ATCHISONGA. RROW The CAR. Post Wanted More Old Soldiers Policemen. Facts Show They Have Five Oat of Eiht Already. OTHER STATE NEWS. Another Missouri River Dike Building at Leavenworth. A Heroic Emporia Girl Saves Two People from Death. Atchison, Oct. 2C At its last meeting E. C. Johnson post, G. A. Jt, passed reso lutions condemning the members ct the board of metropolitan police commission ers of Atchison for their alleged failure to observe the Kansas law giving old ?ol diers the preference in the matter of ap pointments to office, other qualifications being equal. The action of the board is iu strong contrast with the action of Atchison peo ple peneraliy, who, a few months airo, condemned the same board for tilling the positions at their disposal with old sol diers who were apparently incapable of performing the duties to which they were assigned. At;the present time the department employs eiiit patrolmen. Of this num ber John WeKs, Keury Miller, Thomas Harrington and George Midisou are old soldiers, and Robert Dickerson was ap pointed at the request of old soldiers, so that the? have five of the eight patrol men. There are two extra patrolmen. One of these. F. 31. Hiuds, is an old sol dier. The position of day jailer, now held by Roland Anderson, was given to John H. Kurth, an old soldier, but he worked a day or two, and, finding his physical con dition was such that he could not per form the duties, he retired, and the board appointed Samuel Clark, another old Eoidier. who also resigned within a week. David Baker, secretary of the pol.ee bo;ird, i3 a member of E. C. Johnson post, and fought the resolutions, saying they would disgrace the G. A. li. l.-KAVE E.Ul'OltiA GIRL.

K. & T. cros-ing iu the southeast p ,rt of the city, on their way home Thursday even ing, their team became unuiaaageab'.o and started to run a way, and but for the heroic rescue by Mi; Nettie Hopkins, they would in all probability have bean ground undr the waeeis of a passing freight train. Mr. Secever !iad dropped the lines to pull on his overcoat and the horses seiz ing the opportunity, had buunled off at breakneck speed toward the r.ii".road cressinu. Miss Hopkins, seeing that the approaching train and the runaway must iuvitabiy met on the crossing, ran ia front of the frightened team, and at th; risk if her life succeeded in si ickeumg their pace. She then sprang to one side and caught a daag.ing line, halting the team just in time to save lLo lives of ihe oid people, wiio were utterly powerless. Miss ilopkius is tne daughter of E. P.

Oct. 26, The spread of diph theria in the city during the past !?w days has caused considerable alarm among tnose who realize the dangers which accrue from this dread disease. The situation is all the more serious because the majority oi people are ex tremely careless in the matter. Children from homes where the disease has gained a loothoid mingie with other children oa the streets; the quarantine of tho police is ignored, and in many other ways the malady may be desseminated simplv through carlessnsss. There have so Tar been eighteen cases reported to the authorities. These are not all that have occurred, however, as it is known that there have been and are now children sick with the diphtheria who have never been reported by the at tending physicians.

A Correspondent Gives a Let of Reasons of Which ?iot All Are Reasonable. From the Westminster Gazette. A correspondent, whose sex we de cline to divulge, sends us the follow ing twenty-one answers to the above question. "Why I Hate Vi'oman:" 1. Because she stabs me in the eye with her parasol, offers no apology and locks as if I did it. 2. Because she pushes for a place in trains ar.,-1 omnibuses and, being in, never makss any room for any other people. 3. Because, in public, her prattle is audible and unceasing, and includes the biographies' and characteristics of aii her friends by name. 4. Because she discusses frocks with her sister oppoite, and describes fab rics and fixings as if at her dress maker's. 5. Because she climbs to the tops of omnibuses, to descend from which demards grace and decency 6. Because she thinks the only way to make an omnibus stop is to prod the driver, if she cannot reach the con ductor. 7. Because, being of that class for which omnibuses are cot, she spoils her coachman and ruins her horses by hpr ignorant or inconsiderate use of them. 8. Because, being of any class, she loves a "remnant day" and dotes on bargains. 9. Because she displays her bag, loses her handkerchief and carries her purse in her hand 10. Because she recites, plays vio lins and rides on bicycles. 11. Because she reads accounts of weddings and lists of presents in la dies' newspapers. 12. Because she walks three in a row upon the pavement and expect3 every one else to make way for her. 13. Because she worships priests and deacons, as well as illustrious per sons and cavalry officers. 14. Because she is "fluent but not lucid." and more concerned about the number of her facts than the truth of them. 15 Because, in nine cases out of ten, she can neither sew, nor read aloud nor make tea. 16. Because she is always writing letters and wanting me and others to answer them. 17. Be"Tjse she is the slave of fash ion; and that not only in clothes, but in art. music, manners, religion, flow ers, jewelry, language and furniture. 18. Because she does not value any thing simply because it is "good" (fol lowing a fashion set in the days before woman existed), but because it is "worn," or "done," or even "talked about." 19. Because If she is "nice," she is sure to be conventional; and if she is not conventional, she is generally not nice. 20. Because if you tell her a secret, she passes it on at once to other friends "I don't mind telling you, dear, but it mustn't go any further." 21. Because she is often careless as to food, and thinks cheapness the first requisite in wine. atarvrlou Itnalts. From a letter written by Rev. J.

