New York, Dec. 13. One of the great
est crowds that ever filled Madison
Square Garden was collected within its

Oscar Julius is the most talked-of
man in the ring. With trainers that
did not know their business, without
being in any sort of condition, he ac
complished 1.500 miles. Kinz is anoth
er surprise. He was tending bar in a
Raines hotel on Sunday last, and at
midnight he was on the track, ready
to start in the race. Over 1,600 miles
go to his credit.
Just fifteen men out of the thirty-six
that started lasted until the finish. No
wonder that it was a heart-breaking,
killing pace. Not one Saturday night
could change his place on the black
score board that has stared the poor
fellows in the face for six long, weary
days. A few rode fast to beat out Ri
vierre and Moore, who had places on
that board though they were out of the
race". Some did it; others failed.
With the exception of Rice, Enter
man, Miller and Sehinneer, none of the
men seemed to have suffered any men
tal effect from their long ride. All of
the men named had to be given nar
cotics to quiet them. Physically all
of the riders were in as good condition
as could be expected.

Shippers Want Government Stamp
Put on Cattle Sent Abroad.
St. Louis. Dec. 13. Congressman
White's agitation in regard to the mi
croscopical inspection of cattle intend
ed for export is bearing fruit. The
probatilities are that congressional aid
will be invoked at once to provide for
a government stamp being put upon
cattle which are to be sent abroad.
Chairman Wadsworth of the commit
tee on agriculture has received a letter
on the subject from Nelson Morris of
the Union Stock Yards at Chicago. In
this letter Mr. Morris says:
"The hog raising industry in the west
is suffering on account of not having
microscopical inspection In one of the
great markets of this country, at East
St. Louis. The National Stock Yards
at St. Louis receive daily a great num
ber of hogs which make the kind of
product that sells well in European
countries, but there is no microscopical
inspection such as other western mar
kets have. Products of 10,000 to 15,000
hogs a day of the kind coming to East
St. Louis can be disposed of in foreign
markets if the East St. Louis Stock
Yards can get this microscopical in
spection, to which they are entitled the
same as any other market. Now is the
time when there must be more outlet
found in European countries for our
hog products, as we are having more
hog products than there is a market for
In this country. We packers are will
ing and anxious to open new channels
for these products, for which the hogs
coming to East St. Louis are adapted."

Proper Way to Prepare Food Ele
ments. If this should reach the eye of a
reader who has been disappointed in
the taste of Postum Food Coffee, it is
respectfully urged that a new trial be
made with the knowledge that the
crisp delicious flavor can only be ob
tained by allowing it to continue boil
ing full 15 minutes after boiling com
mences; this does not mean 15 minutes
after being placed on the stove, please
True there are many who mix one
half coffee in their Postum and such a
preparation will yield a pleasant flavor
after 5 or 10 minutes boiling and will
have a proportion of food value, but
the strong food elements and choice
flavor can only be obtained from pure
Postum by sufficient boiling.
There is no question among those
who have made the test, that when
common coffee and white bread are re
placed by Postum Food Coffee and en
tire wheat preparations, there is a
steady growth towards a vigorous,
hearty physical and mental health.
Each one can improve the health of
body by the use of natural food and
the dismissal of unnatural food. -
The delicious feeling of health well
repays the attention and the charming
beverage, Postum is a comfort vhen
properly made.
Hie French Army Officer Involved In ttao
Ireyfus Scandal.
Connt Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy,
the retired French officer who is charg
ed with having written the letter which
led to the imprisonment o'Z Captain
Dreyfus, ia only one of many Esterha
zya Europe is full of them. Esterha
zys who sport the title of connt are as
common there as John Smiths are with
ns. There are no fewer than five princes
of tho liamo and counts beyond count
ing. There are Polish Esterbazys and
Austrian Esterhazys and Esterhazy3
who are somewhat in doubt as to their
nationality. It is only in the Austrian
branch, however, that the rich and
princely ones aro to be found.
This particular Count Esterhazy, how
ever, is but a left handed relative of tho
aristocratic Esterhazys. He is said to
be the natural son of one of the Austri
an counts cf that name. His mother
was a Frenchwoman. The count recog
nized his son, but did not legitimatize
him. He gave him a fine education,
however, secured him a place in the
French army, and Ferdinand himself
won promotion and social position. Ho
possesses stars and crosses which give
him quite an imposing appearance in a
drawing room, and until recently he has
been welcome! everywhere. At present,
however, he i3 under a cloud.
Count Esterhazy was a major in the
French army until early in the year,
when he retired on account of ill
health, but those who know him say
that he is a most robust invalid. It is
hinted that he foresaw the coming
charges. A few years ago ho was a poor
man. Now ho is rich. Perhaps he feared
that the French government might be
too inquisitivo as to "how he got it. "
Prince Paul Esterhazy, who has been
mentioned as the prospective husband
of Mrs. Laugtry. is quite a different
person from the count and no connec
tion at all.
The Governor's Dau'itf r Who 1 TiLM Re
cently Become Famous.
You know what Shakespeare says
about a woman scorned. He describes
her wrath in a rugged but terse and
forceful sentence. Governor Bradley haa
lately realized, if he never did before,
that Shakespeare spoke by tho book.
Miss Harriet Eainbridge Kichardson,
- A.
one of the most beautiful of all the bine
grass belles, is the young woman who
considers herself scorned.
It all happened in thi9 wise : About a
year ago, when he was secretary of the
navy, Mr. Herbert promised several
prominent Kentnckians that the new
warship now nearing completion
should be named for their state. The
promise was made at a dinner given in
honor of the secretary. Miss Richardson

