The State Journal Is a member of the Associated Press and receives the lull dav teletrraph report of that great news organization for exclusive afternoon puo Ucation in Topeka. The news is received In the State jour nal building over wires for this sole pur pose, busy through the entire day. A complete copy of the night report is also received. Those who carry the gospel to the benighted are no safer in Louisiana than they are In China or Bulgaria. One was murdered while conducting a camp meeting In that state last Sun day. -3. Mr. Gage's attention having been at tracted by the lowered quotations on United States bonds, he has decided to buy a few more. Now look out for an advance in the price of government securities. Admiral Sampson is said to have lost the use of his vocal organs. It would have been better for his reputation if the same thing had happened to some of his friends shortly after the battle of Santiago. Citizens of San Diego are still work ing industriously for a railroad to Tuma, Ariz., where they would secure connection with the Southern Pacific and incidentally the shortest line of railway between the two oceans. San Diego citizens have been engaged in this same work for many years, and success seems no nearer than it was in the beginning. It appears that Admiral Dewey has resigned the presidency of the Metro politan club, as a dignified protest against the harsh criticism of mem bers that his rulings as head of the court of inquiry were too favorable to Admiral Schley. The Metropolitan is a rather exclusive club of army and navy officers, high government officials and diplomats, and is somewhat inac cessible to the average public opinion. If a religious meeting carried on by Americans had been broken up and eleven of the participants murdered, in a foreign country the whole world w-ould have been shaken by the thunder by our tones in demanding satisfaction. Tet that is substantially what happen ed in Louisiana the other day except that all concerned were American citi zens and almost no attention is paid to it beyond giving the account of the slaughter prominence in the newspa pers. In the mean time we are going right ahead with the business of send ing missionaries to convert the heathen and the government is backing the mis sionaries with guns when occasion seems to require it which by the way is not so infrequently as it should be. How long shall we remain oblivious to tie beam in our own eye? SUNDAY SCHOOL WORKERS. Sessions of County Association Eegan This Afternoon.

Hoover told of "The Teacher's Incentive," and the discussion of the question "In the absence of the super intendent and other officers what would you do?" was led by Bradford Miller. BARBERS GO TO WORK. Topeka Asphalt Pavements May Soon Be Repaired. Two small gangs of pavement re pairers were set to work this morning by the Barber asphalt people. The total number of men working here is about half of what it formerly was. The main portion of the machinery form erly used here is now in Wichita, where extensive repairs are being made on the streets where old car tracks have been removed. H. W. Buckley is in town, and says that work will be pushed ahead rap idly. "Weather permitting we will fin ish up here in ten or twelve days." says Mr. Buckley. "We have one gang at work on Jackson street, and one on Quiney." - Lovers Died Together. Beading, Pa., Nov. 1. At noon today the bodies of Walter Snyder and Min nie Keichsteller were found on Mount Penn with bullet holes through their temples. A pistol was lying by Sny chr's side, and it is supposed he killed the girl and then committed suicide.

