The Globe Buys Out Max Schnlz
Remarkable Bargains to Follow.
The Globe Shoe and Clothing Company at
Seventh street and Franklin avenue bought
out the stock ot the Max Schulz Company,
their rival across the way. yesterday after
noon, the third anniversary of the day on
which they bought out tho Fair, which oc
cupied tho same builalng. The purchased
stock of the Schulz Company is valued at
The negotiations for the sale had been
In progress for nearly a week, under the
personal direction ot Mr. Maurice Lan
dauer, president of the Globe. Tho trans
fer was made 'yesterday, and to-day the
store of Max Schulz on the southwest cor
ner of Seventh and Franklin avenue Is
open to customers. The inventory of the
stock 1. under way, and as soon as this
is taken the goods will be removed across
to tho Globe store and sold from its coun
ters at bargain prices. -Mr. Landauer said
yesterday evening that he had succeeded In
getting the Schulz stock at a price aston
ishingly reasonable, and that he proposed
to put it on the retail market at propor
tionately low figures.
The two stores had long been rivals, sit
uated as they were on the opposite weit
corners of Seventh street, with Franklin
avenue between them. It has been the
policy of the Globe to buy out Its rivals
and other stores In general. There is even
now a sale of that sort going on over its
counters. Last year the same firm bought
out the stock of the Kohn Haberdashery at
Sixth and Washington avenue. So it was
in line with Its former record for the Globe
to buy out the store of Max Schulz. which
was in its own neighborhood, and doing
a business similar to its own. It has
been by Just such progressive methods that
the Globe has grown from Its humble be
ginning in 1879. with but small capital, tin
til In 1893 It built tho large six-story bulld
lnir which It now occupies.
The purchase yesterday was the culmina
tion of a tong-studled desire on the part
Of Mr. Lanosaer to become possessed of the
largest store of this class In St. Louis. Tha
fame which will come to his store through
the remarkable bargains soon to be an
nounced, he hopes will complete the work
ot establishing the Globe In the hearts of
St. Loulsans as the greatest year-round
home of low prices and high values In the

Jacob Troll. Chief Stretcher Carrier at

terday of being claimed as a. husband by a
former patient of tho observation ward of
The;lady. who was a complete stranger
to Troll, clasped him about the neck and
wept ears of Joy. Troll had no little
trouble In disentangling himself, and still
more trouble In explaining to 'other at
taches of the hospital that, despite appear
ances, ho was Indeed, no benedict. But
with all his explanation he could not do
away with the ridiculous aspect of the af
fair, and Troll Is now the subject of num
berless Jokes about his "wife."
About 2 o'clock in the afternoon a medi
cal stident who had come In by the Chest
nut street gate to the hospital conveyed tho
information to the occupants of the reception-room
of the Institution, that a lady
wished to see Troll.
In years past Jake was something of a
beauty, but now he is both fleshy and se
date, and his feminine acquaintance can
be numbered on the niigers of one hand.
So when the news reached him that a lady
wanted him his mature heart thumped
fiercely in his manly breast. But he
controlled his embarrassment and advanced
gallantly to the side gate.
Here was standing a tall young woman,
clad In a dark, tlght-flttlng drees and
wearing a large hat with trailing ostrich
From an aesthetic point of view Troll
was delighted. No sooner had tho tlslon
burst upon him than an expansive smile
was writ on his countenance.
Even more pleasing was Jake's ample
proportions to the lady. 'Without warning
she ran through the gate, grasped Troll's
herculean neck with both hands and com
menced to weep.
Jake was struck dumb. This was a
dilemma for which be was not prepared.
But the woman was not disturbed. She
hugged the tighter, exclaiming the while:
