THIS KEPUBL10: SUNDAY. JULY 26. 1903.
Where the overcrowded stockrooms are now
located, when workmen are finished with the al
terations necessary to make the transformation,
will be located one of the largest and most mod
ernly equipped photograph galleries west of New
York City. Every new device, the best and latest
fixtures will be installed, and photographs will be
old customers at The Meyer 5tore Prices, meaning
for very much less than photographs can be bought
for in St. Louis now. But more about this new de
partment when it is ready for business.
What to do with the reserve merchandise in the
crowded stockrooms while alterations are in prog
ress! No place or room for them anywhere but on
the bargain counters and tables; so immense quan
tities of newest and freshest goods go on sale for
the least prices ever known, giving customers the
richest bargain pickings The fleyer Store has
ever attempted. You must come expecting to find
the most phenomenal bargains ever put on sale
anywhere, and your greatest expectations will be
realized. Such reductions are without parallel.

anscdote of James McNeill Whistler, -which
corrects certain apocrjphal versions at tlie
late artist' marriage:

widow of Mr. Goodwin, the architect, she
was a remarkably prcttj woman, and vcr.v
agreeable, and both she and he were thor
"I was dinlne with them and pome others
one evening at part's Court. They were
obviously greatly attracted to each other
and in a vague sort of way they thought
of marrjlng, so I took the matter In hand
to bring things to a practical point.
"'Jimmy,' I said, -will jou marrv Mrs.
" 'Certalnlv.' he replied.

chaplain of the House of Commons to per
form the ceremony. It took place a few
days later. After the ceremony was over
we adjourned to Whistler's studio, where
he had prepared a banquet. The banquet
was on the table, but there were no chairs,
so wo sat on packing rases. The lisppv
pair when I left had not quite decided
whether they would go that evening to
Paris or remain in the studio.
"How unpractical they wero was shown
when I happened to meet the bnd.t tho
