what they did in Brooklyn, where my

So far no offers have been made Kins
low. St Julien, 2:11., died August 15,
1S94, on the Morrow ranch, near Santa
Clara, Gal. Mr. Morrow, in telling of
his death, said: "On the morning of
his death, as was his usual habit, he
came from the far end of the pasture
to the watering trough, and, with his
little pony companion, started for Ob
servation Point. The men say he trot
ted away just as he did for a number
of years, and when he got to the eleva
tilon, after taking a last long look over
the vast Santa Clara valley, he fell
dead. His companion ran down to
where the nv?n were, and when they
did not see Jule with his they sur
mised something was wrong. On ar
riving at the summit, with his head
turned to the east, St Julien was lying
cold in death. The men reverently
dug a grave right there and gently low
ered all that remained of the old trot
ting king to his last lonely bed. A
mound of earth was made and a suit
able tombstone placed over him."
A report comes from Pittsburg
which, if true, shows a deplorable state
of affairs in existence in the St Louis
club. The report is to the effect that
the Browns are thoroughly demoral
ized. A contemporary, writing about
the matter, says: "There are but three
men in the club who play the game as
if they wanted to hold their positions,
and even the members of this trio
make no secret of their wish to get
away from the present St Louis club.
Most of the boys, however, are openly
defiant some of them announcing that
they would not run across the lot to
win a game for Von der Ahe. The
bitterness shown by them toward Von
der Ahe is something appalling, and
having now seen the spirit manifested
by the Browns Pittsburg cranks are
wondering how they "win a game once
a month." It is a well-known fact that
since Charlie Comiskey gave up the j
management of the Browns there has j
been dissatisfaction and contention in
the ranks of the team. Von der Ahe
is not liked by the men. but that is no
reason why they should not play ball.
There never has been any complaint
on the part of the St. Louis players
that they did not receive their salaries,
and as that is the only inducement
that the men receive for playing ball,
there appears to be no reason for a
rebellion. Either Mr. Von der Ahe or
the league should take the matter of
these players who are obtaining money
bv false" pretenses Into their hands.
Men have been blacklisted for life for
"selling" games and the men who play
dishonest ball Just because they do not
like the man who is paying their sal
aries are almost as bad and should be
summarllv dealth with.

MRS. LARIMORE'S DIVORCE.
Oklahoma City, O. T., July 4. (Spec
ial.) In the district court yesterday a
divorce was granted to Mrs. Burd G.
Larimore of St. Louis. Both parties
are prominent in that city, on account
of their wealth and social position, the
wife being a member of the celebrated
Garrison family, of railroad renown,
and the husband a nephew of Post
master Carlisle of St Louis and a rel
ative of Secretary of the Treasury Car
lisle. So it will be seen that they are
very high-toned and way-up people.
They were married in St. Louis on
January 22, 1S92. and lived together
until February 20, 1S93, when she left
him unable to longer bear his inhuman
treatment She came to Oklahoma
City on March 18, 1S93, ostensibly to
make it her permanent home, but as
soon as her ninety days residence were
up applied for a divoce. In the mean
time the husband had brought an ac
tion for divorce in the St. Louis courts
making charges of gross misconduct
and henious crimes, but was forced to
withdraw the petition and dismiss the
case, even his own relatives being very
indignant at him. He then sent his
attorney to Oklahoma to fight the case
but finally decided to allow her a de
cree, putting in only a general denial.
The cruel and inhuman treatment
consisted, according to the evidence,
in beating, bruising and generally mis
treating her. On two occasions he
blacked her eyes so that she was una
ble to appear in public for several days
Her case was managed here by Mr.
J. A. Wilson and in St. Louis by Mr.
Virgil Rule, one of the best attorneys
in that city. The husband's lawyers
were II. B. Mitchell of this city and
L. Frank Atoffy of Sc Louis. The lat
ter was at one time a partner of Post
master Carlisle, but his action in filing
Larlmore's petition caused a rupture
and the partnership was dissolved.
The lady is wealthy in her own right
and asked no allimony. She was given
the custody of the youngest child. Rich
ard, aged one year, and the husband
was given Leonatine, aged four years.
Since her residence here the lady has
conducted herself very circumspectly
and the decision would seem to be a
vindiction of her course. She left for

Sporting News In General.
Chicajjo, July 4. "You can say for me
that George Siler is personally objec
tionable to Jim Corbett, and that under
no circumstances will he be accepted as
Teferee for the fight scheduled for Oct.
31 at Dallas. Texas."
William A. Brady, manager, backer,
friend, worshiper of Champion James J.
Corbett brought his clinched fist down
on the "table before him with emphasis
as he finished.
"Corbett is the most generous man on
earth," he continued, "'but when once
played false he never become reconcil
ed. I do not feel called upon to ex
plain just why "Mr. Siler wont do for the
Corbett end of the fighting compact,
but Jim has ample cause. In his capa
city as sporting editor cf a now defunct
newspaper, Mr. Siler went out of his
way to injure the man he now seeks to
referee a fight for. We won't have it."
"Who will act as referee?" was asked.
"Beyond a flat-footed refusal to con
sider the name of Mr. Siler when it was
broached with a lot of others, the mat
ter -has never been discussed officially;
that is, by the principals to the fight.
There will be no trouble on that score,
however. Names have been suggested.
It is true, but none, as I have said,
have been considered. Among those al

