Putting a Stop to
In spite of all you can do, boys seem to
be always in need of new clothes. The
wear and tear is caused mostly by his in
tensely investigative turn of mind and
strenuous play both being only natural
and healthy indications of boyishness.
And yet, the boy's personal appearance
contributes more largely than any other
factor to the development of his self-reliance
and self-respect.
XTRAG00D Clothes for Boys
Will give him the best possible personal
appearance, being designed and made
with the same care given to men's clothes.
Because of this, they last longer and
maintain during the time of their wear a
better appearance than ordinarily accom
plished by boys' clothing.
Norfolks, Juniors and Vestee suits in
many styles and fabrics. For all ages of
boy. Call and let us show you.

Stocks Trend Downward

New York, March 4. In the stc-i;
market today, it was apparent that :l
definite trend of prices had ecase.j
at least temporarily. The day's mo.
ment was irregular on a very mode!
ate volume of transactions. Fraction! I
losses were the rule on most stock-,
while noteworthy advances were fo'v
and liisigniticaut.
I'erhaps a safe conclusion is that the
market reflected t lie Washington pes)
ponement of action on the intcriiution;
dispute, and also perhaps it was umle -mined
about the outcome of the figh:
ing in Franco.
There was little in the day's news
influence linanciai sentiment, oxecp.
the testimony from all quarters as t
an aggressive, prosperous general bus
ness activity.
The stheel business naturally hob1-,
the leadership, yet the trend of iiiuii
industries is appareutily similar.
