Gayhart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. I. Gay- hart, -were married by Rev. J. A. Richards, father of the groom, Thurs day, Xovember 17, at high noon at the bride's home at 125 West Twenty second street. The bride and groom descended the stairs to the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, played by Miss Neva Eddy, and were met at the foot by Rev. Richards and con ducted to the bay window where they stood under a bell suspended by white ribbons, held by the bride's little nephew and niece, Albert Shinn and Frances Orall. After congratulations a dainty uncheon was served. A number of handsome presents were received by the young couple. Mr. and Mrs. Rich ards left Friday for Fort Scott, which place will be their future home. The wedding was quite a large af- .'air, aud a great many of the guests present were from out of town.

Topeka Capital. The bride is well and favora bly known in this city and is a neice of World's family.l Wednesday night of last weektheie was an attempt at robbery in Frank iin township which escaped the vigi lance of the newspaper rustlei. An old gentleman, A. Bowser, who lives by himself on what was formerly known as the Jim" Curtis farm, had just extinguished- his light and re tired, when there was a knock at the door. Answering the summons, he was informed by the parsons outside that they had met with an accident and wanted a light that tfiey might see to repair the damaged vehicle. Mr. Bowser told them he had nothing but a lamp, the chimney of which was broken, and that it would not burn any length of time: he told them to come and see for themselves, if they did not believe what he said, and throwing the door opeu he stepped back to make way for them to enter. They were no sooner inside than they dropped their guns in his face and commanded him to throw up his bands, and for the first time the old gentleman observed that his visitors were masked. They at once bour.d their victim, with his hand behind his back, and while one stood before him with a cucked revolver pointed full at his breast the other proceeded to search the house for money, which they supposed he had received from recent sales of grain. Tne old man protested that he did not want the shooting iron in close proximity with his body, but it did not seem to make any difference with the night prowl ers who made all kinds of threats to extort information as to where the old man's wealth was concealed, but evidently they had to give up the job without, accomplishing their purposed robbery. They took Mr. Bowser out doors in his night clothes, still under the muzzles of their revolvers, and, turning him loose, made their way o.T, telling the old man to get back into the liouse, which he did without necessary delay. Mr. Bowser is about sixty-seven years old, and, being a bachelor, lives alone. lie chanced to have very little money in his house, and although the roblers turned everthing "upside down" and rumag ed every drawer and box in the house their search was fruitless. Mr. Bow ser is confident that he knows at least one of the robbers, having; rec ognized his voice, but whether any arrests will be made we are not at this time advised; the only hint as to identity is tliat the suspect is a mar ried man. 5ess City News.

What is the use of making a better article than your competitor if you cannot get a better price for it? Ans. As there is no difference in the price the public will buy only the better, so that while our profits may be smaller on a single sale they will be much larger in the aggregate. How can you get the public to know your make is the best? . . If both articles are brought prohii nently before the pubjic both are cer tain to be tried aud the public will very quickly pass judgment on them and use only the better one. This explains the large sale on Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. The people have been using it for years and have found that it can be depend ed upon. They may occasionally take up with some fashionable novelty put forth with exaggerated claims; but are certain to return to the one reme dy that they know to be reliable, and for coughs, colds and croup there is nothing equal to Chamberlain's Coush Remedy.
