Albert Simons, a Kentuckv horseman, has cost John A. Brake SiU.TTO to date by claiming the hit ter's horses from races. "Drake told his friends in Chicago that he would drive me off the turf if it cost, him SleO0 to do so." Simons said today at Aqueduct. "Racing horses is my means of earning a living. If he drives me off the turf I might starve. I am not anxious to have this condition confront me, so I am fighting Drake to retain my occupa tion as a horse owner and trainer. "The trouble began at Chicago last sum mer. Drake had a horse called Conun drum entered in a selling race at a low hgure. 1 thought he was a cheap horse and when he won I hid him up.' This made Drake angry and he vowed he would have revenue. Subsequently I ran my horse Vineennes in a race. He proved to be bettor than the other horses and won easily. Drake men 'boosted' him up and took, him away from me, for he raised his value beyond the price I could pay for him, "That part of the transaction was all right. It is all in the game to bid up horses in selling races and I had no ob jection to make because he secured my horse. What I did mind was Mr. Drake's nss rtion that he would drive me off the turf. "When I heard this I made up my mind to cost him S100.0C0 before he accomplished his purpose. So I immediately started in to bid his horses up in selling races. I mean to continue this warfare to the end and make it cost him the ilOO.000 that he is so willing to spend in order to gratify his revenge." SCHREIBER BEST WINNER. Led the List at the St. Louis Track This Season. St. Louis, Nov, 4. Barney Pehreiber, the master of Woodlands, had a great season with his stable about St. Louis in l'J02. His horses won over $25,000. Otis, the Derby winner, and Sohwalbe and Geheimness were the principal raoncv getters of the Sehreiber string. T. P. Hayes and W". W. Iarden & Co. rank next in the list of winning owners. Both these horsemen had their best luck last spring. Darden & Co. cleaned up in great shape when the fair grounds opened last May. with Sidney Walker, winner of the Kindergarten stakes, and A. D. Gibson, winner of the Memorial handicap. Both these trained off when Darden shipped from here to Washing ton nark, and have been on the shelf ever since. Hayes won most of his money with Lady Strathmore, Crimean, Bueoleuth and Jordan before shipping from here to the northern circuit. Since their re turn neither Hayes nor Darden has fared so well. Hayes, by the way, sold Crimean and Buoeleuth to Barney Sehreiber the other day for S3, 000. He also sold the 2-year-old Ed Layson to Darden & Co., and the 2-year-old Pathos to P. J. Nolan, (defiant was the chief bread winner of the. Smith stable at the fair grounds. This filly captured the Debutante and Junior championship stakes last spring. Next to I3arney. Sohreiber's Geheimness, she was the best fillv "developed here this season. Smith & Co. shipped east when the fair grounds closed last June, and have been racing on the metropolitan tracks ever since. .' Terry Can't Do the Weight. New York. Nov. 4.

"Terrible" Terry has Iarn d to dress and act the part of a peddler of the Ghetto, and at such will deliver a monolotrue in "The Peddler," a play by Hal Kfidin which AVelch is to open at the Fourteenth Street theater around the holidays. He has learned the gestures and dialect of the Ghetto with rare clever ness, and those who have Been him in the part say that it is almost impossible to realize that it is only an Impersonation. Like Welch, Terry will not caricature the Hebrew race, but merely live the lite of a peddler on the stage. AMERICANS HAD BEST OF IT Figures Show Its Attendance Was 585,801 More Than the National. Chicago, Nov. 4. In point of attendance on the game of the major leagues last season, the American league had ail the best of it, and had no really poor cities, as was tYie case with the National league at Philadelphia and Boston. The smallest home attendance was at the league games in Philadelphia, where for several seasons the banner crowds had been seen. The St. Louis club drew the smallest number of people to a home series at Philadelphia, while the largest attendance was in the same city, where Boston drew 74,000 people at the American games. The clubs supposed to give out the cor rect attendance were those at Phila delphia, Pittsburg, Washington, Boston Americans, Cleveland and Detroit. At New York the crowds were estimated, and usually high. The Boston league gave cut at least one-fifth more than was pres ent. Brooklyn did the same. The St. Louis clubs swelled the attendance at least 10 per cent. Cincinnati often swelled, especially with the crowds present. The following shows the total attend ance of both leagues: Total American league attendance. .2,172,724 Total National league attendance. .1.5S6.923 In favor of American league 585.S01 Boston After Bonner. Boston, Nov. 4. Frank Bonner is the man the Boston National league Is after to take the place of Herman Long.

