stand prosperity, and knocked off his
canvass about noon and proceeded to
celebrate. In a few hours his funds
were exhausted, and he returned to
the "easy money" neighborhood. But
he forgot where he left off. and called
at one house where he had received

We are going to have a quiet little suit sale this week.
Mind you we do not advertise to sell -. suits for $G. 25
or any such tommyrot which every seusibln person in
stantly recognizes as "fake" of the tirst water, but wo
are going Jo offer such bargains as an. intelligent merchant
who understands his business can offer to an intelligent
public which is not to be fooled with mere words. We
have arranged to sell out the remaining suits of a number
of lots which have proven so satisfactory and sold so well
that but few of each are left. Ia view of the fact that we
have already done so well with them ami that there are
but a few left anyhow we are going to put 011 sale these
$18 and $20 Suits and Overcoats at $15
Which is very nearly at cost, but not below. It will not
be necessary for us to loss money on these suits in ord er
to get rid of them. They are not that sort. The mater

A COOL CALCULATION
The stove that consumes a large
'quantity of fuel, gives little heat
and needs repairing often, ia au
One that gives great heat with
urn all consumption of fuel soon
pays for itself.
VVe have a line of the latter
kind of stoves. Every one of
them is a nroney saver. Brains
have been used in their design,
skill in their manufacture. The
result is perfection.
And they cannot be duplicated at our
prices. Sucb xplendid value are found
nowhere out of our ure.
