It should be understood that the fore going figures relating to the income and expenditures of railways are compiled from the annual reports made to the commission by two classes of railway corporations. Operating reports are j tiled by such companies a maintain I full operating accounts, and financial I reports by such companies as have ; leased their property to others for oper ation, their own income, apart from that derived from investments, being the annual fixed or contingent rental ipaid by their lessees, from wltich they I make their own disbursements.

The j sourc e and extent of such duplications : are clearly indicated in the report, which contains also an income account of the railways of the United States, consid , ered as a system, intercorporate pay- mi nts being eliminated therefrom by I making use, where appropriate, of bal ! anee amounts JAYHAWXER JOTS.

Imaginary trouble is often harder to bear than the r. al thing. While a t!irt runs after a man the de mure maid wins in a walk. It is often difficult to live up to one's reputation of being a bad man. It's much easier to live within your in come than it is to live without it. The difference between a cook and a chef is hut a matter of salary. When a note goes to protest the holder does a little protesting on his own account.

Hut no matter what you call it. this skin disease which comes in patches that burn, itch, discharge a watery matter, drv and scale, owes its existence to the presence of humors in the system. It will continue to exist, annoy, and per haps agrunize, as long as these humors remain. It is always radically and permanently cured by i Hood's Sarsaparilla which expels all humors, and is positively Unequalled for all cutaneous eruptions. EDITORIAL. COMMENT. Side-Show Horrors. Washington Star: The circus man who kidnaped a child In order to exhibit him in a cage with monkeys as a wild boy deserves the special consideration of the court which has him in charge at East St. Louis. Such a brute can hardly be sufficient ly punished. But the man's criminal enterprise was based upon a knowledge that the public would be highly enter i tained by the spectacle. While the fact i dots not -lessen his responsibility, it is ; nevertheless to be noted that as long las the people are willing to pay to see repulsive things the showmen .will man age to provide them. A few seasons I ago one of the favorite devices of the 1 circus managers and side-show proprie tors was a pit in which a woman sat surrounded by snakes. Occasionally she would bite off the head of a reptile, to the great delectation of the crowd 1 that always surrounded the edge of the I pit. She was unspeakably loathsome in appearance and her occupation was re volting m the extreme. Yet it was fair ly impossible for the late-corning cur ious ones to make their way to the place of vantage. The more horrible the sight the more eager do some people seem to be to view it. Especially is this true of abnormalities of human develop ment. A "wild boy" attracts a crowd not because of anything unusual in his appearance, but because of the start ling lie which is told to the gaping crowd. P. T. Barnum uttered one of the sgest of truths when he declared that the public wants to be humbugged. It also seems anxious to be shocked. The Need of Foreign Trade. Philadelphia Record: Mr. Campbell Shaw, chairman of the national committee on reciprocity, is substantially correct in writing to Col onel Albert Clarke, secretary of the Home Market club, that "expansion of trade northward is determined upon by the business men of the border cities, and by the manufacturers in the north ern tier of states and contiguous terri tory." This demand for better trade facilities with the Dominion, an extra ordinarily good customer of ours, and one that buys far more than it sells to us. is strong all along the northern border, and it Is getting stronger in spite of every effort by the "stand-patters" to choke it off. The demand for Canadian reciprocity, reinforced by a growing demand from our manufactur ers for reciprocity with Europe, and the growing conviction that the obnoxious features of the trusts can only lie reach ed by reducing their superfluous pro tection, is creating a better atmosphere for a tariff revision agitation in the in terests of American business and in dustry than ever existed before. The home market, in a state of abnor mal activity, is just now absorbing the product of iron and steel furnaces and mills. When this exceptional demand shall abate a little there will be as pressing a need for foreign outlets as there was five years ago. and we are still holding most of our foreign trade in manufactures of steel. Authorities in the cotton trade have already- observed that periods of prosperity in cotton manufacture coincide with a good, for- ! cign demand, and periods of depression j w ith a cessation of foreign demand. The ! export bears a very small ratio to the I domestic consumption in cotton goods, j but it takes off the surplus that would I weigh down the market unless mills were stopped. To our manufacturers of ! agricultural implements foreign mar ! kets are an absolute necessity, and a i reduction of foreign duties on our farm I machinery would greatly increase the I employment of American capital and labor in making these goods. There are scores of industries that are ' coming to recognize more clearly every ! year the need of foreign markets, and they will not indefinitely support Mark ' Hanna in his determination that not a ; schedule shall be touched, though touching some of them would materially increase our facilities for export. The Stockholders' A-wakening. ! Grand Rapids Press: nottie mieieMllUK .iihiimiius voo manner in which the trusts are manu factured have resulted from the failure of the ship building trust. Charles M. Schwab, the president or the steel trust, was supposed to own the Hethlchcm Steel company and the pro moters of the ship building company went to him to buy it. He told them that he did not own it. but knew who did. and of fered to buv it and transfer it to the eom panv for ton million dollars in the bonds of the new company, ten millions of preferred stock and ten millions of the common, stock. This was agreed to. and it now ap pears that Schwab bought the concert: from J. I'. Morgan and company for nine millions transferred it to the new co:n panv and received his thirty millions m various kinds of securities. Incidentally, it appears that several years ago Schwab acquired practically the entire title to the lu thlehem company for three millions. First and lost, therefore, the investment has proved a highly profitable one to him -if the trust company securities had turned out to be worth par, or if it had been ahie to dispose of them before the crash came. As the Bethlehem plant was not in cluded in the original plans of the trust, but was purchased after the trust was practically organized, some rf the dock holders in the trust have raised a cry cf fraud in connection with the operation, but it is not likely that anything will come of it. as far as the thrifty Schw.ib is concerned. Mr. Schwab, however, offers to surrender bis thirty millions in securi ties if the trust will give him a clear title to the Bethlehem plant. Thej? revelations, writes Holland, the well known correspondent, have undoubt edly put an end to promotions on a huge scale like those of the steel trust, ship transportation, and ship building com panies The Whitney syndicate which has been promoting the New York tra--tion companies and consolidating them m what is known as the Interurban com pany is now charged with operations sim ilar'to the Bethlehem Steel company stale and to be profiting by them at the ex pense of the other stockholders. Everybody connected with these trust organizations seem in fact, to be getting by the ears, and it will be well nigh impossible to or ganize more of them. It is also alleged that the banks have nt last taken a decisive stand in regard to such matters and will not lend their assistance to trust promoters. The move ment has gone far enough, in their opin ion and it is held by some of them that it has gone too far. It is now not a ques tion of making profits with most of those involved, but of getting out somewnere pear whole. l ne snip uuuihuk u h.-l ,oo. out manv false statements as to its earn ing capacity, and stockholders in other concerns fear that other promoters have done the same. This is also a factor in the situation, and the man who suggests a new combination nowadays meets with a very chilling reception, if not downright ostracism. Lipton Invitea by Roosevelt.

