Probably Donnelly's frst question to ;Shakespeare will be: Now, honest, Bill, did you write those plays? The Missouri legislature has indicated a. db;p0Siti011 tò enter the refarm bust IIPSS by refusing' ta elect Prank James dc,orkeeper. The Hawaiian delegate to congress has no vote, but he gets more mileage than any of the members who have a voice in the law making. The fact that Mr. Cleveland occasion ally takes time to write a few words of advice to the Democrats must be a wel come one to the ducks. , . -- The distribution of interest and divi eends the first of the year is said to have amounted to .112 per capita. and yet there are some men who are broke. A reward of $13.0e0 has been offered for Pat Crowe and nothing. said about lKidnaring. NOW is the time for that individual to come in and claim the money. There Is nothing to Indicate that there will be any reduction in the usual number of -hold op- bills offered at the session cf the legislature which opens tomorrow. Secretary Gage proposes to add still another kind of money to, the many al ready in existence by coining 'Filipina dollars' containing' 45 cents worth of silver. The Filipinos do not take to our money any more readily than they do tco our pc3dit,cs The 'Washington Post would like to tear from Prof. Herron on. the prob able cause of Dt-bs' defeat. It Will be remembered that the professor attrib uted mr. Itryan's failure to be elected to the fact that he was not sufficiently radical in his views and utterances. It is re'.ated of "Miss Hanna's comin4 nut party at the Cleveland Chamber of Conunerre, that there were scores of det,:-ctivrs pres.r.,nt in full dress. No reason is assigned, but perhaps they were look ing for Pat C e According, to a dispatch from Wash ington "there is a. growing sentiment in congress in favor of making the terms of the tm,rnbers of the &louse four years Instead of t NVO, ER at present." This change. it is urrred, would be conducive to better legislation. because it would enable the house to be more deliberate in its action and release the congress men the fear of passing public, sentiment. Some change which would cao,,:e congressmen to stand more in the fear of public sentiment would be more to the point. , In his rfport on the production of the precious metals and the world's supply of curn-ncy the director of the mint gives the tntal stock of gold, silver and paper, including fractional silver, but not minor coin. at $4,600,000,000 in 1873 and $11,C00.000,00 1900--an increase of over 152 per cent. The director places the increas,1 of gold at S3,600,000.000, cf silver at $2,7-30,0ü0.000 and of uncover,d paper at s.;5o.ovo.nno. It appears. there fore, that the increase in gold was near ly one-third gteater than the increase in silver and more than rive times as gTeat as the increase in uncovered paper. Gifts and bequests for public pur roses during last year aggregated $62,- 461...?,04, of which nearly $35,000,0,10. or considerably more than one-half, v,-ent to universities, colleges and other educa tional Institutions. Of the remaining ir.:7,000.000 a little more than a half went to charities, while nearly $9,000,000 was given to churches. The balance of $5,- 0',0,fY0 was divided about evenly between museums, art galleries and libraries. Andrew Carnegie NV ELS the largest public giver of the year, his benefactions foot ing up $4,225.000, of which all but $625,000 went to Pittsburg's institute and li brary. The next largest public bene factors were Samuel Cupples and R. A. Ilrookings, of St. Louis, who gave S5,- CA000 to Washington university. The list of these public givers of millions in cludes less than twenty names SETBACM FOR BOUNTY GRAB. From the Chicago Chronicle. On reassembling- after the holiday re cess the senate made haste to sidetrack the shipping bounty grab and give the right of way to the army reorganization bi:1 Senator Frye, who has for years been an ardent advocate of legislation of this kind and who bas made by far the s..rongest speevh in support of the pend ing bill, was in the chair, and lie found it necessary to rule that the adoption ut the motion to proceed with tbe arm., bill would displace his pet measure and s,nd it to the foot of the calendar. This looks as though. the grab was knocked out for this session, for, what -with the army bill, the tax-reduction bill and the great at,propriation the senate probabl3r hîs enough to keop it pretty busy until the 4th of March, especially if there Is a disposition to kill leglalatlwa by takiPg PlentY of titne to consider legislation of other kinds. While there is no longer any great danger of the SUCCESS of this grab dur ing the present SeSSiOrl, there is still considerable