Governor Lkwelliso's title ought to be "His Accidency." Thehe id one crop thia dry weather U hard on; it'a the mosquitoes. Mies Pollard 'has as much right to go on the stage as Breckinridge has to go back to congress. Haiti's climate is wholly tropical, but we believe a trade of climate satisfactory to Kansas might be effected. Thehe ill be no cabbages to throw to the birds or at bad actors this fall. There's barely enousrh for cold slaw. If one could oLly hear the patter of the rain upon the r jof, it would remind one of his boyhood days when it used to rain. The business men of thi3 country de mand that the tariil be let alone, for ever; has Mr. McKinley been informed of this? It looks rather odd for Republican and Democratic pipers to be standing together in defense of ballot box stuffing in Alabama. We see by the dispatches that the sen ators have decided to disband and scat ter for a time, until public indignation has died down. Thehe are two Democratic newspa pers in Kansas that are criticizing Cleve land's adminiatraticn. Their editors do Dot hold pcotoffices. If it were within the range of human possibilities to look as nice as the men in the fashion plates, how the stock of hap piness would be increased. Tus Japs will borrow $50,000,000 with which to tight the Chinese; and their de scendants will be paying the principal several times over, as we have had to. Wnr did John Y. Breidenthal confine Lis criticism of bcodle methods to the river towns. They haven't any lead pipe cinch over Topeka'a police department. The astronomers have discovered that there is no air on Mars. This ought to beat Southern California as a resort for consumptives. Thoy would have no use for lunga. It seems to have taken a Gatiing gun to make some of the candidates on the Republican ticket get ou to the plat form, but they are thare now. We hope It won't be necessary to tie them fast. Cosohessmah Brocehici's position oa silver doesu't neid any defense. Uis record sparkles liku a new silver dollar, and Mr. Broderick will do his best to see that we have plenty of them. Vote for Broderick. If oil Father lledilL of the Chicago Tribune, should l.ve sixty-seven years longer, and continue to increase his vitu perative ability, there'll be no living in Chicago with hiix lie's a fit candidate for the ducking stosl, now. A 6 toby comes flora Washington, Ma, that when a garter snake was killed near there the other day, ninety young snakes were counted, which the mother had se creted within herself. This Washington Mo., doesn't see La to be the owner of a hatchet If a petition bearing several thousand names (no matter whose) were presented to Got. Lewelliu to appoint Beelzebub oa one of the state boards, he would ap point him. Leagtl and cot quality al ways guides our discerning governor in oo&.aidrlng a petition. A iwelti-foot windmill at Garden City raises water from a thirty-six-foot well with an eight-Inch cylinder pump at tha rate of slity gallons a minute, which covers an acre of ground one and one-half laches deip in tea hours and socoetsf ally irrigates thirty acres in general crops. It has taken Western EknMs uit fifteen years to learn that it Is bettor to irrigate than to wait for un it rt?rjjr I -V. EXIT RAIN MA xh ES. The rainmaking farce has ccme to an end. The system, if it can be dignified by that appellation has been weighed in the balance and fouad wanting. While there was moisture ia the air It was pos sible in many cases by bombarding the heavens and waiting a number of days to obtain raia and a nice sura of money from credulous people who were ren dered desperate by seeing tteir crops burned up. But the game is now played out and we shall hear no more of the tainmaker. The people of Kansas and of all the arid region of the west, should now turn their attention to some systematic scheme of irrigation. Much has been done and is still being done in the southwestern part of the state by tapping the under flow which is reachei at a depth of from fifteen to thirty feet. The water is rained by windmills and discharged into reser voirs from whence it is conducted over the land as needed. One large plant of this kind will furnish sufficient water for about fifteen acres. The plan is not very expensive but it can only be used to a limited ex tent because as one goes north the dis tance to water increases until in the