to start up today as expected, but as
soon as the raw material arrives the
works will 1 e started. This will
doubtless be some time during the

This was a circumstance that made
Chairman Blyth of the Iowa republi

that Mr. llcinz must be a republican,
and he took action accordingly. Mr.
Heinz received, a few day ag-, a
letter suggesting that as the holder
of an important and lucrative federal
appointment, (worth perhaps $2(.n) a
year) he ought to put up about $25
for the benelit of the republican cor
ruption fund with which Iowa is to
be redeemed this fall. Mr. Heinz
has not yet replied to this invitation.
He doesn't mind the money, but he
is smarting under the imputation
that lie is a republican.

Bishop Zardetti. of the diocese of
St. Cloud, who spent Saturday with
Kev. Father Mackin. visited the hos
pital. The mother-house of the
Franciscan sisters is located in this
diocese. Through him it was learned
that the sisters are sent out as mis
sionaries, and that the mot her-liouse
is not supported by the hospitals.
The house ison'y used as a home for
the good women who devote their
lives to the sick. In case t hey should
be taken sick themselves the hospital
must, under the circumstances, be
necessarily self-supporting. The
mother-house is supported by its
own diocese, and with this end in
view the sisters in a few weeks will
again visit the good people of Bock
Island, for assistance, and sincerely
hope to find them as kindly disposed
as before. They not only ask for
money to pay off the debt on the hos
pital, but also for groceries, and also
clothing, for the iinniates of the hos
pital, permission to do this having
been given by Bishop Zarkt-tti and
Bishop Spaulding. The mother su
perior of the order is now at the hos
pital on a short visit, and expresses
herself as well pleased w ith the work
which has been accomplished, but
regrets very much that the financial
condition is such as to prevent the

All of the above goods are strictly perfect, and were neither man
ufactured or imported on contract of sale. The serious money dis
turbances during July and August made it simply impossible for
some purchasers to carry out their contracts, while in -other in
stances the credit of the buyer was doubtful, and the auctioneers
got the benelit of the doubt. We were fortunate enough to be there
during September when these goods were in the auction rooms, as
thousands of pounds of fresh bargains just received last week will
testify; also many tons more of the same kind of bargains are now
in transit and will be on our counters during this week. Some of
the lots are small, others are large. Come in as often as vou can
and get early selections as the goods are opened up.
