and Comfort- Great Improvement
Manufacturers have striven for years to produce a Union Suit that does not gap or chafe or bind in the crotch. They met
with indifferent success, however, until a practical underwear cutter in the employ of the Ccoper Underwear Co.. invented and
patented the "Klosed Krotch" Union Suit illustrated in these cuts. This crotch fits more comfortably than a pair of drawers, and stays closed under any
and all conditions. It, at last, solves the problem and gives complete underwear comfort and satisfacton
The top cut shows fine summer weight knitted fabrics in full ankle lengths and either rxx
jQng or short sleeves: perfect fitting, very comfortable and durable at a suit - - tPl.UU
The lower cuts illustrate the same idea as applied to the
AtMetLic Uimioim mit
Made up in true athletic models, in. fine woven nansook and crossbar fabrics without sleeves and with
wide knee length legs. Note the Klosed Krotch principle and how it permits the freest and easiest
movements of the body and still remains closed and comfortable.
This is without question the best Union Suit ever made, a wonderful imorovement (M ((
over all others. Try One price

A Beautiful and Impressive
The Firsl Presbyterian church was

Sunday morning when the Baccalaureate
sermon was preached to the pupils of
Madison Female Institute. Dr. R. II.

University, delivered ihe sermon, which
was able, interesting, edifying. It was
couched in choice words and delivered
in Dr. Crosslield's inimitable manner.
It was a beautiful and impressive ser
vice and a great crowd was present. In
facl the capacity of the church was
more than taxed "He Led Captivity
Captive and Brought Rich Gifts to Men,"
was the doctor's theme, and after telling
of the dark days of the primeval age, he
showed that Christ'scoming had brought
oivilualion, liberty and all the good and
great privileges we now enjoy. Perfect
atlention was given ihe speaker and
there was general regret when he brought
to a close his masterly effort. The mu
sic was a delightful feature of the ser
vice, many of the best singers in town
taking part. The M. F. 1. pupils were
all dressed in snowy while aDd after
marching inlo the church, singing as
ihey came, occupied front seats. They
presented a beautiful and inspiring pic
ture and one that will not soon be for
gotten. It was a happy day to those who
will soon leave the "Hill School" to
cope wilh the sterner problems that are
sure to confront them. They are well
equipped to combat ihem. thanks to Dr.
Cassaday and his splendid corps of

New Site for Camp Daniel
The Slate Executive Committee of the
Y. M. C. A. through Stanley A. Harris,
its Boys' Work Secretary, has purchased
a new site for Camp Daniel Boone. The
camp which has been located at Brook
lyn Bridge on the Kentucky River, is to
be moved 'this year to the mouth of
Marble creek, which is to be its per
manent home. The committee has pur
chased the farm of Jno. Carroll al the
mouth of Marble creek. The farm con
tains 15 acres and lies along the oanks
of Kentucky River for almost a mile.
with one of the prettiest valleys on the
entire river Al the lower end of the
farm where Marble creek empties into
the river is the camp site. A valley 400
feet wide at this point provides excellent
loom for ball grounds, tennis courts and
athletic field. The cliffs across the river
from the camp raise perpendicular out
of the water loa height of some 300 feet
lo the northwest the cliffs of Marble
creek give a roost picturesque view,
while to the south and east the river
valley, and a beautiful woodland hill
side of forty-five acres complete ihe most
The new site has several advantages
over the Brooklyn loratit n.lt has a good
sand bar for swimming, a more excel
lent fishing grounds cannot be found on
the river, il is much more centrally
located for the whole territory, and is
reached directly by the L & A. division
of the L. & N. Railroad at the Marble
creek station, six and one-half miles
from Kicholasville, without the four
mile hike formerly enjoyed (?) by the
bojs Altogether the site is quite ideal.
Camp Daniel Boone is conducted by
the State Committee of the Y. M. C. A.
for all the boys of central Kentucky, and
more than two hundred boys attended
last season. The camp opens this year
on June 12th and will be in continuous
session until July 21th.
