A popular amusement in social
circles now is for a young man to
wager with a pretty girl that
her sleeve is larger round than

Yes, Mr. Union. Chief Sexton would
rather be a janitor all his life and lie
an American, than to be any titled
officer that any foreign country can
rod nee. There is no reflection on
any of the distinguished warriors of
the old country in this. Chief Sex
ton's position is merely that'he wonld
rather lie an American than to be a
king. That's all.
Chief Sexton is not ashamed of
having at one time discharged the
dutie of janitor at fae city building
while connected with the police de
partment, or having followed any
other pursuit of houenl toil, but be
caune of having been thus employed

from wedcn to America hy the
World' fair. Dr. von Bergen was
C receded here by his reputation of
ring the most popular lecturer in
Sweden, and having the bost mas
tery of Swedish language of any liv
ing man. The lecture fully met all
expectations. It was introductory
to a scries or 12 lectures, the sub
jects and days of which will lie made
known in the columns of Tna Aunts
in due time.
A far as Mr. Sexton is concerned,
it may be said that while he is proud
of his position as chief of the police
force, he will be perfectly willing to
lav aside the duties cheerfullv when
the people so will, and with no
malice or illwill toward bis succes
sor, whoever he mav be, and in such
an event he will experience no diffi
culty in earning fully as much as he
is making now, nor will be resort to
any occupation with the sole end and
aim of trumping up charges against
the operation of the department un
der his successor.
The visor with which the Union
seeks to bring to justice the individ
ual who has been stealing one of its
papers from a 1 wcntietb street ou.i
ness house is something remarkable,
its offer of reward for the curiosity
it seeks to capture, appearing again
this morning. The inion is dis
playing more energy on this subject
than it was ever known to for tbc
accomplishment of any purpose he-
fore, but tbe end seems to -justify
the means. Tbe public will await

affairs in a very peculiar condition,
and since then a number of very
shady transactions on tbe part of the
late engineer have come to light, one
being the disposition of a steam pump
belonging to the company to another
Hock jsiana establishment, which
supposed It was buying the machine
from the company direct, whereas
the engineer had spirited it away, as
it were. The Browing company sent

Street Superintendent Ward dis
criminating against a pensioner la
the person of Robert Hurd in the en
gaging of hie street force, is all
stuff and nonsense. Mr. Ward did
ot ret nee Mr. , Hard work on the
ground of his being a pensioner.
When he applied. Mr. Ward told him
ho eonld only use a few men and he
was very desirooa of giving work to
those who were most needy, owing
to the hard times. He merely men
tioned to Mr. Hurd the fact that he
had a pension to depend upon, while
others, in other way too, more
needy, had not, and told htm he
thought it his duty to engage those
first who were more nearly destitute.

The men's and boys' shoes will soon join our clothing stock. Having decided to reunite the
men s and boys' shoes with the clothing stock, and not having sufficient room for all, we are sell
ing out our entire stock of ladies' and misses shoes less rhe following reductions: Some at one
fourth off, some at one-third off , some at one-half off, and some at less than one-half off.
It's a pity to sacrifice our fine stock of Ladies' Shoes, particularly when this has been one of
our most successful departments, but being unable to seenre more store room it's the only re
course. With the big reductions they are moving fast. It's a chance in a life time. Don't miss it.
