Everybody who wears a SOL I. BERG- SUIT is an
advertisement for me, but my best advertisements

"our suits are as good as BEBG-'S SUITS." I
don't sell the "Just as good kind,'' but the
FINEST OF CLOTHING READY TO WEAR.
The only clothing which is in a class by itself. Our
clothes speak for themselves. Thev are unap
proachable in STYLE, FIT and CORRECTNESS.
A glance at my FURNISHING- GOODS depart

and most complete line in El Paso. Hundreds of
articles that you will not find at any other store in

It sounds like a really for sure big
' league to hear Douglas. BIsbee and
, Cananea talking of buying, trading and
) releasing players. Douglas wants Guy
' nup to strengthen its team. Cananea
! is not using this player at the present
, time. Douglas proposed to trade, buy
, or exchange for the big chap -with a
loud Toice. Nothing doing -with Can

year and he was even paid the compli

to El Paso. Thornton is as rabid a fan
.for El Paso as he was for Douglas last

season opened was to have a lineup

on it for each game. Recently he has
