The other is because we sell you goods at reduced prices at the beginning of the season. This is where you really save, because nowhere else can you trade* as eco nomically as here, nowhere else can you find goods equal to ours in true worth for so little money. Try. if you will, to match our prices and you will be disappointed Our Saturday’s crowd persuading prices, as quoted be low, should prove irresistable temptations to those who would trade economically, for we have never before been able to gather at one time so many real bargains as our offerings this week represent. | Carpets A A raaenificent display.

Work Is Given Poverty-Stricken Peasants of Ireland. In various parts of Ireland there are at the present moment many undertakings which never would have been entered upon but , for American money. The latest is a doll factory situated at a place called Stewartstown, close to the banks of the Lough Neagh—the largest lake in Great Britain and | Ireland. The establishment of ' this factory is due directly to the enterprise of Mrs. Frances Rid dell, who, when a simple peasant ;irl, emigrated to America 30years ago. She made money by invest ment in real estate in the neigh i borhood of Chicago, and has now i returned to do something toward alleviating the distress of her na tive country. With the assistance i of another American—Mr. F. T. Wall, of Cincinnati — she has founded what is known as the Co operative Home Industry society, and the manufacture of dolls is the first item in the programme. Al ready a good start has been made, and as many as 60 girls are finding constant employment. The cap ital required was not much—some thing like $5,000—because all the materials required can be found in the immediate locality. Irish products alone, both in the mod els and the dressing, are to be used. It is not intended to pro dnee the stage Irishman or wom an, but to give an accurate rep resentation of the native in a faithful manner. Mrs. Riddell is at present confining her efforts to cultivating trade in the British Isles, but she has hopes that in time she will be able to do a big business with the United States. The f urnishirife of dolls’ houses will occupy her attention later on. Boiling Kettles' Without Coal. Every day in London scores of workmen’s kettles are boiled in lime that will afterwards be used for its proper purpose. Just be fore the breakfast hour, say, one of the workmen empties a quan tity of the dry lime from a sack. In the center of this lime he makes a hole, and into it water is poured. Then he puts his kettles into the water, and in a few minutes the kettles boil. In thousands of cases a fire is thus spared. Roosevelt’s Policies.
