Would you consider it good business to
overlook a proposition where you ran eavt
from 10 to 50 in your purchases of FUR
NITURE, RUGS AND DRAPERIES? This
is what vie can save for you. All our stock
at our present location must le closed out
within the next few weeks, as we have bought
an entire new stock for our new store. It is
imperative that this stock must go no mat
ter what the loss may lie. There is still thou
sands of dollars worth of CARPETS, FUR

Incident to the election.
1-abor leaders declare that the mirnose
of holding these preliminary elections is
an educational one, the object being to
euueate labor to discriminate and support
those candidates In sympathy with organ
An interesting feature of an otherwise
featureless campaign is the hue and cry
being raised by the democrats on the so
called home rule proposition. Nearly every
democratic candidate has some reference
to home rule on his advertising cards,
home rule meetings are twins ,n-nrt
and a tempest Is being raised in a teapot
Dy me ueniocrats over the self-imposed
Issue of so-called home rule. The fact of
the matter Is the home rule question is
not an Issue of the prevent campaign and
the Intelligent voters know that. The
present home rule noise is but an echo
of the "liberal policy" advocated by the
democrats last spring. As a matter of
fact the republican candidates are as much
In favor of home rule as their opponents.
Chairman Donohoe and Secretary Wood
land at republican headquarters have tha
work of registration well In hand. Thev

that all must register and that previous

member of the exchange to buy their coal

agreement with the exchange this company
was going out of business and waa selling
Its stock to the members of the exchange.
The letter closes with the significant state
ment that with the closing out of this
company harmony would once more be re
stored among the coal dealers.
Mr. Wills said he knew nothing of the
letter, as it was written before he became
secretary. He said as far as he knew the

Wedneaday morning when the snal aalo
was opened, A line of over fifteen people
was In waiting for Manager Glllan to open
the doors and from that on all during the
morning hours a continuous stream of
people was seeking seats. Last year the
ticket sale was opened a week In advance
of the show, but this year the box office
was not ' opened until Wednesday of the
week before the show. Demands for boxes
were unprecedented and many who were
shut out from securing boxes did the next
best' thing w hlch was to get a seat down
stairs. Because of the great demand for
seats the management has decided to
grant the promenade privelege to those oc
cupying. seats In the first three rows in the
balcony. Although the price for these
balcony seats Is less than for seats down
stairs, still these are splendid seats from
which to view the show.
Stalls Are Completed. -
Superintendent Austin has the stalls Jn
the basement all completed, making ninety
six single stalls and thirty box stalls, but

horse show and whose horses were burned
at Blair as he was enroute home from
the Omaha show, haa sent in his entries.
On the list Is Thornton Star, the pride of
Missouri. This horse Is no novice In the
show ring, but several years ago won
everything In sight In the saddle classes.
For the lsst two yeers he has been
slightly out of form and has not won, but

he will have charge of the arena and give

from the Judges.
Colonel Sapp and his big megaphone will
be missing from the Horse show this year
and Instead a more subdued score board
will be used on which the numbers of the
winners will be placed. The Auditorium
being circular with people on all sides, an

rections and these will be done away with.
Extraordinary care Is given some of the-e

The Kansas City Times is speaking of the
attention given to one of the horses after
it left the arena said:
A number of hostlers stood watching
one of Crowe Murray's horses at Its
toilet. The groom took one bottle and
bathed the animal's feet. Another was
used In sleeking part of Its coat. The
mane and tall were carefully brutihed.
Chan white bandages were wrapped about
Its legs. Its "bath rolW' was then thrown
over it, and it was put In a bed of straw.

Malta-Vita is so good to eat
. because it is made from the
finest whole white wheat, thoroughly cooked
and matured, then mixed with pure, rich
barley malt extract and rolled into little wafer flakes
and baked crisp and brown. It is the most healthful
food in the world for the same reason. The malt extract turns
the starch of the wheat into maltose, or malt sugar. Maltose is
most easily digested and physicians recommend it because it is
so strengthening. Malta-Vita is rich Jn maltose. Get some
