that some patron lias spoken to a friend

OUR LIVESTOCK LETTER.
Kansas City Stock Yards, Sept. 4
—Cattle supplies are short today at
all the markets, the run of 18,000
head here, including 2000 calves,
being several thousand head less
than normal Monday run in Septem-
ber. The Labor day holiday cut
some figure, shippers fearing pack-
ers would want few cattle, account
of the plants lieing closed. Hereto-
fore this holiday has not reduced j
the run to any extent. The fears of i
the shipper seem to have been well
founded, for the market is steady to
10 lower on most of the cattle here,
'*/ a few corn fed cattle at stronger
<<$> prices being the exception. The
/+- cattle run for a month past hascon-
^ tained a larger percentage of beef
V* i steers than usual at this season, be-
nP cause of good late pastures. For
W j this reason killers are getting almost
as much beef as a year ago, in spite
of the shortage in total receipts
Stockers and feeders fell short 9000

An Open Letter
To the Ladies of Billings and Vicinity:
We are well aware that three-toutths of the buying and
trading is done by the women folks, and the why is this: Men
recognize and quietly but forcibly acknowledge the superiority
of woman’s judgment in this, one of the most important affairs of
our existence, the purchasing of the necessities of living.
(And it will be but a few short years, until, with the right of
franchise in your hands, and ought to have been long ago, you will
he able to use your superior judgment in the affairs of the nation
as well. Now ladies of Billings, just a word—we invite you to
call and get our prices, see our goods, and convince your-
selves of the fact that we sell goods as low or lower than any
dealer in the county, and we give you, free, the beautiful war-
ranted Rogers’ silverware for your table, a really tine grapho-
phone, or a chance with each 25c worth on the $100.00 buggy,
it is your duty to come and see about this. It means money in
your pocket, silverware on your table, talking machine to enter-
tain your family and friends, and a top buggy to ride in.
Now we want to call your special attention to our hue of
ladies’ shoes. We have a complete line of the famous Hamil-
ton Brown American Lady Shoes that you see advertised in all
of your magazines. They are the best on earth, and while we
have had a tine patronage on these goods we will not be satisfied
until every lady in this vicinity is wearing a pair of H. B. shoes.
It is a pleasure to show them; come in and see them, buy when
you get ready. And don’t forget us when the children need
school shoes. In order to have you try a pair of “THE RED
GOOSE” school shoes we will sell you the first pairs at induce-
ment sale prices. If you buy them once we have your future
trade. Seeing is believing, come and see. We are here to show
them; our time is yours.
Most of you ladies know thaf t,NOX•ALL,, flour means
good bread. We sell it.
Now ladies, beat in mind the fact that we carry Clothing,
Hats, Caps,, Mitts, Gloves, Shirts, Underwear, Socks, Hose,
Collars, Belts, Neckties, and the laigest stock of good Fresh Gro-
ceries in Billings, and pay the highest prices for your produce.
Yours to command,
