Clothing Trade Returns to Normal
Now that practically all the former

again, those tailors who cater to stu-

again. Their' principal( businer all

mU J Le n igh cost or Labor and the
scarcity of wool," stated Mr. A. F.
Marquardt, speaking from the cus-;
tom-made clothing point of view. "In
fact, indications point to a higher price
for yard goods, due to the present'
shortage of wool," he added. Mr. Mar-
quardt has received circulars from
several of the larger woolen houses of
the country which state that wool-
ens will be from $1 to $2.50 more on
the yard this spring.
Mr. S. Burchfield, also speaking of
the custom-made trade, said, "Al-
though the prices this spring will be
as high or higher than theywere in
the fall, a drop can be looked for in
the coming fall season."
Mr. C. J. Hutzel, of Hutzel &Go.,
stated that prices will remain the
same, but that the material and the
work in the spring stocko f ready-
made clothes are better than they
have been for past seasons.
Another dealer in suits and coats,
Mr. E. F. Mills, said, "Owing to the
fact that the spring stock will be made
out of last year's woolens, the prices;
cannot come down within a period of
eight months or a year."
On the merchandise side of the ques-a
tion the buyer for the Win. goo dyear
Co. states that prices will be the same
or slightly higher this spring. This
he says is due to the fact that the ex-
portation of manufactured goods is
greatly increased. Here, also, the
high cost of labor is an important fac-
tor and a lowering of prices cannot
come in this branch until rthe next'

He of the silver badge, puzzled as

This was the last straw. With a blood

his luggage and bolted up a nearby al-

He did not have far to go, for the run-

of the offIoial feet,
"Honest, I didn't want to sell it,"
the frightened fugitive began as soon

The thoroughly frightened ex-trav-

was soon safely lodged in a substan-
tial brick building on West Ann street.
A little questioning, and a little in-
vestigation revealed that he had really
tried to tell the truth when first
caught. "It" turned out to be eight
quarts of a popular brand, in Chicago,
of that which is taboo in Michigan.
After paying a fine in three figures,
and promising to leave boooze toting

"The future has chosen France and
America, two great republics, the one
old and just through a great battle,
the others young, just through aiding
the other young, just through aiding
side by side .to bring light to the
world" said Professor H. P. Thieme
in his lecture entitled "France and
During the War," the first of a series
of French lectures to be given here.
In his talk Professor Thieme empha-
sized therrelations between France
arnd America due to this war, rather
than the deeds of either nation in the
war. He looked at the war in three
different phrases. Professor Thieme
declared that the first was that of the
French soldiers. The world would
never fully appreciate what the first
two years of the war meant to the
Frenchmen. It was not a question of
Alsace-Lorraine, but of right opposed
The second phase was the French
women's part. They were the co-
workers of the men, inspired them,
took their places in the workfields, and
hid their sadness and tears behind
cheerful and gay smiles.
The next phase dealt with America's
participation in France. For the
weary French our Americans were
doers of marvels ,the fountain of
youth, the elixir of life. They saw
our great optimism and had confidence
in us, having met our soldiers in
China and Cuba. We conquered them
from the first by our youthfulness and
gayety and they gave us the welcome
oz brothers, Professor Thieme believes.
"They, in the consciousness of their
culture, did not try to force their
Ideas upon our boys." He continued,
