robbed of his liberty.
He must have lilierty no mat

Anil in the exereise of that lil

pair of shoes every well let's
sav. everv once in a while. No
matter how jood the shoes, they
will wear out often, too.
There's only one thin-; to do.
Buy the best shoes you can fet,
pay a fair price for. them, thus
making sure of the iiiality. and
then let the boy do the rest.
We believe we have :i better
stock of boys' shoes than any
other shoe store iti town. We
believe we own them as cheaply
as anyone can, and wc are willing
to part with them at a small

Mrs. Marv A. uinn, of this eitv
whose husband. Engineer Thomas t'
ijninn. was one of the six victims of
the recent wreck on the Hock Islam
road near Oxford, Iowa, has brought
suit in the district court at Davenpor
for f."U,(KU iamares against the C
B. I. & 1. Kailwav rompanv. Mrs
lOuiun has retained C W. Neal as her
attorney. The etition states that
Enirineer Ouinn. who was 40 years of
a"e, was kiiieit on tiie nitii oi &cpi
that he was stronjr and healthy
eapaldo oi earninir no per monin
and with a lonr expeetanev of life
and hence the damage to his estate is

Ihe petition is drawn in lour sepa

freight runninir from Valley Junction
to Davenport, Iowa, and beyond. an
that on the niirht of his death bis e"
srine collided with the enirine of the

under teleirraphic orders, that the
ther train had no right tipou the
tra-k, that (uinn did not know it was
there, but believed, and had a riirht
to lelieve, that the track was clear
The first count charges the accident
to the ncirbsrence of Dunn in
not havinir sidetracked his train for
(uitiu'.t train to pass; the secom
count charires it to a mixinir ui of
itd-rs. the third places it upon the
railroad company for not providing
