We wonder if there is anyone in all the world who does not love the Springtime? . This morning when we opened our doors we were
greeted by two robins, who were hopping and chirping in the yard. We forget all about the little coating of snow on the walks, threw our heads
back and just sniffed in the exhilarating ozone. Our decorator must have felt it also for he immediately started to put on the store's Spring dress.
So when you come to see us on Saturday you'll find us all lit up. The clematis may seem to you a new variety, but in these days of BurbanMsm
you will not doubt the correctness of flower and foliage, we feel sure.

How a 13-year-old girl, riding a, saddle-

played the part of a matador In a real
bull fight, overcame the enraged animal
and saved the life of a man on a farm
near Brighton. 111., became known a
short time ago.
The heroine was Ruth Deatherage,
The man whose life she saved was Rich
ard Lyons, a farmhand on tha Deatherage
land. Lyons waa attempting to drive the
bull into a barn when the animal became
enraged and attacked him. Lyons was
thrown to the ground and the bull began
to trample and gore him.
Ruth and her mother. Mrs. W. A.
Peatherage, heard Lyons' cries for help.
Throwing only a bridle on the head of her
favorite horse and grabbing a pitchfork,
Ruth ruahed to the rescue. Two or three
times she circled around the bull, seeking
the advantage of position. Then she rode
directly at hi head andyuck. Two of
the pitchfork tynea pierced the bull's

animal and the battle was over. Peoria
