The fall trade Is opening ip brWkly at II. J. Gillin's, with one of the finest stocks afastldl ous public could ask for: a stock of the greatest variety, and complete in all details. PRESS OOODS, The dress goods stock, which Mr. Glllen ever keeps perfect. Is particularly rich In all that is new and novel In faney and staple dress goods.

It will be hard to find an equally attractive stock In this county in tbe lines above named or one approaching it In size or lowncss of prices on really desirable goods. Immense stock of flannels, cloths, blankets, water-proofs, domestics and all staple dry goods. Mr. Gillcn's shawl stock, everybody concedes now-a-days, is always tho best in the city. It is particularly attractive just now. Boot and shoe stock lately replenished with full line of ladies', gents', misses', youths' and children's boots and shoes offered nt low prices. Grocery stock, the best and cheapest in the city. Mr. Gillcn's resources are unlimited for meet ing the most exacting demands of the season; ho is never undersold; and asks only a call from the public to prove all he says. Wm. Trablng, the veteran Ottawa clothier, has laid in an elegant lino of fall and winter clothing. Some of his specialties are Xiee kilt suit for children. Children's clothing to fit all agos, from tbe smallest child up. AJtne line of overcoats and very cheap. Think of it, an extra size overcoat for as low as 12.50; and from that up! Fashionable line of hats and caps. Xoveltics in fancy shirts, and a general line of furnishing goods as fine and cheap as you'll find anywhere. William keeps no high priced clerks, has light expenses, and gives his customers the benefit. He will let no one undersell him, and generally greatly undersells his neighbors. "HVtMixr" If vou want anv custom mnAn clothing, Interview Trnblnc. A correspondent of tho St. Louis insurance journal, Sow ami Thin, writing from Ottawa, says: "The old American Central Is represented by Vernon C. Harris, Esq., son of that v eteran Underwriter, and autnor of numerous insurance works, J. O. Harris, Esq., who Is the leading in. surar.ee man in this part of the state. Young Mr. Harris has spent some years lu the insurance office of his father and Is well posted in the busi ness. He is a young man of intelligence, and we bespeak for him abundantsuccess In his busi ness. He has only recently taken the agency of the Central, but wo expect a good business from his agency. We extend to him tho fraternal hand of welcome into the American Central family." Tho city has bought for $300 the wooden build ing just north ol the jail, to be used as headquar ters for the fire department. The building was used as Hahn's trimming room; Is 54x30 feet; making room enough for the property, horses, Ac., and will make very comfortable temporary quarters. It is perhaps pretty Tar out of town, but It is the best that can bo done. A bell is needed, and one might bo bought aad put up temporarily until a new hall Is built. By the by, Asst. Marshal Shay of Chicago says our depart partment would be wade much more effective if tho city had two engine houses instead of oue as lately. Underwear for the coming season, best quality and lowest prices, can be found at Frank & Co.'s. During the squall on last Saturday aflernooi, during the fire, the wind upset the carriagcof Mr. Cy. Debolt and ono or two others, and -ast It into a ditch on east Main st. The buirgywas wrecked and Mr. Debolt slightly Injured. The fall stock at Child & Phipp's is coping in rapidly now, and au immense lot of finend de sirable goods are now ready to bo shovn.

Gay A Son, carriage builders, were the most fortunate men in Ottawa on last Saturday. Many people called it luck.

Beautiful fall and winter overcoats, our own muke, just open at A. Frank & Co.'s. On Saturday night three men, claiming to be rvilroad men from Streator, called at Dean's barn and wanted a conveyance with driver to Strea tor. Mr. Dean very reluctantly gave them what they wanted. Before starting out of town they took in a load of budge at Carroll's saloon on Main st. When out near Grand Ridge they took the reins in their own hands, as the driver did not travel fast enough for them, the road being heavy, and In a few minutes succeeded In upset lng and destroying tho carriage. They proceeded toward Streator on foot, whllo tbe driver rode home on horseback. Weill Weill This Is trie word used by all the women that have bought those Cass shoes. "They really do beat everything I ever saw. You cannot wear them out." Try ono pair and satisfy yourself Call aid see us and see if wo look as though we were going to sleep. Maubk Broh. Bjmember always that tho place in Ottawa to buy dry goods, including carpets, is at Lynch's Why do Mahcr Bros, sell so many ladles' and 'children's shoes?

Editors: Permit me through your columns to return my most hearty thanks to the legion of friends who rendered such noble assist ance in rescuing our personal effects from the holocaust of last Saturday, and especially for the care with which the removal was effected. hoping none of them will ever know from sad experience the grntltudo that fills the breast of those who at such a time have such herculean efforts put forth in their behalf. And to the hun dreds of friends who offered to throw open their houses to receive my homeless family I simply say I hope they never shall have occasion to know from experience the feelings that take bold of tbe soul at the evidences of such person. al interest devoloped at such a time. Hoping the time may never come to return such kind ness in kind, Is tho earnest prayer of tho sub scriber. J. Mitumx. . More Jew Good a coming in at Hull A nave been Battels' this week. Fun Thihuino.
