one way to save. That Is to save II rat

The Walrus Brand for Men
Our store has been the St. Johns 'Agency
for several years for the Walrus Brand of Oil
Clothing. This is the brand that most of the
Astoria fishermen ' wear in their business.
The garments are not simply made up of
muslin and then dipped in a vat of oil as the
inferior garments are. But the heavy drill
is soaked before it is ever cut; just soaked in
il and then rolled until thoroughly saturat
ed and cured. We have other rain coats,
cheaper, but this particular 'Walrus Brand
js so constructed that we can, with entire
confidence say to a buyer, "put this on and
wear it all day in the hardest kind of a rain
and if it does not keep you perfectly dry,
your money back." In all these years we
have carried these exceptional slickers we
have taken back but five or six and these
because of a leak in a faulty seam and not
in the body of the s(tock.
Men who know tobacco,
chew the best without its
costing them any more.
They take a little chew and
it's amazing how the good
taste stays in a rich, high
grade chewing tobacco.
For lasting tobacco satis
