TRIED TO KILL COOLEY.
Uanager Clark of Pittsburg Complains
of Harsh Treatment.
Pittsburg, Ta., June 9. Manager
Fred Clarke of the Pittsburg team,
whose departure from the boys at Phil
adelphia caused some comment, arrived
hre this morning. He had a secret
conference with W. W. Kerr of the
Pittsburg club, and left this evening1
for a health resort. Clarke was not
too ick to kick at the harsh deal be
ing given western clubs in the east. He
said: '
"it seems that medals have been of
fered for each eastern player who will
disable a western man. I never saw
uch vicious work. Not only are the
players deep in dirty work, but man
agers and club owners are anxious to
get tangled up with players from the
went. Think of Colonel Rogers of the
Philadelphia wanting to tight! Why,
that gentleman sent me a formal chal
lenge to battle at his club house. I
laughed in his messenger's face. They
tried to kill Cooley in Philadelphia.
On the last play yesterday Thomas de
liberately ran into Dick and hurt him
So he could scarcely walk during the
evening. Tebeati told me he was also
having trouble keeping his men whole.
There will be some great scores to
settle when the eastern clubs make
their next western trip."

Base Ball Gossip.
The St. Louis elub wants more pitch

There are too many men now on the
staff. There is an abundance of good
men there now. The team is good
enough to win the pennant as it
if the umpires would only let it. Like
the hills of Tipperary, which were over
run with men enough to free Ireland if
tne Polls would but permit them, St,
Louis has men enough to win the pen

them. Too bad. Why not imitate Cin

have "Chaky," the rooter, take his
place? St. Louis Republic.

La Joie is out of favor with Philadel

Quakers since he stood La Joie off and
had a shade the best of the encounter.
The little right fielder gets a hand ev
ery time he comes to bat. It is said
that the hatchet has been buried by the
two players. But the crowd has not
entombed the tomahawk. It is laying
for La Joie. The big Frenchman will
find his road a thorny one for the rest
of the season. They are talking about
trading him, though he is the best
mechanical player in the league and,
up to his fight with Flick, one of the
most popular.

Bob Fitzsimmons is now offering to

Miss Elsie Fry Found atJarhalo
Near Leavenworth.
Wandered Into a Hotel at Noon
Friday.
APPEARS DEMENTED.
Unable to Give an Account of
Her Wanderings.
News From Every Section of the
State.
Leavenworth, June 9 Elsie Fry, who
disappeared from the home of her Bister,
Mrs. A. G. Sanderson, 1490 Liberty
street, last Monday ,has been found. She
is being cared for at Jarbalo, 16 miles
from Leavenworth, by a JMrs. Ecton,
who, with her husband, conducts the
village hotel. At least, a young woman
suffering from brain trouble, but who
remembers that her first name is Elsie
and that she had been in Kansas City,
and whose description corresponds with
that of the missing young lady, is there.
She wandered into the hotel Friday
noon and complained that her head hurt
her bo she could hardly stand the pain.
Mrs. Ecton took care of her and sent for
a physician, who gave her a sedati-e.
When the pain had subsided she said
she could remember that her first name
was Elsie and that it seemed she had
been in Kansas City recently. Conduc
tor Watson, of the Leavenworth & To
peka railroad, was told of the occur
rence, and he instructed Mrs. Ecton to
keep the young woman there 'and he
would make inquiry about her.
Conductor Watson notified Chief
Cranston, of the Leavenworth police,
who promptly telegraphed the Kansas
City police. Her description was also
recognized as that of a young woman
seen in Leavenworth last Tuesday.
On that day a good looking young
woman with pretty blue eyes and an
aoundance of rich blonde hair called
at the hair dressing establishment of
Mrs. E. Llgtner on Delaware street, to
whom she wanted to sell her hair. She
said she was alone in the world and
needed money and that personal ap
pearances did not count for much with
her. Mrs. Lightner would not consent
to be a party to such a sacrifice, but
instead helped her out of her own purse
and directed her to Mrs. William Lam
born, on Fifth avenue, for work. She
called on Mrs. Lamborn and after a
conversation was told to call on the
following day. This was the last seen
of her here. The only information she
gave about herself was that she had a
friend, a Mrs. Neish, at Hoze sta
tion. Conductor Watson held his train for
a few minutes this afternoon to give
Kansas City friends an opportunity to
catch the train.
The Leavenworth chief of police says
that a young woman looking extremely
tired and half sick, appeared in Jarbalo,
and went to the hotel where she sat
in the office for several hours without
speaking to anyone. She looked as
tnough she had walked several miles
and appeared to be in a half-demented
condition. The landlord of the hotel,
noticing her, asked her what she want
ed and received a reply that she just
wished to be left alone. In answer to
another question, she said that her
name was "Elsie," but refused to give
her last name. A doctor was sent for
and she was cared for at the hotel and
the chief of police of Leavenworth noti
fied. He immediately notified Chief
Hayes, of this city. Her father and A.
J. Saunderson, her brother-in-law, went
to Jarbalo last night.
HER VISIT TO MR. NORDTKE.
B. R. Nordyke, the manager of the
Pacific Express company, 18 West
Fifth street, Kansas City, has given
the only reliable information since Miss
Fry's disappearance last Monday. He
said that she called at his place of bus
iness and asked for work last Monday
afternoon. He told her that he had
nothing ta give her, but on account of
her being so pale and apparently re
fined, he became interested in her and
asked her a few questions, to each of
which she cheerfully responded. She
said that she had been teaching school
near Junction City and that she had
come to Kansas City to earn enough
money to pay for further education and
was stopping with a sister, Mrs. A. J.
Saunderson, 1490 Liberty street, of this
city. When she left his establishment,
she started toward Delaware street,
saying that she was going to her sis
ter's home. She did not take a Dela
ware street car. but went toward Main
street and Mr. Nordyke is of the opinion
that she took either a Main street or a
Fifth street car.
He did not see her again, but the fol
lowing day, Tuesday, J. E. Wright, a
clerk in Richards & Conover's hard
ware store, on Fifth street, saw her at
the corner of Fifth and Main streets.
Mr. Wright is sure that he was not
mistaken in the girl, as he went to
school with Miss Fry in Junction City.
He spoke to her, but she paid no at
tention to him. He is quite sure that
she heard him call and that she recog
niod him, but for some reason she did
not wish to let him know that she did.
Miss Fry is a prepossessing girl with
expressive blue eyes and a wealth of
blonde hair. She is very reiined and in
telligent. The day she left her sister's
house she said that she was going to a
store on Main street to change a hat
which her sister had bought for one of
her children. Mr. Saunderson told the
police that when Miss Fry arrived at
the house she had $70 in her pocket
book, but believes that she lsft it in
her trunk. He said that he did not'
wish to examine the trunk until he
was fully assured that his sister-in-law-was
demented or had neen lost. When
she was talking with Mr. Nordyke she
said that she had only $1.70 in iLer pos
session and it might have been that she
left the balance of her money in the
trunk and then forgot about it. A
groceryman living near Mrs. Saunder
son's place said yesterday that on Mon
day Miss Fry came into the tore and
made a small purchase and tendered a

