Boost Logan
Logan's Progress Well Worthy of Proper Praise and Credit

LOGAN has many fine organizations, which are the life of any community. There are civic, social, church, fraternal, and school clubs and societies which are adding much to the pleasure of living in Logan, of having an interest in all affairs and of creating good citizenship. We have only space enough here to enumerate these different organizations, and give a very brief outline of what they are. At some other time it is the plan of this newspaper to devote a part of its pages to these very important organizations; without them we would have no town; with them we have one of the finest, cleanest, and most desirable places in the entire country. Logan residents know that and every new family that comes to our city to take up their residence, realize it. Logan has eight churches, fourteen lodges and fraternal organizations, five of the finest school buildings to be found anywhere, three grade schools, a junior and senior high school; two very live and wide-awake civic organizations and many social clubs and women's clubs that all tend to make this the greatest little city in the state. From the very enthusiastic way in which all the business and professional men of Logan took hold of this Booster Edition of The Democrat-Sentinel and the hearty co-operation we received from everyone that we came in contact while promoting this Edition, made it indeed a great pleasure to do. Everyone thot that such an edition would as this should come more often and that everyone should take a more active interest in the welfare and betterment of Logan. We can all do at least a little and all those things added together will make one fine, big and desirable city for those living here, and for those who contemplate making Logan their residence in the future.

All For One and One for All, All the Time
This issue of The Democrat-Sentinel, appropriately termed a Civic Survey Issue, has been made possible through the hearty co-operation and good will of practically all the Logan business men; and we feel that the above slogan is a very appropriate one for all to adopt. This is an issue contemplated to inspire in every resident a feeling of confidence, good fellowship and an eagerness to trade at home, work at home and play at home. The individual articles concerning our stores, as well as those concerning our industries, churches, schools, lodges, fraternal and civic organizations, have been editorially prepared and bear the OK of each and every business man. The purpose of this evidence self-evident--it is a Booster Edition. Surely, every resident takes a justifiable amount of pride in the achievements of his home town, and there is every reason under the shining sun to feel proud of Logan. Composed of a population of reliable, honest, well-meaning citizens; with a host of excellent stores, industries, sending forth wares to all parts of the country and plenty of social and educational reaction, Logan bids fair to become still greater and better and every man, woman and child should bear in mind that, inasmuch, "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," likewise a city or community is exactly what the individual makes it, by personal enthusiasm, hearty co-operation, and an abiding faith in his home town. This edition is dedicated to this effort, and has for its aim this achievement.

