. D. Latta & Bro. announce a clos
ing sale of clothing to the readers of
The Observer this morning, in an ad
vertisement which is calculated to im
press every individual who will take
the trouble to look over it. Unless one
has kept up with the advance in the
demands of merchants engaged in this
particular line of goods, the mind fails
to conceive the large and beautiful
stock of goods which are annually sold
out to make 100m for the stock appro
priate for the succeeding season. Semi
annually the Messrs. Latta offer their
goods on hand at a sacrifice in the
spring and fall. In the spring to close
out their winter stock, and in the fall
to sell out the summer goods. In the
clothing business especially this is in
cumbent upon the live clothier, who
has made his profits on the earlier sales,
and who now sells at a sacrifice, in or
der to invest the money in spring goods,
on the principle that "a nimble sixpence
is better than a slow shilling." Bar
gains may be expected, and we predict
a prodigious sale, because the goods are
on the shelves, and they are to be sold.
Tne End Mat Yet.
A correspondent of the Mining Re
view gives some information which
will no doubt lift a great load from the
minds of the believers in Mother Ship
ton prophecies, etc. The writer says:
"The age of the planet is measured by
the amount of coal in the basins under
the grand prairies of the center of the
continent; by the amount of ore in the
iron mountains and hundreds of knobs,
hills and ridges of iron ores ; by the
vein system of the hundreds of basins
in the lead fields of the upper and low
er Mississippi ; by the veins grouped in
families that form the great silver and
gold belts of thi Nevada and Sierra
Madre. Think of the Appalachian
chain, with its mineral belt from Maine
to Alabama yet barely touched ; of the
silver fields of Central Mexico only
mined on the surface. In 1878 1 passed
an iron mountain in Central Mexico
as large as the Pilot Knob in Missouri,
and seventy miles to the nearest ranch
That mountain of ore was bared to the
same sun as shone upon the builders of
the Pyramids of Egypt, and has waited
all this time and must wait, possibly,
a century to come. Think of the iron
mountains of Wyoming of Lake Su
perior! The world is yet in its salad
days ; the north or south pole has not
yet been discovered ; Dr. Kane found
beds of lignite up to 75 degrees north ;
the Platonic or great year has only de
scribed one-sixth of its orbit, and that
has taken 4,000 years."

OsUllna- tne PreTloas Question
Several days ago a communication
was handed to the editor, which, by
some means, was misplaced. It has
just turned up, and we give it with
pleasure, as it is to the point and may
be considered applicable to the situa
tion: To the Editor of the Observer:
In reply to "Citizen" we are glad to
note that our worthy mayor favors "an
increase of taxes for permanent im
provement of our streets," also "for the
paving and curbing of some of the
streets, theproperty owners to pay half
tne expense: .Now, u our cnarter gives
the board of aldermen authority to
pave the streets and sidewalks upon
these conditions, why has not an ordi
nance to that effect been passed ? Why
has not the mayor urged the matter ?
We want good streets and certainly
need paved sidewalks. Let him at
once call a meeting of the aldermen
and push this matter. Thus far, they
have only met to repeal the ordinances
prohibiting the sale of liquor and of
cock-fighting. It is about time that
they do something in the way of im
proving the streets and walks. We
trust that some action will be taken at
