weather bureau says the great storm

raging on the Gulf will advance

northward, but will rapidly lose its

intensity after leaving the coast.

MOBILE, Ala., Sept. 30.—Railroad

and wire companies went to woit today

to establish early communication

with the Gulf coast cities hit last

night by a West Indian hurricane.

WASHINGTON. D. C., Sept. 30. —

The West Indian hurricane was centered

over the interior of Mississippi

this morning, but it. had greatly diminished

in force.

The storm, however, is not over, as

It maintains considerable intensity

and is causing general rains throughout

the south Atlantic and east gulf

states and Tennessee. During the

night It caused winds of hurricane

force on the middle gulf coast and

the weather bureau ordered a continuance

of storm warnings along the

gulf coast from Mobile to Cedar Keys,

Fla., and on the Atlantic coast from

Jacksonville to Wilmington, N. O.

Indications are that the storm Is

moving in a northeasterly direction

and that it will cause rains during the

next 36 hours everywhere east of the

Mississippi river except In the upper

lake region.

From New Orleans, which bore the

brunt of the storm, had come early

today only meager news by wireless.

Ten persons reported dead, 150 injured

and property loss put at more

than $1,000,000, was the storm's toll

there, a relayed radiogram said. The

message added that ample warning of

the storm's approach had prevented

damage to shipping.

French Market Hit.

A ferocious gale lifted the roofs

from many New Orleans buildings and

partly demolished the old French

market, one of the show places of

the city. At times the wind reached

a velocity of 130 miles an hour and

streets were filled with flying debris.

Residents crowded into hotels and

downtown office buildings for protection.

Little news has come in from other

points. One report said that Biloxi.

Gulfport and Pa^cagoula suffered

heavily.. Little damage was done in

Mobile. A relief train was to leave

here today for towns down the coast.

Wireless is Silent.

The navy wireless station at Arlington

has been unable to communicate

with the wireless station at the New

Orleans navy yard since 6 o'clock yesterday

Representatives of New York banks,

also on the day's calendar.

Must Solve Questions.

Here are some of the questions

of the general offensive movement on

the western front, the French have

captured an important defensive work

of the Germans south of Ripont, it

was officially announced by the war

offico today.

In the Champagne French troops

have gained a footing at various points

on the German second line of defense,

the official statement adds.

rhlch the committee in charge of

arrangements sought to solve at their

tonferenee today:

How much must an Individual

subscribe to become eligible for

admission to the syndicate which

will get the bonds at 00?

What terms shall be offered to

the man who wants to buy the

so-called baby bonds—tfiose In

denominations less than $1,000—

by installments? «

When shall the bonds be placed

on the market?

Indications were that the life of

the underwriting syndicate would not

extend beyond 60 or 90 days, and

that the bonds would be listed—probably

free of charge—on the New

York stock exchange very shortly. It

was also thought that the bonds

mifrht be offered for sale within 10

jiays. In advance of official announcement,

however, reports as to the

minimum amount to be subscribed by

individuals entering the syndicate and

the installment terms were pure surmise.

Arrange for Payments.

One report was that the minimum

amount would be fixed at |250,000;

another fixed the amount at $1,000,-

000. There was no confirmation of

either these reports nor of the report

that Installment subscribers would be

expected to pay one-fourth down and

the remaining three-fourths by January





With only one half week's work

to their credit, the Jurymen drawn

for the September term of circuit

court have returned to their respective

homes and will not return until

Monday morning at >9:80 o'clock.

Tomorrow Judge Welmer will occupy

himself with chancery matters

and Saturday morning he will hear

the customary batch of divorce


The temporary dismissal of the

Jurymen was necessitated because of

the Inability of Judge Welmer to

find any case that now Is ready for

trial. It had been expected that the

liquor cases would demand the attentions

of the court for more than

a week. When five respondents entered

pleas of guilty, the work listed

for the week was more than cut In

two. Yesterday the judge endeavored

to line up some matters for trial today

and tomorrow, but found It Impossible

to get attorneys, witnesses

and litigants of any case together.

Falling In his attempt to keep the

jury grinding, Judge Welmef last

evening excused all jurors not sitting

in the Stozocki case. The remainder

he dismissed this morning after the

case had been completed.

When African Force Appeared

Says French Survivor of War

(By Associated Press.)

PARIS, Sept. 30.—"It was by no

means easy work," said one of the

wounded at the Grand Palais hospital,

In describing the battle of

Champagne, Saturday. "Never have

we seen anything like the barbed wire

entanglements. Our shells plowed up

thousands of stakes but there was

an Innumerable number left which

we had to pull up under the enemy's

fire. The wire was so thick It was

extremely hard to cut. In many places

our attacking columns came against

chevaux de frise, behind which the

Germans lurked. We pelted them

with bombs as hard as we could and

the sappers who came behind us did

the rest.

"The machine guns which stormed

at us—that's why so many of us were

hit In the legs, were soon pu( oyt pf

up. They had gone so long without

a chance to fight on horseback that

they were keen to get Into It. It was

a fine dash and the Germans bolted

on all sides. What they left behind

in the way of material, arms, effects

and equipment was unimaginable.

Their flight turned Into a panic when

they saw our African contingents

after them. The Africans certainly

cut them up frightfully with the bayonet."

An officer with a bayonet wound In

one arm spoke enthusiastically of the

methodical and orderly manner in

which the French Infantry fought.

This Week Opons GrinneU Bros.' 12th Annual Sale of Summer

Resort Pianos and Player Pianos—Really

Remarkable Bargains Offered.

Grinnel Bros. Piano warerooms this week look like a large department

store during a Saturday crush; so great Is the demand for the Pianos and

Player-Pianos, which are offered for sale.

It Is a well known fact that the i)iano business of Grlnnell Bros. Is

growing every year with rapid strides, and that every year they rent more

Instruments to summer resorters throughout Michigan and Ontario. These

rental Instruments are returned to them in the fall and must be sold at

once to accommodate the new fall and winter stock. Though many of

these beautiful instruments have had scarcely any use during the summer

and are in every sense as good as new, yet every cent of rent that has been

received on them is deducted from their regular price. The result is some

of the rarest bargains ever offered the music loving public.

It is the rule that private owners consider that almost the original price

Is a reasonable sum to ask for their pianos which may have stood idle most

of the time in their homes. They argue that their value Is not Impaired owing

to their non-use. Imagine, then, buying a piano, only a few months

from the factory, at a reduction of $50, $75, etc. This Is made possible by

Grlnnell Bros, through the fact that some resorter has paid that sum in

rent during the past summer. And often the Instrument so reduced In

price has had practically no use, except for a comparatively few evenings


This is the reason underlying the great cut In prices of summer resort

pianos at Grlnnell Bros.

Summer resorters usually demand the newest and best pianos. They

do not want to use the- Instrument often- but. for their receptions. Informal

gatherings, dances, etc., they need thersweet tone and easy touch of the

best made instruments. This is the reason that so many of the high grade

Pianos are In Grlnnell Bros, sale stock this week. Such well known makes

as these are seen: STEINWAY, KNABE, GRINNELL BROS, (own make),



Grlnnell Bros., who have 24 stores and many more selling agencies

scattered through Michigan and Ontario, buy Pianos from the largest Piano

factories In the world In train load lots and naturally at the lowest prices

possible. Any other piano house, operating a single store, must buy a few

Instruments at a time, and. In consequence Is obliged to pay much more per

piano. Thus, a stated reduction at Grlnnell Bros., must mean a price of many

dollars less than an equal reduction from the regular price asked by any.

other music house.

To the large sale stock of Sumer Resort Pianos are added a number of

used, exchanged and sample Pianos that have been thoroughly overhauled

by factory experts and put in splendid condition. On these the reductions

are often as great as $150. $200, $225 and even more.

Think of buying a $400 Grlnnell Bros, (own make) Piano at $290; a

$500 Stelnway at $272; a $550 Knabe at $310; a $400 Vose at $265; a $350

Smith & Barnes at $227; a $500 Sohmer at $270; a $350 Behr Bros, at $155;

a $300 Clough & Warren at$162; others at $110, $128, etc., etc.

Every Piano on the sales floor is plainly marked with a red tag, giving

the regular price, the amount of rent received and the special sale price.

There 1^ no room for doubt or argument; the figures are plainly given.

Next in importance to the price of ^ Piano; and often of even more importance

to the prospective buyer, is the question of terms. A family with

a stated income may not be able to make a large Initial payment but may be

able to make regular periodical payments quite easily. To meet the demand

Grlnnell Bros, have cut the payment terms to meet the requirements of every

possible buyer. Under the Grlnnell Easy Payment plan a very few dollars

places one of these splendid instruments in a muslc-lovlng home; the balance

can be met in small payments arranged to suit the buyer's convenience.

As a matter of fact, Grlnnell Bros, will not allow the question of terms to

deprive a home of a much desired Piano.

Then, just as Important, is the question of the buyer's ultimate satisfaction.

