A B ratal affair.
At the police court yesterday morning
Sylvester L lark was charged with vsg
raucy by Detective Daly. Clarke was sen
tenced to the house of correction for 281
days. He save his nativity as Ireland, his
age as 30, and bis occupation as a foundry
man. He ought to have been sent down
for three m inths. His tramp companion.
Willie Boydson. testified against him, but
did not tell all tbe truth. Had he done so he
would hsvi; told that Clarke had ruined
his young life. Bovdson is a son of . R.

Clarke kept tbe boy begting and took

how to bes, and while he did not beat
him, made the boy afraid of him and wil

Beware of the man who hails from
some foreign city and sells dry goods,
groceries, curtains, hardware and every
thing else you can name. He sells you
tbe goods and some oue else collects the
bills. He quotes you very low prices
snd asks y3U to join bis association for
which he charges a fee. After you join
you can pirchase goods from catalogues
and price list furnished. He is very
smooth, hi mbly polite for which be gets
well paid, but our word for it he is a fi
cousin to tbe lightning rod man and steel
range swindler. Theirs are a kind that
no ordinary purchaser can judge the
quality, tvt must depend solely upon the
honesty of the dealer. Buy of your home
merchant, then if an article is off quality
you know where to go. But despite re
peated warning there are always a new
crowd of Victims as there was fortbe

A little lrl named i.Ue Wilson re
cently fell while playing on tbe steps of
St. Mary's church and sustained injuries
which had every indication of making the
child a permanent cripple. Her parents
bad not tb j means to - provide tbe treat

hearing of the case, generously offered to
insure the best treatment possible and she
took the lhtle girl with her to St Louis
last night where she will be placed in a

The Sioux City Street Railway com
p&ny has een testing a new street car
motor; the invention of A. B. Walker,
the electrician of the road. The experi
ment car has pleased the people greatly
because of its smooth, easy acd quiet op
eration The equipment, ia addition to
the usual motor, says the Journal, in
cludes an electric brake by which the car
can let down any grade at any rate of
speed desired. Its application pro
duced no jerk of the car as is the case in
reyersing tbe current from tbe controll
ing switch, but produced the result easy.
and will atop a car on a grade without
Inconvenience to passengers. The brake
is operated by simply sliding a little rod
wbich is attached to a box on tbe plat
form in front of tbe motorman.
Speaki-g of tbe new eys'em. Mr.
Walker said tbat while points bad been
adopted from various systems, the im
portant features and combinations are all
bis own. He says that a car can be
started so easily tbat a passenger stand
ing without support can hardly tell when
the car begins to move. Tbe speed is
worked up gradually, without spurts or
jarring, and with no danger of bursting
any part of the equipment. Finally, ac
cording to careful tests, tbe ' oior re
quires only 60 to 75 per cent of the power
consumed in operating the Weslinghouse
ana opragtie Cars of the su vnijjUt.
Besides this saving of power, an impor
tant saving in repairs is effected because
of tbe decreased number of pans tht are
liable to get oat of order. The officials
of the company are greatly pleased with
the new motor, and it is possible tbat it
will be adopted, by degrees, at least, as
the regulation equipment for tbe system.

With the Miller Chemical Fire Eogine a

Insurance maycover part of your loss
from fire and water, but not for loss of
time, trade and many articles that money
cannot replace. Protection against fire
requires an extinguisher that will work
instantly, at all times, and tbat requires
do attention whatever, as tbey are apt to
be neglected when not needed. After the
most rigid and extended investigation the
Miller has been adopted by thousands of
the largest corporations in this country.
The names of a few are given in their
phamplets who have them in use. These
pi ints can and will be demonstrated to

vote a few minutes time to investigation.
Mr. S. A. Hitchcock, agent of the
Miller chemical engine, is now in the city
and will call on our business men to ex

also prepared to give all reasonable tests
to prove to tbe skeptically inclined that

to accomplish. Mr. Hitchcock s stay in
