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
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
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
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
'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."

TRACE OF THE LOST BOY.
A Ulan With a Gun Seen to Get Into His
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.
