Ladies' Coats Superbly Made in
the Latest Correct Styles.
Especial Stress Is Placed
Upon the High Qualities
' and Very Low Prices.
The garments we show. are
not of the ordinary type. They
come from a maker who is
celebrated for his exquisite
taste and matchless skill. The
results of his efforts are seen
in the attractive display. Not
a detail has been overlooked,
as all .parts of the garment
have received most scrupulous
attention. The particular bar
gains are in such cloths as
Chinchilla, Beaver, Covert and
Kersey, many of wliich are
exquisitely lined with silk.

The official returns in Sullivan county

3-year-old son of Charles Dixon, lost his
life. The mother had prepared
Thanksgiving dinner nnd stepped
across the road to invite her parents
over to eat with them, leaving the
child alone. She was not gone more
than five minutes, but when she re
turned the child was down upon Us
knees near the kitchen door. Its face
upon the floor and Its clothes nearly
burned off its body. The carpet was on
fire, as well as the clothing on the bed
In an adjoining room, showing that
after Igniting its dress it had run about
the house In a vain endeavor to ex
tinguish the flames. It lived about
three hours aftervird, suffering terrl
ble agony. There was nothing to show
that it had been playing with the fire
in the stove, and It doubtless must
have picked up a match. The funeral
will occur today at 2 p. m.

The Methodist concert at our place
last Wednesday evening was a decided
The concert given In P.auman's hall
on Wednesday evening by the Martin
brothers, of Jermyn, was an unquali
fied success. In the quartettes the rich
voices of the brothers blended harmo
niously, and each number was well re
ceived. The individual singing was of
the highest order. The full teuor of
Professor Martin, who has charge of
our borouirh school, has seldom been
huard with better effect than on Wed
nesday evening, when he sang "South
ern Home," for a recall to whioh lie
Bang "There's None Can Forgive Like
a Mother." The mellow tenor of John
Martin was heard to advantage in the
quartettes and also In the beautiful
rendition of "The Sinking Ship."
Tlinmns Martin is the possessor of a
fine base voice, and his exquisite ren
dition of "The Noble Boy of Truth,"
with "The Wanderer" as a recall, was a
revelation of the power of the divine
art. Although .the work of all Ithe
brothers was excellent, yet it must be
said that the baritone of Archie Mar
tin Is supreme. His singing of the
"t'.towawav." a.t the Harvest festival
last week, was a delight to all present,
but even this was surpassed by his ren
dition of "Uncle Pete," as a recall to
which he sang "The Colored Million
aire." In the giving of this concert
the quartette was assisted by Professor
E. Stephens. This gentleman played
two difficult cornet solos In a magnifi
cent style. As a recall to the first solo
the professor played "The Last Uoso
of Summer." which was thoroughly
appreciated by the audience.