This Week Closes Season's Racing on New York Courses. New York, Nov. 4. While this week will witness the close of the season's racing in New York, what bids fair to be a most brilliant autumn meeting will commence at the Penning' track, Wash ington, on Monday, November 10, and will be continued for eighteen days. The Washington Jockey club has just completed an entirely new track, the soil of which is favorable to fast time without rendering the racers liable to breaking down. Other improvements have been made, so that when metro politan visitors are invited to compare the course with those around New York, Washington will not suffer by the com parison. In addition to fiat racing the Wash ington Jockey club has made prepara tions for some attractive open steeple chases, as well as cross country event;-. At the time of the year when these races are run Washington is just, begin ning to see its cosmopolitan winter resi dents assemble by thousands, and so ciety will do its full share toward mak ing the steeple chases successful. Many rich stakes to be raced for at the Coney Island Jockey club in 1903 and 1!04 will close on Monday, Novem- "I have no more nervous headaches and. rest very well at night." When a -woman suffers from female weakness and irregularity or other forms of womanly disease, the effect is cer tain to be marked in her nervous sys tem, the general effect being, as in Mrs. Woodin's case, " nervous headaches, rest lessness at night" and a run-down condi tion. It is simply common sense then which says if you cure the female weak ness, irregularity, etc., you will cure the nervousness, sleeplessness and other con sequences of womanly disease. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures the womanly diseases which undermine the general health. It establishes regu larity, dries enfeebling drains, heals in flammation and ulceration, and cures female weakness.

W'oodin. of Millerton, Dutchess Co., N. Y., care of Box No. I. For a number of years I had been troubled with female .weakness, "nervous headache, irregularity, rest lessness at niijht. and, in fact was all run-down, but after taking three bottles of ' Favorite Pre scription ' and one of Oo4clen Medical Discov ery ' feel that I am entirely cured.

Kansas Knox and Northwestern still remain on Ne braska university's football schedule and if the Cornhuskers are successful in bowling them over, as their followers believe. Booth's men will go through the year without a single defeat. So far the Cornhuskers have been able to keep all opponents even from crossing- the Nebraska goal line, and if this record is but continued until the end of the sched ule it will be the most glorious year in the history of the university in football. Saturday's drubbing of the strong Haskell Indian aggregation was a pro nounced triumph for the Cornhuskers, who played with a brilliancy and dash never before witnessed on a Nebraska gridiron. The redmen made no secret before the game -that they expected to win. Illinois university had been the only team to worst the Indians and the latter's coach, Outland. declared that in the final half his pupils outplayed the Illinois handily, scoring two touch downs, but losing 24 to 10. Against Ne braska the Haskell eleven played at the beginning w ith the same dash and speed as marks the methods of the Carlisle team. But the Indian characteristic of letting down when encountering strong opposition asserted itself. This was due for the Cornhuskers, who redoubled their efforts and piled up four touch downs in the final half. Emporia 22; Haskell O. Kmporia, Kan., Nov. 4. The Presby terian college won a ood victory by de feating a mixed Haskell Indian team by a score of 22 to 0. The visiting team con sisted mostly of second team men. but there were two first team men in thegame and a few of the third eleven. They were larger men than the Presbyterians, but the home team's snappy playing won the fame. In the first half the playing was about even, the collegians making one touchdown and a goal. In the second half the home players had a walkaway, mak ing two touchdowns, two gains and a field goal. The Indians scarcely got. pos session of the ball in this half. Plumb, MeCabe and Kcllson, for the college, play ed sensational ball and every man was in the game from the start. JCext Mon day is the second college Normal game in the Mitivay cup series and the Presby terians feel confident of a victory. The Normals won the last by a score of 6 to 0. Racing at Chicago. Chicago, Nov. 4. Lucien Appleby, with 118 pounds up. won the feature event at the opening of Lakeside today.

