THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL. MONDAY NIGHT. GOMPAREJEAMS. Ann Arborites "SizeUp" Chicagty and Home Flayers. Wolverines Can See Nothing But Victory Thanksgiving. SAY STAGGSIS CLEYER. They Think Eckersall, Too, Is to Be Watched Closely. Overconfldence Is Feared by "Hurry Up Vost." Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 27. It's up to Michigan to make good the Wolver ines' claim to be the gridiron champion ship of the west. Fully realizing a!S the advantages and disadvantages in the situation, the Michigan rooter ex pects the team he believes is impregna ble and Irresistible to make good against Chicago next Tuesday afternoon on Marshall field. Coach Tost has laid stress all week on Chicago's advantages. He has endeav ored to get the ruaiza and blue rooters' to looking at the situation sanely, and as much as possible, without prejudice. He has succeeded in a greater measure than is apparent today. The real fear of Chicago will probably begin to mani fest Itself by the time the team puts oo its final coat of polish on Tuesday. Call Stagg Wily Coach. ATI Michigan firmly believes Stagg's eleven is the wily Alonzo's best. Fur ther, It is believed the strong maroons will have as many. If not more, than the usual number of tricks, ready to spring on the Wolverines. Any one here will concede that "wily," the adjective mos' often applied to Stagg, is just the proper word. Michigan is wining te say, too, that Eckcrsall is wonderfully fast, both in shifting himself over ground and in run ning his eleven. It is well known here that he never showed in as good form In accurate kicking as this fall. Bezdek is conceded to be an excellent plunging full back, and De Tray a pow erful half. Walker is given the credit of having shown as well as Hal Weeks or Clark so far this year. In the back fleld, Michigan agrees the Wolverine is fully equaled on paper at least. Cat lin and Parry are more experienced ends than Garrels and Harry Hammond. The entire Chicago line is believed to be strong, the impression prevailing that Stagg's guards are perhaps the most vulnerable units in his maroon wall. Garrels a First Year Wonder. On the other hand, Johnny Garrels, at left end. has proved himself a wonder for a first year man on the eleven. He is the team's punter. In the Wisconsin game the youngster even got a little the better of Bush, the Badger veteran, it w as seen when the yards were all credit ed. Harry Hammond, right end, the Junior member of "The Hammond beef trust." is a veteran, heavier than ever, nd well tried this year. All fall Michi gan has said, "if our ends can only stop Vm." Yet each game has shown the ends to be right there at all tinres. Chi cago ends, though, may get down under punts faster than (farrels and Ham mond. Wisconsin's ends did that. At one tackle is big Joe Curtis, great of bulk and great in football ability. Few are the tackles who can say they have held Curtis' plunges this year. He is playing his third year, and is bolter than ever, lthelnschlld, at tne othT tackle, seems to be striving to rival Curtis. The lanky Californian has come along through the season like a steam engine astray under full steam. He has not only been "the goods" on defense, but has been a wonderfully strong man on onense. Guards of Star Caliber. The jruards are Schulte and Graham the one a veteran of three years, the other nlavinir his second season. Both are big. hard, reliable, good players of the game. Both can carry tne nan. K-hnit. la -.iot in the best of condition. owing to injuries received in the Ohio State game. Nevertheless, he was able to gain eight yards through the stiff Badger line on the only chance he was given to carry tne leatner in tne Wis consin game. If Chicago's guards are To be Fair to Yourself to Learn by a Test what Liquozone Means to You. The First Bottle is Free. To you who are sick and are waiting this appeal is to you. An appeal to be fair to yourself. Don't think that the help which you need is impossible. Please, for a moment, lay your doubts aside. Send us this coupon and see the good it may bring you. Let us buy you a bottle of Liquozone to try. The test is free; and, if it succeeds, think what it means to you. And do you suppose we would make this offer if the results were not likely to be satisfactory? Note what this product has done. Two years ago, Liquozone was known to but few. Now more than 11,000,000 bottles have been used. Today there are countless cured ones scattered over half the world telling what they owe to Liquozone. We ask you to do what they did. Let this product itself prove its power. Please try it at our expense. What Liquozone Is. Liquozone is a tonic-germicide .the virtues of which are derived from gas alone. The formula is sent to each user. , , The process of making requires large apparatus, and from 8 to 14 days' time. It is directed by chemists f the highest class. The object is to so fix and combine the gases as to carry their virtues into the system. The gases