Typewriters Should be Like Rubber Bands
."Were it not for its elasticity the common rubber
band yould be of limited use.
Its value lies in the fact that it can be stretched to
meet different requirements.
Likewise the typewriter that will handle nothing
larger than the ordinary letterhead is limited in
its use and is not serving its full purpose.
The Model 10 Smith Premier designed to meet the
greatest number of requirements in any office,
can be furnished with carriages in six different
lengths (all instantly interchangeable on the same
machine) handling paper from one inch to three-
quarters of a yard in width.
Paying a visit to our office doesn't mean you will be
harassed by an aggressive salesman until your order is
placed. You may inspect the machine in our office, if you
wish, and titll feel safe.

Daring 1ti Last Two Months the
Commissioner llaa llrrn Con
splriioa by Ills Doolie
Muttllng of County Commissioner
Peter E. Elsnr-ser has born nccompllshril
by the democratic machine atler a long
and at times seemingly hopeless struggle.
The explanation Is that Oscar J. Plck
ard, his democratic colleague seeking re
election, was In desperate straights,
flepplto his claims that he was doing two
or three men's work and wearing his
finrera to the bone In the service of his
beloved county desptto these claims
there was considerable murmuring about
Oscar. Fcople were beginning to solve
his delivery; there were signs that his
tamo was about played out. This sad
state of affairs largely was the result
of the careless manner In which Mr.
ttlsoyser had discussed Mr. Plckard nnd
o the screws were put on Mr. Elsassrr.
During the Inst two months he has been
conspicuous by his docile silence almost
s conspicuous as he was during his first
months ns comm'ssloner by his free at
tacks upon Commissioner Plckard. Mr.
Elsasser says nothing naughty now. but
some of the things he Mid before heroic
steps to muixle htm were taken boh up
with Increasing frequency to worry Mr.
When the county bonrd organized the
first of the year Mr. Hertford was made
chairman, succeeding the lnte turn-coat,
Fred Pruning. Mr. Plckard explnlnod that
he didn't want lo be chairman but could
have had the place If he had wanted It.
The fact that ns u plain commissioner ho
would have fewer chances to blunder and
pave the way for bin defeat when ho
should Keek re-tlrci Ion had nothing to
do with the dcciulon.
Opr-iiN t poo I'lcLnril.
The Jlrwt regular meet'ns of the now
board had been In proems for about
fifte.-n minutes when Mr. Klia'ser opened

he honorable chairman of roads and
bridges, Mr. Plcknrd was nnnoM and
Jcoily hurt. The hlra of anyone' auft
jer.ilng that he cauld nuke a nilta'tc.
At the next meeting Mr. Ktatifjer was
aimed with figures. He fired a few more
broadsides Into Mr. Plckard. He kept It
up for months and irunths. There were
conferences of the democrats to deviae
v:a and means for pulling the muffle
on "Pete." He wua dciilel the prlvllejo

And you will generally find that they know of more good, intelligent people, those of good sense and dis
cernment in your vicinity who have been cured by Dr. Pierce's World-famed Family Medicines than by

and altogether likely you will easily find people all about you who will be only too glad to say a good word
for them. These old reliable curatives are not exploited or urged upon the afflicted by extravagant and
false promises but have a record of real, genuine cures to sustain them.

credited to any medicine extant. Dy a little Inquiry you will no doubt find some of
these cured and grateful cases In your Immediate neighborhood, for they are to be
met with practically EVERY WHERE. They arc Dr. Pierce's best advertisements.
Seek their advice it you arc a poor despondent overburdened broken down, weak,
or palit'wracked woman, suffering from some derangement or weakness Incident
to your sex.

vised up-to-date edition) gives all particulars which women need to know about their peculiar functions
and how to correct ordinary derangements and weaknesses. Cloth-bound volume of 1000 pages, 31 one
