Mies Blanch Jett won the prize offered -to the beet looking young lady by the audience at a concert in &imp8on,.Mitch ell county. Several ladies of Clyde county are con tributers to the Clyde Mail and it is said their contributions are well written and readable. Two Mankato, Jewell county ladies differed over a t mall matter a few days ago and proceeded to belabor each other with bed fclats. There are 403 more males than females in Pawnee county, as shown by the cen eus thie spring. It looks like it might be 3. good county for marriageable ladies. The "VV. C. T.

T. II. of this place se lect a committee to make an examina tion of the liquor statements on file in -each of our city drug stores. Hiawatha World: A little daughter of .A If. Levick, living near Seneca, was bit ten by a rattlesnake a few days ago. She was playing near the corn crib, when the srjake darted its head out and bit her on the finger. Columbus Courier: A young lady by the name of Ellen McCabe was brought down from Weir City last week, and af ter a full hearing adjudged insane. She will be taken to the asylum as soon as she can be admitted. The ladies of Arkansas City have started quite an agitation on the question of woman suffrage. They have organ ized a society and hold regular meetings. They compel their husbands to attend and take a part in heir meetings. A girl 13 years of age, eloped with a man 21 at Udall, Cowley county, a few days ago. The man now lies in the Win field city jail repeating that ancient but very appropriate sayine which speaks something about the "course of true love not running very Bmooth." Mrs. Burnett, the Topeka shoplifter, has been bound over to the district court in the sum of $1500 bond failing to give which she went to jail. She still insists in her innocence notwithstanning the fact that $500 dollars worth of stolen dry goods were found on her person. Burlington Patriot: Some one has said "woman at best is a deceptive creature." We don't know anything about that, but -we should judge being deceived was the most pleasant feature of the whole thing. It's the "undeceived" part of the busi ness that gripes. Wamego Reporter: It is reported that a number of Wamego ladies interested in painting are about to form a class for the study of landscape and portrait painting, and that an experienced artist has agreed to come here to give instruc tions. It is to be hoped the rumor is Veil founded, as painting is a most de lightful and elevating diversion. Clyde Herald: Last Wednesday we had the pleasure of witnessing the first delegated body of women everassembled in Cloud county, it being the occasion of the convention of the W. C. T. U., for the purpose of a county oiganization, and we must say that we were well pleased with the manner in which it was conducted, showing, as it did, how well our ladies were calculated to conduct a delegated convention. The disappearance of a Mrs. C. Burnett had been causing considerable excitment in a Topeka neighborhood for some days past, but it was finally cleared up by the discovery of certain letters which would point to her having eloped with some lover. The rather eccentric thing about the affair was that she left a rather valuable piece of property in Topeka and two children aged 17 and 18, girl and boy, respectively. Leavenworth Standard: A few days ago Maude Smith the four-year old daughter of Percy Smith who resides in the second story of Harris block, fell down the stairway in the rear of the build ding half way to the ground.then rolling off the side falling about seven feet and aligbtingon her right Bide, bruising it severely and badly scratching .the left aide of her face. The di&iance was iully thhty feet. For a time it was feared the littlt one had received fatal injuries but her recovery is now thought to be - a possibility. The Wellington Press enters its pro test against the abuse that is showered upon the defenseless heads of servant girls. While there are some that are elouchy, shiftless, dishonest and all that, there are many really good girls whom circumstances compel to accept places as domesiics to gain a living, and it is not to be wondered at that they are not the most amiable classof people in the world .upon all occasions. And as a matter of j fact they earn the money that is grud .' ingly paid to them twice over. How would a man like to get up at six o'clock in the niornine, work all day, and until nine o'clock at night, for two dollars a week, and then be growled at because he wanted to go out and visit his mother or best y Sunday afternoon? We are thankful every day of our life that we - are not a hired girl; we would rather be a reporter than a hired