THE FIRM OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND IS UNDERGOING AN OPERATION. People, generally suppose that when the demand is heavy that the price is high. Yet conditions that face the clothing buyer in this store are not running true to type. The demand for our suits this spring exceeds even that of a year ago still the prices arc lower and the value stronger than the people of this vicinity have seen for 5 full years. How do.we account for it? Easy. The demand per day is the re sult of the value we supply per dollar. Sounds reasonable so do our prices. GREAT DIAMOND MYSTERY DEEPENS Proving Old Adage That All That Bubbles Isn't Champagne. ' .The greatest diamond mystery of recent weeks deepened " considerably yesterday morning when a Pensaco itan returning from the west told of meeting: at Flomaton Messrs. fieorge Petrellis, Angrelo Griffin and C. K Sehadwho were about to separate In order to make a thorough search, of the southwestern section of these so-called United States in order to locate if possible two "slickers" who are alleged to have gipped them out of a sum variously placed at from $3,500 to $13,000. It appears, as the lawyers say when they want to cloud the issue, that two strangers giving their names as Morris and Nichols regis tered at one of Pensacola's most in clusive hostelries last -Thursday night and. on the following day proceeded to make friends with "the boys" around the corner, at the fruit stand and at the lunch room. In a ouple of days more the strangers intimated that they knew where there were some first class diamonds which they could sell at an" extremely reasonable price inasmuch as production had cost practically nothing and t'nele Sam needn't split on the luxury tax. The deal was rapidly consummated and a reputable jeweler was asked to determine if the sparklers were all that they vere al leged to be. ITe said they were. Thereupon the trio of buyers and the pair of sellers retired to a con venient place and the money and stones changed hands. That night Suits, $25 to $55.