To Insure this, absolutely, Grlnnell Bros, offer a ( Year's Free Exchange

Trial with every instrument sold. This means that'the Piano which

does not give entire satisfaction can be exchanged any time within 12 months

for any other new Instrument in Grlnnell Bros.' stock; and every cent paid

will be credited on the new Piano purchased. Thus, you cannot lose a cent

on the transaction and you are certain to be perfectly satisfied. This plan

leaves you another of Grlnnell Bros.' enthusiastically satisfied patrons, of

whom there are thousands In Michigan and Ontario.

Hundreds of beautiful Pianos and Player-Pianos will be sold, and those

who buy will be glad that their attention was drawn to this great sales

event. Visit TODAY Grlnnell Bros, warerooms at 107 E. Main St.

Cartoon No. 22




The indicting fact that the administration at Washington

has dropped Nelson 0'Shaughnessy from the diplomatic corps

has not attracted the attention it deserves. It deserves attention

because it eloquently testifies to the unreasoning unfairness

which creeps into the government's relationship with its

faithful servants when u politics" become the predominating

factor in the consular service. It deserves attention because it

is an exhibit which clearly indicates the logical fruits of such a

diplomatic policy as the late Mr. Bryan inaugurated when he

Bent the now-deposed Sullivan—an ex-Tammany lawyer—to

Santo Domingo with instructions to find all the jobs possible

''for deserving Democrats. n

Nelson O'Shaughnessy served as charge d'affairs in Mexico

City under the most difficult circumstances and he proved

himself one of ablest and most courageous and most tactful

diplomats who has served under the American flag. When he

finally withdrew from his perilous post—amid the unanimous

acclaim of every foreign resident in the Mexican capital he

was praised by an unanimous American press as worthy of the

most striking recognition which Washington could bestow.

The 4 'recognition'' has come.

r »hat it has been "striking"

could not be denied. But that it has not been of the type

which O'Shaughnessy richly earned and which the country

wanted him to receive is beyond possibility of dispute. TVe

The president needs expert Mexican advisors—Heaven

knows.. He needs advisors who can speak from long experience

with the Mexican people. Instead of "dropping" such

men as Nelson O'Shaughnessy and Henry Lane Wilson, if he

were to call them to his consultation table he would be in less

tempestuous embarrassment and in less uncertain uneasiness

than he is as a result of his experiment with tyros and amateurs.

Archibald in a sea of trouble.

"Bloedsinning Yankees"—von Papen called us in his interrupted

reports to the Fatherland; and State Counsellor Polk

has sent the interpreters and translators a-scurrying to let us

know the worst.

If it is as bad as it sounds, von Papen must—well, there

Savings, not income, shows man's real worth. On this

basis the people of the United States occupy an unenviable

position in comparison with other nations. The financial

sharps have figured it out that with wealth untald and an anannual

income of thirty-five billion dollars, America ranks fifteenth

in the proportion of population carrying savings banks


And yet money is not the most important thing in life.

Wealth improperly used is more of a menace than poverty.

And it may be that in the very terms of which we today speak

of wealth is to be found the secret of the lack of frugality and

thrift. W speak with awe of the man worth hundreds of thou-

Bands of dollars of the millionaires, and the little dollars the

most of us feel down in our trousers pocket seems so infinitesimal

that they are scarcely worth while.

The nation needs to take another viewpoint. Value the

man for what he can EARN AND SAVE and not for what ho

tan ACCUMULATE through the efforts of others, or what he

may hame inherited from a frugal parent's self-denials

The very terms in which Americans speak of money, illustrates

our perverted view of wealth. The american speaks

uf wealth in terms of capital—a man is said to be worth $100,-

He went up to the clerk.

"You have two gentlemen

here," he said, "that arrived this

afternoon. One of them is named

Oratz, the other Hartmann. Are

they in?"

The clerk looked at his keyboard.

"Their key is not here," he

said. "I have not seen them descend.

I am quite positive they

are in their room. Shall I send

up and find out?"

"No." Duvall approached him

closely. "I am a detective, and

my companion here as well." He

indicated M. Lefevre. "He is, in

fact, the prefect of the police of

Paris. These men Gratz and

Hartmann we believe to be

desperate criminals. For the sake

of the reputation of your hotel,

monsieur, it would be better for

us to meet them in their rooms.

A scene of shioting here in your

front hall would not be to your


The clerk turned pale.

"Go up at once, gentlemen, by

all means," he gasped. ' "I myself

will show you the way."

He called one of the bell-boys

to guard the desk and sprang up

the old-fashioned stairs.

The room of the two men was

on the third floor. When the

party had ascended the two

flights the clerk paused upon the


landing and pointed to a door

in the front at the end of the hall.

"There, gentlemen," he said;

•No. 32."

Duvall went up to the door and

tried it. It was locked. He

rapped sharply, but received no


Again he rapped, with the same


"Have you a pass-key?" he

asked the clerk.

"In a moment, monsieur," cried

the latter, and disappeared.

He came back in a few moments

with a bunch of keys on a

large wire ring. With one of

these he carefully opened the


Duvall and the others stepped


The moment they crossed the

threshhold they voluntarily recoiled.

The clerk, who brought

up the rear, gave a cry of horror.

It was close to six o'clock. The

sun, however, was still some distance

above the horizon, and the

room was fairly light.

On the floor, close to the farther

wall ,lay the body of the man

known on the steamer as Gunther

and later as Gratz. He lay

upon his face, as though he had

been struck down from behind.

A knife still projecting from between

his shoulders showed the

manner of his taking off.

Duvall sprang forward and,

lifting one of his wrists, felt for

his pulse. The clerk, whitefaced

and trembling, closed the


"Too late," said Duvall, letting

the man's arm fall to the floor.

"He is dead, but not for long.

How the other.fellow got out I

cannot Imagine. It must have

been while we were in the parlor

talking to the maid." He turned

to the clerk. "Did any one go

out during that time?"

"Yes—I—I—think so," the fellow

stammered. "I did not particularly

notice. I was busy with

my accounts."

"But you told us vhat the man

Hartmann had not tvone out."

"Oh! No, monsieui*; he did not

go out. He was a large man with

a heavy beard, and so crippled

from rheumatism that he could

scarcely walk. I am quite sure

he did not go out." .

Duvall went to the window,

pulled up the shade ,and glanced

eagerly across the street. Would

Grace recognize Hartmann without

his disguise, or would he

give her the slip? He looked for

her carefully, but she was not in

sight. He concluded that she had

In some way recognized the man

and followed him. He turned

again to the room, determined to

search it thoroughly before calling

In the poliqe.

M. Lefevre was examining

with curiosity some reddish marks

on the wall just above the murdered

man's head, "lie was

writing something on the wall."

he said. "Some message, that he

did not live long enough to complete.

He had dipped his finger

in the blood from his wound and

made the letters that way. Can

you make them out?"

The letters were very irregularly

made, especially toward the

end, as though the hand that

traced them had grown rapidly


"It appears to be 'Hartmann

ist—' " read Duvall. "The last

word he was unable to finish.

What a pity he did not live long

enough to complete it. It might

have told us much that is important."

"What do you make of this?"

asked Mr. Morris, handing the

detective a lump of what appeared

to be putty, which he had

taken from the table.

Duvall looked at it, then smiled

and threw it down.

"Looks like what Is left of our

friend Hartmann's hooked nose,"

he said. "He must have left In

a hurry. I imagine they did not

expect Vernon's body to be found

so quickly. Our arrival must

have surprised them. I suppose

the division of the spoils, as criminals

usually do, or couldn't agree

should say, by the looks of it," he

remarked, touching the handle,

then proceeded to an examination

of the room.

There was but one satchel In

the room—a large traveling bag

—and beside It a rug. Duvall

examined the bag's contents


It contained only some articles

of clothing and other usual

traveling paraphernalia, a hypodermic

syringe in a case, some

tablets of morphin in a bottle,

and a note-book filled with medical

notes and prescriptions, upon

the front cover of which were Inscribed

the words "Victor Relnhardt,

"Very likely. You will be able

tried it you can't Imagine the magical

effect of this harmless home treatment.

It causes tho old worn-out scarf

a little at a time, and soon you have

entirely shed the offensive cuticle.

The fresh young under-skln now in

Fitsimmons, and some think his career

as a middleweight will be even

more brilliant. The middleweight title,

according to Australian reckoning,

passed from Jimmy Clabby to Jeff

Smith and from Smith to Darcy.

the ap-1 When Darcy knocked out McGoorty

baseball he merely clinched It. The Australian

accounts of the fight seem to show

that Darcy was master of Eddie Mc-

Goorty from the moment he entered

the ring until he left it.

It Is decidedly questionable whether

there is a better shortstop in the American

league than Ray Chapman of

the Indians. Besides being a brilliant

fielder and thrower, Chapman Is one

of the fastest men on his feet In either

circuit. Though a light-handed hitter,

he beats out a lot of infield hits and

any time he hits into the infield he

keeps the opposing team hustling to

get the ball to first.

[Editor's Note.—This Is the fourth

article of a series of 12 by that greatest

of all statisticians, Irwin M. Howe,

Kalamazoo baseball fans are taking a

keen interest in the comparisons made

by this great writer. Don't .miss them!

