J The When Clothing House is open evenings till S o'clock. It's a careless trick in a dealer to adverse prices with, out some sort of regard for his words. Also to advertise prices without knowing before hand that the stuff he adver tises at the prices he names is not possibly to be matched by any competition. We are not "a little -bit" careless when we sav over and careless wnen we bay uvcr dim over again that Winter-weight Globe Mills Cassimere Trow sers at $5 per pair are two to three dollars below the very bottom of this market. And it's not carelessness in us to mention to the buying public that we are making and selling over and over again Boys' Knee Pant Suits in Cor duroy material at $3.00 a suit. All clothing orices from this point are fixed with that care fulness that only the great eastern manulacturers them selves are in position to fix. No dealer can offer you a good serviceable Melton Over coat for a $5.00 note unless he, too, is a manufacturer. No dealer can show such Jean Pants as ours for 75 cts. unless he, too, is a manufac turer. You don't expect it ; it isn't possible. We know it, thev know it, and you are more than convinced fact, with one wearing trial. The same may be said of Furnishings or Hats. Our buying advantages forced up big by numerous outlets by way 01 orancn scores ougm certainly to bring prices for such goods here in Springfield below the average retail deal er who is confined to a single outlet for his goods.

An Outline of Hubert It. Mnuteli's Great I'lay, "Tantled l.tves' At Illack's To Morrow KTenlnp. The new play deals with a subject of immediate Interest to all classes of society Uie marriage law of Xew York and otlv er states. This law does away with the marriage ceremony, reducing the Institution of marriage to a mere understanding be tween the parties. "Tangled Lives teaches that marriage Is some thing higher and holier than is held b tills law and that true con nubial happiness can be attained only by and under a regular and recognized form of marriage. It shows too, how an unscrupu lous adventuress may take advantage of an honorable man by means of this law and ruin his life. The scenes of the pla are laid in and around the city of New York and the char acters liav e their prototypes in metropolitan societ. Bohemia and that higher social grade so generally and indefinite! described as societ," are strongly contrasted, and the former is depicted In striking colors The incidents of Uie pla are entertaininr, the dialogue terse and epigrammatic, the action brisk, and the interest cumulative. While the subject is treated In an In tensely dramatic style, there Is an abund ance of comedy In the play. The principal character in "Tangled Lives" is marked b an iutensit of emotion Uiat makes it par- ti-ularl suited to the peculiar stle of Rob ert B. Mantell as an actor. In fact this p'ay was written forMr. Mantell. The author made a careful study of Mr. Mantell's im personation of Lons Ipanoff, In "Fedora," and then set to vv ork to lit the actor w itli a pirt that would present similar attributes. This was not an easy task, but it was com pleted to the satisfaction of both Mr. Man tell and his manager, Augustus Pltou. He Is recognized as the most successful yo ing actor of the day. Augustus I'ltou, who has this venture in charge, is a manager of long experience. He has engaged a compan of sterling ar tists of metropolitan reputation, and will mount the plav in the most careful manner. McMillln llelrSate.

Third Jesse Trimmer's lot on south side of Fair street near Yellow Springs street streets made, curb aud gut ter In; price, 52,200. We could not get any price on the Sience lot w ithout condemning the same. The Trimmer lot is central and valuable and cannot be bought for less than the price named abov e.

The town is situated in s hollow, and as the train, a long freight, was approaching It, the train in some man ner broke in tvv o. The f onv ard section ran through the v illage and started up the op posite grade. Those of the crew on the rear section stopped that part of the train at Georgiesv Hie. When the forward section was about half way up the grade it broke in two, and the rear section, Impelled by the grade, started back toward the village. B the time the town vva reached it was rush ing along the road vv 1th fearful v elocity, and It dashed into the section that had been stopped at the village at a terrific rate, com pletely demolishing five coal cars. Fortu nately nobod was injured. Fifth Ward Kepuhlican Cluh.

A l oune Man's Story of How Me Got Into Trouhle. Charles Lake, a oung man Indicted by the grand jiny n two counts, for obtaining uione under false pretenses and altering a forged order, was arraigned before Judge White estcrday. He is rather a go 1 look ing oung fellow and talked in a frank, straightforward way. He asked to be per mitted to make a statement of his case, which the court granteiL .TJje following pre the facts as lie alleged them to be true, and the story is of such interest as to merit pub lication: The alleged offense was committed during the brigade encampment here. Two men named Littleton and Holdren wire ninolng hacks. Littleton requested Lake to write out an ordor for the money owing to him at the Cham pion shops, and Lake consented. He wrote the order and gave It to Littleton to sum. The latter demurred but finally put his name to it As Lake was golnz to leave, Holdren called out from acros the street and asked Lake If he wouldn't be kind enough to get his (Holdren't) money also, at the same shop. I.ake wrote out an order and gave it to II. to sign, but the lat ter said he couldn't write and told Lake t put his (II.') name to it; that It would be all right Lake vv as backward about doing this, but a oung son of Col. August Dotze climbed up on the back part of the wagon and said he would be a witness to the transaction, whereupon Lake put Holdren's name to the order. Dotze and Lake then left for the shop, but on the w ay had sev eral drinks and got terribly boozy. He drew both Littleton's and Holdren's money There were more drmks-aud more boozine. The night came on, and Like finally came back to consciousness Ijlng beside a railroad track, with only a tew cents in bis pocket tlie remainder of Holdren's and Littleton's mone. Overcome with mortifi cation, he left the cit, intending to mike enough money to repa them. Some time elapsed, and he finally obtained vv ork at Urbana. He had accumulated the money he owed the men he had wronged, and had It for. them, when he learned that he was wanted in Springfield. This is Lake's story, and may and may not be true. But it is a warning to bos that should not go unheeded. If Lake had not taken "just a beer or two," be would not be in jail with a grave charge over Ills head. A CORN HARVESTER. Important Invention by a Springfield Ma chinist It Works Snccewfally. One of the long-felt needs of agriculture has been a machine to cut and put com Into shocks, and thus to relieve the farmer of the very laborous task of carrying by armfuls, on 144 bills, to the desired place for a shock. John J. Wolf, a machinist of south Lime stone street, conceived the idea that com could be cut and shocked mechanically, so he went to work In his little shop, near Rice street and made his first machine. It was very crude, but tlie desired principle had evidently been accomplished, and Mr. Wolf had strong faith in it He added im provements from time to time, until now he lias succeeded in getting the machine to work to thu. satisfaction of all that .see It The machine is so constructed as to cut two rows at a time, and Is operated by two horses and two men. The corn, as it is cut is elevated by an endless belt to a point where It drops into a semi-circular plat form, constructed of light lath. As it fails upon tills it is placed In position by a man standing between the elev atiug belts. When the des.red number of hills are deposited upon this platform, the driver stops and by the lifting of a lever, the tops of the corn are clamped together and tied. Then by the aid ot a crank the com is lifted up, dropped to the ground and left stand In an upright position. The machine seeuis to be no longer an experiment but a success, and Mr. Wolf expects to begin to manufacture them the coming ear. Tims is added another important agriculture Im plement to the manufacture of Springfield. The writer of this has seen first and last of the efforts of Mr. Wolfs Invention in this line of improvement The machine can be seen at work for a few days on Wm. II. Houck's farm, on south Limestone street. 18GU-Baker 1880-VV ilson. Adam Baker, the genial brother of Sheriff Win. B.
