We Come Out for "Well Dressed" Kiddies
It is neither extravagant nor expensive for the mother to dress her children smartly when
they return to school. The question of dress has so much to do with the kiddies standing
in class and with classmates, with their ambitions and deportment, that good clothes are
not an extravagance but a well repaid investment.
With prices for good children's things as low as we quote, there need be no hesitancy in
coming here and buying the entire outfit from head to heel.
Included in this sale are Novelty Suits for juveniles and regular knickerbocker Norfolk
styles in various colors and cloths.
Juvenile sizes 2 1-2 to 8 years; boys sizes 3 to 17 years. Blue serges exempted in this sale.
Boys' $6.00, $6.50 and $7.00 Suits and Overcoats f $4.95

the embargo placed by Great Britain
on this commodity may be lifted or
modified, but if this should not take
place the chief market will be closed.
Much depends on the volume of vield
! of English hops. The British embargo
on hops is part of an economic plan to r
! limit as far as possible that nation's!!
consumption of non-necessities. The 1 1

more urgent purposes. Furthermore, it
! is stated that there is a determination

While there is a decrease in the'
quantity of beer made in the United ! t
States, compared with previous years,
a factor contributing to less demand
for hops is the less percentage of
hops used for brewing. In 1900 .953
of a pound of hops entered a bailer or
brewed beer, while in 1912 the average
in United States breweries had fallen to
,o2 of a pound.

for the pew crop. The Bulletin quotes
