"Bob" Makes a Suggestion.
Bob has heard of so many things
of interest being done by our law
makers that he wants to comment
a little on some of them and make
a few suggestions. . '
First, our" congressmen have in
creased their salaries from five o
seven thousand dollars per year,
on the flimsy pretence that, they
could nor. live as well as they
should without the increase. Now
Bob fails to see any necessity for
such increase of salaries, because
there hasn't been any lack of can
didates seeking the offices, and in
some instances unfair means have
been resorted to o rescue nomina
tions and after the nomination
has been secured if it is necessary
to victory still worse means art
frequently used, thus proving that
it pays to be a public servant.
And there is talk of our increas
ing our great, big governor's sal
ary, and maybe it ought to be in
creased. And it has ben hinted
that there is a possibility of the
leeislatureiucreasine the dav of
- " m. a
its members. Now if the countn
has to foot these bills, while our
lawmakers are at work, B b Bug-
gests that they pass a law legu-
lating the seasons and eucourag-
iug the earth to be more produc-
tive, but thinks it might not b
wise to pass a law without a pen
alty, as a law without a penalty
is a dead letter.
Bob suggests that a law to en
courage local self-government be
passed giving the people the right
to elect a county superintendent
of public instruction, also a board
of education, taking superinten
dent and one member of board
from one political party and the
other members cf board from an
other political party thus making
it non-partisan. Bob.

LOOK OUT FOR IMITATIONS
With Tags About the Same
Color and Design As
The quality of the genuine sun cured tobacco used in
REYNOLDS' Sun Cured and grown on soil where the best
sun cured tobacco grows, has caused imitation brands to be
brought out and offered as the genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured
to unsuspecting dealers and chewers who do not look closely
at the printing on the box and on the tag.
These brands only imitate the outward appearance and do
nojb possess the genuine inside quality that has been found in
Reynold's Sun Cured ever since Reynolds' Sun Cured was
introduced and which has so increased the chewing of sun
cured tobaccos and proven so popular, that the word "Sun
Cured" is now printed on tags or in the advertising of many
bsands claimed to be genuine sun cured tobacco.
Did you ever see the word "Sun Cured" used in any
chewing tobacco advertisement, or on any chewing tobacco
tag or label, or in any other way, before it was introduced and
, used to identify the genuine Reynolds' Sun Cured ? You see
it frequently now, because inany imitation brands are being
made to appear as nearly like Reynolds' Sun Cured as they
dare with tag, shape of plug and style of package so similar
that experienced buyers sometimes accept these imitations as
the genuine Reynolds' Sun 'Cured.
Don't be deceived into taking imitation brands for the
genuine. Be sure the letters on the Jag spell " R-e-y-n-o-l-d-s'
Sun Cured," and you get the best value in sun cured chewing
tobacco that can be produced for chewers. Sold at 50c. per
pound in 5c. cuts ; strictly 10c. and 15c. plugs, with chewing
qualities likh, that which was sold from COc. to $1.00 per pound
before Reynolds' Sun Cured was offered to the trade.
