home of his aunt, Mrs. Guy McMaken

the decorations of a Hallowe'en part
and had started home on his pony

10th street onto the pavement at
Washington avenue and had passed
the intersection and was traveling
wtst when the accident occurred. He
was talking with some children who
were playing near the crossing and
failed to ; ee the approaching truck
and the driver of the truck stated
that he did n.ot tee the lad until al
most on him and too late to avoid
the collision. The truck struck the
hoy and pony, knocking the pony

"Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has
been used by myself and husband for
a number of vears for coughs and

at once. I have recommended this

"Aw, they don't make cigarettes like they used
to one's as good as another now-a-days."
All right, we'll give that smoker any kind of odels he
wants on Spur and win hands down.
Ferhaps you arc looking for that good old-time to
bacco taste. Spurs are chock full of it. Couldn't help

Light up a Spur take a long puff and quicker than
you can say "Jack Robinson" you will jump for a seat
on the Spur band wagon.
Spurs have another surprise for you they're
crimped, not pasted. No other cigarette is rolled with
the crimped seam, and you benefit by easier drawing,
longer burning, better taste.
And here's extra measure three-fold package of
rich brown and silver to keep Spurs fresh and fragrant.