CUBB1S0N BILL PASSES. Tax Abatement Measure Changed Slightly in House. The house this morning passed sen ate bill 21. by- Cubbison, authorizing the abatement of taxes in counties damaged by floods, making a slight amendment which will be placed before the senate for concurrence this afternoon. This is the most important general bill yet acted upon in either house. The senate has taken up as a special order Senator Wright's bill. No. 20, au thorizing the appointment of a flood re lief commission and the appropriation of $150,OUO for relief work. NEOSHO RIVER BILL. It Is Messaged to the House This Afternoorj. At 3 o'clock Senator Stewart's bill from the senate to provide for a survey of the Neosho river was messaged over to the house. The bill carried an ap propriation of $3,000 for the work and provided a chief engineer, to be ap pointed by the governor at a salary ot $6 per day, to have charge of the work. The idea is to have the Neosho rivet straightened and prevent the water backing up when there is high water. Representative Nation from Neosho county is expected to make a fight on it. LELAND BILL KILLED. That Cutting Down Interest on State Warrants Lost. House bill No. 2 by Leland. providing for cutting down interest rates on state warrants was unfavorably recommend ed in the senate special committee. The bill provided for a reduction of interest rates on short time warrants of the state from 6 per cent to 4 per cent. Sen ator Smith said the bill was turned down because it wasn't tiood legislation and Iweause it was not believed the warrants could be disposed of at 4 per cent. In the senate this afternoon an effort was made to recall the bill for a vote. .NEW SODA FOUNTAIN. The Grillion Is the Largest and Fines in Topeka- The Swift & Holliday Drug company ha ve repainted and rtpapered their store and installed a magnificent new- double draught soda water fountain. The fountain is of the Tuft'ts company's make and is called the "Grillion." It is of onyx, the woodwork is trimmed in white and gold enamel. This is not only the largest and naudsomest soda water fount a in in Topeka, but it has many points of prac tical superiority over other fountains. The syrup cans ai-e porcelain and can be instantly removed for cleaning. Soda water patrons will appreciate this, as well as the fact that only filtered and sterilized water is used. The Swift & Holliday Drug company manufacture their own soda water. In the basement under the fountain the water is first sterilized and filtered through a. Pasteur filter. It the passes to the carbonating machine, where it is charged with carbonic acid gas, which makes the delightful fizz when the water is drawn from thc fountain above. Most fountains use a tank of soda water which is purchased ready charged. When the water gets low in the tank the gas is nearly ex hausted and the water is fiat and "life less." The Grillion's carbonating ma chine is automatic and renews the gas from lime to time as it is needed, so that the water always conies from the fountain bubbling and effervescent. A convenient arrangement makes it txis- sible to charge any kind of mineral water, as well as ginger ale and root beer, at the fountain, whit h produces a much more satisfactory drink than the bottled kind. Vincent A. Trengove, formerly of Jordar, Marsh & Co., Boston, will pre side at the fountain. Mr. Trengove haft charge of the Lippincott's fountains at the Buffalo exposition. Saturday evening Steinberg's orches tra will play, and the public is invite.j to call and examine the new fountain. NEW HOCK ISLAND THAIN. Rocky Mountain Limited Will Be Re sumed on July 1.

