Kent Tell* Real Advertising Story If anyone doesn't believe that good advertising, coupled with a real desire to sell merchandise (which means having the price* right,) they should talk to Fred Kent The Kent Motor found Itself with 85 used ears, In the middle of January. Mr. Kent decided to really clean them ont, BO he got them ready, Instructed his salesmen to accept any and all reasonable «JfTeni made, and then began an active advertising campaign. He had sold over ?lft,000 worth, last week, and with new cars being delivered, will continue his same policy of advertising plus right prices. There Is no substituting, no cheaper way to move merchandise than good newspaper advertising tied In with real price bargains. FARM DIVIDEND EASYTHISWAY And Only Expense Is Bottle of Ink and Paper At Press Meeting Fenton: Karl Schwartz of this place and Ralph Anderson of Ringsted attended the Northwest Iowa Press association meeting at Swea City Friday. Karl Schwartz la secretary of the association. Read The Want Ads—It Pays. Making a ten cent bottle of ink and a few sheets of paper worth several hundred dollars may sound like a "blue sky promotion" but A. L. Brown, county agent, says it's merely a matter of keeping a farm record. Farmers should start keeping their farm record January 1 so they will have a complete account for the year. The first of the year Is the logical time to make the Inventory of crops, livestock, equipment and other material on hand. Farmers who keep records will find at least eight advantages of the practice: 1. Data for proof of performance in connection with the agricultural conservation program. 2. Data for assessor and crop reports. 3. Figures for states and federal ncome tax reports. 4. Protection against duplicate payment of kill*. 0. Information for establishment of fair credit rating. 6. Data for net worth statement to be used in getting loans. 7. Information on "leaks" In the farm business. i 8. Profit or loss from farm bus- ness. Complete records will enable the losing money, whether money Is being wasted on feed and similar facts necessary for efficient and profitable farming. Three kinds of record books are available to farmers. The simplest Is the AAA record book which provides a complete record of expenditures and receipts and the data needed for proof of performance and forms used In connection with the farm program. The Iowa farm business record book provides a complete record with more detailed summary and analysis sheets which help the farmer study his business operations more carefully. Naomi Struthers Ottosen Hostess Ottosen: The Ladies' Rural club met at the home of Naomi Struthers Thursday afternoon. Twenty- five members answered roll call with school days' memories.

A delicious lunch was served by the hostess, and assistant hostess, Mrs. J. A. Hanson. 3£8»aO3»3£8SC83Ka0£^^ i Honesty Where ever Honesty ia located you will nnd business. No matter whether that Is on the main drag, around the corner or down an alley. Honest goods, honest dealing, honest customers, and you are setting on top of the world. Nothing can stop a store of this kind from having a volume trade. Say what you are doing and do as you say. Put the cards on the table face up. We give our customers values. No prize packages, no trading stamps, just good, honest merchandise with the profit squeezed down to the very lowest per cent that will allow the store to exist. All prizes given with merchandise cost money and the customers pay for it. The ones that do not receive a prize help pay for the prize the other fellow gets. There U no such thing as something for nothing. When the manufacturer incurs an added expense he passes it along to the merchant. When the merchant adds another expense to his overhead, he passes it along to the consumer. You may think it is a free gift, but you are paying plenty for it just the same. There are none of us in business for our health. I know with my small profit if I gave away 2 per cent, I would have to raise the price on shoes. Two per cent on our last year's sales would mean $1700.00, that is about all I made above expenses. It may bs all right for the regular merchant getting regulation prices but with my small profit plan I can not aflord it Jimmie Neville ARMED GUARD FOR PROWLER ATUVERMORE Car Circles Elevator But Wary of Entering Building Chet Holcomb. manager of the North Iowa Grain company at Llv- ermore, dressed himself In heavy clothing and armed himself with gu:if" and hid out nil night In the fllevator to await the arrival of a« expected grai.i thief, but the robber failed to show up, Monday night. Holcomb learned a thief was Interested in the elevator Sunday evening when he returned from a trip to Sexton with Mrs. Holcomb and Mr. and Mrs. John Mattsen of Arnold. Finds Broken Window As Holcomb was walking up the driveway with the intention of locking up the elevator and return- Ing to his home, which is only a short distance away, he noticed that a part of the window In the driveway leading to his office was broken. He hurriedly entered the office to find that broken glass was scattered over the floor. A hasty survey showed that nothing had been removed from the safe whlcb had been left unlocked by the manager and which contained no cash. Then Holcomb's curiosity was further aroused as to how they entered the building In the first place, and he soon discovered footprints on the south side of the building outside where they had gained entrance by walking under the elevator, which Is built high from the ground. The thieves had located the position of the trap door and had entered through this opening. It was easy then to cross the driveway, break the window, reach through and unlock the door and enter the office. Just what the motive was Is not fully determined, but the supposition Is that the thief expected to get the general lay of the bins and spouts and perhaps expected to return some time later for a truck load of grain. Wanted Big Haul? The manager is doubtful that it was merely a sack or two of grain the robber was after, In view of the fact that the same footprints that were found on the south side of the building and In the chaff under the building, were also evident on the steps leading to the second story where grain in larger quantity Is In storage. This would lead one to believe that it WM the Intention of the man to locate certain bin* and •pout*, otherwise the •mailer am- Elect Officers Of Catholic Societies WMttenaore: The new officers for the Holy Name society and the Rosary society were announced Sunday.

Nice Ice Yield Frankl's store Ice house was fill' ed last week, Ice being hauled from the river. The quality is reported as being quite solid this year. Although the store enjoys electric refrigeration, the ice house Is always filled for retail purposes. Holcomb, who Is an expert marksman, lost no time in ordering his guns to the scene, and with extra warm garb lay in wait, hoping, if the thief returned for a load of grain, he would happen along while he was ready for him. , At 2 a. m. Monday a car stopped near the Rock Island station, which Is located a short distance from the elevator, focusing its lights on the Rosenberg Wicks Lumber company buildings, then backing out slowly, started north. The car traveled in that direction for only two blocks, turned west, back south to within a short distance of the elevator, but took the street north, traveling east, which brought It back within a quarter of a block of the lumber office again, and then continued to travel eastward. It could easily be distingushed in the moonlight that the car was a new one, and a coupe. The car finally disappeared and Holcomb failed to get his anticipated encounter with the thief. ^ Ottosen Benefit Club Party Held Last Wednesday Ottosen: The Ottosen Progressive club sponsored a benefit card party Wednesday evening at the school house.

Accidents kill more children In this age group than diseases. Think of if Parents and teachers should warn the youngsters of the things listed below so that they will re- mcmbe" them and be guided by them. 1. Never cross a street without looking In both directions to see if any cars are coming. 2. Always cross the street with the lights. 3. Never cross a street diagonal!? or In the middle of a block. 4. Never step into the street from behind a parked car or mor- Ing vehicle. 5. Never play in the streets. 6. Never "hook" rides on track* or wagcns. What do you do for frost.bites? What are the symptoms of frost bites? Keep the patient away from fir* or warmly heated room. Apply palm of hand, wool, or fur to affected part. Massage the parts very gently, then apply cold water. Apply ointment as you would to a burn because frost bite is the same in effect. The object of the treatment is to bring the frozen part of the body back to normal temperature gradually and to restore circulation.
