The Art of Advertising.
It has been said that the art of advertising
is merely to present the absolute truth at
tractively. Our name and guarantee are back of
every garment that we sell, and everything
must be just what it is represented to be.
The goods themselves, and the prices at
which they are sold, arc their own best proofs
This week MEN'S and BOYS' SUITS
are in order. The Boys' are made like the
Men's Suits, and equally well. The prices
are much less than for Men's Suits.

There is an " honest tired feeling," caused
by necessary toil and cured by natural rest.
But very different is "that tired feeling," from
which so many complain and Avhich may
eve a be classed as a disease. That tired feel
ing takes you to bed tired and wakes you np
tired. You have no appetite, have bilious
taste, dull headache, are nervous and irritable,
blue, weak and discouraged. In such condi
tions Hood's Sarsaparilla does a world of good.
It begins in the right place in the blood,
purifying it and imparting vitality; then its
tonic effect is felt by the stomach, kidneys
and liver; appetite returns, waste is removed
naturally, headaches cease, that tired feeling
departs and you feel like a new person. Take
Hood's and only Hood's. Get it TODAY.
