Cooper's New Discovery
Used The World Over
For Stomach Trouble
The tremendous ajtiount of rush unil bustle which
Is necessary to keep abreast of the times these days
haa created a condition of nervousness which is af
fecting the majority ot people in the United Slates.
That down-and-out, nervous condition is nothing
snore or leas than stomach trouble, now generally
recognized as the great American plague.
A man or woman in this condition can get little
happiness or success out of life They feci tired
all the time, have no energy or ambition, and are
gloomy, timid and despondent. They do not sleep
or cat -well, or feel wall, and life, instead ot being
a pleasure, is more of a burden.
Are you one of these trail sick, listless, tired,
nervous people? If you are, you should know that
there is a medicine that has brought back the old
energy and pleasure in life to thousands who have
tried it. The name of it is
Cooper's New Discovery
It has been pronounced the greatest medicine ever
sold to the public. Cooper's New Discovery is
sold by all druggists, who will refund the purchase
Iiriec if it fails to give you full and complete satis
action. It will build you up and bring back your
strength and vitality. You will be astonished how
quickly it acts. The first few doses will convince
you of rts merits. Cooper's New Discovery is
used the world over for stomach- trouble.

The Bow-knot Blouse
The Latest Fad of the Parisiennes
Has Been Reproduced by
GIMBELS for $2
It is curious how the eccentric idea of a man be
came the inspiration of a charming mode for women !
Maurice Kostand, the son of the famous author of
"Chantecler," and himself a prominent figure in
French literature, recently surprised Paris by wearing
a shirt fastened with bow-knots instead of buttons.
Immediately a well-known dressmaker created a
Blouse that made a delightful background for the
bow-knots. And the minute we saw it we recognized
its uniqueness and knew that it would be one of the
leading modes this Winter. Of course, we imported
the original model at a cost of $70- but not to put in
a glass case, so that we could simply say, "We have
the Bow-knot Blouse." But we immediately had it
copied in fine French voile, which is quite as effective
as the chiffon of the original model. And in doing so,
not a detail was stinted, and even the velvet ribbon
in the bows is of a beautiful quality. The illustration
will give you an idea of its style, and of its soft kerchief
front, but it can't illustrate the effectiveness of these
tiny colored bows just imagine one of these white
Blouses being worn with a black tailored suit, and
how its bows of rubv velvet will rive t hat indescrib
able cbic. Wre also have these Blouses with black and Nattier blue bow-knots.

About a week ago the tailor who makes many of our sn art Suits
offered us his entire surplus yardages of imported striped corduroy
of some colors and stripes there was only sufficient for four or five Suits,
of others only enough for two or three. We said "yes," if he would
copy one of our models and he agreed. Then we' selected a model
suit that was $95, in our own collection it is the style illiuitn.ted, with
the stunning three-button cutaway coat. When he submitted his first
copy we were simply amazed, for it was a wonderful reproduction. Besides,
it nas a deep collar and cuff band of skunk-dyed opossum Fur.
Considering the fine quality of the corduroy and the excellent
tailoring, we do not hesitate to say that these Suits