danger of its success when the new congress comes in. The longer the bill can be staved off the better the prospect of American taxpayers, because the more apparent it will become tha,t we shall have Amer ican shipping in the foreign trade with out bestowing public money upon its owners. GLOBE SIGHTS. From the Atchison Globe. The love of a woman is more danger ous than the enmity of a man. The electricians promise as many wonderful things as the politicians. Nearly every man thinks his neigh bors should "do" aumething for him. There is one trip we all have to take! the trip to the cemetery, and we can t always ride in the rear CUa.Cil What has become of the old-fashioned woman who made her children a night gowns out of hour sacks? It is said of Mrs. Will Findley that she can get up a good meal quicker and easier than ally other woman in town. The Omaha kidnaper has already done more writing than the oruinary man can do without getting into trouble. Young girls are a good deal like their fathers: they think any one can be a good cook who has enough energy to mix a few things. SO far as we have been able to learn, only seven women in Atchison failed !ci receive a turn over hand-made lace col lar for Clu'istmas. Subject for debate at the next meet ing of the Lancaster literary society: "Should a farmer invest his money in lit'e insurance or in cabinet organs?" The color of the pumpkin pie is a good test of a cook. When it is a pale yellow, you miss nothing by passing it by. Pumpkin pie should not be ot the bilious tinge. The women are wearing a sort of sec ond sleeve that looks as if their under sleeves had dropped down. As a. heartto-heart hint, we suggest that they tuck them up better. An Atchison woman has been win ning some homage in society because she spcke of her "morning room." The gossips find that she refers to her kitchen. And why isn't the 'Eitel:ten the "morning room"? Honesty is still the best policy: the man who captures the Cudahy kidnap er, will got as much money as the kid naper, and be known as a useful, hon est man with a. marked detective In stinct. When a little girl packs her gown and a hair brush in a, valise, and goes with her father for a short trip, the instruc tions given him, if bound, would make Shakespeare's complete works look like thirty cents.

Many a man who suddenly rose to em inence neglected to take a parachute with him. , A man who neglects his own business can't be trusted to look after other peo ple's affairs. A truthful west side dentist advertises as follows: "Teeth extracted with great pains." A lady writer advises girls never to marry men who talk loud. The advice is certainly sound.

Will Push His Bill to Experiment DI Western Part of Eansas. Washington, Jan. 7.Representative Reeder talks interestingly of his bill to appropriate 325,000 for the work of in vestigating the practical features of sinking- artesian wells in the arid sec tions of Kansas for irrigating purposea. Artesian wells: he says. have resulted in great practical good in South Dakota, where the experimental stage has been passed long ago, The region which he wants to Improve includes almost the whole tte2tern third of Kansas, or about forty counties. He says in the past two or three years the crops which have been raised there have been in a, large measure satisfac tory, but they did not begin to reach the proportions which they would have reached had there been more water available. The wells which he wants sunk should go to a. depth of from 2,000 to 3,000 feet, he says. Wells which have been sunk to a depth of 1,000 feet have sent up salt water, but he believes that the great depth will reach desirable quantity of v,-ater and prevent the distressing-, disastrous drouths which have so retarded the agricultural de velopment of that country. THEIR FINAL DECISIONS. - Supreme Court Will Be Larger When Next It Acta, The supreme court has handed down the last lot of decisions that will be given until the court is increased by the four judges tts provided in the law passed,at the last election, which will reorganize the court and make the total number of judges seven. There were no important cases in the decisions handed down, and the only one which is attracting any attention is the Murphy case from Leavenworth county. Murphy was sentenced to the reformatory from Lea,venworth, and the managers decided that he should be transferred to the penitentiary at Leav enworth. He took the case to the su preme court, claiming that when the managers of the reformatory discharged him he was entitled to his liberty. The court held that he was Incorrigible, and that the management had the right to send him to the penitentiary if tbey saw fit.

