White Cannon Cloth
Shirt Waist Suits $1.98.
Wo had a small supply of those Shirt Waist Suits last week but
Sold them all out in half a day?Didn't even have time to advertise
The Waist is made -with perpendicular tucks and the Skirt has a
Reven gored flare with a one inch strap on each seam.
All sizes in these Suit? from 32 to 42 but as we haven't a very
large number of them YOUR size may go quickly.
The reason for the low price and limited quantity is, that tho
manufacturer, not wishing to carry his left-over material until next
?spring, made it up at ?i sacrifice on the early seasons prices.
We also have seperate Skirts of White Cannon Cloth for $1,25
made in exactly the same manner as tho skirts to tho Suits. All sizes
from 38 to 45 inches in length.
Turkish Bath Towels, 121-2c.
They're unusually large axtd heavy unbleached Towels at this
price, but then tve are not asking full value for them, we have a
goodly number of several other kinds, and prices h?ave gotten about
down to the bottom for the August sale.
Smaller Towels, 18x38 inches,
?or 10o. They are smaller only
"by comparison and think for a
inoment after you look at this
?Towel what an excellent one it is
15c for Unbleached Hemmed Tow?
els, 26x46 IncheB. They'd sell for 21c
If they wern't a little soiled.
Pure White Towels, 22x50 Inches,
for 17c. Very absorbent.
25c for a large sized Towel?27x5+
Inches. Woven loosely, which makes
It very absorbent.

Here is that Bijou Bunohl
The bunch that has made all Richmond
laugh, and that ?carries the latchBtrlnu
of the -whole town lu Its pocket.
After a delightful trip by boat over
the Patten line from Now York up the
Shrewsbury Rlvor, we landed at the
Pleasure finy wharf, where Jake Wells'
crowd of merrymakers Ik holding forth
to the dellgtit of the denizens of the
coast from Asbury Park to Sandy Hook.
And at the wharf, who should meet us
Irut "Aunt Jim," Panch?n, the Cricket;
"Maw" Mitchell, dainty Sister Nichols;
Dan Marble, Johnnie Johnson Tony Hart
end ('eon,"- Nlckols?all members of tho
jolly Trouble Club!
There were a few moments of clnd
handshaking and hearty greetings, and
the line was formed for the short march
to the club, located in the grand old
Lester Wallack cotta-re, with Its wide vor
andahs. Its shade trees, its inviting ham?
mocks, its ocean breezes.
To the east the billows from over the
peas rolled upon the Long Branch sands,
and to the west ran the placid water of
the beautiful Shrewsbury, and across the
street nestled the pretty cottnge just
purchased by Otis Harland, where his
Paw from Seattle told how to catch wild
crabs with a sinker.
Down .on the bosom of the river float?
ed proudly George Nichols' launch, that
was destined to take un on a famous trip
to Red Hank, where we enjoyed a clam?
bake that could not have been excelled,
made by the shapely hands of Sister and
Over close to the river lay the hotel,
?where Little Chips and Dave Andarda and
Bode, with the Bunch, put up.
And then we found them with John
Dunn and little Mary Marble In their own
cottage not far away.
While Mortlo Seaman handled the. bus?

Nothing hut lino weather confronted us
and surrounded us nil the time, arid wo
Khali never inrgot'thc trip in the launch;
handled 'so skillfully by George Nichols
and Dan Marble, with their yachting caps
on, not to mention the chase after the
dog made by Johnnie Johnson, becaiino
the dog ran nwa.y and stayed four hours,
without asking permission from Sister.
Then tbero was Paw Harlan, who cam?
over every few minutes to see Maw and
tell her about things that happened in

And then those meals!
"Bring In the meat." said Tony Hart,
"we have company and we must make
the most of meat, for when wo have no

Then all hands laughed and the portly

Tho man straightened himself up with a

beauty of the spot and the charming com

"When she regained consciousness 1

of a vesel which seemed to bo sailin;
slowly along under a light breeze. He
dazed senses could not at first take In tli

some vivid dream that sho had not ye

irolce of Cunningham speaking to Green
and the events of tho night before flash

fused remembrance of some words pass
ing b-?tween them seemed to float acrosi
her brain, nnd then?nothing.
How had she come here? Whero wai
she? Where was she going? Her hen
was anything but clear, as she lay li

At this moment the fall of a heav"j
footstep shook the deck beside her.
"So, you are awake at last, are yot
Kate?" asked the voice of her cousin
"You must pardon tho violent way lr,
which I took you from your friends, but
you have mo to thank for tho fact that

