In 20 rounds of the prettiest and fastest fighting ever seen in Seattle, Rufe Turner could not knock Perry Queenan out, and as Perry at no hop of the road had a look-in to knock Turner out. Referee Kane de cided the bout a draw, with the usual reeult. some maintaining; that the black boy was robbed of a decision and others contending that no other decision coma be rendered. From the fifteenth round until the close Perry's face looked like a piece of beef well cboppd. He looked bad, but one can not tell from Queea an's appearance just what his real con dition was. He was clearly outclasses by Turner In cleverness. Queenan on the other hand is a bulldog in the ring. Ua baa to be knocked out before he knows he is licked. He took four swift jabs on the jaw in the sixteenth round, coming so close together that they eoulo. hardly be counted, but aside from puff ing out his cheeks a little more than naval, be did net seem to mind it.

Secretary Coburn Attributes It i to Shortage- of Corn. ISSUES A NEW REPORT. - 1 - Shows Bow Farmers Sacrificed Their Cattle. Milk Cows Show Lens Decrease Than Other Stock. The unfavorable weather during a part of the summer of 1901 and its ac companying temporary inconveniences have been forgotten by the majority of Kansans, but the folly of the untimely haste at that time in disposing of mucn valuable breeding and other stock at unjustifiable sacrifices before checked by the turn for the better, is reflected by the state's livestock statistics gathered by assessors for the year ending March, 1902, returned to the state board of agri culture. To the conditions suggested may be largely attributed the decrease in the aggregate value of animals slaughtered or sold for that purpose, amounting to over 94 million dollars, or about 16 per cent, and also the decrease shown in the numbers of the various animals, except mules and asses. Of course the short age of corn in 1901,especially in the live stock and meat-producing region of the central west seriously curtailed the business of fattening stock for the shambles." For swine probably more than any other stock corn is the chief ration when on full feed; its scarcity and high price, and fewer grain-fed cat tle for them to follow during the last half of the year apparently caused a tendency to sell off swine more closely than other livestock. This Is confirmed by the statistics, swine showing the largest percentage of decrease in num bers, viz.: over 32 per cent, or nearly 687,000 head. The total number reported on hand in March, 1902, was 1,427,309 against 2,114,201 the previous year. The decrease is confined to no par ticular part of the state, but occurs in a greater or less degree in practically every county. It la a noticeable coin cident that many of the foremost corn counties are among those sustaining the heaviest decreases. For instance, Jewell has less swine than one year ago by nearly 40 per cent., or 27,000 head-, Marshall, 22 per cent., or 11,000 head; Washington, 62 per cent., or 57,235 head Nemaha. 14 per cent., or 8,000 head; Re public, 40 per cent., or 23,526 head; Smith, 40 per cent., or 20.000 head; Nor ton, 70 per cent., or 38,819 head; Phil Hps, 31 per cent., or 8.878 head; and Brown, 11 per cent., or 4,746 head; all adjoining counties in the northern tier. Reno, Sedgwick, Butler, Cowley, Sum ner and Greenwood, neighbors and pre mier corn counties in the southern part of the state, each show a heavy de crease. Over 41 per cent, of the state's decrease is in these 15 counties. Wash ington county reports the largest falling off in numbers, or 67,235, and Norton probably the largest percentage of loss, about 70. Nemaha has the most hogs, 48,300 head, and Morton the fewest, 36. Cattle other than milch cows have de creased 2.4 per cent., or 63,706 head, leav ing the total number 2.550,180. As shows, by the records, this year and last are the onlv times other cattle reached the two and a half million mark, and notwith standing the decrease this year's num ber is the largest ever reported, save 1901. Ninety-six counties each have 10. 000 head or more, ranging from 10.314 in Stevens to 57.584 in Butler, although the latter has less by 19,000 head, which is the heaviest decrease reported for any one county. Forty-eight counties show increases, the largest beng 9,282 in Chey enne, and the smallest. 140. in Decatur. Including the milch cows the state has 3,341.978 cattle. ' Milch cows show less loss than any other live stock, or 12,154; this is prob ably owing to the greater abundance of milk-producing feeds, such as alfalfa and brans from wheat, and the excel lence of the modern Kansas dairy herds the elimination doubtless having been only of the inferior animals, unprofit able, if at all, at times when feeds rule high In price. Also many owners were in a measure obligated to furnish cream eries with a milk supply, the fulfill ment of which required that the number of their cows be not depleted, and per haps actually increased, even if the owners might have been for a time otherwise inclined. Thus it is that the best dairy herds were maintained in tact and their owners, are now enjoy ing increased profits as a result As a matter of fact, 50 counties show an in crease in the number of milch cows. aggregating 31,010, among which are Cowley, with a gain (the largest) of 1. 989 head. Labette 1.705, Pawnee 1,637, Sumner 1.614, Rooks 1.460, AJchison 1,576, Decatur 1,213, and Lincoln" 1.130. The total number for the state March 1 was 792,000. Thirty-eight counties, with one or two exceptions, all in the western half of the state, each have 10.000 head or more; six having over 15,000 each, ranging to 17,051. the highest number, in Sedgwick, and the smallest is 180 in Morton. Even with the loss sustained WORK. Received by 9:00 o'clock any morning', we finish I the same day if desired without extra charge.

