On Tuesday morning, May
2.1th,
THE WHEN
Will make a reduction of
331.; per cent. one-third, on
a line of men's, youths' and
boys' clothing, giving the
greatest and best bargains
ever offered in Central Ohio.
Don't say "chestnut" until
you read. It is not the prom
ise of a peddler or tramp
bankrupt trader, but the con
tract of the Leading Clothing
House of the United States,
responsible financially for
every promise, and whose rep
utation is worth more than the
few dollars that the false
promises ol reduction in price
might bring in.
The When means business.
Remember we are not offering
odds and ends, but a large
fresh stock, manufactured
especially for our trade. Hut
let the ficures speak to you.
H
thnWhpn tritnrnnteeW evervS'ctim is reported to be 111 a precarious
J 1
promise.
Don't fail to see these
goods: the cloth alone in many
garments is worth more than
we ask for them made up.
Examination will prove to you
that the When alone can offer
such bargains.
Little Shops, however blat
antly advertised, can not
offer such bargains and live up
to the promise.
The When carries a larger
stock than all other stores in
the same line in Springfield.
Remember the place, 25
and 27 West Main St., Spring
field. Ohio.

I llless tills request Is strictlj tolllilled
Willi 1 1) each fauul) and public place, the
trustees will hate to resort to an aitual pro
hibition of Its use altogether, except at such
tin tt1 as a sulhcieut supplt is on hand to
keep nil the pipes full: foreterj tune the
pipes become enipt i on the high ground ami
air is admitted, there 4 imminent danger of
the pipes bursting somewhere when the
are again tilled with water, ami siu h a re
sult might deprite the tit) of water for
several dats.
1 he neresMtt, therefore, fur a reduction
of the list', at Icist one h ilf, is mint ratite
for jour protection and safet), and we lie
Iietejou will all cheerfull) colupl) witli
this mpiest until tter.ni serte jou better.
We hate an abundant supplt of the pur
est and tiest water on our own grounds,
whitli tte tan nut to jour service within
tvventt-four hours after a jnodltication of
the pendlmr restraining order, which pre
tents us f roni placing our supplt piie under
Warder .V II irnetfs head race, but at pres
ent we hate gone as far as wo tonld go to
wards furnishing ion with a full supplt of
w ater.
'I he fault of the shortage is not now with
Us.
We hate the water in our resertoir, and
are read) and anxious to gite it to )ou for
Use, but our hands are tied, ami the water
is running to waste.
The trustees desire to sat further, that
the statement published a few da) s ago in
iP,aIf of Warder A. Harnett and 1. 1". Mast
A tti. Is misleading and deceptlte.
I he plan the) proinise for tire protection
cannot be carried out at alt without serious
injury to the whole works, and even if the
trustees were willing to sacrifice the health
of our people tortlie sakeof tire protection.
it stiilcannot Utcarried otitforaii) praitical
purKise in an) onlinar) tire.
If we should accept the projiositloii of
Warder A Ilirnett ami 1". I. .Mast A Co.
ami turn the dirt) water of the head race,
untiltered, into our wells, galleries and
pilK"s. the) would become so polluted as to
tie utterly unfit for months to come, to fur
nish drinking water.
More than this, such a reined) would onl)
lie mvesNAty when the water in the stand
pio was si low as not to gite a tire pres
sure, and if in this situation a lire should
occur, it would take several hours to get the
tire pressure In the stand nine, after we
houhl run the water from the rate into the
wells. In these hours scores of houses
would tie in ruins.
Or If instead of pumping thewaterdirect
into the stand nhie for rue protection, we
should, after running it in from the rate,
attempt to shut oil the stand piie ami pump
direct for tire pressure, an hour or more
would lie remitted III making the necessary
change before we would get any water tor
lire purpoces. During that time much de
struction vtould be the result. And when
alt this should be tlone,after an hour's dela)
or more, there would still Ik' a greater dan
ger of the bursting of the pipes and losing
all the water supply, because our engines
are not adapted to that kind of pumping.
Hence, the relief offered bt Slessrs.
Warder A Harnett and I I. Slast A. Co.
is no relief at all, unless tte should hate a
fire lasting through many hours,and then, it
would onl) 1h used b) despoiling our wells
ami p!Ks, tendering them unlit for furnish
ing witter for domestic purjost-..
'lhe trustees regret the situation: hate
done all in their power to remedy it, and In
a wa to them that seemed would not injure
any one. but if the result should show any
Injur), the) hatealwa)S stood pledged to
make reparation.
Thet hate not attempted to takv .1115
bod)s water but their own, but If It should
happen that a few rain tlro)is should fall
into our restrvoir which ought to bate
fallen into Buck Cieek, we arealwa)s will

