All the correct and most popular models, too, are to be had in a
wealth of fashionable pattern and mixtures. Shawl Collar Coats
in high demand and scant supply elsewhere are here in splendid pro

shop when a full season's service is to be had from every garment now
purchased the Hackett -Carhart prices are lower than would or
dinarily be possible at the season's end.
You might wait until Spring before you make your next clothes
selection. Even then, you couldn't begin to duplicate Hackett-Car-hart
clothes at to-day's Hackett-Carhart prices.
The reason for this is the recent receivership and the settlement
with creditors at 50 cents on the dollar. Which sacrifice is exactly
proportionate to your saving.

MORNING and afternoon a man must keep
his body and brain in tunc. That's effici

is an excellent pace maker.
A few whiffs in the morning clear your brain
and concentrate it on your work. In the afternoon,
many a good long steady pull at the pipe keeps that
concentration keyed just right.
At night, after a good day's level-headed work, sit
back in your easy chair at home and get the solace and
relaxation that comes from a big calabash of Tuxedo.
That's the true history of many a Tuxedo day.

Tuxedo is unique, individual. It's the only

Business men find Tuxedo helpful. Authors

use it before and after performances. Doctors
enjoy it and recommend it.