THERE is another side of the life of any community and that is the social side. Logan has a great many lodges and fraternal organizations and it would be impossible for us to mention all of them. Then too, there are the clubs and societies that are too numerous to make mention of here. We will have only space enough to call their names to the attention of all our readers and allow some other time and space to take care of the different ones in detail. We do want to say just a little regarding our school system in Logan, the finest that can be found anyplace, even in the larger cities. There are five of the very best school buildings that one could imagine, located: One in the East end; one in the West end; and one in the Central part of Logan, these all being Grade schools; then there is a Senior High school located on North street, next to the Central Grade school, and a Junior High School, located on the same street. In this fine building, which was completed last fall, is a first class and fully equipped gymnasium; north of these buildings is an Athletic Field, for all kinds of out-door sports. Again we repeat, so that you will not miss the assertion, that Logan has the finest school system to be found in any city, even those much larger than our city. The big cities have a large system, because of the demand, but they do not have any better.
Then we want to mention, just briefly, the two live and wide-awake civic organizations, that are working all the time to make this old town the best and most desirable place in which to live. They are, the Rotary and the Kiwanis Clubs. The Rotary Club meets every Monday evening at the Easterling club house and the Kiwanis Club meets every Thursday evening at the same place. Both organizations have done much for Logan and its citizens. They are made up of real Logan boosters who have the interest of all at heart.
Everything possible is done for the convenience of the general public at the well-known restaurant conducted on West Main street by Masts, one of Logan's leading restaurants and eating places. This establishment has achieved an excellent reputation and scored a high percentage of steady customers through their untiring efforts to please, and a meal en joyed at their restaurant is sure to be followed by others whenever you are hungry. The place is very well equipped, has comfortable tables and chairs for ladies and gentlemen, as well as a large counter. Regular meals at popular prices are served in a very pleasing and courteous manner. Meals consisting of all the highest grade meats, vegetables, pastries, good coffee and other drinks to suit, all combine to make this restaurant a very desirable place to eat. Their kitchen is always open to inspection, and their chefs have a record that is hard to beat, for they cook everything exactly right Short orders and hot and cold lunches, sandwiches of all kinds, with every other need at hand account for the high standing this restaurant has with the people of this city.
"The Soft Place" is the name Ed Hefty adopted when he took charge of the lunch room, soft drink and billiard parlors on West Main street and today there are hundreds of men and young men of Logan and surrounding territory who have become regular patrons of Ed's because they like the service given them. Ed has secured some of the best billiard tables, is making an enlargement and re-arrangement of the building so that before long all will have an opportunity to visit this modern and up-to-the-minute billiard hall. He also serves the highest grades of soft drinks, carbonated beverages and lunches, as well as candies, cigars, cigarettes, etc. This place is popu1ar with the men folks because they can go there and enjoy themselves, play billiards, enjoy a quiet smoke, watch the baseball ticker, while talking over the sporting events or other news of public interest. In brief this is one of the most used and most popular reception parlors in the city; and one that is in every sense of the word complies with the wishes and requirements of the large host of friends who trade there.
It is certainly a fine idea for any busines to maintain a full and true cash system; this is a great saving to the buyer and it proves very satisfactory to the store-keeper as well. Mr. Frank McGonigal, proprietor of the well-known McGonigal Cash and Carry Grocery, 490 West Hunter street, says that it has proven very satisfactory both to his patrons and to himself to maintain this very popular cash and carry grocery system. A real saving can be achieved and in a few months makes a most important item in the purchase and consumption groceries and table necessities. At McGonigal's you can obtain any kind of staple and fancy groceries, fruits, vegetables, canned goods, country produce and provisions of all kinds, and they are all well kept in a well-regulated and strictly sanitary manner. They also have a modern and up-to-date Meat Market where you can get all the latest cuts of fresh meats, as well as all kinds of smoked and salted meats; with a fine, new cooler and meat display counter. Everything is sold at the most reasonable prices, considering the high quality of the produce etc. This firm greatly appreciates the patronage they have received in the past and ask that we pass that appreciation on to the readers of The Democrat- Sentinel in this Booster.
The average family delights in painting, wall papering, interior and exterior decorating and improvements of a like nature about the house and home, and when this work is done, the best and safest policy of all is to have the work done by one of our reliable home painters, paper hangers and wall paper stores. In this respect we wish to make prominent mention of the well known Logan Wall Paper Store, 312 West Main Street. This store has for a long time been doing high class wall papering, decorating, painting, calcimiming, and dealing in a high-grade line of wall paper, paints, oils, varnishes, etc. Their stocks are always complete and up-to-date, and their work of a nature that stands without reflection as to their superiority and earnest desire to do every job right. They will be glad to make estimates, or to furnish bills of estimate on the wall paper, paints, oils, etc. needed for any job, or will do the work in a manner that will surely please. It is one of Logan's foremost home institutions of business, well worthy of patronage.
