" THE END !"
mr'Summer Clearance Sale
AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY !
The question naturally arises in the minds of our patrons while
visiting this great sale: "Why is it that HALE BROS, are sacri
ficing their goods in such a manner ?" The casual observer, as he
or she moves through the different departments of the House, and
finds the prices on goods marked down 25. 35, and, in some
instances, 50 per cent., remarks : " HALE BBOS. must want coin
badly to make such enormous sacrifices." True, we want the coin,
! but did you ever know of an individual or firm to fail who bought
and sold exclusively for CASH
[While our patrons are enthusiastic over their purchases, and our
competitors are standing aghast, anxiously waiting for "THE
END!" HALE B£OS. are merely carrying out their established
programme of closing out all goods at the end of each season, even
though it be at a loss, bo that they may present their patrons with
choice, fresh goods at the opening of each season,
That this CLEARANCE SALE is no make-believe, we refer to
the thousands who daily throng each and every department of our
That it has met with a support never before witnessed in this
city, and altogether in excess of what was anticipated, is evident
from the hundreds who, owing to the crowded condition of our stores,
could not receive attention.

THE GOOD-NATURED COUPLE
[This Is a popular German elory which, being sus
ceptible of many variation*, is uswl by the peasantry
as a satire upon the ailrf huimvkeepcr*.]
There was once a man called Frederick ;
he had a wife whose name was Catherine,
and they had not long been married. One
day Frederick said: "Kate, I am going
to work in the fields ; when I come
back I shall bo hungry, co let me have
something nice cooked and a pood draught
of als." "Very well," said she, "it Bball
be ready." When dinner-time drew nigh,
Catherine took a nice uteak, which was all
the meat ehe bad, and put it on the fire to
fry. The steak soon began to look brown
and to crackle in the pan, and Catherine
stood by with a fork and turned it. Then
she said to herself : "The steak is almost
ready ; I may as well go to the cellar for the
ale." So she left the pan on the tire, and
took a large jug and went into the cellar
and tapped the ale cask. The beer ran
into the jug, and 'Catherine stood looking
on. At last it popped into her head, "The
dog is not chut vp — he may be running
away with the steak ; that's well thought
of." So up she ran from the cellar ; and
sure enoifgh the raEcally cur had got the
eteak in his mouth and wab making c.ff with
it. Away ran Catherine, and away ran the
dog across the Held ; but he ran faster than
she, and stuck close to the steak. " It's
all gone, and ' what can't bo cured must be
endured,'" said Catherine. So she turned
round, and ac she had run a good way and
was tired, she walked home leisurely to
Now all this time the ale was running,
too, for Catherine had not turned tbe cock ;
and when the jug waa full the liquor ran
upon the floor till the cask was empty.
When she got to the oel!ar-st-\ira she saw
what had happened. ''My stars ! " said
she, "what shall I do tj keep Frederick
from seeing all this slopping abont T " So
she thought a while, and at last remem
bered that there was a sick of line meal
bought at the last fair, and that if she
sprinkled this over the floor it would suck
up the ale nicely. " What a lucky thing,"
said she, " that we kept th;it meal ; we
have now a good use for it." So she went
for it ; but she managed to set it down just
upon the great jug full of beer, and upset
it ; and thus all the sle that had been
saved was set swimming on the floor also.
"Ah! well," said she, "when one gues
another may as well follow." Then she
strewed the meal all about the cellar, and
was quite pleased with her cleverness, and
said, " How very nrat and clean it looks !"
At noon Frederick came home. " Now,
wife, "cried ho, "whathave you fordinner?"
"O, Frederick," answered she, "I was
cooking you a steal:, but while I went down
to draw the aie the doy ran away with it,
and while I ran after him the a c all ran
cut ; and when I went to dry up the ale
with the jack o f meal that we got at the
fair I upset the jug ; but the cellar is now
quite dry, and looks so clean ! :> " Kate,
Kate," said he, "how could you do all
this ? Wny did yon leave the steak to fry,
and the ale to run, and then spoil all the
meai?" "Why, Frederick," said she, "I
did not know I was doinj; wrong ; you
should have told me before."
