The ctlicers were armed with a war rant charging him with selling- liquor, which was sworn to by two women. Louis was in, as he ge israliy is, for he devotes Lis time wiiuliy to his business. It required a great deal of time to ex plain to Louis what was up. Louis' com prehension of English is not extensive, and the constab.e has allowed consider able dust to accumulate on his Greek grammar. By diligent searching- the oi'icera found to bottles of inferior beer and a jug of whisky. "Looy," a he is called, aid not t urry a bit in closing up the store, but took his own time in bring ing in the peanats and things from the sidewalk, aud last, but not least, taking euro of the parrot. "Say, Looy," j elled an urchin, "who'll feed the parrot while you're gone?" "Looy" replied in his native language, but it sounded e.nphatic. On the way to Justice Furry's court, "Looy" stopped at P. L Bonebrake'a otiice and made arrtngements to have that gentleman act as his bondsman. At the justice court Air. Furry said: "Louis, do yau know what you are charged with?" "Me?"' "Yes." "Charged with?" "Yes, do you inowf ".Me, charge! with what?" I' You are charged with selling liquor." "Yes, you." "Oh, sell whiska, that's all right." Whisky and beer both." ".Me sell beer?" "1 hat's the charge." "Me no sella ler. lie no sell whiska. lie drink whisk-t and beer all the time, but me not sell cone. Fellahs offer me a dollar "1 fix your bond at $300," interrupted Justice Furry. "Dot's all right," replied Louis, "me have a tousanu dollars in de bank, ana rue have a tousand in de store." He didn't go to jail, and within an hour Louis and his parrot were doings business at the old stand. WASHBURN NOTES. James Webb ia working for the Elliott Wolfe insurance agency.

C Meeting at In dianHpolis on Her Ac rount. The closing session of the Western Christian Temperance anion was one of the most disorderly in the history of that organization. Many of the deleaes re sented the prominence of Hele-n IL Gougar. who practically turned tfce con vention from one called to advance the interest of temperance to a womaa suf frage affair. 'lhe subject matter this morning waa the report of the committae on resolu tions, and Mrs. Gougar est on the roa trum and insisted on doing most of the talking-. Oae woman went to a ieading woman In the convention and asked her to haul Helen oS the stage, as she was a red rag to most of the delegates. Mrr. Gougar, however, was not ousted. The president had little control over the dele gates, and at one time to restore order she was compelled to ask a sinter to lead in prayer. The resolutions adopted indorse that political party by whatever name known that will advocate suffrage for women. The convention determined to organize one thousand aat.cigarstta leagues in In diana this year. "There Is a S ilve lor every wound."

For the first time in four years Topeka real estate dealers wear countenances which indicate that they have something to do. Topeka U not enjoying a boom, but real estate ia moving and it is not being bought by speculators either. The bottom prices have been reached and not a day passes, but that some important sale is recorded. One of the most important sales of the week was Rowley Bros. corner at Sixth street and Kansas avenue yesterday re ported in this paper. The sale has been closed and the deeds made. The prop erty was purchased by United States District Judge C. G. Foster for $2),0JJ cash. Rowley Bros, will continue to oc cupy the building, but Judge Foster ex pects to build a magnificent structure on the corner within two or three years. Tne building occupied by J. B. Bar tholmew fc Co., at 6jtJ Kausas avenue, has been bold this week. M. F. li.gby is the purchaser and he paid f lo,UUJ in ! cash for the property. Mr. liigby ex ; pects to soon erect a new building and I will move his confectioner and fruit busi ness to the new location. C. J. Devlin has lately purchased six lota at the corner of Thirteenth street aud Topeka avenue. The purcuase price was $ 0,50 and lr. Devlin is now budding a handsome new residence on the property. Tne three lots at the corner of Third street and Topeka aveuue have been bought by J. A. Ranney for $6,000, and he also will build a large residence at once. The T. U. Thompson property at 1263 Topeka avenue has been sold to ex-Mayor R L. Cofran for $5,7Ua The house will be remodeled and Mr. Cofran will make it his home. A. W. Parka of North Topeka has pur chased the John D. McMichael property at 1212 West Sixth street for $4,5ua Mr. Parks will occupy vhe building as his residence within the coming year. These are only a few of the most prominent sales which have recently been made in the city. There have been numerous sales of smaller properties in all parts of the city. Ihere is also a great deal of inquiry for faim property in this county. The largest sale made recently was the Barnes' farm of 64(J acres, near Dover, for $14,00U. T. H Bowman was the pur chaser, aud he also bought eighty acres just south of the city. An eighty acre farm near Watson was sold this week to O. M. Whitlow for $i,U'J0 in cash. R E. Taylor, who has lived in western Kansas, has purchased a 16J acre farm two miles east of the city for $5 Jan acre. He will move his family on to the place soon and will make it his home. J. B. Bartholomew said, in speaking of the movement of real estate: "There is a better feeling in real estate than for several months. There is a great de mand for farms of from 80 to ltio acres, and the 'demands come from bona tide settlers who want homes. Things look better for Topeka." At the office of T. E. Bowman & Co., the reporter was informed: "There are a great many people looking for farms. There was a man here the other day who represents a colony of fifty families in Pennsylvania who are going to settle within fifty miles of Topeka. They are American farmers and expect to locate in Kansas soon. There is more activity in real estate than there has been for several years." Ross & Co.: "Things are looking up in Topeka. I have made some figures and find that since January 1 over 214, U00 worth of property outside of sheriff sales has changed hands in Topeka. Property is being sold nearly every day, and real estate sales are better than they have been since the boom." 8. M. Wood: "Property is being sold daily aud I have several large cash sales 'on' now which will be closed this week. The sale of property shows a good healthy indication. Wre are selling farms to people from Indiana, Ohio and Illinois aud there was a man here from North Carolina today, who intends to buy a farm near Topeka for cash. People now realize that the bottom has been reached and that real estate is on the upward tendency. Desirable rental property fs scarce in Topeka and we have more demands than we can find property for." BURGLARS PREVENTED. A. Daring Attempt Made to KoT the "Wilkesbarre, Pa., PostofBce. Wilkesbarei, Pa., Oct. 11. A daring attempt was made to rob the postotiice in this city at an early hour this morning by two men who had secreted themselves in the building. When the night clerk, Lewis Garney, opened the door leading from the mail room proper to the main entrance for the purpose of collecting mail from a box in the corridor he was confronted by a man who thrust a re volver in his face and told him to throw up his hands. The clerk was frightened almost to death, and jumping back slammed the door in the face of the burglar. The assistant cterk blew a police whiatle, and several officers were ?oon on the scene. The burglars had lied however. Frank Charles was arrested about an hour after the attempted robbery on sus picion. The postoftice is situated in the heart of the city, and the would-be burg lars doubtless thought Garney was alone in the oiice. as it was time for his assist ant to be oil duty.
