Itami of Interest About To pelt a People and Visitor la Town. A party of Mr. and Mrs. James Moore's friends being aware of the fact that yes terday was the tenth anniversary of their marriage, surprised them last evening, laden with gifts of tinware of all sorts: The host and hostess proved themselves equal to the occasion and entertained the company in a most delightful way.

After refreshments were served they danced until time to take their leave. Miss Margaret Harold gave a thimble party this alternoon, which was a little different from thimble parties in general. That is, each girl came prepared to dis cuss her particular fad, and submit it to the criticism of the others. The discus sions were so .lively at times that the needle work was quite forgotten until the enthusiasm had subsided somewhat. The affair was voted a decided success by the sixteen young ladies in attend ance.

Incendiaries are at' large in Topeka They have been carrying on their work for several weeks, but the burning of the barn, three valuable horses and three carriages belonging to O. P. Updeffraff at 715 Harrison street, last night was the latest example of their wickedness. W. A. S. Bird lives across the alley from the scene of the fire. When he went home last night at 11 o'clock he saw a group of men in the alley as he passed, but did not give the matter a second thought. When he got to his front steps he heard a door slam. Supposing the wind was swinging the door to his coal house he decided to go back and lock it, but. went first into the house and lighted the gas. Two minutes had not elapsed from the time he went into the hopse until he went out of the rear door; when he saw the whole south end of Mr. Updegraffs barn bursting into flames. Then dawned on Mr. Bird the sig nificance of the prowlers in the alley and the slamming door. Mr. Bird rush ed out of the house, sent a boy who was passing to turn in the alarm, and aroused all the neighbors, whose houses were in great danger of catching on fire. The wind was blowing at about 20 miles an hour, and the sparks and embers were being scattered broadcast. The lire department had just returned from an other fire, and there was some delay in getting streams of water into play. The barn was completely beyond saving when the firemen arrived, and their efforts were directed towards saving the adjoin ing property. Mr. Updegraffs house and that of Guilford Dudley in the same yard, caught afire, but were put out. Finally the walls of the barn caved in, and the mass of debris was saturated with water until the last spark was extinguished. Three of Mr. Updegraff's - horses were burned. The most valuable one 'was the three-year-old trotter, "Jerry Simpson," for whom his owner had refused $1,000. This horse made some excellent-records on the state fair track last falL "True Blue," another three-year-old was burned to de'ath, as was the family carriage horse that has been in service for many years and was the most be loved of all by Mr. Updegraff's children. Mr. Updegraff thinks there was no in surance on his property, but cannot tell until he has time to hunt up his insur ance policies. Chief Wilmarth says there is no doubt of the existence of a gang, probably tramps, who delight in fires such as that last night, and who are responsible also for the burning of the barn of Joab Mul vane. Dr. McCarter and many others re cently, lie describes their work as "sim ply villainous and diabolical." It seems probable that those incen diaries do not limit their operations to arson, but include in it burglary as well. Shortly before the fire, the house of M. P. Hillyer in the same block was the scene of their operations. Tiie members of the family were play ing cards in a rear room, and Miss May Hillyer, who had been at a neigh bor's, was returning home. On the front porch of her home she saw a man standing, but supposing it was some one to see her father, walked in the door which was standing open. Thereupon the man blew a shrill whistle and another man rushed out of the hailway. He said 'Good evening" as he brushed past Miss Hillyer, and the two men ran away to gether. It is thought that the Updegraff barn was set afire in order to attract the en tire attention of the neighborhood in that direction, in order that they might have a comparatively easy time plunder ing the houses in the vicinity. No such burglaries were reported to the police, however. The only robbery reported was the stealing of a set of harness from the barn of Mr. Poole in the western part of town. Chief Wilmarth says that while no re flection is intended towards those who have suffered from the incendiaries, burning of barns would be less common if the barns were securely locked. As is is, tramps are often invited by open doors to commit their depredations. He admonishes all citizens to lock their barn doors. Other 15am Fires. The fire at 10:25, prior to the big fire. was in the barn at the rear of the Topeka j club. "A pile of excelsior was burning. It may have been incendiary and may have been accidental. It was discovered in time to be extinguished without loss. At 3:30 yesterday the firemen were called to 1425 North Quinoy street, to put out a fire in the barn of A. A. Morth land. A horse and a set of harness were burned. The loss will be about $500, partially covered by insurance. PRESIDENT OF SOROSIS. The Head of the Great New York Club to He Entertained Here. The Western Sorosis club will con tinue the discussion of Mrs. W. C. Camp bell's paper, "A Woman in Business," this afternoon. The club has extended an invitation to Dr. and Mrs. Tilmarth of New York, to stop on their way to Denver in May, and Mrs. Tilmarth, who is president of the New York Sorosis club, will deliver an address. BATTLE WITH OUTLAWS. One Killed and Three Captnred Near Fawhuka, Indian Territory. Arkansas City, Kan., April 3. Chief of Police Robecker and nine deputies of Pawhuska left there Sunday night in search of the gang of outlaws who were twenty miles south of there. Yesterday they had a battle which resulted in the killing of one of the outlaws and the capture of three others. The deputies returned yesterday with the dead outlaw and prisoners who'are recognized as the "Crook gang." They have been operating south and southeast of Pawhuska for some time, peddling whisky and stealing horses and other property. How to Improve the Complexion.
