Senators Make It Dead Letter
in Second Class Cities.
Measure Slips Thru Upper
House Without Opposition.
The sacred recall has been tam
pered with. In a moment of mental
aberration, or when the senate was
shootingr thru bills with only what
consideration was possible from listen
ing to the "once, over" by the reading
clerk, senators passed a bill com
pletely nullifying the recall in its ap
plication to cities cf the second class.
The bill was introduced by Senator
Smith, of Cowley county, and was to
cover a situation in Arkansas City
where two candidates for mayor have
almost dammed up the Arkansas riv
er with the mud they have thrown at
Following the passage of the Smith
bill, and it has been passed by the
senate without opposition, the recall
is a dead letter in second class cities ;
such as Arkansas City. Every voter
who signs a petition asking for the
recall of an official must go before an
officer authorized to administer an
oath and swear that he voted for the
candidate, that he knows the contents
of the petition and that he wishes to
have the official recalled.
A Stringent Law.
Twenty-five per cent of the persons
who voted for and aided in tl e elec
tion of the city official must do this.
Under the old law the voter who
signed a petition for recall, by so do
ing, stated that he voted for the of
ficial sought to have recalled and that
he knew the contents of the petition.
But he did not have to sign an oath
to that effect. One person on each
petition was required to make oath
that the signatures were bona fide,
but that . was all the swearing re
quired. Under the amended act, if 2,000
people voted for and elected a can
didate for mayor, for instance. 500 of
them would have to go individually
' before an oath-making officials and
swear to a statement to the ettect tnat
they voted for the official.
A vision of 500 voters or any num
ber of voters in any town doing that
is not easily raised
Texas Kills "Dry" Bill.
Austin, March 1. The Texas house

A Youthful Associate Judge.
Isador Schletter of Passaic, ,N. J.,
is no doubt the youngest associate
judge in the United States, and he has
attained to this high position without
having been inside a law school as a
student. Young Schletter is but six
teen years old, and this is the way he
happened to be made an associate
( judge of the court of which Judge
had had his "bike stolen and De
tective B. F. Turner had recovered it
for him. Captain Turner discovered
that the boy was remarkably bright
and that he had earned and saved
$800 which he had wisely invested
thru a keen knowledge of how to do
so. Captain Turner introduced the
boy to Judge Costello who believed
that young Schletter could be made
helpful in the juvenile court presided
over by Judge Costello. The judge
said to the boy: "See here, boy,
wouldn't you like to come here and
tell some of the wayward boys with
whom I have to deal how to do and
to be better and what it means to go
ahead and do right ? Also, I would
like to have you tell them something
aboj-t how you have succeeded-. It
might do them good."
So it is that young Schletter has
acquired the title of "Assistant Judge"
to a real judge and it is certain that
he can be helpful to other boys. The

Barn Belonging to J. Stagg Destroyed

A large barn belonging to J. Stagg,
a farmer living near Valencia was de
stroyed by fire between 1 and 2 o'clock
this morning. The barn was filled
with large quantities of valuable feed.
Nighbors of Stagg suspected an in
cendiary origin of the blaze, and tele

The fire marshal and Sheriff Hugh
Larimer went to Valencia this morn
ing and found evidences that the fire
had been set with deliberate intent.
The trail of a man was discovered
leading away from the barn. The sher

