THE great rush of people to take tdvantfge ol our extraordinary offer in uncalled for suits and overcoat, has been marvelous from the very beginning.
The popularity of these suits has become so great that we have been compelled to open correspondence with over one hundred f the largest Tail
oring concerns throughout the country in order to get these suits fast enough to supply the enormous demand. These are not misfits, but suits
made to order on which deposits have been paid and which for unkown reasons remained uncalled for. Such things happen to every Tailoring establish
establishment. It is by advertising and making a feature of selling these suits that they find it more advantageous to consign them to w than to attempt
to dispose of them from their own establishments.

The light hoiwe tender Caotu, with
tho memlier of the board left Oreen
port, I.. I., at B o'clock and ran to Nw
Suffolk, when' the Holland ha been
ulnee June. Tho memlxT of the board
then went Into the Holland a h lay
nt tho dock and minutely exnmlned
the mechii'ilHin and working.
A J o'clock '.leir-Admlral Koger
and hi fellow rubbers lxarded the
alani yw;hf Joephlne. There were
also on board several representative
nnd guet of the Holland company.
Tho Joephlno then loft for the mn

Tho requirement for the test a laid
down by the board ww. (a) Have
three torpedoe In place; (b) Have all
arrangement .nad. for discharging
torpedoe without delay; (c) Bo pre
pared to Ire torpedcx at full speed
when ubmerged o well a when at
full speed on urfnce; (d) Have crew
exerclBcd by actual practice o na to
bo oble to make a required submerged
rJn nnd Bteer a straight course.
In order to make a trial submerged
the board could note the adherence to
the course or any deviation from It.
The cnurMp waa by compass due
north and south, the starting point
being the south end.
When all was ready the Holland
snnk to the depih of ten feet, while
going at full .tpeed, which waa attained
ulmost Immediately. Thl left the tips
of the I'ng pole on her deck exposed
Hut for these It would haw been Itn-
possible to have traced the boat, as
while submerged she mode no distur
bance upon the surface. She traveled
at tho rate of eight knots an hour, mak-
lug the distance from start to turning
point In nine and one half minutes.
Arriving at the end of the mile she
Bhot to the surface, her turret
coming Into view. Ten seconds later
she had again disappeared. Within
the ten seconds she corrected her course
having deviated only seventy fewt from
the true course and fired a regulation
Whitehead torpedo, weighing Slfl
pounds, which went spinning off to
ward the tnrgeit RoO yards away. Slean
while, as the deadly missile whirled
through on It course, the Holland
swung around and started back. She
the sam? time as tho outward run and
wus equally successful.
Commander Emory and Captain
Lewis then left the Holland, and Com
mander Capp and Lieutenant Hen
derson entered the boat and another
trip wa undertaken. The result were
the same, except that Instead of rising
to the surface to discharge tho mUsle,
tho Holland fired It while submerged.
Almost before the torpedo reached the
surface, the Holland had turned par
tially about, and by the time tho nils
sle was well on Its Journey the Hol
land was on lis way back.
The mlssle was well thrown, ami
came so near the ling pole used as a
target that It was evident that no ves
sel could have escaped If In the path
of the torpedo. The boat shot to the
surface between the starting Hags.
At no time was there any error of
mo r than a few feet In calculation as
to th? distance traveled. The range
and course Is taken by the steersman
as the boat sinks. While submerged
he cannot see anything and has to cal
culate, as he (lies along. Just how fnr
the boat travels each second, so as to
know when to rise at the end of the
given distance. While doing this he
must steer the compass course in new
at the moment of diving.
The Holland then ran a quarter of
a mile on the surface, and at spe
test. Thl rate, attained was eight
knots, but It was claimed she would
would have passed this speed had the
whole nillo bewn run. The object of
the short test, however, waa to see
how quickly she got under way.
The Holland then headed for New
Suffolk, where she was tied up. She
will remain at that place until next
week, wher. she will be taken to
Washington. She will probably travel
by the Inslds route, although Captain
Lowe has sought Mr. Holland's per'
mission to go by the outside course,

The trials were held today, with