to select from, and, though I do not
want to commit myself, it is more than
likely that one of these will call the men
together for instructions at Dallas on
the day set for the fight. "
"Have you any fears as to the ability
of the Dallas people to bring off the
ITAS CONFIDENCE IN STEWART.
"None, -whatever. This man Dan
Stewart, who Is handling the thing for
the Texas syndicate, has satisfied me
that he can do just what he states he
will. He is the most substantial man
who has ever mixed up in a deal such
as this. He is a practical, methodical
business man, who mapped out and ma
tured his plan before he got to the fight
ers. He made sure that he was rii-nt,
and then, like Davy Crockett, went
ahead. He has brains, Influence nnd
money. The action of the Texas author
ities since the signing of the principals
demonstrates that Stewart knew what
he was about Unlike the Bowdens of
Jacksonville, he did his work before he
signed the men, and he will satlsfy
every promise made."
"How does Oorbett feel about the
"He thinks that he will win."
"Think as he does, except that I Im
agine that it is going to be a short fight.
Corbett Is preparing for a long fight.
He argues that he will b In shape to
put up a protracted battle, as he does
not underrate Fitzslmmons."
"It has been said that this would be
the champion's effort In the ring."
"Which is a fact, with one possible
exception. Corbett will fight Fitzslm
mons and will then retire unless Peter
Jackson wants to fight. No one on
earth can get Jim to train again unless
it be Jackson. So anxious Is Jim to get
at Peter that the proposition to fight
Fitzslmmons and Jackson in the same
week still holds good."
"On the hypthesis that Corbett beats
Fitzslmmons, what will he do?"
"He will make a tour of the country
first, and later will go to Australia, In
dia, and South Africa. While on the
subject of Africa, let me qualify my re
marks as to Jackson. Corbett will
fight him anywhere on earth except In
England. Dixon, also a colored man.
nnd a little one at that. Is to fight nc
Dallas. If Dixon is accorded fair play
there, what then has Jackson to fear?
But about his plans. There is now
finished for Corbett a drama by Charles
T. Vincent author of "Gentleman Jack"
named the "Naval Cadet." Corbett al
ready has his part, and will begin study
ing it at his training quarters."
"Whers will he train?"
TRAINING NORTH AND SOUTH.
"He will do nine weeks of hard con
ditioning work. Five of these will be
put In at Asbury Park, and then will
finish with a month's training at Gal
veston, possibly. Terrell, the place sug
gested by President Green, is too far
lnkind. Jim wants the ea."
"Who will be his trainers?"
"He will have the old retinue Dela
ney, MeVea and O'Donnell. As to the
latter, I think he is the best man on
earth, barring, of course, the champion.
He is the only man besides Corbett who
has a clean record of victories, and I
think that men like Maher and Choyn
ski -would be children in his hands. As
for Mitchell, I will bet $10,000 that O'
Donnell can "whip him in eii-ht round."
"What will Corbett weigh when he
"The day before I left New Tork he
weighed 1S3 pounds, and will get at his
man at about ISO. Corbett has never
weighed over 150 in his life. Tou can
say that, while I profess to manage
only Corbett pugilistically and theatric
ally, and while I do not mix up In his
domestic affairs, the latter have tvn
grosely exaggerated. Corbett is lead
ing a correct and conservative life, nnd
any one who think- that the champion
has been going the killing pace Is away
off on his reckoning."

2r524 I-arkage of Kirk's Rata "Water
Maker Sold TMterday by the
The wonderful success that has at
tended the introduction of Kirk's Rain
Water Maker is unprecedented In the
history of Wichita. Think of it! Twea
ty-five hundred and twenty-four pack
ages sold in one day.
The merchant, the profession! man.
the mechanic and he who earns hla
bread by the sweat of his brow, one and
all endorse Kirk's latest and greatest
discovery, and Kirk's Rain Water Mak
er may justly be termed the great uni
versal preparation for properly pre
paring water for all washing puxpoM.
Geo. Mathews Not la It.
In his rounds yesterday the Eagle'
scribe came upon a little coterie of
gentlemen in the realty office of E T.
Allen on North Market street who
were being entertained by Mr. Allen
relating his experience with Kirk's
Ualn Water Maker. Mr. Allen stnrteA
out by remarking that George Math
ews the rain maker, had seemed to
strike a lead in his precipitating endea
vors this summer, at least George has
had tho good luck to shoot the sky
just as it was ready to give down.
This circumstance. Mr. Allen thought,
looked like a scheme on George's part
to hedge on the sale of Kirk's discov
ery. Nevertheless, Kirk's persistent
enterprise In keeping his "find" b-fore
the people is tending to minify Math
ews' importance as an economic fac
tor In the community, especially among
the women folk, since they have
learned that Kirk's discovery actually
discounts the clouds In preparing water
for the bath. Above all others the av
erage woman abhors hard water for
bathing and It Is she who scrupulously
watches the rain barrel to see that It
contents arc not wasted and that It
catches Its full when It rains. Now
all this Is changed: the rain barrel Is
no longer a bource of woman's solici
tude; when she wants a pleasant and
refreshing bath she fills her tub or ba
sin from the hydrant or well and by
adding a small quantity of Kirk's dis
covery she is ready for her chief delight
the bath. You see, as far as the womvn.
and their bathing and light laundrying
are concerned, the rain maker nnd his
vocation have no more Interest the,
swear by Kirk.
