STRAWBRIDGE fc CLOTHIER,
CLOSING SALE OF DRY GOODS
AN EXTRAORDINARY SCALE.
Wc hereby announce te the public that our Rebuilding Operations, new in pro
gress, will include sonic radical changes in our present store, and during the summer
materially reduce the size of the building. We find ourselves with the largest stock
we have ever had at this stage of the season, aggregating almost
A MILLION HUE IN TALI.
And it is net only desirable, but necessary, that a large portion thereof
should be closed at once.
Although the great bulk of this stock was contracted for en a basis of values much
lower than new, we have determined, after careful consideration, instead of storing
away the goods, te distribute among our patrons and consumers generally, say one
FIYE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS' WORTH,
At such Prices as may be necessary in order te speedily close. We have, there
A GEE AT CLOSING SALE
In Every Department, and propose te distribute such bargains among the people,
far and wide, as will be our most clfectivc advertisements for the new store we pro
pose te ein in the early autumn.
FAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE:
We de net claim te have reduced everything, for there are certain goods in such
limited supply that we can scaraely meet the demand. SUCH GOODS WIIL NOT
HE REDUCED. But outside of these a radical mark-down has token place, and
many goods that are selling well are marked away down te insure their immediate
clearance. The opportunity te secure bargains is a very unusual one, and buyers of
Dry Goods the country ever should promptly put in appearance at our house.
Our organization and our facilities for distributing large quantities of goods, are
believed te be unequalled, but every effort will be made te strengthen it and increase
its ulliciency during this closing sale, se that all who visit us may be waited en prompt
ly and te their entire satisfaction.
Discarding all sensational or exaggerated statements we threw upon the market
this immense stock of Dry Goods, determined te sell the amount named at whatever
sacrifice may be necessary te accomplish the object.
All who need Dry Goods or who can be induced by the certainty of saving, te an
ticipate their wants, should visit us in person. Frem present indications the goods
will be sold tee rapidly te insure in all cases perfect satisfaction in the filling of orders
through the Mail Order Department during the continuance of this great closing sale.

SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 5, 1880.
Hymn singing is net always appropri

singular selections. A minister preached
a solemn sermon en the .judgment, and
gave out at the close,
"Thutawlul day will surely come."
which the choir sang te the lively air
"Coronation." "Brether," said the
pieacher te the chorister in the vestibule,
why didn't you sing ' Yankee Deedle '." "
At an immersion baptism en the bank
of a river, as each candidate, male or
female, emerged diipping from the water,
the people interjected the favorite levivalist
"They leek like men in nnilerin,
They leek like men of war."
At a protracted meeting one of the
hardest families in the neighborhood, by

the whole tribe out of church in flaming
dudgeon ! An English leader set the ad

A very severe bl'vw v;is dealt at Grant by
the few rich nun, Childs and ethers, who
had the coaching of him when he came te
our city after his return te America. Ne
teceptien ever given in Philadelphia was a
patch te that. The heart of the people
was in it, and the most lavish energies vT
the Republicans were bestowed upon the
distinguished guest ; but he did nut give
the working men of the party any portion
of his attention. He was being carried off
fiem among us te clubs, suppers, break
fasts and rides by the half-a-dozen people
about him, until it get be a matter of
remark among the boys that General
Grant did net care anything for us. When
the Grand Army of the Republic paraded
in his honor he stayed just long enough te
see them go by. and then hastened oil te
something social among the blue-bleeds
before they could come back and shake
hands with him. At the municipal recep
tion held at St. Geerge's hall, which was
especially get up in his honor, he hardly
tasted his soup before they rushed him off,
te letnrn among us no mere, and go te
their SatiiMlayJnight club, a literary circle.
The consequence was that before Grant
left the city the labeung, enthusiastic poli
ticians among the Republican paity were
completely scared. It was then that Blaine
stepped in and made his impression. Mr.
Childs and that set had a full week te en
joy General Grant after the public festivi
ties weie done. 13ut their greediness te
absorb him has partly produced this dis
affection, which I deplore, in our delega
tion. He Tested It.
In eidcr te attest the acoustic piepcr
ties of the convention hall in Chicago,
the Republican committee borrowed the
voice of lien. W. J. Hynes, a leading
Democrat, who possesses, we arc told, one
of the best "mass meeting voices in the
country." The test took place Tuesday af
ternoon in the presence of quite an audi
ence, including Conkling, Hear and etheis.
Te the intense amusement of the audience
Hynes mounted the stage and delivered
this speech :
"Fkli.ew-Citizens : This is a moment

is here the bird of freedom was born. It
is here that he steed with one claw en the

Death of the Empress of Russia.
The wife of the Emperor of Russia,
whose death has been long looked for, and
whose dying condition has a dozen times
been mentioned by cable, has at last finally
succumbed te the violent malady which
afflicted her. Her disease, for the pallia
tion of which she has spent many winters
in Nice, was consumption, and she seems
te have been recently se ill that she was
happily unaware of the serious attempts
made bythe Nihilists upon the life of her
husband. The Empress, who was the
daughter of the late Grand Duke Leuis,of
Hesse, was in her fifty-sixth year at the
time of her death. Her name before mar
riage was a long one Maximiilcnne Wil
helmina Augusta Sephia Maria. Her
pestmarital name wa-sMaria Alexendrevna.
She left six children, the Czarevitch,
Alexander Alexandrevitch, who has three
children liviug, having been born 1845 ;