STRANGE GIBBERISH. "Students" Talk But No One Understands Them. Mr. Parham Calls It "Power of the Lord." There is a ,row at Bethel Eible col lege. S. J. Riggina, a- student, is the cause of the trouble. He pronounces the institution a "fake" of the most pro nounced type. This is the school at the Stone mansion west of the city, found ed by Rev. Charles P. Parham, and which he is conducting on faith prin ciples. Mr. Parham 8.nd his followers believe they have the gift of tongues spoken of in the second chapter of the Acts of the Apostles. With this they believe they have the power of discernment and the g-ift of prophecy. Mr. Biggins came to the school sev eral weeks ago with a class from Kan sas City. He went there, as he says, "to study the Bible and do what I could for the cause of God, but there were those at the school whom I did not think were the earnest Christians I had supposed them to be, and I left the school to work in the city and study the Bible. Later I went to Kansa,s city and worked with one of the MiSSiOEIS there, and after wards camp back to Bethel. This was after the ones with vaiom I felt I could not work had left. "After staying at the school the last time things came to a, pretty pass,. The'y began to claim the gift of tongues and the gift of discernment, and each talked a- different kind of gibberish, claiming to be inspired by God, and that they talked one of the foreign. lan guages. "I was not under the influence, and could see that the students of the school had been led to this extreme through their fanaticism, and finally decided to leave the school. Accordingly last Sat urday morning I went away, but before going- I called the inmates of the building- together and explained to them my reasons for leaving. I told them they were under the influence of the evil one, and that the best thing they could do would be to leave the school, as I was doing. They all laughed at me, and I left the school, and do not intend to return." The Bible school was started at Stone's Folly some months a,go by Ala Parham, who for several years has been the pastor of the Apostolic congre gation in this city. He 1N-as brought into some prominence last. fall through be ing connected for a time with Rev. Sandborn, v,-ho took a class of about sixty to his Bible school at Shiloh, Me., among them being Lizzie Bell, the To peka girl who ran away from the school during 8,n alleged fit of temporary in sanity. After returning from Shiloh, Me., Mr. Parham shortly after started the Bible school in this city, which is conducted on the lines laid dov,n by the larger school at Shiloh. Theirs Is a faith belief, and it is through faith and prayer that the school is kept in existence. Everything used at the school has been furnished through free-will offering and In an sv,.er to prayer. It is their belief that everything- needed by them Will be fur nished them through divine influence. Their faith also teaches healing through prayer. , About a. week ago the "gift of tongue" was bestowed upon one of their number, Miss Agnes N. Ozman, who be gan to speak in words which it is claimed is one of the foreign languages. Since that time she has written and spoken several lang-uages it is claimed through inspiration of God. About fifteen members of the colony have now been given the gift of tongue, and when a State Journal reporter called at the school this morning each of the favored ones were called up and spoke a. few sentences in strange and unnatural way, outlandish words which they neither knew the mea,ning of nor the language to which they belonged. Their reason for uttering them is that the Lord inspires them, and that dur ing the time they are speaking they do not know what they are saying, but afterwards the Lord prompts them to utter tbe meaning of the strange words. It is EL peculiar sight to, see a. whole room full of the men 8,nd women of the school sitting around. occasionally breaking out with brief outbursts of talk in one of the many langua,ges which they claim to speak, ELIE1 d writing the quaint and indistinguishable hiero glyphics v-hich they believe to be the characters for words in. the Syrian, Chi nese, Japanese, Arabic and other lan guages. Me Parham said: "It is a wonderful work, coming as it does on the eve of the twentieth century. We ha,ve for long believed that the power of the Lord would be manifested in our midst, and that power would be given us to speak other languages, and that the time will come when we will be sent to go into all the nations and preach the gospel, and that the Lord will give us the power of speech to talk to the people of the vari ous nations without having to study them in schools." NAT TAYLOR RESIGNS. -- Leaves Bank of Topeka to Go to Taylor. who etas been receiving teller of the Bank of Topeka for sev eral years, has resigned his position. Mr. 'raylor will go to Great Falls, Montana., where two of his brothers-inlaw are engaged in the banking busi ness, Mr. Taylor has been considering a business venture in Great Falls for some time and has resigned to go there and engage in business. Lipton's Estimate of Armour. London, Jan. 7.--The pres; here has published kind'iy notices of the late Phillip D. Armour and of his generous philanthropy. Sir Thomas Lipton in the course of an interview paid high trib ute to the deceased ilinerchant's simplic ity of life. untiring industry and un bounded charity. "Mr. Armour realized more than most men," said Sir Thomas, "that he owed a great deal to the world and had to pay his toll to fortune. Hard man of business as he was, few petition ers with fair claims ter help ever found him turn a deaf ear." A Mi Ill013 For Chicago. Washington, Jan- 7.