ArraiiKements have been concluded for a series of three games between the Herington and Wichita baseball teams on July S, 9 and 10. Exciting contests nre expected, as the quality of the Wichita nine Is well known, and the Herington players last season demon Ffated their superiority over other teams in this part of the country. All the men are strong at the bat and in the field, but especial reliance is placed in the battery work. Alexander Is one of the cleverest, brainiest catchers in the state, and under his, coaching. Clark, who shows phenomenal speed this year, and Switzer. late of Topeka, who has been signed for the season to reinforce him, are pitching ball that is hard to beat. Three days of rare sport is looked for. with the locals confident of winning at least two of the series. Kaglc'H Sporting Notes. The National sporting club of Lon don is going to raise a testimonial purse for Peter Jackson. Fantasy trotted the last half of her ri'.Ie in 2:07 at Des Moines in 1:01. the last quarter in 30U seconds. Pitcher Weyhing has pitched good ball since joining the Loulsvilles. but his lack of support has kept him from winning a game. Lawrence Farrell, alias Keoug3, the Denver pugilist, probably will not be seen in the ring again for many years, as he has been convicted of highway robbery in Denver.

At the Corbett-Fitzsimmons head quarters at Dallas, there is a confident feeling that the Plimmer-Dixon fight will occur some three or four days be fore the big battle. Dan Stuart says the $7,500 will be posted by the club as soon as the bantams assure him they mean business. Shannon, the hard-hitting and fast little shortstop of the Springfield team of the Eestern league, Is talked of as a successor to Fuller of the Giants.

BEE LIT OX HIS liALD SPOT. New York Jadgo Cuts Several Figures In tho Air. New York, July 3. Right in tl centre of Justice of the Peace J. C. Lowy's head is a bald cpot It is one of the baldest spots anywhere in Jersey City. Mr. Lowy is very proud of it. He says it Is the effect of deep thought and a noble exemplification of the power of concentration of intellect. When Tie is deciding a case he rubs the spot for in spiration. The more he rubs it the shinier it gets, and the shinier it gets the more inspiration the justice de rives from it Mr. Lowy sat in his office yesterday morning reading a newspaper and sun ning his center of inspiration. He was sunning it through his new straw hat which is perforated in the middle. Mr. Lowy bought the perforated hat as par ticular fitted to the needs of his bald epot, and not, as his enemies allege, for conversational purposes. Through the hole In the hat a ray of bright light reflected from the sunshine beamed in brilliancy. An inquisitive bee flew in at the open window, and on hovering wings sunned itself in the ray. The justice batted at the bee, which buzzed away around the room. It cir cled about in a narrow course, coming nearer and nearer to the hat. Perhaps it was hypnotized by the shinning spot, for it suddenly swooped down and crawled through the hole. Justice of the Peace Lowy signalized the entrance of the bee with startling ceremonies. He removed his perforated hat and cast it upon the floor. Thn he smote the roof of his Intellect violently and chanted a sonorous ehant, after which he waved his hands in the air and leaped around the room. The bee. having no hold on the slippery perr1' slid off and fell on the table, where Mr Lowy pounded it to death with an iron paper weight Then he went to the drug store and put his head under treatment. The pain was soon gone, but right at the middle of the candid and symmet rical circle of Inspiration there Is a small Ted pyramidal hump. It is a mound to the memory of the unlament ed bee.

