To Take Advantage of the
Great Clearing Sale.
Many lots have been
closed out and others
prcatly reduced. We shall
offer some additional
items for Tuesday, the
last day of this sale. Our
prices under ordinary cir
cumstances arc positively
lower than can be found
for the same goods else
where, and at such sale as
advertised, they are in
comparable. It's no trick
to offer an inferior article
at the same price as what
we advertise, as some
dealers have a faculty of
doing and then boast of
their low prices. . It may
1 well to remember that
PWFcs arc named only
wficn The Boston Store
compels such action by
offering such irresistible,
bargains as "appear in
these colums from time
to time, and The Boston
Store is rightly deserving
of your patronage.

room was packed and the spectators re
garded him with anything but friendly
glances. When tbe caxe was called Mc-
Namnra's attorneys moved for a contin
uance, they not having conferred with

reason but leraue af the threatening as

Chicago, Jan. 22. Tbejfe i a bullet hole
in the wall of James MoTinicVs saloon
tt 50 North State street.- There are simi
lar apertures in the skulls of Walter Phipp,
Mrs. James McConnl and Ellen Erick
son. As a consequcAV ttiipp, who did
tbe shooting, is dead, Ellen Erickson is
lying, and Mrs. McC'ormlk is painfully
wounded. Phipp was a 'warilcr in Mc
Cormick's bouse, lie wasp good-looking
roung fellow, and regarded as decent
enough by all who knew him. For a little
while pest be has been unemployed, but it
was through no fault of his own. lie was
i waiter by occuiation and had held good
positions. His last place Was that of a
steward of the Cnion Ijeagne club.
Shot tbe Hired tilrl.
Ellen Erickson, Mrs. McCormick's liirec.
girl, was making the bed in his room on
the third floor of the building above the
saloon. Nolmdy knows what occurred
when Phipp went up to his room. His
motive for the i-hootmg is purely a mat
ter of surmise. Mrs. McCormick, with
her two children, was on the second floor
when it occurred. She, -heard Phipp
tramp heavily up the staim and a minnte
r two later the heard as! fired. That
is all she knows. She ran' mistily up the
flight of stJiirssi'parBtingli rlrora Pbipp's
room and saw Ellen Erickjba lying across
the door with lilood trifkling from a
wound in her bead. She' had no more
:hnn time to take note of the fact when
Phipp ran toward her an fired a shot
which struck her transVersely iu the
mouth. He then shot himfelf dead.
