BUILT LIKE CHAMPION. Ilia Owner Purchased Him For $16,000 In 1898. To Race Jean Beraud and Others atSheepshead June 16. New York. June 6. One of the first racers to run a mile over a circular track In better than 1:40 was the Imported mare Maori, then raced by A. G. Campbell, of Louisville, Ky. Her time was 1:39 4-5, and the Washington Park race course at Chi cago was the scene of the exploit. Long before the late D. D. Withers realized what a high-class stallion had been In his possession, the grand breeding of Eothen was appreciated by others. The owner of Maori made a bid for the fine stallion and became his owner at a nominal figure. Crossed with the record-breaker, the great horse now known as Ethelbert was the result. Milton Young bought the colt fur $l,0oo, and he was one of a batch of fifteen youngsters sold to Galway, Arkell & Klmore, when that firm raced horses in IK'S. Ethelbert was a stout,, substantial colt even then, and many good judge9 predicted a bright future for him. In the fall of 1&H8 he was sold to Perry Belmont at public auction for $16,000. Never has his owner had cause to re gret this purchase. Among other races won by him in 1S99 was the Realization Stakes. Luring the summer he was taken sick and was not thoroughly recovered when Rafaello defeated him at Morris Park, at a big difference in weight. A few days later Ethelbert turned the tables on his erstwhile victor. Since then his progress has been steady. He is a medium-sized bay horse evidently of fine con stitution. In the paddock on Saturday his physical condition was superb. He was iit'.e a prize renter in tne pmK or condi tion. Horses like this are not seen every day. But it does not follow that In all future meetings between Ethelbert and Jean Beraud the latter will be beaten so early in the race as was the case on Saturday. Mr. Vosburg, the official har.dieapper, calls that race a seven pounds victory for Ethelbert, for that is the concession which he requires that horse to make to Jean Beraud in the Brookdale Handicap, to be run at Gravesend on Tuesday at a mile and an eighth. In a race w-ith a fair-sized field both these horses would be held under wraps, while the light-weighted horses made the pace. Both Ethel bert and Jean Beraud would probably make their bids in the last three furlongs and the difference between them would not be the ten or a dozen lengths which separated them on Saturday. Neither would the time be 2:08 1-5. Something like 2:0i would be nearer the mark. There is an impression that Jean Beraud is not quite sound. Whether or not this is well grounded is not known. One thing is cer tain that no ordinarv horse could plav with Kinley Mack in exercise work, which is what Jean Beraud has been doing. Neither could the veteran trainer Peter Wimmer (handler of Ben Holladay), be so much mistaken as he was in his expeeta tion concerning the outcome of the "spe cial" unless Jean Beraud had given him good cause for it In his private works. Both horses will again meet in the Su burban, to be run on Saturday, June 16, at Sheepshead Bay. Imp. rumey Mack, Bat ten. Box. Rush.

All the players feel pretty sore about . losing Saturday s game, but agree that it was a, great contest from the spectator s standpoint "Never before," said Tebeau this af ternoon, "have I been witness to a game of ball like that. We lost it be cause McGraw was put out, but even then we could have won it if It had not been for a couple of errors and some circus plays by Hamilton and Tenny. Emslie was sore on McGraw and put him' out for that reason, and not because of his kicking. 'Mac' hadn't been doing anything at all, but just as soon as he opened his head and asked Emslie why Burkett was called out. there was a flare-up on Emslie's part and out Mac went." lumslie has been sore on me ever since last season, said McGraw. "He and I had a little difficulty, and he said he would get even. This was his first chance, and he took It, bringing a per sonal grudge into a game of baseball. If I had gone so far as to be put out for real kicking I wouldn't care a bit or say a word, but it is mean for an umpire to drag his grudges against a player into a game. SHARKEY MAY BLOCK FIGHT. Suggests Conditions Which Do Not Meet Jeffries' ApprovaL New York, June 5. Unless a compro mise can be quickly effected, a battle between Sharkey and Jeffries is just as remote as'ever. Sharkey, to the sur prise of everybody, has suggested sev eral strange changes In the clauses In the articles of agreement, and says that if his terms are not complied with he will not fight. Sharkey desires to split the purse.curtail the bout from twenty five to twenty rounds, wear bandages on his hands and break away clean with no hitting in the clinches. Tom O'Rourke, Sharkey's manager, says that when he made the match be tween the pair he did it with the under standing that Sharkey would agree to tight the champion on the same condi tions that governed their previous fight. National League Race. Tom Loftus' Orphans