Do you know that thoje is a vast difioronco
la the inako up, lining, sewing and general
finish of clothing.
There is tho "made to noil" kind,; pretty
patterns, gaudy linings, but there's no natisfac
tion in the wear; it is made in a hurry by
underpaid labor; just "made to sell."
Then there's the "made to wear" kind, pro"
perly shrunk, plain but strong linings, the
"vital," or insido paddings, properly adjusted
sewed with silk, made by skilled labor and sold
on honor. - ' . .
The "made to wear" kind cot-is a little more
than tin ' Inado to sell" kind, but, dear me, it
is ever so much better.
We sell tho made to wear kind.

There Seems no Limit to the
Avarice of Modern ,
Bikies Circulars Sent From
America to England to be "
fteiuaUed to Iteat
Uncle Nam. '
NEW YORK, April X9.-It, seems
naraiy creaime tnat ousiness circulars
of Arms In the United States should
be sent to England to be mailed here
to addresses In the United State for
the purpose of saving postage, yet this
is the actual fact, according1 to the
Herald correspondent at London.
This curious state of affairs Is sail
to have been revealed at Liverpool
by treasury instructions to the cus
tome officials located there.
These officers have been ordered tp
seize large consignments of circular's
sent by business men in the United
States to their. Liverpool agents. These
firms receive circulars In bulk, which.
are then addressed, have a half penny
stamp put upon each and are dumped:
into the Liverpool poatofBce to be
carried back to America In the mails.
The postage rata under the laws of
Great Britain for such circulars is halt
penny for two ounces to all countries
in the postal union, but In the United
States ths postage U two cents,' equiv
alent to one penny.
It Is therefore obvious that business
di ms who send out "thousands of circu
lars each week, can save mon'jjt by
shipping them In bulk at a low rate
of freight to Liverpool and then hav
ing them sent back to the United
The attention of the .treasury officials
was called to this matter by an offi
cial In the Liverpool poutoffice who
noticed that several large consign
ments of American trade circulars ad- .
dressed to parties In the United States
had ben posted in Liverpool. He In.
vestigated the matter and found thai
the practice had been In vogue for
some Uttle time.
The result of his Investigation Is
that Immediat" steps have been taken
to stop the business. ;
