Some thirty years ago a firm
in San lyrancisco sent to a Chi
nese house in; Canton the
smallest and . finest kind of
needle, as asample of our skill
in delicate handeraft. It was
returned to them with a hole
through the; point, which could
only be seen by a microscope.
We thought we were getting
things "down to a fine point"
when we set the prices onthe'
lotof
SofiiiTier Trousers
we've been showing and sell
ing lor 53.50, $5.00, and $6.50
per pair.
But our Rennodelling'. Sale.
has put a hole right through
that point.
We had* a lot of them. We've
got quite a number of pairs
yet. They've been ordered to
move to make room for heavier
weights that'll foe coming in in
a short time. So they're now
coaxing buyers at
$f.50,'52.5G, and $3.50
per pair.

• mediately;. recognized it,: although, he had
'not-seen it for about twenty years. : l ■
"Company I— Captain Bossieux-£was com
posed of Manchester men,; and served
through the war from Bull Run ...to Ap
