-vspp Uk ,.J r-' 1; ?f "'- fo KANSAS STATE NEWS. Oren Larriway, the man -who murder ed Prank Kruzen, in Butler county last fell, was safely landed in the peniten tiary the other day, by the sheriff of that county. This murder was one of the most cold-bloodedin the criminal annals of the state, and has attracted much atten tion from the mystery which for a long time over-shadowed the killing. Larri "way, together with Frank Kruzen and wife, came to this state last summer or fall from Dakota to locate a homestead, stopping in Butler county. After stop ping awhile there, Kruzen mysteriously disappeared, and then Larriway and the "woman left that county, giving out that Xruzen had gone ahead to seek another locution. After awhile the suspicions of the settlers were aroused, who instituted earch and found the body of Kruzen in a shallow grave, in some brush on the banks of a creek, but Larriway and Mrs. JCruzen had made good their escape. The officers of Butler county searched diligently and succeeded in unearthing them in Nebraska where they were liv ing together as man and wife. They were brought back to Butler county, his case was tried at the seoent term of court there, and was sen tenced to be hung, but the case against Mrs. Kruzen was continued until the next term of court. As a passenger train on the Burling ton & Missouri railroad was nearing Hanover, Washington county, the other day. Engineer Frank Watson discovered a child on the bridge. Be immediately reversed the engine, and whistled down brakes, but was bo near the bridge he knew it would "be impossible to stop the train and noth ing but sudden death seemed to await the child. At this supreme moment a woman sprang upon the bridge threw 3r child off and jumped herself, only just in time to save both their lives. After slowing up, the train backed up to the bridge to find the mother kneeling over her child offering up a prayer for their deliverance, from which for a mo ment seemed sudden death. The mother and child escaped with light injuries.

One Bon and one daughter precede him to the spirit land. He leaves an aged wife, ten children, thirty-five grandchildren, foirr great-grandchildren to mourn his loss. Sellable citizens of La Cygno, who Tiaited the natural gas well of E. P. McCarty, on a farm, two miles from that dtv, report that on lighting the uncon fined gas it blazed several feet above the surface, in a flame five feet square. The flame was only put out after fifteen min ntes' persistent effort. It is asserted that there is sufficient gas in the well to supply the largest city in the state of Xansas. Drilling is progressing, with the gas raising the filings to the surface of the water. The well is down over sixty feet. At forty feet a forty-two inch vein of cheice coal was passed through. McCarty has a franchise to supply the city of La Cygne with natur al gas for the period of 'eighteen years. Newton Republican: M. L. Stewart is the owner of a mare mule which has given him considerable trouble of late. The mule took a fancy to a new born calf a few days ago and it appears that the animals formed a kind of mutual ad miration society. The degenerate calf forsook its mother with her bountiful supply of milk and followed its long eared friend. The mule exhibited every sign of affection and although the calf lacerated her udder in its fruitless efforts to appease its hunger, she made no resist ance. Four Greenwood county criminals were sentenced to the penitentiary at a xeoent term of the district court at Eureka. John A. Nelson, got four years; two years each for forgery and obtain ing goods under false pretense; Richard Dick, two years for grand larceny; Wm. Murphy, two years for forgery; J. J. Pinkerton, two years, for getting drunk and backing a train into the depot at Severy. In 1873 a citizen of Washington county, -was offered a quarter section of land -which had timber, water, and bottom land, with $1,000 worth of improvements, for a yoke of oxen and wagon, ilo said lie would have traded but couldn't spare the wagon. The land lays five miles -northwest of Hanover, and is now worth some $7,000. Wichata Beacon: In 1880 the rate of taxation in Sedgwick county was $4.31 on each hundred dollars of aseesed val--zi&tion which was only 25 per cent of the real value. In 1885 the rate had been reduced thirty per cent, being $3.08. A Kansas state sportsmen's association was formed at Leavenworth, and com moittees were appointed to report a con stitution and by-laws at the next meet ing, which takes place at Atchison in October. The citizens of Osbomo, Osborne oounty, are dicussing the feasabihty of patting in a system of water works. STOCK AND FARMING. Ellsworth Reporter: Joseph Byrne bas presented us with samples of blue pass, red and white clover and orchard .grass raised on this ranch. The sam ples were as fine as we ever looked at. We. learned from Mr. Byrne that the xanch now contains 40,000 acres, all un der fence and 2,000 acres are under cul tivation and planted in corn, rye, oats ad millet In addition to the feed raised on the ranch, they purchase from 35, 000 bushels of corn per year to feed the stock on this place, which consists of irom