Our boys' clothing ia not thrown together in an effort to produce something as cheaply as possible, but is most carefully made, so as to produce a garment as good aa can be made at a given price. Almost all our boys' clothing has the pants made with the crotch seams taped and double sewed, so aa to do away with all possibility of ripping. They also have double seats and double knees. The coats and vests are also made up in a most thorough and substan tial manner, and for style and fit our goods have no eqnal. If you buy your boys'clothing of us, your parse will have that "fall feeling," a moat desirable quality; whereas, if you throw away your money for aome of the trash other dealers have the nerve to offer you, your purse will suffer of chronic emptiness. THE FAIR i > i \ i i i i i i LEWISTON'S ONE-PRICE STORE Badly frighUnad. A number of boys were out fishing along Bear creek, near Kendrick, when one: fell into the water. His comrades ran away to get an ax to eût a pole to rescue him. When they returned young Kirkendall was dead in water ahallow enough to be waded.

The annual meeting of the grand camp of Modern Woodmen is now in session in St. Paul. The report of the'Head Con sul shows a membership of 630,000, with a total insurance of more than one billion dollars. The local lodge here ia in flourishing condition. The Kettenbach Grain Co, is preparing to erect a large warehouse cut of the city along the N. P. tracks. JULY THE FOURTH Citizens in the Vicinity of Lewiston are Wide Awake. THE SPIRIT OF THE FATHERS Still Live* in the Heart* of the People—Where They Will Pub licly Celebrate. Not since the Declaration of Inde pendence was made has there been a time when the American people have bad greater occasion to renew their faith in the blessings of constitutional govern ment. It is truly a year in which we may well contemplate our nation's great ness, the causes which have led to its greatness, aud resolve that nothing shall ever swerve us from perpetuating the constitution as written aud adopted. The people of Lewiston will have 110 public celebration. But a member of of private parties will be made up. Others will go to nearby town to enjoy the day. The prosperous town of Peck is out with a large red poster telling of their preparations for that day. The day will conclude with an entertainment in the evening. Rev. Mr. Beach delivers the oration. The people in the vicinity of Harpster advertise their event in red, white and blue. All kinds of sports, with speaking and aiuging in the day time. At night fireworks and a grand ball will end the celebration. Lawyer Nugent of Grange ville is the orator. At Elk City, so a red, white and blue poster says, there will be speaking aud sports of all kinds with a fine dance in the evening. The principal event will be a rock drilling contest for which $200 cash prize is offered. At Nezperce, never behind in anything, the day will be an event long to be re membered, Hon. I. N. Smith will de liver the oration. Anvils will make noise all day and into the stillness of starry night. There are horse races with good pursea, and purses for bicyclists, sprinters and good guessers. Two grand theatri cal performances, afternoon and evening. Up at Asotin there will be an old fashioned Fourth. The people up there are preparing for either rain or shine, and to make the visitors feel that they are' the beat entertainers on earth. Speaking, dancing, and sports until one will be glad to quit are on the program. Genesee and Tumalum are to celebrate July 4th. Tumalum ia a red hot little place over in Washington, where the people know how to have a good time, Hon. Charles S. Voorheea, of Spokane will deliver the oration Jnly 4 at Grange ville. He ia a son of the illustrious Indiana statesman, D. W. Voorheea. and like his noted father, is a great speaker. The Right Track. Co-operation is constantly coming more and more into evidence among the retail grocers of this country. A number of prominent grocers of Chicago have organized and incorporated what will be known as the Chicago Grocers' exchange, The members of the exchange are in business on the west side and have or ganized for the purpose of pooling their purchases in order to buy on an equality with the department 'stores and price cutters. Herein lies a bint which may be of value to retailers generally in so lution of the department store evil. The chief object of the exchange is the pur chase of goods in large quantities for the saving affected thereby. Leading staple articles will be bought in car lots and distributed among the members of the exchange at prices lower than indi viduals can buy tveu the same quanti ties. This is essentially an age of co-op eration aad ot business concentration. especially in the United States. If gro cers are to keep up with the procession they must learn to act together. "I11 uniou there is strength." We are glad to note these evidences of business asso ciation and co-operation among the retail ers, for, doubtless, this will he one ol the great factors which will largely assist them in solving the many questions which are coming up before them and the many perils which are confronting them ill these days of industrial transfor mation.