Glick obtained on the occasion of his recent visit to the Bryan ranch are believed to be of a sort which will not hatch until next year and even then will be dependent upon certain contingencies. The approaching campaign promises to be a clean one devoid of personal ities. For the past four years the lives of both candidates have been an open book to be read by any who eared to do. so. It would be hard to get anybody to believe aught against the morality jor integrity of either President McKin ley or Colonel Bryan. Under the head of "Financial Gossip" a writer in the Washington Mirror says of Santa Fe railway business and prospects: "I heard an expert on market condi tions say yesterday that he believed Atchison preferred will sell on a level with the high-priced grangers in the course of a few months, or at most be fore the end of 1901. His reason for this optimism has been all given In this column heretofore, In my own state ments regarding the excellent prospects of the Atchison railway and its securi ties. The business of the company, per mile, is already equal to that of many lines whose securities are selling at a much higher level. Its operating ex penses are being kept, down by rigid economy, and at the same time there has been no niggardness in keeping up the condition of the system. So much for the present conditions which have during the past year earned for the preferred stock about 10 per cent. In the future there is the Immense growth of the Pacific 'trade to look forward to. It does not require a prophetic imagina tion to enable one to see that this busi ness is to have the greatest and most rapid growth during the coming few years. The Atchison has only during the past six months placed Itself in the position to benefit fully by it." A REPUBLICAN VIEW OF BRYAN The Washington Post, which is Re publican in politics, pays the following handsome tribute to the character of William J. Bryan as a man, a citizen and a party leader: Mr. Bryan is the one Democrat alive who can develop the party's utmost strength this year. Not only do Demo crats give him their. Unreserved respect and confidence; they now recognise his absolute honesty and his magnificent, unswerving courage. With him as the leader all is not harmony, but without Jiim the Democratic party would be an Incoherent and heterogeneous mob. He does not, like Mr. Mitinley, appeal to the sentimental side of men. He does not, again like his distinguished antag onist, win personal affection. He is strenuous, dominant, compelling. He does not consult or seek advice or lean upon another. He is a captain, a com mander, a law unto himself. Four years ago he leaped from com parative obscurity to the leadership of a. party which Mr. Cleveland had prac tically wrecked. In the eyes of the country at large he seemed an accident the grotesque fruit of divided coun sels: the product of despair; the caprice of an idle and a hopeless mood. He was young; his political experience had been very brief; his record hinted at no (special brilliancy, and his achievements warranted, but very modest expectation for the future. Nevertheless, he mag netized ten thousand men assembled in the Chicago convention hall as, surely, no similar audience was ever magne tized before, and he did this less by any gift of rhetoric or trick of eloquence than by the overwhelming passion of his earnestness and the irresistible force of his convictions. He was not the evolution of a deep-laid scheme. He wag not the result of carefully contrived conspiracy. He was the spontaneous choice of every Democrat within hear ing of his ringing words within the in fluence of his tremendous personality. The astounding campaign which he conducted subsequently has no parallel in the chronicle of American politics. Almost unknown, backed by no party organization worthy of serious appraise ment; without money; abandoned by the Cleveland faction; ridiculed and misrepresented; fighting against the most desperate odds, including the Democratic administration, and all Its hirelings and beneficiaries, this youthful stranger from the far west brought out jSearly a million votes more than Cleve jstcd. with all his eastern millionaires hind him, had been able to summon to the polls four years before, and forced the Republican party to levy on every Gad's Hill in the land for its salvation. No one today affects to hold Mr. Bryan in contempt. No man at once Intelligent and honest ventures to dis miss him from the equation of 1900 as a fAQtQf (it small 6onseq,uences. Even the New Tork Sun, perhaps the most ardent and eager Republican organ in. the country, felt called upon, some weeks ago, to pay tribute to the man's con sistency and courage. Indeed, Mr. Bryan stands upon his own feet, a per fect specimen of physical, intellectual, and moral strength. He is no trimmer. He does not go to the people for assur ance and encouragement. He draws them to him anti he holds them by his unaided power. His face reveals his character. It is a face without soft ness and equally without cruelty. It is the face of a man who does not yield, who can not be tempted or cajoled the face of one who believes absolutely in himself the face of an