Children Haven't Any
Respect for Clothes.
They'll slide down a splintery
board in tlieir best trousers with an
innocent calmness that makes their
niother's hair slowly rise.
Now we doti't pretend to sell
boys' clothing that will withstand
the persuasivo power o nails when
the two corue together, but we do
sell the stoutest, strongest and best
stuff - we can flhd. We know just
about what boys need and for a
little mouey we can flt your boy out
with a suit that will last.
Haven't you had enough ill fit
ting clothing, Mr. Man, try a suit
of the Stein-Blbch raake this spring.
White lookiug at suits don't forget
the new spring soft bosom shirts.
