Congressman W. A. Harris has been taken to the seaside for his health and consequently was not in Washington when congress convened. He has a severe attack of nervous prostration. Two more trainloads of Alabama colored miners have arrived at Pittsburg for work in the mines, one going to Weir City and the other to Cherokee county, with report of more of them coming. There were 1,970 pensioners on the rolls of the Leavenworth Soldiers' home June 80, 1893. Seven hundred and eighty-three died or were discharged during the year. Their pensions range from $2 to $72 a month. This is the twelvth time congress has con vened in extra session. Wheat is rapidly ripening in Minnesota, and it now appears that the yield will be better than looked for. Secretary Hoke ' Smith has returned to Washington and now says that it will take Eome time to get his bearings and that it is likely to prove impossible to have the strip opened to settlement September 1, as he had desired. The small operators in the Kansas coal fields are working their mines; many of th& etrikers being willing to return to their old places. The operators are glad to have most of them, but will not re-employ the principal strikers. The greed of the lobbyists who are mak ing a fat thing out of percentages for col lecting their claims is all that prevents the Choctaws from giving up their separate gov ernment and coming in as a part of the United States. All the western roads are at present enjoy ing the sensation of witnessing a substantial increase in the amount of their passenger traffic. Every road in the passenger associa tion is doing more business than at any time since the opening of the fair. Colonel Duncan, the man who is making townsites for the ring, by locating the sev enty Cherokees' claims, reports that he can not finish his list before September. Then Colonel Hed Tape will have to have plenty of time to finish the job at the department. Cincinnati, 0., August 7. Dr. W. C. Peas lee, of Salt Lake City, who it was feared would die on his way here to place himself under the Amick treatment for consumption at the Cincinnati hospital, reached here al most too weak to speak, but confident of be ing cured. Brokers hustle around New York and pay 1 to 2 cents on the dollar for currency, to dealers who take it in by the littles. Then the dealers take the checks they have re ceived for currency to the banks to draw for the needs of their pay roll. The banks com plain of bad treatment. Statistics from fifty-seven trades in New York city are given to show that over 3G, 000 men are out of work and it is declared this represents only a portion of the city's unemployed. Thousands are coming from the west in search of employment and im migrants are tarrying in New York. Some anxiety is felt amomg the merchants of Argentine, Kan., at a recent order at the emelter, by which a number of men have been discharged. Heretofore the men have worked eight hours, there being three sets of men. The new order drops one shift and works the other two gangs twehe hours each. The silver men indicate a purpose to pre cipitate a silver discussion on the first working day of the extra session of congress by a reso lution of inquiry as to whether or not the sec retary of the treasury has not exceeded his authority in refusing to purchase 4,500,000 ounces in July, as provided by the Sherman law. Attorney General Engley, of Colorado, has rendered an opinion to the effect that it is within the power of the legislature to enact appropriate legislation for the establishment of a statutory depository of silver bullion and the issuance of certificates thereon, as signable by delivery and receivable by the the state in the payment of state taxes. The Santa Fe managers assert that they will not import miners except as a last re sort, feeling that the colored people, which are new to Kansas, are not such desireable citizens as those who formerly lived hero and helped build up the country. It is thought and hoped that a great, many of the home miners may yet be prc ailed upon to go to work. The feeling at the Kansas City yards the last of the week is that times are mending, the collapse of the provision corner in Chi cago and the fall movement of grain to Eu ropo both being good for the general trade of the country, releasing much money that was tied up in margins and allowing the law of supply and demand to again assert itself and produce a more healthy tone to trade. The scare is fast disappearing, and with good supply of currency the markets would be healthy again. Despite the panicky condition of the coun try and the advice of the commission men to their shippers in the country to go slow, there were received at the Kansas City, Kan., yards during July 131,896 cattle, 12,077 calves, 173, 037 hogs, 50,490 sheep and 2,739 horses and mules ; same month last year, 132,541 cattle. 16,703 calves, 167,385 hogs, 17,941 sheep and 2,138 horses, showing 6,252 more hogs, 32,540 more sheep and 601 more horses and within a few hundred as many cattle. In all, 8,344 cars, against 7,927 cars last year, when every one was working for trade and money abund ant and easy. GENERAL. MARKETS. Kansas Crrr, August 8.

