When we can buy for less
we sell for less; for instance,
the first of the season we
sold All-wool Red Flan
nel for 37c. Couldn't sell
it for less, but a late pur

ables us to offer it at 31c
per yard. Grand value at
The above is also the case
with 36-inch White Shaker
rlannel. Prior to this pur
chase we sold it at 37 c,
now 31c per yard. Ten

on J.mifr Acqiiutuliiueo.
Win. F. Harton, a clerk In tho Surgcou
flencral's ofllco, was beforo tho Pollco
Court this morning on a charge of making a
felonious assault on Sirs. A1111I0 11, Illicitly,
wifo of Sllchacl 11. Buddy, a watchman I11
tho Paymaster-General's ofllco. Sir. Illicitly
Uvea nt 722 Teiith street southwest, and tho
assault Is alleged to havo been committed
last Wednesday. Tlio complainant is n
rather good-looking woman aliout 110 years
of ago. Tho prisoner Is a inlddle-agod man.
Sirs. Duchloy's statement was to tho ef
fect that sho has known tho defendant
about 11I110 yearn, and ho has beou a con
stant visitor to her houso. On tho day in
question ho camo into tho kitchen, whero
blio was making pies, nnd attempted fa
miliarities with her, wlilch sho stoutly ro
slstcd, her husband and children being out
nt tho time. Sho admitted that hu
had Insulted her in tho samo
way several times before, but
never thought ho luteudod any disrespect,
Duilng thustrugglo her liusbaud camo lu,
but sho told him nothing aliout tho matter
for fear there might bo bloodshed ami prob
ably inuuler. lioitou told heron one occa
sion that sho was tho only woman hoover
loved. Ono ot her children told her liusbaud
about It, and sho told Sir. Jlortou to stay
away from her house.
Sir. liuchlcy then took tho stand and
testified to the effect that It ho h.ul sus
pected anything wrong at the tlmo ho
would certainly have killed tho defendant.
This tho witness said in a loud voice.
When llorton went outhU wife told I1I111
nil about It, nnd ho ran utter llorton mid
"God Almighty only knows what would
havo been tho result It l had caught him."
Tho accused on taking tho xtuiid stated
that ho was in the house, only iihuiil three
minutes. He denied thu chargu flatly.
"1 11111 light hcie to defend my honor,"
exclaimed Sirs. Ilucbly when tho defendant
denlid her ktory. Tho Court directed that
the woman bo taken out of tho court-room,
but sho refused logo.
Sir. Calilll called attention to tlio fact
that tlio wife told her husband that no ns
KMilt had been committed, mid claimed Unit

publishing enterprise, thus undergoing an
expel ienco that enhanced his general use
fulness nt that time, mid also dovclopod in
tlmo n catholicity of spirit not inconsistent
with loyal attachment to thu tenets of ills

its ultimate success. Tho church was for
mally organized January 18, 18.Y1, by acorn
inlttco appointed by the Presbytery, with a
membership of twenty-four persons, and
David SI. Wilson was elected ruling elder,
