JLmong the best of the methods that used to determine the upper limit ! the blanket of air about the earth called tbe "twilight method." rwllight has been defined as the time after sunset when day seems to ;be continued into the night because of .-he sunlight that still shines upon the topper air. It has been determined that tWi- lght lasts until the sun is about eighteen degrees below the horizon. and with this as a known value and the radius of the earth given as 4,000 relies, it Is not difficult to solve, by the methods of trigonometry, n right tri- t[le that gives 48 miles as the height the air still dense enough tO reflect twilight rays of the sun after it et.

At this leading es- tablishment in Ortonville you will find Victrola and Edison phonographs and records. EASY PAYMENTS and gifts that last. Their motto is to buy only the best and sell at a price con- sistent with a fair margin of profit. This motto has been proved a suc- cess by the large patronage this store now has. The letters of the owner's name misplaced spell a useful house- hold article. What article? How long has this man been in this business here? What is the telephone num- ber ? (5) The Editor of the "Who's Who" columns had been in Ortonville only a few hours when he heard of the hard- ware store where you meet all so]s of people. The clerks in this firm give all customers who come in a hearty and courteous welcome. The phone number has 2 figures which when ad- ded together give a total of 8. We found upon investigation that this is a modern, up-to-date store, wide awake and flourishing. The owner stands among Ortonville's worthy citizensl and has won the highest respect from I all his acquaintances, due to his well ordered life. He is among your best business men--a man with a sunny disposition who is an open book which all might read and the writer is fear- less in saying this in regard to the hardware, let alone the proprietor. He says that he has the best brand of knives on the market. Who is the proprietor? What is his telephone number? What brand of pocket knives does he handle ? (6) Where is one of the livest places in Ortonville after supper Believe me, there is something doing here all the time. They have pocket and car- ome billard tables, bowling alleys, soft drinks, confectionery and cigars, all the best money can buy. It is a busi- sess built and maintained by a group of satisfied customers and boosters-- a place to meet your friends.. It has been and will be conducted along hon- orable reciprocating lines. The own- ers name has 6 letters and his initials are the same forward as backward. Who is he? Who is the manager? What special attraction have the&- at present ? (7) The meat, fish, oysters and deli- cacies you eat should be selected with the greatest care. Every bit that leaves this market with the white front on Main street is fresh. The writer can vouch for its purity, fresh- ness and tenderness. Delicious hams and bacon, good cuts of beef, most de- licious chops, are a few of the things this shop would like you to try. They handle Swift's Premium and Armour's Veribest brands. They always have a fresh supply of Swift's Oleomargar, garine, the substitute that is better than the real thing. They cut the H. C. L. by giving you real value for your money. To write up the men or real development would be incomplete without extending reference to this market that sells meat that makes your mouth water. Their telephone number is 19 backward. What mar- ket is this ? Who are the proprietors ? (8) Many a woman if you could hear her express her admiration for the fine appearance of her hams would easily convince you who the reliable furniture dealer of Ortonville is. If you wish to be highly pleased in tls line this is the Mecca for good selec- tions of the latest moment. Every ar- ticle necessary for the appearance and comfort of the modern home and are to be found here. Rrunswt.ck pronographs --a complete line of rugs and carpets, beds, mattresses etc. The offerings compete with those of the larger cities in every way except in price, which we find lower here. The proprietor of this enterpriseing store has 3 initials but only two letters. He is counted among the highly respected, progres- sive citizens of Ortonville. The firm also does funeral directing in keeping with their other hgh standards. Who is the proprietor.'