Theodosius Botkin, the notorious judge formerly of southwestern Kansas, who has just taken the Keeley cure, has writ ten a letter of condolence to Jerry Simp son. Botkin and Jerry had a personal quarrel on the fair grounds at Wichita a year or two ago which almost ended in an affray. The following letters indicate that peace has beeu made between the two men: "Hon. Jerry Simpson. Washington, D. C: "Dear Sir: Whatever may have been the asperities between us in the past, I beg leave to assure you that I rejoice over the dispatch in this morning's paper which says your health has parsed the crisis and that you are convalescing. Please to accept this assurance in the u a iyi Gnirifc in whif)) it ia fi-fT.rn1 unii Vm- - , t .... - lieve me sincere in the hope that your health may soon be fully restored. "Sincerely and heartily, "Theo. Botkin." This letter received the following re ply: Hon. Theodore Botkin: kJiY Dear Sir: Mr. Simpson, who is too ill to guide a pen without great pain, instructs me to thank you for your manly and generous letter, received this morn ing. On his part he has no desire to per petuate hostilities that should never have been begun, and which probably never would have been commenced had each understood the other better. "And in making this frank statement on his part he further instructs me to say while the olive branch of peace ia so generously tendered, and accepted, that he makes no mental reservations as did the celebrated Rob Roy McGregor, who, when supposed to be on the bed of death was asked by the clergyman if he had forgiven everyone: " 'Yes,' " replied the doughty chieftain, " 'I forgive all my enemies except Sandy McDougall. " "Well," responded the" clergyman, "you must forgive Sandy as well as ev eryone else if you expect to receive the forgiveness of God in turn." "McGregor pondered over the proposi tion several minutes and finally ex claimed: "If I must forgive him, very well. If I die I promise to forgive him, but if I recover I'll break his back.' " "Air. Simpson says that while he is very weak and at times suffering great pain, he is slowly improving, and hopes to be able to resume his public duties in a few weeks. Thanking you again for your letter of sympathy and friendship, and hoping to hear from you again soon, he remains, "Vous truly, "Jerry Simpson." "L. D. Sale, Private Secretary." Don't Ielay.

US mm kJE1 ,3y?15 PvfylS1 IsiMrsj siMrJ Lsija IIAS FLITTED AWAY. Dr. Souder.HypnotistjTlieosophist and General Faki3t. SHE WAS A YICIOUS CREATURE. Sirs. Emma CThriatofferson Xells a Tale or Cruelty About Uer-Sadame Monder Arrested. Dr. O. Souder, clairvoyant, hypnotist, massage doctor and fortune teller, has left Topeka and a host of confiding women who are now, though poorer and sadder, somewhat wiser. For the past few weeks "Dr." Souder had rooms in the Keith block and sold to unsuspecting and too credulous persona the stories of their past and future for any sum the customer happened to have or could spare. She did a thriving busi ness and would doubtless have still been fattening her pocket-book at the expense of the trusting populace, had it not been for one bad break she made and its dis covery by Mrs. Emma Christofferson, who was in her employ for a short time. Dr. Souder was made much of during her stay here by a number of people. Among many others who came to madame'a parlors for advice and comfort one day was Mrs. Christoff erson, who had with her her little boy Arthur of 6 years. She came to seek the madame's aid in reuniting herself and husband, who have been separated for some time through no fault of hers. Yes, madame could do this .and, although the hus band's whereabouts were unknown, she could reunite them for the pitiful sum of $12 or would refund the money. Mrs. Christofferson was at that time working in the private family of Mrs. Wright on Norris street for $2 a week and paying the board of her little son at the resi dence of W. F. File at Eighth and Mor ris avenue. She had managed to save a little, however, and in the assurance that her husband would be returned to her she willingly paid madame the money and left. Madame, how ever, had fallen in love with little Arthur and decided to adopt him. After