It Is true that if a man goes to a fashion

of the cost, and of equally durable mate

a tail, r w ho does not hat e to hear heav)
los-es b-caue of long credit, and who
pains a tar more extensile trade by liberal
adierti-iug, so that he can afford to take
less initit on each garment. The whole
buslns of what is called custom tailoring,
or the making of garments to measure, has
undergone a radical change in New Vork
within recent jeare, and the transforma
tion hn 1 n brought about by the judic
ious use of newspaper advertising on the
l'art of enterprising tailors. The price of
custom clothing wait absurdly high before,

the wagon here the day after tl.e bnrglar

occupants as a man nauieil David Hamil
ton, who resides near Enou.
Gradually the links of evidence were
strung together until little doubt remained
that Hamilton was one of the burglars,
and the authorities therefore determined to
secure him if possible.
The police of this city, who have teen
working on the case untirini-Ir. kent a

their apprqach and hurriedly disappeared,
together with his eldest sj-,, Charles.
Nothing daunted, I'Mef Ambrose and Oth

but It proved fruitless.
Shortly after tl e) had visited Hamilton'-,
house. Mrs. Hamilton put m-r little win

and they at once communicated with Mar
