calling the attention of seiners in the

islature forbidding the use of seins,
etc., on the closedi days between sun
set Saturday and sunrise 1.Vednesday.
Mr. :Little states that a number of

piression from the 'law on page 271 of
the Acts of 1919 that -thme weekly closed
season for seining is not in effect he
tween -September 1 and May L. Mr.
ILittle holds the oiiposite view and has
'been sustainedl in his position b~y the
chief game warden, A. A. Richardson,
whlo has written him to warn -those
who violate the law, in this respect
that they are inviting -prosecution. Mr.
(lbiehardson also qulotes an o'pinion
along the same line by the attorney
general of thme state.

The exceptional design and the magnificent manner
in which the finish of this suite has been handled has
paved the way for the comparison of prices of other
suites, at the price which we now offer this suite. This is
a value that cannot be equaled. The bow-end bed, full
vanity dresser and full size chifferete all bespeak the ut
most in charm and beauty. The interiors throughout are
stained an attractive mahogany. Drawers are well fitted,
non-binding and smooth-running. Made of selected stock
and finished in mahogany or walnut, this is a suite which
you may well be proud of.
Our display of bed-room furniture is the largest we
have ever shown---all marked at pre-war prices. Come
and see the values we offer and you will be convinced.

Higher Prices On Cotton
Materials Are Quoted
as a result of the continual advance in the cotton market
for the past fortnight. And it stands to reason that manu
facturers, who now pay around 1,9c for raw cotton instead
of I c a short time ago, will have to put their prices on
a relative basis. We are fortunate at present to have a largg
stock of cotton goods bought when such materials were at
lowest ebb. But, of course, when this supply is gone,
prices are bound to be more. The point is---buy while
these supplies are available at these prices.
