That concrete sidewalk from;
the depot to main has not been
|| started yet. We have the men
and the mateiial to build it. The
men need the work and, if a
stait should be made, then would
be a demand for material, no
doubt. Let, the men who are
I able and who have the material
% to sell, start the work and others
,-will follow. We will live here
r anyway and so why not make it
as pleasant,as possible.
It is not generally known that
the - ccrfmon soda-fountain
diink known as “Coca Cola” is
, a diug: but such is the fact.
jhis drink is a compound of caf-
£en and cocain sweetened to the
taste. The sales "manager the
)cca Cola Co. says that the caf-
iien in their product is made
from tea. Caffein can be extrac-
> cd from tea or coffee or from the
Lola nut. It is the active,.stim-
ulating principle in tea or coffee.
Dr. Haivey" W. Wiley, chief of
utfie Geverment Bureau of Chem-
ist! ys says: ”When the caffein is
separated from tea and coffee,
and used as a separate /drug, it
U exerts a much more specific action
, upon the system than when in
natural combination. Its general
effect is to induce that unhappy
state, described as nervousness,
If with deranged digestion and im-
paired health. “ The other active
element is cocain, which is the
p most enslaving and degrading
ding known to mankind. The
cceain fiend is an abject slave,
ruined in body, mind, and soul
i« before he has ended his motal
k career. This one drink 13 doing
so much harm that the report of
the government chemist says;
‘ “The prevalence of the coca-cola
t fien.d is becoming a matter of im-
portance and concern.” We
jsheuld think so. The drink is
effective in allaying the sense of
fatigue by deadening the nerves
that carry the message to the
brain. The tired condition i*
there still, but the brain no long-
er is told of the fact. Parents
refuse to allow tbier children to
have even weak tea are? coffee,
^ yet allow them to drink this drug

They raid your bed to rob you of

HOW SWISS PEASANTS TOIL
f i some Hemes Silk Looms Have
Never Stopped in Many
Americans often wonder how it
is possible for the Swiss to produce
articles requiring so much hand la-
bor at such ridiculously ✓low prices,
says a consular report. To under-
stand the question, one must to a
certain extent study the sociological
side of the peasant life. I am very
much impressed with the industry
of the people. Of course during the
summer their work is largely in the
fields, hut the moment-the crops are
harvested and the wood cut and
stored for the winter the entire
peasant family engages itself in in-
door work, such as weaving or knit-
ting on the looms (always loaned to
the peasant by the large manufac-
turers of knit and straw goods).
I know personally of one family
of peasants, and this is not in the
least a unique case, but is typical of
probably 75 per cent, of these peas-
ant families, who work during the
six winter months of the year at
three looms weaving narrow silk
and cotton tapes. This family, con-
sists of four persons who are grown
up, and sewn children, whose labor
is available out of school hours, and
every winter for several years two
of the looms have never stopped
night or day, except for oiling or
the introduction of new raw mate-
rial. The third loom is run only
during the daytime-by the younger
children when home from school.
These peasants are industrious
and sober people, and I am in-
formed authoritatively are satisfied
with a daily profit on the work of
the entire r'itpilt for six Aonths of
winter. This is characteristic of
the labor o’ the Swiss, and especial-
ly of the “unskilled” labor, which
produces the tetraw and imitation
straw braids, enabling the Swiss
manufacturers to ship to the United
States in spite of American duties
in competition with American work-

Smith's Nerve Restorer should

ders, sudh as Headache, Back-
ache, Neuralgia. Fits, Dizziness,
Epilepsy, St. Vitus Dance, etc.
It restores nervous energy. A
remedy that will restore strength
to the nerves and allay those
nervous spasms. Will cure or
benefit these diseases; it has been
wonderfully effective for these
maladies. We believe that it is
a valuable specific for these
dreaded afflictions and we want
persons troubled with nervous-

you wasting your ammunition on the
small crowd that would trade with
you anyway, or do you want to reach
those who are not particularly inter-

make your appeal for trade to the

The real Union man Is above all
else a reasonable man. He is willing
to give and to take from his oppon-
ent. He has sense., enough to realize
(hat it is conditions and not theories
that make up his environment, 554
that it is to the conditions as they
are that he must adapt himself, and
not to things as they ought to be, and,
let us hope, some sweet day, will be.
He is selfish as to his class, and he
must be to meet the conditions. He
Is generous, however, not taking a
“tooth for a tooth,” for if the day of
right conditions eVer comes, It will
be through concessions all round, and
he is the man who is willing to go
his full distance and a little further.

Magnificent Collection of Paintings at
Texas State Fair.
Alex Sanger, director of the art de-
partment of the Texas State Fair at
Dallas for the twenty-third annual
meet, October 17 to Noveipber 1, next,
has recently returned f-rom the East.
While in the metropolis Mr. Sanger
called on Julian Onderdonk, who has
charge of selecting the paintings that
will be exhibited in the art depart-
ment this ‘year. Mr. Onderdonk pre-
dicted that for the Fair of 1908 will
be gathered the finest collection of
paintings ever brought South. He
stated that the artists of the East ap
preciated the efforts of the Fair man-
agement in the encouragement of the
fine arts in this section, expending, as
they have done, $35,000 in the erection
of a iadies’ textile and art building,
were more than willing to loan
their pictures for exhibition purposes.
Visitors of last year will recall the
magnificent collection, which, how-
ever, was not displayed to the best
advantage on account of the lack of
proper facilities for light and ventila-
tion. In the new hall, constructed
this year, with 232 lineal feet of wall
space, the light and ventilation comes
from a great dome glass and ’steel,
rising fifty-five feet above the hard
wood floor of the hall. This will af-
ford the proper light, so essential in

Enlarging Your Business
If you are in
business and you
want to make
more money you
will read every
word we have to
say. Are you
money for ad-
vertising in hap-
as if intended
for charity, or do you adver-
tise for direct results?
Did you ever stop to think
how your advertising can be
made a source of profit to
you, and how its value can be
measured in dollars and
cents. If you have not, you
are throwing money away.
Advertising is a modern
business necessity, but must
be conducted on business
principles. If you are not
satisfied with your advertising
you should set aside a certain
amount of money to be spent
annually, and then carefully
note the effect it has in in-
creasing your volume of busi-
ness; whether a io, 20 or 30
per cent increase. If you
watch this gain from year to
you will become intensely in-
terested in your advertising,
and how you can make it en-
large your business.
If you try this method we
believe you will' not want to
let a single issue of this paper
go to press without something
from your store.
We will be pleased to have
you call on us, and we will
take pleasure in explaining
our annual contract for so
many inches, and how it can be
used in whatever amount that
6eems necessary to you.
If you can sell goods over
the counter we can also show
you why this paper will best