The Vesper Bells.
" In the cathedral of Limerick tlftrc hangs
a chime of bells which were cast in Italy
by an enthusiast in his trade, who fixed
his home near the menastry where they
were first hung, that he might enjoy their
sweet, solemn music. In a political revo
lution the bells were taken away te some
distant land, and the maker himself be
came a refugee and exile. His wanderings
brought him, after many years, te Ireland
On a calm and beautiful evening, as the
vessel which bore him floated en the placid
besom of the Shannen, suddenly the even
chime pealed forth from the cathedral
towers. His experienced car caught the
sweet sounds and he knew that his lest
treasures were found. His early home,
his friends, his beloved and native land,
all the best associations of his life were in
these sounds. He laid himself back in the
beat, crossed his arms upon his breast and
listened te the music. The beat reached
the wharf but still he lay motionless. They
spoke te him, but he did net answer. They
went te him, but his spirit had fled. The
tide of memories that came vibrating
through his heart at that well-known
chime had snapped its life-string.
One or Twe Gathered Together.
Fer many years a story has floated
around through the press te the effect that
Dr. Lyman Beecher once preached a pow
erful sermon te one person. Owing te a
storm, no one else came, and the geed man
tried te de his best, as he always did, even
with the one soul, which was thereby con
verted. The story has been repeatedly de
nied by these who ought te knew all
all about it, but it is still afloat, despite
the denial. It is related that the late
Dr. William Patten, of New Yerk,
during a severe snow storm, held a
regular service, all except the Sing
ing, with the sexton and a stranger
in -the gallery. The sermon impressed the
latter, who a-few days later called en the
pastor, sayiug he could net rid his mind of
the truth heard, and seen thereafter he
connected himself with the church, of
which he continued a useful member.
When Dr. Gee. W. Bethune was pastor of
a Reformed church in Philadelphia, two
gentlemen of prominence, happening te be
in the city, concluded te attend his weekly
evening lecture. It was very stormy, and
only the sexton, an old woman and these
two strangers were present four in all.
One of them says :
"The Dr. rose, gave ent a hymn, and
sang it himself. After prayer and eloquent
reading of scripture,he delivered one of the
most profound lectures I have ever heard.
My friend said : Why did you net keep
that lecture for a better night it was tee
geed te threw away upon us?' The Dr.
replied : ' It is my duty te preach the
gospel te the best of my ability under all
circumstances, and it is wrong te punish
these who come in stormy weather ler the
delinquency of ethers.' I set him down
for a great mail, and concluded that he
preached the truth for the love of the truth,
and net for the praise of men."
" Zuch " Tayler's Salary.
The Heuse of Representatives en Tues
day amended the deficiency appropriation
bill se as te pay the salary of General
Zachary Tayler, as president of the United
States, te his hcirs-at-law. The amend
ment, which was moved by Mr. J. R.
Tucker, of Virginia, directs the secretary
of the treasury te pay te Mrs. Bettie Tay Tay
eor Dandridge and Mr.-'.Sarah Kuex Weed,
daughter and granddaughter of Gen. Tay Tay
eor, tiie sum of $25,000, less se much of
his salary as the late president or his fami
ly may have drawn during the year. It
will be remembered that President Tayler,
who was inaugurated March 4, 1849,
died July 9, 1850. It is the custom
in such cases ler Congress te vote
the year's salary te the president.'. widow,
or his ether legal representatives. But
Gen. Tayler's family at that time held
large estates, and declined a preposition
which was made them te introduce a bill
te pay te the widow the remainder of the
year's salary. The preposition te pay this
money new grows out of the fact that
Mrs. Dandridge (who is Gen. Tayler's
daughter and is the widow of Cel. Bliss,
the general's chief of staff throughout the
Mexican war), and Mrs. Weed, daughter
of Surgeon Weed, are net in geed circum
stances. Gen. Richard Tayler, before his
death, ami his heirs since, h.ive relin
quished all claim upon this money in favor
of the mere needy and helpless ladies. The
Heuse adopted the amendment without
dissent as seen as its object was explained,
and the Senate will doubtless make haste
te confirm it.

A Werd te the Wise.
If it be true, as reported, that any enum
erator of the census has permitted an
other person or persons te go around with
him te dwellings while making his inquir
ies, or if he has repeated te ether persons
the answers he gets at the houses where
he calls, that enumerator don't under
stand his obligations, and is unfit for the
duty. He is bound by law net te disclose
the answers he gets ; he is bound by his
oath also ; and if he violates the law or his
oath by communicating te anybody but
his official superiors the information he
gets in the discharge of his duties, he is
punishable by heavy penalty. If there
shall happen te be any thoughtless or
loesc-tongued enumerator who tells what
he hears in census taking this hint should
straighten him up.

Weakly and Sickly Persons.
Many persons who are weak and sickly at
this season of the year are at a less te knew
what will restore their health. It has lately
been found by experience that the use of
b peer's PortUrape wine is one et the best re
storatives known. Physicians, clergymen and
temperance advocates should encourage the
use of Pert Grape and thus aid the cause of
temperance and moderation. It is especially
recommended te families for its purity, ex
