A GOOD THING FOR HIM.
Oae Boy Thanks Judge Chesney For
Sending; Him to Reform School.
A young man wearing good clothes
and who spoke with a pronounced Ger
man accent, went into Justice Chesney's
office yesterday afternoon and introduced
himself to the justice as Otto Schlager.
"I see you don't recognize me," the
young man sa'.d.
"Your face is familiar," replied the
judge, "but I can't place you."
'Vell, you sent me to the Reform
school five years ago, and I want to thank
you for it," continued Schlager. "It was
the best thing evr happened to me. It's
too bad it don't help all the boys as much
as it did me."
The young man went on to explain
that he got to running around with a bad
class of boys in Topeka, and one summer
during fair week he got drunk and hit
au Indian with a brick, and came near
sending poor Lo to the happy hunting
ground. For "this offense Justice Ches
ney ordered him kept in the Reform
school until he should become 21 year3
of age. His term expired two years ago.
He learned music at the school, played
in the Reform school band, and now he
is enlisted in the regular army at Ft.

nothing about it. I am satisfied that
there is nothing whatever in the report.
If they do strike it will be because of
sympathy with the Pennsylvania miners.
"We have no trouble as long as the
agitator keeps away, but we have him
just now. He comes from Ohio and
Pennsylvania, but I think this time his
efforts will prove futile. Our mm are
making from $2.50 to $5 a day now, and
they can't afford to strike. 1 do not an
ticipate any trouble, and no demands
have been made by the men."

Items or Interest from tha North Side or
the ctiver.
Mrs. G. W. Lowman of Oskaloosa is
visiting the family of Councilman J. D.
Pattison.
Dave Elder is hunting for the reporter
who said he was married yesterday. It
is not true.
Evangelist J. A. L. Romig will preach
at 1010 North Kansas avenue this even
ing at 8 o'clock.
The flower thieves have begun their
operations early this year. Mrs. John
Lapp, at 821 Harrison, put out her flow
ers yesterday, and this morning they
were all gone.
The funeral of little Myrtle Thomp
son, who died yesterday as the result of
burns received at Sunday night's fire,
occurred at 2 o'clock today. The inter
ment was made at Rochester cemetery.
The recovery of the baby is considered
doubtful, as its face is very badly burned.
So many societies exist in North To
peka, and public entertainments in their
interest are so frequent, that it is often
difficult to arrange the dates so as to
avoid conflict, from the fact that there is
but one place suitable for such affairs.
On account of this condition of affairs a
movement has been started looking to
the erection of a hall with stage and
scenery. The various fraternal societies
are trying to get together on the matter,
aud if they succeed, it will probably be
built before fall.
The electric lights furnished by the
city on this side are not operated in a
manner wholly satisfactory to the people.
They understand that the city is furnish
ing more lights than it has power for,
but they think the light should be turned
on at dark and cut off in the latter part
of the night if necessary. Since the
leaves are on the trees it is absolutely
dangerous to be on many of the streets
in the early part of the evening.
A full house greeted the performers
in the spectacular drama ' "The King's
Daughter" which was presented at Luk
ens' opera house last night for the benefit
of the Church of the Good Shepherd.
The audience was pleased and applauded
liberally. There was no comedy in the
piece but there was the usual amount in
the performance and. the audience
laughed uproariously when the curtain
was dropped on the back of a "Lord
Chamberlain." The costumes were rich
in color and the grand march was well
executed and witn pleasing effect. The
Delsarte drill was a novelty and was well
received. ' The singing of Mrs. George
Currier, Miss Edna Parkhurst and Miss
Annie Campbell was a notable feature.
Miss Stella Wallace's solo, "Entreat Me
Not to Leave Thee" was especially fine
as was also a piano duet by Miss Mirta
Carter and Miss Grace Collins. Miis
Laura Blackwell, to whose excellent
training the success of the entertainment
is wholly due, is a graduate of the Chi
cago dramatic school and gave jmaav
evidences of careful study and artistic
attainment. Her poses in portrayal of a
wide range of human emotions were
excellently done and were greeted with
marked approval. Her elocution is also
good. Her musical and dramatic ability
was shown to the best advantage in her
role of "Vashti" when she entreats the
king to restore her to her place on his
throne. The piece will be repeated to
night and is deserving of a good audi
ence. When you need lumber give E. P.
Ewarc, the new dealer a call, 1012 Kan
