As far as the city of iClare is concerned, the story which was started early in the year that, on account of the war in Europe, we should be unable to secure the usual supply of Christmas presents this year, seeina to have been a fake alarm. To the inexperienced eye, there doesn't seem to be a single thing lacking in the long list of articles that is required to care for the wants of young and old at. this joyous gift season. Certainly the dolls and toys, dear to the hearts of all youngsters, are as plentiful as ever. And if any article by chance is missing this year from its accustomed place in tbe shop windows, there are so many other things—and many of them new —to take its place, that the loss will hardly be felt. So Old Nicholas can be depended upon to make his rounds just as usual, and may even the poorest among ua be made happy by finding a well filled stocking on Christmas morning. One glance at the store windows as you pass is enough to satisfy anyone that our merchants have made every effort this year not only to secure stocks that are entirely complete, but to offer articles that are serviceable and dependable. We firmly believe that all are imbued with the new spirit of "service" in their selling to help in making the gift of real personal value to the one for -whom it is intended. We do not hesitate to recommend whatever is offered by our dealers as being genuine and as good as can be secured anywhere. What is said by them in this annual Christmas number of tbe Sentinel may therefore be given close attention, with the assurance tbat many suggestions of real value will be found by all who have holiday purchasing to do. For the first time in years, the city of Clare starts taking in taxes this month without a load of debt staring i it in the face, tbe only floating in-' debtedness now on the books being Today For Holiday Vacation Of a note of $250.00, renewed last July Two Weeks.
