EIGHT TRUTHS ABOUT OUR FRIDAY REMNANT DAY SALES. 1. We originated the Remnant Day in Washing ton, and have not only kept it up to its high standard, but constantly strived to improve it. 2. All merchandise is priced for immediate sale without relation to its former value. 3. The Remnants come from our own stock odds and ends, one-of-a-kind things, broken assortments and discontinued lines. 4. By closing out Remnants each' week" you get them while they are desirable, and before they lose their value. 5. In addition to Remnants we secure special lots of merchandise at low prices whenever possible, and often add large lots of our own. 6. We state the actual truth about all merchan dise in the remnant sale; if it's damaged, soiled or mussed, we say so. - 7. No article is ever offered at any price that will not be of actual use to its purchaser. 8, Every Friday is Remnant Day, with the ex ception of a certain period prior to Christmas, and a few other instances; the change being duly announced before hand. TOMORROW'S O FFERINGS AFFORD SPLENDID OPPORTU NITIES FOR SAVINGS. "THREAT" ft JEST "King" of German Trap Shoot ing Club Was Joking, But Ambassador Was Alarmed. CINCINNATI. Sept. 24. As Herman Roeckers, of this city, tho newly crown- cd king of the German Trap Shooting Club, scanned a dispatch from "Wash ington to the effect that Sir Cecil Sprlng Rice. British ambassador, had request ed the State Department to investigate in alleged organization or German Americans in Cincinnati Tor an invasion of Canada, he laughed and said: "We kings are a misunderstood lot. Even when we joke we are taken seri ously." Once a year the German Trap Shoot ers or Cincinnati have a picnic and play at kings and queens. Recently Roeckcrs was crowned king. In his speech from the throne Roeck crs announced the policies or his regime, thus: "All my loyal subjects will at once, prepare for an Invasion of Canada. Easy victory awaits us, my men. All we need to do Is to assemple at the canal, where the royal transports will bo waiting. "From here wo sail to Toledo, and thence across Lake Erie to the- enemy's country. We will seize Canada and raise our royal flag everywhere." "King" Roecker's "subjects" went back to their regular jobs as American citizons next morning, but the "King's" speech somehow traveled to Washington.

This promises to be one or the most Interesting questions raised In connec tion with the war tax bill before It Is passed. Independent dealers In gaso lene are Hooding Congress with pro tests, and representatives of independ ents are coming to town to try to head off this feature of the war revenue measure. The Independents declare the move will hurt them and help Standard Oil and Its affiliated concern. They sa It w ill work out so as to increase the price or gasolene to the consumer about 3 cents a gallon and thus every leading state, where gasolene is used for auto mobile or power purposes, will pay out millions of dollars additional. For Instance, independent dealers In Iowa, where the gasolene consumption is 75,000,000 gallons a year, figure this tax will cost consumers there $2,230.00C n year Thev get gasolene for 6 cents. The tax alone would raise It to 815 cents. The Independents say that In the process of passing the tax along, the dealer will add a half cent and the re tailer another half cent. Thus the con sumer will be "soaked" for 3 cents more Tor gasolene. The independent dealers say they will need more working capi tal to do business, whereas It will work no hardship to agencies of the Standard. Lane Names Delegates.
