These days about suits being made to
order from $10 up. Simon & Mosen
felder for the past seasons have had sev- ,
eral of th; best of these
Tailoring Agencies
who make these cheap dothes "to or
der," and we have them still. But do
not for a minute think that you are going
to get anything better than our own make
of goods; not much. These wholesale
tailors want something for their Jabor so
does the agent and the result b that
you pay SI S for a suit to order (and no
better 'fit nor workmanship) for what we
charge you $10. But some people are
always ready to pay for experience.

It was supposed that the much-
desired Tony Sunday was landed in
Davenport baturday afternoon.
But the police over there are good
guessers, for the man claims to bo
Tony's brother. Both are wanted
for cowardly offenses.
lony bundav is the man who was
suspected of having done away with
one Martens, with whose wife he was
living at Cordova last year, until
the latter materialised some time after
with the explanation that he had
been in the north. Sunday is
also charged with having outraged
martens- iz-year- 11 danghter, and
it is for this offense that the Rock
Island county authorities are after
him. He had skipped out in com
