The two physi cians worked with their patient until about O.SO o'clock, but nothing could be done, as the case resisted their efforts and the patient gradually sank until 10 o'clock, when death came. Dr. McAdams said that he could not state positively what kind of an opiate caused Mr. Grady's death, but it was evident that death resulted frons that cause. Mr. Grady was well known in Wichita having resided hero for the past twenty- five years. He was a traveling sales man for a wholesale lumber cmipiiiy. and had been in the lumber business for a great many years. Before moving io Wichita, Sir. Grady resided in Arkansas City, where he was interested in the lum ber business. He leaves a widow, two sons and a daughter. One of the sons, Chester, and the mother were present at the bedside when the end came. The other son and daughter, who reside out of the city, will arrive sometime today to attend the funeral.

WORK WILL BEGIN SOON Details to Be Arranged the Coming Week, JOHN CUDAHY HERE. Improvements Going on at the Two Packing Houses. John Cudahy, of Chicago, is in the city on business in connection with the Cudahy packing plant of this place. It is quite probable that many improvements will bo made in the near future at a cost of thousands of dollars. The business of the plant strikes Mr. Cudahy favorably and he deems it the proper move to increase the capacity' and facilities of the ma chinery at this time ana, while no definite announcements j.ave as yet been made concerning the improvements, it is al most a certainty that the necessary work will be done. The work of completing the installation of a new $50,000 ice machine at the Dold packmg plant is progressing very nicely. and within the next few davs every thing in that connection will be done.

About fifty members of the Anti-Horse Thief association, from the surrounding country, held a meeting at the court house yesterday morning, for the pur pose of forming a county organization of the association. Of the twenty-one sub-lodges in the county, seventeen were represented at yesterday's meeting. The constitution and by-laws were framed and the elec tion of officers will probably be held at the next meeting, on June II, at the court house, in the sheriff's office. Copies of the constitution and by-laws were given to the representatives of each sub-order and each order will discuss the adoption of the same at their next meeting and report at the meeting of Juno 11. The principal object which the associ ation has in view in forming a county t rganization is to make a larger re ward for petit and grand larceny by bringing the sub-orders together. This will b.-; done by assessing a small per capita tax on each sub-order, according ( to its membership. The reward will be placed at fo0 for petit larceny and 51CO Geo. H. Lawrence, manager of the Hamilton hotel, at the corner of Main and Waterman, said yesterday that plans would be made next week for an addi tion of forty rooms to the hotel, and work would begin at once. Mr. Law rence said: "We have a large building here now. but it is entirely inadequate to supply the demands of our patrons. We could use forty more rooms tonicht if we had them. We have been turning away pen- pie almost every day on account of being unable to accommodate them. "It is not yet determined whether an other story will be added or an addition built on the north side. One or the other will have to be done. Just which it will be will be decided the first of this coming week." The progress and growth of the city is demonstrated in no better way than by the inability of the leading hotels to supply the demands of the public. j The Hamilton is already a four-story building, arranged with every modern hotel convenience, and the addition will Lest We Forget Tomorrow, Decoration Day and don't forget if you need Clothing for this occasion or for any occasion, that you save money, you save time, you save worry and you take no risk when you buy the "H.

Cassell, local agent of the Pacific Express company, yesterday received a draft for 51,000, which was paid immedi ately to the Kansas National bank in re turn for a similar amount of money lost by O.