four to five thousand head of cattle, 1 000 brood mares, about 30 head of inules, and 200 head of horses besides a number of thoroughbred horses, bulls and jacks. Clyde Herald: James Moorehouse aad William Page, with one lister, put in .igkty acres of com msadaya That Enldbe planting corn at the rate of 13 acresperday. What a rsst miprove ttiris Method is over the old. It havebeeniwthsaghiydoUars to planted with aJwe,worfd bare required fifty dollars more. Here is a cutting down of four-fifths in the cost of putting in a crop of corn. And then, too, think that all this work can be done without paying out any cash, for, an able bodied fanner can do all this work without hir ing a hand. Some of tho western cattlemen think the idea of sending frozen beef to mar ket a good one and would like to see its adoption generally, while the eastern butchers are holding conventions and denouncing frozen beef in ten different languages. The butchers have one ad vantage in having the railroad com panies with them, but even that will be and was carried to his home in a very low and critical condition. Southeast Kansas farmers want it un derstood that the stock interest of the state is not confined to the north or west part, but say they have as fine every day stock farms as can be found in the west and to get up something more than ordinary interest, they are having cattle shows in some of their county towns. We know of nothing better adopted to attract attention to their stock than these shows, and if they keep them up until in rhe fall, the whole country will be talking about the live stock shows in southeastern Kansas. Larned Optic: Mr. John Hall, who lives near Pawnee Bock, in thiB county, says he has considerable blue grass on his place which is of voluntary growth. He says it is making its appearance in many places in his part of the county, and he thinks it spread from the old Santa Fe trail. Kansas City Live-Stock Indicator. The good ladies most versed in duck lore say that the great secret of raising young ducks is not to allow them to get wet. Give them all the water they can drink, in vessels so constructed, as to permit them to reach water only with their bills. The Carbondale Astonisher and Para lyzer states that there was no memorial day observance at that place on account of the fact that there were no soldiers buried in the cemetry there. However, there is a large thriving post of the Grand Army at Carbondale. Westmoreland Recorder: The wheat prospect seems to be improving in this vicinity. Wherever there was anything of a stand it has stooled out and covers the ground much better than was indi cated by appearances in the early spring. St. Marys Express: Many farmers and those having shelled corn on storage complain of the product undergoing a heating' process. Kansas Farmer: When stocking grain, let the sheaves stand erect, leaning only toward the center of the shock if it is round, or toward the center of their com panion sheaves if the shock is' long. Clark county in the northwest, is one of tli9 most promising, as far as a boun tiful crop is concerned, or of any in the state, although the calf crop teems to be in the lead. The farmers all over the state say that the tame grasses that were sown in the spring of 1885 are doing remarkably well. A large corn crop has been put in this year in Dickinson county. KANSAS CHURCHES. The First Baptist church of Wa Keeney was organized the other day. The new Baptist church, at Hays City, Ellis county, was dedicated the other day. A new Presbjterian church at Chase, Bice county, was dedicated the other day. Numerous accessions are reported to the Christian church of Hutchinson, Keno, county. The new Baptist church which is being erected at Kingman, Kingman county, is to cost $4,000. Four lots have been presented to the Catholics in West Wichita, on which to erect church buildings. The new Congregational church which is to be erected at Clay Center, Clay county, is to cost $3,800. The new Methodist parsonage at Sara toga, Pratt county, has been completed and a pastor installed therein. Tho new M. E. church at Saratoga, Pratt county, is nearly completed. When finished it will be the finest churches in Pratt county. The plans of the new Baptist church which is soon to be erected at Ellsworth, Fllsworth county, are completed. The new edifice will be large, commodions and handsome. The trustees of the TJ. B. church, of Russell, have decided to build a new church this summer. A good location has been secured, and work on the foun dation has begun. Work is being rapidly pushed on the new Baptist church at Cuba. The seat ing capacity will be about two hundred, and will be open to the free use of all religious denominations for the present. Jewell City Republican: A new M. E. church is to be built in Prairie town ship. The dimensions of the structure will be 28x50 and the cost $1,400. When the subscription paper had been out four days $700 had been subscribed. Bev. James G. Merrill, of St. Louis, lately visited his old church at Topeka, now under the pastorate of the "Bev. Linus Blakely. Out of four hundred and fifty of his old parishioners but thir ty are now in Topeka. The new