Helps Man Without a "Pali" to Position. A PRETTY ROMANCE. Senator Barton's Niece is a Cen tral Figure. Why G. 31. Arthur Went to Washington. Love and Politics rarely get together In the same crowd. They are as shy of one another as a Small boy is of a wash basin. But there are exceptions. It takes ex ceptions, you know, to prove a rule. This is one of the exceptions. It's a story of how the little god with the bow and quiver got ahead of the politicians. Everybody around the state house knows Miss Luella Rudolph. She was until a few weeks ago stenographer for SFrank Nelson, state superintendent of public instruction. She is bright and (handsome and capable, and consequent ly was admired by everybody. Among her admirers was one who was favored above the rest. His name was G. M. Arthur, and he held a clerk ship in the Santa Fe offices. He gen erally found it convenient to be going Miss Rudolph's way when office hours were over, and there were bicycle rides and moonlight walks, and all that sort of thing. Miss Rudolph is also Senator Bur ton's niece. Consequently when Senator Burton went back to Washington a few weeks ago he saw that Miss Rudolph g-ot a good place In one of the depart ments. She deserved it, though, for she is an exceptionally competent stenog rapher. All of her friends regretted to Bee her leave Topeka, especially the Broung man In the Santa. Ke offices. . Bat ri&iit bee i whera the UtU sod with the bow and quiver scored. Mr. Arthur became a candidate for a government position. He didn't know anything about practical politics He didn't claim to be able to control the delegation from his ward nor to carry fifty votes in his vest pocket He didn't even set up a claim to any "intlooence" on convention day His political career consisted solely in going to the polls and voting on election days when he felt like it, and it is currently reported that he was more apt to vote the Populist ticket than enything else. But Mr. Arthur had a stronger pull than any of these things could have given him. If a hundred stalwart Re publicans from even the Seventh dis trict had written letters in his favor it might have availed him nothing. But when the little god with the bow and quiver went to work to land that job it was promptly landed, and Senator Burton recommended Mr. Arthur for a good departmental clerkship In Wash ington. And this recommendation did not meet with the fate of some others that have been sent to Washington. Mr. Arthur had no previous record to rise up and stare him in the face. No avenging Chilcott played the nemesis NOW IS THE TIME Seasons change. We can't change them. We can't pre vent the coming of cold and i v aamp airs. But we can prevent the sore throats, the coughs, colds and lung troubles by taking Scott's Emulsion. Nothing does more to make the tender throat tough. Nothing gives such strength to weak lungs. Don't take risks when it's easy to be safe. Now is the season for taking Scott's Emulsion in season. W.'ll send you a little to try, if 70 Kk. SCOTT & IIOWKE, 40s Fcarl (trui. Kc York. act on him. No one even started an endless chain letter system to block his appointment. In fact nobody knew any thing about it until nearly a month af ter toe had gone to Washington. It has been just about 30 days since Mr. Arthur went on to Washington to take up his duties in his new place, which is said to be much better than the place he held in the Santa JFe of fices. Nobody grudges it to him ex cept some of the fellows who have been waiting around for months for Senator Burton to get their names on the pay roll in some way or other. The story has just leaked out this week, and now the fellows who have been waiting for a reward "in recogni tion of party services" are furious. They think it is a shame that a young man who has usually voted the Popu list ticket should be given a job while many of the faithful are still standing in line waiting for a chance at the pie counter. Everybody else Is glad Mr. Arthur landed. It is refreshing to know that Cupid has a pull as well as the politic ians when toe chooses to exercise it. FALSE IMPRISONMENT. Damage Suit Filed Against Sheriff of Rica County. Hutchinson, Kan., Nov. 28. Thomas H. Benton has begun a damage suit here against the sheriff of Rice county, T. F. Hicks. The petition alleges that Ben ton was arrested soon after the Bushton bank robbery in September, 1900, and was held for over a month in jail, during which time he was unable to communi cate with his family in Texas. It appears that Benton was arrested on suspicion and was turned loose later. He asks the court for a judgment of $1,000 against the defendant. Slow Bat Sure. London, Nov. 28. A dispatch to the Times from Pretoria says there are 70 recognized commandoes and bands of Boers ranging in strength from 50 to 400 men. in the tield, of which 23 are in the Transvaal. 31 in' the Orange River colony and 13 in Cape Colony. Tne task of run ning them down must necessarily be slow but it is sure, and there is no ground for Impatience. Lord KitchenerSs striking arm at present only amounts to -43,000 men and the more he is enabled to put In the field the sooner the end will come. Washington, Nov. 28 Mrs. May B. Ellison, of El Reno, O. T., has been ap pointed a matron and Samuel Tucker, of Pleasant, Kan., appointed a farmer at the Red Moon Indian school, O. T., and Miss Katie Kennedy, of Holycross, Kan., has been appointed a laundress &t the Sac and Fox school, O. T. POUCEJOJTINGS. Jointists Are Removed From Cause For Thanksgiving. Notorious Ewing Resort Is Raided, by Officers. MR. IIATCII IS GONE. Druggist Fails to Appear in Court. His Bond Not Good and He Is Not Expected Back. FEW jointists were cut off from their only cause for thanksgiving last night. The cold cruel policemen began the seance by grabbing tne happy Ewing fam ily on Smoky Row. Only one small bottle was found, but Joseph and "Nan" were book ed for "selling and "maintaining" and hauled to the coop. While Mrs. Ewing was evap orating a heavy jag her friends, Hattie Maybee and J. Hobbs, took pos session of the Ewing residence , and started something akin to a rough house. They were assisted in this pleasant little t diversion by Mr. C. Strouse who was booked in a short time by Officers Botham and Black for sell ing and maintaining. Hobbs and the Maybee woman were slated for disor derly conduct, and thus the house by the raging Kaw was suppressed for the night. Two girls from Junction City, Etta and Pearl Mnin, who were gathered in 19 street