is prompted by genome economy. :
These Coats and Suits are splendid goods, bought
for cash Jn eastern manufacturing centers, and are the
very latest this year's product of the leading eastern de
signers. We are taking a heavy loss on them and you
will be the gainer. In many instances tne regular pne
has been cut in two, and the regular price is based upon
close buying and close selling for cash only. . In fact, no
more wonderful bargains in these garments were ever
offered in any Umatilla county store than await you right
now in the Cloak and SUIT department of the WESTON
MERCANTILE COMPANY. , . r
.. ; There is no time limit to this sale but we would ad
vise you to call early in order to get the pick of our large

merchandizing event. It is a bona fide clearance at sac
rifice prices of new, bright, well-chosen, this year's goods.
You have only to visit our store, see our beautiful display
