Sorvlco from the Natloiml Capital.
Tho Pennsylvania Itullroad Company has
always recognized tho expediency of fast
trains botween Washington and Philadelphia,
aud the tcrvlco as It now exists has been con
spicuously fine, tho time fast, and the trains
equipped 'In a most liberal manner, both with
tho standard coaches of tho company's
own construction and Pullman parlor
and sleeping cars of tho latest design. No
other lluo in tho world has afforded such ac
commodations for a similar service. Tho
volume of traffic, however, between tho Na
tional Capital and tho cities of tho Atlantic
coast continues to Increase, nud tho spirit of
American ltfo demands that a minimum of
tlmo must be consumed In reaching a given
point. In Tlow of these considerations the
company, acting upon tho well-established
prlnclplo that its patrons shall enjoy tho best
itvallablo scrvlco and accommodations, has
niranged to so far lmpioye Its facilities,
uy mo u unman oi last trains, as
to ccllpso all previous standards
of excellence, and distinguish tbo
Wosh.lngtou and Philadelphia lino with nn un
oxamplcd equipment. In order to accomplish
this two new fast trains In each, direction will

days, Baltimore, Union Station, 8.53, nud ar

Washington dally at 8.10 p. m., Balti

11.20 p. m. Two fast south-bound trains
will also leavo Philadelphia for Washington
at 8.31 a. m. dallv. aud !) 53 n. in. week (lavs.
arriving nt Washington 11.40 a, m. and 7.08
p. m., reducing In each caeo tho tlmo between
Washington and Philadelphia to three hours
and ten minutes. These trains will bo
equipped with Pennsylvania Railroad parlor
cars and day coaches. Tho new trains will
connncuco running Decembor 8.
This radical reduction In time Is a measure
which tbo public will welcome with eager
ness. Its Inauguration Is made possible at this
time by tho perfection to which railway con
struction and management has attained. With
an oxcellent road-bed, protected by the block
system and Interlocking snitches throughout,
with an equipment of locomotives and cars
unsurpassed on any line, absolute safety goes
hand In hand with nigh speed.

DOLLARS AND QUESTIONS
Why, this is something unusual in
the clothing business? Entirely so. No
dpdge about it. No cheap gift thun
der about it. No old stock splutter
about it. Our purpose isn't to be gained
in that way. This is a genuine out and
out honest sale, caused by an unforseen
accident. Hardship to us or not, the
stock must be sold. AH goods will be
sold at exactly one-half the marked
prices. We intend to sell now and
quick, and lose whatever profit it costs.
Bring back what doesn't please for ex
change or a return of money.
