MO. jj THIN FOLKS MADE FAT. Good, healthy flesh can only be pained by the use of the proper food, together with natural action of the or gans of assimilation. Nine people out of ten in order to weigh as much as they ought and be perfectly healthy, should use Samose, the great flesh forming food and health restorer. Weigh yourself before commencing to use these little tablets, and see how your weight increases from week to week. 1 Samose does not contain a particle of starch or pepsin, nor is it any naus eating preparation, such as is usually recommended to make people fat and which does not build up good healthy tissues. Samose has valuable flesh forming properties, tones up and strengthens the whole system, helps the food that Is eaten to be assimilated in a natural manner and absolutely re stores health to all the organs. If you are not perfectly satisfied with the results from Samose, Geo. W. Stansfield, druggist, 632 Kansas avenue, Topeka, will return your money with out any quibbling. Sent postpaid on re ceipt of price, 50c. Adv. J. W. F. Hughes For Mayor .". vVX-.::..';:4 ;S I ! . p ,-- ,-V 4 With only a few more weeks assured them in office, the board of city com missioners of Topeka have placed them selves on record in opening the new year with a saving in the annual bud get of expenses. According to a report of the first two months of 1913 pre pared by Roy L. Bone, city commis sioner of finance and revenue, already the officials at the city hall have suc ceeded in slicing $2,400 from the running expenses of the municipal government, the showing made. These bills could for January and February the city commissioners have authorized expen ditures amounting to $44,000. Under normal conditions and under the nat ural system of maintenance charges, the city wculd have spent $46,400 in the first two months of the year. The bills paid In January and Febru ary include a number of extraordinary expenditures bringing the monthly average up to an amount larger than the showing made. These bills could , have been paid later in the year. The present board of city commis- ' sioners lowered the budget last year until tnousands or dollars of needed improvements were abandoned in order to cut down the taxes. This same board : , succeeded in 1912 in closing the year's ousiness wttn a surplus in the treas ury thefirst time this feat has been accomplished in the history of Topeka. If the record of the first two months is maintairipd, a larger surplus will be recorded at the end of the present year. From the report made .today it Is apparent that the present board intends , to turn over to the incoming tdminis- I tration a clean slate and a surplus on I which to make a record. The new board will begin operations in April under i most favorable conditions money in the treasury over the budget appropria tions and all municipal departments in excellent shape. The larger items for the months of January and February include: Fire department $13,601.95 Folice department 7,533.58 Melan bridge excavation 5,176.02 Electric light plant 3.515.20 Street department 4.223.38 City officers 1.716.66 Sanitary department 1 1,046.40 Crematory 1,742.28 Engineering department 1,364.64 THE LIGHTEST DOCKET Very Few Criminal Cases Carried to April Term. When you want a man to look after your business you always hire a man of experience, who has made good in a similar posi tion. As councilman, and as mayor of Topeka, Mr. Hughes made an enviable record. He guarantees to give the same faithful service to the manage ment of the city's affairs, should the ' citizens of Topeka again honor him with the office of mayor. Mr. Hughes stands for clean streets and clean alleys, clean men and morals. A strict en forcement of all laws. A dollar's value for every dollar expended. A light at every street crossing. Such a platform should meet with the general approval of all citizens. If you want to nominate a "good government" man for mayor, who can be elected, Hughes should receive your vote at the primary.
