Of Comfort
In these days of semi-tropical heat, which
is tiresome alike to mind and body, the
uppermost thought in the mind of every
sensible person is, "How can 1 keep
cool and comfortable ?" Life without a
sense of comfort is hardly worth living,
and with this idea in mind we present to
our readers today, two of the most com
fortable suggestions we can think of as
an offset to the two months' warm weath
er that still lies ahead of us.
Light, cool and airy, in such materials as
very fine seersuckeis, cambrics, crash, etc.
Pbin or trimmed with circular and plaited
llounces, single or cluster ruffles, and in
such a variety of colorings, patterns and
styles as to leave no room for dissatisfaction
as to the assortment
Prices 55c to $1.75
ok n
In thin, cob web-like creations that sug
gest coolness and comfort in their very ap
pearance. Of course you've seen and ad
mired the "Kimonis" dainty, easy and
dressiest ol all negligee garments. The
"Geisha" is also a favorite, while tight
fitting Dressing Sacques are becoming more
popular every day. The trimmings are in
lace, insertions, embroidery, braids, etc,
And we know you'll like them.

On his bands was a church that needed repairs
and a aoelety that needed reconciliation, but
with friends who stand by every ptstor and the
blenslng of Almighty Uod, great work has so
far been accomplished.
The entire debt has been raM off, which work
calls for thn celebration of thi, dijs the

has been paid. Two new lots hue bem se

Assyrians in Troublo Again.

In which u dozen or moio Assyrians

The latter Is ti ptetty widow, and
the tioublo started on July 10, when
a Rioup of her counti men wete hold
Iiir one of their pcilotllcal seaaices.
At Uint time, the muhr woman was
seated in her rpiai lets when Iheie
came down fioin tin- npattinents aboe
a riu.tntity ot beet,' which soiled her
clothing and otheiwlse despoiled her
Reneral make-up.
On Jul IS she appealed befoto Al
deiman Kellow and caused wai rants
to be Issued for the an est of Thomas
A mane, Joseph Moil, t'allm Saiz nnd
Mltimei Matiboor, ihaiglnpr them with
assault and batteiy. Tho only evi
dence adduced ut tho heating was
fioni Aniline, who admitted spilling
the bcei on the j miner woman, but
contended that It was accidental. Ho
was held In $J00 ball and the othet
thleo weie dlbchaiRed.
The oiitcoinc ot this was thut seen
uieu loiisplicd to lulu the woman's
leputatloti by alleging that the I!ev.
Peti is Asuian was guilty of liupioper
lelations with nei, and fioni the testi
mony glxon. they composed a letter
which, It is alleged, was lot w aided to
the bishop.
1'pon learning' this the pi lest had
wan ants Issued for Oeoige Nicholas,
N.ijab YotimH, Alias Mackeoul. Joseph
MhsmiikI, Thomas Amane. Keiln Saab
and Mliimcr Mutisoonr, charging them
with ctlniliial libel. Theie was no evi
dence to substantiate the chatge, nnd
the cae was dismissed.

no evidence to show that the pilest