employed are vitalizing, and the product which results is a tonio. The gases are germicidal, and the product they create is a harmless germicide. No alcohol, no opiates, no dangerous drugs are employed in it. Nothing whatever but helpful gases, and the water used to absorb them. The invention of Liquozone meant finding a way to utilize gases in the treatment of germ diseases. And mil lions know from experience something of what that discovery means to humanity. weak, Schulte and Graham will prob ably be the men to blaze the way in the Wolverine attack. "Germany" Schulte is looked upon as a reliable snapper of the ball, since he handled himself well in the encounter with Remp, Wisconsin's crack center. Captain Norcross, at quarterback, is a speedy passer of the ball, believed to be a field general without peer in the west as his work in the march for Michigan's touchdown in the Minne sota game of 1903 is claimed to show and a reliable man in the far field when on defense. All season he has handled well the punts sent to him. He has seemed to improve with the re sponsibilities of the captaincy on him. Only one thing has marred his work the several injuries that he has sus tained from the beginning of the year. If he has to leave the game he will bequeath the quarter's position to the ablest substitute on the eleven. Bar low. None to Fill Heston's Shoes. Longman, Hammond, and Weeks are all veterans. There is no one like "Stub" to back up the line on defense. or none like the big Hyde Parker to smash interference in attempts at end skirting. Either Weeks or Clark will prove good at left half, though not at all filling the great Heston's empty shoes. Weeks is the better defensive player; Clark has a shade on Hal in the offense. STANDS BY FOOTBALL. President Eliot of Harvard Has No Idea of Its Abolition. Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 2 7. Presi dent Eliot of Harvard stated last night that he would not call a meeting ot university and college presidents to undertake the reform or abolition of football. A request that he call such a meeting was received by President Eliot in a telegram from t hanceilor MacCracken of New Tork university. after the death of Harold P. Moore of the union college football team. ' I have, not replied to Chancellor MaeCracken's telegram," said Presi dent Eliot. "I expect to write him a letter soon. I shall decline to take the action re quested. I can not see why such action should come from , me. it should come from the board of over seers of the corporation." When asked whether he thought such a movement was contemplated, President Eliot said: "I know absolutely nothing about it. Mr. Storey, an overseer of Harvard, accordmer to the newspapers, is think ing of introducing a motion to abolish the game. However, he denied to me that he had any such intentions. He denied it to the newspapers, too, but they published it nevertheless." WASHINGTON PLAYER GONE. Shortstop Cassidy Missing and Friends Fear Foul Play. Chester, Pa., Nov. 27. The aged mother and friends of Joseph Cassidy, the Washington American league base ball player, are greatly worried over lengthy absence from home. The last heard from him was about the time Washington and the Athletics were playing the final game in Washington. He then wrote home stating that he contemplated going on a short trip with some friends. Since then nothing has been heard from him, although friends have been making inquiries concerning his where abouts. As he generally carried a sum of money on his person it is feared that he may have met with foul play. His mother is seriously ill, the result of worrying over his absence. Nothing was thought of his absence during the first two weeks, as it was believed he was simply enjoying a brief tour of the country before returnine- home, but as week after week passed and nothing was heard from him his relatives and friends became alarmed and began to make inquiries which proved o no avail. WOODSON HEARD FROM. Colt Which Ran Serond to Highball in 1904 Derby May Race Again. Lexington, Ky., Nov. 27. Luther Dick erson, the Jessamine county trainer, has in winter quarters now at Nlcholasville the nucleus of a racing stable which he hopes to campaign next season. It is headed by the 5-year-old Woodson, the son of imp. St. George, which ran second to Highball in the American derby of 1904. After that race Woodson stepped on one of his quarters in his work and Dick erson ' retired him for the season. This year his owner fitted him for June and July racing and engaged him in a num ber ot valuable stakes at Chicago, but. these stakes being declared off. left the noted 4-year-old at the mercy of the handieappers. so Dickerson sent the son of St. George to the farm. His trainer now believes he will be one of the great horses of the turf in 1906. An Appeal Kills Disease Germs. The main value of Liquozone lies in the fact that it is deadly to germs, yet harmless to living tissues. That is not true of common germi cides. They are