Why Pay Eiorliitant Prices

Can Do Better?
All machines that I handle are

enge the world to offer a better $20
machine for $20, or a better $40 ma

Ashwoop, April 5. The Home Mis

Friday night at the home of Miss Annie
Dobbins. The proceeds will be used for
the benefit of the needy. The enter
tainment was profitable and enjoyable
One of the features of the evening was
the presentation of two baskets of
candy to the most popular young lady
and gentleman in the house. This
ditlicult question was decided by ballot.
The following gentlemen receiving
equal number of votes, they drew
straws for the prize: Kev. S. P.'Hawes,
Messrs. Ernest Dixon, Wilson Dobbins
and Julius Fleming. The successful
one, Mr. Julius Fleming, being urged
to respond, made a speech, which, al
though short, was thoroughly appro
priate, and the storm of applause
proved that in this case brevity was
certainly the sold of wit. Miss Mabel
Stephenson and Miss Christine Wat
kins were voted the most popular
young ladies. Miss Christine drew the
winning straw. A heartfelt pity was
expressed bv quite a number for the
three young gentlemen who bad their
speeches in readiness when they should
receive the prize, llieit air castles
