Hear Judge Mnck. j
This morning the principal address
was made by Judge Julian Mack of
Chicago, who gave an interesting ad
dress on the effect of the new Illinois
law regarding negotiable instruments, j
The address was a careful discussion j
of the law and proved of more than
ordinary interest to the bankers.
Sny S) Klein In Disgrace.
In an address yesterday before the
convention on the subject of currency
reform, Festus J. Wade, president of
the Mercantile Trust company of St.'
Imis, declared that the present cur-'
rency system is a disgrace to the intel
ligence of the bankers of the country.
He explained the reforms sought by '
the bankers' commission of 15 men ap
pointed by the American Bankers' asso-.
ciation to devise a scheme for a more
elastic currency system. He is a mem-j
ber of this commission. In speaking of
the importance of the currency reform,
Mr. Wade characterized it as of greater
importance to the nation than the build-1
ing of a great navy or the digging of
the Panama canal, and of greater im
portance to the Mississippi valley than
the construction of deep waterways.
In financial strength," he said, "The
United States represents 25 per cent
of the wealth of the world, and yet the
currency system is a disgrace to the in
telligence of the country's bankers.
War would bring ruin to many of the
banks, because they are built on a
foundation of sand." He stated that
the commission of which he is a mem
ber does not propose to formulate any
reform bill, but will present a scheme
to congress for its consideration, by
way of a suggestion only.

Long, the physician who examined the
body of May Sapp a few moments

fore the coroner's jury here yesterday

quoted as saying he saw a man and p.

while passing the house, heard some
one scream for help, were examined.

3d Illinois cavalry and 3d Missouri

Never has an artistic innovation in
dress received a warmer, more cordial
welcome from well gowned women than
has these Corsets. Said one of our best
known club women: I must have one

"A queenly presence!" What woman
does not aspire to that state of being
for it is a state of being, not mere stat
ure or proportion of physique! The as
piration is achieved by the wearer of the
"(iossard" Corset, for it gives the con
sciousness of appearing at one's best; it
gives the perfect poise of figure, the
feeling of security, the uniu filed com
posure and the happy peace of mind
which, radiating to encompass all be
holders, marks the serene, the queenly
Thesingle fact that they lace
in front makes them superior
to all other corsets. The prin

right for grace right for

"Clothes do not make
the man." Maybe not.
But, assuredly, "Figure
makes the woman," and
the "Gossard" Corset
makes the figure.
Beauty of face counts
but little if combined with
an ill-proportioned figure
and awkward carriage.

We claim, without fear
of dispute, for the "Gos
sard"' Corset that it gives
the "sculptured back;" re
duces and molds abnormal
hips; raises and supports
the abdomen; reduces the
waist measure; gives
length to the waist line:
leaves the stomach free,
and beautifully rounds the
bust, and "It laces in
front." It means beauty,
health, comfort to the wo
man who wears it.
These Corsets sell at the rea
sonable price of $5 and up.
Economical women will find
that one Gossard Corset at $5
is actually cheaper than 5 or
dinary corsets at $2 each.
Only a few days remain of this Special Exploitation Display and Demonstration and
we sincerely trust that you will take advantage of your present opportunity.
