Fifty-Six Years Ago.
Flfty-slx years ago at 718 Tth street Mr.
Anton Eberly established a stove store,
and It Is there today, the business being
conducted by A. F. Eberly. The firm name
is A Ex-rly's Sons but the present head of
the business is the only surviving brother.
As other business houses along 7th street
have grown, so too has this one. and at the
present tune the Eberlj store occupies the
three full storl, ?; and a basement at 718, as
well as ^ r*^rby former school bouse as a
warehouse Everything In the line of
kitchen equipment is on display at the
Eberly store, and the plan of the firm, "al
ways to do what they say they will do,"
has won It the hosts of friends who ma
terially assist In making this one of the
largos', and best of the exclusive stove
stores In the District.
At the northeast corner of 7th and I
streets the big store of House & Herrmann,
of six stories and basement. Is another
landmark for 7th street shoppers. This
llrtn handles furniture particularly, and
they make a point, both In and out of sea
on, to have on hand everything that may
be needed by the householder. One of the
Specialties of the Arm is go-carts, and one
of their managers said a few days ago that
they have now more than one hundred
?tyles in their show rooms.
As an evidence of the great and continu
ous growth akmg 7th street there Is prob
ably no more eloquent argument than the
signs and advertlsemetns of two of the
largest firms in the vicinity of 7th and K
streets, both King's Palace and Jackson
Brother* call ins attention to big reduction
pales on account of projected new build
ing operations. It Is the Intention Of the
Jackson store to extend the estaMlshment
s-1 as to Include S23-25 Tth street, .tnd that
will give them more than one-half of the
ea?t - 'de of Tth street In their block The
oulideis for Jackson Brothers take posses

At King's Palace it Is proposed to en
large the store so as to take In the full
second and third floors, 810-16 7th street.
Inclusive, in place of the flrst-floor sales
room which comprises the present estab
lishment. Elevators and other modem
equipment will be included in the improve
ment of the store.
A notable event at the Intersection of 7th
and K streets last week w;is the thirtieth
birthday sale at Halm's shoe store. This
building faces Mt Vernon square, on the
K Ftrcet side, and its fine appearance Is
one of the substantial marks which goes
to demonstrate the fact that Tth street is
being improved as rapidly ns the business
men along its length can consummate their
desires to make the expansion necessary to
meet their constantly growing trade.
Out of seventeen stores on its side of
the block on 7th street between I and K
street" members of the firm of Golden
bergs' trike pride in pointing to the fact
that they have nine. Their establishment
comprises the numbers inclusive,
and it. like several other houses along the
thoroughfare, has grown to its present pro
portions as one of the city's largest de
partment stores from a very modest be
ginning. When they opened for business
on Tth street Ooldenbergs say they were
not at all sanguine of success, but the
results that have crowned their labors
have brought out another of the vast busi
ness improvements that have made Tth
street what it Is today. One feature that
is contained in Goldenbergs' is a soda foun
tain, and for volume of sales it is one
of the banner sections of the store. A
member of the firm said yesterday that one
day recently there had been sold the grand
total of H.892 glasses of soda water from
Another Example of Growth.
Still another example of the growth of
7th street business is furnished by the
store of P. J. Nee, at the southeast cor
ner of Tth and H streets. Mr. Nee started
several years ago in the furniture busi
ness In the ground floor store room at the
H street corner, and by close attention to
the wants of his customers he built up
a trade which absolutely demanded more
room, and an addition was planned and
constructed in the rear, so that the Net
store now includes three floors and a base
ment on the H street front, with the big
original first floor room fronting 7th street.
The Peter Grogan store, embracing K19
B23 Tth street, Is another of the estab
lishments that have gained a firm hold
upon the purchasing agents of hundreds
upon hundreds of Washington families, and
the credit system, made synonymous with
the Grogan name, has bc-tn the feature of
the business. The founder of the store
lied a few years ago, but the enterprise
has been carried on In the same lines by
the sons, who succeeded to the business

MOUNTAINEER HORSE THIEF.
