ship Denver, received confirmation today
cf the wireless mensage sent last night
from the steamer tit. Louis announcing
that the Denver' crew had been taken
of I and th Denver had been abandoned
1,309 milea tt of New York.
This confirmation came In a wirelea
message from captain Avery' of the Den
ver. The message said that the Denver
bad been . abandoned In a sinking condi
tion and that Captain Avery and hia crew
were aboard the Atlantic transport liner
Manhattan and would reach thla port

the White Star line. The message read
"This afternoon rescued captain and

lean steamer Avtland. , Manhattan ha
r inaliidei-. fifty-six."
The total of persons rescued, a i cording
to the message from the Megantlc' com
mander, is seventy-one.
The Denver sailed for New York from

recently It sailed between this port and
Galveston, and last spring it was utt.'lsed

IT-0RTUNATE man if your dealer can rapplr
ryou wiia b genuine ivlavivix opnng uver
coat, under the actual KunDenheimer trade
name and trade-mark, as exclusively designed
and tailored by this great House.
The KLAYlCLE, as first created and intro
duced hy the House of Kuppenheimer, became at
once the sensation of the overcoat world.
It is the most widely imitated overcoat style in
America there being endless attempts or varia
tions in the wav of copying the style cr the name.
The Kuppenheimer KLAVICLE is a superb coat
as interpreted for Spring, with silk yoke and sleeve
lining and light skeleton treatment inside.
Its peat feature is the absence of all seams
in back and arm-hole. The entire sleeves and
back cut from one piece cf cloth making a per
fect draping, roomy coat that doesn't bind the
arms or shoulders a military idea based upon
the Cavalryman's cape.
It has wide collar and lapel, full soft roll; the
front buttons through. There are outside patch
pockets with flaps.
You must try on this coat to realize how be
coming it is, what a dash it has of its own, and
how it separates itself from mny loose models and
"slip-over" coats offered so generally this Spring.
