Editor Bristow doesn't seem to have followed along that irrigation ditch for nothing after all. When Superintendent Gaines made hU purity speech he ha I no idea he was going to be found out. The announcement that Boston is the lowest city in morality is likely to make New York green with envy. Now that the assembly has opened Ottawa people will be able for a time to take their minds utl the new court house. Dr. Pahkuukst is reported to have said "Hang woman suSrage." Dr. Park hurst is in England, a good safe dis tance. If the issue is made clear on the Hatch anti-option bill that it is to prevent gambling, there is no hope for it in the senate. If Chinamen at Canton keep dying at the rate of 200 a day there won't be a-.y need of restriction on immigration to the United States. Jt doe Thomas distributed the San ders army according to territory almost as carefully as if he had been making up a political ticket. One of the best uses that Col. Veale could put his ability to to get things for the city from the legislature would be to have the state house yard cleaned up. It is a good thing that Superintendent Gaines' polite conversations don't have to be printed often, or it would bank rupt an ordinary printing office to buy dashes. Secretary of State Osborji may now look over at Superintendent Gaines and congratulate himself that there is another state officer that has a worse mouth than his. Mb. Hiix of New York, will have to join the Populists soon or flock by him self. His amendment to the tariff bill, placing coal on the free list, received but seven aye votes. Thi trustees of Baker university have prohibited intercollegeate football games at that institution and are as proud of it aa if they had reaffirmed their faith la the Noachian deluge. Thi faction in the Republican state central committee that wants the speakers to explain the platform as endorsing prohibition must think that the cam paigners will be regular Socrateses. Ibreguxaritizs, the latest term ap plied to the Carnegie steel plate fraud, is strictly a Democratic term. The steal ing of elections in the south and New York were never considered by them more than slight Irregularities. Gladstone thinks the men who In vited him to visit America knew he couldn't come and meant the invitation only as a compliment. Mr. Gladstone has a very generous mind, usually invi tations of that kind are not so considered Boss Crokkr went to Europe before the Lexow committee which is investi gating the rottenness of Tammany's government of New York got a chance at him. Mr. Croker may net be any better than United States senators but he is a great deal smarter. Judge Albiox Tourqkk has refused to run on the Republican ticket in New 'York because the party Is drifting away Jrom its old principles, "free speech, free soil, free men.0 Judge Tourgee is .pld fashioned enough to expect political parties to have principles. The gold of the country ia taking its regular summer vacation In Europe. Nearly every outgoing vessel takes a million or so. It will return in the fall, Jt Is hoped, much Improved by Its outing And be ready to go to work. The people jio not seem well pleased, however, with these aristocratic habits, and would much prefer a money that would stay at home all the time. PLUMB'S INTIMATES FlilEXIX ' Borne weeks ago It was announced that. Mrs. P, B. Plumb had brought suit against Major C Ueo4 to adjust alleged differences In partnership matters that had existed between the late senator and the major. The news came as a great surprise. The friends of Senator Plumb could not understand how anything but the most cordial feeling could exist on the part of the surviving members of the family toward Major Hood. The friend ship between, these two men in many re speets was closer than a brotherly one. They trusted each other Implicitly. They had been associated for long years in business. The summer be fore the senator's death the two men made an extended trip together in Colorado and it is known that both en joyed It like old chums. Such a social visit they had oot had together for some years on account of the senator's congres sional duties. Both spoke enthusiasti cally of the occasion to their friends. Cordial relations always existed and no differences came between them that were not easily adjusted. A suit at law on the part ef the Plumb estate against the most intimate friend of the senator, could only be explained by misinforma tion on the part of the plaintiff. An item from Emporia today recites that Mrs. Plumb has dismissed the case ou these very grounds. Both parties are to be sincerely congratulated. The integrity and honor of Major Hood have never been questioned. No one can do busi ness with him without esteeming him and being Impressed with bis sincerity, his business genius and bis warm hearted nature. He helped Plumb just as he helps scores of people whom he believes worthy and in need of help. He does these things because he can, because he likes to and all quietly and without osten tation. Intimate friends know how many questions of public policy Senator Plumb deferrrel to the conscientious, conservative and careful judgment of Maj. Hood. Indeed again and again did Senator Plumb, in his public duties. follow a course largely marked out by Maj. Hood. In Plumb's remarkable success at Washington and in his his tory, which is now read with such ad miration on the part of his old friends, Mujor Hood was an important factor. Could Plumb speak today he would un doubtedly urge his old friend for his seat in the senate. The restoration of a friendly feeliDg between the families, as instanced by the dismissal of the suit, is one that will be most happily received. STAND UP FUR KANSAS. In his speech at Kansas City, Kansas, opening the campaign, Major E. N. Mor rill used the following language: "When I go east I don't like to say I am from Kansas. 