Abilene Chronicle: The Topeka State Journal has a web perfecting press, giving it a splendid equipment.

Bscause the "lion." like "nis Excel lency" and other silly titles doesn't mean a lythiag, while the military titles are in most cases fairly and honestly won.

It wa3 a splendid play the Populists made (from a purely political stand point) in which they won the A. II. U. vote in Topeka.

Such a piece of politi cal stupidity has never before been wit nessed in Kansas. Gov. McKinley will speak at Topeka October iS, to as many acres of people as can get within range of his voice. Kan sas City Journal. Will the Journal please correct the above to read Hutchinson instead of To peka? Hutchinson News. There is no need for a correction. Mc Kinley is going to speak here as well as at Hutchinson, and he will speak to "acres of people." Rev. Chaklks M. Sheldon is a young man of courage'and high moral convic tions. He will do for this town to tie to. Mr. Sheldon appears to act on but one principle; viz, be sure you're right, then go ahead. MARTIN'S DILEXXA. By the Stain Journal Poet.

COLONEL INGERSOLL SAYS THEY ARE A WEARING LOAD. $t the Ores Orator and Lwjar Eajoy a Princely Income A. &Xa of Simple Tastes and Pleading- Manners Carefully Pre pared Addretaes. fSpecial Correspondence. New York, Sept. 20. Colonel Rob ert G. Ingersoll is to be found in a suit of rooms near the top of one of the tall est buildings 011 Wall street. Their ceil ings are quite low; their walls are crowded with law books; their floors, made of hard wood, have neither carpet nor rug to break the Bound of footsteps. The deriks and chairs are of the ordinary type. Nothing in the rooms gives any indication of an occupant with a large income. Although no one but Mr. Ingersoll himself knows precisely what that in come is, friends somewhat familiar with his affairs estimate it to bo from $50, 000 to $ 100,000 a year. So much money would easily enable him to rival tho luxury of the offices of some New York lawyers, but he appears to prefer plain surroundings. It is a curious fact that thoe of his home are not unlike those of his offices. Although his income is largo, ho is known to have very effective means of getting rid of it. He is a gen erous man, giving tp all beggars, whether big or little. Then, again, he is prone to yield to the solicitation of promoters of schemes, and without in vestigating these echenifs as he ought ho puts his money into them. As a con sequence, ho often finds himself out of pocket. It is not an easy matter to find out what Colonel Ingersoll is doinsr. He ia very much averse to talking about him self. Iu fact, nothing can be elicited from him directly regarding the matters that occupy his attention. Ho ianoc sus ceptible to the flattering argument that as a man that has attracted attention by his ability as an orator and lawyer peo ple, particularly those who sympathize with his well known views, are inter ested in learning all that is possible about him. He sternly refuses to pose as a great man or to cater to the popular taste for biographical detail. He does not think that people are worth writing about uiitil tbey are dead, and not then even tin less they havo done somethin? to make them worth remembering. Colonel Inf.erscll i3 not. however, an unapproachable or a reticent man. While the practice of his profession ia exceedingly exacting of his time and strength, he never refuses to seo a aows- :' f -X, ' 0: v- ' e: COLONEL INQERSOI.L AND HIS GRANDCHILD. paper interviewer. He does not fail to treat him with perfect cordiality or to talk about anything except himself. If his visitor is interested in science, he will talk about that, or, in history or re ligion, he will talk freely on that sub ject. And he will manage to ruako himself verv entertaining too. But he refuses to permit the publication of any thing that he says unless it be in his own words, verbatim et literatim. His theory is that no man. however honest and painstaking, can reproduce exactly the ideas and language of another with out being a shorthand writer. So if the interviewer cannot write shorthand Colonel Ingersoll will, if he has any thing to say to the public in prin, ask for a list of questions, dictate Lis an swers to his own stenographer and fur nish a copy. Some of Mr. Ingersoll's intimate friends, with whom he sometimes talks about his work, are not so averse as he is to personal disclosures. "I was very curious to learn," said one of these ; friends, "how he wrote his lectures. I had an idea that they did not cost him much effort, so I mustered up courage one day and asked him. I learned, much to my surprise, that he spent a good i deal of time on them. He works very i hard to get the right word, one that ! will not only express his idea, but give : the proper rhythm to his sentence. Some j paragraphs in his lectures have cost him many hours of the hardest labor be- ! fore ho got them into the right shape. I There is nothing unprepared or sponta- i neous in his writings or public utter- j ances. " m i While Colonel Ingersoll is, as the ! world goes, a rich man, he is known to regard the millionaire with some pity . if not contempt. "A great fortune," he I once said in the writer's presence, "is j a heavier and more ridiculous load than the old man of the sea. A man had bet- j ter be dead than rich." It is of course easy for Colonel Ingersoll to talk in this ; way. He has plenty of money and doubt- i less finds it a great convenience. "If he were to remember," said a friend after Learing his opinion, "that $50,000 is equivalent to an income on 2,000,000, I I e would see that he, too, belongs to the I despised class of millionaires." i Colonel Ingersoll's household com- I prises, besides his wife and her sister I and his two daughters, the husband and '. two children of one of the daughters, j and two cousins. He is devoted to his j home and family and cares nothing for j society. He has a house on Fifth avenue j and a summer home on the Hudson near Dobbs Ferry. N. W. P. J Disadvantages of Ttapid Transit.

