Superintendent of Insurance Snider, through Attorney General Little and W. O. "Webb, has filed a case in the Shawnee county district court against the New York Insurance com panies. The suit is to enforce tbe reciprocal tax of 8-10 of 1 per cent on all 2Tew York policies written in Kansas. -The state and the insurance companies have agreed to submit the controversy to Judge Hazen on an agreed statement of facts. The tax -would amount to about $48, 000. It was collected from 1881 to 1886, when Superiritendentof Insurance Morris held that the law was not effect ive from the fact that the New York law had been repealed by the legislature of that state. Superintendent Snider holds that the law has never been repealed and that the companies are still liable. A reciprocal insurance tax is a tax to correspond with tho insurance tax in the state in which the companies have their headquarters, and as New York had an 8-10 per cent, tax, Kansas was allowed to enforce the same tax against New York companies. The executive committee of the Kan. sas State Temperance union at its re cent meeting unanimously resolved that the proper officers oE the union issue a call requesting all the ministers in Kan sas to hold temperance meetings in their respective churches on the last Sabbath evening of this month pril 29th, and that appropriate union ser vices be held Tuesday evening, May 1, that being the thirteenth anniversary of the taking effect of the prohibitory law. Attorney General John T. Little ha3 given an opinion in the Kansas City, Kansas, bond election case. The city voted $100,000 school bonds at a recent election, and more than 1,000 votes weie cast for tho bonds than were cast against them. It appears, however, that there was not a majority of the qualified elec tors, and Attorney General Little holds that tho bonds cannot be legally issued, as tho law providos that a majority of tho qualified electors must vote for tho bonds. No member of the A. O. TJ. TV. will be permitted to hold office in the order if he rents a building for a joint or a sa loon in Kansas. This decision has been handed down by Ed W. Wheeler, of Col ony, grand master workman of the state lodge. This question was referred to him and this is what he says. "A joint or a saloon, in Kansas, implies a place where intoxicating liquors are sold in violation of law. It is unlawful to rent s building to another in which to keep a place for tho illegal salo of intoxicat ing liquors. It is the violation of the laws of our order to keep a joint or saloon. To rent a building for a joint or a sckron is conduct unbecoming an Dihcer for which he may be removed om office. He can be disciplined to Jie extent of expulsion from the order. A fire 6tarted in the east wing of the state house. It originated in a closet under the stairway- urthe west end of tho wing, which had been used for storing away rags and old papers. By prompt action the fire was put out without serious damage. The closet is a place whore cast off articles are thrown. Some of the state house attaches hold that the blaze was occa sioned by spontaneous combustion, while others think that a lighted match must have T)een thrown into the place by some one. "When John Falls, of the state library, first discovered that some thing was wrong the smoke was coming out uf every crevice and when the door was opened tho air fanned the blazo and it looked quite serious. It is foitunate that the fire did not start in the night. The state auditor's bookkeeper, "W. G. Hubbard, is having trouble with the books. In the firBt ledger everused in the office, opened in 1866, known a3 ledger "A," the accounts are closed, but he b'ays he cannot find a transfer of the balances. Ledger "B" makes no show ing of the accounts having been trans ferred. All the accounts are with coun ties, and the settlements were for sales of school lands. According to ledger "A," closed in 1882, the various counties are indebted to the state in the sum of $46,655.42. Tho counties against which the largest balance stands are "Washing ton, and the amount (is $7,190.80; Mar shall, $7,728.04; McPherson, $1,372.39. Tho book-keeper thinks that a settle ment was made, but does not understand why tho amounts were not entered on the ledger. Secretary Adams, of the state histor ical society, has received a copy of the History of the Centennial of the Inau guration of "Washington, held at New York City in April, 1889. It is the most costly book ever received by the society. It is bound in canvas, full gilt, and has over 200 fine engravings, besides more than that number of portraits.

The board of railroad assessors has adjourned until Mav 22, when they will listen to the tax commissioners in refer ence to lowering of the taxe3. It has been tho custom of tho'railroad assessors to travel over the roads in the Btate be fore the assessment is made. The board is composed of Lieutenant Governor Daniels, Attorney General Little, Secre tary of State Osborn, State Treasurer Biddlo and Stale Auditor Prather. Th9 board decided to abandon tho custom of traveling over the railroads of the state prior to making up their figures. Governor Lewelling issued a procla mation, offering a reward of $300 for tho arrest and conviction of the parties or person that murdered one Sarah B. Snyder.