Columbus, Ohio, his been engiged to paint
the great -cues and is now at work on
them, trom tittle card-boird models, whiih
he worked out witli the co-ojterauon of Sir.
Okey.
As stated, the story which it is proposed
to illustrate by the tanv Asses is that of the
MMll tIK TI.Ol
anil its capture by the dreeks through the
stratagem of the wooden horse. The Iirst
scene represents the awarding of the prize
of beaut) to Venus by Ihe youth I'aris.
Fans was a son ot Mug main, tils
mother hating dreamed that she would give
birth to a firebrand. King l'naiu sought out
an interpretation, which was to the effect
that the boy thus born would prove the de
struction of Troy. Alarmed at this, the
king had the baby carrieil to .Mount Gar
gartis, wheie he was left to die. He was
toiind ami cared for by a shepherd ami
grew up a graceful athlete. Liter
on. a mutest of lieauty was
a feature of a bamiuet ot.
gods and goddesses on Slount Oltmpus. '
Juno. Slinerva and Venus were the con
testants and the detision wis left by
Jupiter to lari. Venus was awarded tlie
prize, ami in her gratitude to I'aris pro
mised III in the most beautiful woman in the
world for a wife. It is at tit's point, as be
fore stated, that the great scenic representa-i
Hon begins. 'Hie scenery w ill bo painted to;
represent the rustic banqueting space on
Slount Olympus and before this men and
women assuming the characters of the tari
oils gods and goddesses will present in
pantomime the incideutln whii h the Trojan
war had birth. Subsequent'), I'aris it a
acknow 'eJged by l'riatn to be his son, andJ
was taken home to enjoy tlie luxuries Of
his priuct !y station. Then he remembered
the promise of Venus to gite him tlie most
lieantiful wtuniii to wife. Hating heard of
tlie beauty of Helen, wife of Slenelaus, of
bparta, he set out for Greece and succeeded
In aNlucting Helen.
Till sMTOMl sf-l m
gites a tiew of the Slediterraueati and the
islands In. tween the Grecian and Asiatic
coasts. The galley lie.uiug I'aris ami Ins
companions and the lieantiful Helen Is
seen gliding titer the pilntett sea. lins
stene has been painted by Sir. Jensen in
small form to show something of its beaut),
ami Is reall) an excellent piece of work.
If the large cant as equals it, it will be of
itself something worth seeing.
The abduction of Helen was followed b)
a call to arms in Greece. Slenehus se
cured, through the carrying out of an old
agreement, the assistance of all the former
tuitors for Helen's hind. A large army of
Greeks proceeded toTro) and laid siege to
that city.
A sMItTIM, of -riM
giies an exterior tiew of the city, its gates
and turreted walls with the tops of the.
buildings U' j ond. Outside the walls will
be the Greek host represented by men
armed and equipped as tt as then the cus
tom. Horses and war chariots will lie
there, participating in tlie battle. The per
sonal encounters related by Homer, the sal
lies from the city, the repulses and t ictor
ieswill all be reproduced with tividness
and historic accuracy. The withdrawal of
the Greeks after the nine years fruitless
siege, and the construction of the hollow
wihiden horse will also beshown. It will
tie remembered that the witlidnwal of the
(.reeks was only a nisi' and tint the horse
was so constnu ted as to hold hidden in
side three hundred warriors. The horse
was ui-iile lirge so that n breach In the wall
would be iieee-ar) to iermlt its being
dragged into the c.t). The Greeks counted
on the curlosit) of the Trojans to accom
plish this. They w ere right.