Throughout Logan, and all the surrounding rural territory there are hundreds of families and individuals, in all walks of life, who have been buying hardware and supplies from the well-known Armstrong Hardware Store, 82 East Main street. It is the desire of the Democrat-Sentinel, in this review of Logan's progress and attainments, to speak briefly yet sincerely, of the manner in which this company has conducted their business and the excellent service they have given all residents and strangers. The store is well-stocked with a fine line of light and heavy hardware of all kinds, tools, minors' supplies, farmers' equipment, household a n d kitchen utensils, cutlery, paints, oils, varnishes, hunting and sporting goods, stoves and hundreds of other things for building and construction purposes, as well as for about the home and farm. This store has always held a high place in the estimation of patrons, because they have always sold at reasonable prices and always given the best of service. It is one of our leading and best business establishments.
Residents of Logan have one organization in this city that they are very proud of, and justly so. That is the Spinning Wheel Tea Room, located at corner of Main and Market streets, and under the very able and courteous management of Mae Hillis-Gilbert. This is a feature that has been added to Logan within the last year and is enjoying the patronage of hundreds of Logan's citizens who appreciate such an institution. They cater to the general public, serving regular meals three times a day, as well as to all kinds of parties, entertainments, etc. Their dining room is very beautifully and artistically decorated and their meals are beyond comparison or description. In brief The Spinning Wheel Tea Room gives to you all that you could ask for in the way of service, meals and courteous treatment and is most worthy of your patronage. In one part of the Tea Room is conducted a circulating library under the very pleasing supervision of Olivia Wright; there also, are on sale all the latest books and newest fiction as well as stationery and all kinds of gift cards, place cards, etc. Other little novelties have been added until it is an ideal place for anyone to buy any of these things, and be assured that they are the very latest.
Spring and summer, rain or shine, sick or well, there is always something to be secured at the modern pharmacy that is delightful and necessary. In former years a drug atore was looked upon as a place where patent medicines were sold and prescriptions filled but with these changing times this has also been entirely changed. An example of this may be found in the Ewing Pharmacy, corner of Main and Market streets, perhaps the foremost pharmacy in Logan, and certainly one of the most up-to-date. Here may be found not only a registered pharmacist to take care of the prescription work, and a complete line of patent medicines and pharmaceutical supplies, family medicine, etc., but also an immense stock of toilet articles, perfumes, stationery, cigars, a model soda fountain and icecream parlor; in brief it contains practically every item that could well be expected in a modern pharmacy that caters to the wants and requirements of a large and steadily increasing patronage. Competent management, reliable pharmaceutical supplies and complete stocks of everything in their line, has placed this pharmacy where it is today.
The season is now here when we all enjoy a fine ice cream soda or sundae and especially the kind that is produced in a very pleasing manner and served in the same courteous way at Candyland, "The Home of Sweets", 28 W. Main street. There you can obtain the choicest kinds of pure confections, ice-cream, candies in bulk and in .boxes and many other things that appeal to everyone. This popular confectionary is one of the most modern and well equipped to be found anywhere and so far overshadows any other place in Logan that there is no comparison, with beautiful equipment, comfortable and attractive booths and tables, is modern and efficient. Mr. Francis is certainly working hard to give the people of this locality a service of the highest excellence. Nothing but the purest grades of icecream, flavoring syrups, and pure fresh fruits are used in preparing these various dishes. Their line of candies- which are all made in their fine candy kitchen, is becoming more and more popular as more people use them. Like their candies, their ice-cream is manufactured in their own plant and they guarantee everything to be pure and wholesome. It is a popular place for young and old. A courteous, cordial welcome is given every one.
One of the prominent business offices of Logan, and one that is enjoying a steady growth in their line of business is that of real estate insurance and rental office conducted by the well-known business man, J. W. Gabriel, at 30 West Main street. Today the office is known and recognized as a real leader which has been built up through the efforts of Mr. Gabriel and the policy of prompt, efficient service, always giving his patrons the best effort, securing good prices for property sold, and always selling at the very lowest prices. He conducts a rental department and property either listed for sale or rent, is sure to secure the best results through his efforts. He has an insurance department and writes fire, accident and other forms of insurance in old line and reliable companies. The office has always borne a splendid reputation for efficient service and personally Mr. Gabriel is known as a hustler and a booster who will always find time and willingness to do his full share of boosting for the home town, and to conduct his business in an efficient a n d very satisfactory manner
The old saying that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" applies more forcibly than ever before, now that we have the movie theatre at our disposal in such splendid form, and every day there are thousands of people who delight in this realistic and pleasing form of entertainment, while spending a delightful and profitable period resting, or by taking the family for an evening's pleasure. The Logan Opera House, under the very able management of Mr. Oberle, has certainly taken an active part in providing for this form of pleasure and entertainment, and with their daily matinees and evening shows they are achieving great results in giving patrons the best results in the movie realm.

