The country roads are in bad condi tion and the visits of farmers to To jieka are few and far between. Here is an item that is really worth while. After an absence of over a week Old Sol is paying Kansas a visit today. George Burghart has returned from Cincinnati where he won a bushel bas ket full of prizes at the pigeon show-. The Saturday Night club will con sume a barrel of oysters tonight, do nated to the club by O. L. Clarke of Oalveston. Texas. " Examinations, the final ones of the first semester at Washburn college, will be the order next week. The second semester will commence the first week in February. ' The bovs gymnasium class of the Provident Association was the guest of tJ-.e Washburn-William Jewell basket ball game and were shown some very classy playing. Twenty-four babes of the Provident day nursery were taken through the Midwinter exposition at the invitation of Manager George Bainter and the boys' gym class and the girls' sewing classes are to have the same treat this evening. The smallpox scare at Washburn per formed a charitable act and bore out the statement that it is an ill wind that blows nobody good. The faculty became so frightened over the small pox that they forgot to investigate the scandal "Who Danced In Rice Hall?" A peculiar incident in connection with the recovery of lost valuables in the Copeland fire, has just come to light. Chief Justice W. A. Johnston tost a diamond shirt stud, and it was found frozen in the ice on the under side of a table, which was in his room. The house committee of three, which was appointed to confer with the coun ty attorney, the city fire marshal and the chairman of the fire committee of the city council failed to put in an ap pearance at the called meeting, and an effort will be made to get the commit tee together again soon. During the heavy fog it was impos sible to see the clock on the federal building tower and the street car head- lights could not be seen over a block away. All or tne street car men naa orders to leave their searchlights burn ing when they met each other and when they were on Kansas avenue. The crack bowling team of Topeka composed of Mr. Harry Wolf. Mr. A. p..- Kirkpatrick. Mr. Ike Barnum, and Mr. Arthur Wo'f goes to St, Joseph, Mo., where they will enter the Mis souri valley tournament which lasts for ten days to compete with the best bowlers from all over the country . Street Commissioner Frank Snyder fays there is more dirt on the streets of Topeka this week than in any other time in the history of the city. The long siege of snow and the sand on the new pavements over the city com bined with the regular dirt made the streets almost impossible to clean. All of the street workers, flushes, sprink lers and sweepers are working over time. As soon as the sun dries the ground work can be recommenced on the To-peka-Southwestern road. The work, according to the officials, was delayed on account of the ground being frozen, and the right of way not having been acquired within the city limits. The right of way has probably been secured by this time, as the officials of the road announced that it would be within ten Cheer Up by a change from coffee to well-boiled POSTUM "There's a Reason" Read - The Road to Wellille " In pkgs no MORE HALF SOLEIfiG f at- . - PrjT ri.-y .... it :jmr-3r IMPERISHABLE SOLE TRADE MARK Imperishable Sole Shoes will give the greatest wear.

