BUT SOME PEOPLE PONT THINK SO, and yet if you were at The Chicago Store today, you would not doubt my word. I told ycu in yesterday's
paper that I was going to sell out The Chicago Store's grocery department, in double quick time, and without regard to cost or profits, and
from the way it went today, Fll have the entire stock sold out before I get started, it went like hot cakes today, no wonder you can buy it at
wholesale prices, and less, but you, must come early as some lines get sold out quicker than others, be here in the morning early.

President Kerr tnbl the board that
he had held a personal conference with
every department head, urging the ne
cessity of the most rigid economy- in
making out estimates for the. coming
year, mid that these men had excluded
everything nut deemed absolutely es
scuti.il to the accomplishment of their
work. Although these specialists know
the condition and nee.ds of their work
us intimately a?- it can be known, it
was necessary to make the heavy cut
in their recommendations.
There will be no new buildings au

nard I'nss, in which Marguerite Clark
is starr.nl by the Fnmous l'layers Film

This stilling tale, which is the feature

that delightful star has been seen since
"Helen of the North.'1
The story is as follows: Klsie is a
young Alpine shepherdess whose know
ledge of the world is limited to th
jagged horizon of the giant peaks which
surround her simple cottage. Rudolph,
a guide, is deeply in love with the girl,
but she does not quite trust him. There
comes to the St. Bernard monastery,
-near which Klsie lives, a young rone
namol Reggie Van Rensselaer, who has
come to the All's) to rorget the beauti
ful and alluring Cleo who has descried
him for another.
Reggie engagcH Rudolph as his guide
and the latter soon discovers that the
stranger is becoming too fond of KI.m-3.
He is dismissed by Reggie and, becom
ing suspicious, follows him to a great
rock where he meets fse. Concealed
from view, Rudolph hears Klsie agree to
accompany Reggie to Knglund on the
following day. The guide is engaged to
convey tliem safely down the trail, but
before he and Reggie reach Klsie 'a cot
tage, Rudolph slashes the rope from j
which his rival is dangling ami sends r
him hurling down the precipice. Thej
snow saves Reggie's life and he is tnu-j
en to Klsie 's home to recover from the
terrible battering which he received in i
his headlong plunge.
