There is always an oppor
tunity to pick up bargains in
a Department Store like ours
because there are so many
odds and ends that have to be
got rid of in order to make
room for new goods. We aro
constantly bringing out into
the sunlight pieces that attract
the eye of tho buyer. Some
times thero are piece3 that do
not meet ready purchasers,.
Thoso are tho things, which'
have to be cut in two in price.
Our stock of Haviland ware
lias been culled over so often
that it docs not present as
handsome appearance now as
it will when the new goods
arrive. Plenty of tho old stock
left for those who want odd
bits at a quarter off regular
prices. Tho patterns are right
if the prices are what 'ou need
to fill up your set or to uo in
serving a course dinner.
Asparagus Dishes, Mustard
Cups, Toast Racks, After Din
ner Coffees, Mush Sets and
Plates. White Haviland bes
quality cheaper than you over
saw it. Our patterns are all
"stock." We sell you a single
piece or a full set.

three njou's work in tho oflico of
tho Attornoy General for a small
monthly stipend, was found yes

D. Nahoolowa. Tho timo was
just about d o'clock and tho miss

policeman shook hands with Ken,
but tho captain did not seem at
all pleased to sea him and
rather resented tho familiarity.
Ho told the ollicor that ho didn't
want to bo watched and followed
around and that ho preferred to
bo lot severely alone. Tho ollicor,
however, insisted on gotting in
the hack with him and restoring
him to tho bosom of his family,
which was dono. Kea refused to
