If it shows any purpose to consider the treaty a due allowance of time wfll be made by our government.

Novel Means Used for Freeing " 1 Houses of Mud. Enormons Cost of Cleaning Ep the Buildings. Today the work of burning up dead animals in North Topeka will be prac tically completed. There may be an oc casional animal here or there which will have to be buried, but the work has been pretty well cleaned up. Work In Auburndale has also been in progress j today, and will likely be finished by this j evening. ; It is estimated that not far from 300 ; horses, cows, calves and pigs have been : burned in North Topeka. The propor '. tion of pigs was very small, probably ! not more than ten being; found in the j whole district. i Kast of Kansas avenue, the burning I has been in charge of W. S. Eastman : and Frank Peach. Eastman was in i charge of the whole job for a time, and : burned a large number of animals west : of Kansas avenue. Owing to the magni tude of the undertaking, the work was divided, and all dead animals west of I Kansas avenue were assigned to a new district and Henry Steele took charge of it. Mr. Steele organized two gangs, one of which he personally directed, and one of which was managed by O. M. Capron. Both did very effective work yesterday. Dead animal cremation is rather an unusual and iu some ways interesting occupation. It - generally supposed to be a decidedly oisagreeable job, and this is where the public make:; a mistake. Tiie cremation part is all right. It is getting the animals to the fire that tests, the nostrils and moral courage of the workmen. I in preparing a pile for cremation, a lot of ill i f l was laid on the ground, the ! animals thrown on, and more logs add ed. Then the whole mass was well satu- 1 rated wilh kerosene oil. The tire was ' care full v watched and replenished, and yet it required many hours to entirely i consume the mass ot flesh, i While the burning is going on theru 'is no disagreeable odot, except the i rather offensive smell of burning meat.

As it is. a great many beautiful trees have been scorched and probabjy killed. "Sometimes we can't find a good place for the- ciles." said one of the burners yesterday, "and wh-n we can't we must take the best there is. Then airain, we have to he guide'l in the loca tion of the pile by the reoximity of bodies. We can't haul those bodies very far. Sorry we spoiled the trees, but t can't be too particular about such things just now."

The estimated value of the horses, cows and calves burned up is ?10,000. CLEAMNt; OPT THE MIT). Wilh tiie dead animals out of th? way, and the chief source of annoyance thus removed, the work of cleaning out mud progressed rapidly on Tuesday. A great many people- acted upon the mayor's proclamation and helped North siders shovel mud all day. Many oth ers worked during the afternoon" The result is that a treat deal of time ha been saved in making North Topeka habitable. Even at the present time, there are iirohably one-fifth of the houses which have not been touched.. They are mostly small houses, however, which were oei-upl-d by renters. Some times the renters had so little pronerty in the house that they will simply loa'c it there, and make no effort to sa vc anything except what they can fish opt of the mud. It will then be "up to" the owner of the property to have it cleaned out. A colored man who lived down in the west part of town in a rente,! house said toda.y: "I've rented another house up this way further, and the man is going to clean it out for me. I save t some of my stuff, and I ain't going to pay any attention to the old truck " li.pl at the other r'lace."

A very nice looking woman at a very nice looking house on Kansas avenue, near Garfield park, was working hard with her husband and two sons this morning cleaning the mud out of the.-r home. With a large amount of good sense, this woman had adapted herself to conditions, and was wearing a pair of men's overalls, into which was neat ly tucked the skirts of her mother hub bard dress. She wore a sunbonnet. an! a person had to look twice before being sure whether it was a man in a eur.! hor.net or a woman in trousers. The long yellow hair proved it to be the lat ter. Many women wer" at work in North Topeka. but this was the only one who had the courage to discard her muddy, sticky skirts. Most of the women looked discour ager!. They sloshed around on the slip pery floors with a heartless, tired air; they pushed back their dishevelled hair with their muddy fingers, and seemed to be looking continually for something clean enough to sit down on or lean against. It is a very unfortunate thing to be a North Topeka woman just now. HAD A FORCE PFMP. At one house near Gabriel's lumber yard, the owners are the proud and haughty possessors of a force pump, and they are making excellent use of it. They have set it down into the cellar, and connected the hose with the busi ness end. A husky colored man plies the handle of the pump, and the water conues out with as much force as though the hose was attached to the city waler main as they were "before the flood." The water is used to wash out the rooms, clean the walls, and shoot die mud into the yard. At the same time, the water in the cellar is gradually get ting less. DOES IT PAY TO PUMP CELLARS? There is considerable question as to whether it is a profitable investment just now to pump the water out of cel lars. Some say that it comes in as fast as it can be pumped out. The Sand upon which North Topeka stands is Very thoroughly saturated with water. A man who owns a. building or Kan sas avenue says that the water in Pis cellar has been falling just about as fast as the river falls. He says that as the river goes down the water in his cellar is absorbed into the sand out side, and that he does not expect to do any pumping nt all in his cellar. On Kansas avenue, among the busi ness houses, there is little use in one pumping out his cellar, because it will come in as fast as it goes out from the ! cellars next door. He would have to j pirmp out all the cellars in his block to empty his own. MOPE RIVER SANP. flood is more like the regular river flood is more like the reugiar river sand than the deposit in the business part of town. There seems to be con siderable pure mud mixed up with the V - p Krs. "W. J. Bailey, stuff which merchants are digging out of their stores, but out near Carlielu park, the residences are tilled wilh sand. It is not so bad to handle as the slimy ooze, and perhaps will be found to have done pss damage. A SHOE mini:. Tn a shoe store on Kansas r.venue the proprietor hfis a mine which he is w-orking for a new product -shies. The shop is about half full of sand. and nearly all the slvdving has fallen. The mud is as full of shoes as a Christmas pudding is full of plums. The men who are shoveling have to use great cafe to avoid cuttii'g the shoes, which are being saved for what ever they will bring. A workman was showing this mornirs a pair of fine patent leather shoes worth about which had been almost cut in two by some energetic workman. COST OF PIGGING OPT THE Ml D. side from the damage which the water and mud did to me-chundise, household good and buildings, the bare expense of digging North Topeka out is something enormous. The late Mc Ginty is not in it. Only half an hour was required to dig McGinty from the coal, but a half an hour isn't long enough to get one's bearings when a North Topeke house is to be dug out. Here is an example- of what it meana to ditr out an average store building: This building was vacant, and fore easinr and ouioker work tha there tliose containing merchandise. The owner oi the building has hired men at $2 a day. He has bad five men at work every day since Wednesday. June 3. which means a total expense for labor of J70, in addi tion to which he has worked seven days himself The mud is now all out of the first floor, and all the floor needs is washing. But riolhing whatever has been done to the basement yet. It will no doubt cost at least ti:,i) to gt the mud out of that store. Fixing $hXi as the average for each store in North To peka and $25 for each residence, t no total Cost of digging the mud out of North Topeka would be about $::a.ono. nd this dees not count the cost to th" citv at large for hauling off this mud and has putting if where the river current washed out holes. tmi m water Are the Pressing Needs of Kan sas City at Present. Kansas City, June 1". Clean up work in the flood district has been retarded by the lack of water and men. Hun dreds cf laboring men are n-"-ded and every idle person is being pressed into service. It is expected a full force of water will be sent through the mains today. The Twelfth street cable line, reaching to the stock yards district, was started today after a ten days' shut down.

