One of the first important lessons to learn about Boys' Clothing is that reliable fabrics' and good tailoring at fair
reasonable crices, aie by far more satisfying to purchasers than are the imny inferior grades at a less price.
Try our Fence Climbers. Novelties for children.
Thoroughly .meritorious knee and long pants suits for boys of all ages, made to order, baaring oar label and

Would you prefer superior merchandise sold truthfully or the inferior grades sold by sensational methods.
The former are our chief inducements, the latter abound everywhere.
