Nelson,   British Columbia, Monday Evening, Jani,arv i4,   Ig01.
Eleventh  Year
KASLO to have
A SMELTER
Gooderham & Blackstock Syndicate May Erect One
There.
Ore From the Syndicate's
Wet and Dry Ore Properties to Be Treated.
(SPECIAL, TO THE MINEIt.)
Kaslo, B. C, Jan. 14.���The present
condition of the silver-lead mining.ou
account of the difficulty of finding a
market for all the ore that ca�� be
produced, lead some of Kaslo's leading spirits to endeavor to have a
smelter established here. A site was
secured on the bay where the sampling works are built. It was generally understood that considerable
eastern capital was behind tbe scheme
and it is now understood that the
Oooderham-Blackstock Syndicate will
finance it. This means that the
smelter will surely be built and it
will do a great deal to advance Kaslo. Tbe Gooderhara-Blackstock Syndicate has many dry ore propositions
near Whitewater and from them
enough dry ore to smelt the wet ore
from the rich St. Eugene can be secured. The syndicate can therefore
be thoroughly Independent of other
mines. However, customs work
will be done and when development
of the wet ore propositions in the
Lardo country becomes more extensive the smelter will be taxed to its
utmost to treat all tho ore It can secure. Mining men are confident that
enough dry ore to keep the smelter
running can be mined near the town
and there is no danger of there being
any difficulty, as exists now, in keeping up tbe supply of wet ore.
Definite announcement of the syndicates intentions is expected to be
made shortly.
ronized until the soft weather interfered with the sport and now all
pray for frost. '
TEXADA  ISLAND   TO BOOM.
Big Iron Mountain to   Be   Worked at
Once.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B.C., Jan. 14.���The Union Iron Works, San Francisco, have
leased their big iron mountain, two
miles long and half mile wide, on
Texada Island, to tbe Pittsburg Iron
Works Syndicate for 10 years on a royalty basis. The aew firm is to ship
loo tons a day the first yeai, 300 tons
a day the second year and 800 tons a
day the next eight years. Texada
Island is 35 miles from Vancouver. It
will boom now. A railway will be
built four miles to deep water, and
operations will commence the 1st Of
February.
THEY MAY CLASH.
C, P. B. and Coast to   Kootenay Boad
May Have Trouble.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, -B. C, Jan. 14.��� The
"C. P. E. are surveying for a railway
between Vancouver and Chllllwack
under a revived charter. Surveyors
are now working near Abbotsford.
Presumably the C. P. B. will advance
the projected road to a stage where it
may make it interesting for theCoast-
Kootenay road which must take a
similar route.
ONE FOOL SHERIFF.
THE HARRIS GROUP.
Mrs. J. E. Harris  of Kaslo Successful
in Her Negotiations.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Kaslo, B. C, Jan. 14.���Kaslo citizens are feeling very much pleased
over the news that Mrs. J. 10, Harris
has been so successful in consummating a deal for the Harris group of
claims on White Grouse Mountain, as
this means the opening up and development of one of the best gold-copper
districts yet discovered, and many
Kasloltes are interested in properties
contiguous to this group. Mrs. Harris' many friends rejoice with her in
ber well deserved success. In the
face of much opposition of various
kinds she has persevered In her determination to demonstrate to capitalists the wonderful possibilities of the
White Grouse District. Great indignation Is shown here at the conduct
of one person in trying to hinder the
completion ot the negotiations. Mrs.
Harris has demonstrated to all what
pluck and straightforward dealing can
do even in a mining deal, when
backed by tbe respect and regard of
her fellow citizens, and in her ability
as a business woman has outstripped
most of the opposite sex.
J. J. Hill's projected railroad from
Crawford Bay and the branch from
Kitchener of the C. P. R. will both
tap this region and afford excellent
transportation facilities.
Indiscreet Words Lead to an Unpleasant Incident.
Seattle, Wash., Jan. 14.���Npeelal
correspondence of The Post-Intelligencer from Dawson, tells of an International disturbance which arose
there at a Christmas dinner. Major
E. C. Wood, commander of the Yukon
Mounted Police, gave a banquet to
which were invited a number ot the
most prominent government officials
in Dawson. The only American was
E. A. Mizner, resident manager of tbe
Alaska Commercial Company. Every
thing went smoothly until it came to
Sheriff Filbeck's turn to respond to
toast to the "Government Officials.
The sheriff spoke disparagingly of
Americans living in tbe country and
his speech had a climax when he said
that "It is to be regretted that all
Americans of the Yukon country are
of the Soapy Smith kind." Mizner at
once jumped to his feet with tbe
words, "Am I to be insulted," and
threw his glass of wine in the sheriff's face. He then walked out of tbe
banquet hall. The others in the party
made every effort to reconcile Mr.
Mizner and the sheriff, who, lealizing
his error, made an elaborate apology.
Major Wood is doing everything in
his power to effect a  reconciliation.