enthusiast, a fanatic, If you will, put of a leader and a giant among men. GLOBE SIGHTS. -From the Atchison Globe. Some girls are -mighty snippy with, a little good looks. There Is more hugging In teaching a girl to swim than In waltzing. A pair of Atchison lovers are said to talk to each other like lovers In a book. The average woman doesn't look as well in a garment that la "clinging" as she imagines. An Atchison woman admitted today that she and her husband quarreled twice on their wedding trip. "6 Promise Me" Is inappropriate for weddings. What is needed, is a song entitled, "Now Keep Your Promises." Shortly after the wedding a woman discovers that "he" doesn't go to as great pains to make up a quarrel as he did before. , Whenever a preacher goes away on a vacation, some good old sister in his church remarks that the oevil never takes a rest There is always, some curiosity to know if the husband of the woman who keeps boarders kicks with, the rest of the boarders. A woman works hard cleaning up the house all day. and all the differ ence an unappreclative husband sees is that the sewing machine stands where the organ used to be. The people are talking of another young man who started on his way to commit suicide because of a love affair, but saw another woman on the way, took heart, and is himself again. The boys will laugh at this: A North Atchison woman put the cake so high on the shelf to keep it away from the boys that she fell off a chair get ting to It and sprained her ankle. "When a girl sings in the evening, the neifihbors are saying to each other, "Who ever told that girl she could sing?" By-the-by, who did tell her? Who tells the girts who get up at amateur concerts that they can sing? An Atchison woman Is keeping count. So far she has fed nine canary birds during the absence oftheir own ers on summer vacations, and has watched the unpacking of six tourist trunks, but all that was brought her was one souvenir spoon and a Chinese arrangement for scratching one's own back. An Atchison woman is called selfish for a very peculiar reason. She has buried her second husband beside the remains of her first husband, leaving space for her own grave between. In stead of putting him beside the body of his first wife. Two men, even in a cemetery lot, is considered more than the law allows. POINTED PARAGRAPH 3 From the Chicago News. Better make vour calls short than pose as a yawn maker. The high note of a song bird may be due to a soar throat. Give a pig plenty of milk and it will make a hog of itself. The hen is a liberal fowl; she gives a peck when she takes a grain. The more business the auctioneer picks up the more he knocks down. Many little sina are committed be cause they have high-sounding names. The average man believes in future punishment only for his neighbor. Some men are so stingy they refuse to smile except at the expense of others. An old bachelor says it is better to die for a woman than to live with some of them. It is an easy matter to follow ad vice that travels in the direction you are going. If you do not want your feelings in. jured cultivate due consideration for3 the feelings of others. Imitation may be the sincerest flat tery, but it is difficult to convince a girl that such is the case when she is presented with an imitation diamond- A woman can taik as sweet as peaches and cream to arother woman she hates while two men would en gage in a slugging match before they had exchanged a dozen words. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record It might be a good thing to send General Humidity out to China Some men never have any push until they are confronted by a saloon door. Tf time is money, and convicts do time, how is it that they do not became rich? "This sort of weather even makes me hot in the collar," remarked the glass of beer. It stands to reason that the woman who has no mind of her own can't make her children mind. A brigade of servant girls might do more in the warfare against China than a regiment of soldiers. Wigg "The queen of the Boogoloos is nearly eight feet tall." Wagg "Long may she reign!" Philadelphia is famous for hospital ity, but the stranger within our gates just now will -get a particularly warm reception. When a fellow is out in a boat with a pretty gill, and he never stops row ing, of course she can't catch the drift of his conversation. The man who kicks most vigorously when he gets behind a high bonnet in the theater is tick.ed to death when the same thing happens in church. Hoax "I've heard .of trained fleas, but here's an item in the paper about a man who has a mathematical ant." Joax "Well, It's the little things that count." The passionate lover had been plead ing his cause. She went to the piano. 