Loiik, if he is in need of sym pathy. The general impression ia that there was very little in it for the southern delegate this time. The attention of the country is called to the fact that another effort to lose Mr. Addieks has failed. The , Chinese situation is making prominent the fact that we just got hold of the Philippines in time. The trusts have not complained of any bruised spots since the adjourn ment of the Philadelphia convention. It now looks as though the only thing needed to restore peace in the Philip pines was to get Otis out of the islands. Gen. Grosvenor is so mad about the nomination of Roosevelt that he has not yet submitted any figures on the re sult of the election. Russia has a decided advantage over ' Enplane! and the United States in China owing to the fact that she has no other business of importance on hand. If Roosevelt Fhould prove as indis pensable to his party in 1904 as he ap pears to be in 1900, the nomination for president should come as easily as did McKinley's. Chicago Record: The Republicans will modestly accept credit for the Kansas wheat crop and charge the fail ure in Dakota to the threatened free silver agitation. It seems odd now that nobody thought of Otis as a candidate for vice presi dent. lie possesses two lmiwrtant qualifications, being both a war hero and a New Yorker. BURTON NOT APPRECIATED. J. It. Burton is a unique figure in western politics. Brilliant without a doubt he has nearly all the elements that go to make up a successful politic ian. There never was a human being who could face defeat with as little dis composure. There never was a politic ian who availed himself of every oppor tunity to keep himself before the public with such persistent success. No one ever had warmer friends among the so called "fixers" than Mr. Burton. But Mr.Burton evidently "missed fire" at Philadelphia. For weeks he and his friends labored for the honor of having him chosen as one of the orators to make a speech on the floor of the con vention nominating or seconding the nomination of President McKinley but the plan failed. The delegation went to Philadelphia and Mr. Burton soon discovered the trend of things and jumped into the Roosevelt wagon with a flourish that was heard from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Then he decided that he had sufficiently impressed himself upon the managers of the party and his press agent an nounced that Mr. Burton would make the speech upon the floor of the conven tion nominating Governor Roosevelt. Every one in Kansas was interested but especially were those who are trying to help him into a seat in the United States senate. The Burton personality had im pressed itself upon Mark Hanna and the rest it meant success for his Cause in Kansas. The time for the nomination of Gov ernor Roosevelt arrived and Mr. Burton was overlooked. It was not his fault that he was not even allowed to second the nomination of the New York man. The only reference to the man from Kansas was a mention of the fact that he pinned a sunflower on Governor Roosevelt's coat and the vice presiden tial nominee probably did not thank him for that. The managers of the Republican par ty evidently failed to appreciate Mr. Burton. He should take a few lessons from Gen. Frederick J. Funston before he again attempts to force himself into public notice. Governor Altseld is about to retire from politics, so he says. If he carries out his threat the Republicans will be deprived of the use of one of their hitherto strong arguments against the opposition. Ferdinand W. Peck put in so much time on the ocean, that should have been devoted to American interests at the Paris exposition, that the United States pavilion is pronounced a disgrace to the country. We are shipping gold in considerable quantity to Germany, and the New York bankers make a profit on such shipments of $500 for every million sent. The New York banks have loaned to German banks some $15,000,000 up to this date this season. According to this Interest rates are higher in Berlin than in the United States. CUT THE WEEDS. One of the methods by which public highways and streets in the city might be improved is by mowing the weeds which grow up by the side of the roads There are many residence streets in the city and public highways in the county now lined on either side by weeds rang ing from one foot to six or seven feet in huight. These weeds are permitted to so to seed, and the result in the succeeding year is shown by the acres of A-eeds which grow up in adjoining fields. The only places in the city where weeds do not grow in the street is where the pavement extends from curb to curb. The people of Topeka once de r.ounced ex-Governor Leedy because h stated in the senate in a heated speech that "weeds would grow on Kansas avenue." Had he made the general "harge that weeds grow in residence streets, unpaved, the ex-governor could come to Topeka every summer and prove what he said to lie a fact. Seriously considered the weed propo sition is one which deserves more at tention