A • WJM New Ycrk The IDrarr.a 0! The Department Store. Here is a point to ponder lor ' tboeej who seek the cause of the "at'ing of domestic service. Mi«« Kli/.ab* th Howard Westwood writes in the August New Idea Woman’s Magazine: “But the irresistible fas cination of business for women of all classes lies in the nature of the life itself. The humblest cash girl in a department store leads an in tensely dramatic existence Under fed she may he. She may neglect all the canons of good health. From : a material standpoint she may be an object of pity. But. for all that, her hand is on the pulse of life, its throb is lieis to feel ami see. She is part of an industrial machine, huge, palpitating, magnetic. The salesladies she admires, the floor walkers she obeys, the buyers she envies, the heads of the firm she de ities. When it comes to knowledge of distinguished customers, she is a veritable ‘Who’s Who in America.’ | With her peers, the ‘bunch,’ she swears eternal friendship, shares her I troubles and reta'ls her joys. Nor is it necessary for her to be a stock holder in the corporation to feel keen pride in the progress of the store, while the sales and standing ol her own department are a matter of deep personal importance.” ftn Old Show With New Features. Many of us have visited the Van , Amburg Shows in years past and recollect with pleasure the splendid performance this show always gave the public. It is one of the shows that gives all it advertises and its motto, “Please the people and they w ill please you,” is the corner-stone upon which the great success of the Van Amburg Show is built. Start ing more than forty years ago with a small wagon show, today it travels all over the country in its own mag nificent cars by special trains. The improvement on the old-time per formance is just as great and every act given in its big tents is ot a high order and strictly up to date. Elephants, camels and a large col lection of trained animals and po nies are to be seen in the grand free street parade on the morning of the day of exhibition. Van Amburg’s Show will exhibit I in Kenova on July 14th. On yesterday at Portsmouth Sher iff Spenoer and Jailer Kyle captured William Pauley, one of the men who broke jail at this place three weeks ago. Pauley, it will be remembered, was in jail awaiting trial iu the fed eral court for complicity in defraud ing the United Slates mails. Cop ley, who was arrested with Pauley and who was the principal in the case, had his trial in the federal court at Charleston three weeks ago and wras released upon the payment of a fine of fifty dollars. Pauley stated that he had been in various localities since his escape. According to his story the other members of the party who made their escape from the prison went together into the country, a few miles and scattered, going in differ ent directions. He is the first of the escaping prisoners, to be appre hended. - Huntington Dispatch, July 2. *- ^ ^ — The Palace Hotel, Sixth and Vine Streets, Cincinnati, is a gem in the way of service at rate*, $2.00 and $2.50, or $3.00 with bath, per day on the American plan; $1.00 up wards, European plan.

Proposition in a Nutshell A large property of mineral laud covering about 270 acres on the wept side of the same range that has produced ou its east side around »30o,000,000 to date. Conditions are reported the same on both sides. Conditions Warrant the belief that au equal amount of ore will be taken from the west side and considerable from The Kerr-Mehrlich’a large property. A railroad building within a few miles of the property, aud a state wagon road from the railroad to th« property. It is because no railroad facilities were to be had heretofore that this district has not already been developed. An abundance of natural resources—timber, water, etc.—plenty of which are so essential for mining purposes. Some of spruce tim ber on property is estimated to stand 160 feet high by 16 to IS feet in circumference. Last year during dry season Mill Creek, which runs through district, gave 205 horse power on 5*foot wheel. The property practically surrounds that of another Company’s is mining paying ore. The latter’s surface veins which opened up at shallow depth yielded ¥186 per ton ore, are plainly traceable through Kerr-Mehrlich property. Isu’t it reasonable to assume that ore of similar value will be encountered ou Kerr-Mehrlich’s property when worked to tame depth?
