PAGE TWO KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA, IOWA COAL "OUR SPECIAL" NO HOTTER COAL MINED Try A Load and Prove This Statement RAESLY LUMBER COMPANY Phone 234—Yard Milwaukee Depot Plaza Advice Advice like castor oil is easy to give but hard to take. I have cautioned my wife about those slippery roads and told her whenever she slipped to just sit down easy like. That is what the back part of a woman is made for, to sit on. She slipped, went up in the air, came down on her elbow, and broke her arm. She still does lots of talking, but she can not throw dishes with her left hand. Dr. says I am safe for six weeks. Now for a hired girl — she must be good looking, wear Neville's nice shoes, and not stay out any night later than 2 oclock. Only half her time allowed at the phone calling up friends, making dates, and only four nights a week off duty. It is not a matter of much work. Mother can do most of it with one hand, but as I expect to pay the girl I hire I would like to see her around part of the time. She is also asked to keep her fellow out of my old rocking chair. This chair was not made for two, and like myself, it is getting kind of shakey. I am not home very much as I am too busy at the store. During January and February it keeps a fellow busy trying to make ends meet. Right now the basement is full *of women and it sounds like a European war had started. I suppose they are fighting over the bargains. Mrs. Tribon is leading a revolution against high prices and making this country safe for the people with a limited income. Neville's Bargain Basement is made very comfortable for yourself and the safest place in this world for your pocketbook. Dresses at half what you would pay for them anywhere else, and those slippers at 49c are marvelous. basement is only 20 by 40, but it is lull of bargains. Lace curtains, towels pa- jmaas, play suits, caps, children's overalls hosiery, and many other things. Mrs. Tribon and Delores are the busiest two people in town. Beulah has to go down and help out every once in a while. Ked hot bargains on tap all the time Neville THE HEALTH OF THIS LITTLE FELLOW DEPENDS ON HEAT Buy your coal where you get the most heat units for the money. It's heat units that keep this little fellow warm and illness away. It is not worth a few cents to take a chance on his health. At Norton's we have made a special study of heating problems and the best coal to solve these problems economically. Buy heat units when you buy coal.