How He Managed to Make a Double
Haul and Get Away.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Some people who think there can be no
mental alertness without financial pros
perity feel sorry for the poor mountaineers
of tho Alleghanles. Tliey are not In need
of any sympathy. A wealthy stock raiser
in the blue grass of Kentucky had this
forcibly Impressed on him. He lost a valu
able horse and offered a reward for Infor
mation about It. In a short time he re
ceived a letter from a point in the moun
tains that a horse answering the descrip
tion had been sold In that neighborhood
by a peddler. As the place was remote
from a railroad, the owner concluded to
make the Journey on horseback. He found
his correspondent, spent the mglit with him
und next morning the two went In quest of
the animal. Establishing his claim, the
owner paid over to his companion the
amount of the reward. The latter Imme
diately paid It to the man who had bought
the horse, saying he had purchased In good
faith, and It was only fair that he should
have It. The act of neighborly kindness
bo impressed the owner that he immediate
ly added enough to compensate the pur
chaser for his entire outlay.
That night he again stayed with his cor
respondent. Several other men came In
after supper, and the host recounted the
affair of the day, laying particular stress
upon the gentleman's generosity in paying
more than he had offered in order to se
cure a poor man against loss. This seemed
to please the guests very much. They
stayed until late, doing what they could
to entertain the stranger, and succeeded
so well that he reproached himself for his
former unworthy feeling toward these hon
est guileless souls, and determined that
his neighbors should know how unjust and
uncalled-for their prejudice was.
Next morning he arose eaily, intending
to depart as soon as possible and cover
a long distance before night But there
was no sign of breajefast, and it was some
time before he couid i nil any one about
the shanty. At lawt he saw a little girl
dodging around out in the timber, who said
in responce to his questions? when lie could
get within hailing distance?that "Pap's
done gone off down the holler, an' they
ain't nobody at home on'y but just me."
"Can't 1 get my breakfiast?"
"They hain't nothin' cooked."
"Can't you conk something?"
"They ain't nothing to cook."
"Have my horses been fed?"
"Well, I don't understand this way or
doing business. I'll feed and go on."
When he reached the stable he under- I
stood. Horses, saddles and bridles were
gone. The scheme had been to get the I
reward and steal the horse again. When
he rode up on another norse there was !
that much more for them. They had kept j
him so busy the night before that he had
neglected to look after them, and all the
while he was feeling ashamed of himself
his stock was hot footing to Virginia.
National Investment Company.
Realizing that an opportunity existed in
Washington for a flrst-class investment
company that would be national in its
scope and purposes and that would give its
clients and stockholders an opportunity of
making larger earnings on their money
than is possible by the ordinary small In
vestments. the National Investment Com
pany, with offices In the Munsey building,
has been incorporated, capitalized at $600,
000. of which $.'<35,000 has been subscribed
and paid in. S. J. Masters is president, R.
P. Andrews, secretary and treasurer, and
W. Owynn Gardiner, attorney.
The object of the company Is to do a
general brokerage business, deal In all first
class securities, either as a company in
vestment or commissioned by their stock
holders and clients; to buy and sell stocks,
bonds and real estate, making loans upon
first-class securities and promoting and
financing legitimate business propositions
and marketing its securities.
Small Investors as a rule are unable to
obtain stock In corporations, except at such
prices as would earn from 3 to 4 per cent.
The reason for this Is that when these com
panies are being formed, the first allot
ment of stock Is taken by the officers and
promoters, and by the time It 1b offered
to the public the price has gone to a point
where as an Investment4 the earnings will
only net a low rate of interest.
This company will offer to Its stockhold
ers and clients the securities of first-class
business propositions at first cost, which
will enable them to reap the benefit of a
much larger rate of Interest than they are
otherwise able to do.
New York a Thirsty Town.
From Pearson'* Mafaxitie.
The borough of Manhattan annually con
sumes about 100,000 barrels of whisky,
which cost the consumers $2,600,000. To this
item must be added 90,000 barrels of other
spirits, sold for $500,000; 200,000 cases of
champagne, for which $6,600,000 is paid;
4.000,000 gallons of other wines and bran
dies, costing $27,000,000, and last but not
least Important. 6,000,000 barrel-* of b?er,
selling for $100,000,000. This makes a total
of $135,000,000?a sum sufficient to create
and maintain forever a great university like
Yale or Harvard . It is a fact rather Inter
esting to consider that if all this beer and
liquor were put Into a tank and were al
lowed to run through an ordinary water tap
at the rate of a gallon a minute the recep
tacle would require ninety-nine years and
thirty-six days to empty itself.

