THE great rush of jcole to take advantage of our extraordinary offers in uncalled for suit and overcoat has been marvelous from the.very beginning.
The popularity of these suits has become so great that we have been compelled to open correspondence with over one hundred of the largest Tail
oring concerns throughout the country in order to get these suits fat enough to supply the enormous demand. These are not misfits, but suits
made to order on which deposits have been paid and which for unkown reasons remained uncalled for. Such things happen to every Tailoring establish
establishmcnt. It is by advertising and making a feature of selling these suits that they find it more advantageous to consign them to us than to attempt
to dispose of them from their own establishments.

THE CHANrEL FLEET'S MOVEMENTS
General Yule's Retreat Was Most Disastrous and Is Generally
Regarded as a Great Yictory for tbe Courage

It cannot b doubted, whatever may
be the attitude of rctlconoe or even de-j

and to dlapatch a large force to the'
Cape undor a commanding officer and

roRarded as an extremely wise and pru

Cupe Is England's natural route and
half- way route to India and Persia.
If the secret history of the present
crisis could be told, It would be found
that the forolgn offices of Great Britain
and Germany have never been on more
friendly terms. This fact must be tak-

The usual phrases are used by the
military writers here to disguise the
real nature of General Yule's move

a scientific change of base, a brilliant
strategic maneuver, a reconnolsance In
face of the enemy's position, and a pru
