Tbe lientli of Cleopatra.
The story that Cleopatra killed her
self by allowing an asp to bite her has
long been believed, but probably has
no better historical liasis than the fan
ciful imagination of a gossipy Roman
historian. For some time before her
death she made careful preparations
for that event and tried many differ
ent kinds of poisons on her unfortu
nate slaves to see which would pro
duce death with the least apparent
agony. She probably died by one of
these poisons, for she was as adept in
such matters as any of the Borgias.
No asp was found in her room, and
the wound on her breast supposed to
have leen that of its bito probably
had another origin, for her whole
lody was covered with bruises, where
she, in Egyptian fasliion, had struck
herself with her fists and torn her
flesh with her nails in her grief for
the loss of Antony. St. Louis iJlobe

There are times when "silence is
golden " but women have the repu
tation of always ignoring this fact.
A minister's wife tells a good story
J at her own expense which illustrates
man's incredulity of her ability to
I keep her mouth shut under any con
J sideration. Her husband was recov-
ering from a serious illness. The day
; when the worst was over the doctor
smiled, with the remark that all he
needed was quiet and spoke of a pow
der which he would leave. Rising to
go, the wife reminded him of the
powder "to keep her husband quiet,"
when to her amusement the doctor
turned, and looking her in the face
said : "The powder was not for your
husband, but for you. He will be
quiet enough if he only gets the
chance. " Exchange.

In spite of the miserable weather our opening last Saturday
proved a marvelous success; everyone seemed delighted with the new
store, the new styles, and of course our always existing Low Prices
It was equally gratifying to us to again greet our many friends and note so many who had actually
inconvenienced themselves in order to favor us by awaiting the opening of our New Clothing
Store. The only regret we have is that we were unable to serve all owing to the big rush. We
have therefore decided to continue the
in order that everyone may have an equal opportunity to snpply themselves with a handsome
spring outfit at a nominal cost.
