is Going Out of the Cloth
ing Business.
Owing the rapid growth of their
various other departments, such as
Dry Goods, Notions, Cloaks. Suits,
Millinery, Shoes. Underwear, Hosiery,
etc., the Leader Department Store is
forced to give up
their
place
of the
Clothing depart­
ment in order to make rocm for their
other departments which, are fast out
growing their present space.
The Leader Department Store has
had such rapid growth that, notwith
standing the additional space they
procured from time to time by leasing
additional room and extending their
main bui:ding, they are now compell
ed to give up one of their departments
in order to have sufficient space in
which to properly handle the remain
ing departments. They have therefore
concluded to give up the Clothing De
partment, and have inaugurated a
closing out sale.
This sale comes just in the right
season and will afford a splendid op
portunity to those desiring spring aid

PRESIDENT SEEKS REST.
Theodore Roosevelt, our presi
dent, lett Washington this week
for the lone star state to attend
the Rough Riders Regimental
Reunion, to be held in Houston,
and from there he will seek the
wild secluded woods for rest,
sport and hunting, where he will
be away from the busy cares of
life and its strenous duties. On
his long trip through the South
he has met with a continous ova
tion by the large enthusiastic'
broad minded people of the hos
pitable South, and no doubt the
same responsive reception awaits
him in Texas. We wish him a
grand reunion with hi Rough
Rider comrades and a delightful
bear hunt and much restoration
in health.

moy do even more for the great
city on the lake.
