PIYE DAYS' CLEARANCE SALE,
Dec. 26, and continuing
Monday, Tuesday, Wednes
day and Thursday of next
week, we shall inaugurate a
grand Clearance Sale, or a
Five Days' Remnant Sale,
-which we propose to make
unprecedented in the history
of our business.
Our enormous Christmas
trade surpassed our most
sanguine expectations, and
in such a rush it is inevita
ble that many goods should
get disarranged, soiled,
crumpled or otherwise dis
ordered, and on all such
goods we propose to make
unparalleled redu c t i o n s,
marking them at prices des
tined to make a clean sweep
of the stock.
This sale will include ev
erything that can be consist
ently called a Remnant,
Odd lots of Fancy Goods,
Flush Cases, Bronzes, etc.
Short lengths in Wool
Short lengths of Silk Fab
rics. Short lengths of Wash
Odd sizes in Hosiery.
Odd sizes in Gloves.
Odd sizes in Underwear.
Odd sizes in Wraps) Jer
Odd sizes in Corsets.
Odd lines in Christmas
Broken lines of Curtains,
In fact, any goods whatso
ever that may have become
disordered, tossed, disar
ranged, soiled or that can be
called a "Remnant."
While the press of busi
ness will not allow us to
specify any particular items
in this issue, we shall each
day henceforth enumerate
just such goods as may come
under our notice at that
time, and, as a great many
things will necessarily get
overlooked, we beg our cus
tomers not to wait until the
goods are advertised, but
come at once and come of
ten, as each succeeding day
will note additional attrac
tions lor this extraordinary
Five Days' "Remnant" or
Clearing-up Sale of season
able stuffs, as each and ev
ery department will contrib

Dec. 26, we propose to inau
gurate a Grand Clearing-up
Sale of odd lots, soiled, bro
ken lines, odd initials and
tossed and wrinkled hand
kerchiefs, and, with a view
of closing them out in the
smallest possible time, we

as cannot fail to cause their
rapid disposal and commend
them to the trade as "un

From General Pope's description of tho
battle, In tho January Century tho follow
ing Is quoted: "In this battlo (of August
Sin, tho Fifth Corps, under General F. J.
Poller, took no part whatever, but remained
all day lu column, without even deploying
Into lino of battlo or making nny effort In
force to And out what was In their front.
That General Porter know of tho progress
of tho battlo on his right, and that ho bo
llcvcd tho Union army was being defeated,
Is shown by his own dispatches to Mc
Dowell, several times repeated during tho
"Not tho artillery only, but tho volleys' of
musketry lu this batlfo were also plainly
heard on Ihclr right nnd front by tho ail
vance of Porter's troops much of tho day.
In consequence of his linllef that tho army
on Ids right was beliis defeated, as stated lu
moro than ono of theso dispatches, ho In
formed General McDowell that he Intended
to retlro to Manassas, and advised McDow
ell to send back his trains lu thosamo direc
tion. "For this action, or non-action, ho ha
been on tho ono hand likened to Benedict
Arnold, and on tho other favorably com
pared with Georgo Washington. I nro
siinio ho would not accent thu llrst position,
and ptobably ho would hardly lay claim to
the second. Certainly I havo not tho incli
nation, even had I thu power, to assign him
to either or to nny position between tho two;
nnd If ho wero alono concerned In tho ques

Tho company claim that tho men are all

TI1K INQUEST OVr.lt TIIC 11011V.
Coroner Patterson held an Inquest over tho
body ut tho First Precinct Station this
morning at 11 o'clock. Tho Jury was com
posed as follows: Messrs. W. 1. Time, W.
N. Croggati, J. A. McDcrmott, C. I.. Durch,
John L. Cox and Mai tin Horn.
Mrs. Emma Mar tlncck, a saloon keeper
oil Seventh street near M southwest, was
tho first witness called. Sho tcstllled that
on Inst Wednesday afternoon, nbout 1
o'clock, tho deceased camo hi her saloon
In n partly Intoxicated condition and called
for-u drink of whisky. Hu appeared to he
recovering from an attack ot mania potu.
Ho then produced a wcll-Illlcd purse from
which ho paid for tho drink. Ho stated that
ho was n tea captain nud had plenty of
money, nt tho samu tlmo tailing n large roll
of Ilvo dollar bills fiom his lusldo pocket.
Un taking his departure ho met her two-ycur-old
boy and guvo tho child a ten cent
piece, sajlng, "Hero's a Christmas gift for
you." Ho said ho wasu married man and
Lad children ot Ids own aud that ho was
much nltached to children. Ho further
said that he had resided in this city for n
long tlmo nnd wns celebrating I1I3 Christmas
Daniel S, I.analian, tho employe of tho
Baltimore A, Potomac liallroad Company
who found tho body of tho deceased, was
next called and tcstllled that whllo on his
way to work, a llltlo beforo U o'clock, ho
caw tho body of thu dead mull 1 lug lu the
alley in the rear of tho round-house, at the
corner of Sixth street and Virginia incline
southwest. Ho at first thought that tho
man was drunk-, nud, going to his side, ho
called and shook the body, when ho discov
ered that tho man was dead, lie went Into
Ilio romid-liouso and notified a follow
woikman, and together they proceeded to
tho body und made an examination and
found that tho man's throat hud been cut.
Tho knlfo with which tho fatal deed was
committed was lying n short distance off.
llo then notillcd the pollco.
Dr. T. J. Hnrtlgan tostliled that he ex
amined the wounds and found th.it they
wciofonrln number and confined to tho
left eldo of tho race and neck. Tho principal
wound was under tho Jaw and the knlfo had
severed tho Jugular vein and several Binall
vessels, aud that death was tho result ot
hemorrhage caused from tho wounds.
"What Is tho chatneter of tho wounds!"
nkked tho coroner. "Do thoy appear tohavo
been inllleted by himself or by somo other
"Considering nil tho clrcitmtance3 of tlio
case and tho nature and location ot the
wounds, I bellcvo they were selt-Inlllctcd,"
replied tho doctor. "A question may arise
whether or not a man could Inflict such n
number of wounds on himself, but labor
ing as he was under nn aberration of tho
muid, balanced by a strong determination,
ho could do It."
The doctor thinks tlio enso Is suicide.
Louis Strep, a Imr-tcndcr at tho saloon of
Mrs. ltoth, on Seventh near 1) street south
west, wns called nnd testified that ho had
viewed the body of tho dead man nud recog
nized it as that of a man who came Into his

called for something to eat. llo was served
with oysters, nftcr'eatlng which ho called
for 11 diluk and dozed lu a chair. When

New Yoik ou tlio teu o'clock train. When
that hour nrrlved ho changed his mind and
spent tho night at tho saloon, lu tho
morning ho ato his breakfast tbero aud said
his name was Forrest nnd that ho was n
cuplnln ot 11 Now Yoik lino steamer. Ho
handed a llc-ilollar tioto in payment of his
bill, and, bidding all good-by, ho departed.
Ho wns sober, lie appeared to bo a man of
quiet habits and very Intelligent, aud In
sisted on tho witness coming on to Now
York und taking a trip on tho river with
Alexander P. I-eo corroborated tho testi
mony of Mr. Strep ns to serving tho man In
his place on Wednesday. Ills conversation
was that of a seafaring man, uud his ueccnt
that of nn KnalMiman.
James W. Darker, who keeps a hardware

Tho man nt flr.t appeared startled, but af
terward stated that he was not the captain
of an oyster schooner, but wns captain of 11
steamer plj lug between New York nnd Liver
pool. Skinner left the saloon ut H o'clock.
Tho deceased was there ut that tlmo. llo ap
