- la consequence of the late fire of the
large wholesale clothing bouse that re
cently burned, over $185,000 worth of
men's and boys' fine clothing, bats, and
otter goods have been saved and removed
to the large building known as Cutter
block, notthet corner Second and Brady
stree's, Davenport. The building has
been closed for one week to arrange for
this great fire insurance sale, and th s
great fire insurance sale will commence
on Thursday Nov. 5. at 9 a. rt. Every
thing will be sold at retail 50 percent less
than the actual cost of manufacture. As
this slock must be sold tin 10 days, every
thing will go rapidly. The appraiser for
the insurance company, rfter carefully
e r nnining the- stock of clothing, con
cluded it was not so badly damaged as
claimed by the assured manufacturers,
and. failing to agree ss to the actual loss,
they were forced to take the same and
turn it into money. Consequently tbe
goods must be sold at once in order to
make a final settlement.

nary bargains that will be offered, and
bear in mind that there are over 10,000

Rellly's musical comedy, 'The Broom

best German dialect comedies, and, like all
similar plays, has the artistic incongruity
which makes the characters talk broken
Eng'ish, although the plot is laid in Ger
many and the actors are supposed to talk
German. -. Mr. Reilly has some very
catchy songs which, interpolated into the
play, makes it more pleasing. Mr.
Reilly as a stage German comedian is a
second Fritz Emmett.