Gorer- Bridal Couple Will Reach To peka This Afternoon. 30 WEDDING TOUK. One '',t Be Taken Later. , a Little Couple Were Engaged Long Be fore the Election. Governor Willis J. Bailey of Kansas and Mrs. Ida B. Weed of Kansas City, were united in marriage in the First Congregational church of Kansas City at 6 o'clock Tuesday evening. They left Kansas City for Topeka at 11 o'clock this rooming and are due to reach the state capital at 4:-;0 this afternoon. "J! the Governor's Bride. The wedding in Kansas City was a very quiet and simple one. Only a few of the immediate friends of the bridal pair were present. The re was no music, lie, die, rations, nor anything of an os tentatious nature. Everything was sim plicity as far as possible. The guests were: Orlin and Vernon Weed, the two sons of the bride; Mr. John Alb.-rt of Seneca, her father; Mr. and Mrs. E. N. Bailey, and Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Caflery of Pauley ville Mr. Bail-y is the brother of the governeir and Mrs. Caffery is his sister; Mrs. Ida Jost and Miss Laura Jost of Kansas City. Kan., and Mr. and Airs. M. A. Potts of Kan pas City, Mo. The ceremony was per formed by Lev. J. F. Fitield. A wedding supper was served at the Midland hotel at 7:c0 in the evening. It had lice:i the intention of the gov ernor to take his bride on a wedding trip, to his old home in Illinois, but the Hood situation in Kansas, which may necessitate an extra session of the leg islature, tiie calling out of the militia, to suppress moli violence in northwest ern Kansas, and other earosi of Ftate compelled the giving up of the wedding journey, and Governor F.ailey and his bride ar-1 now returning to Topeka. Mrs. Bailey's maiden name was Miss Ida Albert. Her first husband, Mr. Weed, was interested in Colorado real estate until the boom swept his prop erty awav. . Prior to that they lived at Yuina, Colo. When the boom broke Mr. Wed entered the employ of the Rock Island. He was a conductor on that road and was in c harge of a train at the time of his death from heart trou ble five years ago. His widow was left with her two boys to support, and she went to Seneca. Nemaha county, and engaged in the) millinery business, and it was ther-j that the future governor met her. Sub sequently she removed to Kansas City, Then th"e future governor became a frequent visitor to Kansas City, and more than a year ago he secured a promise from Mrs. Weed to become his wife. The promise was fulfilled Tues day. The wedding last night fur nishes tiie key to Governor Bailey's many trips to his "farm." With great regularity he has left Topeka on Satur day aft-moon going to Kansas City and telling the reporters that be had t go tn paileyville to look after his farm. He was always bac k at his office early on Monday, however, and it has been noticed on a number of occasions that he was obliged to talk with Paileyville by long distance telephone almost im mediately on his. return, and his con versation founded peculiar for a man who had just be-'n to his "farm." The people about the state hcu?e understand it now. Although the governor was engaged to Mrs. Weed before the campaign last fall, he says that: the story that he promis- d to get married if elected was a fiction invented by someone. This and the fact that no one knew of his engagement to Mrs. We-d was the pri mary cause of the great number of proposals which he has received from women all over the country during- th past few months. In speaking of tha matter Governor Bailey said: "Long before the election, Mrs. Weed and I were engaged to be married. I never made a promise with any one -that I would take a wife if I were elected governor of Kansas. That was a story started by some of my friends. They meant it in a good natured way, but I really had the joke on them."