Henry Wise man, who nas coniessea to me mm uct of Mrs. Ellen Huss, whose body was j i, .... i ... i , n imHi; near Roval Oak, was today released from Jackson prison, wnere ne nas ueeu schuib u . w.. anvprnnr Bliss com .1 V- i t .. an that he could be tried for murder. Officers from Oakland county, in which tne muraer was com mitted, immediately rearrested Wise man, and he was taken to Pontiac where he will be tried. RECESS APPOINTMENTS Considered by the President and Cab inet at Today's Meeting. Washineton. Nov. 1. The cabinet meeting today was devoted largely to the consideration of the recess appoint ments which the president must send tor congress when it convenes next month. The president is going care fully over these appointments with the members of the cabinet. Secretary Gage reported his action in resuming the purchase of bonds which was responded to today with an offer of over JSOO.OOO. No announce ment was made as to the length of time the purchase is to continue. GOT THE WRONG MAN. Agent Told Assistant Labor Commis sioner Things He Didn't Intend. An agent for an eastern concern that sells sewer pipes ran afoul of Assistant Labor Commissioner B. F. Scott com ing up town from the Santa Fe depot in the street car today. The agent is after a contract in Pittsburg, Kan., and he has no use for the eight-hour working-day law. It interferes with sewer contracts and makes it hard to sell his goods. He was telling his neighbor this in the car and waxed indignant. Ultimately he became confidential with the stranger and unfolded a plan for beating the eight-hour law. "I'll beat it, see if I don't." he de clared. "Oh, no. you won't," replied Scott, "you'd better not try it my friend." "Why?" And then Scott told him he was as sistant to Labor Commissioner W. Lee Johnson, whose hobby is the enforce ment of the eight-hour law. The agent got off the car at the post office. He had burned his powder pre maturely. COSTLY BUGGY RIDE. Elmer Burns Must Pay $41.95 For Going Out With Another's Wife. Attorney Joseph Reed took a trip to Rossville Thursday to defend Elmer Burns, a young man charged with dis turbing the peace of one Curtis. The case was calied before Justice G. C. Pierce, who is also the town druggist. The disturbance for which Burns was arrested consisted of buggy riding with the wife of the complaining witness, and a big crowd of Rossvilleites con gregated in the little drug store, ex pecting to hear some interesting tes timony, but Burns fooled them all by pleading guilty and taking a fine of Jl and costs, amounting to $41.95. Toay that the population of iRossvilier was disgusted would be putting it mildly, when they found that the scandal of the case was not for their ears. Burns was unable to pay the fine and costs, so he is now engaged in thumping it out on the stone pile at the county jail. Curtis declares that the case will be followed shortly by another, in which Mrs. Curtis will be required to gie good arid sufficient reasons why she should not be divorced from her in jured spouse. WILL USE NEW BALLOTS. Greater Portion of Them Devoted to Explanations. County Clerk Wright and his assist ant, Oscar Swayze are at work prepar ing the ballots for distribution for the election Tuesday. The new ballot law makes many odd provisions. According to the law a cer tain heading must be printed across the entil e top Vf the general ballot. Then a certain space must be devoted to the party emblems and the circle for vot ing the straight ticket. The result this year is that there is a ballot large enough for a stray notice to be posted on and all except one line at the bot tom where the names of the candidates for county commissioner appear is de voted to an explanation to the voter, the party emblems and the circle.

MISS ZELMA RAWXSTOH, Many letters are received daily, similar to the following one from Miss Kawlston, from prominent singers and artists who use noth ing but DR. BULL'S COUGH SYKUP to prevent hoarseness and cure coughs. Whenever I have had a cough or been troubled with hoarseness during my profes sional career I have alwavs used DR. tHjLiLi a COUGH SYRUP, which has worked like magic. It cures my hoarseness and my coughs almost ins-tantly. This is the kind of medicine I must have so as to keep my voice in condition, as you know my work as a male impersonator is very hard ou the voice and throat. I have never found anything that cures as quickly and as thoroughly any anec- tion of the throat as UK. in. 1.1. f I hi on SYRUP. Very truly, ZELMA KAWLSTON, 74 W. asth St.. New York City.

For fifty years singers, actors, public speak ers and clergymen have used UK. i L LL'h COUGH SYliUP to prevent hoarseness and to cure coughs and colds and all affections of the throat on account of the absolute security they feel in its curative qualities. Thousands of doctors prescribe DR. BULL'S COUGH SYRUP and many of the prominent hospi tals use it exclusively for hoarseness, asthma, bronchitis, coughs, colds, grip, influenza and consumption. Be sure you get ths genuine. See that the trade-mark, " Bull's Head," is on the pack age. Cheap substitutes are injurious. Large bottles 25c. at all druggists. FREE.

Stone, the American missionary, appear to be going on so successfully that her release seems now to be only a matter of days.

The day If celebrated the same as on Sunday, and all members of the church who may, obey an unwritten injunction to refrain from labor. The celebration of the feast of All Saints' day is in honor of the unknown saints who perished during the days of Roman persecution. The calendar of the church includes holy days for the known saints, and the day set apart as All Saints' day is to give reverence to all those who perished but who are unknown so far as historical record is known. Tomorrow is All Souhs' day, and prayers for the repose of all souls of the Christians who perished in the Roman persecution will be offered. On Sunday afternoon the services will be held at the Catholic cemetery west of town, when members of the church will go to the cemetery to pray for the de- Crl?mBalS!igI Each time the United States Government has officially tested the baking powders the report has shown Dr. Price's Cream v Baking Powder to be of superlative leavening strength, free from alum, abso lutely pure and wholesome.

It is for the welfare of tho souls of those known to be in purga tory that the prayers are offered at the cemetery. This ceremony Is carried out once each year, usually the first Sunday In November.
