THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1012.
The tendency this year more than ever is to give sensible
Xmas Gifts. There is no gift more sensible, more acceptable
and more economical than a gift of clothing. Serving day
after day as it does, and giving joy to the wearer, the giv
er is remembered more closely and more gratefully than he would be for any other present
you could make. Gately's have anticipated your gifts of Clothing. Never have our floors
carried a bigger assortment of
Suits, Dresses and Coats for Ladies, and Suits and
Overcoats for FVlen and Young Men.
All the latest styles are here for your choosing, and from the assortment shown one can
make a satisfactory selection. The jact, too, that Gately's sell everything in the store for a
small payment down and $1 a week for the balance appeals to almost everyone, for buying
on credit is a modern way of doing business. It is not necessary to stint your purse or buy
cheap presents. Buy here for

This winter's fashion in women's coats is heavy rough ma.
tcrials, big sleeves and big collars. The striking black and
white stripes and mixed suitings are prominent this fall. The
length is longer than in past seasons and, in fact, full length
is the standard. Women's suits come in mixed colors, and
the cut-away effect as well as the large full coats find full sway.
Ail these you will find in big assortments at Gately's.

Former Mayor George W. McCaskriu
stated today that he had decided to be
come a candidate for county judge be
fore the special election, whenever it
shall be called. He has elected to run
as an independent, although desiring
the endorsement of the democratic
party. "I have always been an Inde
pendent in polities," said McCaskrin,
"but my sympathies were all with the
demoerats in the recent campaign. I
was a s'aunch supporter of Judgn
Dunne, whom I know personally' and
with whom I had many pleasant con
ferences while he was mayor of Chl
cago and I, enjoyed the same honor in
I Rock Island. I propose to make an ag
gressive campaign for the office o4
county judge from this on."
