JANUARY FIRST sees the beginning of a now; buv r.o' s pollcv
with this store. A change from a credit system to a ::trict!y cash
basis. We realize that at first such a change will inconvenience
some as well as ourselves. We will no doubt be misunderstood, and
misquoted but merchandising of today is not the merchandising
of a few years ago. Since the war began prices in all lines have, as
you know, been steadily on the increase, and many times we have
r,old goods for a less price than we could go on the market and re
place them. Don't misunderstand us! We are not grouching about
this kind of loss. What we want to do is to point out to you the
.saving in dollars you can make in paying cash for your merchandise.
In selling for cash we will be able to eliminate considerable
expense in the way of bookkeeping, loss of bad accounts and general
overhead costs. - We shall be able to do business on a smaller margin
of expense, and that means more money for actual buying power
What is saved by buying in larger quantities and at times
when the market is particularly favorable, we will pass on to you
in lower prices.
We want to serve you In the future as in the past, and to meet
your patronage with honest merchandise on a business basis We
want to be a part of this community, working always for its good
as well as our own. If there is anything you do not fully under
stand about our new method, come in and talk it over. We will be
be very glad to explain in detail the advantage and saving to you
in our new plan. . .. ,

The pastors of the' two churches.
I Christian and United Presbyterian of
Murray have agreed to hold union
services each Sabbath evening for
one or two months, and perhaps
through the winter. In this way
there will be quite a saving of fuel,
as only one church will have to be
heated each Sabbath evening, and al
so the speaker of each evening will
have, or should have, a larger aud
ience. The first of the union ser
vices will be held in the Christian
Church next Sabbath eveniner. and it
should be remembered that in
community December Is the "E very
boy at Church Month", and no one
should fall to attend at least one
service each of the three remaining
Sabbaths of the month.
Because of the severity of the
weather both the Murray ehurehes
abandoned all services last Sabbath,

THE NATION'S NEED.
In these days of an unprecedent
ed world-drama we need' a healthy
nation. Let sickness and disease
prevail in any nation, and it will
be lost. Health is the fundamental
basis of life, and the main-stay of
health is the stomach. To prevent
sickness you must keep the stomach
clean. Triners American Elixir of
Bitter Wine is the best remedy for
this purpose. It cleans the intes
tines and invigorates them. All your
stomach troubles, like constipation,
indigestion, headaches, nervousness,
insomnia, general debility, etc., will
disappear. At drug stores. Price
$1.10. The tortures of rheumatism.
neuralgia, lumbago etc., embitter
the pleasure of life. But you can
avoid them by using Triner's Lini

sprains, strains, swellings, tired
muscles and feet. Price 35 and Go