During the past seasons more and more attention has been paid by pure food experts, physicians, and health officials to the quality of carbonated beverages dispensed, and all of them together have agreed that pure carbonated water, when used in connection with the manufacture of carbonated beverages, form not only a delicious drink, but is really healthful. In this respect it may well be said that the Henderson-Shaw Bottling Works, under its very able management, has taken the lead, for their plant and equipment and the manner of operation has passed all inspections of state and local health officials very successfully. Not only is their bottling work sanitary and modern thruout, but the purity and wholesomeness of their products has always been recognized, and it has grown accordingly.

A great amount of the community work and civic progress conducted in any city naturally is the work of the banks of that city, and the financial institutions may well be taken as a barometer to gauge the public's pulse, in all matters concerning advancement and attainment. It is only natural that when a community is composed of thrifty, economical people who saved a part of their earnings, and who are careful of their investments, shall prosper and grow. Thus strangers judge a city, and thus strangers look upon Logan as a prosperous, thrifty city, for we have three of the best banks in any city its size in the country, bar none. In this short article we wish to speak briefly, yet enthusiastically of the splendid work of the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Logan. This bank is one of the leaders in this community and has alwaye filled the needs of this and surrounding territory, working wholeheartedly with residents, encouraging savings accounts of all and helping business men, laboring men, farmers and returned business men in their business and financial work by giving the people a bank composed of energetic, honest, sociable directors and officers, who are unbounded in their integrity and whole-souled in their responsibility. The Farmers and Merchants Bank pays special attention to numerous phases of modern banking work—savings accounts, handling securities and bonds, farm loans, checking accounts and in brief, every line of modern, safe banking procedure. The Fanners and Merchants Bank, with a capital stock of $50,000 and a surplus of $60,000 may well be considered an example, and it is looked upon today as one of the prime factors of the city's progress. The officers and directors encourage savings and promote economy. They safely guard the deposits in the checking accounts and other departments, and are always interested in the work of their depositors and friends. Residents who have not as yet started a bank account and who are seeking a home for their money, where they will feel welcome and at home, will certainly help themselves and grow by starting account in this bank.
Much has been said, and much more, fortunately, has been achieved, in an earnest, conscientious effort upon the part of Logan's citizens generally, to make Logan one of the best cities in the country. It is possible, and sooner or later, if the proper spirit of co-operation is shown, the city will find itself, with every resident, covered with glory and due credit because we have succeeded. It is only natural that success should come to the economical, the progressive and the thrifty, for these three cardinal features mark a sure course toward bigger and better things. Largely, the progress of a community is indicated by the value of the deposits in bank. One of our leading statesmen recently declared that when a community showed a large percentage of residents saving part of their earnings, he would point out a community that was headed for success end rapid growth. If it were possible to go over the list of depositors in the Fisrt National Bank, and see the list of depositors to the checking department or in the savings department, we feel certain we could show the world just who the progressive people are; for these depositors, together with those in our other two banks, certainly are the boosters and the hustlers. The First National Bank has for many years endeavored to promote this spirit of economy and has succeeded in attaining that much-desired point in their work—the confidence of I everyone, and deposits that show clearly that this confidence is backed by real business. This bank has shown every depositor how valuable it is to have a bank account. They treat everyone courteously, in a friendly way, and take a personal interest in their welfare. Their accounts are carefully safeguarded by adequate capital, resources and undivided profits that show the bank to mean what they are telling the people. They are a class of our leading financiers, all promoters of good will and civic endeavor and have the entire confidence of everyone. They are always pleased to greet their patrons, on an equal footing, to confer or consult with them, and in every possible manner, make it pleasure to be thrifty and save. Farmers, business men and residents generally are welcome and their accounts highly appeciated.

The inevitable in these practical times is faced somewhat differently from the olden days. When death comes to family or friend now, there is not so much sentiment displayed. We accept the situation gracefully and proceed quietly to do our duty by the departed. In this respect, the experience and later day methods of Heinlein Bros, at 204 West Main Street, aids much in the passing event. They assume full charge of all funeral arrangements, and move about in their solemn duty in such a manner as to relieve the living from as much serious thought and sorrow as possible. Heinlein Bros. are thoroughly schooled in their profession and their fine funeral parlors and private chapel are modern and in keeping with the demands of the present day.