The articles appear only in the Telegraph-Press.]

(By Irwin M. Howe.)

If the result of the coming world's

championship between the Boston Red

Sox and Philadelphia, Nationals, or

the decision in a single game of that

series narrows down to the point

where on defensive play will decide

it. Bill Carrlgan and Boston fans pray

and hope that the commission falls to

Captain Jack Barry. Barry is a veteran

world's series campaigner. He

is the man who is responsible in a

large measure for the return of the

red hosed team and it will be upon

his orders that the Boston campaign

will be carried on afield.

Opposed to Barry will be Bert Niehoff,

Philadelphia second baseman,

and from a comparison of their respective

abilities Pat Moran's keystone

guardian comes off second best.

Bert, however, has one advantage over

his rival. He is a better hitter and

what he lacks on the defensive he is

able to offset with the willow. However,

to Captain Jack Barry goes the


Heine Wagner, another veteran of

considerable experience, is Barry's

understudy for this series. Heine is

a duplicate of Barry, hut lacks the

Stamina. He could not stand tho strain

of a season's toil. This pair of infieldcrs

have no weakness defensively.

They cover all the ground their position

includes, throw strow and true

and are adepts at putting the ball on

a base runner. They are the highest

personification of the brainy player.

Good Ground Covercr.

Niehoff, who will be called upon to

oppose this pair. Is not a second baseman

by choice. He belongs on the far

corner, but was placed at the keystone

hag because he can cover a

wonderful amount of ground to his

left. In lhat way Pat Moran has discounted

a part of Fred Luderus' worst

weakness—lack of ground covering

ability. This handicap on the part of

Luderus compells him to play comparatively

close to the bag.

It is almost useless to extol the

work of Barry and his possibilities in

a world's series. Jack has made

world's series history familiar to us

all. A few words about Niehoff therefore

would not be amiss.

Bert is not a youngster by any

means. He was up in the big ring

once before but couldn't hold on. He

has the experience now and so there

need be no worry along that score.

Niehoff is what Is known as a free hitter.

He takes a healthy wallop at the

ball and generally connects.

There is one point about this player

the records do not show. He works

better when acrisis Is at hand. Bert

Is speedy but not so fast as his rivals. |

He is a good run-getter and is superior

to Barry in this respect because

of his hitting ability, which puts

him in a position to score.

Here's Their Averages.

The following tables show what

Barry, Niehoff and Wagner did against

for him. He is a .250 hitter but

against men such as Mamaux, Meadows

and Tesreau he averaged better

than his year's mark. A slow ball o*

Does the Unexpected.

When the Philadelphia Athletics

were In their prime. Jack Barry was

greatly feared by the pitchers of tho

American league. He was not known

as a slugger but he had an uncanny

habit of delivering a base wallop just

when and where that wallop would do

the most good. He didn't lose any of

that ability when he changed over to

a Red Sox uniform and there Isn't

a pitcher in the younger league today

who would care to face him in a


In the above table it is shown what

he did against eight of the best pitchers

this year. Walter Johnson's speed,

the stuff he will have to face against

Alexander, was touched for a .200

mark. Ray Caldwell of the Yankees,

who also can burn them over the

pan, was found for .500 mark. Against

Scott of the White Sox he attained

the same mark. Dauss, Gallia and

Faber were puzzles, to him in the

few times he faced them.

It Is Interesting to note how Barry

compares with his teammate in these

tables. Both are hitters of the same

class and finished the season around

the .240 mark, yet Barn' in facing the

good pitchers and In games where

base hits counted — outbatted Wagner

by fifty points.

Both May Play.

It Is possible that both Wagner and

Barry will play in the big games.

Barry is the choice to start and no

doubt will play In the majority of

games. Wagner will be given a chance

if for no other than sentimental reasons.

In the 1912 series Heine's playing

was marvelous. He went through with

at least six plays, any one of which

would have meant victory for the

Giants had they failed.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 30. —

There were a lot of disappointments

yesterday afternoon after some two

dozen candidates for the 1915 Michigan

football team had staged their

initial scrimmage.

The trouble was that several lads

who had been scheduled to develop

a semblance, at least, of stardom,

failed completely. And to add to

the individual failures about every

one of the two dozen mussed things

up so badly that there Is considerable

gloom around Ann Arbor today.

Yost was so sore about it all that

he threatened to fire every spectator

off the field. He had to pick out the

spectators because he had used up his

regular assortment of language on the


The score was 6 to 0 with the first

team on the top, but it was a sorry

victory. A lucky forward pass from

eiger to Dunne put the ball over the

line in one of the corners. Then

Yost called a halt. Over three-quarters

of an . hour of tussling had been

staged, and It is likely that if his favorites

hadn't made that touchdown

that they would be at it yet.

It wasn't his best which Coach

Yost lined up as a first team. But

some of the inserts did good work.

Raymond, in for Pat Smith, was just

team. "Rummy" Roehm performing

that Pittsburg had only five points

So close are the leaders that today's

game might upset all three positions.

If Pittsburg should lose and the

other two teams win, Chicago would

lead and St. Louis would resume second

place. On the other hand, it

Pittsburg and 8t Louis should win

and Chicago lost, Chicago would be a

poor third. With Pittsburg and Chicago

The St. Louis Browns of the American

league, one of the teams that will

play at Riverview park next Monday

afternoon, will arrive in Kalamazoo

from Chicago on the Wolverine that

morning, and will be tendered a

luncheon and reception by the Knockers'


Manager Branch Rickey will bring

15 players. Including George Sisler,

the former U. of M. star, who is now

rated as a second Ty Cobb by the

critics on the big circuit, and Ernie

Koob, the left-hander, who started in

generally recognized as the best southpaw

on the St. Louis team and one of

the leading filngers in the Ban Johnson


While complete arrangements have

not been made for the All-Star team

that will oppose the Browns, it is

known that Wade Killifer, who was

with the Cincinnati Nationals this last

season, will be in the lineup. Others

who have accepted contracts are Dolly

Western league, a former Kalamazoo

player, and a brilliant backstopped;

Rutus Gilbert, well known in this city,

and Clyd# Wares, a former member

Heavy Schedule Ready

for Central High Team

With the schedule all arranged and

the team in good shape for the football

season, which starts at Central

be one of the most successful of the

West street school.

The schedule for the year follows:

Oct. 3—Hastings at Kalamazoo.

Oct. 9—Cold water at Coldwater.

Oct. 16—Otsego at Otsego.

Oct. 23.—Albion at Kalamazoo.

Oct. 30—Open.

Nov. 6—Plalnwell at Kalamazoo.

Nov. 13—Grand Rapids at Grand


Nov. 20—Battle Creek at Kalamazoo.

This heavy schedule means that

Coach Seltz must have his men going

the season if he expects to come out

on top with the biggest share of his

games, but with the material assembled

Jack Barry, With Red Sox Now, Holds

Record For Taking World Series Coin



(Bpeclal to The Tel©irr«ph-Pre«8.)

BOSTON, Sept. 30.—The First National

bank of Merlden, Conn., if

that's the bank Jack Barry keeps his

coin in—probably thanks the world's

series games for considerable of Its

surplus at the present time. For the

Red Sox second baseman has been

depositing world's series checks with

monotonous regularity since 1910,

surpassing all other money getters in

this respect.

There have been players who have

Jack Barry.

figured In the golden harvest of as

many as four world's series, Including

Christy Mathewson, who is still

more or less with the New York

Giants, but Barry Is the only artisan

known to baseball to ever figure in

five such princely divisions.

Eddie Plank and Chief Bender of

the Athletics figured In five world's

series, but the money they received

in 1905, when the Mackmen lost to

the Giants, could scarcely be termed

"princely," and would not begin to

measure up to Barry's share of the

receipts this year. In 1905 the receipts

were split 75 per cent to the

winning team and 25 per cent to the

losing agregation. Each Athletic

player received $382. The Philadelphia

club, however, donated Its share


of the receipts to the Athletic players.

making ' each player's share


Barry's fifth will come with the

1915 series, as the Red Sox will form

50 per cent of the fall classic. The

Merlden* marvel's first Introduction

to a world's series check came back

In 1910, when as a member of the

Macklan brigade he helped trounce

the erstwhile Invincible Cub machine,

for which he received $2,-


With the same team Barry aided

in the downfall of the Giants In 1911,

and toted home a check calling for

$3,654.58. This defeat was repeated

In 1913, and Barry's exchequer was

swelled to the extent of $3,246.36.

Last fall he was a member of the

Athletic team that fled before the attack

of tho Boston Braves, and as a

loser he only drew down $2,031.65.

Nlneteen-fifteen again finds him in

a world's series, and his income

ought to range from $2,000 to $8,000,

depending on the outcome. Thus in

six years "Black Jack" has participated

In five series, 1915 Inclusive.

His first four netted him exactly

$10,985.88, and possibly he'll have

something like $14,000 to his credit

when this year's debates are determined.

Idly he was advanced, becoming bookkeeper

and clearing clerk and finally

paying teller. It was three years ago

that he was promoted to this position.