SEATS FOR FARMERS.
Columbus Provides Places for Visitors
to Sit Sown.
Columbus, June 9. City Attorney Al.
F. Williams conceived the idea some
time ago that the people and especially
the farmers, should have some suitable
place to rest when they visited the city,'
and not be compelled to occupy the
stairways and other inconvenient places
for such purposes.
He proceeded to put his plans into
execution, and obtained permission
from the county -commissioners to place
seats on each side of the square, be
neath the shade trees just inside the
hitchrack. In company with Mort
Nichols he called upon the merchants
and business men and succeeded in
raising enough money with which to
place three seat3 on each side of the
square.
This will be a great convenience to
everybody and it seem strange, that the
plan was not carried out before. Peo
ple who attend the Saturday night band
concerts will find them very acceptable,
and in fact the seats will come in handy
upon all occasions.
MRS. GEO. W. MARTIN DEAD.
Wife of Secretary of Historical Society
Succumb to Paralysis.
Kansas City, June 9. Mrs. George W.
Martin, wife of the secretary of the
state historical society and editor of the
Kansas City, Kan., Gazette, died last
night at 11:60 o'clock. The cause of
death was paralysis. She was 55 years
of age and was born at Minerva, Col
umbian county, Ohio. March 16, 1S4S.
She was the daughter of Allen Coulson
and Catherine Myers, the former a
Quaker from Mercer county, Penn., and
the latter a Methodist from Virginia.
She came to Kansas with her parents in
April, 1857, landing at the old Wyan
dotte and moving by ox team to Potta
watomie county, settling a few miles
east of Manhattan.
Both parents died in 1859. She was
married December 20, 1S63. She bore
five children, two dying in infancy and
the remander still living. In her early
married life on the frontier she was
greatly interested in home missionaries
and was one of the original movers in
the organization of the Presbyterian
church in Junction City.
Her father was interested in the un
derground railroad through Ohio, and
among the early impressions of her
childhood was the occasional arrival of
numbers of black people in the morning
for breakfast, to be hidden during the
day and started again when darkness
came, on their way to Canada. Mrs. A.
U. Mussey, of Pottawatomie county, an
elder sister, is the only one of the family
left.
The funeral services were held this
morning at the family- residence. The
remains will be buried at Junction City,
Kan.

Charles Harrison, of Cawker City,
Writes of His Trials.
' From the Cawker City Record.
Mr. Chas. Harrison has received a
letter from his son Charles, written
March 28, the first for nearly four
months. Charlie is one of twenty-five
mounted scouts among- the fierce La

in good spirits and looks forward with
pleasure to coming home.

other trap. Two other pile-drivers
drifted away right by us and three more