Baptist church of Wichita is to be known as the Baptist Mission chapel. One generous citizen gives the lot upon which it is to be erected, and in addition promises that as soon as $2,500 are raised to subscribe an additional $1, 000, which is indeed a very generous gift. Newton Rebublican: In the matter of church building, Newton people come to the front this spring. First the Pres byterians erected that commodious and comfortable, yes really elegant parsonage and followed this by making extensive repairs and improvements in their house of worship. Then the Catholics over hauled their church edifice. Its interior was made very neat and cosy. The United Presbyterians are constructing a snug cnurcn wnicn win cose several thousand dollars. Now it is announced that the Methodists will build a parson age and a large addition to their houso of worship. Beoently the Congrega tionalistB have purchased tro lots, and a good brick or stone church will shortly be 9rected. The missionary society has agreed to put fifteen hundred dollars in to the building and liberal contributions are expected from other churches of the same denomination. It is probable that other churches in this city have made improvements in their property recently but we do not recall them now. The ex amples cited show great activity in this direction. Tongaline is giving general Batiefac tion in my practice. It is doing all it is claimed it will do. G. C. Seifert, M. D., Cantrall, Bis. GRAND ARMY GLEANINGS. Troy Chief: During the war, Doni phan county recruited eleven companies of soldiers for the union army, not count ing the fifteenth regiment, which got in too late for actual service. It raised one company (the first one) for the First reg iment, one for the Seventh, and one for the Eighth, one for the Tenth, three for the Thirteenth, and three for the Four teenth. Of course a number of these soldiers came from other counties and states; but on the other hand, many Doniphan county men enlisted in com ranieB recruited in adjoining counties, and in Missouri, Illinois, Nebraska, and other regiments. There were fully enough of those to offset the others. Doniphan county did not furnish a man less than 1,00Q to fight in the war for the union. Of course, they were not all residents or old enough for soldiers at the beginning of the war, as one thous and would have taken nearly the entire male population of military age at the becrinniner of the war. Many enlisted who came in during the wnr, and many more who arrived at a proper age in the latter years of the war. No county of equal population in the United States can show a better record. Ellsworth Reporter: Ever since we have been a resident of Ellsworth, our aged mother has, on each decoration day, sent us by mail, a package of flowers from her home garden in Iowa, to place upon the graves of our soldier dead in the Ellsworth cemetery. This year we received the annual donation, but one day too late to strew upon the graves of our dead in the cemetery. We therefore, placed them upon our table and in imagination strewed them upon the graves of our comrades, who marched off to the war with us, from that dear old Iowa town in 1861, and who not only not returned, but are sleeping in unknown graves, scattered here and there on Shiloh's dark and bloody field, around Vicksburg, Kennesaw mountain and the march to the sea. Eeece Sunfloicer: One or two parties are very indignant because at the meet ing of the ex-soldiers of the union to make arrangements for the proper obser vance of memorial day the names of two colored union soldiers were placed upon one of the committee. Each of these colored soldiers have honorable dis charges from the government of the United States as having been faithful and efficient defenders of the union as high a patent of manhood and nobility as can be accorded to any man, white or black, by any organization on earth and in the Grand Army of the Bepublic there is no distinction made on account of color. Ellsworth Reporter: Each succeed ing year brings more strongly into light the wounds and diseases brought about by four years' service in camp and field while fighting to preserve the union. Few of the old veterans are either strong or healthy. What a heart less or thoughtless fellow he must be who views a procession of these old veterans and glibly commented upon their hobbled gait and bent forms. Twenty years ago they were physically and mentally the pride of the land. They are older now, much older, and few will live the alloted time of three score and ten. Caldwell Journal: The new silk ban ner swung to the breeze recently for the first time by Upton post No. 27, G. A. B., is the handsomest and most costly affairs of the kind in the county. It was made by the wives of the old soldiers in the city, and shows a profusion of elegant and careful work by them. The mam mouth star in the blue ground, composed of gold stars, together with the legend, "Upton Post No. 27, G. A.B.," made that part of the banner look like especial care had been expended upon it. The post is very proud of their banner. El Dorado Times: Peter Telyea, a familiar figure to El Doradoans, and one of the oldest