There was certainly a serious charge apainst Head or he would not have been hit at all but although l!i3 wound was not serious or alarming he waa taken home instead of "being locked up. Chief Stahl and his officer offer no explanation of this strange pro-c-dinr. RESULT OP THE AT'TOPST. An autopsy was held this morning over the body of George Head and it was found that his skull was fractured ty the blow from Policeman Hall's club. The fracture is between four and five inches long and extends across the fore liead from one temple to the other. Dr. 1j. II. Jlunn. Dr. H. B. Hogeboom, Dr. R. K. Kuckmaster, l)r. L. Y. Grubbs, Dr. K. G. Stewart and Dr. C. E. Judd con ducted the autopsy. Dr. Hogeboom said: 'The autopsy showed that Head's skull had sustained a complicated frac ture from a point over the left eye. across the bridge of the nose to a. point jibove the right eyo. The wound in the scalp is about an inch long and the frac ture about four inches long. There was concussion enough from the blow to irodU''e a hemorrhage of the brain. The fracture would cause death at some time if not right away by cerebral meningi tis. The autopsy showed the organs ef fected by excessive use of liquors." Ul to S o'clock this afternoon Police man Halt had not been placed under arrest. He spent the day at the police station. This morning Chief Stahl visited the county attorney to try and avoid n has ty arrest. Airs. Head, the wife of the dead man, also visited the county at torney and talked the matter over, but no wan ant was issued, as it was thought wise to wait the termination of the autopsy and the coroner's in quest. , Hall will undoubtedly be arested.

FEED YGIKSELF SCIENTIFICALLY. Some Sure Results From Proper Food Selection. Farmers select certain food to bring about desired results in their animals, but it is not so easy a matter with the complex machine called man, (or more highly organized woman). The food specialist, however, has been at work, and in Grape-Nuts we find a food containing delicate natural particles of Phosphate of Potash and larger quan tities of albumen. These unite in the human body form ing the peculiar soft substance which fills the cells of the brain. . Therefore, w hen one desires to use a food directly Intended for brain-building the food Grape-Nuts may be depended upon. Fortunately it is one of the most de licious bits of food used by mankind, the delicate sweet of Grape-Sugar being of the most charming character.

