These arc essential in dress goods. You don't have much
use most ladies don't for last year's styles.
Out-of-fashion patterns are not much sought af

Dress fabrics have never been so low as now in 30 years. We
bought at the low prices, and the big cases filled
with these goods are arriving daily, and hand

During the past week one ot
tne greatest cuts ia freight
mauo on i tie Hock Isl
and in recent years was con
summated. The cat took effect May
10, and was the result of cuts made
by nearly all roads running into
Chicago. The cut only effects freight
snipped to any point west of Chi
cago, and from Rock Island the rate
is as follows:
The first-class rate from Rock Isl
and to Conncil Blnffs and Omaha in
the west was formerly 57 cents, and
the cut now pats it at 15 cents. On
the second, third and fourth classes
the rates were formerly 41, 32 and 26
cents, respectively. The cut makes
those three classes 10 cents each.
The rate from Rock Island to Kansas
City, St. Joe, Atchison and Leaven
worth in the southwest was 55 cents
first class, and 4 82 and 25 cents
second, third and fourth classes.
The cut makes them 15 cents first
class, and 10 cents for the other
lb roe classes.
Bpee!al Rate, on I.amber.
Special rates have been made on
car loads of lumber. To points in the
southwest mentioned above, a cut has
necn made from 13 to 8 cents, and to
western points, mentioned above,
from 111 to fij cents. .
The C" M. & St. P. and U.a C r
& N. have also made slashes, and the
Illinois Central and Chicago & Great
Western have boon compelled to fol
low suit. The reasons for maV-in.r
this cut is supposed to be a slap at
the Missouri Pacific, which is accused
of doing underhand business.

Marie Vandenrennet Asaaoltd by Leopold
Mrs. Marie Vandervennet, residing
at 1846 Tenth street, Moline, was
most brutally assaulted by Leopold
De Pausemakcr last night. Mrs.
Vandervcnnet's husband is an em
ploye of Dimock, Gould & Co'3 mills,
and works nights. Last night he
went to work as usual, and it was
sometime between 10 and 12 o'clock
that the brutal assault was made.
At the latter hour one of Mrs. Van
dervennefs neighbors heard groans
in the yard, and running over found
the woman lying in the yard under a
window with a rope twisted thrice
around her neck and five bad gashes
in her head, one in the forehead, one
on the top and three on the back of
The police were notified at once,
and the victim taken to the station,
when Dr. Morgan was summoned
and dressed the injuries. When her
husband arrived. Mrs. Vandervennet
told him that De Pausemaker had
assaulted her with a flat iron,
and had then tied the rope
around her neck. De Pausemakcr
was afterward arrested and given a
preliminary hearing this morning,
and bound over to the circuit court
in 1533 bands.
The Cum of the Aiman't,
It is thought that De Pausemaker
became enamored ot the woman,
and that this was the cause of the
deadly assault. Dr. Morgan, the at
tending physician, has hojH's of her
recovery, providing inflammation
does not set in.

ceiving the contract from the Kock

dergone many reverses by death and
depression, and it was April 28 last

prietor, got things ready to go ahead.
Since that time the Kock Island wag

beauties. They are numbered 2
