'Seeking to alleviate this condition nS'this section, at least, and quick to | future. of such a market, the Sutton Livestock Commission Auction Sales was established here in 1938. Although they started in a small and inauspicious manner, and had a total of ?371 in sales at their first auction today this firm is one of the largest and most firmly established of such sales in the state. Today, for example, the business is housed in a modem sales pavilion, a large sales ring and ample seating facilities for several hundred buyers and spectators. Selling about $10,000 worth weekly or half a million dollars worth of livestock, machinery and other miscellaneous items each year, this firm has sales every Tuesday beginning at 10 a. m. and continuing through the day. In this connection, it might be noted that a large portion of all checks given in payment for items sold through these sales are cashed in local stores where-the owner shopped for merchandise which, in other circumstances, he might have purchased in his own community. The Sutton Livestock Commission Co. takes this opportunity to express appreciation for your past business and to invite your continued patronage in the Adv.

Adams, County Agent. Last year a Breeder's school conducted was so well received that this year emphasis will be placed on using quality feeds that furnish the most for the cost and contribute the greatest amount of meat and milk that is so needed in the all out program of the United States Department of Agriculture's War Program. The discussion to be emphasized will be (a) the need for more pasture, hay and silage as evidenced by the shortage in feed in most sections this winter and the usual need for more pasture during the summer and fall: (b) increased quality in hay by improved methods in curing and storing; (c) utilizing pasture and forage with those types of animals which will give economic production of meat and milk. All livestock producers arc invited. Fnrm Lonn Meeting A Farm Loan Meeting was held Monday morning at 10:00 at the courthouse.

Gulf Products arc Wholesaled and Distributed In Hope nnd Vicinity by M. S. Bates, Local Gulf Distributor. In 1869 the first commercial well producing crude oil was drilled in Titusvillc, Perm. However, present day oil men cnn remember 1901 as another important date for two reasons: 1. The Spindle Top Well—the industry's most historic well—came in and introduced petroleum production on a tremendous scale. 2. The Gulf Refining Company was founded. In 1902 Gulf laid 13 miles of pipeline. In 1903 this was extended to 52 miles nnd the first Gulf refinery- destined to become the world's largest -was established at Port Arthur, Texas. With every year afterwards, Gulf grew and added new services. On December 9, 1913, for example, Gulf vard in Pittsburgh. Years Inter or in the early 20's Gulf introduced one of the first canned oils—Gulfpride was one of the first oils marketed in sealed cans for customer protection and has never been marketed otherwise. Gulf was also one of the first oil companies to offer retail credit cards which are good anywhere. Today, the nrganixnlinn itself has 12,000 miles nf pipelines, eight huge refineries, hundreds of consignees, jobbers and distributors and 50,000 service stiitinns which serve 40 states of the union from Maine to Texas. To 25,000,000 motorists in those 40 states—representing 80 per cent of the Million's car owners—the orange disc, the Gulf emblem has become the symbol of service and quality products. Mr. Bates nets as commission agent for,Gulf Products in this area. He owns his own equipment, employs his own personnel and is justly regarded as a local business num. He takes this opportunity to express appreciation for your past business nnd to invite your patronage in the future. Adv.

Price subject to change without notice. 1UU This is Store B —it sells tires This is newspaper advertising Here Store A and Store B tell the public that they have tires for sale and where their stores are located. But now there is a shortage of rubber, due to the war. Store A and Store B haven't enough tires to sell. Store B stops advertising. Store A teeps right on advertising —keeps its name before the public —and tells its customers how to get the most wear out of their tires. What happens? The public forgets about Store B. The public remembers about Store A, appreciates that Store A is interested in their getting the most out of their tires, not in just selling tires. When the rubber shortage is over, people are in the habit of thinking about getting tires from Store A ... and they are out of the habit of thinking about Store B. This isn't just theory. During World War I some Store B's stopped advertising. By the time they started advertising again, the Store A's, which had kept on advertising, were 'way ahead of them with customers that were friendly and grateful. The Store B's kept on dropping behind. It's the same today. There is a shortage of some goods. But you'll notice that the wise owners of the Store A's still advertise their services to you, still keep their names where you can see them, in the newspaper ads. AND THAT'S ONE VERY GOOD REASON WHY YOU WON'T FIND THEIR STORES ADVERTISING THEIR PLACES FOR RENT WHEN THE WAR IS OVER! * * * When business i3 better in this town everybody benefits. When everybody in the town knows what's going on all over the world, each man can tell better how to vote, what to buy and how to protect himself. Read these ads each week. Tell your friends to read them. They tell you what an important part your newspaper has in helping, you, to know what's going on, so you can decide what you personally are going to do about it all. The publisher of this paper wants to serve the community the best he possibly can. If you have any suggestions or questions or criticisms don't hesitate to write him a letter. It will receive per sonal attention. HOPE STAR Alex. H.