'Some day, some day," she sang. "Do not torture me thus," he walled. Then he knew from the expression of her face tnat it was all up with him. Two Jokes met by the roadside. One was old and haggard. "I am the wife's pocket," it said; "nobody can find any thing in me." The other Joke was young and sprightly. "Do not despair," it said: "I am the husband's desk. Though still in my Infancy, I am in the same boat with you." Then . they parted sadly. NO MOKE CONTRACTS. Capital City Brick Company Has Output Provided For in Topeka. Mr, Willis Edson, of the Capital City Vitrified Brick company, in speaking of the ability of the plant to furnish brick for paving said: "We now have contracts to furnish brick for Mr. Ritchie to be used in the paving of the four blocks on Fillmore street, one on Taylor street and one on King street. These are the old contracts and will be furnished be fore September 1, probably by the mid dle of August. We are sending brick to Fillmore street now at the rate of 25,000 a day. "We also have the contract for fur nishing the brick for the sidewalks but it is impossible to tell just how much brick will be needed for that purpose. There will be 70,000 feet or sidewalk put down but the council has not decided how much of it is to be brick and how much stone. We are turning out brick for the sidewalk and If the entire 70,000 feet is laid with brick we will be able, in addition to the contracts already let, to turn out enough brick to pave four or five blocks before the first of the year." BIG INDEMNITY Which Chili is Collecting From Bo livia and Peru New Tork, July 10. A dispatch to the Herald from Lima, Peru, says: Garland's new pamphlet, treating of the war indemnity, collected by Chili from Peru and Bolivia since 1S79, has made a deep impression here. Figures are given to show that by 1935 Chili will have received for nitrate and Iodine from the Peruvian province of Tarapaca twenty-three hundred and fifty million Chilian dollars and from Bolivia six hundred and fifty million dollars. Thus the war indemnity paid to Chili will reach three thousand million dollars a greater sum than Francs paid to Ger many. CUBA'S CHARITY HOMES. Gen. Wood Names a Commission to Amalgamate and Reorganize Them. Havana. July 10. Eleven commissioners, one for each province and five for the is land at large, have been appointed by Governor General Wood to superintend the charity institutions of the island. At present these institutions are scattered and smaJl ones are in existence in many places. The Idea of the commission is to try and amalgamate the small institutions into two lurge homes which are to be estab lished in Havana, one for bovs and one for girls. These homes will be both re form and industrial schools where or phans and waifs will be tilted to earn their own living. After the children have received an education they will be sent out to work on the sugar estates and farms. AVhen these charities have been properly arranged it is believed that the funds will be ample for the purposes re quired. Over $14.0jO,OuO are now at the disposal of the commission. An agricultural home will also be estab lished. Millions in Pennies and Nickels. Washington. D. C, July 10. The direc tor of the mint, in answering an inquiry, tsates that they are $16,628,323 of 5 cent pieces and $9,962,892 of lc pieces outstand ing. This gives an idea of the enormous number of these little coins necessary to transact the business of the country. Since the coinage of these began the total number that have been coined is, of 5c pieces, $17,991,298; lc bronze. $10,072,316. While these coins are given as outstand ing, it is impossible for the mint bureau to estimate the number lost, destroyed, not in circulation, etc. To Formulate New Demands. St. Louis. July 10. Members of the street car men's union stated today that their executive committee, elected Mon day night, meeting in Walhalla hall this afternoon would elect a new grievance committee and that the latter committee would immediately formulate new de mands to cover all points at issue in the controversy as it now exists. Wright Compliments Census Bureau Milwaukee, Wis., July 10. The National Association of Labor commissioners con vened in annual session today and Presi dent Carroll 13. Wright presided. He complimented the census bureau and said one of the chief ends to be sought was a statistical basis for the present and fu ture in regard to the economic and in dustrial condition of the negro. A paper was read by Prof. T. K. Urdahl, of the Wisconsin university on "Labor in Colon ial Possessions." WELCOME WORDS TO WOMEN. Women who suffer with disorders pecu liar to their sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the advice of a physician of over thirty years' experience a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases of women. Bvery letter of this sort has the most careful consideration and is, of course, regarded as sacredly confidential. Many sensitively modest women write fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from telling to their local physician. The local physician is pretty sure to say that he can not do anything without ' an ezamina tion. " Dr. Pierce holds that these distaste ful examinations are generally needless, and that no woman, except in rare cases, should submit to them. Dr. Pierce's treatment will cure you right in the privacy of your own home. His "Favorite Prescription" has cured hundreds of thousands, some of them the worst imaginable cases. It is the only medicine of its kind that is the pro duct of a regularly graduated physician. Some unscrupulous medicine dealers may oner you a