Great Winter Wind-Op Sale 'beginning January 17—Closing January 31 , « XHE name of our sale is in itself explanatory. While the winter is only half gone, the sale of heavy goods is nearing the "wind-up." We are not going to carry over any winter goods if cost and a little below will move them. Only a few weeks until spring and summer goods will be coming in and we must have room to store them and money to pay for them. To this end we have inaugurated the "Wind-Up."

E ■'.* f I CHRONIC MISQUOTATIONS. OUR SUN IS NOT VERY HOT. P. GUAY'S QUEER PLANT. i i m i ' *$&<VVV; i. BK{ 'He That Runs May Rssd" Was Twist- sd by Cewpsr and Tsnnysan. Some of the most frequently used quotations are not quotations at all, but in many cases convey the op- posite meaning of the original wording. William Cowper, for instance, thought he was quoting from the Bible when he spoke of an inscrip- tion being so devised that "he who runs may read," signifying that it was easily read by a man in haste. If Cowper had looked in his Bible he would have found in the book of Habakkuk that the passage he tried to quote is, "Write the vision and make it plain that he may run that readeth it." The vision was a warning, and the reader was to flee from danger, but the Cowper version has surviv- ed the original and practically put it out of use. A popular chronic misquotation is that of the passage in "Hudi- bras" which says, "He that com- plies against his will is of the same o...

J Misrepresentation Is Expensive By HOLLAND. Deception or attempted deception is wrong. It is also foolish. Attempted deception, deception that does not deceive, is still more fool- ish. Successful business men are not foolish. They do not attempt deception. Aside from its being wrong, they know that it is foolish, that it is expensive, that it will not pgy. That is the reason that ad- vertising is truthful, that it is dependable, that you and other readers of this paper have confidence in it That is the reason that advertis- ing pays. Even Ananias never paid money for newspaper space in which to circulate his as- saults on truth. He was a deal of a liar, if his reputa- tion is deserved, but he wrote no false advertisements. If that ancient purveyor of ca- nards has a modern successor the present day exponent of prevarication Is not an ad- vertiser. Goods that are advertised persistently .must have merit. Advertising that is continu- ous must be truthful. You can protect yourself by...
