They Imitate Us!
Some merchants are like par-J
rots mere imitators. lo
sooner did we inaugurate our
"Annual Clearance Sale" of
Men's and Boys' Clothing and
Athletic Goods than they al
most broke their necks to get
into the papers. We lead
and intend to lead. They may
endeavor to make you believe
you are getting bargains, but
if you will study your own inter
est "you will investigate and
compare our values with theirs.
We have an eye on them and
will always offer you better bar
gains than you could obtain
Our $io, $12, and $15 Suits
which we are running at $7.50
is a good illustration.

It Was Inferior to Onrs In Many
Roman civilization was Inferior to nurs
lu to Important elements the scientific
and the moral. Physical science in its more
advanced developments Is a modem crea
tion, and it has brought with It numerous
conveniences that tend to refine and ex
pand our lives.
Without steam, electricity and chemical
force, the Romans were narrowed down
to a very limited existence. But their civ
ilization was mainly deficient in moral cn
ergy. The old religion had died out amongst
the cultured classes. Even where It re
tained its influence In any degree, it was
powerless to 'elevate and puriry, for the
Ideals it presented for imitation the gods
who occupied its temples were themselves
destitute or moral character.
The patriotism which had been almost
a religion to'ihe ancient Romans had died
out. The Eoclal spirit the inspiration of
the modern leaders or men hardly existed
amongst n people who bad ceased to be a
nation, and existed only as a ruling class.
The civilization of Imperial Rome, based
on iiersonal pleasure, and regardless of
moral Ideals, quickly fell into decay, and
succumbed before barbarous nations which,
whatever their defects, were not wanting
