We are doing an elegant business; our sales from March ist to ntfw are nearly three times as much as the best March and April we ever had since we went into Ladies' Suits and Jackets. Of course we feel that there must be some good cause for this, and we can only attribute it to the fact that the ladies have investigated and "shopped," and our stock has won on its merits. The buying-public all know that we have the finest assortment of tasty, well made garments shown in either city, but have found out also that our That is, that there is no (so-called) "special prioe" named in any store but goods of equal value, with a wider range of selection, are shown by us every day at equally as low prices. Otherwise, we have goods for the masses at prices they can afford, and yet garments that are different from those in the average department stores and far more satisfactory to a lady who is at all posted as to how goods should be made. Again, we feel sure that our Suits and Jackets are delivered with a far better fit (so important to a woman) than is usual. We know we have made purchasers of a great many ladies this spring *ho never wore a Ready-to- Wear Suit before, and we are prepared to show any woman that at prices of $15.00, $20.00, $25.00, $3 5 .0f and £50. 00 we can save her 'money (as against bothering to have her suit made), besides giving far better results. Perhaps you have noticed our elegant window displays this spring thousands have— and commented upon the beautiful Waists and Skirts. Well, come in and price them! You will be surprised to see how reasonable they are— they are "swell" designs- --and yet no more money than the other stores are asking for goods with no style and little taste in their get-up. Our Waists and Skirts are right in style and cheap in price. 90-101 E. Sixth St. ? St. Paul. GENERAL IN SKIRTS WIFE OF THE COMMANDER OF THE TRANSVAAL TROOPS A SOLDIER ACCOMPANIES HEX HUSBAND From the Days of Chilrthoiod Mrs. Jonbert Has Been AccuHtomed to the Alarms of War, and in Jlauy Trying Occasions Han Shown Great Courage English Defeat at Majolia Dne to Her. Since the days of Cleopatra the women to actually take part in the conduct of the wars of their respective countries have been few. At the present day there is only one woman, says Woman's Life, who, with any justice, can be termed "a general in petticoats," and that is Mrs. Joubert, wife of Gen. Joubert, comman der-in-chief of the Transvaal forces. Mrs. Joubert lias accompanied her husband in all the wars he has undertaken. Her cheery face, almost hidden from view under the folds of a huge black capple, has become such a familiar sight with the burghers that the incongruity of one woman walking in and out among an armed force of several thousand men seems to be a commonplace. A HEAL VETERAN. From the days of her earliest childhood Mrs. Joubert has been used to war's alarms. She can load and fire a gun with almost es much skill as "Slim Piet" (Anglice, "Clever Piet") himself, and on many occasions has shown the greatest courage. It is not generally known that it was to her that the great defeat of the Eng lish at Majuba was greatly due. The general considered the position unassail able, but Mrs. Joubert, her eyes afire with patriotism, urged the attack, event ually conquering the scruples of her hus band and the other commandants. The result is known. Mrs. Joubert' s last appearance at a war occurred during the recent Magato land campaign, at the extreme north of the Transvaal. An artillery, burgher and native force of nearly 10,000 men were dispatched to the front to subdue the rebel chief, M'Pefu, intrenched in a series of rocky fastnesses backed by the Limpopo. Notwithstanding what was feared would be the bloody nature of the war, the heat— over 100 degrees in the shade — and the fever, the plucky woman joined the general a week or two after his arrival at the Hoofd Lager, accom panied only by two or three little Kaffir maids. Finding Gen. Joubert In an anything but comfortable tent, she routed him out, erected a tent of her own,- and Installed him amid all the comforts of home. What was more, she reconstructed the general'. 1 ? mess arrangements and cooked his meals with her own hands. The wife of the commanding general peeling po tatoes was an ordinary sight any day during the campaign. KNOWS NO FEAR. On one occasion during the war the news came into camp that the general had been taken ill thirty miles away in the midst of a country full of hostile na tives and deadly with malaria. Without hesitation Mrs. Joubert made prepara tions to go and join her husband, and there is little doubt that she would have accomplished her purpose had not more reassuring news come to hand. The war came to an early close, owing to the military genius of Gen. Joubert, and. it is not too much to pay, his better half. The plans of the campaign from the time Mrs. Joubert arrived till the camp was struck were talked over at her dinner table, her sound advice and almost unequaled knowledge of Kaffir warfare being held in high esteem. Although such a warrior, Mrs. Joubert Is a true woman. There is nothing mas culine about either her appearance or ' manner. T'nlike most Dutch Afrikander women, she is slim, especially when com pared with the robust propohtiona of Gen. Piet Joubert. Wonderfully active for her 60 years and over, she can accom plish as much hard work In an hour as town-bred women would in a week. Needless to say, she is immensely popu lar among the burghers. To the sick she is ever ready to lend assistance, and many a dying man has blessed her min istrations. When not on the warpath Mrs. Joubert is singularly retiring. Many Pretorlans have never seen her, although she lives REMOVED ENTIRELY BY THE MISSES A BOOM TO ILL WOMEN, HARMLESS AND SU3E.