Sunday was mission try day at Central
SI. K. church. In the morning, the nastor,
I'd. Dr. Wm. Hiuiyan. preachtd an able
missionary sermon, the subject being "The
World for Jesus " The etching was giien
up to the Women's Foreign Missionary so
ciety. The t hiireh wis toiufortah!) tilled,
principal!) b) the usual attendants. .Mrs.
Dr. I!un)ait presidid. and seated on either
side of her were Sirs. Dai Is. Sirs llamse),
Mrs. Sedgwick and Sirs. Jtohrrts, who were
to take part in the exercises,, n iqieiiing
piece was sung by the choir under the lead
ership of Sir. 1). (. Sljers, after which the
president announced Isaac Watt's beautiful
lit mil, "Jesus Shall Iteign Where'er the
Sun does Successive. lounieis Hun." Mrs.
Hun) an then offered a fertent prayer, and
after the singing of another pin e by the
t holr, read a irtiou of the seventh chapter
of .Matthew.
The president said that the object of the
meeting was two-fold. Fir-L It represent
ed tlie work of the societ) priqier. The
Woman's Foreign Missionary society of the
Stethodlst Episcopal church was nrst or
ganized In Boston. Slarch :!0. ISti'i. Since
then eiery branch aid kind of Foreign
Slisslonary work has lieen covered hy the
society. So that now It is a most valuable
auxiliary ot the pirent board. The Woman's
Foreign Slisslonary society has been de
clared bv a well known and loved bishop,
to be one of tlie mint wonderful organiza
tions in the world. The sis niiil object of
this meeting was to present )irohabl) the
least known mlsslouar) held in the world,
namely Corea.
Sirs. Flaiius Dai is read a rejiort on the
woiih or Till sooiin.
The aiixiliar) ot the Central church has
lieen holding steadily on its way, the pres
ent membership being fi !. While during
the year tte hate lost some names, yet we
hate not been discouraged, for that there is
life we are hating the etidence m the put
ting forth of new leaves, and while some
hate ilropiietl off. yet others hue been ad
ded. While there are many Christian women
in the church that ought to lie enlisted if
they could be aroused to take an Interest in
the mission work, and while it Ls im(era
tiie that we add to our members, yet
we may grow In other ways
as well; must grow more spiritual
in love, more definite in aim. and more
replete w ith fen ent pray er. Them has
been a renewed effort among the members
to increase the interest of the monthly
meetings. We have no notel ways of
working to present, and no charm for suc
cess, except the open secret of courage and
perseieranotf. While at our monthly meet
ings one ot "more haie lieen selected to
write or read of some special mission field
)et our s)iupathios and prayers embrace
the world, and while we hate remembered
the plea of our missionaries whose one
great need is ever) where the same, ei ery
where the most pressing calls togiie them
our pra) era, tlie w ai e of blessing comes back
to our hearts and we unit our own faith has
been Increased.
The simplest efforts of the society hat e
been blessed, for, (lerhaps, while we have
no grand results to show from the intest
tnents made, )et there Las been the blessed
ness of Christian fellowship, and for our
selves the jo) of service for our Lord.
Feeling that Information Is necessar) to in
telligent work, and that tte cannot afford to
lie ignorant of missionary work or mission
ary news, the Ilrntlien H'oihuii's Friend
is taken by quite a large number
of the members, and coming
from the tery center of the
activity of the da) as we read the descrii
tions and letters from our missionaries, tte I
are made acquainted with a wide stretch of ,
lauos rtim imir iitiito such llisjjimtiuil
and encouragement that tte feel stimulated
to renewed effort that we may accomplish
more and better tilings. The amount of
money sent for the three quarters of this
) ear may not seem a large sum, y et a glance i
at the inner meaning of these figures will
reteal much to encourage. Store than Just
the receipt lu dollars and nt, we count
the love and prayers that accompanied each
contnb-tion, while tlie efforts that have
been made, required from perhaps but a
few personal sacrilice, and there may i
nave ueen many that have as
yet given to the Uml onl) that which has
cost them nothing, tet tte know that there
are many earnest hearts praying and plan
ning and willing to work if only the cause
may not suffer los,. We find much cause .
for gratitude and encouragement, and tt hen
mingled with these gifts and efforts is tlie j
sacrifice of prayer, and with an omnipotent i
leader, whose strength ts pledged for our
weakness, we luqie and beliete that the
next ) ear it HI show i greater adtanee in'
tlie work than ah) before It. for we feci I
that each member should endeator in her I
own way to accomplish some little piece of
the work, tint when it is githeret irtthej
great mosaic, it shall lie t tlid glory of I
God.
Sirs. Ella Jwslgwlck then read an excel
lently prepared paper, giiing a brief lus
turyof the won lerfulcountr) Corea wlUi

Our dictionary says that the
word "advertise," means to
inform. In reading some re
cent advertisements, one is al
most tempted to doubt Web
ster's aliiiry to define the
word in the light of ad
vanced (?) business methods.
If some ot the ladies look at
it as though it ought to mean
to misinform, we cannot won
der at it.
For instance, if we see a
business house advertising
that they are selling Dry
Goods, or Shoes, or anything
else at half price or less, and
then find out that their goods
are not worth one cent more
than they ask for them, per
haps not as much, the only in
formation we get from that
advertisement is that some
body's conscience has gone to
sleep.
John McLaren & Bro. want
to advertise in the old fash
ioned Websterian sense. We
want to inform the people of
Springfield that we are here
to sell them Dry Goods, etc..
at the very lowest living price,
and if we cannot sell as low as
any house in the city we will
gladly close up shop. We
have a way cf doing business
that suits us, viz Cash and

suit the people pretty well,
too.
