Talk About Diamonds
Their brilliant glitter scarce
outrivals the polish you can put
on a Murzluffshoe. Good leather,
well-tanned leather, that's the
reason. It does more than thine
it wears, it tits, it "feels pood"
whether you walk across the
street or across the continent.
It's a shiner, a stayer, a soother.
Costs money V Of course not
as much as you'd think, though.
I'ut one on and give its tongue a
chance to talk. You'll do the
talking after you've worn a pair
and we'll sell a lot more.

I In t Death Came to the t'hllti'H IClif
Today at lO O'llotk Tlie Mother
Alno Itadlv l: uriKil A HiK
The home of August Itichtor, night
watch rn in at the .-hops, was thrown in
inou. nir.g lnt evening over the death
of their bright little three-year-old
daughter, Emma. L-st night about 7
o'clock Emma, with the other children
of the h ' UM-hoM and hiiiio neighbor
ch.ldren, h td built a little bonfire of
straw and weeds in the dooryar-d near
t lie hoe. The other children were
carrying little bits of straw to keep
the lire going while Emma was pok
iig at tbc burning mass with a stick.
A gust f wit d whipped the child's
drcj-s over the lire and instantly she
wa wrapped in li.iiucs. The screams
of the fated child and her companions
brought the mother to the scene, who
attempted to ave lier li'.tle one by re
moving the clothing. "JJnek" Neligh,
who was ;ns.-ii;g the house, seeing the
child's preuicaiiicnt, teok oil his coat,
v. rapped it about h -r and smothered
the llames, not, however, before the
clot h ing had been nearly l.iurned oil
ami the body burned ii'.most to a crisp.
The De.-h hunj from tin: little arms in
shreds, the face burned almost beyond
recognition ai d the was badly burned
intci nally from inhaling the llames.
Emma was carried into the house by
tenJer h ; nds at:d medical aid sum
moned. Dr. SchildKnecht, on arriving
at the heme, realized at once that
she was beyond till human power to
t.avo, and directed his efforts to the
relief of her sufferings as far as possi
ble until death would come to give her
relief. During the night she was al
ternately rational and delirious.
Sometimes she would talk of her burn
ing clothes, at othe rs she would call
cheerfully to her companions as she
was wont to do in her childish play,
while again her scre tins were fairly
heartrending. The agonied parents
u niched over the little suffeter and
ten lei ly ministered to her till the end
came, at 10 o'clock this morning.
In trying to temove the clothing
from the little girl the mother's hands
and face and neck we! e b;.dly burned,
and she will be unable to attend to her
household duties for many days.
The funeral will occur tomorrow
Wednesday at 2 o'clock, from the
family residence on Lincoln avenue,
sou 'h west of the shops.
