NEW YORK OFFICE. 311 Vanderbilc P-ldg.. Paul Block, Mgr. TELEPHONES. Pn."inss Office Bell 'phone 107 Reporters' Room Bell 'phone 677 Will someone -who can be believed kindly tell the truth about Porto Rico? Probably Mr. Geo. Phillips has a lot of hogs and that is why he wants so much corn. Gunner Morgan has sued his wife for divorce, which proves that Admiral Sampson knew his man. Japan now knows what it is to be one ct the progressive pushing nations of the earth. She has a large sized finan cial panic on her hands. The varyins reports of the conditions In Porto Rico indicate that the corres pondent at Mole St. Nicholas is still somewhere in that region. The marriage ceremony might be amended when rich girls marry im pecunious noblemen, so as to read "love, honor, obey and pay h!s debts." AS soon as Mr. Lloyd Griscom- has rested sufficiently he will return to his task of endeavoring to collect that b:il of $1-0.000 which the Sultan of Turkey owes to the United States. The amount of material for speeches which will be gathered by the congress men visiting th? Philippines and Cuba, is likely to necessitate a number of ex tra editions of the Congressional Record. J. Picrpcnt Morpan seems to have adoptedy the drummer's Idea of spend ing a little money with his customers and as a starter has bought the stolen and recovered Gainsborough portrait for JU0.0O0. Kach passing day appears to strength en Mr. Phillips' grip on the corn mar ket. There is now little room for doubt that he will maintain his corner until settlement day. May 1. The May corn option touched 43 cents in Chicago yes terday and Phillips began selling. He disposed of two or three million bushels before the price fell below 4S cents. At that point he stopped with the an nouncement that he was ready to sell any amount at that figure. As soon as he slopped selling another advance set it. While selling May the daring opera tor bought July and incidentally pocket ed a profit of about $200,000. In th-? meantime very little ccrn is going into Chicago even at the prevailing high price. ROAD BUILDING. The farmers in the vicinity of Wa bash, Indiana, having become tired of waiting for a state good roads law have adopted a voluntary system of construc tion and assessment and, the dispatches say, are building gravel roads at a rate which will soon leave few of the old mud highways in existence. These farmers have entered into a mu tual agreement to build the roads them selves and each owner of abutting: pro perty pledges himself to pay a dollar and fifty cents for each acre of land owned by him within half a mile of the road to be improved. He pays in cash or labor, and has three years in which to meet the obligation. The work is done during the dull seasons and the loss of time is not felt while the roads prog ress rapidly. They adopt the later ideas of the road experts and do their work scientifically and thoroughly. In this way, by doing a considerable portion of the work themselves, without any legal machinery the operation of which costs money, they have found that the cost of good hard roads is reduced one half, and while macadam is not used the roads are of a substantial and permanent charac ter. Commenting upon this evidence of prepress the Grand Rapids Press says: "The advantage of this plan' is that it can be carried out by small neighbor hoods. The farmers save the contrac tor's profits and get good work at the minimum of cost. By looking well to the drainage good roads can be constructed without the use cf expensive material and if care Is taken to keep them in re pair they will last for years. By extend ing the cash payments over a period of three years the burden falls lightly on those who assume it. and the construc tion of the road invariably increases the market value of the adjoining lands." GLOBE SIGHTS tFrom the Atchison Globe. A brakeman refers to a coffin aa "a bone dish." In building your air castles, take care always to have plenty of spare rooms to suit your kin. "Now you have got your foot in it," she said to the editor. '-Huh," the editor replied, "it's never out." The history of almost any familv may be told from the clothes that hang on the line every wash day. If you think that people are cruel and cold hearted, it is one sign that you have never had a grief that they knew about. There is a case in Atchison of a burned child who has been getting kindling ready ever since he recovered from his burns. If you amount to more than your neighbor, did you ever think that it may be because you had the good luck to hang on the sunny side of the wall? S.iUi justice: if the older sisters do have the nice clothes, their younger sisters have the youth, and look better In old ones. Those who live for amusement will find Atchison unfortunately locatea. too far east to find fun in hanging a horse thief, and too far west to be in tne yachting belt. TH( newest thiner in women's clubs is the Sacred Order of Whales, so called because the members would believe 1C if their husbands told them they saw a whale swimming up the street. -is your wife a Whale. JOINTED PARAGRAPHS. From the Chicago News.l Cupid is blind to everything but pin money, i The pleasures of madness are known only to lunatics. A husband in hand is worth a dozen or more in prospective. Every woman loves the picture sur rounded by her mirror frame. If you bestow a favor, forget It; If you receive one, remember it. QUAKER REFLECTIONS. From the Philadelphia Record.! Poker players often exchange calls. Some people are too lazy to jump at conclusions. Sometimes the discord in a church cornea from the choir. At least the deaf mute believes that actions speak louder than words. Some men's heads are turned by suc cess. Others are simply "rubbera," JAYHAWKEK JOTS. The flowers that bloom In the spring tra la, in sunny Kansas, will be June roses. . Visiting snake root diggers have oc cupied ail the vacant houses in Stock ton. Why wouldn't it be a good idea to send Funston over to collect that debt from Turkey? Brighter days have come to the sol diers' home at "Klondike" since a Sun? day school has been established. One Wilson county township proposes to encourage a rural mail route by pur chasing a rock crusher and macadamiz ing the roads. Two citizens of Hays City, aged 70 years each, and wealthy, will journey to Russia after brides. Is this a slam on Ellis county girls? Bluebird notes are not the only "warbles" in Sherman county. The cattle are troubled with them severely and many are dying. The bounteous floods in Gray county have not only insured splendid crops, but developed the fact that the Cimar ron court house roof leaks like a sieve. Instead of going out to gather the first young violets the girl trundle bed trash of Hamilton took their brooms and mops and gave the school house a scrubbing. An Emporia tramp rebelled at the sight of a rock pile, which only follows out the old saying, that you can take a lazy man to task, but you can't make him work. As an encouragement to the trade the probate judge of Grant county will make a liberal discount on marriage license prices for the next 30 days. J. C. Postlethwaite will build a porch around his entire residence up in Jew ell county this spring. He should re member the fate of Mr. Bryan, and de sist. Jessie Morrison's conduct has been so exemplary since her trial that Jt will be hard to make the outside world be lieve she was the "mischief maker", charged before the Castle murder. There is some dispute over the age of a noted Brown county mule that weighs a ton. Those gathering around to examine the animal's teeth should bear in mind that it's a poor mule that won't work both ways. A Gove county ranchman who be lieves the constitution follows the flag draws the line at the government re ceipts for killing prairie dogs and has invented a mixture of his own which slays the little pests every pop.

