$7,900 a day. This is the amount, based on actual figures and very conservative estimates, of outside money received in Petaluma on the average every day in the year for eggs, poultry and baby chicks shipped away. If you have anything to sell to poultrymen and farmers and don’t get your share of that money, you can get more of it by advertising in the Petaluma Weekly Poultry Journal, which reaches most of the men who handle that money. Others are making a profit from buying space in the Journal, and you may also. This is not talk, but a statement of fact which has been demonstrated.
Big sale of dolls, French jointed and kid bodies. We bought a large sample line of dolls at a big reduction and are going to sell then at about twp-thirds the regular price.

There are also certain mental and spiritual preparations. To be intensely interested in anything is fatal to sleep; so also are the memory of a rankling failure, plan-making. Problem-solving, apprehension, shame and remorse. Passions of any kind, craving and all heats are against sleep.
One is very fortunate who has a habit of prayer for there is nothing can still the soul like purging the conscience before God, and cares, pricking annoyances, dreads and all mental tensions can be remedied in no way more satisfactorily than by letting the consciousness of God wash the soul. A sense of friendliness and peace toward the infinite is the surest medicine for sleep.
