Dear Sirs : There are several ways
of cheating in milk. An old-fashioned
way is to water it. Nobody waters
it now. A better way is to take out
the cream rich milk with the cream
taken out is as good as poor milk
with its cream all in.
But we needn't go into the particu
lars. You don't rob your milk and your
Paint is as easy as milk to cheat
with. Good paint ia as rare as good
milk ; for human nature is much the
same in milk men and paint men.
You are just and true with your
milk; so are we with our paint. De
voe lead and zinc is twice as good as
good as pure white lead; lasts twice
as long. There's twice as much but
ter in it. Yours truly,

When things are "the best" they
become "the best selling." Abraham
Hare, a leading druggist of Bellville,
O., writes: ''Electric Bitters are the
best selling bitters I have bandied in
20 years. You know why ? Most dis
eases begin in disorders of stomach,
liver, kidneys, bowels, blood and
nerves. Electric Bitters tones up the
stomach, regulates liver, kidneys and
bowels, purities the blood, strength
ens the nerves, hencecures multitudes
of maladies. It builds up the entire
system, Pute new life and vigor into
any weak, sickly, rundown man or
woman. Price 50 cents. Sold by

Millions Given Away.
It is certainly gratifying to the
public to know of one concern which
is not afraid to be generous. The
proprietors of Dr. King's New Discov

Colds, have given away over ten mill

faction of knowing it has cured thou
sands of hopeless cases. Asthma,
Bronchitis, La Grippe and all Throat,
Chest and Lung diseases are surely
cured by it. Call on U. J. Dwinell,
Druggist, and get a free trial bottle.
Regular size 50c and $ 1.00. Every
bottle guaranteed.

