Verdict for Lothar Harms
LIGHTNING PLAYED PRANKS
Occupants of Damaged Rooms
The peculiar pranks that lightning
will play was well illustrated in th?
storm Wednesday evening when the J.
Ainsworth home, 9uG Fifteenth stre.'l
was struck. Neighbors on the opio
site side of the street who saw th;
lightning strike say that nails of lire
seemed to fall simultaneously at four
different places on the house. A room
on the east side of the house, occu
pied by Lee Holstein was struck ju-t
above the bed which he occupied an. I
the lightning followed the tin gutt i
tearing off the shingles and plate. In
a room occupied by F. V. Bladel the
plaster was knocked from the wall an i
the room otheiwise damaged, and th-
room occupied by Mr. Aiusworth waS
damaged and the attic was badly tori
uu. The strauee part about it is that
the occupants of the house knew not :-
ing of the danger to which they ha 1
been exposed until the neighbors toll
them and investigation was made oi
the damaged places.

Lovers of cleverly designed cloth -s
owe themselves the nlrasnre of in.
sprctlng the tailor-made two niece out
ing suits that M. fc K. are showing.
The graceful draping of these ga -ments.
together with the originality of
design and cleverness and taste of
fabric patterns, stamp them with thj
marks of quality which invariably dis
tinguish M. & K. clothes. The prices
are $10 to $25.
They are M. & K. values everybody
knows that means better values, nior.'
for the price. M. & K. do not hesitate
to guarantee a positive saving of from
$1 to $5 on each suit.
Outing suits are only one of tlv1
many atractions which are drawing
crowds of clothes buyers M. & K.-warJ.
Many are buying the handsome, high
grade, hand tailored sprint; suits and
with plenty of reason. It is rare in
died, that, any store aside from those
of the larger cities shows such a com
prehensive display of the season's new
est styles and designs. It is safe to
say and to emphasize that no store In
this region offers such a multitude of
economies buying for two big stores
gives M. & K. a great advantage.
it would be surprising to many to
know what a great amount of sumnvr
underwear M. &. K. have already sold
that is. they would be surprised until
they saw the splendid values at 50e.
75c and up to $2.50. Then they woul 1
understand why so many dozens hav
been disposed of already.
The straw hats too are attracting a'
tention. Tliev cost from 50c to $7.51
and cover a remarkable range oi
styles, weaves and different straw te
t tires. It's well to see them early--they'll
be all the go in another week.
The M. & K. plan of guaranteeiir.
patent leathers would, in itself, be su'
iicient to attract much of the men'?
shoe trade. When it is rcmember.l
that M, & K. sell $5 values at $4 and
$0 values at $5 the reason for th
rapidly increasing shoe patronage
M, & K. enjoys an unusual position
in the..apparel world. Their two mot
toes explain it. "A!. & K. Have It!'
and "M. & K. Sell It For Less!"
