THE JUNIOR MEMBER OF .
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

to carry them to Fairhope, paying him
$35 for the trip and expenses and
requiring him to remain at Fairhope
until the ferry arrived in the morn
ing. Wednesday the buyers began to di
vide their jmrchases and when they
took the stones to different jewelers
to be set in rings the jewelers sug
gst'ed' that the men go to the 3 and 10
and get rings already made up. Cap
tain Frank of the police department
was then interviewed and the police
of various southern cities were asked
to, keep a lockout for the two
strangers.
Yesterday morning the local- men
left for different points to take up
tjie search. It was reported yester
day afternoon that the strangers had
left New Orleans for Fort Worth, i
Texas.
It was learned yesterday that the
j two strangers were In Pensacola
; about a year ago and that their
names are Dansby and McAdams.
When they were here a year ago the
local boys were tipped off that the
strangers were crooked andany deals
that may have been pending were de
clared off. The men are said rn be
habitues of the gambling rooms at
Mobile and New Orleans.
