The nice thing about a rain
coat is, you can wear it in shine
as well as rain, and look well.
The best fact about our rain
coats is, they're made for us by
Hart Schaflher & Marx, which
is only a short way of saying
that there are no better rain
coats to be had anywhere ; and
that you'll think so yourself if
you buy one. We have plenty
of other good overcoats to show
you ; we'll show you the Hart
Schaflher & Marx label in
them: a small thing to look for,
a big thing to find.

May Go to Federal Courts.
Denver, Colo., June I. Tho closing
of the Portland mine at Victor by or
der of Adjutant General Sherman M.

case to test the power of Governor Pea-

power In the district declared to be

The Portland Gold Mining Company
