Better be a hank-account man than
a no-account man. The way to
prosperity and happiness is paved
witn good intentions put into exe
cution. If you feel that you really
ought to be saving something out
of earnings for after life, don't let
the good impulse go unheeded. The
person who is soured on life is the
one who has neglected to put into
force the simple rules of success.
Start an account with the bank to
day. Pay your bills by cheek and
your money troubles will be over.

Charles Boedeker, of Murray, re
turned this morning on No. 19 from a
trip to Las Vegas, N. M., near which
city he purchased some land. Mr.
Boedeker departed for that point last
Tuesday week, and after arriving there
j made a very careful examination of the
property in that vicinity, finally making
his purchase. His land lies sixteen
miles east of Las Vegas and near the
Santa Fe Hot Springs Mr. Boedeker
is greatly pleased with the magnificent
climate of that country and the promis
ing outlook before it. He found that
almost all known crops could be raised,
the land being fertile and rich with an
abundance of rainfall. During the time
he was there it rained every day but
one, but the rainfall was of the right
kind. There was no violent down-pour,
but a steady fall which soaked into the
ground, doing it much good. He made
the trip over the Santa Fe road from
Kansas City, returning to this city by
the K. C. and Burlington roads.
A Fishing Party Have Nice Time
Surprise to Louis Ranard.
King Hill, Neb., Aug. 24, 1908.
A few days ago George Smith (our
worthy king snipe) and family con
cluded they would spend a day on the
river fishing and having a good time.
They loaded their buggy with good
things to.eat and went to Fred Patter
son's, where preparations had also been
made for a good time. The first thing
was something to eat, after which the
seine was loaded on the boat and both
families went fishing and wading in the
warm water. The river bottom is very
uneven and Mr. Smith got out to lift
the boat over a shallow place, when he
took one step too many and under he
went, all but his hat. After clawing
off about one hundred feet of the seine,
he kicked loose and got hold of the side
of the boat and got in (he said he got
wet) and said he did not find bottom.
After the first catch, with Mr. Smith
in the seine, the fish were small, but

Mr. Louis Ranard came in from a hard
day's work, and was getting ready to
spend a quiet evening with his family,
when he was surprised to see his friends
come in, and two at a time, until some
one asked him how old he was. Then
he remembered it was his birthday. The
evening was spent with games, plays
and pleasant conversation. A fine lunch
was served and all stayed until a late
hour. Those present were: Mr. Wes

and wife. Fred Patterson and family,
Ora and Winnie Hutchison, Leona Lam

It has been brought to the notice of
the well known manufacturer of Trin
er's American Elixer of Bitter Wine
that in some part3 of the country a
special tax is required for the sale of
this remedy. He at once notified the
government and received the decision
that Triner's American Elixer of Bitter
Wine and Triner's Abgelica Bitter
Tor.ic are both recognized as medicines
and can be sold without a special tax.
Our people have known this for years,
because in maladies of the digestive
organs these remedies always give the
j best satisfaction. The factory of Mr.
Jo?. Triner is a model of cleanliness,
and the herbs and wine used in the
manufacture of his specialties are of
the best possible quality. Use Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine in all
cases of loss of appetite and of bodily
strength. All drug stores. Jus. Triner,

