FIREWORKS SPUTTER AGAIN AT BEACH
The Philadelphia Gets Its First Destruction
of the Season.
Pain's annual fireworks exhibition began last
right at Manhattan Beach, and one more spot on
the light vexed strip of coast between Sea Gate
and the mouth of Sheepshead Bay blazed defiance
at the dark. Both tho moon and the Dreamland
searchlight tried their best to dim the new rival,
however, but with poor suceesß. In spite of the
chilly "weather, a large crowd was on hand— a large
crowd can seem like thirty people in Pain* amphi
theatre—and the opening exhibition of the season
spluttered and flared Itself Into the same favor that
Its predecessors have always won.
"Decatur" is the name of the chief feature of the
display this year— a not inopportune historical epi
sode, surely, his destruction of the Philadelphia, to
represent at this time, though Its opportuneness
could hardly have been predicted when th« exhibi

with the explosion of the Philadelphia's magazines
and the total destruction of the ship.

Here is one of the finest pieces of news that women have read
this season. It senna almost too good to be true — but it IS true, or you know that
it wouldn't be printed here.
The manufacturer had about a hundred and seventy-five dresses, and he wanted
to qr.it. He didn't care what they hid cost him to make. He hhd made his season's
profit; nnd any price he got for them was so much more gain. That's the whole
story —old and commonplace enough; but exciting in the splendid results it presents
The majority of the dresses are of white lawn and point d'esprit, In costntne
style, elaborately trimmed with laces — especially suited to young women going awar
for the Summer, and for graduating purposes. Then there are shirt-waist dresses
of linen, some in blouse styles; and others of cloth of gold, foulards and fancy
materials, prettily trimmed.
Not a dress in the lot would have sold regularly for less than twenty dollars;
and from there the values range up to thirty-five dollars. But since we bought them
for so little, so shall you.
