Washtngtoh, Sept 11. Forecast till 8 p. m.t Weduesdav For Kansas Fair, slowly rising temper iture; southerly winds. The withdrawal of J 1 Hudson in the Third district means that the fight ia over in that district. Jeff Hudson throws up the sponge. Is the Populist party marching through a slaughter Lous to an open grave. The hard pressed farmers of Kansas expected so much from the Populist par ty. It ia a shame that they have been so deceived. Senator Puffer says this eesaion of congress was nothing- bat a "grab game." Bo the senator grabbed at salt and wool; with indifferent success, however. Kiowa County Signal: Tha State Jourxal of Topeka ia the only reliable Republican newspaper published at the state capital; and it gives all the news, too. Nothing prevents a man from being a Democrat. Cue of tha hardest workers ia last Saturday's convention ia an avowed socialist, and an ablo advocate of so cialism. Pastor "Wake is bnng more or less persecuted for his opinions. He will find that the right of free speech while not denied, involves a gra.it many incon veniences. Will, Col. Tonilinsou shut up all the wicked drug store when he is elected pro Late judge? The coloiel never drinks a drop, and can't be expected to look with too kind an eye on illegal liquor selling. "Tub Autobiography of a President" la this moatL' Cosmopolitan, ought to be read by everybody who is in danger of becoming too much of a partisan. Even Senator lagalla could enjoy a laugh over it. Charlie Uollidat will have more fun out of running for oZice than he did out of running a newjpaper. Charlie always looks cn the cheerful side of everything; oca may lay, on the humor ous side. The Mayor has the old-fashioned no tion that be ia mayor of all the people in Topeka, and not merely the representa tive of a party. This is one of the few old-faahioued notious that this age ought to endorse. It ia to be hoped that the pretty little euburb of Lowraan Hill is not to be rended asunder, because the Ilev. Rich ard Wake stands on hit rlarhta as a citizen and insists on talking prohibition to the people there. It is agreeable to note that Gaspard C Cl'mens ia hil new njvel happily mar ries everybody oil Mr. Clemsns, fortu nately doesn't believe in auarchy ia the relations between men and women, whatever he may thick about it politi cally. The in&ueatial papers in this state are joining the Statk Juhnai. in calling attention to the evil of judges taking railroad passe. We l ope they will keep up the agitation. lie .it winter let us have Boiae wholesome legislation, on this subject. Meantime the judges ought to return their parses. Txzs so-called "Municipal League" which started out to trosecute the joint keepers, ought to beoocne a municipal league in earnest and enlarge its sphere and its membership. There is room for much educational work ia line with what la being done by municipal leagues in othar cities. Independence in politics is the puri fying element that driyes out corruption. Vote with whatever prty suits you, but insist that the men who hold odea ia that party shall be worthy your vote. Always reserve the right to tira them down if they are not the right kind of men. It is the independent elenuat ia th Populist party that ia going to vote again3t evil leaders in that party t lis year, and it was the Independent voter in the Republican party who rebuked hij party two years ago. Tha independent voter ia the hope cf the cotmtry. No very Lig political iaala can Le pat through If Lo la oa jjnard, General Coxet ia making his cam paign for congress ia the Massillou dis trict in a UQique way, If he should suc ceed it may reasonably be expected that the circus method of carrying on a campaign will becoma p opular. An or ganization of a similar scheme was pro posed by some Populists in thia stats two years ago, but it fell through for either lacs of money or of nerve to carry it out. Another result of tha success of the Coxey method would be the demonatra tioa of the value of advertising ia poli tics. Wherever liberal and judicious advertising has been tried it has paid and why should it cot pay Coxey? Senator Puffer's statement that he voted for a tariff, on salt because tha tar iff matter waa a grab game in which each member tried to get all he could for his constituents, will hardly justify such a course in the eyes of the people. Unless free salt would reduce the price of that commodity to the consumer, he needed no excuse or apology for his vote. If, on the other hand, a tarid on suit was to put money into the pockets of a dozen men at Hutchison at the expense of the rest of the people of the state, then his vote on that phaaa of the bill was hardly justified. THINGS LOOK BETTER. T. 1$. Jennlnict' Weekly Weather-Crop Bulletin a Cheerful One. The following is the weekly weather crop bulletin of the Kansas weather er vice for the week ending September 10, 1894: The conditions have teea very favor able thia week, for although there has been a daily average of nearly sis de grees excess in temperature, yet U sun shine has been more nearly normal, while the rainfall has generally been much above the average. Abundant rains have fallen over the larger portion of the state, being least in the north and northwestern counties and greatest ia the