A branch of that faithful band exists in Port Jand, and is known here, "as elsewhere, as the Con sumers' Leatue." This bodv of humanitarian women has requested many of the larger leading retail 'establishments of the country to send out circulars asking you to buy Christmas goods early and thereby lessen the strain of the last two pre-Christmaa weeks.

And by this same token we not only say you may buy Christmas gifts early now but in every section of this great store we ve everything in holiday readi ness, so that you CAN buy.
