You Can Wear These Reduced
Blouses Now or in the Spring!
Because many of them are developed of beautiful lacy
and sheer materials. Some are designed to fall over the
skirt while others tuck in. And even though there are
very few Blouses of a kind you are sure to find modes
that will fit you perfectly, for all sizes are included in this
remarkable sale. But the very fact that prices are way
down and the sizes broken means that best bargains will
go to the early choosers.

Among the laws which the Union
will recommend for changes will be
the automobile license law which
gives to 6tate roads 70 per cent of
the license fees. They propose to
have 75 per cent of this money re
main in the county which from it
is collected and give the remainder
to the state road fund.
This change in the pre-sent law
will be backed by all the Unions in
the state. In addition to this they
will recommend that land tax be
spent in the precincts from which
it is collected, thus doing away with
the Bo-called commissioners fund,
whereby money may be transferred
to another precinct at the will of the
board of commissioners.