JURA- A Iiittle Girl Suffers Terrible Agony for Years Phjsicians Said She "Would Die Cured at Last Her Mother Says it is a Miracle. - (From the Taunton, Mass., Gazette.) The following story needs no comment whatever. It is tho town talk in Wrentham, Mass., and tho child's mother tells it as fol lows : Mrs. Fuller said: ''My daughter is now eight years old. When she was four years old she had rheumatic fever, and at once she was stricken helpless; she went from bad to worse until we all despaired of ever seeing her about again. I employed at various times physicians ot Foxboro, Frank lin and Attleboro. br.e all to no practical benefit. I cave her all sorts of medicines, and this spring I buned over two bushels of empty bottles which she had emptied from time to time. One doctor who attend ed her said that she had liver complaint and dropsy, and that she was going to die. I had given up all hope myself when last March I happened to get hold of an Albany, N. Y., paper, and there I read of the wonderful cure of a man up that way by a medicine known as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, the patient hav ing been afflicted as my daughter was. At that time her legs were drawn up behind her, and her arms were almost helpless. Her head was drawn down on her shoulder and she was a pitiful sight, I tell you. I sent and got two boxes of Pink Pills, and when she had used them up I thought I could see just a" bit ot improvement. Then I got two more and she began to litt herself in bed, and to help herself in other ways. She kept on taking tho pills, and now she is able to go over to tho neighbors, and is bright and smart She was a living skeleton ; there was nothing to her but bones, and they were all out of shape. When she 'was first taken sick she was out of her head, and for three years, if you will believe me, it was an utter impossibility for me to catch more than five minutes' sleep at a time, so much care was she, and such constant attention did she require, and I was the only one she would let wait upon her. But I am glad I did so, and now I am getting my reward," and the fond, patient, faithful little woman glanced with pride and pleasure to the spot where the lit tle girl was playing with her sister in the shade, just outside the window. "I have spent more than $500 on her, and although I never begrudged it, yet I did want to see my child improve faster than she did. To-day she eats more at one meal than I do in two. When I commenced to give her the Pink Pills she was afflicted with a skin disease which was very annoying; Now that has all gone, and I think the pills are responsible for that. Before I started on the Pink Pills I wrote to a specialist in Buffalo, and described her symptoms : he said she had blood poisoning dpe to bad milk, and wanted me to rbring' her there for treatment, although he said that he didn't believe she would ever- get over it. She had been given up by four doc tors, who were certain that they could not cure her. Why, she couldn't open her mouth and I actually had to force the food into it. Her mouth was all sores, and, oh dear, what a looking child she was, and such a care 1 Nobody but myself knows what a trial we both have been through, for she was too young to realize it. If my statement will do anybody any good, I shall be glad to have it published, and if those who read it will only come to me, if they are skeptical, I can convince them in very little time that I know what I am talking about. People around here say it was a miracle, and I believe it was." The neighbors bore witness to the condi tion of the child previous to the use of Dr. wtll.owiat T3.l- TJillo nnl xxraro OTitTin?naf? in their Draises of the splendid work which had been accomplished by them in this case.

There is no such thing as catarrh of the head only, or catarrh of the stomach only, or catarrh of tho throat only, or ca tarrh of the bladder only, or catarrh of any other part or organ only. Catarrh is system atic first, last and all the time. Consump tion might as well be called a local disease because the lungs appear to be the parts most affected. Catarrh in any case is as systematic as consumption. The whole sys tem is contaminated with catarrh matter. Every drop of blood in tbe body i3 charged with the poison, which is picked up from tho stomach by the blood and carried around in (drculation alter dropping down from the lead. Under these circumstances itwou!d appear worse than nonsensical to expect to cure your catarrh by poking, squirting, snuffing or inhaling something or other up your nose. If you ever get cured of catarrh, it must be by an inward medicine that is competent to take all the poisonous catarrh matter down and out of the system from the inside, putting your whole system in the proper condition and purifying tho blood, so that you are not catching colds to produce catarrh or any other disease. What is the use of throwing your money away or losing your time, month after month or year after year, when you can get cured of tho moat aggra vated case of catarrh of any kind in one or two weeks by using the Red Cross Constitu tional, the only medicine known at the pres ent day that is competent to cure catarrh in this the proper and only way that it can be cured.

In the legendary lore of Canada ! the devil plays a prominent part. He does not appear as the strong angel, who lell through pride, the enemey of God, but as the mediaeval devil of monkish legend, the pretty persecutor of man. In the rural dis tricts of Canada, Satan Is supposed to be very active,says Llanche L. Mac donell in the popular Science Monthly. His company may be looked for on all occasions. The accidental appearance of a little child in the room often betrays the presence of the evil SDirit. as the poor innocent Is sure to bewail itself vigorously. The prince of darkness may be met at a ball, In the guise of a handsome young man who excets all the rustic gallaats in appearance. He wears erloves to conceal his claws, and disre gards the trammels of conventionality by keeping his hat on his "head to hide his horns. He selects the prettiestgirl in the room as his partner, but his choice is usually the village coquette, whose vanity or levity has exposed her to th3 evil influence. In the midst of the gaety a piercing cry is heard. A strong odor of brimstone becomes perceptible, and the at tractive cavalier is wafted out of the window, carrying with him some use ful domestic utensil, as for instance, a stove or a fryingpan. Thegirl may escape with a sharp scratch of a claw, particularly if she should happen te wear a cross or a crucifix. Canadian rustics never answer '-Entrez," when a knock is heard at the door; they in variable respond "Ouvrez." This is I founded upon an old legend of a young woman who replied "Entrez" to such a summons, when the devil came in and carried her off. A Practical Man Foreign Tourist: Tes, I have U3t come from Niagara Falls. You have been thero frequently, I presume?

