little fellow had an ample supply of
matches. His father was notified bv

About Capes
and Jackets.
It's hard to tell which will be
worn most. So far we have
sold more jackets than capes.
But capes are stylish and con

goodly variety in both.
Silk Capes $2 to 5,
Spring Jackets $3.50
to $7 50.
Must mention petticoats too.
Here's a dozen styles at 75c.
to $2.50. All new, all well
made, all cheap at *he prices
we ask.

floor. We have sold more car
pets since January than we
sold during the spring season
last year. This is mentioned
only as an indication of the
popularity of this department
Measure your rooms and we
can tell you at once how best
to lay the carpet and how much
it will cost. Have just opened
a handsome line of Portieres.
Carry window shades, curtain
poles,lace curtains and mattings
and will be glad to show them

low prices, but really you must
see the goods to fully appre
ciate them. Believe us we'll
be glad to show you whether
you want to buy or nott
to your interest as well as
to have you acquainted
the sort of shoes we sell,
