So Much Good
Dogs Do Think and Teach
Lessons to Grown Folks
A doctor tells us of a dog he found disabled
by the roadside with a broken leg, which he set and
bound up. The dog showed his thankfulness in his
eyes and wagging tail.
A few weeks later he brought another limping
dog on three legs to him with a fourth leg broken,
and later on still another dog who was in pain all
to be cured.
Evidently these dogs and the great, strong St.
Bernards that go over ,thesnowy Alps on relief
expeditions and rescue lost travelers have something
of the Red Cross spirit in them worthy of admira
tion and encouragement.
We must not let dogs outdo us in helpfulness
for the suffering in these days of trial and need.
This Store is organized to serve.

A Word in Season as
to Good Blankets
and Quilts
A suggestion of snow in the air
makes such a difference in one's
viewpoint. How it docs shift one's
thinking in tho direction of warm
things, more especially blankets.
Just at this writing the blanket
and quilt stocks look as if they
were hit by a wind of faiily high
velocity, but' the tossing they have
been getting is due to its temper
ature and not to its force. There
has been a "drive" on blankets
and quilts, and it will keep on all
We can say we aro able to meet
it. At least we have a slock of
ample extent and undoubted qual
ity. At the prices, wo believe thero
is not a quilt or blanket in our
stock that can be improved upon.
There may bo blankets and
quilts that seem as good or better
than ours for tho same money,
but a comparison that is fair, in
telligent and thorough will always
reveal a difference, and the differ
ence is in favor of our goods. A
great many people have satisfied
themselves on this point, and we
are in a position to satisfy a great
many more.
Our prices for blankets of part
wool or all-wool begin at $7 and
go up to $45 a pair.
Down-flllod and lamb's-wool-filled
quilts are $10 to $45 each.
