Great Reductions placed on Trimmed Hats. Stoves and Range. Extensively advertised are not necessarily the best nor the most economi cal to buy. A paper stove if thoroughly advertised in the magazines and periodicals would sell perhaps not many in each town but there are enough towns on this continent to make it possible to sell quite a few. Then comes the scheme of selling direct from the manufacturer to consumer, saving the dealer's profit and giving you the stove at half price. This is also rot The real matter f fact about it is that the manufacturer has done the saving act or himself and has not put in the parts weighing what they should do; has rushed the work of putting together to save cost of labor and then writes a long advertisement showing a picture cut of a $60 range and asks you to buy the most wonderful stove on the market. It looks good on paper, but when yoo buy one just take a knife and push the blade in between the doors and the sides of the stove you can do It on any of them, and if the stove putty used on the joins inside hasnothardened you can run the knife through them also. And yet It is a wonderful stove on account of the price. Why should It not be so? The parts have been thrown together Just as they came from the sand; they probably were not even allowed to be in the same building with an emery wheel made for the purpose of straightening and fitting the different parts of the stove, and why not? Simply because if they had gone through -the 'same process as the reputable makers put them they would cost as much xi the standard stoves do. less the shortage in weight But all the same they larp about the price and unless you keep your "think tank" pretty level you will be tempted to try one. We say, don't do it, because there is linle or no merit In them. If individuals were allowed to coin Gold Dollars they would mil them as these cheap stoves are now sold less than the regular price you know how they would be obliged 'to proceed In order to obtain a profit Well, it Is Just the same with these stoves and why so may people bite at such . onsen se we are at a loss to understand. We guarantee the stoves we sell and ran assure you--we buy none that are not standard makes. Our assortment Is ;uch atbat you can find what you need at The Newtown Bee. Newtown, Friday Dec 31, 1909.

One of our most prosperous men in this town is F J. Johnson, who owns real estate in four different towns, Kent, Cornwall, Washington, and Warrten, and whose acreage Is now a trifle over two square miles. Mr Johnson, when a boy, canvassed for a paper at one dollar a year and had comparatively nothing. But, through his tact. Industry and per severence, he certainly has shown that he is a prosperous and one of the most ambitious men in many a town. He is no politician, although he has represented the town in the legislature and also in other town offices. And that has been very for tunate for him as he has always at tended to his own business, conse quently bis success. Snow fell to the depth of several inches interferlngwith traffic.