A CONTEST   AT KASLO.
More    Municipal    Excitement   There
Than in Nelson.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.)
Kaslo, 1). C, Jun. 12.���Municipal
polities here are beginning to boll,
two candidates for mayor having
offered themselves, Messrs. G. A Carl-
ion and Geo. T. Kune. Both are
���Confident of election. Some sixteen
candidates are out for aldermen.

trouble over an electric light bill and
have closed up Indefinitely.
Mr. J. H. Jeffreys, Messrs. Gooderham & Blaokstcck's representative
here, leaves shortly for  the East with
Bride   to  Receive   Nearly
Millions in Securities.
New York, Jan. 14���A special to the
World from Newport, R. I., says:
It has been given out unofficially
by a close friend of the Vanderbilt
and French families that Alfred Vanderbilt has settled on Elsie French as
her marriage portion one-tenth of his
enormous fortune���namely 83,700,000.
This great dowry is given to her, according to this authority, uot in cash,
but in selected bonds and stocks 'rom
that part of the estate of the late
Cornelius Vanderbilt which wus apportioned to Alfred, the chosen son
and chief heir. As the late Cornelius
Vanderbilt's fortune was invested in
securities paying four per cent; the
bride will have an Income of ,8148,000
a year, or 813,333 a month.
PAYING FOR DAMAGE DONE.
Tacoma, Wash., Jan. 14.���The Chinese viceroys of the Southern Provinces are paying American, English
and French indemnity for destroyed
mission property. The French have
received 82-10,000 for the burning of
Catholic missions in the Canton prefecture. The claims are being paid
with money raised by .special assessment on rich gentry and by the leasing of gambling monopolies.
Rev. William Munroe, of Emmanuel
Church, touched upon a subject in a
sermon yesterday, that will be read
with a great deal of interest by a
great many people. He took for his
text Romans 129: "Whisperers,
backbiters���hatjf ni to God, "and said:
'Whisperers and backbiters are
found everywhere. They may be seen
before the counters in our stores, in
front of the windows in the bank,
In the vestibules of the churches, in
restaurants, on street corners,, in women's clubs and men's clubs. Animated by a love for scandal they have
no taste for healthy news but a surprising avidity for garbage. They
know everything that happens and
much that does not happen. When a
new scandal comes out Longtongue,
Alleyes and Allears go into business
for weeks and upon the capital supplied by one simple incident will keep
a neighborhood in a turmoil for
months. Impelled by a scandal monger's purpose they get husbands and
wives into a quarrel,separate families,
create ill-feeling between people who
were kindly disposed towards each
other and sow tbe seeds of discord
broadcast throughout a community.
The devil does not need to bother
much about a community where there
are one sr two such agents at work.
He can turn bis whole devil's kingdom over to them and the contract
will be well looked after.
"It would be more honorable and
no more destruction, to take a box of
matches in your pocket and an open
razor in your band and go through
the city and see how many homes you
can burn down and how many throats
you can out, than to be a party to the
defamation of anyone's character.
The person who listens is not less to
blame than is the one who talks. An
ancient writer declares that both the
slanderer and the receiver of the slander should be hung up, the one by the
tongue and the other by the ear. The
receiver of stolen goods is as bad as
the thief. j [
"The law of libel makes quick and
sure work of open slander but these
pests of respectable society escape the
fine tooth comb of the l*iw�� Shut
GIFT ''��* 'rom our route of perfidy they immediately start off upon another and
nothing will induce them to desist.
One might as well read the ten commandments to a flock of crows or the
Sermon on the Mount to a flock of
vultures at their prey, The moral
law has no effe ���>. upon their prying
disposition. On they go backbiting
and whispering until homes are whispered into sorrow, young men whispered to destruction, businesses whispered into failure, pure upright individuals whispered into despair.
Alas for these gadabouts, these scandal-mongers, these everlasting sneaks!
I hate the viper brood that labeled
Christ 'one of the vicious class.'
"Can it be that Immortal men and
immortal women can find nothing bet
ter to do than to peddle poisonous
slander. Rather than let the tongue
be the organ of blasphemy, the oigun
of defamation, or the organ of lying,
make It the organ of praise, tho organ of eloquence, the organ of kindness. Remember it is fastened to the
floor of your mouth and you are responsible for the way it wags."
Four
turbances in ManohUria. The cost of
the war to date, sixty-two million
roubles, astonishes the initialed, who
had seen the figures before their publication. The proposal to devote one
hundred and thirty million roubles to
railways in 1001 and not to negotiate
a loan is equally gratifying. This
favorable budget strengthens M. De-
Witt, and It is generally anticipated
that the Czar will recognize his services in some marked degree, possibly
making him Imperial chancellor.
TRAVELLING  IS DANGEROUS.
Chinook Wind   Playing   Havoc  With
Railroads. I
Spokane, Wash., Jan. 14.���Bridges
out, tracks under water, roads impassable, frequent slides, and at least
one fatal accident are results of the
chmo"k wind which has swept the
Pacific northwest for 24 hours. It has
nearly obliteratd the snow which
covered all of eastern Washington and
northern Idaho, It has eaten into the
huge banks of snow on the Cascades
and has so swollen the streams that
every creek ha* grown to the proportions of a river. When the overabundance of water now rushing madly
from the watersheds strikes tbe main
streams there will be floods. In Oregon these   floods have already begun.
Every railroad running into Spokane had trouble last night because of
the melting snow and swollen streams.
Tbe Great Northern does not know
tbe full extent of damage, as all
wires on that system are down east
and west. It is understood, however,
that a small bridge is out near Index,
Wash., there are severe washouts and
slides on the mountains, both Rockies and Cascades, and snowplows and
rotarles are employed at every point
where men and engines are available.
The O. R. & N. Is in serious trouble
along tbe Columbia River, where one
train was sent back to Portland because of a slide. Between Walla
Walla,and Spokane the road is in better shape, but there is danger in the
developments of today. On the Northern Pacific, between Portland and
Globe, on tbe Oregon side, tbe tracks
are reported under water. The Columbia la rising rapidly because of
the great increase of water from tributaries near tbe coast.
Reports from the railroad to Astoria
are that a train west into a ditch
and the engineer was killed. This
road runs along the river bank tbe
entire distance and probably will be
tied up if the river rises much more.
Branch roads into Spokane have had
minor troubles, but seem to be pretty
well prepared to overcome all obstacles of ordinary character.