than it receives. If the road overseers and street commissioners would first stop the dumping of gar bage on side streets and would then en force the weed and hedge, laws the city and county could be greatly improved in appearance without agitation con cerning expense and "useless outlays." cubic feet. As an evidence of good faith he offered to put up a cash bond of $1,000. With practically no delay the council accepted Mr. Faulkner's evi dence of good faith and granted him the franchise. The result has been the or ganization of the Topeka Federal Heat, Light and Power company. Mr. Faulkner is now superintending the construction of a plant at a big manufacturing establishment in foouth Bend, Ind. This will be completed and in operation by the middle of July, and will serve as a practical demonstration of the new method. Mr. Faulkner states that the financing of the Topeka plant will then be completed and ground broken by September I. A later proposition made by Mr. Faulk ner is to the effect that if 3,000 contracts can be received, gas for lighting and cooking will be furnished for 90 cents instead of $1. About 2,000 contracts were secured some time ago in a can vass of the city. DOCTORS IN NEW ORLEANS. The American Medical association has decided to hold ft meeting in New Or leans in January. The members have arrived at this decision because the doc tors in the south have raised an objec tion to holding every session of the as sociation in the north, it having been years since the American Medical asso ciation met in the southern states. It is right that the doctors should go south and it is right that they should go in January. If they go there during any but the winter months they will always regret it. An open sewer is not inviting even in the winter months but in the summer it might throw the doc tors into spasms. The many advantages of the city will be pointed out to the visitors and they will be treated W'ell so long as they are visitors, but they should be careful and not allow themselves to be inveigled into becoming residents for the story then changes. New Orleans is a splendid place to visit in the winter if the visitor has padlocks on his pocket and a bill of health in his hand. He should not for get the bill of health, especially if he has a pimple on his face. Last winter those "whole-hearted" people picked up a man who looked sick and put him in the pest house with a lot of smallpox patients. He finally got out and proved to be a wealthy eastern man who had never had the smallpox but did have a large, well developed bump of revenge. He brought suit against the city for $13,000 damages. They do not consider it a crime to rob a tourist in New Orleans and the hack drivers take especial delight in "holding up" the unwary. New Orleans is a nice place to visit but it will not bear a year's acquaintance. press their disapproval of you, they are treating you worse than a stranger. "I don't enjoy my meals any more," an old fellow said today; "I ate up all the good things twenty-five years ago." If you do your duty, as your friends interpret it,' you become terribly in dignant every time anything is eaiiJ against th-'m. An Atchison woman, who has been married three times, will shortly try it a fourth time. Marrying four times is next door to being talked about. "I can't see how you can shoot an innocent little dove," a girl said to her guilty brother. "I just aim at it," the boy replied, "and pull the trigger." A girl child will believe longer than a boy child that eating the crusts will make the hair curl, and this credulity is characteristic as she grows older. Every girl likes to have it said of her that she "eats as daintily as a bird," but somehow we always remem ber that a bird eats live worms, and it doesn't sound so nice. An Atchison woman lately gave a fly party: instead of asking her guests to play a fool game, she asked them to assist her in chasing the tiies out for the summer, after which they helped her put in the screens. POINTED PARAGRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. An unsigned will is a deed without a name. A babe in arms is worth two armed with toy pistols. Good flannels and good soldiers never shrink from duty. The remedy of tomorrow is too late for the evil of today. The lawyer's acquaintance with a client is usually a brief one. The woman who marries for a home pays the highest market price for it. The emptiness of things here below is most keenly felt about dinner time. According to an old bachelor female suffrage is caused by a scarcity of hus bands. It is policy for little birds in their nest to agree; otherwise they might fall out. The comfort derived from the arious walks of life depends on the condition of the feet. Many a fool has sense enough to get a good wife, but hasn't sense enough to know it. A believer in the faith cure says that the paths that lead to an untimely grave are allopath and homeopath. The average young man is always ready to embrace an opportunity when it comes along in the guise of a pretty girl.

