An unsuecessliil attempt was made to
lob the market of Fiank M. Sterling,
at 32S South Main avenue, Monday

man John McColllgan was standing at
South Main avenue and Luzerne street,
he heard the sound of breaking glass,
I and quickly passed up the other side ot
the street to see what the trouble was.
McColllgan saw two men at the ft out
window, but waited for them to enter
the market to eaptuie both. A third
man came along, probably an accom

with the patrolman after them, but
they dodged into an alley and ei-cnped.

From Originals in This Store
The camera tells the truth always. You'll ad
mit that, won't you? It's our personal pride that's
prompted us to give you these true photographs of
Fashionable Overcoats now displayed in this store.
The unquestionable merit of our clothes is well known
in this city. It's proved by the increasing patronage I
ot our "Alter bury system, and we contend that
from your past experience with our styles and method
of securing the best workmanship, that no better
Overcoats will be shown in this city this season at
our prices. We. of course, consider you the judge.
These are the true photographs of style; When may
we snow you the cloth, quality
and colorings. 'There's quite a

What's Your Opinion of These
Two Overcoats for Little Men?
We think you'll admit that it takes more than
ordinary tailoring to produce such novelty and style,
that sincerity and co-operation with the best manu
facturers, means something to you and to us. Such
overcoat styles as these, and many more that are dis
played in this department, show the careful work of
the boys' tailor, guided by the designer who produces
exclusive designs in boys clothes.
There's many diffrent cloth qualities from

An Institution Designed to Assist in
Making Them Self Supporting.
Horn tho Chicago Chionlcle,
On tho top floor of tho New Hrle
building1 1b onn of the most unique In
btijutlonH In tho city, It Is known as
tho "United Hebrew Charities Work
room." This woikroom has a unlquo
mission among tho poor Jewish wo
men of Chicago. It alms to give em
ployment to deserted wives and de
pendent widows, who havo children to
feed and clothe. It seeks to make
them self-supporting by teaching them
various kinds of needlework. And
lastly, It endeavors to educate them In
the decencies ot llt'e, to raise them In
their own esteem anil to give them
that det'iie for a certain social stand
ing so essential to tho happy woman's
I1ety day the rooms aie filled witli
women whose poveity and helplessness
are known to Supciintemlont Mdwaiil
Hubovits, ot the United Hebrew Chari
ties. They conic at !) o'clock in tho
morning and leave at I in the aftei
noon. These Iiouim allow them to com
plete all their household work botoio
leaving home, anrl to return in tune to
ptepaie the evening meal. The tasks
given them are not hard, and in pay
ment each receives T.'i cents a day.
The only diawback to the workroom
Is that it can accommodate no more
tluin fifty women at a time. The com
mittee must, thoieiore, perform its du
ties on principles of -.dentine charity
and according to the meuns at its dis
posal, It cannot be geneious. It can
only be just. In commenting on this
Superintendent Itubovlis says:
"Our manner of procedure is easily
explained. A ense appe.us and the
application Is taken. Then an investi
gation is made. This Is done for the
purpose of learning the hl.-toty of the
caso and to nseoitaln the cumes that
prompted the pcrs-on to ask lni asslst
muo, and also to enable the menibeiH
of tho committee to foim ,in opinion us
to what extent aid ohould be furnished.
Such Investigations frequently lead to
detection of intended Iraud, ,'omctlmes
to unworlhiness. On this latter point
I wish to say that the wumen who ate
taken Into the woikioom are all re
spectablo and upilglit morally, We do
not, n.s a rule, undertake our investiga
tions with tho precoiuelved Idea that
wo shall discover Us object to bo un
worthy, When wo discover It to bo
such, it Is quite accidental and vciy
disappointing, In that case, of course,
tho applicant Is roiuseit nld. Winn
tv have cause ineiely to .suspect that
something is wiong, we givo tho wo
nmn the bonellt of the doubt until
something further develops. Kvivy
worthy caso is taken up promptly, and
all possible assistance is grunted."
Tho woik furnished is chlelly that of
making men's neckties for tho whole
sale! establishments. The big munu
l.ii'Uliers fin nl.sh tho material, and pay
trom 15 to 2." cents u dozen fur having
