He Spent the Night Behind Bars for
It, However.
Based on the experience of a prisoner
nt the Center stiett police station last
night, this ndvlte Is offered: Don't
make a suspicious movement with your
right hand tovvnid your hip pocket. It
wns tried by a man named Kearney,
of Sanderson nvenue, and he missed a
chance to gain his freedom.
Keniney was m rested eaily In the
evening by Patioiman McColllgan for
refusing to pay for a lunch nt the
Scianton House. The prisoner was
sober and was oidered released by Cap
tain Hdwards, who directed Keniney
to appear if the chaige against him
was pressed. After leaching the door
of the station house Kearney wanted
to be letalned in custody, but he finally
responded to unmistakable orders to
get out.
After being escorted through the door
nnd after reaching the sldewulk, Kear
ney whirled about and exclaimed:
"Take care I'm on the street now."
He accompanied the iemarkby thrust
ing his right hand significantly Into hl3
Captain edvvards and Desk Sergeant
Beese Jones took no chunces on pos
sible icsults. They were upon Kearney
In a second. He wns hustled inside and
locked up. His suspicious motion was
found to have been a "bluff." however,
ns no weapon was concealed upon him.

piece of gas pipe. The pipe was about
two and one-half feet long and one
end wns stopped up by a bolt. Count
erman diilled a hole In ono end for use
ns a breech.
The pipe was then charged with
powder and buckshot. From the nature
of his wounds Counterman must have
stood in front of his improvised gun
and applied a match.
An explosion followed nnd pieces of
pipe Hew in nil dliectlons and Counter
man lay wilthlng on the floor with a
badly burned stomach. A portion of
the wad and powder had entered the
outer covoilng of his stomach.

tend him, and careful attention was

A badly mixed up und somewhat
amusing case was given an ulrlng be
fore Justice of the Peace O'Neill last
evening. The tiouble otlglnated over
the action of some mischievous boy3
last Monday evening while the wily dis
penser of Blnckstone wns busily en
gaged settling a case which had come
befoie him. The lutter case attracted
a large-sized crowd, which packed the
ofllce until standing room was at a
premium. Before the interested parties
arrived the motley throng became ob
noxious, especially to 'Squire O'Haia,
who appeared to be figuring In the
official capacity of private counselor,
and as a lesult the room was cleaied.
A laige number of bojs were In the
crowd and after thoy were ejected they
began to put themselves in evidence bv
thi owing stones at the olllce, which
enraged the Justice, who determined to
assume the role of detective to feiret
out the perpetrators. Just how well he
succeeded Is evident from the fact that
three piomlnent young men weie nr
lested last evening nnd placed under
ball to appear at court. It appeats the
Information was furnished by some
wag, as the trio were Iznorunt of the
chnrge nnd felt somewhat angry over
being mixed up In such u case. Tho
matter will in all probability come to
light befoie many moons.

Our Great Suit Store
Holds Its Annual
Fall Opening . . . .
WHEN the Ready-to-Wear Costume first appeared it was greeted
with enthusiasm by thousands of women, who saw in it not
only a saving of time, but a saving of money, But there
were objections. The chief objection was a marked similar
ity of style. One costume was very like another, and
the purchaser fouud herself duplicated at every street corner.
Things are different now, and we have done our share in bringing
about the revolution. The objection of duplication has not been fully re
moved as a whole, but it has been entirely eliminated from this store. There
is no point in which we are so particular as in this matter of exclusiveness
of style.
The gowns you find here have no duplicates elsewhere. The first
thing you'll notice will be the jaunty, snappy, tasteful, stylish air about
them. The next thing will be the exquisite finish and detail of their manu
facture, made as they should be made. Made as you like to have them made.
The materials are Coverts, Broad Cloths and Cheviots, in the season's
new shades. Most of the suits are fully silk lined, some tight-fitting, others
in double-breasted or reefer effect. The skirts are made in all the new shapes,
