ISFECIAt TEI.KQRAM TO THI DISP.i.TCn.1
West Xewton, April 25. A rather pe
culiar case of kidnaping came to light in
this place to-day. At Martin's Ferry, O.,
lives a family named Creswell, with whom
has been living Mrs. Hattie Bhodes, au
aged woman, the mother of Mrs. Creswell.
Mrs. Creswell's sister, Mrs. Annie Shone
luan, died a few months ago, leaving a hus
band and a bright black-eyed 2-year-old bod.
The little fellow's aunt adopted him, and
he became the adored charge of the grand
mother. About five weeks ago, a difference
arose between the mother and daughter
concerning the little fellow. A tew days after
this tbe old day left home, telling the daughter
that she was going to the doctor's to get some
medicine. That was the last beard of them
until two weeks ago, when the grandmother re
turned home without the child. Sho would not
tell what was done with him, but it was sup
posed that she was too much attached to tbe
little fellow to stay a ay from btm long, so she
was constantly watched.
Mrs. Creswell, remembering that she had a
steter living near West Kenton, came here to
day in search ot her. She was accompanied by
William Burns, Marshal of Martin's Ferry,
who broucht with him the necessary papers to
reclaim the child should it be found. They
went to the home of Mrs. Wheeler, at Fort
Koyal. where to the great joy of the foster
mother tbe child was found, playing in the dirt
before tho door, fat and happy. She was so
overjoyed that she prc-6ea tbe little fellow to
her breast until be cried.
Tbe noise brought tho Wheeler family out in
full force, and when it was made known to them
that the child was to be taken away, they
showed light, but 'Squire Washbaugh and the
Marshal's papers soon cooled them down. Mrs.
Creswell left for home this erenlng with the
child, the happiest woman on earth.

rsrxciAX. teliobam to the nisrATCH.1
McKeespoet. April 2i Edward Snowden,
of Blairsnlle, brother of the late Georee
Snowden, who died at Dixmont, February 22,
will commence to investigate the case to-morrow,
with the widow of tho deceased. They
will visit the asylum, and will have tho remains
exhumed, so as to see that they are those of
George Snowden. and to ascertain, if possible,
if his death was caused by anapoplectic stroke,
as is asserted by the people at the asylum.
Snowden will also take 6teps to learn at once
whether or not the authorities at Uniontown
telegraphed to Dixmont that tbe deceased had
no friends.
Mrs. Snowden says this statement is ridicu
lous, all the more so since her husband was
visited so often; also, that she will not be satis
fied until sho goes to Dixmont and sees the
remains. She says the hasty action of the
management in not notifying her family, nor
even her brother-in-law that be had died, had
aroused her suspicions. She also says when
she visited Dixmont this week she asked the
man to whom she talked to have tbe remains
taken up. and was told that she conld not look
at them as it would be too fearful a sight. Her
sons will accompany them also when tbe asy
lum is visited, and ft is probable the remains
will be placed in a csKet and taken to Browns
ville, where they will be buried.

BREAKFAST.
"By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws
which govern the operations of digestion and
nutrition J and by a careful application of tho
line properties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps
has provided our breakfast tables with a deli
cately flavored beverage which may save us
many heavy doctors' bills. It is by the judicious
use of sudh articles or diet that a constitution
may De gradually built up until strong enough
to resist every tendency to disease. Hundreds
of subtle iialadies are floating around us ready
to attack Iwherever there is a weak point. We
may escajlc many a fatal shaft by keeping our
selves well fortified with pure blood and a prop
erly nourished frame." Civil Service Gazette.

Pay for the Right
Kind.
The clothing business is
being churned up into foam.
It looks as if there were im
minent peril. If all the cloth
ing in Pittsburg isn't sold by
six o'clock to-night ! ! !
There's likely another day
to come. More days to wear
clothing. And the srreat thinsr
is, not, Will the clothing be
sold? but, Will it give me long
and good service?
Don't be swept off your feet,
then. Keep cool. Get the
right kind. Pay the right price
for that. j
We want to sell our goods.
We're as eager for you to buy
of us as anybody can be. But
we're not kicking up a dust.
This is our argument. The
cloth is reliable; the work
manship there is no better;
little, as good; the prices are
reliable, just, the lowest the
very lowest.
Do you think we manufac
ture our own goods to let any
body undersell us? If they're
reliable we'll be lower-priced
than they. We're not buyers
to sell again. We're makers
of clothing. What we sell we
make.

BEING THE DEADING FEATURES.
Everyone knows that it is dress that makes a man appear at
his best, and we furnish the dress to suit in every in
stance. We have a mammoth and complete stock
of fine suits, correct in weight, fabric and cut,
and a visit to our establishment will sat
isfy you that we are the leaders in
every particular. And why
not come and see
what we have in
ELEGANT SPRING OVERCOATS!
We'll show you a stock three times as large as carried by any
other dealer, and beautiful garments in every particular,
bearing the imprint of perfection. Ypu are under
no obligation to purchase, yet should you do
so we guarantee you better value than
found elsewhere in Pittsburg.
AND WHAT ABOUT PANTS?
Are you supplied ? Have you just what you desire for the
soring- ? If not, we can please vou bevond measure. The
bare fact that we carry three times the quantity and va
riety of any other dealer, should be a prime incen
tive to discriminating buyers. Don't be misled
into the belief that "noisy advertisers" under
sell us they may on paper, but never in
the store. We are also showing a
countless and matchless line of
Plain and Fancy Vests !
Every novelty on the market this season. We have the sin
gle and double breasted in every material, pattern
and cut and can fit your body and pocket
book alike to perfection.
In Boys' and Children's Clothing
You will find there is nothing you ask for that we cannot sup
ply in finer qualities and for less money than any other
dealer. We made you open your eyes last season,
but if you only call you'll open them much
wider this season to behold our
increased stock.
W HAT DEPARTMENT IS SPECIALLY I8VITING !
We carry all the fashionable styles. The newest shapes,
colors and shades in Derbys and Soft Hats, all the noted
makers' styles without the noted makers' prices.
i Boys' and Children's plain and fancy Hats and
Caps by the tens of thousands, and none
can compare witn our marvelous low
prices. By all means call
and inspect them.
.
In Footwear and Furnishings
We simply defy competition, having long held the trade, of
the city in both departments, and our stock lever
was larger or more attractive than it
will be found this season.
PRESENTS TO OUR PATRONS.
In our Men's Clothing Department we are giving away to
every purchaser of $15 worth or over a magnificent
metal umbrella and cane stand. It is nearly 25
inches high and rz6 inches in circumfer
ence, is beautifully ornamented
and adapted to any home.
During the present week we shall also continue to give with
every purchase of $5 and over in our Boys' and Children's De
partment a very serviceable Hammock. It is strongly made,
maybe had in assorted colors, and is very simply adjusted in
any place required.
A Baseball Ticket Free with Every Purchase in our
Clothing Departments.