girl. Mrs. Lewis Carey, of Kingman, re 8isted the attempts of her drunken hus band, when he attempted to Ueat her, by 'emptying one chanaber of a revolver into fhim. This satisfied that gentleman for the time being, but when she attempted to go to the house of a friend and stay miil he recovered his proper senses he became so greatly incensed that he .knocked her down and jumping upon her prostrate form horribly beat and bruised her. The assault was so sudden and the deed so quickly perpetrated that those present did not have time to inter fere until it was too late. When they -did pull him off she immediately sprang to her feet,1 not realizing how badly she was injured, and dealt him a kick in the face that brought tDe blood. Weak and almost fainting she was then led to a wagon and hauled to the Central house, where for hours she lay unconscious. The brute was, afterconsiderable trouble, arrested and bound over in the sum oi 41,000. The woman is probably fatally injured. KANSAS FARMING. Noteworthy Incidents Among The Farmers of The State. There are 40,191 acres in prairie grass in Clay county. The value of the poultry crop of Clay county last year was $22,441. Oberlin Herald; Decatur county will this year have the largest crop of grain harvested in this section. Oberlin Herald: The best growth of wild grasses cover the western prairies this year known to the oldest settler. El Dorado Republican: The outlook for corn has greatly improved within the past two weeks. Many fields are looking first rate. Eussell Record: Reports from various portions of the county, show that while wheat will make a very slim crop, rye and oats will generally yield well. Corn is growing nicely. Millet and sorghum are getting along in good shape. Sedgwick Pantograph: The oat crop looms up immense in this section. The corn is also coming out wonderfully Bince the warm weather began in earnest; the wheat islookingsomewhat improved of late, but it will prove a light crop at best. Osage City Free Press: The farmers have now recovered from their demorali zation on account of the late spring, and are greatly encouraged at the present outlook. Corn is jumping up at a sur prising rate, and it nothing happens it will soon make up for lost time. Girard Press; A farmer of this county has K'O acres of the heaviest tame grass we have heard of in Kansas. Thirty-five acres is exclusively timothy and the balance 65 acres is mixed with Alsack clover. It was cut last week, and will average three tons to the acre. Who can beat it? This is a fair sample of what Kansas can do in a "hard times" year. The condition of crops in Crawford county is very fair, while nothing to boast of. Some farmers have commenced to thresh their wheat and a fair yield is reported, in some cases better than last year. Corn is generally in a good condi tion and a very fair yield can be expect ed. Tame grasses are being made quite a specialty of in this county this year and with very profitable results. Sedan Graphic; The "flood or web worm" is doing nearly as much damage irfthis county as the flood did. The worm is light grey in color and not larger around than a knitting needle, and varies in length from an eight to an inch in length. The ground is perfectly alive with them and they are doing im mense damage to the corn, and unless they soon disapper the corn now stand ing will be entirely destroyed. Winfield Courier: We have been shown some samples of English blue grass. One bunch was planted last spring a year and measures three feet and a half in length, and is seeding very heavily; the other, planted last spring, if two and a half feet high. About four acres altogether lifts been planted, as an experiment, and is so highly satisfactory that much more will be sown. As a meadow pasture it is unexcelled, and its adaption to this climate is an established success. Ellsworth Reporter: While it is a fact that we will not have more than half a crop of wheat in this county, it is also a fact that there are quite a number of our farmers who will have a full crop. Al most every day we hear farmers say, "I have as good wheat as I had last year," "I have the best wheat in the county," &c.. all which leads us to believe that witn the very large acreage of corn and the fine prospect lor rye, cats and other crops, Ellsworth county will come out as well as any county in the slate. Norton Courier: There are many per sons in the far west who keep large flocks of ducks and realize handsome profits from them. As many as a thousand are kept together. They are fed on wheat, and the annual cost of maintaining each is about $1.15. They lay each about twelve dozen eggs a year, which sell for twenty