This gigantic combine of which we form a part and representing SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS ($7,000,000) in Dry Goods, has only
been in existence going on two years, and was formed NOl for the purpose of maintaining or advancing prices, but for the purpose of
forcing the prices DOWN and securing the utmost advantages that are possible direct from the manufacturers boih at home and abroad,
It does away with the system of paying profits to middlemen and deals directly with first hands.

The drill of the Rodman llilles last
nitrht was a verv hamw

sentation of two handsome tokens of
esteem from the company to two of
its members. After the regular drill
had been gone through with, Capt.
II. A. McDonald in a short speech on
behalf of the company, presented
Lieut. !. J. Kamskill. who has just
become a bfnedict, with a beautiful
silver water service. Mr. llamskill.
though taken by surprise, responded
with a few remarks, expressing his
sincere gratification for the kind re
membrance. The set was handsome

scription: Presented to Lieut. C.

following this. Capt. H. A. McDonald
again stepped forward and presented
Sergeant James Johnston, the oldest
member of the company, with a
handsome gold watch and chain. Mr.
Johnston also responded warmly and
prizes the handsome compliment very
highly. In addition to being the
veteran member of Co. A, Mr. John
ston is one of the oldest, if not the
oldest, militiaman in the state.
Indoor Base Ball.
There was a general good feeling
among the members of the company,
and after the presentations there was
a game of indoor base ball that was
quite interesting, which was wit
nessed bv a large number of spectators.

served a full house, and would have
undoubtedly met with a better re
ception under other circumstances.
The audience which witnessed it,
however, went away thoroughly
pleased. It is a powerful drama,
well staged and well presented by
Mr. Sanford's clever company. Jack
Merideth, an adopted son of a fisher
man of Cornwall, England, is in love
with the beautiful Dorothy Prescott.
The course of their love runs smooth
until Baronet Edward Vanburg be
comes infatuated with Dorothy and
contrives to bring about Jack's de
struction. His assistant in this ne
farious work is Ciro Panitza, a vaga
bond Greek, who becomes one of the
strongest characters in the play.
Vanberg ingeniously plots to fasten
the guilt of the murder of Charles
Prescott, Dorothy's brother, upon
Jack Merideth, and at the same time
stir up in Jack's breast a suspicion
of Dorothy's faithfulness. In the
former purpose he fails, as Jack is
acquitted by a jury; but in the latter
he is successful

The London chamber of arbitration
appears to be well established and work
ing successfully along the lines laid
down bv the founders. Its proceedings
in a case heard before it two weeks ago
are described thus: "The arbitrator was
one of the ablest men in the city of Lou
don: the hearing occupied two hours;
tha whole of the fees amounted to 4
guineas, and the case would certainlj
have occupied four days in hearing in
court of law."
