Thursday, when the foregoing words were
addressed to him. He turned around.
Instead of seeing the two strangers with
glasses raised to their lips to drink to the
toast which one of them had uttered, a re
volver confronted him.
"Now, Sir. Saloonkeeper, we .are out for
the stuff," said one of the robbers, "and we
must have It. Get your hands up quick."
Up went Burghoft's hands. Herman
Quante of No. SOW Bulwer aenue and Fred
Wolff of No. 421 Prairie avenue were in the
saloon at the time. Addressing them the
robber who had done all of the talking ad
vised them not to Interfere. He then or
dered his companion back of the bar to
get the money from the cash register.
Quante and Wolff were rudely Interrupted In
a, game of domlnos they were playing.
The robber with the pistol compelled the
three men to line up against the wall, and,
holding the pistol so as to cover the trio,
kept them prisoners until the other thief
removed from the cash register about $10.
The robbers then backed from the saloon
to the street. Before their victim could
ifreach the door they had escaped In the fog
Half an hour before the arrival of the
robbers. Burghoff had gone to the door. As
he returned to the barroom he remarked to
Quante and Wolff that It was an ideal night
for a hold-up.
The police were Immediately notified of
the robbery. The robbers wore no masks
and good descriptions of them were given
to the police, who expect to capture them

Lent beginning later than usual this -tear,
there has not been quite the customary
ruh to order the spring outfit as when Ash
Wednesday comes much earlier, but the
last few das there has been much talk of
the spring gowns, the new materials, com
paring of samples and colors, so that the
new fashions will soon be wor.n.
First and prominent In the spring outfit
comes the tailor gown, and this vear, onlng
to the firm hold the bhou tklrt has attained
on popular favor, the old-fashioned and so
called tailor-made suit Is again in style, and
very 6mart it is. nith its simple lines, lack
of trimming and beauty of cut and fit.
The dressmaker tailor-made gown is a
much more elaborate affair, with trimming
and a general appearance of dressiness that

SPRING DRESS MATERIALS.

In the list of dress materials for tucked,
ruffled, or shirred summer dresses, new
double-width India mulls, with backgrounds

THE "WAY OF THE WORLD.
Isn't it strange how people
Are stirred in their keenest way
By the tragic things that happen
To the characters in a play?
How they .applaud to the echo
Soma brave, heroic deed.
Or weep o'er the pictured sorrows.
They find In a book they read.
And yet in the world around us '
Are always stories we find
Of brave, unequal battles fought
To which they are .hopelessly blind.

THREE STYLISH BLOUSES.
Monte Carlo .Model Has Pleats Across
The Monte Carlo blouse Is cne of the fash
ionable new styles that aDDear In sheer and
soft mnterla'.a It has wide pleats across
tne front, in bolero style, and Is usually
made with a yoke of lace, tucks and embroider-
Another stylish waist Is the Alice
Roopevelt, which has long shoulder straps
extending over the sleeve in a point and
forming part of an artistic-looking yoke,
which Is all one piece. It has a sheath
sleeve, which opens over a slightly gath
ered ruff, finished with a wristband. Tie
piping Is of bright plaid and merely shows
a cord of color.
Probably the smartest of the new styles
Is the Unique waist, with Us lovely flower
petal yoke and sleeve cap. Nothing In the
waist lino has ever been cut more artisti
cally than the long flower petals that
form the yoke ana sleeve tops. These
graceful pieces are usually richly em
broidered or trimmed In some way, some
times with only a self-stitched fold.
FROCKS FOR GIRLS.
Dresses Are Trimmed With Rands of
Slllc or Satin.
LJght-graj nun's veiling frocks re
thought very smart, for young girls, and
are made in the coat-and-sklrt designr as
well as in the regular frock with lace,
yoke or collar. The, coat and
skirt are trimmed on .Just the same
lines as when intended for- older women,
and are trimmed with either plain or
stitched bands of silk or satin, with white
braid, or have bands of black, and white
silk on the skirt and collar revere and :uffs
faced with silk to match. Tan and dark
or light blue veiling frocks are atao most
attractive, and are trimmed with narrow
velvet ribbons, cither black or several
shades darker than the material. The
skirts are made with circular flounce or In
tucks or plaits, and the waist, always with
blouse effect in front, matches the skirt;
that is. If plaited or tucked, the same effect
is seen In the waist, while if the skirt Is
comparatively plain, the waist has yoke or
collar of lace outlined with narrow velvet
TOUCH OF A VANISHED HAND.
We sigh for the touch of a vanished hand
The hand of a friend most dear.
Who has passed from our side to the
Rut what Qf the hand that Is near?
To the living's touch Is the soul Inert
That weeps o'er the silent urn?
For the loc that lives is our hand alert
To make some sweet return?
Do we answer back in a fretful tone
When life's duties, press us sore?
Is our praise as full as if they were gone.
And could hear our praise no more?
As the das go by. arc our hands more
For a trifle beyond their share.
Than to grasp for a kindly helpful life
The burden some one must bear?
We sigh for the touch of a vanished hand.
And we think ourselves sincere;
But what of the friends that about us
And the touch of the hand that's here?

reservation to her ; she never breaks a confidence, and her advice is the best'
in the world.
The questions asked of a woman by a male physician are embarrassing
and often revolting to a sensitive nature. In consequence the whole truth is
not told ; this makes it difficult for female troubles to be successfully treated
even by the best physicians, and is the reason so many women grow worse
rather than better. A woman understands a woman better than a man,
there are symptoms which sick women have that a man cannot understand,
simply because he is a man, but the whole truth may be told to Mrs. Pinkham.
and her vast experience enables her to give advice which leads to a cure.
All women who suffer should secure Mrs. Pinkham's advice; it costs
nothing but a letter addressed to her at Lynn, Mass. Female troubles are real
troubles, and must be treated understanding. For a quarter of a century
Mrs. Pinkham's advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound have been
helping women to get strong and well, and her great file of letters prove that
more than a, million women have been restored to health and strength by her
advice and her medicine when all other means have failed.
When you go to a druggist for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
do not let him persuade yoit to try something which he says is just as good;
there is nothing just as good, because Mrs. Pinkham's medicine holds the record
for the largest number of cures of any female medicine in the world.

These crossing lines give an effect of

No man should ever make excuses to a

LIGHT CLOTH BLOUSES.
Soft Mohair Is Used In Making; These
Light cloth blouses, severely plain, have
been the popular wear as separate waists

the new soft mohair in white and In light

White Tulle Toques Are Worn at

Hats and toques of white tulle are worn
at afternoon weddings and receptions, and
the tulle is tucked, ghlrred. ruched. quilled

hardsome dress, though it is not to be de

still most .modish all-white costume.

PLAIST OF A LOVER.
I bought a gilt bonbonniere
With wide pink ribbon gay.
She thanked me for the dainty gift
In a most bewitching way,
I went In debt for violets:
She repturously confessed
She doted on the purple flowers.
And pinned them on her breast.
I pawned my watch to buy a fan:
She let me call her Grace
And kis her In the dusky hall
Behind its spangled lace.
But when I brought a soiltalre. ,
Her maiden vow to bind.
I found it. with a freezing look.
