began the khaki-clad one.
"Sure. What's the trouble'.'''
"Well, you see, I've been running
around town all day and I've spent all
my money, and I'm due back at Camp

The soldier. "The fare is only t'?0

'HOSIERY WEEK
*9
Which is L>ut Another Way of. Saying* That Vast Stocks of
Quality Hosiery for Summer Are Ready?at Most
Attractive Prices
THE reputation of Miller & Rhoatls as "the Hosiery Store" is well sus
tained in the new Summer Hosiery stocks assembled in good time for
this event. iLs significance centers in the fact that for one week we shall
feature HOSIERS", HOSIERY, HOSIERY?Hosiery of such qualities as
will be sure to serve you well, both in appearance and wear.
Another important feature of Hosiery Week?one many will reckon as most im
portant- is that the advancing prices of which we hear much about these days are
scarcely recorded in many of ill"1 offerings: some not at all. That's because the
Hosiery being featured was purchased by us months ago at prices much lower than
to-day's market, and arc priced lower for "Hosiery Week" than one will be able to
buy the same qualities for later. ? \
We therefore suggest that you come rr;ht in now and lay in your Hosiery supply
