This action in in accord with the resolution passed by the business men, favoring a raise in rates in preference to a toll if additional revenue must be had by the company to M>- c.ure them a fair interest on the money invented. The business men and residents were averse to the loll system, not only because the local lines include the rieai-by ones in the regular rate at, the present, but because I lie Hinall charge of five cents would involve a great deal of (lime and patience in wetting parties, making buHinoHH wlower. It is expected that on September 1st the rate for residence 'phones, now 91. HO per month, will be raised to *1.7f), and the business 'phones from 8'J.OO to 8'lfiO per month. CHARTER OAK.

Many a successful man would not have been where he is today, had it not have been for regular deposits in the bank.

MARSH Practical CARRIAGE AND AUTO Ipaintcr TUVINA We've got just the shoe you want for these summer days. So comfortable you won't know you've got your shoes on half the time. The leather—we call it Klk Skin process of tannage— is just as soft and pliable as an old glove, and if you happen to get caught in a rain storm it won't get hard and stiff like the ordinary kind of leather. The Elk soles are just as flexible as that rubber ruler you have on your desk. They will not break nor crack, they are much lighter, they will wear three times as long as the ordinary tanned sole. For indoor wear there isn't a more comfortable shoe made. For recreation— those days when you take a ramble in the wooks or spend a few hours on the tennis court or in the practice field—it's a shoe you will get so attached to that any other shoe will feel uncomfortable and clumsy on your feet. Remember the name: "American Boy" [Ik Skin OutiOj She You have probably seen them advertised in the American l.Joy Magazine and other publications by the makers, the Menzies Shoe Co. of Detroit, Mich. The same company al*o makes a men's outing shoe, same style as the "American Hoy," which they call Menz-"Kase." Imitations of these two shoes are thick around town. The genuine Menx-"Kase" and "American Uoy" Klk Skin outing iluic can be found only in our store. Always find the name on the sole and on tlu- yellow silk label—put there for your protection. Look for them. Broad well Store Covina, California
