For 30 days beginning Monday July 6 we will run a clearance sale. The
goods were marked right at first but as a special inducement we have
put the knife to work and have made prices so low that you can't afford
not to avail yourself of the opportunity to buy seasonable merchandise.
We have not the space to mention every article but if you will examine the
following prices or better still if you will come in and let us show you
the goods it will be time well spent. EVERYTHING WILL
BE MARKED IN RED FIGURES.

Whatever you do on a hot day
don't consult the thermometer.
As soon as you have seen the

to cool off by .sitting on the

Try to keep your mind sweet
and pure and calm. If you've

Don't worry. Care killed a

Smith's advice and literally

until the autumnal days and
then the air is so bracing and
the prospect so pleasing that
! you couldn't worry if you tried.
Above all don't talk about

The Canyon City News was
much exercised last week be-
cause -Memphis went to Claren-
don and failed to tell them just
how much she expected to give
for the Baptist College. The
boys all seem to be a little wor
ried about this matter but when
the proper time comes if they
are from Missouri they will be
"showed." The proper conduct
of a matter of this kind is not
shouting over the world just
what you can do or propose to
do but to instead arrange your
affairs at home and when the
time conies to just step up and
do it. Memphis does not pro-
pose anything but fair play.
A Clarendon man of promi-
nence said the other day that
judging by the enthusiasm
shown by Memphis that she
should have the Baptist college
whether she gets it or not.
Speaking of the Fourth of
July celebration being a success
did you ever know Memphis to
start in to do anything and
fail? She is going to do the
same thing in the matter of se
curing the Baptist college.
The city health board says
that things are not as they
should be yet. Hides hanging
around the square hog pens
etc. must be cleaned up or
placed where the odor will not
offend. These physicians have
been given charge of the clean-
ing up so let's help them.

In preparing for your summer
outing a little forethought may
save you no end of trouble. .Mr.
John II. Manly a dry goods
merchant of Bellville R. I.
while packing an outfit for
camping a few weeks on Narra
gansett Bay put in a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy for emer-
gency use. The second day in
camp his little boy was taken
with cramp colic. The first dose
of this remedy gave relief and
! the second dose effected a cure.
Think of the pain and suffering
this boy would have had to en-
dure without this remedy at
hand to relieve him. Such cases
often result fatally. ' For sale
