public has become more or less famil-
ar with the charges that were to be
brought against the McKinneys with
reference to the alleged cruelty toward
Stella Grady, the peop'e of Aledo were
startled at some of the things laid be
fore the jury as alleged facts that he
expected to be proved. These were
things unbelievable and inconceivable

horrible in the criminal annals, of Il

We feel that an apology is due our many customers for the extreme
late hours at which we were forced to make deliveries Saturday
evening and for any inconvenience which we caused them. 'Tis true
we anticipated a great rush of orders, and for that reason made
what we considered ample provision for handling them, by augment,
ing our already large force with 7 additional clerks, but our greatest
expectations were exceeded, so much so, in fact, that in many cases it
was after 2 o'clock Sunday morning before final deliveries were made.
