OatSt the vain delusion thal all low-priced
goods are cheap. Ws do not chum the ques?
tionable distinction of selling the lowest
priced gooda Intown, but wotliinkth.'quality
of our goods in any line compares favorably
with anyotherat same price. And the steady
and continued growth of our business, during
the three years we have been here, testifies
to the appreciation of that fact by our pat
rtjne.
Our present business has been built up on
these principles, viz:

money back if you want it.
All goods marked in plain figures,
and ono price to everybody.

est stock in town, because we don't know
what our neighbors have, but wc invite you
to give us the opportunity to show and price
our goods to you. and wo tliink they will
commend themselves to your best Judgment

TB E ROPE WALKER'S ROMANCE.
No one who saw the tawdry finery
of his tinsel trappings and the cheap
appointments of tho famous Signor
Sklvutoi i:i as single handed and alone
be piepared tho paraphernalia for bis
tight-rope performance which had
brought him his glory would bavo over
imagined that there was time or space
in his busy lifo for romance. The
signor was a peripatetic perambulator
of the rope, and his fit ld of perform?
ance ^lay in count ly towns, where it
was his wont to stretch his narrow
pathway across a street from roof to
roof of houses whose owners were wil?
ling to extend tbat privilege to him in
sxchaoge for tickets to "Tho Great and
Only Megatberion Concert," which fol?
lowed the outdoor exhibition. Yet ho
bad a romance, and there was in it
those elements which ono greater than
Signor Sulvatoria might ^easily have
?.rystalized into a melc-draina that
would have stirred the applause of a
.hcusaud galleries.
"The greatest ac I ever done," he
tatd, with a natural and easy disregard
>f accent and syntax, "I done in an
}hio town ahout ten yoars ago. I was
1 ng my turi, thero for a week, and
t ,vas the county fair season, and I
ras following their trail like a s'euth,
or thpy brought people to town and
lelped my business, never nono too
food. Tho third night ot my per
ormancp, which was a half-hour ex
libition in mid-air before tho concert
ad begun, I had gone up on the roof
o get things ready, and while I was
ottering around enuggin' up the rope
nd seeing that there wasn't any loose
ogs to bo dropping, I heard a screech
p through the scuttle hole leading to
be roof, and the next second out
opped a woman like one of theso here
imping jacks. It gave mo a hard pull
n my nervop, but I flew over to soe
*hat the matter was. It was my land
idy?and here I want to Bay that
hen I stow for any tiing in a town I
0 to a boarding-house where I can
et a rate that Jwon't break me. Got
2 do it in this line. Can't give it all
1 railroads and hotels*
"In this ca60 I not only stopped at
bil boarding-house, but the landlady
st me stretch my rope from her roof
a the root of tho house across the way,
? it wns tho main street of tho town,
, wa-; convenient a'l the way round
)r mc The only drawback was that
ie lady had a half-crazy hu-baud that
ever had done anything for bor when
o bad his senses, aud now she had to
upport him And take his abuse of her
very timo ho got a jealous fit, which
?a-* every time sho bad a new boarder
lat was -myth ng for looks and style."
Signor Salvatoria stopped a moment
t this remark, stroked his littlo chin
biskcrs and smiled rolrojpectively.
"Sho had only been polite to me be
uitso I had bein polite to her, os any
ent should be when there is a grotty
oman around, and the landlady
as tho prettiest little woman, about
i big ns a piece of soap, I had met.
"As a was saying, when I got to ber
ie had slung tho cover to the scuttle
:>.e over it aud was sitting on it with
jr jaw set and trying to stick her
ies into the roof to help hold it do. .1.
i a mighty few words she told me h,r
lsband was on the chase after ber
ith a hatchot to ! ll her,and ho would
) up from below in a minute. She
ain't as lad scored as I was, for I
idn't have much experience in that
nd ot huAmm Mri didn't know whit
I
to do. I didn't Lave anything to de?
fend myself or h* r with, t ither, and
Ihe morel began t_lhnk how many
things that thero were that was more
dangerous than walking j. tight-rope
50 feet above tho earth, and me as ia
nocent n__ a babe. The little womau
told me to bring a barrel half Jul of
saud there was os or iu ono c.r.ier of
the roof, and we'd set it over the cover
of the scuttle to hold i. down. I d ne
it as fast as I could, and when we ha.l
tho barrel thero and about fixed, the
crazy husband came -dashing up with
his hatchet, As luck would have it,
the sand fell in on him aud knocked
him off the ladder below, and the tar
rel got stuck iu tho hoU, ao tho little
