and by invitation from a couple of men,
rode in a buggy with them to Harper.
While on the road the men offered
Bouville some liquor, which he lightly

saulted and robbed Bouville and while
he was insensible, they threw him into
the buggy and after driving him four
or five miles into the country, they Wt
him all alone and penniless.
"Mothers Should Note This."
Under this caption an old physician
writes to a Cincinnati medical journal,
that in view of the fact that people liv
ing at a distance from cities are frequent
ly obliged to resort to cough mixtures
already put up for use, they should pro
vide themselves with only such reme
dies as are known to be free from opi
ates, poisons and narcotics; thus avoiding
not only danger, but even fatal results.
He recommends the recently discovered
Red Star Cough Cure which analysis and
tests bv various Boards of Health proved
to be Durelv vegetable as well as prompt.
effective and entirelv harmless.
FARM AND FARMING.
Various Items Appertaining to the Kansas
farms and Fanning.
Corn is in demand at Hiawatha.
Lawrence claims to be the fruit center
of the State.
Very little corn has as yet been planted
in Cherokee county.
They are shipping tomatoes out in
Jewell county for $6 per bushel and cu
cumbers for $4.
Olathe Republican: The wheat is do
ing very well that in the bin better
than that in the field.
Burrton Monitor: Some corn was
planted last week. This week probably
two-thirds of the crop will be in. Rye is
headed out and looks well.
Osborne Farmer: The frost last week
killed many fruit blossoms, and as a
consequence, cherries and plums will be
rather scarce this year.
Independence Tribune: G. W. Smelser
has left us specimens of clover 16 inches,
blue grass 27 inches and orchard grass 33
inches high. And yet it has been said
that tame grasses are a failure in Kansas.
Speaking of Orchard Hill farm near
Lawrence the Herald-Tribune eays: Year
before last the profit on the apple pro
duct, over all expenses of work and
shipment, was $500.
Lamed Optic: a sample was shown us
of rye a few days ago that was almost
completely headed out, notwithstanding
we are having one of the most backward
Springs ever known in this part of the
country.
Seneca Tribune: Peter Palmer, a
prominent farmer and fruit grower, has
fifty acres of orchard bearing and set
out thirty-five acres more this Spring.
He does not think the late cold weather
injured any of thejTruit.
Peabody Gazette: Owing to the prevail
ing idea that tame grass is difficult to
raise, the crop is not sufficient to supply
tne nay-consumers tne iive-stocK in
terests of the State. They have wonder
fully developed in the last few years.
Nortonville News: There has been a
good prospect for a cherry crop until the
present extremely cool weather, which
it is feared will greatly injure it. A cool,
northeast wind thiB season of the year is
said to be very damaging to stone fruit.
Osborne News: Martin Monler ex
presses the opinion that his stand of
wheat this Spring is relatively about 80
per cent, as good as last year, and from
all inquiries we can make we believe
that this is a fair average the county
over.
Dodge City Cowboy: Alfalfa is a big
paying crop, and one that will never be
a failure in this country after fairly get
ting a start. The farmer who intends
to plant to small grain, forty acres of land,
will do well to put in but twenty acres,
and twenty to alfalfa. The latter will
bring the biggest returns.
Peabody Gazette: This has been a
splendid eeason for transplanting trees,
and we are glad to note so many thrifty
looking trees all over town that have
been put out this Spring, especially the
rows of beautiful maple, catalpas and
elms, that grace the borders of many of
our streets.
Newton Kamam The fruit prospects
continue to improve hereabouts, and ev
erything points to an immense crop this
year. The few slight frosts last week
seemed to do no damage, and the young
plums, peaches, apricots, apples and ber
ries of all kinds are coming on in good
shape.
Abilene Gazette: A. J. Sterling, of Ban
ner township, reports the wheat crop a
failure. He says that wheat that looked
all right and bid fair for a good crop a
few weeks ago is now dead. This seems
to be the sentiment of quite a number
of our neighboring townships and we are
made to believe the crop will be very
light. Our advice to those farmers that
still have last year's crop on hand, is to
hold it for one dollar.
Winfield Courier. The peaches this
year are numerously twins, triplets, etc.
They have a queer way of growing to

gether in knots of from two to five. Oar
nomologist is stumped for an explana
tion. A tree was examined the other
dav on one little two foot branch of
which were sixtv-four nicely formed
peaches, forty-one of which were knot
ted together in numbers from twoto five.
This is unusually prolific prolificnees
even for Cowley county,
Strong City Democrat: Some corn
planted early in this county is coming np
nicely, while other fields in the Bame
neighborhood remain with last year's
stocks not yet broken and nothing done
towards plowing, jb termers oi .Kansas ail
have their own ideas about early work
and early planting, but we always notice
that those who are farthest along with
their work in the early Spring, are the
most successful in the long run. The
season has been unusnally wet, and some
allowance must bemade for the backward
condition of farm work generally, but at
the same time neglect to do work at the
right time has occasioned the detention
of.seedine in many instances. Gardens
are looking: splendid, and promise to
bring forth an abundance of all kinds of

near Radical City, Montgomery county,
were fatally poisoned last week by eat
ing the ends oft of matches while their

citisen. The court adjudged her guilty
of a misdemeanor, and fined her a
above stated.
Atchison Globe: Mrs. Hunt, who was
buried the other day, was a remarkable
woman in one respect she was not
afraid of death and looked forward to it
with the utmost calmness. She named
the persons she desired to act as pa1!
bearers, mentioned those whom she
would like to have attend her funeral,
and paid the undertaker in advance for
his services. She desired that she
should be buried three or four feet from
her husband, so that a good foundation
could be secured for a comr&on monn
ment.
FOR COUNTRY STORE KEEPERS.
It has probably escaped the observa
tion of many general storekeepers, who
have been accustomed to carry drugs and
medicines to a considerable extent as a
part of their stock, that the law of the
last legislature relating to the practice of
pharmacy included provisions applicable
to their business in this line, as well as
to the persons carrying on the drug bus
iness exclusively. They should look
into this matter before they unwittingly
'ay themselves liable to some of the pen
alties of the law. The act referred to,
together with the amended Prohibitory
law, and one or two other statutes, is
embodied in a neat pamphlet published
by Geo. W. Crane & Co., of Topeka, and
mailed to any address for 25 cents.

