Such price reducing is nothing short of wonderful is it? Beyond
thatits unprecedented and unmatchable. considering the season. It
encourages immediate buying as no suit offerings evar did.
Encourages" we say, more than that, it demands or compels
buying. Savings of one half on a stylish, seasonable, and needed suit
is far too unusual to resist.
No thrifty, prudent woman whose wardrobe has room for one of
these suits will attempt to resist such opportunities. And we expect
many women will take two or three or even a half a dozen.

P. Rogers of Meacham and a strangsr
workman, named Jim Kay, all three suf
faring terribly from burns inflicted by the
explosion of a can of powder.
Stacy and the ticket agent, Mr. Rogers
and a workman from the construction
crew at Meacham, were unloading cans
of powder from a box car to the
depot platform. In setting one of
them to the platform, it exploded
The consequence, while not fatal to either
of the three men, was that all are burned
in a frightful manner. They rolled them'
selves in the snow to extinguish the Are
which had been ignited in their clothes.
The engineer and assistants loaded
them into the engine and brot them to

wounds. Tne skin was actually burned
off their hands, their faces were black as
coal, some of course which was only smoks
and washsd off. Two finger nails were
blown off Mr. Stacey's hands. The agent
is perhaps burned the most seriously, the
workman being least hurt of any.
At four o'clock all were having their
wounds washed and dressed butthe pains
are still very severe.
No exact details could be secured at the
late hour but it is evident that something
other than the powder was in the can, as
the jar was not sufficient to explode the

A cbugh that is left to "cure itself" is slowly overcome at bast, and there
is apt to be some weakness left to make the next cough come easier.
Newlin's Whits Pine Expectorant is natures's best assistant. It makes
the cure easy, quick and thorough. It is perfectly harmless, and is equally
good for old or young. It doesn't pay to trifle with coughs when you can
buy a remedy on these terms. . . '
Money back if tht remedy fails.