soldiers of the civil war, has at last secured a pension, that portion back amounting to $1,475. Hereafter he will receive $6 per month. Lyons Prohibitionist: Another sol dier boy made happy. M. D. Hart near Little Biver,has been notifed that $1,200, back pay awaits his order and that his pension has been increased from $4 to 12 per month. The veterans of Morris county are discussing the feasability of erecting a monument in Green cemetry at Council Grove. One will undoubtedly be con structed within a short time. The ex-prisioners of war residing at Dodge City, Ford county, held a meet ing the other day and formed an associa tion. The Grand Army boys in Hollenberg, Washington county, are building an ar mory 24x50. Their post is in a healthy condition. Marysville News: A. P. Mohr has re ceived a check for nearly $1,200 pension money, for disability incurred during the war. The ladies' relief corps, of Cawker City have presented Reynold's post- of that place with a handsome silk flag. LOTS OF FUN IN THEM. Novelties In Trick Articles That Delight the Practical Joker. New York Mail and Express. "New tricks for the boys?" repeated a dealer in slight-of-hand articles in re ply to a reporter's inquiry; "I should say so. There's no end to them. There is a beautiful button-hole bouquet, for instance. After placing in your coat button-hole you call the attention of a friend to its beauty and fragrance. Of course he will step forward and smell of it, when to his astonishment a nne stream of water will be thrown in his face. Where the water comes from is a mys terv. as Toucan have your hands at your aide or behind you and not touch the bo- nnof in miv manner. Then there is Stile leaping WMkey that is better than I a surprise party for making fan and get ting up an excitement. After it has been sitting quietly on the stand or ta ble, and being admired by your unsus pecting friends, it will be suddenly, and witnouE warning, wmv u wuq leap into the air and land under the table or in somebody's lap, creating a regular panic ail around, xnen mere is a cigar case that is one of the best practical jokes of tne season, xo au appearances it is an ordinary cigar case made in imitation of real leather. Ask your friend to have a cigar, at the same time handing him the case. As he attempts to open it an ugly looking gorrilla, six inches in height, suddenly pops up instead of the expect ed cigar. Another trick novelty in the cigar line consists of a light, strong metal shell, the size and shape and color of a cigar. It has a spiral spring con cealed within, that may be released at the will of the operator by slightly pressing a trigger that is attached to the small end. One end of the BnrW in permanently fastened in the shell, and the other end, which is projected when released, has a cork attached to retain it in the shell. Whe the spring is re leased it will fly out frem twelve to fif teen inches with a whirring, rattling noise, so quickly that while the person toward whom it is pointed can see some thing coming and hear it, he can not tell just what has happened until after he has seen it and made a lively effort to dodge it. "A magic nail is another interesting little trick article. A common nail is shown, and without a moment's hesita tion the performer forces it through his finger. The finger can be shown with the nail protruding from both sides. The illusion is so perfect that the specta tor will be satisfied that the wound is a genuine one. The next instant the nail can be withdrawn for examination and the finger shown without a cut, scar or wound. In another trick you exhibit a neat and pretty windmill which you blow with the greatest ease, remarking that the mill is enchanted and will only work at your command. Then hand it to any one with the request to try it. The moment he tries it he receives a startling salute, and finds lips, chin, nose and cheekB decorated with black or white, as the case may be. This has often been used with excellent effect by store keepers who wish to get rid of loungers. It is placed on the counter or showcase, and most naturally some idle curiosity seeker will pick it up and blow on it with a result that will cause him to re treat. A' good trick is done with a card which you can change into a full-blown rose by simply transferring it from one hand to the other. "What is new in trick cards?" "The wizard's pack. This is a full pack, apperantly the same as an ordinary pack, but with which wonderful and ap parently impossible tricks can be per formed. These are not done by legerde maine or slight of-hand. The secret is in the cards. Among these card tricks are the following : A card may be drawn, shuffled in the pack and cut the first time; a card may be blown from the pack after having been drawn, re turned and shuffled ; the two colors of the pack divided by one cut; the card discovered under a handkeichief ; six per sons may draw a card each, shuffle them, anl immediately after the performer at once produces them, pulling them rapidly out of the pack, one after the other; the performer may leave the room, and in his absence a card may be drawn which he on his return at once picks out of the pack." m