to a climux. Marshal Mclnness
at Sitka; hia substitute, liowan, was
sitting- in an all-night lunch room,
when a man with blood running down

shouted for tome one to give him a
"gun," and K.jwan, viho wa a square
man, explaining that he was acting
marahal, asked hiiu what his trouble
was. The wounded man Excitedly
told hia story. He had been rubbed
of hia money, and had been beaten
on the head when he had protested
to the bartender of the Theater
Kovul, where the robbery had oc
curred. Finally be had left, prom
ising, however, to get a gun and
square accounts. "Come with me, and
I will investigate thia matter," said
Itowan, and he helped the man along,
for he wax quite feeble from the lose
of blood. When they got to the the
ater the wounded man, opened the
door, nt the same time making a
Krmhta-nce of drawing a pisUrl from
his "gun-pocket." Fay, the bartender,
had been expecting him. Quick aa a
flash he pulled his gun and Cred,
dropping the poor fellow dead in his
tracks. Kowan, his re-olver in his

only to be shot down by the desper

The year in automobiles hss been a
good one, but even with its increase of
about ino per cent, in the manufacture,
the business was not entirely gratify
ing to manufacturers.. At the outset
the makers looked for tremendous
sales, but with the unsettled condi
tion in business, generally due to de
clining values, many purchasers held
back. Prices of autos, however, were
well held throughout the year, and Tn
some instances advanced. The auto
mobile is not a novelty, allowing a
wide margin of profit to the maker,
aa 4t is essential that all parts of the
machinery included in its construction
be of equal merit, which prevents in
ferior productions and keeps prices
The demand for pleasure vehicles
represented only about 21 per cent, of
the total increase In Die output dur
ing Uis yiar, which indicates their
growing popularity. The striking
growth was in the output of delivery
nnd truck autns. One of the features
that developed during the year was the
formation of several bus and truck
companies for the purposj of hand
ling country passengers and farm
prohiel. lo and from towns. It has
developed that this business iz a suc
cess, and will eventually expand to
vast proportions. The export' demand,
has also grown mnt riaKy, und the
American make of every desrription is
going to all parts of the world, rvin

Itiley's ninldtioii early in life wan to

a good deal. It is said that when he
began uirct icing out on tho front

closed the doors and windows, no
matter how hot It might be. hut that
may be a slander. At any rate, liilcy
wanted to be a violinist, aud was

Don't Endanger Your Life
By riding a tin frame Bicycle. Ride a
Kacyclc, Stearns, Crescent, Crawford, B. & II.
Special, or Spaulding
And you will be in the lead from start to finish. These wheels
weigh flora 22 to 26 pounds, aud are constructed of the best material
obtainable. We sold over too Crescents last year and but one frame
proved defective. The Racycle is warranted for one year. The
Stearns will be made by the Crescent people, and will be the same
fine piece of mechanism as usual. The Crawford aud B & H Spec
ial will be greatly improved and are perfect beauties. The Spaul
ding is a new one in this place but is one of the leading wheels in
the East, and Is fully warranted.
I sell for cash or on installments, and take old wheels in part
payment, I equip any of the above wheels with any make of
Tires, Handle Bars, Saddles or pedals, with or without Coaster
Brakes or Cushion Frames.
