Prices will be made on everything to close out in short order, as it s their intention to quit Topeka not later than January the first. This, of course, means a great sacrifice of merchandise, but time in this case is the great consideration. The goods, as all know, handled by this firm (although not the highest m price) are entirely reliable, as trash or shoddy goods have never been handled here. Extra salespeople have been secured, and every possible way considered to give all the very best attention possible. . ' ' Remember, this is a big stock of goods two full floors of reserve stock and three floors for forward stock to be disposed of. This will, of course, be a rush sale from start to finish, so come with the intention ot helping us as well as yourselves close out this stock. .,' i ' PES on Twenty per cent discount on everything saved. much greater reduction than this, but we mention this that you are sure to save this no matter what you bin.

CENT the smallest discount anything in the entire stocl short session at the state house last night. After all there was something to be thankful yesterday. There was no parade of the victors. The claims and accounts committee of the council meets this a.fternoon at the committee room at the city hall to go over the month's accounts. They sell rabbits down at El Dorado at 50 cents a dozen. Here they are disposed of two for fifteen cents. It costs more to live far from nature. The Rev. Mr. Madden, of Cumberland Presbyterian church, will give a series of illustrated lectures on Bungan'a Pil grim's Progress, beginning Sunday night. Notwithstanding' Hte ; Tact Uhat; Tain fell almost continuously for twelve hours yesterday, the precipitation amounted to but 32 one hundredths of an inch. There ought to be a big reduction in chrysanthemums today, judging from the stock that was laid by for the Thanksgiving football game which was not played. Though the sun was not shining this morning, daylight was more welcome than usual as in many instances it put an end to a night of romping night mares and bad dreams. Thirty fires thus far this month have been registered at the fire de partment headquarters. The greatest number for preceding months was that of September when there were 28. The twenty-ninth annual Sunday school convention of Soldier township will be held at Rochester school house, north of the reform school, the first and second days of December. A course of lectures Is being plan ned by the faculty of Washburn col lege with a view of raising funds to construct a gate way and in other ways beautify the college campus. The two members of the committee sent down to Texas to investigate the commission form of government re turned before they had expected to. They arrived last evening. Rev. Charles M. Sheldon has been granted a leave of absence of three months by the members of his church and expects to spend the time in par ticipating in a temperance campaign In England. The sale of reserved seats for the Elk performance opened with a rush this morning and the indications are that there will be "standing room only" signs displayed at the Grand Monday and Tuesday evenings. The colored department of the Y. M. C. A. expect to end their campaign this evening, which they started for the purpose of raising $1,000 with which to equip their gymnasium with entire amount subscribed. St. Mary's and Ottawa have each agreed to send their football teams to Topeka Saturday to play off the game which was scheduled for yesterday and had to be postponed because the play ers were not equipped with waders. The weather department played a rather serious Joke on Thanksgiving day when it sent rain and deprived football enthusiasts of the city of an opportunity to see the St. Mary'3-Ot-tawa football game which was sched uled for athletic park. The cessions of the United States circuit court will commence this morning after closing for Thanks giving. Most of the cases to be tried now are of a civil nature. The court will probably remain in session here until the latter ;art of next week. Thirty-three tickets were disposed of yesterday for the proposed season course of musical numbers for the pipe organ fund, which added to the Thanksgiving feature of the day as far as the committee having the matter in charge is concerned. "In the future I shall keep my hands off of everything that is not pulled off under cover," remarked Herman Crow, who had charge of the arrangements for the football game yesterday, "for I never tried to make a go of anything in the open that it did not rain or snow." A paving campaign has been started in North Topeka, and if only half of the petitions now being circulated in that portion of the city are approved by the city council, work will be com menced on a number of blocks cf pav ing as soon as the spring weather con ditions will permit.