Interesting- Career of Commander In Chief Lswlcr of the Grand Army. Colonel Thomas O. Lawler, the new commander in chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, is an Englishman by birth aad a thorough American by train ing. He first saw the light of day in Liverpool 50 years ago, bnt hss lived nearly all his life in Rockford, IJis. His parents were poor, and he wasard at work as a boy of IV when the war be gan. He promptly went to the front with the Nineteenth Illinois infantry and served throughout the war, partici pating in all the battles of his regiment. General Rosecraus complimented him for his bravery, and he was mustered out as sergeant brevet captain. After the war Lawler organized the Eockville rifles and served 12 years in the national guard, rising to the rank of colonel. He joined the G A. R. in 1866, soon after it was organized, and for 26 yeara has been post commander of .-::-: 1 V f THOMAS O. LAWLER. Kevins post No. 1, which, although net the first post organized, is now the old est one in existence. Lawler is such an enthusiastic member of the G. A. R. that it is said he has missed but one post meeting in a quarter of a century. His term of service as post commander is also without an equal in the history of the Grand Army. He has also served as department commander of the order in Illinois. The occasion of his twenty fifth anniversary as post commander was made quite an event in Grand Army circles, and he was presented with a diamond medal in honor of his long service. Ho is not only popular in Grand Army circles, but at home as well, a fact that is demonstrated by his 1 2 years of serv ice as postmaster of Rockford. Colonel Lawler was a close friend and confidant of General John A. Logan, who'-n h- closely resembles in appearance, it is said. He has been frequently spoken of as a promising candidate for governor of Illinois on the Republican ticket. THEY MIXED THE WATERS. How Oakland Prohibitionists Nominated Herbert In Mistuke For Albert. The Prohibitionists of Alameda coun ty, Cal., never mix anything if they can help it, but they receuily succeeded in so thoroughly mixing Herbert and Al bert Waters of Oakland that they nomi nated Herbert for county clerk in mis take for Albert. Every one in Oakland was amused by the odd error that is, every one but Albert. The brothers are twins who lo&k so much alike that their mother cannot tell them apart, and it is further alleged that when Albert and Herbert look in the mirror each some times wonders which one of the twins he is. Not long ago Albert, who is an ambitious young politician, concluded that he would enjoy running for county clerk on the Prohibition ticket. He placed himself in the hands of his friends and was assured that the nomi nation would be his when the county convention met. Then Albert did a very foolish thing. Unmindful of the fact that his twin brother was at large in Oal-land, he went to Fresno on business, leaving his friends to look after his political fences. When convention day came, Albert was still in Fresno, and Herbert, who was ignorant of his brother's political aspira tions, strolled into the convention hall, where, to his surpirse, he met with a very enthusiastic reception. Albert's HEPtBERT AND ALBERT WATERS. friends were out en masse, and they were locking after his fences in loyal fashion, but Herbert know nothing of this and silently congratulated himself on being more popular, with his fellow townsmen than he had dreamed. He was still more agreeably surprised a few moments later when the convention nominated him for county clerk without a dissenting vote. He was called upon for a speech and greatly surprised his brother's friends by earnestly declaring that the honor was a great surprise to fcim. The convention adjourned without discovering that Herbert was not Albert, and two days passed before Herbert learned that he had captured a nomina tion intended for Albert. He will run for county clerk, however, and expects to profit by Albert's popularity on elec tion day. One of the greatest jokes con nected with the affair occurred when one of Albert's friends mad? profuse apologies to Albert, as he supposed, only to learn later that the apologies had been made to Herbert.