started In the week within hailing distance of second place in the pennant race of the National League. Boston left the west for home practically tail-enders. Boston and Chi cago are practically rubbing shoulders. The race tells a story of two teams. Chicago has now been in the east sev eral days and has found it a hard row to hoe. It met the Quakers and took just one out of the series. It started In by losing two gamea on Decoration Day, and the next day the inevitable happened and Chicago's infield went to pieces at a criti cal stage of the game. Boston's steady climblrtg has been as much of a feature as Chicago's slump. It started out worse than It ever did before, perhaps. Now it is back home, and the way the P.eaneaters are going through the rest of the bunch Is a caution. During m i-. me xveus met wuri rne same proposition and again the veterans won an extra inning game. What has happepned to Boston has also been true with the rest of the eastern teams. All of them with the exception of New York, have proved themselves su perior to the western teams, and, judging from the present forms, the only hope in the west for pennant honors must rest with St. Louis. Philadelphia is still away in the lead, but should Flick and La Joie stay out it will weaken the Quakers Immeasurably, and without doubt put them out of the race at the start. Without La Joie the Phillies are like a ship without a rudder. Brooklyn had a close shave in the west, but It holding its own at home. New York is now trailing the procession with Cincinnati. The Reds seem even at this early stage to be hopelessly out of it. Pittsburg has had a hard picking, but is pushing St. Louis for third position with some vigor and may go up higher. American League Kace. The greatest upset in the American League during the past week has been the terrific slide of the white stockings. After making better than the average rec ord on the road Comiskey's team returned home and celebrated the event by losing four straight to Kansas City, reckoned as one of the weakest in the league. Kansas City's victories over the white stockings put them in fourth place in the pennant race for a brief spell. The chances, however, are against the cow boys passing Chicago again this season. Manning has a good team, but the fact that the white stockings will be home for a month gives the fans the idea that Chi cago will be close to the top in a few days. Before the white stockings can get higher, Cleveland, Milwaukee and Indian apolis will have to be disposed "Of. In dianapolis has a commanding lead and is, in fact, playing a sensational game, but the hoosiers will now be on the road for some time, and a slump may be look ed for. Milwaukee will be at home, but it has- a more or less precarious hold, on second place, and there are only two or three games difference between the white stockings and the brewers. Minneapolis has been playing a fair ar ticle of ball during the week, and the mil lers v.'ill be on their own grounds for a while. Buffalo, although capable of put ting up a good article of ball, seems to suffer from some unknown cause. Rum erg of dissensions are not credited, and the bisons will probably pick up. Detroit is see-sawing witn tne oisons ior last Elace, but the tigers have taken the it in their teeth several times during the last few days and shown that the team la able to play good ball. Some one has figured out that all the teams will be near the .600 mark about July 4. Some Ball Notes. Over 65,000 pepople saw the league games on Decoration day. This brought the at tendance at the league games up to 600, 0i, or ahout $240,000 for the eight clubs. This, too, with twenty-three games post poned by rain, cold weather and fire. rne winning pitcners tnis season nave been Bernhard, McGinnity, . Donahue, Cheeboro, Scott, Dineen. Callahan. Car- rick and Kennedy. While Bernhard leads the bunch, closely followed oy McGinnity, he has been hit for nearly ten hits to a game, whHe McGinnity has held his oppo nents uown to less tnan eight nits to a game. The strength of the teams has a lot to do with the success of the pitchers. Speaking of Boston's chances after hav ing crossed bats with all the teams, Man ager fcieiee said: we must -nave some new players. Our boys fail to make good when stacked up against the real thing. Pretty fair ball will not do this season. Take St. Louis there is the fastest team we have played. I guess their catchers aren't dancing that ball down to second. That man Criger is throwing men out by yards, and McGraw and McGann are get ting in front of the ball in close games. I have seen no team this season as last as St. .Louis." Milwaukee Gets Dowd, Milwaukee, Wis., June 5. Connie Mack, of the Milwaukee baseball team, today purchased Tommy Dowd, of Chi cago, to play in the outfield. Second Baseman Henry Reitz, formerly of Pittsburg, notified Mack that he would not play with Milwaukee, having sign ed to play in the California league. NATIONAL LEAGUE. AT BROOKLYN.

