does not cease with the firing of
the cannon, the blowing of the horn and the beat
ing of the drum. The man who serves his country
and fellow man best is the man whose greatest aim
is to do the greatest good to the greatest number .
of people. It is the capacity in which he is placed
where this service is rendered. From a business
point of view, it has been the constant aim of the
M & K to serve their many patrons near and far
with the best wearables for man, woman and child
the world produces and at the lowest possible price consistent with
superior qualities and honorable business methods. It has been an
endless, tireless, unceasing effort on our part to watch, guard and
protect the interests of all fortunate enough to visit this store.
We are now at your service with some most
unusual offerings in men's suits that will not only
enable you to be clothed "just right" for the
glorious Fourth, but the saving in price from the
price you would expect to pay for such qualities,
will enable you to celebrate quite loyally as well.
We refer especially to a line of hand-tailored
Hart Schaffner & Marx and Clothcraft men's
suits, $18 and $20 values, which we have placed
on sale at $15. These suits tower 'way above the
level of the ordinarv $15 suits they are selections
from our $18 and $20 lines and reduced to $15.
Every one of them is absolutely new and of this
season's make. The fabrics are strictly all-wool-tested
and they come in plain and fancy worsted
cheviots, serges, etc. We want to emphasize that
these suits are M & K $18 and $20 values reduced

from our stock of men's fancy suits the finest
$28.00 and $25.00 suit we have ever had, at $22.50.
These suits show every fine feature that the high
grade tailor dotes on, having gone through the
same painstaking process of production.
Our superior service in our boys' clothing
parlor has always been appreciated on the part of
parents. This is due to our efforts to sell boys'
clothes that look well and last long. We find our
stock in children's fine suits entirely too large,
and to aid the little fellow as well as his father to
celebrate the Fourth, we have placed on sale all
$10.00 suits at $7.95; $12.50 values at $9.95 and
$15.00 values at $11.95. Boys' regatta wash
suits for regatta days and every day, $1.00 to $5.00. Cheaper

Cool, comfortable negligee shirts, $1 to $3. Perfect fitting summer
underwear at 50c to $3. Summer neckwear and hosiery at 25c to $2.
In our shoe department is where M & K cer
tainly outshine. We believe it is a modest statement when we say
it is the largest, finest and best equipped shoe store in the tri-cities.
We have the exclusive sale of the celebrated Edwin Clapp shoes for
men. Every man who has ever worn a Clapp shoe knows what
they are, and nothing could persuade him to even try any other
make. Our stock of ladies' and men's low shoes for the hot days
is complete in every detail. Shoes for dress, outing, vacations, trav
eling, camping and every other summer pleasure and summer
comfort. To save your "sole" you can't find shoes like those
stamped M & K.

They will Aid You in Making the Day a Most Joyous One