FATE OF CHARLIE  ROSS.
Was Drowned in East River  by   New
York  Thieves.
Albany, N. Y., Jan. 14.-Senator
Plunkett, of Manhattan, today intro-
puced in the Senate a bill to punish
kidnapping of children under 16 years
of age by fixing the limit of Imprisonment for such an offence at 25 years.
Senator Plunkett said he had faots
in his possesson concerning the abduction of Charlie Ross in 1876 which
had never been   published.   He  said:
"The abductors of Charlie Ross were
New York river thieves. Mosber and
his companion. The wagon in whioh
Ross was carried away was hired in
New York, by Moshw, and driven to
Philadelphia, so as to prevent any
possible discovery of the offenders.
The wagon was driven about thirty
miles out of Philadelphia, and was
there abandoned. Moshor and his
companion, accompanied by their victim, taking passage on the train to
New York.
"Fear kept Charlie Ross quiet. Upon arriving at New York, Boss was
taken on one of Mosher's river craft
oud finally, to prevent detection,
Charlie was thrown overboard in the
bay, after being tied to i,on, so as to
sink and make coming to the surface
impossible.
"The New Yorker who let the horse
and wagon to Mosher never claimed
his property, for fear of being
charged with complicity,
"When Mosher was shot, while attempting to rob the Van Brunt mansion, at Bay Ridge, he attempted to
explain the Chaille Ross affair, but
death came as soon as tbe name passed his lIpB."