southeastern. The greatest excess of rain occurs in the southeastern part of ilariou, across Chase and Greenwood into the southwest part of Woodson. During the week pastures have fresh ened, the old grass haa "greened up" and new grass has started. Wheat that was sown right after harveat is coming up and at the close of the week is two inches high, fiax and oats that were shelled in harvesting are growing, gardens have revived, apples have ceased to fall, buf falo grass is green, meadows have en tirely changed their appearance, and stoekwater is becoming more plentiful. July planted corn is silking in the aonth. The coming week will see much ground prepared for wheat. T. B. Jkmngs, Observer Weather Bureau, Director. MYSTERIES OF ONE HIKE. A. Brother's Wheel CT1 With Dlnas trons Rasnlta by Two Sisters. There is a New York family which has a country place in Westchester sounty. In the family are two young women who (in town, at any rate) are extremely digni.led and extremely sonventionaL There ia also a brother, who beeame infatuated with the idea that it would be good exer cise for him to ride a bicycle. Oa a tnnlight evening, when the brother was not at home, the two sisters stole quietly out to the barn and brought forth the bicycle. They were arravel In strange and weird costumes which they had improvised f or the occasion. They wheeled the "machine' over to the tennis court and than, for the benefit of the sleepless Hara and the wide-awake moon, gave an exhibition of attempted bicycle-riding which would make the fortune of a roof-garden miD&jar. The result of that little performance, not counting in the bicycle, may be summarized as follows: One wrecked tennis net, two broken poles, twenty five square yards of ruined turf, jrushed and broken shrubbery in lare quanties.one twinted ankle, one knee sap bruised, two arms stiffened, and seventeen separate and distiuot blaek-nd-blue spots. "It'a funny," say the girls, con fidentially, "that a bicycle goes back ward when you want it to go ahead, nd can run into two dozen things at one time." "What I can't understand," says the brother to the whole family, "is how a load of brick fell on my bicycle when it was locked up in the barn." The girls have nothing' to bay to this, and when their brother is in their presence they heroically walk without limping. A Healthful Enterprli for Olrls. A writer recommends g'irls who wish to make money at a healthy oc cupation to try the raising- of flower eeda for market. Begin, he suggests, with the seeds of some such popular Bower as the sweet pea or aster or phlox, set aside some choice plants, find train them for competition; go to dealer in flower seeds in your town or community and tell him what you are doing and ask him to give your seeds a trial. Advertise in your local paper and by and by you will have built up for yourself a business and be earning something all the time. As an instance of extreme success the writer refers to sweet pea enterprises that bora seed abundantly, one of them three tons in a year, which were sold at a crood profit.

It Will He Held In Washing-toa In Octo ber Something About the Origin and Gowth of the Society Ita Wsik and Alma. The present may very properly be termed an ago cf societies. Whoso has an object, grave or gay, important or cf little moment, to accomplish straight way forms a club or a brotherhood or a eociety, and if the reason for the organi zation have any vitality at all the thing sought to be accomplished is already as good as done. The convention of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew that ia to be held in Wash ington next October, beginning on the 11th and lasting four days, will be a gathering of one cf the most important Bocieties, looked at from a religious standpoint, now in existence. The brotherhood was formed 11 years ago. Its founders were young men, all members of the Bible class attached to the Sunday school of one of the Episco pal churches in Chicago. Their teacher, a banker of the town, was a young man, too, and they often talked of and la mented the fact that more young men did not feel called upon to live active Chris- .".ft. -sA JAMES L. HOUGHTELINO. tian lives to take part in the work of the church and the promotion of good habits and upright life among their fel lows. One day some member of the class euggested that a society of Christian young men bo formed for the doing of Christian work among young men. The idea pleased, and the society came into being, its name being chosen not in hon or of Scotland's tutelary saint, but be cause the original idea of the organiza tion was suggested by the following passage of Scripture: "One of the two which heard John speak and followed him wa3 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own brother, Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiaa. And he brought him to Jesus." John i, 40, 41. The now brotherhood was organized very carefully and with due regard to the performance of effective work. Its members, though all at first from the one Bible class andof the Episcopal faith, were of various walks in life physi cians, lawyers, clerks, merchants, me chanics but all young and earnest. They adopted a badge and set about their self appointed task with a wilL Mindful of