AD.  If Mattresses Had Wheels.  Automobile factories come out with new models every year, and you know how automobiles have progressed.  But people do not drive around on mattresses, so mattress progress is known only to a fortunate comparative few.  The Simmons-Beautyrest mattress is as far ahead of the mattress  you may now be sleeping on, as a Rolls-Royce is ahead of a horse and buggy.  Come in today and try out the new Beautyrest.  The cost is less than you may expect – less than two cents per day – the best investment in health you’ll ever make.  F.P. Williams & Company.

Rev. J.W. Wheeler, of the Bon Ayr country, and Mr. Eugene Doyle, of Glasgow Junction, have returned from a visit to the Texas border and nearby sections of Old Mexico.  They went on a little excursion and reported a most delightful trip.

At the Trigg Theatre:  On Thursday and Friday, “Good Dame,” starring Sylvia Sidney and Frederic Marsh;  on Monday and Tuesday, “Bolero,” with Sally Rand, the Fan Dancer.  Miss Rand conceived, rehearsed, and performed the “fan dance” for two years with only one purpose in mind—to earn herself a “grub stake” that would support her in Hollywood where she hoped to break into the “real movies.” “Bolero” is her first screen appearance.

You Can Never Tell.  Who would have thought of George Evans being a horse fancier?  Fords would have been our guess.  But he is developing, along with other lines, not horses exactly, but ponies.  He has accumulated about eight ponies and on these warm days he spends much of his time just admiring them.  Asked what he intends to do with them, he said, “I don’t know.”  Neither do we.
