MATINEES XEXT YEAR.
Secretary \V. O. Warthen. of the Horse
£bo\v Association, stated yesterday that
?hc association would probably vary their
programme next season by' reduefnt: the
number of events each night and substi
tuting one or Uvo matinee performances.
The proceeds from the show this year
r.-ere snflicieru. to 'pay the guaranteed" per
zrjr.t. on preferred stock, and pay. for tho
building, which, apart from the money
•übscribed by the street car company,
cost $15iOOQ. An examination of the rail
road coupons show that thero were over
E.CO3 visitors to the horse show during the
week in October. This does not include .!
;he. many visitors who attended the show
from neighboring points, who did not pur
ahase tho special tickets sold by the vari
aus railrcaos.

WALK ON DKY LAND NOW.
■Visitors to tho Bostock show were
. srrcatly inconvenienced by the many pools
of muddy wau-r alongside the car tracks
on the, opening: night: Manager Huff of
the Passenger and Power Company, has
remedied the trouble by filling in the wet
spots with sand ;md gravel so that
further inconvenience in this direction
tviii be avoided.
The lighting facilities of the arena have
been improved, the. operations of the vari
ous: switch boards having been fully ex
plained to the man in charge. There are
now 15 arc jamps and 700 incandescent !
bulbs besides a cluster of. lights over the

Many people suffer from dyspepsia and

have a grood keen appetite, do not have
the inclination and energy for physical
or mental work they once had. but at the
same time do not feel any particular
pain or distress the .stomach. Yet
all this is the result of poor digestion.

cal discovery does. It is called Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and is a specific for
dyspepsia and indigestion. It cures be
cause it thoroughly digests all whole
some food taken into the stomach, wheth
er the stomach Is in pood working- order
or not.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, by digesting
the food, instead of making the worn out
stomach do all the work, gives it a much
needed rest and a cure of dyspepsia 3n
the natural result.
"When you are nervous, run down, and
sleepless, don't make the common mis
take of supposing your nervous system
needs treatment and fill your stomach
with powerful nerve tonics which make

i'our nerves are all right, but they are
starved, they want food.
Nourish them with wholesome, every

medicine:
But the nerves will not be nourished
from a weak, abused stomach, but when
the digestion has been mad*; perfect by

