Ladies Work., i
There are many Odds and Ends for
That Ladies would like to make
themselves, but cannot for want of
time or opportunity.
We support gentlewomen of birth
and education by selling just such
goods for them.
Won't you help us in this noble
work by buying of us.
THIS 18 NOT A CHARITY. IT IS BUSINESS.
The goods we sell have the merit
of worth—first, exclusive design, good
materials, and perhaps it is a satis
faction to know that they are made
by Ladies in clean and congenial sur
roundings, instead of sweat shops, tene
ments and reformatory institutions.
You can help maintain LADIES
who need assistance by buying the
output of this establishment.

that ever wore a suit on the Warren
football team will leave this city [today
for New York, where he will fill the
position as clerk in the Hotel Vondo.
While in that city he will also take a
course at the American School of Acting.
Mears, during the past year, has trav
eled with several opera companies and
his 6weet baritone voice won him great
applause wherever he appeared.
As Willard expects to make a living
as an actor and aB his talents in this line
are very good, a course at a school where
acting is taught will, no doubt, do a
great deal to help him along in his

Beaneaters clinched their claims to the
championship Tuesday by defeating the
Washingtons. The Orioles are sure of
second place, no matter what way the
tide goes. Cincinnati cannot lose third
place, nor can the Clevelands be pushed
out of fourth place.
The Chicagos are almost certain of fin
ishing in their present position, fifth
place. The Quakers and Giants may
possibly change places. Joyce's men
will have to win their five remaining
games while the Phillies are winning
four out of six from Brooklyn in order
to tie for Sixth place. The rest of the
clubs will finish as they now stand.
Delaware and St. John to Meet.
The Delaware College football team is
working hard under tbe tutorship of St.
John's team at the Union street grounds
on Friday afternoon.
The Delaware boys are in much better
shape than when they played Swarth
more, they having lined up only once
against the scrub before that game.
Last year St. John beat with great
difficulty with a score of 12 to 4. This
year .Delaware's team is much stronger
while St. John's is about the same team
that played last year.
This promises to be the hardest and
most interesting game of the season.