Some Points ilbout Feet. San Francisco Chronicle. I don't believe that it is when a wo man has a small foot that she wants to show it just a little. I am open to seri ous correction, but there seems to be quite a satisfaction to a woman in know ing that she has a pretty foot, and a wo man has a way anyhow of believing ev erybody knows what she knows unless it be a secret. Then she never believes that anybody else knows it even if she's told it to them a dozen times. But when a woman has a small foot and has had it all her life, and known it and been told about it for twenty years I beg pardon, no lady is ever over that age, say ten years she gets so accus tomed to it that it ceases to be a piece of vanity. It's' the woman with the long feet and the high inBtep that wants to show them. The high instep sometime goes before a fall, and that's why people with high insteps are always said to have plenty of pride When a woman has suc ceeded in pinching a big foot into a very small shoe she does not propose that all that trouble is to be one to and all that agony suffered for nothing. So she al ways makes a point of having it display ed somehow. T beg pardon of the la dies for thus drawing attention to some thing I have no business with. I think the rudest thing I ever heard of was what one of the papers said about Mrs. Langtry, that after one of her scenes sev eral of the ladies threw flowers at her feet. Mobbing her was all very well, but throwing flowers at her feet was car rying things too far, and an outrage. Did you ever see a woman try on a pair of shoes? You have! Then you're eith er married or engaged in a shoe store, I hope. She had a lovely foot and her visitors were admiring it. They were ladies of course. A man who is not a shoe-maker dares not mention such a thing unless they are alone in a dim corner of the drawing-room where nobody can over hear. "What a beautiful foot you have, dear?" "Yes; pa says when we go to Europe he'll have a bust of it made." Song ! A French Heroine's Funeral. London Daily Telegraph. Recently there was a large gathering in the church of St. Eustache, opposite the Halles, or Central market, on the oc casion of the funeral of a venerable widow, named Lemonnier, who played a very gallant part during the commune. The Abbe Simon, rector of St Eustache, had been taken as a hostage by the com munists and was in imminent danger of being shot, when Mme. Lemonnier boldly placed herself at the head of a deputation of the Dames des Halles, and proceeded to the Hotel de Ville, Pluckily facing the executive committee, she declared that unless the rector were in his church on the following day, which happened to be Easter Sunday, the committee would hear more on the subject rom the mar ket women. The Dames des Halles were successful in their appeal and at 4 o'clock next morning the Abbe Simon "was set free. AU the clergy of St Eustache attended the funeral of the worthy Mme. Leaaoamer.' AN OPIUM EATER'S STORT. Cratvlinfr Over Bed Hot Bant of Iron In His ' Fearful Frenzy A Scientific Investiga tion anil Its Itcsults. Cincinnati Times-Star. "Opinm or death!" Ibis brief sentence was fairly hissed into the ear of a proiniueiit dragyist on Vine street by a person who, a few jears ago well off is to-day a hopeless wreck. One can scarcely realize the sufferings of an opium victim. DeQuincy has vividly portrayed it Bat who can fitly describe the joy of the rescued victim? H. C. Wilson, of Loveland, O., formerly with March, Harwood & Co., manufacturing chemists of St, Lvuis, and of the well known firm of EL C.Wilson fc Co., chemists, formerly of this city, gave oar reporter j esterday a bit of thrilling personal experience in this' line. "I have era ivied over red hot bars of iron and coals of fire," he said, in my agony daring an opium frenzy. The very thought of my sufferings freezes my blood and chills my bones. I was then eating over 30 grains of opium daily." "How did you contract the habit?" "Excessive business careB broke me down and my doctor prescribed opium ! That is the way nine-tenths of cases commence. When I determined to stop, however; I found I could not do it, "You may be surprised to know, ''he said, "that two-fifths of the slaves of morphine and opium are physicians. Many of these I met. We studied our cases caret nil v. We found out what the orgaDS were in which the appetite was developed and sustained ; that no victim was free from a demoralized condition of those organs ; that the" hope of a cure depended entirely upon the degree of vigor which could be imparted to them. I have seen patients, while undergoing treat ment, compelled to resort to opium again to deaden the horrible pain in those organs. I marvel how I ever escaped." "Do you mean to say, Mr. Wilson, that you have conquered the habit?" "Indeed I have." "Do you object to telling me how?" "No, sir. Studying the matter with sev eral opium-eating physicians, we became satisfied that the appetite for opium was lo cated in the kidneys and liver. Our next object was to find a specific for restoring those organs to health. The physicians, much against their code, addresstd their at tention to a certain remedy and became thoroughly convinced on its scientific merits alone that it was the only one that could be relied upon in every case of disordered kid neys and liver. 