Help Digest the Men! Easily
Good food in. itself is harmless.
The usual reason stomach troubles
arise- Isv due- t faulty digestion
brought about by overworking the
body or brain, sickness, overeating,
late hours, etc.
The best way to correct faulty
stomach troubles and digestive mis
takes is .to do what nature wants.
All that nature usually needs is a
little assistance to do this work.
This is why doctors tell you to diet.
By not eating nature is compelled to
aid herself. You do not then over
work her when she is already ex
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets go in
to your stomach just like food. They
help digest this food. Then they en
rich the blood, and thus when the
next meal is eaten the system is bet
ter prepared to do Its work without
assistance or at least less harmfully.
By following this natural habit
many have corrected their stomach
troubles, and have conquered the old
"bugbear" of indigestion.
Always take a Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablet after meals or Just before bed
time. By doing this you will be act
ing wisely and playing safe.

ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING IN THE STORE RE
DUCED WITHOUT A SINGLE EXCEPTION
From 10 per cent to 20 per cent and in many odd lots and broken lines even more
in order to dispose of our large stock quickly.
You may think that merchandise is high at present prices, hut the advances since
January first ha-e been alarming and the prices announced this week by Eastern Mills
for Fall Lines are absolutely staggering.
The following list of a few staple items will give you an idea of what is happening
in the wholesale market this season.
Taffeta Silks cost before the war 70c per yard, now cost $3.00 yard
Skinner's Satins cost before the war 90c per yard, now cost $3,25 yard
Dress Ginghams cost before the war 8 l-2c per yard, now cost .....37 l-2c yard
Calico cost before the war 3 l-2c per yard, now cost 21c yard
Outing Flannels cost before the war 9c per yard, now cost 42c yard
Cotton Blankets cost before the war 70c per pair, now cost , $2.90 pair
Wansutta Nainsook cost before the war 12 l-2c per yard, now cost 60c yard

. Yams have advanced $1.10 per pound in the Eastern Market during the past two
weeks. Corsets have advanced one-third in price since January first.
Women's Mercerized Hose
Which formerly cost $2.30 per dozen have advanced to $8.00 per dozen. The Dry
Goods Economist states this week that Fall prices on Wool Dress Goods show an ad
vance of 60 per cent over l?st Fall's prices.
Merchandise is scarce and continually advancing.
You know the standard quality of goods we have always carried.
If you knew the present condition of the market as merchants know it, you would
provide for your wants for the next two years.
Every, purchase during this sale means a substantial saving over present prices and '
will protect you from the tremendous advances which have already become effective in
wholesale lines. -