walkers several days ago, were collected again last night. They were making efforts to get out of town, but the police would allow nothing of the kind. Mary Wells was another of the un thankful. She was booked on two charges, selling liquor and keeping a disorderly house. Chas. Wells and Henry Paes were present, so they were taken as inmates. Fred S. Raymond, in full uniform, confessed to being a deserter, and is worth $30 net to Officer Hutton, who saw him first. The court held a short session this morning to dispose of the Fannie Rodg ers case. The case had been adjourned until thi3 morning, and the court dis posed of another chance to be thankful by fining her $200 and 60 days in jail for selling liquor. The court also took time to make some pointed remarks HORSE BUCKED. Rider Severely Hurt. A Cincinnati man visiting in Texas, on a ranch, was thrown from a horse and so severely injured that his life was despaired of. He takes pride in telling how food saved his life. The heavy drUgs given seriously injured his stomach and' as he says"It seemed I would soon have to starve in the mid&t of plenty. My stomach refused to di gest food and I ran down from 165 to 133 pounds. When my appetite failed I was ready to give up, and it looked as though I would soon 'wink out.' One morning the foreman's daughter brought in what she called a splendid food and it turned out to be Grape Nuts. , A little skeptical I ate it and found it was good, and just the kind of food I could keep on my stomach which had been almost burned out by the vile drugs. I felt that I had obtained a new lease of life for improvement set in at once. A week later I was weighed and had gained two pounds. My weight has since steadily increased by the constant use of Grape-Nuts, and I am now bet ter than I have been in years, as my friends will all testify. In all kinds of athletic sports I notice I have a greater reserve force than for merly, for which I am indebted to Grape-Nuts. Taken in moderation it is the greatest food of its kind in the world, being equally well adapted to athletes and invalids." Paul Alwin Platz, 1906 Btgtow Ave, Mt Auburn, Cinrtnjifttl. (X about the fashion of bringing appeal bonds to the court already fixed and needing only the signature of the court. When the A. S. Hatch case was called yesterday Mr. Hatch failed to appear, and his attorney, Hib Case, could give no information as to his whereabouts. It was then discovered that the bond which he had given was "N. G." He had appeared on it and made his plea, and had been given a chance to go out and secure a "rehash" of the first bond. The bond was void after the first ap pearance of the defendant, but the court had no idea that the druggist would jump the town, which appears to be the case. It was the non-appearance of Mr. Hatch which led the court to say in a "that settles it" tone of voice: "Hereafter this court will take no bond which has been prepared be fore it is brought to court, and in no in stance will a defendant be allowed, no matter who it is, to go out and seek bond, but will be detained by the offi cers pending the appearance of a bond which is made out before an officer hav ing authority to certify the same." If Mr. Hatch has not escaped, he has missed a good chance, and has injured the cause of "King Alco" by starting the wheels of justice in a new direction. Hereafter the druggist will be locked up like an ordinary bum as soon as his bond expires. Mayor Hughes is responsible for a barrel of apples which arrived at the police station at 10 o'clock. The mayor couldn't see his way clear to treat the entire force to turkey, but didn't forget them in the shuffle. KENNEDY MAY BE IN. Burlington Man Suggested as Candi date For Congress. State Senator J. A. Kennedy, of Bur lington, is preparing to get into -the Fourth district congressional race against Congressman Miller. His home papers announce that politicians in va rious parts of the district, as well as a good many Coffey county Republi cans, are urging him to get into the campaign. He has not yet said that he would do so, but it is not probable that he will turn down a cry from the peo ple for his candidacy. Senator Kennedy's candidacy might seriously embarrass the Burton faction in the Fourth district. It has been un derstood that the Burton Influence stands behind Congressman Miller for a renomination, and this is one thing that gives Mr. Miller his confidence. Sen ator Kennedy has been a Burton man from the start, and made his fight for state senator largely along those lines. He was elected by a good majority over a strong opposition. The Burton ele ment is under obligations to him, and could scarcely turn against him in case he determines to run for congress. For this reason Senator Kennedy's candidacy would still further compli cate the Fourth district situation and make it very interesting for Congress man Miller in the southeast part of the district. He would have the united sup port of his county, Coffey, behind him, and very likely Woodson county, which joins Coffey on the south. He would also exert a strong influence in Osage, on the north, in case some Osage coun ty man doesn't join in and make it a free-for-all. NORTH TOPEKA. rTave items for this column with Kim ball Printing Co., 912 North Kansas Ave.l Rev. J. S. Glendennlnp will preach Fri day evening at the Shorey achool house. J. W.

Crushed stone is being hauled from the city and county jail to the foot of North, Sardou avenue to be used In making con crete for the tilling in of the tabular iron pipe for the Sardou avenue bridge. Mark Putnam and Mr. Gillespie went down on North Sardou avenue yesterday to the P-nnis tract timber with their guns to go shooting. They returned later in the day tired, hungry and empty handed. Joseph M. Pollum, road supervisor of Soldier township, is busy with teams and men working and improving North Sar dou avenue from the Ennis line to the river. He is also putting in stone culverts where necessary. The street is eighty feet side. Owing to a rush of business at the north side industries, Foreman Young and his men will not keep Thanksgiving, but will switch all day in order to keep up with the work, stopping only long enough Jto eat turkey. Frank P. Baker of the New Era de partment store has resigned his position and will leave Topeka in a da.y or two to take charge of a stock of general mer chandise for William Trussler at Enk ridge, Kan. Mr. Baker for five years lived at that town and worked for the Mudge Mercantile company.
