The eventful day and evening approaches. Preparations are in. progress. Commencement gowns liavo al ways been famous factors in the growth of this business. We have been learning things about them for a good many years, as fast and as thoroughly as hard study and ample opportunity would allow us. We have long since reached the point where we can teach others. One of tho things we learned a long time ago was that style need not be n matter of price. It's pretty hatd to say just what style is; but it certainly isn't measured by money. A iow-prlced fabric trimmed with dainty but inexpensive em broidery or laces may bo quite as stylish as one at three times the price; if it Is designed with taste and skill, and is cut and finished with caie. It's largely a matter of selection, and we select with a telescope for new ideas, and with a microscope for things "passe." There is here ns a result of this the best collec tion we know of sheer dainty fabrics, pretty filmy laces and deft needle-work embroideries, and ex quisite ribbons. Every thing that pertains to a commencement gown. Low prices, medium prices, and high prices. All prices, except UNFAIR prices. The desirable fabrics are: WASH CHIFFONS IS Inches wide. 31c. Me, 40c, CSe, C9c, 75c the yard. PERSIAN I.AWNS-.12 Inches wide, 16c, 10c, ;3c, 31 c 39c, 49c, 50c the jard. BATISTH JTUI.Iy-32 Inches wide, 19c, 23c, 31c, 39c, 10c the yard.

Tho speaker refened to His teachings, sao rlllees and rulings and .said we have the type of these olllces In their unity and destlnctionat aspects. This proves that Christ is qualified to be the Sav iour ol mankind, but man must havu the correct teachings of God and Him self, the proper atonement and the right conception of the law ar.d must jeoelvo those teachings from Jesus i Christ.