hart, of Strathcona's Horse:
Bloomfontein, Dec. 4, 1900.���Strathcona's Horse will be home soon.
They have done well in tbis country
all through the war. The people out
here think they are a holy terror.
Lord Dundonald and General Baden-
Powell wanted them for the South African Constabulary but Colonel Steele
would not let them go. The Government has given several posts to its
members. Johnny Ilirsch has his
discharge from the regiment and is
surveying on the Government Railway. Lieut. Fall is transferred as
lieutenant, to tbe constabulary. Lieut.
Poley of Victoria, second lieutenant
in Royal Artillery; Trooper Pym of
Nelson, second lieutenant in Royal
Artillery; Lieut. McGee of Toronto,
to be major, in commander-in-chief's
bodyguard; Lieut, Kitchin to be second lieutenant in Somerset Light infantry ; Lieut. Benyon of Montreal
to be captain in Royal Artillery;
Lieut, de lu Poer Beresford of Nelson,
to be captain in commander-in-chief's
bedy guard, and to act as A. D. C.

staff; Trooper Armstrong of Kamloops to be lieutenant in Imperial
Yeomanry; Lieut. Wbyte Frayser to
tbe Intelligence department; Trooper
Lord Edward Seymour to be lieutenant in bodyguard; Sergeant Bell of
Vancouver to be lieutenant in bodyguard. Altogether f don't think
Strathcona's have done badly. Of
com>e Beresford has been more fortunate than the rest to jump ftom a
trooper to captain and A. II. C. in
less than a year. Anyway he deserves
it as be has worked hard and has
shown any amount of pluck. Cochrane has been iu the hospital but is
out now with the rest of tbe regiment at Springfontein. Pinder of

SIR JOHN   TENNIEL RESIGNS.
London, Jan. 14.���The retirement
of Sir John Tennlel from the stuff of
Punch is a national event, since his
cartoons have beon more powerful
than the beat written lenders In explaining political situations and directing public opinion during the last
40 years. His draughtsmanship,
which Leech considered singularly
true, bus fallen off after 50 years of
active service, and his resignation is
due to his own consciousness that his
work Is done. Lindley Sambourne
baa been in training for the succession, but thcie are many admirers of
Carruthcrs Gould, who would like to
see his work in  Punch.

Dibtrict.
Sandon, B. C, Jan. 14.���The mining output of the Slocan for 190(1 has
been the largest in the history of tho
district, notwithstanding that for various reasons some of the oldest properties have shipped but little. The
Payne, which is the banner shipper,
sent out 10,790 tons against 9,28.1
tons in 1897, which was considered
Its bannnur yeai.
The Ruth last year sent out but 2,-
171 tons as against ft,889 In 1H97. The
exports for the year just closed, however, were to a large extent of concentrates, while iu 1897 all shipments
were of crude ore.
The value of the output for last
year was quite equal to that of any
other year. Sandon sent out 23,188
tons, which iu value would average
87.1 por ton, or a total of about 82,>
0(H), 000.
The total exports of ore from Slocan
Lake points were 4,019 tons, and
from Whitewater 5,305 tons, the White
water mine leading with 5,208 tons.
The exports from Three Forks were
about 7,000 tons and from McGuigan
2,000, making a grand total of very
nearly 43,000 tons. Estimating the
value of the ore shipped at 870, the
total valuo was  nearly 83,000,000.
The number of men employed In
the district averages about 800.
About 50 properties shipped Inst year

