The climate and trap service report for Kansas for September issued by the weather bureau shows that every county received over an inch of rain, the aver age being six inches. The report is as follows: A warm, wet month. The mean tem perature of 70 4 degrees, is 1.1 degrees above the September normal, and has been exceeded but four times in the past 13 years; September. 1S97, with a mean of 74 degrees, and 18S9. with a mean of 65.4 degrees, being the extremes in that period. The temperature ranged above the normal during the first half of the month, but was below much of the time during the latter half. The means for the. month are above normal at all sta tions, exopot in the fxlwmp wnnhu'f- j ern counties, the greatest departures be- i and Manhattan, and 'i.l degrees de i lic-incy at Viroqua. I "The precipitation of .27 inches is 3.20 j inches apove the September average, ! arid is much the largest for that month ; on our records, the previous extremes i being 3.S5 inches in ISC'S and .72 of an inch in 1SSS; the current is above nor mal at all points, except in Wallace, Sherman and Cheyenne counties: in Elk, Woodson and Neosho, the rainfall is over 9 inches above, and in Wallace, 2S of an inch below normal. In the western half of the state and the north em tier of counties in the eastern half, nearly all of the rain Tor the month fell luring the passage of the storm from the Gulf on the 10th, 11th and 12th; in the ?asiorn half the greater part fell from Lhe L'Jd to the 2Sth. "The average precipitation for the state was 6.37 inches. The greatest local monthly amounts were 14 35 inches at Chanute, ia.41 inches at Toronto, 12.41 inches at Urenola. 12.07 inches at Fall River, and 11. r2 inches at Eureka: the least local monthly amount was .78 of an inch at Wallace. "The first week was very warm, the temperature averaging 10 degrees above rormal. and but little rain occurred in the state, except in the extreme north western counties, and in Morton, Barber, Sumner, Cow ley and Woodson. "Corn cured rapidly, too rapidly in some parts, causing it to shrink. Ap ples again dropped badly. Wheat sow ing began in some half dozen counties. Pastures began to show effects of the hot. dry weather. Haying continued In a few counties, and cutting of the third crop of alfalfa in some parts of the state and the fourth crop in others be 'gan. "The second week was much cooler, with heavy rair.s ever a large part of the state, though only a light rainfall occurred in the extreme eastern counties. Corn cutting was nearly finished and husking began. The improved condi tions checked the fall of apples, and greatly improved pastures and the late fodder crops. Wheat sowing became more general in the eastern counties, but w-as interfered with by wet weather in the central the latter part of the week. The dry ground absorbed so : much of the rains that stock water waa ' not materially replenished, though it was freshened. "The third week was cool and 'pleas : ant. the temperature being about nor mal in the southwestern counties and be i low over the test of the state. Fair to ; good rains fell in most of the counties 1 of the middle and eastern divisions, lit tle or none in the western. Corn was ' being cribbed or marketed in the south ! em counties. Wheat sowing became ' general, and the eariy sown was com ' ing up. showing a good stand. Apples ; improved; pastures were green: alfalfa i made a good growth: late forage crops were in very good condition. "The fourth week was very nearly j normal in temperature, with little or no : rain west of a line drawn frorri Wasn ' ington county to Morton, and the I ground thoroughly soaked east of that ! lire, stopping all field work for the week. I Wheat was up in all parts of the state, making a good stand. Corn was gen j eral'y considered beyond danger of ' frost, but much corn in the eastern coun j ties was damaged by the heavy rains and floods. Crass was as green as in sprints and the pastures were line. Apples were greatly improved." CHARGE OF INFANTICIDE. Placed Against Cleveland Man In New York. New TorTc, Oct. 17. Harry Howard Stewart, 2C years of age, of Cleveland, O., was arrested here today on a charge j of murder.

He was found ' working for the Metropolitan Life Insur ance company as a stenographer. He re fused information about his child. Iast night the detective bureau here received the following dispatch: "Arrest j on charge of murder. Harry Howard I Stewart. The body of child has been found.

CASTOR I A For Infants and Children. The Kind Ycu Haya Always Bought Bears the Signature o; DEADLY GASOLINE GAS. J. W. Krinker Nearly Loses His Life From Its Effect. J. W. Brinker, of North Topeka, had a narrow escape from suffocation by the fumes of gasoline gas Monday afternoon while cleaning a cistern at the home of Mr. Anderson, on North Monroe street. AVhile engaged in the work Mr. Brinker and his son Walter discovered that the roots of some trees had grown through the cement, causing the cistern to leak. They asked Mrs. Anderson for some gasoline, which they Intended to use in some way in destroying the roots. After securing the fluid Mr. Brinker went down in the cistern again. His son, however, did not immediately fol low him. Shortly afterwards, when he did start down, he spoke to his father, but receiving no answer became alarmed and called tor help: When the young man reached his father's side he found him unconscious. Fortunately the men had with them in the cistern a rope which they had used to pull up the dirt. This the son tied around his father's waist and he was drawn up to the fresh air, where after working with him some time he re gained consciousness, and aside from a feeling of numbness was all right. Even the short time the young man was in the cistern it was necessary for him to be helped out, as the gas had overpowered him. HEADQUARTERS OPENED. Anti-Nichols Republicans Heady For the Fray.

