OF ALL HEAVY WEIGHT
YOU KNOW WM AT THAT MEANS
TWICE a year, JANUARY and July, we conduct these sales to dispose of all surplus stock, as we find it much better policy to close
out ail remaining stock at Big Reductions in preference to carrying it over until the following season, as style's and
prices are constantly changing, we also prefer to begin each season with entirely new goods . . . Whenever we advertise a sale, it is a sale
in every sense ot the word. We do not go to market and buy up a lot of cheap, poorly-made and shoddy junk, made up especially for
fake sales, as many clothing merchants are in the habit of doing (as we prize our reputation as reliable merchants too highly) but take our regular stock on hand as clean and up-to-date a stock of clothing and fur
nishing goods as can be found in the tri-cities and place it on sale at prices that will move it out in a hurry.

An Untimely Royal Letter and the
Message It Conveyed.
One night at 3 o'clock the bishop of
Orleans nm roused by a royal cou
rier wbu tin a iu hot haste brought a
dispatch fntn tiis majjsty Louis X?.
TJia bishop imagined that something
terrible bud happened. Tremblingly be
opened the pa kage and read:
"Mousieur the Bishop of Orleans My
dauchters wish for some preserved Or
leans quinces. Pray send some. If
you have none I beg that you will"
In this pnrt of the letter there was a
drawing of a sedan chair, and under
neath the chair the kind's letter con
"Send Immediately Into your episco
pal town and get them, and, monsieur
the bishop, mny God have you In his
holy keeping. Louis."
Lower down on the page was this
"The sedan chair does not mean any
thing. It was drawn by my daughter
on this sheet of paper, which I hap
pened to find near me.''
Greatly relieved, the bishop hurried
a courier into Orleans, procured the
preserves and sent them to his royal
master. Thomas E. Watson in "The

Our instructions to the famous editor of the Boston Cooking School
Magazine were : "Get up a book of recipes of the things people tke best.
Find the best way to make and bake each one. Then wrile it out so plainly
that even an inexperienced housewife can't have a failure,"
"The Cook's Book" was the result. Some of the 90 recipes were origi
nated, many of them were improved upon, and aQ were personally tested by
this best known authority on cooking in America, and she tells so clearly how
she made everything that one cannot go astray.
While some of the cakes and pastry are elaborate enough for any occasion
the recipes are all thoroughly practical and call for no expensive a. J unusual
ingredients. In addition to telling how to make them.' the book is beautifully
illustrated in colors showing how to arrange and serve the dishes afpctizingly.
More than half a mi'lion of "The Cook's Book" are now in use in Amer
ican households. Yet the demand is constantly increasing. Many send for
two or three at a time to give to friends or young house
keepers. Don't depend on borrowing one from a
neighbor have one of your own.
