The firm Is among the largest whole­ sale and retail flour, feed and hay dealers in the Northwest, and that it is a distinctly home institution is evidenced by the money brought into Duluth annually, and by the large force of people which is employed here.

Workingmen are in duty bound to support a home institution, and it goes without saying that this concern ranks among the foremost houses that are entitled to home patronage. JOURNEYMEN PAINTERS RECEIVE AN ADVANCE Employers Gladly Recognize the Justice of Union Men's Contention. As an evidence of the harmonious feeling that exists between employers and employes in Duluth, we take much pleasure in stating that from and after April 1, 1907, journey men painters have had their wages advanced to 44% cents per hour, as against 37% cents' in 1906. This conclusion was the hap­ py result of fair-minded negotiations between the employers and union representatives. representatives. Strange that Minnea­ polis employers do not pattern after the example of thair more enlightened Duluth brethern. IF YOU STOP YOU DIE. A stationary human being one who never acts nor thinks nor talks is dead. Action is not only the law, but the measure of life. Just in proportion to your action or want of action: do you show yourself alive or dead. So, too, are your acts the measure of your wisdom, and also of your integrity and your morality. In order that we may live, we want to be up and doing, and in that we may be worthy of living we want to be exceedingly careful of our actions. DON'T BE A FOOL ALL THE TIME. It is a pretty good plan to follownot follownot to be a fool all the time. All of us are fools a part of the time, and this is excusable. Some of us are fools all the time, which is in excusable One man is a fool along one line, and' another man along another line this can in a' measure be tolerated,' but when a smart man Is a fool along, all the lines it is past endurance.' A kiss is an insipid and tasteless^ morsel, which becomes delicious tti/Skf delectable in proportion as it is flavor*'? ed with love. 3