poisons when taken internally. That is whv medicine has proved so helpless itl dealing with germ diseases. The usual germ-killing drugs can not be taken in effective doses internally. Liquozone is harmless. That fact has been repeatedly proved by scien tific tests. Not only harmless: it is good for you. Its effects are exonerat ing, vitalizing and purifying. Its bene fit is often apparent from the very first dose. Yet contact with Liquozone de stroys every form of disease germ that has yet been discovered. Can you not sec why this product may do what other remedies fail to accomplish ? He is as sound as a bell and looks rug ged and hearty. Dickerson will go slow with him and make an eastern invasion during the Saratoga meeting. BADGERS TO LOSE SIX. Coach King Will Have to Fill Several Gaps. Madison. Wis., Nov. 27. Six of Wiscon sin's star football men went out of com mission this fall. Remp, Bertke, Bush. Vanderboom, Findlay and Donovan have played their four years. Brindley is a senior and is uncertain about returning. This makes at least six positions that Kingr for it is almost ' certain King will return will have to fill. The recruits will come from the freshman team, from the second varsity, and from a few men of football caliber who intend to enter the university next semester. Steel, the fresh man oenTcr, has a good chance of taking Kemp's place. Dalton, fullback on the freshman team, will be in the race for halfback; Messmeer will try for tackle, and "Pug" Wright is second to no man in college at quarterback. Johnson. Bley er and Schwaim will be in line for Bertke's and Donovan's places, and "Cody" Clarke looks good for the other halfback. Melzner. Deering and Brindley are the three men mentioned for captain next year. TALK STAY-AT HOMES JOYFFL. Celebrate the Victory at New Haven Dancing Around Big Bonfire. New Haven, Conn., Nov. 27. Owing to the fact that a large majority of the Yale students had gone to Cambridge for the Yale-Harvard football game, the celebra tion at night was not so large as it would otherwise have been, but what it lacked in volume it made up in enthusiasm. So clr.se was the game throughout the afternoon and so stubbornly fought that when the news of Yale's victory reached New Haven and the long strain was bro ken the joy of the Yale men knew no bounds. All night long the campus resounded with cheers, and around a big bonfire blazing in the college yard the Yale men danced and sang, in the exuberance of their joy. The special train bringing back Yale s rejoicing hordes reached hero about midnight and added more fuel to the celebration. SOUTHERN LEAGUE'S WORK. Adopted Measures to Keep Down the Salary Limit. Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 27. Drastic measures were taken at the annual meeting of the Southern League for en forcement of a $2,700 salary limit, which was adopted after spirited debate by a vote of 6 to 2. President Kavanaugh and all old officers who were re-elected have provided for forfeiture of fran chise from any club found violating the new act, which, in addition to confining the maximum monthly pay roll to $2. 700, limits clubs to 14 players after May 1 of each season. It was agreed to open the next South ern League season on April 11. Mana ger Finn has agreed on terms to man age Nashville. Charley Babb. former Brooklyn (New York) player, will man age Memphis. Robert Gilks, of Toledo, also signed new contract to take charge of Shreveport. BR ITT AND NELSON'S ACT. Boxers Will Perform in Cleveland Next Week. Cleveland, O., Nov. 27. Jimmy Britt and Battling Nelson will give sparring exhibitions at two different burlesque theaters here next week, and it is pos sible that they may be matched for another fight. Billy Nolan came from Pittsburg, and said that as soon as Britt pays him the $5,000 he owes him from the last fight he will talk busi ness. Nolan says he will agree to a match in private or will match Robert Lundie. Nelson's sparring partner, against Britt. He would like to have Nelson and Britt meet for a. side bet of $10,000, hte winner to tales all. A GREAT BIG SURPRISE. Was the Victory of Sullivan Over Gardner. San Francisco, Nov. 27. The result of the fight was a terrible jolt for the San Francisco sports, who insist on betting on sentiment. There was no reason for making Jimmy Gardner a 2 to 1 favor ite over Mike (Twin) Sullivan. The lo cal fight fans argued that Sullivan had not gone the 20-round pace for a long time, and that Jimmy's youth and su perior strength would wear out the bald-headed boxer. This Waterloo for the local sports follows heavily on the losses on the Britt-Nelson and the Kaufmann-O'Brien fights, in which the local fans backed Britt and Kaufmann. The gross receipts were $5,960, ot which Sullivan received $2.2.13 and Gardner $i45. Besides has share, Sulli van won a $1,000 side bet. Coursing at Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City, O. T., Nov. 27. The second event given by the Oklahoma Germ Diseases. In the past few