Men Are Buying
It is very gratifying to see the ever-increasing appreciation of and growing demini for OUR
HIGH-GRADE CLOTHING. When the first cool weather came the business bounded ahead of the
same days of last year. We’ll beat that record TO-MORROW. We are talking of Good Clothing, not
necessarily high-priced clothing. All-wool, silk-sewn, stylishly cut and finely tailored clothing at the
same prices or a fraction more than some stores ask for cotton-mixed, commonplace goods. To-day
we lay particular stress on our splendid lines of
Men’s Suits at $8.50 and sio
But this business is not confined to low-priced Suits. We^how
Unequalled Values at $15.00, $16.50, SIB.OO and $20.00.
The tip-top of ready-to-wear style and finenss. Tailoring practically equal to fine* custom work. More careful
hand work than in any other clothing at these prices. Finest Worsteds and the new style Rough Cheviots, in
Sack and Walking Coat styles.
Men’s Furnishings and Hats.
SUSPENDERS —lt's easy to be fooled in “cheap” suspenders. We’re not in the fooling business. Reliable
Suspender*, 25c and 50c.
MEN S NECKWEAR —Xo finer line of 50c Neckwear anywhere. A large variety of fine silks, handsome
colorings, in the two-inch Four-in Hand—now becoming so popular —50c- and the new “butterfly” bo „* *'• 50c
MEN S UNDERWEAR —A complete stock of popular-priced Underwear —but no trash; remember that
We haven’t room for anything but good. Blue ribbed fleeced, well made, full cut, 50c a garment. Medium
and heavy weight wool and camel’s hair shades at SI.OO a garment. Fine natural wool and camel’s hair
shade in "intermediale” weight, full regular made, at $1.50 a garment.
MEN’S HATS —All the new styles in Soft Hats are here—and why not save some money when you buy?—
$1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $3.00 to $5.00. Derbys at same price.

A Letter and an Asintr.
A little maid I know.
And grace and beauty bide about her.
Oft fells me that "sit, loves me so,"
And yet, and yet, I can but doubt her.
There Is ao much of loveliness
In every mood. In every feature.
I can’t believe that Fate will blcaa
My lot, with this fair, dainty creatura.
And so, despite assurance sweet.
Ah, sweeter than the summer's kiss ts,
I mind me that her inools are fleet.

To troubled hearts, as per description.

And If must eome that final slip.
Make sure that In the hither day.
There be not one 'twlxt lip lip.
There comes a message from above:
"Go. gather roses while ye may.
And kbisew are the sweets of love."
Make haste, the hours slip away.
Revile no! Fate If some mischance
Should cheat thee of thy heart's desire
There's magic In anoiher's glance
To heal all burn, of love', tierce fire.
And think not that thy life Is done.
E'en If the mail unfaithful be.
There still are others to be won.
There still are fishes In the sea.
Nay. nay. good, foolish friend, love on.
I gave and le not one w hit afraid.
And When the reigning love Is gone.
Seek solace with another maid.

loon man rarne to own her Is this way:
The man hail a friend who was a miner
and owned Granny, the mother of Hhag
gy. Oranny was a pack donkey and a
good one, too. before she got ouch of
city life. She would carry her master's
tools, be,kimg, provisions and anything
that could be piled on her back, up the
long, steep mountain to where the owner
had a "prospect ” She never kicked n/
grumbl'd about her labor, and was per
fectly contented with her dutiiw nd an
opportunity to eat pine hark and snow
to sustain life and strength. The owner
of Granny went to Cripple creek ami of
course the donkey went along. He waa
successful In striking n "pocket" and
from the proceeds lined hi* pockets with
good hard coin. He got his immey for
the eol* put|s>sc. he watd. of pnding It.
so the Inmates of the dance hall, showed
him ihe way. He always look Granny
with him to the dance halls si he could
ride her imok to his cabin after he had
consumed all the beer he rould hold.
One night, Juki for fun. some of th
men around the fiance hall poured enough
beer down "Granny's" throat to -get her
about "nolf sea over." Then she reeled
into the dance hall like a drunken nna
nnd hrayeii at the noisy piano From that
time on "Granny" was worthless ns a
pack animal. When the pack was placed
on her hark and she was started up the
hill "Oranny" bucked It off and ran as
fast as ene could for a dance hall The
electric lights, the piano and the l,e*r
formed a combination that, “Granny"
could not resist, and she became a slave
to the liquor habit and a loose character
generally. 8o aer owner decided to send
her to Saloon Keeper Thomas for the pur
pose of breaking her of her hod habit, and
to be- kepi away from evil Influences.
"Granny” was tied In a shed back of
the saloon and It waa not long until a
wee hit of a colt was horn to her. The
odd little beast was christened "Shaggy."
It grew rapidly, and one day It walked
into the saloon and stuck Its nose U |i to
the har. The bartender offered "Shaggy"
a glass of beer and she greedily drank
the beverage from the glass as the I>ar
tender held It to her mouth That turn

from n broken-hearted mother, for "Oran

Bhe was a good 'lroning card for the

"Shaggy" became a regular "growler
