THE TOPEKA. DAILY STATE JOURNALS-THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE 27, 1907.
Vf f Fifty-one public-spirited firms of this city appreciating that the critical moment in the Washburn Campaign has come, and that two days more will decide whether Topeka is to forfeit $285,000, or whether she is to ensure a "Greater Washburn," have stepped forth as one man to meet and master this crisis. Will an equally interested Public appreciate this generosity of our merchants, which gives every buyer an opportunity to aid in the campaign without additional cost? For this helpful day, Friday, June 28th, the Washburn Campaign Committee will have as allies the profits from many millions of dollars invested in our great stores, and the personal service of more than a thousand zealous workers, each clerk vieing with the other, by their sales, to make " Washburn Day " a success. For this day Topeka trade at these fifty stores becames a true philantrophy, and " profits " a real giving. A CIisihcc for the Small Giver A great army of interested citizens have wanted to give to the Washburn Fund, but hesitated to send in such modest amounts as 25 cents, $1, etc. These fifty firms not only make such small donations possible to every man or woman in Topeka, but they make it without cost to their every patron. Let a loyal Public show by liberal buying their appreciation of this generosity. Whatever you buy tomorrow, buy it from one of the following houses. You will not pay one cent more for your goods; in fact, many merchants are advertising Special Bargains for "Washburn Day."

Walter Camp of Yale athletic fame, who has Just re turned from abroad, saw while In Eng land a game of baseball between the Rhodes' scholars at Oxford and a team nicked from association football play- eis of England. The game was the most amusing he ever saw. It began at 2 p. m. and at 7 o'clock three in nings had been played and the score was 52 to 38 in favor of the Rhodes men. The higher the score rose the greater the enthusiasm of the specta tors. "I left at the end of the third in ning," Mr. Camp said. "They may be playing yet." At the Air Dome. The Gilmore Players appeared be fore a large audience at the Air Dome last night. The play was the three act farce. "A Matrimonial Muddle." The audience was kept in an uproar by the funny situations and clever worn of the players. The Gilmore company is the strongest and most evenly oai- anced one that has so far appeared at the Air Dome this season, uney give a pleasing performance and the spe- J cialties introduced are or. me oeucr class. The moving pictures were also well received. Tonight the four act comedy-drama. "A Noble Sacrifice " will be presented. Leaves and Men. You know the fine picture in Homer, of the dead leaves which fall to make a place for the young buds. It Is as true of men as of trees. We have our time and pass away.