@ What bed springs does he handle ? When did he start in business ? What is his slogan? (9) The meat famous chef could prepare no more appetizing dishes than you will have served to you at the Cafe where the name has two capital K's in it. Service and hos- pitality must be their slogan, judging from their volume of business and the agrdeable appearance of all the em- ployees. ihey have only home made pastries and the're Some Bakers. In short, folks, this is the place to go to satisfy that vacant feel- ing at the right price. Ti]ey serve anything that a person could desire. Cleanliness and sanitation are the two words upon which these two ,.men have built their flourishing business. They say that they have the only fountain in Ortonville that is open all winter--- a complete line of cigars, tobaccos, and confectionery, and they are the masters of candy making as well as] baking. What cafe is this? What is the chef's name. Who is the head waiter ? What brand of coltee do they use. (10) This paragraph is about the man behind the cmnera but not behind the times. Now, as one passes down main street and sees the large and reputable business firms you cannot help but feel proud that you live in so prog'essive a community, especial- ly where this studio where the follow- ing letters rearranged will spell the proprietors name. KREIV. Each busi- ness in its line is highly representa- tive of standing in the business world. In this case we wish to speak of the studio owned and operated by per- sons who do photographic work of the better class and who have one of the best equipped studios, the most complete and artistic stock in Western Minnesota.. The owner is one of the leading citizens in Orton- ville and if we know anyone more pop- ular, we would surely tell you. What is the proprietor's name? Have you ever seen the inside of the studio ? (11) It was God who said "Let there be light," and there is a man in Ortonville who is helping out the di- vine injunction by doing all the wir- ing in sight. And he's an expert at it. He also handles a complete ;ine of Hot Point electrical heating de- vices, irons, toasters, grills, curling irons, etc,. What is more convenient than snapping on a switch and Be- hold! it's hot! This man we find is an expert at all repair work as well as wiring. He specializes on Electrical repairs and ATTENTION repairing automobile side curtains. The writer is convinced that he is good after sear ing the dexterity with which he does this work. His name begins with W. He is located on Main street near the postoffice. Who is he? How many figures are there in his telephone num- ber ? (12) It is a source of personal sat- isfaction to the writer to write about this company which tells Pennsyl- vania nd U. S. Tires, not ony be- cause they sell such good tires, but, because the manager is just as popu- lar as the tires and Roe, Peerless, and Paige cars that he sells. The man- ager is not only a fine person, but al- so an alert business man and his idea is to always make the place home- like, when you do business with him, and so far he has been successful. He is known by many to be a booster, and we can depend on him to give Or- tonville a boost at every opportunity. Personally, we know him so well we call him, A1. We know of no one we would more highly recommend to look after any of your wants in the auto- mobile line. Where is his garage? What is his name. What is the gar- age name ? (13) It is the clothes that make the man, if you don't believe it, just try going down the street without any. This number introduces a store that has had a hand in making a lot of good looking men in and about the city. The proprietor of this store has been catering to the good dressers of the city and surrounding country for several years. He is a complete out- fitter of men and boys, a manager with dodern methods. He fits you out from head to foot and all stations between, with Bostonian Shoes, Man- hattan shirts and Fried hats. What is the firm nme? Who is the pro- prietor ? What special brand of cloth- ing does he handle ? (14) It is a long way from the days of the old tin-type to modern photo- graphy, yet it is only a few short years. There are few professions that have taken the strides during the past quarter century, that photography has. And all the latest and best meth- ods are found at this studio, where the managers name has six letters, inculding two N's. The studio name has four letters, including two E's. The proprietor has everything of merit in his line---and, altho very busy, is, we and very agreeable and enthusias- tic about his work. He people are realizing that solve the big question of ents and are taking advantage realizations. He will take ture any time of day or night, can surely let him "shoot" time, even the you are busy. is the owner's name? What this ? (15) Here is a place in that is easily the equal of that the large cities have this line--We refer to the caters only to Ladies and writer upon entering this shop for once in his life that he Or, every hand we behold care ar;icles of adornment for :hats vari 'and multicolored; i sweaters, toilet articles---in erything that appeals to the desire for beauty.

