Leaders of Low Prices. Leaders of Fine Clothing.
Leaders of Latest Styles. Leaders in the Clothing Trade.
We Came to Rock Island to Stay and Stay We Will.
We brought the prices down and will keep them down; Not on Shoddy Clothing,
Trashy clothing or Rotten clothing, but Clothing that will bear the most critical in
spection in quality, make-up, trimmings, cut, style, fit, and last but not least
The Lowest Prices and the Largest Assortment.

being the secret of our success, we are bound to build up a GOOD BUSINESS

Talking about Clothing: Have you ever noticed what widely
different garments for ma'e ar come under this title? Every
man must have CI thin?, but there are clothes and clothes.
There are clothes that simply satisfy the demand for decent
covering, and clothes again that gratify the taste that comes with
culture and progress. By good rights there ought to be no cloth
ing that does not come up to thfs latter standard. Bat there is.
We do not keep it, but you have seen it with its general appear
ance of slovenliness and ill com furt. You can see that kind of
clothing every day. It is not worth takiDg home, but it is adver
tised very extensively by some dealers who make a specialty of
shoddy clothing. We have cloihiDg for all classes Merchants,
Artisans, Laborers, Cleras, etc You will find no trash or shoddy
clothing in our house.
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, ani give him that sense of comfort
that is sever felt save in good fitting, well made clothing.
They Fit Well, look Well, Feel Well.

We wish particularly
to draw your attention to
several lines of ultra
fashionable suits rang
ing from $8 to $15 So
positive are we that they
are great bargains, that
we not only ask but wish
vou to take them home
and compare them with
suits costing from f 3 to
15 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 make up is all tbe
London Clothing Go.
Having (as yoa all know) worked hard and used great ef
forts to build up our business, we were very careful in selecting
our 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 bayer. Another important feature is
prices; we have a large 6tock and we must not, and will not, let
any question of "price" hinder piompt selling. 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 SpriDg Stcck is ready for inspection, every depart
ment being complete. Our 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 Caps. Whenevrd

"Do yoa wish to know tbe quickest
way to cure a severe cold? We will tell
yoa. To care a cold qulrkly. it mutt be
treated before the coll hs become set
tled in the system. TLi can always be
done if yoa choose to, as salute io her
kindneas to man gives timely warning
and plainly tells yoa in nature's way,
that at a punishment for some indiacre
lion, you are to be sffltcted with a cold
unless yoa choofe to ward it off by
prompt action. Tbe first sj mptoms of a
cold, in most rases, is a dry. loud cough
and soeezing. The cough is soon fol.
lowed by a profuse watery expectoration
and the sneezing by a profuse watery dis
charge from the nose. In severe caes
there is a thin white coaling on the
tongue. What to do? It is only neces
sary to take Chamberlain's Couch Rem
edy in doable doses every hour. That
will greatly teasen the seventy of the cold
and io most cases will effectual! counter
act It, and cure what would have been a
severe cold within one or two dsys time.

" Continual dropping wears

The continual breaking of
lamp-chimneys costs a good
deal in the course of a year.
You can stop it. Get Mac
beth's " pearl top " or pearl
glass." Vou will have no more
trouble with breaking from
heat. ,You will have clear glass
instead of misty : fine instead
of rough ; right shape instead
ot wrong; and uniform, one
the same as another.
You will pay a nickel a chim
ney more; and your dealer
will gain in good-will what he
loses in trade; he will widen
his trade by better service.
