Tho tramp bill, which Imposes the costs
of prosecution of these gentry upon tho
Stale, waa opposed by Mr. Hlanchard of
Windsor, who hiihi It would Impose a Inruo
1-j.pent.o on the, Ktnte. Thu claim Is that
while the expense of prosecuting tramps
Is n iw placid on tl,n towns there, are
fjw atiests, because olficers inakini; such
arrests would be llabln to criticism in
tbclr towns, but that, If th r'osls wire

Our Stock Of Winter Coats Is
'Divided Into Two Lots At

Every woman in or near Burlington should
sit up and take notice of this extraordin
ary bargain-offering! Even if you do not
need a coat for this winter, it will pay you
to buy one now at Clarkson's and save
it for next winter. This is one of the
times when you can actually save money
by spending it. "There are only about
300 coats remaining from our immense
winter stock. All sizes are here, though
not in each style, and if you come early
you may be certain of getting a perfect-fitting
coat that pleases you highly. IfWe
take stock on February 1st. and before
that date every one of these coats should
be sold. That is why we have cut prices
to ?uch amazingly low figures. These
coats have been divided into two lots at
the following prices . ' . ' . , ' . ' . '
are represented, in the
