He In stituted suit for $5,000 damages and declared In his affirmation that he had been called "a d thief." After cooling down however Hertoll thought he could get along without the $5,000 and Indicated as much to Mangan s attorney.

THE WESTON MILL GO THIS FIRM'S PRIDE IS ITS DRESS GOODS Something Concerning the Lackawanna Avenue Store of Wears & Hag en. CONSERVATIVE BUSINESS METHODS Ii the Principle on Which the Firm Conducts Its llusiutn"Its Trade Required an Extensive Increase of Floor SpacO"Only an Experienced and Mature-Aged Force of Clerks Are Employed. When the Arm name of Mears & Hagen Is mentioned among those who are accustomed to "shop," the thought of dress goods Is suggested. Along JOSEPH A. MEAHS. with the name of the firm and Its gen cral dry gods business has been con veyed a knowledge of the fact that the Btore keeps In stock a large and varied assortment of dress goods. The suc cess of the Arm since It started In busi ness three years ago has been made possible chlelly through Us dress goods department. The space occupied by the original store room has been Increased two and one-half times, and now Mears & Hag en possess one of the largest stores in g i 1 1 m 1111 1 Wfu n i 1 1 1 1 yyii mi 1 i jrnn w w ati ' mm. m in the city. Its lighting arrangements ate pel feet. This Is particularly true of. the dress goods department. Tlie windows here face the north, giving the light from th direction most favorable to distinguish the different shades of color. Here Is displayed not only siIks and dress goods, but trimmings and every detail that enters Into the mak ing of a fashionable dress. The cloak room Is a large department. Mears & Hagen make a specialty of ladies' and chlldrens' capes, coats and suits, and put forth every effort to secure the most fashionable garments obtainable. The store contains alt the other departments necpssary in a first class dry goods emporium, and employs a large force of polite and experienced sales people, who consider It no trou ble to show goods to customers. The members nf the firm are Joseph A. Mears nnd William H. Hagen. both native Scrantonlans. They have al ways lived In the city and possess the spirit and energy which have featured the city's advancement in all lines of WILLIAM H. HAGEN. trade. Mr. Mears and Mr. Hagen early established the principle that their business would be most successful if conducted along conservative lints, and to carry out this idea they have refrained from any catch-penny schemes to draw an undesirable trade. The result Is seen In the excellent class of custom accorded their store. Originally the store occupied but one single street number on Lackawanna avenue, but recently Its street floor space was doubled and three floors for stocking goods acquired in the upper part of the building. On the second floor is a comfortably furnished ladies parlor, the first to be established among the large retail stores of the city. Mears & Hagen employ only clerks of experience. In no department is there a novice. The firm claims to pos sess the most efficient force of salespeo ple In the city and the claim Is substan tiated by observation In the store, the clerks being of mature age and ap parently a well satisfied working force.

It. Oshtma, of Laparro. Japan, is a guest at the Jermyn. Mr. Ushima is manager of one of the largest mining and railway companies in the "Island empire" and is in this country to study our Improved mining methods and railway systems. He has been In the United States about two months and came here yes terday with the intention of spending four of five days viewing our mines, locomotive .works and railways. He bore letters of Introduction to Ueneral Coal Agent W. R. Slorrs, of the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western com pany, and Ueneral Manager C. H. len der, of the Dickson works, who with Harry W. Howley. chief draughtsman of the Dickson company escorted him about the mines and locomotive works and saw to It that he was hospitably entertained. Mr. Ushima Is about thirty-five years of nee and In stature Is a little above the averaae of his countrymen. He Is highly educated, Iiritrht and pleasant, and speaks remarkably good English for one who was never out of Japan until about two months ago. He re cti ved his mechanical training in the College of Tokio. his Instructor being an English professor. It is Mr. Oshima's purpose to equip the company's mines nnd railways with the most modern machinery. Tho recent war,. he says, has caused a rise In the price of labor and It Is necessary now to begin to economize with labor saving machinery. There is a general industrial awakening in Japan, he re ports, which promises to be permanent and xvhlch will cause the little Yankee land of the East to draw away from its Oriental neighbors.
