reason, but that does not do away with
the fact that there will be other "hot

and plenty of them.
One of the unusual sights seen on
West Sixth avenue last evening from
the street car window was an elderly
woman watering a full grown lawn
with a sprinkling pot.
In the future, that is while the sum

A Remarkable Success
All day yesterday our Ptore was comfortably filled with people taking advantage of the
scores of extraordinary values which were advertised. Not a scrambling bargain-hunting
crowd, tut thoughtful, careful, economical, money-saving shoppers. Women who were good
judges of quality and value and who, finding the goods to be exactly as advertised both as to .
quality and former price, and in many cases finding them far better than they had expected,
bought liberally, even anticipating future needs. . '
Judging from yesterday's big business, this sale will prove one of the
great successes for which this store is famous. ;' The success is certainly
well deserved as the values are in most every case even better than any
thing we have ever given at any previous event of the kind.
Come to this store in the morning and come as early as possible, the earlier the befter.

Barney Reynolds today received a wi:e
from Wren, the Australian bookmaker,
who has Squires under contract, that all

on the lesser heavy weights.
There is already some talk of match
ing Bill and Al Kaufman in a twenty
round battle. Confident that he has the
making of a good fighter, if not a real
champion, Reynolds today declared he
would put Squires through Borne hard
boxing matches with some of the clever

him more fully the American method of
the art of self-defense. While Reynolds
did not sanction the move, he intimated
that a match between Squires and Kauf
man was perfectly to his liking.
Squires has made a lot of friends, de

or offer excuses. He merely told the
evident truth that he fought careless

and that he considered himself a dub
for getting it.
