Mrs. William tiusnara ana cniiaren arrived Thursday evening from De catur, 111., and are the guests of Mrs. I I In 111 -the World, JMo Other Place Lie This. It affords, us supreme satisfaction to be able to extend an invitation to you to call and inspect our new retail store the prettiest of the kind in the world. This is not a "crockery" store, nor is it in any way like anything else west of New York City, being a strictly modern and up-to-date display of Fine French, German, English, Japanese and American China ; Cut Glass; Art Pottery; Art Statuary; Royal Moriage, Henri Deux, and Wedgewood Ware; Rudolstadt and Bohemian Vases; Jardinieres; Lamps; Smyrna Rugs; Lace Curtains; Genuine Mexican Hand-Drawn Linens; Imported Silk-Dressed Dolls; Ormula Gold Clocks; Triplicate Mirrors; Chafing Dlshes and Brass Kettles; everything in Table Silverware known to the trade, including all articles of the well-known "1847" Rogers Bros. Brand and all kindred goods all shown in our beautiful store, especially arranged for this purpose. The idea is a new one in the West, although in New York and Boston fine display stores of this character are now quite the rage, inasmuch as the purpose is not to solicit everybody's patronage, but to appeal to the best, and endeavor to supply the wants of that class. This does not mean that goods bought here will cost any more than the same goods would if bought elsewhere, but, on the contrary, much less, and the reason for this is readily apparent : For the past five years, our Kansas City store has been devoted almost exclusively to the wholesale trade and the supplying of our forty-three branch retail stores. Last year our business amounted to nearly one million dollars, and this year will exceed that sum. You will readily un derstand, therefore, that, buying goods in such immense quantities, and, in every case from first hands, we are able to secure the very lowest prices, and, as we sell all goods on a close margin of profit, the price to you is cor respondingly low. In other words we "co-operate" with you, and have been often honored by the expression from many that there is "In all the world, no other place like this." It would scarcely be possible to give you much of an idea of our prices .here, as the variety is so great, and, you know, a little more or a little less gold on a piece of French China makes quite a difference in price, a little extra cutting on a piece of glass or a little more intricate design on a piece of Hand-Drawn Linen also , makes quite a difference in price; but, as a sample of our prices, we beg t6 quote you on an article that everybody is familiar with, namely, "1847" Rogers Bros. Knives and Forks, which we sell regularly, the year round, at S3.25 per dozen. All our prices are in proportion. In conclusion, permit us to say that we believe Topeka has long needed just such a place as this, and we earnestly desire the honor of an early call from you, and assure you of a most courteous reception. Please do not wait until you want to buy something come anyway, as we are proud of our efforts in fitting up this beautiful store a veritable "fairy land," and wish you to see it. Sincerely yours, JOHN C. HUMES CO., R24. TTnTisns Atohm. PROPRIETORS. Gushard's sister, Mrs. D. G. Kline, at 411 Clay street.

President McKinley's assassin was cheered publicly In Chi cago last night. A challenge from the platform that anarchists dared not con done the crime at Buffalo was met with a vigorous "You're a liar." Ibram Isaak, the recognized leader of the "Reds" in this city, and editor of Free Society, declared openly he could not condemn the assassin's act. He said that as to personal merit he took a second place to Czolgosz. The confession of Isaak was accom panied by a scene of intense excite ment. It was the climax of the debate on "Socialism or Anarchy," and came when the audience of over 1.000 had been aroused thoroughly by wild ora torical denunciations. "Hurrah for Czolgosz!" shouted a man In the gallery, swinging his hat above his head. Hisses, jeers, yells of approval and cat calls came from all parts of the house. The crowd rose to its feet and a riot was only averted by the prompt action of the chairman. Indeterminate Sentence. Tw York, Dec. 6.