Grant was celebrated here today. The occasion was the tenth of a series and in every re spect was successful. The speaker of the day. Rev. Dr. Frank AV. Gunsaulus, and a party of distinguished guests, ar rived from Chicago at 1:13 o'clock and were escorted to Turner i.n'u. Rev. Dr. Gunsaulus' address was warmly received by an immense audi ence. The city was decorated in iionor of the event, which was participated in by leading citizens of towns and vil lages within a radius of 100 miles. Let ters of regret were read from Mrs. Gen. Grant, Mrs. Sartoris, Admiral Dewey, Senator Chauncey M. Depew, Senator Allison and other prominent Americans. William Rippen, president of the Grant Birthday association, delivered the ad dress of welcome. Rev. Frank W. Gunsaulus, thed orator of the day, in his address said: ".We are w orthy of the memory of GENERAL GRANT. Grant only when we have his magnan imity, straightforwardness, heroism and sense of justice toward the oppressed of every race. It is demoralizing for us to parade our shallow scepticism as to the value of emancipation and the necessity of honest suffrage for the negro in the presence of Ihis great name and seek to simulate contentment as to the condi tion of the freed men when the thunder of his uncompromising righteousness filles our ears. Justice must be done to the negro who has the ballot in his hands and the franchise must be pro tected, or we must at last sink into abysses of hypocrisy with Grant's mon ument casting a shadow over us. Our American life needs now as never before to emulate the man who was as gentle as he was strong, who never knew how to boast and who believed in the sim plicity of righteousness. It was Grant who prevented the republic from break ing its moral contract made by the greenback, and it will be the American spirit such as we then saw incarnated in Grant at a moment when dividends were counted more precious than hoor or manhood, which shall now redeem our pledges to the negro who was as effective as the greenback in helping to purify our flag. "When Grant sent Sheridan to Louisi ana to carry justice to the negro, his was a Republicanism which must al ways believe that a Hag worthy of re spect will protect its citizens, black or white, from outrage and wrong. It will require a stern heroism at the north to beat back a wave of supercilious and unmanly prejudice against the negro which will as practically deprive him of his civil rights as that same prejudice once enslaved him at the south. It is a great day when Wise of Virginia, who has in his blood the memory of that Wise of Virginia who hanged John Brown, stan.is courageously against the apparent decadence cf the I'nion League club of New York City and helps to bring it back to the standard under which it fought in the days of Grant and Lincoln. It was mercantilism which was w illing to permit Lincoln and Grant to be ineffective against the slave power nearly forty years ago. It is now a sod den and greedy commercialism which chokes the conscience of the republic, and nothing but tae love of justice in which the sword of Grant was sharpen ed and ground vill save our nation and ( our constitution as before. So long as state sovereignty may annul constitu tional amendments and destroy the lib erty or threaten the ballot of an Ameri can citizen, be he black or whiu;, we are utterly unworthy of the memory of Uiyssea S. Grant. His spirit alone makes us a nation." OFFICIALS DISAPPOINTED. Their Car Can Not Be Attached to President's Train. W "W. Martin, department commander of the G. A. R., received word from Sec retary Cortelyou this morning that it would not be feasible to attach another car to the presidential train from Junc tion City into Topeka. This frustrates the plan of the state officers meeting the president at that point and escorting the party into the city in that wise, unless the state officials charter a special train of their own to run in ahead of the presi dential train. It is not likely this will be done, in deference to the wishes of the president. Secretary Cortelvou's dispatch stated that the plan would not be' feasible be cause tile train as made up would be very heavy. It is said the make-up will con sist of se'-en Pullmans and two or three baggage cars. The secretary also in formed Commander Martin that the gen eral arrangement for receptions was for the receiving parties to meet the presi dent at their own cities, because of the extent of the trip, and suggested that ar rangements be made here to conform to that plan. The executive council is to take up the matter of plans now. It is probable that Friday, June 7 will be made Governor's day at the old soldiers' encampment. The governor and his staff would make their visit representing the state on that day, and return that night in time to greet the president here next morning. CALLS IT A WILD CAT. Th&t Is "What Mr. Church Say3 of Old Wayne Insurance Co. Complaints have come into t-he office of State Superintendent of Insurance Church about the business methods of the Oil Wayne Mutual Life Insurance company, of Indianapolis. The Old Wayne is not licensed to do business in Kansas and is therefore classed as working "Underground." Thecomplaintsstatethat an agent of the company has taken their money and has not issued policies to them in rea sonable time. Superintendent Church says the Old Wayne is a wildcat concern that has a poor rating in its own state; that it slips in and solicitis business in Kansas without taking out a state license and schemes to evade the law. He says to proceed against the company would ne cessitate going to Indiana with the suit and the best thing for people to do is to do business with duly licensed compa nies. Some of the insurance taken by the Gfd Wayne has been written in To peka. BID RVKIFiLEY GOODBY. Cuban Delegates Make Final Call on the President. Washington, April 27. The members of the Cuban commission called upon the president today to bid him farewell. Senor Capote urged that something be done at once toward reciprocal treaty relations for the benefit of the Cubans. The president replied that nothing could be done on economic lines until the present questions were settled; that It would be necessary for the Cubans to form a government before any negotia tions could be entered into. He assured the delegation that as soon as the Cu ban government was formed he would appoint a commission to consider eco nomic relations. Parole For a Woman. Governor Stanley has decided to parole Cora Frost, a Fort Scott girl, who was led into evil ways, and is now in prison.

Nobody wanted to buy stocks the last few days, not even the lambs. Professional traders were taking profits or selling short. Brokers have been advising caution. The insiders may keep stocks around these prices for months. They cannot unload in a day or a week. It is my impression that Mon dav will be another big "boiling" day, perhaps 2"- million shares. On sharp bulges it will be advisable to take profits on some of the stocks bought on yester day's break. There is no great danger, however, in buving around current levels B. R.

Chicago: Cables are up again this morning, just as predicted, and the mar ket will in all probability be held up to dav in order to make good reading for the Sunday papers. The cash situation is the only legitimate support to wheat fu tures and exports have been rather largo for a month or more, but this -can be accounted for, viz., English merchants have been in fear that the English gov ernment would impose an import duty on breadstuffs and in consequence have been laving in reserve stocks before the sug gested dutv went on. America, of course, got the call on account of being nearer than any other wheat exporting country. These large exports to England naturally makes it a little difficult for cash grain concerns, who sold wheat to the mills to arrive to fill contracts, but as soon as these holes are filled up we will see a pretty sick market.
