It is a very comforting fact that the art instinct in this country presaged the value the great exposition would have to the American public and prepared to per petuate it in faithfully executed pictures. This work was concientiously done, and in "Shepp's World's Fair Photoaraphed" our portlolio3 are instinct with a wealth of outline and detail that is marvelous. It can be truthfully said that the work is one which amply satisfies the miuds of the most critical iu all its parts. Tlie views are done in that spleudid way that have made the Shepps famous the world over, and the hibits is all that the most exacting can ask. No photographic work that may be put foith for the acceptance of the Amer ican people will have anythiug like the merit of this splendid volume of more than 500 pages and nearly 2G0 views taken by tho best experts wfth the camera iu the world. It will be issued by the Eagle in parts in the same manner as "The Sights and Scenes of the World" that has been running for the past three weeks. It bus the further merit of being officially indorsed by the World's Fair manage ment as the best and only authorized series of photographic views in existence. This is buttressed by the opinions of newspap ers iu all parts of tiie country, whose ed itors unhesitatingly yield it the palm in every respect. Some of them single out special views as woiks that are phejome nally flue specimens of the photographic art, and recommend the booic to their leaders as the very best memorial volume of the fair that has been brought to their attention. The Philadelphia "Item" considers it "an immensely valuable and important souvenir of the greatest exposition the world ever held," aud the .Milwaukee Sun concedes that "every detail of the work is of the best." The Saginaw, (Mich.) Even ing News thinks it "is 03 far the best book pertaining to tho Columbian exposition." Senator Teller, of Colorado, thinks "It is certainly a beautiful souvenir of the fair and a splendid specimen of the art pre servative." Senator Daniels, of Virginia, prises his volume "very highly" and says "the book is a work of art," while Gover nor MacCorkle, of West Virginia, deems "the volume worthy a place in every fhst- class library." Ex-Presideut Harrison has a copy of this splendid book, and so have Thomas A. Edison, the electrical wiztird, Secretary Gresham, and many other men of prominence and who know a good thing in art when they see it. This is high praise, for the country is ab solutely flooded with photographic souve nirs of tho exposition, and newspaper peo ple have hid cart loads of them dumped upon their tables for inspection. The "Acadian Record," of Halifax, N. S., calls it "a book no; only for the present, but for the generations to come." The "True American" in speaking of it says: "We are doing our readers and the public a service by calling their attention to it." A voice from the Mississippi river from the office of the Davenport, Iowa, "Demo crat," exclaims: "Months of reading will uot giveso intelligent an idea of the beauty and vastness of the world's fair as this book." Monsig. Satolli, St. Peters ablegate to the United States, writes: " 'Shepp's World's Fair Photographed' is an elegant volume of official photographs of the Col umbian exposition. The artistic execu tion of the views, and the neatness of the work of the printer and binder, deserve great praise, and would refisct the highest credit oa any similar undertaking ia Europe."

Jay WrigLt has offered ?3Q0 reward for the capture of George H. Shirley and bis return to the officers of the law at Newton. Mr. Wright was Shirley's bondsman and is out $2500 in Shirley's disappearance. This reward has set the sleuth bounds of the law hot on Shirley's trail aud if he is in the country he will soon be captured. The question is is he In the country? There is a story in circulation, and it is based on some rea sonable evidence that Shirley has gona to South America. It is alleged that there is positive information that he was seen in .New Orleans, and that a man answering bis description was seen embarking on a steamer for Vera Cruz, Mexico. Consul Schaeffer of that port, who knows Shirley, bas been written to, and if the fleeing gen tleman is on board the steamer he will find himself in the bauds ot tho United States officer the moment he sets foot on Mexican soil. He can't bo extra dieted on such an offense unless he is will ing to come back and that is hardly prob able. If the reward was offered earlier it is not improbable that Shirley would be in j dl cow. There is some good evidence iu the hands of certain pirties that Shirley wis in his own house the very day he fail ed to appear for trial at Newton and for at least twenty-four hours after that. It is also said that Harvey county has officers employed to run him down aud t hat the county commissioners will spend 50,000 if necessary to have him arrested and brought to justice. There are -some grave charges floating around in this case and it is not impraba ble that some other parties will bearrested for collusion in causing Shirley's escape. These charges tire not yet in shape to spring them on the public, but wheu they are brought to light it is hinted that they will cause quite a sensation. PECULIAR CO-INCIDENT. Affair that was Talked of by Operators fiom Main to CalilornU Last Night. Yesterday the Eagle contained an item about S. J. Thomas of this city who was called homo to Burlingame by a telegram announcing the birtli of twins at his house. At Kansas City there is also an operator named Thomas. Both of them are report operator", they work on the same wire, at tne same time auu during the same hours. At the very moment that our Mr. Thomas became the father of twins thu Kans is City Thomas became the father of twins also. Tne only difference was that the Kansas City twins weighed sixteeu pounds and the Kausas City twins only fourteen pounds. Ia both instances the twins were the firstborn children of the gentlemen and what is equally strauge both of them were mar ried in tho same week but not on the same day, our Mr. Thomas being married two days ahead of tho Kausas City man. This peculiar co-incident was the talk of tel egraphers all over the couutry last night. By this morning every repott operator fiom Main to California will know it as the boys passed it along from one to an other It would bo a hard matter to find a co-incident that bas more like details thau this one. GARFIELD POST INSPECTED. Lad cs or the G. A. It. ami .Sons of Veterans Sjurjrls tlie J5o. One hundred and fifty members of Gar field post were out last nis?ht to witness the most thorough inspection the post ever had. At an early hour the boys began to as semble and when the commander called tho post to order he faced enough men to make a small regiment. Two recruits were mustered. Comrade A. S. Casad, past commander of General Rus sell post No. 0j at Pittsburg, Kan., making the badge presentation. After the muster the officer of tho day introduced Comrade T. IL Hornaday, who, assisted by Comrades Mike Reagan of Sedgwick and George W. Stecnrod of Col wich, both past commanders, proceeded to the work of inspection. Garfield post never received such a thorough inspec tion as it did last night. The inspectors requested tho reporter to say that the post had the Quest set of books kept by both the adjuaant and quartermaster of any they had ever teen, and that the coudition of the post aud the arrangements second to none in the state. They paid the high est commendation every way to the post. At the close of the inspection the post was closed in due form, and immediately the fife and drum struck up "Yankee Doodle," the doors wore heard to open and eyery ere was turned m that direction. Tho officer of the day was seen marching down the hall, withdrawn sword, followed by thirty ladles. They entered amid lond clipping of hands. They formed in a cir cle ronnd the altar, the oflicer of the day in the center, and he announced: "Cammander I have the honor and the pleasnre to introduce the members of Caroline Harrison Circle No. 5C, ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic." Commander Campbell greeted them In a few words eloquently and feelingly spoken. "When he had flubbed the fcorls of Vet erans were announced at tho door de- j mandmg adml-"iion. They were admitted and received with load applause. Mrs. Snyder on th part of the Circle, and Ezra Beard on the prt of the Sons made brief talks. Eich lady brought a cake, and this with the beans and sandwiches and coffee made a very palatable feast, indeed. After the supper was disponed of the post commander called the hocse to order and introduced Comrade A S.
