Sunday night l?y J. G. Ilollada.v, secre
tary of the Navy V. M. C. A., Norfolk ,
proved to be very instinctive, as well
as interesting. The pictures brought
to the attention of the audience the
great work that is being done by th<
V. M. A., not only in the home land,
but "over there." Pictures of the navy |
were shown where the boats only a few j
years ago were considered masters of
the sea are now in the second class
in comparison with the enormous fight - !
ing machine that our government is !
turning out so rapidly.

The Example of France
Their League of l*ntriots in Paris, 4 Hue Kte. Anne, urges tho
French to endure without complaint the- restrictions imposed upon
them. One of the ten of their "Commandments" is as follows:
"(8). I)o not remain idle. According to your nge and you*
ability, work for your country. l)o not consume without producing.
Idleness is desertion."

Here Are Just the
Fall and Winter
you want?certainly?and at prices you
won't mind paying?if you BU NOW!
Most people visiting our Rug sections are
amazed at the variety and the excellent
qualities of Rugs we are able to exhibit,
despite war-time requirements and condi
tions which, for many months, have fore
shadowed marked curtailment, if not com
plete elimination of the output of this im
portant American industry.
The war, however, must be won, and our
government needs the factories that form
erly made Rugs for making woolen blankets
and uniforms for our soldiers and sailors.
Summed up, this means that in many in
stances the Rugs we now have on sale are
the last of their respective kinds we shall
have to offer for some time; also those
wanting new Rugs for this fall and winter
must get them now, or stand a big chance of
not being able to get them at all.
Before purchasing Rugs of any kind it
will be highly advantageous to see the beau
tiful displays here. Sec also the eleven big
show windows displaying 9x12 feet Rugs in
all grades from ?30.00 upward.
