New York. Aug. 19. Eighty-five men

Woman Gives an Exhibition
Root, nee Bostrom, Wlio Kept
Her Engagement bet-ret.
The following day indirectly.
through mutual friends, the bride's
relatives learned of the marriase. By
this time Mr. and Mrs. Root were at
Maple Hill where they had planned to
spend a few days camping and fish
ing with friends. They are there at
present. Mr. Root is on a vacation.
Their return Is expected some time
this week. Thy will make their
home at 1417 Kansas avenue, where
preparations for housekeeping have
been made by the groom. The out
side of the house has been decorated
with appropriate mottos by the
friends of the young couple.
Xone of the relatives of either can
understand why the engagement had
been kept secret as there would have
been no objections to the marriage.
The bride Is the daughter of C. J.
Bostrom. employed in the Santa Fe
blacksmith shos. She is also the
niece of Mrs. C. F. Gustafson of 229
Western avenue. She has been keep
ing house for the family. Her
mother is dead.
Her sister is employed as a tester
by the Continental Creamers' com
pany. The bride's chum. Miss Hazel
Richter. of 119 Topeka avenue, works
for the same company. From Miss
Richter, Miss Bostrom first heard of
her sister's marriage.
"I never suspected that my sister
and Mr. Root were going to be
married when they did, although I
thought it was possible that they
might be engaged, as at one time
Hilda threw out a strong hint that
she might not be at home much
longer," said Miss Bostrom to a
visitor this morning.
"Just the other evening we were
sitting on the porch and chatting.
Hilda was planning what she would
do after her return home from the
fishing trip and never said a word j
about getting married. Monday '
evening she told me she was going to
the band concert. Mr. Root came af
ter her and they left the house. I
went to the concert also but did not
ses her there. She came home from
the concert and merely said she had
enjoyed the music.
"The next morning she left for
Maple Hill where she was to join a
fishing party. That noon Hazel
Richter. my chum, said she wanted to
to talk to me. She looked very ser
ious. We left our friends and then
she told me that my sister had mar
ried Mr. Root the evening before and
that she had informed her mother
about it just before she went on the
fishing trip with the request that
father and I should be told. I was
much surprised because she had not

west snorts have begun in earnest in
connection with Frontier Day cele

MORE CATTLE FOR WICHITA.
Changed Ruling of State Commissioner
Makes It Possible.
Wichita. Kan., Aug. 19. After a
thorough investigation of the situation
at the stock yards in this city. State
Live Stock Comrr.iss:oner Mercer chang
ed his recent ruling concerning the
handling of cattlo from provisional ter
ritory in Oklahoma and the Panhandle,
and it is again possible for the stock
men of Wichita to handle these cat
tle. As a result of this ruling hun
dreds of carloads of cattle will be
handled here that otherwise would go
to points cut of the state.
Mr. Mercer made a ruling in June
that cacti coming from "provisional"
territory that had not been dipped ac
cording to the Kansas law, could not
be unloaded in clean pens in Wichita
and soid here, though they could be
unloaded and fed. and then shipped
elsewhere. This ruling went into ef
fect about three weeks ago ana it was
soon seen that it was a discrimination
in favor of points east of Kansas, where
the ca:tie were taken, sold and re
turned to the state.
There is a certain territory in Okla
homa and Texas that is considered
neither absolutely "clean" nor infected
territory. This is called "provisional"
territory and lies between the fever j
zone and the "clean" territory. It is
the cattle from this territory that were
affected by the ruling which has now

