Just after Mr. Dalzell had secured the
passage of a bill authorizing the construc
tion of a bridge across the Monongahela
river, the gentleman from the Blue Grass
State caught the Speaker's eye, aud in
less time than it takes to tell it he bad
secured unanimous consent for the con
sideration of his bill establishing a I nited
States Court at Catlettsburg, in the East
ern district of Kentucky.
In answer to a question from Mr.
Payne, the Republican floor leader, Mr.
Kehoc stated that no Federal Court was
held within 150 miles of Catlettsburg nor
any within two Congressional districts
containing a population of 430,000. Mr.
Kehoe was prepared to furnish any in
formation on the subject needed, and
made it perfectly clear why the court
should be established. There was no op
position, and the bill went through. The
member from the Ninth Kentucky dis
trict was warmly congratulated on his

Factory Ends of Linens
At LESS THAN COST.
When searching the market a buyer occasionally meets a bargain face to face that almost takes his breath.
Such was our experience. These are the facts. After filling orders every factory has short lengths of table damask
that range from to 3 yards long. These lengths are a nuisance to the maker and he is almost willing to give them
away to make a clean riddance. That is the deal we chanced on last month and now the lengths are here for you at
prices you never enjoyed before. Any piece will make a good tablecloth. They're in perfect condition, just as good
as if you'd buy them from the piece. Be sure to see the bargain lengths. Prices begin as low as 88c. for a full size
tablecloth. Wise women who are thrifty managers will make the most of this suggestion.