womau and me had a minut j to think,
and she done the thinking.
'?Are you afraid?' says she."
'- 'dome,' says I, nodding toward the
scuttle hole.,'
" 'I mean of me?' mys she smiling."
" "Not much,' Bays I."
*? 'Are you strong?' s.ys she."
" 'That's part of my act,' says I."
"Bat not against a crazy man with a
hatchet," says I, wondering what she
would do next and about how long it
would be till the crazy man was on
deck with his tomahawk gleaming tu
the air.
'"Then,'says she, "grab hold of me
right quick and carrv me across Ihe
rope over lo Mrs. Peck's house so's my
husband won't get at me with that ax.
"She had more not ve in a minute
than 1 had in a week, but when she
said that, my professional pride come
to me, and without any more talk I
reached for my balancing pole, and
Hooping down so -ho could get on my
back, which she didn't 1 Le vo y much.
[ made a quick run f r the end of the
rope just as the o.azy lu .and came
jut of the scutt e through the barrel
ind tumbled down on the roof half
(mothered with saud. I told her to
iold tight and do the prayin' for both
)f us, and 1 thought I could get her
-hrough ?afe. I don't know how I
-Vfr got on the rope with her on my
jack, for that wasn't the woy my pro
ossion done business, but I got there,
ind as I shot out with the woman
tlicging to me the people in tbo streets
_elow set up such a yell as I never
leard before, and I come near losing
ny balance, for 1 knew, as they didn't,
vhy this feature tbat wasn't on the
(ills waa being showed.
"The crowd yelled about twice, and
hen all of a sudden got so still I could
ear the little woman's heart beat,
loy way, I thought I could, but may le
t was my own. I knew when they
?ere dono that the crowd had seen the
ian on tho roof with the hatchet, and
ecognized him, for all the people ia
he town knew tho kind of fellow he
rae. At the same time tho crowd got
till something came to me telling me
o nerve myself, for the crazy man
rould cut the rope and drop me and
ly load in the street, to be crushed
ito a shapeless mass, and I carno near
itting go and dropping before I was
ropped. I couldn't Bea what waa go
lg on behind me, and all the little
-oman knew she was whispering to
te to go ahead, because we were safe
' I only kept my path. I didn't know
hother she thought about the man
ith the hatchet or not. Likely she
id. It wasn't her to mention it,
lough, under them circumstances.
"While I was flunking about him
itting the rope I wis getting along it
>ward the safe end aa fast as I
mid, the little woman hanging on till
ie nearly choked me, but it didn't
ort, and I was standing it beautiful.
I'i funny how a man will find pleasure
i life where there's so much in sight
tat ain't, and I nearly forgot the man
ith the hatchet thinking ab ut the
.Ile woman's arms holding tnt i my
.ck as the ono hope of her life. But
was only for a second ; then I felt ?
ir on tho rope and I choked and
aced myself, for I was sure the crazy
an was beginning to cut, and I knew
at three or four licks would be
tough. I waited for tho second jar,
it it didn't come, and iu i's place
.mo a spring to the rope, as if a
light had been takon off of it, follow
i by a swishing sound and a dull Hud
i the sidewalk 50 feet below us. At
ie tho same time tho ero . d aent up a
omi as if every pei son in it waa hurt,
lidn'i know for sure what had hap
ned, but I guessed that the crazy
in, like most any crazy person or a
id dog, only had room iu his mind
r one thing at a time, and when that
ia there there wasn't space <or any
ore. He wanted to kill _ns wife and
e only way he know how to do it wa?

would go out there and kill her. Crazy
people have such a crazy way o( doing
things don't they? He did, and when

death. That's what bad made tha
rope spring back. I gueBS the Jittlo
tv oman must have felt tbat something
awful had happened, though she never
said a word, becauso when I at hut
stepped safe on to the roof and tha
crowd yelled a hundred times loader
than they did before they knew what
they were ye'ling about, the little
women let go her hold around ray neck
and dropped at my feet in a dead faint;
aud 1 didn't blame ber, either ; it waa

THE SMALLEST BOOK.
The smallest book in the world is
five-eights of' an inch long, seven-six?
teenths of an inch wide and three*
eights of an inch thick. It contains
205 pages of tbe finest type imagina?
ble, so small that the point of a pin
would cover a single letter; in fact, a
magnifying glass is required to reid
tho volume. This little work is in the
possession of Charles Scribner's Sons,
who keep it in an envelope. Tbe book
does not cover a dime, and you could
;ut three leaves for it out of a 2-cent
postage stamp.
