'"PT.TT't.'' M""1' $7.50, $10 And $12.50 All the Ladies' High Grade Jackets left in stock have been grouped iuto three great lots and will be offered at the above figures to close. These three lots represent garments that actually sold at from $12.50 to $25.00 each, this season, aud at the new prices $7.50, $10.00 - $12.50 each, are the greatest bargaius that ever came from a Scrautou Cloak Department. In point of materi als, st3de, tailoring or general get-up, they cannot be surpassed in elegance for any amount of mouey. You can depend on being properly fitted if you call today, but sizes are low in some styles, and when the smartest garments of the day are offered at the very height of the season, at fiom 35 per ceut. to jo per ceut. below actual values, the prospect for keep ing sizes intact for many days is slim indeed. Of Course We Have Jackets, Capes, Etc, for much less money, but to those who believe that good thiugs are cheapest in the end, we say, don't miss looking at these Jackets now offered at $7.50, $10.00 and $12.50 Globe Warebotise D D n 111 il ' C Bronchial D It U fill OTroehes the popular cure for IRRITATED THROATS. fit llintlB every Signature that West Scrmitoniiint will not fall to liberally remember In some manner nn Institution which has done so much good In inch1 midst. sociKTins iji,urr oitichhs. ltegulnr meetings of Dow I Punt lodge, No "0, Older Anieiioun Ivoiltes, and Washington Camp, Xo 178, I'ntilotlc Oidei Sons of America, who held last evening In Co-opcrntlo and lied Men's halls rospectlvelv.
