Rats Don't Eat
Safe Home Matches
When a fire occurs
and no one knows
what caused it, the
average man is apt
to say: "I guess it
was rats. They eat
matches, you know."
Rats don't eat Safe
They can't be made
to eat them. That
has been proven,time
Safe Home Matches are
made of ingredients
which, although non
poisonous, are obnoxious
Safe Home Matches light
easily, but not too easily.
They are safe safe and
The sticks are extra long,
and extra strong. Safety
They are non-poisonous.
Safety once more.
They cost no more than
other brands of matches.
As a matter of fact, they
cost less, because every

Does marriage change a person?
Well, Just by way of illustration
there's the case of Zora, who is
known as the bravest woman in the
world. Once upon a time Zora was
a society woman with no thought of
the circus. But when she appears
In this city with the Sells-Floto Clr
cus and Buffalo Bill (himself)
which is to exhibit here Wednesday
Aug. 12th, she will come as the train
er of the greatest herds of tractable
elephants in the world. And mar
riage was the cause of it all.
"There was a time when I didn't
even know the habits of an elephant"
Zora said recently. "I never even
had been around one. Then I met
the man who was to be my husband.
He was an animal trainer and natur
ally I became Interested. And the
beasts which drew my attention the
most were the elephants.
"Day after day I watched them
and learned their habits and dis
covered two things, that I liked them
and that they liked me.
' 'Better become an elephant train
er, my Husband Joked. But with
the remark I became serious.
I believe I win, was my an
swer, and that day. I set to work.
"Bit by bit I drew from my bus
band all he knew concerning ani
mals and their training. I purchas
ed books on animal training and
studied them. At last I succeeded
in my aim. And that's the reason'
Lucia Zora smiled prettily "I
am the elephant trainer of the Sells-Floto-Buffalo
BUI attractions. But
the real reason is, of course, because
I got married."
