The site may be right, but quality is of

might find your size among the men's suit

They're none too good; none too poor for the
price; as good as capital and experience can
put together tor these figures.
In calculating on low-priced suits, it might
be well to wait for our May 1st sale 32 suits

England and Russia,
London, April 18. The following may be
said in regard to the Russian controversy at
present: Although all the surface indica
tions warrant the statement that the prospect
is one of peace, the only
description of the actual situation which
can be given as literally accurate,
is contained in the statement that the xitua
tion is practically unchanged. Such a state
ment i? rather oracnlir, but so is the situation,
for no one outside the Cabinet 9eemsto know
just what it is. It may be set down as abso
lutely true that the rise and fall of the war talk
durihg the ten days past has been largely due
to seculation. Never in the history of mod
ern times has such an amonnt ot money been
interested in a change of public opinion of a
single nation. Enormous sums invested out
and out by Berlin, Vienna, Paris and London
capitalists in Russian securities and Brit
ish consols have compelled a vast and power
ful interest to maintain and spread
good news. Owners of the millions of idle
money in London and in the continental
bourses seeking investment constitute a great
power. On the other baad, an equally pow
erful class whose interest is to break by se
curing; and circulating bad news. This strug
gle to retain against this battle to
sell has been largely responsible
tor most of the war news given
to the public during the past fortnight. Very
little news has originated in any form from
either the Russian or English government.
It is not yet known what the result has been
of the efforts of the Russian government to
negoMate a loan with the Russians.
It is believed, however, that the
Rothschilds hare declined Russia's terms.
It is believed that several operations, the con
clusion of which were based on the success of
the negotiation, have recently been aban
doned because of the alleged refusal by the
Rotschilds to make the requested loan. Gen
eral Yannouski, Russian Minister of War,
it is stated, is suffering from ill
health and desires to retire. General
X. C. Broutcheff is named as his successor.
General Vannouski belongs to the peace par
ty in St. Petersburg. It is not generally
believed that he is ill, and should be retire, it
will be regarded as a concession to the
Niw Tore, April 18 8:30 a. m. General
Grant fell into a quiet sleep immediately alter
10 o'clock and slept well until 2 a. mn
when he awoke and took nourishment.
He soon fell asleep again nntil 5 o'clock,
when he awoke and nourishment was anin
giren him. He then slept lightly until C
o'clock, when he awoke, folly, took his coffee,
dressed and is now moving quietly about the
room. Pulse and temperature are nominal.
New York, April 18. Last night's re
freshing, unbroken sleep was another stride
towards General Grant's recovery. He sleeps
without being troubled with his cough. The
General appeared at the office window
which adjoins his bedroom, and noticing
the reporters walking down the opposite side
of the street, graciously returned their spon
taneous salute. The General looked very
much improved in personal appearances and
will, it is expected, take a drive out today or
tomorrow, should the weather permit.
New York, April 18. The curtains be
hind part of the General's window was lowered
and p ished atide, and the General himself ap
peared at the window. His face wore a
strained expression that was almost painful,
and he staod erect with the use of his
cane. As Dr. Douglas was leaving
the bouse, between four and fire o'clock, he
was asked when the next bulletin would be
issued. He said that so further bulletin
would be issued today, because the patient
was so comfortable there was no necessity for
a bulletin. The General will probably be
taken to the Catskills.
Three Men Hanged.
Kansas City, April 18. The Tiines's
Springfield, Mo, special says: The news re
ceived from Chadwick is that one hundred
armed men visited the jail at Forsytbe, in
Tany county, in Southwestern Missouri, last
night, and took therefrom Frank and Tubal
Taylor. They had also captured Slegal Sub
lette, and it is believed that the three men
were hanged in the woods adjoining the
town, though their bodies bave not yet been
found. The trio made a murderous
assault last week upon Postmas
ter J. T. Dickerson and his
wife at Eglington, professing to hold an old
grudge against tbem. In the struggle Dick
erson wi.s seriously hurt. The would-be mur
derers were pursued, and for a day or two
were surrounded and kept imprisoned in a
cave in the woods where they had taken ref
uge. They succeeded in making their escape
but were captured soon afterwards.
A Female Miser.
New York, April 18 Last Tuesday an
old woman named Sands,died on a small farm
in West Chester county. She was supposed to
bepoor, but when ber effects were examined
today there was found, sewed np in an
old petticoat, $30,000 in greenbacks; bank
books showing deposits ot $110,000, and
$100,000 in bonds. In addition to these Mrs
Sands left real estate in various parts of Ibis

The bulk of the estate, under the will, will
go to her four nephews.

He Got Ahead of the Barber.
A very amusing episode occurred in one of
the leading barber shops here last Friday
evening. One ot the members of the Mexican
Orchestra stepped into the shop, and took a
seat in one of the chairs. He spoke the En
glish language very correctly, but with a
foreign accent, being himself a Spaniard.
After being shaved the barber asked
him if he would bave bay rum
on his bair, to which the gentleman
replied in the affirmative. The tonsorial art
ist, who was a German, had no idea that bis
customer could speak the German language,
and he concluded that he would play a little
joke on him. He was so taken up with bis
little scheme that he could not keep it to
himself, and told one of the other barbers
what he proposed to do, which was to give the
customer the bay rum "straight" and have a
little fun. He told this in the German lan
guage, and the two barbers laughed heartily,
thinking that it was known only to them
selves. All this time the Mexican musician
"never smiled," but at the end of the conver
sation he turned to the barber, and to the let
ter's surprise and discomfiture, asked:
"Sprechen Bie Deutsch?" The manipulator
of the razor colored as red as a rose, and was
so "bored" that he could not answer. The
other barbers and the Mexican had a good
laugh at his expense, and it is needless to say
that the joke was not carried out.
Mr. Will H. Grove, the efficient and popu
lar day clerk at the Lagonda House, has

