O. A. Sturner, one of our local business men announced last week and again announcing this week, within the advertising columns of this paper a way through which you may have within your home a beautiful mahogany writing desk, the actual value being seventy-five dollars.

Mr. Sturner has always given value for every dollar spent in his store. The means, nor employed, in the giving away of a beautiful desk, is not in any way going to lessen that value. It is simply a means of acquainting the people, who do not know the values he is giving, with them and of obtaining new customers and friends for his store.

Read his advertisement in this paper, which gives you the way and means of helping yourself to obtain this beautiful desk.
