Good Taste and Good Judgment
THATS what we employ and exercise when we select Men's Clothing and then our many years of experience in he clothing business and our knowledge of what
constitutes good clothing are powerful factors in maintaining the prest. ge of this great clothing organ ization jtnd adding hundreds of new names each season
to our already great list of patrons. The man who buys his clothes here is as stylishly dressed as he who paj i several ' times as much for custom tailors' gar
ments. Lavish expenditures for clothing is surely a thing of the past it's unnecessary. Armstrong CI othiir particularly the best qualities is on a par with
the product of the most skilled merchant tailor. It possesses those little knacks and touches which gives to a garmeV an air of character and individuality. t
These prices command clothing fit for the ward
robe of the most exacting dresser. Both Suits and
The range of Suits and Overcoats at each of these
prices is very large. The Suits may be had in sin
gle and double breasted styles. They are made from
strictly all wool Cheviots, Thibets, Tweeds and
Worsteds and may be had in black, blue and fancy
effects. All of the latest designs.
The Overcoats come in all wool Friezes, Vicunas,
Melton and Scotch effects in black, gray, brown,
blue and fancy effects. They are cut in the popular
lengths, 46, 48, 50 and 52 inches ; form fitting, loose
or belt in back.
Overcoats are made from the finest domestic and
: foreign woolens, such as high class tailors employ
I in their best productions. The tailoring and trim
! mings are of the best class, while the fit of every
; garment is positively unbetterable. Men seeking
1 really fine clothing need not go farther than these
lines. Among the Overcoats you will find the very
popular Surtout besides all other styles. ' 7 ' . .

