The Man Who "Shows Us' All
How to Keep a State Famous.
He "Was Shown" How One Man Earned
A story is told of a well-known Portland legal light who was driving in the country on a hot
day during the past Summer. He had missed lis road, when, after a vain search for the
right one, he spied a colored man, apparently asleep hy the roadside. He woke him up and
asked him if he could direct him homeward. The colored man, in place of telling him which
way to go, indicated it by moving his foot the right way. Our lawyer friend looked at the
man for a moment, and then said to him: "If you can show me a lazier move than that I
will give you a dollar." The colored man oponed his eyes sleepily, rolled over on his side and
said: "Please put it in my pocket. Boss." And he got the dollar. We don't "believe in lazi
ness, and can tell our patrons how they can earn dollars even easier than the colored man got
his. Come to the store today AND BE SHOWN some of the bargains told of on this page.
According to the amount you buy you shall save, and "A penny or a dollar saved is a
penny or a dollar earned. DOME BE SHOWN.

A Unique Exhibit of
Autumn Styles in Women's
in Portland's Largest, Leading and Only
Authoritative Style Store
Grand Salons of Dress Second Ploor. .
For years this store has been the recognized authority on fashion
mnttors in all this section. Not confined to the Western Sldj5e
alone, but our advice is asked and tastes consulted by the leading
sfyle-makers of America. What Paquiu is to Paris, Altinan to
ev York and Marshall Field to Chicago, this store is to Portland
and her trading territory supreme authorit oij women's gar
ments. This season's magnificent exposition of suits and coats
will more than maintain the position we have held as LEADERS
OF FASHION for more than a quarter century. We trust that
Portland women interested in correct modes in dress will attend
all the minor Openings"' held around town, which are the "curtain-raisers1'' to our great
style shows that the' may the better appreciate the marvelous exhibit shown here. There
is an air of sameness savoring of the commonplace that characterizes them all, as usual how
different the style story told here! The great displays made here are revelations to shoppers
and visiting storekeepers alike, when compared with the very ordinary ones elsewhere. Our
representatives are home from New York and other Eastern style centers with all the informa
tion that women of fashion want to guide them in the selection of a gown or wrap for the
coming season 's wear. We know that Paquin has undertaken to restore the dress of the reign
of the Empire Francis, another famous French modiste, introduces the short Empire coat
Beer, a celebrated artiste authority on dress, a Parisian favorite at Fashion's court, is mak
ing short boleros Do ucet, short skirts and Drecoll, jackets and the Louis XV style, with
waistcoats of embroidery in old tapestry colors. And our own Mile. Schroeder, the most fa
mous of all American modistes, combines charmingly all of the beauty of Parisian styles
with the characteristic touch of American taste. This store is the.onty establishment west of
Chicago .deemed worthy of representing the Schroeder garments, if you would hear the Jull
style story or witness the splendid picture in its entirety, you MUST come here. And it costs
no more to. come and be SURE of correct dress in selecting than it does to go elsewhere and
take chances. In Suits the price range is wide
$12.50 to $175.00
SUPERB NEW LINGERIE WAISTS have arrived. Magnificent hand-made creations.
Prices run from $7.50to $2S.50. Dainty mulls and linens predominate in the showings.

tures share in popular favor. All the favored shades and colorings. Choose from the simple
and plebeian garments, yet full of style as a nut is full of meat, at $7.50, or run along up
the .price sale to the Patricians at $185. Stop where you will at the in-between price sta
tions, you'll find here each garment best at its respective price in America.

Gentlemen Your1 method of teaching- manual

but also tends to develop him along the line
of thoughtfulness. patience and accuracy. I
cannot speak too highly of your system, and It
my son shows an Inclination to learn the wood
worker's trade, I will certainly let him continue
to take lessons by correspondence. In my Judg
ment It Is far ahead of class-room work.
