There arc pillows wet by sobs; there
are gentle sensitive natures seared and
-warped; there are old time friends
separated Hnd walking their lonely
ways with hope dead and memory but
a pang; there are cruel misunderstand
logs that make life bare, these are but
lew of the sorrows thai come from the
crimes of the tongue.
Not every boy can be a rich man or
great man, but every boy can be a
gentleman. A boy with gentlemanly
Manners, who Is trusty And honest
and dots his very best every day, will
gain the attention and confidence of

Next Tuesday is city election day.
There arc two nou-partisan tickets in
the field. The Chief gives Its unquali
fied support to the business men's
ticket for two reasons. First the pres
ent administration has made good.
The present officials were selected last
year by the business men of the city
to give us a business administration
and they have done all that could
possibly be expected of them to do.
They have saved the plant nt the power
house. All that expensive machinery
that bad cost the tax-payers of this
city thousands of dollars was in a good
way of soon becoming good only for
the scrap heap. The boilers were de
fective, the steam pipes leaked at near
ly every turn, thero was waste in every
operation and the entire plant hud a
run down appearance.
The plant in, now in first-class condi
tion The boilers have been re-set and
about n ton of coal saved per day; the
steam pipes have been re-cut and re
Utted, the two water pumps repaired
and they are now practically us good
us new. The plant looks as tho it
were owned by n prosperous concern.
Everything about the power house now
hus tho appearance of thrift und
economy ami tuivone can see that con
ditions ure better than anytime siuce
Charlie Whlttukcr left. The plaut 1
This administration abolished the
ten per cent reduction on bills for
light and water and thus saved a snug
sum for the city. The city is now paid
for what it furnishes to consumers.
By relieving the Commissioner of the
duties of milking out statements and
collecting the bills he is now able to
devote his entire time for the up-kcep
of the light and water system this is
a big mlvuuce over former methods.
This administration succeeded in
connecting the Maurer sprites with
our city water supply at n time when
those springs seemed to be lost. This
result was accomplished without the
expenditure of one dollar of city funds.
Monthly statements of the Uuuucial
condition of the city have been regu
larly published and by keeping these
by themselves any eity could tell Just
what was being doue with the tuouey.
This ailmiuistmtiou has not indulged
iu the luxury of quarrels and dead
locks. Itusiuess has becu transuded
iu a busiuess like manner, euch mem
ber of the council has spoken his opin
ion freely und the result lias beeu
beneficial to the city.
This administration has paid oil'
about four thousand dollars of previous
indebtedness ami have paid their own
-bills fioui time to time so that we are
now practically out of debt. There
may be u hundred 'dollars but the
amount is inconsiderate. We liuve
dreumed for years of the time when
the city would be out of debt und now
that our dreams uie to be a reality we
should endoise the acts of the busiuess
council by retaining them in power.
The second. reusou why we favor the
business men's ticket is because in tills
election there is absolutely no issue
between the two tickets.

WHAT'S THE PRICE OF A GOOD
SUIT OF CLOTHES ?
WENTY-FIVE dollars. You can buv our clothes
for less than that $20, $18, $15; you can pay more
than that we have very fine clothes at $30, $35, $30.
But $25 is a good average price; most men who appreciate
good quality and style in clothes, gdod tailoring and fit,
are willing to pay as much as $25.
Hart Schaffner & Marx
suits at $25 will surprise you. You'll get all-woll fabrics; trimmings, linings and other materials
of a high grade; tailoring of a very high order the things that make a suit wear well, 'and
shapley. You'll get the value of best style standards and orginality of design; you'll get clothes
that fit you wellt
And you'll gain from $10. to $20, either in greater value at the price; or lower price
for similar value.
; Better see how true this is; $25 is a price you can afford, and you'll say so
when you see the clothes. Better come and look at the new spring styles
Bring that old picture aud get 'it
enlarged. Surprising results. We
can please you, come in and see.
