Among all the exhibits of bread and
bread malting- at the Paris exposition the
one which interested me most was a fvs
tem of milling and baking combined. This
ystem has a double purpose: (1) To make
the flour more palatable and more nutri
tious than that made by the ordinary
roller mill: and (2) to make it immediately
before bakinpr, so as to secure for the loaf
a flour -which is absolutely fresh. It is
well known that all food substances whpn
ground to a tine powder have a tendency
to become oxidized. As is the case with
coffee, which is the best when freshlv
roasted, and freshly ground, so it s with,
cereal flour, which Is never so aromatic,
so palatable, or so nutritious as at the
moment when it is first made.
The Schweitzer system of milling and
bread making secures the two points men
tioned above. In Paris a mill and an at
tached bakrry on a somewhat larger scale
Illustrated the method which is employed
in supplying bread to a populous com
munity. Another installation was a form
of apparatus adapted for use on a farm
or in a small community. So perfect isH
tne milling system employed tnat tne
smallest mill, intended for use on a farm
nnd driven by hand, as a coffee mill would
be run,, makes flour identical in compo
sition with that made by the largest ma
chine. The Schweitzer system, in regard
to the milling operations, is a return to
the old system of millstones, with the ex
ception that corrugated steel grinders
lake the place of the millstones of the
olden days. These grinders are so accur
ately aii.iusted as to admit of the making
of the rinest flour, while avoiding actual
contact of the two grinding surfaces. The
simplicity of the apparatus, its cheapness
and the ease with which it can be in
stalled commend this system particularly
for domestic use and for the supply of
villages and small communities. Never
theless, it is capable of being operated
on an extensive scale, as is demonstrated
by the large establishment at La Viliette.