A. O. BROWN & CO., BIG BROKER
AGE FIRM, GOES TO WALL.
LIABILITIES VERY LARGE
May Be Over $1,000,000 Stock Market
Made Nervous by Result of Last
New York, Aug. 26. The failure of
the big brokerage firm of A. O. Iirown
& Co., for a sum popularly estimated
as running well above $1,000,000, sent
a nervous thrill through the stock
market Tuesday. Coming as a climax
to the bewildering trading in last. Sat
urday's market, the suspension cre
ated an extraordinary degree of pub
lic interest, but was looked upon by
high stock exchange InJerests of
fering an early sortition of the tangle
growing out of the most remarkable
two hours' session the New York
stock exchange has known in many
While there was no question In Wall
street that the situation created by
the failure could easily be taken care
of, there was distinctly a feeling of
apprehension lest other firms might
unwittingly be drawn into the affair
as . a result of the extensive orders
scattered through commission houses
during Saturday's spectacular pro
ceedings. Enormous Trades Not Settled.
The transactions of A. O. Brown &
Co., covered nearly 75 per cent, of the
trading in the sensational week-end
session of the stock market and it was
stated officially by a member of the
firm that delivery had been made on
only 277,000 of the more than 700,000
shares handled. How many of the
outstanding shares represent the deal
ings ef customers and how many were
carried on the firm's account it was
impossible to learn.
The afternoon was filled with ru
mors as to various outside sources
that may have been responsible for
the course of the firm in Saturday'8
market, when the total sales record
ed on the floor of the exchange for
the two hours of trading amounted to
more than 1,100,000 shares, as against
one-third of a million during the full
.five-hour session of Monday, but most
of these were dissipated. Mr. Bu
chanan, a membej of the firm, an
nounced positively that the firm had
had no relations whatever with Thom
as V. Lawscn.
Was a Very Large Firm.
A. O. Brown & Co. were members of
the New York stock exchange, New
York cotton exchange, Chicago stock
exchange. Chicago Board of trade and
the Cleveland stock exchange. They
bad branch houses in Chicago, Cleve
land. Buffalo. Erie, Pa., and. Toronto.
In this city they maintained expensive
branch offices in four of the fashion
able hotels and at two uptown ad
dresses. Their principal office was
at 30 Broad street, but a few doors
from the stock exchange building.
Within the past few months the firm
had spent $75,000 in refurnishing Its
Broad street home.
The membership of the firm In
cluded Albert O. Brown, Lewis Ginter
Young, G. Lee Stout, Edward F. Bu
chanan. Samuel C. Brown and W.
Rhea Whitman. Private wires were
maintained to all principal cities.
The extensive trading of the firm,

It Is believed, was confined largely
to New York, despite 'ie fact that th
house had made a specialty of western
business. Although orRanlzed only In
the latter part of 1902, the firm had
come to take a prominent part la
trading on the stock exchange floor.
John W. Rhoads, cashier of the firm,
was named as assignee, with D. W.
Noel as counsel.
Creditors Force Failure.
Whfn the failure was announce'! i
member of the firm said that Its af
fairs were In a badly tangled condi
tion as the result of Saturday's trad
Ing and that it was thought host to
make an assignment at onro. It H
understood that brokerage firms who
were awaiting the delivery of stoc!
from A. O. Brown & Co., became Im
patient along toward noon and sent
word that they would allow but a few
more hours of grace. All attempts
to secure further d"lay were futile
and the suspension followed.
It was also said that the bunk
which carried the accounts of the
house declined Tuesday, because of
the unsettled condition In the affairs
cf the firm following Saturday's Kpec
tacular business, to further certify
any of its checks.
SCORES CHURCH; KILLS SELF.
Fcrmer Presbyterian Pastor Commits
Suicide in New York.
New York, Aug. 26. Ill, half blind,
criticising the church on the score of
untruthfulness and insincerity and de
claring that he could not worship
"America's trinity success, pleasure
and gold," Rev. Albert H. Trick shot
and killed himself in a room In Mills
hotel Tuesday. He was once pastor of
a Presbyterian church In Chicago, and
later had a charge at Saratoga, N. Y.,
but had no regular pastorate for sev
eral years, obtaining an insecure live
lihood as an Insurance agent.
In a remarkable letter, which he
left to Charles N. Dowd of this city,
who had befriended him, the former
pastor declared that he was lonely
even in the church when he attempt
ed to "square his soul by the teach
ings of Jesus," and asserted that the
modern church more nearly follows
the example of Robert Ingersoll than
those of Jesus.
