Has the actual difference in the
way CLOTHING- put up ever oc
curred to you ? If it has not , a visit to
the various places where clothing is
sold will convince you that there is a
vast , difference between "slop-shop
hand-me-downs" and clothing ( not
things ) made of good material and
nicely put together. Here is where
we have always made a strong point
and the fact that we are selling Men's and Boys' Suits
.and Pants , trimmed , lined and sewed equal to any tailor
made suits , at prices as low , and often lower , than the "slop
shop" stuff explains in itself why we are doing so large a
clothing business. "We have put forth an extra effort this
spring , and you will find our tables loaded down with the
prettiest line of MEN'S , BOYS' AND CHILDREN'S SUITS
to be found on this market , and if you are looking for good ,
honest goods at the lowest prices , we ask you to carefully
inspect this department. And in Hats , Shirts , Suspenders ,
Overalls , Jeans , Pants , SOCKS , Ties , Night Shirts , etc. , we
have just what you want and at a price that will meet your

extremes. A case in point was that of a hand
somely dressed woman who boarded a B. &
M. passenger coach in Central City the other
day , and who upon taking her seat glanced
up and observed over a small apaitment in
one end of the coach the significant sign ,
'Ladies Saloon , " "whereupon she exclaimed :
Here brakeman help me off with my bag
gage. I do not propose to ride on any train
, hat carries a saloon nlnner with it. much less
x saloon for ladies , " and off theladvgot while
he gentlemen in the car broke into an ungal-
ant roar of laughter in which even the ladies
oined with considerable of a titter. All
agreed that it would be strictly in order for

ug severely agitated. Grand Island Inde
Sunday night at 9:30 : o'clock , thirteen miles
east of New Castle , occurred one of the most
unfortunate and saddest accidents that has
ever befallen the Wyoming division. At
; hat time engine 178 in charge of engineer
Wilson , and fireman M. E. Rinehart , was
going on train 45 , when suddenly Con. Zol-
iuger and brakeman Rodgers saw a cloud
of flame and smoke from the engine. The
rain was earned forward by its momentum
until the way car stopepd nearly op
posite where the engine had been , and it was
discovered that the boiler and cab of the en
gine had been torn from the frame and
.hrown . nearly two hundred feet from the
rack. The engine frame and wheels were
not moved from the track , and the tank was
untouched. Engineer Wilson , fireman Rine
hart and brakeman A. E. Woodberry were
all found badly burned and bruised by the
concussion ; the first two fatally. Fireman
linehart was conscious to the last and lived
five hours after the accident. He was down
on the deck of the engine and was terribly
) urned and larcerated. Engineer Wilson
ived till 3:27 Monday aftemoon , but did not
egaiu consciousness. Medical assistance
and the railroad officials left Alliance as soon
is word was received of the accident , but
lothing could be done to save the two men.
kakemanVoodberry was scalded and had
lis spine bruised , but is doing well at home
under the care of Dis. Barr and Houck. The
leceased both carried insurance in the relief
iepartment. Rinehart leaves a wife and
hree children to mourn his loss. No one
eems to know the whereabouts of Wilson's
elatives. The officials have used every
effort to find them without avail. Both of
he dead men were brought to Alliance for
burial. The funeral being conducted by
