LEAGUE BASKETHALT' GAMES
Queer Wheelmen ami Feneibles Won
Before Large Crowds.
The Washington Light Infantry Armory
had in it last night one of the Jar-Jst
crowds ever assembled th?re to witness a
basketball game. The drawing card was
the first appearance of the Mount Pleasant
Athletic Club and Queer Wheelmen in a
4rame In the old District Lcagac, and -vis
won by the Queers by tha score of 1 to n.
It was one of the hrst played and most
exciting games of the series, and entirely
free from unnecessary rough playing.
The only goal made in the game was
landed by Loftus In'ihe second inning, i n
a pretty thtow rroiii field. The team
work on Ixith sides was good, the Qaeers
having a little the better in parsing. Six
free throws weic allowed, and of Shese
Capt. Snyder had four, but his usual
steadiness failed him, otherwise the secre
would have had quite a different story
to tell. Tho'e whose work AVas noteworthy
were Von Hoeokman, Loftus, and Tierney,
of the Queers, andSn.ith, Holmead, Suyder,
and Mueller, of the Mount Pleasants.

At the other end of the Avenue, in
the old Globe building, there was auothei
baskethah game, this one between the G
P. O. and National Feneibles teams, the
colls of the new National League. The
Feneibles won by the one-sided score j
11 to ;. The colts vere inclined to
jump the traces at all times, ami frequently
gave signs of taking the bit In their teeth
and running away, but Umpire Brlnkloy
held them dawn and kept them well In
hand. The teams gave a good exhibi
tion of the game, considering the fact that
tliis was their flr.-t appearance In public
The hall was packed to the doors and all
good plays were enthusiastically applauded
by the laige following of each team.
The Soldiers scored seven points in the

Every Trading Stamp
issued by us
is "as good as gold"
and may be exchanged for gold at any time.
Long before the Court of Appeals handed
down its decision adverse to the issuing of
trading stamps we had prepared to protect our
customers from loss in any possible contin
gency by laying aside a cash reserve fund
equivalent to the value of the stamps distrib
uted and we are now ready to redeem every
one of those stamps at their full par value.
You have never lost anything by dealing here
and 3'ou never shall. Had we given away mil
lions instead of thousands of stamps we should
still stand pat to our promise and redeem every
single one of them.
This business was built on a foundation of
honest dealing and straightforward methods,
and the superstructure which has been reared
above is solid, square and plumb. There is no
possible room in our store policy for you to lose
so much as a groat. As we redeem the stamps,
so we have always stood ready to redeem with
cash any Overcoat, Suit or other article of
Clothing bought of us which does not prove
We have always giveu and will continue to
give a little more for your money than any
other clothier in Washington. The trading
stamp was simply another way of giving you
the discount over other merchants' prices which
you have always secured here, and now that
we can no longer give the stamps, we shall
pitch our prices a good round live per cent
lower to compensate for their loss tayou.
Beginning today we will redeem in cash
cverr trading stamp issued by us and presented
at the store. The stamps given by us bear
these numbers and letters on their face:" ,
