It long ago seemed ns though
shoes could never be better and
never be cheaper, but they are
better now and cheaper now than
they ever were before. The great
every day favorite is our men’s
and ladies’ shoe. It is as much a
boon to the pocketbo’ok as it is to
the feet. It won’t wear you out
to wear it out. You don’t need to
take care of it; it takes care of
itself. It will give you solid com
fort for the simple reason that a
better shoe for knockabout pur
poses has never been produced.
If prices never appealed to you
before, the price of this shoe will,
fbr it costs only $2.50. It will
look nicer and wear longer than
any shoe on^earth.

The Keystone Watch
Case Co. of Philadelphia,
the largest watch case manufactur
ing concern in the world, is now
putting upon the Jas. Boss Filled

pulled off the watch.
It is a sure protection against the
pickpocket and the many accidents
that befall watches fitted with the
old-style bow', which is simply held
in by friction and can be twisted off
with the fingers. It is called the
cases bearing their trade mark— ^0^

Hals and bonnets for the spring are
things of beauty. Of course there are
a few startling and “outre" things for
those who demand them; but conserva
tive women of quiet and refined taste
can all be suited. There is the small!
turban of fancy straw trimmed with
velvet folds, which some women like
so much for shopping and traveling;
and close little capotes of fancy straws
and chip. Strings are the color of the
trimming, and full two inches wide.
All kinds of buds and berries are more
used than flowers. Hats have wide
brims and low crowns, are bent and
pinched into many shapes, and trimmed
in front, at the side, or back, as is most
becoming. The severe, but to some
faces most coquetish, Empire poke
comes in fine, colored chip, and is
trimmed with velvet ribbon in severe
lines, and erect ostrich feathers. —From

The first month of school in Har

Several hours were lost by tardiness
which is a great disadvantage to the

in print the names of those that were
not tardy duriug the month, and want
the pleasure of having the balance
published next month; they were Floyd,

more vigorous work will be performed.
