Another Bridge for Clinton.
Clinton, Iowa, is to have a new rail
road bridge. The I., I. & I. has bought
a half interest in the Q. from Streator
to Clinton and will send its trains
over this line. The I., I. & I. started to
parallel the Q. from Streator to Clin
ton. The Q. officials, taking a business-like
view of the situation, offered
either a traffic arrangement or a half
interest in the line. The latter prep
osition was accepted. The North
western is running so many trams
over its bridge at Clinton it has been
compelled to give the Q. notice that
the arrangement for the use of the
bridge by that road must terminate.
This makes it necessary for the Q. to
build. W hat connection all this
may have with the Davenport, Rock
Island & North wesiern can only be
guessed, but it is not probable that the
new road will be sat 'shed to stop at
Clinton, giving all its business to the
Special Tax Notice.

AN UNUSUAL SALE OF

We are going to have a quiet little suit sale this week.
Mind you we do not advertise to sell $25 suits for $6.25
or any such tommyrot which every sensible person in
stantly recognizes as "fake" of the first water, but we
are going to offer such bargains as an intelligent merchant
who understands his business can offer to an intelligent
public which is not to be fooled with mere word. We
have arranged to sell out the remaining suits of a number
of lots which have proven so satisfactory and sold so well
that but few of each are left. In view of the fact that we
have already done so well with them and that there are
but a few left anyhow we are going to put on sale these
$18 and $20 Suits and Overcoats at $15
Which is very nearly at cost, but not below. It will not
be necessary for us to loss money on these suits in ord er
ta get rid of them. They are not that sort. The mater

The stove that consumes a large
quantity of fuel, gives little heat
and needs repairing often, is an
One that gives great beat with
small consumption of fuel soon
pay for itself.
We .have a line of the latter
kind of stoves. Every one of

result is perfection.
