THE TOPEKA DAILY STATE JOURNAL TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 9, 1907. Try them and you will for dinner. The most nutritious staple made from wheat. In moisture and dust proof packages. NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY 3 5NAP SHOTSI At the meeting of the city council last night 20 petitions for better side walks were granted by the city fath ers. Bids will be called for in a short time for the erection of a $1,500 ad dition to the city building for the use of the water department. Davis, Welcome & Co. were yester day granted a permit for the erection of a modern residence at 1119 Western avenue which is to cost $3,500. An excursion will be- run from Em poria to Topeka Sunday at the dollar for the round trip rate for the ball game between Wichita and Topeka. There are several clothing stores in Topeka on Kansas avenue north of Sixth street that keep open Sunday forenoons. Chief Eaton hasn't found them. William Taylor is touring north western Kansas in his automobile, following the trail of a number of customers which leads to that part of the state. Yesterday was the hottest day of the reason, but that does not do away with the fact that there will be other "hot test" days before the summer is over, and plenty of them. One of the unusual sights seen on West Sixth avenue last evening from the street car window was an elderly woman watering a full grown lawn with a sprinkling pot. In the future, that is while the sum mer season lasts the prisoners in the city jail will cut weeds instead of cracking rock, under the direction of a sanitary policeman. The weather of the past few days has been of the real Chautauqua va riety and the assembly will not open at Garfield park until Monday the 15th of the present month. This afternoon is ladies day at the ball game and the fair fans will go out to the park to witness the final at tempt of the White Sox to defeat Jay Andrews' Hutchinson team.

Completely Cured : BY THREE BOXES OF CUTICURA OINTMENT "When I lru about nine years old mall sores appeared on each of my lower limbs. I scratched them with a brass pin ana shortly afterwards both of those limbs became so sore that I could scarcely walk. When I had been suffering for about a month the sores began to heal. but small scaly eruptions appeared where the sores had been. From that time onward I was troubled by such severe itching that, until I became accustomed to it, I would scratch the sores until the blood began to flow. This would stop the itching for a few days; but scaly places would appear again and the itching would accompany them. After I suffered about ten years I made a renewed effort to effect a cure. The eruptions by this time had appeared on every part of my body except my face ana hands. The best doctor in my native county advised me to use arsenic In small doses and a salve. I then used to bathe the sores in a mixture which f ave almost intolerable pain. In addi ion I used other remedies, such as iodine. sulphur, zinc salve, 's Salve, Ointment, and in fact I was con tinually giving some remedy a fair trial, never using less than one or two boxes or " bottles. All this was fruitless. Finally cay hair began to fall out and I was rapidly becoming bald. I used 's , but it did no good. A few months after, having used almost everything else, I thought I would try Cuticura Ointment, having previously used Cuticura Soap and being pleased with it. After vsing three boxes I was completely cured, and my hair was restored, after fourteen years of suffering and an expenditure of at least $50 to $60 in vainly endeavoring to find a cure. I shall be &lad to write to any one who may be interested in bit cure. B. Hiram Matfa'ngly, Ver million. S. Dak.. Aug. 18, 1906." Bold thmufrhout the world. Potter Drag A (rm. Corp.. Sole Props..

Notwithstanding the intense heat of yesterday the open air theater at "Vine wood Park played to capacity on the opening night for the season., and the company merited the support given it. The Springfield team comes tomor row for a series of three games with the Topeka team. If Springfield metes out the customary treatment to the To peka team, the locals are scheduled to drop three games. Following the report that the mer cury reached 95 yesterday comes the story that the Val Blatz Brewing company will withdraw from the state on account of the activity of Attorney General Fred Jackson. No admission charge will be made to the theater at Vinewood park this week owing to the fact that the free attrac tion arranged for the week failed to ar rive owing to the illness of one of the members of the company. The meeting of the state tax com mission which was to have been held Wednesday has been postponed on account of the absence from the city of several of the members and will probably be held Friday. Another mad dog was killed by a po liceman yeEterday. It had been thor oughly anointed with gasoline by a couple of young ladies who were anx ious to rid his dogship of fleas, and it was little wonder that the dog was mad. The announcement that the East Sixth street viaduct will be completed within ten days, will be welcome news to the residents of the east side who have been greatly handicapped while the viaduct has been under reconstruc tion. Tetanus, the grim aftermath, of the Fourth of July is almost due though from the few accidents reported the indications are that Topeka will be spared this year and perhaps the "sane Fourth" is in some, measure respon sible. Of the 13 games which have been played between the Hutchinson ball team and the White Sox, the former has captured seven and the best that Topeka can do is to tie, break even by winning the last game of the present series. Pie Jordan yesterday afternoon made his fifth escape from the city Jail. He has so far succeeded in escaping from every cell in the city Jail and if he is ever recaptured it will be a hard pro position to find some method of keep ing him. The head of the household will un doubtedly recall the fact that there were no cheap strawberries on the mar ket this season and from the indica tions the high prices will prevail the remainder of the season as far as their successors are concerned. The contractors who agreed to have the East Sixth avenue viaduct com pleted and open for traffic by the first of the present month have issued a bulletin to the effect that the structure will be completed in ten days, which is only one of numerous forecasts which they have sent out. HIS WIFE IN POLITICS. Husband of a Finnish Deputy At tempts to Commit Suicide. London, July 9. A St. Petersburg dis patch to the Daily Mail says that the husband of one of the women deputies In the Finnish parliament tried unsuc cessfully to commit suicide and the rea son he gave for the attempt was that his wife was so occupied with political work that she neglected her home. The misery to which he and his family were reduced, he said, drove him to despera tion. SAUNA JOINTS RAIDED. Police Find Several Cases of Beer and Bottles of Whisky. Salina. July 9. The police made several raids here, one over Hinkle's restaurant and one over Holzmeister's cigar store. At the first place they got four cases of beer, three empty cases, two gallons of whisky, cork screws and other fixtures. At the oth er place they got three bottles of whis ky and fixtures. An injunction was granted by Probate Judge Supple against the owners of the building, and Joe Kube as the operator of the place, restraining them from using the place as a joint.

