YOUNG men's styles, as we show them, are not especi
ally different from styles for older men; there's a
smartness of color in the fabrics that older men may think a
little too loud ; there's a snap to the cut of the garments that young fellows
particularly like; we enjoy supplying these young men with such clothes;
made for us by
Hart Schaffner & Marx
the greatest style creators of all ; new models in Shape-maker and Varsity ;
new shapes in the two or three- button-sack with long roll lapels; we're mak
ing this a young men's store.
B . t not to the exclusion of older men; we're here to see that you're
well dressed at every age; we have styles and patterns for every taste. We'll
fit and satisfy any man..
Suits $ 1 8 and up to $25
Other makes at $8.50, $10 and up to $1 6.50. The very best values you
ever saw offered at the prices.

diamond, was that played Friday,
whon Hickman chalked up 9 goose
eggs as Cayco's end of a 7 to 0

between "Cherry Red," for Hickman,
and White, for Cayco. "Cherry"

ment Cherry came off better, allow
ing only three hits, while Hickman
bats found White safely 7 times.

Judging from tho number locusts
that are swarming in this section, It
must be locust year. These strango