The waterworks question has' again pprung into prominence. It would be well for the people who have the in terests of the city at heart to lae wide nwake. The question was discussed by the Commercial lul less than a week apo, and every prominent opponent of municipal ownership of the water plant was present. A few of the advocates of city ownership were present, but the antis outnumbered them two to one. Edward Wilder, who admitted that he is -opposed to municipal ownership, said that he would help to Institute injunc tion proceedings if the city council persisted in its purpose of building a new water plant. He went farther than any of the rest. The question of municipal ownership of the water plant has been settled, and so far as "the records show" all the people of Topeka are in favor of the ownership of the water plant by the citv. There is no use to harrow lip the old question or to thresh over old straw. The only question now be fore the city is how a water plant may be best secured, by purchase of the present plant for a reasonable sum or the building of a r.ew one. The Commercial club is an excellent organization, composed of representa tives of the business interests of the city and the club can do much to help the city council. The council i3 composed of men who are trying to do their duty. l'i every move in the waterworks con troversy the council has reflected the Sentiments of the people of Topeka, and the members of the Commercial club fhould remember this in discussing the .'.! .

The following is from the New York Mail and Express: The young women who constitute the Idle wild club, of Ellis county, Kansas, have set an example of industry and practical common eense from Which the calamity howler will shrink in terror. The lack of hands to harvest the enor mous wheat crop is so urgent that these energetic women, acting as a body. have offered their services to the neighbor ing farmers, and scores of them, clad in male attire, are now at work in tne grain fields. Ellis county is one of the richest agricultural communities of Kansas, and we may infer from this helpful co-operation of its daughters that it is also one of the most progres sive and intelligent. We submit that the members of the Idlewild club have given a new and incontrovertible reason for the existence of women s clubs. New York papers continue to gobble up these delightful bits of fiction about Kansas. The young ladies of Ellis county could do such a thing if neces sary but fortunately it has not been necessary. WILL, TOPEKA GET DOLLAR GAS The announcement that work on To- peka's new gas plant would be started by September 1 made by W. J. Faulk ner when in this city recently should be, and undoubtedly is, good news to the majority of Topeka people. Not only are the present consumers of gas interested in this matter, but also the many who are ready to become con sumers as soon as the product can be obtained at reasonable rates. The present gas company has been charging exorbitant rates for gas when compared with the rates charged in other places, for a number of years. General dissatisfaction among consum ers and the efforts of the press finally forced the matter before the city coun cil, and after much discussion and cor respondence a promise was exacted from the company for the reduction of rates inside of 12 months. That was over two years ago. The company ex plained that it would be possible to give Topeka people cheaper gas because of extensive improvements planned for the plant here, and named 12 months as the period necessary to complete the betterments. However, the 12 months passed by without any change in the rates on gas, and when the council again took up the matter several months later the promise of the com pany was still unfulfilled. The im provements had in the meantime been made. It was about this time that Mr. Faulkner appeared on the scene. As the representative of a new process of gas production he told the city council, that he would organize a company, put up an extensive plant in this city, and furnish gas for lighting and cooking purposes as low as $1 per thousand WHY ROOSEVELT WAS NAMED. The Republican party in convention in Philadelphia renominated Mr. Mc Kir.ley for president and named the brilliant New York governor, Theodore Roosevelt, for the vice presidency. For more than two years no other tame has been mentioned in connec tion with the presidency save that of the present incumbent. , But for the second place on the ticket there were a baker's dozen of candidates. But always in the foreground, sometimes in a smiling mood, oftimes impatient, loomed up the shadowgrauh of the hero of San Juan hill, with the cunning of Piatt and Quay abetting it. Dolliver's oratory, Long's navy management rec ord and the recognized ability of Bliss to secure funds were hurled asainst the Rough Rider's boom, but in vain. As well might the angry seas thunder E gainst immovable St. Helena. All the power of the administration, used as only