THOUSANDS OUT YESTERDAY:
Season for Activity Ajuonp Shop
fiiHcrs, FctV of "Whom Are Detect
cil—S'oi' Lack of Articles Suitable
for Men «ncl Women- Tilings That
CntcU the Eye.
The delightful weather - yesterday
brought out thousand of. shoppers to -the
stores on. Broad street. All during the
day, especially in the afterrio'on, the
thoroughfare was crowded 'with
peole busily engaged in selects
ing articles for Christmas . pre
sents. Merchants on Broad street say
that the volume- of business :■■ this sea r
son Is greater .than that of last year,
which was unusually good. '"The ; only
thing wo dread i.s rainy weather," said
one merchant. "Two or three, days of
very inclement weather seriously, crip
ples our sales, and we cannot make up
for the lost opportunity, on clear days.
The people are buying a higher class of
goods than, were purchased last f Christ
mas season." : •.:•'
The department stores were thronged
from morning until the ..closing" hour.
Especially was the true of those shops
where articles ranging in .prices from 5 to
10 cents are sold. This is. the season for
activity among the shoplifters. "I hate
■to -think of the things that are going out
of this store that are not paid for," said
one merchant,, "but despite 'thej watchful
ness of our men, it is impossible to de
tect" but few cases where goods * arc
taken from the counters by shoplifters."
' There seems to be a regular ;. brother-;
hood or sisterhood of shoplifters who
operate during the week just before
Christmas. They do not confine them
selves to taking goods from the stores;
The most fruitful source" of revenue is
derived from pocketbooks that " are~ care
lessly placed on the counters or upon
the seats running alongside the counters.
A lady in shopping will frequently put
her pocketbook down, and in her inter
est in examining goeds will wander sev
eral, yards away from the original spot,
and on seeking her money will find that
some theif has picked it up, and lost
himself in the 'surging crowd. '-
AN INCIDENT OF THE WEEK.
Only this week two young fellows en
tered a. large department store on Broad
street, and swiped a pair of gloves. They
had been in' the store on several occas
ions before, and their action?? attracted
suspicion. They were watched from
time to time, and on their last trip, they
bagged the gloves. One of the employees
of the store shadowed them to one of the
side streets, where they pulled the gloves
out, and tried them on. ..Each of the
young- fellows r tri«v| on a glove for a fit.
While experimenting. the employee
tackled them both. One of the shoplif
ters struck at him, and the other, in get
ting away dropped his hat. It was pick
ed up by the employee. The owner of the
hat took to his heels, pursued by the em
ployee. He was overtaken at Seventh
and Franklin streets, and compelled to
return to the store. The other thief's
name was .secured. The captured youth
was sent up to the reformatory for a
good long term. _.
PURLOINED VIOLET WATER.
The shoplifters , do not draw the line
on small things. One hovered around
th'j perfumery stand in one of the large
department store just to get a bottle of
violet water that might have been pur
chased for a trifling sum. Some pick out
more valuable objects, but in these cases
the danger of detection is great, and the I
eagle eye of the shoplifter : is more fre- I
quently turned to the tempting pocket
books that arc lying- around. . They can
more easily be disposed of, and are less
liable to identification.
THE CALENDAR RAGE.
In the book stores, the great rush is
for calendars. The Christmas card, has
seen its best day, and the Christy" and I
Gibson effects in the line of calendars
have supplanted them. There is a large
demand for leather goods, the burnt
leather variety being very popular. Pop
ular novels have been in demand con- |
tinually. They are found in abundance i
in the department stores where they aro'f
a. necessary adjunct to the sales depart- j
merit. In the housefurnishirig- stores, j
chafing-dishes are selling like hot cakes. |
One large dealer said yesterday, "people
arp looking after their appetites this
year certainy. for we have had an un
precedented sale of chafing dishes." The
new ornament vacs in gilt and metl,
colored in imitation of rare procelain, are
very popular. They are thoroughly ar
tistic and very reasonable in price. Por
celain tiles in blue margins of fancy de- .!
sign with central panels depicting Ger- j
man scenes, the whole encased in frames i
of black stained oak. make nice decora
tions for dining-rooms or hallways.
Nothing has taken the place of cut
glass articles Tor the buffet and. dining
tf.ble.- The varieties this- year are more
artistic than ever before.
THESE FOR THE MEN.
. The haberdashers present everything
attractive in the line of appropriate gifts i
for men. Bath robes of every conceiva- |
/ble figure and color, smoking- jackets of
silk and plaid goods! and the Inevitable
scarf are displayed in abundance. Of
course, umbrellas will be sold .by the i
thousands. They are always au fait for
a gift, and being recognized by some un
written . code as public property, they
freely circulate among; people whenever
the weather demands and the chance oc
curs. There . are fancy silk suspenders
for the unwary, but generous woman
who wishes to specially favor some man.
Fownes' and Perrin's gloves are always
acceptable gifts for a man, unless you
want to spend 510 for a nice smoking
jacket. These articles are displayed in
unlimited quantities, with many inno
vations in design and color. Handker
chiefs, another wandering article in a
man's wardrobe; are very servicable,"'
but don't get the kind with initials on
them, for it's embrrassing when you hap- 1
pen to get the other fellow's handker
chief. ■".. : ..
THERE'S NO END.
As . for articles suitable for a. woman,
there's no end of them shown in the
windows of the big shops on 'Broad
street. A father can make a daughter ,
happy with one of those feather boas
or some recherche affiair in the way ■
of an opera cloak. The boas in- black •
and white. . exquisitely delicate things '
that may be warm, and certainly are -i
becoming, adorn the show windows. As ."j
to what a man can give to a girl whom <
he loves, opinion is divided. Of course, I !
there's a reasonable line to bo drawn in I
the way of articles of dress. I 'surlily we (
stock their dressers with articles' of sil- (
verware." They look expensive; -are fre-^ \
quently decorative,, and some 'times are
useful. •■■-: Conceits in stationery are more' \
.varied, this year than usual.". They are
very eligible as gifts.' Articles In leather \
suitable for decorative or useful pur
poses can be found in greater variety' ".
than ever, before. .If you want to go \
stronger., the. jewelry shops can -furnish'
you with stuff that will almost put you
on.youruppers until spring comes. ,
TRINKETS PLEASE THEM. : "
Don't ever give a girl any kind of book. ]
It makes them sore. to open the package. \
Fancy stick pins' of the real metal !
please, women. They can be carried .
around arid shown,' and it's some pleas- '.
we for .a girl to point to one and tell t
who gave it to her. They. are the min
ute evidence of aftection, ; and come in
handy.with those mysterious shirt waists
and fictitious [collars whose begining; and
end like that world; is unknown. ;. Women rj
like to . swing and dangle things. "Deli

don't.viant other things, but you are not
•supposed to know what they are. Only
g'jnius-can afford to be unconventional.
• FOR MAN WITH THE PIPE.
• The cigar stores are filled with articles
suitable, for smokers. Tobacco jars will
do* very well for tho fellow- who smokes
in a ;imokin.tr jacket. ; A real briarwcod
pipe or a fancy match-holder of unique
design .is ornamental. The fellow will
generally search his vest pocket for the
match,' however. Don't- undertake to buy
any tobacco in any form. The comic pa
pers are filled with jokes- at woman's ex
pense about this time .of year, ' and you
niajvunintentionally inflict a severe hard
ship on your best friend" with a tobacco
fe'ift.
- • IN FURNITURE.
Among the expensive articles shown in
the shop windows are. articles of furni-_
ture.' Handsome, effects" in burnt oak."
.Turdiniere; stands of teawood and rook
wood running up into the big figures, and
oriental designs for tobacco stands. can
bo had for a snug sum. , The inevitable
jardiniere and . the comfortable morris
chair are displayed for. those who* wish
to buy; something for the comfort. ahd ;
decoration of: home.
In the -matter of. toys for children.:
there's ho end of them.. The very ex
pensive kind of French design are not
shown here, save in the case of dolls,
but there are enough of riioderate cost
to gladden the hearvs" of. the little . ones,
and they can , be easily broken so that
the inside, that /mysterious.- part, of a
toy to a child, can be Investigated.