It speaks well for Chamberlain's Cough Remedy when druggists use it in their own families In preference to any other. "I have sold Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy for the past five years with complete satisfaction to myself and customers." says Druggist J. Goldsmith, Van Etten, N. Y. "I have always' used it in my own family both for ordinary coughs and colds and for the cough following la grippe, and find it very efficacious." For Over-Work Weakens Your Kidneys. Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood. All the blood in your body passes through your kidneys once every three minutes. The kidneys are your blood purifiers, they fil ter out the waste or impurities in the blood. If they are sick or out of order, they fail to do their work. Pains, aches and rheu matism come from ex cess of uric acid in the blood, due to neglected kidney trouble. Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady heart beats, and makes one feel as though they had heart trouble, because the heart is over-working In pumping thick, kidney poisoned blood through veins and arteries. It used to be considered that only urinary troubles were to be traced to the kidneys, but now modern science proves that nearly all constitutional diseases have their begin ning in kidney trouble. If you are sick you can make no mistake by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild and the extraordinary effect of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy is soon realized. It stands the highest for its wonderful cures of the most distressing cases and is sold on its merits by all druggists in fifty cent and one-dollar siz es. You may have a sample Dottle by mail Home of swamo-Root free, also pamphlet telling you how to find out if you have kidney or bladder trouble. Mention this paper when vnung ur. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y. POTTERS DIVORCED. Bishop's Nephew and His Actress Wife Legally Separated. Newport, R. I., June 5. James Brown Potter, of Newport, has been granted an absolute divorce from his wife, Cora Urquhart Potter, with custody of his daughter.in the appellate division of the supreme court sitting here. The petition which Mr. Potter pre sented to the court prayed for a divorce alleging wilful desertion for a period of more than five years. In his deposition James Brown Pot ter testified that he was married to Mary Urquhart in New Orleans In 1877. They went to New York to live where a daughter was born in 1879. Tfley lived together happily apparently until 1S86, when Mrs. Potter, her daughter, mother and sister went abroad merely for the summer. Before going Mrs.Pot- ter spoke to her husband several times about adopting the stage professionally but was refused. When abroad the sub ject was renewed by correspondence, Mrs. Potter urging her husband to con sent without success. Then he saw a cable announcement that Mrs. Potter had signed with the Haymarket thea ter, London. He immediately cabled, her demanding that she cancel the en gagement. Then followed correspond ence by cable in which Mrs. Potter said she had set her heart on her art and would not comply, telling her husband that her name would be beloved from the Atlantic to the Pacific and he would be proud of her. He still insisted that she should keep off the stage. Mrs. Potter replied that she loved her art better then life and would not give it up. She said that these were not days of dark ages when women were slaves. In correspondence with Mr. Potter she said his family was nothing to her, she hated the very name of his people and that Mr. Potter's Uncle Henry (mean ing Bishop Potter) was all fuss and feathers, name and family pride. Their daughter remained with her mother un til the latter came to America, when Mr. Potter took her to Tuxedo. Mrs. Potter visited there to see her daughter, but was received only as a guest, not as mistress of the house. Again she saw I the daughter on the streets in New York some years later and would not have known her had it not been for a nurse who had been in the family since the birth of the child. During the ab sence from the family Mrs. Potter's let ters averaged one in two years. CLASS DAY AT K. U. Beautiful Ceremonies Mark Closing of Senior Course. Lawrence, June 5. The class day exer cises of the senior class of Kansas uni versity were held Monday. The class breakfast opened the programme and was served at 8 o'clock.

