OUR ANNUAL AFTER-XMAS CLEARANCE SALES
IN WHICH PRACTICALLY THE
ENTIRE STORE PARTICIPA TES
THE lines in which repricing has taken place are. many and varied in fact, too
varied to permit of itemizing or entering into detail in but few instances. The
merchandise in all cases is thoroughly good and desirable, and but for the fact that our
stocks must present complete assortments at all times would not be reduced.
Opportunities for economizing are many; especially do we emphasize the buying
advantages to be found in
Men's, Women's, and Children s Ready-to-wear Apparel.
ARMY OF WAIFS BECOMES
Saks & Company Make Annual Distribution of Over
coats and Other Clothing to Needy Boys.
An army of small boys one hundred
strong, some In tattered clothes, soma
with broken shoes, and all with hands In
pockets and collars turned up, for none
wore an overcoat, were marshaled Into
line on Seventh street, for Saks & Co.'s
annual Christmas gift of clothes and
overcoats, at 10 o'clock Christmas morn
ing Half an hour later one hundred "little
millionaires" began to file out of Saks &
Co 's Pennsylvania avenue entrance, each
clad In swagRer boy's overcoats and
many in new shoes, new hats, and new
ties. The waifs In the Seventh street
line ecd the big policemen with respect
and awe, but the "little millionaires"
that came out the Pennsylvania avenue
doors almost pushed the cops oft the
curb And yet the one hundred boy
waifs and the one hundred "little mil
lionaires" were the same.
Saks & Co. were distributing their an
nual Christmas gift of one hundred over;
coats to boys who did not have any-but
deserved to have them. Not only were
overcoats given, but many of the boys
whose clothes were worn Vvere provided
w 1th a brand-new outfit, from Blockings
And to add to the little fellows' Joy
Joseph I Saks, who was In personal
charge of the distribution, had his pock
et full of dollar bills, some of which
he, from time to time, handed out to the
brightest of the little band. Isaac Gans,
general manager of Saks-& Co.. stood by
like a twentieth century Santa Claus,
and with a benevolent eye carefully
tennned each comer.
One small chap came by stamping his
feet with prldo as he snuggled In his new
overcoaj, but the feet were encased In
broken and worn shoes. Mr. Gans' be
nevolent eye spied the broken shoes.
"Here. Mr. Phillips," he called. "This
lad needs a new pair of shoes." So back
again the boy went with Mr. Phillips, of
the men's furnishing department, and
was fitted with a new pair of shoes, after,
-which he went out to Join the army of
"little millionaires" on the Avenue.
"That Is right." said Mr. Saks, "we
don't want one to get by without every
thing, from shirts to shoes, that he needs.
Each one of these cases." Te continued,
"has been carefully looked up and re
ported upon by the Associated Charities
at our request, and all of them are de
serving. Wc find this year that necessi
tous conditions are not due near so much
to Intemperance as to slcknesa in h
Jdpiy, and especially to tuberculosis

third annual Christmas gift of Saks &

tablished by Isadore Saks, the founder.
Among tho employes who helped Man
ager Gans In the distribution were the
following: George 'Daniels, clothing de
partment: Samuel L. Phillips, men's fur
nishing department; Samuel Spltzer, shoe
department; Edward Nllsson, hat de
partment; H. N. Ober, sporting goods
department; J. D. Hughes, window dress
ing department, and Sol Breslauer.
Many visitors called while the boys
were In line, among them being O. E.
Darnall, superintendent of the National
Training School for Boys. As Mr. Dar
nall watched the transformation of the
little army of waifs Into the army of
"little millionaires," he philosophically re
"It may be true that the clothes do not
make the man, but the clothes certainly
go a long way toward making the boy."
And the army of "little millionaires"
no doubt thought so, too.
To the generosity of Saks & Co.,
Ronald Spltzer, son of Samuel Spltzer,
one of the buyers for the establishment,
added a Jar of coins he had saved while
ill. He expressed a wish that the money
be given to the poorest applicants.
Nearly 23.900 children have now been
sent to Canada from England through