—New West Trade. THE WINDY CIRCUS MAN Will Tomorrow Erect His City of Snow White Tents in Lewiston. The circus is old as time, and, like wine, improves with old age. It found a soft place in the heart of the old man who today totters along supported by a cane, and though scores of years separate him from his youth, and many important events, and names of his little school mates have been forgotten; though there is no picture on memory's walls of his first golden haired sweet heart, and even the day upon which the wedding bells sounded upon his ears is among the lost, he will be able to tell all about the loug trip out along a dusty road hours before the golden sunburst became resplendent in the eastern sky, when he went "out to meet the circus." Tomorrow some little boy will see his first circus, and it will live in his mem ory until death. Every circus that comes will find him an interested spectator at the unloading. The parade, with its gaily caparisoned horses, its infernal old caliope and superb brass band, aud rep resentations from mythology will have its same irresistable charm. He will go tomorrow with papa; some other time by himself, then with his sweet heart, aud with wife. Aud at last will be seen on the highest seat—a man with silvery hair, and a half score of grand children about him who will drink red lemonade, feed the animals peanuts, aud live in a veritable heaven on earth, just as grand pa did years and years ago. So the American circus can never lose popularity. Each generation adds its complement to its patrons. The same old animals, the same spangled riders, vaulters, contortionists may be there. But the circus is ever new. Tomorrow there will be the same gen tlemanly agents passing through the audience with tickets to the concert, just 'one hour before the big show closes," and it will take place on an elevated platform, and the living wonders drawn from every clime, and taken front every water and will positively be seen. Then, too, the old clown will sing a truly up to-date song, and give the audience chance to secure a first-class musical education and a collection of songs suf ficient to overstock heaven's own choirs ters, all for the small sum of ten cents, The jokes of ancient Egypt revised and up-to-date will be thrown in. It makes but little difference what in conveniences may arise, or how much people kick, declaring "that's the last circus for me," they will be there just the same, unless death intervenes, and en joy it all. Without the circus life would be a long dreary waste. It costs hundreds of dol lars to visit Africa where the lion lives. The circus gives one a chance to see life from every clime for 50 cents. Who will kick on spending 50 cents to see exactly the same sights be would see if he were to visit the jungles of Africa or other lauds? Besides, he saves himself the awful danger of destruction either from poiaonoua reptiles, savage beasts or ma ligant fevers. Now just turn over the pages of your memory tomorrow and see if this is not your idea of a circus. The writer knows it ia as true as holy writ of himself, so far in life, and be will be one among tbe thousands who will help feed the lions and pay tbe salary of "the old clown. Selah! Aged Veteran Passes Away. Mark Hobart, aged 73, brother of Henry Hobart, died last Friday night at about 11 o'clock. Deceased lived on American ridge for a number of years and came over Friday ~on a visit to his people who live near Mobler. Arriving there near dusk he partook of a hearty tapper and excepting the natural wear! nets of a long ride, was apparently good health. However at about eleven o'clock at night he took suddenly sick and in lean than fifteen minutes was dead man, having succumbed to heart failure. He wot buried Sunday at tbe Nezperce cemetry.—Nezperce Herald. ALL IN SIGHT let so Is What the San Fran cisco Army Thefts Amount to. BOLD MERCHANTS ADVERTISE GOODS for Sale Belonging to the Govern ment-Cuba Accepts—Butchers on a Strike. San Francisco, June 12.