Garden City, Kan., Aug. 19. About
one year ago there was a road through
the sand hills south of Garden City
that was practically impassable for
heavy loads except with extra help to
drag the wagons tnrougn. the sand. A
walk of a mile through the sand in
that road was far more tiresome to a
man accustomed to walking than a 20
mile jaunt along good roads.
At the present time a walk along this
very same road is no more tiresome nor
more difficult than a walk over the best
country road in the United States. The
roadway is as firm and smooth and
hard as a boulevard and it stands
heavv traffic. Some years ago the
county commissioners oiled a part of
the sand hills road. This stretch is a
mile long and was done as an experi
ment. For months this was the only
passable stretch of road through the
sand hills region. The road was oiled
and dragged, but it required a constant
expense for oiling and dragging.
Was Built as a Sample I toad.
A government engineer and sand hill
road expert, W. L. Spoon, went to Gar
den City and drove out through a part
of the sand hills. He told the people of
Garden City that he could build a road
through the big hills that would be bet
ter than any other road in the county
and it would not cost much. Spoon
superintended the construction of one
eighth of a mile of gypsum clay road
that proved so successful that the en
tire seven miles through the sand hills,
except that part that has been oiled, is
made of the gypsum clay materials.
This gypsum clay is a deposit found
in great quantities in the hills. It is a
clay bank but clay In which there is
a great amount of gypsum. The clay
is taken out when dry and Is in the
form of a grainy dirt, something quite
similar in appearance to the top dress
ing of esphalt as the pavement is be
ing laid. The first step In sand hills
road building is to scoop out a ditch.
the width the road is to be. The sand
is removed to a depth of eighteen
inches or two feet. Then this trough is
filled with the gypsum clay. If pos
sible it is well to have a good rain or
water on this clay before it is used or
much work done on it arter tne ciay
is put down.
When wet the clay is easily mashed
and ground down until it forms a per
fectly smooth and waterproof surface,
exactly as an oiled macadam road.
After being mashed down and thor
oughly cut the road is then dragged,
harrowed, dragged some more and har
rowed and dragced still more. Showers
help a great deal building the road, as
rain keeps the clay moist and pliable
while the work goes on.
Crude Oil Is Used as a Binder.
After the roadway is harrowed and
dragged thoroughly and is nearly
smooth it is rolled. Then a light top
dressing of sand less than half an incr.
thlcK is put on ana men comes tne
cheapest of crude oil, a thin coat, just
enough to amalgamate the sand parti
cles and hold them together.
This road is now as hard and nice for
motoring as any road to be found In
the nest. There is no north and south
railroad in the 'Western end of the state.
A great deal of hauling in necessary for
the country south of Garden City. That
sand hills road has been the bane of all
freighters. Often they made long de
tours to avoid it. Across the prairies
south of Garden City the freighters
drive anywhere. There are few roads.

But the sand hill road was like a moun

through it or make a detour of many
miles. Now that the road is comDleted

ness because of its ease of access
through this road.

He gave his attention for years to

New York, Aug. 19. The mysteri
ous circumstances under which Mrs.
H. E. H. Benedict, wife for less than a
year of a prominent music instructor,
was found unconscious in her home in
the exclusive Park Slope section of
Brooklyn, are puzzling the police. Mrs.
Benedict is in a hospital unconscious
and for only a moment has she been
able to speak and then hot in any way
to dissipate the mystery.
For seve.ral days the neighbors had
observed that the windows and front
door of the Benedict home had been
open, that neither Mr. Benedict or his
wife had been seen, and that no one
responded to the ringing of the door
bell. The neighbors discussed , the
matter until it was decided to inform
the police, and then two officers went
to the house and found it open as it
had been for a number of days and
nights. The first and second floors
were deserted and the furniture and
fittings were in disorder. Rugs were
piled in corners, cnairs were Knocked
over and cabinets sprawling on the
floor. In a third floor bedroom, the
police found Mrs. Benedict lying on
the floor under the bed. only- her feet
protruding. The woman was half
dressed and was unconscious. An am
bulance surgeon thought that Mrs.
Benedict had been without food for
several days, but was unable to say
why she was unconscious, as, appar
ently, there were no marks of violence.
Efforts to find Mr. Benedict have so
far failed. One neighbor said he was
seen leaving the house five days before
his wife was found, in company with a
younger man and carrying a suit case.
Surgeons are endeavoring to restore
Mrs. Benedict to consciousness, in the
hope that she can explain the mystery

Court Holds Tliat Bank Cashier Was

Louisville. Aug. 19. The Kentucky
court of appeals has handed down a
decision in favor of a casualty com

policy exempted the company from lia

from the safe by felonious entry by use
of tools or explosives. In the case In
point the cashier of the bank was
forced by the robbers to open the safe
at the point of a gun, and the bank
sought to collect from the Insurance
company, holding that the contract
was complied with because the cashier
was in a sense the tool of the burglars.
The court admitted that this point was
correct, but held that the term "tool"
was different from that involved In the