years, scores of dis eases have been traced 10 germ at tacks. These include most of our minor ills, and most of our serious sickness. A few years ago, all these diseases were attributed to other causes. The remedies made for them were based on theories which have since been abandoned. Is it any wonder that those old time remedies so often prove ineffective ? Germ diseases call .for Liquozone. In any such disease no, matter how diffi cult we send to each user a guar antee, permitting two months' treat ment at our financial risk. If the re sults are unsatisfactory, the patient's own druggist returns every penny paid. "VVe do this so that none who need this help may find reason to go without it. We have sent out many thousands of these guarantees, yet less than five in each thousand have been returned for redemption. Can you not see that a remedy so wonderfully effective in general is likely to be effective with you ? Where It Applies. These are the diseases in which Liquozone has been most widely em ployed. In these diseases, more than any others, it has earned its wide reputation. Not all of these are known germ diseases. Authorities differ on some of them. But, according to our experience, these are the diseases to which Liquozone best applies. In each of these diseases we supply the first bottle free. And in all no I matter how difficult we offer each j user a two months' further test with out the risk of a penny. !

In a let ter to the Syracuse public library board congratulating the city upon the completion of its new $200,000 library building Andrew Carnegie, the donor, takes occasion to criticise the com mission that erected the building for the expenditure of $18,000 and nearly 10 per cent of the cost of the build ing for inspectors' fees, attorneys' fees and architects. Mr. Carnegie says he never heard of such a thing as attor neys' fees in connection with the build ing of his libraries and intimates that there has been a waste of funds. DIRECT WIRE TO CHICAGO. Telephone Lines Are Being Strung as Fast as Possible. Kansas City. Nov. 27. -Kansas Citv is to have direct telephonic connection with Chicago. The American Tele phone and Telegraph company has 150 workmen, in two gangs, stringing the line between the two cities. One force is working from this end, the other from Chicago. The American company is allied with the Bell inter ests, and will reach Kansas City through connection with the Missouri and Kansas corhpany. When completed there will be three full copper wire circuits between the two cities. Heretofore It has been necessary to go by way of St. Louis or Omaha in order to get to Chicago. The line is to be completed by February 1, and is to go by way of Fort Madison ana Burlington, la. The Coming Country.

BEATS THE WORLD Wealth Produced on Farms of the United States In 1905 Reached a Value of $6,415,000,000. NEW HIGH RECORDS. Made hy Corn, Hay, Wheat and Rice Crops. Farm Values Growing at Rate of $3,400,000 a Day. Washington. Nov. 27. "Wealth pro duced on the farms of the United States in 1905 reached the highest amount ever attained in this or any other country $6,415,000,000." In the first anrjual report of his thir term, Secretary of Agriculture Wilson presents an array of figures and statements representing the prod ucts and profits of the farmers of the country, which he admits "dreams of wealth production could hardly equal." Four crops make new high records as to value corn, hay, wheat and rice although in amount of production the corn crop is the only one that ex ceeds previous yields. In every crop the general level of production was high, and that of prices still higher. Beside the enormous yield of wealth, the secretary estimates that the farms of the country .have in creased in value during the past five years to a present aggregate of $6, 133.000,000. "Every sunset during the past five years," he says, "has registered an in crease of $2,400,000 in the value of the farms of this country." This increased value, the secretary suggests, is in vested better than in bank deposits or even in the gilt edged bonds of private corporations. In dealing with the crop report "leak," Secretary Wilson, after re ferring to the "gross breach of trust on the part of one of the employes of the bureau of statistics," says: "This department acted with vigor and dispatch' -when it got evidence of w rongdoing on the part of its own of ficials, but we have no evidence of dis ciplinary or preventive action at the traders' end of the line, where gam blers interested neither in the produc tion nor consumption disturb values to the injury of both, and make loud outcry when creatures of their own kind corrupt officials to betray con fidence for the love of money. The re sponsibility for this 'leak' is shared by everyone who, to get money without work, gambles in farm products. When this form of industry ceases these parasites who tempt department officials will have to work for their bread." Horses Increase in Spite of Auto. The method of