The best place in Tri-
Cities to buy Beacon
Blankets is at The Fair.
Reasons Why You Should
Buy Beacon Blankets
FOR over ten veara Beacon Blankets have been on the market. During
that ti- ).elr dependable durability, wide scope of sizes and styles,
deliphtlu. niiish and pleasir.g colorinps have made them almost as
indispensible in the home as is sunshine and air. Whenever one buys a
Beacon Blanket, one is content in a knowledge that they have secured
the brpt there is. Something that will never disappoint: something that
etan.13 far above all ethers. To you who know Beacon Blankets, we need
say no more. To you who do not know them, we suggest that you

Reasons Why You Should
Buy Them at The Fair
WE consider the Beacon Blanke; a staple article, almost as much so
as flour and salt and accordingly are satisfied with a small" profit.
Last season The Fair sold n"aiiy as many Beacon Blankets as all
other Tri-City stores combined. Our stock was enormous ; an abundance of
reserve orders made it possible for us to keep our sux-k complete and we
sold every Blanket at the lowest possible margin of profit. This season wa
aim to break our own record. Tomorrow morning the real selling commenc
es. Look in our west window, then come to our second floor and see a
real Beacon Blanket display.
SO R raxT 's our Pric or beacon Velvet Nap
Blankets, "2x84 inches. Note the rz large
enough for the In re. est bed and rente to spare. We show
them In tan, white and grey. If you know another store
handling Beacons, get their pr ce on a blanket similar to
this and remember they are selling for 52.4S a pair her
at The Fair.

ducts. They take the place of eilkoline and satteen com
forts; are lighter, yet warmer and much easier to wash.

very pleasing floral an oriertal designs. The nap is
exceptionally noticeable as it is exceptionally soft and
even. They are of a size to cover easily th largest beds,

these Comfortables, and suggest that every woman mnke

"They say that, the republican nom
ination this year was attained by theft
and fraud. I have examined the facts
relating to this charge and I believe
It' is untrue. It is doubtless true
that the methods of electing delegates!
to our eonveiitions, of all parties, re
publican and democratic alike, are In
a period of transition. Some states
have adopted the direct primary meth
od; in others the old methods still
obtain. The very fact that the new
methods are rapidly coming in shows
that the republican party is open to
change and reform, and that it is not
hidebound in its methods. And the
proper course for those who believe
in the new method of primary election
is not to destroy the party which Is
already busily adopting that method,
but to go on and hasten to secure its
adoption in all the remaining states."
Of the tariff, Mr. Stinison said:
"The republicans offer a definite pro
gram which includes a sufficient meas

ent industries to go on and yet which
will prevent the possibility of exces
sive prices coming from excessive pre
tection," and, "on the other side, you
have a democratic platform which at
tacks the whole basis of our existing
system of industries; and you have
a democratic house of representatives
