A Cheerful Welcome To All Students of Hope At our store you will find an impressive dis play of F a 11 Clothing-- fresh, original fall conceptions, with the peculiarly effective style-quality for which our garments are famous.



ELCOME! t hou month when everythi ng's just righ t; Now shade and sunshine both afford delight; Now Summer's sultry, stifling heat has passed, Not yet has come the chilly autumn blast. Nocturnal frosts and constant showers by day I lave not appeared to make a permanent stay. Of equal length are now both day and night,This is the month when everything's just right.

N Oheat or cold at night prevents our sleep,

Refreshing now our slumber, sound and deep. No dust nor mud upon the road is found, While soft, new g rass again bt•decks the ground; The orchard trees a heavy bu rden bear Of luscious, mellow fru it, and st ill they wear Their ~ummer garb of leaves, fresh , green, and br ight,All hail the month when everything's just right!

Our Clothes are all made of pure, supple, all-wool

of the harvest days has ceased, T HEFromhurry sweat and toil the fanner is released; His barns are filled with plenty for his flocks And herds. Next winter's month of need he mocks, For on his farm he's grown a bounteous store Of fruits a nd greenstuffs for his cellar floor. The apples, melons, grapes, a tempting sight, All crown the month when ever ything's just right.

Fabrics hereT hewithillustration shows one of the leading styles of F a 11 Overcoats with handsome Shawl Collar, either with half belt or full belt. The correct model for the coming fa ll and winter. When purchasing a Suit or Overcoat

N OW school-bells ri ng again their "dong, ding, dong'' To call the children back \•here they belong;

Now mothers from a load of care are freed, And teachers labor for their monthly meed. Each student now resumes his proper place, Rt:freshed and strengthened f or the mental race; Each one is eager to renew the fight In t his glad month when everyth i ng's just right.

N OW pastors to their charges have returned From summer t rips a nd holidays well-ear ned.

Consume Gas and Soot


With the HollaTtf! Air-Admitting Firepot, the esbes are always dropped away and the fire is n ext to the castings, wbero it ~ves. intense beat and .beats the castings equally around the enttre cucumference. Thts makes the Holland Furnace, without exception, the most enduring, as well as the most economical, furnace made. 'We want to show you other patented features also. The Holland patented radiator travels the smoke full diameter of casing or direct to flue, as damper construction operates from the outside of casing, whereby a direct draft may be had by simply lifting a weight hanging in front of furnace, which allow• quick escape for smoke while feeding the furnace and ~events muoking of feed door, etc. Smoke al so travels twice a far. which saves waste, and you get equal heat for all pipes.
