Visiting the Shops With Adele
DO you know that the manufacturers have been trying to keep Mr.
Doutrich from reducing his merchandise? They argue that because
of high market conditions he should carry over as much of his old
stock as possible. But Mr. Doutrich does not agree. He claims that it
is the policy of this "Live Store" to hold annual clearance sales and that
nothing can alter that plan. He insists that he would rather rid the store
of all old goods and give the public a yearly opportunity to benefit by an
enormous purchasing power than to carry things from one season to
another. In other words he stands firm on keeping faith with the public
no matter what the cost is to himself. Isn't that a generous spirit?
( (TT7HAT is so rare as a day in
yy June?"asks the poet. And,
may I add, "What is so
mysteriously beautiful as a night in
June?" Nothing. T- should say. Tf
you fail to agree with me, just go
down to Saltzgiver's, 223 North Sec
ond street and take a long look at
the picture in one of the windows.
The artist, T. C. Gotch. has called it
"Night in June," and it fills one
with a consuming desire to ever live
In a continuous succession of just
such June nights, in just such a gar
den. An elusive, baffling air of ro
mance and happiness hovers about.
Dark and hazy, except where the
swaying Japanese lanterns burn
vivid splotches in the dull night
shades, it grips one as few things
d 0"
RUGS are scarce articles these '
days and procuring a new one
oftimes becomes a serious
problem. But all difficulties can be
avoided by going to J. Porter Har
ris & Son, 221 North Second street,
and placing an order for a seam
less rug in any length and practi
cally any width desired. If you
want one for fall, however, attend
to the matter at once, for it takes
from 6 to 8 weeks for them to ar
rive. Just the same, they're worth
waiting for! They come in all
shades. Some are single-toned
while others are two-toned with
small figures. And they are es
pecially desirable because of their
unusual high quality combined with
the fact that you can order just
exactly the kind you want to carry
out any decorative scheme.
<{Q<HOE tho little horse,
Shoe the little mare.
Let the little colt go
Bare, bare, bare."
It seems like cruelty to tho little
colt doesn't It? But some of us
don't bother a bit about that when
the steadily increasing price of foot
wear brings us on the verge of a
similar shoeless fate. Just the same.
If we took time for a second thought,
we'd cease our worrying and start
straight for Paul's, 11 North Fourth
street, where the low shoes still re
maining in stock are being sold at
prices which justify our buying sev
eral pairs and reserving them for
next year, when we may be obliged
to pay again as much.

! i ffipHINGS aren't always what
they seem, skim milk mas
i querudes as cream"—some
times! But not always. For in
j stance, if tho skin is in a bad con
dition no amount of effort will dis
guise the fact although proper
treatment may remedy it. Now, the
wise woman realizes the value of a
good cream as an aid to keeping
her complexion as it should he. And
she knows that at the drug store of
George C. Potts, Third and Herr
streets, she can procure just the kind
her skin requires. She may need
one containing oil or she may de
sire a greaseless cream, in which
case she will he glad to know that
she can buy one of unusually high
quality which Dr. Potts himself has
i made and guarantees.
DON'T you suppose our poor
homes ever become jealous
of us? Of course, they do.
Here we are, continually buying
pretty, new things with which to
array ourselves while they patiently
wait for the time when some little
change, no matter how minor, may
be made in their appearances. Now,
for the room that is fairly crying
out for some little additional touch
to break the monotony of too much
sameness, the remedy is to be found
at the Art & Gift Shop, 105 North
j Second street. Pottery vases, in
shades of dull blue, green and
; brown the latter sometimes merg
ing into soft tans and vivid yellows,
solve the problem. They also furn
i ish the satisfactory solution to the
I problem of the gift you Nvant to
| give.
TSN'T it perfectly astounding what
I an artist, plus a little bit of
j ribbon and a little bit of
j crepe, can do? Give most of us
j the same materials and a lifetime
I in which to work, and we'd never
| produce anything to equal the dainty
j frock now being shown at the rioos
Shop In the Penn-Harris. Of flow
i ered navy blue Georgette, it boasts
! a wide girdle of navy blue, with just
| a touch of rose. Kibbon trimming
i in rose falls from the girdle to the
' hem, adding a charming touch.
! Last, but not least, come the side
j drapings and the button-trimmed
reveres, adding just the features
J necessary to make the average
I gown give up in absolute despair.
