THE SEVENTH DISTRICT'S 41,805,122 BUSHELS.
Do they know it in Indiana and Illinois? Do they un
derstand it in New York and Virginia? Have tlrey heard
it in Minnesota? And will the news ever reach the plains
o Ganada and Mariposa county, California? Is communi
cation intact with far-off Argentina? Kansas in 1900 had
the greatest wheat yield ever given by a state. And this
year she surpasses her own record by giving a total yield
of 90,270,000 bushels. This- yield is 35,946,200 bushels
more than was last year's. It is greater by 200,000 bush
els than the crop of 190L It tops the record yield of 1900.
Stamp this figure in your mind: 257,000,000 bushels.
.That is what Kansas has produced in three years, a
groater bulk of breadstuff than was ever produced before
in a like length of time by any state, suzerainty, prov
iic department, county, shire or subdivision whatever
o.i thv surface of a competitively productive earth.
There are features to the fact that will interest Kan
gas as much as the grand total will arrest the attention
o,' tho producing and consuming world. Several of the
foremost wheat producing counties of Kansas, notably
those in the southeastern part o tho state, were short
tikis yar. Where was their delinquency supplied? In
western Kansas. Take the counties west from the Butler
county line, for instance, Sumner, 3,48C,7S0; Sedgwick,
1,782,705; Harvey, 987,899; McPherson, 1.650,915; Bar?
p9r,2,220,56S; Kingman 1,927,773; Reno, 2,731,395; Rice,
2,297,821; Barber, 832,340; Pratt, 2,467,620; Stafford,
2,981,307; Barton, 5,004,305; Comanche, 227,836; Kiowa,
S.J4.13S; Pawnee, 2,881,152; Clark, 117,870; Ford, 1,200,
4.23; Edwards, 1,548,417; Rush, 3,879,040; Ness, 1,761,620;
Xane, 787,797; Scott, 112,989; Hodgeman, 573,478; Meade,
188,824; Wichita, 91,836; Gray, 178,770; Haskell, 27,408;
Seward. 7,014; Finney, 44,460.
In other words, the Seventh district produced 41,805,
122 bushels, nearly half this record-breaking yield of the
whote state of Kansas. It is- a thing to marvel over, to
rejoice about and to relate to a wondering world; that
the district which has the big pasture lands of the state
outstrips all sections in wheat as well.
THE WINFIELD TRAGEDY.
When lunacy takes a homicidal turn, as It did with
such terrible results in Winfield Thursday evening, the
tragedy differs from all others in that the victim is al
ways blameless and unsuspecting, and the perpetrator
irresponsible and not mentally susceptible of any pun
ishnrent in redress for his awful work.
Gilbert Twigg, who shot into a pleasure crowd in
Winfield, killed four, wounded a score of others, and died
himself, was the owner of a diseased 'mind, the holder of
a mad fancy, a fancy that he was aggrieved at the com
munity or at soms person jn the community. His wild,
murderous assault on the thick of a general gathering
was the passion o some hidden fragment of a destroyed
mind. - -
Tho w6rld extends to tho mourning and stricken city
of Winfield and her citizens hc'artf< sympathy, knowing
that the shock of this terrible tragedy can scarcely be
Comprehended except by those who were present when
it took place or who numbered the victims among their
frieudaj and relatives.
It is -usual to sook, aftor such tragedies, some pre
ventive for the future. No one can determine when any
reputodly sane person is going suddenly to take this in
sane murderous turn, and it is felt that all humanity is
mom or leas in danger of unsuspected maniacs. But on
another score a remedy does suggest itself. The owner
ship and possession of firearms is entirely too promiscu
ous everywhere and particularly in the west. Some cur
tailment has been attempted and accomplished by the
concealed weapon prohibition. But some further benefits
may accrue to society at large by legal enactments which
will keop firearms out of the hands of people who
have no business with them, who are not responsible, and
who can not explain a legitimate purpose for their pos
session. It may be said that the murderer would, if all
the guns and pistols in the world were destroyed, resort
to the knife But the knife could cause no such awful
slaughtor as that -which took place in Winfield.
ONE POINT IN DIPLOMATIC LAW.'
Whilo it is the greatest international crime to kill a
consul. Why shouldn't it be the greatest international fas
graoe for a consul to so fur forget his international char
actor a? to ttrikc a foreign soldier? If the English or
Frtu'h ambassador at Washington should forage upon
tho domestic preserves of an Amorican gentleman, would
it bt any vorso to shoot him on Lb spot than if he was
an American it v ruder?
Cvnstil Kos.j jvoski of Russia ?ct an'v because a
Tt.ikish f .i'.!fr ftiilod to salute him in accordance with
hib :.lca of his uterts and he struck the oGll'.r a severe
hi v. with his iVug whip or other weajci Thereupon
tl.e incensed soldier shot tho tyrannical or abisiva consul
as he would anybody else. Now there is talk of war be
tween the" two countries unless tho sultan puts that sol
dier to death.
It ia true that Rostkovoski no longer lives and no pun
ishment can be visited upon him, but tho nations owe it
to the science of diplomacy to instruct their diplomats
that they are only rqpresentatives of a civilised country
while they conduct themselves in a civilized manner.
Should an American consul, through intoxication, pas
sion or crime, make himself obnoxious, disreputable or
felonious in a foreign country, would tho foreigner whom
he abused be attacking the dignity of the United States
in administering a stinging rebuke in tho -way of-a sword
thrust, a ready -whip or a revolver shot to tho drunken
brute who forgot his own position?
This is a point which should not be overlooked in the
discussion of th Turko-Russlan incident. No consul or
ambassador, even is worthy of better treatment than he
gives to tho humblest of the people to whose government
he is accredited.
YOUNG MEN ON WALL STREET.
Some of the younger men who are struck down in tho
battle of Wall street never get'bn their feet again at alL
The secret of this fact is that, unlike the veterans, they
erale jrito mere hangers-on, thence oftentimes into part
and parcel of the human wreckage that is swept up and
Luxurious living and a high standard of expenses are

