the sugar trust sav the market l

The famine is felt quite severely iu

a rarity on the south side as any

TOOK HIGH HONORS.
W. W. Kimball's Pianos and Organs Rank
First at the World's Fair.
As will be seen by reference to the
telegraphic columns of today's Ar
gus, W. W. Kimball, of Chicago, was
awarded first honors on pianos and
organs at the World's Columbian ex
position today. The news that this
great Chicago musical instrument
manufacturing house has won such
distinction will carry joy to many
tri-city homes where instruments of
the kind that have won the prizes in
competition with the world have been
placed by D. Roy Bowlby, who has
the local agency for the successful
house. The action of the World's
fair judges stamps the Kimball in
strument as the finest made, and at
the same time Chicago carries off the
palm again in the possession of the
factory, which in itself brought about
a rivalry between the east and the
west with victory to the west at last.
The 1. neal AKeney.
People desirous of seeing pianos
and organs in great a variety of exact
ly the same style as those which tri
umphed at Chicago may have an op
portunity by calling at 1). Roy Bow 1

AT THE THEATRE.
'La Maseotte" Preseuted For the Kuigrhts
of Pythias" Ueuelit.
The large audience which greeted
the presentation of Audrains' comic
opera. "La Maseotte. at Harper s
theatre last evening, was decidedly a
compliment to St. Paul lodge, Knights
of Pythias, under whose auspices the
performance was given, and who, no
doubt, appreciate the evidence of
public good will thus bestowed. But
the Knights should in no way be
charged with the nature of the per
formance that was given. The com
pany, which appears to be the rem
nants of the well-known Andrews
company, and holding, however
some of the best people is responsible
for one of the most listless, tire

All of the above goods are strictly perfect, nnd were neither man
ufactured or imported on contract of sale. The serious money dis
turbances during July and August made it simply impossible for
some purchasers to carry out their contracts, while in other in
stances the credit of the buyer was doubtful, and the auctioneers
got the benefit of the doubt. We were fortunate enough to be there
during September when these goods were in the auction rooms, as
thousands of pounds of fresh bargains just received last week will -testify;
also many tons more of the same kind of bargains are now
in transit and will be on our counters during this week. Some of
the lots are small, others are large. Come in as often as you can
and get early selections as the goods are opened up.
