You'll find our clothing right—correct in style, well-made, and reasonably priced. Shoes We have a new shoe for boys that we are introducing in New- nan this season for the first time. If you are looking for a shoe that will stand hard service you’ll find it here. It is called the “Amer ican Boy’’—a little higher than some you’ll see elsewhere, but the service is there. In fact, we have never seen one quite so good before. Our shoe stock is complete throughout, for men, women and children. Hats Straw hats have seen better days. They received their death blow last Monday. Why not treat your head to a new headpiece? A "Hawes” will fill che bill. The /ifew models are here in the latest colors. A “Hawes” hat at three dollars will outwear most five- ddllar hats. Hosiery If your children do not wear “Cadet” stockings, they should. They are the most practical hose for wear on the market, made of good stout yam, with linen heels, knees and toes to stand the strain where most needed, and every pair absolutely guaranteed. 25c. a pair, or no more than you pay for the ordinary kind. “Interwoven” socks for men are the same class with the “Ca det” for children. A double thickness of yarn is “interwo ven” in heel and toe, thus mak ing them hole-proof. They cost only 25c. a pair. We sell “Onyx” hose for wo men, and have some exceptional values in this line. Of course, you know the tariff has advanced the price on all foreign hosiery. We supplied our needs at old prices, and hence at 25c. to 50c. a pair we can give you the same old numbers.
