II; Keep on Wearing Old
Clothes Says Mayor
I Commenting upon press dispatches
of this morning Avhich carried the in
I formation of an alleged confession by
I n former overalls manufacturer that.
I the "overall" movement was origin-!
I ated by a New York reporter and the
t Idea sold for the purpose of stimulate i
j I ing an immense sale of denims, Mayor!
1 Frank Francis declared thai even Ifj
II this report were true, the overall
1 1 movement and the wearing of old
clothing was a good one and the peo-.
pfi pie should not allow rumors, by any
' means, to bring a halt to their efforts
I . tor bring down the cost of clothing.
L J'Even if the' newspaperman d.d re
L ceh e $10,000 as reported and the ovcr-
jails manufacturers adopted and adver
m Jised the movement to increase their
I Isales, the move has already proved
I' beneficial," Mayor Francis said.
"Prices of clothing arc already falling
in the eastern states and the decrease
1s rapidly sweeping west. Prices in
I New York have been reported as fall
I Ing from $5 to $20 a suit and the dc
I crease can be directly traced to results
I obtained by the 'overall' and old cloth
I ing movement
"The 'overall' movement, however,
Is rapidly giving way to tho wearing
: of old clothes in all parts of the coun
I. try, in order that no hardship may be
I' Ihnist upon the workingmen who need
I: the denims In their employment. If
U the people of Ogden will religiously
V give their co-operation In the move
s' ment and wear old and even patched
I clothing, they will accomplish much!
H in bringing clothing prices to their
m normal level."

Tieup in Transportation Costs
As a direct result of the switchmen's
strike, sheepmen of Utah and other
intermountain states have lost thous
ands of dollars, according to William
Johnson, chief dispatcher of the
Southern Pacific railroad company
here. He said the spring movement of
sheep from winter ranges was delayed
about three weeks too long because of
labor conditions on the railroads The
delay weakened ewes because of food
shortage and hundreds of healthy
lambs died becauso they lacked nour
ishment. He said:
"The spring shipment of sheep
amounted to approximately 800 car
loads, Uie average load being from 200
to 250 sheep.
"Hardly a shipment was made that
did not result in a loss of ?3,000 to
$10,000 for shippers.
"Had it been possible to move tho
sheep three days earlier, they would
have been able to reach summer ran

SEATS NOW ON SALE J
There is an uncertainty in the minds of the public regarding the price of shoes !
for this coming fall. ;
SHOES WILL COST MORE THIS FALL THAN THEY ARE COSTING E
THIS SPRING. i
Besides owning the Jones Shoe Store, I travel on the road in the western half S
of the United States, representing one of the largest manufacturers of good J
medium shoes in the United States. I sell thousands of pairs of shoes each r
I month to other RETAILERS. I have just finished my trip and have sold the I
retailers their shoes for their next FALL business. W
The RETAILERS of shoes have paid WHOLESALE from 50 cents to $1.50 i
a pair more for shoes they will sell this FALL thai they paid for shoes they q I
are seMng this SPRING. Consequently, but one thing can happen and that is X 1
X THE RETAILER WILL HAVE TO GET MORE FOR HIS SHOES THIS 1 I
It is the importer of raw hides and the tanner who control the price of the g I
leather that eventually makes the price of shoes higher or lower. It is NOT the A I
MANUFACTURER of shoes nor the RXTAILER. I
Being a retailer of shoes, as well as a wholesale salesman of shoes, I am well j I
acquainted with market conditions sevc al months in advance and am able to $ j I
' make the purchases for my retail store accordingly. For instance: In my store $ I
there is a girls' black calf shoe, which I am selling for $7.00 a pair and making A 1
a fair profit; while the actual WHOLESALE COST PRICE of this shoe today 0
is $7.75. I purchased this shoe many months ago before the wholesale price ! MK
advanced and am giving my customer j the benefit of my knowledged of market -v Lit1'
conditions. J "Tfl
f TO VERIFY this statement my factory samples and wholesale price list and I j
W copies of orders just sold to the largest retailers in the West are at my store $ (
and open for inspection. A i j
A ' III
if However, we, the public, have one alternative, and that is to buy only such I
clothing and shoes as we need and it is our duty to make them last as long as I
possible. We all must wear SHOES, and it is ECONOMY to buy QUALITY , !
FOOTWEAR, which is found in our medium grade stock. JfV

Dan Clark Tells How He Hap
pened to Be Arrested on
"Fire Bug" Charge
Dan Clark, janitor of tho Lorin Fan
school objects to notoriety gained, by
reason of what he says is an innocent
sequence of circumstances which re-
suited in his being arrested by Ogden
police, taken to tho city ail, and exam-
inert on suspicion of being tho "re
nowned but unknown firebug" who
jmay have had something to do with tho
fire at the Grant school a week ago.
Mr. Clark's. story Is this: Yesterday
evening he was making his way back
to the school whore he lives In a room
furnished for his habitation; on the j
way he met an old minor named Andor-1
son, whom he does not know and had '
not met before. Anderson complained ;
of suffering from lead poisoning and!
Clark recommended a remedy, a quan-'
tity of which he had in his rooms
u ithor he Invited Anderson to accom
pany him; trying to open the door of
the school his key broke, and ho re
ported to a window and gained en
trance thereby, procured the medicine
which he gave to Anderson who Im
mediately took his departure for re
It seems that some girls in the dis
trict saw Clark making his entry into
the school by a window and thinking
ho might be a firebug promptly told
their parents who called the police
with the result as stated.
Mr. Clark has been in the employ of
tho city board of education for about
threo years and possesses an exem
plary character, said Supt. W. Karl
Hopkins this morning. "We are sure
tnero is nothing to the suspicion cast
upon Mr. Clark," J
