making a final effort to break the
deadlock over the ship purchase bill
before giving up the fight and passing
to the appropriation bills. With the

when it was started a month ago, the
outlook for the bill is gloomy. .It is
reported that the president is now
making no effort to prevent the bill

Just ten years ago today Mr. Mar-;

of the city, naming it The Variety

From a "variety store" it has evolv evolved
ed evolved into a department store of consid considerable
erable considerable size, and nearly all of the
goods sold there at its beginning have
been eliminated in the present scheme.
Today there are separate departments
for dry goods, ladies ready made
goods and men's furnishings. The
latter department has only within the
past few months been dignified by an
entirely separate room from the
others, and tho business for
months has been "off," this line has
accounted for itself in good shape at
the close of each day's sales.
The gradual rise of Mr. Frank
from a small merchant to one of the
leaders in his line has been watched
with much interest and pleasure by
his friends, many of whom are today
congratulating him upon the success
he has achiever.
No small part of the success of
Frank's is due to the constant and
persistent use of printer's ink, he be being

that commodity in the city. He has
