Your Grandfather Had A Big Heavy Watch
not much of a timekeeper and very expensive in upkeep.
Perhaps for sentimental reasons you are wearing it today.
You arc wrong. You are risking the loss of a valued
hierloom without any resulting advantage. On the contrary,
hindered by its inaccuracy, you are handicapped in your use
ol many other modern facilities. Put your grandfather's
watch where it belongs in a safe place.
Buy one of our handsome $25.00 filled gold

I Tho Common People.
I Coronets, miters, military display,
I the pomp of war, wide colonics nnd a
I huge emplro are, in my view, nil tri-
lies, light as air and not worth consid
ering, unless with them you can have
a fair share of comfort, contentment
and happiness among tho great body
of tho peoplo. Palaces, baronial cas
tles, great halls, stately mansions, do
not make a nation. Tho nation in ev
ery country dwells in tho cottage, and
unless the light of your constitution
can shine there, unless the beauty of
your legislation nnd tho excellence of
your statesmanship nt e impressed there
on the feelings and condition of tho
people, rely upon it, you have yet to
learn tho duties of government. John