--Secretary Gaga has sent to the house an estimate of ap propriations aggregating $1,01)0,000 for continuation of the work on the United States postoffice and court house build ing at Chicago, for the fiscal year 1902. nola DEATH OF 2111. HACKNEY. -- EX-Topekan Dies Alter Operation in Milwaukee. Word has reached Topekzt of the death In Milwaukee of Clem. Hackney, which occurred Sunday night at 8:30 af ter being- operated upon for gall stones. Air. Hackney was born in Warringtoi. England. on May 18, 1848. and was 53. years old. He passed through the pub lic schools of Milwaukee and began his railroad career In the machine shops of theMilyvaukeeand Prairie du Chien rail way. He afterwards became a. fireman on the same road and was promoted to an engineer. From 1875 until 1878 he was master of transportation of the Milwau kee Iron company at Alilwankee. Fol lowing this he wa,s appointed assistant superintendent of machinery of the SaTi ta Fe in Topeka which position be held from 1878 to 1Ss5. He next accepted the position of sup erintendent of machinery of the Union Pacific at Omaha, remained in this ca pacity until 1S1.. The remaining time until his death was spent in the employ of the Fox Pressed Steel company of Joliet, and Pittsburg, Pa., with headquarters at Chicago, in the capac ity of general manager. Mr. Hackney was a brother of Mrs. C. D. Skinner and Herbert Hackney of this city and was the son of George Hackney who was for many years sup erintendent of machinery of the Santa Fe. He leaves a wife and one son who is now the manager of the Joliet works of the Fox Pressed Steel company NORTH TOPEKA BRIDGE. Plan on Foot to Erect One on Fair child Street A meeting has been called for Wed nesday night at the fire station in North Topeka of all those interested in secur ing a bridge over the Kaw at Fairchild street A movement was on foot during the past summer to secure a bridge at thig point and the sum of $500 was offered by Jonathan Thomas to be devoted to the fund to build such a bridge. Tile ma-tter was dropped at that time but is again being agitated. A bill will pro bably be introduced in the legislature to allow bonds to be voted for this purpose. With the building' of that bridge the people of that vicinity want that the Street Railway company shall connect their North Topeka and Oakland lines, thus making a circuit and giving Oak land a 15 minute service. The track could be laid, over the bridge at Fair child street and would be a vast accom modation to many who cannot reach the street railway at present. A NEW POINT. Will Be Presented in Next Batch of Porto Rican Case& Washington, Jan. 7.--The argument in the supreme court in the Porto Rican cases, involving the question of the legality of duties imposed by this Coun try on goods shipped from the United States to Porto Rico and from Porto Rico to the United States, did not be gin today, as other cases preceding had the effect of postponing it until tomor row. The couit, however, took suffi cient cognizance of the cases to decide what time shoUld be given to each side of the controversy. This question was raised by former Secretary Carlisle, who stated that five of the cases could be consolidated. 'These cases are the cases of De lima a,nd others versus Col lector Bidwell. S. B. Dovvns versus Col lector Bidwell, two cases of H. W. Dooley versus the -United States, and Carlos Armstrong- versus the United States. Upon suggesticyn the court awarded five hours to each side or the controversy. Mr. Carlisle stated that these cases in li(dved the double question of the power of the United States to levy duty on goods shipped in both directions, the question regarding the imposition of duties on goods going into Porto Rico being entirely new. DEER IN CONNECTICUT. tll'rom the Hartford Times.) It seems to be a fact, proved by almost daily observation now, that the deer are returning' to Connecticut, and in good numbers, too. Reports are beard almost daily of one or more of the,se graceful animals being seen in one or another part of the good old state, under circumstances which fix it that they are new arrivals. There are probably more dPer in Con necticut today than at any previous time within the last 150 years. They are seen on railroad tracks. in fields and gardens. and even feeding with the domestic cat tle. -Where they all come from and what is drawing- or sending them here seem not to be very clear. They are not only seen in most unexpected places, but ap pear to be singularly tree from fear cif human beings. They are seen, too, in nearly all parts of the state. A day or two ago a young lady down the river be low Middletown succeeded in photograph ing one of them by a snap shot. At al most any time within the last hundred years down to 1900 If a hunter wished to shoot a deer he made a long trip to find his gamegoing- either to the Adirondacks or the far backwoods of Maine. Their appeara,nca in such numbers might be accounted for by the disappear ance of the wolves that formerly de stroyed them: but the wolves have been gone, in almost all parts of New England, for a long time and their disappearance cannot now be relied upon to account for the deer. -Whatever may turn up to be the cause of their sudden and rapid In crease in numbers here in old Connecticut, it is a pleasant thing to see them return ing to this neighborhood. W'hat a pleas ant addition to tilt neighborhood of our forest patches their graceful presence would make if their seeming trust in hu man kind. is permItted to take root and stay.
