When a man Comes to US for Clothes, we expect him to have confidence in us and in our
statements, and we mean to deserve such confidence. P ,You may not think of it, but it does make
a big difference to you who makes the clothes you wear, especially if the maker is willing to tell you what he
makes them of and how. P Lots of men, in buying Clothes, are not half particular enough about
quality; they will buy almost anything that looks stylish, and fits; especially if the price is low, jf" That IS
wrongBe ' sure first of the quality you are getting. Is it all wool? Is it well tailored? A price means
nothing unless you know what you' are getting for it. . In this store we want you to know what you're getting-for
your money. We are not afraid to tell you, either. Ask if the goods are all wool; ask if they're tailored

ago, when be and his wife moved
to Fulton, where they lived happily
until her death, since when he has
prayed to die. Mr. Morris' death
was due to general deouity and si
The deceased had been a member

member of the Christian Church
for the past thirty-five years, and
was always in active service until

Readily Yield to Soothing, Healing
Treatment of Hy-o-mei.
Bronchial troubles are purely local
They cannot be helped by stomach
dosing. They are caused by irrlta
tion in the air passages and can be
relieved and cured by medicated air
alone. In this lies the secret of the
great success of Hy-o-mel In the treat
ment of bronchial troubles. ,
The first breath of Hy-o-mel's rued
icated air soothes the Inflammation,
stops the cough, and relief soon be
comes permanent and a cure results.
Ify-o mel has made many remark'
able cures In the worst and most
chronic forms "of bronchial troubles
and Is sold by the lied Cross Phar
macy with the same guarantee as
they give when Hy-o-mei Is purchased
for catarrh, that is, to refund the
money In case the remedy does not
give satisfaction. The complete out
fit costs but 81.00.
