The story of the wearing of your hirthatone
bringing good luck is such a pretty story that
it has come down through the ages gathering con
fidence and conviction from ench ,ycar.
Whether you arc superstitious or not, you will
not deny that possession of n diamond April's
birthstonc is good fortune, and the wearing
of it brings pleasure and happiness.
Step Into Clinton's today and sec the many
magnificent diamond rings, brooches and pendants.
And port of the good luck is the prices at which
you can buy the finest diamonds at Clinton's.

tho controlling consideration with

It my official and patriotic duty to
stand firmly for Its successful prosecution.
