It Is related that an old Atchison
colored woman who has a great many
children, takes In washing and works
llko n slave, was called on by a doc
tor nnd n health officer last winter,
during tho smallpox excitement, who
told her sho must be vaccinated, The
old colored woman was good and
mad. Sho said sho had no tlmo to
stop to bo sick with vaccination, and
besides, could not sparo one of her
arms; that tho children would starve
and freezo if she could not do her
laundry work. Then tho doctor said
"Well, auntlo, I will vucclnate you on
one of your lowor limbs." "No,
slreo," said tho colored auntlo, "can't
sparo ono of my legs, cither." Then
tho doctor said kindly: "Well, what
spot could you spare, because you
must bo vaccinated?" Tho old color
od womun thought and finally said,
slowly: "Well, Lord knows, I dou'l
uevur get no chauco to sit down."
JUST at this season of the year there's
many a person who is. wondering
"what to give a man for Christmas."
The man can't tell you; probably he
doesn't know ; but the chances are that inside
of two weeks after Christmas he'll be coming
in here to buy something he wants that you
could have given him for a present.

$16.50 to $25.00.

Schaffner & Marx make the right kind and we sell them
right; $20 to $25.
Or, should you not care to pay quite so much for a
suit or overcoat, we have splendid values and attractive
1 lr you decide on such a gift the question of. ht can be
easily solved; bring us an old suit or overcoat; after
ward, if the clothes don't fit him right we'll change or
alter them free.
J There are many other things for men in a store like
this ; not so costly as clothes ; quite as acceptable and
Fine neckwear; rich silks of the best quality; many
fine colorings and patterns; from 25c to $1.00.
A great stock of good gloves from the best makers,
$ 1 to $2. And heavier, cheaper gloves for other than

1$ Sweater and sweater coats are always acceptable;
good things here, from 2.00 to 1 0.00.

Or perhaps a suit case or handbag, solid leather and
well built, a gift always appreciated by any man, from
5.00 to 1 2.50.