"For two years all efforts to cure
Eczema ii the palms of my hands

(Chicago News )
Once upon a time t here wan a Lone
ly and Deserving Girl named Clara,
who was gettiDg so near thirty that
she didn't want to talk about it. She
traveled with the thoroughbreds and
was always among those present ; so
it was hard to understand why she
hadn't married. Ocher gills notes
good looking or accomplished bad
been grabbed off when ttuy were buds.
Already some ot them were beginning
to act as chaperons for Clara. They
were keeping tab on Clara's age, too,
and begun to think that she would
land on the bargain counter and have
to be satisfied with a widower who
wore a toupee and dved his eye
brows. Clara was something of a mind
reader. She knew that the friends of
her youth were predicting a hard fin
ish for her, so she decided to fool
them. And she knpw that it behoov
ed her to catch on belore the children
started in to call her auntie.
Now it is not to be inferred that
Clara was what the underwriters call
a bad risk. She never had been a
drug on the market. When she went
to a hop she didn't have to wait for
ladies' choice in order to swing into
the mezy. In fact, she had been en
gaged now and thenftafst for prac
tice, and she had received offers from
Eome of the hold-over bachelors who
went around proposing from force of
habit. But Clara was not out for
any man who had been turned down
elsewhere. She wanted the right kind
and slie was going to do the picking
Having made an inventory of the
possibilities, she selected the treasur
er of the shoe factory and decided
that she could love him without
straining herself. He was about her
own age and was almost as good
looking as a Gibson man, and had
Al prospects. It would be no easy
job to land him, however, because the
competition was very keen and he
was wary, trying to be a kind friend
to every girl he knew, but playing no
favorites. He kept the parents guess
ing. The treasurer of the shoe facto
ry was what any society paper would
can a great eaten.
Clara got busy with herself and
hatched a scheme. When all the
smart set got ready to pike away for
the heated term, Clara surprised her
friend by guessing she would remain
nt'home. It was the very thing to
do, because all the social head-liners
who could command the price were
supposed to flirt off to a summer ho
tel and loiter on the pine veranda and
try to think they were recuperating.
Clara told her mother to go, as us
ual, but she would stay at home and
be a companion to poor, lonesome
papa. So all the women went iff to
the resorts with their cameras and
talcum powder and witch hazel and
Clara was left in town with the men.
It is a traditional fact that there is
no social lifrf in town during the dog
days. But there is nothing to pre
vent a bright girl from starting some
thing. That is what Clara did.
She stocked up the refrigerator and
bung a hammock on thelawn with a
few easy chairs around it, The young
men marooned In town heard of the
good thing and no one had to tear
tLeir garments to induce them to
come. They arrived at the rate of
from seven to twelve anight and dip
ped into papa s cigars and the liquid
nourishment, regardless. Although
Clara had remained in town to act as
companion to papa, it was noticed
that when she had all the company
in the evening papa either had been
chloroformed and put to bed or else
he had his orders to stay under
Clara did not send for the treasurer
of the shoe factory. She knew better
than to go out alter her prey. She
allowed him to find his way to the
house with the others. When became
she did not chide him for failing to
make bis party call: neither did she
rush toward him with a low cry of
iov. thereby tipping her hand. She
knew that the treasurer of the shoe
factory was next to all those board
ing school tactics and could not be
handled by the methods that go with
the college students. Clara had en
joyed about ten yeurs' experience in
handling the creatures and she had
learned to labor and to wait. She
simply led him into the circle and
took his order nnd allowed him to sit
there in the gloaming and observe
how popular she was. All the men
were scrapping to see which would be
next tasit in the hammock with her.
It. looked for awhile as though Clara
would have to give o it checks the
6ime as in a barbershop. Late that
night when the men walked home
ward together they remarked thut
Clara was a warm hostess.
Nxt evening the treasurer of the
shoe factory was back on the lawn.
So were all tLe others. They said
there was no beating a place where
yen could play shirt waist man un
der the trees and have a fairy queen
in white come and push cold drinks
at you and not have to sign any tick
et. Thpy com postd flattering songs
about Clara and every time she mov
ed there was a man right there with
a sofa cushion to help her to be com
fortable. In the meantime the othergirls out
the summer resorts were doing the
best they could with these high school
cadets, wearing tidies around their
hats, who would rather go out in a
ca t boat and get their arms tanned
than to remain on shore and win the
hontt love of an American girl, with
a string to it.
Clara's work about this time was
ever so glossy. She rjegan by asking
the treasurer of the shoe factory to
come with her to the refrigerator to
get out some more imported ginser
ale. All the men volunteered to help
and two or three wanted to tag
along, but Clara drove them back.
They were gone a long time because
the treasurer had to draw all the
corks, and they fussed around to
gether in the pantry fixing upalunch
for the boys. Clara told him how
strong and handy he was, until he
felt an increase in chest measurement.
On successiye evenings she had the
treasurer supervise all the ariange
ments. The hired girl had every eve
ening out, because it was so much
more jolly to go out and run the
place yourself. In less than a week
the treasurer was giving orders round
the house. Every evening she would
get him back to the kitchen and tie
an apron around him and ask what
she should do nexT. She madbim
out to be the only one who could be
trusted. The others were company
but he was one of the family. And
although he was being worked like
creamery butter he never suspected
He" game was to domesticate him
in advance and let him have a fore
taste ot wnat it is to be boss of your
own house except as to the billsr The
pantry was full of home delicacies
euch as he couldn't get at the hotel,
and the service is the best ever. Clara
was right at his elbow with a willing
It didn't take him long to realize
that he was missing a lot by remain
ing single. He wondered why he had
been so slow in getting onto Clara's
good point. Also he wondered if it
was any open and shut certainty
when a dcz-n other men, some of them
younger and more gallus, were at
her in full cry. -
Clara bad pulled him in,strunga
hung over the side of the boat.
Of course, if all tha other girls had
bten in town, they would have turn
bled long before it ran into a certain
ty and probably they would have
formed a V and rushed in to break up
the play. But the other girls were
far away with the old men and the
seminary striplings. Clara had an
open field with no need of any inter
fering or blocking, and if she fell
down it was her own fault. Besides
she had all these other admirers set
out as decoys to prove that if he did
n't, somebody else might.
The treasurer of the shoe factory
got a large rally on himself and she
had to give in and make a promise.
He loves to tell callers how he pro
posed to his wife in the kitchen and
he doesn't know to this day that she
was expecting it.
Moral : As soon as he begins to
frequent the back rooms of the house
measure him lor the harness.
