Warr holding; patent notes to the amount of $40, O00 have decided' to tile these notes as claims in bankruptcy to participate in the- dividend recently ordered. The prosiH'cts now are that a settlement of 10 cents on the dollar is the most that the creditors will be able to se cure. The filing of these notes is said to indicate the aband-onment by the holders of hope of holding the building- and loan association liable for them, an;! their desire to realize as much as possible from the claims. All the; holders of patent notes have not taken this action, for there are many who propose to fight to the last ditch on the score of the liability of the association. With some $40,000 in notes transferred, to the bankruptcy, there is still outstanding- something like $G0,000 in notes of similar form. When Ton Have a Cold.

Both phones ae S4ao ILamniidlry Read the new and revised price list for family washing at the American Laundry. Some of the best families in the city are taking advantage of this as the price is no more than what the coal, soap and starch will cost, not considering the usual slush and steam on wash days Good Morning Mam : Say! Arc you the man that runs the American Laundry ? Yes mam. My name is Mrs. Hunt. Where do you live Mrs Hunt? I live on street, and the reason I asked you was I heard you were doing the ironing down there Free of Charge. Yes, Mrs. Hunt we are. You must do some for me then. You know I am always hunting for the best of everything. Well I am glad I met you Mrs. Hunt, as we do the best and cheapest work of any Laundry in the west. I have so much of it though that I hate to ask you to do it all Free of Charge. You need not be in any way delicate in sending all you have. The more the merrier, Mrs. Hunt. All right. I will wasli them tomorrow and send the day after. But you. must tell them to be careful not to tear them, as I have had those sheets and table covers since I got married and you could not get any thing like them nowdays. How long are you married, Mrs. Hunt? It will be 34 years this coming Spring. I see, Mrs. Hunt, the like of them is pretty scarce, and they need careful handling. Now, Mrs. Hunt I hope you don't do as Mrs. Finger did last week. What is that? Well, she sent us 5 dozen sheets, 3 dozen table covers, 2 dozen towels, 7 dozen napkins, and I don't know how many lace curtains and bed spreads, and she was so awful kind to us that she washed them all herself and telephoned to us at 1 o'clock in the forenoon to come after them at once as she wanted them back at 3 o'clock that afternoon. To be sure to mark oh the list Free of Cha.rg. as she did not want to have any words with that driver. Where does Mrs. Finger live? She keeps a boarding house and restaurant on street. And didn't you iron them for her? Wcll,we like work all right enough, Mrs. Hunt, and we like a little glory too; but we thought this was a little too much of both to keep time with our appetite. Well then what must I do to get my Hat work ironed Free of Charge? Send everything you want in the wash same as it you were doing it jourself. Dresses, Aprons, Shirts, underwear your flat work included all washed nice and clean, rough dry for 5 cents per pound, starched and all. Now comes your tree ironing- No matter how much of it. Ifc will be nicely roned and folded for the same price. Or in other words, we only charge for the washing of it. Oh! Now I see. You charge for the. washing of the flat work, but vou iron it FliKK OF CJIAKOFV Now, 1 see you understand it-Mrs. Hunt. Hut supposing I want it done by the piece according to jour rough-dry price list. Can I have it? Certainly. I will print that rough dry price lit here for your in spection, and you can take your choice by the piece i r by the pound. Your flat work will be ironed in either case Fit KM OF CHAKCJ K. We have both telephones and three wagons, and we promise yon that one or the other will be at your house one hour after you telephone us. Now I understand it better. You know I told' you in the begin ning that I hnted to ask you to do it FKKK OF CHAbM;!:. That- is cheap enough. I would not do like Mrs. Finger, anyhow. Send one of your wagons around in the morning, as I will not have any more w ashing done in the house while I can get it done that cheap. And I will tell my sister .Tane and my sister Peggie and all my friends about it, too. v. Thank you. Mrs. Hunt. Hut you mu.-t fell them not to s-end the flat work alone for those prices, but end all they have of it. I don't care how much with the family wash and not have any bundles less than cents worth.