V.'. 16 18 EGGS-Frosh 8 STATE NEWS- The banks of Parsons have all put in electrical alarms to be used in case of a raid by robbers. At Olathe during the passage of a circus parade, thieves stole $2,500 in money and securities from the safe of A. J. Clemons, the hardware dealer. The thieves escaped. Plainville Times: There appears to be a feeling abroad that western Kan sas is "burned up" with hot winds. This is a mistake, at least so far as this sec tion is concerned. We are not even scorched. General Sears contemplates holding the encampment of the First regiment K. N. G., in August, at Kansas City, Kansas; making the condition that ra tions shall be furnished the militia 'during ten days. The Abernathy furniture factory of Leavenworth has closed down for a period of two months and probably longer. The reason given out for clos ing was owing to the financial depres sion and the unsatisfactory condition of western trade. It is also said the high price of coal had something to do with it. Abernathy's factory employed about 150 men and boys and is one of the leading industries of Leavenworth. Prof. E. C. Murphy, of Kansas uni versity, has collected the following fig ures: Kansas City, Kansas, the most miles of street paving, its total mileage beinsr 23.43 miles: Topeka comes next with 20.07 miles; Leavenworth next with 13.00 miles; then Arkansas City, 8.50; Atchison, 8.30 miles; Fort Scott, 5.00 miles; Wichita, 3.70 miles; Lawrence, 2.25 miles; Emporia, 1.50 miles; Par sons, 1.33; Ottawa, 1.06; Pittsburg and Olathe with one mile each. From La Cygne: Mrs. Dora Crisler, aged about 30 years, wife of J". H. Cris ler, was accidentally shot and instantly killed near this city. With her husband and children she was in a wagon return ing to their farm from a visit. A rifle, resting muzzle upward on the front seat, was suddenly discharged, it is believed by being touched in some manner by the children sitting on that seat. Mrs. Crisler was on the back seat. When shot she exclaimed "I am dead," and expired instantly. She leaves four children. Prof. L. V. Kellogg, Chancellor Snow's private secretary, and a graduate of Kansas university, has resigned and will go to the Leland Stanford, jr., universi ty. Fred B. McKinnon, of Arkansas City, Kan., assistant librarian at the university during the last two years, succeeds him. The assistant professor ship in entomology will be taken by William Snow, son of Chancellor Snow. He is a graduate of the Kansas state in stitution, and has been studying his specialty during the last year at the Illinois state university. Atwood special: A water spout poured out on the southeast part of Rawlins county. , The water was two feet deep on the level prairie. Mrs. H. D. Aldridge was crossing a draw when the water came down fifteen feet deep, with such force as to break the carriage all to pieces. The carriage was found two miles below the crossing. The people in search passed through seven barbed wire fences, finding pieces of Mrs. Ald ridge's clothing in the wire. After twelve hours' diving the body was found lodged between two trees fifteen feet under water. All the wagon and rail road bridges on the creek for several miles below were washed out. Miss Celeste Nellis, a Kansas young lady, is making a name for herself at the "World's fair. She entered in com petition for the medal offered hy the music department and passed a highly creditable examination in piano playing before the Illinois state music commis sion. Good performers from every sec tion of the country were entered for the medal, and though she was the youngest performer competing she was ranked by the examiners as one of the best players and was awarded a medal. On Thurs day last she was given a place on the programme at the concert in Assembly hall in the Woman's building, and played admirably before a large audi ence. Miss Nellis is the daughter of Judge D. C. Nellis of the Kansas Farmer. Ex-County Commissioner George Ho vey, of White Church, Wyandotte coun ty, has made some discoveries out near his residence that he thinks will be of great importance. He recently found a part of the remains of a mastodon theret and now he claims to have discovered the remains of a prehistoric city near his residence, and with only a very little trouble and search has found a lot of pottery and other rude utensils that he thinks will go far towards establishing the correctness of his claims. Last week he secured a specimen that he prizes very highly, and which he will send to the Smithsonian institution for examina tion. He said it was the head of an idol presumably. It was cut out of a peculiar stone not native to this country, and was a remarkably well finished and proportioned head. It was quite small, being only about the size of a doll's head. The stonS was quite well polished and the head neatly finished. The pot tery he has consists of a dozen different vessels, all very hard and flinty and un glazed. He also has a large collection of Indian arrows and other relics, the country out around White Church being especially rich in such specimens. At Fort Scott great preparations are being made for the reunion of the Sixth Kansas cavalry and the Second Kansas battery, to be held there on August 24, 25 and 26. Comrade D. W. Graves and his glee club from Missouri will be pres ent to furnish the music for the occa--sion. Saturday,, the