for August. 25, 2Ci and 27. Owing
to the condition of-the courts in
this city it lias been transferred
to Weeping1 Water. This tourna
ment last year was a huge suc

the tennis players of Platfs

nobly last, year when called upon
to help support, the tournament.

FINE NEW BURG CUR
C. L. Snangler is the proud
possessor of a line - new nl..
mode! Jbirg automobile that .he
has just secured through James
W. Holmes oT Murray, Ihe JJurg
agent in Ihis county. The new
machine is the last word in auto
mobiles, and is a ir horse power,
.six-cylinder machine, equipped
with electric lights and all Ihe
modern conveniences that go to
iake up an up-to-date machine,
and Mr. Spangler can well feel
proud of his handsome new car.
It Is Going to Rain.
We don't know when, hut wi
know that we have got a lot ot
flue comb honey to sell a llrst
class article, clean and fresh,
right, from the clover fields. We
sell a good bit of our honey right
nf home, because we don't have
time to 'deliver it. A nice, neat
sign-hoard placed in our yard,
with nice big red lelters painted
on it, "Honey for Sale," saves us
a whole lot or talking. It's a
honey-seller. It stops more auto
mobiles than all the police in
town with the sheriffs thrown in.
Those big fellows in Omaha and
other places slop their big "auto
mobills" at "our foot-bridge and
call for our honey. They usually
want .T boxes for r0c or for a
dollar. Most eerybody knows
where it is. out on Chicago ave
nue, and. Ihe only honey-selling
place in town outside of the
stores. Now, dear reader, ifyou
want to buy something that, will
make you a whole lot "sweeter,"
just try a cake, of honey. 'Phone
No. 490 will give you more in
formation if'ycu desire it.