vi cinity of Goodland the underflow lies at a depth of 160 feet Then, there is aacth er consideration. If the country becomes cultivated and the amount and veloci ty of the wind should decrease as great ly as it has in this portion of the state in the last 30 years there might come a time when it would not afford sufficient power for such large wind mills as are necessary. It is believed by many that the plant ing of trees and a system of email ponds would be the best means of exerting an influence on the ranfalL If by some such systematic action a good eized pond could be dug oa every quarter section, when they were once filled full of water it is believed that the evaporation would produce enough moisture in the air to insure a sufficient rainfall throughout the year. Each land owner could dig his own pond without expense other than a little time, but of course a unani mity of action would be necessary to se cure the desired results. What a spectacle do we see ia Ne braska. The editor of the le tdiug Re publican newspaper in the state resign ing his position oa the national com mittee because the nominee for governor is, he says, "a forger, a perjurer, and a man who has converted the room of the lieutenant governor in the capitol of the state into a den of debauchery, and whose nomination is procured by the combined influence of corporate cappers, profess ional bribe givers, jury fixers and im peached state house otiicials." Aud when his resignation ia accepted, h'.s place is filled with John M. Thurston, a paid rail road attorney. Was there ever such a stench in Kansas politics as thut? Fat, pudgy, vulgar Gaure M. Pull man is the typical American money king, giving hi3 commonplace daughter away to a worthless European princeling with one hand, while he drives out his ragged starving workmen from their houses with the other. What a picture! Is thia what millionaires strive and overreach and browbeat and well nigh steal to ac complish; to marry their daughters off to scrofulous and penniless foreign noble men? The Ohio State Journal has taken down the name of McKinley for presi dent, and nearly every Republican paper in that state is now silent upon his can didacy. Perhaps they will rind this out at Lawrence, Kansas, a year or two from now. WORKERSIIOTFOIIPOLITICS Worklngmeo Going Into G'mii iiiinln. la Earnest Old 1'arties Worried. Milwaukee:, Wis., Aug. 24. There are strong indications that what is known as the labor vote'' is going to cut a big figure here this fall. For the first time the labor unions are taking united action, with the"object in view of forming a solid body for political purposes. Wiiile Rob ert Schilling still remains at the front there is any amount of new blood being infused into the Populist party here, and it will only be a short time before these new man will be heard from. Most of them are officers of the various unions and they are all genuine workingmen men who really work for a living and have the contiieuce of their followers and fellow workmen. At the big meeting held Sunday the unions were united for political action by the formation of ward clubs in every ward in the city. There is a strong feel ing among the workingmen that the time for united action has arrived and that they caa accomplish by the ballot what they failed to accomplish by strikes. There are among thee unionists men who are closely allied to the old parties, and from them come reports that are greatly worrying the Republican and Democratic manager. '-I came very near being thrown down two flights of stairs for just hinting that we ought to vote the Republican ticket this fali,"said one of these men in making a report to a Republican leader. "The boys are in earnest and they believe they will carry the county over both the Dsmocrata and Republicans. The big strike of Chicago and the calling in of the federal troops and the federal court injunctions have aroused them." A Democratic union man who is doing some work for the county committee made a report that was almost identical. "If you want to win out," said he, you want to declare yourselves in with the labor party this fall." But the labor men are somewhat foxy and do not propose to have the Demo-' crats indorse them, and to prevent such a contingency they will not hold their con vention until after the Democrats have placed a ticket in the field.

