Attend This Big Monday Sale of
New Fall Millinery
Prices Are For the One Day—Monday Only
While every day is bargain day in our Millinery Department, Mondays are set
aside as clean-up days in various lots of hats and trimmings which the close of
Saturday's business leaves unsold.
Every week new shipments are received here, and rather than fill in or carry
over odds and ends left at the end of each week, they are put into a Monday
sale at prices for the one day only.
It is impossible, of course, to determine beforehand just what these remaining
lots will be, but every hat offered will be the top notch in style and quality.
It will pay you to attend these Monday Millinery Sales, which may include
just the sort of hat you want. Quantities are as a rule limited, and, therefore,
early shopping is advisable.

TO liSJSIMONEITI
Stricken in West End Store While
on Way to Market; Dies Two
Hours Later
Stricken with apoplexy, Mrs. Cath
erine S. Simonetti, of 215 Forster
street, wife of Lewis R. Simonetti,
the wholesale fruit dealer, fell
over on Third street while on her
way to market this afternoon and died
less than two hours later at the Hart
man Hospital.
She was picked up and rushed to
the hospital in a passing automobile
soon after being stricken but efforts to
revive her were unavailing. Surviving
Mrs. Simonetti are her husband and
the following children: Frances, Ross
and Catherine.
Mrs. Simonetti, who was 4 8 years
old, had been apparently in the best
of health during the summer. While
on her way to market she stopped in
the store of Cleckner and Burke, 1226
North Third street, to make a pur
chase. She fell over on the counter.
The funeral will be held from St. Pat
rick's Cathedral. Further arrange
ments have not been made.
HOW SEWAGE IS
PURIFIED BY BACTERIA
"One of the best examples of mod
ern methods and equipment for sew
age purification is the plant recently
built for treating the sewage at At
lanta, Ga., where the first Ihoff sep
tic tanks ever installed in this coun
try are in service," says the August
Popular Mechanics Magazine in an il
lustrated article. "Septic tanks of this
type, though a comparatively recent
invention, are already in common use
in the Ems River valley, and other
sections of Germany, and are said to
have proved the best means yet dis
covered for the first stage in the bac
terial treatment of sewage. The Im
hoff tank is simply a modification of
the ordinary septic tank, which is it
self an enlarged and improved cess
pool. As in the case of the cesspool
the process of treating sewage by this
method depends on the action of bac
teria, but in the septic tank this action
is carried out rapidly and on a large
scale.
"The raw sewage enters the Imhoff
tank through a series of inlets spaced
across the end. It then flows slowly
through the tank, and the liquid is
finally discharged through outlets at
the opposite end which lead to the fil
tering beds. The first bacterial action
on the sewage takes place during its
passage through this tank. There is
nothing done to bring this about or to
assist it, the action being a natural
one exactly like the decomposition
that takes place in a cesspool. Much
of the solid matter contained in the
sewage is decomposed before it sinks
and is transformed into a liquid, but
I the heavier parts settle through a slot
I Into a compartment below known aa
Ithe sludge-digestion chamber. The
| deposit of sludge is being constantly
j decomposed and transformed into a
| liquid by the bactoria. so that the ac
cumulation of sludge i 3 so slow that
[the chamber can ordinarily go for
■ months without being cleaned out."
I MAKING THE TORCH PAY
| People are beginning to find new
I comfort values in the porch. A few
years ago the porch was just a part
jof outdoors like the front walk; we
[sat there In the summer time on heavv
J storm-proof chairs and enjoyed it, but
! the porch was just a porch—a place
I to sit.
| Then electricity became housc
! broken and the porch light was in
i stalled on the ceiling and the screen
| ed-in veranda began to look like a
I room and to be used as a room. Com
: fortable chairs and rugs and tables |
that were afraid to be out in the dark i
| have become regular porch furniture I
j and an extra receptacle or two have
I been added so that there may be a
, *oft, comfortable reading light on the
table and a fan on sultry nights and a
'chafing dish for an impromptu party.
