Talking about Clothing: Huve you t-vtr noticed what widely
different garments tor male w-ar come under this titl- f Evt-ry
man must have CI thing, but ihere are clothes an. I lth-s.
There are clothes that simpty saiisfy the demand for V;-iil
covering, and clothes again that gratify the taste that conirs with
culture and progress. By goud rigbts there onght to be no cloth
ing that does not come up to th latter standard. B;it there is.
We do not keep it, but you have seen it with its general appear
ance of slovenliness and ill-comfirt. You can see thar. kind of
clothing every day. It is not worth taking heme, but it is advrr
tised very extensively by some dealers who make a specialty of
shoddy clothing. We have clothing for all classes Merchants,
Artisans, Laborers, Clerks, etc You will find no trash or shoddy
clothing in our house. '
They Fit Well, Look Well, Feel Well.
We take justifiable pride in saying that we have no clothing
for any class or occupation that will not in every way particular
satisfy the taste of the buyer, and give him that sense of comfort
that is sever felt save in good fitting, well made clothing.
No merchant tailor
living can make better
garments. Your inspec
We wish particularly
to draw your attention to

fashionable suits rang
ing from S8 to $15 So
positive are we that they
are great bargains, that
we not only ask but wish
tou to take them home
and compare them with
suits costing from S3 to
13 more elsewhere.
Many of the choicest
buyers have been thus
convinced by the above
trial. A thorough exam
ination and comparison
in price, quality of goods
and m-ke up is all the
London IClothing Go.
Having (as yoa all know) worked hard and used gieit ef
forts to build up our business, we were very careful in 1-rcting
our goods and have bought nothing but what we canrecoaim-nd.
There are some special features noticeable in our house. One is
the great variety of styles and patterns we are able to offer lor
selections of the public, and we confidently believe we can gratify
and satisfy any and every buyer. Another important feature is
prices; we have a large stock and we must not, and will not, let
any question of "price" hinder prompt selling. To be on the safe
Bide, 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 Stcck is ready for inspection, every depart
ment beiDg complete. Our large 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 Caps. Whenever
you are ready for new Goods, come and see the