October la one of the best months In the year for marriage licenses and so far this month the probate judge has issued 39. The rrnmber issued in a year is about 5o0. lu June, October and Iecember the largest r umber are issued and the record ustinllv reaches about 100 for each of the three popular months. Just why June, Octrber and December should be the fav orite months for marriage the probate judge loes not know, but as there is a idee fee for each license, he is glad of the fact. DRUG STORES CAUTIOUS. Liquor Application Blanks Being Used More Freely. The drug store joints are being run in a more cautious manner since the recent raids. The application books are being used more freely. The druggists who have sold beer and allowed it to be drank in the store now require the purchasers to fill out a blank specifying the disease for which the beer is wanted. The druggists have to pay the probate judge a fee of a cent and a half for each blank filled out and 25 cents for the first book of blanks issued each month and five cents a book for all others. Next month's summary of the liquor sales, according to the per mits, will probably show an increase. YICKSBUIIG LAID UP. Sent Into the Dry Dock the Second Time. Boston, Oct. 17. The gunboat Vleksburg has been foated Into the dry dock at Charlestown navy yard for the second time within the past few days. The ship came here from Newport a few days ag: to fit out for service on the China sta tion. Soon after her arrival she was floated on to the blocks into the dock and. her linll was scraped and put in con dition for th service before her. The department of construction and repair had about finished its work of refitting the gunboat when an order came from Washington to place her in dock again and make a thorough examination of her propf-llor shafts. The officers were afraid to send a ship on such a long journey with no means of replacing broken parts of machinery unless sure she is all right. MUST BE ORDER. Policemen Assigned to Preserve Order at Parade Tonight. Chief Stahl has arranged for several policemen to preserve order on the line of march of the Republican parade to night.

The police will arrest anyone found throwing them tonight. Marshall's band has made ar rangements and will lead the parade. The Twenty-third regiment band will take part. Killed a Burglar. Wilkesbarre, Pa., October 17. John Hughes, postmaster at Cambra, near here, shot and killed a burglar who broke into the office this morning. There were two burglars and when Hughes fired they ran. Later one of them was found dead by the roadside. His identi ty is not known. WHISKY TRUST ROW. Stockholders Fall Out Over a Division of Rake Off. New York. Oct. 17. vice Chancellor Emory, at Newark, N. J., today granted an order restraining the holders of the syndicate stock of the Distilling com pany of America from voting that stock at the meeting to be held in Jersey City today. This syndicate stock amounts to over $200,000, and without it, the syndi cate which is composed of W. C. Whit ney, P. A. B. Widener and others, will not have the two-thirds necessary to carry through a proposal to reduce the capital stock of the company. According to the allegations of Dr. Philip Kreissl of Chicago the complain ant in the suit against the distilling company this stock came into the pos session of its holders by fraudulent methods. Dr. Kreissl claims that in the transfer of the stock of the five constit uent companies for the stock of the Dis tilling company of America a secret proni of $7,500,000 w as made. T0SUE hanna. Webster Daris Says Bribery Charges Must Be Prored. Washington, Oct. 17. The direct charge made by Senator Hanna in a public speech in Chicago that ex -Assistant Secretary of the Interior Webster Davis had accepted from the Boer gov ernment $125,000 to espouse its cause in the United States promises to make trouble for the great campaign boss. Mr. Davis is now on the hustings with Mr. Bryan, having pledged allegiance to him at the Kansas City convention. His friends here are advised that he will sue Senator Hanna and compel him to the proof in a court of justice. This charge of bribery, it seems, had origin in correspondence from the Transvaal by a correspondent named Douglass Story, and printed in a Lon don newspaper. The charges are quite specific, but no attention had been paid to them, and general impression being that under the unwritten alliance be tween England and the United States England had contributed this scandal to break Davis down and aid McKinley in his campaign fight. They are now taken notice of because Mr. Hanna stands the sponsor as in dorsing, the London publication. Just now Mr. Davis is with Mr. Bryan, in hia tour of New York, but no matter how the election may go he intends to force Hanna to the proof. He has already placed the matter in the hands of emi nent counsel for prosecution. THE HEAVIEST FOG. . Season's Record Was Broken This Morning. .