— General Sliafter and Colonel Maus, inspector-gen eral of the department of California, and the federal grand jury are investigating many reports of fraud committed in the commissary branch of the armv service in this city. That the reports seem to be based on something more substantial than idle rumors is evidenced by tbe dis closures following the arrest of Loui* Abram and Son. dealers in sedônd hand clothing. For two or three years the government has been systematically robbed of cloth ing aud provisions until the loss has reached nearly a million dollars. Several thousand dollars worth of goods were recovered, and the large steal of 200,000 pounds of grain is yet to he uncovered. Havana, June 12—The Platt anieud meut lias been accepted by the constitu tional convention. The butchers in San Francisco are out on a strike. Over 1000 men laid down their tools because the uniou card was not displayed iu union shops, as required by the taws of the Meat Cutters' associa tion. New York, June 15—The Herald to morrow will say of the machinists' strike aud the National Metal Trades' associa tion's recent action. "At the headquarters of the striking machinists in this city yesterday a cable was received from the Amalgamated So ciety of Engineers in London promising financial aid. This society is the strong est trade's union iu the world, and is said to have over (8,000,000 in its treasury. The American Federation of Labor will tax ita two million members ten cents each for the striking machinists." Chicago, June 12.—The intense heat here resulted in seven prostrations. A severe thunder storm caused much dam age in the city. Of tect is of all at a Getting Better. Washington, June 12. —Dr. Rixey, on leaving the White House tonight after his usual late call, said: "Mrs. McKinley is getting along very nicely. Her improvement continues steadily. The heat is not affecting her materially." Believe in Temperance. Tacoma, June 12. —The grand lodge of Masons today rescinded the resolution I A Perfect Form j IS A THING OF BEAUTY AND A JOY FOREVER The result la obtainable by usina the SAHLIN... The FASHION adopted two years ago recognizing negro masonry. Another attempt was made to let down the bars on the liquor question so that Masons could engage in tbe saloon business, but it was almost unaniniouslv voted down. IDAHO'S NEW STATE PRISON Stone and Iron Nearly Completed—Rooms For 400 Prisoners. When the plans as designed by Archi tect Tourtelotte are fully carried out Idaho will have one of the best cell buildings in the United States. When it considered that the expense for labor will he largely saved through the work of the convicts, and that the material is secured entirely iu the stoue quarry within the penitentiary grouuds, tbe wisdom of the authorities in making these improvements is evident. The cell room in the small buildings now in use is all utilized and there is already a need for more amt better accommodations. The new cell house will be sufficient to furnish room for about 400 prisoners, or at least three times the number now con fined in the penitentiary. Those who have viewed the building during its construction have generally admired its plan and arrangement and are impiessed with ita big size, 40x182 feet in the clear. The foundation con sists of large stones, 4 1 j feet wide by from 4 to 6 feet long aud 3 feet thick, with rubble stone upon tile footing 3 ü feet wide and 2 feet high. This is brought a little above the surface of the ground aud the walls are here commenced, con sisting of good and solid dressed stone and built 2J-4 feet thick, with windows and doors at proper places, with steel grates on all tbe windows. The walls when completed will be 33 feet high above the surface, and they are now com pleted up to about 30 feet. There is yet much work to be done in building the inside walls, which will be of brick and stone, but much of this work will wait until it is decided which kind of cell will be used. One of the most ornamental and useful features of the new structure will be a huge tower over 100 feet in height, from which a commanding, view of tbe whole country will be gained. A prisoner in at tempting to escape would be in full view from this high altitude, and it is needless to say that effective work could be done with a rifle iu the unerring hands of a guard.—Boise News. City Election. The city election Tuesday called forth the average interest of former years. In some instances the contest waxed ex ceedingly warm, but such was the char acter of the opposing friends that no un* pleasant recollections of the event re. main. The only real contest was for city mar shal between John Roos, prisent incum bent, and William Schuldt, night police men. These gentlemen, with their many friends, aroused interest not exceeded by* the presidential campaign last fall. Tbe result showed that the force behind Mr. Schuldt was too great for his worthy op ponent, he receiving 483 votes to 311 for Mr. Roos. > In the aldermanic contests the citizens' candidates were successful by decisive majorities. The following is tbe list of candidate aud the vote as cast: Mayor, J. H. Skin ner, 627; treasurer, S. Leslie Thompson, 601; marshal, William Schuldt, 483; J. P. Roos, 311. Councilmen—First ward—C. A. Hastings, 192; Second ward—Prank Cole, 206; George H. Lake, 129; Third ward—George Frost, 84, I. H. Brae bears, 58. IF I Wer« Jum.
