A $5,000 Stock of Clothing- and a $2,500 Stock of Carpets to be sold at prices that even the
present low tariff rate does not justify. Two years ago we put in a Clothing Department as
an experiment, thinking- that Clothing- could be successfully retailed from a General Stock, but
we found that we were mistaken, and we are now ready to

The rooms in Wind Cave lay in
tiers, over one another," says George
A. Stabler, the postmaster at Wind
Cave, in writing to a friend in Iowa.
We have found eight tiers so far, and
the cav is like an eizht-story house,
each tier of chambers having a differ
ent fortnitiou. We have also been
about oA feet beneath the surLaee. We
compart the caie to a huge sponge,
two nail-is mi u are and Zh) feet high, ail
dried out. We Lave formations found
in no pla? in th world outside of
Wind Cave. One is the box work that
you saw. There is no geological name
for it, ami it is so named on account
of its resemblance to boxes. The
Rride'a chamber is the first room, and
is ICS feet br'lo'iv the entrauce. Th
first large room is the postofllce, beinc
about :i.u)x-r-4) feet, with a beautiful
dome eighty feet high. The room
takes it., name from the box formation
on the ceiling, also on the sides, where
visitors leave their cards. The Red
hall has a very red formation, and tht
White room is perfectly white. The
Devil's Lookout is a crevice sixty feet
high, and very narrow. The scenery
deGes the grandest scenery in Switzer
land for beauty, while the tjueen's
drawing room is hung with curtains
and tapestry and decorated fine euough
for the most exacting queen. The
Methodist church is a beautiful cham
ber, with domes and arches and sup
porting pillars, while all is covered
with the most delicate box work. This
room was dedicated by Dr. Ilaucher,
president of RUck Hills' college, and
now is a regular chapel. It is one mile
from the entrance, and about 240 feet
benath. Musicsounds delightful, and
nearly all parties sing a hymn or two
before leaving the room. Capital hall
is the largest room on the short route,
containing about three-quarters of an
acre, with the ceiling sixty feet high.
Two large lamps light each end, and
the effect is grand. In the Amphi
theater we lind the Masonic goat, also
the scenes and music of Midway Flais
ance. In Turtle pass we step over an
immense turtle. Fallen Flats are two
miles from the entrance, and S50 feet
beneath, being in the sixth tier of
chambers. From here we ascend Cliff
Chambers Delight, a distance of sixty
feet in Five Points. W. C. T. U, hall
was dedicated by Mrs. Fauna Kram
mer, president of the South Dakota
Woman's Christain Temperance union
The Garden of Eden is then found, two
and one-half miles from the entrance,
and about 175 feet beneath. The room
contains about half an acre, and is
made up of domes, beutif ul alcoves and
fairy-like grottos, all covered and
coated with a pure white and pink
frost work, some being so delicate that
a breath would destroy it. This is, or
would be, paradise for fairies, and one
always goes away with a feeling that
he ha had enough. The Corkscrew
path -Rinds around and down ovrr 100
feet to Dante's Inferno, which is a
dark and deep rocky pit, and one can
almo'it imagine seeing the Imp of
Darkneps at the bottom."

In eeveral state legislatures there
are bills pending to cut down the rates
charged on Pullman cars. The legisla

should not be compelled to pay from

pass it will require the company to re

come under the ban of stft legisla

The decision of Judge Caldwell in
the garnishee cases of the employes of
the Santa Fe, is more far reaching
than would at first be supposed. His
decision that the employes cannot be
garnished will apply to Union Pacific
as well as Santa Fe employes. The.
Union Pacific being in the hands of re
ceivers makes it the property of the
United States court, and, therefore,
an employe of the United States court
employes of government, state, county
or municipal authorities cannot le gar

point that Judge Caldwell has brought
