AN UNUSUAL SALE OF
SUITS AND OVERCOATS.
We are going to have a quiet little suit sale this week.
Mind you we do not advertise to sell sf2o suits for f. 25
or any such tomuiyrot which every sensible person in
stantly recognizes as "fake" of the tirst water, but wo
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 words. 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. Iu view of the fact that we
have already done so well with them and tint there arc
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 order
to tret rid of them. Thev are not that sort. Tho mater
ials are Cassimeres and Tweeds, Cheviots in fancy weaves,
plain and fancy Worsteds, and your money back if you

TWO LIVES Iff PERIL

GLIDE INTO HCLE IN THE ICE.
Prominent Milan Girls Meet With a Serl
on .Accident While Enjoying Ihem
elvee on Hennepin Canal Last Xlfbt
Three Yoanff Men Go to Their Bea
cne. Milan was in the throt-s of another
sensation last night when the news
spread about the town that two of the
prominent young ladies had fallen
into the Hennepin canal while skat
ing, but the anxiety occasioned by the
lirst report was suoscquently relieved
by the announcement that the parties
had been rescued.
It was a narrow escaje, however,
for Misses Nina Gilruore and Mabie
Heath, who would have probably per
ished but for prompt assistance. , ,
The girls bad just got their skates
on, and arm in arm were gliding over
the smooth surface, when suddenly
they were precipitated into the water,
having skated into a hole made by the
ice harvesters and over which a thin
surface had froen. the perilous char
acter of which could uit be detected
in the darkness.
Cries of help brought willing hands
to the rescue. Martin Weaver jumped
in and grabbed hold of Miss Gil more
and took her safely to shore, while
Lester Kuehl and Bert Miller rescued
In Seven tet of Water.
There is seven feet of water in the
canal at the point where the accident
occurred. The girls went to the bot
tom, but when they emu up. their
clothing not having become saturated
yet, buoyed them until they were
reached by the brave youths who went
to l heir a-Vistance.
This accident should serve at least
one good purpose, and that is in re
quirement by the proper authorities
that parties engaged in cutting ice
plice danger signals at night about
the holes they make in the rivers and
GOOD JOKE ON THE POLICE.
Tale of the Purchaneof a Team of Horsf
at Alnunj. III.
Attaches of the municipal govern
ment are discussing a strategie move
that was successfully executed by
Fire Chief Charles Hastings and by
which the police department was
euchred out ol a tine team of horses
that were billed lor service on the
city ambulan :e. The horses are now
domiciled at the Central engine house.
whilei.be police department continues
casting about for horseflesh on which
to expend the receipts of the recent
bill. The story runs this way: Ser
geaut Wirt has friends iu Albany, 111.,
where lives Dr. Ditvond. who deals in
tine horses. Wirt wrote Dr. Dimond
for a description of his purchasable
team?, reeeiving which he and OHicer
John Sehmid hied theroelves to Al
bany, accompanied by Chief Hast
ings. Tihe police department rep
resentatives were much pleased
with one of the teams, and told
the owner taat undoubtedly he
would make a sale, and returned
to the city to report to Chief Mil
ler and the police committee of
the council. Chief Hastings also fell
in love with the pair of horse?, but did
nt say any thing about them, but im
mediately ealled together the lire and
light committee, which secured the
necessary authority from the council.
There was a trip to Albany by Hast
ings, a veterinarian surgeon and
members of the committee, and the
next day the team was in the Central
houe barn, but the police department
did not tumble until it was too late.

Two important innovations were in
troduced by the state board of pharm

The board adopted a preliminary edu

operation between the state board and
independent organizations, looking to
the prosecution of violators of the

From (illbert to Kant Davenport.
Advices have come from Washing
ton that the petition of the citizens of

name be changed to Eat Davenport,
has been favorably received by the
dcpirtment, and will be acted upon
at an early date. The people of Gil
bert have long desired this change,
and several people of Divenport have
!een interested in the matter as well.
Ultimately Gillert will be a part of
Davenport, and by changicg the nauie
now, the future will be anticipated.
But the strongest reason for desiring
the change is the fact that there is
another GiHert in the state of Iowa,

child, a little boy, with him. His
home is iu Letts, Iowa, and on his way
there he stopped in Muscatine long
enough to have a friend buy some
morphine with which he purposed ex
terminating himself. He told how a
friend of his had been laid out in a
wreck not long since, and how calm
and contented he looked, and he
wished to be at peace like him. The
matter was brought to the attention
of the Muscatine city marshal, who
promptly notiiied the mayor of Letts
by wire of the man's rash design, but
suspectiug this action. Phillips hid
the morphine pills in a woodpile,
where they were found later. The
quick action of the officials foiled the
man iu his purpose.
