B)e Jewelry Story
We don't show you an old pattern in jewelry or watches,
or rings or anything. Wtwn you hear of bargains in jew
elry, read between the lines "aged." Old style jewelry,
stale as the ice cream from last night's dinner table. If
you don't know the age of the style when you buy. you'll
find out soon enough, and then a disappointment. People
don't want old patterns in jewelry and silver.
Think of a school of dolphins and gold fish, a collec
tion of jewels, peacock's and palms in a stream of rose wa
ter catching the waning glow of the sinking sun, on a
summer's day and you have a hint of the beauty of some
of the styles which we show in our new store.
If you have not seen it, you have a sensation coming.

Council Believes Vertical
Pump Out of Question.
PRICE FOR MACHINE HIGH
Indication That There Will be Some
Delay in Making a Selection
May Have to Build.
Some of the aldermen are beginning
t think that the council is up against
a combine as far as the vertical pump
is concerned. If one cannot be pur
chased cheaper than is indicated by
the bids now before the body, that
class of machine is out of the ques
tion. However, there are a number, if
not a majority, who prefer a vertical
pump to the horizontal. And on ac
count of the few manufacturers making
this machine it seems almost impossi
ble to get anything that is independent
of the alleged combination.
While at times there has been a dis
position to equip the waterworks plan:
as soon as possible with the new pump,
since the aldermen have become in
volved in the actiml task of picking out
a machine, they have come to believe
that little is to be gained at present by
haste in making the selection. With
the vertical out of the running, the fa
vorites seem to be the Holly, manu
factured by the Snow company, and
the Allis Chalmers machine. The bids
on these pumps were lower than the
others on the one that is adapted to
the needs of the city.
W ill Have ( llnihl.
If the pumps now in operation are to
be kept, there will have to be addi
tional room at the plant for the pump,
and it now seems probable that such
is the case. Definite decision will be
BULLETS MINGLED WITH
MISSILES IN A FIGHT
Two Men and One Woman Engage in
Battle on Eighteenth Street About
Midnight No Injuries.
"A desperate fight, in which two men
and a woman were engaged, occurred
last night about midnight on Eigh
teenth street, just below Second ave
nue. The three participants came from
the east alley between First and Sec
ond avenues, and engaged in the scuf
lle on Eighteenth street, throwing
bricks, pieces of wood, and other handy
missiles at each other. They were in
dulging in considerable loud talking
and the two men were exceedingly
bitter in their denunciations of each
other. After a fight lasting some min
utes without interference, one of the
men took to his heels, and as he went
the other fired a revolver at him. The
bullet apparently missed the mark, as
the runner continued. The other man
and woman disappeared a minute later.