chase Some Likely Yearlings.
His Trainer Has Locate! Sev

Garry Hermann Entered In
Louisrille Derby April 29.
Fast Colt Is Now Being Sent
Fire Miles Daily.
Chicago, Dec. 29. Charles Head
Smith, owner of Garry Hermann, will
leave Bhortly after the flrst of the year
for Kentucky, where he goes to inspect
some promising: yearlinga that have
been located by Charles Hughes, his
trainer. Hughes has been ' traveling
around through the state all fall and
ha3 located some six or eight of what
he considers the best colts to be found
in the note,d blue-grass region, and he
has Bent word to his employer to come
and pass on the animals.
Smith has now only one horse that
he places any confidence in for next
year, and that is Garry Hermann.
Part of the Smith stable will be ship
ped to Kentucky today.
"I-intend to go down to Kentucky,"
said Mr. Smith, "as soon as I can get
away after the holidays. Trainer
Hughes has located six or eight year
lings down there that he says look very
promising and if they suit me after see
ing them I will very likely buy up some
of them. I would have gone down this
week, but my boy ia home for the holi
days and I didn't want to leave while
he was here. Everything ia very quiet
down in Kentucky and I guess the colts
will keep until I get there.
''I am going to ship Donald Bain to
Kentucky. Garry Hermann has been
entered in the Louisville Derby, to be
run April 29, and we will soon begin to
train him for the event. At present he
is being sent about five miles each day
to keep in condition and then turned out
in the paddock. I am looking forward
to a good season on the turf next year,
perhaps the most promising that we
have ever had in the west. The big
stakes given by the officials of "Wash
ington park will no doubt attract a good
many of the big horses of the east and
that will be a. stimulus to the racing in
this city."
Buys Choice Lots in City and Will
Erect a Flat Building:.
Chicago, Dec. 29. Tammy Ryan, for
merly of Syracuse, N. Y., but now a
landowner of Chicago, is not worrying
because the boxing game sereins to be
on a decline throughout the country.
Wily Thomas has been fighting for al
most 15 years, and those who know the
athlete's business ability and how much
purse money has fallen to his share in
this time have a fair idea as to his
wordly goods. Ryan, although not
miserly, is noted for his close dealing.
As a result he will probably retire from
active ring work in a year or sJ worth
close to the $50,000 mark. sl
Part of this money is invested rn east
ern real estate. Now Ryan is buying
boulevard lots in the vicinity, of Hum
boldt park. A recent purchase included
three corner lots on which Ryan is plan
ning to erect a modern apartment build
ing and play the landlord. Notwitn
standing the fortune that Ryan has
saved up to date, he is still after the
money in ring contests just as much as
before, and no purse is too small for him
to pick up. A good examp'e of this is
his match with Jack Beauscholte, whi'h
is to take place at Springfield, O., next
month. Ryan's opponent is a willing lo
cal boy, who cannot class with the pre
mier middle weight, but the latter fig
ures that the bout will draw a big crowd
as it will be the last at the Ohio town
for some time.
A Twenty Hound Bout Practically
Arranged Between the Two.
New York, Dec. 29. A 20 round bout
has been practically arranged this after
noon between Terry McGovern and"Kid"
Hroad.The fight will probably take place
at Hartford the w-eek of February 4.
Sam Harris, manager of McGovern,
wrote to Joe Humphries, stating a pref
erence for Broad as his next opponent.
Manager Macias, for Broad, said today
thai the match would be settled as soon
as articles were received bearing the sig
nature of Harris. A new club will hold
the bout. A name has not been chosen
yet, but Charles White will be referee,
Joe Humphries announcer and Danny
Maher timekeeper. Harris wrote to a
friend today that the probability of his
going to England depended largely upon
his consideration of offers from the Pa
cific coast for a bout next May.
Fire Commissioner Scannell Will Cam
paign His Fast Horse,
New York, Dec. 29. Fire Commission
er John T. Scannell, who bought The
Abbot at the Hamlin sale, repudiates the
doubts cast on the genuineness of the
transaction. He says: "I bought the
horse for myself, and paid for him with
my own check. My idea in buying him
is to make money with him, as you will
see next season, in case I do not sell
him. Of course. I'll sell if I get my price
but in ease I do not I. will use him for