The husband thought to himself, if my
wife manages matters thuß, I must look
sharp myseif. Now he had a good deal of
gold in the hoti3e, so he siid to Catherine,
" Whit pretty yellow buttons these are !
I shall put them in a box and bury them
in the garden ; hut take cue that you never
go near or meddle with theru." "No,
Frederick," said she, "that I never will. '
As Boon a 9 he was gone, there came by
Borne peddlers with earthenware plates and
dishes, and they aaked her whether Bhe
would bny. "Oh dear me, I should like
to buy very much, but I have no money ;
if you had any use for yellow buttons, 1
might deal with yon." " Yellow buttons f
said they, "iet in have a lock at them."
"Go into the garden and dig where I tell
you, and you will find the yellow buttons?
I dare not go myself." 3o the rogues went ;
and when they found what these yellow
buttons were they took them all away, and
left her plenty of plates and dishes. Then
she set them all about the house for a show ;
and wbeu Fiederick came back, he cried
out, "Kate, what have you bten doing ?"
"See," said she, "I have bought all these
wi-.h your yellow buttons ; but I did not
touch them myself, the peddlfis went them
selves and dvi; them up." "Wife, wife,"
said Frederick, " what a pretty piece of
work you have made ! those yellow buttons
were all my money ; how came you to do
such a thing?" " Why," answered (the, " I
did not know theru was auy harm in it ;
you should have told me."
Catherine stood musing for a while, and
at laat said to her husband: "Hark ye,
Frederick, we will soon get the gold
back ; let v? run after the thieves. "
"Well, we will try," answered he; "but
take some butter acd cheese with you, th»t
we may have something to eat by the way. "
"Very well," s»id ilte, and they set out;
and as Frederick walked the fastest, he
left his wife sonic way behind. "It does
not matter," thought she; "when we turn
back I shall be co n.uch nearer home than
Presently she came to the top of a hill,
down the siile of which there was a road
so narrow that the cart-wheels always
chafed the trees on each fcii'e as they
patsed, "Ah ! see, now," said she, "how
they have bruised and wounded thesn poor
trees; they will never get well." So she
took pity nn them, and made use of the
butter to grease them all, so that the
wheels might not hurt them so much.
While she was doing this kind office, one
of her cheeses fell cut of the basket and
rolled down the hill. Catherine looked,
but could not oee where i( was gone; so
she said: "Well, I suppose the other
will lo the same way and iind you ; he has
younger legs than I have." Then she
rolled the other cheese afrer it ; and away
it went, nobody knows where, down tho
hill. Bat she said sho supposed they
knew the roa'l, and would follow her, and
Bhe could not stay there all day waiting
At last she overtook Frederick, who de
sired her to give him something to eat.
Then she gave him the dry bread. " Where
is the butter and the cheese ?" rail he.
" O ." answered she, " I U9ed the batter
to grease those poor trees that the wheels
chafed so : and one of the cheeses r»D
away, so I sent the other after it to find
it, and I suppose they are both on the road
together somewhero." " What a goose
you aroto do such silly things !" said the (
husband, "How can you say so?' said
she ; " I am i>ure you never told me not."
'They ate the dry bread together; and
Frederick said, "Kate, I hope you locked
the doer Bill when you came away."
'■N<>,' : answered she, "you did not tel!
me." "Then go home and do it now,
before we go cny farther, " said Frederick,
"and brinij villi you something to eat."
Catherine did as he told her, and thought
to herself by the way, " Frederick wants
something to eit ; but I don't think he is
very fond of butter and cheese ; I'll bring
him a bag of fine nuts and the vinegar, for
I have often seen him take some."
