to Deputy I'ristoe, after his "des

Immediately after Storts' arrival
here, where he was met by a num.
bcr of Slater friends (several haV -
lug gone to Kansas City, returning
with him), the party repaired to
the court house where Storts found
no trouble in securing bond for
55000 and it is the general opinion
that 100,000 could have been se
cured as easily. The Slater par
ties returned to that city on the
last train that night.

A Dwej Picnic.
On Monday evening as a re
porter wended her way homeward
weary with the cares of an unnsu
ally warm day, her eyes were glad'
denedand her thoughts taken away
from herse'f and all the weary day,
by the sight of 14 happy children
playing upon Mrs. Jackson's lawn
their faces wreathed in smiles tand
enjoying to the fullest the good
cheer, that had been provided for
them by their kind hostess.
It was a happy thought of Mrs.
Jackson to give this little picnic to
the children in the block. Child
rci are very dear to mother Lute,
and they all love her. The party
was given in honor of little
Florence and Kathcrine Patterson,
who have been visiting on Arrow
St. for some ten days. These
little Misses acted as hostesses upo
this occasion and in their atten
tiona to the guests, set an example
that older people might welt follow,
They all assembled In the parlor
where music and recitations were
given. (Just ihluk of recitations
and, music by children so young.)
Katlierliie Vllcy played ' "My
Country TIs of Thee',' and led the
slngjng, all the childivu joining in
the singing. Margaret Leonard
and Dorothy Woodbridge gave some
instrumental music on the piano,
Bessie Sandidge recited and Flor

mated way of "How Betsy -ami I
killed the Bear." Hach child re
cited or told some funny story.
Joe Orear presented the lfostes.4
with n huge luiiirh of lilacs, with
the bow of a Chesterfield. They
played "Loudon brldgc,""drop the
handkerchief," etc; then Mrs- JackJ
sou gave "Jack and Jill" or "The
Dutch Babies",, which'' was the
crowning feature of this delight
(nl entertainment. A regular pic
nic dinner was spread on the lawn,
'embracing feutotrirde, fnlfts jfrfd
little cakes baked In the shape of
the different animals. Wben the
sun was hiding his head in the
west and weary little feet were
ont to rest, they bade Mrs. Jack.

child carried with her a little sack
of "Dewey" candy with a ptcasaut
remembrance of the picnic.
