TRASH fills (he markets to the brim, and it sometimes overflows into the lap of the public, to a shriek of "Low Prices." We point a distinction. We have never known the underwear markets to hold so much of worthlessness. Yellowed coltons, skimpy, hurried, careless workmanship; the indifferent "throwslp'gether" of the underpaid worker; ragged scams and raw edges?the city is full or such. It has not even the excuse of cheapness; nearly full prices are exacted. How These Garments are Prepared.

Yet our prices are very low?low even in comparison with unworthiness. For this reason:? The Magnitude of Our Order was such that a new standard of prices is created. Ordinary transactions cannot be used as a criterion when the combined demand of our two stores seeks, indulgence. Thousands of pieces were unboxed last Monday, vet they formed little more than a good beginning. More has come, more will come, new and eve new, large cases of them through The Very Newest Embroideries and Insertings Pass to You at Newly Little Prices Miles and miles of Excellent New Embroideries and Insertings are here at prices at least a full third less than regularly asked for equal qualities.

Iiis conci r a are models of good form ?hd gootl taste in this respect, and that Is one reason why the coming of Sousa is an event in the musical season that arouses great enthusiasm. A'distinctive feature of the concerts of Sousa and his band In addition to the liberality and grae ful courtesy of tho conductor In gratifying the w shes of his public In the matter of end >i *, is the fact that there ? no tedl waits between numbers, a Sousa cm cert being in reo * tj a ?
