Western Kansas is aain afflicted

necessary to help the settlers out.
Boi rke Cockrax will probably be

The Chicago Record says that Col.
Charles H. Jones, formerly of the St.
Louis Republic, gave it out during
his recent visit to that city, that he
would start a new morning demo

PresidentCable of the Rock Island
railroad, while in New Yojk one (lav
the past week, gave it as his opinion
that $1,000,000 a day would be left in
Chicago by visitors until the close of
the exposition, lie thinks that the
railroads from now until November
will carry 100,000 passengers daily
obove the normal traflic. Carrying
the calculation a little farther. Presi
dent Cable thinks that each visitor
w ill spend $10 a day while away from
home. It is the experience of most

Senator Voouhees, whose long
congressional experience makes his
opinion valuable, takes no stock in
the extra session being a short one.
Speaking of it he said: '-Congress
will probably be in continuous ses
sion until August 1.1, lS'il. if not
longer." Representative Wilson, of
West Virginia, the gentleman who is
thought to stand the best chance of.
being the chairman of the ways ami
means committceof the house, should
Mr. Springer not get it again, also
thinks the extra session will run into
the regular session and that the lat
ter will be an nnusualTy long one.
Mr. Wilson thinks the tariff will be
taken up just as soon as the ways and
means committee is announced by
Speaker Crisp, and it is expected that
will be immediately after the house
goes through the formality of re
electing Mr. Crisp speaker.
Facts are stubborn, things, and
now that the democrats have an op
portunity to examine the pension
roll they are turning up every day to
prove that the claim made by demo
crats for years, that millions of dol
lars were being paid out illegally for
jicnsions, was correct. Cases are
numerous where men are drawing
$72 a month for total disability and
are in addition following ordinary
avocations and drawing the same
salaries as uninjured men. Two
cases of this sort turned up this
week right in Washington, one man
a musician regularly employed, and
the other a government clerk, and
there are many more. These two
men were re-examined and their pen
sions reduced to $17 and $23 a month
respectively, and so apparent was
the justice of their reduction that
neither of them availed himself
of the right to appeal from the de
cision of the board of examiners,

Where Jute Ferry I)itd.
The room in which M. Jules Ferry
died was transformed into a mortuary
and hunj? with draperies worked in
silver. The senate voted 20,000 francs
to cover the expenses of the public
funeral. A part of the great French
man's will read as follows: "I order
the interment of my, body in the St.

A CLUB-FOOTED DEER.
Bho and Killed After Being Banted
Down for Some Fifteen Tears.
, In the quaintest little shop in De
troit is Charles Lummer, taxidermist,
filing- away on the tooth of a California
mountain lion, Lummer explains
that the lion was old and his teeth bad
lost their edge, and he is filing them to
make; the threatening papier-mache
jaws in which they are set look more
Th greatest curiosity which Lum
mer I as in his shop just now, however,
is a d er that was shot last fall in .a
swan: p at Turtle Lake, back of the
club house where Ed H. Gillman and
his friends spent the hunting season.
This deer has been sought by Michi
gan hunters for over fifteen vears. He
was known by a peculiar mark which
his rif.'ht foot made, and he was called
the club-foot. For over fifteen years
hunters have at times said, after re
turning from a hard day's chase:
"Well, I have seen the olub-foot to
day." 'Did you see him?" would be
orea-tl lessly asked.
"No, only his tracks."
Many a stranger hunter to those
parts followed the club-feet's tracks,
thinki lg that he must be wounded and
would sooner or later be found, but he
tramp ?d until he was tired or lost the
trail. Many people who have never
seen the club-foot or his tracks de
clared the story to be a myth. Never
theless there are few hunters in Michi
gan who have not in the past fifteen
years r.iade a fruitless search for the
famous animal, lie apparently lived
the whole time in a swamp about four
teen m .les long and two miles wide,
back of Turtle Lake. Last fall he was
shot by Louis Birch, a meat market
proprietor of Bay City, and now the
fore-half of the club-foot stands
mounted in Lummer's shop.
IN A PICTURE-FRAME.
It Prov-d ft Godsend to ft Family of ft
An auction sale took place at Ilazel
ton, Penn., recently, which developed
a peculiar feature. The goods put up
were at one time owned by Joseph
Gaydos and Andrew Yankofski, who
were kiLled in the Stockton colliery.
Yankofski was the more fortunate in
having two brothers in good circum
stances. No ore thought that Gaydos pos
sessed money. In order to defray the
funeral expenses his effects were put
ud at auction. Everything had been
disposed of excepting an old picture.
The picture was a common painting,
worth probably twenty-five cents
when it was new, and was covered
witji du t " ':
No one Seemed to want it A little
nephew of the deceased happened
along a'xmt that time and. seeing
some one in the crowd bid five cents
for it. It was knocked down at that
figure. The picture was given to the
nephew. The little fellow hastened
home. While showing it to his mamma
a five dollar gold piece dropped on the
floor. A further examination of the
picture d sclosed the fact that it had
served as a bank for the savings of the
deceased uncle. Tucked in between
the frame and the picture was found a.
bag containing S500.
The m mey, besides defraying the
funeral expenses, was like a provi

White Lead is best ; properly applied
it will net scale, chip, chalk, or rub
off; it firmly adheres to the woou and
forms a permanent base for repainting.
Paints which peel or scale have to be
removed by scraping or burning before
satisfactory repainting can be done.
Whea bv-7-ag it is important to obtain
properly made. Time has proven that
white lead made by the " Old Dutch "
process of slow corrosion possesses
qualities that cannot be obtained by
any other method of manufacture. Thi.
process consumes four to six months
time, and produces the brands that
have given White Lead its character
as the standard paint.
"Southern" "Red Seal"
are standard brands of strictly pure
Lead made by the " Old Dutch " pro
cess. You get the bes in buying them.
You can produce any desired ecler by
