J. W. Baker, Wm. Stovall and Mr.
Woodcon were going home from the.
laundry late Friday evening when
they saw the feet of a man protruding
from tho side door of Hartli'i clothing

vacancy where a pane of glass should
have been. The feet were in egress
and were followed by the legs aud
body of a man who crawled out upon
the sidewalk. Iu answer to question

the man said lie was hunting a place

far as the stieet corner, when the in
truder in the store started np Sixth

to End the marshal. At the Lnyton

near the Union restaurant alley.

action aud sought to prove an alibi by

Statement Submitted For
tember Court Term.
I'o the Honorable Circuit Court:
We, the grnnd jury duly empanelled
for the September, 1004 term of the
above entitled court, respectfully sub
mit this as tho report of our official
We have diligently inquired into
all alleged crimes that have been
brought to our attention aud have re
turned true bills in all cases where
wo felt that tho evidence justified and
have declined to indict in all others.
Wo have diligently inquired Into
tho murder of Florence Chapiu or
Mrs. Wells, whichever her true name
may be and have been unable to find
sullicient evidence to warrant us in
returning an indictment against any
one for Hint crime. We respectfully
suggest that tho seriousness of the
criuio deserves tho strong support of
the state officers by the county court
in the matter of the apprehension of
the guilty party.
We have examined the county poor
house and liavo visited aud conversed
with the inmates thereof aud wo find
the place neatly kept and the inmates
thereof ueat and generally satisfied.
Wo suggest however, that tho water
supply is not good, the only supply
being surface water which Ib muddy
and real.y unfit for nso.
The limited time at our disposal
has prevented us from making any
expert examination of tho records aud
tiles of the various conuty officials,
but tho lusjiectiou which we have
bceii enabled to make justifies as iu
reporting that we find th records
neatly kept and in good order and
wo have found all of the county
ollicial.i courteous and obliging. We
have examined tho county jail and
report that its sanitary conditions are
not tho best. This could be partly
remedied by a new floor. Wo would
also suggi'st that because of tlio con
strui'tion of tho jail and its general
condition, it is liable to bo consumed
hy fire and so long as it remains iu its
present condition, some one ought
to sleep thcro of nights while pris
uerB are confined therein.

A Sniff of Autumn
is in the air , . . .
An ounce of prevention, you know, is
worth a pound of cure, and if you are a
man of prudent judgment you will provide
yourself with clothing of heavier weight
and take no chance of catching a Fall cold
trying to get a little longer wear out of
your thin and seedy Summer Suit.
We are now displaying; some particularly
snappy Fall styles for Men selected from
the lest productions of Schloss Bros. & Co.
the Fine Clothes Makers, whose celebrated
ready-to-wear clothing has raised the stand
ard in Men's Apparel.
You will find fit aud grace in cut, quality
in fabric and honest workmanship in the
making. Add to these the fact that you
bave seen nothing like these clothes, and
you have exclusiveness. Take these points
altogether, and you have the foundation
for the fame of superiority enjoyed by
Schloss HandTai lored Clothing.
