Second Incendiary Fire in Sing

The blaze started in the clothing

It was the second fire in the prison
buildings this week, notwithstanding
the fact the guards had been doubled
since $150,000 worth of property was de

Although it was generally believed
the fires were started by convicts, the

was taken to guard against the secape
of convicts. While the guards and the
"trusties" were fighting the flames,
more than a thousand prisoners locked
in their cells, raised a chorus of yells
that sounded high above the noise of
the alarm. The men at work in the
building were marched out in good or

Warden Clancy attributed the recent
disturbance among the convicts to an
order for the transfer of some of them
to the state prison at Auburn. Most
of - the prisoners at Sing Sing come
from New Tork city and object to
being sent up state, where their friends
will find it difficult to visit them.
It was this element that led the
mutiny yesterday which at first prom

FIFTY EAGER BOYS.
Meet for Final Instruction Regarding
Going Into Camp.
At least sixty Topeka boys will be
given a ten day outing at the old

of Berryton, beginning next Monday.
They will be taken from the Central

o'clock on that day, a number of To

donated the use of their machines.
There was never a more happy and
excited bunch of kiddies 50 of them
than were seated in a group this
morning in the office of the Y. M. C.
A.. They ranged in age from 10 to
15 or 16. It was difficult for them to
refrain from expressing aloud their
delight while De Witt Lee, the boys'
secretary, was giving them final in
structions relative to what to take
along to the camp in the way of bed
ding, camp utensils, etc. Time after
time it was necessary to call for or

the boys Mr. Lee said: "There's an
other thing I want you to bring. What
do you think it is?"
"An electric fan," shouted out one
About the same time this question
was asked by a small boy with big
excited eyes: "How many fish is they
in the creek?"
When the kiddies were told that
they would be conveyed to the camp

Many of them have never ridden in a
The boys were asked to bring their
own bedding, table ware, towels, etc.
They were all given particular in

brush and a cake ef soap.
The thing that is now worrying the,
management of the association is that
they may not be .able to take all the
boys that are eager to experience
their first taste of camp life. Several
of the boys who expect to go to the
camp were not able to atend the meet

that a dozen or more youngsters will
apply to go along between now and
next Monday. If the good people of

The engagement of Miss Mary Saw
yer, the daughter of Mr. and jMrs.
Thomas O. Sawyer of McPherson, and
Mr. Cyrus Monroe Is announced to
day. The news Is of unusual interest to
many Topeka people, and particularly
the college set, on account of the
popularity of Miss Sawyer and Mr.
Monroe In Washburn.
Miss Sawyer graduated from Wash
lrn in 1912, and later took a course
in the State Agricultural college, Man
hattan. She is a member of the Sigma
Delta Psi sorority and one of the pret
tiest and most charming of the out of
town girls who come to Topeka to
visit. Since her graduation she has
been the guest of friends in the city
frequently, and each time has added to
her list of acquaintances.
Mr. Monroe also finished college in
1912, and graduated from the law
school last spring. He is a member
of the Phi Delta- Theta fraternity of
Washburn, Kansas .Beta chapter, and
he belongs also to the Alpha Kappa
Phi law fraternity. In his college
career he was actively engaged in
various, student enterprises and was
one of the popular men of the school.
He is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee
Monroe of 909 Harrison street. His
parents are both lawyers, and he is
following the tradition of the family
by engaging in the same profession,
and is now practicing law with his
father in the firm, Monroe, Roark.Mc
Clure & Monroe. His mother has long
been active in club work of the state,
and a leader in the "woman move
ment" that has resulted in the en
franchisement of Kansas women.
The approaching marriage of Miss
Sawyer and Mr. Monroe is the cul
mination of one of the many college
romances that have been "exposed"
and "taken" in the "shadow of the
pines" on beautiful Washburn campus.
The exact date of the wedding has
not been determined, but It will prob
ably be some time in October. The
young couple will make their home in
Topeka. and will occupy apartments
at 512 Harrison street.
