Lower Test and Lower Price
the Result of Legis
Watertown, April 17.—As the result
a law passed by tbe 1900 session
"f the South Dakota legislature, per
n itting the sale in South Dakota of a
test gasoline, the Standard Oil
tnpany today announced to the retail
1 alers in this city tnat the wholesale
I i ice of gasoline will be reduced 2
ate per gallon.
In its announcement to the dealers
the company explains that tbe reduc
tion is the direct reFult of this legisla
tion. The company furthei Bays that
it is enacted to market the gasoline
cheaper because the lower test can be
made from western crude, and biought
here for less freight.
Careful investigation, says the com
pany, by the ablest chemists proves
that tne lower test gasoline is tully
the eqnal of tbe highest test in every
respect, and superior in many,namely:
it produces more neat units, which
means more light and power per gal
lon. and a gallon will last longer
and do better work for heat.light and
Tbe company advisee tbe handling
of tbe lowest test gasoline exclusively,
but will Bhip the other if the mer
chants so insist.
Deliberation His Guide.
Under President Tuft's calm, judicial
administration the country may confi
dently expect to settle down to a
smooth running course of events, un
shaken by those social and political
and personal jars that have so seri
ously detracted from the efficiency and
the credit of the Roosevelt administra
tion. It is safe to say that no man
ever has come to the presidency with
a more varied and helpful experieine
In public affairs and with a mind bet
ter trained to calm Judicial considera
tion of all important subjects. Delib
eration will guide the actions of the
head of the nation.—Fort Smith (Ark.)
Greatest Feat of Ocean Liner.
Liverpool, April 21.—The Maure
tania, which has arrived from New
York, concluded the last portion of
her trip from Queenstown to Skerries
islets, about 200 miles, at the speed
of twenty-nini"* knots an hour, a feat
never before accomplished by an ocean
Foley's Honey and Tar is a safeguard
against serious results from spring colds
which intlame the lungs and develop
into pneumonia. Avoid counterfeits by
insisting upon having the genuine Fol
ey's Honey and Tar, which contains no
harmful drugs. J. II. Anderso.
If you have backache and urinary
troubles you should take Foley's Kidney
Remedy to strengthen and build up the
kidney so they will act properly, as a
serious kidney trouble may develop—J.

CASH IS KING
Paying cash with order for goods, or
paying cash on delivery of same is
the most satisfactory way of trading
as well as the most gratifying when
checking over the month's allowance
for household expenses. How an
noying it is on receiving your allow
ance, to think that it all must be
paid out within three or four hours,
it's like "paying for a dead horse".
Try the Ginder Market for a month
and see if you don't have some of
vour allowance at th 2 end of that
ume, for GASH IS KING.
