To preserve your house — your property — your dollars, you might say—you
must use paint. To do so economically the paint you use MUST have lasting qualities.
Remember, poor paint costs more than good paint, for the work baa to be done
oftener. Start right by getting
Horse Shoe Paint
and you can make up your mind it’s on to stay. The reason for this is plain. Horse
Shoe Paint is wholly composed of the strongest and best materials known in the
science of paint making — it contains no cheapening or adulterating materials what
ever. It s made of strictly Pure Zinc and White Lead for p.gmcnts. Add to this
Pure Linseed Oil—crushed by the manufacturers themselves to insure its purity — then
the necessary drier and coloring matter and you’ve got the best paint that money,
brai:.s and material can produce.
Horse Shoe Paint has stood the test for 20 long years—it's a proven paint— and
is sold in almost every town and city in the United States. Should not that fact
alone convince you that Horse Shoe Paint gives satisfaction beyond question ?
Hors* Shoe Paint does ell we claim—we guarantee it to be pure and to wear.
Hors* Shoe Paint is absolutely pure; you buy it subject to chemical analysis and
its paint that lasts.
Pair*4 your house with H~»rse Shoe Paint this season by all means.

Peter Rowe has in his possesion a
minature copy oi the Ilinggold Coun
ty Record, published at Mt. Ayr,
Iowa, in 1881. twenty-sevtn years ago,
which is a veritable curiosity, and
which has been in possession of his
wife all these years, since she was a
girl in her old Iowa home. What
makes it of peculiar interest at this
time is the fact that the writer here
of was editor of the Record at that
time, and it brings a rush of
memories of the time when he was
just sprouting into editorial work.
A copy of tiie paper spoken of may be
seen at the Northwestern office, but
unless one has the best of eyes lie
will have difficulty in deciphering
the exceedingly small print, which
needs microscopic aid in doing so, if
the eye has lost its pristine glory.
Strive For Better Things
Whatever view we take of life,
whatever the circumstances with
which fate has surrounded us. what
ever our creed or nationality, each of
us w ithin himself believe that he was
born for letter things, that more of
the comforts of life should be his
than lie is now enjoying-. This feel
ing of unsatisfaction with one's lot in
life is a righteous one. for it is
ambition, that wonderful incentive
for action which is responsible for the
remarkable progress the world has
made and is making in every field of
research and endeavor. Each of us
desire success and advancement in
his undertakings and while our views
of what constitutes success may vary. I
we all court the attainment of our
goal with the same zeal, sacrifice and
fortitude. The jewelry business, as a
business, can hardly be said to be j
dealing in necessities, and to the ex
tent we feel that our business is quite
largely one of adornmentation. and
therefore it is our duty to study this i
business from this standpoint. It is
our aim to place before the public'
the highest grade of tine Watches,
tine Diamonds, rich Jewelry, elegant
designs in Cut Class, the most
elaborate styles in sterling silver that
is manufactured today, and while we
do ail this it is also onr aim to prio
these goods to compete with anyone
on the same quality and with honest i
business methods, trying to please
you and with the full assurance that
it is no trouble to show you. We
solicit your patronage.
