Merchant Tailor-made Suits are
It has been claimed that ready-made clothes are cheapest
because they are made in quantities. This is not true.
If the manufacturer could have people come to his fac
tory and buy there, he could not even then give good value be
cause of the poor quality of material and inferior workmanship.
To the original cost of the garment, the manufacturer
must pay traveling salesmen's expenses and the retailer adds
another profit of about 40 per cent
The original "quality price" is thereby lost and the price
is higher than that of a carefully merchant tailored suit made
There are a great many men in this town who are
proud to say we make their clothes.

with a beantifol silver table piece, a

faitthfully as president. Refresh
ments of punch and cake were served
by the ladies, and Mr. and Mrs. Reid

Foot Badly Cut.
Young Edward Notson is now con
fined to his home in Hepnner and
nursing a badly cut foot. Tha acci
dent haDDcned to him on Friday eve
ning: at the swimming hole oo Willow
crek wheie he was swimming with
a counle of other boys, Kenneth Binns
and Brownnll Pratt. The boys were
riding a raft and Edward made a jump
into the water, landing on the ragged
edge of a broken bottle. A nastv
woond was made in his foot and the
main artery was severed. His com
panions twisted a handkerchief around
the foot above the wound and succeed
ed in stooping the flow of blood, and
brought the injured boy borne aa rap
idly as possible. A physician was
called and took the boy to the hospi
tal when his wound was dressed and
stitched up. In cleaning oat the
wound, two pieces of the broken bot
tle were removed from between the
bones of the foot, and an examination
showed that the member was practio
ally cat from bottom to top.

While branding dorses out at his
plaoe cn Butter creek one day the
past week Jake Pearsou was quite
severely kicked by one of the
animals. The beys were doing the
work and one of them, having
received a jolt from the heels of
the horse, Jake stepped in to show
the boys how to do it; he goc his,
also, and with sufficient force that
he was laid out for the time being,
No serious damage was done his
anatomy, however, and be is about
again as usual. It seemed to be a
day of ill luck for the whole
family. The same day George was
riding a horse that fell on him, and
Wiley, another son, fell down and
had his nose stepped on by another
horse. The net results were no
bones broken, and all parties ate able
to bobble around again. Ihe next
time they have horses to brand they
will "Let George do it"
