Vol. 15 EAST JORDAN, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY. OCTOBER 28, 1911. No. 43 Open New Hall Rights of Pythias Will Dcd ica'e. Nov. 24tb. South Lake Lode No. L8Q Knights fit Pythias will formally dedicate their new hall in the Tern nlTheatre block Friday evening, Nov. 24. Trepaia tlons are being made for a big time that night, a number of grand lodge officers will be in attendance as well as delegation from all the surrounding lodges. The local 1 dje has threputatlon outside of being royal entertainers and ihey will have a generous brand of hospitality on tap that evening. The nw lodge room Is one of the finest in this part of the state, and one which the local lodge may well feel proud. It Is equipped ' with all modern conveniences. We understand a dance will be held In the hall prior to the formal opening. Young Bees Transferring. The first authoritative statement concerning the progress mnde in transferring members of the Knights of the Modern Maccabees to the uew schedule of rates has Just been made public by A. M. Slay, Great Record Keeper. "Among the tirst thousand members who have already transferred, stated Mr. Slay, "we have found that 131 members or 13 per cent are between CO and 70 ye;irs of age; 247 or 25 per cent are between 45 and CO years of age, while C22 or 02 per cent are 45 years of age and under. It was feared byittfne that we would lose our young er members, but these figures abso lutelf prove tlic contrary. These facts and figures also confirm the claim that all members were treated fairly In the re-adjustment of rales. We are convinced that the permanence and prosperity of the Society is 'already assured." Efficiency In Advertising One principle of successful adver tising, as practised by depirtmsnt store ad writers and other specialists on publicity, is to give definite de scriptions of the goods offered. When a merchant, uses such phrases as ''The best Is the cheapest" and ';Diggest assortment and lowest priceV' he convinces no one. The reader argues that anyone can use these catch words and th'y prove nothing. The most successful advertising Is not ant to -sound like an attempt to persuade. It in more a statement of facts. The reader Is given mater ial ty which he formes his own meu tal picture of the goods. . For this purpose try definite and detailed though very brief descrip tion. Get manufacturers of vour lines to give you some definite facts about how the goods are put togethe er, so that you can give some real reasons why goods are superior. Pick out some special bargains, describe them as above indicated and put In the prices and the real value you believe Iheui to have. . Don't bother about flowery language. What the buyer wants Is cold facts. Reason why" Hdvertlslng Is what brings the buyer around. Importers Tactics. The way of th Importers are strange and incomprehensible to the man In the street. few York papers have been specu latlpg on the reasons that led frul Importers to ship thousands of boxes pf lemons from Sicily to New York 1 and then re-export them to Canada, Hamburg apd other foreign markets. One explanation was that this was done while the tar ill tight was on at Washington, and lemon9 being" tod cheap in eastern markets to permit the Importers to allege that th tariff was shoving prices up too hlgli they tried to create a scarcity by dl ylrtlng lemons to other, and more pro ptable maricets, and cause the price J a Hew ork to go high enongh to give them an argument. They show 'A Incidentally, how completely the? control the market and how easllly they could manipulate prices If they had free entry and could thereby keep the domestic product "beyond the Mississippi" as they formely did be fore the enactment of the Tayne AMrlpfc bill, Does Local Option Hurt Resort Business. When Charlevoix and Emmet conn- ties were making their campaign against the saloons the whiskey sm pathizers put forth the argument that banishing saloons would greatly in jure the report business, a most im portant factor in the prosperity of both counties. In spite of this argu ment most strenuously and preslstent ly presented by the "wets," the better sentiment arid judgment of the voteis pievaikd, saloons and brewer ies were closed and the results have fonefully proved that the "wets" were utterly wrong in their conten tion. The resort business in both counties lias never been better than under the "dry" regime. Moral and social conditions arc immeasurably Improved, and the most prosperous periods In the resort business la Em met and Charlevoix counties' have been in the scaons since the saloons were driven out. The editor of Mod erator Topics Im hecn a summer resi dent and cottage owner on Little Traverse bay for more than 15 years, and knows whereof he speaks. Mind you we do not say that the betterment is entirely due to the shutting up of rum holes, gin simps, booze joints and the like, but wedo insist that closing the saloon does not injure any decent business The Moderator Topics. Gumption On The Farm Paint the ladders and store them away in the barn. Thrnsh the grain out before the rats aijd mice no It for you. Don't stand too much on your dig nityyou might slip and fall. With hay at twenty dollars a ton who would nut be a hayeed? It is so easy for a little rip in the hore blanket to get larger! Start for needle and thread the minult you see