So, the other day. when a farmer came along with a big brindle dog under his wagon and wanted to sell him for fire dollars, Bipley criticised the canine, inquired as to his menu, and naid it was trade. Be tied tee doar up to the woodshed, fed him bountifully, and he went into the country after a load of potatoes with a light heart, be lieving that no human being could come fooling around his bouse and lire long.

HOW TO ADVERTISE. The Newspaper the Most Successful The Newspaper the Most Successful Method.
