FAIR OF TURNER SOCIETY
The Turner fair is in full sowing at
the society's hall on Third avenue be
tween Fifteen and Sixteenth s.treeis,
where great crowds are gathering
nightly to assist the organial ion in
its efforts to free itself of debt and
form the nucleus of a fund with which
to replace the present wooden
structure with a new modern equip
ped hall. The society is nightly pro
viding a program that is well worth
one's while going to hear, and the at
tractively appointed booths, presided
over by the good looking ladies of the
auxiliary are in themselves a feature
that should insure a full house every
night (luring the fair. The booths and
the ladies in charge are as follows:
Fancy work, Mrs. .lohn Sluhr; dolls.
Mrs. Fied Man.mei ich; ice cream.
Mrs. M. Yess; coffee. Mrs. Guslav
Stengel; aprons, Mrs. Henry Stelck;
Gypsy booth. Miss Rose F.ertelsen:

The general committee of arrange
ments in behalf of the Turners is
composed of .John Konosky. . Gustav
Stengel. John S.tuhr and John lSertel
sen. The society has enlisted the co
operation of its ladies auxiliary, and
that organization has appointed the
following general committee to aid in
making the fair a success: Mrs. John
l'ertelsen. Mrs. Gustav Stengel, Mrs.
Catherine llerkert. Mrs. M. Vuss, Mrs.
William Fink, Mrs. Emil Jacobsen,
Mrs. Henry Stelck, Mrs. John Konos-
ky, Mrs. Henry Horst, Mrs. Henry

Mrs. John Stuhr, Mrs. Henry Geisler,
Mrs. Martin Thuess, Mrs. John Mar
tens aud the Misses Emma and Rose
Rertelsen and Mary and Lizzie Goed
ecke. The appeal of the society for assis
tance has met with a generous re
sponse, in the way of merchandise as
well as 'cash donations. - The society
is planning to .retire the outstanding
bonds and also a part of the mort
gage indebtedness on the property,
and then, begin the erection of a hall.
An auditorium such as the society is
planning is greatly needed in the city,
as the only hall now available for con
ventions, political rallies and public
meeting of every description is the
Illinois theatre. The-society, besides
the lot now occupied by the handsome
brick tit met lire erected some years
ago for the purpose of the manager,
owns a frontage of 43 feet, and ex
tending back to the alley. At the rear
end of the lot is the brick gymnasium
building, while in the front is the old
wooden structure now used for a hall.
The plan of the society is to build
a hall covering the entire frontage
and extending back to the gymnasi
um, giving them a hall capable of
seating 1.200 to 1.401) people.

"Get All You Can" is the Old Way of Doing Business
instead of marking our goods at an excessive profit at the start with the expectation
of selling later on at 50 cents-on-the-dollar, we mark them at the beginning, at as close
a margin of profit as it is possible to do, and while others were trying to "get all they
could'' we were selling the goods at a small margin of profit which probably accounts
for the large increase in our business in this line this season.
If we dared relate the methods on which some stores conduct their business, you, the
public, who are In the habit of paying the price asked, would stand amazed at the
condition which exists. Only yesterday a woman related to us of buying a $22.50
coat for $15, the price which she offered, and after she did get it she was sorry of her
purchase. Bear this in mind That vhen a store offers you right in the very heart
of the season a $22.50 garment for $15, unless it is a price they have it marked at a
clearing sale, don't buy it bu: offer them $10 or $12 and they will take it. But one
thing wc will promise you and that is, that our garments at the same price will be a
better value. There is no bottom io the price of a two priced concern. They
may have a seeming advamage for the time being, but the public will find them out
in time. You can't charge enn woman $3, another $4 and still another $5 for the same
article and never have it found out. If you appreciate a store That treats

It's no uncommon thing now for certain stores to offer
Twenty Dollar Garments for Ten.
You are used to that sort of thing and so are we. It is
just their way of "advertising". It don't bother us and
wc never try to compete along that line. When a store
-effers to take ten dollars for a garment they formerly
tried to get twenty for, it shows they are addicted to .the
practice of "asking overmuch and taking less".
