Among the crown jewels of the

of ruby tint which were always re
garded as especially valuable and
whenever the royal Jewels were placed
on exhibition these stones were under

time ago to dlspoee of the Jewels, and
az they were being prepared for ex

they were put through a wash which
unfortunately removed the color of the
precious stones and left them perfect

fabulous price as ruby diamonds, they
were sold simply as white stones.

«ipenewed hope, uudaunted courage, and continuous ef

Certainly the rigors of the year just passing were
many, and include about everything from ruinous low
prices on farm products to wage scale manipulation and
unemployment. But the measure of man's power of re
sistance, liis ability to receive financial pmiishment and
still recuperate has never been made.
Today the personnel of SKAGGS STORES ack

from this community in 1922. Our merchandising area
has grown very large this year. Every kind of income
and industry represented in the great Northwest was
served by oui- store. The fanning, the railroading, stock
raising, mining, fruit growing, lumbering, fishing and ev
en the commerce of the seas, have all played their part in
helping SKAGGS STORES give to each community uni
form low prices, based on a general low overhead cost.
We enter the New Year with the determination that