Herbert was so charmed with her beau-
ty that ho also promised that she should
have the honor of christening the new
But a year has bronght many changes.
Mr. Herbert ia no longer secretary of
the navy, and Secretary Long asked
Governor Bradley to select a young
woman to christen the Kentucky. Ha
either did not know or did not care that
Miss Richardson had been promised tho
honor, for he announced recently that
his daughter, Miss Christine Bradley,
was to perform that oflice. No sooner
did Miss Richardson hear that she was
to be set aside than she began making
things warm for Governor Bradley. In
an interview she said some caustio
things abont him and insinuated that
he was lacking in gallantry, on which,
as every one knows, every Kentucky
gentleman prides himself.
Governor Bradley's defense is that
the chamber of commerce of Lexington
and the board of trade of Louisville, be
sides many individuals, had petitioned
him to appoint Miss Christine. She is
the only daughter of the governor, a
handsome brunette, and is just 18 years
old. At present she is attending Wash
ington college, Washington. She is a
charming young woman and is descend
ed from a family of distinguished sol
diers. Monument to the Potato.

To Remain There in a Cottage Until
Spring, When Peary Will Take
Them Horn a.
New York, Dec. 13. Four of the six
Eskimos who have been in Bellevue
under treatment for bronchitis since
October 30 were removed from the hos
pital yesterday morning.
ey were taken to a cottage at
High Bridge under the supervision of
Superintendent Walters of the Ameri
can Museum of Natural History. Dur
ing the winter their condition will be
be closely watched. Those who were
removed were: Kushan, 33 years old;
Nooktur, 45 years old; Whuhu, 23 years
old, and Menney, 10 years old. The oth
er Eskimos, Anghar,35 years old, and
Ahuhu, 2 years old, have not as yet
sufficiently recovered to leave the hos
pital. The four who were released wanted
to know where they were going. Wrhen
told it was north of their present quar
ters, they gave evidence of delight. The
north is the charmed quarter to them,
and during their confinement in the
hospital they have spent many hours
gazing longingly out of the north win
dows of their wards.
They all visited the ice cellar for the
last time, and Menney, the 10 year old
boy, insisted on filling his pockets with
pieces of ice. They were then put into
a coach and driven to High Bridge.
Explorer Peary will take them to their
Arctic homes in the spring.
"Will Spend Threa Months on the
Mediterranean Coast.
Kansas City, Dec. 13. Major William
Warner, who has been sick with an at
tack of the grip for three weeks, left
last evening for New York and during
the week will sail for Europe and spend
the next three months on the Mediter
ranean coast. The trip is taken on the
advice of his physician, who told him
he needed a rest. It will be the first
vacation he has taken for over ten
years and he expects to come back re
freshed and ready for more work than
he has ever done before. A few weeks
since, when he was taken ill with the
grip he found himself in poor physical
condition to rally from it and was quite
willing to take the advice of his physi
cian and go abroad. He will spend a
portion of his vacation with Gardiner
Lathrop, who is spending the winter on
the Mediterranean.
Officers Attach Corinne'a Scenery in
Favor of the Santa Fe.
Chicago, Dec. 13. Deputy Sheriff Nich
ols has attached a car load of scenery in
the Chicago & Alton railway yards, the
property of the Corinne Opera company.
The writ was in favor of the Atchison,
Topeka & Santa Fe railroad, which had a
claim of $1.1C0 for hauling the scenery
from San Francisco to Kansas City.
When the company reached Kansas City
it turned the freight over to the Alton
road, which brought the car to Chicago,
and the opera company, it Is said, failed
to settle with the Santa Fe company.