Council Wants JHore Sidewalks Than Ordered. Accordingly Committee Has to Make Snpplemental Report. WILL CUT THE WEEDS City Prisoners Ordered to Wield the Scythe.' Last Chapter in Smith Street - Opening Is Written. The council kicked over the bars which the streets and walks committee had carefully erected to keep out cer tain sidewalk petitions and forced the committee to have another session in the midst of the evening's meeting and pass favorably upon petitions which had previously rejected. It was rubblne salt into tho wnnnia Councilman E. 'Montgomery, who is now the watchdog of the treasury, cnairman of the ways and means com mittee, protested loudly and long against allowing an increase in the numoer or petitions but he was count ed out too. Montgomery claimed that the city's finances did not permit it to indulge in so much sidewalk construction. As the grading is done by the street commissioner and this cost is borne by the city at large, with about 75 blocks or sidewalk already recommended there was some point to Mr. Montgomery's reraarns. The fight centered on a hlook of side walk on Tyler street, between Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets where there was one house in the entire block, though the promise was held out that others would be erected. This petition was turned down origi nally by the streets and walks commit tee but was finally granted last even ing along with two other petitions which went through the same experi ence and which called for sidewalks on the north side of Euclid avenue from Topeka to Kansas avenues and on the west side of Liberty street between faixtn ana JKighth avenues. Other petitions favorably considered were: West side of College: avenue. Fif teenth street to Sixteenth street. North side of Euclid avenue. College (avenue to isoswell avenue.

The report of the appraisers for the opening of Smith street between Sev enth and Eighth streets was approved last evening. This is the last of. a liti gation which has extended over a period of two years on the widening of a street for an additional 30 feet. Two different reports of appraisers have been submit ted and court proceedings held to set aside the first appraisement. The total cost now to the property owners will be $621.55 while the original appraisement was $335. A special session of the coun cil will be held next Monday at 7:30 to listen to remonstrances to the report ap proved last evening. The prisoners at the city jail Instead of employing all of their time breaking rock will be taken out by the sanitary policemen and set to work over the city cutting weeds. A resolution covering this was introduced last evening and adopted. The new method will make it somewhat simpler for "Pie" Jordan to escape.

The Tempting: Harvest Wages Take Men From the Railroads. Wichita. Kan..

The Old World Champion to Start for Another Record. Minneapolis, July 9. The Tribune says: "You are the most wonderful horse I ever saw and I never expect to see your equal," remarked Harry Hersey, as he stepped down from the sulky, after driving Dan Patch his last "workout mile" on the track at Sav age. "I think he'll do for this time of the year," he continued, turning to M. W. Savage, the horse's owner, who had been watching the exhibition. "He went in 2:11 and never turned a hair or took a long breath. If nothing happens I think we will be able to show the public some things by the time Dan appears at Hamline, Sept. 2." "Do you mean by that that you think Dan will beat 1:55 this season?" asked a spectator. "We are making no predictions of that kind," replied the veteran train er. "We are going to do our best.

San Francisco, Cal., July 9. "Whip Mike Schreck, and I will talk fight with you." These were the words James J. Jeffries, champion of them all and referee of the Burns-Squires fight, sent back to Tommy after Burns had sent his repre sentative to Jeff asking whether the big fellow now considered him worthy of a fight. Contrary to expectations, Squires will not sail for Australia on the first boat. Barney Reynolds today received a wi:e from Wren, the Australian bookmaker, who has Squires under contract, that all of Australia is in gloom, but that he should cheer up and use his own Judg ment. He suggested that Squires take on the lesser heavy weights. There is already some talk of match ing Bill and Al Kaufman in a twenty round battle. Confident that he has the making of a good fighter, if not a real champion, Reynolds today declared he would put Squires through Borne hard boxing matches with some of the clever est of the American fighters to teach him more fully the American method of the art of self-defense. While Reynolds did not sanction the move, he intimated that a match between Squires and Kauf man was perfectly to his liking. Squires has made a lot of friends, de spite his misfortune. He did not whine or offer excuses. He merely told the evident truth that he fought careless ly, that he got a "bloody good licking," and that he considered himself a dub for getting it. A Y. M. C. A.
