being used for the purpose.
To write pan linen it was necessary to
have some colored fluid which might get

first ink used was probably some sort of
soot or lamp black, mixed with size or

ACbineee bride called uxn a foreign lady,
says the Hev. A. H. Smith. On entering
the room she deliberately turned her back
upon her hostess, and nude an elaborate
Obetaance. Of course the foreign lady was
amazed and annoyed; but she found out
the reason of the strange proceeding after
ward. The bride's conduct had conformed
to Chinese etiquette.
She had performed her obeisance her
k'o-t'-ou to the north because that is tli"
direction of the emperor's abode. If the
foreign lady was so ignorant as to stand on
the south side of the room, that was not the
bride'a concern. She knew, if her hostess
did not , in what direction to bow her head.

COMPARISON Tells the Tale.
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Men's Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Men's Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Men's Suits
with those others advertise at slO.OO; our line of 9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
otherjdealer.jdon't buy. Alle ask that you compare-nothing can be fairer.
