With Ca. t.ain Allan's Blue Sox

r " . In the beginning the Antelopes took
to pasture with the following line-up
(per order) : Waddell ; Capt. Allen-
Connors; Briggs-Alexander; Faircloth;
Ilawes: Pace-Connors; Capt. Allen;
Ex-Capt. Caruthers and Church.
Present date finds the above muster
making good with the exception of one
or two positions where a leakage is
inevitable; while the easting of lots in
the dim future is left absolutely with

the said dope until Capt. Allen wipes a
few of the anomalies out of the clan
A few recruits have priorly been
affiliated, and the same number have
left the field of action and wandered in
to pastures new. Callahan's exit from
second left the position admissible to
Faircloth who has taken it up with
tolerable results. The clan looses a
good man in Briggs, who had a flawless
reputation at first, but was elicited into
the Paved Streets of Industry soon after
the tri-fall of Humboldt. During the
bigger part of the season the place
he left behind him will be held by
Alexander, a big, wholesome-looking
representative of balldom who is rapidly
falling into line and doing extremly
good at the position, as well as making
a spirit-stirring reputation with the
The Antelopes pulled the lid off the
season with the Original Bloomers at

spinning; a melee which had it'i
disastrous results owing to the fact
that the elan, assembling for the first
time, had almost everything else but
practice, anent the lachrymal con
ditionof the celestial country. In
spite of this occurence, however, they
were in a healthy condition, cap-a-pie
for the Humboldt turn-out, and took
all three of the games without giving
the other side so much as a run. The

i ne game at juiton resulted in a
great break-off for the Blue Sox ; but a
few days following the aggregation
added another cluster of scalps to their
belts in a battle royal with Hickman.
The count here was 5 to 1 with the

taking advantage of this splendid offering of fine Linene and Linen Wash Suits. They are
beautifully made and represent the latest styles of the season. We cannot gve detailed de
scriptions, but assure you that you will find the assortment large and will have no trouble in
finding something that will please in every particular. And then the unusual price reductions
on all the garments will make it well worth your while to buy at this store.
Unusual Bargains in Fine
This is positively the greatest millinery offering of the season. We bought 500 sample '
hats at only a fractional part of the original manufacturers' prices, which enables us to name
buying inducements that have heretofore been impossible. These goods represent the very
latest ideas in shapes and trimmings and are without spot or blemish and the range of styles is
so great that you cannot fail in finding just what you want. , . "
A selection from this lot will mean a saving or from one-third to one-half of your money.

great expense the celebrated comedy

DeGroote and Langtry are just off

Marked-Down Prices on Men's and
Women's Tan Low vShoes.
We bought heavily for this season on tan low shoes and find that we are overstocked and
should unload at once, hence this announcement. There is nothing so cool and so consistent
in hot weather dress as a pair of nice tan oxfords, and this sale affords you a splendid oppor
tunity to provide yourself with one or more pairs at particularly economical prices. We offer
you the very choicest picking, of the season's best styles, too, and the assortments are large
and complete, not just a few odds and ends from which no one could find a fit.