handling crop reports, he says, has been thoroughly recast dur ing the year. There has also been a de cided ehanse in the methods of work prescribed for field agents. Each agent Is now confined to a definite group of states, with which he becomes familiar by travel each month. Analyzing the principal crops for the year, the secretary says that corn reached its highest production with 2.708.000.000 bushels, a gain of 42,000.000 over the next lowest year, 1899; hay is second in order of value, though cot ton held second place during the two preceding years. The hay crop this year is valued at $605,000,000. Cotton comes third, with a valuation of $375,000,000; wheat, $525,000,000; oats. $282,000,000; po tatoes. $138,000,000; barley, $58,000,000; to bacco, $52,000,000; sugar cane and sugar beets. $50,000,000; rice, $13,892,000; dairy products. $665,000,000, an increase of $54. 000.000 over last year. "The farmer's hen," the secretary says, "is becoming a worthy companion to his cow. The annual production of eggs is now a score "of billions. Poultry products have climbed to a place of more than half a billion dollars in value, srt fhe farmer's hen competes with wheat for precedence." There are more horses and with a larger aggregate value than ever before, notwithstanding, as the secretary says, they were first threatened by the bicycle and later by the suburban trolley and the automobile. He estimates their value at $1,200,000,000, or nearly as much as the corn crop, and the value of mules, $252,000,000 More .Milch Cows. Fewer Sheep. Although milch cows are Increasing in number and value, the report states that other cattle and sheep have for several years been decreasing. There are 17. 750.000 milch cows, valued at $482,000,000. Other cattle are numbered at 43.669,000, with a value of $662,000,000. Swine num ber 47.321.000, valued at $283,255,000. In the aggregate the value of farm animals has increased a few million dollars with in the year, and since the census of 1900 have increased 9 per cent. With this enormous production the secretary says the wants of 83.000.000 people have been supplied with a re maining surplus constituting a gener ous contribution to other nations. The exported farm products during the fis cal year ending June 30. 1905, had a value of $827,000,000. which was less by $51,000,000 than 'the average exports for the five preceding years. In accounting for this the secretary says owing to the short wheat crop there was a de crease in the export of that cereal amounting to $41,000,000. of $5.000 000 in the exports of packing: house products, and another $5,000,000 in fruits and oth er minor items. The increase included $!! 350 000 in cotton. $4,700,000 in oil cake and oil cake meal. $4,000,000 in vegeta ble oils and $2,000,000 in rice and vari ous minor products. "During the last 16 years." the sec retary says, "the domestic exports of farm products have amounted to $12. 000.000.000, or $1,000,000,000 more than enough to buy all the railroads of the country at their commefeial value, and this with a mere surplus for which there was no demand at home." Secretary Wilson tiolnts out that the farmer is taking an important part in developing the manufacturing interests of the country by furnishing raw ma terial, and that he has also become u banker. The farm contributions in manufactories during the years were $:;,679,0O0,00O. Under the recent amend ment to the national banking act al lowing the establishment of banks with a capitalization of less than $50,000, there have been 1,754 such banks estab lished in the last year, nearly every one of which is located in a rural com munity and the capital furnished by farmery. Speaking of the increase in deposits in banks by farmers, the sec retary states: South Central states' Growth. "In the North Central states farmers have been depositing money in the banks until the rate of interest on de posits has fallen so low that they have diverted a large portion of their savings to uprtimnunt Inrpatmonlc Tn oriite off the fact that the banks do not receive and keep all or most of the farmers savings, the increase of bank deposits in agricultural states and larger reg ions is most extraordinary. In Iowa and South Dakota the increase was 14.9 per cent; Nebraska, 13.5; Kansas, 9.7; North Dakota, 25. "Still more remarkable is the bank statement for the South central states. Deposits increased 18.1 per cent in Tex as, 21.4 in Oklahoma, 24.1 in Arkansas, and 45.7 in Indian Territory, while throughout that geographic division the increase was 22.3 per cent. The general average increase for the United States was 13.5 per cent. "For the first time in the financial his torv of the south deposits in the banks of that region now exceed $1,000,000,000. "The foregoing remarkable Increase In bank deposits in agricultural states, as well as the increase in the number of small country banks, are directly and in directly because of the profits that have come to the farmers from the operation of their farms. The