J. Ramser's branch jewelry store at
Silvia was burglarized last night and
$500 worth of goods taken. Indica
tions are that the work was tha: of
amateurs, and the police hope to be
able to ferret out the perpetrators.
The Siivis branch of the Rock Is
land store was established during the
summer, occupying quarters . in tbe
front of the Wilson confectionery
store at First avenue and Ninth street.
Last night a glass panel was broken
in the rear door of t,he building and

The "jewelry and watches taken com
prised only part of the stock, the
more valuable articles and the

been professionals it is probable t.hey

the more expensive jewelry instead of

We were fortunate enough to make arrange

Company, r ifth Avenue. New York City, a re

There is absolutely nothing wrong with these
coats. They will not stick from heat or grow
hard from service. Every material has been
carefully selected for its durability. A special
process of rubberizing best suited to each par
ticular cloth has been used. This rubberizing
compound, by test of experts, is proved to be
the best compound possible. The coats are
stylish, perfect in workmanship, and we guar
antee them to be water-proof.