Every day, in every locality, not only in Logan and surrounding territory, but in all other cities and communities, more and more people, young and old, are beginning to appreciate the value of Chiropractic adjustments, and are proving by their own experiences that it is a scientific, efficient and logical method of eliminating the cause of disease and helping nature restore health through natural channels. Chiropractic works entirely thru the theory of adjusting the spine, made up of numerous small vertebrae, which, many times, become slightly out of alignment. This creates a pressure upon the great nerve forces, which are housed in the spine. Chiropractic adjusts these misplaced vertebrae and permits a free, uninterrupted nerve force to flow through the body, and gives a full measure of power to this all-important bodily influence. It has been thoroughly tried and proven, and hundreds of residents have, through their own experience become satisfied and convinced. One of the leading Chiropractors of Logan is Mignon Rose Hummel, Court Park, who has been here a long time, and who will be glad to carefully explain this system to all who call.

John Ohlinger, whose splendid store is the subject of this sketch in our Business Review and Booster Edition, conducts an establishment that is meeting with the general approval and praise of scores upon scores of the best dressed men and young men of this city and surrounding territory today. This has been made possible through the personal efforts of Mr. Ohlinger to give every patron of his establishment exactly what they want--offering a timely suggestions of the latest styles, best appearing clothes and latest haberdashery and in a general way, making his work and stocks please his patrons. The tailoring department is equipped in a most complete manner to turn out the finest tailored suits, coats, trousers, topcoats, etc., and all fashioned to the most popular and stylish manner. Mr. Ohlinger also has a splendid stock of shirts, hats, caps, ties, hosiery, underwear, and scores of other things for the well-dressed man and young man, as well as serviceable work clothes of the best makes. This place is worthy of special mention and popular patronage, which we gladly bespeak for them.
The best that the telephone company receives from the average patron of their lines and service, is a casual word, and frequently that is tinged with sarcasm over a seeming fault in the service provided by the company; and at best they receive but scant praise for what they really have achieved. As a matter of fact, the Logan Home Telephone Company, of whom we are, directly speaking as an example of what has been accomplished, to give patrons first-class service, has done what few companies have achieved in a town as small as Logan. They have put underground cables throughout the city; they have recently moved into their new home on East Second street, where all, new and up-to-date equipment is to be found; a new and unique switch board, the latest that could be bought; as well as all other new and modern equipment throughout their system. They are also owners in the entirety of the Bell Telephone Company here, and users of their service can call here with out any exchanges. In addition to all of these things, with this excellent service, modern equpiment, etc., the Logan Home Telephone is receiving less pay in return for all this than any other city of like size in the valley; and at the same time these other companies, with a higher rate, do not have all these modern and up-to-date facilities to give their users the best of service. Then too, these other companies have a smaller list of subscribers, thus limiting those that are users to a smaller number of persons who can be called over their lines. We would venture the assertion that there is no city in the whole United States that has so modern and satisfying service, at so low a rate charged for all of that. The local exchange is operated under strictly economical, money-saving basis, with expert operators in charge of the switch boards and service afforded that means much to all the patrons. Courtesy, efficiency and promptness are the watchwords in the office, and are three things that are insisted upon. Manager John Collins is desirous of having each and every one who have any suggestions to make to get in touch with him at once, so that all matters can be looked up at the earliest possible time. He also wants us to say that he very much regrets any slowness in the service during the past few weeks, but it was due to the fact that they are changing over to the new home.
This is the season of the year when everyone is having their suits cleaned and pressed. In the spring and summer there is always more need for the proper kind of cleaning and pressing of suits, and in fact, all kinds of clothes, because at Warner's they can clean and press any kind of clothing. Every man and young man knows that clothes will not only look better, but they will wear longer, if they are properly cleaned, pressed and in a good state of repair. Along with all this service they do not charge you a high and exhorbitant price for the work done, and all their work is guaranteed satisfactory. They have modern facilities for doing all kinds of work including cleaning, pressing, dyeing both men and women's clothing and garments. Expert attention is always given each job they do, and it is properly cleaned, dyed or whatever is required and then delivered promptly. It is a real pleasure to patronize this popular home establishment that does much better work than can be obtained away from Logan.
Every housewife, in buying groceries and provisions for her family, delights in trading with an establishment that she is confident is conducted in modern ways, with sanitary surroundings and a varied and excellent stock of groceries, fruits, vegetables, etc. In this respect it is a genuine pleasure to refer enthusiastically to the up-to-date grocery conducted at the corner of Main and Spring streets under the firm name of Ohlinger's Cash Grocery. It is a store, under the very able management of Ed Ohlinger, is one of the best of its kind in the city, having at all times a fine line of high grade canned goods, fresh and staple groceries, country produce, fruits, vegetables, summer delicacies and scores of other items for the home and table, that make cooking and preparing meals a pleasure instead of a drudgery. They pay especial attention to telephone calls and their work is at once efficient, courteous and with it all their goods are sold at most reasonable prices every shopping day of the year.

