Inquired for the small Harold, was told
that he was well and was, in fact, at that
mon.ent sleeping in his carriage at the shop
entrance, his mother having brought him

"AVhat a heartless thing to do!" ex-
clain ed the other, "this very cold day.

The words of her friend had aroused her
maternal fears, and she, too, had started

released the friend from the unpleasant
accusation by disowning the babv m her

The late Count de Xieuwerkerke was
one of the la.-t survivors of the brilliant
court of Xtpoloou III. Iu those days he

ami entering the room found the princj'ss

The Oldest Iron Work.
In England, perhaps, the oldest existing I
works in iron are binges todoors, strengtn-
ening bars, bandies, escutcheons, lock
Dlates and the like. Even the nails were
things of beauty. Abroad tbe massive
doors of the C athedral or otre Uame de
Paris offer a wonderful example of early
iron work. Probably designed in tbe
twelfth centurv, the doors are nearly con
cealed with fieir decoration of trees and
birds, dragons and other grotesque leings.
The door in Sc. George's chapel, VS indsor,
is of about the same date. Chamber'
Kalniia, tbe botanical uame of the laurel,

he fell in love with a widow at Swedes
borough, N. J-, so that hbj travels there
after were mostly con fined to and from
her residence. Philadelphia Ledger.
The proper, most satisfactory and convincing way to form a
correct conclusion as to value is by comparison, It is im
possible to judge from newspaper quotations. For this rea
son we ask you to COMPARE our line of $4.35 Mens Suits
others advertise at $4.45; our line of $5.00 Mens Suits with
those others advertise at $7.50; our line of $6.50 Men's Suits
with those others advertise at $10.00; our line of $9.90 Men's
Suits with those others advertise at $13.50. COMPARISON
TELLS THE TALE.
If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
other dealer, don't buy. All we ask that you compare, nothing can be fairer.