When she reached home, she bolted the
bask door, but the front door she took off
the hinges, and s»id, " Frederick told me
to lock the door, but surely it cm nowhere
be so safe as if I take it with me" Si she
took her time by the way : and when she
overtook her husband, she cried out,
" There, Frederick, there is the door itaelf,
now you may watch it as carefully as you
please." "Alas ! alas !" said he, " what a
clever wife I have ! I sent you to make the
house fast, and you take the door away, so
that everybody may go in and ont aa they
pleace — however, aa you have brought the
door, you shall carry it about with yon for
pains." " Very well," answered she, " I'll
carry the door ; bnt I'll not carry the nuts
and vinegar bottle also— that would be too
much of a load ; so, if you please, I'll
fasten them to the door."
Frederick, cf course, made no objection
to the plan, and they get off into the wood
to look for the thieves ; but they could not
find them ; and when it grew dark, they
climbed up into a tree to spend tbe night
there. Bcarsely were they up, than who
should come by but the very rogues they
were looking for. They were in truth
great rascals, and belonged to that class of
people who tind things before they ara
lost ; they were tired, so they sat down an.l
made a tire under the very tree where
Frederick and Catherine were. Frederick
slipped down on the other side, and picked
up some stones. Then he climbed up
again, and tried to hit the thieves on the
head with them ; but they only said, "It
must be near morning, for the wind shakes
the fir-apples down."
Catherine, who had the door oa htr
shoulder, began to be very tired ; but she
thought it was the nuts upon it that were
so heavy, so she said softly, "Frederick, I
must let the nuts go." " No," answered
he, " not now, they will discover us." " I
can't heip that, they, must go." "Well
then, make haste and throw them down if
you will." Then away rattled the nuts
down among the boughs ; and one of the
thieves cried, " Bless me, it is hailing."
A lit'le while after Catherine thought
the door was still very heavy,
so she whispered to Frederick,
" I must throw the vinegar down."
"Pray, don't," answered he, "it will dis
cover us." " I can't help that," said she,
"go it must." So she poured all the vine
gar down ; and the thieves said, " What a
heavy dew there is !"
At last it popped into Catherine's
head that it was the door itself
that was so heavy all the time ;
so she whispered to Frederick, " I mu&t
throw the door down soon. " But he begged
and prayed her not tv do so, for he was
sure it would betray them. "Here goes,
however,'' said she — and down went the
door with such a clatter upon the thieves,
that they cried out, " Murder 1" and not
knowing what was coming, ran away bs
fast aa they could, and left all the gold.
So when Frederick aod Catherine came
down, there they found all their money
safe acd sound.
THE WOOING OF SLEEP.
An endeavor to go to Bleep is a mistake.
For example, when the will makes »n ef
fort to dull the ear the mental sense be
hind the sense organ is thrown into a con
dition of listening and tension. The power
of hearing is not diminished, but, as it
were, restricted in its range and its night
ened sensibility— as the vibraule capacity
of a musical reed may be raised by reduc
ing the length of the liber along which its
vibrations are propagated. Noises that
would not previously have been noticed
are perceived, and become sources of an
noyance. This intensifying of the sensa
tions in the attempt to go to sleep, of which
most persons are conscious, is doubtless
partly due to the quiet that prevails in the
house and bed-chamber ; but there is also
an increase of the susceptibility of the per
ceptive faculty, frequently to such an ex
tent that the ticking of a watch or the
tapping of an insect behind the wall-paper
will not only be heard, but be actually pain-
So it is with eight ; when the eyelids are
cloeed the inner mental sense of vision be
comes increasingly acute, and the field of
sight is toon crowded with grotesque and
rapidly changing images. The worrying
effect of this phantasmagoria is a too famil
iar experience of the sleep-waiter. All the
mental senses are in like manner stimulated
and their acuteness intensified by the en
deavor to lower the sensibility of the sense
orgats. The mental sense of smell may be
rendered so keen that the scarcely percept
ible odor of bed-linen will prove offensive.