1 thereupon began using it and, supplementing it with my own special treatment, finally got fully over the habit. I may say that the most important part of the treatment is to get those organs first into good working condition, for in them the appetite originates and is sustained, and in them over ninety per cent of all other human ailments originate." "For the last seven years this position has been taken by the proprietors of that rem edy and finally it ie becoming an acknowl edged 'scientific truth among the medical profession ; many of them, however, do not openly acknowledge it, and yet, knowing they have no other scfentifio specific, their code not allowing them to use it? they buy it upon the quiet and prescribe it in their own bottles." "As I said before, the opium and mor phine h ibits can never bo cured until the appetite for them is routed out of the kid nejs and liver. I na7e tried cverj thing, experimented with everything and as the re-nit of my studies and investigation, I can say I know nothing can accomplish this re sult but Warner's safe cure."' "Have others tiied jour treatment?" "Yes sir, many; and all who have followed it fully have recovered. Several of them who did not fir-.t treat their kidneys and liver for six or eight weeks, as I advised them, completely failed. This form of treat ment is always insisted upon for all patients, whether treated by mail or at the Loveland Opium Institute, and supplemente'd by our special private treatment, it alivays cum." Mr. Wilnn stands very high wherever known. His experience is only another proof of the wonderful und conceded power of Warner's safe cure over all diseases of the kidiipj s, liver and blood, and the diseases caused by derangements of those organs. We may say that it is very fluttering to the proprietors of Warner's safe cure that it has received the highest medical endorsement and, alter persistent study, it is admitted by scientists that there i3 nothing in materia inedica for the re-toration of those great or gans that equals it in power. We take pleas ure in publishing the above statements coming from fo reliable a source as Mr. Wil ton and confirming by personal experience what we have time and agan publi-hed m our columns. We also extend to the propri etors our hearty congratulations on the re sults wrought. A New Surgical Operation. I witnessed a novel and decidedly in teresting surgical operation at a clinic of the new Ophthalmic college this week. It consisted of what is Jaiown as "intur batioa of tho larnyx, an operation which is superseding tracheotomy, or cutting into the wind-pipe or larnyx. The pa tient was a little child, almost suffocat ing from the effects of membranus croup. Hitherto children so afflicted or suffer ing from diptheria have had to undergo the old-fashioned process of cutting from the outside an operation at once cruel and painful. Many children have succumb ed to these diseases because their parents objected to tracheotomy and the dread filimins their children would have to endure, but it would appear, from the experiments and evidence of experts, that this old fogy carving is to be shelved. In inturbatiou the operation consists in passing a small silver tube through the mouth and down to the vo cal cords, through which it passed. The handle, or "carrier," is then detached by a spring and withdrawn, leaving the lit tle tube in position, a flange at its su perior extremity preventing its slipping through the vocal cords into the wind pipe. By the introduction of the tube instant relief from sufforcation is obtain ed, and the child falls at once into an easy, refreshing sleep. After three or four days the handle is passed dowa the throat and attached by a simple mechan ism, and the tube brought out. By this means the patient is afforded free breath ing, and respiration, and, with other treatment of a medical kind, soon recov ers. In explanation the operation to a post graduate class, Professor Greene said: "I regard this operation as a triumph in surgery, as it is bloodless, painless, rapid and leaves no open wound subject to infection. The old operation of cutting into the windpipe was horrifying to the mother, who usu ally hesitated between sure death by suffocation and the obligation to see her own offspring winch under the often times brutal surgeon's knife. She would not as a rule submit her babe to the sanguinary operation, until the poison had taken hold of his system, and all hope was lost" Theodore Tllton's Vanity. Olive Logan. I followed Tilton in a lecture course in a western town once, and was half paralyzed during my conference by the glare of a fearfully strong lamp which was set up in front of me. After the lecture was over I said to the committee, "Oh, that light is terrible ! "What is it ? "What made you put, it there P' They answered: "It is the headlight of a loco motive. "We put it there at the sugges tion of Theodore Tilton, who said he wanted his features thrown out to the audience." That gave me rather a powerful idea of Tilton's vanity.