last day of the re union, is to be a. -general reunion day, and everyone is cordially invited to be present. Several hundred visiting com rades are expected there at the reunion, and the occasion is looked forward to with much interest. The Western muversity, the colored peo ple's educational institution north of Kan sas City, Kansas, near Quindaro, will open in October. The board of trustees, "who have been at work for several months attempting to get the institution ready for opening, now announce that one wing of the building will be put in order at once, so that at least 100 pupils can be accommodated during the coming fall and winter. The Western universi ty is under the jurisdiction of the Afri can Methodist Episcopal church, and when completed it will be one of the leading schools for the education of col ored young men and women in the coun try, being national in its scope. m KANSAS CHUKCK.ES. Eev. Byers and Bev. L. P. Broad ded icated the Congregational church in Powhattan. The Catholics are building a monster church four miles from Seneca. It is 160 by 60 feet with 46 foot ceilings. Allen, Lyon county, has a new Meth odist church which was recently dedi cated. There was a debt of $750 to be paid and $1,000 was raised in a few minutes. KANSAS RAU.KOAD8. The Santa Fe is building a $2,000 de pot at Kingman. About $15,000 per month is paid by the Santa Fe road to its employes at Wellington. Dispatches announce the death on the Pacific coast of AV. S. Mellin, of the Northern Pacific railroad. Mr. Mellin lived in Topeka for many years and was well known in Kansas railway circles. The Santa Fe reports fast time on a car load of pears for Chicago and a car load of vegetables for Kansas City, which left Hitchcock, Texas, at 2 a. m. July 8. The Kansas City car made the run in sixty two hours and the Chicago car was just 100 hours in transit. Topeka Capital: The Bock Island was notified of a good rain at Liberal Friday night and Saturday morning. The officers claim that this assures the broom corn crop of that section. There were 800 acres of broom corn near Lib eral, and it should bring $37 an acre. A. W. Stillwell, traveling freight agent of the Santa Fe, is traveling through western Kansas to find out how much seed wheat the people out there want tins lall. ne company is going to do its part in furnishing it, although the manner of diatribution has not yet been decided upon. Tho Union Pacific company has adopt ed a novel plan for keeping down the weeds in its railroad yards in Kansas. The company gets all the salt wanted, for the hauling, at the Kanopolis salt works, and it is shipped along the road and scattered in the railway yards. Weeds wither, die, dry up and blow away. The salt is a refuse article that accumulates as slack does at a coal mine. The article is mined in large quantities at Kanopolis. STOCK AND FARM. Wilson county is having large cropa of peaches and apples. The boss yield of wheat reported from Kansas this year, is that produced by a Sumner county farmer on the Nine scah, which averaged forty-eight bush els to the acre. It is estimated that Sumner county will have 3,000,000 bushels of wheat from this year's crop, while there yet re mains in the county 1,000,000 bushels from former crops. A Lamed special says: Eobert Por ter, one , of the most prominent Odd Fellows of this part of Kansas, dropped off his horse while riding through Broad way and died before anyone could reach him. S. Stern, of Gardner, raised 35 acres of English blue grass this season, which averaged 11 bushels of seed to the acre. He could have sold the seed at 10 cents per pound or for $2.32 per bushel, a total of $970.20. Bussell Becord: A new species of fly is reported which is far more trouble some and injurious to cattle than the old fashioned kind. Dr. Hays says they make the cattle run for the river as if Beelzebub the god of flies was after them, and Will Goer thinks they injure the cattle's eyes. Topeka Journal: A fanner in the southern part of the county reports that he has discovered something the equal to Prof. Snow's fungus for killing chinch bugs. The bugs worked in his corn un til the stalks began to fall. Then myr iads of bright green flies with black heads and light, gauzy wings appeared. They settled down on the chinch bugs, and in three days they were gone. Kansas City, Mo., Journal: The re cent rains have assured a good corn crop throughout the Missouri valley and good late pasture. The result has been a marked improvement in stockers and feeders the past few days at the Kansas City, Kans., stock yards. The demand for good style, native feeders is ahead of the supply, with prospect of still greater improvement as the summer wears away. Corn is declining every day, and its growing cheapness will make farmers more anxious than ever to feed it. At Beloit L. D. Wilcox exhibited two stalks of corn grown on new ground, ten feet four inches high. Each bore two fine ears and the fifty acre piece will average fifty bushels per acre. Plainville Times: We were again giv en our weekly installment of moisture; in fact more than the regulation amount. It rained nearly all night, and was suf ficient to thoroughly soak the ground. Corn had begun to need rain, but it is now in fine condition. The prospects for a good crop could hardly be im- j proved. 3? - 'V B&&mmJPwwKmiSP ' biscuit and bread, "Si g lHm A ?