DEATHS AND FUNERALS. Mrs. E. A. Barney, aged 63 years, died tris morning at the home of J. E. Clark, 620 Western avenue, at 7 o'clof k. Mr-e Barney lived in North Topeka for thirty years, but was not there during thv flood. When she saw- the havoc which was wrought by the water and the destruction of her property she was greatly worried, and it is supposed that this brought on congestion of the brain. The bodv will be taken to Shawr.ee. Okla.. for burial. Edna May MrCorkill. daughter of M-. and Mrs. E. E. McCorkill. aged 22 months, died this morning of stomach trouble at 426 Eighteenth street.

Confessions of a Financier. The asides of a great financier on the stand are oftn more instructive than his direct testimony. Thus Mr. Whit ney yesterday told the court and the j public a good deal about the Metropoli tan management, but incidentally re i vealed much more as to the ideas un derlying that management. We learn, for example, that the convenience or benefit of the public is the last thing that public service corporations think of. When, moreover, it appears that a company is dangerously extended, we are informed that the true remedy is to extend it further. If it is weak, load heavier burdens upon it. When it is anaemic, the thing to do is to bleed it some more. Economies, retrenchment, suspension of unearned dividends such resorts are quite behind the times. Mr. Whitney also gave us a realistic ac count of the way in which "strong men" are drawn to the support of a corporation in need of help. You do not get them by paying high salaries, but bv cresting millions of new securities which thev are to have the privilege cf manipulating. Mr. Whitney was ask ed if his "strong men" made their profits out of the company. "Not out of the company," he said, with a laugh. Lot the long-eared investing public note that for future reference. N. Y. Post. His Reason. "And so you refuse even to make the effort to enter into society?" In response to his friend's protest the tall, handsome man bowed in silent as sent. "It is too much to ask." he said. "1 have spent a life in hard work and I need the rest." His friend laughed. "Nonsense." he replied. "You are in the prime of life, have accumulated millions and are just the man. What is the particular thing that makes you hestitate?" "If you must know." said the other, "it is" this: I don't know whether to wear a Tuxedo coat with at white tie or whether a black waistcoat should ever be worn with full dress or not. Is it proper to wear a black tie with a dress coat, or a white tie with a white waist coat, or a black tie with a black waist- l coat? Shall I say 'waistcoat or "vest." I and shall I- say 'full dress' or 'evening dress?' Do I want a velvet or a silk i collar on my coat, and when shall I wear i an opera hat and when a silk hat? I Would it be proper to wear an opera ' hat w ith a sweater or a silk hat with a flannel shirt. Js it rignt to wear a frock coat before breakfast, and how many studs shall I have In my shirt bosom? Again, shall my shirt cuffs be round or square? Some say round, some say square. These are questions that torture me. No. no. my friend, 1 cannot take up this burden." And his friend shook his hand in silent svmpathy. He understood at last. $16.00 Tickets on sale June 30 and July 1. Final return limit, Sept. 15. SEE Rock Island Agents BILLS AUDITED.

Hard to Secure a Jury in a Lakm Cattle Case. Lakin, Kan., June 25. District court is in session here this w;eek. Among the cases to be tried is the case of the State vs. John King charged with stealing a bunch of cattle last Septem ber. King was apprehended by the sheriff near Ness City. Judge Banta of Great Bend arid Etudger of Ness City are defending King. Already two days have been consumed in getting a jury and the prospects are very slim for securing one in the county. It seems as though any person that ever heard of the case Is challenged and excused. The court is laboring under difficulties owing to the rainy weather we are now having. In Praise of Lawn Tennis. A certain summer hotel advertises: "Lawn tennis and croquet are now once more fashionable. We have unrivaled fac'Mties for both games." Such state ments as that sadly discourage the ad vocates of a game which is not only of the highest possible athletic value, but which is as solidly and iiermanently pleasurable as it is benelicial as a means of training the eye to swiftness, the hand to accuracy and all the facul ties to attention. If lawn tennis can not make its way without a "rage." a silly fashion for that particular game, a freak of idle people for appearing in public places in rubber-soled shoes and a racket in band, it may as well be put in the ning-pong category at once and done w ith it. And it is certainly a gra tuitous insult to couple it with the once favorite diversion of the housemaids and hfTttrtl 3IBiIf ' and their "fellers" in the back lot th5 squalid and pugnacious croquet. As a matter of fact, tennis holds it own quite apart from the question of fashion. More than one attempt ha- been made to displace it since it cjm in a new and modernized form, int- deserved popularity some thirty years ago. It has been an ancient game, but it needed adaptation to modern !a-,vn needs, and received it. Its merits wer recognized--they could not help but b. The game involves more things that ar fjp.e than almost any other game. It is more brilliant and beautiful than goif, more superbly active; it is piayed hT-r people can see it. and where, ia Par breathing spells, the intercourse of pleasant people with one another is pos sible under conditions of the utmost agreeability as well as dignity.