plead ings on the part of the doctor and tears on the part of the mother the transfer was legally made before Probate Judge Elliott and little Arthur became the adopted son of the clairvoyant. Oles fciouder promised that the child should be well educated. This was a month ago and soon stories came to the ears of Mrs. Christofferson that her little son was being mistreated and she resolved to find out, and if the reports were true to take her child away. Accordingly, during one of the madame's illnesses she be came her nurse and the tale of cruelty and temper and double life she discov ered will sound strange to the as yet dis illusioned admirers of the doctor's an gelic disposition. A Journal reporter saw the bov last ; evening and was shown a cruel burn on 5 his right hand. "She burned me," said . ho in answer to the reporter's questions; "with the curling iron because 1 coulda t spell the words." This was two weeks ago and the wound looks now as though it might have then been burned to the bone. "What else did she do?" "She whipped me on the sore hand with a slipper because I couldn't spell and because I cried, she was afraid somebody might hear and to make me stop threw me on the bed and smothered me with a pillow and choked me." The mother was crying by this time and told the reporter through her tears how the boy still bore great black and blue marks on his person from Mrs. Souder's whippings. In bathing him one time she got the water too warm and because he cried about it, she pushed him back into the water, although his skin was purple when he was taken out. All this and much more Mrs. Christof ferson discovered while she was pretend ing to be madame'a friend for the sake of recovering her husband, and on Mon day when madame announced to her that she had taken pay in promising to do a reat many things, she would not be able to and that her spirit friends had told her she had better leave the city that night, Mrs. Christof ferson resolved to apply the law. Dr. Souder was accordingly arrested by Con stable Ed Davis on a writ frona Justice Furry'a court, and on Tuesday was taken before the probate judge and the articles of adoption annulled, Mrs. Christofferson paying the costs and the madame set tling the $8 nurse bill the mother held against her. Nothing could profitably be done, however, about the $12 Mrs. Souder had taken to bring back the hus band. After the child was released the charges against Mrs. Souder were with drawn and she was allowed to go. Dr. Souder claims to be the sixth wife of Prof. Herbert L. Flint, the hypnotist, and is a rather small though well pro portioned blonde. When she left here she said she was going to Lawrence to treat a patient, and would be back in a few days. C. E.'S IN POLICE COURT. But Tiny are Triers as Visitors, Not as Victims. Three young ladies and four young men, wearing the sweet smiles aad white and pink badges that marked them un mistakably as delegates to the Christian Endeavor convention, were in the police court today. They were charged neither with being drunk nor disorderly, but were there merely as interested specta tors to see how justice (or rather the po lice department) works among the poor and unfortunates of the city. They chose a bad morning to attend, for there was only one case on the docket, that of Elias Jordan, a colored boy 12 years old, who was charged with hitting "Mrs. Car rie Johnson over the eye with a wash board. The prosecuting witnesses were not there, however, and the case was continued. There was not even a drunk or a suspect' to be sentenced for the edification of the Endeavorera. After the court waa over Jailer Ed Woodruff kindly showed the fair visit ors the interior details of the official city beanery. There were three hardened colored women in the "ladies" cell, who gave the visitors indifferent glances be tween their puffs at a corn-cob pipe. At the door of the men's apartment they at tracted more attention. "Say, Bud, who am dey?" asked one colored petty larcener of a "suspect." "Kaint you read them badges? They is a part of the Christmas Endeavoral." "Wots dat?" "Huh, yu don't know nufBn. Dey'a endeavorin' to git two Christmas3es, one in December an' anoder in June."

