Pennsylvania, from which place he A v-.ppi !i I on the evening preceding his delta, The police stated that they had learned th.it i le hanker, who was a drui,' addict, had sonc to lr. Franols Morhard, a houM physician in the Hotel rcnnsyl tinla, on Saturday evening for an In jection of morphine, and had obtained It. They said that h returned to Dr. Iforl .ml a short while later and wanted another Injection, which was refusod. whereupon he became enraged and rtiouted, "If you don't five It to me pjl go where I can get It." On this lecond visit, they said, Dr. Morhard taw llie hanker an Injection of spirits o ammonia and rosewater. The banker when the needle was about to be Inserted Into one arm requested that It be lngeHed Into the other one, toe cause he had received so many Injections that the ons armTwaa sore. After he left the Hotel Pennsylvania, the polled ey. he wandered to the Her ald Square poolroom, at M Blvth ave nue, where .lamea Ready works as man ager. What became of him after that they do not know. Heady repotted to the police after 6 o'clock In the morning that upon en tering his room ho had discovered the banker, whom ho could not recall having icon before, lying: dead upon the floor. How the man had comn there, he said, or how he had met hla death was a mystery to him. Both the street door of his house and ttin door of his room can be pushed open without the aid of a latchkey, and tho only theory advanced by him to the police was that some one knowing this and knowing that he would he away from his room had lured the . ii.;.. i tbere. A woman occupying the next room told the police that at 2 o'clock Sunday morning she heard a thud In Heady's room and two voices In discussion. She thought nothing of It at the time, ahe said. At 4 o'clock she awoke again and heard loud snoring In Ready's room. No one could give the police any Idea who had produced theae sounds or who had gone In and out of the house during the early hours. Heady, who was questioned with James Troy, a frlendi told tha police that he had gone to the Herald Square Hotel on Hunday morning and had not aet out for his own room until after 6 o'clock. Vot thin reason, he said, the persona who had robbed tho banker had several hours in which to do their work. The body waa claimed yesterday by Edward Talbot of Klklns, W. Va the banker's brother-in-law. It will be shipped to rhlllppl, W. Va.. for burial. Mr. Talbot arrived here, in company Willi John Ryan, a contractor, and Will Ism Dayton, a. lawyer. A. H. Bradford of this city, with whom Olm had busi ness relations, accompanied them upon a visit to tha Morgue. They declared their Intention of doing everything pos sible to punish the persons responsible.

It must be puzzling at this present time for would-be purchasers of needful articles to form an opinion of the proper values of wearing apparel and other aticles under the present conditions of insistence of their sellers and the numerous pretexts given. The advertisements, however, prove the abundance of merchandise still on hand that was probably overpriced at the begin ning of the season, or that buyers have overbought themselves. Not a few of us learn only by experi ence. Our many thousands of customers con tinue to encourage our efforts to make this establishment their servant because we do not overvarnish our advertisements and because our goods are standards and priced at just prices and all who are ignorant of proper values buy here, where best judges make their selections.
