auddenly atepped from behind the

the ball striking him in the neck and
producing almost instant death.
It is not thought tbat robbery waa
the motive for the murder. Officer

SENTENCE PUT OFF
IN LAND GASES
The chances are that if everybody
knew the exact facts about our Holi
day line, how carefully selected and
how fair in price, we would not have
half enough to go around.
We have been fortunate in being
able to buy our holiday stock close,
the selling will be just as close. We
want you to see our line before asssrt
ments are broken. - In the start we
will have a variety of goods not sold
elsewhere; these are , apt to be , the
goods you want.
Make sure of themby buying early
Fair prices will last to the end.
