Each year, in Jaeiiary, we clear away our .surplus winter stocks. From now on we plan to carry out this policy
with drastic thoroughness. A mild autumn and delayed winter means a bigger surplus than usual to be cleared away
arid consequently we start this sale with big assortments. Here is an opportunity of hundreds of Bridgeport men to secure winter clothing, at the time when the need is the
keenest! at big reductions from early winter prices. We offer you clean-cut savings easily secured and an unusually liberal measure of genuine clothing satisfaction.

Is rather a.-civil one, than one with a
criminal aspect. '
It Is tonderstood that attorneys-rep

to obtain the "return of large amounts
l:of money Invested in the enterprise, but
. , there are numerous creditors in Devon
' who will sadly miss Former's presence
in the' little community.
Former came to this city 'from the
West. He pndertook the contracting
- and building of houses. ' Mrs. ttectoi-,
who wished to build for speculation,
employed him to erect three houses at
- a total contract cost of f 8,100. ,
She had paid nearly 7,000 in cash
when.-' Former disappeared. Many
' creditors declared ,Jbat the material
for the-houses had not been paid for
by Former, and: the police were asked
' to - ascertain j where money given foy
the local woman had been spfent It
was the result of this inquiry that led
to'his arrrest at the Hotel Navarre in
New York by Detective Sergeant Ed

"What do you know of the Meriden
strike?" the witness was asked by Mr.

object was and Mr. Wells said that he

POSTAIi NOTES.
New York, Jan. Preparations are under way for the twenty-second annual bonBpiel of the Northwestern
Curling association, which will be held at.Duluth, Minn., the Week commencing Jan, 17. Many eastern rinks are
expected to be represented at the tournament. Wherever th "broom and stone" game is played there are evidences
of unusual activity, and this is true particularly in eastern centers of the Bport. Last year the few eastern -teams
in the event proved no match for those from Canada," and the Canadians carried oft the honors. This year the east
promises a reversal of form. Nothing short of a clean sweep w.ill satisfy the eastern players. Pjcture shows scenes
