The secret of their immense business is in haying what the people want at prices to suit them and in their not hiding their light under a bushel. While Mrs.

F. P. Starrett was visiting in Iowa her sister's child was taken ill with diphtheria, and little Claude, their youngest child, was exposed. He became sick there, but grew better, and supposing that he had recovered, Mrs. Starrett returned home with the children.

He grew worse though on the road and upon arriving home doctors were at once summoned who pronounced it a case of diphtheria. At present writing he is not dangerously ill and is improving. Only one more case has developed so far. Ralph, the next oldest little boy, i taken in the same way yesterday.
