While Lawers In Bontne Case
Argue a Point.

1.0. O. F. May Have Temple of
An effort Is belnar made by the mem
bers of the Independent Order of Odd
Fellows lodges in Topeka to regain pos
session and absolute control of the old
Odd Fellows temple at No. 623 Quincy
The temple was built over 15 years
ago by the members of Shawnee lodge
No. 1. The original cost of the property
was in excess of $40,000. The lodge rais
ed over $19,000 of this amount in cash
at the time the temple was built, bor
rowing the remainder from a wealthy
eastern money lender, and giving the
property as security. Being unable to
raise the remainder of the cost of the
building the mortgage was foreclosed,
and the possession of the building pass
ed to the easterner. The man who gain
ed possession of the building is now
The heirs to the property of this man
wishing to turn all the western property
of the estate into cash are anxious to
dispose of the property and have offered
it for sale for 513,000:
It is considered an excellent bargain,
and T. H. Bain is working up the pro
ject among the lodges of the city. An
arrangement will undoubtedly be effect
ed whereby the Odd Fellows will regain
possession of the temple.
A large number of lodge Items are
unavoidably crowded out until Mon
day. &1Q0RE GUILTY.
Winfield Jury Says Murder in
Winfield, Kas.. Dec 7. The jury In
the case of the state against Clyde
Moore has returned a verdict of mur
der in the second degree. Moore was
charged In connection with "Shorty"
McFarland of murdering Farmer Wilts
berger last summer for his money.
MUST PAY TAXES.
Knights and Ladies of Security JLose
Suit Over Topeka Building.
The supreme court today afflrraed
Judge Hazen's decision in both of the
cases involving the taxes of the Knights
and Ladies of Security, thereby decid
ing against the order. The officers of
the order claimed that the real estate
of the order, which consists of the Se
curity building on the corner of Sev
enth street and Kansas avenue, is ex
empt from taxation because the order
is a benevolent one. The supreme court
decided that it is not a benevolent or
ganization within the meaning of the
statute exempting the property of suen
organizations from taxation. In an
other suit the order claimed that its
invested funds were also exempt from
taxation on the same ground, but the
supreme court held that in addition to
being a benevolent organization, the in
come from its invested funds must be
used for the support of the organiza
tion, while in this order the investment
is applied towards the payment of death

Will Davis, a car repairer at the San
ta Fe, was struck above the eye by a
wrench Friday afternoon, and badly
cut. He went to the hospital and the
wound was sewed up.
In using medicines to stop pain, we
should avoid such as inflict injury on the
system. Opium, morphine, chloroform,
ether, cocaine and chloral stop pain by
destroying the sense of perception, the
patient losing the power of feeling. This
is a most destructive practice: it masks
the systems, shuts up. and. instead of re
moving trouble, breaks down the stomach
liver and bowels, and. if continued for a
length of time, kills the nerves and pro
duces local or general paralysis.
There is no necessity for using these
uncertain agents when a positive remedy
like RAD WAT' S READY RELIEF will
stop the moat excruciating pain quicker,
without entailing the least danger, in
either infant or adult.
It instantly stops the most excruciating
pains, allavs inflammation and cures con
gestion, whether of the lungs, stomach,
bowels or other glands or mucous mem

table, though there were many others
equally as fine.
One of the- very attractive tables was
that of Miss Marie Witwer. Several
of the beautiful vases were filled with
fragrant flowers, which showed them
oft to good advantage. One of the pret
tiest things was a thistle piece, which
she did under Fry.
