- HAPPINESS' Ig -what we all look for at the begin ning of each year. Yes. a happy new year and a continuance of that same is cur ,wish to .everyone, and let us all begin on January 1, 1904, and say -we will be happy. Of course if people won't "swear off" who are in the habit cf drinking vthe infernal stuff which rndermroes their health and brings dis- ..sa&e to their brains they must" not ox pect happiness.and it's almost as injuri ous to drink bad, poor tasting tea or. soffee. Where the abOTe beverages arc used. people niust not expect happi ness. Buy some 'Tea or Coffee at our store and see if it is the quality that brings happiness into- . your home. Speaking- of happiness, reminds us of ' th picture on the. 1004 calendar which we are going to give to each purchaser 0 a pound of Tea or Coffee, on. Satur dayJanuary 21904. irs-the picture nf a brass v buttoned, blue coated club .swinger, better known as a "cop." lie Yvcaugbt in "the act" while paying :bls srtefktjons to a servant or nurse at 3 o'clocirwe believe in the afternoon), and it looks very much as though he knows just what he is doing. We pre sented one of' tliem to one of our com-' irg l'oard of public safety the other day and he said it' was his opinion "they all' do it" and he also said he didn't think that It could ever be stopped. By, the way,we have a lim ited number of the above calendars wnd i'wre cannot promise you one unless you make your purchase on January 2. There will be great speculating as to which "cop" it really represents. Re member our 27-cent Butter is the nice tasting kind. Try some from ; ( CPhelan's T Store.
