eettine some manufactories to locate
here so as to guarantee regular em
ployment for our population and for
many more who desire to locate here.
We need a flour mill, a canning fac
tory, an ice plant and many other in
dustries. Why not make a united
effort to get one or all of the above

Lets organize a commercial club and

Ringling Bros.' famous World's
Greatest Shows will exhibit in Cha-
nnte Monday, Oct. 25. The event will
be an Interesting one, not only because
of the popularity of this wonderful
amusement institution, but also be
cause the present season marks a dis
tinct era in the growth of this biggest
of biff shows. Since last season the
paraphornalia of the show has been
entirely reconstructed, while the en
tire exhibition has been so vastly en
larged that it is now fully twice as
large as during the season of 1896.
There are twice as many elephants;
twice as many railroad cars; twice as
many people; twice as many perform
ers; twice as much seating capacity;
twice as many arenic spaces; twice as
much space on the huge hippodrome
course for theexclting racing contests,
and twice as many of the great and
distinctive features which have hith
erto given Ringling Bros.' famous cir
cus its superb individuality. It is
evident that such an enormous en
largement of an exhibition, already
vastly larger and better than its con
temporaries, must have entailed the
expenditure of a princly sum, and It is
not a surprise to learn that the actual
capital invested in Ringling Bros.'
World's Greatest Shows this season Is
over $3,700,000. This, moreover, com
prebends only a portion of the outlay,
for the daily cost of operating this
stupendous institution averages $7,400
an aggregate of over $1,200,000. The
most interpid riders; the most grace
allv athletic acrobats; the most start
ling mid-air evolutionists; the most
wondrously trained animales, embrac
ing 23 reasonendowed elephants a
happy family of wisest pachyderms,
ranging from the tiniest of baby ele
phants to the largest of living beasts;
the most beautiful animal in all crea
tion, a pure white elephant; the most
massively gorgeous dens and cages of
rare wild beasts, in countless num
bers and endless variety; and over all
the largest, the longest, the highest
canvas pavilions ever constructed;
absolutely waterproof, and affording
vast areas for the exhibition or the
zoologlc, ethnic, equine and gymnic
wonders of the great show.

We write our own papers and
office in Chanute, thus saving the expense of a drift every time
, you pay interest.
Your mortgages are never sold to eastern capitalists for a
speculation, but are held as an investment where you can secure
1 a release at any time.
Most important to the borrower. You can pay off your
loan at any interest payment in amounts of $ 100 or any multi
ple thereof, or the ENTIRE loan if you desire, without bonus.
We examine our loans and write the mortgages as soon as
the title is complete. Thus saving your interest from the time
your papers are written until your abstract is completed. Don't
' take competitors' word for our way of doing business, but come
and see us. We defy competitors, and please remember that
! we are the only company that write our own paper in Neosho,
Wilson and Allen counties while our competitors require from
30 to 60 days to close a loan.
