fFBOX X STAFr COHRESrOVDENT.I
Johnstown, July 8. There is very
little Bleeping being done in the camp to
night Nearly all the State officers and
employers will leave for their homes in the
morning, and are now patting in their time
preparing to take their departure. The old
officers, who like to gather around a camp
fire and review old associations, are bidding
goodby to their fellows. From many a tent
comes the sound of clinking tin cups, in
dicative of many gatherings around the
flowing bowl, or rather the flowing keg. The
men who have worked from early morn until
midnight are rejoicing in the fact that they
will enjoy a short season of rest after to-night.
It will be very short, as many of them will haTe
to do duty at the annual encampments.
The feature of the closing ceremonies of the
camp was a badge presentation from the State
officers of the O. A, R. to Adjutant General
Bastings for bis valuable services in rendering
assistance to the families of the members lost in
the flood. The badge is a beautiful emblem
made of gold and set with diamonds. The bar
Is a fac simile of the shoulder straps of a Brig
adier General with the star set in diamonds.
Pendint from the bar is the monogram "N. G.
P.," made entirely of diamonds. The main
badge below is a keystone of dead and bright
gold, surrounded by an enameled circle having
in gold letters the words. "From the Depart
ment 01 rennsjivania 01 mo k. o- . wu
the reverse is the inscription: "To Adjutant
General D. H. Hastings for many favors and
earnest help to the Grand Army of the Re
public" AFFECTING SPEECHES.
Department Commander Stewart made the
presentation speech, which was responded to
by the Adjutant General. General Hastings
spoke of the calamity and of the efficient ser
vices rendered by the members of the Four
teenth Regiment of Pittsburg, a portion of
which was drawn up around bim. He paid an
elegant tribute to the members of tbe G. A R..
and said be felt sure that the members of tbe
regiment would make as good soldiers as tbe
former, who had served their country.
Other speeches were made by Colonel Frank
B. Eshelman. of Philadelphia, who paid a just
recognition to the efficient services of General
John A. Wiley, cf tbe second Brigade, and by
Colonel John H. Linton and Cyrus Elder, of
this place. The latter read a set of resolutions
adopted at a meeting of the Finance Commit
tee this afternoon, eulogizing Adjutant Gen
eral Hastings for his valuable services ren
dered to tbe citizens nf tbe town. Tbe general
was visibly moved by the kind words of praise
heaped upon him. At tbe conclusion of the
meeting be was kept busy for an bour shaking
bands and bidding farewell to those who are
going to leave.

tbe place once each week and direct part of
tbe work, hlch will be under tbe charge of
Captain George Hamilton.
The new system of having the work done by
one contractor went into effect this morning,
and there was not five minutes delay in mak
ing the change. Tbe new contractors. McLaln
. Co., had nearly S00 men at work and scattered
them about tbe town. The first work in tbe
matter of clearing out cellars was begun this
morning on Main street. Many of the citizens
disapproved of the force of men being cut so
heavily, but their dissatisfaction was not out
spoken. riGDBES ON LOSSES.
Mr. H. J. Davies, Secretary of tbe Board of
Inquiry, who has been conducting tbe registra
tion, left for bis home in Cleveland to-nlgbt.

cles which existed have been adjusted. Head

inc that the misunderstanding about the pay
rolls was due to tbe fact that tbe rolls had not
been properly divided amone tbe different de
partments. In determining these losses allowance baa
ucen maue lor property uu nas oeen aavea,
hence this is an estimate only in tctal loss.

"The aggregate of the local committee's esti
mates of loss in classes 1, 2, 3. 4 and 6 is (4,791,717.

WAKEN TO THE FACT, OH TE PEOPLE
Bargains Impossible of Duplication
-ARE OBTAINABLE IN-
EVERT DEPARTMENT 0E OUR STORE
There's no time in the past season when our sales nave not
exceeded the combined sales of any three of the other large
clothing houses in Pittsburg, notwithstanding we have put our
truthful statements against exaggerated advertising. We expect
this week a flood of eager buyers for the simple reason that we're
bound to keep busy even if we lose money. The goods we have
must be sold at some price; they can't linger around here; not in
our store. This is the reason why we make such remarkable
offers; give such phenomenal bargains. Our prices for Men's
Suits will range from S3 50 to $25, the way stations between these
two points being frequent enough to accommodate all kinds of
people. Altho' we have not, as in mid-season, 30, 4c or 50 of a
kind yet we have enough to suit and fit everybody. You've only
got to make up your mind as to the amount you wish to spend to
fit you out in proper summer attire to get something to suit you.
Bear in mind we've got first mortgage on quality and we strike
the key note of popularity by giving the highest satisfaction in
fit and style.
Orders by Mail Receive Same Attention
as if Brought in Person.
Always Send Money With Mail Orders,
it Saves Time and Expense.
Many a poor woman, misled by some high-sounding advertise
ments of unscrupulous dealers, pays the penalty of an injudicious
purchase by constantly toiling after her hard day's work in order
to keep in repair clothing bought for her boy at clothing stores
other than ours. We protect all in whatever they buy from us by
guaranteeing absolute satisfaction in wear, no matter what price
is paid us. Be advised by us all parents. Come and see how
little cash it takes to buy, this week, clothing for your boys relia
ble iNjvery way. You with plenty or you with meager filled
purses, nowVyour chance to buy where your money will do almost
double duty. Not a single article offered at a low price as a mis
"leader," but our entire stock is offered at a liberal reduction in
prices. Not only are the goods we offer lower in price than can
be found elsewhere, but you can depend on the thorough reliabil
ity of everything we offer. If we were to utilize a whole page of
this paper in speaking of our Boys' and Children's clothing we
couldn't say more.
