THE ANARCHIST WOMEN.
They Will Murdar Their Children and
Kill Themselves, if Their Hus
band Are Hanged.
We don't expect to sell all
the Fall Overcoats and Fall
Suits that are worn in Ohio
this season, nor yet all that
are worn in Springfield, but
we do expect to sell a very big
proportion, and warned by ex
perience we expect that pro
portion to be bigger than ever
before. We have prepared
for it on that basis ; and we
do know that what we sell,
from the highest to the lowest
price, will be one profit
cheaper, quality for quality,
than will be sold anywhere
else in this market.
As to Fall H ats.
The Puritans who settled
in this country were noted for
their steeple crown hats. The
phrase, "shoot the hat," per
haps, originated among the
Indians, who, after they
scalped the heads that wore
those hats, used them for tar
gets. Hats run rather to
mall brims than steeple
crowns this fall, but, brims or
crowns, we have every style
m the market, all grades and
different prices, with the whole
scale lower than you can buy
the same article for elsewhere.

Cross ties were piled on the track, but En

The Link that Itrought In o. t - Aaua.e

Conductor John Freed and Baggageman
CapL Pindar are two of the best known
railroad men that run Into this cit). They
run between here and Sandusky, and they
has a slight mishap at Tiffin the other night
as they were coming south on "passenger
No. one." It was not expected that the
news would reach here as quickly as they
did. but a special brought it in, and here
"All aboard," shouted Conductor Freed
to the people and the engineer. John Leo
nard has his hand on the throttle of the o'd
reliable 129. But just then Captain Pin
dar, who was standing in the car door, dis
covered that the link between the "tender"
and the express car had broken. The train
stot d still, and the conductor as quick as a
tiv!i knew what the trouble was and or
dered a new link.
"Hain't got another on the train," replied
"Well, never mind," said the conductor,
after a moment's reflection, "run into the
lunch counter and bring out some saugage
links and a cornbeef sandwich- I guess
they will hold till we get to Springfield."

This evening Bice's "Evangeline" will
be presented at the Grand opera house, and
the prospects are that it will be greettd b)
a large audience. Last week "Evange
line" was pla)ed at Columbus and the
Journal thus speaks of it.
"The beautiful and entertaining extrava
anza, 'Evangeline,' has again scored a
suctessln this city, being presented to a
large and thoroughly appreciative audience
at the Metropolitan last night. Evan
geline is just the same in ail its char
acters as of old. The lines are changtsl
but little, the stage business Is almost
identical with that of previous )ears
Many of the humorous bits might be classed
as stale, and yet it is doubtful If a more in
tereetlng burlesque could be conceived,
and it is certain that the Metropo.itan has
not dismissed an audience in a long tune
that more thoroughly enjo)ed tlr p. r
foraiance. There have been man) new
members added to the musical cor,), and
this proved one of the most delightful por
tions of the evening's entertainment. Few
pla)s have ever been produced terethat
were" costumed more elaborate!) or vith
better taste, and the stige settings al-io
added greatly to the beaatiful effect "
