<ln March 1st we will make an important change in the firm, (details to be given later) which makes it absolutely nee- 1

After 28 Years in Business
We ask you, ''Have we not always dealt fairly with you ?—Have we not always (old you the truth?"—and Ave are abso |
lately honest when we say this is a cost sale, the first one in our history.
We wish to say also that the goeds are right, no garment but what is right as to Style and Color. In fact, ths stock is in as good shape now. if not better, than at any time in the past. We advise speedy purchas- jj
ing before lots and sizes are broken. You have never had such an opportunity befcre, and you mav never have again. m

"I suppose lt was something deep?"
"Oh, no! Nothing of importance.
Then I"—
"What was it?'
There was a battle of words. He
strove to avoid telling her, but even
tually yielded. "She was thinking of
you."
"And do you consider me 'nothing of
Importance?' "
"I meant—l mean —I didn't mean—
What I intended*—
"And was Edith thinking that I am

"But if you were reading her mind
you must have known what she thought

He scratched his head, then stumbled
on: "Well, you see, it was like this: 1

ing on my mind, maybe it was a case
of transference of thought."
This was placating. A suspicion of
a pleased smile stole over her lips. She
didn't speak again for a few minutes,
and when she did her tore was milder.
"What were you thinking about me?"
"Oh, I don't know. Suppose I try tc

"Very well."
He rested his elbows on his kneef
and his head on his hands, covering his
eyes. Presently he said:
"Somehow or other I feel—l think—
I am impressed with the presence of a
tall young man with a long neck and
spindle legs. He wears glasses and

He's Sam Collamore. You're thinking

THE HEADSMAN.
He Used the Sword and Not the An
Prior to 1483.
I am inclined to think that prior to
1483 the sword and not the ax was
usually employed as the weapon for
Judicial decapitation and that a block
was dispensed with, the victims receiv
ing their doom "meekly kneeling upon
their knees," and In this opinion I am
fortified by the concurrence of an emi
nent clerical historian. This learned
writer agreed with me that the ax did
not become the "regulation" lethal im
plement until after the rough and ready
"heading" of Lord Hastings on the
Tower green, when he was summarily
dispatched by order of the protector.
In this Instance, according to the
chroniclers, the victim's neck was

church of St. Peter ad Vincula, prob
ably a "putlog," part of the scaffolding
which, we read, "conveniently lay in
the way." Contemporary accounts
seem to indicate that the executioner
atraddled over the prone body, and
from this position I infer that the de
capitation was effected by the tool
known as an adz, the cutting edge of
which Is at a right angle to and not in
a plare with the haft.
I may add that the only contempo
rary reference I have come across of
the use or proposed use of an ax and
block for inflicting capital punishment
prior to this tragedy is in one of the
Paston series of letters describing the
peril of an unfortunate captive of Jack
Cade's rebels (A. D. 1450), a generation
before Lord Hastings was so clumsily
hacked to death.—London Notes and

The Blind Man and Elephant.
There were once six blind men, who
had often heard of elephants, but who
had never seen one, for, being blind,
how could they?
happened one morning that an
elephant was driven down the road
where they stood, and they asked the
driver to let him stop so that they
might see him.
Of course, they could not sec him
with their eyes, but they thought that
I'hing him they could learn just
md of an animal he was.
