lous in the extreme. You get the choice ot a lot of figured
brilliantine and novelty check skirts
worth up to $3.50 for $1.29,
and you get the privilege of credit if you wish it.
The all-wool suits go as the skirts do. Hechts have

another opportunity to buy them tomorrow, for we've brought

Hechts are leading the leaders ! Perhaps the greatest

ery department. Wonderful selling has been done
more wonderful selling will be done hereafter. The
values Hechts tell of to-day are but a drop in a bucket to
what they've in the store to offer you, yet they are the
greatest you'll find anywhere in town.
When Hechts start out to do anything they succeed.
They were sure you wanted a more modern millinery de

Eefeiring to the game forfeited at New
Tork last Tuesday by Pittsburg, the News
of that city says: "The statements of the
players, and even New York newspaper
men, that McDermott 'seemed' to have
made a miEtake, did not justify a wrangle
that endod in a forfeit of what looked like
a winning game."
The Louisville management is not satis
fied with Stafford's work. For a short
time after heleft New York no faultcould
be found with his playing. He soon lapsed,
however, into his old faulte, and has been
guilty or many cosUy fumbles. The Colonels
are looking around for another shortstop,

A simple remedy against the majority
of "headerb" and collisions is to be able
to dismount instantly while riding at full
speed This is quite a common feat, but
there still remain thousands of young and
agile nderH who have not yet attempted
to accomplish It. During the past season a
large numher ot accidents were brought
about by beginners using machines which
did not fit them. It is Just as foolish for a
man to buy a "misfit" bicycle as it is for
him to buy a "misfit" suit of clothes.
No matter what precautions are taken,
however, a certain number of accidents
are sure to happeu, and, unfortunately, the
simplest accidents often produce the most
serious results. A case in point occurrtd
recently when a gentleman was tnrown
from his wheel through a side slip, and
pitched on his right hand.
Though Ills hand was badly scratched
with grit, he rode home without dressing
it. A little while after blood poisoning
set ii, and he was uangerousij m jui
weeks. His is rather a common case,
and cyclers meeting with the same kind
of accident can easily insure safety by
immediately washing the parts in cold
water, so that every trace or foreign
matter is removed trom the hand, which
should then be wrapped in a dry nana- j
kerchief. If the hand la badly torn or
damaged, the rider should wear his arm
in a sling and should not, on any account,
place bis hand on the nanuie oar aga.u,
or use any pressure on it that might force
inwards a fragment of dangerous foreign
One ot the smaller accidents which oc
casionally produce serious results is grit
of tobacco in the eye, or dust from the
roads. There are riders who invariably
smokc while riding short distances, and,
as a result, frequently get tobacco dust
In their eves. When either of these ac
cidents happen, the eye should not be
ruhbed. but- the rider should dismount and
sit down. A friend should get neninu mm
and place a wooden match over the eyelid.
Then seize the eyelashes and pall them
backward over the match, so as to turn
the lid inside out; the foreign matter can
then easily hewipedaway. Foreign bodies
in the- lower lid arc easily removed by
adopting the 'same method.
In Case ota "Header." Taking a "head
er'' oft one's wheel is unfortunately a
rather common accident In case where
the rider is merely stunned, it is only
ncccssary to lay him on hit back, loosen
all clothes at the neck, and keep his htad
whf.ro the fall has resulted In a scalp
wound which bleeds profusely from one
place, the best thing to do is to place a
finger on the wounded spot and press
firmly; then, as sogo as possible, roll a
handkerchief round your spanner, round a
cork, or other hard object, then get an
other handkerchief, and, after placing the
one you have rolled up exactly on the
wound, place the other over it and tie
It tightly round the head.
Where a "header" has resulted in a huge
surface ot broken flesh which bleeds only-
sllghtly. the Injured part should be -'avea

A broken collar bone Is tbe commonest
of all serious bicycle accidents. Whether
a man makes a "header" or is thrown
heavily by a side slip, the chances are
very great that the collar bone is th2 bonr
that w.il. be broken. Falling very heavily
sldewise on the hands or elbows almost
invariably results In a "broken collar bone.

giving aid in emergencies, that the injured
person should not be allowed to stand while
a bandage or riing Is being Improvised and
placed in position. The reason for this 13
that, unlets the patient is sitting or re
clining on the ground, a sudden fainting
or giddiness may ensue, and result in a
dangerous fall. A broken kneecap is an
accident that may easily happen to any
cyclist, and it may he brought about
either by a fall, a stroke of the pedal. or
even by a simple straining to preserve tha
equilibrium in danger of niue slipping.
If Kneecap Is Broken When a kneecap
is broken, the leg is perfectly useless, and
the injured cyclist is unable to stand. The
test thing to do in a case ot that kind
is to place a strong piece of stick at
the back of the knee, then to tie two
handkerchiefs over the kneecap, so as to
keep the two fractured pieces of bone
as near together as possible. If the knee
cap is not broken if it Is merely wrenched
the rider must on no account pedal with
that leg until all pain is completely gone.
In cases wheie this precaution has been
disregarded the result bas often teen a
complete fracture of the kneecap.
In the event of a sprained ankle, a
sprained wrist, or in fact, any 6ort of
a sprain, cold water should be noured

When the blood is bright red, you must
bandage the limb on the side or the wound

the wounded part must always be raised

are very good for the purpose of reducing