the adroit M. A. Hanna could use It, was thrown out to check the drift against Roosevelt, but in vain. The western delegates became enthused early with the idea that he was the man the Republicans needed to carry New York, and no glittering promises of patronage could lure them away to an administration candidate. Fresh in the memory of Senator Matthew Stanley Quay is the vote against his return to the United States senate cast by Senator Manna. Mr. Quay, be it remembered, never forgets, and so when the opportunity came to get even he dug up his unseen hatchet. For some reason, perhaps because of Roosevelt's boldness and popularitV with the mass of delegates, the Ohio leader was against New York's gov ernor becoming a running mate for Mr. McKinley. This fact soon crept out at the Philadelphia convention. Im mediately Pennsylvania came out for the New Yorker the first state to start his boom. And hand in glove with Quay stood Piatt, always the enemy of Hanna, with 76 votes for the Rough Rider when needed. It is con ceded that Mr. Roosevelt, looking through the mist of years to come, can see the Republican nomination for presi dent in 3004. That is why he tarr'ed long before giving his consent to take the vice presidential nomination, which has been the burial ground of so many presidential hopes. The way to the White House seemed to "Teddy" to lead, via the governor's onice at Albany, but Piatt and many corporations were against a second term for Mr. Roosevelt and threatened his defeat if nominated, and this, per haps, was the greatest factor that caused Mr. Roosevelt to weaken not w ithstanding a previous announcemen that under no circumstances would he accept a nomination at Philadelphia. To an engaged couple wedded life ap pears to be all sunshine but to a mar ried couple it looks suspiciously like moonshine at times. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record. Pointed remarks are sometimes blunt. It isn't always the man who stands off a gang of desperadoes or captures a couple of well armed safe blowers that is the bravest. It does not always fol low that a hero is made by the crack-of fire arms and the smell of powder smoke. There is a man on the police force in Topeka who braved death to aid a suf ferer when others refused their help from fear. He did his duty and he came nearer death than any man on the force. The officer is Frank Hendricks. During the worst of the smallpox ep idemic he was on the Smoky Row beat. The disease raged on the row. When the monthly assignment of officers was made Hendricks was assigned to the worst beat. "Are you afraid of the row?" asked the chief. "No, I guess not," was the answer. "All right." Hendricks went on the beat. He had no fear for himself but he dreaded car rying the germs of the disease to his wife and child. He stuck to his post Modesty is sometimes name for deceit. only another Some men are too busy making money to find time to spend it. Hoax seams?" 'Does Joax- a dressmaker "It seems so."

A man may make his mark in the world without making it a dollar mark. The average woman is not half as much afraid of gossip as she is of a mouse. Speaking of politics, a downtown parrot swallowed a watch the other day, and now the watch in Polly ticks.

BOOK NOTES. How to Recite." bv F. Townsend Southwick. Price. $1.0a Published by American Book Co., New York and Chicago. This new book furnishes excellent In structions in speaking, together with the representative selections rrom tne oest English and American literature. Teach ers will be much delighted with the com prehensive nature ot tne worK. since it contains extracts eminently suitable for school exercises and exhibition purposes. The book Is divided into two parts: Part I., giving an outline of technique, which will guide the student and enable bim to speak correctly and forcibly. Part II. contains miscellaneous selections which are interspersed- with those ot a colloquial and humorous nature. This book gives a splendid collection of pieces for declamation which are certain to prove popular with both speaker and author. (Through the Kellam Book and Stationery Co.) Doubleday & McClure, New York, have just brought out a splendid book upon birds, entitled "Bird Homes." It is by A. Radcliffe Dugmore. Being a popular price. $2.0o, it should become popular. The book gives the account of the nests, eggs, and breeding habits of the land birds that nest in the eastern United States, and this is the first book that has treated upon this fascinating subject for the gen eral reader, and the book is certainty a revelation of bird "personality" in many ways. The book is particularly attrac tive and instructive for its color illustra tions, also the illustrations in black and white, all of which are made directly from the nests and birds by the author. The notes on bird photography and on the rear ing of ground birds, give the reader infor mation not attainable elsewhere and of great interest to nature-lovers and to students.

