- Lamartine in 1848 at Paris
in Introducing a Statesman
of recognized .integrity and trusted by the
people, to a riotous mob in the streets said:
"Listen, citizens. It is sixty years, as you know,
of a noble life that is about to address you."
The multitude calmed instantly when the
face of the friend that never misled them
They listened to his words of wisdom, and,
at his request, dispersed quietly that day when
the city was at the mercy of an inflamed
This great city of Philadelphia has more
than doubled in size and population .since the
first announcement of this business was made,
and the man, almost 90 years old, whose card
has just come in, appears piloted by his two
daughters, who introduce him.
Listen to what this aged and honored

"Do you remember me, sir? My store was
just opposite to yours in 1861, and I saw- you
taking down your shutters the first time.
"Everybody said you were foolish to start
at such a time, and prophesied your failure.
You handed your neighbors the first card you
printed,4 saying you would not sell clothes with
cotton in the cloth. One of us said to you, 'Do
you really mean that?' and your reply was,
'You may bet your life on it. We certainly do
mean that.' And you fought it out until the
people knew arid believed in you.
"Thenyou moved up to 13th Street, and we
were all watching you and doubting your
success when you began the New Kind of Store,
as you called it, which seemed so hazardous that
it puzzled everybody when you announced that,
your business would be strictly governed by
certain principles.
"And, by George! Here you are yet, still
keeping the faith of what you told us in 1861
and what you told your customers for almost
sixty years. What next?"
Why, just this, we shall keep straight on.
The "pendulum of the old clock will swing right
on through all weathers and all years, and we
shall make good every word we have spoken or

Men Know What Is Meant
by a Baggy Appearance
J They know that it is the price some men pay for
a feeling of coolness in their Summer clothes.
Well, it is far too high a price ; especially since a
man can have all the coolness he wants and all the
gracefulness of line along with that.
Q It lies with the man himself to make sure of both.
It depends upon where he chooses his Summer suit.
I There are plenty of Summer suits, both of the
regular worsted and serge kind and of the tropical
kind that will keep a man as cool as he wants to be
but only at the expense of his appearance.

the best lines and tailored to hold them.
