THE power of a dollar is never greater than it is at Gately's in the purchase of furniture, rugs, cloth
ing, etc. The widow's mite is as effective as the banker's dollar all that we require is absolute honesty and the widow and the
working man are just as much entitled to credit as is the banker or capitalist. That is the Gately principle we believe in the honesty of
the people. Your promise to pay is as acceptable to us as is a promisory note in the hands of the banker. That is why we have built up
a magnificent chain of stores that extends from ocean to ocean and sells merchandise to people in all walks of life.
We want to call especial attention to the line of furniture now on our floors. It is complete in every detail whether it be a chair, table, dresser, bed, a davenport, a rug, stove or
whether it be clothing for men and women you will find here just what you want and YOU CAN BUY IT FOR LESS AT GATELY S. We mean this, you can buy it for less at Gately's
in addition to securing easy terms of payment. It is simply our way of doing business we buy for less and we sell for less, , .i..--?- .
Now that Easter is over and spring is at last with us, you will be busy with housework, cleaning, moving, rearranging, etc. You will want new things for the home. Don't stint with
your home furnishings. A man's home should be his palace. Don't say you can't afford some new articles now don't think you can't buy the better grades you can if you buy from
Gately's. Hundreds of your friends and neighbors buy here and we want to enroll you as a customer. Once you form the habit of trading here you will buy here regularly.

Almost a Miracle.
One of the most startling changes
ever seen in any man, according to W.
B. Holsclaw, Clarendon, Texas., was
ffected years ago in his brother. "He
had such a dreadful cough," he writes,
"that all our family thought he was
'going Into consumption, but he began
to use Dr. King's New Discovery, and
was completely cured by ten bottles.
Now he Is sound and well and weighs
218 pounds. For many years our fam

for Coughs and Colds with excellent
results." It's quick, safe, reliable and

much fortitude as Father Damlen
displayed when he knew himself to
be stricken. Word was received the
ether day that Pere Isadore Dupuy
is now dying In a hut in the leper
colony of Marana, Madagascar. Like
Pere Dupuy, Brother Dutton will
know only one solace in his affliction;
he will be permitted to say mass as

Brother Dutton, or Captain Ira
Barnes Dutton, as he was known be
fore entering the missionary field, is
a civil war veteran. Enlisting as a
member of the Janesville City, Vt.,
zouave cadets, he rose to the rank of
captain. After the war he entered
the services of the Louisville & Nash
ville railroad, subsequently Joining
the Dominican Fathers at Memphis.
He was living In a Trappist monas
tery when the story of Father Dam
ien's heroic work at Molokal reached
him. When Father Damien died in
1889 Brother Dutton succeeded him.
Bu,t for the accident which took
Robert Louis Stevenson to the south
seas the story of Father Damien's
life would have reached a much
smaller circle of readers. Father Dam

istic generosity Sterenson rushed to
the priest's defense and the open let
ter in which 8teyenson attacked his
detractors contains the most bitter In-,
vective the novelist ever penned. The
heroism of Father Damien thus be
came known to all the world.
In an article written for the Catho
lic Encyclopedia Brother Dutton says
that leprosy first appeared in the Ha
waiian islands in 18B8. Segregation
was begun in 1865. In 1908 the
leper colony at Molokal numbered 71.
