Talking about C'othinp;: Have you ever noticed what wide'y
different garmen's for ma'e w-ar com under this titl? Every
man mast have CI thin, but ihere are c'othes and clothes.
There are clothes that simply pa isfr the demand for decent
covering, and clothes again that gratify the tast that comes with
culture and progress. By g d rights there ought to be no cloth
ing that does not come up to th la'tr standard Bit there is.
We do not keep it, but you have seen it with its general appear
ance of slovenliness and ill comfort. You can 6ee that kind of
clothing every day. It is not worth taking home, but it is adver
tised very extensively by gome dealers who make a specialty of
shoddy clothing. We have clo:hing for all class-s Merchant?,
.Artisan, Laborers, Clrs, etc You will fi id no trash or shoddy
We take justifiable pride in sayiDg that we have no clothing
for any class or occupation that will not in every way particular

idon Clothing Co.
Having (as you all know) worked lurd and used great ef
forts to build np our business, we were very careful in eel-cting
oui goods and have bought nothing but what we can recommend.
There are some special features noticeable in our house. One is
the great variety of styles and patterns we are able to offer for
selections of the public, and we confidently believe we can gratify
and satisfy any and every biyer. Another important feature is
prices; we have a large stock and we must not, and will not, let
any question of "price" hinder prompt Belling. To be on the safe
side, we have marked prices so close that the quotation of them
will carry conviction of cheapness to every man or woman who
sees our goods.
Our great Spring Stock is ready for inspection, every depart
ment being complete. Oar larg store room (which is three times
as large as any concern here) is filled to its utmost capacity with
Clothing, Gents' Furnishing Goods, Hats and Cap3. Whenever
you are ready for new Goods, come and see the
