Commencing with the first day of
December, the subscription rate for
The Daily Akgcs will be only 10
cents a week, a redaction of 2 cents
from the present price. At the same
time the weekly system of collecting
will be inaugurated in place of the
monthly. Instead of a regular col
lector calling on subscribers once a
month, collections will be made by
the carrier boys on their respective
routes every Saturday. All sub
scription accounts will be balanced
up to Dec. 1. and a new account
opened with each subscriber on the
Iajr t and Mtart Over.
It is therefore imperative that all
arrearages be paid up in full as soon
after this month as possible. To
that end we request all our patrons
to have whatever thev owe nnt
Dec. 1 ready for the collector when
he calis, and also to remember the
carrier will call each Saturday. By
following I he request hereby made,
subscribers will confer a great favor.
as the change m collection periods
will entail much work and more or
less confusion until the weekly plan
is fully established, when, we are
satisfied, it will prove not only more
saiisiactory to ourselves, but also to
the patrons of The A ho cm, than tlic
system now in vorrne. There lias

lieve that they were all done by the same
person, but there was no el'.-w that they
could follow to catch the thief. After
amassiug a jrcoTIly qnautity of food on
which to start to housekeeping the thief
began on fuel, an.l whole cartloads were
carried away, each cise showing the evi
dences of t'ae food thief. When a fall
supply of coal was taken, the thief turned
his attention to furniture and .carried
off articles of all kinds, from light chairs
to a heavy bedstead wish laiittrt-ssea. An
entire bedroom set (was taken from a
house and 30 trace left. The family
was absent for a night, and on their re
turn tiiey found their room despoiled.
Having f:iniislied his bedroom and

By this time the police were fully alive
to the fact that the stealing was going
on right under their noses, and they be
gan to talk about the queer thief. This
attention seems to have Gattered the
thief, for he signalized his presence next
by carrying off a large liaseiniriier stove
from a parlor iu Kansas City, Kan.,

Another pua.se, however, seems to

member of the thief's family has sick
ened and died. A few days ago a drug:
store was broken into and medicine
taken, and last night the climax was
reached when the thief went to the cem
etery out on the Quindare boulevard and
carried off a fine tombstone. There is a
talent here that shows the development
of a system that would beat a bank, and
the police are very anxious to make the
acquaintance of the thief. Cor. St.
