Mrs. II. f. Itrownson "In the early 'TOs,
the old .historic Teft house, or Topeka,
played quite a prominent part In Kansas
politics. Its olllces and corridors were
tilled with men who have since hi Id
high positions both In state and at the
Nation's capital. Many a caucus was held
In some or its rooms, where the midnight
oil was burned until the wee small hours
of morning, deciding the fate of governor,
congressman or senator. There the ra
mous Yorke. Pomeroy ex posee was con
cocted, and from one of these midnight
caucuses the name or J. J. Ingalls was
given to the muntry as nominee for the
1'nlted States senate; also the following
well known names were registered there;
Our worthy governor. IS. N. Morrill, iras
In the senate at the time, and Is still work

familial faces were: James M. Harvey.

and many others. Some have represented
our state as senators and congressmen and
some In the governor's chair; others have
filled high olllces of trust and distinction.
"When a Jollification Has in order, over
some great victory, T. J. Anderson's Modoc
Club was called Into requisition and the
old otllce would ring and the genial face
of "I'ap McMeeklu' would beam upon his
guests, nnr ex-Senator W. J. Kuehaii wis
then embyro, being a committee clerk, but
he had his eye upon the pinnacle which
he finally gained. The struggle still goes
on. but many have dropped by the way
side and Joined the silent majority, and
others till their places. I doubt if otir
hotels of to-day can boast or such an ar
ray or noteil names upon their registers as
did th? old Tert house. In tho '70s."

frescoes and a line Assumption, palmed
by Titian In IMS. While its harmony of
color Is wonderrul and its effects of light
and shade most realistic, yet It is without
the majestic grandeur of the Assuma of

elegant, Intensely conservative, thoroughly
typical of Missouri. All Its prejudices lean

dim old wood of the fairest portion of our

certainly shows gremt lack of state pride

William Dannat has astonished the

after seeing those six girls sitting In a

Klizabeth Xourso are the only ladles

they are the only American women who

"As vet very few colorlsts are Amerl