KIRK'S GreatRecord in Wichita The Generous and Honest Methods lie Adopted in Introducing Rain Water Maker Uni versally Admired and Appre ciated He Wins the FigM Fairly and Sqnarely. When the announcement first appear ed in the Wichita newspapers that James S. Kirk & Co., would distribute free from the newspaper oflices 10,000 packages of Rain Water Maker, and that the distribution would be made under the auspices of the press and that the full results of the free distribution would be published day by day in the columns of the Wichita newspapers, and that this preparation should stand or fall upon the results of this investi gation, it marked a new era in the in troduction of honest goods. That Kirk has won the fight honestly and squarely, we leave the public to judge from the column after column of testimony published In this paper, which are but a few among the thous ands who have gratefully testified to the merits of Rain Water Maker since the free distribution two weeks ago. "Woman's Friend. Mr. T. G. Parham, the head of the Peerless Picture company. 239 North Main street, told a reporter for the Eagle, yesterday, his wife's experience with Kirk's Rain Water Maker. Mrs. Parham used it to prepare hard water for washing, some lace curtains and other delicate fabrics. Its effects were magical as compared with that ordin arily experienced in the use of broken hard water. The softness of the water seemed to be imparted to the articles in the wash, while the dirt stains dis solved and parted from the tissues of the goods almost without effort to re move them by the lightest rubbing. The saving in the wear to light and delicate articles will alone more j than compensate for the small cost or me discovery, to say notning ot the satisfaction a woman feels at hav ing things clean and white and fresh. Mrs. Tarham is more than pleased with her experience, and denominates the discovery "Woman's Friend." Possesses Genuine Merit. An Eagle representative yesterday called on Mrs. Lotta McNicol, wife of D. A. McNicol, janitor for the govern ment building, to ascertain her estimate of Kirk's Rain Water Maker. Mrs. McNicol was very frank to admit that she had given it as severe test as she could, being skeptical of its claimed virtues. She used it in the hardest water she could procure, following the introduction of soap into the water Im mediately after applying the resolvent, and to her surprise the water took up the soap at once, contrary to Its action when "broken" with the ordinary alka- tis. The cleansing of the textiles was easily accomplished with much less labor than with the use of any other preparation she has ever used, and t'he effect upon the blueing water was even more noticeable, not the slightest trace of curdling or settling being seen. She is altogether satisfied that the discovery is an article of genuine merit "Kirk's Kain Water Maker." Will hold colors from running in print ed goods. Flannels and woolens wash ed in water prepared with this most valuable preparation will positively not shrink. It breaks the hardest water instantly. For the bath or toilet it is indispen sable, making the water soft and vel vety, accelerating the action of soap, giving the skin a healthy glow and helping to remove any superfluous ex cretions that may adhere to the body. For the dishes and general washing es it is very essential, as it s. - !oth labor and soap. 'I s preparation is not to be con tour. !

At tho intersections of streets where electric arc light aro hung, says tho Kansas City Star, is a curious bit of city bird life. The lights are covered by big metal cones, inside of which a board crosses holding the bar that sus pends the lamp. One day the man who replenishes the lights with carbons lowered the lamp to the street While he was putting in the carbons a hen sparrow flew about his head chirping angrily. A crowd was attracted by the novel sight and when the people got near enough they saw the sparrow's nest on the board inside the cone and in it three young birds with gaping red mouths. The lamp man attended to his business as though it wero nothing strange. "Is that a sparrow's nest?" asked the man who always wants to know. "No, it's a man in swimming, re plied tho lamp man, sarcastically, for SPAJillOW'S SESX IS X UUCP cosx. he had evidently answered tho question before.

