Eureka, Kan., Nov. 6. Last night this
community was startled to learn that O.
O. Crookham, a prominent and -wealthy
farmer living about beven miles east of
this city, had accidentally shot himself
vvhilc out hunting. The accident occurred
at 12:30 p. m. Ho was pulling the gun
muzzle first toward him, when the ham
mer struck a limb, which resulted in the
entire charge of shot entering his body
just above the navel, and lodging in his
stomach. He did not know just how long
ho remained unconscious, but when he
came to his right mind he found his
clothes on lire. He crawled to a creek, a
distance of fifty vards, and put the fire out,
and then managed to crawl as much furth
er to the railroad. He then took out his
pocketbook and money and laid them on
the ground, and then on a slip of paper
wrote how and when the accident occurred.
At 4 p. in. a passenger train came along,
and the unfortunate man signaled the con
ductor, who stopped the train, and two of
the passengers volunteered to get off and
care for the wounded man. He was taken
to his home, which was but a short dis
tance, and Dr. Pierce of this city, tel"
eraphod for, who arrived there within an
hour after i he man was found. He lived
until l:8d thib morning, passing away very
Mr. Crookham was one of the best of cit
izens, and his tragic death will be mourned
by hundreds of people all over this com
munity. He leaves a wifo and bix chil
dren, who mourn his death; but who are
left plenty of this world's goods. Mr.
Crookham at the time of his death was
worth $25,000 or $30,000; besides, his life
was in-ured for ?7,000. The burial will
take place from the home tomorrow at 10
o'clock a. in.

A WOULD-BE SEDUCER KILLED.
KANSAS CITY, Nov. D. A Greever,
the well known cattle dealer of this city,
was shot and fatally wounded by Charles
Clifford, a New York traveling salesman,
at the hotel Andrews. Greever had paid
considerable attention "to Mrs. Clifford,
and her husband suspected that their re
lations were not entirely innocent. Ho
absented himself from his apartments this
afternoon to give Greever an opportunity
4o call upon Mrs.. Clifford. He secreted
himself across the street, saw Greever
enter the hotel, and after waiting a few
moments, he proceeded to his apartments
and tried the door. It was locked. He
crawled out of the hall window onto a
balcony, and proceed by it to a window,
which ho entered. Ho tried the door lead
ing into his parlor, and that was also
locked. He heard a bcufille and beseech
ing cries lrom his wife, and then heard tho
key turned in the door. He burst into the
room and demanded an explanation. Mrs.
Clifford cxnlained that Greever had made
insulting proposals to her, and that she
was struggling to freo herself from his
embrace when her husband appeared.

tho liveryman across the street to hitch up
my team to a buggy. I said I would be
back in .five minutes. I called for Mrs.
Hall at the hotel. She was gone. Mrs.
Clifford called me into her bedroom, hav
ing she would find Mrs. Hall for me. She