such a rent. As the end of the year approaches let us be up and doing all the out door work that bus been put off, lest winter cat eh us unprepared. Selling the farm and moving into town to join the store-box club Is a good d-al like trading off the best cow for a yellow dog. Don't do it brother as long as you cau plow a straight furrow. If you had to stack any hay out this year look at the tops hefore win ter sets in. They sometimes settle badly, so that t lie storms are likely to injure the bay very much. If this is the case with yours, top theai out again. Thick, line grass Is the best for this purpose. Tread It down well. Never set a fried egg with the ex pectation of hatching a fried chicken. In excessively hot weather place a canvas over the potato patch in order to aheild the eves of the potatoes from the blinding sun. Investigation of modern science iiave disclosed the fact that there is no essential connec tion between duck raising and quack-grass. Geoege Patrick, a former well known merchant. of Mackinaw City, is charged with manslaughter and Mose Jones Is dead as the result of a recent saloon brawl iu Mackinaw City. Patrick and Jqnss were In the Stlmpson House saloon both of them drinking beyond the legal limit when the fo:mer attempted to throw Jones out of the door. Jones' heel caught In the door sill and he plunged for ward striking his head ou the cement walk. The man died an hour later. The "regulated M saloon had claimed auottur victim and had stamped its brand of crime on still another of its patrons. Moro lives have been lost through saloon tights and druuken quarrels In Michigan during the past four months than during any period in Michigan history, and these crimes and deaths have all occurred in "regu lated" liquor selling places, in saloons legally vouched for by the Michigan Bonding and Surety company.

VETCH AS A FERTILIZER While advocating the use of Alfalfa Cover to renovate and enrich our sandy lands, theattentlon of theseck er alter Information on this point Is called to the virtue to be found in vetch, which Is being largely ued al so for this purpose. In fact sorno are now claiming that vetch Is by far the most valuable plant for this purpose. An Indiana Correspondent, writing to the Indiana Farmer. gives tills sub ject from'hls own experience as fol lows: lam now In the sixth year of mv ex periments with vetch. The hrst year I experimented with two acres. This year, 1911, I plowed under and followed wlUi corn, grown less ,than tiftv acres per year. I have grown it on all kinds of soil, except muck, and find it suitable to any soil upon which 1 have grown it. However with me, it lias always grown best on the poorest soli, which makes it the most valuable of fertilizing plants. I have sown It as late as August 30, but advise sowing from July 15 to August 15. September sowing Is too late for the latitude north of the Ohio river. Vetch should be followed with coin, tobacco, clover, potatoes, cr any crop but vheat. If followed by wheat there will be enough vetch to ripen Its seed with the wheat to make a dock at the elevator; aithouzh I claim that the grain to the soil whih vetch gives is worth more then the dock you may receive. After I had experimented with vetch for three years 1 said that the vetch plant was the most valu able fertilizing plant ever discovered and now after an additional three years experminting witli the plant, 1 a,m convinced that I did not make the statement too s rong. It is the most valuable fertilizing plant . for the reasons: First. It is easily grown and grows between the cuitiv.il in and plowing seasons, covering find storing nitro gen in the soil as no other plant will. Second. As a nitrogen gatherer li has no equal. It will In one season put into the soil nitrogen worth $5 per acre. Third. No plant gives so mtich humus to the soil as is given by the foliage and roots of the vetch plant.' Fourth. Its tine root system has no equal for breaking uu the surface and sub-soil. Fifth. Great masses or vetch plowed under enables crops to resist Uroui h and make vigorous and healthy growth of plants.

BOOSINGER DEPENDABLE FURS In the'early days when the manufacture of fur garments was in its infancy, people bought furs mainly with a view to their warmth and comfort. As the industry has grown, more and more attention has been given to appearance, un til now the wearer of furs has come to look for distinction and style in furs, as much as in other garments. The merchant who handles Dependable Furs is in a position to cater to the most critical, because they are, first of all, of the very best quality and in addi tion tn Hiia. thv nnssnss thnt, distinpHon which comes from close attention to the style of garment. Every garment in our store is made up in the style best calculated to bring out the beauty and attractive ness of the natural fur, while it in no way detracts from the comfort of tho garment or from the wearing quality of the fur itself. Satisfaction in fur garments must be based upon the grade of material used and the wear they are subjected to. The nature of tho fur cannot be changed. We are always ready to advise as to the wearing quality of any fur. Our stock consists of White Iceland Fox, .Russian Ilacoon, Blue Wolf, Flat Jap, Mink, Isabella Oppcssuin and many other beautiful things in up-to-date styles. Look in our north window.
