DETROIT CLAIMS ONE OF
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 17 - The dis-

men ever elected to the national house

Crimean Millionaires Go Barefoot
Berne, Nov. 17 - Barefooted mil-
lionaires are reported prevalent in
the Crimea, according to a letter of al
Swiss woman quoting prices In de-
preciated Russian rubles.
The income of peasants is great be-
cause the land there is productive
and a pound of wheat sells, roughly
at 1,000 rubles. On the expense side
of the ledger, shoes cost 50,000 rubles,
a suit of clothes 200,000 rubles. Farm
laborers get 10,000 rubles a day.
London, Nov. 17--The Morocco cor-
respondent of The Times claims to be
"almost with certainty" the only liv-
ing European who has hitherto visit-
ed Sheshawan, the mysterious "sec-
ret" Moroccan inland city, which is
now officially stated to be occupied by
a Spanish expeditionary force.
Sheshawan, or more correctly, Shef-
shaon, he writes, is a small town of
a few thousand inhabitants situated
in the tribeland of the Beni }Zeejl,
about 40 miles to the south of Tetuan.
The Times man says he visited it in
Moorish disguise in 1888, and only
escaped with difficulty.
He adds that the town is small,
built along a sort of terrace on the
high mountain side, and is renowned
for its springs and streams. With the
exception of its picturesque situation
among mountains, its aloofness, and
its surrounding gardens, Sheshawan
presents no very particular features.
Its inhabitants are poor. Their in-
dustries are the making of furniture
in painted wood--brackets and tables
-and the weaving of woolen stuffs.
They are renowned for their mean-
ness, and a native proverb states:
"If you see a Moslem merchant from
Fez weeping, it is only a Moor of
Sheshawan who could have got the
better of him."

To MY CUSTOMERS:
This letter will advise you that I have resigned my position with A.
STARR BEST INC. of CHICAGO as manager of their college stores,
and that I have started a business under my own name at the above address.
My sudden change of affiliation was brought about by a trip to New
York where I was astounded by the values that I could give you in case I
went into business on my own resources. At no small amount of risk "I took
the step, and am now in a position where you, the customers, will derive great
benefit from it.
I have brought back from New York suits that were marked
heretofore very closely to sell for $100 and am going to sell these at SIXTY
DOLLARS and suits that previously sold for $75 will cost you no more
These suits are of the finest imported and domestic
worsteds and tweeds and equivalent to the best I have ever shown.
As regards shoes, I have the much coveted WHITEHOUSE & HAR-
DY line which is by far the best regarded line in the Eastern colleges.
shoes are marked at prices which will compare favorably with nay suits and
My formal opening will be on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER EIGH-
TEEN and I look forward to having you call.
Yours most truly,
The discouraging fact that you
are unable to dance graceful-
ly will probably restrain you
from attending your class
I will guarantee to teach you
all the modern dances grace-
fully and artistically in eight
