UND ER-GARMENT VALUES II We want to call your attention this week to a few styles aim values in ladies and childrens undergarments. We think we have a good stock and the prices we have placed on them make them big values. A well-dressed woman is dressed well thro-out. She thinks just as much of the neat undergarlnents as she does of the stylish outside appearance. We can satisfy the desires along this line in ready-to-wear goods, or if preferred in materials for makmg. [SEI_ECTINI00 THE BRONZE TURKEY, A Thanksgiving Story. By PORTE JEFFERSON [Copyright, 1909, by American Press+Asso- ciat|6a:] ..... -' - -" - Amanda Butler cautiously opened t he door of the turkey shed andflashed the rays Of her lantern until they full grinned openly and went back to neglected garden. At night a remarkable thing hal> pened. The vk.torinus wearer of red sought a roost in the walnut tree, while the mourning turkey lgnominously found refuge in the shed. and, strange to relate, he chose the very spot va- cated by his rival. All that summer and early fall Aman- da and Jeremiah avoided the subject of turkeys. After awhile others no- ticed that the topic was a disagreeable one, and so it was tacitly avoided by every one. The first of November two bronze gobblers nervously paced two narrow pens. The red flannel turkey was gen- broadcast on the lumsy'fot'm of a crossly fed by Amanda, while the black hirge turkey in the corner.

That's why 1 s'lected him for Thanksgiving dinner," remarked Mr. Butler del!berately. "Him a-roosting out of doors shows he has wild tastes, and what tastes better than wild turkey, I Wanter know?" Amanda received this unconscious witticism on her husband's part in stony silence. "Of course I mean the biggest of them two bronze fellers," added Jere- miah after awhile. "1 marked the biggest," said Amanda acidly. .leremiah whistled one stanza of "The Star Spangled Bannez:," knocked his pipe against the step and went into On the evening of the second day be- fore Thanksgiving. Jeremiah Butler and Amanda sat in the warm circle of light cast by the reading lamp. Jere- miah was reading the county paper, and his wife was sewing. Suddenly Jeremiah looked up. "Pete Jones is coming around to kill the tur- key tome.rrow morning." he said. with asshmed carelessness. "He'll get It all dressed and ready for you." "I've been thinking." said Amanda slowly. "that you might as well kill that there black tape turkey of yours. Hc looks pretty well conditioned, and he's the biggest bird qfter all. I don't feel like as if I could have any con- tention this Thanksving. We've been so prospered this year." Jm'emiah (.ou,_,hod dubiously. "Aman- da.'" he be'-'at+ rather sheepishly. "'1 did kind ,,f a fo.l thing last summer. When y(:u lied a rag on y<)nr turkey i went out tile next morning and changed them razs.
