Spd All the Honey
You please on handsome furniture, costly paintings,
statuary aud other magnificent ideas, but if you take
away softening influences and charming graces of ap
propriate draperies, the effect of all your collection of
costly beauty would be so diminished as to become
wearisome to the eye and a positive bore to the refined
or sensitive mind.
Beautiful Draperies Are Not Expensive
This week we are making a practical demonstration of
this fact, and the practical home maker, housekeeper,
or co 'y room or corner furnisher may learn much in a
few minutes spent in our Drapery Department these
days that all the reading and home study of a month
could not impart. The truth is, we are enthusiastic
on the subject of
Popular Priced Draperies
And upholsterings and offer opportunities to buyers of
taste such as are not to be had elsewhere. All the new
'fabrics, tone effects and colorings are seen at their best
r- n in our extensive collection, and our long and success
?j 'j.'ful study of how to make homes beautiful at a surpris
ingly low cost may be of value to you.
Of Course, We include Lace Curtains
Door Panels, Sash Curtains, etc. Some are made in
" ,, the Scranton factory, others come from abroad, Inex-
' pensive Nottinghams and Irish Points are much sought
after and the new art effects are lovely. Then there
are the dainty Muslin and Swiss Curtains with ruffles
or plain; elegant Brussels aud Irish Point goods; Ori
ental European aud American hangings, etc., none of
which will frighten you by their cost, Suppose you drop
in aud see them this week.

devastated tint fair .Southern city. ft

which relics were piccurcd for the .irch.-VoKical

dicated that in some i.ir distant age wi-cr. Il-c
lands bordering; the Kiilf were peopled by a race
long since perished from the face of the c.uth a
similar tempest overwhelmed the unfortunate
residents of the coast. It must lue ile-tmjeil
(hem by thousands just as people were destroyed
whin the hurricane nnd tlood descended upon
f.alve.ston in the recent calamity which lias
moused for the stricken city the pjmpathy of Us
sister cities of the whole American Union.
The bones dNcoveicd in this search for Pan

thousand ycais old. They arc of a prehistoric
lace nnd the chaiacter of the people who occu
pied the coast of the gulf at this period Is an
inteicitincf subject for speculation. Whoewr
they may Ime been and wheneier they may
hac lived, the remains found show bejond a
question that some terrible outbreak of nature

ancient people and their burial in the strata