Gun General Sporting News Home and Abroad. from Although football has been crushed out at Baker university the men who learned the game upon her gridiron are almost without exception playing star engage ments with other teams, AH but two of those who played on the famous '93 eleven are either coaching or are receiv ing pay as players. Harry Heller, right half back, is coach iug and playing with the Denver Athle tic club. George Toomey, full back, has recently been engaged to coach the Uni versity of Denver, where Prof. Cleaves, formerly of Topeka, is teaching. Charles ("Ugly") Taylor, left end, is coaching Union college, New York. Those who are playing on teams for a consideration are Clay Allen, quarter, Ed Pendleton, center, Bert Potter, left half, and II. & Farrar, right tackle, who are playing their positions at North western university, Chicago, with the exception of Pendleton, who is playing right guard. The Chicagoans are going wild over their work. M. W. Games, right end, is the right end for Kansas state university. Thoma3, coach and right guard, is still playing in Nebraska. This leaves bjt two players, Atherton, left guard, and Fogle, left tackle, who have retired from the game. Besides these a number of the substitutes and second eleven players are coaching minor teams. NOT GIILIT. Charjel Made Against L. D. C'abanne and i T. Titus Unfounded. . New York, Oct. 26. The action of the racing board of the League of American Wheelman in delaying taking action upon the charges made against L. P. C'abanne, F. J. TitU3 and C. M. Murphy, the class B racing men of violation of the racing rules, has given rise to the opinion that the charges made against these riders are groundless and that the hesitancy of the board in announcing the result of its investigations is due to its reluctance to censure one of its own board. F. J. Titus, who is impli cated with Cab.iune and Murphy in ar ranging a deal to arrange a race in Sr. Louis in August, said that he believed the racing board would reader a decis ion upon tne charges within one week. Titus eipects thai ttie accused riders wili be fuiiy vindicated and atSruis that uot a particle of tangible proof is in ex istence to convict any of tlie men, while ampie evidence has been submitted to the racing board to exonerate the men from the charges. ANOTHER TIE. Tiiird Shoot lte'.ween Ottawa and Wells ville Teams. The third shoot between the Ottawa and Wellsville Gun clubs resulted in a tic, as did the first match. The second shoot of the series was won by Ottawa by five birds. Gray, Beardsley and Brown of the Ot tawa team were unable to take part in the last match on account of sickness. The five other members were allowed to shoot at eighty birds each to make the 400 for the team, The shooting was of a high order, the score averaging So' per cent.

Topeka repays the compli ment by inviting the Ottawa men to take part in the Halloween parade. They have replied that they will do so, aud It is expected that a large number of them will attend. McCaJT rty liayit ".Unrphy." The running horse Murphy, by Isaac Murphy, formerly owned by Arthur Massey, of Topeka, is considered so good that he has bea bought by the eastern jockey, McCaiFerty. The horse is now at Dailtis with the rest of McCafferty's string and v. il 1 go from there in two weeks to New Orleans to do winter rac ing.

