IANOTHER BOMBSHELL! | Again we tear things apart in the clothing trade by the offer of men’s and youths suits of the finest grades made in America at about half prices. Thought we nad touched the limit in value giving in our offer of the past few weeks. But here's another surprise as great or greater. THIRTY-FIVE HUNDRED SUITS, [an entirely new lot from a tailor who doesn’t advertise to general public but who is !recog:nized by the trade as one of the four or five leading makers of fine clothing in [the city of New York. These suits show his genius as a designer and his scrupulous [care as a tailor very plainly. There is no finer clothing made in ready-to-wear and 'it is infinitely superior to all but the very highest class custom tailoring. Fabrics (and patterns are the best the season knows. Plenty of the greenish grays, silver prays and smoky browns in shadow stripes and hair line pattern, the very patterns [and weaves a custom tailor charges most for. Almost all the suitings are imported I'German and English weaves, also high class blue serges, thibet and vicuna. PRICES ARE: $3.50, $5.50, $8.75, $12.00, $15.00 Not one Buit in the lot made to sell under $25.00; ful ly half are the regular $30.00 suits of the specialty cloth ing stores. Sale will last 14 days only. Also a special re duction on men’s, boys, ladies and children’s shoes, tan oxford ties tan ehristy ties, the smartest foot wear in town. All these must be sold at a sacrificed price. Also a big lot of gents furnishings, shirts and neck wear of the latest shade and style. Why not be your own judge and convince yourself?

See local agent for any other information LOCAL OPTION IS ENDORSED I ! i Only 19 Out of 750 Delegates ] Vote for State-Wide Prohibition. Baltimore, Md., May 25—The general conference of the Meth odist Episcopal Church, at a pro : longed session today, put itself i on record as indorsing unquaii j fiedly the work of the anti-saloon leagues, favoring local option. ; Both of these positions are new with the church, as up to this time no special organization has had the specific indorsement of ! the church, while it has stood, j on the other hand, for absolute 1 prohibition everywhere. The result was attained only | after one of the stormiest meet ings yet held. It was contended by the minority adherents that it was willing for the general con ference to indorse any particular organization, and also that it was ' a distinct violation of the stan dard of the church to come out in favor of local option. The majority supporters main tained that the Anti-Saloon League was worthy of this rec | ognition, declaring that it is the ; organization that is doing the work for temperance at the pres ent time, fusing as it does all other societies and efforts into ! one. USE IT FOR PROHIBITION They upheld local option on the ground that it was to be used ; toward state-wide prohibition. When the final vote was taken but nineteen of the entire body ! of upwards of 750 delegates reg istered in favor of the minority report.

There is a structure which every graduate from our school is building, young and old, rich and poor, each one for himself. It is called “character,” and every act of your lives is a stone for this structure. If day by day you are careful to build your lives with pure, upright deeds, at the end you will stand a fair temple^ honored by God and man. But as one leak will sink a ship, and one flaw break a chain, so one mean, dishonorable act or or word will forever leave its im press and work its influence on ; your character. Then let the : several deeds unite to form a day and one by one the days grow into the noble years, and the years |as they slowly pass will raise at last a beautiful edifice, enduring forever to your praise, and you will cherish with the utmost ten derness the memories of your school life. The old school house, the familiar walks about the place, the desk upon which you wrote your name, all indelibly stored away in memory never to be forgotten. It is said that threa of the stingiest men in the state were in town yesterday, One of them will not drink as much water as he wants unless it be from an other man’s well. The second forbids any of his family from writing anything but a “small hand’’ as it is a was'e of ink to make large letters. The third stops his clock at night in order to save wear and tear on the ma chinery. Two of then decline to take their county paper on the ground that it is a terribl strain1 on their spectacles to read news-' paper, even in the day time. And the last one makes his wife and children climb the fence to keep from wearing out the hing es on the gate, and won’t turn over in the bed for fear he will wear out the sheet. This last one, however, will sometime conde scend to read a “sample’’-copy of a paper, but was never known to be a bonafide subscriber to anything except the Daily Dinner Horn—snd then he sometimes kicked because the poor little carrier failed to get it to him be cause of a threatening storm. “Dad” Dorin tells a joke like this: When eggs ranged around the twenty-five and thirty-five cent price, there was never an egg served at his boarding house, but just as soon as the price fell to 10 cents, eggs were plentiful. “In fact,” said Dad, “there was hardly anything else to eat.” One day the landlady asked him hov he would like his eggs. “Just give them to me raw, p lease, and I’ll take ’em down town and sell ’em for something TfY Dr. Price's IY Cream Baklag f Powder for nearly ^ half a century has been giving the people pure food — long before a pure food law was thought out for either state or nation.

They get their notion of it from among the clouds where they lived while they were engaged, and naturally about all they find up there is wind and moonshine, or novels which always ends be fore the trouble begins, or, they keep on. leave out the chapters that tell how the husband finds the rent and the wife the hired girl. But if there’s one thing in the world about which it’s possi ble to get all the facts, it’s matri mony. Part of them are right in the house where you were born, and the neighbors have the rest. THOS.
