One hundred and some odd pieces of woolona in trouser
lengths from which to inako selections. There's quite u dif
ferenco between selecting trousers from small samples and full
lengths. No chanco of mistaking the quality or getting a
false idea of tho pattern. No such liberal stock of piece goods
has over before been shown in Bisbee. No two patterns alike
that means exclusivctiess; not much to pay that's economy;

It was a clever man who thought, out Ves-Two. The idea
is so clever it has been patented. Ves-Two is two vests in one;
a reversible, turn either side out, fancy vest. One sido is dou
ble breasted, the other singlo breasted. Fancy worsteds und
silk vestiugs, each sido strikingly different from tho other.
And the Vea-Two costs no more than you usually pay for one
vest. We would suggest that yon see these Ves-Twoa anyway.
From $4 to $7.50.
