9 Paying for People who buy goods from year to year without looking around and investiga- ting are paying for prejudice. Prejudice is expensive. We never object to having our custom- ers investigate the merits of other stores. The oftener they investigate the more firmly they become convinced that ours is the store that gives the best values for the money. We ask you to investigate—investigate our store, investigate other stores, in- vestigate all of them—and then you will come to us.

HIS DRAMATIC ALIBI. f. It Cleared the Accused, but Furnished an Odd 8equel. A highly respectable gentleman arrived at York one evening with luggage and dined well, went to bed early, rose in good time and had a substantial breakfast. After this meal he casually asked the landlord if there was anything of special in- terest in York. "The assizes are on, but I do not know if there-is any- thing particularly interesting in the list," was the response. "Thanks," drawled the stranger. "I'll look in if I happen to pass the court and 6ee." He did look in and heard a fol- lower of Dick Turpin in the dock, charged with highway robbery, pleading his innocence vehemently to a stolid judge and jury, who, with firm faces, did not look as if they placed much credence in the pris- oner's profession of innocence. Sud- denly the prisoner caught sight of the stranger, who had strolled in from the hotel out of curiosity. "Here, thank God, is some one who can prove my innocenceI" cried the prisoner, po...

> ► PUBLIC RIDICULE. At One Tim* It Was the Common Pun< ishment For Criminals. It is the problem of all ages to make the punishment fit the crime, but they seem to have come nearer its solution in Plantagenet times than they ever were after the intro- duction of flogging. When burglary meant the total ruin of the man who kept his whole fortune in the house the burglar was hanged. But in the same period public ridicule served as a punish ment for most crimes, and the man who sold bad meat was placel in the pillory and his bad meat mirn ed to windward of him; the vintner who sold bad wine was forced to drink some of it, and the rest was poured over his head. For more seri- ous offenses the criminal had to walk along Cheapside bareheaded, dressed only in a shirt and carrying a wax taper, escorted by the may- or's sergeants. The result was that law and or- der were maintained far better than when men became brutalized by the horrible floggings of Georgian times. Punishments became...

, : m §% i© ¡¡IP i HEfe M ' ' TRAGIC COINCIDENCE. And the Climax of a Woman's Return Trip to Her Home. A New York woman had a curi- ous and tragic crperience, one that seems more like a grewsome page from French fiction than the plain recital of fact. This woman started out with her husband to accompany him part way on a businpss trip he was taking to a southern city. It was arranged that she should stop to visit some friends at a point about halfway on the journey and after a two days' stay should proceed and rejoin her husband at his destination and re- turn with him. She made her vis; and when she reached the town where she had expected to meet her husband found that he was not at the hotel where he had been stop- ping, but had left hurriedly for New York the da)\ before. She waited long enough to send ,tele- grams to her husband's office and to he had arrived and to receive a neg- ative answer from each place. Concluding that he had been un- able to reach her by telegraph while ...

When rivers cease to flow down stream, And collicky babies cease to scream. When the acorns in autumA cease to fall, Then he will be governor instead of Ball.

Here she found them in full con- sultation, and, taking a seat at a table, she listened to their conver- sation for a time. After awhile she- addressed the leader, saying: '1 hear that you intend to play a trick upon some one. I am very fond of a little practical joke myself and should be glad if you would allow me to join you on this occasion.' " 'With pleasure,' was the reply. 'We intend to hiss an opera singer off the stage this evening.' . " 'Indeed! And of w...

9 9 HUNTING THE CHAMOIS. Swift and Strong, These Wily Alpine Animals Are Hard to Get. In spring the hair of the chamois has the color of the deer, in autumn it turns dark brown, and in winter almost bJack. Then the flocks move down from their very high pasture grounds toward the woody regions, where they find both food and shel- ter Under the broad branches of old pines, which keep the ground under- neath free from snow. But no soon- er has the snow melted far enough to allow tnem sufficient food above the timber line than they are off to return to their favorite abode, the high, inaccessible Alpine pastures. There they live together in flocks of five to twenty, most gayly, as appears from their playing, sham fighting and mer^y jumps. Meantime they never fail to mount a guard, mostly an elderly doe. 11 seems that these are fitter for this-duty than the bucks, prob- ably because of their greater care- fulness owing Jo their motherhood. Their scent is so acute that they detect a man a...
