Tho work of the season Is adminis
tered under two heads popular lec
tures and entertainment and the sum
mer school The lectures and enter
tainments vary greatly but are always
pleasing and profitable This week
the general topic wns The Aftermath
of the AVar We have listened to
much on this subject that seems safe
sound and conservative but opinions
are widely divergent and wbile an
occasional speaker claims to under
stand the whole iproblems of World re
construction and adjustment he usual
ly is the most unsatisfactory and mis
leading to the man who thinks but
it Is well to hear a matter discussed in
all its phases and -viewed from all
angles Chautauqua is an open forum
for the expression of opinion and the
promulgation of ideas The richest
feast on this years program is the
New York Symphony Orchestra This
great organization has a six weeks

unable to see where tho monev will
come from for the coming year unless
the voters approve this 3 mill levy
Tho fixed school levy plus a practical
ly flxed tax dupllcato confronted by
I the high prices of tho war meant bond
issues and borrowed money until in
many cases those procedures ran up
ifaunsi a stone wall
Boards of education were hoping
that tho legislature would And a way
out so that more school funds would be
available But tho legislature alwavs
takes the easiest way out It has fail-
Prof I L Ullery of Auoka Minn ed to solve our tax tangle and has only
offered tho schools mere patch work in
the tax law A year ago it allowed
upon tho approval of the voters and
emergency levy of 2 mills but for
only one year leaving boards to infer
that a real solution would be reached
later It was not reached except in
this way If the voters of a school
district approve it the board may
make the levy as stated above
So here we are with debts and bnmls
to bo paid and the schools to be
ated and without the money to do it
unless you authorize by your vote
your board of education to make this
levy Is it not good business to pay
as we go Do you not want good
schools for your boys and girls Then
vote to permit tho board of education
to do what you expect it to do Is
not money Invested in school children

No one needs to be told that every

did before the war Of course It is
only reasonable to expect that it costs
more to operate our schools than it
did formerly and such is tho case
But the tax law by which the funds are
raised for operating our schools was
made in 1911 and has remained sta
tionary ever since Property valua

You Will Save Good Money
T ri
Of laic there has been a great deal
of talk about the reduction of prices
and some large stores in the larger
cities have been selling goods at so
called greatly reduced prices As an
intelligent observer and reader you
understand that these reductions have
been made in most cases where the
margin of profit has been too large in
the place
We have been inarkfng our goods
very closely right along and there
fore could not make similar reduc
However we assure you that tho
close prices we are now quoting are
far below some of these so called re
duced prices and you save money in
buying here
We still have a few good Business
Suits at 18 20 25 to 28
Fine Dress Suits in plain or mixed
at 28 30 35 to 42
Wo offer the best made by the Clothcinft House at
from 42 to 48 These suits compare well with the so
called sffM to 7 suits advertised by some stores even at
their redureil prices you still save a good sum by buying
here And so with other lines Shirts Ties Underwear
Collars etc Linen Collars have been advertised by some
at reduced prices from 30c to 25c when our price for
exactly the same collar has never been over 25q They
sold them too high or their reduction was of the so called
kind The result was visible in Canfleld Why we sold
more than twice the number of collars shirts ties and
more clothing than any other year And if you have not
found this out yet come in and youll soon be convinced
that avc have the goods and the low prices
A delayed shipment of Ladies Silk Hosiery which
we bought last summer has just arrived and you can buy
