prices reasonable. Opposite tbe Arlington
is behind the age
if he "doesn't keep SAPOLIO in stock. No city store is
without it. The great grocers of the country handle no
other scouring soap because the best housekeepers will
not use cheap imitations which are liable to do damage
far greater than the little saving in cost. If your store
keeper does not keep SAPOLIO tell him to wake up. If
he offers you something else when you ask for SAPOLIO
tell him to be wise and deal in genuine goods.
It pays to have the best.

Arran Cements have
been made for three liar-
Burlington vest excursions to points
, in .Nebraska , Kansas.
Colorado , Wyoming and
South Dakota at a rate
of 1 % rate round trip.
This rate will be made
from points as far east as
Chicago in accordance with our present ad-
viws , and it Is expected that the co-operation
of lines east of that point will be secured
later. Tickets will be sold on August 23th ,
September 15th and 29th , good to return
within GO days from date of sale. Stop overs
will be allowed at pleasure on the gomjr trio
at points \vp.st of the Missouri river. This
company will advertise extensively In con
nection with these excursions the advantages
and agricultural capabilities of the states
traversed bv its lines. Such advertising must
necessarily be general in its character , it Is
theiefore suggested that the different com
munities set on foot some movement to ad
vertise their special attractions and thus sup
plement the advertising done by the railways
and bring directly to the homeseeker the in
ducements they have to oiFer. It is expected
that such communities will raise funds for
the preparation of advertising matter and
will select well qualified men to distribute
such matter and personally advertise their
section among the fanners in the east. Such
men should spend several weeks in a thor
ough canvas to give reasonable hope of sufli-
cient results to justify the expense of send
ing them. This company proposes furnish
ing transportation as far east as Chicago ,
1'eoria and St. Louis to a well selected list
of men each representing his particular sec
tion supplied with good advei Using matter
in sufficient quantity and who may have
special qualifications for the work. This of
fice is ready to furnish such parties general
advertising matter in regard to harvest ex
cursions , lands , etc. , for distribution , with
such special matter as may be supplied by
the community. J. FKANCIS ,
