MAY BE you didn’t buy a Mackintosh yet, but enough people did to temporarily exhaust our stock. For you who waited there’s a fresh lot—just a little newer than the others, of course. The prices are from $4.50 to $15, but the one we show at $10 is the winner. There’s no excuse for your being without a Spring Overcoat. Styles were never so attractive, workmanship never so good— and price never so low as now. $7.50, $12, $15, $18. Five hundred pairs of Trousers—all spring styles and newest cut—take a price drop of one-third. Used to be $6, now $4. Used to be $9, now $6. Used to be $12, now $8—and every pair was really worth the original price. Boys’ Combination Suits with extra pair of pants, that usually sell for $5, are $3 here. Don’t forget that price- $3. The wearer of the Jaeger Sanitary Wool Underwear is in line with the most advanced hygienic laws. It is as fine as such goods can be made, and protects the wearer absolutely against taking cold. No need to tell you anything of the style and the quality of the Knox Hats—may be need to tell you that we have the complete line in stock. See that window full of I losiery — 2 pairs 25c. Come in and examine the quality you’ll buy. The Spring Suits in the corner window are not the spring suits we advertised a week ago-they’re gone. These are new— in material and style manv of them exclusive novelties. $7.50 to $25. GANS & KLEIN. THE MIES OF MONTANA. Th* Mayflower Ona of the Promising Properties in the Booming Basin Country.

There Mn be no doabt ae to the fetors of the mining districts of the Judith aud Moo-oasin mooutilna, says the Montana Democrat. There is not in Montana and the west sack another promising gold field. Na! alone are there mountains of gold bearing ore, bot of silver, lesi and copier. The Spotted Ho se needs no notice, neither the mines of the old Maginnis gr. . \ oui* ae the? give proof of the nobles* of the mineral-bearing veins of the Judith mountains. Men who abve devoted their lives to miniug know the wealth concealed in these mountains. There ere dozens of pir-tiell? devj.oped mines whose rich ore now exposed woald make their owners independent!? rich if the? onl? bai the means for its reinctioa. Bat the oaiups have been having "an uphill time” of it, and while capital bae be n seeking investment in lees rich regions of Montana, the Judith moanteius have beau to a greet extent overlooked. Yet the ore is there, its value is known, end sooner or later the fame of the mountains ae pro. duoera ef gold will be world wide, and compared to their wealth end greatness, the Bleak Hills will be insignificant. Capital ie needed to start the necessary work, bat this will come, and ono* tbs right kind of a ■tart ie bed there will be eaoh advancement as tbs most hopeful miners in the Judith little dream of. One of the richest strikM of late in the Judith monotaine wee made in the Northern Paoiflc min*, near Maiden, the pest week.

This ncn vein just discovered pleoes beyond all donht the Inters veins of the property, which is owned bv Cneriee Roads und Otto Anderson. There ere several more rich rn lase located in the neighborhood of Northern Pacific. A plant for the reduction of the ores from th# mine is ons of tho probabilities of the near future.