substitute. Don't take it. Don't trifle with vour health. Write to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buualo, N. X-t take n's advice and be well. Mrs. R. D. Mon fort, of Lebanon, Warren Co.. O., writes : " I drop vou a line this moraine to let vou know that 1 have received the Medical Adviser, and bow very much pleased I am with it. A crisp, new five dollar bill could not tempt me to part with it." On receipt of at one cent stamps, to pay cost of mailing only, we will send free to any address a paper-bound copy of Dr. Pieroe's great, iooo page book, "The Com mon Sense Medical Ad viser." Or, the same book bound in fine French cloth will be sent for to cents extra to pay the cost of this more handsome and more durable binding. Address World's Dispensary Medical Ass's, Buffalo, N. Y. nOilTil EARLIER. Republicans Give Queer Reason For Early Campaign. Say the Democratic Ticket is a Weak One. ATTACKS BEGIN AUG. 1. Originally Intended to Com mence September 1. Many Speakers to Be Turned Loose in Kansas. The fact that Governor Stanley will go into the state campaign a month earlier than was anticipated means that the Republican state committee has re cently decided to make a more extended and aggressive campaign than the managers contemplated at the begin ning of hostilities. There is an old adage which specifies "every man according to his notion" which accounts in a measure for the enthusiasm which has developed among tne .uepuDUcan managers since the Kansas City convention. The Republicans now claim that they could not have selected for immediate slaughter a ticket which would have been more certain to face defeat than the one named by the Democratic con ventlon. This is where the old adage works because there are plenty of men around on the prairies of Kansas who believe the contrary. But, the circum stances are sufficient, the Republicans Deneve, to give them much hope of suc cess. In fact, the feelings which find expression from the Republican man agers have passed the stage of hope and now border closely upon that more satisiying reeling of confidence. . The Republican managers confess to having some fears aa to the result in Kansas had Charles A. Towne been nominated for vice president. Now Chairman Albaugh thinks the Silver Republicans the Lincoln Republicans will not support Stevenson. Mr.Albaugh admits that sectionalism is nearly forgotten except in the south but he does not believe the men who comprise the majority of the Silver Re publican forces will take Mr. Stevenson. In Towne, the Republican managers claim, the silver forces had softie hope and confidence, but it is not believed by them, at least they will not admit, that the vice president of the Cleveland administration will poll the party strength. Therefore, the Republican state com mittee Is going into the campaign with renewed energy. Arrangements have been made for the governor to begin active work August 4. The governor is now scheduled to make a speech in the western part of the state on each of the first three days of August, and has been assigned to make three speeches on the fourth day of that month. In view of the fact that the commit tee has planned to plunge the governor into the campaign thus early, the gov ernor has decided to take a vacation at once. He had planned to go to Colo rado this week with a party of Wichita and Emporia people but some of them were unable to complete their arrange ments to get away and the departure of the whole party has been delayed until next week. This will cut down the rest which the governor proposed to take before beginning his active work for re election. The state committee has all along planned to begin the campaign of speech making September 1. But a recent arrangement is that the gover nor shall spend the month of August in the western part of the state making the long trips from point to point, spending the last two months of the campaign in the more populous counties of the eastern half of the state. September 1 the state committee will bring to the state the speakers from the east who will be assigned to the state by the national committee. From that date until the close of the cam paign the state will be busy hearing campaign orators of national and state reputation. The state officers, the can didates for senator, the members of the legislature and those who work for the "good of the cause" will, be put into the harness and they will keep hammering away until the campaign closes. "The Republican party in state and nation has this year better prospects for success than we have had foryears," said Chairman Albaugh to a State Jour nal reporter. "Everything is encourag ing and I firmly believe that the most important and overwhelming victory we have ever achieved awaits ua at the. polls." The chairman now spends nearly all of his time in Topeka and the plans of the campaign are being made every day. AMERICAS WHIST TOURNEY Chicago Defeats New York By a "Very Close Margin. Niagara Falls, N. T., July 10. Chi cago won the Brooklyn trophy by the closest score in the history of the Amer ican Whist league.

DICK TO RETIRE. Will No Longer Be Secretary of National Committee., ' Columbus. O.. Julv 10.

