A MINK FAHM.
From the Chicago Tribune. 1
K. JC. Harvey of Lake Mills, Wis., Is
the rounder of a. new and novel Indus

Harvey's specialty, and he is the first
man to attempt to domesticate the queer
rodents, whose beautiful furry coats
make such an important feature of the
Mr. Harv ey has only been in the mink
business for a. year, but ha3 found it not
only wonderfully engrossing, but highly
Jirofitable. The naimals hae lived and
thrived in captivity, his collection, having-
been constantly increased by the
birth of cubs and the capture of large
minks, and dealers have gladly ex
changed from the precarious and unre
liable supply furnished by trappers to
that of Mr. Harvey -whenever they re
The '"minkery," as Mr. Harvey calls
It, is thirty-four feet long and twenty
two wide, the yard being twelve by ten.
Surrounding the inclosure is a fence eix
feet high, and above th yard are
stretched planks to prevent the minks
from getting orut.
"The greatest difficulty about operat
ing a mink farm is to keep the animals
from escaping," said Mr. Harvey. "I
do not know of any animal whose care
would necessitate the taking of greater
jirecautions. This is because the mink
Is a climber as well as a digger; he can
scale the highest wall, or dig through
earth of any depth. Besides, he has a
great faculty for flattening himself. An
average mink is about four inches thick,
but can squeeze through a horizontal
crack only an inch wide. Consequently
all the boards of the house and fences
have to be joined carefully."

Barney Dreyfuss, of the Pittsburg club,

RUHLIN CHOOSES OFFICIALS.
Al Smith, Will Be Timekeeper and
Aiec xsrown a Second.
New York, Dec. 27. Several imoort.
ant details in the proposed fight be
tween Jim Jeffries and Gus Ruhlin were
clinched today. "'Biljy" Madden visited
Al fcmlth at the Gileey house, and the
latter returned the certified check of
$2,500 which was left with him as a
forfeit a few weeks ago when the bat
tle was first arranged. This was done
because the Bank of Cincinnati has
been named as final stakeholder and ac
cepted by both Jeffries and Ruhlin.
Madden will forward the money to Cin
cinnati today. Smith has also returned
to Jeffries the champion's forfeit. Smith
however will be identified with the com
ing affray, for Madden today selected
him as official timekeeper. There is no
doubt but that he will be Jeffries' choice
for the "boilermaker" and Smith axe
great friends. Alec Brown, will be one
of Ruhlin 3 seconds.
VARDON'S BIO PROFITS.
American Trip Is Said to Have Net.
ted the Golfer Nearly $10,000.
Chicago, Dee. 27. The Chronicle says
Harry Vardon sailed for England last
week on the steamship Majestic and,
for the time being, at any rate, there
will be a dearth of Vardon exhibition
golf matches, which have been bo
marked a charcteristic of the present
It is undisputed that both Vardon and
his managers have been agreeably sur
prised at the cordiality of his reception
and the willingness of so many clubs to
pay the steep price of $2o0 which was
demanded for each appearance.
Just how much richer Vardon is from
the American appreciation of his mag
nificent golt is a problem that many
have attempted to solve, but Vardon's
manager, Charles S. Cox, has consistent
ly maintained a sphinx-like silence on
the subject. Vardon's personal, profits
probably amount to $10,000.
In Vardon's seventy-three matches he
met with eleven defeats. Nine of those
were against two opponents, while Ber
nard Nicholls was the only golfer who
beat the foreigner single-handed, and
he did that twice. . The first time was
on the Ormond links in Florida in Feb
ruary, and the second time was on the
Brea-Brun links, near Boston, in Sep
tember. OPPOSED FOOTBALL PLAYING.

The Notorious Klondike Finds
. Another Victim. , , .
An Unknown Han Is Badly
Beaten and Robbed.
THROWN BY THE ROAD
A Soldier Finds the Man Lying
His Memory Blurred and Unable
to Eelate Facts.
Seems to Be of Jewish Extrac
tion and Under Thirty.
Leavenworth, Dec. 27. Another man
has been slugged and robbed In the no
torious Klondike, near this city. How or
by whom the man was robbed and In
jured is a mystery. He was put on a
street car by an old veteran near the
Soldiers', home Christmas night. . Tit:
veteran had found the man in the road
near the Klondike.Comiuctor Rodenhaus
was in charge of the car. He did not
know ioiV seriously JJie, man was injur
ed. Although bleeding Heavily, ne sat
up in the car. .
Ticachiner th corner of Third and Del
aware streets, Rodenhaus helped the
man off the car. and on to the sidewalk.
Here two hospital stewards from the
fort who happened to.be passing saw
how seriously the man was hurt. They
took him- to Fritsche's drug store. On
the wav the inlured man talked inco
herently and said something about being
"touched" and cut. When the store was
reached the man fell senseless to the
floor. The patrol was sent for and he
was removed to the station.
The general supposition among the
police is that the man was slugged and
robbed in the Klondike after being made
helpless and sodden with drink. He had
nothing on his person to identify him. A
small memorandum book with a few
figures in it and a trunk check on the
Chicago and Great Western railroad
were all that was in his pockets. In ap
pearance the injured man seems to be a
Jew, about 28 years old and fairly well
The flesh on his nose had been laid
bare to the bone, from the end of the
nose nearly to the bridge. The shape of
the cut showed that it had been made
by a jagged instrument. Several stitch
es were taken in It and the injured mai
yelled and roared with pain. After the
operation he relapsed into a senseless
condition and did not revive for some
time. His memory was blurred and he
was unable to give an account of him
self or even tell hia name.
STEEL RANGE SWINDLER
Finds Several Easy Farmers in
Leavenworth, Dec. 27. Another victim
of the steel range swindlers has shown
up. This time it Is M. M. Gallagher'of
Springdale. Some months ago a smooth
looking and smoother talking man stop
ped at Gallagher's farm and wanted to
sell a steel range. He represented him
self as the agent for the National Steel
Range company, with headquarters at
The range was represented as a world
beater and was offered at the remarka
bly low price of $59. Not only this, but
a note was to be accepted for the i69
and this note was payable in Install
ments which were to extend over a per
iod of several years; ' , .
Gallagher jumped at the big bargain
offered and was soon the happy posses
sor of a range. But he was not happy
long. The range was. not exactly all
that It had been represented to be. It
was very particular as to what kind of
wood it was given to burn and often re
fused to burn at all.
All these minor difficulties were endur
ed patiently by Mr. Gallagher. But there
is a time when patience ceases to be
come a virtue. This time came to Gal
lagher last Saturday. On that day, an
agent, a different one by the way. called
on the man with the bargain and want
ed the note for $69 paid in full. Gallag
her's wrath was aroused and he told the
agent he d be blanked if he ever paid
the note. He had only agreed to pay ii
in several years and now the note was
presented and complete payment per
emiorily demanded. No, he'd be blanked
if he paid it.
The matter was finally compromised
the agent agreeing to surrender the note
to Gallagher If the latter would deliver
the range in Easton. This Gallagher did
yesterday and is now happy once more
Gallagher says he wasn't the only one
in his part of the country who was
duped by the steel range man. In fact,
he says he could name a dozen.

