MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THE U N D Y I N G LINCOLN SORE TH ROATS ser/ot/snowt A sore spot no larger than a quarter can spread to the whole throat overnight. Gargle the very moment you feel the least soreness. Physicians recommend Bayer Aspirin for this, purpose. It allays all inflammation immediately. It reduces the infection. Just crush" three tablets in % tumblerful of water, and gargle well. It's a wise plan to take Bayer Aspirin after exposure to Lad weather or whenever a cold threatens. If you ever have neuralgia, neuritis, or rheumatism, you should never he without this quick antidote for all such aches and pains. Genuine Bayer Aspirin is harmless. See that tablets bear the name, thus: BAYER ^B ASPIRIN · FIRST IN FASHION AS WELL .' F5 IN QUAMVY AND VALUE ORE UALITY --the keynote of our New SPRING STYLES We've been selling' men's clothing for a good many years, and we have seen a lot, but never have we seen such marvelous qualities as we are showing- in our new Spring Styles at 522.50. We never dreamed that we would see the day when we could offer such wonderful fabrics or such remarkably fine tailoring and trimming- as we are showing- this season at our low price. We have taken advantage of market conditions this year to bring our already' fine clothes to the highest quality standard of fine clothes making; and that includes the important unseen parts as well as the parts you can see, feel and compare. ALL NO MORE OR NO LESS 9 fAST STATE...30 STEPS FROM FEDERAL . _ · . , . "J II- !·. TENNEY, Plymouth. 2? y ^ ars march °n and on, always great, but looming greater Stands this favorite native son, Lincoln, the Emancipator. Time brings into view new facts which touch up and light the story And add grandeur to_ his acts, and enhance his crown of glory. Lincoln faced the darkest hour in the history of our nation- Civil war began, to lower, and it meant disintegration Unless wisest statesmanship should the weighty problems master- Lincoln held things with strong grip, and averted grim disaster.. His calm trust and sure repose when conspiracies were brewing- His outwitting of his foes, those who plotted his undoing, His fairness and charity, mercy to his southern brother Prove convincingly that he mu st had guidance from Another. Friends who knew and loved him best, tell of nights of prayer and sorrow, When grave situations pressed, or impended on the morrow We recall vows that he made while waged Gettysburg's fierce battle lhat if God would send us aid, he would free all human chattel. Peace at last, and everywhere many were their gladness voicing; Then that' magic, foul affair hushed the peans and rejoicing' For the nation's chief lay low, millions at his bier were weeping;' Spite of dread assassin's blow, Lincoln's work goes onward sweeping. Where in annals can we trace story that is quite so thrilling Of one. who from humblest place, rose till highest station filling. Overcoming handicaps, winning by supreme endeavor, Many have been helped perhaps by his struggles to yield never. Who so fully is enshrined in his country's warm affection, He is loved by all mankind, and belongs to every section. Lincoln seems so near to us, one in sympathy and feeling; Without show, parade or fuss, just the common trait's revealing.