exhibition purposes, and will have Mr.
Geers try to reach the two minute mark
with him. Possibly I may arrange a
series of match races with him."
Man Caught Stealing Declares He Is
Related to the Puglist
St. Joseph, Mich., Dec. 29. Patrick
Sharkey, first cousin and only cousin
to the world-renowned sailor pugilist,
Thomas Sharkey, now occupies a cell in
the county jail in this city. Sharkey
arrived in this city from Chicago a week
ago. There i3 no doubt of his relation
ship to the great fighter, because there
is a great facial resemblance and many
other evfflenoes which go to bear out
Patrick Sharkey's statement.
On Christmas Sharkey was caught
trying to remove an overcoat off a
dummy in front of a clothing store by
Samuel Danforth, a local grocervman.
Sharkey's arrest immediately followed.
He appeared in police court this morn
ing, sentenced to serve sixty days in the
county jail. While before the bar he
stated he was the only relative of Thos.
Sharkey residing in the United States.
Bicycle Pronounced a Necessary Arti
cle by British Jurist.
That a bicycle is a "necessary" was
shown by a case at the Birmingham
county court last week, says a British
naper. John Mr-Gauley, a 'cycle manu
facturer, sued William George Huggins
for the price of a bicycle and acces
The defense was that Huggins was a
minor when he entered into the con
tract, but plaintiff'ssolicitor.Mr. Duffeil
contended that the bicycle was a "nec
essary" suitable to his condition in life,
inasrnueb as he used it constantly in
sroinsr to and from his business.
His honor. Judge Whitehorne, held
that the defendant was clearly liable,
and gave judgment for the plaintiff, with
costs. ,
Western Association Meets.
Chicago. Dec. 29. At a meeting held
Friday in the Great Northern hotel, the
Western association of professional
baseball clubs was formed. No officers
were elected, this action being deferred
until next Wednesdays when an ad
journed meeting will be held in this
city. The members of tha association
so far determined upon are Kansas
City, Minneapolis, Detroit, Louisville,
Toledo. Eight clubs in all will comprise
the association, but those present at
the meeting declined to say what the
other cities would be. Maying that they
would be taken from o. list of half a
dozen which made application. The
iiimfs of these places were also kept
secret, but it is known that anions? the
number is Kockford, 111., St. Paul and
Grand Rapids.
To Train in the South.
Chicago, Dec. 29. In spite of the rule
adopted at the recent league meeting
abolishing spring training trips for Na
tional league clubs, the Chicago team
will spend a few weeks in the south be
fore the playing season begins. Hot
Springs or West Baden will be the
scene of the Orphans' preliminary work.
They will get together on April 1, and
will then have three weeks in which to
develop their "salary" arms and to get
into working trim for the first cham
pionship game, which will be played on
April 18.
Denies Fake Fight Story.
Buffalo, Dec. 29. "There is nothing in
Lansing's story," said Frank Erne. "I
never faked a fight in my life. That
part of the story about getting the
whole of the purse is a joke which Mc
Govern and his manager will appreciate.
I tried my best to beat McGovern, but
had been weakened too much in the
effort to get to 128 pounds, although
when I entered the ring I thought I
could win. Lansing's story is foolish."
Will Keep TannehilL
Pittsburg, Pa., Dec. 29. Treasurer W.
W. Kerr, of the Pittsburg club, was ask
ed regarding a report that the Pirate
management had offered Jesse Tanne
hill for Pitcher Scott, of Cincinnati.
"There's nothing in that," Mr. Kerr
said. "We made no such offer. We have
no notion of parting with Tannehill's
services. This is like the story from St.
Louis that we are trying to sell the star.
He is not for sale and will not be un
less something extraordinary should
turn up. This isn't likely."
To Stop Fake Fighting.
Paterson, N. J., Dec. 29. Chief of Po
lice Graul issued an order today prohib
iting the holding of boxing bouts in this
city in future. The chief's order is be
lieved to be a result of the outcome of
the bout last night before the Passiac
County Athletic club between "Myster
ious Billy" Smith and "Young" Mahoniy
of Philadelphia. The audience was much
dissatisfied because the tame afflair
was declared no contest.
Milt Young Sells Cayuga Colt.
Lexington, Ky., Dec 29. Col. Milton
Young, of McGrathiana farm, has sold
to T. P. Hayes the fast yearling colt by
Cayuga, out of imp. Chalice, for $1,50.

