Sitting at home to save shoe-leather is econo my, but it is scarcely wisdom. In the same way, doing: without Ivory Soap is economy but it isn't wise; your risks are greater than all possible saving. Every cheap soap contains free alkali. Now, free alkali will eat its way through the new oil cloth on the kitchen floor Imagine then what it will do in a single Monday's wash ing!

'. KLONDIKE SALOONS. Eleven in Full Blast in Spite of Gov. Stanley. The Kansas Issue, the official organ of the State Temperance union, in the cur rent issue, has the following informa tion from a special correspondent con cerning the actual conditions in the Klondike at Leavenworth, which At torney General Godard says has been suppressed: "There are now eleven saloons run ning wide open. In addition to these there are thirteen houses of prostitution and numerous other low dives and gam bling dens, the latter being- particularly frequented immediately after pension day at the Soldiers' home. "Outside of the Klondike and along the Pike are road houses f the vilest kind. The community about the Sol diers' home, where many of the nation's veterans must spend their last days, is a seething mass of tha foulest corrup tion. "These are the facts in the case. The temperance people of Kansas hav asked for the facts have demanded them and the union has responded in state ments which are conservative as com pared with the real c&nditions which exist. "The union is a non-partisan organi zation. It has no desire to antagonize any official or any party; but it must deal with facts, regardless of whatever party may be in power. "The Klondike can and ought to be absolutely suppressed. Leavenworth, Wichita, and other law-nullifying cities should be made to feel the etrong arm of the law. Kansas needs, more than anything else, officials, high and low, who will faithfully and honestly re spet their official oaths and enforce the laws in every locality without fear or favor."

Idea Being Received With Faror In All Sections. MR. FROST IS PLEASED. Work of Securing Outside Sub scriptions Ready. After $50,000 is Secured Legis lature Will Be Appealed To... The officers of the Kansas Semi-Cen-tennial Kxposltion feel gratified with, the prospect aa it appears just now. A short time ago notices were sent to the county commissioners of each, of the counties in the state requesting that a vice president be appointed to represent their county. Fifteen replies have been received. From letters received from all over the state it is gathered that the vice presi dents, will all be elected and duly ap pointed by the association within a short time. The fifteen counties from which vice presidents have been chosen follow: Bourbon county. Prof. T. B- Long shore. Butler county, R. H. Hazlett. Cherokee county, James H. Elliott. Klk county, C. F. Osborne. Finney county, E. J. Pyles. Gove county, S. S. Reynolds. Graham county, D. J. Hanna. Jefferson county, G. L. Horning McPherson county, A. W. Smith. Pottawatomie county, A. H. Knecht Saline county, A. P. Collins. Shawnee county. Col .A. S. Johnson. Smith county, Schuyler C. Stevens. Washington county, S. T. Yoder. Wyandotte county, James F. Getty. John E. Frost, president of the asso ciation, said to a State Journal reporter this morning: "We feel encouraged with the way the people have taken hold of the matter. With the first of the week we will probably begin taking sub scriptions over the state. After secur ing subscriptions to the capital stock of the company to the amount of $50,000 we will be prepared to ask for an appro priation from the legislature. "Our correspondence shows that the plan is meeting with favor all over the state and tliat the legislators are nearly all heartily in favor of the project. It will without doubt be the best stroke of advertising Kansas has ever received. It will induce visitors to the exposition to invest new capital in the state and will be a great help in increasing the popu lation." F. IX Coburn, chairman of the com mittee of publicity and promotion, has had made in Chicago recently for his own use in the office of the department of agriculture of the state of Kansas same stickers advertising the exposition. The idea was original with Mr. Coburn and at a meeting of the committee which will be called soon after the elec tion the plan for the stickers will be adopted and the stickers will be printed in quantities. This will be one of the most effective methods of advertising the exposition. Besides being placed on all the letters sent from the state of Kansas they may be given to commercial travelers who will stick them up in conspicuous places in other cities. When a person goes east on a. busi ness or pleasure trip he may put a. wad of stickers in his card case and when buying a cigar will stick an exposition advertisement on the slot machine. Likewise when he uses the telephone a sticker may be put on the 'phone, and in this manner the stickers will be put up where they will always attract the attention of business people and others who may become interested and come to the exposition. The officers of the centennial associa tion are: President John E. Frost, Topeka. Vice President-at-Large W. E. Stan ley, Wichita. Treasurer J. W. Breidenthal, Topeka. Secretary H. M.

M. Philips, of the mid- continental, 1904, exposition, has given out the following: "At the great mid-continental expo sition which Is to be held in Topeka in 1904, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Kansas' organization as a territory, the state will have such an opportunity to put her best foot forward as never before. This will be made a national, and, in fact, an international affair, in which the people of the whole country are expected to participate, ana accord ingly congress will be called upon by the Kansas delegation to push it along with an appropriation of not less than a mil lion dollars. "Of course Kansas can not ask con gress to do this until she as a state has shown in an unmistakable substantial way through her own legislature a proper appreciation of the undertaking. For this reason if no other it is ex pected that every senator and represen tative elected to the incoming leglsla ture will consider it a patriotic duty to help forward promptly every necessary measure tor promoting the exposition. The minimum amount thought of as the state's help is $250,000 or $300,000, and this can be so distributed in the levies cov ering the next three or four years as to be scarcely appreciable to any taxpayer, rich er poor, in any year. "The exposition undoubtedly is to pre sent Kansas to the rest of the world in such a favorable light as has never been dreamed of even by her own people, but to succeed it must have the loyal, -ac tive and constant Support of every man ami woman in Kansas.

I 1 ,w-ti?k T' --: .- - T " s - 1 1 ' I nl f 1 When a chrerful, brave and light-hearted woman is sud denly plunged into that perfection of misery, the tluea, it is a sad picture. It is usually this way : She has been feeling out of sorts for some time, experi encing severe headache and backache ; sleeps very poorly and is exceedingly nervous. Sometimes she is nearly overcome bv faintness, dizzi ness, and palpitation of the heart ; then ihat bearing-down feeling is dreadfully wearing. Her husband says, " Now, don't get the blues ! You will be all right after you have taken the doctor's medicine." But she does not get all right. She grows worse day by day, until all at once she realizes that a distressing female complaint is established. Her doctor has made a mistake. She loses faith ; hope vanishes : then comes the morbid, melancholy, everlasting blues. She should have been told just what the trouble was, but probably 6he withheld some information from the doctor, who, therefore, is unablo to accurately locate her particular illness. Mrs. Pinkham has relieved thousands of women from just this kind of trouble, and now retains their grateful letters in her library as proof of the great assistance ehe has rendered them. This same assistance awaits every sick woman in the land. liSIS REWARD depoite3 whh whirh will be testimonial is writer a special fell! jifij'iinii Vv - Sunflower Tablets Is a ve?etable rniffly. and the surft, nfst, and ba malaria medicine In the world.
