But how low can we make the price, is the
question we 'ask ourselves when marking our
goods for sale. That's what makes ours an
ever-panding business, it's a potent advertiser;
it tells the story through the purse in thousands
of homes, only to be retold in countless others
by appreciative money savers.

before buying elsewhere.
WHY IS IT
' That every day our store is filled with buyers
from every part of the city, regardless of distance?
-4- There must be some reason. People especially
ladies don't go out of their way to buy unless
there is a reason.
IT IS BECAUSE we have established a reputation for abso
lutely fresh goods especially in the line of table
i delicacies, and our customers are sure of a
superior article and then the prices are right.

an artistically colored, well drawn
wall paper. One may get along
with very little furniture and few
draperies, and yet have the room
wear a comfortable and home-like
appearance, if only the wall paper
is warm and rich in effect. It's

"I practiced law once in Silverton,
Cola," said one of the passengers in
the amokiug room of tbe Pullman, "and
had a caao that struck me as a model
exhibition of faithfulness. A Swede
was mall carrier over the pass to tbe
other side of the range. It was not a
long trip, but it was a severe one, made
on foot and with tbe danger in winter
from heavy snows added to Its diffi
culty. Andrew carried the mail for a
year, then one day he failed to reach
borne. There were valuable letters in
bis sack, and the inference that he had
decamped was strong. On the night he
should have come into Silverton his
brother, fresh from Soandinavia and
nnable to speak English, got off the
stage. As county attorney I had to
break Ihe news to the boy and stood by
while he wept
"Rewards were offered for Andrew,
and I sent out parties to search the pass,
but to do effect. A miner claimed to
have seen him a week later in Leadville,
bnt we got no more trace of him. The
brother refused to believe that Andrew
had done wrong and spent his days
tramping tbe canyams searching for his
brother's body. Ws tried to get him to
go to work, but he did not yield until
by bis shortness of funds be was starved

AN ANECDOTE OF LINCOLN.
He Mearared Height With Miner la a
In the course of an artiole in St
Nioholas Mary Lillian Hen relates tbe
following characteristic anecdote of
' 4 Once While ee si way-to-Washiog-ton
as president the train stopped a lit
tle time in the town of Alleghany, Pa.
Around the station a great crowd gath
ered, eager to see the new president.
They shouted and cheered until Lincoln
had to appear on the rear platform of
bis car. He bowed and smiled, but tbe
orowfi was so noisy he did not try to
speak to them.
Very near to the platform stood a
miner, wearing a red shirt and blue
overalls and carrying a dinner paiL
Like the rest, be had stopped hoping to
see Mr. Lincoln. The workman was al
mbst a giant in size and towered head
and shoulders above the crowd.
Uo doubt be had heard that Lincoln
also was very tall, and, encouraged by
the friendly faoe, the workman sudden
ly waved his bare arm above his head
and called out:
"Hi, there, Abe Lincoln! I'm taller
than you yes, a sight taller I"
This loud speech silenced the crowd
by its boldness, and a laugh arose. But
Mr. Lincoln, leaning forward with a
good humored smile, said quietly:
"My man, I doubt it in fact, I'm
sure I am the taller. However, come up
and let's measure. "
The crowd made way and the workman
climbed to tbe platform and stood back
to back with tbe president eleot Each
put up a hand to see whose head over
topped. Evidently Mr. Lincoln' was the
victor, for with a smile of satisfaction
he turned and offered bis hand to his
beaten rival, saying cordially:
"I thought you were mistaken and 1
was right, but I wished to be sure and
to have you satisfied. However, we are
friends anyway, aren't we?"
Grasping the outstretched hand in a
vigorous grip the workman replied:
"Yes, Abe Lincoln as long as I
Value of the Efg la Sickneee.
The value of egg albumen as food in
certain diseased conditions is pointed
out by Dr. C. E. Boynton. When fever
is present and appetite is nil, he says,
when we want an aseptio article of
diet, the white of an egg raw serves
both as food and medicine. The way to
give it is to drain off the albumen from
an opening about half an inch in diam
eter at the small end of the egg, the
yolk remaining inside tbe shell. Add a
little salt to this and direct tbe patient
to swallow it' Bepeat every hour or
two. In typhoid fever this mode of feed
ing materially helps us in carrying out
an antiseptic plan of treatment. Fur
thermore, the albumen to a certain ex
tent may antidote the toxines of tbe
disease. Patients may at first rebel at
tbe idea of eating a "raw" egg, bnt the
quickness with which it goes down
without the yolk proves it to be less
disagreeable than Ibey supposed, and
they are very ready to take a second
dose. Pacific Medical JouruaL

, Electrlo Bitters.
Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gener
ally needed in the Spring, when the
languid exhausted feeling prevails, when
the liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is lelt. A
prompt use of this medicine has often
averted long and perhaps fatal bilious
fevers. No medicine will act more
surely in counteracting and freeing Ihe
system from the malarial poison. Head
ache, Indigestion, Constipation, Diz
tineas yield to Electric Bittern. Only
