The reporter saw John L. at his

was that there was going to be fine;

that there was great

and that he was going to have a bunch j
of "the boys" down soon. j
The reaeon for this obvious evasion .
of important matters? Well. Mrs. John '

Finally John arose, took his caj, and!
remarked that ho was soing out to pee

Aledo, Sept. 23. The largest
crowd ever assembled on the Mercer
county fair grounds enjoyed the day
Friday. The ideal weather added to
the pleasure of the day, and peo
ple came in their autos from Gaiva
and other neighboring cities and ev
ery train was filled to its capacity.
An excellent race program was given
and the aeroplane flight was the chief
feature of the afternoon. Two acci
dents occurred during the races, but
the aviator made a successful flight.
FIVE POILTRV SHOW.
Tne poultry show is worthy of j
special mention, as the exhibit con
sists of 1,200 birds, Including al
most every choice variety known. A
display of 380 birds by Mr. Leavittj
of Lewiston Is shown and H. E. j
Bates of Galesburg has his choice;
Buff Wyandottes, which took the first!
premium at the world's fair in St.!
Louis. Among the curiosities are a '
four-legged rooster and a three-leg-!
ged duck. j
Professor A. McPherson, a well-)
known alfalfa expert, gave a talk at
the fair grounds Friday on "Better
Farming and Alfalfa Growing,"
which was of interest to many.
Among those who are showing their
fine horses, are Albert Zwicker and
Son of Preemption, the Hamlet
Horse company, Hamlet, 111., C. V. ;
Bridgford of Millersburg, C. A.I
Clark of Sherrard, Frank Curry of '.

great interest to the children. j

COURTEOUS ATTENTION TO ALLu
2; Set Over (Lewis Fender) 3. Time
New York, Sept. 23. At a
lengthy and lively session of the
New York 6tate athletic commission
the license of the National Sporting
club, of which Tom O'Rourke is man
ager, was revoked and after an ex
tended hearing, Charley White, the
referee, was exonerated from charges
preferred against him following the
recent Flynn-Morris fight in Madison
Square garden. In the National
Sporting club's case it was stated thal
the revocation was because of a
faulty lease of the building in which
the club holds its bouts. The hear
ing on the White charges took up the
major portion of the session. White
appeared in response to a summons
to explain why he had not stopped
the Flynn-Morris-bout after the sev
enth round, when Morris, the gigan
tic western heavyweight, had been
well beaten. "Morris was a high
strung man," said White, "and
while a novice, knew a good deal
more than he was given credit for.
At the end of the second round, how
ever, he made the amateurish mis
take of blowing hi3 damaged nose In
stead of inhaling and his face be
came inflated. I have refereed over
7,000 fights and I had sufficient confi
dence in myself to allow the bout to
go to the end of the scheduled tenth
round, as I knew the big fellow was

not in any danger." The state box
ing commissioners, both of whom
were wituesses of the contest, honor
ably exonerated White. The question
of the validity of the lease held by
the Madison Square Athletic club on
the Madison Square garden, was con
sidered, but no action will be taken
until Monday. Commissioner Dixon
said that he had received a request '
by telephone from Governor Dix's
secretary to vote for revocation of
the Madison Square club's license but
refrained from telling how his vote
would be cast.

A Tax Exempt Stock That
Pays 7 Dividends
As typical of the best and most up-to-date practice in the central electrical
Station industry in our larger cities, there is no investment more worthy of
investigation than the stock of the Commonwealth Edison Company of Chicago.
Notwithstanding its astonishingly rapid growth and its present strategic position,
this Company is as yet doing only a fraction of the business that it will do
in the near future.
The Co-amonweaIth Edison Company is at present retailing electricity in a
territory that covers 200 square miles, but that territory is only "tapped," so to
speak. There is expert authority for the statement that three times the piesent
volume of business should naturally come to the Company's Central Station.
Yet, gigantic as is the retail business of the Commonwealth Edison Company,
it forms only one-third of its total business, two-thirds of which is wholesale. It
supplies electricit3' to 1250 miles of street and elevated railway track and its ser
vice to smaller Central Stations extends b3 miles to the north, 55 miles to the soutt
and 35 miles to the west of Chicago.
A very considerable portion of the Company's wholesale business is concerned
in the sale of electricity for light and power to manufacturers. In this field there
is still opportunity for a vast increase of business in replacing private power plants
with the more economical Central Station service.
The Commonwealth Edison Company represents an investment of over
$70,000,000, and is paying dividends at the rate of 7 per annum on its capital
stock. The future prospects of this stock are indicated by the recent advance in
the dividend rate from 0 to 7. At the present market price of about $130.00
per share, the net return to the investor is about While the stock was pay
ing 6 dividends it sold at averaee prices that yielded a smaller net return. This
justifies us in the belief that Commonwealth Edison stock is now a more desirabia
investment than ever before.
Commonwealth Edison stock is listed on the Chicago Stock Exchange.
We recommend this stock as an investment of exceptionally high character,
paying 7 dividends, and as leing exempt from taxation under Illinois laws.
Full information will be gladly supplied in answer to all inquiries.
