REPORT TO THAT EFFECT
Items of Interest About Differ
There is a well defined rumor current
in railroad circles to the effect that the
Rock Island is soon to abolish its pas
senger station here and use that of the
Frisco. The change is said to be the re
sult of the visit by Rock Island officials
paid "Wichita about one month ago. The
most of the time spent here by the offi
cials was in an inspection of both the
Rock island and Frisco stations.
When seen yesterday a prominent
Frisco official said, in regard to the ru
mor: "I think it hardly probable that
such a change is contemplated. Of
course I know no more about the matter
than you do, except what I have heard,
I have my opinion of the fact that the
Frisco station, while adequate to the
needs of that company, would be entirely
too small for the use of both."
Rumor has it that the change will be
effective by July 1. Another thing that
sustains the report of such a consolida
tion is that the Rock Island and Frisco
have had connecting tracks built at both
the north and south entrances to the city,
STRIKE IS THREATENED.
Missouri Pacific Operators Want More
It was reported yesterday that there is
a threatened strike on among telegraph
operators in the employ of the Missouri
Pacific system all over the country who
are members of me Order of Railway
A report yesterday said that the strike
was set for 9 o'clock of that morning.
It did not materialize, however, although
it is still expected that the strike may
occur at any time.
The cause of the strike is said to be a
demand for more wages. The operators
ask 555 as a minimum salary and extra
pay for overtime on Sunday. At present
the minimum scale of wages is $50 per
month and no extra pay for Sunday.

Bleckley Talks About
E. E. Bleckley, traveling passenger
agent for the Missouri Pacific of this city.
returned yesterday from a ten days' visit
in St. Louis, where he attended a meet
ing of thirty or forty agents from that
road. The meeting was held for the pur
pose of discussing some very important
questions concerning the passenger busi
ness. The Missouri Pacific agents are
also attending the dedications of the vari
ous state buildings. Col. Bleckley said
that this time they attended the dedica
tion of the Texas building.
He said that he had the best and most
enjoyable time he ever had in his life.
The Chicago fair was a very small thing
in comparison with the St. Louis show,
according to his opinion, and he should
be able to say, as he saw both of them.
He told of the many beautiful buildings
with their inimitable architectural finish.
These must be wonders of art and genius
for Col. Bleckley could not find words to
paint their beauty, and everybody knows
what a vocabulary a traveling passenger
agent has. But lie did not get to sec half
of what he wished to see. He was there
about a week and, in his estimation, one
can only see the beginning of the fair in
"All of the exhibits are not yet in
place," explained Col. Bleckley, "but they
are ready to be put in and everything will
be in its proper position by June -0. There
is more now than one can possibly see in
four weeks time and as there are a great
many exhibits yet to be installed there
is no way of concluding just how long
it will require to go through the whole
Col. Bleckley took especial care not to
forget to describe many of the fine build
ings, and the Pike he depicted with all
the grandeur of a poet. For one solid
mile there is nothing but Pike. All kinds
of shows, but nothing except perfectly
clean and moral exhibitions. There are
sights there to see that are equal to a
trip around the world. To scenes of pleas
ure and fun there is no end.
When Col. Bleckley was asked when ho
considered the best time to go, he said
that he would advise the public to go
while the thing is yet fresh and the
weather is not sultry and hot. Ho said
that people aro now wearing light over
coats in St. Louis. He also said that in
June the fair would be in the height of
its glory and everything could be Fcen at
its best. The weauier will not be so ery
hot and the exhibhions will be new.
There will not be one single thing unfin
ished by June 10, and every exhibit will
To talk with Col. Bleckley about the
trip is almost as good as if one had been
there. .But the thought of the fair and
all of the wonderful things to be seen
there makes one almosa heartsick, for
there are very few people who do not
want to attend, and there are still fewer
who will not take the opportunity and go.