cents per dozen, leaving a margin of profit of about $1.25 for each duck. A person keeping a thousand ducks may count on a very good living, made in a very easy way Clay Center Times: A good rain just now would insure to us a bountiful pota the crop. Should good fortune favor us would our producers heed the lesson of the past week, and we might say years. Last fall our farmers sold their crop at thirfy to fifty cents per bushel. Now our merchants are shipping them in from Kansas City and other points and sell ing them at $1.50. The farmer thbt raises and cares for the safe keeping of potatoes and does not sell just when everybody else does, will always get a big price for his crop. This rule will apply pretty generally to all other products. One farmer of Linn county says that it is not simply luck that his corn is ahead of his neighbors', but because he selects his seed. Every fall he selects his seed and hangs it lip; then at' planting time he takes only the kernels in the middle of the ear. Doing this every year makes bis corn grow better all the time, instead of deteriorating, as is the case when the seed are taken at random from a lot left in the crib through winter. He had his ground smooth and well pulverized, and he does not leave the old stocks to pull tLe corn up when he runs the cultivator through; and as soon as the corn is well up he harrows the ground to take up all the little weeds. STOCK AOTJSS. temo Gleaned from the Kansas Press Ap pertaining to block and btodc Raielng. A man in Russell county has a Poland China sow which gave birth to sixteen pigs. Fourteen of them are still living. El Dorado Republican: Hogs which should have gone to market this month were turned to pasture on account of the scarcity of corn. Burrton Monitor. P.fter Carey's flock of lambs, 220 in number, sheared 1,160 pounds, an average of 5 5-22 pounds. His buck, Dexter, sheared 36 pounds. A Lynn county stockmen sold in Kan sas City a few days ago 101 cattle, that averaged 1,333 pounds in weight, and brought $5.10 per hundred, or $6,886.28 Mound City Clarion: A. F. Gallop fin ished shearing his flock of 3,100 sheep last week He estimates the total yield at 22,000 pounds, or about seven pounds per fleece. Phillipsburg Herald: Our Omio cor respondent tells of two mares belonging toBeward Sturtevant giving feirtb. to four colts in one week. Wm. Peterson had three calves from one cow. Monnd f!tv Clarion: A curious freak of nature here manifested itself in a'calf born last week. This animal or phe nomenon had two perfectly formed heads and necks attached to one body. The strange creature lived but a short time. Osborne Farmer. The increase to W. A. Neiswanger's herd this spring was 615 lambs; 94 per cent, of increase raised. The clip amounted to 12 363 pounds, which was shipped, as has been the cus tom lor tne past tnree years, o w. a. Gregg & Co., Philadelphia, Pa. Marysville News: One man living near Irving has 1,100 acres of choice land, ana is devoting his hole attention now to stock. He shir ped 260 head' of fat steers last week and has 125 head left, also 50 head of horses and about 400 head of hogs. Wichita Beacon: We are told that the wool fleeces this year are cleaner than usual and will compare with the usual Iowa fleeces. Prices are about two cents higher than last year which is partly due to the fact referred to. The; market is rather quiet. A man in Allen county, weighing 200 pounds, has a bull which is large enough to toss him in the air, as was practically demonstrated a few days ago. As- the bull was being led, without giving notice of his intentions, he attacked the man dnd threw him over a fence and out of reach. Peabody Graphic: A sow belonging to A. Lee, last week gave birth to a litter of pigs, one of which had two almost perfectly formed heads, one of them having an attachment that resembled the trunk of an elephant. The pig wa4 the largest of the litter, but it was dead when found by Mr. Lee. Council Grove Cosmos: One man in this county has disposed of over $7,000 worth of Hereford cattle thiB spring. He is now contem plating a tiip to England to visit the home of .this excellent breed. If he decides upon the trip he will no doubt bring back some fine specimens of Here ford stock on his return. Osage City Press; E. W. Nichols ship ped thirty-two head of fat steers to Kan sas City last week that will average not less than fifteen hundred. They were about as fine a bunch of cattle as we ever saw in this county. They ought to go as exports and if the market doesn't break Dofore they get there, they should bring about $5.35. Cawker City Journal: A very fatal plague is playing havoc among the hogs of this