MORROW'S VISIT. Rev. G. W. Morrow gave an earnest and inspiring address at the Congregational church on Sunday evening in behalf of the work of the Anti-Saloon League of Vermont. In a concise and forcible manner he set before his audience the calamities which are sure to befall our fair state if the license bill finds an entrance into cur legislature. Our prohibitory law has proved a restriction and a blessing for half a century, and its overthrow would mean ruin and disgrace to our state. This question is of interest to every individual. Eighty per cent of the nation's crime and pauperism is the fruit of the liquor traffic. The saloon gets every fifth boy; it is the enemy of society, of business, of the church, of everything that stands for uprightness and national progress. The business corporations of the country are constantly drawing the line more tightly and a 'young man must order his life on principles of total abstinence if he would hold a position. We do not want high license, we do not want local option. The people of Vermont must arouse and assert themselves, they must stand together and make a grand fight for the sustaining and retaining of our prohibitory law. .' YOUNG MEN . The nobbieBt line of young men's suits in all the latest novelties, ranging m price from $6.50 to $18.00, may be found at . our store. Not a "kept; over" in the lot but everything new and fresh and the very latest The famous Nusax suit with mili tary shoulders and cuffs on sleeves is the very latest fad this season. Ask to see them. MOTHERS In every town or city where our stores are located we enjoy a reputation for excellence in variety, quality, apd style, in our Boys' Department that has been' one of our greatest business builders. V VjCi! The boy is father to the man.', "if, a boy's clothing comes from our store when he's a man he's quite likely to buy his clothing from , us andj perhaps, his boy's clothing, too that's the reason we pay so much attention to our boys' department. He's going to be a man some day and it's ths man we're after.