Dioodhounds to track the fire "bug."
CITY JAIL IS EMPTY
For First Time in Years There's Xot
a Prisoner Behind Bars.
For the first time in years, the city
jail of Topeka is empty. The heavy,
clanging doors are swinging outward
and the fumigators, interrupted Wed
nesday morning when an alleged wife
deserter was brought in, are making
up for lost time.
If the fumigators are permitted to
work uninterrupted until 6 o'clock, the
jail will not only be empty of human
beings for the first time in years, but
also of all other things having life.
For an hour, or two, the jail was em
pty Wednesday. Then Ollie Burns, an
alleged wife deserter, was picked up.
Burns has been removed to the county
jail. A wife desertion charge has been
placed against him and a warrant is
sued. Encased Postage Stamps.
New York City was the birthplace
of this peculiar sort of money, made
by putting United States postage
stamps in flat circular brass cases
with the faces protected by a thin
sheet of mica. The encased stamps
consisted of these denominations: 1,
3. 6, 10, 12. 24, 30 and 90 cent, 1862,
and this method of protecting the
stamps so they could withstand the
wear of circulation was the invention
of John Gault who was in business at
Park Place, N. Y. City.
Mr. Gault manufactured many
kinds to be used by business firms
in place of small change, as well as
the mutilated and worn postage
stamps used" for money at the begin
ing of the war. Many of the encased
stamps bore the name of the firm on
the reverse side, so that the currency
served to advertise the firm that is
Occasionally a subscriber asks us
in regard to these stamps and their
value. Our reply always is that they
are of considerable rarity and not in
frequently they command a big pre
mium. This is particularly true of
the 12, 24, 30 and 90 cent denomina
tions. These stamps are eagerly
sought for by collectors of both
stamps and coins, but especially the
former, and they fetch good prices
whenever offered at auction sales.
The American Boy. .
The Elusive Nickel.
Every boy knows how annoying it
is to drop something into a sidewalk
grating or between the cracks of a
sidewalk. And nearly all boys have
had such an experience at some time
or other, usually that something being
a favorite agate taw, a nickel for the
matinee, or some other boyish treas
ure. A simple remedy is generally at
hand in the form of a stick and a
piece of chewing gum or tar. Smear
the gum on the end of the stick and
then lower it into the hole or grat
ing; When the gum adheres to the
lost article all that is left to do is to
lift it out, I have had several occa
sions to use this idea and it has al-
ways worked fine. The American

Chairman of State Board
Control Quits Job Today.
Was Recently Elected
Mayor of Fort Scott.
Announcement was made today of
the resignation of W. E. Brooks as
chairman of the state board of con
trol. His resignation is effective im
mediately. Governor Capper stated
this afternoon that Brooks' successor
would be named early next week.
Brooks is a Hodges appointee and
a Democrat. He has been chairman
of the state board since 1913. Re
cently he was elected mayor of the
city of Fort Scott. Under the city
commission act, it is impossible for
him to hold both jobs. His term as
a member of the control board expired
February 24. With the recent passage
of the state manager bill, the board of
control will go out of business July I.
It is Governor Capper's purpose to
send to the senate the name of a new
member of the board who shall serve
during the remaining days of the
board. Members of the board of man
agers will probably be named in the
next few days and all outstanding an-
pointments will be cleaned up at that'i

At a meeting of the East Fourth

Wednesday evening it was decided
that a day will be set aside in the
near future for .the purpose of ad
vertising and boosting East Fourth
avenue. This will be held a little
later in the month when the spring
season opens. The merchants are
planning to entertain their customers
and the public at large at some cen
trally located place on East Fourth
avenue. On this day, special bar
gains will be given at the various
stores. A prize contest will also be
The plan of improving the connect
ing streets between Seward avenue and
Sardou avenue was brought up Wed
nesday night. Grattan street and Free
man avenue are being suggested as
the logical streets to be macadamized.
The changing of the Branner street
viaduct so that the approach will come
up Kline street was also discussed. It
is planned that the approach will come
up Klein street, and the bridge will
be built west to meet the approach
from that point. The approach on
the north side of the structure will
also be made less steep if present plans
are carried out.
A number of persons living in
Grantville who are interested in the
proposition of building a bridge over
the Kaw at that point were present
at the meeting.' A committee to con
fer with the people living in Grant
ville and in Oakland and with the
county commissioners of Shawnee and
Jefferson counties, on the proposed
bridge was appointed. C. C. Booher,
R. T. Kreipe and Joseph Bromich con
stitute the committee.
The association will meet again in
two weeks at the St. Charles hotel,
501 East Fourth avenue.

