And all About a Mustache at
THE MOLINE BARBER CASE AGAIN,
A New York Paper Takes it for a Text and
Talks About how Much may be Involved
in a Case Growing out f that Hirsute
Adorament of the Upper I.lp.
A short time ago Rudolph Oberlander
bad his mustache trimmed at the Peal
house barber shop in Moline. When he
went out into the hotel, his frietda
merely for a l'oke guyed him to such an
extent that he became enraged and sued
the barber for f 50 damages for maltreat
ing plaintiff's muBtache with a pair of
shears. There was probably no ground
for the suit, as the i-arber is an acknowl
edged adept at his art and learned bis
trade under the tutorship of that expert
in tonsorial decor .tion, Aid C E. Evans,
of this city. The suit was afterward dis
missed, but the report of it has found i's
way to New York, though the amount
money involved grew to $5,000 on the
way, and Oberlander'a mustache has the
honor of receiving editorial notice in the
New York World. The World says:

Special Sale of Dress Goods,
In addition to our recent great mark down on all
styles and quantities of dress goods, we offer the fol
lowing for this week, 6 days, only six. With every
dress pattern bought at our store -during the week,
amounting to $3 or over, the purchaser will have
the privilege of buying the linings for almost noth
ing. ' - '
HERE IS THE BILL.

2 yards drilling for waist lining, 2 cents - - - - .05

Think of 17 cents for lining and bindings for a
dress, 17 cents for the skirt lining, the waist lining,
the button-hole twist, the sewing silk, the spool cotton,
the braid for a dress.
After reading the above it will scarcely be necess
ary to state, our enthusiasm led us to buy too many
dress goods, more than we have been able to let out.
Hence our determination to nearly give away the lin

overstock down to its normal condition. Early buy
ers will of course find some advantage over those
coming later in the week.
