Houston had no bank failures and its

was reported to-day that a large sum
of m oney had been offered the proprie

called 'no-to-bac," which is famous all
over the country for its wonderful
effect This offer, it is said was made
by parties who desire to take it off the
market and stop its sale, because of its
injury to the tobacco business. Mr. H
L. Kramer, general manager of the no
tobac business, was interviewed at his
office, 45 Randolph street, aud when
questioned, promptly said:
"No, sir. No-to-bac is not for B3le

for our business. Certainly notobac
affects the tobocco business. It will

Yes, sir. Tho majorit of our patients