SOME ODD ELOPEMENTS.
Woman Buns Away With Living
Skeleton?Fat Man's Experience.
From tbe London Tit-Bits.
A freak known as Princess Anetta, pos
sessing neither arms nor legs, until lately
on exhibition in Geneva, has just eloped
with a young German named- Starker,
whom she first met while on show In the
Swiss town. Love did not at first run
smoothly with the couple by reason of the
uncompromising attitude of the lady's im
pressarlo, against whom the resourceful
lover lodged a complaint of ill-treatment.
An arrest followed and the young man,
seizing his opportunity, bore off his Inamo
rata to church, where the ceremony, dur
ing which the limbless bride was held in
the bridegroom's arms, was duly per
A few years ago a living skeleton who
was on view in the Prater, at Vienna, was
found missing. The proprietor of the show,
furious at his loss, at once set about track
ing the vanished freak, who certainly, by
reason of his bodily weakness, could not
of his own unaided efforts have proceeded
far. After two hours quest he came up
with the skeleton being wheeled along In a
barrow by a stout country woman, who for
the consideration of a few florins treacher
ously surrendered her emaciated lover.
The Belgian capital was the scene of a
frustrated elopement when a colossus
named Servan managed to start on his
flight with the daughter of a Brussels doc
tor. but ere the station was reached the
springs of the fiacre gave way beneath his
excessive avoirdupois, and he and his
fiancee subsided into the road, greatly to
the delight of the onlookers, whose merri
ment was in no wise lessened by the ar
rival of the would-be bride's father, .who
without more ado proceeded to belabor the
prostrate carcass of the fat lover. Then,
his strength and anger being exhausted, he
led his daughter home.
Another man mountain, in the person of
Herr Gartner, whose forty-five stone kept
his employer in easy circumstances, evoked
the love of a well-to-do widow, who re
solved to make him her second mate.
Everything went well; the absence of his
employer was for a brief spell assured, and
with much puffing and blowing Herr Gart
ner tottered to the carriage that was wall
ing to bear him away to freedom and wed
lock. Alas! His fiancee hail not taken his
size into calculation; he could by no means
pass through the carriage door. His and
her utmost efforts were in vain, and at
last, utterly exhausted, he staggered back
to the house, whence he never agatn
Marriage, however, resulted from the
elopement of a German dwarf named
Weber, who was a mannlkin In the show
line, with the daughter of a rich Berlin
tradesman, who naturally viewed with high
disfavor his daughter's predilection for the
undersized freak. A strict watch was kept
on her movements, but all vigilance was
rendered futile by the cunning of the pig
my. who, disguised as a baby, was wheeled
In a perambulator to an appointed tryst,
where he was handed over to hla bride,
who. taking him in her arms, carried him
off to the church and wedlock almost under
the eyes of her relatives.
The widow of a substantial Warsaw
tradesman fell in love with a living skele
ton on exhibition at a booth, and induced
him to visit her at her house. Here she de
clared her passion, and upon its meeting
with but cold response she seized the
wretched freak and, having gagged hint,
placed him in a large box, procured to meet
the emergency, inclosed wherein she had
him rapidly driven to a villa owned by her
in the suburbs, and there kept him pris
oner until he agreed to her proposal.

LOTS OF WORK FOB THE LIVEB.
Manufacturer, Scavenger, Filter, Life
Preserver and Closed Door. *
From Sandow's Magazine.
The business of the liver is to mnmifac
ture antidotes for poisons it is a render
ing establishment to <^hich the little
corpses that accumulate In the body are
carried to be destroyed. Just as In cities,
dead animals are gathered up by a scaven- "
ger and converted into usefiil things.
All the corpuscles of the body die every
six weeks. Kvery second of our lives some
thing like 18 < 00,000 of these red colls have
to be disposed of, and the liver does part
of the work of grinding them up and work
ing them over into something useful.
The red corpuscles Have potash in them,
which is used tor making bile. The bile
is a kind of lye for making soap in the
small intestines. The soap, like all good
home-made soaps, is disinfectant; it is a
splendid antiseptic and germicide.
The coloring matter is carefully saved
out of these red cells, and sent back Into
the body to be used for dyeing the hair,
tinting the skin, and painting the dark
chambers of the eye where the photo
graphing iB done.
