BubBcribs for The Bulletin. JETTING in front, and keeping there that's the way Marathon races are won It's the way anything else in this world is won; and no man who wants to win can afford to neglect anything great or small which may contribute to his being in front. You want to win success in your undertakings, whatever they may be; and one of the things which every man needs and ought to be sure of, is good clothes; they help your appearance, add to your effectiveness, make you feel more successful; and there's a lot in the way a man feels who is trying to win. Hart Schaffner r Marx are in front among all the clothes-makers of the world; they got there by making clothes right; by correct style, by perfect and thorough tailoring, by using none but all-wool fabrics , when so many makers think part cotton is good enough for you. We sell these clothes because we believe they're that kind of clothes; because we want to keep in front. They're the sort of clothes that are a benefit and a profit to everybody concerned; to you who wear them most of all. If you're in front and want to stay there; or if you want to get there, here are the clothes for it. Thi Store is the Home of Hart Schaffner 6- Marx Clothes. We have the largest line of 50 cent Easter Neckwear in the city. FLACK MAY On Commercial Avenue at Eighth Street, VALTER B. WARDER FOR CITY ATTORNEY.

Nothing has rcn heard of it lately. It ee .nis t have culminated in tilenee with the picturing and publication cf Eraser's plan. This l;m seemed to be fca.-d bio, and to Ve accepted with favor by people rail v; now why. seeming ly so dead? Mr. Fraser ,doubtlc:s, thinks he did his part and is wa'.U'.ig for others to bring the matter up. He probably thinks by this time, that ' those who volunteer valuable ser vices for the public good obtain lit tle thanks for same. But it is nujie likely, if a city hall Is ever built, Mr Eraser's plan will be made available for many suggestions It contain::, if not wholly. lie is entitled to the credit cf having formulated the only clear plan presou'ed covering the project as a whole. It provided loca lion, a good design for t,ho buildirg and a ;t:ifo sensible plan for financing the necessary outlay. If the city ha'l projo t rests for a half d c;ne w here it is, it will not be thr first public improvement project thus suspended, or abandoned crtirely. Capt. Oliver: In the line f rail road construction v.o see many such delays or abandonments. A long pe riod of years back the Southern Illi-1 nois' railway was projected, the light ! r.f way secured on really the li ie ncv occupied by th Cairo and Vin eennes branch of the Big Four road. and much of the roadbed was built Then it came to a halt and finally was abandoned entirely. Years pf terwards, when the Cairo and Via cennes rool was built. I believe this company utilized a part of the road bed of the Illinois Southern. A dozen or mere railroads have been char lorod in the last forty years with Cai ro as one terminal that, have net reached here. What . has become of the road that was a certainty' from here to Bristol, Tenn.. said to be the enttrprise of the I & N. and a link that was to make a trunk lino fro?i Cairo to Norfolk? Where Is the Cai ro and Paducah electric, that, accord ing to pnsit.iiw statements from the latter city, should have been com pleted some years back? ifr. Payson: I am more interested in seeing some tangible plan adopted for paying off' the city's floating In debtedness and providing revenue enough to keep this municipality within its income, than I am In city halls or railroads. The city courici has Itoen prodded to the limii 10 do something to relieve the treasury yet that body remains inert. Noth ing Is brought forth that promises re lief. During the last four years th council has, to a large extent, de ponded upon the mayor to provide plans for everything done, and ha; generally accepted his plans. Proh ably it is waiting for his leadership in the matter of getting out of the financial dilemma. If so, His Honor should act quickly, present a plan or declaro the problem" too much for him. I concur with Col. Smith of the Cairo Bank, that it is important to find out what the indebtedness Is. A start in correct book-keeping shodl I be made by the city, so that it will be in the power of the comptroller to turn to his books at any time and tell within a few minutes what tho city owes. ,