Wheat Succumbs to the Extent or Slre Eighths of a Cent, Being Aided by the rack of Outside Speculative Invest ments Cora is Firm oa Good Seaboard Orders for Export Good Basinets in Oats and a Quarter Cent Gained Pro visions Strong and Advances are 3ade Bog Receipts Light. Chicago, July 3. Trade was dull to day in all repartments of the specula tive business. The holiday tomorrow had much to do with the small trade, but besides that there Is a great lack of outside speculative Invesments. Wheat was weak and about X cent low er, corn averaged firm and gained U cent for September and oats closed "4 cent higher. Provisions were firmer and shoy small gains. Weakness was the feature of the ear ly trading, the opening transactions taking place at from KQz-k cent below the closing figures of yesterday. The main source of the weaker feeling was in the northwest, where the wheat was of the most favorable character for the wheat plant. Outside of that feature of jthe situation, the news of the day was j more bullish than before, as tne lollop ing enumeration of the principal Items will demonstrate. The Chicago receipts were only nine cars, two of which wro new wheat, one car grading Xo. 3 hard and the other No. 3 red. Minneapolis received 9S cars and Duluth 65 cars, or 163 cars in all compared with 406 cars yesterday. The chief western winter wheat markets received wheat as fol lows: Kans.rfj City, 4.S00 bushels; St Louis. 17,379 bushels. Toledo, 2.000 bush els and Duluth 692 bushels. The ship ments from Duluth today amounted to 2S0.G00 bushels, making for two days 520.000 bushels shipping. The export of wheat and flour from the Atlantic ports were heavy m comparison wuh m average of the last ten days, the total amounting to the equivalent of 420,000 bushels, 234,000 bushels of which were in the shape of wheat. The early Liver pool cables quoted an advance there of 14 'pence per cental, but the later cables reported a decline of U pence since yes terday, the latter decline resulting prob ably from the weak opening at Chica go. Berlin cablegrams reported firm ness and a slight advance while Paris sent no report and Antwerp repeated yesterday's quotations. The seaboard reported some Inquiry for export, but chiefly for Hour, and Dulth wired that there were buying orders from abroad for flour in the market The market here, after a decline from around 71 cents at the opening to a point below 71 cents and a recovery to around 71U cents, settled into sluggishness and as sumed the usual characteristics of the day preceding the great national holi day. The business of the board was in terfered with in the latter half of the session by the patriotic zeal of some of the younger members and trading was spasmodic. The price of September was kerjt between 1W 71 14 cents, with the lower edge of the range prevailing near the end. The closing price tor Septem ber was Tl" cents and for July 69Vs 34 cents. The corn market had some weak spots but on the whole ruled firm compared with the limpness of the wheat market. The fluctuations were confined to a range of about 1 cent. The seaboard advised a good export Inquiry and sent their orders for execution here. About forty boat loads were reported sold at the seaboard, which means tne snip ment of that Quantity from here. The receipts were nominally 104 cars, but two of those were merely transterreu from Irregular houses. September opened easier at 46 cent?, declined to 45 cents, rose to 46 cents and after fluctuating between 46 and 46 cents the most of the day, closed at 46itJ cents. The oats market was quite the re verse. Parties who of late have sold freely and weakened prices were buy ing today and caused a sharp advance. Some good sized short lines were cover ed during the latter part of the session. September started at from 24 to 24!i cents, weakened to 23 cents, rallied to 24g cents, back to 24 cents and final ly recovered to 244 cents. The provision trade was rather dull but the market was strong and it was found difficult to buy much without ad vancing the price. July deliveries were principally In demand. Indicating an unliquidated shortage for this month. The hogs receipts were only 22,000. and for tomorrow's run but 21,000 are look ed for. Prices at the close showed the following advances for the day: July pork, 10" cents; September 2 cents: July lard, 5 cents; September 2 cents; July ribs, 10 cents; September 5 cents.

New York. July 3. Speculation oa the stock exchange was featureless to day. The foreim selling was about equal to the buying and both combin ed did not add materially to the vol ume of business. A noticeable fsatura was the absence of rumor save foe the revamping of old stories, such as the decision to suspend dividends oa Chicago Gas and the acquisition of th control of New England by the New Haven management Little ir no men tion was heard of these rumors and the market moved in its sluggish course a the buyers or sellers were more numer ous. The opening was generally firm. Trading soon became stagnant and for want of support prices receded ?li per cent. Chicago Gas, Tobacco and Colorado Fuel benig the chief sufferers. Chicago Gas vas sold down mainly on orders from Chicago. Shorts begnn to cover at lower figures which had the effect of moving the figures upward along a range extending ls per cent, the latter for New England, which made the gain on very small buying owing to the scarcity of the stock. Su gar, Chicago Gas. Rubber common and preferred. Tobacco and North west being also prominent In the ad vance. The appreciation In Rubber was due to the tiling of the company's financial statement with the stock ex change. On purchases of 300 shares. Colorado Fuel rose 5 per cent, to SO per cent, common advancing 1 per cent In the hour realizations caused a reaction of S1 por cent, the latter In Chicago Gas- There was a slight pressure against the grangers !n the final sales but the market closed gen erally steady and in the main higher on the day. Chief among the advances are: Rubber preferred 1" per cent: Manhattan and Colorado Fuel and Colorado Fuel preferred 2 per cent LV ellnes: Chicago Gas 1 per cent and Louisville and New Albany preferred 1 per cent Bonds were dull but higher. Galves ton. Harrlsburg and San Antonio firsts sold at 103 per cent against Wi per cent, the last previous sales. Chi cago Gas firsts were bid for at 9S per cent ag.tinst a sale at 90 per cent Sat urday last Savannah and Western firsts trust receipts reacted 1 pet cent, to 57 per cent, and recovered to G9i per cent l.ondna Murk Kichftngc.
