Owing to the fa( t that the sea
son has been so backward we
have our big store full of new
spring" goods which must be
moved, including a full line of
spring millinery and dozens and
dozens of Wooltex ann Sunshine
suits, skirts and spring coats and
princess dresses. We anticipated
a big business in these lines and
would have had it had the season
been more propitious. But now
Jt we shall move them by price-cut
ting. Commencing Saturday,
April 24, a discount of 25 per cent
will be given on everything in the
millinery and cloak department
and summer dress goods. Notice
the illustration. A suit to delight
the heart of any girl a three-piece Wooltex, and though it
may be her only suit yet she can be appropriately dressed all
the time and have the many changes that a girl likes. The
simple style and perfect tailoring make it suitable for all oc
casions. The guimpe provides for innumerable changes.
Think what 25 per cent discount means a &20 suit for
V $15, a $16 suit for $12. A $6 hat for $4.50, a $4 hat for $3.
A recent belated arrival has placed our clothing in the
front rank with the best stocks in this section of the country.
We can more than duplicate Omaha or Lincoln prices on
Gent's Furnishings and Shoes.

WOULD FUSE, WITH THE ORIENT.
Writer Declares That Out of Action
Would Come a Better Race.
In many respects the orientals are
our antithesis, and If our ideals, prin
ciples, and institutions are more
heneflclent. we are under obligation
io present them. There should be no
collision between the Mongol and the
Anglo-Saxon races, but Instead there
should be a fusion. Out of this fusion
there should emerge a better race.
We can learn much from the various
people of the orient which would be
beneficial to ourselves, and while we
receive from them we are able to
contribute tho one great principle of
tho Anglo-Saxon race, namely, liberty.
Every race that has com Into power
and prominence has stood for somo
great, overmastering Idea. That for
which wc stand and which Is the great
touchstone of our great national life 1
liberty. It la for our nation, as the
great western wing of tho Anglo-Saxon
race, to Join In the extension of this
principle, nnd also to hear the mes
sage of peace. Mason S. Stone, Com
missioner of Education of Vermont, in

All Gcmlc'.des Not Good.
Of late tinny countries have besnl
making official tests as to the value ol
germicides. As a result It Is declared
that tho public should be careful in thu
selection of a disinfectant, for thers
are In the market many which have,
no germicidal action whatever. Prof j
Hewlett, as a result of his tests, say j
that not only Is the public defrauded,!
but there Is also a grave danger Intro-!
duced when a person believed he wat
using something which would tatally
destroy germs and wis thereby lulled
Into a semte of security when in reali
ty no sense of security was justified.
He claims that for many years past
sanitary authorities have been living
In a fool's paradise vainly imaglnim;
that the fluids they have been sprink
ling around have been dealing dea'h
and destruction to all germs and bac
terial intruders. His advice is that
before buying a germicldo the public
Bhould Insist on receiving with It a
copy of a report ou its value by a bac
teriologist or properly qualified medi
cal man of standing.

Inspecting the work of restoring Union
square to its former beauty, now that
the little St. Francis has been re

Experiment! with New Safety Device
for Fcggy Weather.
The United States government is ex
v?rlmenting In San Francisco hay
with a safety device for foggy weather
which Is remarkable In '.he uniqueness
of Its Idea. It is nothing less 'han a
fog buoy which will make no njise of
Its own, but which will be expected to
catch the sound waves of a vessel'
whistle and echo them back across tho
Tho buoy, or structure, Is construct
ed of ccrrugated iron sheeting, placed
on piles, and built in three wings
placed at different angles. Each win,;
Is 32 foet square.
The idea was given birth accidental
ly. There has always been much
trouble In the upper part of San Fran
cisco bay because the Bhore lights
cannot be seen when tho weather is
bad. Tllots and skippers began to no
tice, however, bow clearly the corru
gated steel warehouses around ncnlcla
returned the sound of their whistles,
and for some time have been guiding
their way along by the echoes. Th
government is confident that the new
buoys will act In the same manner.
