"Money," said the philosopher, "may
often do more harm than good. Sometimes
the mighty dollar Is a man's worst enemy."
'Yes," answered SenatorSorghum,"and
I often feel a number of people love me for
the enemies I have made."
But he did not mention what a staunch
friend his Sterling Bicycle had always
been to him.

manager has just lately been married."
Head Salesman: "Yes; oh yes. Sterling
bicycle people are to blame for that."
Purchaser: "That's Interesting; what
did they have to do with It ?"
Head Salesman for P. C. & M't'g Co.:
"Well, you see. he took the young lady
out on the Sterling Tandem we have here,
and It ran so easy he thought she was
doing all the work, and the same thing
was passing through her mind. They
both thought how nice It would be to have
things always that way. They didn't
know those Sterlings were to blame."
Purchaser: "Well, I guess you can set
up that sameSterling wheel for me."

ISN'T EVERYTHING to good
storekeeping ; even a good salesman
falls when he tries to sell, cautious
ly, clothing that isn't made as it
should be. In the long rm only
the best clothing pays; rsreclally
when the best clothing can be had
at the price of the next best. Our
clothing is so well made, so at
tractive In appearance, and looks so
desirable that It requires less energy
and breath and persuasion on the
part of the salesman to sell It.
After we have sold It once, we
cm sell It with still less effort to
the same customer. It Is the kind
of clothing that brings your custo
mer back again and again the kind
with which we can build up a last
ing trade. And that Is what we
are doing In all our lines.