vicinity. J. Braund and the Kan sas live 6tock farm have suflered consid erable loss by many of their best hogs dying. When it attacks one it is almost useless to attempt a cure. In symptoms the disease is separate and distinct from the hog cholera. Dodge City Coioboy: C. M. Beeson re turned from the round up party last week. The old C. O. D. range of Beeson & Har rison has been absorbed by settlers, and the cattle, numbering about 1,300 head, have been placed in the pasture of Col. Perry. There are 11,C00 acres in this pasture and the whole tract is fenced. All of the yearlings will be turned loose outside of the pasture. This pasture has been leased for one year at the rate of twenty cents a head per month. Mr. Beeson says that the recent winter's losses among cattle in that section did not exceed seven per cent. All of the cattle are now in superior condition, and the grass is lovely to behold. State Veternarian Holcombe speaking with regard to glanders says it is a very prevalent disease in Kansas and Mis souri, and has been tor the past two years. Last year in this state alone about $100,000 worth of horses were kill ed on account of glanders, and so far this year about $60,000 worth have been killed. It is a disease which is almost impossible to stamp out because there are so many irresponsible persons who will trade and get rid of diseased an imals, knowing them to be so. There ia no cure for the disease, even in the most incipient stages. The only way is to kill the animals. And while the dis ease is causing the death of so many horses, that is not its worst feature. Several human lives have been lost in Kansas during the past year. He told us of a case in Ottawa county which he had seen, and stated that it was simply horrible. The man had three horses diseased with the glanders and under took to treat them lor the disiase. He had a slight cut on the fore finguer of his r;ght hand, eome of the matter from the horse's nostril got into it. The hand and arm commenced to swell and was soon covered with sores; then the ankles commenced to be painful and in a short time his legs were swelled to several times their natural size. In three weeks from the time he was taken with the disease he died, but for six days before he died he did not sleep a wink and suffered all the torments of the damned. There is now a man in Sum ner county said to be sick with the same disease, and there is no possible relief. Hydrophobia, only, can be a more terrible complaint. Atchison Globe; We have been shown by Mr. . Colgan a sample of a weed which has appeared in great quantities, for the first time, in his wheat held. At a distance it looks like flax, but on examination it turns out to be a weed entirely new in this coun try. Mr. Colgan was a gardener for twelve years, in addition to his experi ence as a farmer, and has never seen anything like it. A Bticky substance, like colorless honey, collects on the outside of the weed, making it very disagreeable and troublesome to walk through. The weed was exhibited on the board of tiade, but none of the members could name it Mr. Lukens at first sight pro nounced it devil's flax, an annoyance known to Pennsylvania farmers, but af terwards reconsidered this opinion, and said he did not know what it was, It was also shown to several farmers, but none of them recognized it. The weed. is a very hearty grower, and at present is confined to fall wheat ground. No Handle. Through Mail. A litflfi tnrl down on Locnst street made some fun for the neighbors recent ly. She saw a rabbit run across the back yard and called: "Oh, mamma, mamma!" "What is it, dear?" "Turn hea, awfy quick!" "Why, darling, what isthe matter?' "Dea am a 'itUe dog wifout a handle on em." A Kansas Day. Occasionally in the spring there comes a day that seems to have ail zones and seasons condensed into its briet space. Two or three such days are indelibly fixed in my memory. The ' morning may dawn upon us clear, cool, and eoft, with sparkling dew and the song of a thousand meadow larks. The sun comes gradually up above the clean cut hori zon. We feel no languor. It is a de light to live and breathe and move. The sun mounts toward the zanith, and the air begins to grow hot It is insuffera bly hot. There is no tree, no hill, no rock, to give a cooling shade, and the deep bine sky contains no passing cloud to give ub a moment's respite from the sun's blinding rays. We think regret fully of the umbrella that yesterday's wind tamed inside out, and determine to put up a tent as soon as the weather is cool euough to encourage the effort But atmospheric stillness never lasts long in Kansas. The wind begins to blow, and our stifling breath