Our constant endeavor is to
please all who trade at our
store, for we realize that a
pleased customer is the best
advertisement any business
man can have. With this in
view, we refrain from all

other hand, our policy is to
keep the very best merchan-
dise which money can buy
and satisfy ourselves with a
living profit. If you will
make our store your trading
place for 1906, we believe that
our fair, square way of treat-

vince you that we are worthy
of the splendid business which

Large Crowd Assemble to Witness
Final Exercises of Graduating
At the appointed hour on last Fri-
day evening, a large audience, all
of whom could not be seated, had
assembled to witness the program
prepared by the graduating class of
the public schools.
The exercises were begun with
an invocation by Elder J. N. Wooten
after which the attentive crowd
listened spell-bound to the essays
and orations, and the interspersed
music by the Hereford Orchestra.
Too much cannot be said for the
high character of the work which
was done by this, the first graduating
class of the Hereford Public Schools.
The work not only indicated marked
ability on the part of the pupils, but
showed that their teachers had been
faithful in giving them thorough and
The class this year was composed
of the following: Sam Bratton, Earl
Kibbe, Myrtle Witherspoon, Leta
Boone, Nellie Robinson, Nannie
Hughes, Bessie Lay, Audrey Argo
and Pattie Estes.
At the conclusion, Judge Russell
addressed the class in a most im-
pressive manner, in connection of
which, he presented the diplomas.
Special mention should also be
made ot the splendid educational
address by T. J. Graves, represent-
ing the school board. Mr. Graves
naturally has a very deep interest in
the public schools, having been
president of the board of trustees
for several years. This, with the
large audience before him, seemed
to be the right inspiration and an
address was made which was wel-
comed by all who heard it. Mr.
Graves pointed out that the growth
of the school has been almost
phenomenal and that while we have
been educating Missouri the past
year, we may as well prepare to
take care of Illinois and Iowa next
session. Special stress was placed
upon the urgent need of more room
at the public school as well as other
features of the school work.
Patrons and friends went to their
homes after the program was over
feeling a just pride in our public
schools and with hearts filled with
gratitude to the teachers who have
labored so faithfully for their girls
and boys the past year.

You must fiirst know Nannie, the peerless

God knows the work of the man that is just,

She learns the sweet lessons from Nature's

In politics, Bratton his country will serve,

With noblest of purpose, she goes in the

That Fountain Pen.
Have you tried using one ? If
not, you can't realize its true worth.
It is always ready when you need it
and no business man can well afford
to miss the convenience which is
afforded by the fight kind of foun-

is Conkland's sell-filler. If you
will try one you will use no other.

of this excellent pen to you. 15-2t