Pythian affairs and at the present

time holds the office of prelate. He

also is identified with the Chamber

of Commerce.

Policeman Musi Act Like

Chesterfield When He Speaks

to Wrong-Doers Hereafter

DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 30.—A citl-

Een was driving his wife's aunt to the

depot in his motor car. She had been

visiting a week and so he wanted to

be sure to catch the train and in his

haste he forgot to be cautious. He

started his machine across Woodward

avenue before the traffic officer had

given the signal to go. The eagle eye

Of the traffic officer observed the

faux pass and the citizen trembled.

He had had such an experience before.

He well remembered how the

traffic officer had leaped at him,

seized the hood of his automobile and

shook it until it rattled inside and the

gasoline was almost spilled out of the


"Whereyagoln'?" the traffic officer

had demanded in a voice of thunder.

"Wotinhellzamattawithyou? Aintja

got no eyerorearaz?"

And the citizen had attempted

humbly, as befit his station, he being

merely the owner of a Rough-Stuff

eight, 1915 model, to explain. Recollecting

this public humiliation, the

citien-chauffeur paused and tremblingly

awaited the storm.

He Removes His Hat.

But It did not' break. The traffic

officer merely held up his gloved

hand In a gentle gesture of warning,

approached the car slowly and having

approached, bowed deferentially, removing

his cap.

"I beg pardon, sir," he said, "but it

becomes my painful duty to inform

ft r ou that you are attempting to cross

this thoroughfare in violation of all

the accepted and approved rules of

traffic. Allow me to call your attention

to ordinance No. umpty-umph,

as enacted by the people of the city

of Detroit. I merely call your attention

to this matter in the hope that the

offense, committed unconsciously and

with no evil intent, I am sure, will

not be repeated. In case of further

unfortunate violations of the traffic

rules, it will become my unwilling

task to report your name and address

to the court Drive on, my dear sir.

I trust my Interference will not prevent

the charming aunt of your esteemed

wife from catching her train."

And as the citizen-chauffeur drove

on he muttered to himself: "Well, I'll

be darned!"

Must Be Polite.

This all comes about through an order

issued by the new superintendent

of police, Ernest Marquardt, that

hereafter all officers shall impart the

Chesterfieldiah touch to their relations

with the public. Politeness must

succeed profanity. That Is the rule.

As a result we can exa*et almost

anything. It's the soft answer that

counts. It wouldn't be surprising to

see the desk sergeants array themselves

in conventional coats for the afternoon

shift and full dress for the

evening work.

Signal officers may be dressed to

the minute. Instead of swinging a

night stick, officers may be found now

holding a book of etiquette In their

right hands.

Hereafter no undue violence will be

tolerated. The mailed fist has given

way to the soft and open palm and

the gauntlet of a stormier day has

been thrown down, not In challenge

to a worthy foe, but to make room

for the wrist watch.

Oh, shades of Tommy Stack!


Reuben H. Compton, aged 70 years,

died at 6:3 Oo'clock this morning at

the home of his daughter, Mrs. H. M.

Cameron, 1105 Eggleston avenue.

Death was due to heart trouble. Mr.

Compton had been the representative

of the Union Oil company of Cleveland

In this city for the past twelve

years. In addition to the daughter,

he Is survived by one son, W. H.

Compton, of Minneapolis, and a

granddaughter. Miss Joyce Cameron,

of this city. Mr. Compton came to

this city from Chicago. Funeral arrangements

will be announced later.

Caused by Disease of The Kidneys

The close connection which exists

between the heart and the kidneys is

well known nowadays. As soon as

kidneys are diseased, arterial tension

is increased and the heart functions

are attacked. When the kidneys no

longer pour forth waste, uremic poisoning

occurs, and the person dies

and the cause is often given as heart

disease, or disease of brain or lungs.

It is a good insurance against such

a risk to send 10 cents for a sample

package of "An-uric"—the latest discovery

by Dr. Pierce. Also send a

sample of your water. This will be

examined without charge by expert

chemists at Dr. Pierce's Invalid's Hotel,

Buffalo, N. Y. When you suffer

from backache, frequent or scanty

urine, rheumatic pains here or there,

or that constant tired, worn-out feeling,

It's time to write Dr. Pierce, describe

your symptoms and get his

medical opinion—without charge and

absolutely free. This "An-uric" of Dri

Pierce's Is 37 times more active than

city, died at 11 o'clock-this morning

in Borgess hospital. For the past 13

years Mrs. Dillon had made her home

In Paw Paw. Besides her husband,

she is survived by six children—Robert,

John, Edmund, Frederick, Harold

a«d Mary; one brother, Fred Mc-

Dougal, and a sister, Mrs. Albert Burgess,

both of this city.

lithia, for it dissolves uric acid in the

system, as hot water does sugar.

Simply ask for Dr. Pierce's An-uric

Tablets. There can be no Imitation.

Every package of "An-uric" is sure to

be Dr. Pierce's. You will find the signature

on the package just as you do

on Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,

the ever-famous friend to ailing



Kidney Disease is suspected by

medical men when patients complain

of backache or suffer with Irregular

urination, disturbed, too frequent,

scanty or painful passage. The general

symptoms are rheumatic pains or

neuralgia, headaches, dizzy spells, irritability,

despondency, weakness and

general misery. Worry is a frequent

cause and sometimes a symptom of

kidney disease. Thousands have testified

to Immediate relief from these

symptoms after using Dr. Pierce's

An-uric Kidney Tablets.—Adv.

Co-operation has been the shibboleth

of success In every under-#

taking ventured by man • since the

beginning of things. History fails

to record a military victory of consequence

or an achievement of

state that has been accomplished

despite the dissemination of the nation's

subjects. Society is founded

upon the basic principle of

unity. Chaos and disorder reign

when the cementing bond of society

is served by individual discords.

The lexicon of man. contains

the word "selfishness" and therefore

the note corresponding to the

term must be found in the human

make-up. On that account sages

have denied the possibility of a

perfect society in the material order.

Successful community building

requires the concerted effort of society

to override the human weakness

and weld the labors of the

whole towards the obtaining of that

which makes for the common good.

In that is * co-operation—the first

and primal rudiment to learn in

the course of "empire" making.

From its birth as a white man's

village under the siring of Titus

Bronson, who erected the first log

cabin back in 1842, In its adloscence

as a town In ante-bellum

days, during that period preceding

the donning of the municipal

toga, and finally after Its graduation

west, -Kalamazoo has been Impressed

construction. During the lone

of changes In her growth, the dty

and In fact, ran the gamut of

dvic emotions, which is the lot of

all municipalities in the making.

Always was there indomitable publie-spirited

men to ride at the

emergendes and awake in the

breasts of their fellow townsmen

the need of that co-operative bond

among all to beat back ill fortunes

and to go ahead.

And advance it did. There may

have been lulls in the wind of progress,

dissensions might have at one

time or another disrupted the civic

concord, private and selfish interests

may have brooked for a moment

the progress of the city, and

idealists and champions of chimerical

cities may have seen their

castles fall like Nineveh and Tyre,

but the prosperity march of the

city has been the steady, unfaltering

charge of Hannibal's infantry,

which knew no halt but for rest.

During the last five years Kalamazoo

has taken her place naturally

and graciously as the fourth

city of the state, and as the metropolis

of southwestern Michigan.

The positions may be called both

her geographical right and her

moral prerogative.

the unfiinching zeal and toil of Its

citizenry, who have been led by

high-minded dynamic men of great

moral principle and strong determination.

made the city a formidable rival

of Grand Rapids as the retail center

of western Michigan, besides

the place It already holds in the

southern section of the state. From

every direction*—north, south, east

and west—the city is accessible by

at least one railroad, steam or eleotrio

line. Located half way between

Chicago and Detroit on the main

line of the Michigan Central, the

retailers have open to them a potential

field fifty miles in both directions.

The north and south,

connected by a network of railroads

and interurban lines with the city,

offers as many possibilities.

The retailers fully appreciate the

advantages that the position affords

and have effected an organization

in a co-operative movement

to open up more extensive trading

districts to draw from. They have

not only Inhaled the spirit of co-

the city but have themselves created

a great part of it, as Is manifested

by the role they have taken

in- the events of Prosperity week.

In fact, of co-operation they have

made a ritual which Is ultimately

The retail establishments in the

of the men behind the concerns.

work of the retail business of the

But we have diverted from the

hand—that of the city, of its resources

and its potentialities.


position in the heart of the richest

agricultural district of the state

has already been partly described.

Fifty miles of territory in practically

every direction is connected

with the city by railroads and electric

lines, as has been already said.

The lines total twelve, making the

city the greatest railroad center in

the state aside from Detroit.

There have been frequent rumors

afloat pertaining to the proposed

electrification of the Fruit Belt line,

which conneots the city with the

rich fruit growing country directly

west to Lake Michigan. The territory

has been a lucrative tributary

to Kalamazoo In the past but

the opinion has prevailed that with

better transportation facilities, a

far wider retail trade could be

drawn from the district. The mati

ter has been proposed on several

occasions and Is at present under

the advisement of the officials of

the Michigan United Traction company,

owners of the road.

