The company this season carries all its own scenery, carpets, furniture; ; in fact nothing but company property being used In any act. The show is a continuous one, as between acts high class specialties are introduced, so that there is no wait whatever from the time the curtain rises on the first act until it drops on the last. The prices are 25, 35 and 50 cents and 15 and 25 cents ut the special Wednesday and Saturday mat inees. Tonight the usual courtesy will be extended to tne women. "The Geisha," which for want of better terms, is styled a comic opera, rightly be longs to that class of musical comedy en tertainment wnicn includes b loroaora. "The Runaway Girl" and ether successes. It is what might be called an operatia iarce comedy, lnasmucn as tne aDunuance ot comedy and vaudeville specialties have a tendency to remove Its purpose several degrees from legitimate comic opera. It must not be concluded that on account of the light order of comedy with which "The Oeisha" is invested, the work is deficient from any serious aspect. The music of Paul Jones is classed among the most pop ular of late years. Seats are now selling at 25 cents to II for "The Geisha" at the Grand Wednesday night, when the Boston Bijou Opera company of 50 persons will - open its season of four nights and Satur day matinee.

Mushes and starchy cenrals buiM fires in babyj little body ' Keeps BaPy Cooi an4 perfcetfy NO Danger ; CHURCH RAIDS JOINT. Ballets and Blows in a Kansas City, Has., Saloon. Kansas City, Kas., Sept. 8. Four members of the Taylor Avenue M. i& ehurch, acting as deputy constables from the court of Justice J. M. Mason, attempted to serve a search and seizure warrant on a Joint" at Tenth street and Reynolds avenue shortly before 11 o'clock Saturday night. When the war rant was read a fight started. Paul Redmacher, a bystander, was shot in the left shoulder and hand and stabbed in the left breast. F. R. Gaw, the leader of the raiders, was struck in the mouth by an unknown person. The proprietor of the place. And Mathney, Immediately locked up the joint, with the four raiders and several others In side. Then the police were called. Later they took the four raiders with Red macher to headquarters. The court of Justice Mason is in Quin daro township, which adjoins Kansas City, Kas., on- the north. Eighteen months ago when the prohibition ele ment started a determined fight on the saloons they said the county attorney would not issue warrants on their com plaints, or assist them in enforcing the prohibition law. They went to Justice Mason's court and he issued all the war rants they asked for. It was an un usual proceeding and the city and county officers resented the interference of a justice of the peace from another township in the affairs of Kansas City. Kas. The service of the warrants was not interfered with, though various proceedings were had in the district and supreme courts in an attempt to annul the effects of the trials In Justice Ma son's court. In the most recent of these hearings in the supreme court neither side could claim a distinct victory, but Justice Mason claimed that his author ity to issue warrants for joints and jointkeepers in Kansas City, Kas., was affirmed. In the past these warrants have been served by the regular deputy constables of his court, and yesterday was the first occasion on which the church members themselves have asked for and received commissions as dep uties. - ' The citizens living in the neighbor hood of Tenth street and Reynolds ave nue have for many months objected to the saloon on that corner, and a few weeks ago it was closed. It opened for business again, and several members ot the Taylor Avenue M. E. church at Tenth street and Tenney avenue, two blocks north, took up the fight against it. Last Thursday afternoon F. R. Gaw, a school teacher, obtained a search and seizure warrant against the joint and Andy Mathney, its proprietor, from Jus tice Mason, justice Mason gave Mr. Gaw a commission as a constable to serve the warrant. At 9 o'clock Saturday night Mr. Gaw. with the warrant, met a dozen members of the Taylor M. E. church and pro ceeded to the joint. In the Dartv were the Rev. Clarence Williams, pastor of the church; John Harold, W. A. Allen, a mail carrier in Kansas City, Mo., Thomas McCain, Augustus Thomas, a painter, Claude Slagill, a newspaper carrier, and Thomas Wilson were also in the party. Mr. Gaw, as a commis sioned constable, deputized McClain, Thomas and Allen to assist him in raid ing the joint, and gave Allen a revolver. They went to the joint and Gaw, Slagill, Mcciain ana Allen and the Rev. Mr. Williams entered. Mr. Gaw walked to the bar and read the warrant to Math ney. The fight and shooting followed at onee. "As soon as I had read the warrant. said Mr. Gaw. "I saw a little man who had walked up to the bar and stood be hind it. point a revolver In my direc tion. There