Present indications point to
colder weather; if this prove
true, the clothiers' season will
be fairly open and the results
of the long, hard, preparation
ior winter will appear at Owen

good time to repeat a few
words of the manufacturers
Our mammoth outfitting es
tablishment exists as the ideal
clothing house of Springfield.
By the large use of capital,
by the employment of the best
energy and skill, by sound
business principles contin
ouslv applied, we are kept
first in the retail clothing trade
of all the country.

branch houses are located;

castle, Lafayette, Kansas
City. Mloomington, Lockport,
Syracuse, I'tica. Norwich,
Rome. Little Falls.
Owen Brothers hold place
and prestige by giving the best
for the least. Great opera

read cash capital make this
possible, and vast increasing
sales prove it done.
