land. Among the
since the last re
port were those
of Phil Mitchell, imentioned last even
ing in The Argus, and that of W. H.
Marshall for $1,500. While the total
now subscribed for the fund leaves but
a comparatively small amount yet to
be secured, many subscriptions will be
required to make the total of $16,550
necessary. The committees are keep
ing right at the canvass, and are mak
ing a big final effort to quickly clcis
the canvass with the $100,000 fund
placed in the hands of the board cf
trustees in the form of binding sub
scriptions covering a period of five
years. Now that the fund is nearly
completed, many who have thus far not
contributed, perhaps because they fett
that their subscription was not needed,
will add their names to the roll, and it
is confidently expected that a very few
days more will see the whole $100,000
cubscribed. The executive committes
HIGH QUALITY POPULAR
Hundreds of people have trans

other stores because they find
we offer better quality and styles
in jewelry and its kindred lines.
Just now we are giving special
prominence to moderately priced
things, but every day our con
stant thought is to make this a
better jewelry store, to give low
er prices, greater assortments,
and to improve our service if it
can be done.
