A Bad Cj-clono Weak. Perhaps tho week just past has boon the most destructive one, tako the whole country through, in Ihe history of the country. Heretofore Uiosn dns-, truclivo tornadoes have been couliued to narrow belts or small areas of territory, lirst, perhaps, in Kansas, then after a period of safety, in Nobraska, Iowa, Minnesota or some southern suite or other section of tho country. But this lime vast areas in a do/.on stales wero visited about tho same time, or at least within three or four days. Kansas is the greatest sufferer this timo in loss of life ami properly, tho latest accounts placing the list of killed at upwards of fifty and the injured at fully 100. Nebraska also reports a number of fatalities and much damage to property. Iowa comes in for a share but with very little loss of life, though damage from high winds was considerable. Illinois suffered quite severely, both in life and property, tho wreck of a seven story building in Chicago killing eight or nine parsons and injuring many more. Both life and property were destroyed in other sections of the state, and in other states. If this desliunlio'i »hall only prove an introduction to an unprecedented cyelonc year tho people will live in constant dread from day to day. Lot us l.'opo that these distil-buncos are occasioned by tho transition from winter to spring and whey the .season is fully changed the elements will get down to tt.eir normal coudilion.

Parties owing us on account for Merchandise, or notes Due^ will greatly favor us by paying the same at once, or before April 18th. CAN'T BE BEATEN. That's just what's tho matter with our Boys' Suits-they can't he heaten. Look at them, from any standpoint you please, that's the conclusion you will come to. We don't say they can't be equalled in material and make, but we do say that there's nothing that comes within range of them at the prices. We pride ourselves on the great Selection and Variety in Two Piece Suits. School and Boys' Suits at from $1.20 upward. The prices we are naming are lower than you will find elsewhere, but we have extraordinary reasons for lessening our stock, and the quickest way to cut down our stock in a hurry is to cut down price* in a hurry. SPECIAL --Carl lloltcr goes to Chicago uexl Monday *.o purchase tho Boeond stock •of spiing clothing for tho Poslville Clothing House. —Hardy Barnes has beon down town this week. Glad to note it.
