THE USE OF STRATEGY Russian Military Officer an Interested Spectator. Only Representative of a For eign Power Present. Junction City. Kaa., Oct. 3. It was late ' Thursday afternoon before the weary but enthusiastic Kansas militia regiments marched Into camp following the maneuvers of the morning, in which they hud taken such an active an-t creditable part. From Brig. Gen. Hughes to Stub" Quackenbush, order ly at Col. Metcalf's headquarters, there was a feeling that the Kansas militia men had been vested with a new dig nity. They had participated with the regulars in movements involving the establishment and defense of a line of outposts, and all the movements were executed in a manner such as to call praise from all the officers, not only among the national guard troops, but Irom the regulars as well. The Kansas camp has become a pop ular rendezvous for visitors. Hundreds "it people visited the camp. Among 'hose who called to pay their respecU is Lieut. Col. Paspopoff, military at , ohe of the Russian embassy at Wasti- 'on. Col. Faspopoff is the only rep- J tative of a foreign power present vhe maneuvers, rri discussing thern ay he said: " I enjoy the maneuvers more, perhaps, than I can say. I am enamored of anything military, and in Washington we have nothing of the kind. I ride to everything that I can eee here, and I assure you the maneu vers are most highly instructive. There are some things about the army of the ITnited States that calls for unceasing wonder on the part of every foreign power. Before the American-Spanish war you had an army scarcely number ing 25,000. In ninety days you had an army four times that number, and in fix months an army of half a million. IWe wonder how you do it, and how bin an army your country, if it was called upon to. do so, could raise. In our coun try we maintain a large standing army, and have but few outside of the regular troops that would be available for war service. But It seems that every man In this ceuntry can throw aside his ordi nary vocation and become a model sol dier on very short notice. The develop ment of the citizen-soldier is the solu tion of the problem of how to raise an Immense army on short notice. I see any number of men who fought forty years ago in your big war and again in the war of 1S9S. Their enthusiasm is not exceeded by that of the younger soldiers." Col. Faspopoff is making ex tensive reports of the operations. The problem for today involves move ments of the greatest interest. The na tional guard and regular troops will ap pear in advance and rear guard move ments with simulation of attack. Forces will assemble near the reserva tion pump house, another on what is nown as the Harvey road, and the on Three Mile creek. is an enthusiastic delegation m the national guard troops of Ne braska at Camp Root, including- Briga dier General P.

This renders necessary the gathering of suprdies at points where they can be securely guarded and can Ije sent for ward tr armies in the field, the region in which such points are established be ing termed the base. The base may be a single jioint, but it is generally a good defensive line, such as a river or chain of mountains. The base of operations and the base of supplies generally coin cide, though in some canes, notably when Sherman was conducting his op erations in the Carolinas, the bases and lines of supply were different from those of operations. "People not familiar with military af fairs seem to think that armies can be moved as readily as pieces on a chess board. All this is erroneus. The move ments of armies and portions of armies are dependent entirely upon the ques tion of supply. Where a general gives one thought to the enemy In his front he probably bestows a hundred thoughts on the question of how his army is to be supplied in his various movements. "Strategy .always culminates in tac tics, for the bpst strategical operations are useless if the enemy is not defeated in battle. In the Salamanca campaign Marmont had completely outgeneraled Wellington and had placed him in a position where defeat meant ruin, but Wellington extricated himself from his perilous position by a brilliant exhibi tion of tactical genius and Marmont's skillfull idans all came to naught. "The essential principles of strategy will always remain the same, but the introduction of railroads and telegraphs has caused some changes in the appli cation of these principles. TMssemina tion of news by the press of different countries and the means of telegraph ing such news to the different armies make it impossible to execute plans with such secrecy as was formerly often the case. There will be less secrecy about operations than was formerly the case, and it is all the more essential that campaigns should be begun prop, erly and that the supplies for armies should be assured. "The qualities of the strategist, and the tactician are not always the same, nor always united. The strategist makes his plans in comparative quiet and leisure. The tactician must act on the field of battle, under circumstances of great "naMe and under conditions of personal danger. Sherman was a great strategist but not a great tactician. Wellington was a great tactician but not a great strategist. Napoleon was the greatest strategist and tactician the world has ever known. It is impossible to conduct a campaign without strategy, for strategy mana nothing more or less man me moving or armies In the thea ter of operations. "A good rule of st-vUegy is to con sider caretully the c ditions and sit uation of your army and of your ene my s army so far as known. Take it for granted that your enemy is going to do what he should do. Remember when you suffer loss that vour eneinv Is suffering aiso and that he has as much reason to be afraid of you as you are of him." THK PROGRAMME. The following is the programme as now ar.r.ODncrd for the balance of the maneu vers. It is subject, however, to change, but will probably be carried out practical ly as given.

