What is true Economy? Just hunting the town over,
for a bargain or two. No, indeed jnot it is not worth
the shoe leather to say nothing about the waste val
uable time. Is it standing for half an hour in some
store1 waiting to be waited on by an insufficient amount
Of clerk help, -with the false idea of; saving money?
Again, NO ! The busy housewife knows only too well
her time is valuable. The tired working man knows too
the trial of his patience when a clerk .has to rush him
through his order, giving him no time to think or ques
tion, but he submits because he thinks he is saving a
little money. But is it so? Are you real sure you are
saving, and practicing real economy? -What is true
Economy? True Economy consist of Ja combination , of
low prices, Quality and prompt service
Trade in the store that can meet ALL of these require
ments. LEHMAN'S GROCERY is doing this every day.

millions of dollars possessed by
his ; clients' families had been a
positive handicap : to the defense.
He spoke too of the attitude of
local newspapers, which he charge
ed. i had inflamed public opinion
against Leopold and Loeb. "There
are times ' when ; poverty Is fortu
nate, and this is one of those
times.'l he said. "Wildly extrava

" To Get Nominal Fees
Mr jDarrow denied that, pointr
Ing out that the experts called by
the defense were to receive fees
based upon their regular charges
for professional services, and that
he and his assistants had agreed
to take a a amount as the Chicago
Bar association ; thought proper.
. He declared that the state's
attorney was asking for a death
sentence in the' face of conditions
that riiade It contrary to preced
ent, and frankly admitted that the
defense had pleaded guilty be
cause jthey "were afraid to place
the case before a jury"
i, A ppreciate Responsibility
He said he and his assistants
fully realized the heavy responsi
bility they had placed on the judge

If these boys hang there can be

can' never explain . a Hanging by
saying that other courts overpow

little,' he said. "He was dead