The. subject ot. the above portrait is a prominent and much respected citizen, Mr. Robert Manson. of West Rye, N. H. "Where Mr. Manson is known "his word is as good as his bond." In a recent letter to Dr. Iv V. Fierce, Chief Consulting Physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buf falo, N. T., Mr. Manson says : "Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the best pills I ever took for th liver. All my friends say they do them the most good." This opinion Is shared by every one who once tries these tiny, little, sugar-coated pills, which are to be found in all medicine stores. The U. 8. Inspector of Immigration at Buf falo, K Y., writes of them as follows: "From early childhood I have suffered from a sluggish liver, with ajl the disorders accompanying such a condition. Doctors' prescriptions and patent medicines I have used in abundance ; they only afforded tem porary relief. I was recommended to try Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. I did so, tak ing two at night and one. after dinner every day for two weeks. I have reduced the dose to one 'Pellet' every day for two months. I have in six months increased in solid flesh twenty-tioo pounds. I am in better health than I have been since childhood. Drowsi ness and unpleasant feelings after meals have completely disappeared." Assist nature a little now and then with a gentle laxative, or, if need be, with a more searching and cleansing cathartic, thereby removing offending matter from the stom ach and bowels, and toning up and invigo rating the liver and quickening its tardy action, and you thereby remove the causa of a multitude of distressing diseases, such as headaches, indigestion, biliousness, skin diseases, boils, carbuncles,pfles, fevers and maladies too numerous to mention. If people would pay more attention to properly regulating the action of their bow els, they would have less frequent occasion to call for their doctors' services to subdue attacks of danjrerou3 diseases. i & & & Old Bachelor: Do you expect to marry, or do you prefer to keep your liberty, Misi Van Sand?

Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are unequaled, Is proven by the fact that once Vised, they are always in favor. Their sec ondary effect is to keep tho bowels open and regular, not to further constipate, as is the case with other pills. Hence, their great popularity with sufferers from habitual con stipation, piles, and indigestion. The " Pleasant Pellets " are far mors effec tive in arousing the liver to action than blu pills," calomel, or other mercurial prepara tions, and have the further merit of being purely vegetable asd perfectly harmless in any condition of tho system ; no particular care is required while using them. Composed of tho choicest, concentrated vegetable extracts, their cost is much mors iim is that of other pills found in the mar ket, yet from forty to forty-four "Pellets n are put up in each sealed glass vial, as sold through druggists, and can be had at the price of the more ordinary and cheaper made pills. Dr. Pierce prides himself on having been first to introduce a Little Liver Pill to the American people. Many have imitated them, but none have approached his " Pleasant Pei lets" in excellence. For all laxative and cathartic purposes the " Pleasant Pellets" are infinitely supe rior to all "mineral waters," sedlitz pow ders, "salts," castor oil, fruit syrups (so called), laxative " teas," and the many other purgative compounds sold in various forms. Put bd in class vials, sealed, therefore always fresh and reliable. One little "Pel- let "Is laxative, two gentry cathartic. As a dinner pill," to promote digestion, take one each day after dinner. To relieve distress from over-eating, nothing equals them. They are tiny, sugar-coated, anti bRious granules, scarcely larger than mus tard seeds. Every child wants them. Then, after they are taken, instead of dis turbing and shocking the system, they act in a mild, and natural way. There is no re action afterward. Their help lasts.

"Scores of people have put the sssm question to me, 'How Is it that nowa days in stables where horses are kept there is often a goat?" "You don't know why? Then I'll tell you. Although we are fullr in sured, the loss of our horses would seriously affect business; and as yon can never be sure, in a i l;ce )wber hundreds ot hands are employed, that some careless workman will not throw down a lighted match and let the place a blaze, it don't do to rest con tent justbecauseyour yearly premium Is paid. "What's that got to do with tho goat? I'm going to tell you. Horses are mortally afraid of fire; they won't face it on any account, but a goat will; and knowing this peculiar fret, many carful owners now keep one on the premises, assured that if a Are breaks out the goat will have a shot for safty, blaze or no blate, and, like a lot ot sheep, if the goat goes, the horses will follow.
