This proscription was given to Jnmcs
A. J'lnlay, who wont to Love's drug
store, i ortier of Tenth anil walnut
streets, accompanied by Dr. Carrlel and
another man. The proscription wits hid
den beneath a show case In the store.
Dr. Carrlel then stttrtotl to return to the
hotel and .Mr. Klnluy and the other mftn
went back Into the store. They took the
preset tption from the place where It was
hidden nnd mil It In a drawer in the
rear of the stole. After a moment they
agreed that that might bo tin easy place
for .Mind Homier Johnstone to Ilntl tho
prescription und they took it Into the
prescription room and hid It In a book.
Thev then returned to tho hotel.
Johnstone was blindfolded, nnd with
his right htintl grasping the left hand of
one ot the men who had hidden tli" pro
scription he ran to tho drug ht.ir-. He
run so fast that the man who was with
him was badly winded when they ar
rived there. They were followed by u
luige and curious crowd. Johnstone
went to each of the places vvlicte the
prescription was hidden In rapid suc
cession, and within live minutes from
the time he entered the store II was in
his possession. He handed It to Mr.
James M. Love, with a lequcst thnt he
look at It and llx the Ingredients firmly
In his mind. The mind reader led Mr.

gan searching for tho bottles that he
needed lo compound Ihe prescription.
At the end of ton minutes ho had not
found any of tho bottles. lie then told
Mr. Lorn that ho could not compound
the proscription with him. as he would
not keep his mind on the drugs that
wore to be used, but was wondering
whether he would tlnd them. During all
this time Mind llcndcf Johnstone held
Mr. Love's loft hand with his left hand.
A. V. Hlgglns. clerk In tho store, took
the place of Mr. Love. After n few
false passes Johnstone found the (list
bottle. Soon afterward he found the
second bottle, and It was not long be
fore ho had found the third bottle. He
then reached to hit loft and gut a spatu

Meeting of Scandinavians at Wing's II. U
Resolutions calling upon tho Swedish
government to create a vice consulship
In Kansas City for the states of Missouri
and Kansas were adopted at a mass meet
ing nf Scandinavian residents of the two
cities, held In Wing's hall last night. Thn

Minister t.rlp, envoy of the Swedish gov
ernment at Washington and Count Lew
enhanpt, the minister of foreign nlfnlrs of
Sweden und Norway, nt Stockholm, will
be sent copies. The Scandinavian resi
dents ot this city have long1 been desirous
of having a vice consulship here. The Swed
ish government has no repretentntlvu for
Missouri and Kansas, though the two
states havu some kO.Ouo Swedish residents.
Kansas City Itself has about 10,000 resi
dents of S nndlnavlan birth or lineage.
The meeting was not without some fric
tion, the cause being tho meeting of
Sciiudiuavlans at a hotel on the evening
of .March 23. At that time only about a,
dozen leprisentatlves ot the two coun
tries met and indorsed Henry Johnson for
the place. This action was resented by a
large number of the Swedes of the city,
as being ex parte, and several times last
night there were altercations between
thoe supposed to be Johnson's friends .
and those opposed to hltn. However,
these dllllu'iiltles were smoothed over be
fore the meeting broke up. and the sub
ject was dropped.
The meeting was called to order by A.
Holts. A, T. Nyland was chosen perma
nent chairman and Kdwnnl ThlniKlen, sec
retary. Speeches were mado by Alderman
A. U. Olson, II, (i. Bastman, who is In