Ralston, who. it is said, was reduced to the ranks as a pun- isnment tor not reporting an inrraotion of the rules in the mess hall, and on which account the cadets have mani fested so much displeasure, is uncom municative.

Plenty of evidence to prove this. Mrs. A. M. Roderick, No. 1012 Lime St., says: "I have had kidney com plaint for five years, in fact, ever since I came to Topeka and attribute it to there being so much aikali in the water. The pain in my back was something aw ful and I often thought it wouid break in two when I stooped. I could not lift anything and to run a sewing machine was out of the question. At one time I suffered so acutely I thought I would sooner be dead than in such misery. The ki 'ney secretions were of a dark and muddy color and their too frequent ac tion disturbed my rest. I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at Rowley & Snow's drug store and their treatment gave me more relief and comfort than I had dur ing five years. The pain in my loins and swelling of my limbs passed away along with the other troubles." For sale by all dealers: price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N.

"Very likely some reductions In rates will be made." he said, "especially for the benefit of small users of telephone service. It is too early, however, for me to give out any specific information on the sub ject. I have really not had an oppor tunity to look over the situation here, and don't know what rates are now charged. "I was on my way to Europe with my daughter when I received the request of the Chicago Telephone company to be come its president. The call was entirely unexpected. I decided, however, to ac cept and gave up my trip abroad to gat into Harness again. RIDDLE WANTS GLICK. Populist Leader Thinks Fusion Would Win on Resubmission Platform. Taylor Riddle is out In an interview at Wichita for CJeorge W. Glick for governor in 1902 and a resubmission plank in the party platform. Riddle Is for Glick because he is acceptable to both branches of the fusionists, as he is a liberal and known to favor the re submission question. Riddle says that it is beyond question of doubt that one of the other of the two prominent political parties of Kan sas will introduce a resubmission plank in the party platform of 1902. and that it will be the Fusion-Demo-Fopulist party that will do it. The Republicans can't afford to introduce such an issue, he thinks, as it would be a case of eat ing dog with them, as their own party leaders made the law for the benefit of their own prohibition friends. CHINESE DOR UP. Retired Behind the Wall to Reappear in Another Place, Pekin. April 26. The Chinese regulars who retired beyond the great wall have reappeared at another point within the international area. Strong representa tions have been made to the Chinese plenipotentiaries in regard to the neces sity for their immediate retirement. The French force is in readiness to renew the operations, but has been ordered to await the result of the imperial edicts. The Chinese are wondering if the im perial commission appointed by an edict issued April 23 to inquire fully into the questions of reforms really means the re linquishing of absolute power by the court or whether it is merely the formation of a privy council. Notices in Chinese were placarded dur ing the night calling on patriotic China men to rise ilay 15 and expel all for eigners. Yung Lti Ting, the censor of Chi Li province, has memorialized the throne to return. Marchacd Had a Scheme. Paris. April 26.

General Bailloud approached Colonel Ala roh and and asked him if he would un dertake a certain enterprise which would very probablv hasten t h end of hostil ities. The colonel replied that he was willing, and Bailloud and Marchand drew up a plan, the execution of which was venturesome but feasible. The diplomats, however, opposed the scheme, and it fell through. LOCAL MENTION. C. O.
