It long ago seemed as though
shoes could never be better and
never be cheaper , but they are
better now and cheaper now than
they ever were before. The great
every day favorite is our men's
and ladies' shoe. It is as much a
boon to the pocketbook as it is to
the feet. It won't wear you out
to wear it out. You don't need to
take care of it ; it takes care of
itself. It will give you solid com
fort for the simple reason that a
better shoe for knockabout pur
poses has never been produced.
If prices never appealed to you
before , the price of this shoo will ,
.for it costs only 2.50. It will
look nicer and wear longer than
any shoe on earth.

The presence of mind exercised by
Mrs. C. M. Noble last Friday evening ,
doubtless saved the Noble dwelling
from a serious fire. While Alice
Cochran and Norma Noble were play
ing a duet on the piano , a lamp fell
from the instrument into Miss Alice's
lap , whence it was unceremoniously
fired to the carpet. The girls fled
from the scene with all sped , their
vigorous screams bringing Mrs. Noble
to the rescue. The broken burning
lamp was thrown out of doors and

We reproduce about a column of
matter from the Indianola Courier ,
this week , touching upon McCook's
effort to secure the location of one of
the Wesleyan seminaries at this place ,
just to show the possibilities of that
mendaciously slanderous sheet , not as
a matter of news.
The till of A. C. Clyde's saloon , was
tapped on Sunday evening between 8
and 9 o'clock to the tune of about $35.
There have been no arrests , but the
police have pretty well settled cdhvic-
tions as to who are the guilty parties ,
and think the responsibility rests in a
large measure with one employed about
the establishment , as the circumstances
show an intimate knowledge of affairs
about the saloon building.

Andrew Martin , Jr. . of Danbury
Precinctthe Victim of a
Danbuiy precinct was the scene of
an appalling accident , Sunday afternoon ,
resulting in the instant and horrible
death oF Andrew Martin , Jr. , a highly
esteemed young man of that neighbor
hood , "aged 18 years. It transpires that
young Martin and a young man from
Illinois named Chancellor Mastin , who
was visitintrat the home of the deceas
ed , had just returned from a hunting
expedition , and were about to drive
through the home gate , when the fear
ful accident occurred. Coming to the
gate Mastin got out of the
road cart to open the same ,
Martin remaining in the vehicle
and holding the guns. In some way
one of the guns slipped through the
slat bottom of the cart , catching
on the trigger of the gun ,
which was discharged , the terrible
load of shot at such close range enter
ing Martin's face about the left eye ,
literally tearing the top of the unfortu
nate man's head off.
Young Martin's frightful death has
cast a deep shadow of sorrow over that
'Ihe remains were buried at Danbury -
