Felix Can- Has the Fastest Two-Year-Old
in Training at San Francisco.
San Francisco, April 25. After his per

no question of OorriKari's claim upon the

CorriKan a grand colt. It is too bad that
Green B. Morris shipped away when he
did. for a meeting at this time between
CorriKan and Oolden Cottane would ex
cite widespread interest. Since these two
met the former has improved much, and
many believe he is now the best 2-year-okl
that has shown in California.
Barney tichreiber was not sure that
CorriKan could give away all that weight
and win the Western Foal, and as they
were putting the saddle in its place lie
remarked as much to Uominick, who was
of a different opinion.
"If tney look CorriKan in the eye. said
the jockey, after listening to Barney'.
talk, "he will look riKht back at them.
Don't be afraid of that weight, for he
likes it; and don't be afraid to bet oi
him he is going to skin the bunch."
These words cheered Barney up. and
he went into the ring and placed KoO at
2 to 1 on Felix's colt. A great jiiany wise
acres backed Flora Pomona and lxreen to
take the prize, which made the odds good
on Corrigan.
It was reported that Sam Hildreth
offered $10.0X1 for Corrigan, but Barney
denied this.
"Sam said he would give Felix JT.fSOO
for Corrigan," said Barney, "but this whs
some time ago. 1 told Felix not to let
him go for less than iln.Ow). and it is just
as well that Sam did not buy him. for he
has won very nearly this amount in
stakes since he made the offer. Corrigan
is still for sale, but not for less than

The total value of the Western Foal
stakes was $.i.S.ir, of which .-W.U15 went to
the winner. This time the breeder s share
fell to Barney.

FITZ AND "WIFE MAKE UP.
Former Champion Effects Reconcilia
tion and the Feud Is Over.
New York. April 25. News reached
town last night that the Fitzsimmons
feud was over, and that Bob and Rose
had kissed and made up. According to
the story from Washington, the recon
ciliation is attributed to Fitzsimmons' for
getfulness. He neglected to wind his
watch. When he got up at his hotel he
found his watch marked 10:."5. He thought
he had plenty of time to catch his train
for Cleveland. He sauntered to the sta
tion, but found his train gone. His watch
still pointed to ly:X5. He strolled back to
the hotel. Nothing further from hts
thoughts than a reconciliation. He heard
sobs in Mrs. Fitz's room as he passed it,
and heard his eldest son say "Don't crv,
mamma." Fitz dashed into the room
without the ceremony of knocking. He
caught his wife in his arms, kissed he.-,
and pleaded, "Rosie. forgive me." All
was forgiven amid more tears and more
kisses. Bob said nothing of his watch.
A later train took the Fitzsimirons fam
ily, dogs included, to Cleveland, and it
was a happy family. t i

that the game for today was declared
off and the Chicagos returned home last
night. Cincinnati will play in Chicago on
Friday. The batting was terrilic, the
water catching more balls than the field

base. The locals were more familiar with

Election of Grand Officers.
Chanute, April 25. Chanute is to have
several hundred visitors the first of
next month. The twelfth annual session
of the Grand Lodge, Degree of Honor,
is to be held in this city. The session
will last three days and will begin May
1st.
Boardwell lodge, the local chapter
here, has been silently making great
preparations for that event for several
months, and is going to show their vis
iting sisters what Chanute hospitality
is like. The session will be held in the
Masonic hall. Just what the Chanute
ladies have in store for their visitors
is not fully known, but the two most
important features will be a reception
Wednesday evening. May 1, and a big
banquet the evening of May 2.
The number of visitors that will "be
here is estimated from two to four hun
dred. There are nearly 200 lodges of the
order in Kansas and each of them will
send a delegate. In addition to the dele
gates will be the grand lodge officers,
and teams from many lodges. Mrs.
Grace Gulic, grand chief of honor, is re
ported as saying that there will be
nearly four hundred in attendance.
The Degree of Honor is the auxiliary
to the A. O. IT. W. lodge, and while not
as strong as it, is in a very prosperous
and flourishing condition. The most
interesting feature of the session will
be the election of the grand officers, and
those that will cause the hottest con
tests are grand chief of honor, grand
recorder, grand receiver, grand medical
director. The persons holding these
offices now are Mrs. Grace W. Gulic,

TO PLANT LESS POTATOES.
Farmers Along the Kaw Valley Are
Discouraged This Season.
Leavenworth, April 25. Plowing for
potatoes has commenced in the Kaw
valley. The wet weather has made the
work about three weeks late this year.
Several farmers planted potatoes during
the first week in March and the seed has
laid in the ground ever since. It is said
the potatoes planted then did not rot in
the ground and are now beginning to
come up.
The worst feature of the delay in
planting the potatoes is that the Kaw
valley product is late in getting on the
market and dealers are forced to ship
potatoes in from the south. This in
turn cuts the Kaw valley men out of
supplying towns in this sectcn Kansas
City, Leavenworth, Atchison, Topeka.St.
Joseph and others.
Then when their crop does come in
they are forced to ship it away.
William Shannon was in from Lenape
yesterday and he says the acreage of
potatoes will be much less than in the
Kaw bottoms this year.
"Why, there are men near Lenape
who owe for the seed potatoes they
sowed two years ago," said Shannon.
"There is no money in potatoes at 15
cents per bushel. The low prices have
seriously impaired many of the farmers
in my section of the valley.
"Right around Lenape alone. I can
name a half dozen men who will put in
from 20 to 80 acres less this year than
in former years. Ed Morton will put
in 20 acres less; Dubordieu 20 less; John
Henry will plant 80 acres less: the acre
age on the Price farm will be much les3
and I could name you many more. And
it is not only around Lenape. but all
along the valley the same way."
HESSIAN FLY APFEARS.
Evidence of the Pest in McPherson
Wheat Fields.
McPherson, April 25. Many of the
farmers have been complaining about
the Hessian fly that they claim has beer,
damaging the wheat. Ed Berg went out
to his field the other day and returning
said that the wheat on his farm was
just lively with the fly.
Testerday Mr. Hartsock and Mr. Tull
went out and examined every wheat
field within three miles of town, but
could not find any fly to amount to any
thing, so they pulled up some of the
wheat and brought it in and had Mr.
Berg examine it and he said that there
was no fly there. Several days ago
while a reporter was talking to Ed Hor
ton, living four miles east of town, he
said his wheat was just alive with fly
and he did not think that his wheat
would be worth much unless he could
get rid of the fly in some way. This fly
seems to be scattered in different places,
some fields being full of them while oth
ers not having any.
HONOR CLAY CENTER MAN.
Citizens Remember a Pioneer
Who
Helped Upbuild the City.
Clay Center, Kan., April 25. The peo
ple of Clay Center are made of the
right kind of material. About 30 years
ago Alonzo Dexter laid out the town
site of Clay Center, and for many years
he was a most Important factor in the
upbuilding of the town. He was pub
lic spirited and was ever ready to lend
a helping hand to any enterprise that
would add to the city's greatness. In
laying out the townsite he gave up one
block in the heart of the town for a
court house square, another block for a
school house and two blocks for a city
park. Mr. Dexter, like nearly all of the
pushers of the early day, went broke.
He is now getting old and has no means
of earning a livelihood.
In consideration of his big donations
to the original city, his past services as
a citizen and his public enterprise al
ways shown when he had the means,
the people propose to make him cus
todian of the new court house now be
ing erected, which position he will hold
during the remainder of hi3 life. As a
further consideration they have also
petitioned the city council to name the
city park "Dexter park." This will be
done at the next meeting- of the coun