ORCHARDS BEAR WELL Tracts of from 50 to 100 Acres Thick Over the County. Thousands of Barrels Are Placed in Cold Storage. Wichita, Kas.. Nov. 4. Speaking of apple culture in this section of the state, P. V. Healy said: "This is unquestionably one of the best arple sections of the state. Fully 50 per cent, of the land in this county is bottom land and every foot of this is good apple land. Much of the upland is also suitable for apple growing, so that probably 75 or 80 per cent, ot the entire county is adapted to the raisins of apples. This apple-growing territory extends as far as Hutchinson up the river." "How long have people been raisins aules here?" was asked. "Well, they have been raising them for mai ket only about ten years," said Mr. Healy, "but apples have been raised here for twenty-five years or more. There are some apple trees in the Hoover orchard that are twenty five years old and they are in fine con dit'on and have borne apples every year since they were old enough." Mr. Healy first became enthusiastic over apples while helping to work up the plan of making a Sedgwick county exhibit at the Omaha exposition. He found that this county could compare favorably w-ith any- oter section of the state in point of beauty and ex cellence of its apples, and when the awards were made he became mote en thusiastic still. The exhibit of apples from this county at the excoeition comprised twenty-seven varieties and made a showing- that surprised even the peoale w-ho went from here and saw them at the show. "My judement as to the good duality of our apples was confirmed by the reports and awards." said Mr. Healy, and I came home a better friend of the Kansas apple than I had ever been. Our apoleS are ecual to any grown in the state in point of color, size and flavor and in the latter respect supe rior to any apples shown at Omaha by any state. Since that time I have talked apples a ereat deal and I have done so because I know that they are profitable. The trees do not bear fuii every year, of course, but when there is a Iisht crop the price is usually enough higher to make up for the shortage. "The acreage of apples in Sedgwick county is growing rapidly and we now have some of the finest orchards In the state. But there is plenty of room for more, and they cannot but be profit able for apples always find a ready sale. There is not a foot of land within ten miles of Wichita, if it is suitable for apple growing, that will not be worth $100 an acre for that purpose in side of five years." Mr. Healv declared that not one man in a thousand here in Sedgwick county had any idea of the magnitude of the apple crop, and said that while this was thought to be a good potato country, there were more dollars' worth of apples than of potatoes sold in Wichita every year. A further investigation in other direc tions discloses the fact that this county has some of the best known apple grow ers In the state. Among them are S. H. Hoover, who has IfiO acres in orchard. P. H. Thomas, who has 60 acres, Mr. Wil liams near Haysville, who has a 60-acre orchard, and J. T. Fager. of Haysville, James Martin, of Oatvllle, Steve Balch, southeast of this city a few miles, Kd Horner. J. H. Stuckey and Mr. Harrison, all of them in the same section of the rounty. and D. M. Jones, northwest of Wichita, all of whom have from 20 to 30 acres in bearing orchards. There are doubtless several others with orchards'equally large, whose names could not be learned, and there are probably more than a hundred orchards In the county of ten acres or more. Every man who pays any attention to the profits to be derived from his orchard knows that it pays well and nearly every man named makes it a point to increase the size of his orchard every year.. The varieties most popular for winter use are Ben Davis, Missouri Pippin and Winesap. with a good sprinkling of Grimes' Golden, Jonathan and other fall and summer favorites. There are no insects in this part of the country to injure the trees and no part of the state is so free from moths.