The writer of this article was talking with a miller the other day, and he said: "The reason flour is so hih, is because everyone is buying bakers' bread instead of baking it themselves." This may be, or may not be good logic, but to the tired housewife, who has a world of work to do, it certainly appears to be a fine thing that she is able to buy a pound of bread, well baked, and satisfactory to all members of her family, for a few cents, without the woory and trouble, these warm days, of baking it herself. This is exactley what is being provided by the bakeries of Logan; and prominent leader in this fine work is the Main Baking Co., bakers of the well-known "People's Bread." This well known bakery supplies a larger percentage of the families, through various groceries and in their own retail department, with delicious bread, cakes, rolls, cookies, etc. and every bit of it is the finest product of the master bakers' art. They are made from pure ingredients, baked just right in modern ovens, by skilled bakers, from receipts that contain exactly what the housewife would use if she were baking these things. This bakery is one of the recognized leaders in Logan, and is to be highly recommended to everyone.

Times are changing and so it is in every line of business. Back in the time- when this well-known and popular barber shop started, some fifteen years ago, all that its patrons wasted .was a haircut and a shave ; but now the times have changed and this firm has kept pace with the rapidly growing requirements along their line. Today the Eberst & Brandt Barber Shop is one of the best, if not the best, equipped shops in Logan and the valley.