If the liver does not do this work as
efficiently as It ought these little corpses
accumulate In the body. In other words,
the body becomes a sepulcher and we carry
about with us dead thing* that should have
been discharged from the body through the
bowels, the kidneys, the skin and the lungs
and should have returned to dust again.
The liver is a closed door which keeps
poisons out of the rest of the body. The
kidneys, skin and lungs are open doors to
let the poiBons escape from the body. When
there comes such a flood upon the liver
it cannot keep the door shut; It Is forced
open a little way and lets the poisons i
through into the blood.
Then the blood is not purified, the Im
purities go through and the body becomes
filled with them. The brain becomes con
fused, dull, stupid, and the man feels bil
ious; the poisons get into the muscles, and
he feels weary and worn out; they get
Into the nerves, and he has sciatica or
lumbago; the nerve centers get irritable ;
and inefficient, and there is nervous ex
haustion, and perhaps melancholia.
All the food taken into the stomach is
filtered by the liver be'ore it is absorbed.
That Is why one can, with apparent Im
punity, take such things as tea and coffee, |
whisky, beer, tobacco, etc. All these Im
purities are passed through the liver be
fore they get Into the general circulation.
If they should go straight to the brain the
drinker would all dead shortly after tak
ing his glass of whisky.
When the liver is plump and healthy,
fuli of glycogen made from the bloofl. it
has a wonderful faculty of destroying poi
sons; but a starved liver cannot do this.
That Is why a glass of whisky taken be
fore breakfast does a man twice as much
harm as If taken after breakfast.
A dose of medicine taken on an empty
stomach is much more powerful In its ef
fects than a similar dose taken when the
stomach Is full, for the rearon that a full
stomach furnishes the liver with material
which It makes use of to tight poisons.

American Ball Has Helped Scores, but
Game Depends on the Player.
From the New York Sun.
Age turns always with fond recollection
to the achievements of youthful days In
sport, and seen through the vista of van
ished years the prowess of long ago may
often assume a fictitious prominence. Even
In golf, which affords like angling, so many
opportunities for retrospection and philo
sophic reflections, there Is a tendency to
magnify old records and achievements* in
the game. Here and abroad there are still
sighs for "Toung Tom" and the solid gutta
ball A recent instance Is the remark by
John L. IjOw of St. Andrews in an article
on the beginning of golf that "the rubber
cored ball lias greatly deteriorated golf,
both from a scientific and athletic stand
point.'' Mr. Low is yet on the sunny side
of forty and a pinnacle in amateur golf,
although, alack, never the amateur cham
pion. His praise of the past is not the
mouthing of a sere veteran, although it
re-eclioes a frequent plaint.
Unquestionably the American ball has
helped the scores, but there Is more bitter
ness than truth in the sneer that the game
is less scientific. As to the value of muscle
on the links, brawji without brain has never
won enduring fame in golf. The best men
In the last day* of the solid ball are ?till
paramount with the new ball. James Robb.
who last week won the British amateur
championship, was in the reign of the solid
ball runuer up in 1*97. a semi-finalist In
lfjOS, and runner up In 19u0. Will Mr. L*>w
asset t that Mr. Robb's golf Is less scien
tific now than of yore?
At Hoylake, where Mr. Robb won. and
at nearly all the links abroad and in this
I country, the superior carrying power of the
new ball has been offset by a lengthening
out of holes and by a sprinkling in, as salt
Is showered from a caster, of innumerable
traps to punish wild direction.
At our St. Andrews alone the traps have
not been put in to any appreciable number
and the distance has not been changed.
In at the open tournament, playing
the solid ball, John Reld, Jr.. made the
cighteen-hole record of 81 and A. Dewltt
Cochrane the thlrty-?lx-hole record of 83.
82?107. In the Metropolitan Golf Associa
tion championship there last week in suc
cessive rounds Jerome D. Travers twice
equaled par for the course, with 72. 72?144.
He had a 72 on another occasion, and Wal
ter J. Travis also equaled this new elghteen
hole record. The thirty-six-hole record, It
is safe to say, will hardly be surpassed in
tuccessive rounds. Mr. Travers well de
served to gain his title. For eight rounds
his average was 74*. Only a captious critic
would term such golf unscientific.
