Movement Goneral News Notes.
Many life-long friends of Hew B. Tl.
I,owls assembled In the Tabernacle
Congregational church liiHt evening to
bid him farewell on his departure for
AVales. The gathering was an Infor
jnal nlTnlr, but iiroved to be Interest
ing and enjoyable. All of the ad
drosses wore of a nature calculated
to Insure How Lewis a safe journey
and l-oturn.
William J. Morris, of the First Welsh
linptlat church, was chairman of the
meeting; and made a few remarks.
Letters of regret were read from Col
onel 13. II. Ripple, who wan unable to
Toe present, and Rev. T. t. Ij. Kvnns,
of Gomer, Ohio. An original poem,
dedicated to Rev. Lewis, was read by
Rev. D. C. Phillips. Others who spoke
were David Vaughn, Richard 15.
Thomas, William 13. Reese, Rev. D. P.
'Jones. Mayor Motr, John R. .Tones,
Rev. E. A. Roy, John J. Howell and
Rev. Lewis.
Rev. Lewis ban been a resident of

Dress Goods
At the
Has often formed the topic of conversation among Dress
Goods experts miles aud miles away from Scrautou,
because of the completeness, variety aud extent of the
stock carried within its limits. Outsiders cauuot un
derstand why a stock of such magnitude should be car
ried in a city like Scranton, when stores with much
greater pretensions than ours in New York, Philadel
phia, Pittsburg, Chicago, etc., get along with half the
assortment Ave offer our patrons.
The "Whys" Regarding This Fact
Are not worth discussing, however, for while we are
proud of the distinction of having one of the most com
plete Black Dress Goods Departments in the country,
we have no thought of becoming vaiu-gloriously boast
ful about it. Indeed, all we care for is to impress this
one fact upon the people from whom we look for pat
ronage, viz,:
If Black Dress Goods Are Wauted
And the Weave or Design Sought for
Is Wot Antiquated, We Have It at Its Best
And at a lower figure than it can probably be bought
for elsewhere. It will be found in our Black Dress
Goods Department as soon as it makes its appearauce
on the market. We do not wait to see whether the
new style will take or not. Experience has taught us
to solve that problem at a glance, consequently we
never hesitate,
These facts are uot easily grasped and taken at
their true value by the mere reading of au advertise,
ment, but if it should happen that you are not familiar
with our Black Dress Goods Department, favor us with
a call at an early date, if for no other purpose than to
look it over. After that you'll be as firmly convinced
as we are of the truth of our statements,

A Novel Proposition.
A well-known young man has re
ceived n. liberal offer from an enterpris

i Candor in Business Is Commendable
We do not believe that the Intelligent piano buying public wants to
be humbugged, nor that It can be for any length of time. Facts, un
questionable facts, are good enough for us. We lost the sale of a piano
tho other day because wot could not allow w'lthln seventy-five dollars
as much for an old stpiare piano as our competitor did. AVe subsequent
ly learned that the parties paid $450.00 for a piano tho duplicate of one
sold a few weeks previously to a party, who had no square piano to
trade, for $27n.00
AVe allow casli value for old instruments nnd no more: but the
prices of our pianos do not expand the moment you mention organ or
square piano. Every Instrument in our ware-rooms bears a tajc with
the price marked on in plain figures, and THIS IS OUR SELLING
PHICE. Does this idea meet with your approval? If so, wo can inter
est you.
piAMos f
Are eminently fitted, as instruments of the highest grade, to success
fully play their part In our purpose.
Tells the story, and it doss not require much piano knowledge for a
clcur lnterpr6tatlon, either. AVe who sell STIEFF Pianos have a feal
Ing of satisfaction In so doing that cannot but be foreign to a piano
transaction wherein some other make Is involved.
Pianos of other makes at prices to suit the most economical.