Nothing doing along this line for almost a week at the pro bate court. It is pretty hard to start down the path of life with overcoat and rubber boots and with the sun an unknown factor. But it is expected that business will pick up now since the weather has changed. It is the opinion of Miss Richardson who smiles on the brides at the probate court that leap year has cleaned out most of the available stock. But from the looks of the city "bloods" who buzz around the court house there seems to be an other think coming. PGM7. Paid In Full," Eugene "Walter's great play of contemporary American life, which was presented at the Grand earlier in the season, has been seen here again with another cast, at the theater again last night and is the bill for tonight. The company which was here before was headed by Guv Bates Pnst and Miss Clara Blandick was the leading woman. It was undoubtedly superior to the present one in some respects, al- iiiuusu liiis one includes some excep tionally good players and the produc tion in every way is worthy and inter esting. If you have never seen "Paid In Full" don't put it oft any longer. No better play has ever been written by an American and this is not th opinion of one snip of a reporter in Topeka, Kansas, but the verdict of competent criticism throughout this country. The London production of "Paid In Full" was not a success. The British ers didn't like it and it was taken off after a short run. Its failure is unaccountable, for although the play begins in a Harlem flat and never gets away from the Harlem atmosphere, Its appeal would seem to be universal and one would think it might have equal application and relevancy In Blooms- Dury ana Aiayfair, ParkdaSe . and tcninestone avenue. "Paid In Full is a picture from life, so vivid in its characterizations, so true in all its es sential details, its drama so unforced and its situations so convincing that it grips and thrills like a personal experi ence. The most jaded theater-goer has many moments in its four acts when he forgets that he is in a playhouse and this is surely the supreme test of play and actors. Mr. William L. Gibson, in the grace less role of Joseph Brooks, gives a strong delineation of the most master ly character of recent American drama. It must have been this typical grouch. Brooks, who made the managers shy at Mr. Walter's play the two or three years he was hawking it around among them unsuccessfully. Perhaps they thought it was no use trying to force this wholesome illustration of old fashioned and almost forgotten prin ciples, upon a public which had been "eating" the half-baked political and economical rantings of plays like The Lion and the Mouse and The Man of the Hour. And yet Brooks proved to be a master stroke and the popularity of "Paid In Full" has shown that we still believe, as a people, in the doc trine, undisputed in the early days of the Republic, that success in this land of the free and home of the brave, is largely a question of personal ability and endeavor and that, like happiness it is within us. Mr. Gibson Brooks is faithfully worked out to the last detail with a keen sense of its dramatic val ues and is a portrayal not soon to be forgotten. Mr. Walter does not believe in the lone-man play and "Paid In Full" one might almost say. has three leading I roles. That picturesque old brute, .Captain Williams, is as striking and powerful an imaginary projection as Brooks, and "Jimpsy" Smith is no saw dust hero, but a flesh and blood char acterization. Mr. Scott Siggins Is the Captain Williams of this company and brings to the role the repelling brutality and the compelling vigor, the rugged exterior and the fine flashes of splend id generosity and reverence which it demands. Mr. Albert Brown's Jimp sy is a delightful study, of many fine touches. Miss Sara Perry as Mrs. Brooks. Miss Rose Snvder as Mrs. 'Harris and Miss Pauline Darling as .Beth complete a cast of much strength and merit. A. F. J. CLEAN THE PHONE City May Install a System of Inspection. Claimed That Disease Is Spread by Telephone Mouthpieces. FOR NEW WATER MAIN Mayor Green's Plan for Bnsi- ness District FaTored. System Followed in "New York and Philadelphia. The city health department is in terested in the sanitary condition of the telephones over the city. In some cities it is required of everyone using telephones to cleanse the mouthpiece at least once a day with some dis infectant. It has been found that hydrogen. It has been found that many diseases have been spread by a telephone which is used by different people every day. The city officials think that it would be advisable for an inspector to make an examination of telephone mouthpieces in the of fices, especially, over the city and re port to what extent they harbor dis ease bacteria and whether they con stitute a danger to public health. It can be easily seen that the telephone can be a meaAs of spreading con tagion and the matter, though new, would be a profitable one for the city of Topeka to look into. Topeka is constantly "at home" to conventions and meetings of all kinds and in the last month there have been on an average of one convention here a day. This constant throng of people and the public use of the telephone forms anample chance for the gathering of the bacteria in the telephone mouth pieces. The telephones in the down town stores and on the larger offices especially would bear a strict exam ination by the city. Since the high pressure water mains suggested by Mayor Green have been discussed there has been considerable comment going over the city as to the advisability of the plan and every person interviewed has given an unanimous aye" to the proposition Not only have the local men been in terviewed but the conditions in other cities have been solicited. It has been found that New York city and Phlla delphta are conducting their fire pro tection in the business districts on the high pressure system. On the other hand Indianapolis has decided that they do not need it. In the Indiana city they have 110 pounds of pressure at the hydrant and they feel that this Is sufficient. Topeka can acquire a 110 pound pressure at the average hydrant but it takes a steamer to do anything with It. There are several cities in the country sending special representatives to the two high pres sure cities New York and Philadel phia and In a few years the high pressure system will be adopted all over the United States. Topeka has an excellent chance to build her new up town district water main at once cohsidering the location and ad vantages of the Harrison street sta tion and action should not be delayed. Mayor Green hit a responsive chord when he mentioned the high pressure water main and while the irons are hot It is time for the city to act. It is a well known fact that when the mem ory of the . disastrous Copeland fire dies down the matter will receive lit tie attention from the general public and at the present time when the peo ple are heartily In favor of the plan is the time for the hammer to ian. iiere is an example of the work done this week by the fire department of New York city under the high pressure system: "Three fires on a cold night, with a wind blowing, demonstrated the efficiency of the high pressure fire sys tem. Seven of the ten pumps in the stations were brought into action at one time, throwing a volume of 21,000 gallons of water a minute, and over six hundred nremen were on auiy. Fortv-seven engines which responded seventeen at one fire, ten at another and twenty at a third, were or no use after the high pressure was turned on. The first fire alarm, on Hudson street, was turned in at 7:22, the sec ond, on the Bowery, at 7:45, and the third at 8:17. Chief Croker said that never in his twenty-five years' exper ience as a fireman had he known of such a severe test of the capacity or the department." " . in a fitv in Massachusetts the superintendent of the waterworks satisfied the angry mob of water users who claimed that tneir meters were running too fast by taking a meter apart and exhibiting the parts to the public and explaining the warking ac tions. Meters run all right on paper and in the factory but when they are placed down in the depths of the cel lar they have a peculiar tendency to run Just a little faster. But it is an ill wind that blows nobody good who would get the big plumbers fees if the meters did not nave to oe iesiea : v iiai i -3 ...... - - - - - - . . - i. e . . I.-atii-ltv la tn ......

