But from the assurance of hundreds of
reliable persons who hare visited the scene
of the disaster, it Is evident those Blankets,
Flannels, Bed Comforts, Ladies', Gents',
Misses' and Children's Underwear, Hosiery,
Gloves, and Ladies', Misses' and Children's
Cloaks, Wraps and Jackets, are the greatest
stifiorers. Evidence, however, of the great
violence of the shock is noticeable through
his entire stock of Dry Goods. The quake
also extended to the Philadelphia Boot aud
Shoe House, where it caused serious disaster
in prices.

The Ureal Attraction at G Mien's
Still continues to draw large crowds- of cus
tomers every day and the rush daily increas
es. The fall stock of dress goods at this es
tablishment is unsurpassed by aay house
west of Chicage, and ne stock these excels
it in desirable and seasonable goods, nor in
fins qualities nor late fashions. Mr. Oillen
makes it a special point to keep up with the
times. No new and stylish article ef ladies'
apparel that comes out in the Easu fails to
catch his eye, and his customers may be
certain beyond a doubt that they never will
be eclipsed in handsome new styles by any
one in the big cities. To select from bis new
fall stock is to be in the height of fashion.
He personally looks after the buying depart
ment and never fails either in choosing the
most desirable goods or in getting them for
what they are justly worth, and he never
fails to give his patrons the advantages of
cnoice (roods and low prices. He sells the
finest of dress goods cheaper than his cus
tomers could get them at retail in Chicago.
This is because he is an experienced buyer;
he buys large quantities at a time and pays
cash. So that no one can save money, but
ill surely lose it, by sending away for
goods. His slock of fancy and colored
silks, velvets, &e., has never been so exten
sive nor so varied, or so low in price fer
the sume quality as at present.
This extensive feature of his large stock
deserves more than a mere mention ; it is
superb. The mauy ladies who have exam.
ined these goods and bought from this stock
never weary in praising it. The assortment
is varied so as to suit every taste and to
become people of all ages, from the small
est school girl to the most sedate matron.
These articles are elegantly trimmed in hun
dreds of different ways, and of the richest
materials. To say that they are of the very
newest styles is unnecessary, as Mr. Gillen
keeps no other.
Needs no praise. It speaks abundantly for
itself and is constantly full of buyers. Mr.
Gillen selects all these goods himself, and
all his finest goods in this line are made ex
pressly to his order out of the very best and
most reliable materials. They arc all of the
newest fashions, and are warranted to give
Is full and correct in every detail, as usual,
and prices are always kept down to the low
est legitimate business figures.
