Tho Outlook ftetvt Mors
A Glorlotu Promise
Kan8s CiTr, Juno 10. In summing op
tlio crop outlook for Kansas the Journal
fflvos figures that nro excoodlngly onoour
aging, und tho conclusions drawn are
equally applicable to almost evrn'v mrl nf
Missouri as woll. The Journal says i Tho
acreage, tho avorago yield and tho prico all
proraiso to bo big, and tho result will bo
that Kansas will reap tho greatest suto bf
monoy for Its wheal that It has over re
ceived. The ncrcago is about 50 por cent
tnoro thau last year, or somowhat over
8,000,000 acros. Tho yield Is variously
estimated at from fifteen to twenty
bushels; somo oven placolt higher thau
that and say that lt will bo bqual to tho
gleatcst over known, or over twonty-two
bushels. Taking on avcrago of 17.50
bushels, below which It Is not likely to
fall, and tho total yield will bo 52,500,000,
considerably moro than the yield of
1SS4. The prico Will not ro down to vnrv
low figures. It Is pretty dlBlcult to pre
dict what prices of grain will be, but tho
cortalnty of a demand for tho wheat of
this country In Europe gives "assurance
that good prices will prevail lnsplto of tho
unlvorsaUy largo crops of this country.
Last year after harvest tho prico went up,
contrary to tho usual courso of tho mar
ket, and from August to December ruled
from 00 to 93 cents per bushel, above tho
presont price. Supposo that it woro to bo
worth 75 cents por bushel, tho crop would
bring ?S9,37S,000, fully 15,C00,0OO moro
than the wheat crop of tho state has over
beforo realized. It sounds almost too good
to be true and yet tho figures furnished by
the stato board of agrlculturo guarantee
such a result.

KAtiSAS Guv, 'Juno 14. Tho JburnnCi
Topeka fcbrrespondent says that nn emer
gency has arisen that throatens to close
most of tho charltablo Institutions of the
stato unless an oxtra session of tho legis
lature Is had to vote additional approprla
tlons. Tho troublo grows out of tho cut
ting down of the laws of labor by tho last
legislature, without a proportionate In
crease of money for additional help re
Dr. Buck, superintendent of tho rororai
school for boys, said tho how superinten
dent who tnkes his place July 1, would lo

enabled tr dlvldo his present forco so as to
keop tho Institution opou.
Dr. Eastman thought that by closing up
entlroly two of tho Insane asylum build
ings and sending tho Inmates back to their
own county, ho trilght possibly so dlvldo
Ms attendants, ISO in number, as to keep
possibly 00 Insane. Thero nro now 750.
Tho samo action would bo taken at Oss.i
watomlc. At tho Imbccllo school, probably
half of tho unfor.unates might bo kept,
whllo at tho Industrial school for girls nt
Bololt, fully one-half will havo to bo dU
charged. Tho board reluctantly docldcs that thcio
must also be a reduotlon of tho number of
orphans maintained at tho orphan asylum
nt Atchison. Homos will bo found for tho
children as rapidly as possible and no
moro will bo admitted.

llfo. Tho attorney general has givon lt ns
his opinion that thero is no way out of tho
dilemma than tho employment of somo
1,200 pcoplo In the pubUo institutions of
Tho board of trustcc held a meeting to
day and, loarnlng tbo opinion of tho at
torney general, notified tho governor that
unless a special session of tbo legislature
was called before tho end of Scptombor to
oithor repeal this law or pass additional ap
propriation bills, to maLo appropriations
covering tho necessarily Increased ex
penses, they would closo tho two insane
asylums, the Imbecilo school and tho re
form school for girls and would probably
closo tho reform school for boys a month
later. In ordor to do this they would ro
turn all tho Insane to tho counties from
which thoy camo and send tho imbecile
youths and tho incorrigible girls and boys
back to tholr friends to bo cared for as
best thoy could.

A CIPHER DISPATCH.
It Was larnfless, Hut It Greatly Ktcltert
tho Great War Secretary.
In tho days before tho wiir General
IUifus In galls was quartermaster nt
Ftfrilimd, Ore,, nnd ono of bla closest
friend's' tf-sa James Ncsmith, a O already
promlnont lawyer thero.
The" war camo on and in tha muta
tions Of liifio- Oregon had becomo av
stato, with Kesmith as ono of its
senators, nnd Inpallrfhad been trans
ferred to Washington for duty. Both
weV bachelors and Jolly good fellows,
fond of Jolly companionship, and bo
they jointly took ono of thoso old
fashioned brick dwellings that tlicn
stood on Pennsylvania avenue. When.
General In calls became chief quarter
master of tho army of tho Potomac tho
housekeeping was not broken up, for
his dutltt brought him frequently here
Senator Ncsmith was a democrat of
tho Douglas stripe nnd a thorough
union man. Ho was intensely inter
ested in tho progress of tho war and
was flavor tired of hearing General
Ingalls kll of operations in the field,
marches, campaigns and battlos.
Finally hs asked Ingalls to telegraph
him tho text timo a battlo was coming,
for he ardently desired to witness one.
In thos 3 dark days of tho war Mr. '
Stanton was the ono autocrat hero who
was fearoi by everyone; not even Mr.
Seward's "little bell" was eo droaded
as one of his orders. Every telegraph
wire from "tho front" led into tho old
war department building, whoro a
corps of telegraph operators was kept
on duty d.iy nnd night, and every dis
patch thai, camo or was sont was sub
mitted to tho personal inspection of
tho secretary of wnr or General
Pelouze, Lis military secretary.
Ono day in 1863 a message camo
flashing ii.8 dots and dashes into tho
operator's room in the war depart
ment It camo from headquarters of
the army of tho Potomac and was
addressed to "lion. James Nosmlth.
senator from Oregon. Washington."
Thon followed a lot of undociphcrablo
words, and tho dispatch was duly
gigned "Ingalls, chief quartermaster."
Tho chief operator at onco rushed
to Secretary Stanton with tho dispatch,
remarking that it was In cipher. Mr.
Stanton saw that tho message was
unintelligible, but noting the names of
sender and receiver, and also knowing
that an Important movement of tha
army was to bo mado in a very short
time, jumped at onco at a conclusion,
thus: Nosmlth, being a democratio
senator, was, of courso, a traitor to tho
union. Ingalls, being at headquarters
of tho army, could communicate dan
gerous information, and hero it was.
But it was In a strange cipher
ogroed upon, no doubt. Thoy had
mon theto in thoso days that could
discount tho cryptogram business if a
confederate spy was caught but they
couldn't ranko head or tall of tho wiro
message from General Ingalls to his
chum, Soiator Ncsmith.
Mr. Stmton went wild with wrath
Ingalls was a traitor. Ho would havo
a summary court martial upon him at
onco, and havo him shot beforo twenty-four
hours passed by.
Officer after officer was sent for, but
nono could interpret tho strango cipher,
until at list there was at least a dozen
in tho room, and the secretary still
raging for Ingalls' lmmcdlato military
Just afi tho storm was at its height
General "Bob" Williams (ho was a
major then) appeared with a bunch of
papers to bo signed and looked a bit
astonished at tho commotion. Qulstly
to a brother officer ho inquli'cd what all
tho row was about
Mr. Stanton overheard tho remark
and rushod up to him with tho fatal
telograni in his hand and asked ex
citedly: "WhB.t do you think of that? I'vo
got Ingftlls at last for I knew ho was
a traitor all tho time."
General Williams took tho telegram,
read it over slowly and then laughed.
"That's just liko Ingallii," ho said
as ho hirnded tho dispatch back to tho