What is conceded to be the neat- est and best arranged jewelry store in Western Minnesota is located in 0r- tonviIle. The stock consists of the choicest articles on the market in its line and is displayed in a most advan- tageous manner. At this leading es- tablishment in Ortonville you will find Victrola and Edison phonographs and records. EASY PAYMENTS and gifts that last. Their motto is to buy only the best and sell at a price con- sistent with a fair margin of profit. This motto has been proved a suc- cess by the large patronage this store now has. The letters of the owner's name misplaced spell a useful house- hold article. What article? How long has this man been in this business here? What is the telephone num- ber ? (5) The Editor of the "Who's Who" columns had been in Ortonville only a few hours when he heard of the hard- ware store where you meet all so]s of people. The clerks in this firm give all customers who come in a hearty and courteous welcome. The phone number has 2 figures which when ad- ded together give a total of 8. We found upon investigation that this is a modern, up-to-date store, wide awake and flourishing. The owner stands among Ortonville's worthy citizensl and has won the highest respect from I all his acquaintances, due to his well ordered life. He is among your best business men--a man with a sunny disposition who is an open book which all might read and the writer is fear- less in saying this in regard to the hardware, let alone the proprietor. He says that he has the best brand of knives on the market. Who is the proprietor? What is his telephone number? What brand of pocket knives does he handle ? (6) Where is one of the livest places in Ortonville after supper Believe me, there is something doing here all the time. They have pocket and car- ome billard tables, bowling alleys, soft drinks, confectionery and cigars, all the best money can buy. It is a busi- sess built and maintained by a group of satisfied customers and boosters-- a place to meet your friends.. It has been and will be conducted along hon- orable reciprocating lines. The own- ers name has 6 letters and his initials are the same forward as backward. Who is he? Who is the manager? What special attraction have the&- at present ? (7) The meat, fish, oysters and deli- cacies you eat should be selected with the greatest care. Every bit that leaves this market with the white front on Main street is fresh. The writer can vouch for its purity, fresh- ness and tenderness. Delicious hams and bacon, good cuts of beef, most de- licious chops, are a few of the things this shop would like you to try. They handle Swift's Premium and Armour's Veribest brands. They always have a fresh supply of Swift's Oleomargar, garine, the substitute that is better than the real thing. They cut the H. C. L. by giving you real value for your money. To write up the men or real development would be incomplete without extending reference to this market that sells meat that makes your mouth water. Their telephone number is 19 backward. What mar- ket is this ? Who are the proprietors ? (8) Many a woman if you could hear her express her admiration for the fine appearance of her hams would easily convince you who the reliable furniture dealer of Ortonville is. If you wish to be highly pleased in tls line this is the Mecca for good selec- tions of the latest moment. Every ar- ticle necessary for the appearance and comfort of the modern home and are to be found here. Rrunswt.ck pronographs --a complete line of rugs and carpets, beds, mattresses etc. The offerings compete with those of the larger cities in every way except in price, which we find lower here. The proprietor of this enterpriseing store has 3 initials but only two letters. He is counted among the highly respected, progres- sive citizens of Ortonville. The firm also does funeral directing in keeping with their other hgh standards. Who is the proprietor.'@ What bed springs does he handle ? When did he start in business ? What is his slogan? (9) The meat famous chef could prepare no more appetizing dishes than you will have served to you at the Cafe where the name has two capital K's in it. Service and hos- pitality must be their slogan, judging from their volume of business and the agrdeable appearance of all the em- ployees. ihey have only home made pastries and the're Some Bakers. In short, folks, this is the place to go to satisfy that vacant feel- ing at the right price. Ti]ey serve anything that a person could desire. Cleanliness and sanitation are the two words upon which these two ,.men have built their flourishing business. They say that they have the only fountain in Ortonville that is open all winter--- a complete line of cigars, tobaccos, and confectionery, and they are the masters of candy making as well as] baking. What cafe is this? What is the chef's name. Who is the head waiter ? What brand of coltee do they use. (10) This paragraph is about the man behind the cmnera but not behind the times. Now, as one passes down main street and sees the large and reputable business firms you cannot help but feel proud that you live in so prog'essive a community, especial- ly where this studio where the follow- ing letters rearranged will spell the proprietors name. KREIV. Each busi- ness in its line is highly representa- tive of standing in the business world. In this case we wish to speak of the studio owned and operated by per- sons who do photographic work of the better class and who have one of the best equipped studios, the most complete and artistic stock in Western Minnesota.. The owner is one of the leading citizens in Orton- ville and if we know anyone more pop- ular, we would surely tell you. What is the proprietor's name? Have you ever seen the inside of the studio ? (11) It was God who said "Let there be light," and there is a man in Ortonville who is helping out the di- vine injunction by doing all