Yet the wire pullers told us consolida tion would be the direct cause of mak ing our tax bills smaller, but .what did it do? Tney tell us that this year we will be obliged to pay four .mills on the dollar more than ever before. .Well, isn't that a nice how do you do? Doesn't it make you feel like kicking yourself when' you let a lot of poli ticians hoodwink you like that?-Hoodwinking is bad business; it doesn't pay in the long, run; we always believe the truth is -best, therefore, you can rely on what, we say; For instance,', we wouldn't dare say our 27c butter : is the best in the city for the price if it wasn't true. Neither would we dare say our tea and coffee is better than the other fellows sell if we didn't know what -we were talking about. If the sell the very best coffee in Connecticut all you've got Jo do is buy a pound and see how your mind Tins been hood winking your body.. Remember Phelan's T Store. OUR SPECIAL OFFER.
