CANADA'S BIG ISSUE, A TARIFF
Canada hai had one of the hottest
political campaigns in its history, and
what do you suppose the big issue is ?
The tariff. Most Canadians believe a
low tariff will mean that American
products will pour across the border.
Canada's Conservative party wants a
high tariff; the Liberal, a moderate
tariff: the farmers, with America's
big markets nnd implement factories
J next door, want abolition of tariff on
looasiuiis, inucimiery mm uiiiuiiiic.uo
used on farm", and free trude with
England in 5 years. The Agrarian, or
Farmers' party, in Canada, is of re
lent growth, but has spread over the
whole dominion.

You are mine." etc.
Gentle reader I believe every child in Durant and Bryan County should have u
liberal share of candy this Christmas. Times are hard, but if the child could awake
and find a stocking fat with candy the Christmas 'Spirit would Immediately dominate,
and the cost is so small.
The Prune Shop placed with Loose-Wiles Candy Co., of Kansas City, by far the
largest exclusive candy order going to a retail establishment, In the history of Durant.
One hundred palls of thirty to forty pound average, totaling over 3,000 pounds
of their high grade candles freBh from the great Loose-Wiles Candy Kitchens In
Kansas City. Time was short; they were anxlouB to sell, and by placing such an or
der we virtually named our own price.
One lot consists of Fudge, Cocoanut Squares, Jelly beans, KIbbcb, Peanut
SuuareB and Chocolate DropB, which we will sell at lDc per pound In Bmall Iota;larger
quantities cheaper. This Ib not cheap, hard carried over stuff like a great many of ub
merchants' sold last year, but fresh new varieties JuBt an named abovo read that list
over again. Also one lot fresh Christmas Mixed at 12 l-2c per pound small lots,
quantities cheaper. Special prices by the pall to Churches, SchoolB and Entertain
ments. Don't wait until the laBt minute. This Ib all we'll have this Christmas. We win
nut vour name on your purchases and take care of It until Christmas Eve. No charge
for this service. You are welcome to thlflcandy stock, whether you want half pound
Back, or 30 pound pall.
