"I was over in Iowa on a business
mission and did not want to go hack

May, 1912, that I was here finishing
up the transfer of the water works
to the city, and I am struck Im
mensely by the progress that has
been made In the building ot the
"I waa out to the water plant at Flor
ence and noted the Improvements there,
too. The plant la being well kept up, and
mnny things have been accomplished that
we would hav done had we had the
money which tha city now has without
limit The fact thst so many of our old
men have been kept In the responsible
positions Is best proof that our water
company was well managed, and they
are doing good work for the city too.
"W are tn the midst of a suffrage
campaign in New Jersey, where I live,
an the active speakers on both Sides
are the same who took part in the cam
paign In .Nebraska, and keep reciting
their Nebraska experiences.
"Since I waa here last, I have prac-1
tlcally retired from business, severing
my connect. on with the Ladenberg Thai
men company last April. I am U years
old, and my children all grown, and with
my wife I hope to take life a little easier
and drop In on my friends here oftener."

CORSETS FITTED BY THOSE WHO
Perhaps there Is no make of Corset In the world
better suited to most women than the Redfern. You
wouldn't think that a corset had anything on earth
to do with winning a bridge game. And yet here's
what one woman aald recently; "Unless I can forget
my corset and concentrate on my game I cannot
win. That's why I wear a Redtern." Now, women
will know Just what that kind of comfort means.
Bomeimng like a
well fitting shoe,
we suppose. A
ousness as to
whether you hav
feet or shoes. Miss
Coleman, our head
fitter, says: "Wo

What we want you to know about is
Some day we are going to give yon a list ot some
of the Candies he sells. A good doctor who patron
ises the candy counter every Satnrlay, aays: "Cobb
la synonymous with good when connected with
candy." Doctor is right. Yoo never saw more men at
a candy counter than you will find visiting Cobb.
There's a reason, all right. Mr. Man when he buys
candy wants the best. What la Praline T Ask Cobb.
We expect to talk
