Remains Taken to Hep Old Home
. in Virginia for Final
Resting Place.
Last evening a number of the
students of the High school, at
tired in night shirts and white
masks, started out a few minute
alter 8 o clock to indulge, in a
small-sized night-shirt parade.
going- up and down Main street
and into the different busine:
houses, where they passed
through, giving their yells, and
then took up their visits to the
adjoining stores until a com
plete round of the business
houses were made.. The boys be-
. haved themselves very well and
did not cause anv damage. The
only place where any trouble oc
curred Was al the (Srarnl 'theater,
where they boys attempted., to
force their 'entrance, and Man
ager Shlaes objected, telling the
boys that the theater was crowd -i
ed to the doors and they could
not get in. The "nighl-shirler?
attempted to push their way in
anyway, and the manager was
forced to. push them back, which
caused some of the paraders to
show a spirit of resistance, but
lliey liualiy departed on their way
without any further warlike
demonstrations."" Mr. Shlaes
staled (( Hie reporter for the
Journal that he had no objection
to the boys parading through his
lhalcrs if lliey had not been so
crowded, .'but feared that some
one might get excited and start
a panic, in which someone would
have been injured, and he had
no desire to be responsible for
any accident of this kind. There
is no one who objects to the boys
having their fun, and in all the
places they were not molested
and" did not do anything out of
the way.
Sale Not Very Satisfactory.
The sale of the stock of thor
oughbred Poland-China swine
belonging to the estate of the late
August (Joider, yesterday at the
home in the south part of the
city, attracted quite a number of
buyers, although the animals did
not bring as ?ood a price as they
should. There were some forty
nine sold, which will average
about 30 apiece. One thorough
bred boar was sold to an Iowa
breeder for 133, beinir the highest-priced
animal sold.

"The county jail at Piatt-

"The counlv poor farm of 120
acres in Cass county is well carer

burned down during the summer

Leonard, the little 7-year-old
on of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Born,
residing a few miles southwest
of this city, met with an accident
yesterday afternoon that it was
feared for a time might result in
the loss of the sight of one of his
eyes. I he little boy was playing
around with his schoolmates at
Ihe school house, near the Horn
home, and in running around he
fell into a pile of brushwood,
with the result that a branch
penetrated through the . lower
eyelid and just escaped running
into the eyeball, which would
have caused the loss of the eye
sight. Tin; little lad was taken
to Omaha at once by the fright
ened parents and an eye expert
called lo look after the boy, but
he found that the accident would
not interfere with his eyesight
unless other complications set in.
The fact that Leonard escaped in
Ihe accident without the loss of
his eye will be the cause for
much pleasure lo the friends of
the Born family throughout this
section of the county.

October 0, 1837, in Smyth coun
ty, Virginia, and died Monday,
November 3, 1913, at the honu
of Lee Farris. near Union, Cass
county, Nebraska.
The death of this good old lady
occurred after only about two
weeks of serious illness, al
though her health had been fail
ing gradually for the past two
vears. due principally to her ad
vanced age. During Ihe past few
years she had made her home
with her two daughters, Mrs. C.
F. Harris and Mrs. E. L. Daniel,
near this village. While visitin
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lee
Faris a mile north of here she
became seriously ill, and from
that time she lost strength rapid
ly until the end came on Mon
day. Brief services were held at
Ihe Fans home J uesday morn
ing, conducted by Rev. W. A
Taylor, alter which the remains
were brought to this place for
shipment back to her old home
at Chilhowie, Va., where funeral
services will be held. the re
mains were accompanied from
here by her daughters Mrs. liar
ris and Mrs. Daniel. The pall
bearers here were Y in held Sw an,

C. Hansell. J. D. Uramblet and

The writer had not the. pleas
ure of the acquaintance of tin
deceased, but from the words of
I hose w ho knew her best nom
can doubt her neing a most es
timable lady, one for whom all
her companions had the highest
esteem. Her maiden name was
Mary Emily Faris, and her life
was spent in her native stale un
til a few years ago. She was
married near Ihe place of her
birth, her husband being John
W. Hays, whose death occurred
February 21, 18t3. They were
Ihe parents of three sons and
two daughters, Ihe sons being
deceased, and Ihe two daughters
are Mrs. c. j . Harris and .Mrs. J-.
L. Daniel, both of whom reside
near this village. The deceased
was a good Christum lady, hav
ing been a member of the Bap
tist church the past fifty-live
years, and her inlluence was al
ways tor the happiness and up
building of Ihe communities in
which she lived. The death of
:uch a person is a loss not only
o the immediate family, but to
the society in which her efforts
were for the good ot an. union

IF you think about
. it a minute, you'll
readily see that paying $10
or $12 for a suit of clothes
may really be extravagant,
even wasteful, as compared
with paying $18, $20 or $25.
The $10 or $12 suit
may not be worth
the price in quality and ser
vice; and the $20 suit may
be worth more than the price.
There's another phase of it,
however, quite as important
the $10 suit may be worth
$10 in actual quality, but
buying it may even then be
an extravagance; for many
men ought to wear better clothes than they do. Not because .the clothes are
not worth what they paid for them, but because they're not worth enough.
We want to see you in our good clothes from $18 to $25,
for your economy; we can sell you lower priced clothes if you say so; worth all
we ask. They're not cheaper; just lower priced. But when we advise you to buy
our clothes from $18 to $25, we are really giving you our best judgement as to
what's best for you.
