Shopping for Christmas has begun
and but two weeks are left in which to
make the purchases of presents. Shop
windows have tukn on a holiday ap
ptarance and everything in any quan
tity is offered. Toys of all kinds for
the children are causing the little ones
to stop and gaze and they loiter along
fiorn one store to another wira wistful
i.ms. The toy counters as usual have
new styles of toys to attract the child
i :i, and then there are the old ones
that never get old.
The elder ones are not above taking
a glance at the articles so attractively
arranged in the windows and from
now until Christmas day the people or,
the street during shopping hours will
increase. The newspapers have taken
on their holiday appearance and the
home folk are watching the columus
for something nice the same as the
one who is closely inspecting the
counter offerings from day to day.

It was a huge task to undertake the
cure of such a bad case of kidney dis
ease as that of C. V. Collier, of Chero
kee. Ioka, but Electric Hitlers did it.
He writes: 'My kidneys were so far
gone, I could not sit on a chair without
a cushion: and suffered from dreadful
backache, headache, and depression.
In Electric Bitters, however, I found a
cure, and by them was restored to per
fect health. I recommend this great
tonic medicine to all with weak kid
neys, liver or stomach. Guaranteed by

IrigbJls' Jewelry Store
In Yesterday's paper we advertised a "bargain" sale for today real
Japanese glove purses received direct from the Orient to sell for 25c.
It calls to mind the much eiver-used word, "Bargain." Our prestige
and our policy permit us to use the word "bargain" as often as we
find merchandise to justify the application. You see "bargain", "bar
gain", "bargain", illustrating the advertising of some store's atnVT"the
word the strongest word in the literature of advertising fails utter
ly to impress you as the merchant would have you impressed. Why?
yes. Why? They have taken liberties with the elasticity of the term
too frequently and stretched it too far. Your faith has been destroyed.
We've restored, rehabilitated the word given it. an exact status
in the scheme of this business.
The continuous interest and great sales here prove the wonderful
character of our offerings. Not an old piece of jewelry but every
thing clean and new ami yet the prices such as almost to make us
sympathize with less fortunate merchants.
The entire slock is a comprehensive list of redundant "bargains."
