AMONG the numerous, notable achieve-
ments of this store during nearly a
quarter of a century of triumphal pro
gress, the production of our present elaborate
array of spring apparel is certainly far from least!
M. & K. has always championed the cause of
honesty in clothes selling and from the first ex
cluded craftiness and duplicity, not only from their
business methods and advertising statements, but
also from the merchandise itself.
Great things are expected of great institutions and while
our remarkable display is no more than the public has reason
to expect, it is a great factor in maintaining our established
pre-eminence, which is the evidence of our triumph!
Big buyers always get the "plums" we have a store full!
Buying for two big stores gives us a decided advantage. But
theyVe yours if you wish. We're glad, indeed, to pass the ben
efits of these extra values on to our patrons.
We tell you plainly we can and WILL save you from $1 to $5 on the
Suit or Overcoat of your choice. We are sure you will give us an opportunity
to prove it.

It Is Dangerous to Neglect a Cold.
How often do we hear it remarked,
"It's only a cold," and a few days later
learn that (he man is on his back with
pneitmonio? This is of such common
occurrence that a cold, however slight,
should not be disregarded. Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy counteracts any
tendency of a cold to result in pneumo
nia, and has gained its great popular
ity and extensive sale by its prompt
cures of this most common ailment. It
always cures and is pleasant to lake.
