The characteristics that struck
me niOft were thu reeept iveness, the
adaptability and the eager intelli
gence of the American women.
They are not afraid of new ideas
and seem always hungry to assimi
late more, and they have very de
cided views of their own. They are
keen conversationalists and love the
collision of mimic. They are pro
gressive and do not 'condemn a
theory because It is new, but im
mediately begin to analyze It and
put it to the test. They keep open,
nlfrt minds and seem always ready
to be convinced, if their shrewd
common sense so directs them.
They are not half so slow and cau
tious nri we British.

of individualism in dress to cross

Semi-Annual Furniture Sale.
That I shall have my teeth examined with a high degree
of regularity, as this action will, in the end, save me no little
pain and perhaps illness; that in my program of economy I
shall list the name of Dr. J. T. Holmes, as I can have my
teeth kept in the best of condition through Holmes' Dental
Service and realize a saving of no less than 50 percent; that
if I carry out this resolution religiously, I shall enjoy better
health, additional friends and greater prosperity.

IFull Upper and Lower Plate
It hardly seems possible that such a high grade
plate can be made for only $25.00. But the whole
story lies in the fact that when anything is purchased
in a large quantity the price is considerable lesa. All
our dental supplies are bought in large lots. For that
reason we are in a position to make in our own
laboratory, under the supervision of our ejepert, a
plate which cannot be equaled for the money. We
guarantee the materials and a perfect fit. See This