The new Michigan Railway interurban

line between Kalamazoo

and Grand Rapids has opened up

a large territory to the north which

was formerly closed to the merchants

on account of the inadequacy

of transportation facilities.

The records of the road are

, iiii' .

business caused In the city by the

beginning of operations on the line.

The Grand Rapids & Indiana,

Lake Shore and Grand Trunk railroads

bring the residents of northern

Indiana and southern Michigan

into the city from the south. About

twenty passenger trains are scheduled

on these three roads daily. A

large amount of express business

that/the books of the local offices

showed for the last year are a

bright indication of the rural business

that is being done in the city

also. Freight receipts are also

heavy for the last year.

One- of the most fitting testimonials

of a city's progressive

spirit is the number of large buildings

and the kempt appearance of

the streets.

Kalamazoo is better

equipped in this respect than any

city of Its size in the country. Indeed,

its metropolitan appearance,

its business district, paving, and all

the other manifested signs of civic

pride have been commented upon

by the press of the country. It is

not only a healthy omen but signifies

growth and communal pride

reflecting on the humblest citizen

and taxpayer.

The city is wonderfully free of

the smoke pest, with which so

many manufacturing communities

are afflicted. This Is largely due

to the plan by which the city was

laid out and to which posterity has

rigidly adhered. All of the industris

are located either in the eastern

or southern part of the city,

and at a considerable dislance

mute evidence of the expansionfit from the business district, The

route Of the railroads in and out

of the city-have largely aided the

maintenance of the plan.

The merchants and propertyowners

in the downtown district

have collaborated In "putting on

a front," which Is maintained the

year round. The shop windows are

given as much attention in the way

of artistry in display and neatness

as the professional decorators of

metropolitan department stores

shower on their creations at the

fall openings. Competition in the

display window and the appearance

of the buildings is unusually

keen and but further proves the

thrift of the Kalamazoo merchant.

A prominent educator of the

east has contributed the statement

that Kalamazoo Is one of the leading

educational centers of the west.

Her place as the foremost instructive

community In the state is however


The city's industries speak for

themselves. The city is the papermill

cente^ of the world and ranks

high in the metal Industry, ^he

Kalamazoo Stove works are known

and advertised from coast to coast.

Sixty per cent of the peppermint of

the world is manufactured here.

There are an aggregate of 20 industries

operating in the city.

Water supply from the Kalamazoo

river is at hand, factory sites and

facilities are naturally provided.

Nature has been provident and indulgent

to the city. Located in a

valley whose fertile land has

brought to the community the fame

derived from the choicest and most

abundant celery In the world, all

the beauty and resources of the

state seem to have been specially

collected and endowed upon the

city destined to come into its

natural , inheritance as the second

city of Michigan.

As a site for state and interstate

conventions, It is not to be equalled.

Not only is it centrally located but

the new state armory on Water

street and Its hotel facilities make

it better fitted to take care of a

convention than any of its neighboring


The armory has a

seating capacity of 3,000 people,

and at present is being used for

an exhibit hall during the events

of Prosperity week. The city has

22 hotels, four of which are rated

as high class. The city is equipped

with the finest of restaurants in addition

to the hotel cafes. *

All this has been recorded to further

Impress the significance which

Kalamazoo has assumed in the

state and to indicate In some manner

the setting for the exposition

which will be held in the city. Prosperity

week itself is the manifestation

of the spirit and co-operation

among the business men, merchants,

and Industrial heads of the


It has been breathed from

the city which was built on that

co-operative spirit which is the

flesh of "empire" making. Like the

men who fought, toiled and sweated

in the hewing of the first log

cabins that were to make the village

of Kalamazoo; like the champions

of the ideals that were to

later carry the village to the rank

of a city; like the sturdy citizens

of the municipality who saw in

the community what it promises to

be, and strived for that end with

might'and vim", so today, not two

months ago, men of the same call*

ber who perceived that the city was

in need of a stimulant, rolled up

their sleeves and started after a

panacea for the times.

Maybe the co-operative spirit of

the community was wavering that

caused the peremptory tackling of

a proposition that would result in

a fair that is to be conducted on a

scale hitherto unthought of in the

state. At any event these publicspirited

men, actuated by that loyalty

of city which lifts the heart

and burdens the body beyond Imagination,

saw their community in

need of concentration of its units

and decreed Prosperity week.

The preparations for the events

have been completed with painstaking

labor and toll that lasted for

two months. The men in charge

have put their hours, their minds

and hearts into the work. To them

the city Is indebted beyond that

Kalamazoo is a city of homes.

That may be the reason why the

city boasts some of the finest and

most complete furniture stores to be

found In any city of its size.

Whatever may be the reason, the

fact remains, that no city of its size

In the state of Michigan offers to Its

residents such splendid opportunities

to buy beautiful furniture for their

homes than does Kalamazoo. For

Kalamazoo's furniture shops offer the

newest and best, the most commendable

furniture to be found anywhere

in the state.

Kalamazoo's home-makers are discriminating

house-furnishers. And

they have been aided In cultivating

this discrimination by the splendid

co-operation of the furniture houses

of this city.

There is not a line of period furniture

which cannot be furnished by

the furniture houses of Kalamazoo.

It is exemplified In Its proper setting.

In all the various kinds of wood, and

nowhere Is to be found more complete

stocks of high grade furniture

than those which the Kalamazoo

shops have to offer.

Kalamazoo's furniture men are educated

In furniture lines. And by the

way. it is doubtful if there is any

single line of merchandising which

requires more careful study than that

of the furniture business. To be a

really capable furniture dealer, one

must have not only an accurate

knowledge of woods and their various

treatment, but a still more accurate

knowledge o^ history. One must know

the different surroundings in which

the great rulers of other ages and

other countries lived, and the Influences

which the various regimes had

upon tho mode of life, and styles of

furnishing. All this is necessary to

the man who would select with authority

for his clientele the right types

of furniture. Added to all this there

must be the element of adaptability

In his training which enables hlnv to

select style of furniture which shall

embody correctness of line and dependableness

of construction with

utility suited to the demands of his


And that's the sort of furniture

dealers Kalamazoo has. They're specialists

in house furnishing. They're

not mere retailers of the output of

furniture factories. Their stores give

evidence of all this. And that's the

reason shoppers come from far and

wide to Kalamazoo to select the furniture

with which to outfit their


In many of the shops model flats

combinations of furniture, while In

The Public Library

Kalamazoo has held her head high

whenever discussion of libraries came

up during educational conventions In

the state. The reason Is the neat

little sandstone building you see in

the picture. The structure with Its

simple but artistic architectural trimmings

is the gift of the ?ate Dr. and

Mrs. E. H. Van Dusen, whose philanthropies

and civic zeal will form part

of th© history of the city.

From 124 books whlcn comprised

the nucleus of the public library in

1S72, the Institution has gradually

swollen until today there are on the

shelves of the Rose street building

more than 50.000 volumes. The

stages of the evolution of the library

are marked by years of establishment

In back rooms in down town office

buildings until 1892 when the library

at the corner of Rose and South

streets became a reality.

The main floor Is devoted to the

library proper and reading and referi

"Kalamazoo has some of the best

style pickers when It comes to shoes

of any city this side of Chicago."

That's what a shoe expert said

about Kalamazoo's shoe buyers not

long ago. And that gives just a bit

of an Inkling of the type of shoe stores

of which Kalamazoo boasts.

Nor does that mean that when one

buys shoes in Kalamazoo one Is required

to pay exorbitant prices because

the shoes have the authoritative

mark of the last style note. Not at

all. For Kalamazoo's shoe stores offer

shoes from every price, and every

quality, two prime requisites being

made for every shoe that Kalamazoo

shoe dealers offer their customers,

they are that the shoes shall be

worthy, and that .they shall sound the

proper styltf note.

However, much Kalamazoo shoe

shops may cater to the novelties in

shoe styles (and there's no new style

note which is not given a hearing in

this city) the main effort Is to provide

shoes which shall be reliable,- shoes

which shall be worthy, and shoes

which shall at the same time, be

Indeed Kalamazfto nas a large

clientele of sh6ppers from Dowagiac,

Niles and the intervening towns.

From Decature. Lawton, Paw Paw,

South Haven and all the towns along

the Fruit Belt line, Kalamazoo shops

draw patronage, while people from

Schoolcraft, Vicksburg, T;liree Rivers,

White Pigeon and all the towns in

that direction think of no other place

than Kalamazoo to do their shopping.

And indeed there are some lines of

trade in Kalamazoo which draw

patronage from even the nearby

states. So wide is the radius from

which Kalamazoo's shoppers come,

and so large is the patronage which

comes from the "towns, that indeed it

is doubtful if there is another city in

the state of the size of Kalamazoo

which such a rare distinction as a

shopping center as does Kalamazoo.

