while the occupants were absent at the cele

in mussing up things generally, but were
evidently scared away bclorc securing any

it was a good thing for us that yesterday
was not a nuslncss day, and that, there

column of telegraph reports of the mar

That the women of Kansas are a full
match for the men and a little to spare, was
never more forcibly Illustrated than by a
little incident that occurred iu Gypsum
township the other day. For prudential
reasons, and In view of the fact that we
have not yet taken out an accident policy,
wo withhold all names. A farmer living in
that township was in a great hurry to get
his harvesting done, as the wheat was fully
ripe and the weather line. Therefore he
hitched lii- horses to the harvester and witli
his boys and hired men went out Into the

add that the whole force was detailed at
chopping wood that afternoon.
GUS MAUT'S FUNERAL.
The body ol Gus Maut, who was
drowned in the Little river Friday ulght,
was recovered at about 2 o'clock yesterday
morning by the parties in search lor it.
The body had been carried but a short dis

and was found tangled up in the roots ol a
large tree in water about fourteen Icet
deep. It was taken to the undertaking
rooms of W. II. Kcndle, where it was
viewed by tho coroner' Juiy yesterday
morning. The jury then adjourned to Act

turned a verdict in accordance with the
above facts, i. e., that the deceased came to
bis death by accidental drowning in the
Mr.Maut was a young man abouttvventy
four years of age, and had been in the cm
ploy of Koot llros. lor about four months.
He was a very cxcmplaty, sober and Indus
trious man, and must have oiiii means
laid by as he was quite frugal In his habits,
but no one knows what amount he had or
where it is. He bad no relatives in this
city, but bas a brother in Ness county to
whom word has been sent apprising bira
or Gus' sad fate. The Tuccral of the de
ceased occurred yesterday afternoon at
about T o'clock Irom Kendlc's undertaking
rooms and was generally attended by his
friends and acquaintances.
This Is the second case of drowning In
the Little river In less than a week, and
should be a warning lo all those who are
in the habit or bathing in this stream to
exercise more judgment and be less venturesome.
HOW HE WOUND UP THE DAY.
I marvel some
On this queer 5ay'g delights;
Its odd distractions.
Its peace inlractions,
And its. absorbing sights;
Wo can torget
There goes my thumb.
In times gone by
I used to love its joys.
Its howl and clanging,
Its roar and danging,
Made by all sorts of boys.
We older men
Good Lord! my eye.
It has been said
We never get too old
To like the feeling
Of 'ancy stealing
From hearts that can't grow cold.
With hair of snow
That thumped my head.

With things that fizz and pop.

Time that is golden;
And I am glad But stop !
Too very much !

The Fourth of July celebrations in this
vicinity passed off very pleasantly and were
numerously attended, notwithstanding the
extreme heat. At about 10 o'clock In the
morning the Knights of Labor formed in
procession and marched through thcprincl
pal streets of the city on their way to HiV'
crside park where their celebration was
had. The parade was headed bv the band
and was quite imposing, the large banners
attracting much attention. Among the
mottoes carried by the order we noticed
the following: "Labor produces all and
labor should control it;'' "We demand jus
tice to all;" "In union there is strength,"
aud "The Knights ol Labor are coming two
million strong." At the park were swings,
platforms for dancing, aud boats for those
who loved to row. The chief orator ot the
day was Mr. Coffecn, ol Danville, III., who

The Gciman Sunday school picnic, which
took place south of Lawrence avenue, was
also well attended and greatly enjoyed.
Taken all together, and considering that
no concentrated action was had in arrang

passed off very pleasantly, and wa9 greatly

FIFTEEN MINUTES IN CLEARWATER.
One of the Eagi.k'.n force boarded the
Sunflower train that went down to Clear
water last evening. The excursionists had
gone down in the morning to celebrate tbe

run dotvn of the extra was made In what
seemed only a few minutes and was
through one continuous farm of waving
corn, and shocks of wheat and oats.
