DIDIT EVKR ST1KK YOU^That year by year the habits of People^u do the Fashions'^ Time was^when about the only chance a man had^to get a Suit of Clothing without paying^(our prioee would be to haggle for an^hour, and finally a spirit of compromise^or fatigue induce the contending parties^to compromise.
Differenthere, and it is our proud^honor to state we were the Pioneers in^this system of On Pkk k. We have^gone ahead of any of our competitors,^and mark all our gcxnls in Plain Fio-^orbs. True there are some of the ^I low^Much Will You (live^ class of clothiers^^those relieB of barbaric clothing days^^but their days are numbered; and ere^many m^xms have ooine and gone they^will be laid away and have joined the^eilent majority.
Buttalking of changes. Dontcher-^know it is time to change your Overcoat^^Has not this storm suggested to you the^propriety of looking at those Overcoats^the merits of which we have l^een pro^^claiming all the season ^ Take a look at^some of our Fur Trimmed Overcoats.^They will make your mouth water.^That one at $^*^...^^ is a Bird ! We have^^old stacks of them already this season,^and hare stacks left.
Thenwe have a Fur Collar Coat at^fl.r^ that is a (tern. But all our Spe^^cialties are gems, and one of the first^water is a ex^at, Otter Cuffs and Collar,^Kngllsh Beavercloth, which we are sell^ing cheaper than we did last year, not^withstanding the fact that fur and^^loth have both advanced in price.
Wehave several things in I'ntlerwear^that would attract the attention of a^connoisseur. Goods that formerly went^for f8 and 110 can now Iks had for alxmt^half that money. We have many of^those effects in Silk. Lace and Stripes^that you cannot find in any place in^Helena except ^Ymi Know Where
Anotherthing that will attract you is^our stock of Nobby Cardigans. Without^a doubt we can show two styles where^you can find DM elsewhere, while we^chow some styles that you MMl timl^u^ Fine in Quality anywhere. We mean^this anil stand ready to prove it I

Manythings we would like to men^^tion were our space not so limited, but^we must say a word about our Neck^^wear. In this specialty
WEAUK THE BOSS.^Pshaw, they can't hold a candle to us!^Just look at our line and you will agree.^The Styles are the latest. We are not^accountable for the Pntterns, because^our opinion is that the more ridiculous^^ garment, or the louder the pattern,^the more apt to be considered as the^^Proper Thing^ this year. From the^abbreviated ^Chappie^ Box Coat to the^horrid ^Banana^ patterns that adorn^our Vest and Neckties, as they are^Stylish, we must wear them,

theI'uhlle.^Lincoln, Neb., Nov. ^().^InwUiawer to the^question if the Irish National League of^America was going to take any public steps^to relieve the straitened circumstances of^Mrs. Parnell, Piesident John Fitzgerald r^ -^plied in the negative. He said: ^1 think^any public movement in that direction^would be indelicate and indecent, an insult^to the Parnell family and a slur upon the^character of her distinguished son. The re^^ported sad condition of Mrs. Parnell oould^not possibly have resulted from the neglect^of her family. Parnell himself expressed^painful surprise when the intelligence was^conveyed to him, as he had made ample ar^^rangements to siipplv hei financial welfare^Some of those who are urging a public sub^^scription for Mrs. I ameli are men who in^tii. ir craving for notoriety have no^conception of honor or decency, but^I hope the innate delicacy of tin-^Irish character will prevent the Irish^^men of America from playing into^the hands of the nr. tended patriots and^philanthropists. Mrs. Parnell's family^can and will care for her wants without un^^called for public interference.

Alluding to the sup^^pression of the league's books, he said he^I did not direct suspicion against la-wis nor^make allegations against him.
