Newest Coolest Wash Fabrics and "Staples" at Half and Less
First Floor, Left Aisle
This Wash Goods' Sale will be eventful! Think of buying the prettiest of bright, new 1909 wash fabrics at a less price than . the . mills
would accept a large order for today! How can we do it? One of the large wholesale concerns of the country notified us that they were
read to take a tremendous loss if they could make a quick sale of their entire wash goods stock in certain lines. Our ridiculously low cash
offer was accepted. The finest freshest, newest lot we ever bought at the price we paid. Like a bevy of bees -will eager shoppers be
among these piles of crisp new fabrics. And while there are thousands of yards such prices as the following will whisk the lots away be
fore some of you are aware they are even on sale.
42,000 yards regular 15c to 30c Values, now 5c to 15c per yard
Just in the beginning of the warm season when you most need wash dresses and shirt waists you will have the opportunity of selecting
them at a price so much less than regular that, in most cases, you may buy two dresses for less than one would cost. ' , -

MRS. LUMMIS TALKS OF .
' WORK FOR CHILDREN
Qnincy W'oman Believes Juvenile
Courts and Industrial Educa- ;.
tion Most Important. -
Mrs. Josie Lummis of Quincy. super
intendent of the Illinois W. C. T. V.
department of anti-child labor who will,
attend the W. C. T. U. convention here
in October, says of her work: ;
"There is no department in ; tne;
Woman's Christian Temperance lUn-
4ou, which surpasses in importance .to
the future citizenship of our great
country, the department of anti-child
labor, juvenile courts and Industrial
education. It is the aim of this de
partment to study child labor; crimin
ology of child labor, source, results,
ihysical degeneracy, abnormal condi
tions and preventions. . - V
"In the mines of our state, in the
cotton belt of the south, in the mills
of the east and manufacturing centers ,
of our country, ' there are children
cperating or feeding wonderful ma
chines, and in the mining centers es
pecially, one can see little ones per
forming labor fit for only full grown
men, and so daily and monthly and
yearly the monster, greed, demands
this horrible sacrifice of child life. .
' "The juvenile court Is without doubt -cr.e
of the most important branches
of state government, having jurisdic
tion, as it does, over the actions ; of
the boys and girls of the state. The
functions of -court place; it in the.
position of wielding greater Influence
in the formation" of future citizenship
of the city than any other agency.
Jtidse Ben Lindsev of Denver. Colo..
' has won national and international
fame through his great, work as juven
ile court judge. ...
"The white ribbon women of ' the
state of Illinois, composed largely of
mothers, hope to help "educate, agi
tate and legislate" for the protection
of the child. No greater tribute could
bo paid any man than to have It truly
said the world Is a little better for
our having been in it and. particularly
emphatic and impressive Is such.' testi
