The sad news of the death of J. A.
Clements of film wood, was received
here yesterday. He died at Rock
Springs, Mo., where he had gone for
treatment. His remains will be brought,
home for burial.
"Bert" Clements, as he was popular
ly known, was born and reared to man
hood in Cass county. When a mere
boy he commenced to learn the printer's
trade and newspaper business. And
for about fifteen yiars he was 'editor
and owner of the Elnnvood Leader-Echo.
As a newspaper man he always made
the columns of his paper speak for de
cency and the best interests of his fel
low man. His paper made its impress
upon the community where he worked,
and always on the side of right and de
cency and good government.
He was a good man and a capable
writer. We numbered him among our
best personal friends. He was about
thirty-five years of age, and a brother
of County Coroner Clements.
His brother and family have the sym
pathy of a ho: t of friends who with
them mourn the loss of so good a man
and brother. C,
the score remained a tie when Hav. lock 1
left the fidd after disputing a gn u.ul
rule in the first half of j the ninch, two .
men being out at the tiirn.

The Main Point
In any commercial transaction is an equitable ex
change of values. While we may differ on the
tariff and may have directly opposite views on the
financial situation w hen it comes to buying clothes,
we all want as much as our money will purchase
anywhere. That's the way we buy, and that's the
way you can buy if you do your trading at our store.
Look over these three items and see if they are not
the best values you have seen offered by any house.
A special Lot 3419, one of the new sand tans,
with olive stripe. Genuine Sicilian lining. Full
peg trousers. Hand made button holes, hand felled
collar. All inter lining cold water shrunk. A suit
that if you paid $25 for it you would get your
money's worth. If you will call for this line of suits
by above lot number you can buy it for $15.
Hinh. Wickwlr. Co.
Lot 3422. An extra special. This suit is made from the finest Scotch Cheviot in a
handsome dtsign of olive and gray mixture. A suit that will always look good until the last
minute of wear. A hand made suit throughout silk sewed and steam shrunk. In fact one of
our Quality Suits worth $23. If you call for this line by above lot number, it's yours for $18.
We quote you here a suit lot 337G a beautiful light gray, broad shoulder, elegantly made
suit that you will pay $20 for in any city store, and if you call for this lot number its yours
for $10. The best proof is to come and see them.
Our line of Quality Clothes is superb. The prices range from $20 to f 33, and nowhere
can better values be obtained.

Much Rhetoric and Little P.usi
n03 Characterized Session.
The regular meeting of the city coun- j
cil w as held Monday evening. A con- i
siderub'.c amount of rhetorical clap-!
trap was indulged in by two or three of j
the saloons -Steimker, especially, be
ing long on oratory with but little to
say-rbut outt-ide of ordering a few
minor repair jobs in the street depart
ment, but little business was done.
Dwyer introduced an ordinance pro
hibiting the distribution about the city
of free samples of patent medicine and
the advertising literature aceompan
ing same. Steimker here worked off a
littlu of his oratory in offering a mo
tion that the matter be referred back
to the judiciary committee. Dwyer ex
plained that the measure had just come
from the judiciary committee, and of
fered an amendment that the ordi
nance be placed on its first reading.

the Third ward was most potent and
Dwjer must continue to take his medi

weeks at least.
Superior oratory downed Dwyer
agaii when he attempted to secure the
adoption of a resolution lowering the
grauV at the intersection of Vine ami
Seventh streets, the object being to se
cure better drainage. The street com
mittee was granted further time to
consider the matter, nor would the
council instruct it complete its "in
vestigations" in the next two weeks in
order to report at the next meeting.
The judiciary committee had another
ordinance relative to the dumping of
of rubbish in the creeks on Chicago
and Washington avenues. On a motion
by Newman this was referred back to
the judiciary committee to look the
matter up, and see what they're going
to do about It."
