is a necessity for the free export

Fedora McNamee was mad.
Not mad in the sense which
learned people use the word
but iii the common acceptance
of tire term. Seven evenings
each week for months had
Count Luigi Spaghetti called
upon her, and her mind was
set upon a proposal from him;
seven nights in the week for
months Fedora had appeared
before the Count in her most
fetching gowns, and each time
he was more effusive in his
protestations of love. Visions
of castles, gondoliers, and of
Venice, dear watery Venice
filled her soul. Fedora, the
beautiful, was to be a countess.
She would make her father an
earl and her mother an earless
when Luigi took her to his
home in Italy.
The guys who passed her on
the avenue with sky pointed
noses because her father, as a
member of the force, had
grown rich before the Lexow
Committee had begun its work
would now fall at her feet and
she could be "swagger." But
Fedora McNamee was mad.
After the Count had left her
on his two hundred and thir
teenth consecutive visit Ber
nard AkNamee called his
daughter to his side and laying
down AkKanes' "Purity in
Politics" addressed her thus:
"Fedora me child, you're
your father's joy and your
mither's hope. It's me ambi
tion to have yez kim to the
frint an' take a shtep in the
sasietee in which your father,
as a descendant of Brian Boru,
mingled in hisould home in En
niskillin. It's me wish to see
yez the Queen of Vinnis, but,
me daughter dear,, from what
the byes do be tcllin me Shpa
getti's not fixed. He's no
count, ah' if yez marry him
yez'll have no rvall blud in your
veins. O'Hoofihan, him that
keeps the 'O'Hoolihan Cafe in
the next warrud, tells me, an'
he's a good frind of mine, that
for siven weeks Shpaghetti's
been eatin' at his place and
whin he wants a shtake he
calls for 'shlaughter in the pan.'
Fedora, me child, the Count's
a biscuit shooter in a Green
wich street 'coffee an' sinkers'
shop. Aarry him and yez dis
own your father." .
Fedora AkNamee was mad.
The two large, full jjrown
Refrigerators you saw in our
store last week have been sold.
If your needs require one of
this style you must wait until
the "Australia" returns before
you can d it. If you will be
satisfied with a smaller one we
can let you have an "Alaska"
hardwood refrigerator that will'
tickle you almost to death.
We've sold hundreds of refri
gerators and ice boxes since
we have been in business but
none of them will compare in
ice saving qualities with the
Alaska; there's only one of
them left others on the way.
We have watched more
heart thrills in people who were
examining our Solid Silver
Ware than you could expect to
find in a society drama. It is
astonishing what real values
you get when you purchase
such things from us. We
bought them at a low price
and you get whatever benefit
there is. The designs are the
latest, the quality the best and
the price the lowest a combi
nation that is hard to beat.
The plated ware we show is
pre-eminently the best in Hono
lulu. There's no excuse for
your not giving useful pre
sents for Christmas because
this year high prices do not
stand in the way. We luve a
