The St. Mary's Guild, of the St
Luke's Church, held their regular
meeting at the beautiful Gering
home yesterday afternoon, at which
time they were most royally enter
tained by Miss Barbara Gering, who,
has been one of the leaders of this
excellent organization for the past
several years. The meetings at the
Gering home are always looked for
ward to by all the members of the
Guild, and th? absence of any mem
ber is always a disappointment to
Miss Gering and that unfortunate
member also. The usual business of
the Guild was transacted in the
regular form, with the flection of
the annual bazaar presidents for the
coming year, the apron department
being placed in the care of Miss
Dora Fricke. and the fancy work
being placed in charge of Mrs. 11.
A. nates. I lie past year was a
very successful one for the St
.Mary s Guild, and they deserve a
great deal of credit for the inter
ests and benefits they have taken
and been to the church. The usual
line of excellent refreshments for
the afternoon had been prepared by
Miss Gering. and it was quite a
treat to all the ladies present.

were not very bad, but when we
saw him stepping high, we wond

blindness, but could not believe it.
Just then he turned around and we
caught a happy expression on his
face, and glancing up he caught the
eye of the reporter, and said "I will
tell you". And so he did, he said
it was a girl, and that both the little
Miss, and her mother Mrs. Sherman
Taylor, formerly Miss Gladys Mc-
Maken, were both doing well. but

Here is the truth regarding the Cotton Goods
situation as it will exist this coming season this information appearing in the
leading dry goods trade paper:
"The demand for American cotton during the coming year is likely to be
unprecedented. Owing to drouth and a decrease in acreage, the Indian cotton crop
is the smallest in 16 years, falling about 2,000,000 bales short of normal. This
shortage will have to be made up by America."
When one takes into consideration the world shortage of cotton goods, it
is easy to understand why prices will be high and merchandise scarce. Our sale
is giving you the benefit of merchandise bought many months ago at prices much
below today's level.
