Iu many instances the refusal to employ will be used as evidence 'to prove a blacklisting conspiracy among the roads. for Ci-om• Thirty-Five to Forty-Five Dollars:, and they will be worth all you pay for thorn and no more. You will always Uud that any goods you buy will be no better than tho price. A buggy properly repaired at a. reasonable price is much cheaper than a uew one for the -reason that If you trade your old buggy as part pay on a new one It will be, woE, just such a trade as you would make 'hi trading an old sowing machine on a now machine, tho man would be soUtag you the new nuiciilue and taking .the old one off'your, hands. .Now, 1C you will notice the following prices, you will dud that -tiie old buggy which in I'ls diila'pi'dat'tod coiKli'Uon Is of no value -to you, can bo mnu'c as good as new, at least as good a.* a new c-neap buggy, at a very small cost. The parts tha,t usually wear out are the wheels, tlie toj>, ami tho pa'tottag, wliich we can 1'ur- miMi you at the following prices, and give you as good goods as yo-u can get in a Sixty-Five Dollar buggy. Vi'e vri'll pu-t 011 a set of wheels for Six Dollars; we will put on a top for from Six Dollars and Fifty Cents, Eight Dollars ami Fifty Cents or Ten Dollars; we wiJl do a job of painting good enough for a repaired buggy for Six Dollars, or we will do a first-class job of painting for Eight Dollars. On this basis, for Eighteen or Twenty Dollars you can have your old buggy put in a condition that wiJl make It equal to a Sixty-Five Doilhir new buggy. Now, If you will consider that yo-nr old buggy, is oC no value to you in Its present condition, and virtually you can get nothing for it in trading it on a new one, you can pee plainly that virtually yon will have a new buggy at a very small cost. I am well equipped for building new buggies and repairing old ones, ami if you will call at my place oif bnsluess, 0.17-G23 Broadway, I will satisfy you that it will bo to your advantage to have your old buggy repaired. It will cost you nothing to investigate this matter, and if you find that there is nothing In it, there will be no harm done. GEO. HARRISON".

In one of the great retail grocery stores iu Chicago, a special pagoda or booth stands about the middle of Hie groat room wliich covers some acres in extent. This picturesque IWtle affair is built with ,1 counter and upper deck, the wliole structure being decorated \vith a soft white material gracefully draped and trimmed with navy blue cloth. An array of delicate Imported cups and saucers covers the front counter and the dainty after dinner coffee spoons and a good nat.ured, steaming coffee [Kit sceuis to indicate free coffee for the asking, but the familiar round red disk containing the words. "It makes red blood" announces to all newspaper readers that Postum, the grain beverage which looks so rmich like coffee, fe being served by an attractive young lady. The exhibition of Fostum continues by the year in the lai'go stores in Chicago and the celebrated food drink Is used by many ot Chicago's best famines in the place of coffee, Postum has established a position for itself by pure merit, and Is known as a distinct beverage, with IU own pungent flavor and nourishing properties. Ton is a beverage, Cliocolaite ,is a beverage, Coffee Is a beverage and- Postum is n beverage, all being dissimilar and all having their own peculiar merits. The last named is made of pure grains and is easy to digest and has a marked tendency -to fatten when used by thin people, after discarding- coffee.

Made by the California F'~ ~)yrup Company. comu'c t i o:j the Wild Exhibition. which will be given liiTc soon, there will be n remarkable C'ongi'o.^s o!.' Rough Riders ot the World, including Cossacks from the Russian steppes, Bedouin Arabs from the African desert,, Gauchos fronih South America, redskin warriors fi-oni the western plains. Of all these the Mexican Vaqueros ore the gaudiest among Tlie rough riders; but they are not tu be underestimateJ on 'i'hat account, for they rank well up with the cowboys as lariat-throwers and horsemen. Indeed they do things with the lairiat, fancy niaiinvers. showing their 'control of it. which none others iu tlie ontii.t attempt. Their saddles may be viewed as (lie extreme opposite of the Indian's which is practically nothing. The Mexican saddle has not so large a pummel, or cantlo as that of the cowboy, but has a. big, heavy frame, and is made a conspicuous tiling by its gaudy decoration. Very often it Is of fancifully embossed leather, sewed with silver thread and adorned with heavy plates of sUver. ami the vaquero trta; to dress up to his saddle, wearing surprising qua nir.it ies of! silver buttons ami silver, or even gold, embroidery on bis jacket and hat. Big as it fe made to look die Mexican saddle is not really so large or so heavy as that which ample experience lias caused the cowboy to settle upou as the perfect type, one very high both front and roar, with a. hill, strong pumaiwl, upon whicli he may take a half-hitch, with his lariat when roping a steer, rand big enough to let him free his leg when a vicious bronco falls backward upon him, a by n-i i leans rare occurrence. The frame of'the cowboy's sadcHc is broad and high arched, keeping the rider's weight off the animal's spine, and eunblmg ventilation. Tlie equipment of the other rough riders is peculiar and interesting in many other directions. Another variety of skillful horseme which participate in the maneuvers o the Wild West entertainments include tlte soldier- horsemen of live, great na Lions, ponderous Germaai Cuirassiers da^hi'ng French Cavalrymen, haudsom Royal Irish Lancers of England am. Uncle Sam's' own Cavalry boys. Thes of themselves would furnish an enter tainmcnt well worth the price of ad mission charged to the Wild Wes Show. Clearance Sale of Ties.
