Millinery for Fall
for Autumn in Our
FINE BUILDING IS
TO BE ERECTED
Ground Broken for New Home
for Central Union Tele
, phone Company.
The styles for fall are coming in. Every day fiads a
new creation. Our buyers are still in the eastern markets.
Though Paris has set no style, no definite shape, no particu
lar color, there is that unmistakable trend toward the small
black headwear with the single stick-up or" feathered band
of Nell rose or Xile green. -
The fall hats at Young & McCombs' are- decidedly be
coming. Gracefully sweeping curves that never swerve from
the natural lines of beauty, yet which vary this way or that,
adapting themselves to every style of face.
Tomorrow is the last day of our spe
cial 10 per cent reduction sale: Early
this morning found the last of the
original two special lines sold. In or
der to live up to our advertising we,
have made up new. lines from out new
arrivals for fall. These will include
such garments as Wooltex, Worth,
Druerr, Dritzen and other noted fash
ion kings. . .
Fad & Fashion for Fall
Not every worthy maker of women's suits turn3 out styl
ish, suits. Even with hints from a Paris or a Paquin may
fail to catch the essence of the stylish idea. They copy, but
their work is manifestly a copy. Others turn out a copy or
suit that might have well come from the Paris work rooms;
and if it is a tailored style, tbe chances are there's been som
practical addition or studied omission that makes it more ac
ceptable to the ideas of the American woman. These are the
makers that send suits and coats to Young & McCombs.
The advance styles of suits and coats are here. COME.
Ground for the new two story build
ing to be erected by the Central Union
Telephone company was broken today
and work actively started.
The building will -front on Eigh
teenth street between Sixth and Sev
enth avenues. The cost of the struc
ture will approximate $45,000 which j
with the original Investment of $7,400
for the lot will bring the total cost
well above $50,000.
The building will be built in the
shape of an L with the main building
00 feet long and 30 feet deep. The
short end of the L will be 40 feet long
by 30 feet wide.
A lunch room for the benefit of the
employes will be a feature of the
equipment of the new building. This
room will be . placed in .charge of a
matron and everything that can be
done 'to add to the comfort of the
operators will be installed.
The offices, exchange and terminal
rooms will all occupy the hrst noor.
The basement will be used entirely
as a storage room. Nothing but the
latest equipment will be installed in
the new exchange and particular ef
forts will be directed to have the
switchboard and other apparatus as
up-to-date as can be procured in or
der that the best possible service
may be given to the Rock Island pa
trons of the company.
