During the past few days we have talked exclusively on Men's and Boys' Clothing, and an exceptionally fine lino of
Overcoats which were placed at prices that drew even the attention and presence of Portlanders to givo thorn a trial;
and all who purchased are mightily proud of the bargains tin y realized.

m Something Else to Say
13 is this: We have in stock a rich and varied assortment of Underwear and Neckwear that in comparison is fully as reasonable to buy as the Clothing.
Really these goods must be seen to be appreciated. They are new strictly so in material ami design, and are identically the same class of ;oods as will be found on sale at this moment in the
leading houses of New York City.

Read the price we are now making on Swift's goods. As
is well known, Mr. Swift is recognized the country over as the
most conscientious manufacturer in this line to be found any
where. SWIFT'S CONDE WOOL-RIBBED UNDER
WEAR, $1.50 per suit. Always heretofore they have been
more than cheap at $2.00.
Here is a line of Camel's Hair and National. Wool Un
derwear at 50 cents per garment. They are excellent for the
price asked and are sure to please the purchaser. Many of
our best people select them by reason of the soft character of

T-B. Tliese are what are known ns Ribbed Wool Shirts and
Drawers. We have decidi-d for a few days only to Hell them
at $2.00 a suit. This is a remarkably low figure, if you are
posted as to values in this direction.
And now we are making a still further cut on the justly celebrated Lu
zerne Underwear. Think of it! Only $2.50 a suit. We have just been
selling it at $3.00, but we want the bulk of Astoria's trade and we propose
to get it. You cannot beat this price nor the goods anywhere on earth.
This Week, Wright's Health-Fleeced Underwear, $2.50 per suit. All who
wear underwear will understand that this is an amazingly cheap price for
Wright's noted make, They are unexcelled for winter on account of be
ing fleece-lined on the inside.
In the same connection we have the Famous Arabian Fierce Underwear.
We are also cutting it for the time being to $2.50 per suit.

"Of course the war will greatly in

The. producers of th United States are
already reaping benefits from the oondl

during the present year.

for her supplies. She is now purchas

South Africa large quantities of canned
beef about which such a howl went up
in this country during the Spanish war.
There is nothing the matter with that
beef; it is the best of its kind In the
world, and England knows It. She has
been using large quantities of it for
years. England Is compelled to uso the
beef. She can not feed her army In
