The way to judge the value we get into our Clothes, is to get into one of our suits. You'll decide favorably on the fit, style and patterns in our Hart Schaf fner & Marx suits at $18 to $25 And your opinion will be worth something after you've put our Clothes to the test of a season's wear.

It was tho piirposo of this convention to namo delegates to the State Convention at Loulsvllje. The crowd assembled nt the appointed hour, 2 o'clock standard time, but a half hour's juggling followed, which tried their patience. Chan, Alexander brofo tho monotony by an attempt to call tho houso to order, but quickly had fie ruins taken out of hla hands by J. T.

James Is a supporter of Champ Clark but the real "nigger In tho woodpile" is state organization for or against tho state administration. Tho real Issue was not aired. It wasn't a question of endorsing Olllo or instructing for Clark, but a fight for State Executive Committee Chairmanship. The present state administration was given a slap as a result of the resolutions adopted, and Stevenson was endorsed over for chairman. Tho latter represents the local option element and was against tho prison and other grafts In our recent fight, when carried the state back into tho Democratic ranks by a majority of over 30,000. This was a Joker that probably fow of the men in the convention understood. Such a change would mean the organization of a new state machine, which opposes the plat form of our present administration. iaw, won Van-Bant ry The materials and designs are se lected to meet the demands of hard wear the average boy gives his clothes.

Fulton county should hold conventions that aro worthy the name. Why should our Democrats assemble and become tho football of all kinds of political riff-raf- f men who aro trying to get back at the prison board trough, men from some other state, men who steal conventions with Impunity or throw out a whole primary voto with brazen grace, men who haven't paid their poll tax In three yeara, men who have fixed tho "dope In gumshoe conclaves in Louisville, and prohibition men who drink whis key and ride automobiles furnished by tho "also ran?" Did it ever occur to you that we Democrats, who do Uio rolling up of majorities, are not knowing sometimes what we stand for, and occasionally selling our birthright for a mess of pottage?

THE BARGAIN STORE On tho first Wednesdny In Juno tho school election comes off. Three members of tho school board aro to bo elected who succeed Julian Choato, J. W. Cowglll (resigned), and E. W. Adams. Ordinarily this election goes and comes without any special Interest being manifested by patrons of tho public schools. In tho first place tho notices of theso elections aro insufficient; and second, many men do not care to voto on tho "hotel register" plan, If Interested. If a secret ballot ovor possessed any merit or commendation, it is In school elections. For obvious reasons a business man hesitates to put himself on record as dccldlns between two candidates who may be his friends. Ho may have n choice men, but Is not prono to make it public; hence, does not voto. Then tho matter Is loft for decision uy "cliques," who hnvo no hesitancy In openly opposlug each other. Unfor tunately, theso elections generally have a vortex pivoted on a "bank fight, a denominational fight, a family affair or business opposition," all of which should not enter Into the conduct of tho most vital Institution or any town. Just so long as there Is "politics" in tho school board Just so long that board is not fulfilling Its mission. The boat remedy for any of tho evils that besot school board election U duo notlco of such elections and a secret ballot. For 2.C0 ballots bearing names of such candidates, otc., could bo furnished, and tho election held In accordance with tho manner of other elocUons.

So shall we come forth from our closets each day with tho dew of heaven upon our hearts, and with a fresh messago upon our lips. "Ho that It is a dangerous thing to know God's will and not do It. And one of the most perilous things a Christian can do, Is to try to hold his own slra ply, and not no forward into tho deep things of God when thus led by tho spirit. I have read of a Christian man who becamo so engrossed in his bust nesa that ho largely lost his fellow ship with God. After a whtlo his bus! ness began to fall; he found that in a few weeks tho vein of coal from which he had been drawing his supplies would be exhausted, ant! all his investment would bo useless. He was also impressed that his business troubles "were due to his departure from God, and this led him to much prayer. Ono night in a dream a votco seemed to say to him, "Go deeper." It seemed to him to be tho voice of God, and it led to an entire transformation of his life. As ho entered upon a closer walk with God his heart was filled with new Joy and power. Dut still the toico xopt speaking to mm so per sistently that bo began to think U had something to do with his business. And so ono day ho proposed to his foreman that they should abandon the ole vein of coal, and sink a new shaft with a view of finding a deeper store. Tho foremnn ridiculed the idea for all the indications re against It. Dut he insisted and at length a shaft was sunk, and after they bad gone down reasonable distance they struck, not a vein of coal, but lo, an immeuso Teln of iron, and suddenly the bank rupt miner found himself a million aire. Is not this God's message to us "Go deeper?" If we have exhausted all the satisfaction and power there Is In our present knowledge of truth. U us enter into tho deep things of God, depths of wisdom.