MacAr thur's dispatch to the war department is the first official admission of the pur pose of the administration to withdraw additional troops from the Philippines for the purpose of aiding In the suppres sion of the rebellious conditipns in China. Outside of the sailors and marines of Admiral Kempff's fleet, the only United States forces now in China are the 1,350 officers and men of the Ninth Infantry, which, according to press dispatches, arrived at Taku from Manila last Sat urday. The additional troops ordered to the scene from Manila, according to General MacArthur's dispatch, will add a little over 1,000 to that force. The reinforce ments consist of two battalions of four companies, each of the Fourteenth in fantry, aggregating about 900, and Cap tain Reiiley's battery of the artillery, numbering 138 men with six guns. The Third battalion of the Fourteenth in fantry is now in the United States, posted at Fort Brady and Fort Wayne. The Philippine reinforcements should arrive at Taku by the 20th instant. The transports used for this move ment are large freight boats and while somewhat slow are well adapted for the purpose. They will carry supplies and stores of all kinds sufficient for an army of 5.000 men fo three months. A depot of supplies will be estah lished at Taku and will be provided with everything necessary for the maintenance of the troops in active field service, including a well stored medical supply depot. General MacArthur's dispatch is In terpreted to mean that no more of the troops of his command can be wim- drawn at present without detriment to the service in the Philippines. It also shows that he was unable to send aa many troops to China as the war de partment evidently desired. This is shown by his statement that Taylor's battery of the Fourth artillery in Samar was not available for service in China, and by the further statement that it is impracticable to draw upon tne astn 39th and 29th volunteers, commanded respectively by Colonels Anderson, Bul- iard and Sargent. In response to his request he was urged by the secretary of war to transfer the troops In samar to the department of southern Luzon. FITZ AND RUHLIN. Sign For a Fight of Twenty-Five Rounds August 10.

The coroner's Jury called to investi gate the case of the body found in the Kaw river Sunday evening has not given a formal verdict containing the name. A search was made all day Mon day for clothing along the river bank but nothing was found which in any way would give a clue to the man's identity.

A few weeks ago Mayor Drew re ceived a circular letter from an em ployment agency in San Francisco stat ing that men were badly needed in Cal ifornia. The circular read: "The hay crops are burning up in the fields for want of help; the fruit will rot on the trees for want of labor to pick it. The great barley and corn crops will be hard to harvest. Trains tied up on great railroads and other contracts for want of help to drive them." Similar circulars were sent to city officials all over the country asking for-men. To day the mayor received a letter from the headquarters of the labor commit tee in San Francisco, containing the information that the men who sent out the circulars sould be in the peniten tiary; that there were laborers in plenty in the state; that the average wage was from $1.25 to (1.75 per day, and that laborers should be prevented from going to the state.

"The gun on the castle will pierce the tog better than all the other lights round." This was the assertion of the lookout man on the coast at Dover one thick night during the late meeting of the British association. In the experience of the old coast guardsman, who had kept watch on the same guards for many seasons, the flash of the light loaded evening gun outshone in hazy weather all other lights in the town. Ha had thought the matter out after his own fashion, and had come to the con elusion that by virtue of the explosion the Hash was flung toward the observer and on this account appeared brighter. While he was still speaking, the clock struck, and with service-like precision a dull flare opened out on the heights, fairly eclipsing for the moment any of the gas lamps, either single or massed for the town was illuminated that tried to penetrate the heavy night. Without entering into any considera tion of the old seaman's theory, we may state, aa an instructive commentary, that whrre the fog lay thickest the gas flames were utterly quenching the usu ally dazzling arc lamps of the electrio light company, which was In keenest competition that week with the older form of illumination in the town. The same fact has been Inferred, if not ir resistibly brought home, on occasions of grave moment. When the electric light wan first established . at Dun geness, the Trinity yacht Galatea went ashore close to the light, those on board being unable to see it. Again, in 1879, the Bast was wrecked cloe to the pow erful electric light at Lizard Point. Again, in 1892, the Eider went ashore within a short distance of the electric light of St. Catherine's Point, Isle of Wight; while the terrible calamity of the Drummond Castle took place in close proximity to the lectric light of Ushant, which, according to the evi dence of the survivors, could not even be glimpsed. Unquestionably a true fogr is largely impervious to the rays from the more refrangible end of the spectrum, and thus it will often be found in our Lon don streets that the old-fashioned and much abused yellow burning gas lamps will hang out a warning red beam in a dense gloom through which the ac tinic rays of the modern electric arc cannot penetrate at all.
