Straw Hats
That Fans Fancy
YOU can be pretty sure when a straw hat passes the
critical inspection of the baseball fan that it has the
style and quality you want. Such men arc keenly critical
of their clothes'as well as baseball plays. The fact that
a good many of them have already been here for new
1920 straws is an indication of which way the wind blows.
SOME of the new straws are in the windows today.
There'll be many more of them when Old Man Win
ter leaves this part of the country. But you needn't wait
for hot days. Come now while we have such great stocks
of styles and braids in your exact size.
NEW Yacht shapes in Sennits, Tuscans, Splits, Swiss
Twists, Yeddos and many others. Soft or stiff