FFrom the New Ynrk.l The fall anglinff season f'T trout which ends on September 3", in Canada, has bcn one of the most ucce3ful ever known to anglers. Never before in ths Sepfni ber fly-fishing season, perhaps, have rhere been such numbers of American anglers in Canada. During the last ten or fifteen days extra cars have had to be added for their accommodation to nil southern bound trains. Gordon Burnham of New York." who has been fishing on the Triton and Nonantum club limits with George Hart and Messrs. Frisbie and John P. Elton of Waterbury. succeeded in taking quite a number of three-pound trout out of Lac des Passes. Mr. Hermance, of Williamstown. Pa., a few days later took fish out of the same lake weighing up to four and five pounds apiece. This even beats the record of A. N. Cheney. New York's Slate Fish cul turlsi, of a few years ago in Lac dts Passes. One angler who returned here st the be ginning of the week from the Ouiatch ouan River, brought with him three fish, weighing 5Vi pounds. 4Vs and 4 pounds. A few days previously, a boy, a sou of Mayor Parent of Wuebec. took at one cast three fish weighing ten pounds. The trip lets were 4. pounds, 3V and 2 pounds in weight. The smallest fish rose first, tak ing a dark Montreal fly, while the voung angler was playing his fish, the two re maining flies, a brown hackle and a Par machence Belle, were seized bv the two larger trout. They all fought' hard and it was more than a quarter of an hour before young Parent got his fish safely to net. At the Amabalish club on the Meta betchonan rivert a little to the south of Lake St. John, some rare fly-fishing, for trout has just been enjoyed by a party of Springfield anglers, including the presi dent of the club, ex-Senator E. S. Brewer, his son, Mr. Coates of Springfield, Mr. Cheney of Manchester, N. H., and others. Four and five pound trout have also fal len this week to the rods of a number of New England anglers at Commission er's Lake on the Nonantum club's limits. Among the most fortunate of thepe fisher men were R. D. Brown of New Haven, president of the club Mr. Thompson, treasurer, and H. Beck of New York. On the limits of the Metabetchonan club at Lake Kiskising the fish have not run so large this season, but have been ex tremely abundant, while in the outlet of the lake trout of from one to three pounds have risen freely among the lily pads. Good sport has been here enjoyed by Judge Kellog of Waterbury, a veteran angler of S6 years, who was" accompanied by hh daughter. Mrs. Chase. Some of the most remarkable fish stor ies of the season come from the preserves of the Tourilli F1h and Game club, sit uated north ot St. Raymond, on the line cf the Quebec and Lake St. John railway. A party cf Hartford anglers, consisting of A. L. Shipman, W. L. Huntington and A. N. Robinson, has taken brook trout there this month up to a1 pounds each, and also report the finding in an out-of-the-way lake of the California rainbuw trout. This is the first time this gamv western fish has been found so far east, in waters into which it has never been known to have been transplanted. Some of the waters of this territorv have long been known to contain specimens of the comparatively newly discovered Marston trout, of deep blood red color and ex tremely beautiful in both contour and color. AMERICA'S OPPORTUNITY. From the Saturday Evening Post. In this practical world there is nothing Quite so great as a great opportunity. During the past 12 months much has oc curred in England. More than 2JU.000 troops, the flower of British manhord, have been chasing Boers in South Africa, and have been causing ihe government to spend millions of dollars a day. and to lay the hand of taxation heavily upon the people. With the absence of part of England's working force and with the presence of the financial problem the sharp-witted American saw his chance. This has-happened not only in regard to the transportation problem in London, not only in respect to the charters for trolley lines in the other cities of England. Scot land and Wales, but also in respect to the building of large industries on Amer ican plnns and the profitable employment cf American capital. England made millions out of our Civil war and did not lose anything In our war with Spain. Now it is the turn of the United States. In round numbers we are now sending from our shores $4,000,000 worth of exports every day. Of this over Sl.OOJ.OjO per day is in manufactured goods. Take the increase by decades. The fig ures given are quoted from a statement from the treasury department: "In Ihko the exports of manufacturers averaged three and one-half millions per month: in 1S70 they were a little over five millions per month: In 1SM they were less than ten millions per month: in IsdO they were twelve and one-half millions per month; in lt9 they were twenty-eight millions per month," and in the tiscal year 1W) thirtv-slx million dollars per month." More than three-fourths of these expjrts go to Europe. In big things the country leads so mark edly that sometimes it hardly seems that It has any competition. In wealth it is at least 25 per cent ahead of any other na tion. In coal and other resources it has a paramountcy to borrow a word from our current politics which towers beau tifully. In the annual products of its manufactured industries it Is nearly 50 British Like Cheap Papers. From the London Daily Mail.l -The revolution which the half-penny newspaper has wrought in this country was one of the questions raised at the Library association's meeting held in Bris tol recentlv. Sir Edward Krye gave the presidential address and urged th' se who have the control of libraries to discourage the frivolous use of books and to stimu late effort in the pursuit of knowledge. During a discussion on the subject of lectures in public libraries, which are at present regulated by the act of parlia ment, it was urged that the time had come to liberate library authorities from the restrictions at present Imposed upon them. The half-penny newspaper topic was broached by Sir William Bailey of Salford. who said that in these days of cheap half-penny papers reading rooms might very well be dispensed with in pub lic libraries and their spaec utilized for lecture purposes. Bis experience showed that in many cases news rooms were the resort of men who went there with the oblect of rctding nothing but betting in telligence. Time. 2 a. m.
