Pathetic Not Humorous
Hearts attuned to sympathy and
humanity felt tho pathos of - a seen
offered in front of tho postoffice last
Friday afternoon in tho vision of an
elderly man sleeping the stupor of quite
helpless inebriety the while numerous
priest and levites passed or paused in
unconcern or derision and laughter
A minion of the law finally aroused the
man and took him to a less public place

Common Sense Giving
This Christmas will no doubt be cele
brated in quite a sensible way by the
majority of givers who will find their
gifts more appreciated if consisting of
furs gloves scarfs mittens handker
chiefs cloaks shawls skirts and such
items as fill a use in addition to possess
ing beauty No better place to secure
the right thing can be mentioned than

scription January ist 1908
The Tribune will remain at one dollar a year
Tne only difference readers of the paper will discover
after January ist 1908 will be a determination to improve

Every Kind of Gifts Here
Our assortment provides an almost
limitless selection of desirable gifts
To attempt a description of the various
lines would be doing them an injustice
and we prefere to have you see them
rather than to try to tell about them
Next to the magnificence of our as
sortment the chief characteristic of our
stock is its universal high quality
Whether the price of a gift be high or
low its quality decides its acceptability
and we make you safe in this regard
In all your Christmas thinking keep
this thought uppermost buy early
there is every possible disadvantage in
putting off the choosing of gifts until
you have to pick from a depleted stock
in a crowded store and amid all the
bustle and confusion that attends the
last few days before Christmas The
goods that would please you most are
here now but a little later may be sold
Every day will count from this on
every day things you would have liked
best will be leaving the store Dont
delay seeing them Come at once and
as often thereafter as you can