The directors propose with the assistance of a reorganized staff to more
than maintain the present efficiency
of the paper.
The evidences of rsnewed prosperity
In the Kootenays, now that the bar
aoaions relations between recently
discordant elements have been rcstor
ed, owing to the tbe good sense and
business principles of the contending
parties and the conciliatory attitude
ot their mutual friends, are everywhere apparent, and the year 1001
will doubtless be a record one if all
pull together for the good of the com-
isunity, Irrespective of party or class.
It will be the aim and hope of The
Miner to help and aid in maintaining
and fostering these satisfactory conditions.
The policy of The Miner will be independent, owing allegiance to no one
party or class.
Its columns will always be open to
the public and the management will
be pleased at all times to afford the
fullest discussion of all matters of
public import.
Beginning January the 20tb. The
Miner will he published as a morning
paper and on January the 19th there
will be no issue, January- tbe 18th
being the last evening issue and Janu
ary the 20th tbe first morning issue.
After that date the papei will be
published as it was prior to the
change to the eveaing field.
It will be unfortunate .indeed if
some slight recognition of tbe services
they have performed is not accorded
Nelson's home coming volunteers.
They may not all claim Nelson as their
borne city, but they enlisted here,
coming for tbat purpose from neigh
boring communities, and It would be
a graceful tribute to them and to the
people who sent them forth to battle,
if Nelson citizens were to give them a
royal welcome borne.
The Miner offers congratulations to
Mayor Fleteber, Aldermen Selous,
Hamilton, Madden, Paterson, Irving
and Gillutt and trusts they will go
out of olllce a year hence crowned
witb laurels gained bv righteous and
wise doings	
SOLDIER'S   HOME COMING.
Another Correspondent  Thinks Something Should Be Dene.
Editor Miner:
Sir,���I noticed a letter in your Is
���ue of Saturday re a civic reception to
the returning vetorans of the South
African campaign and give my strongest support to "Citizen's" views. The
soldiers to arrive this week are, it is
believed, the last that will return and
we should do our best to make their
home-coming an event long to be re
membered. These men gave up their
positions or occupations and, without
hope of pecuniary advantage, took up
arms in defence of their Queen and
Country in South Africa,thereby proving their loyalty and their affection
for tbe old flag. Tney aro now returning from a bard fought campaign
and deserve all the honor we can bo-
sow upon them. Every elty in Canada
has welcomed their returning heroes
in a fitting manner and I cannot think
tbat we, who aro as loyal as any in
this Dominion, will be behindhand in
tbis respect. The new Mayor and
Council will likely be sworn in today
and bold a meeting tonight and It
would be a graceful set on their part
te make their first bunlncse  tbe <juca-
'~Vt
tion of properly welcoming our soldier
boys. I would suggest that a reception committee be appointed by the
Council to look after the details of tbe
���vent, that the Mayor and Aldermen,
tbe Fire Brigade,citizens with torches
and a guard of honor of the Rooky
Mountain Rangcis meet the boat at tbe
wharf and after extending the boys a
right royal welcome home, fall in and
escort them to the Opera Hobse and
there hold a public reception or a
smoker. The expense to the city will
be very small, merely the rent of tho
Opera House and a few little incidentals. The proceeds of the entertainment may be devoted to a suitable presentation which I am sure will be
much appreciated. 1 feol confident
that Mayor Fletcher and the City
Council will do their best to make the
homeooming of the brave follows who
bave risked tbeir lives in tbe defense
of our country, an event which will
Impress upon them the fact that tbeir
sacrifices in behalf of our Queen
and flag have been appreciated
Yours, MERCHANT.

THE LEAD QUESTION.
Explanation   From    a   Smelter  Man
Regarding,' the   Present Situation.
Tbe lead question continues to attract attention. The Spokesman-Review of Spokane, speaks of it as follows:
The operators of silver-lead mines
In Rritish Columbia have been much
agitated since tbe first of the year
over the refusal of the American
Smelting & Refining Company to renew contracts on^he old bas:3. Since
the expiration of tbe old contracts on
December 31 the combine has purchased no ore from any of tbe British
Columbia mines.and tbis fact has given rise to sundry alarmist rumors aud
many varied explanations of the combine's action, chief among which has
been the claim that the combine meditated a sharp advance in rates.
In the meantime the Trail and Nelson smlters have been crowded to the
fullest capacity by the large surplus
of ore thus created, and there has
beet, a neoessary considerable curtailment of the output from tbe Slocan
and East Kootenay mines.
The explanation given at the office
of .the American Sm��lting & Refining
Company here is simple. Eugene 11.
Rraden, northwestern representative
of the combine, replying to inquiries
in this regard, yesterday said;
"We do not refuse to take British
Columbia ores, but the company is unwilling to pay what it considers an
nnfair freight rate on ores demanded
by the Canadian Pacific and refuses to
rencv contracts on the old basis until
a fair rate can be secured. Tbe
treatment rates will not be advanced to any extent, though it is probable that some changes in the schedule
will be made���changes made necessary
by changes in the relative supply of
wet and dry ores."
The exact rates could not be learned
but it Is understood that the rate by
the Canadian Pacific main line to Omaha from British Columbia points on
the Crow's Nest is over (10 per cent,
greater than the American'rates from
the Couer d'Alenea to Colorado smelters.
It is understood that the Silver-
Lead Mine Owners' Association of
British Columbia will meet in Sandon
in a day or two, and it is expected
that a conference between the association and the representative of the
combine looking toward a settlement
of the matter will be the result.
A continued refusal of the smelting
company to take British Columbia
ores -vould mean a serious loss, and
the forces on several of the Slocan
producers bave already been temporarily reduced, pending a settlement of the difficulty. There
has been a great deal of talk
among the British Columbia
papers of building Canadian smelters
to compete with the American company, but it is realised that this will
take time, and that in the meantime
the smelter capacity of the Province
Is wholly inadequate to the large
and growing, output of its silver-lead
mines. 	
It is thought probable that the Canadian Pacific will be Induced to meet
the company In the matter of rates,
as the Canadian r'acltic smelter interests will be operated to their full capacity in any case. - It is reported
here, however, tbat strong influence
is being brought to bear by Canadian
smelting interests on the big Canadian line to have tbe prohibitive rates
on ares exported to this country con-
tinned.    	
A GOOD THING.