the mandate, "Forget not the assembling of yourselves together," they sought to impress the necessity of church attendance upon all with whom they came in contact, confining their efforts to the winning of young men. One brotherhood man who had a friend in view went so far as to change a pleas ant for an unpleasant boarding house so that ho might be near the object of his solicitous care. It is stated that the young man was won. It was not long before the pews of the parish church that was headquarters of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew began to fill with young men, whereas tbey had before been conspicuous mainly be cause of their absence. Then the news of the new departure began to spread, and presently inquiries were made by devout young men of other parishes looking to the establishment therein of similar brotherhoods. So the brother hood grew and multiplied, and in 1886 there were enough brotherhoods to make it worth while to bold a convention. It was not a large gathering, but it was a fervent one, and its plain talks, straight from the heart, detailing experiences of brotherhood men in their work among their fellows, were of great value in strengthening and enlightening those who were present. "When it was over, they went out fortified in their deter mination not to "count all men breth ren, " but for each to "count every man his brother." Conventions since that time have been held in New York, Cleveland, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Bos ton and Detroit in the order named. The attendance at these gatherings has been quite a thousand in number for two or three years now, and it is ex pected that it will be still larger at Washington. It will include a large delegation from Canada, for the brother hood was heard of there some time ago and has made for itself a foothold in 149 parishes, with over 2,000 members. In Scotland the society flourishes, a concordat having been signed between the order there and here, and the same is true as regards Australia, while over tures have been made by distinguished English prelates for the purpose of ef fecting an organization in England of a brotherhood along the lines laid down by the parent American society. The officers are: President of the gen-' eral council, James L. Houghteling cf Chicago, who has held the post by unan imous voice of the brotherhood since 1SS8; first vice president, G. Harry Davis of Philadelphia; second vice pres ident, Silas MacBee of Sewanee, Tenn. ; general secretary, John W. Wood of New York; treasurer, John P.

The Republi cans regard the result of yesterday's election as the biggest victory they have ever achieved in this state. The vote for governor, which two years ago was 130,000, ia reduced 15,000 to 20,000, but even with this it is alleged that Cleaves has received 70,000. In every one of the sixteen counties of the state, the Democracy has been defeated. Evary city in the state has probably gone Republican, which is something phenominaL The returns show nothing but Republican gains. The returns so far Indicate that Johnson, Democrat, will not get over 35,000 votes, to 55,00'J cast for him two years ago, and this may be reduced by later returns. All four of the Republican congress men are elected by largely increased ma jorities. The Republicans have carried both branches of the legislature, electing a solid senate, which two years ago stood 30 Republicans and one Democrat. In the house of representatives, which consista of 151 members, and which two years ago stood 107 Republicans and forty-four Democrats, the Republicans, it is be lieved, have elected 110 members, while the remainder have been elected by the Democrats and Populists. 3 p.

At the Santa Fe general manager's of fice this afternoon it was announced that the Santa Fe has made arrangements to haul seed wheat into the counties of Kansas and Oklahoma where there have been crop failures free of charge. Applications for this free transporta tion must be made direct to F. C Gay, general freight agent, who with the land commissioner, John E. Frost, will have charge of the matter. The distribution of the seed wheat will be entirely in the hands of the county commissionera. Ightlng&le Schools. In Russia when a person happens to possess a nightingale which is a good singer, the bird is made a sort of teacher of music to others of his kind in the neighborhood. Many Russians seem to be in the habit of keeping pet nightingales and the neighbors bring their cages to the owner of tha finest one, that the inexperienced birds may listen to the singing of their master. The latter are reported as keeping quiet and listening in tently. Then after a while they ven ture a note or two, then another, and another, till they have caught the song and can go through with it. It is said that the nightingale sits in ap parent meditation, as if inwardly re hearsing, and then bursts out into song. Thing: Looked Seriona to Sandy. A volunteer sham-fight took place re cently in England. During the retreat a Scotch volunteer, in scrambling through some bushes, stuck fast in a hedge. One of the advancing foe, seein the situation, for a joke cama toward the unfortunate volunteer at full charge, with his bayonet fixed and a ferocious look on his face.
