determination to strike for her altars and

fled. The boy Frish was one of those
who sought safety in flight. . He climbed

SINGLE CORNER OF
T was not the opening of the
republican national convention
at Chicago, neither was It an
attempt of the lovers of Col-
onel Theodore Roosevelt to
get a peek at him, though It
might have been either, from the size
of the crowd that Jammed and pushed
and Jarred Itself in the endeavor to be
there first. It was the opening of the
sale of United States army goods at 14H
Harney street by, W. S. Kirk, who on
Saturday morning began selling thou-
sands of dollars worth of goods that he
has bought from the United States gov
ernment. He Is selling them, at' prices (
far below those that the government paid
for them In many cases one-tenth and
one-twentieth of the actual cost.. ' " ;
Many of the pedple who crowded Into"
the- store yesterday- morning were at
tracted there by the abundance of decor
ations on the exterior of the building,
and by curiosity. They had heard ol
the sale and wanted to see Just what
Mr. Kirk was offering to the public. But
nearly tvery one of them w.oi trans- .
formed from a sightseer into a buyer,
for the many countless number of bar
gains are such that they not only attract
attention, and cause comment (favorable)
but 'they also make one see the great
values that are given for the amazingly

They were taken from certain army

priced at only 10 cents. Right besldd the
sets of buttons is a placque containing
the United States coat-of-arms. It Is
only 35 cents- On the wall is a hanging

of Immense beauty.
One looks at a leather contrivance and
wonders what it is. He takes hold and
examines It, and then Is told that It is
a carbine scabbard that was used at
such and such a period by the army.
Right near it Is a long sword of wood.
What could that have been used for?

THE EYE CAN 8EJ
They surely do not supply the wives of
soldier and sailors with dresses. 1 do
not see how this can be advertised as a
sale of government article when petti
coats are Included."
Then the manager of the sale explained
to this doubting one and showed him
that the petticoats were made of five
abdominal bands that the soldiers wear.
The factory of Mr. Kirk in Philadelphia
takes these abdominal bands and con
vene them Into the best wearing rettl
coats that one could wish for. They not
only wear well, but they also look very
good and arc representative of the finest
kind of workmanship.
The shop certainly will delight people

Girls will be delighted with the little pil

Handed Down for Years.
