Match Games at llerrlngton.
Herington, Kan., July 3. (Special.)
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.

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

which he waved his hands in the air

The Generous and Honest Methods
lie Adopted in Introducing
Rain Water Maker Uni
Wins the FigM Fairly
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.
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

At tho intersections of streets where

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

man who always wants to know.

TRADE GROWS DULL

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
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
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.

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.

for tomorrow's run but 21,000 are look
ed for. Prices at the close showed the

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
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
