Dixie Hit of "SinbadT
"Rock-a-Bve Your Baby with a Dixie
Melody"?tnat's the line that gives this song
its title, and that's the place the Solid South
stands up and applauds. A Winter Garden
hit sweeping North, East and West, as well
as South. * ^V2560?75c
Here's "^The Daughter
?and every bit as sweet as her mother was be
fore her. A song already nationally popular?with
just such a dreamy lih and cadence as made its
namesake famous. Sung by Robert Lewis; wi*b ac.

weave fascinating Strains of the old "Rosie"
through the dominating melody of the new. On
the back, " Bye-and-Bye," a beautiful song of
soldier hope. A2561?75c

Good Tablecloths and
Napkins of Cotton
Made in Ireland and Scotland
When anything that enters into our
daily life, such as tablecloth and napkins,
becomes so high that it is not advanta
geous to buy them, what is the common
sense thing to do? It is to buy the next
best article?Cotton is the only substitute
for flax. Naturally the manufacturers in
Scotland and Ireland who have made it
a business all their lives to make table
cloths and napkins, do it a little better
than any one else. There is a vastly in
creasing use of the cotton articles, which
in these days naturally means, with other
causes, rising prices. You can save
enough on what we now offer to make it
well worth your while to buy now.