If he was sick he needed at tention. Hendricks notified the neigh bors. They all refused to help the un fortunate man. Then it was reported that "Blind Jesse" was not in his hovel but was out of his mind and wandering through the neighborhood. Hendricks started to find him.

"Hilda Wade," by Grant Allen. Price, $1.25. Published by G. P. Putnam's Sons. New York City. "Hilda Wade," the last pages of which were written by A. Conan Doyle in fultill ing the wishes of his life-long friend, is the last volume completed by Grant Al len before his death. The scenes of the story are laid in far separated localities, and there are intro- (lueeu tno same rascmating lntuvmuais with plenty of incident and adventure, which have gone to characterize the other writings of this author in different fields of fiction. Hilda "Wade is a voting: woman who studies medicine for the purpose of rehabilitating the memory of her father, who had gone to his grave as an accused murderer. She is thrown into close con tact with many and varied circtimstances with the real criminal, and finally, by the exercise of sheer force of will, brings about a confession of his guilt and jus tice to her dead father. Mr. Dovle has certainly taken up the thread of the story and completed it in the way that Mr. Al len would have done. "His Lordship's Leopard," bv David DwiKht Wells. Price $1.50. Published by Henry Holt & Co., $1.50. David Dwieht Wells is a fun-maker of acknowledged skill, and this is one of his writer, among vv lie, etc. ing in an alley. The dread disease small pox had broken out on him. He had fallen there too weak to move. Hendricks asked for assistance to carry the blind man to his home. No one would help. They were afraid. Hen dricks picked the unfortunate man up in his arms and carried him to his home and put him to bed. He called a physi cian and did all he could for the unfort unate. The officer knew what a risk he was running. A week or so later Hendricks was ta ken sick with smallpox. He weighed 223 pounds. He grew worse. The physician who attended him reported one day that Hendricks could not live through the night. He made the same report the next day and every day for a week. Then the sufferer began to mend. It was two months before he could leave the house and when he did he weighed 185 pounds. The terrible disease h,ad left its frightful marks for the man to carry through life. Chief Ramsey considered Hendricks one of the best officers on the force. It was not until he had been back on his beat a month that it was found how he caught the smallpox. He did not tell. Now the chief considers him the hero of the police force. There used to be a justice of the peace at Tecumseh who was the butt of many joke. Many a story is still told at his expense. The story is told of a case being tried before the justice which was rather lengthy. The judge had a field of pota toes that needed cultivating. He had to leave the field and take his place on the bench to hear the case. The prose cution introduced a room full of wit nesses and testimony enough to fill a good sized book. The introduction of evidence on the part of the prosecution required four days. All that time the weeds in the judge's potato patch were growing at a furious rate. Then it came time for the defense. "Your honor," said the lawyer for the defense. "I wish to enter a demurrer to the evidence on the grounds that a case has not been established. I don't think it is necessary for us to take up the time ot the court for the next eight days introducing eviuence. lhe demurrer is sustained," said the judge as he thought of those weeds growing unmolested for the next eight days. It was the eight day reference ' that did the work. The same justice was trying another case in the same court. He sat during the hearing looking out of the window: After the evidence for the prosecution had been introduced the lawyer for the defense arose and entered his demurrer. "This demurrershould be sustained and the case thrown out of court," said the lawyer. "It will be," said the judge and he grabbed the petition and threw it through the open window. An open car was coming from Gar field park a few days ago and every seat was taken. The car stopped to al low a colored woman and four small children to climb aboard. There was not a vacant seat but the woman climbed on just the same and stood her children up in front of a seat full of society young folks. The occu pants of the seat had to crowd over and make room for the woman and the pickaninnies stood up. "That's nerve," said one of the young men. "Well, rather." said the other. Then the woman picked up one of the pickaninnies and plumped it down in the lap of one of the young men. "Hold that, please suh," she said. The young man blushed and the rest of the party laughed. "And you hold that," said the woman planting another in the lap of one of the young ladies. Those who were not holding children laughed more than ever. "Here's one fer you," said the woman The Trickle Our Soda is too good. It costs too much to make it But we win after all; for although there's less profit on PURE ICE.