General Frederick Funston was the central figure at the For est park reunion. He was introduced to an audience of 2,000 people, and was greet ed with applause as he advanced to the front of the platform. He said: "1 do not appear before you to make a speech. You know i made a speech in Denver six months ago, a::d h- , had a sore throat ever since. T merely want to thank you for the splendid greeting you have given me. I am delighted to meet my old friends and neighbors, and was pleased to leave the maneuvers at Fort Riley to be with you for a short time. I thank you." An opportunity was given for all to shake hands with the general, and the whole audience filed past and took his hand. organized last night by members of the Ave schools. The arts, engineering, phar macy, medics and line arts students gath ered at the court house and elected the following student officers: President, Geo. L.

William Lamont, a Santa Fe freight brakeman, was killed while attempting to make a coupling on the local freight in this city at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon. It seems the draw heads were not in order, and Lamont went between the cars to make the fasten ing, when his head was catight between the cars and mashed. He has a wife and two children living in Argentine. She Blames Her Father-in-Law. Emporia, Kan., Oct. 3. Louisa Owen Giger has filed suit against her father-in-law, Henry Uiger, in the district court of Lyon county, charging that the affections of her husband, Charles Giger, were alien ated by her father-in-law. This suit is a sequel to one filed two days ago by Charles Giger for a divorce. Henry Giger is a wealthy old farmer living three miles northeast of Emporia. A Shoot at Hutchinson. Hutchinson. Kan., Oct. 3. The gun club of this city will give a shoot on October 14, which will be open to all comers without handicap. There wilj be six events, each with fifteen blue rocks with $3 added to each event and three events at twenty blue rocks,. $5 added to each event. The shoot will be managed by Billy Allen. Students' Republican Club at K. IT. Lawrence, Kan., Oct. 3. The official Kansas University Republican club was THE FOOD OF THE ROMAN SOLDIER, The grand old Roman warriors who won many victories, subsisted chiefly on wheat carried in their knapsacks and parched when needed for use. The healthfulness of wheat as. a food has been greatly depreciated by modern milling processes that remove the life sustaining gluten in order to make flour white. Many seek to remedy this evil by eating cracked wheat or mush. In this form the starch is less than half cooked. The result is indigestion, anemia, constipation, nervous prostra tion, weak muscles, rheumatism and other maladies, For complete nutrition, the whole grain must be eaten. Toasted Wheat Flakes, sweetened with Malt Honey presents wheat in an entirely new form, each entire kernel being pressed into a thin delicate flake, thor oughly dextrinized, cooked and toasted, making it immediately digestible. W. C. T. U. at Manhattan. Manhattan. Oct. 3. The state convention of the w. C. T. U. is still in progress here with an attendance of about 200 out ef town delegates.

KANSAS HAS CASH. No More "Not Paid" Warrants to Be Out. "I do not think there will be any necessity for stamping state warrants not paid for want of funds," said State Auditor Cole today, as he glanced at the state's balance sheet for September 30 "There is almost $300,000 in the gen eral revenue fund, which is a good shewing, and I think with .what addi tional will come in this will be suffi cient to carry the state along until the next taxpaving time, and the state will be able to meet all of its bills without stamping any warrants not paid for want of funds." The total amount on hand in the state treasury, according to the books in the state auditor's office, was $."53,OT0.34 at the close of business on September 30. Since then a warrant for $,"i0,000 has been issued to Warden Jewett out of the binding twine revolving fund. The balance sheet for September 30 was aa follows: General revenue $294,9i6.o.

No matter how prosperous or well situated a man and his family may be. there is generally a desire to look on the old scenes, into the old faces, to renew the associations of early life, to get pos sibly a drink from the old well, to hear "the bells swing to and fro" Its music just the same, dear Tom, 'Twas twenty years ago." "Old Home" excursions are conse quently 7opular, and the Erie railroad has arranged special rates whereby per sons living west of Chicago can visit their friends in Ohio. Indiana and west ern Pennsylvania during October at exceptionally low cost. It Is believed that large numbers will take advantage of the offer, and that the coming month will witness many reunions of friends and old acquaintances who have not seen each other for years. October is a delightful season of the year in which to travel, and the Krle is one of the best roads in the country. For detailed Information address ,A. W.

