Missouri, and Just llko the new one would he. What Is the matter with our prop osition Why Not Consolidate Why not give the people some rral value for their money Why no', arrange It so that all of our neighbors can use tho same phone system? Why not tlx It so that our Doctors, Lawyers, Preach ers and Ituslncss men can make one telephone do the workv Why not ar range It so that all the ladles can talk to each other? Why not make two systems do the work of one? There are people In the community that would like to have a telephone, yet do not want two, yet under tho present conditions It Is necessary for them to have two to get the com bined service. This Is not right, the public Is not being served right, this way. The facts are: lloth ot thu Oregon companies have about TiCO subscribers, both of them connect with about 2,tXKt telephones In Holt county. Why not have these two or ganlrailons consolidated? Don't you believe that this Is the right way for us lo sent the public? Hemembcr, If you plese, wc aro not asking thai you come to us, but asking that you let us come tn yon, Arc you going to hu neighborly Y Does the latch string hang oul? Say Neighbor, how long are you going to keep us knocking at your door? Ilemeiiiber, also, that wu aru not pattpeiH. we havn made good divi dends on our slock In the telephone business und we think ue can con tinue in do so. We aru doing bigger business mm than ever beforo, but we cauiiut Just ste Ihu use of two tel ephone systems here In this com munity and the burden that they make on the public, jet If yiiu can show us a good reason fur thlv, wu will say no more.
