COLLARS ARE UP IX PRICE;
JIAi'BE ITS THE WAR.
Frayed collars at one tlmo might havo
been a tiling of scorn and to bo cast
aside as of no consequence, but when
they aro quoted three for fifty conts,
as today, thoy bocouto an asset and in
stead of bolng worn by thoso of low
ploblan birth and gcntloinen of liter
ary proclivities thoy become quite tho
thing for tho boys along tho Rlalto.
Tho alibi offered for selling ono for 20
cents, two for 35 or "throo for a half"
Is that tho increased cost of making a
dozen collars Is so much higher than
formerly that oven tlio raise In price
to tho consuntor will not net tho man
ufacturer nearly as much as when tho
old prices prevailed. All men's furn
ishings stores wera notified of a raise
in wholesale prices and say thoy are
compelled to act accordingly.
And it Is not only collars that havo
taken the Jump). It applies ito all
kinds of cottons, yarns and woolen
morchandiso. Wo learn on good au
thority that men's wool suits will ad
vanco from $25 to $40 and oven $50,
men's overcoats from $25 to $40, wool
underwear from $3.50 to $5 and $G.
Tlio country's wool dollclt and tho ex
traordinary demand for materials In
fitting tho U. S. government troops
havo caused an abnorntal condition.
It behooves the thinking .man and
woman to seriously consider tho situa
tion and from a point of economy to
make provisions to avoid such a con
tingency. Tlio announcement of tho
woll kown stock of men's and boys
clothing of J. B. McDonald, "Tho
Homo of Good Clothes", which is now
bolng closed out in a gigantic quitting
business salo by tho T. K. Kelly Mor
chandiso Corporation of Minneapolis,
comes right nt tho opportuno tlmo.
Tho groat attondanco at this salo Is
causing tho merchandise to disappear
and it is safo to say that North Platto
has novor witnessed greater buying
enthusiasm, Wo aro informed by Mr.
McDonald Just boforo going to press
that tho ontlro stock In trado is bo
lng thrown out for public, salo at tre
mendous savings , and by tho way-collars
with him aro 2 for 25 cents as
long as his proaent stock lasts.
May Draft Alrplano Men
In compliance with .tile- need of tho
country aviators and signal servlco
men it is probable that some means
will havo to bo found to got thorn. To
win tho world war the United States
will havo to send innumerable alr
'planes Into tho German linos 'and
eocuro supremacy of Uio air.
It has been suggested that another
draft be mado, this timo to fill thoso
ranks. Tho draft would probably havof
to bo made for 100,000 of tho best men
of tho country.