the wir- ing in sight. And he's an expert at it. He also handles a complete ;ine of Hot Point electrical heating de- vices, irons, toasters, grills, curling irons, etc,. What is more convenient than snapping on a switch and Be- hold! it's hot! This man we find is an expert at all repair work as well as wiring. He specializes on Electrical repairs and ATTENTION repairing automobile side curtains. The writer is convinced that he is good after sear ing the dexterity with which he does this work. His name begins with W. He is located on Main street near the postoffice. Who is he? How many figures are there in his telephone num- ber ? (12) It is a source of personal sat- isfaction to the writer to write about this company which tells Pennsyl- vania nd U. S. Tires, not ony be- cause they sell such good tires, but, because the manager is just as popu- lar as the tires and Roe, Peerless, and Paige cars that he sells. The man- ager is not only a fine person, but al- so an alert business man and his idea is to always make the place home- like, when you do business with him, and so far he has been successful. He is known by many to be a booster, and we can depend on him to give Or- tonville a boost at every opportunity. Personally, we know him so well we call him, A1. We know of no one we would more highly recommend to look after any of your wants in the auto- mobile line. Where is his garage? What is his name. What is the gar- age name ? (13) It is the clothes that make the man, if you don't believe it, just try going down the street without any. This number introduces a store that has had a hand in making a lot of good looking men in and about the city. The proprietor of this store has been catering to the good dressers of the city and surrounding country for several years. He is a complete out- fitter of men and boys, a manager with dodern methods. He fits you out from head to foot and all stations between, with Bostonian Shoes, Man- hattan shirts and Fried hats. What is the firm nme? Who is the pro- prietor ? What special brand of cloth- ing does he handle ? (14) It is a long way from the days of the old tin-type to modern photo- graphy, yet it is only a few short years. There are few professions that have taken the strides during the past quarter century, that photography has. And all the latest and best meth- ods are found at this studio, where the managers name has six letters, inculding two N's. The studio name has four letters, including two E's. The proprietor has everything of merit in his line---and, altho very busy, is, we and very agreeable and enthusias- tic about his work. He people are realizing that solve the big question of ents and are taking advantage realizations. He will take ture any time of day or night, can surely let him "shoot" time, even the you are busy. is the owner's name? What this ? (15) Here is a place in that is easily the equal of that the large cities have this line--We refer to the caters only to Ladies and writer upon entering this shop for once in his life that he Or, every hand we behold care ar;icles of adornment for :hats vari 'and multicolored; i sweaters, toilet articles---in erything that appeals to the desire for beauty.

Their motto is to buy only the best and sell at a price con- sistent with a fair margin of profit. This motto has been proved a suc- cess by the large patronage this store now has. The letters of the owner's name misplaced spell a useful house- hold article. What article? How long has this man been in this business here? What is the telephone num- ber ? (5) The Editor of the "Who's Who" columns had been in Ortonville only a few hours when he heard of the hard- ware store where you meet all so]s of people. The clerks in this firm give all customers who come in a hearty and courteous welcome. The phone number has 2 figures which when ad- ded together give a total of 8. We found upon investigation that this is a modern, up-to-date store, wide awake and flourishing. The owner stands among Ortonville's worthy citizensl and has won the highest respect from I all his acquaintances, due to his well ordered life. He is among your best business men--a man with a sunny disposition who is an open book which all might read and the writer is fear- less in saying this in regard to the hardware, let alone the proprietor. He says that he has the best brand of knives on the market. Who is the proprietor? What is his telephone number? What brand of pocket knives does he handle ? (6) Where is one of the livest places in Ortonville after supper Believe me, there is something doing here all the time. They have pocket and car- ome billard tables, bowling alleys, soft drinks, confectionery and cigars, all the best money can buy. It is a busi- sess built and maintained by a group of satisfied customers and boosters-- a place to meet your friends.. It has been and will be conducted along hon- orable reciprocating lines. The own- ers name has 6 letters and his initials are the same forward as backward. Who is he? Who is the manager? What special attraction have the&- at present ? (7) The meat, fish, oysters and deli- cacies you eat should be selected with the greatest care. Every bit that leaves this market with the white front on Main street is fresh. The writer can vouch for its purity, fresh- ness and tenderness. Delicious hams and bacon, good cuts of beef, most de- licious chops, are a few of the things this shop would like you to try. They handle Swift's Premium and Armour's Veribest brands. They always have a fresh supply of Swift's Oleomargar, garine, the substitute that is better than the real thing. They cut the H. C. L. by giving you real value for your money. To write up the men or real development would be incomplete without extending reference to this market that sells meat that makes your mouth water. Their telephone number is 19 backward. What mar- ket is this ? Who are the proprietors ?