The number of horses enumerated Is 811,605; of mules and asses 95.714, the largest tn the history of the state. Sedgwick is the foremost horse county, having 20. 505, while Sumner more than any other adheres, to mules and asses and has 3,125 head. Since 1875, exceot in 1895, the number of sheen has never been so small as now a total for the state of 136.613 v as against 183,091 dogs to harass them, which may in considerable measure ac count for the decrease. It is much to the discredit of the state that her sheep are outnumbered by dogs their unre lenting enemies, working for their de struction day and night, especially when nature has so admirably fitted Kansas for the profitable production of bath the fine wools and mutton breeds. For one county return is made of 2.133 dogs and one sheep. Wallace county baa the most sheep, or 9.158. .

INVITES A COUNTY. President Booserelt Will Enter tain at Sagamore Hill. Oyster Bay, N. T., Aug. 30. On invi tation of President Roosevelt the citi zens of Nassau county will visit Oyster Bay and Sagamore Hill on September 15. The Invitation will be read from 135 pulpits in the county next Sunday, it having been forwarded to all the min isters. The ministers here today issued a call to the citizens of the village to take steps to properly receive the vis itors, and decorate the village. A pub lic meeting has been called by them for next Tuesday afternoon, when tSs plans will be elaborated. The plan which has thus far taken a firm bold is to have the village oae mass of American Sags. At Sagamore Hill the reception Is planned to last from three until six o'clock, but the hours may be extendej owing to the size of the crowds. The secret officers will handle the crowds there, aided by New York detectives If they can be obtained. MISS K. B. WHITTLESEY. Interesting Sketch of Well Known Musician. It is somewhat remarkable that a quiet little woman closely engaged within the four walls of a studio from twelve to fourteen hours a day with no opportunity whatever for mingling with the outside world should yet be able to draw to herself such an extended circle of sincere and loving friends as has Miss Karolyn B. Whittlesey of this city, to whom the tribute of a benefit concert at the auditorium is to be tendered on September i. For years at the College of the Sisters of Bethany she built up and maintained a standard of music so high and superior that the most intel ligent and cultivated musical people of this city and state know was invaluable to the schooL For the past two years, however. Miss Whittlesey has had her own studio in the Stormont building where the little gray-haired woman has bravely kept up her work from an in valid's chair. Miss Whittlesey had the misfortune to injure her knee in a fall on the pave ment nearly two years ago, from which she has suffered very greatly at var ious times and been more or less crip pled ever since, requiring to be carried up and down to the studio daily. Eight weeks ago she was taken to Christ hos pital to be operated on for appendicitis. The operation was considered success ful but she was in such frail and over worked condition previously that a suc cession of unfortunate hindrances to her recovery have developed up to the pres ent time, when she still lies prostrated and suffering at her cottage on Sixth avenue, attended by a trained nurse. The most profound and loving sym pathy has been awakened among her friends and pupils, and it is certainly a fitting thing that they should employ her own beloved art music as the means to bring her both substantial aid and a fuller assurance of their apprecia tion of her work and worth. Her own well known generosity and enthusiasm can scarcely be matched, but that her unaefishneas and devotion as a teacher have been appreciated as highly as her ability and culture this spontaneous co operation of pupils and parents, singers, artists and a generous public surely demonstrates.