C. Wicks. A speech by the class president, H. P. Fones, closed the exercises. The class then repaired to the new chemistry building, where an ivy was planted near the main entrance to the main building, and a stone slab en graved "K . S. U '00," was placed to mark the spot, closing the exercises with the reading of the class Ivy poem by A. L. Goudy. Taking the place of the annual Phi Beta Kappa address, a Sigua Xi address was delivered last evening in university hall by Professor Edward L. Nichols, formerly of Kansas university, but now a member of the faculty of Cornell university at Ithaca, N. Y. They Stole Hides. Lawrence, June 5. Charles Perry, colored, and N.

IS KNOWN AS NO. 2,094. Cell Overlooks the Ball Room "Where Carter Danced Years Ago, When an Army Officer at the Post. On Ball Nights a Face Often Peers From Cell Window. Leavenworth.June 5. Oberlin M. Car ter, the man who stole more than a mil lion dollars from the United States the dashing.handsome captain and brilliant engineer the debonair man of the world, who was the toast of the women of 50 cities and towns, and the envy of as many men is draining the bitter dregs of the cup of humiliation which his dishonesty brewed. Shorn of the honors of his profession, his commission revoked forever, his former companions O. M. CARTER. Now Convict No. 2,094. forbidden to speak to him; stripped of his uniform of blue and clad in the rough garb of the convict, he has lost his identity, even, and is Known as jno, 2,094. He will spend the next five years behind the bars of the federal prison. By the irony of fate he is compelled to occupy a narrow cell in a prison which he designed and built, ana, worse stm the only window in this cell overlooks the ballroom and banquet hall where he led the dance and Indulged his epicur ean tastes while officer of the post a few years ago. Carter was considered the brightest man ever turned out by the nation's school for soldiers, and from boyhood fortune seemed to grudge him nothing that ambition could dictate. He was made a cadet at West Point by special appointment by President Hayes, after having tried unsuccessfully in tne regu lar way, and was a model student and soldier, completing the four years course with a higher average of scholar ship than had ever been obtained be fore, and his record has not been equal ed since. From the day that he graduated until the day that he was summarily ordered back from London to stand trial before court martial he seemed to have the ear of the war department, and was ad vanced rapidly in rank, and in the im portant character of the work intrusted to him Early in life he married the daughter of a millionaire. Thomas S. Westcott of New York.and his father-in-law's purse was at his disposal from that time on. Fortunately for her. his wife died be fore his sins found him out. Just before the discovery of his enormous pecula tions while he was military attache o? the American legation in London he was named one of the three members of the Nicaraguan commission, and there was hardly a man in the army who did not envy the distinctions showered up on him. This was Captain Oberlin M. Carter, U. g. A. Military prisoner No. 2,094 Is a vastly different person. The prison barber took him in hand within a few minutes after his arrival at Fort Leavenworth, and removed the gracefully curled mustache and waving locks which had contribu ted much to his distinguished appear ance. Then his hat, clothes, and shoes, each article made to order and of the finest material, were taken from him and he was given a suit of dark gray homespun with the figures 2,094 stamp ed in large red letters on the front and back of the coat, and each leg of the trousers, under garments of heavy cot ton stuff, rough shoes fastened with buckles, and a big straw hat. He was promptly assigned for duty as bookkeeper in- the factory depart ment of the penitentiary and works eight hours per day. He rises at 6 a. n. and must be dressed and have his cell ready within ten minutes. At 6:30 lie falle in line with murderers, thieves, in cendiaries, deserters, and criminals of every other class, and marches in to a breakfast consisting of hash, bread (without butter), and coffee. He may not speak at meals under any condition, and at no other time except when spo ken to, or in the discharge of duty. At 7 o'clock he marches out with the other prisoners and works until noon, when he sits down to another meal consisting of soup, boiled beef, potatoes and bread. Then he goes back to work till 5 p. m. when the supper bell rings and he sits down to stewed fruit, bread and coffee. By 9 o'clock he must be in bed, whether sleepy or not, and at that hour all the lights in the building are turned out. Each Friday afternoon he and forty nine others are marched to the bath room, in which are fifty tin tubs filled with warm water. Beside each tub is a cake of common yellow soap and a towel. At the word of command he must strip with the crowd and scrub his whole body with the sticky soap and be ready to dress and march out again when the word is given. Once in four weeks he may receive visitors, hut they will probably be few. Within a dozen rods of his cell are the homes of a number of army officers, who know him well, but to them Captain Oberlin M. Carter is dead, and any army offi cer of high or low rank who dared ox change one word with No. 2,094 would be court martialed and cashiered in short order. Like almost every noted criminal, Carter persists in declaring himself innocent of the charges upon which he was convicted. Despite the overwhelm t ins weight of evidence he cries; "I am ill 1 J I Vegetable Preparstionfar As-, similating itieFoodandBeguIa ling the Stomachs and Bowels of Promotes DigestionCheerfur nessandRest.Contains neither Opium,Morprtine norMineraL ISTOT JAB-C OTIC .