Wrhen it comes to talking of quantities some startling, figures are given regarding the size of the apple crop of this county. Saying nothing about the apples consumed by the 30,000 people of Wichita since last July there have been hauled into the city and handled by the produce dealers and placed in cold storage not less than 25,000 barrels. The Wichita Produce company alone averaged 200 barrels a week shipped out of the city during September and Oc tober and the J. D. McEwen Produce com pany claim to have shipped out 100 barrels a week for the same length of time. There were a great many apples shipped by both these houses in August, also. Be sides these dealers, there are five or six others engaged in the same business, so it is safe to say that the actual shipment from this city during the past two months has averaged 100 barrels per day. There are besides a great many apples now in cold storage to await better prices. It is estimated that at least 18,000 barrels are being thus kept in the city. All of the best apples grown by S. H. Hoover, P. H. Thomas, J. T. Fager and several others have been put into cold storage. The only apples that have been sold from any of these orchards have been early varieties, culls or windfalls. It will thus be seen that the bulk of apples handled by the produce dealers have come from the smaller orchards of the county. Apples are now a good price and it is said that not a barrel can be purchased from any of the dealers for less than $2."0, while one man who has his apples in cold storage is said to have refused to take $3.00 per barrel for two carloads one day this week. STAGE STRUCK GIRL. Joined an Opera Company and Is Banished from Home. Leavenworth, Kan., Nov. 4. A former Leavenworth girl, who was prominent in society when she lived in this city, and who was considered beautiful, came to grief while visiting in this city a few days ago, and her present whereabouts are un known to her friends. About three years ago her jiarents moved to Kansas City, and. on account of their intelligence and refinement, they were admitted to good so ciety. Last year the Wilbur Opera com pany visited Kansas City and while there the manager advertised for chorus girls. The former Leavenworth girl saw the ad vertisement, and she offered her services. Her voice pleased the manager of the show, and she was taken as a member of the company. Her father objected, attd swore that he never would allow her to return home if she joined the show. He pleaded with her to change her mind, but she refused to give up the position, and she left Kansas City with the company. A short time ago she returned to Kan sas City a complete wreck, and when she called at her father's house she was or dered away, was told never to show her face there again. She knew of no friend in Kansas City who would care to keep her, and she came to Leavenworth. Upon her arrival here she went to one of the leading families in the city, where she had always bitn welcome in the past. She was re ceived with open arms, for none of the members of the family had heard ot" h.-r career since she went to Kansas City to live. Two days after she came here a tele phone message from Kansas City told ev erything concerning her downfall and ruin, and, immediately she was informed by the head of the family, which she was visiting that her presence was no longer desired. She was willing to go, but said she had no money, and a dollar was given her. She went away the picture of des pair, and no one in Leavenworth has seen her since. It has been learned here that the father of the girl told her that he would shoot her if he ever saw her in Kansas City again. When she lived in SMOTHER A COUGH.

Hose Wagon Tongue Broke and Overturned Vehicle. Kansas City, Kan. .Nov. 4. Five mem bers of the Are department had a re markable escape from instant death at the Northwestern crossing on James street yesterday afternoon. No. 1 hose company was responding to a fire alarm turned In from the old Hanson opera house, at 68 Centra! avenue. The horses were being driven at a terrific pace. At the approach to the Northwestern cross ing, near the Fowler packing house. Driver John Patty drew the horses back. This movement resulted in the breaking of the tongue on the hose wagon, and instantly the wagon was overturned. The occurrence was so sud den that the five men on the wagon did not have time to jump. Instead, they were thrown violently to the ground and under the falling wagon. That the wagon did not crush them is considered miraculous by the half hundred people who witnessed the accident, but the only injuries received by the men were due to the hard fall they received. The framework of the wagon didn't touch a single man. The injured are: John Patty, driver, bruised about the knees, elbows and face. Olander Lind, head and shoulders bruised and knees sprained. Samuel Nichols, knees, shoulders and elbows badly bruised and right leg sprained. Nichols is the most seriously injured. Thomas Morrissey and "Chimb" Ba ker, the other men on the wagon, were bruised about the body, but they were not seriously injured. The injured firemen were removed to No. 1 station, where they were attend ed by Dr. C. M. Stemen and Dr. L. D. Mabie. Nichols' condition, so the doc tors declare, is so serious that he will need careful attention. Tt will be sev eral weeks before he is able to assume charge of his duties. MANAGER OF FORD'S THEATER W. J. Chappelle Present at Lincoln's Assassination. Leavenworth, Nov. 4. W. J. Chappelle who died in this city last Friday night, was one of the oldest and most widely acquaintc-i theatrical men in the world. He was 73 vears eld and had been i:i the show business for 50 years. He w-as manager of Ford's theater at Washing ton when President Lincoln "was assas sinated and was one of the first to reach the side of the wounded president, climbing over the footlights to the pres ident's box. Histories mention Chap pelle's name in connection with the fa mous tragedy. The body was embalmed and was sent last night to Great Bend, Pa., the home of the deceased's daughter.
