The bert nwd «|rtfcke«t war i« Wbr Tormer Mme. Gould Collects Insldes of Watches and Her Books Stir Comment. Paris, Nov. 9.—Friends of Princess de Sagan are perturbed by two eccentricities she has lately developed. One is the collecting of the fnsides of old watches. She has collections in Lon­ don.'Parl.s and TIenna buying them. It is I)elievcd she Intends to have these Insldes of watches made into ornaments sjch as necklacen, bangles, and wnst ornaments, and hope.i to start a fad. Another of her curious ta.stes Is alleged to. be the laying In of a supply of books. Buch as are refused hospitality in the United States mail. She is said to have Irangfat a Byron library in the Rue Castigllone. Tfce Prince de- Sagan also has bought from fL shop .In the IJanhonrg ilontmarte. which makes a ipedalty of books of a etitftln e!«M. On next Sunday a foot ball game wiil he play^ at Electric park be tween the Triplets and the Burlington team. The Burlington team~is one of the fastest In this part of the state and is among the very few that has the :herve to face the locals. Yester day with three substiutes in the game Burlington held Clvinute on ihc lat ter's grounds to three touchdowns, and one of these was a "fluke." Their average weight is about 167 pounds. Because Parsons cancelled the game scheduled and because it was impos sible to get an open date with a team that didn't have "cold feet," there was no game played at Electric park yesterday afternoon. The big score of 9.S to 0 which the Triplets plied up on the bunch from Independence one week ago'-has made It almost impossible to get games Over the long distance phone last Sat urday, the foot hall manager of neighboring city upon being asked If he would bring his team here for game Sunday, replied: "And play the Triplets! Not us." .Managers who had not heard of (he Triplets would agree to come only to call up after investigating the record of the locals, and call off the game. An effort Is being made to secure a special train i:o bring the Burlington players and rooters here next Sun daj'. Over two hundred rooters will accompany the team. The special will arrive here about 12 o'clock over ihe Katy. Texas Lands.

LE.\D IP 16 THE TOX. Phenomenal Adrance FolIow.s Bepah< lioan Sneecss at Polls. Galena, Nov. 9.—The last week in the Kansas-Missouri zinc and lead mining district was marked by an un- precedpnted advance in price of Ihe latter mineral. Coming as it did after many weeks of inactivity on the part of buyers, during whlcH time tJie price was extremely weak, the advance of $(*> ])er tori on lead has created new interest and hope among the producers. Tbc price ha3 been so un.'tat- isfactory that several thousand tons were al'ovfed to accumulate, but the usual wi:<^ rush to sell was not apparent. Wlhlle a considerable quantity of the surplus was sold at the advance most of the ore is being held for still greater profits. The lead ore market opened at last week's price of $54, hut by Saturday the price had advanced to $tin. Almost immediately following the news of Republican success in the election there was also an advance in price of zinc ore. the principal product of the district, and the first offers of the week were $37.50 per ton, of GO per cent mineral, an advance of $1 over quotations of the previous iwesk. The advance in basis price was gradual and at the close of the.week the top price for best grades ha^ advanced to $40, tho highest paid in the district in many weeks. Prospects for securing protection against Mexican importations apparently had an immediate effect as- soon as the election returns told of Republican sucess. INCREASE IN WORLDS COTTON. Exceeds by 2,340,000 Bales Production of the Previous Year. WaBhlngton, Nov. 9.—The world's production of cotton for mill consumption during the year ending August 31, 190C<. exceeded by 2.340,000 bale.i the praduction of the^ previous year, according to the census 'bureau's report on the supply and distribution of cotton.

Alexander the Great was being shown the Gordian Knot. "It can't be untied," tho^Mold him; "every man who tried to do it fell down." But Alexander war> not discouraged because the rest had flunked. . He simply realized that he would have to go at it in a different way. And instead of wasting time with hi:^ fingers he drew his sword and slaslied it apart. Every day a great bii:^iiie.-,3 general \?, .^hown some knot which has proven too much for liis competitors, and he succeeds because he finds a way to cut it. The fumbler has no show so Icing as there is a brother merchant who doesn't waste time trying to accomplish the impossible—^who takes lessons from the failures about him and avoids the methods which were their downfall, , The knottiest problems in trade are: 1 — The problem of location, 2—The problem of getting the crowds, 3 — The problem of keeping the crowds, 4 — The problem of minimizing fixed expenses. S—The problem of creating a valuable good will. None of these.knots is going to be untied by fumbling fingers. They are too complicated. They're all involved together—^twisted and entangled over and about each other—so intertwined that they can't be solved singly—^like the Gordian Knot they must be cut through at one stroke. And you can't cut the knot with any sword except the newspaper—because: 1—A store that is constantly before the people makes its own neighborhood, 2 — Crowds can be brought from anywhere by daily advertising, 3-^Customers can always be held by induce' ments, 4—Fixed expenses can only he reduced by in- ereanng the volume of sales, S—Good will can only be created through publicity. . Advertising is breeding new giants every year and making them more powerful every hour. Publicity is the sustaining food of a powerful store and the only strengthening nourishment for a weak one. The retailer who delaj^s his entry into advertising must pay the penalty of his procrastination by facing more giant competitors as evei;y month of opportunity slips by. Personal ability as a close purchaser and as a clever seller doesn't count for a hang so long as other men are equally well posted and wear the sword of publicity to boot. They are able to tie your business into constantly closer knots, w^hile you cannot retaliate because therd is no knot which their advertising cannot cut for them. Yesterday you lost a cu.stomer—today they took one—^tomorrow they'll get another. You cannot cope with their competition because you haven't the weapon wiih which to oppose it. You can't untie your Gordian Knot because it can't be untied —you've got to cut it. You must become an advertiser or you must pay the penalty of incompetence. You not only require the newspaper to fight for a more hopeful tomorrow, but to keep today's situation from becoming hopeless. (Copyright, 190S, by Tribune Company, Chlcaeo.) NO CHOLERA Manila is Over.—Only One Case Since November 1. Manila, Nov. 9.—The Merchants as^ sociatlon of this city has issued the following statement: "Manila Is reported by the health authorities to be practically free from cholera.