They come to by clothes, for Kalamazoo's

ready to wear stores have

exclusive garments, second in autoritative

style points to none in the

county. They come here to buy

shoes, men come here to buy clothing,

householders come to Kalamazoo to

«my for furniture with which to beau-

'tlfy their homes, they come here for

stoves, they come here for confectionery,

they come to Kalamazoo for

every line of merchandise. And the

fact is they come to Kalamazoo, because

Kalamazoo offers the best of

everything to be had for the money,

ajid because the splendid transprotation

facilities afford easy access to

their popular trading center.'

Tradition has connected towers,

such as the one at the Kalamazoo

state hospital, with the tragedy and

romance that thrived in the middle

ages. To all portents the "tower"

as it is known to the attendants

could form a fitting locale for the enactment

of the most thrilling of medivial

love ventures or to house such

victims of tragedy as would pale a

character of Dumas.

However, it is as far separated

from the laymen's notion ' of its

usage, which ig the belief that it is

the rabidly insane quarters of the

institution that is imaginable. Prosaically

it is the water tower, and has

a reserve tank of 3,000.000 gallons

capacity. Ordinarily it is used for

private consumption alone, but in

times of emergency in the city, such

as outbreaks of big fires, the local

lire department falls back on it. It

was erected with the main building

of the hospital.


All the new equipment for the

public school playgrounds, ordered

at the September meeting of the board

of education has arrived and has

been taken on the grounds of


various schools, where the erection

is to take place.

City Sets Apart Spare for Ruralists

and Vssista Them in Marketing

Their rroduce.

Kalamazoo Is the trading center for

the farmers of southwestern Michigan.

Indeed she has always been.

From the time the pioneer farmers

of Kalamazoo county drove In to the

village of Bronson bringing on their

carts their potatoes, their wheat, their

corn, ihelr butter and their eggs, to

trade them for sugar ami for calico,

and the like, until this present day

and ihe like, mull this present say

when they motor in bring their products

on ihe trailers on the back of.

•their machines, Kalamazoo has always

been the trading center for the

farmers of southwestern Michigan.

One of the earliest evidences of

this was the organization of the

Farmers sheds in Farmers avenue,

•where farmers and their wives from

all over tin's section brought ihelr

butter and their eggs and their vegetables

to exchange them for the groceries

which the store had to ofter.

There they stabled their horses,

protecting them from the heat of

FIIminer and the cold of winter, while

they and their wives took the revenue

from their products and spent it

for shoes and clothing and furniture

' in the stores of Kalamazoo.

With an ever increasing number of

automobiles and still more interurbans,

even greater has Kalamazoo

3oomed up to the residents of the

rural districts, and the importance of

1 this city as the logical trading ceni

ter has been given evidence. It offers

alike an output for their prod-

"ucts and the best shopping center in

the section.

As an outgrowth of the immense

trade which comes to Kalamazoo

from the farming sections around the

town are the large number of Jm-

plement retail stores. Kalamazoo

does a considerable business in seeds,

and in feed also while Kalamazoo

shops in general make a special effort

to cater especially to the demands

of the rural population.

Farmers from all over this section

of the country come to Kalamazoo to

do their banking. They come to

Kalamazoo for their amusement, they

come here for their shopping, and

they come here because Kalamazoo Is

and always has been the trading center

for the farmers of southwestern

When people of southwestern Michigan

think of clothes, they think of


And why shouldn't they?

For Kalamazoo has the finest line

of clothing stores for both men and

women of any city in southwestern

Michigan. Indeed, some of the bigger

cities of the state which boast a

larger number of stores, fall far, far

short of casting anything but the most

favorable reflection upon Kalamazoo

when it comes to the matter of style,

of authoritative display, of variety, or

of prices.

So why shouldn't the people of

southwestern Michigan think of Kalamazoo

when they think of clothes?

And if you don't believe all this, just

take a trip to some of the bigger

Michigan cities, then come back to

! your own shops and see if you can't

' ilnd clothing every bit as modish,

sounding every single style note, and

i at just as reasonable prices as any

you'll find there.

Once upon a time there were those

in the prehistoric days of Kalamazoo

who sometimes thought that they

needs must, make regular shopping

trips to cities If they were to secure

the very smartest things. And so the.\

did it.

One fine day, one of these shoppers

came back, after a three days' shopping

expedition, to find exactly the

same things she had traveled three

Kalamazoo in 1S60 was a little

more than the proverbial lane, as'this

picture will testify to, but the picture

hundred miles to get shown in the

shops of her own city, at even a little

bit lower price. And she had failed

In her effort at exclusivenesy and beside

had lost her railroad fare and

three days' hotel bill.

One by one. these out-of-town shoppers

gradually awoke with a dull

thud to the same truth which has now

become so well known, that these

erstwhile popular three days' shopping

trips to other cities have become

a thing of the past.


When the City Began

For Kalamazoo's clothing stores

have the clothes to offer for both men

and women.

No city can possibly offer better

facilities than do Kalamazoo stores.

Every one of the big stores have buying

representatives continually in New

York. Their ears to the ground, they

immediately get the first low rumble

of a style change, and no sooner do

they get it than Kalamazoo has the

thing to offer. Tn addition to this,

buyers for some of the Kalamazoo

a reproduction of the same thoroughfare

taken In 1915. From this sprinkling

has sprung the thriving city

which leaps into national fame as the

stores make monthly trips to the New

York markets, so that there Is a constant

stream of the smart new things

from America's style center constantly

pouring Into the Kalamazoo stores

ready for their selection.

Beside all this, with the regular

monthly trips of buyers to the eastern

markets, there is an opportunity

for special purchases made for customers

who desire some particular

thing, and a splendid special order

business has been built up by the


fosterer and founder of a creation in

communal concentration. "Prosperity

Week," that is destined to return national


Kalamazoo stores.

Not to be outdone by the women's

clothing stores, the- men's clothing

houses offer exactly the same splendid

opportunities for the well-dressed


Men's clothing stores in Kalamazoo

have for the selection of their patrons

every one of the well known nationally

advertised lines of ready-to-wear

clothes, and nowhere Is a new style

note heard before Kalamazoo gets it.

Kalamazoo has an unusually -large


liocal Merchants Enjoy Confidence of

Those Desiring Honesty in


Every business calls for confidence.

But there are some lines of merchandise,

the very nature of which

demands that the customer unless h«

be a connoisseur, must have a certain

amount of confidence in the dependableitess

of his dealer.

Such a line is the jewelers. And

Kalamazoo is to bo especially congratulated

that she has such splendid,

dependable, absolutely reliable

jewelry stores as those which are

doing business in this city.

Extensive Indeed is the line which

they carry, and the very newest creations

of the jewelers design are to bo

found In the shops of this crty.

Jewelry that is reliable, gems ^that

are real, stones that are priceless,,

able ware that Is genuine, ail these

are to be found in Kalamazoo's

jewelry shops. A number of the

stores make a specialty of diamonds,

while others feature clocks, and one

well known jeweler Is likewise a manufacturer

and from his workshop

comes the most beautiful and original

of designs. He takes the gems you

may have had for years and works

them Into any design you may select,

or he msiy devise.

And all of Kalamazoo's jewelers

have built up for themselves the

reputation of absoulte dependableness,

which adds a splendid feature to

fhe long list of virtues which Kalamazoo

claims for her retailers.

shops, and men's specialty

houses. And in addition to this Uiere

are in Kalamazoo some of the Pnest

Supplying a need which is filled byno

other organization in the city, supiplementing

the work of every other

religious and social organization, the

Young Women's Christian association

Is one of the most worthy, most

worthy while, most commendable organizations

in the entire city. |

Quietly, without ostentation, yet

persistently and continuously this organization

pursues its work, that

work, the work of helping girls. Few

people in Kalamazoo realize the extent

of the work this organization accomplishes

In the course of a year,

and few If any even of those most

jclosely associated with the work

realize the scope of the work which

the faithful secretaries of the organization

carry on.

^Y. W. C. A. Does Good Work.

From giving lodging to the girl

stranded in the city, finding employment

for her if need be, to guiding

the girl in her literary and religious

studies the work of the Youny Women's

Christian association In Kalamazoo

runs the entire gamut of social

service among girls, and through

its various departments does an

amount of work which would be surprising

to the ordinary person.

Handicapped though the Association

Is, through its lack of a Y. W. C.

A. building properly equipped, neverttieless

It makes most excellent use

of every Inch of space, and every bit

of effort which is possible under the

present circumstances.

Four secretaries are in charge of

the work of the association, Miss Ida

Mary Hoebel, general secretary is In

charge of the business end of the organization

and Is In general charge

of the activities of the Association.

Miss Hoebel Is at the head of the

Triangle Girls, a club of young business

women who are doing excellent

work along educational and social

lines. Miss Hoebel is likewise in

charge of the religious work of the

organization which includes the Bible

classes, and the vesper services which

are held regularly each Sunday afteraoon.

One of the most interesting features

of the work of the Young Women's

Christian association, and withal

one of the very most valuable features

of the work is that which is done by

Miss Annie G. Clements, Travelers Aid

eecretary. This little woman so as-,

suming, yet so reliable is tho one to

whom hundreds of girls owe cheir

safety, and their protection from designing


Guard Traveling Public,

Faithfully, and conscientiously this

little woman keeps guard over the

traveling public, particularly the

young girl, and the helpless mother

with a little family. To estimate the

value of her work would be impossible.

