• > mmm do HE wardrobes of the past are thrown open, the language of other days, the manners of other times hold sway. The quick, eager, hurrying world of today stands still for one moment to perform a great and solemn cere- mony, and cream-colored horses perform the work now done by flery motor-cars, and stately walking takes the place of rush and bustle. Letters commence "We greet you well," and request in sonorous terras the pres- «nce of great people with ancient names, "fur- nished and appointed as your rank and qual- ity appertaineth," and end with "And so we told you rrost hearty la re well." Claims of rank, of past service, of old rights and privileges pour in.

X I I p I I Advertising HOW TO FIND AND KEEP TRADE Newspaper Advertising Be t and Easiest Way but Must Be Done In an Intelligent Way. "Newspaper advertising ts the best proposition on earth if you work It right," declared Edward P. Trefz of Chicago to the retail grocers of Iowa at their convention In Cedar Falls the other day. "Tell the story In your own way, take plenty of space to do it in and keep at it. A twolnch space away down among the undertakers' ads once a week won't bring you any- thing. "You must not forget that the greatest and most important feature In all advertising and selling Is con- fidence. You have got to have the confidence of your community In your goods and your service. When you advertise a brand of goods which you know is not reliable you are not one whit better than the two story man who robs your house, and you ought to be sent to the penitentiary Along with him.

And it was a jolly, good natured and orderly crowd. In May, a little fight was pulled off. This time there was nothing to mar the pleasure of the day except the delay caused by the little squabble at the ball game late in the afternoon. One of the best—in fact we feel free to say that it was the very best feature of the day, was the address on conservation of the soil and other natural resources bv Col.
