"Tile only pruiicsltlon ever passed be

by myself to him that we should each
take one delegate, and the question of
their voting for Mr. Wright without
any return frmi his own political home
wns to lie submitted to arbitration. In
case 1 win this tight 1 nin willing, ns
I have been all through, that Air. Van
Wornur r.honld have the support of one
delegate. There has never been any
question between Air. VnnWormer nnd
myself on this point, ej.eopt as he has
raised It by entering this tight with
Air. Wright, against myself. t'nder
the present delegate system. If every
office holder claimed antl received the
Montrose delegates for renomlnation
simply because he was obliged to live
here to perform the duties of the of
tice to which he was elected; Alontrone
could never have a choice of an officer,
except as he voted for renoniinatlons."

Peruse These Pointers:
To obtain best results a refrigerator must be thoroughly
! ;lcar.ed onse a week a difficult task ordinarily, but so easy
with The National. You simply remove ice chamber, drip
pan and waste pipe, and there you are. (See cut.) An in
; ;enious little device enables j'ou to remove waste pan and
:lrip cupx from .front, thus avoiding , the old back breaking
method.' These new. points, coupled w.'th a finely polished
Dak c.'ise, carved panels and Roman gold trimmings make
:his the' simplest most ornamental and economical refriger
Uor on the market. Call or write for catalogue.

Did you ever stop to cou
sider how many $'s worth of
meat, milk, butter, etc., you
throw awa' every summer for
want of a good Refrigerator,
to sa' nothing of the incon
venience and extra cost ot be
ing compelled to buy all per
ishable articles in driblets.
Now a reafly good one will
save enough of those $'sinoue
season to pay for itself, and
that is the title we claim for
