HE Pilot Acetelyne Gas Machine is entirely aut-
matic in operation and requires no attention what
ever. Every light is started with an electric spark,
which does away with the use of matches, and also
makes it impossible to open a gas jet without the gas being
ignited at the tip.
This machine makes gas just as it is needed and posi
tively no more. This it m alone is a great saving over other
machines that have a different style of mixing, which leaves
a quantity of gas in the resivoir, which loses its burning qual
ities the longer it stands.
Gas from this machine can be run to any of our out
buildings. This is absolutely the only machine that is giving
perfect satisfaction at all times and under all conditions with
out any extra expense after installation. This machine can
be seen any time at our store.

The next local event of iniport-
inee, aside from the usual holi-
lay festivities, is the band con-
ert, and this is something that
none of our people should lose
sight of. The boys are practicing
twice a week regularly for,, lhe
event, nmf it is an occasion that is
worthy of the support of every
citizen. We should, and no doubt
lo, all of us feel a great pride in
our band and a desire also to aid
them in every possible way. These
concerts, lhe first one of which
will be given on Thursday night,
December L'H, al the. Parmele
theater, are given for the sole
purpose of buying uniforms for
o boys, and rather than solicit
amounts from individual business
men, they have concluded to give
series of concerts during the
winter, in which everyone can add
their little mite by purchasing
tickets and attending these con
certs, every one of which will
be more than worth the admission
price. Remember,' the first, con
cert takes place Thursday night,
December 28.
In going up High school hill the
other day with a little tot going
to school, she asked me the ques
tion: "Do you think there is a
Santa Clans?" I looked at the
little girl a moment, and then
wanted to know who told her there
was no Santa Claus, and she re
plied that one of the big girls told
her going home from school one
day. So many children in this
day and age have gotten this idea
into their heads. Hut there is a
Sanla Clans. He exists ns cer
tainly as love and generosity and
devotion exist, and you know they
I abound and give to your life its
highest beauty and joy. Alas
How dreary would be tho world i
there were no Sanla Claus? It
would be as dreary as. if there
were no little, girls and boys.
There would be no child-like faith
then, no poetry, no romance to
make tolerable this existence. We
should have no enjoyment, except
in sense and sight. The eternal
light with which childhood fills
the world would be extinguished.
No, don't tell the children there is
no Santa Claus.

As to whether there is any
onger a "Hryan wing" to the
liquor question, wo aro not at all
sure. As wo understand it, Mr.
Hryan now takes precisely the
position that was taken by the
Clrnnd Island convention, and be
lieves that this annoying problem
should bo settled under the in
itiative and referendum, and that
meant imo it has no placo in party
politics. Mr. Hryan, therefore, in
stead of being a "wing" of his
own, has fallen in lino with his
party on this issue.
As to John Morehead not being
a "progressive," he was accounted
a mighty good democrat by Mr.
Hryan for twenty years, until the
liquor quarrel came up. His
home in Falls City was often