"Thank you for being nllve? How so?"
asked the girl, roused by his remark.
"Because Mt. Pelee Is on the point of
blowing up. Wo are on tho other side of
the island now, hut wo can see It plainly,
and I doubt If when it does'so St. Pierre
will contain many living souls."
"There aro times, Allan Cunningham,
when one would rather be dead than

dead than Iti'8 with me, eh?"
"Live with you! I live with you! What
do you mean by that?"
"Just what I say. You will live with
mo. I could not got you by fair means,
so I took you by foul. You had the
chance twice to tako me when I spoke
you fair, but you scorned me, and now
you are mine. Might makes right."
The girl shut her oyeH and groaned.
Then opening them and looking at him,
"You cowt-.rd, do you think that you
can force mo to live with you?"
"I not only can but will, fair Kate."
His face had an ugly look upon It that
boded ill for tho girl and hor face blanched
as sho looked at him. "You can do no?
thing," he continued. "You aro helpless
At this moment there was an awful
crash In tho distance, and black smoko,
mingled with flame, towered into the air
above tho Island.
"My God!" cried Cunningham, "Pelea
has gone up at last!"
Th? frightful crash, together with his
oxclamatlon of surprise and horror,
brought Kate Montague to her feet. She
gazed at the spectacle In the distance,
forgetful of the man beside her, of his
sinister design, only hlnklng of the denr
friends that she had left behind her In
the fated city, nnd wondering what had
ho-ome of them. She could not know that
they had gone to their long home in the
quickness of the Hash of tho volcano, and
that before the sound had reached her
they had been enveloped In the death
dealing blast, merciful in Its horrible
All hands on the schooner were tem?
porarily paralyzed by the awful sight.
Huge clouds continued to pile up Into tho
air mountains high, while the sea beneath
the vessel absolutely trembled.
"Get away from here. Green!" shouted
Allan Cunningham, coming to himself
nt last. "Put the schooner about and run
before what breeze thero is."
"Where shall we go?" was the dazed
Port de France, Porto Rico, anywhere,
as long as wo get out of the night of
this dust. You see we are dead, to lee?
ward of the volcano at present. Get
every ptltcll of canvas on her and let us
work out of this."
Tho little schooner was quickly brought
'ip to tho wind, light though It was, and
all sill put on her that would draw.
"That is better," said Allan, as ho
gazed aloft. "Now we stand a chance of

rolled away Into tho sky. Up, Up they

Then as she stood there, silent and Im?

she grasped the rail with both hands an.
dropped her head between them.
Cunningham, who still stood near het
looked at her curiously, but ventured n.
remark. Even he, hard-hearted villa!)
that he was, had been overcome by th?
sight of the burning mountain and thi
?langer which they had escaped.
The girl burled her faca In her hands
ns her thoughts went back to her happy
quiet home, the broad, cool veranda, thos?
last words with Ralph, his protestation:
of love that afternoon upon the cliff.
"Too late! Too lato!" she moaned t?
herself. "Ralph, Ralph, I know now, ?:
I did not then! Ah, I may nover see yoi
again! Never hear your volco say that
you love me, and but me alone!"
Sho clenched her hands In tho agonj
of her despair, but uttered not a sound.

The schooner ran Into tho harbor ol
Fort de France, and anchored not fai
from tho shore and directly o-l the Ion?
quay that runs out Into the water.
When all sails were furled, and the day
was almost at an end, Cunningham came
"1 am going ashore to find suitable
lodgings. Kate. Will you come with rue,
or will you stop aboard? Most of the
crew are gplng."
"What do f care about your lodgings?
They are nothing to me."
"They are for you and me, fair cousin!"
"Allan Cunningham, you would not
"Dare! I would dare anything for
Kate Montague! In this part of the
world a man Is not asked many quts
tions, thank heaven, and women count
for but little. You will go with me when
I return, or you will never go with any?
"It might be better so. I would much
rather die than he yours!"
"Life has Its charms, even with me,"
he replied with a laugh, "I shall leave
a man aboard to look after you, and
when I come back I expect to find that
you have grown more reasonable. Don't
be a fool!" he added, harshly. "You
cannot escape me, so you better make
the best of it."
Kate sank down on the deck near by.
"Leave me, you brute," she said, de?
spairingly. "At least leave me in peace
for a while!"
"Ah, you are coming to your senses
already, are you! Yes, I will leave you,
and when I come hack, as I have said,
1 think that you will be In a more ra?
tional state of mind."
The crew, during this converstlon. were
piling Into the hoats that were already
alongside of the schooner and were im?
patient to be off.
"Coma along, Cunningham!" shouted
Green. "Can't you leave tho lady for a
while? She don't seem over fond of your
lie gave a sardonic chuckle as he ut?
tered these words. Little ho cared, one
way or the other, but he wished to got
"I'm coming," growled Allan, as he
turned to leavo the girl. "Mind you,
when I come back, you will go with mo!"
he added, as ho stopped nnd looked down
"Go! Go! Leavo me in peace, fop
heaven's sake!" she moaned.
