Conditions are different this season.
Better come early.
Our stocks were never more complete
and attractive. But we expect to have
difficulty filling in later. We advise early
buying for your benefit, not for ours
Our lines are the "thoroughbreds of the
nation." They include Style with a big
S and quality with a big Q.
We do not carry a handful of any one,
but a big assortment of each.
You can pay a medium price and get
the newest patterns and the very latest
models. We bought Styleplus Clothes
$17 liberally. We have anticipated a
big call for them. Their price remains
the same. Their guarantee remains the
same. Enough said.
Glad to have you come, even if
you don't want to buy now.
We have the exclusive sale
here of nationally known
Styleplus Clothes $17. You
know the price has not
raised. z6* s

The efforts of the members of
the school hoard, especially Pres-
ident Floyd K. Felt, merits the
appreciation and approbation of
school patrons. The board has
spent much time in preparing
for the coming year's work—to
insure a successful twelfth
month for scholars and school.
They desired the best teachers
and they were not secured with-
out effort, as they found them
anything but numerous, but
the quest proved successful at

ing year is gratifying to the
members of the board and also

and the outlook for the coming
year is very satisfactory.

We make a specialty of cattle loans, large or small. We
try to keep in touch with the market, we can advise you
on what to buy. We will back our judgment and our
