As a matter'of fact being well dressed isn't nearly so much a matter of money as of knowing how. You or any other man can dress well "and stoy well dressed if you buy CLOTIICRAFT. Clothcraft Clothes Style and Wool-$10 to $25 The point is right here: CLOT IIC It ATT CLOTH KH have stylet they are pure wool umintel ami tli y don't cost too luuclu They ell ut S10 to 825. They are the only clothes in the country that combine these three things. Some clothes have style and fotne all wool. Few have both. None other have both at $10 to $25. Here are the Secrets Clotuckai-t really holds all the secrets of dressing well at the prices the sensible man wants to pay. The output ii so largo that the cost is reduced and the makers, who have made good clothes longer than any others in America, have a numter of cost-saving processes and methods unknown in any other factory.

He then drank the mixture and calm ly lay down to die. Mrs. Gray, who is about 80, discov ered her husband and called a doc tor. The latter applied emetics. "Uncle Billy" seemed to rally during the afternoon, but at 10 o'clock p. m. Bank suddenly and expired.

Alma State Savings Bank, ALMA, MICHIGAN. Duggan's Evil Spirit. "I wish I had killed htm; I wouldn't have gotten any more." This remark, made by James Dug gan on his way back to jail after being sentenced to life Imprisonment for assault on Representative V. H. Schnntz at Lansing, would indicate that there was soiae motive which has not been disclosed for Dusgan's peculiar assault, though Dutrftan on the trial insisted to the contrary, say ing that he did not know why he at tacked Schantz. Tho case was given to the jury after the dinner hour Saturday, and after fifteen minutes' deliberation the jury came In with a verdict of guilty of assault with intent to murder. Judge Wiest Immediately called Dug gan to the bar and sentenced him to imprisonment for life at Marquette. Duggan asked to be sent to Jackson, but the judge told him he thought Marquette was a better place for him. Planned Disappearance. No further Investigation will be made by the Detroit police in the case of Frank S. Curtis, the mechanical engineer who disappeared from the Wayne hotel April 27 last. Capt. Mc Donnell has received a letter from New York from a man closely con nected with the Curtis family, and this man says that Curtis' family is con vinced that he is alive and well, that he diappeared of his own volition, and that the the disappearance was prob ably planned by him before he left New York on his trip west. "I was convinced right along that Curtis was alive and well," declared Capt. McDonnell. "Tho fact that he ! wrote po many letters before dropping out of sight aroused my suspicions, and the more we investigated the more convinced I became that there was something behind the whole mat ter and that Curtis had planned his disappearance."