For one minute she is helping

a tired mother and her little brood

to the right train to reach their

destination, and the next minute she

is taking the unsuspecting young girl

to a place of safety far from the reach

of those who would entice her to her


Indeed she Is the guardian angel

of the stations and many is the girl

whom she has brought to the Association

rooms to keep her there until

sufficient funds could be procured to

send her to some relative or responsible

friend. Hers is the most

unassuming yet most valuable pieces

of work which the Young Women's

Christian association docs in Kalamazoo.

And then thetre is the extension

work of the association, the work

which goes out to the girl from out

of the city ftmployed in the factories

and offices ol the city, and gives to

her a homelike atmosphere, and an

opportunity to meet other girls, and

ioin with them in worth while, endeavor.

These ohibs are organized in several

of the factories of the city. Once

each week the various clubs meet at

the Association rooms, where they

have social houra classes of various

kinds, and team to do the practical

worth while things of value to the

most capable woman.

Aid Colored Girls.

Nor are the colored girls forgotten

In theso clubs, for one of the most

interesting clubs in the extension department

is lha Let Us Be Friends

club connposed entirely of colored

girls who are most enthustastic in

their Jnteaest In the Young Women's

Christian association.

Miss Mliiinle H. Smith, the new extension

secretary, who has recently

come to thy. Association is in charge

of the works of these clubs and has

some 'tnteresitlng plans under way for

the wlater saaaon.

In addition to all these is the work

among the young girls who with their

Camp 1'ire and their Colonial clubs

are moslt enthusiastic supporters of

the Association.

However one oif the most patronized

teaturas of the Association work is

that of tha luncheon room which under

the dlirection of Miss Imogen

Fletcher serves nundreds of luncheons

and ah many supper every day.

It is not proposed to make this an

especially profitable proposition, since

the point of the Y. W. C. A. lunch

room is to serve to the business girl,

whether a member of the Association

or not good wholesome luncheons at

prices which they can afford to pay

without in any way proving a loss to

the association. In this way the girl

feels, and in fact it is true that she

receives onty what she pays for, but

she is getting it at a margin which

makes it possible for her to live on

her salary If It happens to be small.

Right soon the Young Women's

Christian association will ask the people

of Kalamazoo for contributions to

a big building fund. Already they

have a considerable fund as a nucleus,

and they have now an option on

the Cornell proirerty, one of tho best

locations for such an institution In the

entire city.

Equipped with, a building commensurate

with their need, and the

work of the Kalamazoo Young Women's

Christian association will be

enormous, for no city of its size offers

bettor opportunities for the activities

of such an association than

does Kalamazoo.

(By United Prets.)

NEW YORK, Sept. 30.—The greatest

galaxy of speed kings ever gathired

about one track will face the

Marter's gun here Saturday in the

first 350-mile race for the Astor Cup

•n the new Sheepshead Bay course.

About thirty cars are ocheduled to

make the start, but it Is probable

there will be some eleventh hour


Hopes of an American made car

carrying off the honors rested largely

on the Stutz and .Maxwell entries.

There are four Stutz cars, two of

them piloted by Earl Cooper and Gil

Anderson, who finished first and second

respectively in the recent Minneapolis

race, and at Elgin they divided

the two big road races between them.

Eddie Rlckenbacker in his Maxwell

also is expected to make a bid for


The Peugeot entries are considered

the most dangerous—both the cars

and their drivers. There are five of

them, each with a driver of international

fame—Darlo Resta, Bob Burman,

Howdy Wilcox, Johnny Aitken

and Ralph Mulford.

Barney Oldfield and his well known

cigar will be seen at the wheel of a

Delage, and Ralph Depalma, who won

the five hundred mile race at Indianapolis

last May, will pilot a Mercedes.

Besides the custody of the Astor

Cup, prizes aggregating $50,000 will

go to the winners."

The big oval has been pronounced

by the drivers working in practice

spins as almost perfect. The motordrome

is constructed of wood, steel

and concrete, and will accomodate

nearly 200,000 persons. The course

is two miles, with two straightways

and two banks.



With every department of the big

Gilmore Bros, store vying with every

other department or the store in the

effort to make the Prosperity week

display and Prosperity week values

the best. Prosperity week visitors in

Kalamazoo are to be given a most

excellent opportunity to get the new

fall styles.

In fact Gilmore's is to present a

style showing in every departmnet

very much like a style show, and as

elaborate In every section as a formal

fall opening. There are to be special

values offered for this week as well,

and every effort will be made to

give the visitors in Kalamazoo next

week the very best possible evidence

of Kalamazoo's metropolitan and up

to the minute methods of merchandising.

Gilmore's entire store will be turned

over to the visitors to extend to

them the greatest possible hospitality.

Parcels will be checked at the exchange

desk, every one of the thirty

telephones in the house will be at

the disposal of the visitors. Seats

will be placed in the splendid daylight

dress goods section at the rear of

the store, and on the second floor

the rest rooms and toilet rooms will

be at the disposal of the women visitors

with a maid in attendance.

Mothers may leave their children

In the play room on the fifth floor

during the day, a matron being in

charge to take care of all children

over three years of age. The store

will be elaborately decorated throughout

and in every department special

values will be offered each day.

At their booth in the Pythian

temple will be exhibited a splendid

showing of embroideries and draperies

as well as many other interesting

style features.



The. county jail like many' other

institutions In other cities is a victim

of circumstances. The building

has been termed archaic and about

all the other mean things In the

category of criminal reformers but

the county officials have made the

best of things under the circumstances

and provided as many facilities as

possible under existing conditions

which will not permit a special apappropriation

for a new building.

The appropriation will probably be

given a referendum at next election

when the people will likely decree a

new jail. The present one has been



i •:

standing since 1882. The ground floor

is composed of the "cage" for the

desperate element, and two tiers "of

cells for the less refractory prisoners.

The second floor is given over to

trusties quarters and a woman's ward.

The sheriff's apartments, office, Bertillon

room, and turnkey's room is m

the fore-part of the building.



One of the busiest places in the

city during Prosperity Week will be

tljlfe Velleman store (in East Mfain

street. For Velleman has made arrangements

for an unusually big display

of attractive goods for this week

all specially priced for the benefit of

the Prosperity week visitors.

Ever day will bring its special display

of special prices and bargains at

this store, and the windows will be

filled to their capacity with all these

specially priced goods.

The members of the Velleman's

sales force will be taxed-to their limit

to complete arrangements for the big

event, and it is safe to predict that

the store will be crowded during every

day by the Kalamazoo Prosperity

week visitors, who are eager to share

the prosperity which Kalamazoo's

merchants are offering to them.

Velleman has made a spocial

fort to offer to his patrons an un-

•usually fine opportunity in his Prosperity

week showing.



Just how shoes and rubbers are

made, all the various processes from

the beginning until the end of tho

process will be demonstrated by the

exhibit in the Appeldoorn Shoe store

during Prosperity week.

Appeldoorns have secured rubber in

the raw state, after its first treatment,

and through all the various stages

until it comes forth in the beautiful

new pure riibber boots, which • this

season are in purest white.

Likewise with shoes they will demonstrate

the various process of the

shoemakers' trade, and will show

how shoes are sewed and turned, and

the lasts on which they are made. All

parts of the shoe will be assembled

In the window.

And of course the Cinderella shoe

will« be displayed, and other interesting

features will be exhibited which

will make the Appeldoorn store a

popular place. Special values for the

week will also be announced.





Organized four years ago, beginning

in a very small way the Horton-

Beimer Printing establishment has

grown with leaps and bounds during

its short history and is now recognized

as one of the finest, most reliable,

most efficient printing establishments

in the city.

Located in the basement of the bank

building, they have excellent quarters,

and are thorouRhly equipped for the

splendid business which they are doing.

They print among other things

several publications, among them being

the Michigan Suffragist, the Normal

Record, and the Brown and Gold,

the Normal school annual. In addition

to thia they deal in wedding stationery,

business cards, circulars,

booklets, catalogues, and all sorts of

commercial printing, as well as poster

work. They have a new system of

embossing which has come into quite

notable popularity.

Altogether the Horton-Beimer company

is one of the reliable business

institutions of Kalamazoo and entirely

deserving of the splendid prosperity

which has bee ntheirs.

"Let there be light." That was In

the Moses-cellar episode, and when

Kalamazoo was beginning to clamour

for electricity. Now there is light—

light advertised to rival the rays of

the sun. The homes and business

houses are furnished with their electric

illumination by the Commonwealth

Power company. The "juice"

Is generated !n this plant, which is

situated on the east bank of the Kalamazoo

river, a few hundred yards

north of East Main street.

The plant is said to be the best in

the southwestern part of the state and

has a greater generating capacity. It

supplies the street car system with

electricity ^Iso. The present plant has

been in operation since 1910.

Welfare work in the Upjohn company

Is taking great strides.