man with the hoe has become the man with the harvester, and the depositor and shareholder of the oank. Gain in Farm Values. Analyzing the increase of the value of rarms, air. wuson says: "Figured in dollars of gain per acre, the increase during the five years past of medium farms were in the north central division. $11.25: In the western division $5.36: in the north Atlantic, $5.26; in the south Atlantic division. $4.93, and in the south central division, $4.66. The average increase for the United States was BIA The returns showed that farms of less In tensive culture and crops have increased in value less than the farms having more valuable crops and receiving high cul ture. Farmers are improving their cultu ral methods and changing from less to more profitable crops. Other causes for higher values are better buildings, better fences, tile draining, new facilities for transportation, more railroads and bet ter wagon roads. "The cotton fads have Increased in value $460,000,000, so that it might be said that during the past five years the cotton planters have six crops, one of them a permanent Investment promising to pay a good return year by year. Hay and grain rarms show an increase or (2,000, 000,000; live stock farms a still larger gain: farms $369,000,000; tobacco farms $57. 000,000; rice farms $3,300,000; fruit farms $97,000,000, and vegetable farms $113,000,000." The report concludes: "Should there be no relapse from Ills present position as a wealth producer, three years hence the farmer will find that the farming element, about .15 per cent of the population, has produced an amount of wealth within ten years equal to one-half of the entire national wealth produced in three centuries. "Great as has been the work underta ken and accomplished by this department, gratifying: as have been the results, be ft remembered that we are still at the threshold of agricultural development, and that the educational work that has led to such good results has only been extended as yet to a portion of our ag ricultural population. There Is not an intelligent, patriotic citizen in the union who will not say with his whole heart: 'Let the good work go on.

He says if he waits until June, when the boats will commence running, he will get there too late to do any Gold Is Obtained. Regarding the manner of thawing the ground to get out the gold he said: "It was formerly the custom to thaw the ground by burning wood fires, and this was all right when miners first went in because there was much wood along the streams, but now it is all used up and costs about $16 a cord. We use steam for thawing the ground now as we cannot get coal. The boiler is connected to a long, hollow steel drill with a diamond point.

But I must confess for the benefit of humanity, that there has recently appeared a remedy more wonderful in its action than all others. It not only cures every case if proper ly applied and taken in time, but it will actually prevent the spreading of this loathsome disease. This is Prof. G. G. Robinson's Golden Chemical Compound, so well advertised throughout our city and state. This is the nrst time 1 ever al lowed my name to be used in public print advocating any remedy, and onlv do so now for the benefit of mothers and their little sufferers. This is the safest and" surest preparation I have even tried. And the only mystery to me is that all pnysicians do not adopt its use at once. I can refer to many other physicians throughout the state who have used this remedy sucessfullv. There are others in Topeka who know , of its merits and will endorse what I say. 1 nave used it to my own satis faction and am ready to say that the Golden chemical Compound will actually prevent or cure diphtheria And I am now ready to treat all cases of diphtheria by the new method and no fear need be felt if 1 am called in lime.

The New Gold Country. "Tanana, on the American side, is the coming gold country. There are thousands of miles of land where not a. shovel full of dirt has been turned. About $4,000,000 were taken out of there during the last year. "February 14 with the thermometer 63 degrees below zero several of us started for this country. We traveled thirty three days. We took along 800 pounds of provisions for every two men. but when we got there were nearly out. A fellow who had taken 175 tons of stuff there during the summer, such stuff as could not be sold in Dawson, charged us $1 a pound for everything we needed, chains and ropes included. Fairbanks, a town of about 6,000, is the largest in this district. It is a better country thau that in which I am located." Work by Moon's Light. "How can you work in the wintertime, with no sun?" was asked. "We have a moon throughout the days when there is no sun. The moon shines almost as brightly as does the sun here at 3 o'clock in the afternoons. But not every day. We get accustomed to the long days when the su shines foT about six months and can easily tell when it is time to go to bed. We get used to it.
