THE A. W. FOWLES COMPANY: Of course you are well aware of how extremely stylish Russian pony fur is this season, and for that very reason the price of pony skins has advanced from 40 to 50 percent. Our coats were bought before the advance and while the present stock lasts we price them regardless of any advance.

24-inch Russian Pony Fur Coats, very nice, fine quality. Our regular price, $25.00. Sale price, $19.50.

30-inch Russian Pony Fur Coats, handsomely marked. Instead of $32.50, this sale price, $25.00.

36-inch Russian Pony Fur Coats, our regular $45.00 grade, this sale, $37.50.

A new recording machine was installed in Lewiston Police Department headquarters yesterday afternoon. The new device is the second such unit to be installed which will record all police department conversations. The latest machine to be added records all telephone calls.

Earlier this month the police obtained a unit which now puts all radio conversations on wide rolls of plastic tape. When filled, the tape can be filed and later referred to if questions about conversations arise. The machines are located in the dispatcher’s office.
