We wish that we were boys and girls so that we could start in school again, meet all our comrades and our nice teachers with nothing to do but study all the time. We can’t do that but we can sell you some fine tablets, pencils, pens, ink, blank books, chewing gum, fine combs, etc. In fact everything you need to get a good education quick. So boys and girls “kum on in.” Goodrich Druggists (Pillsforeverybody).

It’s torture for your cows and unprofitable for you because they give less milk. Spray them with Hoff’s Fly-Off, the best thing you ever saw to keep the pests away. Then you needn’t hunt the cows at night — they’ll come home to be sprayed with Fly-Off. The herd pretty nearly knocks the gate down for each one wants to be sprayed first.

The steamer Joel Bassett is at St. Cloud, and has been tied up for the season. Captain Craig left today for Anoka, where he will get acquainted with his family again, having put in a busy season with the boat this spring. The steamer will be in the care of Engineer Geo. Goodwin. The high water helped out the boom company by making short work of the big drive and it will be the last drive of the season past St. Cloud.