over the Kentucky association track in
:23 3-5, with 109 pounds up. Early in the

In his presentation speech he referred

Chanute's Woman Barber and
an Operator Elope.
Had Known Each Other Less
Than a Month.
Mrs. Coffman's Husband Is a
Santa Fe Trainman.
Payne Was Imported to Take a
Striker's Place.
Chanute, Dec. 29. A sensation has
been caused here by an elopement which
was evidently a case of love at first
sight. Both the parties were strangers
to each other prior to the Santa Fe
opeiatoi-s" strike.
Mrs. T. H. Coffman was the only wo
man barber Chanute could ever boast
of. The man was an operator named
Harold G. Payne, who has been work
ing at the dispatcher's office lately, hav
ing been brought here by the Santa Fe
company during the recent strike.
Mrs. Coffman is a well known figure
in Chanute, having had charge of the
Krst chair in her stepfather's. J. Hud
kins', barber shop near the Santa Fe
track just east of the Candy parlor, for
a year or two. Her husband, T. H.
Coffman, is a well known Santa Fe
DiaKeman, who went to Hot Springs,
Ark., recently because of noor health.
Since Payne came to Chanute he
had been noticed paying attentions to
Mrs. Coffman, and spent a large part
or jiia, time m oaroer snop, wnen
Mr. Hudkins was absent. Sunday he
wrote the following note to her, which
is self-explaining, and she showed it
to ner mother:
"My Dear Mrs. Coffman This will
rrobably be somewhat of a surprise
to you, but having just arrived in your
city, and learned that you were still
here, I hastened to address you.
"Would it be convenient for you to
receive an old friend whom you will
undoubtedly recall having met in
Walla Walla during your visit in
Washington some few months ago?
Miss White mentioned in connection
with my visit here that you would re
member her, and wished me to ex
tend her best wishes. If convenient
to receive me I should consider it an
exceptional pleasure to call this evening
at half after 8. In the meantime I am,
my dear madam, very cordially,
This note was written to get him
up at the house, where he was intro
duced as an old acquaintance she had
met. while visiting her uncle in Wash
ington. During his stay he proposed
that he accompany Mrs. Coffman to
the Christmas exercises the next
night. Mrs. Hudkins, who did not like
his looks and it may be said in passing
that he is one of the ugliest men ever
seen in Chanute told him he could go
if they all went together. The next day
he said he had some extra work to do
and could not go. Mrs. Coffman went
down to the shop in the evening. Upon
closing the shop she went over to the
Delmonico, where she waited, saying
someone was coming to take her home.
She was joined by Payne there, and they
left on the night train. Their present
location is not known.
The news was telegraphed to Mr.
Coffman, but nothing has been heard
from him yet. It is rumored that
rayne is a married man.
A Wellington Boy Finds Living' in
Buenos Ayres Expensive.
Wellington, Kaa, Dec. 29. W. A.
Lichtenberger has received a letter from
John Pitts, dated Buenos Ayres, Octo
ber 23. He says in part:
"Buenos Ayres i a great cityof 800,-
000 people. The people here are great
for sport and enjoyment. There is no
city outside of Paris that can come
any way near supporting so many fine
carriages and horses and such a num
ber of pretty and well dressed women
as Buenos Ayres.
"Everything is very expensive iere.
I am paying $10 per day for board and
room, and only two meals per day.
Coffee in the morning is extra.
A John B. Stetson hat, such as we
in the states pay $5 for, is sold for $23.
I have just now received my laundry
for last week: One suit of underclothes,
two shirts and collars, three handker
chiefs and two pairs of socks and the
bill is $3.S. Tobacco is clear out of
ight. Such cigars as are sold in the
states for five cents would cost 50 and
75 cents here, and pipe tobacco, plug
cut, costs $8 per pound, and good chew
ing tobacco you cannot buy here at any
price. So if you want to send me a
Christmas present, tobacco is the stuff.
"All the people here that are not na
tives are here for what money there is
in it.
'This is a very healthful place, and
the climate is fine, although it has been
very wet here this year, more rain than
us.ial, and the roads outside of the city
are almost impassable. The amount of
rainfall in the past six months has been
three feet and six inches, not counting
what has fallen in the last forty-eight
hours. The prospect for a grain crop is
anything but flattering."
Trial Seed Wheat Yields a High
Average to an Acme Farmer.
Abilene. Kas.. Dec. 29. W. R. Dunlap.
of Acme, who is one of the leading
farmers in that vicinity, sowed fourteen
bushels of Pearl wheat on thirteen acres
of ground a year ago last fall.
It yielded 420 bushels, or a little more
than thirty-two bushels per acre, all of
which he sold at 7o cents per bushel
for seed, except what he wanted for
seed for himself. This kind of wheat
last year and thus far this year, he

was obtained from northern Ohio.
Mr. Dunlap is of the opinion that li

every few years very little injury would

Mining Machinery in Africa,
Turner, Kan., Dec 29. Allen A.
Swinelev. managing director at
Johannesburg, South Africa, for Sheriff.
Swingley & Co., (limited), extensive
dealers in mining machinery, spent
Christmas day with his mother here.
Mr. Swingley was born in Johnson
county, Kansas, forty years ago, and is
a son of the late George Swingley. For
the last fifteen years he has traveled in
foreign countries, engaged chiefly in

are unlimited. This little country, he
says, practically controls the diamond
markets of the world, and though the
end of the war is not yet in sight, he
believes it will continue to do so tor
many years.
