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.

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

THE LIGHTEST DOCKET
Very Few Criminal Cases Carried to
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
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
If you want to nominate a
"good government" man for
mayor, who can be elected,
Hughes should receive your vote
at the primary.
The April term criminal docket, that
has just been completed, is the light
est in point of number of cases in a
number of years. The reason for this
is that County Attorney W. E. Atchi
son has insisted upon cleaning up all
the old cases possible to be disposed
of, and is carrying forward very few
cases to the next term.
There are only 72 cases entered on
the docket. Of this number several at

disposed of, there being a setting of
liquor cases next week. Of the number
also there are 10 liquor cases in which
convictions have been secured and
sentence has been deferred, which will
be disposed of by Judge H. Whitcomb
before the end of the team.
There are only 18 cases other than
liquor cases that have been entered
on the docket, and every one of them
are .practically new, and ready for
trial. These cases are divided as fol
lows: Robbery, 1; grand larceny, 2;
embezzlement, 1; murder, the Andrew
Wallace case. 1; coercion, 1; petty
larceny, 1; statutory assault, 1; hunting
without permission, 1; forgery, 2; wife
desertion, 1; selling cream under the
test, 1; assault and battery. 1; larceny
from the person, 1; assault with intent
to kill, 1; arson, 1, and street walking,
There are 16 appeals from the police
court entered upon the docket. In four
of these cases convictions have been
secured in the district court and sen
tences have been deferred or dismissals
have been entered on the payment of
costs by the defendants and the costs
have not been paid. Six cases are ap
peals from convictions in the police
court on charges of maintaining liquor
nuisances, four are for street walking,
one for disturbing the peace and one
The docket as completea carried 62
court cases. Of this number, 22 are
for divorce 13 more are for divorce
and alimony. Five ask injunction. The
remainder are partition suits, ejectment
Damage suits wherein a total of
$103,394.22 Is asked, are on the same
court docket, the first division of the
district court. The largest single case
is that of H. C. Ericsson against J. E.
Couch. H. C. Davis and A. R. Whiting
for false arrest and imprisonment.
There are 17 such cases in which the
amounts vary from $553.72 at the low
est to $30,000 asked by Ericsson.
On the same docket are 25 cases ask
ing for accounting, insurance money,
suits on promissory notes, etc., involv
ing an aggregate of $46,145.30. There
are a total of 233 cases on the docket
as it has been prepared. They are di
vided as follows: Criminal cases, 72:
