Went Scotch"
Minneapolis, Minn.

'Dear Sirs:
Two years ago last winter I went
into the Red Lake gold fields in
Canada. It was a tough trail from
Hudson, over 140 miles of snow and
ice. There were fourteen of us on the
trail going in, and frequently at night
when seated around a big camp fire,
come one would ask me for a pipeful
of Edgeworth.dThese Canadian boys
sure like our Edgeworth.
In four weeks' time I ran out of
Edgeworth. I was glad to get 'most
any old tobacco.
One day, nowever, I dropped in to
Dad Brown's tent, a 72-year-old pros-
pector, and seeing a can of Edgeworth
on an improvised table, back there 150
miles from the "steel," I perked up at
once, saying, "Dad, I'm plum out of
tobacco-how's chances for a pipe-
ful?" "Help yourself," he said. So
pulling my heavy duty pipe from my
pocket,,I loaded it with Edgeworth,
packing it in so tightly that I couldn't
get the least bit of a draw.
I excused myself for a moment, and
stepped outside to remove about three
pipefuls to put in my pouch. Dad
stepped out, saying, "You're worse
than any Scotchman I ever saw."
Then I confessed. I told him what
happened to my Edgeworth-that I
was just dying for a smoke, and he
understood right away. He said,
"Boy, Edgeworth is mighty scarce in
these parts, but I reckon I can spare
what's left of that can. Help yourself."
You can just bet your last nickel
that I guarded this Edgeworth with
extreme care until I got back to the
"steel."
Yours very truly,
C. M. Bahr

Electri*c Cooking
Is astier
F OODS cooked electrically retain their
natural flavor, because the natural
juices are sealed in. Meats and vegetables
are tastier, cakes and biscuits are lighter,
and pies more flaky. Once you have
enjoyed electric cooking you will never
again agree to cook with fuel.
You can enjoy electric cooking in your kitchen now. Con-
venient time payments and a liberal allowance for your
present cooking equipment make it unusually easy for
youto own a modern electric range. Come in
and inspect the many attractive models.

THE CITIZENSHIP SCHOOL
Considerable publicity has beenI
given recently to the conference of,
the League of Women Voters whichj
is being held in Ann Arbor. It seems
to us that all of this is justified by
the aims and purposes of the or-
ganization and by the influences
which it is bringing to bear on the
American political situaton.
The League of Women Voters was
organized to include all women who
were interested in their new voting
independence and who wanted to
exercise their political power in as
intelligent a way as possible. Out
of this desire has arisen the plan
