The way it was long, nnd road it was dark. And the wayfarer fell in the pond in the park. And it tilled him right up to the Plimsoll mark. And not only filled but chilled him! He contrived to get borne all a shiver and shake. He'd a terrible cold and had swallowed a hike. But Woods' Teppermint Cure they induced him to take.

TAILORING. A REALLY SMART SUIT. £2 5/. £2 10/, £2 lo.', and £3 3/. MADE TO MEASURE. The Suits now procurable from GEORGE DAVIES, 48. Queen-street, opposite Smeeton's, at the above prices, are really superb in style, fit. and finish. They equal in appearant-e the Suits Auckland men have been lv the habit of paying the tailors who give credit five or six guineas for, and they possess one point which no otlier tirm can supply—the famous Keep-Shape From. The "Keep-Shape" Front is a registered front Lhat ensures tlie coat Irom turning back aud setting out of shape. It is the latest idea from the best Loudon and Xew I'ork tailoring establishments, and Mr. Davies is very fortunate indeed in possessing Lhe exclusive rlg-llt, to use this front in coats made In New Zealand. Gentlemen who have already had suits made at the Ohristchurch establishment since tile "Keep-Shape" frout was introduced have been highly pleased with the splendid coats produced. Then, special care is. given to every detail in tie making of every garment, and Mr. Davies is so satisfied thai: suit will give complete satisfaction when you order It from him that he has authorised, us to state that ne will give a written guarantee to refund your money should you not he entirely satisfied with the garments when you receive them. We attriuute the ditterence of £2 In the price of Mr. Davies' suits as compared with the ordinary made-to-measure suit largely to the modem methods adopted in the making of the garments, and, of course, also to the fact that he seiis entirely for cash, giving uo credit whatever, thus making no bad debts; and, after all, it does seem absurd that one man should have to pay a higher price for his suit just because some other fellow fails to pay for his; but that Is jus: what happens, for somebody hai! to pay for those who do not : pay, and it U naturally not the taiior who gives credit; It is the man who does pay you. ilr. Divles has just opened iv the Auckland branch a very large shipment of the newest autumn and winter suitings, 1 direct from the manufacturers. They include ail the latest shades and co.ourlngs in the fashionable brown and green i wcrrsteds so much worn now, and many "oeautifnl light materials, and the standard qualities in blues and blacks, which are ; guaranteed to retain their colour, being of the best possible dye. Your early inspection of these splendid suitings is Invited and j advised. The address Is: GEORGE DAVIES, 148, Queen-street, Auckland, and at Christchurch, Wellington, and Dunedin. 1U35
