PAGE 2 MISS MARY HOYT WIBORQ Y . E 4 Pay enough for clothes VOU may expect your clothes to cost more this fall than they did a year ago: but so does everything else. The main thing to consider isn't "How much do they cost?" but "How much do I get for the money?" That has always been the main thing in buying clothes anyway. You can judge for yourself what happens to merchandise when cost ot production rises. Some makers do all they can to keep the price down, with the result that the quali ty gets pretty bad. The clothes you will find here are the sat isfying kind. Clothes of known values; clothes that we know are going to give last ing service; clothes bought months ago at prices that mean big savings for our custo mers. You will share in these savings if you come here for that suit or overcoat. B. F. BEARD & CO.
