Homer Fitts Go. Incorporated "The Store Where Quality Courtis' Just Arrived N Some Very Attractive Models for Women and Misses in 44 Style -Graft" Coats These stylish Fall and Win ter Coats are hand-tailored from the choicest of mate rials and styled up to the last minute. Well-dressed women say that Stive Coats fully satis fy their fashion needs! Of course you can buy a coat for' less money than you pay for a Style-Craft but you don't buy the same satisfaction. Women who are discriminating who want garments that hold their shape that look well after months of hard wear prefer Style-Craft they know from experience that though Style-Craft may cost a dollar or two more in the beginning that their long and worth-while service more than offsets the slight difference in first cost. Style-Craft coats can be seen in our garment department any day that you are downtown but we suggest that you do not delay your com ing as you know the good things always go first.

Mo., is a town that for more than a decade held trade, supreio-, acv of a territorv large enough to be an empire all of the great plains country west of St. Louis to the Rocky mountains. To-day it is a aleepr resi dence suburb of Kansas City, Mo. Westport, another proud and am bitious settlement of the same immedi ate neighborhood, came along in tbe early 40 s and snatched away these laurels from Independence. Who now remember Westport and her ancient glory? Yet, for lo years Westport wag in torn, the favorite of Destiny, the greatest city of. the great Missouri val ley and of all the vast watershed trib utary to the Big Muddy. Thirty -one jeara ago Westport was swallowed at gulp by Kansas City the latter a town that once had no better claim to fame than the fact that it was W.est port's docking place, nicknamed "West port landing." How did Kansas City win? From ehe first she was handicapped financially by the fact that two other towns of the neighborhood bad a tre mendous headstart on her. Moreover, she was physically hampered by the circumstance that her original town site was only a narrow little strip of levee between the shores of the treach erous Missouri river and sheer cliffs of clay. How then did she win unleas it was because she had a successful man's un shakable dctermmatiiln to, win and because she was always willing to pay tbe price of su-re? From the very beginning f the city a epic history un til the present tkk of tbe watih the community alwajs ras fought wiia the desperate spirit of a Rntnil glad. lor.
