INSTITUTIONS OF CITY EQUAL TO ANY IN THIS PART OF KEYSTONE STATE COFHOJL,§¥II3LL3S B S Our commercial and civic organisa- tions, our merchants and manufacturers and our religious organizations are trying Lo build conditions which will make patrons for our city, and one of the greatest prablems arising is how to make conditions that will make permanent patrons for the things which our city has to offer. People are not drawn to cities by accident. Something must''be there to attract them. So it is in the matter of buying in Conneilsville. It must ·be made a£ljp.ctm. Our .people generally recognize that we have one of the best school. systems la the state;, that we have transportation Ia,i:ilities surpassed by few other towns in tiie state; that we have very favorablo ind'Uttrial conditions; that we have fine cfaurces with wide a-wxdie church societies; .that we bare cheap dKiLrie power and fuel, and desiraluo labor ooad-itions; that ·we have a £ood home town and a Teal civic spirit, but how m«uy or our po- I pte realize that we have home merchants and liome industries that are tire equal of any and surpassed by none in towns o£ like size? OonnellGville inustrres canaot produce, neither can CouneUsviile merchants Ejupply all tho things that are consumed within the city--bat why go · elsewhere for what can be furnished I right at our door, and if it must be ordered why not have our local merchants order it for you? The local rnerchant^ deserve patronage of 'local peop-le "and The Courier deserves a chance to bid on your job work. Liberty Bonds Today! Liberty Boys and Liberty Bonds will help make this world a more decent place to live in. Every week or so we see American troops march away--and not all of them will return. Just how many DO return depends in a large measure upon the Bonds we buy to support them. See That Every Member of Your Family Owns at Least One Bond Stout Women Can Wear Fashionable Apparel A welcome assertion to those who have nqt yet learned that we specialize in scientifically designed apparel for stout women. Every garment is made on correct proportioned measurements, incorporating every fashion departure that is adaptable, to full'figures. Many stout women are experiencing a new satisfaction in dress since wearing Wright-Metzler stylish stout apparel. New Wool Dress Goods for Dresses, Suits and Coats Fashion calls for simple lines. So beauty and distinction, must come from tie fabric. We had this in mind when choosing our Dress Goods. Color can lend distinction. So can quality. So can design. If these are wrong, noUiing can make the dress right. But they are not wrong here. No fabric or color is missing that fashion demands. \o price is missing for inexpensive or costly wear. Many Attractive New Styles in Choice of Silk or Wool Women's.Sweaters were never more delightfully attractive--more beautifully fashioned-nor shown in-such artistic color combinations. This is the time when every woman and girl needs one the most--and we don't believe anyone will be without one who sees this charming collection and realizes how surprisingly reasoaable prices are.
