The Long Winter1
May be made bright and cheerful by illuminating
the home with either Gas or Electricity. - And the
disposition of the housewife may be sweetened
by relieving her of the drudgery of filling "smelly"
kerosene lamps and cleaning smoky chimneys.
Nothing is so well calculated to make home happy
as bright lights and cheerful dispositions. We
will furnish the illumination-and the cheerful dis
positions will follow as a natural result.
If It's a Question of Cost
Let. us prove to you as we can that it is
cheaper, more convenient and far better to illu
minate with gas or electricity than it is to illumin
ate with kerosene amps. Counting cost of
kerosene and chimneys, to say nothing of the
drudgery connected therewith it costs no. more
to use gas or electricity. And as for the results
dollar for dollar you get immensely more and
better light always ready, no cleaning, no break
ageby using our illuminants. ,
Equipping a Modern Kitchen
Mr. Mechanic, you insist upon having the
best and most up-to-date tools. Why deny your
good wife the same conveniences for her trade.
If you think hocsewifery is not a trade, just try
it. Equip the kitchen with labor saving devices
first a gas range, then electric irons, toasters,
etc Come in and let us show you a f ew things.

A Swanton Farmer Who Knows a Lot
That is Not So.
"Why, If the prosperity of the coun
try depends on the prosperity of the
farmer, are the laboring men of the
city considered so much more impor
tant than the laborers on the farms.
For instance they form unions, cause
strikes, destroy property with impuni
ty, and cause hardship to the covmtry
at large by keeping those from work
ing that are willing.to work? I am
a farmer. J. C. Schmucker, Swanton,
The above is a portion of a "why"
sent to the Evening News and pub
lished last Wednesday evening.
'Why is an ignormaus?"
Just as soon as we can secure an
answer to our question we will be
able to explain the "why" of Farmer
It was Josh Billings who said, "It's
better not tu kno so mutch than tu
kno so mutch that aint so." The
trouble with Farmer Schmucker is
that he knows too much that isn't so
and not enough that Is so. When he
says that unions cause strikes he ex
poses his ignorance; when he de
clares that they destroy property with
impunity he betrays his lack of ver
aclty, and when he says they cause
hardships by preventing those from
working that are willing to work he
stamps himself as a wilful preverter
of the truth or a man too Infernally
narrowminded or too awfully lazy to
study and ascertain the truth.
We dearly wish Farmer Schmucker
would inform us how long $9.50 pork
and $8.50 beef and dollar wheat and 60
cent corn would be the market quota
tions if the unions were to be smashe
all at once and the wage scale and
working hours left to the employers.
If he doesn't know that the high
prices now secured by himself and
his fellow farmers are due in large
measure in largest measure to the
fact that through organization ' the
workingmen of this country have so
raised wages as to permit them to buy
more and more of life's necessaries,
together with some of the luxuries, It
is high time he inform himself. If
all the union men Farmer Schmucker
insults and lies about were to quit
working tomorrow, Farmer Schmucker
would have to stand by and watch the
prosperity of the farmers tumble to
If Farmer Schmucker can read
and we presume he can, since it ap
pears he' can write we would advise
him to forget the untruths he has
stored in his mind and busy himself
with storing up some real information
concerning trades unions. v Farmer
Schmucker should "scmuck up."
