Its large equipment of skillful sur
geons, doctors and trained nurses.

hospitals, and their staffs, as an

John Ficrpont Morgan.
J. Plerpont Morgan was the eolo-
sus ot Amorlcan finance and a domw
nant world factor In business,, yet
his death hardly disturbs. th& condU
tlons ho is said to have so largely
controlled during his life. His end
had boon, oxpectod and tho possible,
effects, discounted, Perhap this
may all leave rdom for still greater
tribute to his consummate fceniua
as a builder of commerce nnd a
monarch of finance Mr. Morgan
stands thus far supremo In tho
financial and industrial history ot
his country, and probably will do
stand for some years to come;
Ono of Mr. Morgan's private phy
sicians is quoted as attributing his
death to an emotional collapse
caused by his appearance beforo the
congressional committee investigat
ing tho allegod money trust. If , cor
rect, this tends to reflect a now light
upon Mr. Morgan's temporament In
tho gigantic affairs ho directed, he
was novor publicly known for his
emotion. In fact, if ho becamo emo
tional at -this investigation he con
coaled tho fact with superb skill.
Mr. Morgan "was noarly 76 years old,
nnd had been failing in health fori
fiomo time, so that his death 1b not
very remarkable and soems perfectly
natural without attempting to ox-
plain It from unusual causes.

who thought Davis talked more or
leas' .through his. hat, never, quite ac
cepted bis dramatic explanation of
tho shooting. Davis ardently sup
ported McKnloy In 1896 and drew
the appointment ot assistant secre
tary of tha Interior, but he fell out
with tho administration because. It

How I Pay
For All My Clothes
For several years I have kept house for my
brother and have been dependent upon him
for nearly everything. He is very generous
to me, but I am such an expense to him in
oher ways, that I always hated to ask him
for money for my clothes. It has been a big
problem to me to obtain the clothes I needed,
and would be still if I hadn't discovered a
very easy way to get them.
A year ago I started, to buy my teas, soaps, foodstuffs and other
hpusehold supplies from Larkln Co. and got for" my money not only the
sameamount of, mipplles I would get at the store, but a Pre'mulm of
equal value besides. Of .course 1 choose clothes as my Premium as they
were the things I needed most. .
The Larkin Premiums pleased me so much, and I liked their Products
so weir that I got some of my neighbors interated ln this .plan of buying
and formed a Larkln Oub-ofiTen: As Secretory of this Club I obtained
extra Premiums from the Larkln'Co. and.ln that way have been able to
keep myself well clothed without going to any extra expense at all.
Larkln Co. publish a big Catalog which tells all about their Products
and Premiums, and their method of dealing. I wish you would write for
this Catalogue DJ9,, aa I know It will Interest you and be Of great lasting
value to you. Just send a post! to Larkln Co., Peoria, 111., and they
will mall you one.
