he h&ngS his head so that lie has to curl
up the end f his trunk to keep it off the

Here there came a strange pause, and
with a pencil s ic tapped idly on a light
piece of board which she had taken from
her desk and was holding ln-fore the trans

the eavesdropper sympathetically; but the
pretty girl spoke again, with a laugh:
"I don't believe it, for I heard"
Then she legan tapping on the board

what I say, and they do say that those
girls in the central office listen to the con

this method of conversing by telephone.

A Cry Tli at Awoke Lament.
It was my pri- ilege, never to lie forgot
ten, to be shown as vividly as in a mirror
a glimpse of Washington on the morning
after Lincoln's assassination; in the graph
ic, burning narr Hive of one who at dawn
took up his stat on at a street corner, a
block or two from tile house where Lin
coln lay. The whole city, he said, was
under such a strange and awful spell of
silence t hat it ni ght have been the dawil
of the great last Dies Ira-, with mankind
crouching for sentence before its Judge,
There was nosui 1 f wheels or traffic;
do uplifting of any human voice; footsteps
moved with that faltering lightness they
know in the chamber of the dead. At the
long last there came a muffled tramp
tramp tramp very step of winch seemed
to tread down men's hearts. Among its
guardian soldiery, wrapped in the flag,
Lincoln's body was borne along, and still
that awful, lowering silence; no breath;
no cry. And suddenly one voice a man's
voice, with a wail in it of wrenching agony,
cried so loud ani so clear that it seemed
the cry rung out to the confines of the
world "Dead: Dead And the American
flag around him ! God! God!"
And with that cry it seemed the city
awoke from its frozen silence, and was
vocal with the sound of one vast lament.

COMPARISON Tells the
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

If the quality, fit, workmanship and trimming is not better and the price lower than that of any
