STYLE means a lot to a woman. Now and then a woman
may sniff, but if studied one can see a failing in a style direction.
The effect of the most beautiful gown may be en
tirely spoilt if the base the corset is not right. The
waist of the dress may not touch the figure at the exact
point, the hips not be properly shaped and the gown may
wrinkle, be too tight or too loose.

CORSETTING will do this oftentimes if the corset
shape is not right, or it may result from careless adjusting
or wrong lacing. A small matter like the lacing may throw
the entire corset out of figure alignment and the wearer will
be wretchedly uncomfortable.
That is what we are here for for correcting corset
mistakes. It is our business to study figures, all kinds of
'figures, large and small, tall and short, even figures with
imperfections, and these are well corsetted through our spe
cialized study of the subject.

Sexton Will Resign.
J P Cuslck who haa for tho past
21 yearre had chargo of our city cem
etery, has tendored his resignation
as sexton, to take effect July 1st.
Tho reason assigned for his act
is very Justifiable; ho simply cannot
do all tho work himself, and has not
been allowed sufficient help to take
caro of tho cemetery in a propor
Acting Mayor, Jno. T. Dillon, tnlnka
we should make somo arrangement
to avoid his resignation. With tho
exception of Mayor Tom Dillon, no
I other person Is so well acquainted
with tho lota, graves, etc., as Mr.
Cuslck. His knowledgo of these mat
ters alono Is worth half his salary.
Ho should bo kept as sexton and
additional help piovided.
