There are two sides to it and it re

State Senator William Weesner. of
his distiict, felt that when a saloon
lebauched a man and the good wife
intended bi Inning suit tor damages,
.she should tlr-t notify the saloon keep
er in the uialttr, and so he voted for
that Iniquitous measure. He ought go
further. He ought demand that a bill
be brought up before the legislature
demanding that when an unfortunate
debauched specimen of womanhood in
tends to prosecute herdebaucher, that
sho shall flist serve a written notice to
the miseiaiit and if he shall commit tie
act again, then he must be liable to

statesman, in justice to the loglo he
has demonstrated with his vote, ought
favor a measure, that when Ills son or
any other man's sou frequents u saloon
theie to start perhaps upon it career of
detmuohment, the saloon keeper hhall
tlrst servo the ptreutu with a notice
that the boy is desirous of so making
entry, before he shall be permitted to
make the start, by tho said saloon
keeper Hut Wen-tier won't do this.
He is a zealous servant of the cause of
fie liquor interests whether he iu
toads to be. or not, and eveiy vote he
has cast in the sta'e senate i his winter

Home Grown Seed Corn Best
Kvn tbo it. is said that like pro
duces liko, the pretty ears of seed corn
from tlio distant seed house may not,
and usually do not, produce com as

c unity agricultural agents, and the
Nebraska Kxpoilincnt Station show
an incivaso of from l 5 to in bushels

the native seed yields about a fourth

A mistake that may be corrected the next day is
quickly forgotten. But a mistake that must stay with
one for several months will not be forgotten for several
more months.
When you choose your Spring
coat or suit, why not select one

least a whole season.
Every woman knows that con
servative styles are the most
lasting. You know how quick

feel if you are still wearing
Wooltex garments all contain
the best expression of the sea
son's style tendencies, but they
are refined and tempered to
meet the practical ideas of the
best dressed American women.
Wooltex tailored garments give
longer and better service than
ordinary garments for they are
made from pure silk and pure
wool materials, by skillful, pains
taking tailors.
All mate ials are carefully
shrunk before cutting. Seams
are tailor-basted before stitch
ing. Special attention is given
collars, lapels and edges the
places where ordinary garments
show their lack of careful work
manship. Every Wooltex garment is
carefully inspected four times
before it leaves the workrooms.
Such materials and tailoring
combined with skillful design
ing, make alternations unneces
sary in nearly all Wooltex garments.
These are the ideal garments for you- correct in style
faultless in tailoring; serviceable; moderate in price