A woman has nothing but her age to defend her. And she does her best to keep that age as young as possible, because she knows that the fewer years it carries in the eyes ol others the greater its power to charm, the surer its strength to win her victories in the big battle of life. She has an arcanum for it iust as she has for the wad of false hair that she wears in a bogus Psyche knot at the -back of her neck and for the little paint-tubeioat of which she squeezes the cheeriness of her lips. The man who tears away the veil from this sanctum sanctorum of innocent and harmless white lies deserves a hereafter of hornswoggliug in which a perpetual procession of houris- trample over his trembling heart and Cupid ever hovers near with his thumb to his nose and his fingers spread out, mocking at and making merry with him. In a recent breach of promise case the brother of the defendant, in a cruel, desecative way, went to work and revealed the alleged real age of nou one woman, but of six. The fair plaintiff says she is 27. The age unmaskersays he has records which prove that she is 34, and these same records boost the ages of plan tifFs five sisters across the same seven years of time. Isn't it awful? How hard-hearted a man must be to pub licly declare that a woman is seven years older than she says she is? Where is our boasted modern chiv alry? What has become of the world's supply of Chesterfleldism? And how about the thing we used to call gal lantry? Evidently they are not a drug in the market just now. From this time out a woman whose age has holes in it doesn't want to court the the glare of the public eye very much, breach-of-promisely or otherwise. New York World. Engaged Conples In France. After a girl has passed her eigh teenth birthday she is thought to be une demoiselle a marier, but it is considered bad taste for the parents themselves to make any effort to achieve a daughter's marriage. Young men, excepting in the country, where far greater liberty is allowed, are seldom asked to visit a family where there are grown-up daughters, and, under rare circumstances, are never asked to come to lunch or dinner. On no account would a French mother allow her daughter to speak to a man of known bad char acter or obviously unfit to oecome her husband. Marriage is an ever present .possi bility in France where young people are concerned, and as may be easily imagined, this has both its advantages and disadvantages. None of these rules apply to near relations. Abroad families sec a great deal of one an other and cousins hardly ever develop into husbands, probably because they are allowed to see so much of their f younger cousins. mam Judgtf (to young woman charged with shoplifting): Where do you live, young woman; in the North End of Back Bay?

"I had a terrible time on my beat last night," said one 'Chicago policeman to another. "Footpads?" "Yes. Two of them trying to rob each other." Almost any employe can tell you that some one is liable to get ffred when the boss gets hot. m Nature Demands a Tonic. We ought never to forget, even those of us who possess vigorous health, that we are wearing out that the vital clock work, so to speak, must eventually run down. This, of course, we cannot prevent, because it is in the ordinary course of nature, hut we may retard the too speedy arrival of decay by the use of an invigorant which takes rank of ev ery other, namely Hostetter's Stomach Bit ters. This century has not witnessed a par allel in' success to this famous medicine, which not only sustains health by promoting vigor, but overcomes constipation, dyspep sia, chills and fever, nervousness, rheuma tism and other disordered conditions of the system fostered by weakness and an impov erished aondition of the blood. Thefeeble, persons convalescing after exhausting dis ease, and the aged, derive infinite benefit from the use of this helpful and efficient tonic. A Call to Arms: "Come, John, and take the baby."