He has been given every opportunity to explain what he did wHh the vast sums of public money that were traced to his door, but has not done so. He simply declares that he did not steal the money and asks that his declaration be be lieved. With the prison door open to receive him he broke down, and terror took possession of his soul. He had seen enough of army prisons to know and appreciate the horrors of the convict's life. Every instinct of his nature re belled against the idea of being caged for five years with a herd of common criminals, and for a few days the doc tors feared he would suffer nervous collapse. Then his pride reasserted itself. If he had to be a convict he would, at least, show the world that he was still a man. He would let his enemies see the kind of stuff he was made of and make his friends believe that he was a persecu ted hero. So when the time came for him to leave Castle William and start to Fort Leavenworth he surprised every one who saw him with a cheery smile and a bearing that was anything but dejected. When he was ushered into the war den's office at the old fort there was another breakdown, but it was only for a few moments. The warden knew the thoughts that must have come to him with overwhelming force. His comment was that "2094 took his medicine like a man." Since he has become a part of the great penal machine Carter has had lit tle to say to the few visitors who have chanced to stop before his cell door. He has stoutly declined to discuss his case and has gone about his work with ap parent interest and zeal. The prison guard who patrols the wall on which the window of cell No. 094 looks says that on one or two occasions, when festivities were in progress in the post ballroom he has seen a ghostlike face pressed against the bars as late as 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning; and the inside guard declares that on these oc casions the prisoner has paced the floor all night. But what his imprisonment means to him what haunting memories and vain regrets come to drive sleep away how it feels to be shunned by his fellows and driven to and fro at the point of a loaded musket No. 2094 has declined to say; and who but he can tell. CHASE COUNTY STONE. A Good-Natured Dispute as to Who Furnishes Material For Con- , vention HalL Cottonwood Falls, June 5. A para graph from Cottonwood Falls appeared in the State Journal of May 31 as fol lows: "Mr. P. J. Norton, of the firm of Retager & Norton, is furnishing this dressed stone for the Kansas City con vention hall. He has gotten out two rush orders and now has another larger one. He was personally acquainted with F. K. Hill, the chief architect, and so brought this big advertisement to Chase county. Mr. Norton has the only planer here required to dress the stone The Chase County Stone company only furnished the rough stone. Give honor to whom honor is due. "A STONEMAN." The above Is a mistake, the fact of the matter is that all except two car load of the stone which was shipped to the Convention hall was rough stone and shipped by the Chase County Stone campany, and was sawed and cut at the Bremmer Cut Stone company's plant in Kansas City, these people being the building contractors. Furthermore there is no planed stone being used in this building it all being either sawed or hand-worked. The Chase County Stone company have to date shipped 22 cars of stone to this work and are shipping two cars per day until the contract is com pleted, (the stone man) if such he is, speaking of the advertisement to Chase county should know that this was let to the lowest bidder, the Chase County Stone company being the one that se cured it; also that during the year 1899 they shipped out of their Cottonwood Falls quarry alone 449 cars of stone w hich went a long ways towards adver tising the stone industry of the county, this amount being more than any other two quarries together shipped during the same period.
