ANTS HAVE FIVE NOSES.

If nn nut bn deprived of n certain
nose, It will llvo pencwibly with ene

FE Have bought the Johnstone Toggery stock at a great bargain. It is abso
lutely necessary for us to raise a large amount of money now to do with this
stock what we much desire. It is our purpose to maintain the Toggery as a
MEN'S STORE and the old store will perhaps bo maintained as an
exclusive ladies' and children's store. To arrange the stocks as is needful
to carry on the two stores, we must sell from both the stores a large amount of goods.
We announce, in the Toggery store, a Fifteen
Days Re-arrangement Sale beginning Sept. 1 0th.
We are not starting the sale sooner because of just having closed our year's
business in our other stores.