Dunleavy and Cornwall Determined Not to Hurt Each Other. The formal opening of the local box ing season In Topeka at Metropolitan hall last night was characterized by an Alphonse-Gaston bout of slapping on the wrist between Jack Dunleavy of Boston and Billy Cornwall of St. Louis in what wasto be a nf teenrround go for a deci sion but later cut down to ten rounds with an agreement that it both parties to the slapping; were on. their feet at the conclusion of the -tenth the beut- would be declared a. draw." Bothy stayed and acted the limit. - It didn't take cjiy sleight of hand performer to tell , that neither of the two principals were going to risk getting hurt, even though- Corn wall succeeded in whipping Dunleavy' nose smartly enough to start the crim son flowing. This Has the only dread ful casualty of the ten rounds the rest was only massage. ' Oiic? or twice thsy so far forgot themselves as to act rude ly and really punch, but in the main It was a Sunday school performance with "Johnnie you mustn't hit Willie." Two hundred really true blue sports who followed up the narrow winding stairs to the hall had been keyed up to the highest expectancy by the previous announcements that the two men had met four times, each resulting in a draw, that considerable fueling existed between the two and that it was going to be a royal fight to a finish for a de cision. There was no betting to speak of and no odds were placed both went into the ring ort an equal basis with the crowd. Cornwall had a little the best of it in reach and height; it was a matter of tossup on weight. Straight Marquis of Queensberry rules governed, permitting hitting in clinches and on the breakaway. The first round consisted of running about the ring and Jabbing softly on the guards or swinging hits delivered at the air. Frequent clinches inter larded this performance and the crowd began to get boisterous and call for some real fighting. Catcalls and sar castic comments on the play fighting were fired at the two boxers from the crowd. The second round was a good sam ple of the first and there was little ex citement during me rest. TUe tenth round was an even break though Cornwall seemed to be the ticnger of the two and landed several effectual blows on head and wind. Most cf the round was spent in clinching and shoving each other around. Spencer Arthur Abbott, referee, ac cording to agreement called the bout a draw, though Cornwall had the best of the crcounter. Teddy Williams, the col ored lightweight of Topeka challenged both men with a side bet of $100. W ill iams weighs about 130 and both Dun-, leavy and Cornwall weigh in at about The most interesting go of the even ing was that between Teddy Williams and Brigham Young of Joplin for six, rounds. Williams was given the decis- , ion but no decision snuuiu nave rem handed out. Williams had all of the best of the first three rounds but Young grew stronger towards the finish and had the Topeka lad in a bad corner. Young is clever, has good footwork and dodged in approved style several swings which looked sure. He had the best end of the weight and was larger. Len Williams, a brother of Teddy, and Ed Payne went four rounds to a draw. Preceding them was the most laughable affair of the evening be tween two colored boys weighing In at about 100 rounds. Arthur Jones and Bob Kennedy caught several rounds of applause bv the hammer and tongs style of fighting. Not much science but plenty of fighting. He Was Just In Time. New York, Nov: 30.

T-pHERE is a Reason Why the Good People of Amer ica buy Cascarets as Fast as the Clock Ticks. Every second some one, somewhere, is Buying a little Ten-Cent Box of Cascarets. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 660 times to the Minute, 60 Minutes to the Hour, 3600 Boxes an an Hour, 36,000 Boxes a Day of Ten Hours, 1,080,000 Boxes a Month, and then some. Think of it 220,000 People take a Cas caret tablet each day. Millions use Cas carets when necessary. The Judgment of Millions of Bright Americans is Infallible. They have been Buying and Taking Cascarets at that rate for over Six years. Over Five Millions of Dollars have been Spent to make the merits of Cascarets known, and every cent of it would be lost, did not 'sound merit claim and hold the constant, continued friendship, Patronage and Endorsement of well-pleased people year after year. There Is also a Reason Whv there are Parasites who attach themselves to the Healthy Body of Cascar et's success Imitators, Counterfeiters, Sub stitulors. They are Trade Thieves who 'would rob Cascarets of the "Good Will" of the people, and sneak unearned profits, earned and paid for by Cascarets. A Dishonest Purpose means a Dishonest Product and a Disregard of the Purchasers' Health or Welfare. Beware of the Slick Salesman and his ancient "Just as Good" story that common sense refutes. Cascarets are made only by the Sterling Remedy Company, and put up In metal box 1 with the "long-tailed C on the cover. They are never sold In bulk. Every tablet marked "CCC."

DeMnth Will Start Xew Department Store In Washington. " The Topeka Cash department store is closed today, and all the clerks and sev eral extra assistants are busily engaged in getting ready for the opening tomor row morning of the closing out sale. It is the intention of A. Demuth, the man aeer. to close out" the entire stock at greatly reduced, prices berijre Februp.iy 1. at which time the firm will begin busi ness on a larger scale in a new stale. Mr. Demuth has purchased a general department store business in Bennins ham. Wash., and will open there in the spring. The Topeka Cash dry goods store has been in existence twelve years, and wus first opened on East Six?.i street. Mr. Demuth was repeatedly warned that a strictly cash business would be unsuc cessful in Topeka. but the rapid growth of the concern until it reached its pres-' ent magnitude, and it is now one of the lnrgest stores of any kind in the city, proved otherwise. Mr. Demuth said today: "We will not move any part of this stock to our new stand in Benningham, Wash. We are going to sell it right here at prices which will insure a clean sweep of the stock before February 1. When we open the doors tomorrow morning, the closing out sale will be on in dead earn est. All our goods are up to date, and it is not a house-cleaning of antiques and out-of-date goods we contemplate. "While traveling through the norm west, I located the big department store at Benningham, and decided that it was Just what we wanted. Twenty per cent is the smallest discount we make on anything for this sale. We are not closing out here because Topeka is a poor business town the growth of the store since it was established is a suffi cient alibi on that charge but because we think there is a still greater busi ness possibility in the new field we have selected." The change of business location not only loses for Topeka one of its largest department stores, but marks the pass ing, as far as the town is concerned, of "Tony" Demuth, a high Mason, a popu lar Elk and an all-round good fellow and citizen. When he closes out the business here, he will remove to Ben ningham and take charge of his recent purchase. Dog That Drums Up Passengers. A hotel and livery man in St. Charles, 111., makes use of a dog for an odd purpose. It is a peculiarly marked coach dog, named Spot, and supposed to be known by all of the traveling men in the country. When a drummer wants to go to an interior town the hoiel man drives for him and takes the dog along. When the town is reached Spot is allowed to roam the streets. Another' drummer who wants to make the town where the dog belongs knows him as soon as he sera yes or. him and correctly sur mises that the owner is in town with his rig a.n3 will be going back.- Forth with he hunts up the dog's owner and engages him for the ride back to the railroad town. In this way the hotel and livery man has a passenger each way and, of course, doubles his money. . Spot seems to know what Is wanted of him, and he goes nosing around a town as if he was hunting a customer for his master. Mr. Atwood, his 1 owner, says that he earns his board a good many times over by finding pas sengers for the return trips. Chicago Daily News. A Ulsh Story Sure Enough. Josiah C. Stryker, of Morristown, N. T h comrilained to the authorities that his twenty trained eels, which he kept in a spring near Lebanon, nave beep stolen. These eels, which were tyia wnnde of the countrvside. made home in a small streim running from the spring. It was their habit to en ter the spring each dayto be fed, out of Stryker s nana.- .. s Stryker noticed the eels In the sprinc, one day and has since spent- many hours in patiently coaxing them to eat worms out of his hand. Gradually the eels became so .tame that they per y 3 n GO g at Wl 1 mitted Stryker to take them out of the water and caress them. When Stryker rapped on a stone wall, which sur rounded the spring, the eels would glide rapidly from the stream and gather about him. The leader of the school, which was more than three feet long, had been trained by Stryker to grab a worm held several inches above the surface of the water. More than a thouusand per sons nave visited the spring to Stryker give an exhibition with eels, and he had been offered prices for them by museum men, see the big but had always refused to sell. It is believed that some one famil iar with Stryker's method of rapping for .the eels has called them out dur ing the night; But two oF;-tli?m rp main, and the saddened owner has of fered a liberal reward to any one who will bring the stolen ones back to their old home.

Costs Nothing to Relievo This Condition. Eating is fast becoming too much a part of the daily routine, if not a mere ticking of the appetite a thing to be gotten out of the' way as quickly as possible.

Are you constipated and then do you laughingly toss a dime to the druggist for his most palatable relief? Beware of temporary cures that are but palliatives. Many antidotes for the common Ills which our flesh is heir to seem at first to relieve, but In real ity, if not injecting poison into the sys tem, lay the foundation for a deeper- seated and more far-reaching disorder. 1 nree-rourtns of an diseases orig inate with a breaking-down of the di- gestion and nine-tenths of all digestive troubles originate with one or more of the symptoms named above.