Thomas W.Keene's "Richelieu" in this
city last season was much better than
either his "Marc Antony" or "Shylock"
at the Crawford theater Satnrday.
Enough people went to see Mr. Keene
as "Marc Antony" Saturday night to
make one of the largest audiences that
has been in the Crawford theater this
season. While the lower floor was not
full, standing room was sold in the bal
cony, and several ladies bought tickets
to the gallery. This is significant, and
could be easily construed to mean that
Mr. Keene's tragedy is regarded as
good only at reduced prices.
Mr. Charles B. Ilar.ford. Mr. Keene's
leading support and manager. is thought
by many to be a better actor than the
tragedian himself. He makes a better
stage appearance, and his delivery is
above that of the tragedian. His in
terpretation of the character of "?.Iar
cus Brutus" in "Julius Caesar" Satur
day night was entirely satisfactory.
Of Mr. Keene's supporting company
as a whole little in the way of praise
can be said. There are a few excep
tions, and one of these is Mr. John Mil
ton, the former Washburn student, who
took part of "Bassanio" in "The Mer
chant of Venice." and the title role in
"Julius Caesar." The young actor's
real name is Harry Sullivan, and for
several years he attended Washburn
colIegein this city.
After closing a successful week's run
in Kansas City Saturday night, Flo Ir
win and her company come to the
Crawford theater in this city tonight
in "The Widow Jones." The advance
sale has been good.- and a large audi
ence will probably see one of the most
entertaining comedy pieces that has
visited Topeka this season. Like her
sister May, Flo Irwin is addicted to
darkey songs, and has several catchy
ones to intersperse with her work as
"The Widow." Ada Lewis, who helped
to make "Sister Mary Jane's Top Xote"
famous, will sing her "Oompah" song,
and unique sketches will be introduced
by other members of the company. The
piece Itself contains much witty dia
logue. Tomorrow night Hoyt's "A Bunch of
Keys" will be seen at the Crawford
theater in this city. This parody on
hotel life was Hoyt's first big success
and has been on the road long enough
for the majority of theater goers to
become familiar with it. The advance
notices state that the farce has been
shoved up to date by the introduction
of new specialties in place of the old
ones. The sale of seats is now open.,-

Maryland Courts Close the School of
Art and Design to I-aegroes.
Ealtimore, Dec. 13. The lengthy con
test of Robert W. Clark, Jr., colored,
for admission to the Maryland School
of Art and Design has been decided
against him. It was a vigorous fight to
break down the color line at this insti
tution. Judge Ritchie dismissed the
petition for mandamus and found
against Clark on every point, declaring
in substance that he could not ask for
such mandamus under the constitution
of the United States, under the ordi
nance of the mayor and city council, or
under the contract of the city with the
Maryland institute. Clark's counsel
immediately entered an order of ap
peal. The case will be taken to the
court of appeals of Maryland. It may
reach the I'nited States supreme court,
as a question of interpretation of the
constitution of the United States is in
volved. Under its charter the institute claims
it is a private corporation and Judge
Ritchie says the fourteenth amendment
has nothing to do with this case.
The trouble arose over appointments
made by colored city councilmen to the
schools. The city annually appropria
ted a fund for the institute in return
for which a certain number of students
appointed by the city are admitted.