Sanitary Sergeant Patterson is con stantly on the lookout for the pre vention of disease in the city of To peka ana ne is talking with the city officials today concerning . the ad visability of fumigating the school buildings over the city once In every two weeks. This would be a mighty good plan ror tne public health es pecially since the smallpox scare of a few weeks ago, when all of the con tagion over the eity came from the association of school children. The question Is shall the city pay for the fumigation or is it up to the school board to stand the expense? But this is a minor matter when the public health is concerned. The advisability of such a plan will . undoubtedly go before the council at their next meet ing, on the first Monday in February.

Swift's Gul liver s Travels. The- above observation became a classic only by reason of its sound logic, and because it was the one ray of truth in the biggest hot air etory every printed. It was chosen for to day s quotation because It has a close application to the subject of this sketch a farmer who made his money farm ing his farm instead of farming the public. Mr. Cline, of Montgomery county. owns and operates one of the finest farms in that section. His domain is situated a few miles from Coffeyville and under his management has netted him a comfortable fortune. This- trip to the Kansas legislature, is his first shy in state politics.

When this surface map of Mr. Cline was manufactured, the gentleman was carefully perusing the anti-lob" bill line by line. A thin mark of disgust showed around the corner of his moustache, and he said nothing. Per haps the Gentleman from Montgomery thinks that one who is so blamed afraid of being "approached" by a lob byist that he must wall himself about with an anti-temptation bill, would better stav at home. The Gentleman from Montgomery is an Elk. He is also branded as a "good Indian," and that helps some. The reapportionment legislation now before the legislature, win go througn without a doubt. The persons who drew these bills, were clever enough to make the changes in only a few coun ties. Any legislator will gladly vote to knock out a representative in some other district, and the dismal howls of the losers will be as sweet music in their ears. (Now that paragraph deserves a prize.

New York has never before witnessed such a spectacle as may be seen every day tA Broadway and Ninth street. It is here that T. Cooper, the Western stomac'iologist, whe claims that stom ach trouble is at the bottom of all chronic ill health, is meeting the pub lic. It "would be difficult to estimate Just how many people call to talk wUh Cooper during a single da The store where he is holding forth seems to have become the Mecca for ailing peo ple in New York, and the amount of medicine he is disposing is enormous. In addition to what he sells, hlms -T. druggists generally throughout New York are handling his preparations out In unlimited quantities. A leading druggist said recently: "The public seems to have lost its mind over this man Cooper. Personally. I ilon't know anything about his medicine. We -had nothing to do with his con.ing to New York and he has until recentiy sold his preparation entirely through one company. I suppose he thought New York was like one of his Western towns and everybody could be supplied from a corner drug store. He woke up about a week ago and put it on sale everywhere. Since then we have been selling it. I don't know how Ions this demand will last, but I have never be fore seen anything like it." In an interview Monday afternoon Cooper said: "I am not making any wild claims for my medicine. , All it does is to stimulate the gastric Juices and regulate the digestive organs, but peo ple do not realize how splendid their health would be if only their stomachs Lots of bargains in tonight's All our Misses' and Children' Coats offered at exactly Original Price $9.50 $1.00 Corset Coverings for 75c Yard One of our regular embroidery houses has sent us for this sale about fifteen pieces of this very dainty Swiss Corset Cover Embroidery with exquisite Filet designs. 500 yards of 35c Corset Cover Embroidery in this sale at 25c yard.

After I leave New York I shall take two months" rest and then go to London to introduce Cooper's New Discovery ia England." Among New Yorkers who have re cently become enthusiasts on the sub ject of Cooper's medicine, is Oeorge J. Scott, of No. 274 West Nineteenth street, who said Monday afternoon: "It is hard to realize that any medicine will do all that Is claimed for it. "I have taken all ktnds of medicine for ten years and this is the first I have ever found that was worth two cents. I have had rheumatism constant ly for ten years and have spent a quar ter of what I made, for doctors and medicines. I might have taken so much rain water for all the good they did me. . Before I had taken this Cooper's New Discovery a week, I realized it was worth something. I have taken It a month and I am as well as I ever was in my life. I have no rheumatism and eat like a horse. 1 feei like doing something now, where a month ago I hated to walk a block. When I first bought it I thought it was another fako. but now I know better. All the other stuff I have taken was worth nothing; this is worth ten, yes, twenty tinvs what they ask for it." t . . . Cooper's New Discovery is now on sale at leading druggists the country over.
