Monday about eleven o'clock a hobo
was taken to the office of Dr. J. B.
Martin to have his wounds dressed. He
gave his r.ame as Chas. Burke, of Chi
cago, Illinois. He had purchased some
thing to eat and had gone with his
morsel to the B. & M. yards, when two
other hoboes fell upon him and beat
him severely. He had seven severe
His assailants were placed under ar
rest and taken to the county jail. They
gave their names as John Mercer and
A. L. Fleishar. Thy were bound over
to the district court by Judge M. Ar
rfier. While Dr. J. B. Martin was engaged
in caring for the wounded man, a rep
resentative of the Journal called him
up by 'phone and wanted to know the
details of the .man's injuries. The
Doctor told him that he could not give
the information then.
The Journal's attack on Dr. J. B.
Martin was unwarranted and uncalled
for, and a malicious falsehood, and
shows that the Journal's representa
tive either has but little sense or is a
The Masonic Lodge at its regular

When you buy from uswhether it is some
thing from a substantial clothing manufac
turer or something to sell for less money
you must know all about it at the time of pur
chase in order that our relations with you may
continue to be pleasant. We could not afford
to sell you "a $20 suit of clothes for $9.98"
and later have you learn that it was worth no
more than you paid for it. We carry the
cheaper grades if you must have them, but we
always tell you before buying just what they
are. The values we give in all clothing are
the best that can be obtained anywhere at
any price, and we do not resort to sensational
"cut-price sales" in order to move the goods.
Look at this Omaha style of advertising, and
you will find the same tactics indulged in by
dealers in all the larger cities. We invite a
comparison of the goods at the prices quoted,
feeling absolutely confident of what your
verdict will be:
Strictly hand tailored, made to
sell at $25.00, and well worth it.
Scores of splendid new pat
terns and styles, on
Come in and look at our line at
$12.50 and you will soon be con
vinced that you can save things
beside care fare by staying at
$18 0) to $22.50 suits. Every
imaginable color, best fabrics
and styles, strictly the
best in the land 4 QP

See our $9.50 Suit and you will
come to the conclusion that the
difference of $2.45 is principally
$10 and $12.50 suits, 18 differ
ent styles to select from, the
new weaves and colorings,
matchless at sale n A A
After you have looked pt our
$5.0ii clothes you will begin to
wonder whether that $7.00 suit
was really intended to sell for
$10 and $12.50, or if the advertis
ing was not just a little t-trong.
You cannot obtain better value any place on earth than is here offered. A
cordial invitation is extended to call and examine the goods.

"Where Quality Counts."
At the regular meeting of the Com
mercial Club Tuesday evening Dr.
A. E. Duvissoii nddressed a fair aud
ience cm the subject of Alfalfa. He
gave some very interesting facts as to
the possibilities of this particular crop,
and made various comparisons as to its
commercial value. There is but little
doubt that alfalfa is the most profitable
crop that the farmers can raise, and at
the amo time it greatly improves the
land. An acre of alfalfa will produce
nearly or quite double the amount of
feed that an acre of Corn will produce.
Either hogs or cattle fed on alfalfa are
worth more than those fed exclusively
on corn. Cass county last year had
only si I acres which is a poor showing
for a county so well adapted to this
crop. This county ought to have not
less than 10,000 acres annually of alfalfa.

John RollT, a laborer employed in the
quarries at Cedar Creek, was found
dead in his bed at the boarding house
where he was living Monday night. It
was at first believed that he had com
mitted suicide but the opinion of the
physicians who called is that the cause
of the death was heart disease brought
on by excessive use of alcoholic liquors.
He was a German of about forty-five
years old. It is not known whether he
had relatives living in this country or
