was able to take more substantial
food. Her heart action is better than
at any time since she was taken

from bom the blood uas taken, was
a little weak and nervous for a few
days afterwards. He Is said to be as
well and as strong now as ever, but

Charles N. Sullivan,' who Is visit
ing for a few days with his parents
In this city, is getting along all right
no far as be Is concerned and is
little .the, worse for his experience.
He Is pale from the loss of so much
tl'ood, but aside from this, feels fine
and as soon as he recovers from the
weakening effects of the operation,
he will be able to return to his work

the operation which are quite lnter

I must say that I have striven to
be honest and upright, in my deal
ings with the people that entered
my store for the past three and one
half "years that I have betn in busi

in the future.
I do appreciate the kindness of all
those who have dealt with me, and
would gladly greet as many more as

I have an up-to-date line of Fur

know how much blood was taken
from him until . sometime later.
Aside from being weak at the loss of
blood, he noticed no Immediate ill
effects. He will be here several days
before returning to Omaha.
Mrs. Towle's many, friends here
will be more than pleased to learn
of her recovery and. return to nor
mal health once more, and have
every assurance that It will be per
manent. Dr, Henry is the name of
the surgeon who performed the
operation which is regarded as a re
markable one In medical circles. He

making a profit on what he sells.
I must say that I have not adver

my cash customers. Only once or
twice did I advertise a special dis
count sale. -
My jcilscounts to the cash custom
era are 5 and 10 per cent, according
to the line they. buy, which I have
had In force since I am In business
here, and I must say that if 1 could
do an entirely cash business that 1
could cut my percentage some lower,
so that I could give still , bettei
prices than I am now giving. - -
