WATER BURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FR ID AY, NOVEMBER ' 13, 1908.
TDtkb SO GRAND STREET. 10 CLOTIM1 NO lit TIMES have changed, ideas and customs have come and gone. The 20th century idea is to buy your clothing and pay for it in partial payments. Just because you have not got the ready cash is no reason why you should still wear your last season's clothes It is human nature to wish for something different from what we have. We come to your aid with a line of new. styles in MEN'S and YOUNG MEN'S CLOTHING; which is different from what we ever had before, different in cut, different in pattern, and different in variety. We come to your aid with our popular cash and credit system. There are hundreds of people all over the city who recognize our system of selling, clothing a great convenience to them, not because we sell on credit, ( there are others, ) but because we have the styles that appeal to young men of fashion, because no exorbitant prices are charged here, because you are not being bothered by collectors, and because we keep your transaction with us strictly confidential. " Search all the stores for the newest ideas in suits and then come to us, . you'll find we have the same, garments only less in price. The difference is in location a little out of the high rent district, another difference is in the run ning expenses, every suit, though for young fellows, men of middle age and older ones is of a distinctive model, cut and shaped according to the latest dictates of the fashion and hand tailored by expert workmen. The quality is there, the service is there and there is enough of variety and moderate prices to bring you in for a try on. Suits from $8.50 to $25.00. and all prices between.

BY THE BOBBS-MERRILL COMPANY He turned and ran down the stej: tnd strode away through the long shad ows of the garden. Tbey heard the sate click after him as he passed Into the Claiborne grounds, and then they glanced at each other with such a glance as may pass between two mem bers of a peace commission sitting on the same side of the table who will not admit to each other that the latest proposition of the enemy has 'been in the nature of a surprise. They did not, : however, suffer themselves to watch Armitage. but diplomatically re filled their glasses. Through the green walls went Armi tage. He bad not been out of the baron's ground before since he was rnrrtpii thenc frrtm the hunralow. and It was pleasant to be free once more and able to stir without a nurse at his heels, and -he swung along with his head and shoulders erect, walking with the confident stride of a man who ate aim. At the pergola he paused to recon uoiter, finding on the bench certain Testigia that interested him deeply a pink parasol, a contrivance of straw, lace and pink roses that seemed to be a hat and a June magazine. He jump ed upon the bench where once he had sat an exile, a refugee, a person dis cussed in disagreeable terms by the newspapers, and studied the landscape. Then he went on up the gradual slope of the meadow until he came to the pasture wall. It was under the trees beneath which Oscar had waited lor Zmal that he found her. "They told me you wouldn't dare Venture out for a week," she said, ad vancing toward him and giving him her hand. 1 "That 'was what they told me," he said, laughing, "but I escaped from my keepers." "You will undoubtedly take cold without your hat!" "Yes; I shall undoubtedly hteve pneu monia from exposure to the Virginia sunshine. I take my chances." "You may sit on the wall for three minutes; then you must go back. I cannot be responsible for the life of t wounded hero." Tlease!" He held up his hand. "That's what I came to talk to you about." -. "About being a hero? You have tak n an unfair advantage. I was going to send for the latest designs in laurel wreaths tomorrow." She sat down beside him on the wall. The sheep were a grayish blur against the green. A little negro boy was shepherding them, and they scampered before him toward the farther end of the pasture. The faint and vanishing tinkle of a bell and the boy's whistle gave emphasis to the country quiet of the late afternoon. They spoke rapidly and impersonally of his adventures in the hills and of his Illness. ."I didn't know. Miss Claiborne, that I was going to lose my mind that morn ing at the bungalow or I should have asked your brother to conduct you to the conservatory while I fainted. From what they told me I must hare been a little light headed for a day or two. If I had been in my right mind I should not have let Captain Dick mix up in my business and run the risk of getting killed in a nasty little row. Dear old Pick! 1 made a mess of that whole business. I ought to have telegraphed for the Storm Springs constable in the beginning and told him that if he wasn't careful the noble house of Schomburg would totter and fall." , "Tes, and jost Imagine the effect on our constable of telling him that the fate of an empire lay in bis hands. It's hard enough to get a man arrested who beats his horse. But you must go back to your keepers. You haven't your hat"- "Xeither have you. You shan't outdo hm in recklessness. I inspected your hat as I came through the pergola. I liked it immensely. I came near seiz ing It as spoil of war the loot of the perrola:" "There would be causa for another war. I have rarely liked. any hat so much. But the baron will be after you in a moment I can't be responsible for you." "The baron annoys me. He baa given me a lot of worry. And that's what I have come to ask you about." "Then I should say that you oughtn't to quarrel with a dear old man like Baron von Marhof. Besides, he's your uncle." "No, no! I don't want him to be my nncle! I don't need any uncle!" He glanced about with an anxiety that made her laugh. "I understand perfectly! My father told me that the events of April in these hills were not to be mentioned. But don't worry. The sheep won't tell and I won't" He was silent for a moment as he thongbt out the words of what he wished to say to her. The sun was dipping down into the hills; the mel low air was still; the voice of a negro singing as he crossed a distant field stole sweetly upon them. "Shirley!" He touched her hand. "Shirley!" And- his fingers closed upon hers. "I love you. Shirley! From those days when I saw you In Paris before the great Gettysburg battle picture I loved you. You had felt the cry of the old world, the story that is in its bat tlefields, Its beauty and romance, just as I had felt the call of this new and more wonderful world. 1 understood I knew what was in your heart 1 knew what those things meant to you, but I had put them aside. I had chosen another life for myself. And the poor life that you saved, that is yours If you will take IL I have told your father and Baron von Marhof that 1 would not take the fortune my father left me. I would not go back there to be thanked or to get a ribbon to wear in my coat B'.;t my name, the name 1 bore as a boy and disgraced in my aerotg the mtndow they twnt father's eyes his name that be made famous throughout the world, the name I cast aside with my youth, the name I flung away lu anger tbey wish me to take that" She withdrew her hand and rose and looked away toward the western hills. "The greatest romance in the world is here. Shirley. I have dreamed it all over in the Canadian woods, on the Montana ranch as I watched the herd at night My father spent bis life keeping a king upon his throne, but I believe there are higher things and Oner things than steadying a shaking throne or being a king. And the name that has meant nothing to me except dominion and power It can serve no purpose for me to take It now. I learn ed much from the poor archduke. Ha taught me to hate the sham and shame of the life be had fled from. My fa ther waa the last great defender of the divine right of kings, bnt I believe in the divine right of men. And the dome of the capitol In Washington does not mean to me force or hatred or power, but faith and hope and man's right to lira and do and be whatever ha can make himself, I will not go back or take the old name unless unless you tell me I must, Shirley!" There was an instant In which they both faced the westering sun. He looked down suddenly, and the deep feeling In his heart went to bis lips. "It was that way. You were just like that when I saw you first, Shirley, with the dreams in your eyes." He caught her hand and kissed it bending very low indeed. Suddenly, as he stood erect, her arms were about his neck and her check, with its warmth and color, lay against his face, j "I do not know" and he scarcely heard the whispered words "I do not know Frederick Augustus von Stroe- bel, but I love John Armitage," she said. Then back across the meadow, through the rose aisled ways of the' quiet garden, they went band in hand together and answered the baron's question. the esd. awiiiwt ...... ...................

Styles of the marine hospital service before the Roosevelt commission on country life that the blood of the children of, this state was deficient in color, Gov- -ernor R. B.
