THE tJPPM DES MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 80, 1809, THE Ladies' Home Journal. T HE " ads." in this popular ladies' magazine are an interesting feature ; they are all works of art, and it is a well-known fact that they are announcements of reliable business houses only —no others will be accepted. In looking over a recent uum- ber we were surprised to see how many of these advertised goods we have in stock : FIRST OF ALL there are the well-known Thompson Glove-fitting Corsets, of which we have a fine assortment on hand. Next the " Oneita" Elastic Ribbed Union Suits. Then the " Burlington" brand of Hosiery, the best line on the market. The celebrated Simmons line of Ladies' Kid Gloves, which includes a dollar glove in black and all colors, which we can warrant to our trade. The Philadelphia Cloak and Suit Company's line of Ladies' Suits. AND THE BEST part of it all is the fact that you can obtain all of these articles as cheap, and in some instances cheaper than you would if you bought them direct from the makers. Chrischilles & Herbst. Have you seen those beautiful Golf Capes AT- i A 1S Taylor's? It will pay you to look at them. They are the correct thing for Fall.
