IN" SELKCT1KG a Gas Range there are a number
t>f points to consider?such as, reputation of the
range, its baking qualities, construction, appear

Selection from our display automatically insures the
buyer against questionable Gas Ranges. Likewise,
arrangements are very easily made for deferred
payments, when desired. - .
Inspection will show that our Gas Ranges embody
in practical form not a few?but ALL?of the fea

WHY the Gas Ranges Our Stocks
Offer Are Such Splendid Bakers:
The Secret is in the scientific system of oven-heat cir

Note how the heat enters the oven at both sides and
through the bottom and circulates to every part of the
oven, assuring uniform, evenly browned, baking. This is
a point you cannot afford to overlook in buying a range.

February Is the Month That Women's Thoughts Turn to
Reliable Furniture and Rugs
And at the Moderate Prices There Are
Greater Values Here Now Than Will
Be Obtainable Again in Many Months
Here is a display of Furniture and Floorcoverings that we be
lieve will find instant favor with all lovers of attractive and com
fortable homes, because of? '
The Beautiful Designs possessing all the merit of the
master periods from which they are taken,
The splendid quality of all materials that enter in
the workmanship,
The unsurpassed construction of every piece of Fur
niture and every piece of floor-covering or bedding,
The fact that you are assured of satisfactory service
in every selection.
But, most important of all, do not overlook the very moderate
prices now prevailing.
If you are furnishing a large house, a small apartment, one
room or only making additions to the home that is already fur
nished, you will find it most profitable to select here antf now.
Very Advantageous to You
?is the receipt of many delayed shipments of Furniture which
we had given up all hopes of getting. These are from long stand
ing orders and are marked at the prices that prevailed when the
orders were placed.
He steadied himself before the
washstand and forgot all save the
needs of the moment. Stripping- ofT
his shirt, with a novel sense of
fright at seeing*his own blood, he
bathed his face. neck, and body.
The wound in his left side was hot
and stiff?a cut as narrow as t&
small knife, not fatally deep. How
ever, it seemed to shatter his entire
nervous system. He felt bulky,
strangely tired. Now it began to
bleed afresh as he passed the,cool
ing towel over it. lie was combing
his hair when the doctor arrived.
Morna did the talking.
"River ruffians," concluded the
1 _
physician. "I know all about them.
"Do you?" said Morna innocently,
with a shy light in her eye*.
It was daylight when Levington
slept. He had Room A. his allerre?i
wife safely bestowed in Room E.
It was still daylight when he wak
ened. There was no possible Joy in
life. Con'n mouth was metallic with
fever. Shadowed image* from the
night before drove a shudder across
his nerves. Out of this, somehow,
the matter of the plain envelop
came to mind?those instructions
which would bind him if he read.
It was as if the thought of this had
wakened him.
The Chinese had torn the cover
inp. but the content* had not been
what he wanted. Why. then. ha<i
March made so much of the matter?
Con wanted to reopen the envelop
here and now. He could not pay
why thouphts of the letter powr*
ed him. ?nd he frit rather trhamM
of himself in a peneral way. The
events of last nicht were too near
fo?- perspective, like a creat sor