Springs for the coming summer, and "ill
take possession about the 15th of May. Mr.
Grove was at Yellow Springs Friday, when
the arrngements were all completed. Be
tween this time aid the time of opening the
hotel for the season, Mr. Grove will have the
bouse thoroughly renovated and repaired, and
will refurnish it at considerable expense. He
will then run it in first-class style, and his
many friends hope that he will meet with
success. Superintendent Ralph Peters, of
tha Little Miami, has promised to run a train
down from this city on Sunday morning
about 9 o'clock, returning at about G:30 Sun

portunity ot spending Sunday at the Springs
at a trifling expense.
Yesterday afternoon assistant superintend
ent of the chain gang, Johnson, who lives on
Scott street between Harrison and Pleasant,
sent bis son out to the stable to get some hay.
While the latter was walking around the loft
he came across a lot of plug tobacco. He re
ported the matter to his father, who in turn
reported it to the police. Last night Officers
Nicklas and Ward went to the house and took
possession of the goods, which is supposed to
be stolen property.

him np in jail. Word was then tele
graphed to Colurabus that Davis bsd
been captured. Last night Inspector Boyd

games took place. The lovere of the game
were to have been treated to considerable
sport, Mr. Fisher having the Day tou3 "booked"
for Wednesday and the Detroit League team
for Friday and Saturday. Owing to the bad
weather, however, the grounds could not be

the Association was organized, and as it has
been found impossible to secure aaother city,
one of these bai to be dropped. After care

To Much Salvation Army.
Yesterday afternoon about five o'clock
Officer Caldwell's attention wa3 attracted by
a crowd of perhaps fifty boys, running along
the street aud shouting and laughing. He
sjon caught up with them and at once saw
the cause of the crowd. In the midst of it
was Dave Fitzgerald, a chronic "drunk," and
a regular boarder at the station house, whether
drunk or sober. Dave had been drinkingand
to his disordered mind, it seemed as if he
was the axis of the earth, and the latter was
whirling around him. On his head was a
"Young Men's Democratic Club" plue hat, on
which were painted the words, in large black
letter?, "Salvation Army." On his back was
also pinned a large placard bearing the same
inscription. The boys were having consider
able fun at the expense of the Salvation
Army, but this was suddenly interrupted by
Officer Caldwell, who took Dave to the station-house.
The freight agent of the I., B. k. W. road
makes the startling statement that during
the month of April, thus far, the I., B. & W.
has shipped fifty car-leads of furniture and
household goods from this city to other

two hundred people have left this city "for
pastures new" by this road alone during the
past eighteen days of the present month.

Royal Council No. 81 meets the first and
third Tuesdays of each month at 7:30 p. m.

that has caused "God's beautiful sunlight of

of the full amount of his beneficirry.
Yesterday afternoon "Hump" Gilli.-pie, a
well-known gambler, whos name has graced
the police records time: without number,
escaped from the chain gang through
the carelessness of the Superintendent, James
Goode, or his deputy. While Gillespie dresses
well and acts "tony" he is no better than
many of the other prisoners on the
chain gang, and when brought down to
a level with all of them by his own vices he
should not be allowed any more privileges
than any of the rest. But on account of bis
good clothes and through partiality on the
part of Ihe Superintendent, he has been al
lowed to walk to the workhouse in adran;e
of the "gang" wha are chained together by
twos, and would not be taken to be a
prisoner by any one, who should see
him walking along unaccompanied by
an officer. Yesterday afternoon, on the way
to the station bouse from the work hoase,
Gillespie took advantage of the favors shown
him and escaped. He had yet about ten day3
to serve. Council should take cognizance of
this state ot affairs and reprimand the sujier
intendent for bis action.

appoint one or two policemen in this place,

We need a guardian of the peace in this place
very much; not that there are any very great

The elocutionary entertainment given by
Mark Morrow in our church on, last Tuesday
evening was quite a success. The readings
selected by him were very appropriate and
showed good judgment on his part. Mark

The following is copied from Mr. J. M.
Berger's Lagondi notes in Springfield Daily
Gazette, of the lClh inst.:
J. M. Derrickson, whom we highly honor
as a citizen, and who visited Catawba last
week, on a race with a citizen of that place,
ate fifteen eggs, and what be did with the
rest we are not prepared to say.
The reason Mr. J. M. Berger was not pre
pared to say what became ot the rest of the
eggs, is this The, article ot agreement be
tween the two egg-eaters was to the effect
that all eggs left over were to be given to the'
referee. Mr. John Meloncholly Berger acted
as referee for the above match, and, accord
ing to the agreement, the uneaten eggs were
given to him. He, in the short space of
twenty-three minutes, safely stowed beneath
his belt twenty-seven hard-boiled hen fruit.
In addition, he also ate two pounds and a
half of limburger cheese, washing it down
with a half gallon of milk. Mr. J, M. Ber
ger will hereafter wear the belt.
On next Th ursday evening at the home of

There is already a fair reserve for "A
Bunch of Keys," which is to be presented at
the Grand tomorrow night. The play is so
intensely ludicrous in situations that it never
fails to provoke the heartiest laughter. It is
of much the same order as "A Parlor Match,"
being a farcical comedy of the broadly absurd
type, and is overflowing with fun. The box
sheet is now open at Carter's.

a return engagement. The .prices of admis
sion will be only 50, 35 and 20 cents. The
company is a very strong one and the charac
ters in the piece are invested with a diverse
individuality that gives each a distinction ot
its own and makes a group ot interesting
parts. Seats can now be secured at Carter's.
