hy not do the same thing when it comes to buying a suit?
The prices on men's suits are practically the same in most clothing establish

MARIN PEOPLE WANT
COUNTY FIRE DISTRICT
First Application of its Kind Conies
From Promotion League to State
SACRAMENTO. July 15.—The first
application for the formation of a
county fire district under the state
law for the protection of forest and
brush areas was received today by
State Forester Homans from John J.
Mazza, president of the Marin Promo
tion league, Marin county.
The recent forest fire in Mill Valley
and on Mount Tamalpais, prompted
Mazza to suggest the formation of the
Marin fire district.
Under the state forestry act of 1905,
one or less than four counties may
join in the formation of county fire
districts for protection of the forest
areas, the expenses to be met by the
county or counties interested.
Getting Your Moneys Worth
IN buying your Piano or Player Piano is sometimes more diffi
cult than it would sjjem. The one sure way to prevent future
regret is to patronize a house of reputation and of unques
tioned commercial standing. Select a Piano with a reputation
back of it and pay a reasonable price.
THE LUDWIG ANGELUS PIANO
represents the very finest value at its price offered in America today.
The Ludwig piano has been for years, because of its superb quality,
the most popular of all medium-priced pianos.
The Ludwig Angelus combines with Ludwig quality the most per
fect piano-playing mechanism ever made—THE ANGELUS —Giving
a maximum of musical perfection for a minimum of expended effort
and skill in operation.
More essential and exclusive features are embodied in Angelus
Players than in all others, yet their cost is no more than that of the
indifferently good. Exchange your useless* piano for a Ludwig An
gelus. The balance on easy terms.
