When two men, both of Uicin loved and respected by their fellow citi/en.-, seek the same office, n ilil'i'ictilt situation is created not only for th;ir mutual friends and acquaintances, but for all wlio are interested in obtaining the right kind of men for public office. It is true that with T. J. Ulahan and , \V. \V. Ilollipcter in tliu race ample assurance was given tli? public against the possibility of a wrong choice. We believe the same holds true with Mr. Hollipctcr reninining as a candidate, and it would be c<l llft My li'iio were Iho situation revcr.scd. Mr. Italian bus well earned any honor within the gift of his fellow citizens. M'c hope ami arc confident that his retirement from the' present race does not mean that there will be no future opportunity for TilyllieviUo and Mississippi county to grant him public recognition and to gain further benefit from his services. leave a .surplus, aUcnlion will naturally bo turned to .-ucuiulary and county highways, in the m::.nlimo our own and cvevy other ivinUy will have to make its rc:;d improvement program balance its means.

Nobody is going to iniarrel with the idea that county roads are needed, and certainly it will do no harm to think about means of-getting them, but the state highway department has already made committments that make" substantial slate aid for county highway development impossible for some time to come.

Vi'hen the suckers finally were turned away, S30.000 worth of Boob Oil Company stock had been purchased. During a subsequent boom, the sleek actually rose from i 13 to 94.

We have only to refer to our own dcppsit ledgers to ascertain just how little the foreign owned industries benefit local banks. When we go back over our experiences of many years in civic activities, wo recall that it was Uic men and corporations with heavy investments here who supported local institutions. The local independent business man carries all his surplus funds i'ti his local bank. The deposit of the chain store does not pay for the service rendered. It is M loss to the bank. Also, the. independent bank has the fame sort of competition from the group or chain bank systems. The more objectionable group system we have had in increasing importance for several years. The chain system of banking will come to meet the competition of the group system. The two will remove the old unit system of banks owned and controlled by local business men who are closely in touch with.,- and responsive to, local ueads and conditions. It is the independent unit bank that is today standing between the people of smaller communities 1 and the foreign control and domination of group and chain banks with directing heads in larger financial centers. , As an independent unit bank we are fighting the same battles that arc being fought by tlie independent merchant. The independent merchant and the independent bank must survive or perish together. It is but natural, therefore, that this bank should be vitally interested in the fight for existance being made by the independent merchant. The First National Bank Gene Howr.

London is the arbiter in matters of dress for men. But, New 'York and Chicago, Boston and San Francisco and hundreds of smaller cities and towns throughout the United States may know what are tlie latest styles even before they are shown in Pa-ris. A seeming paradox, but true. Merchants maintain representatives in Paris, London, Vienna and other European style centers who cable the latest news of the modes, and ship samples long before they arc sold abroad. In America, the news is translated into advertisements and printed by local newspapers throughout the United States. And so, American women are able to dress in the hvtest styles in dress .more accurately than the women of any other country on the face of the globe. Advertising keeps you abreast of the times in other ways. It tells you of the newest and best in every line of merchandise. It keeps you posted on what other people ivre doing and wearing and using. Read the advertisements. They are truthful and helpful. You can depend on their accuracy, for the reputations of the merchants sponsoring them guarantee their integrity. Read the advertisements to know what is yoinf} on in the world of merchandise.
