Make your travel
dream come true
Perhaps you were unable to find time for a
vacation trip during the summer. Don’t be
satisfied to merely regret it.
Go to California—NOW—where days are fill
ed with sunshine and nights are uniformly cool
and clear. There is something out there w hich
makes a strong appeal to everybody. Golf, ten
nis, motoring over perfect highways, surf-bath
ing, mountain-climbing, dancing, or just resting
among the orange groves and flowers.
Excursion fares prevail. Go one way—return
another, and stop off where you wish. Make the
most of your trip by using the BURLINGTON’S
splendid service via Denver, the Pike’s Peak Re
gion, the-Royal Gorge, Salt Lake City, Los An
geles, and San Francisco, and then return
through The American Wonderland—the Pacific
Northwest—Portland, Tacoma, Sleattle, Spok
ane, the Cascades, Olympics and the Rockies.
It’s the trip of a life-time and I want to assist
you in planning it; to make your Pullman reser
vations; to provide you withjthrough tickets.

Help Lift This Burden
From Our Community
Too Much Capital Invested That Is Not
Not all of the undersigned business interests subscribed to this system of broadcasting public
opinions do a general credit business with their patrons, but it is a known fact that those who do are
carrying thousands of dollars upon the books from which they get not interest at all. This loss from
invested capital is not only a personal loss, it is a very great loss to the community. It means a loss
on returns to the community that effects every farmer, every laborer and every citizen. The return from
that investment of capital added each year to the community's assets would relieve many fiw«Tw»»nl
Your merchant would be better able to buy and discount his bills and in turn he can sell his goods
much cheaper, the doctor, the baker, the candlestick maker would be able to buy more liberally and pay
with perfect regularity if they had what is due them.
If you have been extended a financial favor by the local business or professional men and cannot -
pay all of it at one time, do your best to liquidate a part of it, at least, and when you get it settled try
and pay cash. It will help the community and help you.
Did you ever stop to think what a burden it would be to the farmers if they had to sell their hogs
and cattle, corn and oats “on time?” The rent, the interest, the taxes and the living expenses would
come due and everything tied up in iperfectly good accounts, but no cash. Hard sledding we'll say. Well
that is what brings the gray hairs to many business men's heads.
Get the cash habit and we will make this one of the best communities in the world.
