That it is not necessary for you
to go to some ethe rcity or send
away to buy anything.
The stoves of your city are in a
position to supply your every want.
They sell at reasonable prices the
highest quality of merchandise.
Along with the growth of your
city, your home merchants are al-
ways making improvements and add-
ing to their stocks to take care of
increasing business—always keeping
in stock the best merchandise at a
price that can’t he beat elsewhere.
Local merchants aim to retain trade
by furnishing better service and bet-
ter quality at better terms and prices.
If you don’t read local advertise-
ments and buy from your local mer-
chants, you are a loser.
People who earn money in pne city
and spend it in another should move
to the other city. It will be no loss

That the gentle are of “passing the
j buck” is practiced too much in some ■
j Many of the so-called leading citi-
; zens are long on talk and short on
doing any real constructive work.
When it conges to work, they “pass
* the buck."
“Buck passing!’ is on the increase.
If some cities took a census of their
“buck passers,” the result would be
astonishing. They would find enough
citizens to build another city—pro-
vided tlic y could be turned into com-
munity workers. If they wo ked as
hard in building their home city as
they do in “passing the buck,” their
city would soon be twice its present
The “buck passers” believe in a
fifty-fifty proposition. They will do
the talking for their part and the
other fellows can spend their money
and do the work.
OF MARRIED LIKE
A sparkling, intimate story of mar-
ried life, beautifully acted by a group
of outstanding cinema stars, made of
“Charming Sinners” a particularly
lively and entertaining show . . smart
dialog, clever repartee, smashing cli-
matic situations keep audiences on
the “qui vive” throughout the play.
It, is a new revelation in talking
screen pictures, showing today at the
Ituth Chattertrm. as the wise wife,
tired of her husband’s philandering,
decides to punish him, once and for
all. She chooses the dignified method
of repaying him in nis own coin by
pretending to give her affections to
r.n old admirer, William Powell. She
fools her husband in clever fashino,
re-awakens some of the romance
which appeared dead to her forever
and brings about a re-adjustment in
her home which no amount of scan-
dal or ranting could accomplish. Clive

THE hitch-hik::u passes |
Hitch-hikers, who formerly manag- j
ed to get fro mplaee to place in |
great numbers and in luxury merely j
by lifting a thumb ou the highway,!
are becoming fewer, we are informed |
from several sources. The reason is j
that motorists are less disposed to ;
take into their cars self-invited 1
guests. Several States, indeed have
enacted laws against the practice of ;
soliciting rides. Similar laws are j
contemplated in other States.
The reason is, of course, the numer- |
ous instances of holdups of motorists :
by strangers who have been picked!
up along the road. A contributory j
cause is the lesson learned by motor- j
ists that the owner of a car is legally j
responsible for injui'ies that may be i
suffered by a passenger while in the j
car. Several damage suits, in which
a hitch-hiker sought compensation j
for injuries, have been decided against j
motorists, and the news has spread !
j Hitch-hiking, when it started, was
not an unpleasant feature of a cross- <
1 country drive for motorists. The j
thumb signal on the road meant com- j
| panionship on the drive and an op- j
! portunity to render a service to a
i fellow man. But criminals took up j
, the practice, got into cars, and then j
; proceeded to hold up their benefact- j
i or, leaving him without his purse and .
often without his car, or even his life, j
