Smith Conners and Henry Parker of
Ellwood were arrested soma days ago fro
blackmailing an old man named Baker and
on Saturday last two men named Cunning
ham, one of whom w&s a policeman were
arrested as being implicated in the affair.
When the two New Castle officers who
made the last two arrests went to the
Pittsburg and Western depot at Ellwood
with their prisoners a curious complication
arose by the appearance of the Deputy
Sheriff of Butler county, who hail a bench
warrent for the arrest of the ex-policeman.
The latter some time ago went to Zelieno
ple with a political parade and while
there got into a row with one of the na
tives of that place. He drew his mace
and gave the Butler man a clubbing. As
he was out of his jurisdiction the victim
of the dabbing brought an action of aggra
vated rssault and battery against the ex
policeman, who gave bail tor the Butler
His bondsman threw up the bail on Fri
day evening and i bench warrent was is
sued. Officer Marahall who is the county
detective ol Lawrence ccunty refused lo
give up his prisoner, having first served
tha conspiracy warrent, and quite a dis
cussion arose and some high words follow
ed, the Lawrence county officer winning
in the end, and landing his two men in
Sew Castle. Here they gave bail for a
hearing, which will take place in Elwood

Wish there was some way we
could send every woman reader
of this paper samples of these all
silk Black Brocades at SI.OO
without waiting for her to write
for them, and then a good many
more would get them than other
wise, and a great rush -of orders
would be the result thereof—
these are silks of such unusual
worth—good and heavy and choice
handsome patterns, such as will
produce results whether the wo
man "/ho comes in contact with
them has any thought of buying
silks or not—22 inches wide—
will you write for them?
Other Black Brocades at 50, 60
75c up to $3.00 a yard, and every
piece in the assortment was well
bought both as to price and de
sirability, but for superior worth
there's none can equal the above
mentioned line at #1 00.
A collection of good Black
Silks at 50c a yard, every yard of
which is worth at least half as much
more—Peau de Soie, Faille Francaisse,
Radzimirs, Armure, Rhadame, Satin
DucLesse etc—all desirable weaves and
quality that will speak for itself.
Moire Velours, or as some folks call
them—Moire Poplins—are very desirable
for skirts—Bsc, JJi.oo and $1.25; extra
wide— 32 inch ones; $2.00 and $2.50.
Plain fine solid black Imported Wide
Wale Diagonals, 50 inches wide 50c —
goods that have absolutely] more worth
than ever before sold for half a dollar.
Hundreds of pieces of fine black goods
choice novelty weaves—stripes, cords
and figures, at 75c, that not only the
quality and price, but the style of will
set people wondering how on earth any
store can Accomplish such a thing.