FRIENDS ANNUAL CONTEST
Miss Hazel Howes Is Awarded
In spite of rain and storm Fairmount
chapel was crowded last night to Its ut
most capacity. The senior class play was
the attraction. Heretofore the class- day
exercises have been original in character
and full of local hits. This year the
class decided to cut loose from tradition,
by presenting a Shakespeare burlesque,
called the "Shakespeare Water Cure."
This play has been given in eastern col
leges with great success. Its presenta
tions by the Fairmount seniors last eve
ning received a most favorable reception.
JttJach part was well chosen; the cos
tumes were excellent. Much credit for
the success of the play is due to the
untiring energy and ability of Mrs. Win
nifred W. Metcalf, who has charge of
the department of expression In the col

sermon hfiforo the graduating class of

this evening, is the young and eloquent
pastor of the historic Central Congrega
tional 'church of Hartford, Conn. The
church was founded by the first settlers
of Connecticut in the year 1633, was or
ganized at Dorchester, near Boston, Mass.
by these founders of the state of Con
necticut before they set out on their one
hundred and fifty mile tramp through the
forests primeval. The descendents of
those heroic builders of a commonwealth
form a part of the great congregation to
which Dr. Potter ministers each Sunday.
The membership is larger than that of
any other Congregational church in Con
necticut, and includes much of the wealth
of that charming New England capital.
In connection with the baccalaureate
address a very fine musical program will
be rendered by students of the Fairmount
college school of music.
These services will begin at 8 o'clock
in the following order:

THE FIRST HAIR-SAVER.
Newbro's Horplclde is the first "Halr-Savcr " It was
not made until the ralcroblc, and contaslous .nature of truo
dandruff was discovered. Before this discovery, ap
proaching baldness was considered inevitable, and after it
came the scalp was treated with tincture of canthartdos
(made from dried blistering bugs) and other irritants to
make tho hair "grow." Every dermatologist now recog

SENIOR CLASS PLAT.
The scene in the senior play is land in a
water cure establishmeat where several
of Shakespeare's principal characters are
staying for various reasons. Lady Mac
beth appears first, looking like a walking
arsenal, and hewails the unhappy fate of
herself and her husband who are com
pelled to remain In that wretched estab
lishment on account of the unfortunate
prejudice against them in Scotland. They
are broke, It seems, and must have
money. Shylock, a dealer In old clothes
comes up and she strikes him for three
thousand ducats for three months. He
refuses to lend her a sum, but offers to
give her tho desired amount if she will
kill Bassanler, who Is now serving a sen
tence on Klockwell's island. He explains
his sanguinary desire by saying, "for
sooth I must desire just Portia to be my
wedded wife," and follows up with a
semi-soliloquy in a highly tragic style
and a deeply bass voice. The lady ac
cepts his offer, and summons her husband
who Is down on the program as "sulky
and henpecked," -and turns the job over
to him. Ho demurs, matces quite a play
of vortuous reluctance, but finally con
sents In bearing the price to be received
for the work, and that Shylock has given
a hundred shares of Orient stock as se
curity. Thus enceth the lirst act.
In the second act Juliet Is discovered,
bewailing her unhappy marriage, for it
seems that she and her husband have
been disowned by both their houses, and
Romeo forced to take to the stage for a
living. He comes in and, after a very
entertaining little family quarrel, he gives
Antony's speech over the body of Caesar,
with Sunday variations, ending with a
collection for the benctit of th remains.
As he leaves, the orchestra strikes up a
dirge and in comes Hamlet in a suit of
solemn black, carrying a grewsome look
ing 5kull in his hand. This difficult part
is very well taken by Mr. Flndly. the
college orator. After soliloquizing and
conversing with Mrs. Montogue for a f?w
minutes he departs In search of Ophelia.
The next to enter is Portia, who Is sup
posed to carry the dignity of the cla5n or.
her shoulders, and right well dots she
do It. She. too. It seems, has been un
fortunate in her marriage, and she won-:
