After careful consideration the owners of this store have decided to close out this business and invest in other lines of business in which they are already interested. -This means a saving to
the people oi lopeka and vicinity of thousands of dollars right in the season when all need the very kinds of goods this store carries. 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 '

BOXING WAS TAME.
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
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
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.

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

with he hunts up the dog's owner and

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

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
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,
had always refused to sell.

'what kind of food," its effect upon the
system, and whether it , will be of-use
in building up the tissues of the body.
Your stomach wiii revolt, if It is not
already doing so. It must shut up for
repairs. What of the dizziness, and
sometimes pain, which stop you after
a hurried lunch? What of the gener
al distress after a heavy dinner, a feel
ing of pressure against the heart which
calls a halt and makes the breathing
difficult.' is it common for you to be
oppressed with belching and sour eruc
tations? 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