In a single day, McDaniel was trans
formed from the middle-aged alleged
lover and writer of passionate love let
ters to the pretty widow, to a business
man with a hotel on his hands. He
filed a suit for $388 against Mrs. Ran
som for work done in the hotel. Mean
time, Mrs. Ransom had come to To
peka and today a Shawnee county jury
in Judge Dana's division of the district
court is endeavoring to decide how
much labor McDaniel owed Mrs. Ran
som for the alleged love he bore her
and how much money Mrs. Ransom
owes McDaniel for the work he did for
her. The interesting case, interspersed
with love letters, witnesses testifying
to love declarations of McDaniel and
sharp retorts of Mrs. Ransom, a mat
ter of fact business woman, has been
in progress in Judge Dana's division
of the district court for two days.

mitted that she never saw such a will
ing worker in all her life. He aided
with the chamber work, swept the
floors, wiped the dishes, helped with
the laundry, despite her protests to
do nothing but drive the bus.
"Did he help you make the beds?"
asked A. A. Graham, attorney for Mc
Daniel. "At times, but I didn't want him to
and asked him not to," replied Mrs.
"Wasn't that an aid to you?"
"No. the beds he made were a dis
grace to me."
Then passionate love letters writ

were dropped in the mail box and re
ceived by Mrs. Ransom.
The Love Letters.
While not signed, witnesses testified
that they were written in McDaniel's
handwriting. Excerpts from the let
ters intrdouced as testimony, follow:

est rae of hope and don't cause me to
be cast out into outer darkness. I do
believe God will will it. 1 would de

McDaniel as bus driver and that bus

She- admitted that McDaniel worked
at all sorts of jobs in the hotel, but

HUSBAND AT BAT NOW
His Reply to Wife's Delinquency
r Charge a Suit for Divorce.
Mrs. Lena Bollock, wife of Joseph
Bollock, 1022 North Madison street,
did most of the performing Wednes
day when her husband was being
tried on a delinquency charge in the
office of Probate Judge Ralph H.
Gaw. But the husband is having his
inning today in the office of Sirs.
Mary Cahpin, clerk of the district
court. A petition asking that he be
granted a divorce was filed today.
Bollock declares in his petition that
his wife has struck and abused him,
that she has been guilty of drunken
ness and while not Riving the names
of any co-respondents. Bollock, in his
petition, accuses her of improper con
duct with men. He asks for the cus
tody of the minor children.
In the delinquency hearing, hus
band and wife and witnesses that fill
ed the probate court engaged in
charges and counter charges. Finally

who goes home drunk is delinquent to

Bollock, makes from 518 to $20 a
week picking chickens, according to

"Pain la no respecter of persons," says
Dr. E. JL. Abogado. "It knows no distinc
tion of race, creed or wealth. The pain of
the man of millions with his gouty foot is
just as excruciating as Is that of the most
lowly citizen nursing his Jaw in a f renxy of
neuralgia. For the time being the one
thought uppermost In the minds of both Is
that they would gladly give their all to ttet
rid of the pain.
"The prominent symptoms of most dis
eases are pain and fever and I have found
that antl-kamnla tablets are equally as
effective as fever reducers as they are as
pain relievers. Therefore, In any diseases
where pain or fever exist either separately
or together, antl-kamnla tablets have their
proper use. For instance, 1 have used them
with most gratifying results In the treat
ment of all kinds of headaches, migraine,
coryza, la grippe, and its after effects; as
a sedative in Indigestion, gastralgla, dys
pepsia, hysteria and Insomnia; as an anti
pyretic in Intermittent, puerperal and
malaria fevers, bronchitis, pleurisy, etc.;
and in acute and chronic neuralgias, ear
ache, toothache, and the pains of sciatica,
rheumatism and scout."
Antl-kamnla tablets will quickly give yoa
the desired relief. Obtainable in any quan
