The Enster tift should bo in keeping with
customs prevailing at this spring festival.
A modish piece of jewelry, which-enhances
the beauty of spring cloths, is a charming
Easter gift. A silver bud holder, or a cut
glass basket for flowers, is especially
appropriate for an EasteP present
Rosaries and crosses are most fitting of all
confirmation presents. f
Clinton's being preeminently the gift store,
has many nrticles, at inexpensive prices,
in keeping with the spirt of Easter time.

If War Comes
You may be sure that Dodge Brothers will still he
making motor cars.
The first test of motor cars in military use
in the United States, was the recent Villa chase
and the mobilization on the Mexican border.
Among the 1100 passenger cars used by the gov
ernment on the border, there were G27 Dodge
Brothers' cars, more than one-half of this one
make, with over 100 makers of other cars anx
ious to sell the government. And the only rea
son there was not more Dodges was that they
could not be had at that time, for every one of
these cars were bought from the regular dealers
at the retail price. Each and every one of these
cars made good under the most strenuous ser
vice ever known, in fact "Death Valley Dodge,"
was outdone daily. Ask any of the boys who
were down on the border what they know and
believe of the endurance of Dodge cars.
Yes, Dodge Brothers' Works was built, to
make cars belter, and the government knows it,
x for they have tested their product. So, if we do
have war, Dodge Brothers' Works will be making
better cars for the government. Will you get
your Dodge before that time?
