He may think he is but ninety-nine times out of a hundred the wife really is the boss. When it comes to running things at home he is just a dirty deuce in a new deck. A good woman Is the bell cow in our modern civilization. Her way Is the right way. It Is the only way to get along. It Is agalnet the law to have two wives. That is a wise law for no man can serve two masters. I belong to the Order of United Husbands, we meet whenever we get permission from our wives to do so. Women are like the sales tax, they get you coming .and going. It Is all Jurt human nature and the more huinSn we are the greater the Joy of living. This makes 47 years of double harness. We have had pur ups and downs, joys and sorrows side by each. Years have rolled away, But she is just as dear today As when the might y organ Played "Oh Promise Me." At home I am as meek as ft lamb, but at the store I am cold-blooded. You see I was born in the winter. One thing sure I am making some cold-blooded prices on all winter goods for the balance of January. Bargains! Bargains! We are thinking of nothing but Bargains— if you buy it at Neville's you sure have a bargain. W<i have a good fire and you are welcome. You will find your neighbors at Nevilles, Drop in and be scoiable.
