We have men's shoes and oxfords at $1.59, $$1.98, $2.25, and $2.48 all marked down for this special sale. They are all real bargains and priced well below regular retail. We have two deals in this sale that are the greatest values I ever offered any community. One of them is the men's oxfords we are selling at $2.98, and the other is our Diamond Brand work. shoe at $2.45, About 34p pairs of men's oxfords, all late styles in black, gray, dark brown, and two-tones. In this lot you find such shoes as Edgerton $5.00 oxfords, Country Club, a regular $5.00 oxford, Tradebuilders, and others equally as good. All new standard shoes. Your choide, any pair $2.98. This is an out and out bargain. When you see them you will know it is time to buy your oxfords -for Easter. Our Diamond Brand men's work shoe is the most satisfactory shoe I ever retailed and that over a period of 50 years selling shoes. I can not say enough for Peters Diamond shoes. They fit the feet and are comfortable during the long days of summer, fall, and winter. They are of solid leather construction. Wet days or dry they stand up and keep their shape. We have them at $1.98 and at $2.45 a pair. We have cheaper work shoes and some we get more money for, but no shoe at any price can give, more wear and comfort than the one we have in this sale at $2.45. It is a shoe that gives the customer satisfaction. TUB SHOD . tlonary war fame was being made at the opera house between shows. ^. J. Dickinson was to ask for field glasses for the navy.

F. McFarland recently received a letter from Mrs. Ruth Hanna-McCormlck-Slmms regarding buying the Goo. W. Hanna bank land at Lu Verne, a relative of hers. She will further investigate the land on her return to the United States in May. There are about 3900 acres in this tract. The words " a relative of hers" seems to mean Mr. McFarland, a widely known pioneer West Bend merchant who was defeated by eo. W. Patteraon, Burt, for state senator in this district some years ago. Mrs? Simms was a daughter of the famous Mark Hanna, Ohio street car magnate who managed President McKinley's 1896 campaign in 1896 and later became senator. Mrs. Simms' first hus- jand, who also became a senator, was a member of the famed Mc- lormick newspaper family at Chi- cago G. S. Buchanan, Algona, has from the start been receiver for the Hanna bank and estate aud has won praise as a successful manager. Ames 'Vet-to-Be' to Locate at Ringsted Geo. G.