The firm also does funeral directing in keeping with their other hgh standards. Who is the proprietor.'@ What bed springs does he handle ? When did he start in business ? What is his slogan? (9) The meat famous chef could prepare no more appetizing dishes than you will have served to you at the Cafe where the name has two capital K's in it. Service and hos- pitality must be their slogan, judging from their volume of business and the agrdeable appearance of all the em- ployees. ihey have only home made pastries and the're Some Bakers.

They say that they have the only fountain in Ortonville that is open all winter--- a complete line of cigars, tobaccos, and confectionery, and they are the masters of candy making as well as] baking. What cafe is this? What is the chef's name. Who is the head waiter ? What brand of coltee do they use. (10) This paragraph is about the man behind the cmnera but not behind the times. Now, as one passes down main street and sees the large and reputable business firms you cannot help but feel proud that you live in so prog'essive a community, especial- ly where this studio where the follow- ing letters rearranged will spell the proprietors name. KREIV. Each busi- ness in its line is highly representa- tive of standing in the business world. In this case we wish to speak of the studio owned and operated by per- sons who do photographic work of the better class and who have one of the best equipped studios, the most complete and artistic stock in Western Minnesota.. The owner is one of the leading citizens in Orton- ville and if we know anyone more pop- ular, we would surely tell you. What is the proprietor's name? Have you ever seen the inside of the studio ? (11) It was God who said "Let there be light," and there is a man in Ortonville who is helping out the di- vine injunction by doing all the wir- ing in sight. And he's an expert at it. He also handles a complete ;ine of Hot Point electrical heating de- vices, irons, toasters, grills, curling irons, etc,. What is more convenient than snapping on a switch and Be- hold! it's hot! This man we find is an expert at all repair work as well as wiring. He specializes on Electrical repairs and ATTENTION repairing automobile side curtains. The writer is convinced that he is good after sear ing the dexterity with which he does this work. His name begins with W. He is located on Main street near the postoffice. Who is he? How many figures are there in his telephone num- ber ? (12) It is a source of personal sat- isfaction to the writer to write about this company which tells Pennsyl- vania nd U. S. Tires, not ony be- cause they sell such good tires, but, because the manager is just as popu- lar as the tires and Roe, Peerless, and Paige cars that he sells. The man- ager is not only a fine person, but al- so an alert business man and his idea is to always make the place home- like, when you do business with him, and so far he has been successful. He is known by many to be a booster, and we can depend on him to give Or- tonville a boost at every opportunity. Personally, we know him so well we call him, A1. We know of no one we would more highly recommend to look after any of your wants in the auto- mobile line. Where is his garage? What is his name. What is the gar- age name ? (13) It is the clothes that make the man, if you don't believe it, just try going down the street without any. This number introduces a store that has had a hand in making a lot of good looking men in and about the city.

He fits you out from head to foot and all stations between, with Bostonian Shoes, Man- hattan shirts and Fried hats. What is the firm nme? Who is the pro- prietor ? What special brand of cloth- ing does he handle ? (14) It is a long way from the days of the old tin-type to modern photo- graphy, yet it is only a few short years. There are few professions that have taken the strides during the past quarter century, that photography has. And all the latest and best meth- ods are found at this studio, where the managers name has six letters, inculding two N's. The studio name has four letters, including two E's. The proprietor has everything of merit in his line---and, altho very busy, is, we and very agreeable and enthusias- tic about his work. He people are realizing that solve the big question of ents and are taking advantage realizations. He will take ture any time of day or night, can surely let him "shoot" time, even the you are busy. is the owner's name? What this ?
