the yellow grain Wjond tte reach of
danger from autumn's white mantle.
Fred Ward visited his country farm the
other day, and be reports corn hanging

Mr. Ward also reports peaches and all
fruits in good yie d. The Rack Island

as Urge and as delicious as the Califor

Ellis taking; moacy orders from the sime,
one for 565 53 and the other for S2 50,

Ellis' name and int tbe postoffice ile

This afternoon a telegram came from
tbe Union stock yirdt, Chicago, signed

assurance: "I will write you tomorrow.
Two months ago tbe same man stole

On Saturday night Mr. and Mrs. Frank
Guff, of South Rrck Islard, were pleas

anniversary of th ir marrisge, by about 40
couples of their f -lends who assembled at
a neighbor's and descended upon them in
a body, not forge ting to take along two
elegant chairs which were presented to
Mr. Gof? and wife in a few well chosen
remarks. After n feeling response by tbe
recipients nf the presents, the visitors
were royally entertained and were soon
making merry dancing on a nicely ilium
inated platform until 11 o'clock when a
bountiful supper was served which was a
compliment to the host and hostess.
Shortly after the guests departed carrying
with thtm lastiDg recollections of one of

That picturesque high class drama, "A
Royal Pass," with George C. Staley es the
star, is down for next Friday evening at
Harper's theatre. This attraction should
command the attention of our theatre'
gcingjpublic. X.t. Staley stands without
a rival as a German dia'ect comedian and
sweet sieger. Ti e play has been entirely
revised since latt season and a large
amount of enjoyable comedy has been
added. There a e numerous new songs,
one of which, called -Little Rogue's
Asleep," as sung by Mr. Staley. is creat
ing a sensation. Manager Parker has
surrounded Mr. Staley with a fine com.

Rev. F. E. Jferrill, late of Dwight,
111., tbe new pa j tor of the First M. E
church, preached his first sermon yester
day morning and made a Rood impression
upon the congrejtion. He is a youns:
man, his sermon are scholarly and his
delivery eloquent. Hie introductory
sermon was devoted to the reciprocal re
lations between pastor and people, and
how greatly the necessity of the church
depended upon the co-operation ana

Electric cr 40, wilh Frank Brehford
motorman,, collided with a buggy at the
intersection of Fourth avenue and Four
teenth street at about 9:15 last night.
Tbe buggy and horso attached belonged
to W. C. Maucker.
A. Carver, of Hannibal. Mo., a C. B.
& Q. switchman who had eneaeed it for
the afternoon. Carver bad eviaenlly
exceeJed tte bounds of discretion in
providing himself with the refreshing am
oer fluid durinz the dty and was appar
ently not familiar with his bearings when
the car s ruck him. At anv rate ihe horse
was at a standstill with the buggy directly
on the tries. Ths colliding
convrg up ?ourlh avenue and Motorman
Brelsford not only rang his gong furiously
but screamed at the occupant of the
buagy. at tbe same time shutting oft bis
current and reversing his motor. The
car struck the rig with much less forca
than it would otherwise, hut f!rwr
was thrown out or attempted to jump and
whs thrown down. The back wheels of
the buggy wtre smashed, but otherwise
the tig e.-caped unharmed. Carver wan
rarried into C J. Long's residence near
ty and later conveyed by Capt. Long of
the police, on a stretcher to the Hofjl
Gordon on Market square. Thtre Dr.
Ludewig examined the injured man and
found no bones broken,and a few bruises
the extent of the injuries.
People in the neighborhood state that
the horse and buggy stood at the corner
of Fourteenth street and Fourth avenue,
with tha mm asleep on the seat for fully
five minutes before the car approached,
and probably the horse wandered off and
got directly on the track when it stopped.
Moterman Brelsford, who has tbe repu
ta:ion of being one of the most expert
men on the system, by his promptness
and control of the motor, doubtless saved
the man's life.
Richard Stanton, an old mn over 60
years of age, rtsiding at 821 Second ave
nue, fell while attempting to alight from
an eltctric car on Second avenue between
Nineth and Tenth s'-reets on Saturday
cytnin ai.d was picked up
and taken to hU home near by. He was
found t.ot to be etriously ii jured though
he received a severe bruise on the right
8de of the bend ana was badly shaken up.
John Ileidcrnann, residing on Aiken
street, was thrown from his wagon by his
team which took fright at an ilectric car
and ran away on Saturday evening. Mr.
Heidemtnn sustained a compound frac

by Dr. Piummer and is now getting along

Etlw jide & Walsh commenced tbis
afternoon to remove the snd from the
pavement from Twentieth street east on
Fourth avenue. When the esnd is taken
off that intersection at Twenty-third
street and Fifth avenue it will reveal a
job of patchwork which will likely be as
much of an eye-sore to the contractors as
to other citizens having pride in the
appearance of things. I; is surprising
that in the failure of Inspector L!oyd to
properly attend to it the contractors
should have neglected observing some
decree of uniformity in the paving of tbe
space between the tracks.

13 FAST APPROACHING THE END.
The heavy work on our new front is nearly completed and the large
plate glass are now in transit. Our two story addition in the rear reach
ing to the alley is np ready to receive the roof and everything now points
to a speedy completion of the work. Tne only way we know of to make
business reallively while things ere so torn up, is to name still lower
prices as an offset to any slight inconvenience to customers. We quote:
500 yards stripe wool shirting flannel 1 2Hc a yard-
One case new standard prints, choice styles 43
Double faced Gninea hen flannel, a new fabric for children's underwear,
ladies' skirts and other uses at 14c a yard.
New choice styles, novelties in cretonne, under price, 10c a yard
Double fold cheviots at 8Kc a yard, worth 1254.
A lot of new gros grain ribbons bought as a big drive, we sell No- 4 at
5c, No- 5 at 6c, No. 7 at 7c, No. 9 at 9o a yard.
A great many other special bargains will be placed on sale during the