I was passin from the strngg'in town of Bald Hill to the enterprisin settlement of Last Chance when a critter overtakes me in a humble way and meekly obsarves: "Stranger, we know not what a &&J may bring iortn, and the wind bloweth wear the listeth." "I hev obsarved that she do," 6oa I, "and procrasti nashun ar' the thief of time." "Yes, she be, and he that eeek eth truth eeeketh a jewel of great price; also, we cometh up like a flower and ar' cut down." "Trooly, my "iambctatobm." friend, trooly. From yer languidge I should Infer that ye was a humble worm of the dust." "Yea, I am but a worm." "And what pertlckler line ar' ye worm In in now, if it hain't strictly private biz ness?" "A-s'archin." he replies, with a mourn ful sigh and several shakes of the head "a-s'archin fur a waterfall and a lake be low it, with islands and green shores wharon ye kin sot as night wraps her xuantle about her, and the medder larks and whippoorwills cum down to give up to thar sad emoshuns." "That would be too rich fur the blood of sich a humble worm as I am. I'm not expectin to live In heaven and Cherokee at the same time. When I'm done with one, I hope to tie t'other. Into each life a leetle rain must fall; also, man dieth and wasteth away, and whar Is he? "And we know not how soon we may die. Likewise, a bird in the hand is wuth two in tho bush. Humble worm of the dust, yo kin unburden yer woes to me in strict confidence. I take it that the part ner of yer busum is no mora on top the airthf" "No moro, no more," he sadly replies as his emoshuns was visible to tho naked eye. "And tho bereavement is of recent date?" 'Jest two weeks ago today. It's only within the last two days that the humble Worm has begun to feel frolicsome ag'in." "The lamb and the widower may frolic, and man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn." "Yea, stranger, yea. But we kin not al ius sorrer. " "Mot if we kin find a second wife, and I think we kin. I think wo kin not only find her, but within tho hour the sadness which now occupies the chambers of yer soul will hev bin crowded out to make room fur another tenant. I know a bank on which the wild thyme grow s that is, i t would grow thar if a widder and her peaceful flock had not tak en up all the room afore the wild t h ym e had a squar chance." "Art she young and coy?" he asks C--. Us. I t i-i ON THE banks OF wolf as he wipes away ECS. the reflective tear. "Skassly, my humble ole worm, or she wouldn't be waitin on the banks of Wolf run for sum critter to cum along and go sailin with her out on the oshun of luv. Ye hain't no right to be too doggonedper tickler under the sarcumstances. " "That's true," he sez as we reaches the top of a hill and takes the left hand road "Bein sumwhat young and coy myself, I naterally preferred sum one with whom my soul would bo in unison, but I shan't kick about it. As to the children, how ever?" "Thar's nine of them, as nigh as I could count in ridin by, and mebbe they'll go as high as 'leven. At any rate, if thar' hain't TiuS jo kin find plenty to adopt. Ye hev all the 'pearances of bein a fond and luvin father.

" 'Leven children will make a pooty big busum, I take it," sez theoleworm as the hump on his back humped up a leetle higher. "What's that to do with it?' sez I, pull in up my hoss and lookin him over. "Sum body's got to marry that widder, I take It." "Yea, sumbody has." ' "And sum critter has got to be seated la the busum of that fam'ly?" "Yea, yea. Whilst under other sarcum stances I should prefer sum thin young and coy, with not over two encumbranoes, I shall xnak no kick. On the contrary, let us hasten our pace." Half an hour later we reached the wild thyme bank and found the widder and the children camped In and under a wagon. ihe widder was bareheaded, bare armed and bare futted, but the way she made the dust fly as she had a soothin ef- i fee on the hum- f . ble ole worm, who had at fust teem ed on the p'int oi gallopln off.

"And I've got a claim of 60, 'leven chil dren and a habit of gittin out to work at 5 o'clock in the mornin. Yo hain't much of a critter when compared with tho crowd, but I reckon it's tho best both of us kin do under tho sarcumstances. Ar' ye will in?" "Yea, willin'ly willin." "But who's to marry us?"

