This is what wo have been telling you for some time, and
srs have, wo believe, been the cause of lots of people; paying
us cash for Clothing and saving money.
But there are lots of people who are too high-strung or
too shcrt-siglrted to buy from us.
' The Clothing man who gives them cr?dit is their only
friend and price cuts no figure..
They labor under the impression that when the bill comes
4ue money will be plentiful, but, alas ! how often they are
Then comes the tug of war, Th? Clothing man insists on
being pajj}. *
You'll then look back and see how much better it would
have been had you fcaid in Cash and bought the same, Goods
for less money. '
We can and do sell reliable Clothing at a smaller margin
of profit than Credit Stores can afford to.
It's a plain business proposition, and here are some of
the. reasons :
We get the Cash for every article sold.
We trust no one. '
We h?ve no bad debts;
No losses to make up.
We have no book-keeper to pay,
AiiJ then we always do the square thing, whether the
sale is 25c. or $25 00.
Compare our Goods and prices with those of Credit Stores.
Then trade where your judgment tells you.
We don't want your trade unless you are fully satisfied
that you'll be better treated here.

From Our Own Correspondent,
Washington, D. C, Dec. 2,1001.
Democratic Senators nud Represen

very busy session of Congress lor them
nnd that it will he productive of am
munition that will give tho party a
Congressional victory in next year's
campaign. They Viin probably light
for practical and .substantial trade re
ciprocity that will benefit American
consumers us well ns producers; for
tarif revision, especially on articles
con rolled by trusts; for retrenchment
in \mblie expenditures, which grow
mon extravagant all the. time under
Republican rule; for legislation for tho
suppression or control of trusts, aud
for a reduction in the war taxes, which
arc piling up a Treasury surplus that is
an incentive to extravagant expendi
tures. Perhaps none of these things
may be accomplished, but they are live
issues, aud their agitation by the Dem
ocrats in Congress will keep them be
fore tho people, und cannot fail to be
beneficial to the Democratic party. In
addition to lighting for this much
needed legislation, the Democrats in

Although it has been repeatedly
denied that Secretnry Root promised
the Cubans tariff concessions ou their
sugar nud tobacco, the developments
of this week made it quite certain that
he did, and that the administration is
doing all it can to iunke Congress re
deem tho promise. Secretary Root
j argues for these concessions, in his an
nual report, both for material and
j moral reasons, and endeavors to add
I strength to his argument by implying
that Mr. McKinley was in favor of

Mr. Roosevelt has made several Sena
tors very mad by turning'down their
recommendations for the promotion of
some of their nruiy favorites, and he
rubbed salt in the raw places by telling

Spenkingof tho army, Adjutant Gen
eral Corbin has had his way, and an

gusted officers on tho one hand, who
do hot sco tho necessity for making
themselves conspicuous while perform

prise on the part of. callers at tho War
Department who had no idea there
were so many officers engaged in that
class of work.
The Chinese Minister to tho United
States has upon several occasions, nota

year, shown himself capable of doing

impudent thing,s but he never did a
more impudent thing thau when ho
cniled on Mr. Roosevelt this week for
the purpose of trying to persuade him
to aid in preventing the re-enactment
of the Chinese exclusion law, that will
expire next May. For much smaller
offences foroign ministers hnvo been
given their passports, but the Chinese
Minister scams to be a privileged char
acter with this administration, as ho
was with the last. Eye h a school boy
knows that it is a violation of diplo
matie usage tor a diplomat to call on
the President about business; also that
diplomats have no business to meddle
with legislative matters in the countries
to'which they are accredited. It docs
not lessen the Chinese Minister's j
offence-that Mr. Roosevelt.is already
committed to re-enactment of tho Chi
nose exclusion law.
i It looks as though tho Panama Canal

Panama Canal Company, who has been

There are extenuating circumstances
that draw tlie mantle ot charity over

The Intelugenckk was enthroned
among tho ravage of moving a printing

one pf the sweetest virtues of sympathy
?thitt it it* as blessed to g?v??Mercy
as receive? and that it is prone any
time under like social ravages to have
pen stubs and slivers r? pencil wrapped
up, so to speak, incorporated in tho
manuscript that seeks admission
through tho editorial door? If it has
so learned, then "sweet are tho uses ot
adversity." I looked for my pen and
ink to-day and was told I might probr
bly lind them among tho dinner dishes
or among tho table linen, as they were
where they would surely bo cared for;
I doubted tho probability of such a
"lind," but fonnd them later, I was
told, in n bor that was under a stove.
1 never minded, but looked under tho
house, where among some broken glass
I luckily discovered tho sweepings off
the desk, where wero a couple of pen
cil stubs inch long which, in the inven
tive emergency of Robinson Cruso, I
sharpened with the glass splinters, and
while tho men wero hauling things
around, like Patience on a monument,
I sat on a chair and scribbled. To bo
able to turn one's mind instantly from
one engaging subject to another, with
out lackof cahyness, and with supreme
self-control, is ono of the absorbing
psychic studies of tho day. This I
practiced while the lumboriug rumbled
on nnd perceived in my stub pencils as
much dexterity as in the most pliant
Ensterbrook or Rank Point.

Leaving a place means going some
where, as there is no termination to

In this instance the "somewhere" in

of the two?the pleasure I am aban
doning, and the one 1 am about to.,
enter, I would say: It is not that L

I shall leave the quiet haunts of this
little place for the busier encounter
with life duties as they surround us all
where the interests of homo are to bo
guarded. 1 shall see the same days
and nights, the same suns and stars
set in the. firmament, the same big
round moon, or silver sickle looking *
mo dreamily in the face. I shall hear
the birds sing iu the home woods; tho
same thoughts shall como to mo, the
sanio pictures of the past, and all ten

has reached here of a robbery which
took place on Thursday, 28th inst,
near Hibler, in this county, by which
Mr. John Drennan. an old man of
misorjy habits, lost $1,500 in cold cash
and many vnluable papers, titles and
mortgages of real estate.
Tho old man was known to have
money hid nbout his premises, but has
never been molested. He was advised
often to deposit his money in a bank
hut ho always refused.
On the day ho was robbed ho loft tho
house to go to a certain place on his
farm, and returned in a few hours to
find that ono of the strongboxes con
taining money had been broken open
and 81,500 taken out ns stated above.
The report did not reach here until
to-day. Apparently there is no clue to
the robbery. It is said by those who
knew him that, if the robbers had not
been in a hurry and had only taken
the trouble to loot further, they would
have found at least 84,000 more.
