In these days of frenzied advertising'
any old style is represented as the latest
out, up-to-date, eteM and so people are
uecuminjj more ami more careful in se
lecting their SHOE STORE. Our ever
inereasing'trade shows that well dressed
people look to this store as the style
center and authority in all that pertains
to footwear. The name STEPHENS on
a shoe is a guarantee of quality. Our
endorsement of a style is absolutely un
questioned. What is better for an
-Xmas gift than a pair of shoes which
will give service for months to come?

This is brought about by our necessity in closing out
' stock of Domestic Vacum Sweepers. We have sold
some at the manufaciurers restricted price and some
at our cost but we cannot hold balance longer and to
make them an attractive Christmas purchase to our
friends, we offer them under the Green Tag at $10.00.
Now don't think we are offering a cheaply constructed
affair, for we are not, on the contrary they are the
Best Sweeper Made.
THE DOMESTIC takes up all dust and all dirt and trash not too largo
for the nozzle.
THE DOMESTIC does away with necessity ot beating rugs and carpets.
THE DOMESTIC does away with a layer of dust to be wiped from furni
ture and wood work. It doesn't make any dust.
THE DOMESTIC does not wear your carpets and rugs as do brooms and
THE DOMESTIC works easily the only strength is that necessary to over
come the suction.
THE DOMESTIC rolls over floors on two rubber tired wheels.
THE DOMESTIC has no parts to get out ot order or to wear out.
THE DOMESTIC works either forward or backward, saving steps.

P. S. Don't forget to look for the Green Tag on
other goods. We vouch for the above statements
believe that it will more than pay
for Itself in reduced insurance rates."
In further conversation Mr. Per
kins said the present board of fire
commissioners was an active one, and
that everyone In the city would be
used in common. "We intend to hew
to tho line, and will not be persuad
ed to change our ordinances to suit
the few. The ordinances were adopt
ed with the idea that they would be
enforced, therefore, I cannot see why ,
wo should have anything to fear. We j
will Bi m ply enforce these ordinances
until better ones can be recommend-'ed."
Mr. Perkins also believes tliat the
present fire limits should be extend
ed lu the near future and thus avoid
tho erection of structures which will
prove a menace in case of fire. In
this, Mr. Perkins has the hacking of
every progressive resident of the
low n.
This afternoon Mr. Perkins was1
busily engaged reading the ordln-'
ances pertaining to his duties In or
der that he may get busy with'out un
due delay.
That Mr. Perkins and his associates
will do the city and its inhabitants
justice in the roll of fire commls
sioners is the belief of every real
dent of the city.
