According to a complaint filed with
the police department today some per
son or persons, unknown at this time
to the officers, entered the storeroom
of the Wilmington hotel and appro
priated to their own use 10 caddies

been notified to look out for anyone
showing unusual activity in masticat

United States and the allies and who
maintain that Ba'stihe day, July 14, is

that such a celebration would offend

Brief Session of Court.
When recorder's court convened to
day for the purpose of hearing the
trials and tribulations of those hu
mans who had been so unfortunate as
to get mixed up with the heavy hand
of the law, there was marched up be
fore the recorder a diminutive urchin
who admitted to the age of six. The
charge marked on the book against
him was related that he had indulged
in the favorite juvenile pastime of
"chunking rocks." The court officials
took one look at the defendant; and
just as hastily as it could be said and
written a nol pros was ordered and en
tered upon the docket, the youngster
being told to go his way and cease
throwing Tocks. Then court adjourned.

Unusual Money-Saving Opportunities at The
Farley's G r e d i t S tore'
You don't pay any more for merchandise at Farley's than you do at the cash stores. You don't get anjr better
styles or bigger selections at the cash stores. Come and see for yourself. Goods and prices tell their own story.
Comparison proves everything. But there's a wonderful difference between trading here and trading at a cash store.
You don't miss the easy little weekly or semi-weekly payments, but it does hurt sometimes to lay, down the cash.
Never Equaled Opportunity for Men and Women
Men's New SumiAer Suits
. We know most men do not expect such unparalleled value-offers from a
credit house, where they pay only a little each week or pach payday. But
we are giving you these values in the way you can see the values are bona fide.
The prices stipulated bythemanufacturers are still on these garments the
same prices you find on the same makes in the cash stores where you pay
spot cash. That's one startling .fact! But there's still another fact more
stariTng: We give you full.lines and sizes to select from, and besides beat
the cash houses on new ideas and selection. Where the ordinary cash house
shows you one or two makes, we give you nearly dozen, including famous

The wonderful assortment of sizes ranges up to 52. Large ladies never
saw such a-thrilling sight of beauty in the raging color of the season. New
York and Newport have gone wild over navy blue. We saw the sighs dawn

profusion. Not only in startling profusion, but at a figure that will make
you act quick. Comparison is all you need to understand what your oppor

We's simply got to produce the- style and the quality. The men who get
these clothes on little payments would turn the garments back on us if we
didnt. And we are absolutely distancing all others when it comes to this
