The "Different Store"
at Fifth and "Washington
Avoid the Drift wod
One of the grandest sights to be witnessed along the rugged, rockbound coast of old New England is, just after a storm, to wander along
the beach and watch the foam-crested waves lashed into fury by the force of the gale, come tumbling in, bearing upon their mighty
bosoms tons of wreckage and driftwood, made such by force of the elements and the discords of man and nature. Industrially considered,
"driftwood" means the rubbish that plays so large a part in the narrow, confined, restricted methods of individual stores that have no
access to the avenues that formulate and build. How can you expect such stores to advance thus early styles to be shown and worn by
fashionable people? Poor copyists at best, they have little to copy until OUR SHOWING is announced complete for formal opening.
Our organization is far-reaching; it stands for early creating and quick selling results. It owns the past, commands the present and
compasses the future. First, we have the services of a fashion authority who is a permanent resident of New York, in touch with every
style leader of the Old and New "Worlds; secondly, the services of ten as expert buyers and designers as are gathered at the command

This morning we orint the conclusion of the Sunday and Mondav serial of Store News for this week three days even do not
suffice to tell it all; these published mentions are merely little runners springing out from strong vines that run riot thro all the store,
bearing rich, ripe, fruitful Values in worth and fashion. v
Not an Eastern store of note has yet an
nounced its formal Fall opening. Reason why?
Because intelligent merchants are aware that
styles are not as yet complete and await the
full ripening of the luscious fruits in fashion's
gardens. Less conscientious houses this side
the "Rockies" announce full showings
formal "openings" of such lines as women's
wear and millinery. This store is ready with
hundreds of advance styles with a show
grander and greater for this Reception "Week
than any advertised "opening" but we will
not betray the confidence of our customers by
false statements. There are styles yet to come

The bronchitis bacillus is around looking for people with shoes that let the damp through. All very
well to get your feet wet in salt water, but in town it's different.
When you buy shoes get WELTED and STITCHED ONES. The cost is only a trifle more than the
cheap kind, and they are better in every way. Have better insoles, are more flexible, have no nails or
rough threads to hurt your feet, and' are more easily repaired.

BERLIN. Sept 7. Herr Bebel's articles
on the Ylce-Presidency of the Reichstag,
which he Is opposed to the Socialist party
accepting, have heen declined "by the
Editor of the Vorwarts and therefore the
late autocrat of the party has been
obliged to have them printed in less Im
portant Socialist papers. The significance
of this is that the Vorwarts Is the party's
central, organ and Is owned collectively
and controlled by a committee designated
by the part organization. It is taken to
mean that leaders like Herr Bernstein,
who differ with Herr Bebel on the party
policy and favor accepting a Vice-Presidency,
have obtained the upper hand.
Herr Bebel says in a signed article that
he will require a reckoning at the party's
convention at Dresden, when questions of
policy and leadership must he settled.

Trouble Ahead in Australia.
LONDON, Sept. S. According to a Syd
ney dispatch to the Dally Mall, the Earl
of Lonsdale before sailing for home to--day,
"There is considerable trouble coming
upon Australia soon. The legislators are
barring the way of progress and making
It almost impossible for the large finan
cial interests to enter the Commonwealth.
The political aspect of affairs is becoming I
worse and worse. The labor party Is
largely blamable. The workmen are cut
ting their own throats, and a consider
able exodus from Australia is probable.
The country is oer-legIslated, and the
politicians overpaid. English workmen
earning 20 shillings a week, are better
off than Australian workmen earning 50."
The foregoing strong statement appears
to have been made In an Interview with
the correspondent, and was not a public
utterance. But the Earl of Lonsdale be
sides tho labor trouble, probably had in
mind the growing strength of the coun
try party in Australia, led by tho power
ful organ, the Bulletin, which openly
urged separation from the mother coun
try. In Its cartoons Great Britain is
significantly represented as "John Bull
Cohen." Since the establishment of the
Commonwealth the growth of the coun
try party threatens to replace the in
fluence formerly wielded by the towns.

WASHINGTON, Sept 7. The State De

Minister at Bogota, acknowledging the
receipt of Secretary Hay's cablegram of
August 26, stating that the Washington

was all the cablegram stated, although It
has been the basis for speculative reports

The State Department's attitude is one
of dignified patience. No. Indication of Its
course of action in the event that the
Colombian Congress rejects or amends
the treaty will be forthcoming until the
time for the exchange of ratifications ex
pires, September 22. It is known at the
State Department that the Colombian
Congress already is regretting its hasty
action in rejecting the treaty, but the
State Department will suggest no remedy
for the mistake. Once and for all the
State Department has announced that the
treaty a3 approved by the Washington
Government was ratified by the Ameri
can Senate. It Is up to the Bogota Gov
ernment to ratify that identical treaty,
if Colombia desires an Isthmian canal.
The State Department regards all the re
ports as to the connection of this Gov
ernment or even Its Interest in the un
rest on the Isthmus as too trivial for con
sideration. Dr. Herran,, the Colombian
Charge, indignantly scouts tho idea that
the "United States would lend Itself to the
encouragement of this unrest.
