Success As far oa success In life is concerned, some men are self-made. Circumstances make other men what the world calls successful. Sometimes the good wife is given credit for making her husband a success. She may help by making the path easier for him but as far as making him over, her chances are mighty slim. If his mother failed to make him what he ought to be no use for the wife to try, for at best she could only make a bad job of it. No power on earth can help the man that will not try for himself and nobody can stop the man that is determined to win. I notice girls that marry drunkards to reform them do not get far with the reformation. The wife's mission Is to make home pleasant for herself and family. The husband's duty is to provide that home with food, clothing, love and cheerfulness. Even these old girls like a hug and a kiss just as well as they did thirty or forty years ago. The self-made man, the poor boy who faces the responsibilities of life and pulls through is a better bet than any of your made-over men. A poor boy generally makes a better husband than the rich man's son. He knows the value of money. The school of experience has taught him how to live within his income. The young married couple starting out in life is the finest institution in this world. Anybody or anything that helps this couple to make their money go farther is a good thing, whether that be a fire sale, auction sale chain store, mail order house, or Jlmmie Neville shoe store. If they can buy a $5.00 pair of shoes at Neville's for $2.98, it is surely good business for them to do so. They have plenty of places for the $2.00 they save. She can buy Gold Stripe Jl.OO hose at Neville's for 69c. She can buy cvery-day stockings, nice ones, combed yarn, 2 pairs for 25c. She can buy children's shoes at «c, 88c or *l.l». He can suve &0c to Jl.OO a pair on work shoes. He can save $ZOq on a slieep-Jmcd coat. He can save oOc a dozen on husking gloves. They both save money on everything they buy ut Neville's. That is the reason Neville's itoru is always full of customers. They get good standard new goods and they know they are saving money. Jimmie Neville THE SHOJS MAN Recovering Nicely Mrs. Henry Schneider, gun accident victim In the Palo Alto county hospital, is much Improved. Fenton people are anxious for complete recovery.
