The lawn Gentlemen Are you above practicing a little good judgment, and economy that entails no sacrifice whatever the purchase ot your wants. Surely the time has come when common sense ought to prove more potent than empty sentiment, and when the idea that only exclusive orators can cater to the minds of gentlemen should be set aside in the face of positive proof to the contrary. That's how we suit, and we're happy to say that hundreds of men who are careful about personal appearance, now look at the matter Irom the same standpoint. If, however, you are still among the doubters, will you kindly do us the favor of calling on Saturday ? We believe we'll be able to show you enough then to convince you of your error.
