(! the following report at a meeting

"We appreciate the faithful and sac-,
rifteing spirit of those of the congre- .
v.-lion who have planned and built

their very life-blood being poured into
the treasury of the Lord.
"We appreciate the God-blessed i
ministry and consecrated personality '
o' the pastor. Rev. Marion Humphreys
and the splendid efficiency of his most '
capable wife during all the years of j
the pastorate and the large place

"Ilecognizing that the existing cir-i
mmrttances growing out. of the pl;in-
ning and ereetion of this church edi
fice are such as will handicap the
fullest efficiency of the present pas-'

"C! And that Rev. A. E. Moody is1
uppointed to be moderator of the ses

"U was a most trying situation for
tl;e members of the commission as '
Rev. Mr. Humphreys was most en
del. red o each one of them. They ren- j
d.rcd their decision in the spirit of,
M iiyer and with tear bedimmed eyes. ;
1 l.i- whole presbytery and the Wo- i

In our recent announcement, that "Kurz-
man had caught his inspiration from auzan
ne Talbot for the development of his won
derful group of garden hats and pokes; we
also state that our confidence in the predic
tions that these larger shapes were to be
come popular had induced us to provide
them in ple.-.v- What we then thought to
be "plenty" proved a mere "bagatelle" and
we have ordered them again and again.
Few of the makers were prepared for this
acute demand, but we've kept the wires
warm from here to New York, St Louis and
Chicago, and have constantly been able to
show a fairly good assortment when other
stores have been without these correct new
shapes. So today we say, we have plenty of
these strictly last rrinute, medium and larg
er shapes in all the most wanted colors.
The earlier you come, the better you'll
find the selection.
40 SSew oiiK Dresses for 40 Women at

A New York manufacturer after the early rush is over makes up from his ends of bolts
and short pieces of silks, one. two and three models of a style and disposes of them at about
what the silk costs him. Our share was 40 garments, and here they are, just from their boxes
charming one-piece dresses of silk serge in five colors, jiace taffeta in beautiful changeable
effects, striped chiffon taffeta in two-toned stripes and fancy foulards . with solid color com
binations. Some have collars and cuffs of white messaline and linen, others of contrasting colors
many with collars of Irish crochet lace.
