Do you know that there is 8 vast difference
in the make op, lining, Bewing and general
flniuli of clothing.
Tlioro ia the "made to ttU" kind, pretty
pattern, gaudy linings, but there's no Krtiofuc
tion in the wear; it is made in a hurry ly
underpaid labor; just "made to sell."
Then there's the "made to wear" kind, pro
perly tthrunk, plain but strong linings, the
"vitals," or inHido paddings, properly adjusted'
sewod with silk, niado by skilled labur and xold
The "made to wear" kind costa u little more
than tin "made to sell'' kind, but, dt'ur me, it
in over ho much better.
We sell the mudu to weur kind.

the Rand Rifles, has arrived In this

broke out Dr. Herts was expell?dfrom
Johannesburg by Mr. Kruger for belna;
a 1'ltlander. He has since visited many
of the British concentration camps in
South Africa Of these camps and on
kindred subject. Dr. Herts fays:
"The stories of the British cruelties
towards the wives and families of the
Boers In the concentration camps are
absurd It is not the fighting Boer who
makes these charges, but the stay-at
homes. Why, the Boer In the Held
sends his family to the British to take
care of, so that he will not be hara-
ered by them while fighting.. While
