January SO is to be "Tag - Vour
Shovel"'' Day. The tag says, "Save
that shovel of coal." "Tag-Tour
Shovel" Day will be national in the
cities. Dr. J. A. C. Chandler has or- \
dered tags to be distributed among
the school children of this city. A boy
and a girl, to be selected probably by
scholarship, will tag the shovels of ?
(Jovernor Stuart and Mayor Ainslic.
Telegram from Washington to Fed
eral Fuel Administrator Byrd stated
that In that city tiie boy and girl from j
each school would late on the day of i
January :i0 escort the boy and girl I
who tagged the I'resident's shovel to
the White House. It suggested that he
have the superintendent of the ltich- !
1 mond schools select two students by ,
scholarship?a boy and n girl?to tag i
the Mayor's and the Governor's shovels. !
It Is presumed that the boy and girl
from each school will here late on the
day of "Tng-Your-Shovet" Day escort '
the two who earned the distinction of
tagging the shovels of the Mayor and
the Governor to the home of the Mayor !
and Governor.
It is desired that cities everywhere
hold a "Tag-Your-Shovel" Day for the
' conservation of fuel.

Crutclifield, who signified his intention
of protecting the public from the acts
of tho wayfarers. The men were
charged with vagrancy and placed under
fGOO bonds. After Attorney Uovenstein
stated that his clients owned property
of great_ value in Chicago, Justice
Crutchfield stated, "Well, ?;!00 will not
be too much. We put a poor "nigger"
I under 5100 bond.-' Another case in
volving gambling charges against the
jgypsies was continued to January 10.
Members of the tribe were also ar
raigned in Juvenile Court, charged
with contributing to the delinquency
of Mary Adams, charged with larceny.
The girl was placed under bond.
An appeal was notod.
The placing of the members of the
band under heavy bond almost per
suaded thern to "pull .' takes" and seek
another quartering place.

our profit in buying now

WELCOME NEWS it must be that one actually has?in the face of gen
erally high prices?a chance to save money in the buying of goods
one needs for immediate and future use. Patrons of Miller & Rhoads are
invited to visit the store these days of special January selling, and take
advantage of extraordinary shopping opportunities prevailing in nearly
every department.
These opportunities are especially rife in the sections of Women's
Muslinwear, on the second floor, of Rugs, Beds and Bedding Supplies on
the third floor, and of Sheets, Sheetings, Pillow Cases, etc., in the Base
ment, the Annual January Sales of which are now in progress.
Nothing new?this offering of special values at Miller & Rhoads
through the medium of these January Sales?but it amounts to practically
the same thing when confronted, as one is, with the probability that it will
be a long time, years probably, and then probably never again, before we
can again offer as good merchandise for the money as we offer now.
And this little word "now" has a big meaning; it must be taken in its
most serious literal sense. For quantities are, in many cases, limited, and
