He has a good deal surer thing than Springfield has. Still, for the small inch or so of waterfall which we have had, Spring field is duly thankful. In any event we may right fully expect more rain from now on. You had better get an UMBRELLA. When you get it, get under it. It is good for sun as well as rain. When the man comes to borrow it, say "no, my friend, no chestnuts this time of year. Go to The When as I did, and buy yourself an umbrella. You can get them there in every variety and at different prices." But there is an umbrella of which we make a specialty : the Star, No. 140, in sizes from 2S to 32, at the low price of $1 00 Besides we have Alpacas, Scotch Ginghams, and a large line of Silk Umbrellas at prices that will astonish you.