was a flash, and I felt something hit me in the face. At first I thought I was shot, and ran out of the saloon, most of the crowd with me. Then I found that some one had bit me in the mouth. I gave my revolver to Mr. Thomas, and he went into th sa loon. I remained outside until the of fleers arrived." As soon as Mr. Thomas had entered the saloon, Mr. Mathney locked the doors. Inside were Slagill, McClain, Allen and Thomas, of the raiding party, the little man, who Is said to have fired one shot, and two or three others. "While we were in there." - said Mr. Allen, and he was corroborated by the others, "the little fellow who we think did the shooting, repeatedly accused me of nrmg the shot. Redmacher, who seems to have been the only man hit, left the saloon before the doors were locked. He went out at a side door and walked around to the alley. Here he was found by a friend. ,H. H. Devme, who was the first to dis cover that he had been wounded. He had been with his friend early in the evening and came to the saloon to meet him again by appointment. He took Redmacher's band and found it covered with blood. "Is that you, kid?" Redmacher said. "Don't go away. I want you to come with me." "Paul could hardlv talk." said De vine last night. "He said the men who came in said they were going to arrest him,, and that the little man with the stiff hat shot him." The patrol wagon, with several offi cers, arrived at the saloon about 10:15 o'clock. After a short conversation with the jointkeeper Captain O'Brien ordered the arrest of Thomas. McClain and Allen, the three deputies locked In the saloon, and of Gaw. their leader. They and the wounded Redmacher were ta ken to police headquarters, and later to JNo. 2 police station on James street, They insisted -that they did not know who did the shooting. The revolver that Gaw rad given Thomas was found in his pocket. A small revolver of 22 cal iber was taken from McClain. He is only a boy, and said be carried the weapon for a bluff. Neither of these weapons had been discharged. No re volver was found on Allen. He Is small man, and wore a brown deiVy hat, and was pointed out by Devine as tne man- who had shot Redmacher, ac cording to the latter's description. Allen said he did not nre. Did you have a revolver when you went Into the saloon? he was asked. "That's to be proven," he answered. Afterwards, when Mr. Gaw said he had given revolvers to his deputies, Allen admitted that he had carried one into the saloon. A crowd of 200 men and boys gath ered at the city hall soon after the pris oners and the wounded man were brought there and many crowded Into the room, where the men were-beini booked. Among the crowd were many church people, and several mem hers of the Taylor Avenue M. E. church. Its pastor, the Rev: Clarence Williams, pressed up to the desk and spoke to the prisoners. When they were taken down stairs to the jail and were being further questioned by Captain O Brten. Mr, Williams entered and began to talk to nis mends. . - "You'll have to get out of here," said the captain. . s "But I'm their pastor"," exclaimed the Rev. Mr. Williams. "I don't care: nobody is allowed In here now if you push open that door again i n nave you locked up. too." Mr. Williams refused to answer "any questions and quickly left the station alter the rebuff by Captain O'Brien. None of the men connected with the saloon were arrested. - The church peo ple who gathered at the police station, and the men. arrested, denounced the police severely for this omission. Young McClain,- when examined by Captain O'Brien, was commanded to tell the truth, and say who did the shooting. --"I-told. you who I thought It was," he said; "the little fellow by the bar In the saloon. Why don't you arrest some of the fellows and ask them these ques tions? . They know, more about it than we do.". . . HAD A GOOD MEETING. Independent Forees Make Good Showing at Richland. A good showing was made at the Stahl and Stebbins meeting at Richland Saturday night. An enthusiastic crowd filled the G. A. R. hall there, and from forty to fifty were turned away . for lack of room. A. J. McDowell presided at the meeting. E. B. Cowgill was the first speaker. He made a plea for re spect for and obedience to the law. -, He was followed by Harold Parr, who sans two songs and a campaign song written especially for " this meeting. Harold Parr has made quite a reputation for himself, and is well known in Topekaka, where he has sung at numerous entei tainments. He made a hit with his songs at the meeting. C. R. McDowell made a short talk in which he explained the methods of the campaign and what had so far been done. He was followed by L. A. Steb bins, who read and discussed the state ments of both himself and Galen Nich ols, which were published In the State Journal, as to what each would do in event they were elected to be county attorney. He also read the