Wo miMtn't lead you to an erronlous do
tlon. Not everything we make takes at
sight, or sells nt a big profit. We ought to
make some mistakes in judgement. We are
npt to think too well of some sorts and make
too many. Kipcrlence has taught ui tho'
that It's much better to err In making too
many Tine garments than to pile up the poor
qunlitlcsi for some one la lure to want a good
garment at some price. Proof Is shown by
tho enormous sale we'vo bad In Globe Mills
fine ctuslmcro and worsted pantaloons since
dropping tho price lo $5.
Think you ouly ol $5 pants? We haro
four times tho variety wo had last year, and
then our stock looked big. From solid
working pints nt $1 and $1.25 to the fine
OIoIk'3 wu've reduced. Every line la com

A Tew kilts and short pant suits $1. A
few "shoppers" lu men's, suits we don't care
to brash, $5. Staple suits $3.50 and $4.50.
II we setl fur hnlf our usual prices you'll
find It out too i enough. Not likely to do it
though, it's not bmlnedshkc. Is it reasona
ble to expect thut we should know, even If
wo were, selling suits for the half other deal
ers ask ?
A lino ol men's fine corkscrew eulti
tumbled to $10 jejterday. We don't know
that these suiU wero ever worth $20, we
doubt if they were ever worth $10, but at
the dropped price they certainly ought to be
looked nt. Wist entranco table.

ered and Scalped The Troop In Pur
suit. Sirran City, A- T., Juno 8. The past
week has been one of unexcoeded suspense
and terror In Silver City. Never have the
Indians on their bloody raids come so near
the city. The newspaper accounts sent
east are very meagre, because of tho fear
that It will prevent emigration to this sec
tion. The first news of the proximity of the
Indians was received on Wednesday of last
week, when a boy, riding a horse white
with foam, dashed into town from Welfy's
ranch, on Hear Creek. He brought word
that hostile Indians were in the hills, and
that an attack on the ranch, In which there
were gathered many women and children,
was expected, and help was needed. A
wplunteer company ot thirty-four men was
soon organized and went to the rescue.
At 7:80 o'clock the ranch was reached.
All tho families within a radius of seven
miles wero collected there except one. A
party set off to bring them In, while two
other parties started for a water holo in the
kills whero they expected to find tho Indi
ans, but the latter had fled. Returning to
the ranch a larger party was organised to
go to Juniper Springs, but the Indians had
fled from that spot also. Scouts spent two
hours In searching for the trail which led to
Little Walnut Creek.
Along this stream the most horrible
sights were witnessed. Dead bodies, fright
fully mutilated and naked, were found at
frequent Intervals. The houses wero
pillaged and clothing and household articles
were scattered everywhere. At William
Ogden's five dead bodies, all scalped, lay In
a pool of blood. The two women had been
assaulted and their breasts cut off. A five-year-old
girl had both hands cut oft Fol
lowing tho trail on the hills Gomec ranch
A number of children were gathered here,
who had escaped death by hiding. Their
parents, living in the vicinity, had all been
killed. Six miles further, in the house of
Felix Marquez, five dead bodies wera found.
Mrs. Marquez and her seven-year-old daugh
ter had both suffered at the bands of the
Indians before being killed. The bodies
were slashed with knives and presented a
sickening spectacle. From here, the party
Eroceeded on a fifteen hours' ride eastward,
ito the Finos Mountains, without food or
sleep, but without overtaking the redskins.
By tills time all but six or seven ot the
posse were exhausted and the horses dis
abled. A telegram was sent to General Brad
ley, asking for fresh horses, but he bad none.
Three troop were sent out to take up the
trail where the citizens had left It The cit
izens who followed the Indians must have
been very close on them, and eight dead and
three live horses and one mule were left by
the Indians along the trail, all showingsigns
of being worn out The troops proceeded
on the trail, but the enemy was, by this time,
too far In ad ance and the chase was given
on the return trail the dead were brought
In In wagons. Tho authorities claim there
are only 13. Indians off the reservation, but
It is believed there are a good many more
Up to this time tho only fight between'
the troops and the Indians was brought on
by tho Indians attacking Captain Smith's
command while at Devil Creek.
Two ot tho men, a troojicrand an Indian
scout were wounded and two horses killed.
The wounded scout Is said to be a son ot
Chief Soco. The Indians era beaten back,
but they managed to carry oft everything
with them except a quantity of Buffalo meat
After the fight the Indians went on to Stal
worth's ranch, on which they mado an at
tack, but wero driven off after wounding