WASH SHUN GAH'S VISIT
Indian Chief Calls Upon Presi
Washington, J. C, Dec. 27. President
McKinley's visitors today included Wash
Shun Gah, the celebrated chief of the
Kansas tribe of Indians. He was in full
war paint, from his thoroughly smeared
fac? to his gray-colored moccasins and
fiery red shawl, but he was not in a bel
licose humor. He was, in fact, the best
natured and most talkative old Indian
who has been to visit "the great white
chief in many days.
He was so full of talk that he begged
to le allowed to make a speech to the
president In his pigeon English vocabu
lary. He was not allowed this pleasure,
bu: he shook hands with the president lr.
the most free and easy manner, extend
ing his right hand to the president in as
gay and cordial manner as a congres
sional candidate just before an election.
W ash Shun Gah has made two speech
es since he came to town Friday. Ore
was to Secretary Hitchcock of the inter
ior department and the other was to
Commissioner Jones. Wash Shun Gah's
speeches are better understood from his
suggestive shrug3 and gestures than
from his badly-mixed collection of
Secretary Gage went to the White
Hoiise while Wash Shun Gah was there.
and was introduced to the Kaw chief.
Th; interpreter explained to the chief
that Secretary Gage was the man who
had all the Indians' money. Wash's face
brightened. He patted Secretary Gage
on one shoulder and said: Me mi go
home till git moo."
Wash was accompanied to the White
House by Representative Charles Curtis
of Kansas, who is proud of the trace of
Indian blood in his veins. Others in the
party were Forest-cheau-teau, Acan
Poppan, "General" W. E. Handy, Wil
liam Handy, and O. A. Mitscher, all
members of the tribe except the last
named, who is the agent of the Osage
and Kansas Indians.
James F. Legate will arrive in Kan

PEOPLE HAVE A VOTE.
Members of . legislature Must
First Hear From Voters.
Meanwhile Thej Must Be Satis
fied With Salaries.
While the Republican politicians are
discussing proposed changes in the sal
aries of the state institutions.they might
discover how useless such talk is by tak
ing a look at the constitution of the
state. Under the present system of Jur
isptudence the courts hold that even
the new and gravely important mem
bers of the legislature can not be per
mitted to change the constitution, by
legislative enactment, to remedy defects
In the prevailing form of government
and the price which the people are ex
pected to pay for it.
Section 15 or article one, or the consti
"The officers mentioned shall at stated
times receive for their services a com
pensation to be established by law.
which shall neither be Increased or di
minished during the period for which
they shall have been elected."
KeDresentative Albert Sarbach of Hoi-
ton, a Republican, has also made himself
ridiculous by declaring that he will in
troduce a bill to increase the pay of the
legislators from $3 to J7 per day.
On this subject the constitution, sec
tion 3, article 2, says:
"The members of the legislature shall
receive as compensation for their ser
vices the sum of S3 for each day's actual
service at any regular or special session
and lu cents for each mile traveled by
the usual route in going to and return
ing from the place of meeting, but such
sum shall not in the aggregate exceed
1241 for each member, as per diem 0.1
lowance for the first session held under
this constitution nor more than $150 for
each session thereafter, nor more than
$90 for any special session."
Governor Stanley recently stated In a
public interview that he does not favor

A crowd of politicians in the Copelar.d
today were discussing the proposed in
crease of salary, some of them referring
the subject to L. S. Crum, retired judge
of the court of visitation, by grace of
the supreme court. "Squire" Crum, as
he is now officially known replied by
"Of course, I understood that I was
worth more to the state per month than
the salary I drew amounted to, but I al
ways felt that If I didn't want to hold
the job and get the pay I could resign
and let some man have the Job who
would be satisfied. Members of the leg
islature and state officers who want big
ger pay "
But the thrust which Crum had la
mind remained undelivered because the
group had deserted him and the oppor
tunity to chide them was lost.