troubles of the severest naturo, removing, as it does, tho cause of the nlice-
ton and leaving the parts In a strong

Stockholders Decide   to   Wind Up the
Concern.
London, Jan. 14.���At an adjourned
meeting today of the stockholders of
the London and (llobe Finance Corporation is was resjlved to voluntarily
windup tbe concern. Mr. Whitaker
Wright explained that the directors
wanted ��500,000 to pay the debts and
several hundred thousand pounds with
which to carry on operations. Since
the last meeting he added, the directors hud been negotiating for the sole
of the Baker Street Waterloo Railroad
for ��500,000 and it was expected an
agreement would be signed today. It
was then proposed to proceed with
the re-construction of the corporation.
The corporation's assets, Mr.Wright
added, amounted to nearly three millions and though there had been a
depreciation in prices they would soon
recover. In regard to the alleged underhand scheming against the corporation, Mr. Wright said a certain engineer offered the manager of the Le
Roi mine ��100,000 profit on the stock
exchange to diminish the output and
wreck tho mine. In response to indignant shouts of "name," Mr. Wright
replied that the matter was in the
bauds of lawyers and if it could be
provod the name would he made public.
SENT HOME.
Physicians in Germany Send Patients to
America for Food,
Two clergymen who went to Germany last year for treatment by a
noted specialist were told that they
must use tirupenuts, mado in America, at Battle Creek, Mich,, for the
principal part of each meal. This
suggestion Interested the two divines
greatly,for while they knew of Urape-
Nuts and that there was a large use
made of the food in America, it had
never -some their way to try It.
A lady in Heddlng, N. 11., Mrs.
Otis Cole, says the after effect of the
gilp was a serious gastric and stomach trouble. All the following summer she hud many attueks of palpitation of the heart, nausea, pain, faint-
ness, insomnia, und all thu othur ills
which accompany Impaired nerve forou
nnd indigestion, She begun using
(Irapn -Nuts to build her up uud
found at once that the food ereatud
no disturbance and she began to guln
In strength und Courage, In October
she went for a visit and took (Irnpu-
Nuts with ber to use ruch day. She
gained 10 pounds In weight In about
four months and fully recovered Inn-
health.
She further says: "M'hlle 1 am
Dow entirely well, I shall probably
adhere to (Irape-Nuts during the balance of my life. My brother-in-law.
a practicing physician, says (Irapc-
Nuts simmered In milk, strained and
the clear liquid given, forms an Ideal
nourishment in cases of extreme prostration, and its stimulating effect Is
noticed Immediately. A friend of
mine, a professional reader, carries
a package of drupe-Nuts in ber
haad-bag, for she says the exhaustion after an evening's work, will not
admit of lunching on ordinary food,
but Grape-Nuts tood always rustores
ber and leaves no 111 effects, for the
food is eo easily dlgosted nnd Is ready
oooked, therefore a great convenience."

Overheard in the post office.    A lady said  fo    Mrs. S "Have you been to O'Reilly's this week?   They have great
bargains there."    Mrs. S "1 was just going to tell you I bought a tailor made suit there for $8 50 and felt guilty, thinking the
clerk had made a mistake in the price.    It was marked $20.00, but I felt relieved when my neighbor came home with one exactly
the same at the same price.    This is the way they are selling them all now."
