Rippentro Sparkling Fresh From The Modern You'll want to have tihat "all dressed up" feeling at Easter time—this year more than ever because Spring will be so well advanced. So get out your favorite clothes and have them rejuvenated at the Moidem—cleaned and pressed—'With any necessary alterations made at moderate cost. .1 ; . . 'f .;*'." Modern Dry Cleaners & Tailors -HOLMES &CLOFTON PHONE 637 HARLAN STREET Gossip f Gossip is over-heated imagination, 'mostly founded** on lies and does a'great deal of harm. Truth ;lb founded on facts and never does anyone harm. Truth- will stand the light of day; gossip la always hiding in dark places. It is true that you pay for w'hat you get. It is also true that sometimes you do not get what you pay for. Right now we are all doing as our government tells us to do, for winning the war is the supreme objective. As to shoes, our government has allotted all the best sole leather to the army, order M-80 witdrawing all better grades. Thus the material for civilian use from now on will be the cheaper grades. No shoe factory will be allowed to use the better grades. No matter whether a shoe factory is making $4 shoes or $8.00 shoes they will use the cheaper sole.leather. They* cannot get any other kind to use. So you see shoes do not have to be expensive in order to give the same wear 'as though you paid a big price for them. You get the same shoes at Nevilles—but you pay less for them.

The corner druggist —with no axe to grind—would tell you that the cylinders hold the acid products of combustion.,. the makings of corrosion. Heretofore you didn't have all that worry, when the worst acid was chased out again and again, by repeated driving and continued speed that heated the engine thoroughly. Now however, when you are counting every coupon, how long will it be till you next use your car and drive it far enough to make the engine stay real warm?