grows more free. From the south the wind comes, reaching our ears with a murmuring sound before we feel it in our faces. The prairie grass and fields of grain rise and tall, first in waves, and then in heaving billows. The wind increases in force and becomes a sirocco, scorching our faces worse than the hottest rays of the sun could do. There is no dignity in walking. We struggle with our skirts and wraps. We tie our hats down, we hold on to them with both hands, and still they escape us, and we rush madly after them. The clothes on tbe line at the next door flap wildly around, beat ing out their hems and splitting in every weakened spot, while the washer-woman is striving to keep her balance long enough to rescue them before their total destruction; lucky is she if they are not snatched from her grasp and scattered far over the prairie to be recovered. Great tumble-weeds come rolling like hoops across the plain. Here comes a market-baBket escaped from the hand o some urchin who for a moment forgot to be vigilant. We start to catch it for him, but it eludes us, and goes jumping over the prairie for half a mile or more, and is soon out of sight. A canvas-covered carriage is seized by the wind and rolled down the street. On the next house comes toppling down the stove-pipe chimney. Three or four "claim shan ties" are laid over on their sides, and the builders of the large house in the upper part of the town will have to be gin to-morrow putting up their frame anew. We think about tornadoes and cyclones, and then remark quietly, "this isn't anything; just an ordinary straight blow." Clouds of dust fill the air, pene trating the thickest veils, reddening our eyes, and sifting through the cracks of doors and windows to the utter ruin of all good housekeeping. And here it comes. In the southeast, a black cloud appears, moving rapidly. We look anxiously to see if it is funnel shaped, and a few nervous persons re treat to their cellars, or caves (that is, artifiical excavations that serve as out side cellars for some of the houses.) But. this is not a tornado, only a Kansas shower. First comes a cloud of dust, sweeping with the rapidity of a whirl wind, and veiling the town from sight The lightning blinds our eyes, and streaks the black sky with chains of light. Housewives bring sheets and pieces of old carpet to stop the cracks of the doors and windows on the wind ward side, and "hurry" must be the word, for in a moment the rain is upon us, not in drops, but in blinding sheets moving horizontally along. In a few moments the roadways are streams of running water, the tubs and rain barrels and cisterns are ovet flowing. Tho far mers exultingly exclaim, "this insures the corn crop," and the local editor writes for his item column, "what slan derer said 'drouthy Kansas'?" It is no longer rain; it is sleet and hail. Next comes a rift in the clouds, a perfect arch of rainbow, and the clouds roll away out of sight, leaving the clean washed earth dotted with flowers. The afternoon wanes. The winds are still. The sun sinks in a blaze of golden glory, and almost with a twilight the day is ended. In the ocean of dark blue ether above and round us, the moon and stars are shining. It is the perfection of glorious night. We linger in its beauty, unwilling that sleep should claim the best hours of the twenty-four,but at last, the thought of to-morrow's labors and vicissitudes drives us to our couch. We fall asleep, to awaken perhaps in a few hours and find that the bed-covering is insufficient. We wrap ourselves in all the blankets we can find, but are still c-old, and grow colder. The south wind has given place to a norther, which creeps in through the seams of the win dows, lifts the carpet in billows, and drives us back to our warmest flannels, and our rekindled fires. In weather, as in almost all phases of this prairie life, it is the unexpected which usually happens. What adjective is there, applicable to weather, that may not be used in the superlative degree here! I do not wonder that this is called "sunny Kansas," but it is also windy Kansas. Yes, it is drouthy Kansas, but it is also fertile, beautiful Kansas. July Atlantic. STRANGER THAN FICTION. Remarkable Story Connected with a Con science Fund Contribution. Washington, D. C.,June 25. The archives of the government contain many curious communications, but none, probably, possess a more romantic inter est than the following, which your cor respondent was permitted to read yester day by a treasury department official. It was a letter which accompanied a large sum of money as a contribution to the conscience fund. The writer began by stating that in the year 1866 he was a