DO NOT GRUMBLE.
Quiet endeavor is what makes it;
Save your breath for breathing hard
You can do some real, hard labor
If you do not kick too hard.
And vour friends will like you better
And will haln you "turn the wheel"
If you'll "buck in" and get busy
Without a murmur or a squeal.

on. If you are only inclined to
"think neutrally" and if you lack
the force to be either positively
destructive or poslitvely construct
ive, you can take the attitude of
mediocrity; you can be a dror.e In
the hive; you can be simply ob
structive; you can get in the way
of progress and stay there, like a
balky mule on a railroad track; you
can play the role of the dog In the
manger unable to eat the hay but
yelping at those that could eat It.
The third alternative is to be
eontructive, and this is the privilege
of every individual, low or high,
poor or rich. You can take the
constructive attitude if you so de
cide. You can be a builder, a pro
ducer, a doer. And it Is this type

HIS FATAL ERROR.
"Poor old feller " sympathetical
ly said the landlord of the Petunia
Tavern, as a funeral procession
trailed by. "Ho was our last ling
ering horse doctor. For years he
went around hauling open horses'
mouths and wagging his head as if
he had discovered something abso
lutely unheard of In the annals of
horse history. Probably he didn't
really know much about horses,
but he loved to associate with them.
After he had outlived his usefulness
and almost outlived horses he would
go poking, around among the Ford
cars and mattering. And day be
fore yesterday, when he found one
standing alone and unhitched, he
went In front of it and tried to open
its mouth, or something; anyhow,
it gave a snort and ran over him,
and fetched his checkered career to
an end. Well, Doc was a pretty
good sort of a feller, and ho didn't
owe me but $8 that I remember of."

At last farmers are able to secure the per
fected Light and Power. This plant is the
Owen. Until the Owen came, farmers had
to be content with makeshift units. Crude,
too small, expensive to operate
Still many bought these temporary units.
They could no lender content themselves
with kerosene lamps and the lack of electric
power. Many hesitated, waiting for just
such a plant as the Owen.
Now those who have
already bought units are
replacing them with this
final-type plant. Each
day we are receiving or
ders from farmers who
have been waiting.
The Owen's success
has been instant. It is
a new conception. It
offers you betterments such as have never
been offered by any other plant.
The Owen starts and stops itself. It is
completely automatic. No running down
to the cellar to turn it on or off. When the
batteries are partially discharged, the engine
starts automatically. When they are fully
charged, it stops automatically. When you
require more current than the batteries
should care for, the engine starts automatic- i
ally. Even the lubrication is automatic.
Aside from the matchless convenience this
automatic control offers, it also multiplies
the life of the batteries overcoming costly
replacements formerly necessary.
As a result the Owen costs you but one
fifth as much to operate as other units. It
offers you illumination and power at less per
candle-power than kerosene lamps.
The Owen has a "si
lent valve" engine which ;
cannot leak. Compres- 1
sion remains perfect.
Grinding of valves and
scraping of carbon are
It will light as high as
100 lamps without flick
ering, it nas more ca
pacity for running a water system, churns,
cream separators, washing machines, milk
ing machines, electric fans, irons and
Dozens of such reasons as this should urge
you to know the Owen before you decide.
Come in and let us explain the many Owen
features to you. A post-card or a telephone
call will bring us to call on ycAj.