Douglas of Massachusetts Knows How to
Get the Votes.
These who have watched Mr. Doug
las in his recent campaign say he is
'1 rcat politician. A World reporter
v.ho observed him at h!s headquarters
last Wednesday was strut::; with ..ie
easy way in which this plain man of
business adapted himself to politics.
Almcst every two minutes some of his
workers, wearing the very evident
stamp of the politician, came in to con
gratulate him. Instantly the governor
elect wr.j up to meet them with a hear
ty handshake and "Why, h-e-l-l-o, Jim!
Well, it was all right, wasn't it? You
did line. You boys v.-ce great. I am
awfully glad to see :Jo, you are to
be congratulated- yourself."
All day Wednesday the political
workers filled his improvised campaign
headquarters in the Old 3outh building
on Washington street, and Mr. Doug
las, who has devoted all his life to the
shoe business, mingled with them witn
his hearty laugh, and with as great
freedom as though politics had been
his calling all his life.
Down in Brockton, nineteen miles
from Boston, where the Dcuglas shoe
factories are, Mr. Douglas is unques
tionably the idol of the people. He has
a great army of employes in his several
factories there. He is known from one
end of the state to the other as the
ideal employer. What the people of
the town like about him is that he is
a plain, sincere, unostentatious man
who goes about the street mingling
with the people, without ever givin;;
in his manner the slightest suggestion
ol' the great, success he has won. ThS
newsboys and bootblacks all know him.
The conductors on the accommodation
trains that run from Boslon to Brock
ton all know him, and he always gives
them a hearty handshake. All the
cabmen and truck drivers are his per
sonal friends, and though Brockton is
a republican town far and away, ue
carried is Tuesday by a good vote.
There 'is no question that Mr. Doug
las" election is the most remarkable
thing that ever happened in Masst
chusetts politics. Many explanations
are offered for it. .Probably the most
popular explanation is that the labor
vote did it. Though this explanation
covers a great part of the phenomenon
it does not explain it all. Throughout
the state the labor unions were pretty
generally united in favor of Mr. Doug
las., They liked him, and they did not
like Governor Bates, whom they
biamed for vetoing aq eight-hour taw
and an overtime bill. IThe labor unions'
tomany caaes qame out openly and in
dorsed Mr. Douglasf The socialist vote ,
also went for him.J-Boston Correspon
dence to New York World.
THE CHRISTMAS TREE.
Give the Little Folks a Merry Christmas
If a trfie can be obtained from the
woods for a' lUtle trouble, don't deny
the children a Christmas tree. In
many hemes it seems . that if each
member has a gift at Christmas time,
there really is not a cent to spare for
tree decorations, and those sold ia
the store are expensive. But as I looke 1
back on a treeless childhood I deter
mined that our children should liavo
a tree. Here are g ome things I learnel
to make from five cents worth of tis
sue paper. For several years they
were the main dependence for the tree.
Take a sheet of paper and cut pieces
four inches wide and five inches long,
fold directly through the middle the
long way, pressing the crease hard.
Now cut every one-fourth inch from
the crease to within a half inch of the
paper. Unfold and paste the ends-
the narrowest side flat over one an
other. At the top fasten baby ribbon
or cord and you have a pretty little
lantern. Umbrellas are made by tak
ing a five-inch square of paper make
a very tiny hole in the exact center,
on which put Just a suspicion of mu
cilage. Have ready for a handle u
nine by one-half strip of heavy paper
made exactly like a lamp lighter. Slip
the tiny hole over the top of the han
die and twist firmly. Twist the other
end of handle over your finger to make
a crook to hang to the tree by. By
folding the paper over the handle in
umbrella shape, and hanging up by
handle ther are very like a partly
For Taney baskets take a five-inch
square and fold through the center
from one corner to the other. Now
fold Trom the corner to make a small
triangle. Begining at top which will
be the . center . of scuare cut toward
the edge, turn and cut toward the edge
in opposite direction, repeating until
base of triangle is reached, making
the cuts one-fourth inch apart. Un
fold and lay flat on a table. Wet with
a cloth. Take a pin and lift up care
fully from the center. Hang tip to
dry ant ou have a dainty little bas
ket for the tree.,
But perhaps prettiest of all are the
chains made from the tiny pieces of
left-over paper; cut one-fourth inch
wide and four or five inches long, ac
cording to pieces left. Join the. ends
of first piece, then slip another piece
into it and loin Its ends, repeating
until your chain is 'as long as you,
want it. ,
I hope these thioss may be of use 'to
som mother. Better try them of news
paper before cutting the tisBuej pa
per, if there is just a little money to,
spend "or the tree I think candles an-1
holders give the most pleasure, and the
holders may be used several seasons.
A package of gold and silver tinsel
thread costs but little and adds won
derfully to the beauty of the plainest
tree. If tissue paper can not be had.
many pretty things can be made of
bright colored lining cambric, which
can be had for four or five cents a
yard, or of the colored papers which
come around rarcels from the stores.
What We May Look For If Things

Imagination falters when it attempts

such a pacemaker starts in the school

Millionaires' Club five years from now
when Mr. Carnegie will come swinging
jauntily into the room with his golf
clubs under his arm.
"Well, John." he will say, "I have
just added 200 acres to the Pittsburg
campus and deposited $5,000,000 in
sreei bonds as endowment to provide
gymnasium facilities." : . '
Mr. Rockefeller will rub his hands
in glee and say:
"Too late, Andrew. Very good in its
way, but antiquated. I have just
bought "Lake Michigan for the Uni

Mr. Vanderbilt will look up from his
paper and remark casually:
"I might say that the family has just
purchased all the land within two
miles of the Yale campus, and will
cover it with dormitories." .
Mr.' Vanderbilt will say this very
modestly, but with a gleam of triumph
in his eye. But "Ah!" he will exclaim,
as he returns to his paper. "Boy,
bring my check-book! Gentlemen, Mrs.
Stanford has just bought the Sierra
Nevada mountains for the school of
forestry of the Leland Stanford, Jr.,
University." i .
The three rich men will pale at thls-
'There's one thins left to do!" they
will cry in chorus. "Raisff the pro
