tho corridor loungers into his confidence.
"Lndy says if this hotel cau't afford
a lamp to send up a gas stove and send
it quick," said tho bellboy, who had
made tho round trip in phenomenal
time. "She acts pretty hot."
"Pretty cold, I should think. Go back
there and open tbo register, show Die

how to tern off the electricity. Thank

The next word from 237 came with a

The Columbus team is still pntting

have been given a scare and taught a
lesson that they must patronize the

After a good fight of 20-ronnds'
duration Joe Bernstein, of New York,
gained a well-earned decision over
Eddy Santry, of Chicago, at the Ie
nox Athletic club, New York, last
night. Suutry showed to lietter ad
vantage than when he met George
Dixon in the same ring a few weeks
ago. He fought more ojienly, but he
had not . the strength of which his
rival was possessed.
When Sohuinaii. of the Omahas.
threw up his hands as a Western
league manager, he was in arrears to
his plavers about f 1,500. Van Brunt,
of St. Joseph, was ready to take the
club with a clean slate, so President
Johnson went to Milwaukee, and paid
the back salary with league funds.
The franchise and players are the
property of the league, Van Brunt
merely agreeing to carry the team to
the clnse of the season. The location
of the club in 18'.)9 will lie a matter
for the directors to decide, and it will
not lie at St. Joseph unless the at

that a clnb will be supported there.
Points About Paint Economy.
The liest way of doing good and
economical painting is a dark secret
to a great majority of people who do
a job of painting now and then, or
have to direct its doings, and a few
suggestions may 1 given which, if
acted upon, will lead to results that
will look better and last longer. In
the lirst place when a house is
painted, or other large job is under
taken, about two-thirds of the cost is
for labor. This cost is exactly the
same whether the paint . is good or
bad. whether it will wear for years or
chalk of! in a few months. A little
thinking over this side of the ques
tion will convince anyone of the econ
omy of buying good paint and the
wastefulness of investing in lead or
cheaper paints which are notorious
for chalking off easily.
For a number of years the paints
manufactured by the Sherwin-Williams
company have sustained a high
reputation for all kinds of painting,
inside and out, different ready-mixed
colors U-ing prepared by this com
pany for every special use. either iu
d oo is or exposed to the weather. A
gallon of their house paints covers
oOO square feet or more of surface in
average condition with two coats, and
from this point of view they are more
economical. But the greatest saving
is in the long time that the paint will
remain bright, aod that they do nil
the duties good paints are intended to
do longer than any . other. There is
also a good point to be considered in
having a paint properly prepared for
your purpose. There is a vast differ
ence, for example, lietween enamel
"paiut, floor paint, wagon paint, house
paint ana buggy paint. All of these
and others are specially prepared in
cans by the Sherwin-Williaius com
pany, all ready for use.
The safest paint-plan for any one
who desires to be independent and
safe is to go bv the laliel on the can.
The title of" the Shirwin-Williams
company is a guarantee of paint ex
cellence. A postal card addressed to
