GALL. ALLOW US TO Me a few Remarks Said a wise iinin : " Let me mako the songa ol' a nation, mul I care not who malees its laws." This was once quoted in the hearing of a celebrated wit, who replied : " Hut let me see the dress a man has worn and I will teil you his history." We leave it to others to argue fro ftnd ron as to which of them gave utterance to the more philosophical reflection. But we frankly confess that the weight of probability seems to iis to rest wit h the latter proposition. Nothiog external seems to be more indicativo of charactcr than the dress. We do not la y this down as a rule from which there can be no deviation, but common senae will support us in saying that clothing is a most important element in determining both individual and national character. Clothing ranks next to food in importance. It oannot be absent without involving barbarism, partial or entire. The need of it was the first thing perceived by our first parents when they had attained by questionable meang the knowledge of good and evil. lf we trace the developments through which the clothing of mankind has passed since then, we are forced to the conclusión that the manufacture of clothin ranks next in vital itnportance to sgri culture, which was given priority b; the command to dress and till tb ground. And as an element and indi catio'n of civilization it is of even high er value, the savage in his nakodness the ancient Druid offering human sac rifices of rodies clothed like his owu - in paint. The unclothed condition of th heathen of to-day are instances whicl demónstrate the proposition that cloth ing and civilization are inseparable. You must all wear clothing, and w are generous enough to wish you ma; all wear good fitting and well mad goods. We are endeavoring to do ou share of business; we believe we ar entitled to it, and have only to convine you of the fact to secure it. If you ask why, we anawer : Because our stock is large, carefully selected, and we] made ; because our prices are as low a can be found anywhere in the State We have taken extra pains this sprin in making a large and fino selection o Boys' School Suits, also in suits wit! knee panta for boya from 3 to 8 year old. A few more remarks and we wil bring this to a close. My Merchan Tailoring Department is complete. In the future as in the past we shall en deavor to keep a large assortment of a fine goods an the market affords, in bot] foreign and domestic makes ; and as fo our trimming and cut it needs no cora ment, as thousands can testify to ou superior taste and knowledge in tha direction.