There is a law in France which Imbit ters the life of every dramatic author, a.s it confers upon every French citizen the right of having a novel or play immediate ly suppressed by the police if his name happens to be mentioned in It. If a char acter in a comedy bears the name of Du pont or Dubois, all the Duponts and Du boisea in France are entitled to insist on a change of the name, or, if the manager re fuses, of the removal of the play from the bill. In their anxiety to avoid unpleasant ness the parodists of the Cluny theater de cided to designate the characters in a re cent piece by means of numbers. The ef fect thus produced is somewhat peculiar, as for instance: "Ah, charming 133, you are the most adorable of all women!' "And you are a flatterer, Count 18." While the two were thus exchanging compliments an elderly gentleman sud denly appears and called out in a voice of thunder: "I have caught you now, Count 181 Are there any cowards in your family?" "Gracious!" whispered Count 18, trem bling in his shoes. "Gracious! Duke 53." 'Seventy-four," exclaims the duke, "turn this gentleman out!" But at this point a fellow In tho audi ence springs to his feet. ' This is really too bad!" he shouts in the direction of the statre. l will send you a summons." The duke answers in surprise: "What have you to complain of? Seventy-four is only a number." "That's just it. It is the very number I bore when in jail, and lam not going to be degraded by having a servant dubbed with it." Everybody hod to give in to that argu ment. It was the law. Tho play was stop ped there and then. I have never been able to ascertain what further befell the charming 182, Count 18 and Duko 63. I have not been able to sleep at night through speculating on the subject. Pittsburg Dispatch. As Larjre as an Eej. The man from Port Huron was giving the reporter an item of news. "Yes," he went on, after saying he had something to tell, "we had quite a storm up our way the other day." "Any rain?" inquired the reporter. "Some, but it was the hail I wanted to Epeak about. " "Much hail?" "I don't know whether you would call It much or not, but there wasn't a hail stone fell that wasn't bigger than an egg. " "Come ofl!' dissented, the reporter. "Did many fall?" "Millions of them." "You must be the hailstone liar," sug gested the reporter. "No, I'm giving you the straight truth." The reporter still had his doubts. "What kind of eggs?" he ventured.

The river is so dry at Ottawa that they have to drive the street sprinkler along it to settle the dust. The ground being very dry all the horses at the Leavenworth races are "out for the dust" It was a lucky family indeed in Arkan sas City that wasn't serenaded during the recent full moon. The annual western conference of the M. E. church south began its session at Arkansas City yesterday. The death rate at Lawrence has been very small this summer, it is reported. It ought to be nil, there is no use doing a thing twice. A biar Methodist camp meeting is to be held at Zeigfler's prove north of Eudora, beginning September 3rd and continuing the rest of the month. The farmers about Leavenworth are cutting their early corn, and are unable to do their fall 'plowing for wheat be cause the ground is so dry and hard. Fully 125 veterans of the Home Keeley league at Leavenworth will attena the iNationtl Keeley league meeting at Col orado Springs, September 11, 12 and 13. Six young men of Centropolis had a keg of beer Sunday and are now under arrest for disturbing the peace. It is but a short step from the keg to "the jug."

A man from Oklahoma, Louis Ida, jumped out of a second story window at Wichita without any apparent provoca tion. Oklahoma people are so addicted to jumping claims they can't shake oil the leaping habit. Col. Percy Daniels has been employed to survey the grounds for a new water works reservoir at Girard. Mr. Daniels seems to have a better pull with the Girard city council than with the Popu list administration. Russell Harding superintendent of the Wichita division of the Missouri Pacific who has just resigned to go to the Great Northern was presented with a watch by the men working on his division at Wich ita Wednesday night. Chancellor Snow and party, who have been in New Mexico on a natural his tory collection trip, are expected back the last of the week. Things became suf ficiently uninteresting for one of the party to write a letter home. The horse that the ex-reform school boy Rocksy Willey stole and traded off at "Wichita has been brought to Welling ton and recognized, says the Mail. That's a good deal more than could be done to some livery stable Horses wnen tney are brought back from "a little drive around town." The Populists advertised a big rally near Centropolis the other day, when a mean Republican got up a ball game for the same hour and day in the neighbor hood, and the Populist speakers could distinctly hear "Now you're otf," "He's got a glass arm," as they talked to the empty benches.
