As soon as you are ready to dress better than usual, you're ready
to look at our line of men's suits and overcoats; you'll find that
you can get such clothes as you want, such as any man will be
proud to wear; perfect=fitting, tailored by hand, of the finest fab
rics, ready=to=wear, for a good deal less money than these specifi
cations indicate. We are showing a very fine of the celebrated
Hart Schaffner & Marx
clothes; there are no other clothes in the market so uniformly good
as these; none that can be so safely guaranteed to satisfy the
wearer. We make a specialty of these goods; you'll find this store
the right place for good clothes.
We're ready at any time to show you the right suit for you;
it's all picked out for you. We'll show you the famous little label
you've heard about.
A small thing to look for,
A big thing to find.
It pays to find it, for it stands for so much excellence in style,
quality, and service in clothes.

THE ARSENAL AT SPRINGFIELD
By Henry W. Longfellow
OH ART,KS FREDERICK JOHNSON In "Warner's
Library of tho World's Best Literature" t?ays of I^ong
fellow: "llis rclntl ill is i" the great body of readers.
Sympathy with the broadly human is one of the marks
of tho true poi t To put simple things Into graceful
and Intelligible i" tic form requires genius, for thou
sands try to do It every day and fall for lack of tho
special gift. Longfellow succeeded, and those who say
that Iiis themes and method are alike commonplace
forget that tho touch which Illuminates tho common
place is the most delicate in art."
HIS is the Arsenal. From lloor to ceiling, ?
Like n btigo organ, rise the burnished arms;
Hut from their silent pi pea no anthem pealing
Startles the villages with strange alarms.
AI?! what n sound will rise, how Wild and tlrenry,
When n death-angel touches those swift keys!
What loud lament and dismal miserere
Will mingle with their awful symphonies!
I hear even now the infinite fierce chorus,
The cries of agony, the endless gr ?an,*
Which, through the ages that have gone Defore us,
In long reverberations reach our own.
On helm and harness rings the Saxon hammer;
Through Clmbiic forest roars the Norseman's song.
And loud, amid the universal clamor,
O'er distant deserts sounds the Tartar gong.
I bear the Florentine, who from his paloce
Wheels out his battle-boll with dreadful din,
And Aztec priosts upon their toocallls,
Beat the wild war drums made of serpents' skin;
The tumult of euch sacked and burning village;
The shout that every praver Cor mercy drowns;
Tho soldiers' revels in the midst of pillage;
The wall of famine in beleaguered towns;
The bursting shell, the gateway wrenched asunder,
The rattling musketry, tbo clashing blade;
And ever und anou, in tone of thunder,
Tho diapason of the cannonade.
Is it, O man, with such discordant noises,
With such accursed instruments as these,
Tbou drownest nature's sweet and kindly voices,
And Jnrrest the celestial harmonies?
Were half the power Unit fills the world with terror,
Were half the wealth bestowed on camps and courts,
Given to redeem the human mind from error,
There were no need i>r arsenals nor forts;
The warrior's name Would bfl a name abhorred;
And every nation thai Should lift again
Its hand against a brother, on its forehead
Would wear forevcrmoro the curse of Calul
Down the dark future, through long generations.
The echoing sounds grow fainter and then coase;
And like a boll, with solemn, sweet vibrations,
? I hear onoo more the voice of Christ say, "Peacel"
f. Peacol^and no longer from its bra/en portals
Tho blast of war's great organ shakes the skies;
But, beautiful as songs Ol tue immortals,
Tho holy melodies of love arise.
The Brasil Lan flower known an the
fanning antelope Is so called because
Its white petals have a series of well
defined, dark colored lines and dots
In which the imagination can readily
trace the form of an antelope, with Its
limbs outstretched and head thrown
back, seemingly fleeing for its lifo. In
the "caricature plant" one species has
the imitative form on the petals, and
another has U outlined In the ribs and
?hading of the leaves.
The last mentioned curiosity bears
a remarkably well executed likeness
of tho Duke of Wellington and has on
at account been named "Arthur and
Is Nose," Among tho orchids the
imitative form is entirely different in
character, being exhibited in tho shape
of the flower itself. Some are exact
counterfeit/) of bees, butterflies, moths,
etc., while others tako upon them
selves the form of worms and beetles.
Naturalists bollove that In the llrst in
stance It Is nature's trap to lure other
bees, mothtt and butterflies, but In the
case of tho worm and the beetle, or
chids or those that are tho exact coun
terparts of toads, lizards and huge
spiders, they do not attempt to ex
plain,?fit Louis Globe-Democrat.
