Georgs Washington Tells m, Story.
"I once rode a mile in less than forty-five
seconds on a hand sled," said G. W. Blisa
at the drummers' experience meeting in
the corridors of the LindelL
His name is George Washington,"
murmured the chairman sot to voce, and
Mr. Bliss bowed and proceeded.
I was born and raised in New Hamp
shire, where the farmer plants his corn in
the side of the hills with a shotgun.
There is great coasting in that state, such
as would make a professional toboggan Lt
take out an accident policy before tack

where I first became familiar with the
rule of three was a mountain with a side
so stecD that few cared to climb it. In the
winter of 1S6S we had a very heavy fall of
snow; then a sleet and a freeze. The re
sult was that the mountain was like a
solid sheet of ice set up at an angle of 35
clegs. It was half a mile to the top, and
at its base was a level sheet of frozen
snow. I had to cross the mountain on my
way to school, making a circtfitous and
easy descent. One morning 1 was delayed
and heard the bell ring just as I reached
the top. I knew that to be late meant a
reprimand, if not worse, ana l resoivea to
be on time.
I beaded my hand sled, lay down upon
it, and the next instant 1 was shooting
down that slippery sheet of glass like a
meteor. The fire flew up from tne sled
runners as though I were riding over burn
ing lava, and the speed was so terrific that
it seemed as it the wind would tear my
clothes off. I simply shut my eyes, ducked
my head and held on like grim death. The
momentum was so great that I was car
ried half a mile across the level country at
the base of the mountain, got reprimanded
at school for being late, and whipped at
home for being a reckless dunce." St.

NOT HOW CHEAP BUT HOW GOOD!
Nowadays parents buying Boys' Clothing make an effort to get good goods not cheap, shoddy stuff.
Shoddy goods are high at a low price; a good article at a low price is what you want, and that is just what the
Are now prepared to show you. We have always made it a special feature to carry good goods only, and
while we have been successful in this direction we have never been in a position to show such an exceedingly
choice, perfect-fitting and superior made and trimmed line of
as at present. An exceptionally choice line of novelties, positively a handsomer and larger line than ever at
correct prices, in fact better made, better trimmed and better fitting goods at lower price than you would
have to pay for infearior goods elsewhere.
Comparison is convincing. May we have an opportunity of satisfying you as to the truthfulness of the
