New York, Oct. S. W. Averill Harri
man, just twenty-one years old, has
set the old speculators of Wall street
guessing as to how he will cast his de-1
'elding vote in the cutting up and dis
tribution of the juiciest kind of a j
melon that has been heard of in a
long time. The Union Pacific ra'lroad,
which was the pet road of the late
I K. H. Harriman, his father, has accumu-
,n'.d a surplus of $oi, 000.000. To this
i added the $81,000,000 cold cash
iMch came into the coffers of the
railroad with the sale, by court orders,
of the Southern Pacific railroad.
Now young Harriman. Yale 1913,
holds the deciding vote in the distri
bution of this vast sum of money, and
Wall street, with mouth all a-water for
the taste of the melon, is waiting to
see just what the rosy-cheeked student,

MEN'S and YOUNG MEN'S
In these days oi "Good Clothes Making" it would be the height of folly for any
one house to lay claim to handling the only good suits made for men and young men.
The evolution of the Ready-to-Wear Clothing business has produced a class of fai
lors altogether unknown a few years ago and the average wearer of Ready-to-Wear
Clothes of the better sort is sure to be at least as well dressed as his neighbor. But
there's always some house making its garments just a little better and from the
names quoted below you'll see that M. & K. were careful to select that kind for every
class of clothes.
The Story of
the Raincoat and
Developed Into the
Topcoat as Well
When the serviceable, light and neat
"slip-on" raincoat became popular and
was included in the outfit of every man
who made any pretense of keeping
abreast of the times, it became a prob
lem as to whether the raincoat or the
top coat should be taken along by a man
on a journey. He couldn't use the top
coat in the rain but he could use the
raincoat as a topper and so the raincoat
has taken the place of the top coat al
together and must do double duty.

AT THE EMPIRE.
"The Five Lunatics in a School
House Riot" is the program title of
the act assigned to the headline posi
tion on the bill for the last half of
the week at the Empire. The program
states further that "they're crazy."
You will almost agree that they are
when you see them. It's a slapstick
affair, with a lot ot unintelligible
shouting and throwing of things and
dancing. One of the young men has
a pleasing singing Toice, but when he
ai empts to use it the other "bugs"
make so much racket that you can
barely hear him. If the young man's
associates would remain silent during
his Tocal efforts they would better sat
isfy their audience than try'ng to tear
down the house w-hile he is endeavor
ing to hold the center of the stage.
Polzin brothers are acrobats with some
new stunts. They got more applause
last night than any other act on the
bill, and they deserved it. Rice and
Franklyn offer a comedy skit, "Won by
Ten;" Leo Piersanti mviipuiatea an
accordeon artistically, and Edrar Fore
man & Co. appear in a playlet under
the title of "The Menace,"
There is plenty of variery to the
bill a the Family. Mo'.'ne the last

them being the "Blue Danube," Inter-

and excerp:s from the most atpular

STRENGTH AND AC
TIVITY. It is useless, dangerous and unnec
essary to be tortured with the digging,
twisting pains of backache or suffer
disagreeable nidney and bladder dis

promptly and sureiy relieve all such
Croxone masters these troubles be
cause it quickly reaches the cause of
the disease. It soaks right into the
stopped up, inactive kidneys, through
the membraces and linings; 'cleans out
th little filtering glands; neutralizes
and dissolves the poisonous uric acid
and makes the kidneys filter and sift
from .the blood the waste and poison
ous matter that clog the system and
cause such troubles.
It does not matter whether you have
but slight symptoms or a chronic, ag
gravated case, it is practically impos
sible to take Croxone without results.
An original package of Croxone costs
but a trifle, and all druggists are au
Jjor'zed to return the purchase pric
if ycj are not entirely satisfied the
first time you use it. tAdr.)
Only a Crime When One Filohsa From
Plagiarize all you please, provided
you steal from the right sources, for
the secret of individuality is familiar
ity with the masters. The great gen
iuses were meant to bo objects of
plagiarism. To be plain, the more you
absorb of a first class mind the more
your own originality is fed. Plagia
rism is only a crime when it is a
theft of commonplaces from mediocre
Let the young musician soak full of
Beethoven, Wagner, Mozart and Men
delssohn. That is the surest way for
him to find himself. To absorb comic
opera music is the way to smother,
lose and kill himself.
Let the young preacher preach Bush
nell, Robertson and Brooks. So doing,"
he will come to preaching himself.
As for writers, there is truth in the
advice given by a great man that the
best way to acquire a good style is to
read Addison and exercise oneself in
endeavoring to rewrite him.
You cannot plagiarize ,the bible, nor
Shakespeare, nor Homer, nor Dante,
nor Milton. These have ceased to be
men; they are humanity. You can
plagiarize Shaw, or Bret Harte, or the
last "best seller.'
To isolate onself from the masters !
is not the road to originality; It la :
the road to vulgarity. !