Physicians, health officials, pure food experts, in fact every one who makes a study of health and healthful foods, say that there is nothing more desirable for growing children as well as adults, than pure ice- cream which has been properly produced. It is confection not only healthful, but pleasing to taste, refreshing and invigorating, while at the same time containing high food values.1 With all this it is small wonder that The Logan Ice Cream Company is making such rapid progress, producing this wonderful food for the entire valley; because they are making this ice-cream just like it should be made, using only the best of all ingredients that go into its manufacture. The populartity of Logan I c e Cream is so rapidly growing that the firm is running full capacity a great percent of the year and over-capacity thruout the summer months. The success of this company is remarkable and the steady growth of their products is a matter of general comment everywhere ice-cream is used. Much credit must be given the very capable and hard-working manager, Merrit Wonn, for it was through his effort that this ice-cream is so popular, so healthful and is well distributed. The Logan Ice Cream Company uses only pure ingredients in the manufacture of their ice-cream; this being fully substantiated by the state inspectors who make regular trips of inspection as a matter of duty, but who have never failed to place upon Logan Ice Cream their stamp of entire approval. Cream of finest and best kind, granualted sugar, highest- grade syrups, flavoring extracts, etc form the kind of ice-cream you receive when you buy Logan Ice Cream, and it is manufactured under conditions that are entirely sanitary, unexcelled in scope and efficiency. They ship to all the cities around this locality, great quantities of this quality ice-cream, maintaining truck routes throughout the year and they are adding friends and customers all the time through the policy of giving the best to the customers at all times. Their popularity and large clientel of satisfied patrons is due to the fact that people have confidence in Logan Ice Cream and are purely satisfied with its purity and general excellence when served in their homes or at the soda fountains. It is one of Logan's best indrustries, and is one that every citizen of the city is justly proud of. The Democrat-Sentinel is among those who are glad to bespeak for this fine company and its mangement ever increasing success and continued co-operation both at home and in the surrounding territory.
The Pure Ice and Storage Company is starting on its second years' business this season. Last year's business was very good, but they anticipate a much bigger business this year and are making preparations to take care of their ever-increasing patronage in a very courteous and genuine manner. When a new business venture gains so much popularity in so short a time and builds up a cliental of sound friends who are their constant and satisfied patrons at all times, then, we must say that there is some thing that is very worth while that they are selling to attract and hold all these people. The truth is, so we understand it, that Logan people are getting the purest, best and-most desirable ice obtainable any place in the valley and are paying less for it. Certainly that is a thing to consider and of course it does alot toward building up such a fine and large list of patrons. This 4)l|nt is under very-capable management, Mr. Frank Tipton being in charge; and he is everlastingly working day and night, to put Pure Ice and Storage ice into every home in the city. The business is founded on the sound basis of giving to their customers the very best ice that can be produced in a modern and up-to-date plant, deliver that ice to people of Logan at the most reasonable price possible, taking into consideration the high quality of the product. This company does not produce cheap ice, but they do sell it at rock-bottom prices, which means a great saving to the people of this community. With the summer season coming on, the time of the year when every one has need of ice, this company is enlarging their capacity, their delivery system, their corps of experienced ice-makers a n d are making a strong drive for new patrons. They need not worry about the old patrons of last year, for they are all going to use the same kind of ice that gave them so much satisfaction last season, again this year. The colors of the Pure Ice and Storage Ice Cards are red numbers on white cardboard and if you do not happen to have one of these cards in your home, just call Number 60 and a card will be left at your door.

The McGovern Shoe Company is a very well known and very much appreciated manufacturing establishment in our city.Indeed, they are worthy of very honorable mention in this Booster Edition and we regret that every resident of Logan, is not as appreciative of this plant and what they are doing for Logan, as we are. However, we'll venture the assertion that there are none that know of this company, that are not very much appreciative of it and hope that we may have more of the same kind of manufacturing establishments in Logan. They have only recently branched out their plant and now have another shoe factory at Nelsonville, where they are working every day in the week, except Sunday, the same as they are doing in Logan. About two years ago this company built a large addition to their Logan plant so that it practically doubled their capacity; now with the Nelsonville plant, it shows what great strides this very popular firm is making. Last year's orders far exceeded the year before and the way they are starting out for 1925, it looks like another addition to the Logan plant will be necessary in order to take care of the demand for McGovern Shoes. this plant is devoted to the manufacture of Flexible Shoes for women and children and a force of upwards of one hundred girls and a large number of men are employed at the plant, which has been operated for a great many years without the loss of any working days to those employed. the company has made a feature of establishing excellent working conditions for their employees, and the additional feature of remunerative employment in cogenial surroundings, makes this plant of wonderful value to the community in an entirety. The company has all the modern safety equipment and everything about the plant is operated upon a modern scienticific basis.

It is truly surprisingmto those who visit the fine store conducted in Logan by the E.D.

With these fine spring days and when everyone, who has any means of locomotive travel whatsoever, are out enjoying the fresh air, we all notice the other fellows automobile; and it has been our observation that there are more and more new cars and newly-painted ones than ever before. A few years ago those that would have their cars refinished were few, the reason being that it required them to do without their car six or eight weeks; that they were required to pay a very large price for the work and then after they did get their car it looked bright and new only a short time. All these difficulties have been overcome by Mon Cook in his up-to-date paint shop, 312 North Walnut street, phone 1673. With this famous spraying machine which puts on that finish which looks newer and brighter after each washing, and which will with stand all weather conditions, called "lacquer" finish this fine work is accompplished. By this new process you are only inconvenienced a few days with your car in the shop, the cost is less and the finish, this fine work is accom- the old way. Mon is spending two days this week in Columbus at a demostration, learning more about the new process of finishing cars. it is certainly your duty to see him and learn about this wonderful finish before you have your car refinished.
