EXCLUSIVE CULTURE, CARPET AND
Ode of the largest and most notable mercantile
institutions on the continent.
The acres of iloor space contained in this magnificent store
are filled with a quarter million dollar stock selected -with great
care from the leading manufacturers of Europe and America.
You marvel that wo arc enabled to maintain successfully
so great an establishment devoted to the sale of Piirnituro, Oar
pets and Curtains only.
This is' accounted for by the fact that wo keep "sawing
wood."
"We place before our customers only reliable goods.
"We mark our goods in plain figures at the lowest net cash
prices.
AYc do not take back or exchange goods, thcrcforo custom
ers know that we do not send out goods that have been used.
"We do not cater to a select few by making special prices
and offering special accommodations to special individuals. Our
prices are especially low to everybody alike.
Everyone entering our store is placed on the same footing.
A child can buy of us just as cheap as the experienced
buyer.
The man who buys one hundred dollars' worth of goods of
us pays the same price as the man who buys five thousand; and
the five thousand dollar customer obtains just as low a price as
it is possible to obtain from any other one house in the country.
Our methods
confidence and patronage of the entire Southwest.
Business is Business! We realize the fact that the public
is not influenced by sentiment. Wo arc therefore compelled to
offer a superior stock at the lowest possible prices, and all we
ask is a careful examination of our inducements.

to stop the lottery business, that had gtown

that subject some years ago h Kansas

In the business, and tho people of that sec

should be pissed. It was practically the
same as had passed the senate, and ho be
lieved that if the house would pas the
1111 .is amended by tho committee on Ju
diclaiy, it would be ttgiCLd to by tho sen
ate. The bill passed without visible opposition.
Later In tho day Mr. Hroderlek advised
Senator Hoar of tho house action, and the
latter was much gratllled over the fact,
ami, on being shown the slight amendment,
said that ho would see that the senate
agreed to the changes made, and there
would be no doubt but that the bill would
becoiuo u law, unless there should bo some

Ciutrle, O. T., March 1 -(Special ) The
committee which has been Investigating
the Icrrllorlil iigrlciiltur.il college nt Still
water submitted a teport (o-diy together
with the report of the expert accountant
emplojed to go through the books of the
Institution. The report Is sensation il
from beginning to end. doing back to the
foundation of the college In ISS'J the com
mittee sins that tho llrst thing tho board
of tegenis elld was to begin etnplovlng
each other ns agents of the Institution at
big salaries In Nov ember of that oar
John A. Wlmbeilv, of their number, was
appointed siiperlut, ndent of construction
ut buildings and ns such drew r per ihiv
continually until the following May, though
the only buildings , reeled In this time was
one small frame dwelling house and b.iiu.
The ver da lie stopped drawing his sal
try he was appointed purchasing agent
of the Institution at the same salir. It
seems this agent could not spend the
money fast enough, for a mouth later,
utter allowing bills contracted by him In
the sum of $l.',lm, another one of his
board, J. P. I.iue, was appointed an ad
ditional puiehaxlng agent ut f.1 per day.
Among the tilings purchased was a team
for J.T0 that was soon after sold for con
sldeiable less than half tint amount The
purclia-liig agents in inaged to get In live
or sK dis at ?" a day in buvlng tills
team nnd Wlmberly allow, d his brother
I.1M for driving them to Stillwater, about
tlftv miles. Tin- iiLt act was to buy n
blind man- for $12, tln-v unit to K uis.is
and purchased some line cattle fur "'),
their expenses amounting to over $KD mote
md the cattle were soon sold for ?JT0,
SIS'j was pilil for line hogs, the puicli.islng
agent drawing JWJ addition il for Ids serv
ices. Soon after tin- whole bo ml went to
visit the agricultural college nt Mtuih it
tnn, Kas , e.u li one dialling Jl(l for this
trip and then each membei was sent to
visit a college in some distant state.
These ate .i few of the tilings done bi
lbo Hepiiiillc.iu boird of regents and when
tho Demoeiats got eontiol tin- at once
put ill as siipeilnteudent of farming it
$(i a month a man who knew nothing
about fanning The ollire eif college -,., -n
tary was created for a political wotker
who was wholly untitled for such work
and not even a bookkeeper. lie was nli
ent for weeks at a time and despite this
fait and that tin knew th it tor over
two mouths previous to th it time a .veiling
lady had been doing all ills work for $1
pei week, tile raise-d his sal uy fiom

heon deposited with tin- bulk ol w lilch tle
goveiuor (w ho Is alo president of the
boird of regents) Is piesldent and the ter
rltor nor college has lecelved no benefit
therefrom.
Tin- whole aim of the men who have con
trolled the college seemed to be to get as
much out of it as possible for themselves
and their friends. Thousands of clollirs
have been pent for which theie Is no
accounting whitever and tiiou-ands moie
for useless supplies and njip ir.itus with
larger amounts squandered as salaries,
commissions and expenses.
Over thlrtv thou-nnd dollars a eir
has been spent In I nulling the Institution,
which, much of the time has had an at
tendance of less than 100 students, who re
ceive their tuition free. One of the clos
ing sentences of the committee's report Is.
