chopped n bottle of flr. I wtis alwajs
under the Imptesslon that TJob would

would loot the plate eonifoi tahly; but
when t heaid him talking of selling the
plaie so audui lotisly, well, my In oath
scorned a bit tight on my t best.

Into the diawlng loom, and I didn't
sec Hob again that night. Inn Just af

Klehtnond to ask Mr. Wootbow to
come to Snndllands at once.
"Who's WootliowV" I nuked Klovun

"Couldn't hive happened moie con

"And jou will send my Jewels oxei
toinonow? Kupeit Is so ,intous to
see me dot ked in the i.unllv diamond."
"1 shall biing them oxer mvself."
I had heai tl .i lot about those dia

thought ot Rob's smai tness.
T ti ied to have a woitl oi two with
Hob lint he alwav.s scorned to tiown
when I appioaebed him, and J lomem
boied bis InstiuctloiiFi not to s-pe.ik to
him until I was jioken to
Hut, to tell the ttuth I began to get
a bit tumbled about Miss Nellj. I
thought Hob was going- a bit too f.u.

If you take the
trouble to exam
ine this system
will be surprised
how far ahead it
is of the Custom
It's the care and
thought of every
detail with the
combination o f
stylish cloth pat
tailoring and the
fitting of every
garment to living models that makes this Atterbury
System popular among men who always wor
shipped at the custom tailors' shrine. There are
many distinguishing features that cannot be explained
fully in this writing; visit our 4tAtterbury" floor, there
these fine examples of the Tailor's Art can be fully
demonstrated. Just a little talk on our part without
that usual pressing to buy.
