NEW McCali I'atierns
Mothers Find Kiddies' Clothes
So Easy to Make the
New McCall Way
Fast growing kiddies used to keep mother's needle
busy most of the time until a quicker way .of sewing
came into practice, the "printed" pattern way.
Now with the New McCall Pattern "it's printed,"
Gingham Rompers, Chambray Dresses, children's tail
ored little Coats can be made in a jiffy. Directions for
cutting are printed on the pattern, itself. "Printed"
gives accurate measurement to a pattern so that a gar
ment can be made quickly in the right way.
For Quicker Sewing the New "Printed" Pattern

Renders Verdict For Plaintiff Aganst
Sidney and W. B. Spence in
the Sum of $3,950.66.
From Wednesday's Dally.
The case of the Bank of Commerce
of Louisville vs. Sidney and 'William
11. SDence. that occupied the atten
tion of the district court yesterday
was brought to a close last evening
at C o'clock when the jury compos
ed of A. R. Stander, C. K. Bestor;
Fred Kelinc. M. E. Bushnell. R. L.
Hoback. Henry Dehning. Fred M.
Pronty. E. P. Lutz, Watson Howard.
Fred Muenchau, Philip Born and
John Cauer, returned a verdict in
favor of the plaintiff bank in the
sum of $3,950.66, against the de
fendants. It was the contention of the plain
tiff in the case that the defendant,
Sidney Spence, had notes secured by
chattel mortgage with the bank- and
as he desired to remove to Buffalo
county to make his home it was ar
ranged that the mortgage be releas
ed with W. B. Spence appearing as
endorser of the new note ana tne
nrftnertv was released. The defen
contended that the defendant
liam, was unaware of the form of
note used and that bank was made
to appear as the purchaser of the
! note and contending there had ben
j no consideration received.
I The case will probably be taken
I tn the state supreme court by the
