"To Economize is to Save, to Save
i3 to Become Rich."
The season now passing,
notwithstanding its draw
backs, has been with us
This we attribute to the
fact that we have been
giving our customers the
greatest bargains possibly
obtainable, thereby enab
ling them to save money
upon every purchase.
We now consider our
selves between Seasons,
and feel it incumbent upon
us to again thank our pa
trons for their most gener
our response to the spe
cial sales inaugurated by
us, and assure them of our
most earnest appreciation.
We fully understand that
to sell unsatisfactory mer
chandise is to "sell" the
customer, hence the cardi
nal principle of our busi
ness: "Whatever you buy
of us not proving entirely
satisfactory, return it at
once and we will cheer
fully refund the price
While many of our cus
tomers are leaving and
have left the city for the
summer, there are thou
sands who have not, and
do not intend leaving; be
ing satisfied with "the city
of magnificent distances,"
with its beautiful parks, its
shaded streets and easily
accessible resorts up and
down the lovely Potomac.
To those who have left we
suggest, possibly unneces
sarily, remember our thor
oughly organized and
"Mail Order Department,"
through which we give you
the same attention as
though you were purchas
ing in person. To those
who have not, and do not
anticipate leaving, we
would say : There is in
every branch of business
many lines of goods which
must be sold in August,
and as a house carrying no
poods over from one sea
son to another must close
out these lines while in
season, we shall now de
vote our entire attention
to such lines.
These goods we shall
bring forward from time to
time, as the occasion de
mands, and mark them at
such prices as will com
mend themselves to the
public as exceptionally
good values in every sense
of the word. Meanwhile,
all the "Odd Lines," which
were reduced, and not en
tirely disposed of, will be
held at the prices previous
ly advertised, and are well
worthy the attention of the
entire trade as genuine
As an inducement to the
gentlemen we have to-day
decided to close out out
Men's Cambric Dress and Night
These Shirts are recom
mended to the fine trade as
not only the lightest and
coolest, but the most dura
ble and best Shirt for sum

ket. Mon's Cambric Dross Shirts,
Reduced from SI to 75o each.

for tlio genoial elections In uveiy way In
which It can bo made cfi'eetlvo.
The Tory election agent for Chelsea,
the boiough which Sir Charles icpte
soiiU, has collected what Is believed to
bo tho true stoiy of tho scandalous ad
ventiue, and has published It In pamph
let form, This pamphlet has been
mailed to eveiyone of Sir Charles'
reglsti led constituents, and copids have
been scattered lirouluaBt upon the streets
of Chelsea. This Is the first actual pub
lication of the scandal In Hugliind, and
It does not inlncc m.itteis In the least,
but publMios names, dites and locali
ties without lererve.
If tho allegations weie untitle, either
Sir Charles Dllke, Mrs. Orawfoul or
her husband would have ample gi omuls
for pioceedlugs, both eihnlnal and
civil, against the publMior. Tho elec
tion agent who has published tho pam
phlet pleads "It nth and justlllcitlou."
Ho says that, llutly, tho charges me
