This selling with its lower prices could hardly come at a more oppor
tune time. Yet, we give you fair warning it will only last until present Winter
garments in our stocks have been disposed of. And this should not take long,
for we've marked down the prices in every case so substantially that not one, but
several new wearables are now in easy reach of every woman who wants new
clothes which will reflect her good taste and excellent judgment.
Plain and Fur Trimmed Coats
are included in these interesting Clearance groups. Large collars of fur or
self-fabric in which you can snuggle 3rcur chin, embroidered yokes, interest
ing sleeve treatments and bloused backs are some of the reasons why we sold so
many of these coats this season. We still have a goodly number left, however,
which must be disposed of to make room for Spring shipments now on the road,
and in order to turn them into ready cash, we have made the prices way below normal. Don't be mistaken or
mislead these are all high class coats of known manufacture, the same high grade garments we havealways

OTHER HIGHLY APPRECIAT
ED GIFTS FOR GLUR ROOMS
The general spirit of friendliness
toward the'local post of the Ameri
can Ecgion in its new enterprise of
outfitting club rooms, is a thing that
strikes. deep into the hearts of the
members and strengthens their belief
that the people of the community are
very appreciative of their services at
a time when the nation was imperil
ed. Needless to say the Legion boys
are grateful to a greater extent than
words can express.
Among the past gifts mentioned in
these columns jfre two stoves, lace
curtains, a historical painting from
the Brest Red Cross canteen, the
installation of a telephone and other
During the past few days pictures
have come in from many sources, in
cluding a large framed copy of the
Constitution of the United States, a
gift of Frank Gobelman.
On Saturday Fred Wagner present
ed the post a safe which has been in
use in his private office and which
his busines has outgrown. This is
an expensive safe and will be mighty
handy for keeping the papers and
books of the organization safe from
loss by fire or theft.
M. S. Briggs also comes under the
wire well at the head of the list of
donors, with the gift of a large office
or reading table, which is in excel
lent condition and will fill a long felt
want in the club rooms.
William Baird has also announced
that he will present the post with a
fine American flag, and it is the in
tention to place a flagstaff over the
clubrooms and have Old Glory flung
to the breeze on such days and in ac
cord with the regulations prescribed
by the flag manual.
Another valuable and highly prized
gift is the stand of colors which the
ladies of the W. R. C. have announc
ed they wish to present at the next
meeting of the post and when it is
hoped to have a large number of the
members present to express their ap
preciation. This is something the
post has been needing for a long time
but never felt its finances were quite
sufficient to stand such an extensive
disbursement as this would necessi
tate. i I ll 1 1 I 1 1 I 1 I'M I ? IMfl I 1 1 "H

the fire department hastened to the
scene and a bucket brigade formid
that in a very few minutes had the
blaze coiitroled and before the ar
rival of the chemical truck the fire
was extinguished. The fire origin

shingles to ignite, but the blaze was
discovered at once hy'Mr. Despain
