Such crowds were never seen before in one store. They came, they went, they came again, more eager than
the first time to secure the Bargains, for no such values were ever offered before in Cameron county. The only ques
tion is, can you dare, in justice to yourself, afford to miss an opportunity like this to secure your wearing apparel at less
than twothirds you will be obliged to pay at any time? Never again will you have such a golden opportunity to secure
wearing apparel at less than the actual cost to manufacture. Come, look and see with yoiirown eyes the sensational
values we are giving. Remember this sale continues for '

Aug. Celaya,
Pres. and Gen. Man.
Now, while it is raining, is a good
time to talk about the new railroad.
Don't drop the subject for a mo
ment, The Monterey News contains a
denial that the Mexican Central
contemplates crossing the Rio
Grande at Brownsville, but that
does not prove the road will not
cross here;
You people who think the
citizens of Brownsville do not
appreciate a good thing, , should be
here now and note the interest
manifested by the general public
in the proposed new line of rail
road, the first public' announce
ment of which appeared in The
Herald yesterday. Col. Lott,
who is at the head of the enter
prise.'is receiving much encourage-1
nient, even from sources least ex
pected, and the prospects are
bright indeed. The Herald will
keep its readers thoroughly advised
as to progress? and would suggest
that they do not get too impatient,
and expect things to happen too
quick- It takes time to build a
railroad, and while you are wait
ing just spend your spare moments
in thinking of the immense benefits
to accrue to this section.

brilliant red, which makes it a
conspicuous inhabitant of the sea
as it darts here and there with
quick, alert movements. The
body of the squirrel fish shows a
few stripes and is well covered
with sharp spines. j
FEMININE FINANCIAL MIND.
Women Cannot Grasp the Realness of
Money In Large Sums.
"The reason women rarely make
a success as financiers is that they
have absolutely no conception of
money in bulk' said a well known
broker of this city in discussing this
question recently. "We have ex
amples of it every day. We have a
few women patrons, but we don't
like them. 1 guess you'll find that
chivalry dies out when it comes to
a question of taking care of wom
en's money for them.
"Men think of large sums of mon
ey in the abstract; women only in
the concrete. If you tell a woman
she will profit $10,000 in a certain
deal she thinks you are honest and
not trying to get ahead of her. If
you tell her there's going to be a big
coup of $100,000 or so she looks at
you in childlike bewilderment. Her
experience does not give her any
clew to the possibilities of this sum
of money. She does not realize how
much tangible value it represents.
Jily, my! That seems an awful
big sum of money,' said one partic
ularly unsophisticated woman who
had made a successful deal through
accident rather than design. 'Could
I live comfortably on that for the
rest of my "life ? How much would
my income be a year, say, without
touching the principal V
"A woman is afraid to deal with
money in large sums unless she hap
pens to be trained to it. She can't,
in her mind's eye, see how many
houses or rents or school bills it will
pay for. When she hears of a large
sum of money she always wants to
know how much it's going to buy
her, how it is going to look in some
concrete form, like houses or dresses
or trip3 abroad. As a simple quan
tity to figure interest on she can't
realize it." Philadelphia Eecord.

Pongee ;ilk to be successfully
laundered must be hung on the line
uithoutjrringing the water out and
allowed to thoroughly dry. Press
with a moderately warm iron with
out sprinkling.
Restoring Black Lace.
A strong solution of vinegar and
water is efficacious in restoring the
color of black lace that has grown
