How Can We Do It?
Here's the story briefly told. This order was placed some six months npr with
the manufacturer by an eastern retail house which has since discontinued business,
leaving this big lot of blue serge suits on their hands. We were the fortunate ones
approached on this deal and did not linger long in deciding to grasp the bargain op
portunity, and the same opportunity is now yours.
Regarding the Character of these Clothes
They are hand tailored throughout by one of the best manufacturers in the' United JState.
doth is the best "Oswego" serge, dyed in the wool, acid tested indigo color guaranteed full
standard weight. Bear in Mind, that we fully protect you in buying these Suits at $H).50, satis
faction and perfect fit being assured; also your getting honest $25.00 values always.
See them in Our 16th Street Windows
We want you to come Saturday. Use your cold, unbiased, unsympathetic judgment, your
knowledge and experience of the past and tell us where in that past you've ever seen such values.
Pick out your suit Saturday, even if you don't need it just now; pay a. small deposit and we will
hold it for you, and if in the meantime you find its equal or better value, we will cheerfully refund
to you the amount of your deposit. Buy them on our recommendation on our recommendation

It must be whispered that French women
themselves are not always the least In
fault. Two movements feminism and the
laiciaatlon of schools have contributed
! largely to leveling the respect for the finer
I usages of society. The teachers are often
I far from being gentlemen In the true sense

gentle feelings In their pupils. The whole
moral tone In France la deplorably low. and
the code Is lax; and If women do not re

men to respect them.
