YOU WERE INTERESTED IN ROBBERY Did you note that the thugs left the checks behind when they bound, gagged and robbed an Olympia woman last Saturday morning? * Robbers know that checks are dangerous except for honest per sons. Every time you have a check it has to be accounted for. Money all looks alike and can not be traced. But a check without a perfect record is of no value. The way to protect your money from robbers Is to keep it in the bank. That insures your safety and the safety of your money as well.

Gillies' action in deserting Roberts has failed to surprise many who knew him well in Olympia. They say it is in accord with Gillies' attempt to sacrifice Frank Stone, the ignorant fisherman he used as a tool in his forgery of state industrial insurance claims,-when it came to facing trial. They say it is in keeping with the manner in which he treated his wife, whom he is said to have drained of money, then left her without word of where he was going, to face alone a charge of aiding him in his escape. Sheriff McCorkle left for Brighton Monday afternoon, anil arrived there Thursday. He is expected to reach Olympia with Roberts Sunday or Monday. Roberts now faces a peni tentiary sentence, of 10 years, in addi tion to his four-year sentence to the Monroe reformatory, and it is expect ed that, in an effort to obtain clem-' ency, he will reveal the details of their escape from the local jail. Mrs. Gillies, wife of the fugitive, l ■who is herself out on bonds pending 1 trial on a charge of assisting him to' escape, said: "I'm so sorry Jack is caught. As long as he made the effort to get away, I had hoped he would get where he wanted to go, even though ! I did think he was foolish to try and escape." She seemed neither worried nor excited over the news. "I am extremely pleased with thej capture of Gillies," was Governor. Lister's comment. Both Gillies and Roberts will be j tried for jail breaking, Prosecuting Attorney Yantis says, and Gillies will also be tried as an habitual criminal. If convictions are obtained, both can be sentenced to life imprisonment. Upon hearing of Gillies' arrest, Prosecuting Attorney Yantis imme diately began the preparation of ex tradition papers, and these were ready Friday morning, being issued by the governor as soon as approved by the attorney general. Concerning the arrest and plans for the return of Gillies, Governor Lister said in a for mal statement: "One of the traveling guards of the state penitentiary Is now on his way to Olympia and will be named as the state's agent. He will be accom panied to Key West by another of the penitentiary traveling guards, so that it will not be necessary to stop off along the line on the return trip for the purpose of securing rest Also on account of the distance to be cov ered, I feel it advisable to send two guards. "As the time allowed by law In which to perfect an appeal has now expired, Gillies will be placed In the penitentiary immediately upon his arrival in the state." Win Claims at Colville. Two Olympia people, Claus J. Lar son and G. A. Garrett, won claims in the Colville Indian reservation, in the drawing which took place at Spokane Thursday. Larson's number is 75, while Garrett obtained No. 427. The latter is associated with Millard Lemon of this city. Mrs. Georgia Hanson, proprietress of the White House hotel on Fourth street, was attacked, bound, gagged and robbed of SB6 by two men early Saturday morning. They had en gaged a room at the hotel early In the evening and about 2 o'clock Saturday morning called Mrs. Hanson out into the hall on a pretext. They escaped after robbing her. The hold-up was identical to one recently pulled off on a lodging-house keeper of Butte, Mont., and, it is thought, was done by the same men. Miss Helen Grace Caldwell of Se attle, who recently returned from Honolulu, where she was an instruct or in voice culture in Oahu college, was the guest of honor at a luncheon given Monday afternoon by Mrs. J. J. Higgins. Miss Caldwell is a member of the Seattle chapter of the P. E. O. society and Mrs. Higgins' guests were the members of the local society. SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR.

Everything Reduced No Reservations Merchandise of every kind and description is truing up, up, up ail the time. The end is not vet; much higher prices are predicted for fall and spring by people in control that know. Owing to the fact that we had a big stock of merchandise on hand, bought at the old prices, we have not raised our prices nor asked the advance we are entitled to, ex cept on overalls and a few other items we had to buy. We realize that people in this section are hard up and not able to stand much boost in prices. It appears that business is good everywhere except on the Pacific Coast, and we are doing as good business as anyone else, but we are not doing enough to meet all of our financial obligations as promptly as they should be met. Therefore, we want to raise some money quickly and are willing to sacrifice our profits to induce you to buy for cash more goods than you would ordinarily buy. We offer all of our regular goods, all over the house at our everyday price LESS 10 PER CENT DISCOUNT, AND ALL LADIES' SILK AND WOOL GARMENTS, COATS, SUITS, SKIRTS, DRESSES, LONG GLOVES, STRAW HATS, PARASOLS, ETC., AT 25 PER CENT LESS REGULAR PRICE. TERMS, CASH ON DELIVERY. This will mean an actual saving to you of 25 to 50 per cent, figured at prices that should prevail now and do prevail in most places. We prefer to do this and give you all the benefit instead of wasting this saving that belongs to you, in a hot-air advertising scheme. This sale will only continue long enough to raise a certain amount of money, and is subject to change and stoppage without notice; therefore, act quickly. The Mottman Mercantile Co. J. C.