editorial which was published in the Nichols organ ii. regard to the county attorneyship fight. He pointed out that the editorial made no claim that Nichols would do his duty and that they had never attempted to aerena nis record. Frank Stahl was the last speaker His talk was brief, and was almost wholly taken up with a statement as to how and why he was induced to make this race for sheriff. MEMORY OF JUDGE 11 OUT ON Shawnee County Bar Association . Adopts Resolutions. The Shawnee County Bar association met this morning in the district court room and received the resolutions pre sented by the committee, and resolved that they be spread upon the records of the Shawnee district court and copies be sent to The supreme court and the United States district court- Short talks were made by Judge S. H. Allen, Judge D. M. Valentine, David Overmyer and T. W. Harrison. The resolutions were as follows: The bar of Shawnee county Is again called upon to mourn the loss of one of its members. Not only has a prominent member of this bar been removed, but in the death of Albert H. Horton the state at large has sustained the loss of one whose life and work have distin guished him as a citizen, lawyer and judge for over forty years. Nature most generously bestowed on him a mind of rare clearness, force and capacity for Btudy and mental labor and great strength of character. At an early age he was placed in public positions of responsibility and honor. Whether called upon to act as city attorney of Atchi son, as judge of the Second judicial dls trlct, as United States district attorney for the district of Kansas, or as chief Justice of the supreme court of our state, he so conducted himself in each position as to honor the office and merit the approval of the people. as cnier justice or tne supreme court of Kansas he contributed much of value to the legal literature of the country, and for over eighteen years served his state with untiring industry and great ability. Many important questions in constitutional law and numerous cases involving property rights, which have established rules of property for Kan' j, were settled by the court during his term of service, and received the benefit of his clear, forceful and logical mind. . He was in no sense a technical lawyer or. judge, but looked rather to the broad principles of law and equity. which are the safer guides to right judgment. To the bar, his life is a worthy ex ample of the influence that rectitude of conduct, devotion to duty and high ap preciation of the dignity and responsi bility or the lawyer s office, have on a successful career In the legal profession. To the judges on the bench, he has left a commendable Example of clearness and conciseness in judicial opinions as wen as or raitnrui, ame ana impartial performance of the duties of one who occupies a place of such eminence and importance in the determination and protection of personal and public rights. Judge Horton was of a kindly nature. always interested in the welfare of his brethren of the bar, and especially con siderate in his treatment of the younger members of the profession. His mind remained unclouded and his interest in his profession continued till the last; and when he felt that the end of his days on earth was surely approaching, attachment to home and to Kansas, the state of his choice, caused him to hasten back to die, surrounded by his family. aima tne scenes ox nis userui lire. : We, the members of the bar of Shaw nee county, tender to his - widow and family our sincere and heartfelt sym pathy in their bereavement, fvrily re alizing that the vacancy he has left can never be filled in this life.

Wouldn't It make your friend mad to tell her she was in reality a drunkard, but many women are drunkards uncon sciously from the . use of coffee, which wrecks their nervous systems, and they seem unable to reform. A lady in Philadelphia, Pa., was very badly affected by coffee, causing her to have nervous prostration, and she finally woke up to the fact that she was in re ality a coffee drunkard. Her doctor had told her that she must give up coffee, tout she seemed unable to do It One day she read an advertisement about Potum Food Coffee, and thought she -would give it a trial. She says: "Coffee had .such a strong hold on me that at first X did not make it aU Pos tum, but added a tablespoonful of coffee. After a while I quit putting coffee in at ui, ana soon rouna i ieit much better. Continued use stopped my headaches and biliousness, and I soon noticed that my nervousness had evidently left me for good. Now I would not use any thing else, and the smell of coffee makes me siefc. I am using your Grape-Nuts also, and think it a wonderful food. I lately cured an attack of indigestion by eating nothing but Grape-Nuts and drinking Poetum for two weeks, and now I can eat solid food and feel no distress. -Name given by Poatum Co.
