KXSSES THE GOVERN 01? OrRatherdt Is the Governor Who Kisses Her. PREITI MISSFAPY MOON SURPRISED. 6v. Morrill Plants a Fatherly liiM on II T I.Iri He Tore the Whelo l'o-lver.it- ti knew Her When Hilie Wns a Little Tot. Governor E. N. Morrill kissed Miss Fanny Moon of Topeka yesterday morn ing in the state university hall before several hundred students. The occasion of this action was that the governor was so glad to see an old acquaiutauce that his joy overcame him and he kissed one of the prettiest and most charming young ladies at the un versity. Governor Morrill had just fin ished his address to the large audience, and the closing song had been sung, when Miss Moon, anxious to see her former townsman, stepped forward to grasp the hand of the governor of the state, and tell him how glad she was to see him. Miss Moon used to live in Hiawatha, and is well acquainted with the family of Gov. Morrill. he young lady approach ed the platform with a warm flush and a bright smile upon her pretty face. The governor descended the steps from the platform and was standing talking to Chancellor Snow. When Miss Moon stepped closer, the governor's attention was attracted to her. "How do you do Governor .Morrill, I'm so ." Miss Moon was unable to tell him how glad 8he was to see him, for ho had drawn her into his arms in a fatherly embrace and pressed a firm and resound ing kiss upon her lips. There was an instantaneous 'and profound sensation throughout the room, but Gov. Morrill seemed oblivious to it. He looked ex tremely happy. Miss Moon blushed deeply. The students looked on in amazement. Miss Moon chatted a moment with the governor, recovered her composure in a few moments and bade the great man adieu. Her girl friend pretended to be quite envious that she should be so par ticularly singled out. Governor Morrill's address to the stu dents was a.very short one, but he spoke very earnestly, and said some valuable things. After the usual introduction in saying it gave him especial pleasure to be before the students that morning, he said: 'It is my especial pleasure to meet young people. I always feel like taking the advantages of grey hair (though I don't feel very old.) to give advice. I could give you valuable advice from an active busy life of over 40 years." Then he gave the students some good suggestions. "Above ali things," said he, "is strictest integrity. Don't do a mean thing or dishonest thing. Better lose a right hand than be dishonest. There is uo royal road to wealth and edu cation." The governor told of an inc ident in the Black Hills. A stranger inquiring for a certain man, asked a native if he knew such a man. The man replied: ' You just bet 1 know him. Ha will stand without hitching."

The first thing that appears like a clue to the disappearance of fifteen year old Edward Illson who lived twelve miles southeast of Topeka has been reported to Sheriff Burdge. L. B. Garlinghouse, who lives five miles west of where the Illson boy lived, is the informant. He says that on the afternoon of the day young Illson came to Topeka far his load of sand a rough looking man, who carried a small ritle appeared at the or chard of a neighbor who lives across the road from Mi. Garlinghouse. A boy about sixteen years old was iu the or chard, and the man approached aud opened a conversation. They talked of guns and shooting, and ttie boy informed the stranger that he also owned a rifle, and going into the house brought it out and he and the stranger spent some time shooting at a mark. The stranger was anxious to traae guns, but the boy refused, and while they were talking a boy with a load1 of sand came in signt. 'T believe I will ride with that boy if he goes my way" said the strange::. He got into the wagon with the boy and together they turned east toward the lilson home. , It was about a half mile from this place that the sand was found. This oc curred at about half past four in the evening aud the description given by the boy of the boy who was in tho wagon leaves no doubt that it was Edward Ill son with whom the stranger rode away. The neighbors have offered $200 roward for the discovery of the lost boy. Frsh Thins Every Day. Fruit Cake, Cream Puffs, Brandy Snaps. Home-made Mince Meat and Pies.
