Well to are you anyhow?
We are feeling pretty good just now, had a good spring and summer trade, but then its a little
quiet just a, present, couldn't expect anything else, all the farmers busy, working sixteen hours a day, and
other people at the coast eating clams, makes things quiet for store folks, but its all in a lifetime and we
are satisfied. Come in when you are in town, we are getting lots of new goods now, look them over and
see how you like our newly arranged store. Our prices are so low you can't stumble over them.
Don't sunburn yourself when we sell good
harvest hats for 5 cents each.
We also have a good line of Crash hats.
We have placed 1130 pairs of Hvcn'G
iTG'W SliOCC on our shelves for
We sell them for $1.00 to $5.00 a pair.
THE WEST SIDE
THURSDAY, AUGUST 1, 1901.
Some Church IVciillnrlllcs.
In the village of East Aurora
there are Beven preachers on salar
ies of from $100 to $1)00 each a year
Among the village churches there
is more or less strife. The lires of
hate are often respectably hanked,
but the embers mnolJer, and now
and again tho flame bursts out.
The churches are all in competition
with each other rivalry is rife,
and the spirit of tho Master is
smoothered in a scrimmage to raise
the wind. Chicken pie socials,
poverty parties, gueBses as to the
number of pieces in a bed quilt,
fairs, maple sugar soirees, cat pro
pagation, and all tho usual round
of petty, pious blackmail is resort
ed to in order to make up the defi
cit. And some years ago we tried
the plan at one of our churches of
having a dozen pretty young
women take off their shoes and
stockings and stand behind a cur
tain that loft expoped only their
pedals. Then we paid 10 cents
each, passed by, and made guesses
as to the owner of tho underpin
ning. The man who made tho
highest number of correct guesses,
and he could guoss as often as he
wished by paying a dime, received
a prize. 1 only mentioned tins to
show to what straits country chur
ches are often put to rpise money to
carry on the good work. Elbert
Hubbard in The Independent.
Considering Sir Thomas Lipton's
sportsmanslike behavior one could
almost wish that he might lift that
cup. But what's the use of wishing?

The Alabama Constitutional Con
vention has agreed on a provision
making it tho duty of the Governor
when a sheriff. allows a prisoner in
his custody to bo lynched, to insti
tute impeachment proccodingsagnin
stthe officer, and to suspend him on
pending trial. Alabama seems to
bo in earnest. This isthefirstreally
adequate measure against lynching
yet adopted in any state.
The country has been sho ked by
the immense number of railroad
calamities during the past fow
months, attended by alarming loss
of life, and largely through inexcu
sable carelessness. This is all the
more wonderful from tho fact that
at no timo in thoir history havo tho
railroad companies taken so many
precautions to have their force reli
able as they have taken of late
years. Tho strictest rules of tem
perance havo been enforced every
where, and a system of notices and
signals has been established that
would seem to warrant the utmost
feeling of security, but tho frequent
lapses of discipline and the 1 fatali
ties resulting therefrom are strong
reminders that man's greatest eff
orts and achievements must always
remain finite, limited, prescribed.
The men controlling tho modern
means of travel have a torriblo re
sponsibility and it is little wonder
that there are some disasters.
- President McKinley has pardon
ed or commuted the sentences of 31
bank convicts, and President Cleve
land showed mercy to 41. Most of
them however, were small culprits;
the big thieves when caught and
convicted, are almost never pardoned.
We carry the largest seock of thest good!
to be found, in black, blue and checks at 40
cents to $1.00.
Next week we open up 130 dozen work
gloves, all sizes, shapes and prices.
We arc having such a large sale on our
25 cent work shirts, for summer wear that we
We carry 35, 40, 45, 50, C5 and 75 cent
We have a large stock of the best jars and
If you buy your jar rubbers from us, you
get the best make for 5 cents a dozen, sold
elsewhere for 10 cents.

Oii( Iti'ul Moruiiil School.
The State Normal School at Mon
mouth comes much nearer than
any other so called normal schools
to deserving the name it bears.
This is duo to its age, and to the
facts that it was the lirst institution
to be taken under tho wing of tho
state, and has received more state
aid than any other, it is also due
to Principal P. L. Campbell to say
without intending any inference
derogatory toother principals to bo
drawn that lie is a man of much
ability, untiring energy and unusal
adaptivenoss to such work.
Tho Monmouth Normal pchool
was founded ninteen year ago, and
was first recognized by the Htato as
such in 1.S83. In 1801 the state
took tho properly over, and since
then it luiB been a full-fledged eta to
institution. It now boasts of quite
an elaborato but altogether prac
tical curriculum, including an effi
cient and very useful manual train
During its existance the Mon
mouth school has graduated 5G3
persons, ot whom about iw are
now engaged in teaching. It is
noticablo that the students, of
whom there were 187 in all the
past year, come from all parts of
the stale, so that, more than any
other of these schools, it is in reality
a state institution.
The state would havo been wise to
make tho school an even better and
greater normal school than it is,:
one unexcelled in any state, sup
porting it liberally and refusing to
recognize or support any other such
school, at least for some years to
come. Evening Telegram.
