If OF IN I NAPLES, Italy.—The hor- rors accompanying the earthquake, fire and lidal wave that devastated Sic- ily and Calabria almost defy description. Now that it is possible to obtain coherent accounts from the few that escaped from the stricken district with their lives—many were for a time without the light of reason—it i3 realized that certainly not for 20 centuries—per- haps never—have such scenes been enacted on the earth. One of the first of the survivors that reached the steamship Therapie the day following the catastrophe thus described his experiences: "I was asleep when the first shock awoke me. I lit my lamp, but all was quiet, and I turned to sleep again. Suddenly fresh shocks occurred, vio- lent and terrifying. I arose quickly but the house was swaying and my door was jammed. 1 tore the sheets from the bed and made a rope and lowered myself from the window to the street.

It helps one to figure out the whys and the wherefores; have you ever asked yourself why it is that this store dominates in the merchandising circles of this country?

There is a reason* It is because this store satisfies, because we sell none but the best it is possible to procure for a specified sum. Because our prices are lower on the same qualities as the logical re' c ult of a greater purchasing power. Are you a patron of this store?
