"I as little expected to get a suit and top coat
ready to wear, to fit me so perfectly at these
moderate prices, as to -hear of a night watch
man dying in the daytime,"
facetiously remarked a prominent professional man in our
store, yesterday, who had just bought a Fifteen Dollar
fancy worsted suit and a fine Vi
cuna silk-lined Spring overcoat
bearing this famous Label, f7
There are thousands of men in
this city just as fastidious as this
gentleman is whom we can con
vince just as readily if they will but come to our store

superiors of the best made-to-measure garments that can
be produced in this city, but you do not have to take it
on trust. Come and see for yourself.

WHOOPING COUGH.
I had a little boy who was nearly
dead from an attack of whooping
cough. My neighbors recommended
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. I did
not think that any medicine would help
him. but after giving him a few doses
of that remedy I noticed an improve
ment, and one bottle cured him entire
ly. It is the best cough medicine I
ever had in the house. J. L. Moore,