VEST POCKET ESSAYS
New Year's Resolutions
At this particular period of the year
the New Tear's resolution begins to oc
cupy the attention of a great many citi
zens of varying prominence and sobriety,
The New Tear's resolution is a super
stition to the effeot that between 11 p. m.
and midnight on December 31 of each
year, a backbone composed of gelatine
and putty will suddenly stiffen up and
become so Inflexible that its possessor
will be enabled to say "No and stick to
it for years at a time.
Acting on this superstition, men who
cannot exist throughout the year without
a drink before and after each thirst, re
solve1 never to drink again; while men
whose mouths would feel like an extinct
and unfilled crater without cigars in
them, declare that henceforth and for
ever they will remain outside of the
Amalgamated Order of Human Chlm
neys and will use the money thus saved
to buy houses and farms.
Sad to say, most of these1 resolutions
do not last over forty-eight hours. There
are many reasons for this. In the first
place. It is true that between 11 and 13
o'clock on the night of December 31,
men find It easy to refrain from drink
and smoke, because, they are usually
full of both at that time. If there was
come method of continuing this hour In
definitely, a great many tender little re
solves would not be drowned at an early
Another reason is the fact that reso
lutions go Into the game with no prac
tice. A. man who wouldn't play football
without looking up the rules will start on
a dry year with no practice whatever.

TARS ON WAR SHIPS
ENJOY A DAY OFF
Potato and Sack .Races on
Decks Attract Throng.
New York. Dec. 25. The "tars" of nine
of Uncle Sam's fighting craft gave their
Christmas entertainments this ofternoon
on board their ships at the Brooklyn
Navy Yard. Some 1,500 visitors were re
ceived during the day.
On board the Culgoa, 100 persons were)
lined up about the deck, viewing with
interest the wild antics of flvo of the
sailors, each rolling a potato around the
deck with his nose. Half way around the
deck one, who had led the rest, lost
sight of his potato, and finally sighted it,
too late to recover It. as It went over
board. The winner, who negotiated the
circuit In ten minutes, was loudly cheered.
On the Delaware the feature was a
fack race, with a dozen entrants, who
struggled along the deck, some on their
backs, othtrs on their sides, but most of
them trying to stand, so it seemed to the
spectators, on helr heads. One man. who
lay on his side and rolled the entire dis
tance around the deck, was disqualified,
although he was first across the line.
This was followed by a three-legged
race, to the tune cf "Yankee Doodle."
The other ships holding similar enter
tainments were the Dixie, Louisiana,
South Dakota, Topeka, South Carolina,
Vermont, and the Connecticut.
Three hundred and fifty sailors, on
shore leave, went to the Navy Y. M. C.
A., where they spent several hours laugh
ing at vaudeville artists.
Mrs. Russell Sage paid all costs of the
entertainment, but was unable to be pres
ent, owing to a slight Illness. A large
bunch of American Beauty roses was
purchased and sent to her. with Christ
mas greetings from the sailors.
GEBMANS PLANNING EEUNI0N.
Former Residents of Llbenau, Han
over, Preparing? BIr Banq.net.
Germans who have immigrated to this
city from the little town- of Llbenau,
Hanover, Germany, are preparing to hold
a bis banquet In the near future. Plans
are now In embryo, and there Is some
question as to whether they will be suc
cessfully carried out. Prominent among
these who are arranging' for the banquet
is Dr. George H. Heltmuller.
Although the town of Llbenau Is very
small, many persons have emigrated from
it to the United States. It is estimated
that there are between 300 and 600 natives
of the German town now residents of
this city. An attempt Is being made
to arouse the Interest of Germans of tho
city In the proposed banquet. If a suffi
ciently large number of guests can be
procured, the banquet will undoubtedly
be held very soon.

Mr Maurice Egan, the American Min

Another reason Is the fact that men of
weak and wabbly wills attempt too much.
Such men should begin by swearing off
on Welsh rarabits for a year. When this
has been accomplished, let them swear
off on mince pie of the intoxicating va-
rlety. They will then find if easy to re

by the fourth year they will be able to
