GOOD Roady-r.lado CLOTHES for Men
never cost so little money as right today, despite
the high cost of living. Do you believe it?
Come in and we will demonstrate the truth of
the assertion.
Such clothes as our Quality Clothes from $20 to $35 could
not be had at all a few years ago outside the high priced custom
tailor. A suit today at $15 possesses more value than a $20
formerly did, and we are selling suits for $7.50 and $10 that you
could not buy in the times of lGc corn as good as these. Any
way you can figure it you can buy better clothing today for the
money than ever before in your life. Come and see.

Steamer Passes Through Hail of
Ashes Oli Alaskan Shore.
Passengers Nearly Stifled by Fumes
From Volcano and Boat Hurries Fif
ty Miles Out to Ssa for Fresh Air.
Earthquakes Disturb Water.
Seward, Alaska, June 10. Passen
gers oh the mail steamer Dora, which
arrived from the west, after passing
through a hail of ashes from Katnial
volcano, believe that several small
fishing villages on the shores of Shel
ikof strait were destroyed by the erup
tion. The revenue cutter service at
Unalabka has been asked to send as
sistance. The Dora steamed Into the harbor
early, the white covering of ashes giv
ing it the appearance of a phantom
The people on the steamer as it
passed through the falling ashes were
nearly suffocated by poisonous gases.
In Sight of Eruption.
The Dora was in sight of Katmal
when the eruption began and those
on tho vessel witnessed a brilliant
spectacle. It was 1 o'clock in the aft
ernoon and the mountain was In plain
view. Frequently earthquakes disturbed
the water of the strait, when suddenly
a terrific explosion occurred In the
mountain and a great mass of rocks
was thrown into the air. .The first ex
plosion was followed by others in
quirk succession, each seemingly
more terrific than the one preceding.
Soon a steady stream of rocks and
ashes poured from the peak and
spread far over the surrounding coun
try, obscuring the sun and shutting
the troubled mountain from sight.
At 4 o'clock when the Dora was sev
enty miles from the volcano, total
darkness came and ashes began to fall
In thick clouds upon the deck, cover
ing it uith a white layer three Inches
Passengers Become HI.
The stifling atmosphere made the
passengers violently ill. Throughout
the night the Dora steamed through
the dust-laden air, and was rocked by
the earthquakes that lashed the water
while the mountain thundered menac
ingly in the distance.
At S o'clock Friday morning the
Dora having steamed fifty miles out
of the course, clear air was reached
and the passengers were able to
breathe freely again. Looking back,
they could see the column of smoke
and ashes still pouring out of the vol
cano. The Don was engulfed In darkness
again Saturday as It neared Seldovia
and felt Its way carefully to Seward.
The volcanic disturbance Is the most
violent ever recorded In Alaska. It 19
estimated that an area of 300 square
miles, much of It fertile territory, has
been covered to a depth of several
Inches by the volcanic ash.
Volcanoes Still In Action.
Seattle, Wash., June 10. Three
slight earthquake shocks were record
fed on the seismograph at the Unlver
slty of Washington, indicating that the
volcanic disturbance in southwestern
Alaska, which has agitated the Instru
rnents In observatories throughout tne
United States in the last few days,
still lb In progress, but is slowly sub
siding. The volcanic disturbance has com
pletely paralyzed wireless communica
tion In the north, and it Is impossi
ble to get definite information con
cerning conditions on Kodiak, Rasp
berry and Afokniak Islands, the three
most important islands In southwest
ern Alaska.
QLLhe four volcanoes reported Id
eruption, Katmal, long believed ex
tinct, la considered most dangerous,
overlooking, as it does, Shellkof strait,
the strip of water that separates the
islands from the Alaska peninsula.
