"There is only one Unestnur, bti-cot.'- cxclaimfed a satisfied shop
per the other day, ns she regarded happily tho results of n day's tour
of the Chestnut Street Shops which her chauffeur was stowing away
In her limousine. "I've bought practically everything I need for my
summer home without leaving Chestnut Street, nnd I feel sure that
I have spent my money to the best possible advantage."
THE problem of outfitting the
kitchen Ih one which seems
most formidable when you nre
n bride whose chief concorn hereto
fore has been the purchase of becom
ing hats nnd frocks. Thcro nro so
many things you will need that it
is'hnrd to know just where to begin
making out a list. It is very much
easier to use a list nlready made
out, nnd I know just where you can
obtain one. The housefurnishing
store of J. Franklin Miller, 1612
Chestnut Street, has prepared such
a list, which they will forward to
any one requesting it. You can
check off tTie things you will need
and I con assure that you'll not find
yourself in the embarrassing posi
tion of the bride who fried bacon
on her new vafile iron because she
had forgotten to buy a frying pan.
MANY week-end shipments of
fruit to summer resorts and
points within 1000 miles of
Philadelphia are being sent by
Hcnrv R. Hnllowcll & Son, Broad
Street below Chestnut. Their special
parcel post service enables them to
send their superb quality fruits to
towns where such fruit3 arc not
obtainable, and to get them there
at express train speed, the time they
are in transit being only three
hours longer than it takes i
person to make the same journey.
Perfect delivery is guaranteed, so
the customer takes no risk. Hal

AFTER a long day of sport or
work and playing hard is
quite as fatiguing as working
hard there is nothing quite so bliss
ful as n night's rest on a comfort
able bed, which means, of course,
one of Dougherty's Faultless
Curled Hair Mattresses. Curled
horsehair is, you know, the most
sanitary of materials used in
mattress manufacture, and it is
possessed of properties of resiliency
which make it luxuriously restful.
H. D. Dougherty & Company, 1632
Chestnut Street, make also a box
spring a product of forty-five
years' experience which insures to
you n good night's rest. It is, a wise
plan to send your box springs, mat
tresses and pillows on ahead to our
summer home thus making sure of
comfortable nights during vacation
JEWELS seem truly the most
fitting of graduation gifts, for
they will remind their wearer of
the 'donor long after the happy oc
casion of her commencement. A
ring set with a Polished Girdle Dia
mond is most beautiful and appro
priate, and bar pins arc always in
good taste. An exquisite bar pin of
gold is set with a diamond nnd two
sapphires and a platinum-faced pin
of rarely beautiful design" has
three diamonds. Another gift cer
tain of appreciation is a flexible
bracelet of diamonds, sapphires and
diamonds, rubies and diamonds, or
emeralds and diamonds. A gift of
this kind is n wise choice not only
for tho immediate pleasure which its
possession brings, but for its in
vestment value, for precious stones
advance each year in value.
RL men who arc interested in
sports will be glad to know
that Jacob Reed's Sons, 1424-

mighty good-looking outing trousers
of white washable khaki. They, have

department devoted to golf suits and
accessories is most complete, and
the golf hose in particular arc re
markable for their wearing quality

the ladv from the Main

Valley way, as they stopped before,
the window of A. G. Spalding &
Bros., nt 1210 Chestnut Street. It
really was a beauty pale yellow
aim with a border in soft Oriental
colorings. Just the tiling to wear
with summer sports clothes, and so
different from anything else I'd seen
that I decided to investigate. Once
inside the store I became interested
in bathing shoes they were of white
canvas with black chamois soles.
Evory one seems to be looking for
balhing suits just now, nnd Spald

to buy them that is. if vou are
looking for something that is a bit
out of the ordinary in style.
