"Men of this State fought splendidly
in the Thirtieth, the irghty-fIrst, the
Rainbow and other divisions, in the
navy and in the marine organizations.
These mon dedicated their lives to the
great cause of universal justice. It is
due them that the memorial be crect

that w erect it, else we shall suffer be
caure of duty and appreciation ne
gle'.ed, of inspiration lost. Those who
suffered the untold miseries of muddy
fields and battle Perils, those who
traveled over the treacherous seas
will ever be remembered gratefully by
us all. This memorial is -but. one tok
en of this reniembrance.
The work and sacriflees of our wo
men have made a brilliant page in our
history. Without their unilled assist

courage, ite mnortle of ou r ighti ng

woni would have been battles lost.
Shmali1 this lhapter of our history be
neglected? The memorial building
will keep the facts fresh in mind.

Each Department is this season attempting to surpass anything that
even this store has ever before accomplished in the way of up-to-the
minute style show.
The war is over. The women sacrificed nobly while it was going
on. But now "on with the dance" and on with all those pretty dress
embellishments that are so dear to the heart of every real woman.