Let Cs Renew Oar Love for Place of Sacred Memory. In a recent sermon on domestic evils Dr. J. B. Shaw, of New York cfty, said j that the greatest evil is the decadence ol our home life, that is, the robbing or our domestic circles of their home element. He then adds: ' Taken as they run, New York homes are wholly unworthy of the name. They are not more. They have no fireside glow, no atmosphere of domesticity, none of the restful serenity, content and con geniality which characterized the homes of our forefathers. Would you know how inferior our homes are, com pare them with those of London, a city ruore than twice as larje as ours; com pare them with the homes of our outiy- ing country districts; compare them i with the homes of our childhood, the j memory of which is always a I delight and a benediction. How rarely do our families come : together except at the table? How j seldom do they form a circle and keep j it iat.icl even for a single evening! i How infrequent is an evening at h ires I with the. young men a 1 women of Ihe household! They seek their pleasures I abroad. To sit down and spend a quiet ; hour with the family would be a "core" and an affliction. Even the "old folks ! at home" have no attractions for them. I In our homes, as well as out in the rush, i of business, we are most of us restless, uneasy and nervous. r ondness tor home is almost an extinct passion. Short Lives of Presidents. From some recent life insurance sta tistics it app- 's that the presidential office is a fatal one. At Washington's inauguration his expectation' of life, accord ing to the in surance tables, was sixteen years, but he lived only ten years. The next sev en presidents not only lived out their expectation of life, but the two Adams es, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Van Buren, and Tyler exceeded it. But Harrison fell nine years short of his expectation of life. Polk seventeen, Taylor eleven, Pierce seven. Lincoln sixteen, Johnson twenty-two, Grant seven, Hayes three, Garfield twenty two, and Arthur fifteen. It is true that Lincoln and ".... field were assassinated, but the assassination of a president should always be taken into account as a possibility. Our first eight presidents exceeded their expectation of life forty-five years in the aggregate, while their success ors fell 110 years short. This may seem strange when it is recollect ed that the length of human life has steadily increased during the century. The compiler of these statistics sug gests an explanation. He says: "The fact seems plain to me that the presidential office is becoming too heavy a burden for any man to assume without alnir-:t certain shortening of his life. The responsibility is so great, the tension so destructive, that I never again expect to see a president survive the full period of his natural expecta tion." Evidently the presidential office is a dangerous one, but very few of our pat riotic statesmen will ever decline il on that account. Atlanta Constitution They Did Not Uelieve It. Youth's Companion: There are cir cumstances under which a tolerably sharp "retort courteous" i3 justified. A Prussian officer iu the conquered province of Alsace one day visited a chapel in the outskirts of a town. Among the offerings of the devout peasantry, he perceived a silver mouse, which so excited his curiosity that he asked an explanation of one of the ( natives. "The story is." said the Alsatian, "that an entire quarter of the town was infested with an army of mice which was a veritable plague. At last a devout lady caused a silver mouse to be made and offered it to the Virgin. Shortly afterward every mouse disap peared. The officer burst out laughing. "What," he said rudely, ":, it pos sible the people of this country are so stupid as to believe such things?" "Oh, no," quietly replied the tian; "for if we did, we should ago have offered the Virgin a Prussian." A!sa long silver Information Thrown In. "I would like a copy of Victor Hugo's masterpiece," said the lady who had entered the book, store. "I don't think we have any book of that name," responded the boy behind the counter. "That is not the name of tho -"nrk. It merely describes it, rejoined the cus tomer. "Published lately, ma'am?" "It was published many years ago. Surely you have Victor Hugo's greatest work?" "I don't know whether we have or not. What's the name of it?" " 'Lay Mee Say Rahbl,' " replied the lady, desperately. '"O, you mean 'Les3 Mizzerbles." Yes'm, we've got it." Training a Cavalry Ot A curious story comes from Berlin. A lieutenant of a Uhlan regiment made a bet about six months ago that he would train i young ox within six months so that it would obey the word of command like a cavalry horse. The trial took place a few days ago on the drill ground of the Uhlan barracks in the Invalidenstrasse. It seemed at first as though the officer would win the bet. The ox trotted, galloped right, galloped left, and did everything perfectly, till It came to the vaulting. In this the animal failed, and the officer lost the bet. He was congratulated, however, on his perseverance and success in tr&i&ing so unpromising an auimaL MRS. EUSTIS DEAD- Wife of the United States Min ister to France Expires. DeathCame Suddenly atRotoath, Ireland, Today. MR. EUSTIS SHOCKED. Sick Himself the News Makes His Condition Worse. Mrs. Eustis's Eeniains to be Brought to United States. Paris, Oct. 26. Mrs. James R Eustia, wife of the United States ambassador, J. B. Eustis, died suddenly this morning at Rotoath, Ireland, of heart failure. She had been ill for only a few days. Mrs, Eustis, at the time of her death was vis iting at the country residence of her nephew, Wm. Eustis. Mr. Eustis had just been notified of the illness of his wife and was at the embassy preparing to start fur Ireland when he received the dispatch announc ing her death. This message reached the embassy at noon today. Mr. Eustis, who was suffering from a bad attack of bronchitis, sustained such a severe shock that his condition became worse. But if his physicians wili permit it he will proceed to Ireland. The funeral ceremonies will probably ake place at Rotoath and the body will be shipped from Queenstswn to the United States.

