Thumps the Doc.
Voltaire despised doctors, and, like
Macbeth, thought It well to "throw
physic to the dogs." The French au-
thor once said: *A physician is a man
who pours drugs of which he knows
little into the body of a man of which
he knows less."
Reports of serious damage from
j chinch bugs were received by the
state board of agriculture the past

E. Sanborn of Stillwater will be asked
to make an investigation. Professor
Sanborn will also be requested to in-
vestigate the appearance of the San
Jose scale at El Reno. A letter re-
ceived by the board from Mayor P.
P. Duffy of that city says that the pest

BEGINNING TODAY—CONTINUING THE WEEK
AN IMPORTANT SALE OF SUITS
In pursuance of our established policy of clearing excess stock
while the merchandise concerned is still thoroughly in style, we
have assembled for selling today and the remainder of the week
four of perhaps the best value-lines ever featured in the Suit De-
partment of Brock's.
We want it understood that these garments are worthy ot
much higher prices today than those which we quote for clear-
ance, even through the season has advanced somewhat, for some
of them will go for considerable less than half former value.
SSLi' Now Priced at $12.50
Early shoppers will find among these suits a range of style complete with
serges, storm serges, wide wale diagonal cloths and other materials, ( reams
In plain or pencil stripes; Copenhagen, tan, leather, gray and navy. Styles
with notched collars, or trimmed and braided.
Now Priced at $16.75
We have just two dozen of the suits at $16.75 and they consist ot hand-
some mixtures in tans and grays; French and storm serges in navy, tan and
cream. Plain tailored, or with deep roll collars and cuffs. A line full of ex-
Now Priced at $19.50
The suits of (his line are mostly cream serges. You may select fancy
models with long shawl collars, or those with wide braiding. Some too, are
made with sailor collars with ties. The few dark suits are of navy and tan
with black bands of satin as trimmings. The variety of style effects com-
mends this line to the most particular.
Now Priced at $23.50
Of these suits at $23.50 we have exactly ten, but the extremely low sale
price should be sufficient to rally a throng of thrifty women even though
there are only a few. The range includes elegant models in tans, creams,
black and white checks, navy and mixtures. Eton or straight coats may be
preferred, with wide square sailor collars hand embroidered or of fancy con-
trasting material. Yes—formerly worth to $60 each.