Their town house or splendid bachelor apartment
within easy distance of Sherry's, the Waldorf-Astoria and
clubdom and cafeland generally, is only one item in the
budget, since the country estate on Long Island or in
"Westchester is now considered obligatory, and, of course,
no well conducted' prince of prodigality can get along
without a yacht of his own to convey him and his friends
over the waters of the sound to and from his counting
house, nco arrived at the suburban estate, Italian gardens
smile, conservatories are in bloom, there are blooded
horses in the stable and polo ponies at command, while
the now inevitable monster French automobile puffs and
snorts, anxious to be. up and away in the hands of the
amateur or professional chauffeur, to the consternation
of the passing farmer and the horror of timid country folk
in their primitive carryalls.
Italian gardens, conservatories, automobiles, horses,
polo ponies and polo games, yacht and equipage, four-in-hand
coach, all take many lucrative turns of Wall street's
fortune wheel to maintain, and when that wheel goes
the wrong way, when fortune frowns, when creditors
clamor and there is the deuce to pay generally, why, then,
the other side of the picture comes to view.
The pleasure purchased by gold fades from rose color

WHY THE SHANGHAI WENT.
"What," asks a subscriber of Tom McNeal of tho Mail
and Breeze, has become of the Shanghai breed of chick
ens that used to be so numerous in the days of my youth?
Are any of them still extant?"
Mr. McNeal replies: "We cannot say. 'We have not
seen a Shanghai hen or rooster for many years, and con
clude that they must have gone out of favor with breed
ers of fowls. In this connection we are reminded of a
description of the Shanghai written a good many years
ago by Josh Billings, -which ran as follows: 'The Shang
haireuster is a gintile, and gin'rally speaks in a forun
tung. He is bilt on piles like our Sandy Hill crane. If
he had been bilt with legs he would resembul the Peru
vian lama. He is pot a game animal, but quite often
comes off second best in a ruff and tumble fite, like the
Injuns that kan't stand civilization and are ast disap
pearing. Tha roost on the ground similar to the mud
turkie. Tha often go to sleep standing, and sometimes
pitch over, and when they do they enter the ground like
a pickaxe. Their feed consists uv corn in the ear. Tha
crow like a jackass troubled with bnokeesucks. Tha will
eat as much tu onct az a district skule master, and
generally sit down rite oph to keep from tipping over.
Tha are dreadful unhandy to cook; you have to bile one
end uv them at a time; you kan't git them awl into a
potash kittlo to onct The female reuster lays an egg as
big as a cokenut and is sick for a week afterward, and
when she hatches out a litter of young Shanghais she has
to brood over them standing, and then kan't kiver but
three uv them; the rest stand around on the outside like
boys around a cirkus tent, gitting a peep under the kan
vass whenever they kan. The man who fust brought the
breed into this country ought to own them all and be
obliged to feed them on grasshoppers caught bi hand. I
never owned but one and he got choked to death by a
kink in a clothes line, but not till he had swallowed IS
feet ov it Not enny Shanghai for mo if you please; I
would rather board a traveling colporter, and az for eat
ing one, give me a biled owl rare done, or a turkeo buz
zard roasted hole and stuffed with a pair of Injun rubber
boots, but not enny Shanhai for ho, not a Shanghi!'"
The action of Warden Jewett of the state peniten
tiary in refusing to sell lace made by Jessie Morrison to
a church fair society to bo auctioned off in the interest
of missionary work will be approved by all people having
a decent conception of the ethical limits of Christian
prprnotion inside as well as outside of the church.

A STENOGRAPHERS' UNION.
To the Eagle:
The question of a STENOGRAPHERS'
Union is one which has had no attention
:n Wichita tw yet.
We have unions and societies among
nearly every other calling profession,
but the stenographers and bookkeepers
and, who doubts but what the unions of
bricklayers, carpenters, printers, etc,
have done a great deal of good and have
lilted the members to a higher plain and
a better earning capacity; that is, In the
cases of those who have Ftudied and
have taken an interest in the questions
pertaining to their welfare?
But. In no other walks of life is a union
of the right sort more needed than among
tho stenographers and bookkeepers.
The suggestion of the writer, who Is
more or less conversant with the subject
in hand and who has. to some extent,
talked with and gotten the views of
Wichita's best offlce workers. Is. that if
a movement is put on foot to organize
such u union and the right m?ans are
taken, that the promoter not Ono.

of those on whose behalf it Is proposed,
but will, to the contrary, find a spirit of

toward making a successful outcome of

It remains for seme one to start the ball
