ous accident occured Saturday night

tion of tho store mid this gave way.
The store building tinned several feet
and the brick veneer fell off. Had this
happened while the men weio at work
during tho day they could have hardly
escaped. The building has been
straightened up and solid pilars will
now prevent any danger in the future.

the many bin gains offered by the

the clti.ons realized wo were offering
them u real bargain.
