vacations nnu piny time are
now considered so necessary to'
every worker that many emnlov-
ers and organizations are giving!
their employees one or more
weeks of vacation, knowing that
every one can do better work
the remainder of the year be
cnuse oi the change nnu rest.
Hut how often the vacation of
the mother and housewife is
overlooked and no plans made for
her in the hurry of cett ntr fa
ther ready for his annun) llshinir
trip; then, Violet's clothes must
be mndo for commencement and
an extra dress for the round of
house parties that follow this
important event. Violet is so
busy with the mnny good times
nnd extra hours of study that
she has no timo to even wipe
the disheB and mother lets her
sleep late on Saturday mornings.
Then the boys have found a fine
place for camping n few miles
from home, near enouuh so they
enn easily conio home every week
for provisions and some of mo-
tners homo cooking. There is
the tent to be patched, the bed
ding made ready, old clothes
hunted up, provisions and equip
ment to be packed and mother
remembers the forgotten arti
cles, fills the first-aid-to-injured
box, settles difficulties and by
the timo the boys arc ofT she is
worn out completely. Then
canning and preserving time
came and she spent the long
hot days over the stove making
jelly and bottling up cans of
currants nnd berries, the hours
that should have been hers to
enjoy. Then there were little
ones to clothe and care for, their
little troubles to rssuage, and
oceans of ironimr. wnshintr.
Bweeping, dusting and baking
to do. When September enme.
with the family eager to betrin
work again, it was no wonder Hint
mother was too tired to be in
terested. When tho children
were all small she thouirht it I
necessary for her always to bu
with them, and as home wiih
the easiest place to care for
thorn, the habit of always stay
ing home has become so strong-
y llxed that she must be urged
and almost forced to take a rest.
Moth boys and girls can be tauirht
to cook ami caro for tho house
ho that mother's absence will
not cnuse too great an upheaval.
-01 nor choose her own vacation.
no matter how iiueer it mav seem
to tho family, for rest is doing
what you like to do and doing

The buying public is demanding lower prices: not
cheaper merchandise but there is a cry
of relief from top-jotch market.
And there ore bargains to be had if yoli arc n good buyer.
There arc burgaitis in a wholesale way and we have been alive to the
situation and have secured our share.
Some of these arc constituted in fall goods that arc arriving
dally. These wc have marked right 'down to 'the BOTTOM: we
have staved close to the "REASONABLE MARGIN" of
profit ALWAYS but we shall eudavor to do business this full on a
still closer basis. We know we can do this as our experience In this
community has assured us that we shall have the volume: why not.
Our stock Ins passed that stage of n just n drop-in store and nlmost
everything in our line may be had right here and let us remind you
minus the car ride and car-fare.
A good buy on Children's Playsuits enables us to supply you with a good sub
stantial garment at what is less than the wholesale price today. . They come in plain
blue denim, white stripe and khaki color. Size two years to ten years, price, any size
of this line $1.50
Sandals and Tennis Shoes
It is not too late to fit your boy or girl
with a xiir of Snudals or Tennis Shoes.
They will wear the rcmaindur of the
.summer. Kvcu nt some reductions from
last full and spring you will find shoes
still high priced when you come to fit the
children for .school. .Save by using a
temporary shoe while the weather is
White Footwear for Women
There arc still some sizes in White
Shoes: the rubber soled canvas or poplin
summer Shoes und Oxfords for women.
The prices on these take the season-cud
reductions: they nrc worth while.
As there arc still too many Swimming
Suits to carry over to next season we nrc
going to continue the 15 per cent reduc
tion on these another week. It looks like
several weeks of swimming weather yet.
