This is the Heyday of Fashion in
Color and movement those are th
features of the hour. You will see them in
the new gowns. Thev are wonderful in
their effect upon the draperies the looped
and swinging effects of lovely sup- -MS
pie fabrics. This drapery may beijg
: up in front, at the side orE
back; in an evening: gown
in tne uacK, in an evening
train or it may be slashed to show
the slippers and hosiery.
When it comes to color, the Cubist, or Futurist, or Post-Impressionist
influence is etill more marked. Never have such
vivid reds or blues, such pure brilliant golds and yellows, such
intense greens and purples been used so daringly.

To Think Well is to Grow Well
The man who first thought of putting a rubber tip on
lead pencils is said to have been rewarded by an income
of $100,000 a year.
The inventor of the ordinary umbrella is said to have
benefited six persons to the extent of five millions of dol
lars. Some of our good customers have given us many of
their good ideas, and as this store is their servant, we ask
them to keep on thinking and suggesting how it may be a

That's one of the beauties of buying a hat at Young &
McCombs Millinery department. No matter what the
price is, you will not meet your hat coming down the
street, or around a corner.
The objection most women have towards buying an in
expensive hat is the fear that one good style is made up
in wholesale quantities, and that duplicates are scattered
But there is no fear of that when purchasing a hat here, for every
hat is different from every oth r. The general style may be the same
-. pp. an imported hat may be copied several times, but in different
colors or different materials, so there is no "sameness" about them.