passenger on the steamship Henry Chauncey, New York to San Francisco. He was a telegraph operator, and under engagement to tbe California State Tele graph company. During the voyage he became acquainted with a gentleman who was known to his fellow passengers as Charles Edmund Hastings. m A fast friendship grew up betweln him and the; writer. Upon their arrival in San Francisco they put up at the same hotel and occupied adjoining rooms. What followed is here given in the writer's own words: "The next day I reported for duty. Late in the afternoon I re ceived, among a number of other tele grams, one from the chief inspector of the postoffice department at Washing ton, directing the authorities at San Francisco, to keep a sharp lookout for one Charles Emmons, who had stolen money to the amount of $5,000 while 'an employe of the New York postoffice. The description of Emmons tallied exactly with that pf my friend Hastings, Q. W. IP.

When I re turned to the hotel I banded it to Hast ings, and asked him to read it. I then told him my suspicions. Without going too deeply into particulars, he confessed everything. It was tho old story. He had sunk every dollar he possessed in Wall street, and in an evil moment had used the funds of the office until detec tion stared him in the face. He started for New Orleans, but, hearing that the police were on his track, conceived the daring plan of returning to New York and embarking from there for California. While search was -being made ior him in the south, he was rapidly steaming.away to the Pacific slope. At the expiration of several weeks they had probably found a new clew, which had resulted in the sending of the telegram in question. Hastings begged me not to expose Lim, and promised that under a new name and in a new country he would begin life over and in a few years make good the government's loss. I promised silence, and he disappeared that night. I learned from a mutual friend some months later that Emmons had gone to Virginia City Nev., and there died of an incurable dis ease. A few years ago, by the death of a relative, I came into possession 01 what to a man of my modest desires is an ample fortune. I desire, therefore, to make restitution to the government for the amount of Mr. Emmons' peculation, in which I have always considered my self an indirect accomplice. The sum in closed is the principal and interest to date." Cowboy 1'un. St. Paul (Minn.) Globe. "I shall never forget an experience of mine in Montana a little over two years ago," said brakeman Schultz, of the Northern Pacific. "There were Andrews, the conductor, Wylie, the engineer, Col by, the fireman, and myself running No. 3 passenger on the Montana division, and oDe night about dark we weie get ting out of Miles City, when a red light was seen by the engineer and he stopper the train. Just as it stopped about a dozen cowboys, togged out in full uni form, each with a brace of revolvera in his belt, got into the coaches, while a few more guarded the engine. I knew trouble was coming as soon as I saw them get on, and I took a seat among the passengers. The conductor did not ap pear at first to realize that anything was wrong, but went to the forward part of the coach, when half a dozen of the buckskin-clad boys grabbed him and set him upon the coal-box. He protested, but the boys paid no attention other than to tell him not to move a fiDger, as they were going to shoot the heels of his boots off. I rather enjoyed the fun, though I lay mighty close, fearing that they would notice me, but they didn't before the conductor was short the heels of his boots. He was white a9 a snow flake, but he held up bravely, fearing a miscalculated shot. Then they caoght me and tied me and a passenger back to back and set us over a seat, and then commenced betting among themselves which would pull the other over. The Btakes were put up, and then two of them got prongs and began touching us up with them. The fellow I had pitted against me was a Swede, and neither of us had any show to pull the other over; then I resorted to a stratagem, and when they gave the Swede a prong and he jumped about a foot, I pulled hard, and he came flying over the seat, and went so far over that he near broke my back. We were loosened then, and they took the Swede's bootB ofl and stood him on his head, and then played the bastinado on the soles of his feet. Well, you'd died laughing to hear that poor fellow bellow, entreat, pray and cuss those cow boys, and, although my legs were smat tering from some dances I got, I jast roared. After they had done enough mischief, they shot out the lights and left the train." Deficient In English. New York Snn.
