How's This For
Some dealers are always trying to see how little they can give for
money. WE are always trying to see HOW MUCH we can give;
not because we're any better than they, but because it pays us.
PAYS US, mind you. It pays us because it brings new customers
and pleases our old ones. So you see our reason is a selfish one.

The flight was less than 100 feet, but
tho decent and final alighting on the

those of the bird from which the ma

SCHOOLS MAY CLOSE.
Impure Water Causes Illness Among
Chicago, Sopt 19. The public schools
of Chicago may bo closed at any mo
ment, on the order of Commissioner of
Health Kerr, because the water supply
afforded them by the board of educa
tion, without filters, is impure. Mon
day's rise of 2Vf inches has carried out
to the intake pipes of the various cribs
of the city all of the filth of tho sew
ers This, later, has been brought
back to the school children in the
drinking water w hich is offered to them
in the school buildings througli faw-
cets unprotected from tho contamina
tion of lake water.
The grand jury, now in session, has
been so seriously impressed by the ap
parent neglect of the board of educa
tion that it will investigate all crimi
nal neglect as to the character of the
water now coining to citizens. Ty
phoid, scarlet fever, diphtheria and
other diseases which quickly attack
the children of the schools arc now se
riously prevalent In all parts of the

WM. d. BflYAN
Greeted by nn Immense Crowd nt Rich
Richmond, Va., Sept. 19. In all his
career Wm. J. Bryan never received a
greeting so enthusiastic, so wildly de
monstrative as that given him by Rich
mond Friday night. Not even the re
coption at Columbus and Toledo, al
though they were greater by far in the
attendance, could compare in frantic
excess of partisan emotion to tho man
ner in which the great audience that
heard him Friday night gave him wel
come. Mr. Bryan's greeting at tho
railroad station when he reach Rich
m6nd at 7 o'clock from Goldsboro, N.
C, was flattering enough, but it was
as nothing beside his other and more
How many thousand people woru at
the station, it is impossible to sayrbut
there wero enough at hand to fill tho
surrounding streets. They shouted
with an energy inconsistent with tho
heat, and thronged about Bryan's ear
riago yolling frantically.
Tho candidate was whirled away to
tho residence of J. Taylor Ellison,
chairman of the state democracy.whcro
they gave him something to cut und
allowed him to recover a little from
tho offects of tho heat. Then ho was
whirled uway to tho place w hero ho
made his principal address.
The great auditorium of tho stato ex
position building was tho scene of tho
meeting, addressed by Mr. Bryan. It
is said that there aro 10,000 seats on
the iloor; several thousand more in tho
galleries aud that the grand capacity
with evory seat occupied, every bit of
aisle space filled, Is fully 18,000. But
Friday night tho basis for these esti
mates wero not available.

Tliutu is still no distict :i ovement

live buying of materials for future use

and tlii' Bank of England has not tried
to chock them by further advance in
rates, as the weight of the demand now
talis upon France. But t enormoua
usiaus is hold baU unt.l the future
! more clear.
Outside of speculative markets the
impression grows that certain and safe
revival may not be expected until No
vember. In cotton, hides, wool a-id pig iron
bu3'ing openly speculative i i character
marks tho current business
Resumption of work by a good part
of tho Full River cotton mills and ad
vances In some kinds of cotton goods
helped to raise the price of middling
uplands to 8c again, though realiz
ing sent it down to 8c.
W enkness in stocks was partly duo
to small earnings, St. Paul especially
reporting decrease and all reports for
September thus far (lecrease 10-G per
cent, from last year and 13.1 from lfa92,
returns being less favorable for the sec
ond than for the first week. The west
bound movement is light, especially in
dry goods and shoe, but eastbound
tonnage from Chicago lias been as
large as last year, uad four per cent,
larger than in lbDJ.
The one industry showing increases
of working force is the cotton manu
facturej restr'ction of outp-it having
secured more iibalthy demand for some
goods Most of the mills have started
or are about to start, though the uncer
tainty of the cotton market embarrass
es prices. I'ricc-. of staple goods have,
advanced so generally that the average
of r. preventative quotations are 15.7 per
cent, higher than in the llrjt week of
August. No such improvement is seen
in woolens, but the speculative buying
of wool, nearly all at lioaton, lias raised
sales to 17,77.5,330 pounds lor the past
three weeks against 17,l'i;,170 last
year and 21,572,100 In ISO..
Tho iron and steel manufacture is
still waiting for business with nearly
half its producing capicity idle, but
hopefulness and the speculative buying
ot pig iron sustain prices. Sales said
to amount to 25,000 tons havo been
made of Alabama iron for shipment to
England, but the home demand docs
not enlarge nt all.
Gold imports continue, over 85,000,.
000 having been ordered, making S.1G,
885,000 in all, of which about &24,8')0,.

ment draws oft' tho money about as
fast as it comes, 54,05J,000 having gone
