months visited the Normal schools at
I'.loomington and Carbondale, and many
ol the leading institutions of learning in
different parts ot the stato, and In many
respects the Cairo schools weie superior
to the beit of them. President Acker-

not only pleased but was surprised
at the uuperiority ol the Cairo school".

Wo look over our book for the psit month November ani find It to have been
Iho lurfcest Dullness month' w have had lor years. Why? Not on account ot any
increase In business generally, for everybody knows busineis In jrenoral I no bet
ter than last year. We will tell why we say it. -
Clothing buyers have been for time immemorial asking tor good goods-paying
good prices therefor, and thinking they got-'value received'' but found they were
deceived, and yon can find most of clothing buyers to-day disbelieving everything
that is'said or written about, honest goods. We opened the lull campaign fully cogni
zant of tho many rnmon that were afloat about the clothing business, with the de
termination to Keep good goods, well made, and sell them at the
lowest figures, and expose the "mysteries" ot the
clothing trade. How well we have succeeded in the former we leave
our many customers to speak; how we have succeeded In the latter, the readers of
the press may judge-while our hand Is In, we will ask a favor of all our customers.
Please tell people, when you are asked, where you bought your garment that vou
got it ot Farnbaker, The Clothier, and not y: "I hid It made. 1 bought tbe
goods, had it cut by a tailor, and my wite made it lor me," and we will consider
it a favor, and continue to give you garment that, you will Merer bo ashamed of.
Our overcoat sales have been larger than they have br-en (or year. Onr$'J2coats
are "the boss," and cannot, be turninlied by nnv tailor lor leas than $45. There
are plenty worn upon run- streets: take a look at ihcm,
