Mr. Make compared the stone
crusher and cotton gin as Inventions,
and declared that both were epoch
making, but that neither Inventor re
ceived his due reward owing to the
fact. that, both Inventions were brought
out during a time of war and finan

invention, nor are they aware that be
fore that time there had been no me

even In decorative architecture. In

THE AVERAGE MAN- f
Looks forward to Christmas with mixed feelings. He likes to receive presents oh
yes but there are certain things he may get at Christmas time that strike terror to his
soul neckties which speak of themselves in no uncertain tones, freak-fitting house
coats, osoranco cigars, or shaving sets which are all set and no shave. Then there are
other things which his masculine heart longs for and for which he will heap blessings on
the giver. We sell some of them. 1
In many households there is a mutual understanding that all Christmas gifts shall
be useful. And in no store will you find a display of holiday goods so essentially prac
tical as in ours. Sdme things we have are both useful and ornamental, while in others
utility is the chief feature. To this latter class belong the goods in our Kitchen Depart
ment. This Kitchen Department Is receiving a lot of praise from the ladies who visit it. If you're not familiar with
It come In and seat the opportunities it gives for buying senslblo Christmas Gifts.
