Morse, for many years one of the leading physicians at Bancroft and Algona. Dr. Morse, who for a ttnw lived In the south after leaving Algona some twenty yean ago, has for a number of yeara made his home hi Oakland, California. At present he is engaged In writing a book entitled "Fifty Tears as a Country Doctor."—Editor. (By Dr. W. E. H. Morse) In case any of your readers should contemplate coming to California to spend the winter, there are a ifew things they should fully understand before coming. California has a wonderful climate; in fact, it has any kind of a climate you might want. In the mountains we have winter, in the valleys, summer and along the coast spring and fall. So, come prepared witib. clothing to meet all occasions. Here in Oakland tine temperature varies only about fifty degrees for the whole year, but the nights are usually chilly. I like the climate here better than in any place I have ever lived. I have only crossed the bay a few times when it was comfortable to sit outside the cabin without wear- Ing an overcoat. Come out and enjoy our wonderful bracing climate, It will keep you young. No one out here, ever expects to die until ttney make a century run. If the climate dont mgke you young, Open the Season with an Open and Shut Value Policy At the start of anything, whether it's an operation for appendicitis or the nominating of a President —it is well to know all there is to know ahout what you can expect. Witness this— Today—the 2b'th of September, we pledge the following—That every Value Effort we have made in the past and every Price Preference we have earned are dead laurels now. We are out to outdo last season's business by increasing this season's values—and from the very start of Fall buying, which is now, you are going to see such values at Zender & Caldwell's that it will be hard for you to see any other store. New Fall Suits 13.50 18.50 20.00 22.50 24.50 29.50 12 Overcoats 14.50 18.50 22.50 Zender & Caldwell CLOTHING AND SHOES A Good Store In Algoua. go out to the beach and watch (he bathing bewrtfes rolling in the sand or taking ft <"P in the surf, with Just enough clothing on to keep from being accused of belonging to ft nude colony. If that don't make you young, or wish that you were young, then your ease to hopeless. (Ob! You Doe, you giddy young thing.) We are trying some great experiments here this year. Upton Sinclair is running for governor. H« says if he Is elected we will all be rich, happy and contented. That will surely be nloe. The flrtt «ct after he is sworn in la to pardon Tom Mooney, the dynamiter. Then Tom will probably blow up our "Devil's Island" and turn loose the tough gang ttncle Sam has sent there. Since tfie government has monopol- teed goM and silver, pennies are about the only medium of exchange we have and the state takes a share of them for sales tax. We are thinking of changing the name of the Golden Gate to Penny Gate or Copper Gate as being more appropriate. If Sinclair really gets elected I have no doubt but what we will cannonize him and change his name to Saint Clfttr. I would like very much to take a trip back through Iowa once more, but the troubte Is httch-hiking is getting very unpopular and my thumb to a little stiff. Very truly, Dr. W. E. H.