know it, and it is her duty to have tho

COSTUMES FOR YOUNG GIRLS.
Dress Them in "VThlte it Ton "Want to
Make Them Doubly Attraetire.
"White is for brides," runs that very
plaintive song concerning the woes of
"Miss July Anne Jo," and it's also the
thing for a girl to wear during her baby
hood and childhood, and all along through
those intervening years when school claims
her attention, and she is not ready yet for
the glory of her white tulle debut frock.
"Always dress a young girl in white," says
a dressmaker. "Here is an entire costume
in which a girl, whether she be pretty or
ugly, short or tall, is sure to look more
fresh and girlish than in any color I know
It was cashmere flannel of a warm cream
white that brings out the faintest tint of
peachy pink cheeks and shiny lights in
youthful tresses. The skirt was laid in
fan box plaits, narrow and fiat at the
waist, and widening and standing slightly
out at the hem, that just reached the ankles.
Though the waist fitted snugly all stiff,
straight lines wero relieved by having the
front laid from the shoulders down across
the bust in soft plaits, folding kerchief
wi" over & tiny white surah vest.
Olmilar folds trimmed the back, drawing
to a narrow point at the waist, where a full
flannel sash, finished in knotted silk fringe,
was fastened in a double bow over the
waist tails and fell in draperies to the heels.
Leg o' mutton sleeves and a high collar
gave this little frock a dressy effect that
made it suitable for dinners at home, but
the wearer should arrange her locks in a
full braid to hang down her back, and with
black silk stockings and black buckle slip
pers she is as pretty and gracious a figure
as her elder sisters in all the frills and fur
belows of full toilet
Xow for study hour and for a morning
gown "my pretty maid" will wear a white
basket flannel suit, made with a gathered
skirt that must not be too full, and above
the bottom hem, not over an inch deep,
should run at least ten rows of very narrow
silk braid laid a little over half an inch
apart. Blue gray is a pretty color for the
braid; it docs not fade or run if the dress is
washed. The waist should be a loose one
gathered into a belt that slips under the
skirt band, and in place of a high collar a
broad directoire plaiting of blue-gray china
silk forms a soft finish about the throat.
Under this runs a wide scarf of the silk
to knot under mademoiselle's pretty whito
chin, so that long floating loops and ends
will half conceal the closely set, tiny bullet
pearl buttons up the front. Have the
sleeves very full to the elbow, where a long
flannel cuff, trimmed with a turn back
plaiting of silk, frames the round blue
veined wrist, and a belt of blue-gray rib
bon with a long bow at the back will com
gleto this inexpensive costume. New York
The Greatest Divine Feat.
The greatest diving feat ever acldeved
was in moving the cargo of the ship Cape
Horn, wrecked off the coast of South
America, when a diver named Hooper
made seven descents to a depth of 201 feet,
remaining at one time forty-two minutes
under the water. Siebe states that the
greatest depth to which a man has been
known to descend will not exceed 210 feet,
which would be equivalent to a pressure of

ON THfc SONGO.
Sweet Bongo's charms by poets have been sun?,
Tho stand now on tha bankj of heavenly
But scarcely fairer those celestial shores
Than Songo'a splendors, shriaed in plctnred
See the bright river windinf: in and out,
Watch the red maples and the browning ehns,
Tho crimson sumach and the wiUons green.
Its woods art crowned with living diadems.
Beneath, the leaves that heap the shining sand
Take on the hues and shapes of India's shells.
In the rich depths below tree nods to tree.
Each its sweet story of the autumn tells,
Though these uprear their branches to the 6ky,
And those to answering skica and shades and
Now, fairy like, the doubling river turns
To where a cottage stands the yellow corn
Grows to the water's edge; old apple trees
With crooked elbows, their gray branches shorn
Of autumn fruitage, guard the mossy well.
And in a tiny bend a painted boat
Dips lazily, as move our lagging wheels,
While drifts of weblike algtr, all afloat,
Gleam like spun gold, and shaftlike shadows seem
Sea caves, like those of which old poets wrote.
Blue, dreamy Songol witching, winding stream I
Rich with the tinting born of flowers and dew,
Set thick with jewels which no mortal hand
Can prison, though they thread thy waters
Thy banks can match the charms of southern
Thy legends make the rocks interpreters,
Tny wild wood grace, thy shadow s and thy songs.
Thy pines, thy willowy reeds and stately firs
Give to the soub that seek them dreams of
And make of men more fervent worshipers.

Agriculture in Ancient China.
In 1100 B. C. the prime minister of tho
Emperor Wou-Weng, Tcheou-Kung, con
structed norias, or hydraulic machines of
simple design and working, by which
water was raised to a height to which it
had never been carried before, and made
reservoirs and canals for irrigation. Water
was conducted by means of machinery
from the wells to the dry hill tops, and
water provision was assured for times of
drought. Agriculture, in consequence,
Other measures of Tcheou-Kung com
prised the promulgation of laws respecting
the boundaries of properties and tho preven
tion of trespasses. The fields were divided
into squares called wells, from their re
semblance to the Chinese character signi
fying a well, surrounded and furrowed by
ditches so arranged that eight farmers,
each tilling his own tract, united in culti
vating the ninth, interior tract, which be
longed to the state, and the produce of
which paid their rent.
The system succeeded to a marvel. Each
tenant was proprietor of about fifteen
acres, the whole product of which be
longed to him, while tho stato was really
proprietor of the whole, and nud as a land
lord the income of the ninth tract. Be
sides this each farmer had some 3,3.7)
square metres of ground for his farm yard
and his mulberry trees.
Thus ho always enjoyed a surplus of pro
visions, of pork and poultry for food, and
silk for clothing. No ono at this time was
richer or poorer tnan another, .nt a com
plete social equality exis'ed.anJevrrv one.
