GRAHAM, Mttnnuor. 3 doors south of Poatonioo, OF A SUIT ; Of Clothes is not always the true expres sion of its worth. It is equally true that a really good suit of Clothes cannot be sold for less than a certain sum. If you pay less you get less, and when you get down to a certain point what you get is worth nothing and your money might as well have been thrown in the street. The price range is adapted to every purse, and each price represents just what twice the amount would buy ol made-to-measure clothes. In buying these garments you get sterling value for your money and the price is held down just ns low as good clothes can be made for. If you seek to save a few dollars by cheaper garments you get worthless ones and all is wasted. We know this so perfectly well that without hesitation we say that we will give you back your money if you are dissatisfied. Mrs. G. M. Babbitt, of Kearney, is visiting relatives in town. Mrs. L. II.

Mile Fifi" which will be seen at the opera house on Tuesday, Jan. 2d is one of the pronounced comedy successes of the present season. It is very funny, most adroitly con structed and thoroughly Parisian in piquancy. It set te New York critics in a tumult of discussion, and even during the blizzardy period attracted such crowds that' the musicians were forced under the stage. It tells n lively story of a young married couple, a Parisian Vicomle and a Boston girl, who plot to obtain a divorce that they may obtain possession of the mar riage settlement, it being their plan to then re-marry and live happily thereafter. A scheming money lender plays a very important part in the farce and 60 dees the Felice Bergere chantuse from whom the' piece takes its name. 'Fifi' and the Vicomle have been very good frjens in the past but drifted apart at hs marnagp. lie re-appears 011 the scene at; a prittp.q.1 period and is discovered by the young wjfe under circumstances which compel her to make a serious effort to ob tain her freedom. Her breezy, amiable mother, who Ijas detpcted the bogus plot at its inception, re fuses to believe that the real quar rel is in earnest and everybody be comes at cross purposes with the result that comic complications fol low fast and furiously.
