i We Challenge
Competition is Our Best Friend.
Our Inventory Sale is now going on. Furniture Shoppers,
this is your opportunity to save money at our expense. The gen
eral depression in business left our big store crowded to the roof
with new and artistic furniture. Contemplating our usual win
ter business, we contracted for more goods than we are able
to take care of at the present on account, of our overstocked
condition. This simply m?ns that we must dispose of the stock
now on band to make room for the goods now enroute, otherwise
we would be obliged to hire store houses at enormous rents.
Rather than have this evtra expense and pay this excessive rent,
we give the public this opportunity to save a dollar instead of
ns paying it to landlords. Our advice to you is to look every
where and then look here. You will then be honestly convinced
that we produce the farts as represented. It is no trouble to
show goods, whether you purchase or not. Kind and courteous
salesmen to wait upon you when you call. Become a member
ot the satisfied customers club by visiting the big store with
the little prices.

Superintendent Robert B. Lamb of
the institution was able to block the-
proposed escape through the story told
him by Martin Weinlioltz. The ineauil
by which Thaw and the six others,
who were all located in one of the
south wards of the building, were to
get clear from the hospital was
through aid furnished them by one of

that the attendant had furnished flies
and saws to the seven patients and had
himself concealed a blackjack and a
revolver in his room.
A search of the room corroborated
the story, but the attendant denied
knowledge of the matter. He was dis
charged. JUDGE GAYN0R DISOWNS SON