1 ued to bo proud of it. but since the Populists have gained control I am just a little ashamed of my state. When strangers ask me where I am from I avoid the question aul say I am from the west." Now, we really must protest against such talk as that, Maj. Morrill. While the Populists are responsible for mauy disgraceful acts and officials, the case is not so serious that we should be ashamed of our state. We may be ashamed of the Populists, but never ashamed of Kansas. No Kansas man should hang his head at the name of Kansas; that most glorious state in the union. Is Kansas so much worse off than other states, that her citizens should feel as hamed of her, especially one who aspires to the highest position in the gift of the people? A few friends of the whisky traffic have said they were ashamed of the state ever since the passage of the prohibitory law, but they were few and were mostly Dem ocrats. We don't believe the masses of the Republicans of Kansas will approve of this, the major's sentiment. Even if there were good reasons for feeling that way about it they have always stood up for Kansas and kept her short comings to themselves. When the words of Major Morrill are read in the cold and unsym pathetic columns of the eastern press, many citizens who love Kansas with all her faults, . will wish that he had not said them. The next thing wa know some Popu list paper will be calling Major Morrill a "calamity howler." The great Empire state of New York is in a much worse condition than Kansas, morally, politi cally and financially. Her per capita debt is much greater, her moral condi tion Is a stench in the nostrils of good citizens and her political condition under Democratic rule is something horrible and yet who has ever seen a New Yorker that was not proud to say: UI am from York state." "Stand up for Kansas "was good enough as a Republican campaign slogan two years ago, and it is good enough stilL Say all you want to about the Populists but "Stand up for Kan sas." BURNED OUT. Eakla(las Hotsl Oconplad by Csnfrait men Destroyed by Fir a. Wabhisotoh, June 20.- The congres sional and other guests of the Eckington hotel in the suburbs of this city were roused from their slumbers about mid night by the cry of fire and had to make a hasty exit to escape from the flames. The fire started in the kitchen and within two hours the building was prac tically a total loss. The hotel was built on the colonia style, the wings being modern structures, while the main build ing was formerly the Gale mansion, the country seat of one of the proprietors of the old National Intelligencer. The hotel which was owned by Dis trict Commissioner Truesdell was valued at 50,000 and was wall Insured. The lessee, W. A. McKillip, loses about $13, 000 on furniture. Among the guests were Representatives Dunn, ot New Jer sey; Funk, of Illinois; McCleary, Min nesota; Outhwaite, of Ohio, and Wright of Nebraska, with their families.

If the American people are no, already a knowing lot, they have determined to remedy the defect just as boor as ever they may. It doesn't matter at all now adays if your mental training was neg lected when you were of school age. Just as soon as you are able, by devo tion to some sort of money getting oc cupation, to devote a few weeks and a few dollars to the operation, you can go away somewhere in the summer, by the side of lake or sea, in the mountains or under the shade of the forest, "take up" GFOBGE E. VINCENT. Assistant chancellor Chautauqua system. whatever subject you desire and study it, under really competent direction, to your heart's desire. It is all really very wonderful, and it grows more so every year, for each season the number and efficiency of summer schools are in creased. It seemed l.t year as if the limit was about reached, but this summer, notwithstanding the fact that times have been hard and money tight, the number of schools is larger than ever, their schedules of study broader, and the at tendance, it is expected, will be more numerous Vy thousands. Let us look into this matter a little, Chautauqua comes in for the first no tice, of course, for although the claim that its summer school bears the par ental relation to all the other schools is scouted iu certain quarters Chautau qua is the best known of all, and more persons go there in search of knowledge every summer than apywhere else. Well, the Chautauqua programme for the coming summer is positively be wildering. The American Institute of Christian Sociology, formed last year, will, after a session at Grinnell, la., lasting from June 27 to July 4, begin sessions at Chautanqna on July 6, con tinuing for 20 days. Professor Richard T. Ely, the president of th institute; Professor J. R. Commons, secretary, and Professor George D. Herron, organ izer, assisted by Rev. B. Fay Mills, President George A. Gates, Rev. John P. Coyle, Professor Jesse Maey, Dr. William Howe Tolman of New York, Ballington Booth and others, will in struct those who attend. The American Institute of Christian Philosophy will begin its summer school at Chautauqua July 5 and continue one week. Some of