tertainment you may be assured that
those who attend will have a good time.
Columbus Border-Star: The supper
given by the Relief Corps of the G. A.R.
last week was a financial and social suc
cess. The ladies did all in their power
to insure a pleasant time and they suc
ceeded. Entertainments, where cold
formality is laid aside, are generally
whole-souled successes.
The Weight or the San.
New York World.
An astronomer gives us an idea of the
relative weight of the sun'and the earth
as follows: "Let us, to start with, weigh
the sun. Suppose we have a balance gi
gantic enough for the purpose, and the
sun is resting on one of the scales. Now
put the earth in the opposite scale. You
might as well weigh your head against
one of the towers of East river bridge.
Pile a hundred thousand earths into the
balance, and the sun-does not stir. There
lies the colossus immovable. But get to
gether another hundred thousand, and
then another hundred thousand, and
stack them up in the pan against the
sun. Three hundred thousand worlds
piled up on one Bide of the balance and
and still the sun keeps them up. It
would take thirty thousand more or 333,
000 earths, to make the beam even
against a single sun, and six sextillions
is the number representing the weight
of the earth in tons, a mass which is
shooting through the space at the rate of
eigmeen miiea m a eetuuu.
Incidents of the Tamal Fight.
London Papers.
Suddenly there was a great cry of
alarm, rising loud above the din of the
fatigue parties and the accompanying
bustle of the great camp, and then
hoarse cries from the officers; "Stand to
your arms, meni" As the squares
formed the eighteenth cavalry scouts
came rushing in crashing through our
own lines and then we saw and heard
the leaping, roaring, fantastic yet terrible-looking
wave of black forms, which
we knew was the enemy in strong, in
overwhelming, force. Then came the
terrible stampede of baggage animals
hones, camels, mules, in one struggling,
screeching, helpless confused mass. The
uproar was terrible.
Meanwhile the enemy had leaped the
zereba and captured the sandbag re
doubt at the corner, hewing and slash
ing with their cross-hilted swords, and
stabbing right and left with their ter
rible spears. Colonel Huyshe was at

tacked by three Arabs, all of whom he
shot dead,one actu; lly falling against his
norse. Ine scene ineide the zereba was
something terrible. A hand-to-hand
combat raged everywhere; the Arab
swordsmen were slashing and cutting at
soldiers, camels and horses alike; the
native infantry w ei e inextricably mixed
up with the flying stream of bajj;age
mules and camels; bullets were whistl
ing from all points.
At 10 o'clock the moon came out and
sh'one brightly. A walk round the
zereba by its light makes the battle-field
even more gastly and impressive. Here
within the zereba the ground is encum
bered with dead and wounded camels
and horses, and it is littered with cloth
ing and portions ot the kits of the dead
and living. In the center of the zereba
a few water barrels, arranged in line,
form a rendezvous for the officers. All
over the ground are patches of blood
and brains. In one corner of the zereba
lie the two rows of our dead. The
bodies of the enemy lie thick over the
plains in every imaginable attitude.
Immediately beneath the zereba hedge
they are most numerous a proof of the
desperate gallantry with which they
came on, with spear and shield, knob
kerry and camel Btick. But there were
others still more brave, for from our zer
eba alone seventy or eighty bodies were
dragged out into the plain by our men
before nightfall.

The Punka.
The punka is an institution which
travelers in India always admire, not
so much for its beauty as for its useful
ness. Tt is a cloth mounted in a frame
from three to four feet wide, and the
length of the room in which it is placed.
sujpan lei from the ceiling by two ropes
or cords, one at either end. The punka
id kept constantly moving back and
forth, and serves the purpose of a fan.
In India the motive power is a native
boy on the roof, and he is called a pun
ka wallah, wallah being the Indian word
for boy, and boys in India often being
men of 40 years of age. In the dining
room of a dwelling the punka hangs di
rectly over the table and: 'rung parallel to
it, thus affording a grateful breeze to the
assembled guests when in motion. The
East Indian steamers have punkas in
the dining rooms, which are worked by
steam power from the engine room. In
church a small punka bangs over every
pew. The punka wallhsa make a strik
ing figure, turb&ned-snd dressed in
white, with a dozen of them in uniform
motion with their dreamy, sleepy eyes
tugging at their cords, while their Eng
lish lords worship, form a subject for a

Junction City Republican: Just as we
go to preee we received the information
of the death of Herman Yonnkie. He
was digging a well deeper for G.P. Baird
and touched off a blast jottbefoxe going
n to supper. After supper he went out
and lowered himself into the well, and
the air was so foul that it overcame him.
The body was not taken from the well
until about 7 o'clock next morning, the
citizens there not deeming it safe to have
any one lowered into the well.