Taste may be so stimulated that the natu
ral moisture of the mouth becomes loath
some. General sensation may be S3 inten
sified that a rough thread in a sheet, or a
little stream of cold air rinding its way
under the coverlet, will occasion the most
irritating experience. In short, the whole
process of attempted sense-subduing is un
natural and opposed to the dictates of rea
No such effort ought to be made. Exter
nal quiet ehould be secured, if quiet be
personally agreeable, and whether light or |
darkness be preferable must depend on the i
idiosyncrasy. No CDntrol ought to be ex- !
ercised over the senses. The eyelids should !
not be closed, but allowed to droop when \
weary. There should be no resolution to I
disregard sounds, or to suppress sensations
of any kind. The surroundings being pro- !
pitioii9 and consonant with tlie "feel- i
ings," or, still better, disregarded, mind j
and body should be left to lake their chance I
of sleep, without the striving wlii.:h, iv
truth, is the principal cause of wakeful
: new. This is why it often happens that
i persons" Who cannot sleep in bed by night I
will drop off to sleep readily in a chair by j
day. It is the effort to sleep that keeps off
slumber, and when there is no effort, sleep
comes naturally. If the endeavor to
deep is made, as it commences expectancy
begins, and, paradoxically as it may seem,
the consciousness is actually kept awake to
watch for sleep ! This watchfulness, aris- |
ing out of the eagerness of the desire for >
sleep and the intensity of the effort made '
to woo it, throws the mind into a sort of
tensive anticipation incompatible with
somnolence. Then comes the period of
restless and irritated disappointment, in i
which the mind is so vexed, the brain co
excited, and the organism, as a whole. |
thrown into such a state of irritability,
that the best thing to do is to riso and
take a bath, or wash from head to feet,
with the double purpose of allaying the
excitement and inducing a more peaceful
mood by physical exercise.

The Yoi'nuer Brother.*. — Nearly 3,000
citizens of Missouri, including county
officials in different parts of the State, have
«igned a petition to Governor Uabbard of i
Minnesota, urging him to pardon the j
Younger brothers— Coleman, Robert and '
Jamet— who have been imprisoned four!
years. They Bay i "We have not a word j
to say in excuse of their crime ; it can but j
have the ucqualified condemnation cf all i
good citiaebs ; but we would lespectfally
suggest that the object of punishment is
not vengeance, but the reformation of the
offenders and to deter others. The pur
pose "f Majsr Littleton Younger, if he I
can by lawful and proper means effect i
their release, is to take them with him j
to his home in Oregon, and there
make of them good and peaceable citizens,
which he gives us assurance he can and
will do, and we believe him and honor him
for the persevering effort he is making to
this end." It is doubtful if Governor Hub
bard will be convinced as easily as thoy
have been that good citizens can be made
out of these miscreants before they have
served out their sentence.

"Jolly Girls."— lt is not the leu a
serious question what shall be done with
the American jolly girl, or what she will
do with henielf. The social aspects of the
question aro natnrally the most obvious,
but it b?.s moral aspect* also. When a
young girl gets to be impatient of re
straint, and anxions, first and chief of all,
to have " a jolly time," she is in a position
of at least possible peril. From the jolly
girls in certain ranks of society the Jennie
Cramers are recruited — girls who mean no
barm, but are so careless of conventionsli
ties that they are in danger b:fore they ara
aware. Our social custom* allow a free.
dr>m between the sexes which is wise and
healthy, but contains perilous possibilities.
There is room at least for the inquiry
whether what may be called the calis.
theDic craze, the cultivation of "mannish"
sports, Rumcs and fcrms of physical exer
cise among girlf, may not have been the oc
casion in part for the diminished gentle
ness and womanliness observable in the
jolly girl of the period 1 . A keen old lady
ia said to have comforted a young mother
who was deploring her lot in having no
daughter with tho remark, "Be thankful,

tion. — [Boston Journal.