the topics to be considered by the In stitute of Christian Sociology will be political economy, taxation and propor tional representation. The Institute of Christian Philosophy will consider such topics as the incarnation, the reunion of Christendom and the like. The presi dent of the latter organization is Dr. AmoryH, Bradford of MontclaJr, N. J., and the institute's instructors this year will include Dr. George Dana Board man, Chancellor McCracken, Dr. M, D. Hoge and others of like caliber. The Ministerial club will also meet at Chau tauqua during the first half of July un der the direction of Bishop "Vincent, the founder of Chautauqua, and he will have the help of Dr. J. M. Buckley, President Harper, Bishop Hurst and others well known for their ability and earnestness. Theodore Roosevelt will E. BENJAMtR ANDREWS. President Brown university and interested In the "extenaism" course. also speak there daring July on "The Westward Progress of Civilization In the United States," Professor Rich ard . G. Moulton on literary topics, II. S. Benton on Hawaii, Carroll D. Wright on industrial problems, and so on. The college proper, under President Harper, will begin its sessions with its multitudinous classes on July 5, dosing Aug. 6, and the teachers' retreat, Wal ter L. Hervey, president of the New York Teachers college, in charge, will tlso be held during July. All the regu lar classes will be continued. Beside, the usual number of pretty young worn -In and comely, wholesome older ones will attend t the Chautauqua assembly fa 'tffl this year as formerly, and there will ba the usual physical culture classes. The American Society For the Exten sion of University Teaching will give remarkably varied courses of instruction Jn the buildings of the University of Pennsylvania beginning July 2 and elating July 88. The faculty of this summer school will be drawn from leading colleges both east and west, and (his will impart truly national charac teristics to the gatherings. Preliminary o the opening of the summer school proper Richard Watson Gilder, on the evening of June 38, will speak on "Lin coln aa a Literary Man, " The topics to be considered during the sessions that begin July 3 will be: 1. Literature, Science and Art. 2. Pedagogy. 3. Mathematics. 4. Music. 6. History and Civics, e. .Economics and Sociology.

Giddings and many others, the work of each to be devoted to a specialty in which he is peculiarly well versed. It does not need any words of commenda tion from me to impress upon the reader the fact that the managers of the uni versity extension course have got to gether an excellent summer faculty and laid out a most alluring programme. The Catholic Summer School of America, which was so successful last year and the year fore, will be repeat ed this year at Plattsburg, on Lake Champlain. The sessions will begin on July 14. Rev. Thomas McMillan, C. S. P., is chairman of the board of studies, and Bishop Spaulding, Richard Malcolm Johnston, George Parsons La throp, Hon. W. C. Robinson and Dr. James Hall will be prominent members of the faculty. The school will last four weeks, and during the last of the four there will be a course of 24 lectures for the especial benefit of teachers. .

Never attempt a thing with a young horse and fail. There is little choice between a bad stallion and a bad mare. A little extra rubbing before selling will put dollars in your pockets. Too much speed too early in the season often means none at all at the close. Too great anxiety for speed is the most frequent cause of "knocking out" the youngsters. Give the pacer a chance to show him self, and he will do the ttt without much outside aid. Whatever you undertake in teaching or subduing a young horse plan thor oughly and carry it out. Be kind, but firm, and from the first teach the pupil that submission is neces sary and will be enforce.!. Horses may not be aa intelligent as human beings, but they possess enough intelligence to know when they are, so to speak, on top. Intelligence never hurt ans'thing. It is an element tle supply of which i& sadly deficient in man, horses or cattle. As this is added to either, value in creases rapidly.

Turf, Field and Farm. RAILROAD TIES. President Green of the Texas Midland will extend his road to Greenville and Paris. Hetty Green, with her millions, is back of her son's road. Jack Newbold, the pioneer second baseman of the Pennsylvania Railroad baseball nine, intends to devote his spare time this summer to cricket. The new road projected between Chi cago and Cairo ia said to be independent of all other links between those points and backed by $9,000,000 of capital, of which every cent of the money is pledged. The Chicago and Alton offers $20 re ward to the passenger conductor who during 1894 takes up the largest num ber of time and annual passes which are used by persons to whom they do not be long. Some idiot or interested person is con stantly circulating the report that the Baltimore and Ohio is preparing to ex tend its lines to the Missouri. Nothing is more certain in the railroad world than that no eastern or western road will extend into the territory of the other. A decision has been handed down re cently in New York state by the supreme court which holds that a first class pas senger may ride free in a drawing room car if all the seats in a passenger coach are occupied. Tnis means that a rail way company must provide seats ror each passenger. False Report or Olpple Creek. ruippiir Oreik. Colo.. June 20.
