Easter is an occasion on which we may ask for p, world of peace and freedom.— all of us blending our voices as if we were uttering one universal wish.

New shoes have been arriving by the truckload until it just seems we have everything on the market that is new and up-to-date. This holds good in men's oxfords, women's dress slippers, and in the boys' and girls' lines. Men's shoes and oxfords from $1.25 up to Nunn-Bush. Ladies' straps, high ties and pumps, from 9Sc to $4.90. Children's oxfords and straps from 45c to $1.98. Shoes to match any purse and please anybody. The only trouble with men's and boys' suits is we did not buy half enough of them. They are selling as fast as they arrive. New models, snappy styles, and the latest colors. Mrs. Tribon in the Bargain Basement is dishing out blessings to mankind or rather womankind. She is selling lots of dresses and has a shoe business all her own.
