er despite Eastern weakness. Cattle
were also higher, while sheep and

In the cattle alleys there continues
ar. absence of really worthwhile qual
ity stuff. The official run was 789
hi ad, but most of the 12 cars due late
in the day were reported to be cattle.
No change was o.uuted for top steers
because of the absence of that quality
but other steers and cows and heifers
were ahout a quarter above Saturday.
Most of the strength, In cattle was
due to the small run.

The enthusiasm with which our
friends have seized the opportun
ity to buy good clothes at $21.50 has
made great inroads upon the large
number of suits we offered at this
extremely low price.
While many men in Pendleton1
are already wearing a suit from
this low priced group a good as
sortment still remains.
To this splendid showing of suits
so economically , priced we have
added two more groups that dis
play worth at the price as much out
of the ordinary as in the assort
ment at $21.50.
$29.50 AND $34.75
Clothes of the cleverest styles,
fashioned of highest grade fabrics
by tailors of national reputation
make up these two new lots.
Don't think of buying a new suit
for the Holidays, without investi
gating the savings offered by our
cash selling plan.
No Charge for Alterations.

NEW YOKK, Nov. 23. In the ver
nacular of the speculative clement the
stock market Monday "turned the cor

ffstlng an unmistakable disposition to
throw off the acute depression of the
last three weeks. The improvement
extending from 2 to almost 10 points
in many issues, was accomplished in
the face of renewed unsettlement in
other markets for leading staples, not
ably grains and other foodstuffs.
ICventfl over the Sunday recess were
niainly helpful to the recovery of
stocks. Ixical federal reserves
strengthened and call money dropped
to five percent, the lowest quotation
in many months.
