Charles Bigler, who lives near Hart ford, has recently lost six horses from a disease resembling glanders. Rem edies for gladers have failed to help and the animals have died one after the other. Veterinarians are unable to diagnose the disease and their pre ecriptions fail. Neighbors refuse to lend Bigler teams to haul the dead horses away, and he has burned the bodies. His last horse, however, has the disease. Bigler says the most peculiar feature of the sickness is that the horses eat heartily until their death. A span of mules in the same barn with the horses have not taken the disease. One other case of this disease in Lyon coucty has been re ported. Bigler made a report to the state livestock registry board and will ask the state veterinary to look after it. A Small Race War In Bansas.

An effort is. being made to get bet ter shipping regulations- for handling cattle exposed to the mange in the ter ritory in eastern Kansas where manga is not prevalent and there are no gen eral quarantine rules. J. R. Mercer, state live stock sanitary commissioner, has taken up the matter with the gov ernment and Dr. A. D.

Under the present regulations if one or two animals in a herd become in fected with mange the government considers all the herd is exposed and they are handled the same as quaran tine cattle and there is no good mar ket for them. The stockmen want this changed so that they can segregate the Infected cattle and ship the others into the open markets and clean cattle. The only restriction would be that If the cattle were sold to be shipped back to Kansas for feeding the cattle would have to be dipped before leaving the yards, while if the stock is butcher stuff there would be no quarantine rules and no dipping required.

One feels that it is just good to bo alive, and to be permitted to help others plan for happy times is certainly a delight and privilege much appre ciated by the editor of this depart ment. I am ask-2d to give again this lovely luncheon and put it in early so that all those who may entertain soon may have it. I quote entire: "A hostess who returned from a summer abroad gave this pretty af fair, the place cards bearing this ap propriate verse: Oh. Sweet September, thy first breezes bring Tho dry Ipaf'a rustle and the squirrel's laughter. The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring. And promise o exceeding Joy hereafter. "The cards wore decorated with a tracery in gold, studded with blue dots, supposed to be sapphires, the birth stone for this month. The ta ble was bare, with a wonderful set of blue doilies and centerpiece done by the Russian peasant women. Black eyed Susans, now in their prime, were the only flowers In evidence and they fairly made the rooms blaze with gor geous colorings "concentrated sun shine.' some one has aptly called them. "The piece de resistance was what the hostess called scrapple and was so delicious she had to give the recipe, which follows: One pound of round steak, one pound of fresh pork, put through the chopper, boiled until dons and enough water left to take up corn meal to the mush consistency. Mold In a pan over nisht. Slice thip- d'p In cornmeal and fry in hot lard or bacon grease. The platter was gar nished with parsley and deviled eggs.

A Motley Musical Party. A young hostess gave this very orig inal party, which was such a success that it has been the talk of the town ever since. She invited her guests to come, each bringing a musical instru ment and dressed in a costume to match. She wore a Grecian costume of pure white, with her hair in Psyche knot with gold bands and she carried a zither. The other young girl in the family dressed as a darkey with the gayest kind of a costume; she was accompanied by her best boy, who was a giddy young colored swain, and they carried a banjo and guitar. Then there was an Italian beggar girl with accord eon. a Spanish gypsy with her tambourine, a Scotch lad and lassie with bagpipes, a dear little Dutch couple in real wooden shoes with flutes, and three chums went as Ital ian street players with harp, violins, etc. The best of all was when a man with a hand organ and monkey ap peared. One of the men had hired him for the occasion. Of course he only stayed a few moments, but went away with the monkey's pockets filled with coppers and a good lunch In a basket. The Ices were served in shape of mu sical instruments and the favors were all candy boxes in the same shape, filled with delicious small bon-bons.

Boston. Tale university, one 6f our conservative institutions, has broken its precedents to confer upon Jane Addams the degree of master of arts. This not very robust little lady, says Current Literature, was fighting ear nestly a few years ago to be made garbage inspector of her ward in Chi cago. She used to rise at six in the morning in order to follow the garbage carts around from alley to alley and then to the dumps in order to see that the work was not skimped. A short time ago she took: her seat unostentatiously on the platformin CI ' 'iMfH J3i Miss Jane Addams. Woolsey hall with Theodore Roosevelt and Governor Hughes and J. Pierpont Morgan and James J. Hill, clad in an academic robe, to receive an honorary degree, while the classic walls re sounded to the applause of an appro ving multitude. Jane Addams, master of arts the very title shows how we are twisting the language in order to fit the old academic customs in which men alone figured to the new order of things in which women are recog nized as having other capacities than those of the sweetheart and the house wife. The idea of settlement work, which Jane Addams has done so much to ex pand and vivify and popularize, is a new and potent kind of melting pot. Its idea is to create a mutual under standing between different classes of the community and between different races. Hull house, which Miss Ad dams and Miss Starr started in Chica go more than twenty years ago, has been a pioneer to a new realm of ac tivity for thousands of men and wom en and a place where, as one writer puts it, Mrs. Flahrity of the Lake Shore drive and Mrs. Flaherty of Ewing street meet and find the human being in each other, to their own great surprise. For while Hull house does its work in one of the poorest districts of Chicago, it "has never ceased to be the rage among people of the "upper" class. "In the final estimate," writes Graham Taylor in the Review of Re views, "what she has done to re-attach to their rightful part and lot in the life of the community the classes isolated by the conditions of their la bor or their poverty may not prove to be a greater service than what she has done to help the financially and socially resourceful classes out of their detached class-life Into, the strug gle to make good their claim to a name and place among all their fellow men."