People A wedding, which has been one of the pleasant anticipations for weeks, was solemnized last evening, and society has added another name to her list of mat rons. - Miss Kate Knowles, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C O. Knowles, and Mr. Fred Cole, were united in marriage by Rev. Dr. McCabe at the home of the bride, on Harrison street, and only the relatives, and old friends, besides the Douze whist club, witnessed the cere mony. Aa the first bars of Mendelssohn's wed ding march, played by Miss Margaret Bear, were sounded, the bride and groom descended the stairs, preceded by the maid of honor and groomsman, Miss Lucy and Mr. George Knowles, brother and sister of the bride, who led the way to the back parlor. An arch of daisies and asparagus fern had been erected here, from which was suspended a solid bell of white daisies, and in the back ground waa arranged a pyramid of palms, ferns and daisies. Beneath this arch, on a white fur rug, the bride and groom stood facing the company, and as the hands of the clock pointed to half past eight, Dr. A'cCabe repeated the im pressive ring service. The bride, a tall, graceful blonde, looked very beautiful in a princess gown of pearl white brocaded satin, a ruffle of point d' esprit lace was caught at the throat with a diamond pin, cascaded down the front and fastened under the left arm. The folds of the skirt were slightly draped on the left side, and held in place with tiny rosettes. A wreath of white rosebuds held the tulle veil in place, and it hung to the hem of the demi-train. A plain high collar finished the neck of the gown, and the sleeves were very long. Her slippers were of white satin, her gloves of suede, and she carried a bouquet of white roses. Miss Lucy Knowles wore a dainty ruf fled frock of white Bwiss trimmed with Valenciennes lace. A sash of white I moire ribbon was tied in a bier bow in the back, and she carried a bunch of pink roses. Mr. Geo. Knowles wore the military dress uniform. Miss Margaret Bear, who presided at the piano, was attired in a gown of pale pink henrietta with lace and bebe rib bon, and Mrs. Knowles wa3 gowned in black silk with jet garniture and carried pink roses. In the hall everything was in white and green. Palms were banked before the piano and on a table lighted with a light shaded lamp, a -"Marriage book" bound in white and gold was at the dis posal of the guests. Wedding cake in white boxes on a white enameled table served as favors. Mrs. Tom Pounds presided here and wore a white silk gowu. In the dining room a small table was spread with embroidered linen and from the four corners long strauds of smilax were caught under the chandelier from which hung a basket of daisies. In the center of the table was a bowl of pink peonies, and bonbons in cut glass dishes were at each corner. The mantel was banked in pink and white roses. Light refreshments were served to the guests by Mioses Lillian and Ruth Thrapp, Blanch Bear and Lucy Knowles, all in light frocks. The pleasant circumstances attendant upon the wedding augur well for the future happiness of Mr. and Mrs. Cole, who went at once to their new home at 1330 Topeka avenue. The wedding gifts are exceedingly beautiful, and the array of cut glass, silver, linen, bric-a-brac, etc., were tokens from friends here and abroad. The bride is a graduate of the class of '90 of the Topeka high school; waa one of the most popular girls in her "social set," and has a large circle of friends in the church. Mr. Cole is a member of the firm of Wolf Bros. & Cole, and has known his bride from childhood. They will be at home after July 12th. Th Bethany Fetn. The rain yesterday afternoon effective ly prevented the Bethany Ivy party from being carried out as had been intended, and instead of having it on the lawn, the dining room and gymnasium of the col lege were given as much of a spring like appearance as clever fingera and a quantity of flowers, well could. The ceremonies begun at half past six, and the "Coronation of the Ivy Queen" took place in the dining room, where a throne had been erected for the occa sion, and the necessary touches given to make a royal spectacle. The young la dies of the college in white tarlatan dresses and carrying garlands of ivy over their heads, marched in to the mu sic of Watson's orchestra. Miss Aimee Crandall stepped forward, and delivered the prologue, and then a chorus was sung by the others, and after that the heralds, Masters Wallace Thompson and Ted Holliday, were sent to escort the queen to her throne. They wore court suits of white duck, with red sashes knotted around their waists. Miss Bessie Gibson sang the "Ivy Leaf1' during their absence, and as she finished, the maid of honor, Miss Gartrude Deve reaux, approached bearing the royal crown. She-wore a white tarlatan gown, with an ivy wreath on her hair. Miss Isabel Smith, in a similar costume, car ried the queen's scepter, and the queen attended by Misses Helen McCliutock, Lucile Mulvane, Mary Moore and Alice Rossington as train-bearers, approached the throne. She wore a robe of yellow silk with full court train of white tarla tan. Miss Edna Crane acted a3 maid of honor, and after the coronation by the archbishop, Miss Grace Shepherd recited. The girls formed in line and held their garlands for the queen to pass through on her way.to the gymnasium. where a May-pole dance was executed by twenty four young' ladies. Ice cream, confectionery and flowers were to be obtained from the various booths, and the Bethany Guild fund will be swelled by the proceeds. The Ladles' Moiic Club. The Ladies' Music club met Wednes day afternoon, and the programme com posed exclusively of operatic selections was fraught with the usual interest. The club will meet next time June 6, with Miss Irene Campdoras, at her coup try residence, and will spend the day ia picnic fashion. The selections on thia occasion will be rendered without the notes, and for this reason it ia called the "Memory Day."