CHICAGO 3IAKEKI LETTER, Famished by Tapek (irain nail Stock Ex change, 36 Kansas Avea u. Wheat Extreme dry weather con tinues in the winter wheat states and foreign cables continue to gain strength and come higher as every day goes by. The market opened this morning at an advance of ''c over night, and although the market was very quiet and a small amount of business transacted, prices held firm. Cudahy and the big bear plungers made several at:-ernpta to break the market, but Armour's brokers picked up all offerings in a quiet way. Last spring when May wheal was sag gins around 53 cents, we wrote our trade that we firmly believed it was on rock bottom, and if bought as an investment, and margined 3 cents, would hold good through the worst and make handsome profits. The market promptly vindicated our judgment, and those who acted promptly on our judgment were givei an opportunity to clote their . deals ith a net profir of $300 on every 1,'JUO bushels, or every $3J invested. Now we wish to go on record again as saying that wheat is a good purcua- e, and if the drouth is not broken soon will cell higher, than it has before in years. The short interest is enormous and any attempt at covering will force the market up at a rapid gait. The price is likely to advance 5 cents any day on short covering alone. If good rains should come no good would result from if. as it is now late in the season, and cold weather wili boob be upon us, and the growing season is practically over and the brown fields will remain in that condition. Cora and Oats Elevator people have been selling corn. Receivers say there will be a big movement alter the first of November. The new corn ia expected to come forward freely, as there is no money in holding it. Oats have been dull and declined in sympathy with corn. The market ruled firm however.and only a slight break was recorded. " Provisions More unfavorable reports are coming in from the southwest as to the spread of cholera among hogs. Tho light average weights show that a great deal of stock .is being marketed that ought to be fed a few months longer. Chicago Market Gossip. New York, Oct. 26. It would not take but little buying here to put De cember wheat up 1 to 2c a bnshel. There's none for sale and foreign houses own that option. Liverpool says their receipts of wheat are very light and are anxious to know what our shipments will be to that port for the uext four weeks. Our Liverpool people say they will be light as most of the freight room for the time mentioned is taken for corn. Bull news on wheat keeps coming in.

An order to buy 25,000 put the market up of a cent. Closing on Popular Stock. The market was ragged and closed somewhat easier. The fear of further gold shipments was the principal bear feature. Though the rate in sterling has been but Vjjc per pound it is within Jc of the point where it is believed gold could be shipped to London without loss.

To the Editor of the State Journal: The Daily Capital has frequently of late referred editorially and locallv to j my support of Mr. Robert Kepley for sberiil, and has frequently stated that 1 claim to own and control the colored vote, and that I will, in consideration of delivering the same to Mr. Kep ley, be one of his deputies if he is elected. This statement does Mr. Kepler aud myself a rash injustice, and in addition to that is an insult to the colored voters. The colored people of this state are an intelligent class of vot ters and know how to vote without any instructions from me or any one else. They are us free from the iufluanca of bose3 aa the white voter. It is true that I am for Kepley, and in my support I have been open and zealous about it. It is equally true that a great number, if not a great majorit3-, of the colored voters are also earnestly supportihg him. They recognize the fact that Mr. Kepley has for many year3 em ployed them to work on his contracts and has paid them liberally for their services and has always treated them fair. While he was furnishing them work and paying them good wage3, Dave Burdge was en joying some inferior official posi tion, living on a salary and mak ing 1 fees by charging them with crime and prosecuting them. While Mr. Kepley has been their friend, Burdge has been their opeu, active and avowed enemy. There Is no reason on earth why the colored man should vote for Mr. Burdge, and there is every rea sou why he should support Kepley. As for being Mr. Kepley's deputy, in case he is elected, I desire to say that I do not expect to be, and have now a promise of a position under Hon. Geo. R. Peck, which 1 expect to accopt on the 15th of next month. If Mr. Kepley is elected I do not expect, personally, any profit from it, directly or indireclly, nor any sssistance by reason of his election in any shape or form, I am for Mr. Kep ley. lie has been a friend of the colored man, and 1 am against Mr. Burdge be cause he has been their entmy.

The Topeka Daily State Journal Again Breaks AH Records. By its sworn detailed statement of circulation for the first half of the year 1895, it is shown to have a circulation, during the six months as stated, of a Daily , Average y)Oo4 This is the greatest show ing the State Journal ha3 ever been able tt) make for a period of any six months in its history. This is a giater pgure than was reached by any daily paper in Topeka for the year 1894. The Ameri can Newspaper Directory, issued in June, 1895, and : covering the year 1894, give3 the average daily circula tion of the Topeka Daily Capital for the year 1891, as only 8,711-. These figures were furnished by the pub lishers of the Capital, to tha Directory, and are guaran teed to be correct by a for feit of 100, which will be paid to any one disproving their correctness. The following figures, sub stantiated by sworn state ments in detail, giving every issue for the first six months ! in 1893, 1891 and 1S95, shows i the Topeka State Journal's Wonderful Growth. Daily average first 6 months 1893 Daily average first 6 months 1891 6,407 7,980 Daily average first 6 months - . 1895 9334 The boast of the Topeka Capital that it pays more i postage than all other To- peka dailies combined, only proves the meagerness of its I local circulation as com j pared with that of the State j Journal as no postage is ! paid on any circulation ! within Topeka or Shawnee county. The State Journal's local circulation is far and away ahead of the combined cir culation of all the other Topeka dailies. The circulation of tho Topeka Daily State Jour nal in the towns near by : and tributary to Topeka is i very large, as the evening j trains in various directions carry tne . dtate Journal giving its readers the first and latest Associated Press and state news of the day,
