Caution to Consumers of Coal Oil.
KJrThU company from this date will uot handle IliHlinuiCO Oil and lnro-
II 110 for the following reasons: illHliriltico Oil Tank Go. who claim to own
these Trade Mark brands have not during several years past had any regular source of Oil
supplies but have received Insurance Oil and PurollllO from sources where they
could buy cheapest without rejrurd to quality. Intmriutco Oil is simply
any quality of Water White oil. Consumers havo no KUliriintoo of its Fire
Test or purity. 1'urolilio is simply any quality of 74 0 Gasoline. As Gasoline
varies great'y in purity consumers should only buy under the proper name of 74 s Gas-
oline and then be sure the goods are guaranteed by responsible parties. The quality ol
IllHUrailCO Oil and l'tirolilie which has been furnished by Insurance Oil Tank
Co. has almost entirely stopped the demand but we wish to warn intended purchasers we
will not he rcsponnlhle for these brands. Very Respectfully

Effect of ISaiigs on (ilrls.
rom tho Wichita (Ivan.) Times.
Bangs on a girl gives her an unruly look
like a cow with a board over her face. Take
ib gentlest cow in the world and put a boatd
over her face and turn her out in a pasture
and she gets the reputation of being unruly
and you would swear the would jump fences
and raised 'merry Jiitles and you wouldn't
give so mucn ioj tier oy $10 only lor beef.
It is so with the girl. K she wears her hair
on her forehead or brushed back or even
had Irizzes and has a good look you will go
rour oouom unuar on ner and leel that she
s as good as gold and that when she tells
her young man that she loves him there is no
discount on it and no giggling back ; but
lane tne same gin wun ner iront hair banged
and when she looks at you you fell as though
sne wouiu hook ana you can't trust her. she
has a fence jumping look that makes a young
man leeias mougn nc wouiun 1 leel sale un-
less she was tied hand and foot so she
couldn't get out of the pasture. A girl with
bangs may try to be good and true but I t's
awful hard work. When she looks at her
self in the glass and sees the nuarter of fore
head she says to herself: ! am danger-
ous; they want to look out for mc." she
thinks she is all right but she is constantly
doing that which a girl with her hair brushed
back would not think of doing. The bang
girl may belong to the church and try to put
on a pious look while the hymn is being read.
But she will look out from behind those
bangs sideways at some meek and lowly
young Christian who is trying to get his mind
fixed on the hymn and he will get his mind
fixed on her and it will break him all up and
he won't know whether he is singing "A.
charge to keep Ih ave" or "She's a Daisy."
The bang girl may place her bangs down on
the back of the pew ahead of her during the
morning prayer and try to be good but her
corset will be too tight and as she hitches
around to ease the pain one eye will rise like
me m rning sun over the back ot the pew
and that eye will catch the eye of a young
man two seats to the right who is trying to
over his face with one hand while he tries to
keep the flies off of the pomade on his hair
with the other and his interest in the prayer
will be knocked into a cocked hat. The
banging ol a girl's hair changes the whole na-
ture of the little wretch and she becomes as a
gun that is loaded. You take a picture of
"bvingeline and bang her hair and she
would look as though she would "run at"
leople. How would Mrs. Van Cott the al-
eged female preacher look with her hair
banged 7 It is just the same with boys. You
take a nice pious Sunday school boy who
can repsat 300 verses of the New Testament
and cut his hair with a clipper and he will
iookiikc tug wuson.

"Talk of opening oysters" said old Hurri-
