How Much Do I Pay?
That question may be one which you are tr) ing to
solve. Maybe you haven't figured what it takes in a year's
buying to feed you and your family. If you will figure
you will find you pay a few hundred dollars, and pay no
attention to how much you pay when you say charge it.
Just a few items below show what a saving can be made
in a cash way:

STATE FAIR WILL HAVE BIG
Believing that progres-s is largely
made by emulation, says a bulletin
of the Nebraska State Board of Ag
riculture, the finest exhibit of farm
products is being planned that has
ever been shown on the Fair Grounds
at Lincoln. A campaign is being
conducted to interest farmers in ex
hibiting and the result should be an
unexcelled showing of food products.
Nebraska has the reputation of
having one of the best state fairs in
the country and one of her best ex
hibits has always been the farm pro
ducts. With added emphasis being1
placed on this exhibit this year food
production should receive a stimulus
of no mean value.

favor on the market.