Blaine Was Mistaken. D. W. Blaine and his press agent who have told how Blaine brought from 15, 000 to 30,000 harvest hands into the state to harvest the wheat crop, will get a jolt by the annual report of T. B. Gerow. director of the state free em ployment bureau. According to the re port, which includes the returns made by the seven railroads running into the wheat belt which granted a harvest rate, only 1.552 men purchased tickets to the wheat fields. The total number sent by the Kansas City and Topeka bureaus was 1,610. This does not include all the outside harvest hands, because some beat their way on the trains or went in with wagons, but Mr. Gerow says that from the reports sent him by county clerks the total number was about 5.500. He says: "A rciiort was sent out from central Kansas late last March," said Mr. Ge row, "to the effect that 20,000 men and 7,000 teams would be needed in the wheat fields. This department sent out inquiries shortly after that time to the county clerks of 50 of the counties which raised the greater part of the wheat produced in HDl and 42 of them replied that they would need no outside help. They' also informed the department that . . , j, T ! TJ. wheat was in a very oau conuii-ioo. be tween that time and June 1 copious rains fell in the wheat belt and another inquiry was sent out June 6. The clerks were asked at that time whether any change had been made in the conditions as ..reported to the department earlier in the vear. "In answer to the second inquiry ten county clerks declared that the farmers in their counties -would need from one hundred to fifteen hundred men, making a total of 5,500. A harvest rate was ob tained on the railroads at that time. The tickets were on sale Tuesdays and Thursdays and were good until July 15. I think it was a mistake not to have made the tickets purchasable at any time during the harvest season, as many of the men did not care to wait until these special days when they ap plied on intervening days and they eith er beat their way to the fields or paid full fare. It is impossible to estimate the number of men which went in these wavL but from reports received here it is believed that fully 5.500 men from outside the wheat belt found employ ment there during the harvest." A New Plow Trust Proposed. Chicago, Oct. 3. Another attempt la to be made to combine the prinicipal plow manufacturers in the country into one organization, two previous efforts in that line having failed. Charles ri Deere, of Moline, will be the leading fac tor in the new movement, according tc the Tribune. Copying the plans of last year's organization the new combination probably will be capitalized at $75,000, 000, of which one-half will be in 7 per cent, cumulative, the other half in com mon stock of a par value of ?100 per share. There is said to be a good pros pect that the prcject will be aecomp ljshed before the end of the year.

A Remedy Which Has Revolutionized tbe Treatment of Stomach Troubles. The remedy is not heralded as a won derful discovery nor yet a secret patent medicine, neither is it claimed to cure anything except dyspepsia, Indigestion and stomach troubles with which nine out of ten suffer. The remedy is in the form of pleas ant tasting tablets or lozenges, contain ing vegetable and fruit essences, pure aseptic pepsin (government test,) golden seal and diastase. The tablets are sold by druggists under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Many interesting experiments to test the digestive power of Stuart's tablets show that one grain of the active principle contained in them Is sufficient to thoroughly digest 3.00'J grains of raw meat, eggs and other wholesome food. Stuart's Tablets do not act upon the bowels like after-dinner pills and cheap cathartics, which simply irritate and In flame the intestines without having any effect whatever in digesting food or cur ing indigestion. If the stomach can be rested and as sisted in the work of digestion it will very soon recover its normal vigor, as no organ is ao much abused and over worked as the stomach. This is the secret, if there is any secret, of the remarkable success of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a remedy practically unknown a few years ago and now the most widely known of any treatment for stomach weakness. This success has been secured entirely upon its merits as a digestive pure ana simple because there can be no stomach trouble if the food is promptly digested. Stuart's Digestive Tablets act entirely on the food eaten, digesting it com pletely, so that it can be assimilated into blood, nerve and tissue. They cure dyspepsia, water brash, sour stomach, gas and bloatincf after meals, because they furnish the digestive power which weak stomachs lack and unless that lack is supplied it is useless to attempt to cure by the use of "tonics," "pills" and cathartics, which have absolutely no digestive power. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets can be found at all drug stores and the regular use of one or two of them' after meals will demonstrate their merit better than any other argument. . ... 5 -1 !
