The Keystone State Will Have One of
the Most Graceful State Buildings
at the San Francisco Exposition—
Will Open Next February
Secretary Walter Gaither, of the
Pennsylvania Commission to the Sun
fr'rancisco Panama-Pacific Exposition,
has received word that work on the
handsome Pennsylvania building, to be
used by Pennsylvanians during the ex
position, is rapidly being pushed, and
the building is now under roof. The
Pennsylvania building will not cost as
much as some of the other State build
ings, but it is of a very graceful type
of architecture, and it is built for com
fort and convenience of all Pennsvl
vanians who visit the big show. Tile
wings are to be fitted up for exhibition
balls wherein Pennsylvania history will
be shown, and the great centre hall will
have a place for the old Liberty Bell.
The introduction of Bangor slate for
roofing on the Pacific slope, the State
building being covered with it, has
made an impression on the people from
other countries, and it is stated that
the Argentine government, on seeiflg
the roof of the Pennsylvania building,
at once changed its plans and decided
to use slate as safer and handsomer.
The Exposition will be opened next
February, but before that time the
Pennsylvania building will be dedicated
bv the State Commission accompanied
bv State officials.

Last night tiit> constitutional com

titles that there shaill be elected a pres

a treasurer, an advisory committee of

the president has the power to appoint
J any other necessary committees and, in
view of the fact that the school has
already been invited to play the Phil

j The Ksceipts Commenced to Grow With
, the Opening of Hostilities in Eu
ropean War
Washington, Oct. 30.—The war in
Europe is proving a big boon to postal
savings in this country. From the very
day hostilities opened across the seas
postal-savings receipts began to increase
by leaps and bounds ami withdrawals
fell otr, a result quite contrary to the
predictions of many well-informed per
sous who, in their imagination, saw
lines of feverish depositors at postoffice
pay window-anxkras to again return
their savings to the boot-leg and body
belt depositories whence they came be
fore intrusted to Uncle Sam. But the
forecasters failed to reckon on the ab
solute confidence of the American citi
zen, regardless of the (lag that first met
his eyes, ill the ability and purpose of
the Government to carry out its obli
gations, not only among the nations of
th tf earth, but with the humblest citizen
of our land.
Two important results have follow
ed; thousands of people, largely of for
eign birth, accustomed to send their
savings abroad, are now patrons of our
postal-savings system: and enormous
sums of actual cash have be; i n released
for commercial uses among our own
people at a time when the need for
every available dollar is pressing.
The unexpected increase in postal
savings business has not only added
greatly to the general administrative
duties of the system, but has brought
up many new and interesting problems
which have called for the careful per
sonal consideration of Postmaster Gen
eral Burleson and Governor Dockery,
Third Assistant Postmaster' General.
But their task has been lightened some
what by the promptness of depository
bauks in furnishing additional security
to meet the abnormal deposits. A nuni-1
ber of the very latest banks in the
country, which have heretofore declined j
to qualify as depositories for post-sav-:
ings funds, are now among the eager!
applicants for them.

You Will Never Enjoy
Bigger SHOE
Than In This Sale
The liberal reductions that will prevail in this sale will make a forcible appeal in these days
when dollars are required to do double their ordinary duty.
Of course, it means a heavy less to us—one that we would rather not suffer. But a backward
season has left tco many shoes on oui- shelves, and we would rather take the loss we face now than
a greater one which would come later. The advantage is all yours—to grasp it lies solely with
you. Come to-morrow.
