It doesn't follow that because a garment did cost $10 that it was worth it. It may not be worth its reduced price. You want to look at the quality; only in this way can you -be sure bargains won't be very dear to you. In our offers of cut prices to raise $10,000 by Jan. 1st we invite attention to our goods, we let them speak rather than the reduction. We simply mention the reduction to indicate that bargains are offered. We want you to test them by inspection. That is why we say, Come, look at the goods, rather than simply look at prices. It will pay you to come a long distance to this great sale. Truly yours, , The New England. 4^ /THE LOCAL FIELD. School closes Dec. 24. Ambrose Bowyer IB down with diphtheria this morning. December is being as pleasant as November was unpleasant. Miss Nettle Durant left this morning to spend the winter in California. Chicken pie supper at the Congregational church tomorrow evening. Josh Lantry of Minneapolis visited his brother three days last week. The Eastern Star chapter will meet next Tuesday evening in regular session. President Gates of Iowa college will address the editors when they meet in Algona. The Presbyterians are having a very successful fair in the Peter Purvis building today. • Kay Cook, son of E. R. Cook of Hobart, broke his arm' while skating on the river last week. The young man is getting on all right. The second • teachers' round table meets at Bancroft next Wednesday, Dec. 16. A series of meetings will. be held during the winter. They are proving very interesting. Rev. Innes has rented the Mclntyre house formerly occupied by Auditor Calkins. He and Mrs. Innes will begin housekeeping soon. They are the guests of A. D. McGregor. The school board met Monday evening, and besides ordering seats for the new school house, chose Ghas. Sarchett janitor for the building.. It is expected that it will be ready for the coming term. Rev. Southwell says the Methodist ministers had a successful district conference at LuVerne last week, and were hospitably entertained. LuVerne keeps the yellow-legged variety of poultry exclusively. Next Friday Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Benke of Lotts Creek will celebrate their golden wedding. They have been residents many years and have a hosl of friends. Three sons and two daughters have been born to them The coming term of court does nol promise many exciting cases. It is probable that the Fay Kenyon and N. J. Skinner criminal matters will come up. It is unlikely that the Russ-Lund land title cases will be ready for trial. W W. Adams, grandson off G. J. Adams, and Miss Mary E. Dutton, daughter of E. R. Dutton of Cresco, were married yesterday afternoon at the Methodist parsonage by Rev Southwell. Many good wishes go with them. Congressman Dolliver has decided to recommend Harvey Ingham's appoint ment to succeed J. W. Hinchon Bostmaster when his term of service expires. THE UPPER DBS MOINES hopes that the appointment will not be wholly unsatisfactory to the public. Richard Yorke was arrested in Whit temore last week for attempting to do personal Injury to a boarder at his res taurant, pamed Florence, and was fined bv Mayor Boyle$15. The fine.was, af SrwSdB remitted, The whole affair arose out of domestic trouble, of which Florence was the occasion. Mr, York has left his wife, he taking the restau rant stock and she the household goods They had R good business at WWtte more and were making money. H will wake his home in Algona, and w learp that she also expects to com here to live, .While in Fort Podge Friday w visited the shoe factory and the Heat oat meal mill. Both are big institutions. As fine a grade of shoes is being made at the Fort as is sold anywhere, all in the very latest styles. The oat meal mill has been running day and night for six months, and was loading a car for Duluth while we were present. It sent a train load of 13 cars to Seattle not long ago. Fort Dodge has grown into a city. It has great natural resources. It is now putting n the market stucco, coal, paving rick, fine pressed brick, brown sand- tone for buildings, fine pottery, shoes, atmeal, etc. It has some elegant omes, and an appearance of wealth nd solidity everywhere. Last week Charlie Winkle proposed o THE UPPER DES MOINES to prove lat all this talk about poor kerosene il is without foundation. His pro- osal was to treat the editor's lamp urners and wicks to a good boiling in /ater and lye, and if after that the amps smelled bad or did not give a right light, he would give it up. -If, owever, his plan did all it was ad- ertised to, due notice was to be given o the public. We are here for that urpose. The change was immediate, erceptible to the naked eye, refresh- ng to the nostrils. Boiling in water nd lye is what everybody's burners nd wicks need. As a timely caution we suggest to all who try it that they emember which lamps they take the mrners from. A farmer named Phillips, near Whittemore, attempted to roll a water ank down hill. A big chunk of ice lad frozen on one side and when it came on the upper side it added too much impetus to the down hill movement, the result being that Mr. 3 hillips was thrown, the tank running 1 over him. Besides being bruised his lip joint was dislocated, and one leg vas pulled up four inches shorter than ,he other. Dr. Morse was called at once, and went Sunday morning, get- ing Liveryman Norton to take him out. When within 20 rods of the house a horse slipped and broke its leg. The doctor walked on to the house and tried to pull Mr. Phillips' leg back to place, nit did not have strength enough, and ihen a pair of shafts were secured and ihe two drove home with one horse. Monday morning Drs. Morse and Stull went to attend to Mr. Phillips and Dr. Sayers to look after the horse. Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat. Dr. Preston, Thursday, Dec. 24.

Ho is opposed to spending any more time at Des Moines than is absolutely needed.
