While swappin' ailments in th' Little Gem resturint th' other day, th' subject o' doctors camc^ xip. "I believe the-r'b been more change in doctors than ther has in women," declared Tell Blnkley. "An' jest think o' th' things that ails us t'day that nobudd) used t' have," he continued. "It wuz no uncommon thing t' have a leg sawed off wh^n th' Teal trouble wuz in a back tooth. Early doctors had no use for ice an' t'tlay our doctors pack us in ice. Jet thinK what easy sailln' th' gall bladder nsed t' have. It miz never us- plctoned, or even located, an' what a toll It took. Tonsils wuz unmolsted. A doctor wonldn' tlrnk o' blamlu' a tonsil any more'n he'd blame th' end o' our nose. 'TXictors dldn' know what wuz goin' on inside o' us. Th X-ray wua unknown, but sometimes a doctor would put his ear t' our chest if he heard a auspicious gUTliTi' A call o' th' family doctor rarely resulted in anything more'n a feu- oonrfortin' remarks an' a round box full o' villian- ous black pill left i.n th' bureau. W QLDSMOBILE CO. LAUNCHES SALE OF USED CARS we had a sore throat a red, not white, flannel bandage about th' neck wuz prescribed, an" soakin' th' feet in hot mustard water wu/. pop'la-. "Th' ole doctor drove- a horse an' almost beifore he could lav his p l u g hat oft th' bureau th' w i\ole house smelfed like a livery stable, a com- ralnglirt' o' horse, harness soap an' Kendall's tpavln cure. Tappin'. or blood lettln', w u z common among family doctors. It's l i t t ' e short o' wonderful how many people lived t' relate ther experiences vith family doctors. They left almo t as many armle*s an' legless victims iu ther wake as th' Civil War." Then Gribo Craw, landloid o' th' New Palace Hotel, said, "Well, sir, it's no wonder traveltn' quacks filled th' country nn' reaped r eh liar vesta in them d«ys. Years ago i. Dr, Wicker used t' pay monthly visit , an' stop at my hotel. He wuz th regulation quack, thick, glossy bla( Ss hair, high marble forehead, full plu np nose, an' th' widest, blackesi an' best groomed an' longest beard I've- pwr .seen off a yak. As extra added feature;, hp had a wide silk cord t' his nose glasses, srnelled like photographer's developer, an' woro a broadcloth Prince Albert coat. "I recall that Jake Bentley called tin Dr. Wicker in regard t' a stitch in his side. After llstenin 1 t' Jake's heart a while he left th' room. Presently he returned an' said, 'My triend, you're in a !ad way. You might hang OTI a year, or you might worry along fpr a month. You've- got oedema o' th' glottis /n an advanced form, an' tiler's unmistakable evidences o' laryngismus strid-ulus. You should begiu treatment at once--now.' "1 wiia talkin' t' Jake about Dr. Wicker a few days ago, an' he said. '8y cracky. 1 w u z so Reared I ne-ver did know how I got out o' that ole f]uack's olfic'!, but I've never had an ache or paiti since.' "At Chagrin Falls, Ohio, some twenty years later a spark from a locomotive- ignited Dr. Wicker's whiskers, completely tlestroyiu' th' doctor, an' only th' mo't heroic work o' flro-men saved th' bulldin's next t' him."

The manufacturer or the .merchan: who is not sure of his goods does not dare to t dvertise. Advertising would hasten the end of 1 is business career--put him to a test he could not meet. The man who advertises, deliberately invites your inspection. He tells you about his product or his merchandise and then lets it stand on its own merits. You can depend on him. He knows his product is gocd. That's one reason why it pays you to read the advertisements you find in the columns of this paper.

MAYTAG COMPANY ANNOUNCES NEW, IMPROVED WASHER At Newton, Iowa, the washer center of the world, the great Maytag factory, which dominate's the commercial activity of the lively Iowa city i« teeming with action. It has started on the- most ambitious program iu Maytag h1«tory, and the reason ie a now Maytag washer. Having originated the outstanding washer devalopments of many years, the an noun cement of a new waahcr by Maytag commands the interest of the entire waehing machine industry and millions .of housewivee everywhere. Before going into ' details which explain the many distinctive and novel features of this n«w wa»»her, it is well to get a mind picture of the vast facilities called into action for tta production. The new washer comee at the peak of a Maytag success whch has been one of the outstanding achievements of the industrial world. With a record businege in'1929, the Maytag Corn- panjp completed He seventh eucoes- sive year of world leadership. Public acceptance wwblch made thi» tremendous business possible, required continuous increases in production facilities, improvement in methods and new special machinery. The modern aluminum foundry and the immense gray Iron foundry, owned and operated by Maytag, cos* 12,000,000 to buikl. The balance of the plant slope the investment in plant, equipment and development work up to more than 14,000,000. An additional investment of half a million dollars in special machinery and equipment was necessary before the new Maytag could be produced. The aluminum foundry, -which IB one of the world's finest, produces the new one-piece cast-aluminum tub. Additional tools, patterns and production machinery were necessary to manufacture the new roller water remover. Thie special Maytag feature has a positive action, automatic drain, completely enclosed within the compact housing of the roller water remover. This new type of drain shunts the water directly into the right tub without spilling or eplashing, without attention from the operator. The only exposed part* of the new roller water remover are the top roll and the safety feed. The index-lock which permit* the water remover to swing and lock in seven different position* is protected by a dust-proof cap. The new Maytag ha* a quiet, enclosed lifetime, oil-packed drire. Thi« exceedingly quiet and smooth-running, eelf-oiled drire operates IB. a sealed housing. The gear IB always in mesh so that there to no clashing when the washer IB started or stopper. A new, handy auto-4jrp» shift lever is eoejly operated from any «ide of the waeher. The new Maytag hae a thumbscrew brake on the caster wheel, non-breakable electric attachment plug and other outstanding scientific developments which add to its convenience and waehing ability. The pride which the Maytag Company take* In i(s new product is full justified. The features of this new washer offer equally desirable advantage* to city and farm homes. Homes without electricity may have- the new Maytag equipped with an in-built gasoline multi-motor. Thte compact Maytag engine is now equipped with a new air cleaner. B. 0.