The latest addition to the comprehensive

system which that company

is installing is a shower bath room

and dressing rooms for the young

women employed in the various departments

of tho Upjohn company.

Build Elaborate Balha.

Three marble showers and four

large airy dressing rooms are now under

construction on the second floor

west side of the building. The men

already have their showers. There is

a plan under way now, not fully completed,

by which the girls will be allowed

time each week for bathing on

. on the company's time, if they prefer


to take hot and cold showers at the

factory rather than bathe at home.

The showers will be at the service

of the girls after hours anyway, but

this special arrangement would accommodate


The emergency hospital or "first

aid" room at the Upjohn company is

a model of up-to-date apparatus and

sanitary precautions. It is perhaps

impossible to estimate tho real welfare

work done In this department

and blood poisoning and suffering

prevented by tho proper care of small

cuts and wounds.

First Aid Equipment.

The first aid room contains a

sterilizer, couch, a wheel chair in

which patients can be brought to the

first aid room and all the necessary

instruments to take care of injuries.

The dining room for the employes,

which is also a part of the welfare

work for Upjohn men and women is

a beautiful largo room, in which

about 100 people eat each noon. This

dining room has grown from a tiny

room in one end of the building to a

huge department with scorces of

tables. When a dining room was first

Installed, it was an experiment. But

It proved such a success and was so

popular with employes that more

iartitions have been knocked out

? rom time to time until now the entire

end of the building is used for the

dining room. Spacious rooms are also

used for the kitchen and rooms

where the food is prepared.

Luncheons Are Economical.

The most important items on the

bill of fare are gratis to all employes.

Bread, fruit, cake and many other

things, which are changed each day

r are a cent each. It is understood

" that no men could possibly consume

more than ten cents worth of dinner

when he adds the gratis dishes. A

feast can be gotten for seven cents,

and enough for several people for 16


Other plans for the welfare of the

Upjohn employes will be worked out

from time to time as these caring for

More than a ton of old papers has

already been collecced at the Woodward

avenue school since school opened,

according to announcement made

today by the principal of the school

James Starkweather.

The children of the school are

asked to bring all the old magazines

and newspapers they can collect to

the school. These are then sold to

the paper mills, and the money is

used to buy apparatus and equipment

which the school childern and their

teachers want, which the board of

education has no appropriation for in

the budget.



When canning this year, the housewives

of the city are urged by the

Kalamazoo Anti-Tuberculosis Society

to put up a few extra cans of fruit

and vegetables for the little kiddles

at the open air school. ,

The point Is brought out that Ithe

children need the fruits and vegetables

and they are so reasonable at

this time of the year that housewives

are putting them up by the bushel.

If each one would put up a few cans

with the open air school in mind, It

would mean much

to the children

during the coming winter.

The address of the open air school

Is 421 Pine street, directly back of the

Lovell street school. It Is open until

4 o'clock each afternoon.

Much Interest Being Shown in

Event to Be Held on

Octobcr 11.

Unusual interest is being shown in

the recital which will be given Monday

evening, October 11, at the First,

Baptist church under the direction of

the Sherwood School of Music when

the artists will bo Miss Georgia Kober

of Chicago, pianist and Parmelia

Newby Gale contralto, both of the

faculty of the Sherwood Conservatory.

Tickets were placed on sale today

at the Colman Drug store, and it is

probable that the high grade of the

program to be given will assure an

Immense audience for the concert.

The Kalamazoo representatives of

the Sherwood school includ Miss Victoria

McLaughlin, Miss Frances Leavens.

Mrs. E. A. Read, Miss Pearl

Chllson and Mrs. Leonora Meyers.


A. B. Connable Alleges Tliat Payment

On Xotes Ha« Not

Been Made.

Former Mayor A. B. Connable has

brought a $40,000 damage suit against

Dallas county. Mo., to recover money

on a note, issued at the time of the

construction of a railroad In that part

of the state. Louis Krughoff was

awarded a judgement against the

county for $24,647.31 of which sum

It was specified that $3,850.65 was

to bear interest at ten percent and

the balance at six percent. Nothing

It Is alleged has been paid on the

note which the Kalamazoo man later

bought from Krughoff. The suit Is

brought In the federal court for the

southern division of the western district

of Missouri. The notes were

issued in October, 1905.



The Kalamazoo Anti-Tuberculosis

society has again been favored with

a fine service rendered by the Pythian

Sisters. Twelve woolen blankets that

have been used during the year, were

nicely bound and put In good order,

ready for cold weather. The Kalamazoo

Laundry Company was also helpful

In cleaning, without cost, the blankets

and suits used by the children at

the Open Air school. These favors

are greatly appreciated by the officers

who bear the responsibility of

carrying on the j work.


TO GIVE AWAY $10,000

lialamazoo Prosperity Week visitors

are to receive $10,000. And the Mc-

Cormick Sales company is going to

make the gift. This is the way they

will do it. You see the McCormick

Sales company is the local representative

of the Hupmobile. And so during

Prosperity Week, just to share their

prosperity with the visitors, they arc

planning to give to every person who

purchases a five passenger Hupmobile

during Prosperity week, a check for

S110, and to every person who purchases

a seven passenger Hupmobile

during Prosperity week, a check for

$125 will be given.

This insures that all Kalamazoo

visitors who are interested in automobiles

will visit the headquarters of

this concern at West North and

Douglas avenue and avail themselves

of this splendid offer which holds

good only during this one big eventful

Fall Planting for Spring

Bulbe Already Begun by Many

Garden lovers who wish tl^eir gardens

or the ground around their

houses to be rich with narcissus and

jonquils, should begin their work

without delay, for fall is the time to

plant the bulbs of these flowers. The

work should be undertaken as soon

as, or even before, an early frost has

weakened the annual flowers in the


In the case of narcissus, many

households will find it advantageous

to naturalize the plant so that it

grows ahd blossoms on the lawn much

as the wild flowers do. In many of

the parks of the larger estates of

England, in portions of North Carolina,

on estates along the James river.

In Virginia, and In old New England

gardens, narcissuses that were planted

over half a century ago are still

vigorous and produce every spring a

beautiful display of blossoms..

To naturalize the narcissus it should

be planted in the sod or partial shade.

Make a small hole In the soil five or

six inches deep. Insert the bulb,

pointed end up, and press the soil

over the top. Planting In rows of

geometrical figures should be avoided.

An easy method of accomplishing

. this Is to scatter the bulbs as if one

were sowing seed, and then plant

them where they happen to fall.

When the tulip and narcluss bulbs

are planted in the beds, the surface

of the soil should be loosened after

each rain and the bed kept free from

weeds. In the late fall an early winter

It is well to cover the beds with

a light mulch of straw or leaves, to

prevent injury from alternate freezing

and thawing. This much should

be gradually removed In spring when

the growth appears above the ground.

If the soli Is well drained, the bulbs

will not be Injured by severe cold.

Under suitable conditions, tulip and

narcissus plants will Increase from

year to year. The bulbs, therefore,

may be left in the ground for two or

three seasons until the clumps begin

to crowd. It Is then desirable to transplant

them. This should be done from

BIX to eight weeks after the spring

blossom In order to allow the foliage

to die down partially. The bulbs

should be lifted with a spade or fork

aud after the soil has been shaken

from the roots, stored in a cool, shady

place. When the old leaves and roots

are thoroughly dry, they may be

rubbed off and the clusters of bulbs

divided. These bulbs may be planted

as the original bulbs were. In this

way within a few years a stock of

bulbs Is very considerably increased.

Ten thousand arctlcles have been

contributed for the Masonic Fair already,

although it does not open until

Oct. H.

And according to the men In

charge of tho fair many of the gifts

are coming not from tho Masons

themselves and the Protestants of the

city, but from the Roman Catholics

of Kalamaoo. That shows the spirit

of co-operation which has been evidenced

so far by the men of the city.

The Masons are giving generously, but

not all of them have been approached

yet. One of the greatest satisfactions

of the entire campaign, according to

$he workers, is that that few—eight

ten—who at. first refused to have

anything to do with the Masonic Fair

and refused to make any contributions,

are now of their own accord

without further Invitation, sending In

contributions to swell the success of

the Fair.

To Raise $25,000.

The aim of the committee Is to raise

>25.000 on the debt of the beautiful

Masonic Temple-

The Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias

and Elks, as well aa many other

Socal fraternal orders, are to be united

,to help and will be assigned various

nights on which they are to take

charge of the Fair and help the Ma-

Vons. To Rave Shrtners Night,

The opening night of the two week's

fair October 11. is to be Shriners*

nlglit. On that night Shriners from

this part of the state are invited to

fce here. The Salladln Patrol with 100

men In it, will be here from Grand

•Rapids. The men will appear in Arab

Costume. Then too, the band of the

Salladln Temple, with 43 pieces will

: l)e here. The Patrol will give a drill

!jn front of the Temple Monday night

'and then take part in a parade with

'all the other Shriners who are here

ifor the occasion. They will then go

fjto the Fair in a body.

All day today—the Masonic Fair

headquarters has held open house for

the Shriners, who are here for the big

Kleld day. Punch and cigars have been

Served all the guests.
