Alwiiuil of Leavenworth is re ported to lie netting' nis jiians una io ' eapture the job of representing' Kansas i on the In nioeratii' nati(tnU committee, i in place of J. ;. Johnson. "Whether Mr. j.Inhnson will be a cnn.Jiilate for re-elec- tion is y t uncertain, but according to 1 Mr. Atweod it is a matter of small con cern to liim. He siys that Johnson is an easy man to boat. Joimson and Atwood are not on the h- st of t'-rms, poiiTicaily. They have clashed several tim 'S of "late, and it is corseejuent ly natural to expect that At wood should J40 after the scalp of his opponent in the committeeman fiuht.

Mr. Turpin, the colored janitor of the Second Presbyterian church, lost a por tion of his house in the flood. His home was on the corner of Polk and Laurent streets. The house was twisted from its foundation and a part of the kitchen swept away, and was later found in the yard of Mrs. Woodman, corner of Har rison and Park streets. The David Hall place, at 809 Quincy street, is one of the most attractive homes on this side. The ground has been graded and from all outward ap pearances the flood did not hurt them. The house does not seem to have suf fered, and the porch is filled with handsome palms, ferns and other plants. Work was commenced Saturday to re pair the Barret block.

The mer chants who have returned to theii stores are anxious to have the street sprinkler again in operation. Mr. Nich olson has the wagon and horses, and would keep the street sprinkled from morning until night if satisfactory arrangements could be made with tht street commissioner in regard to the compensation, as there are not enough merchants now in business to warrant the keeping up of the work. Certainly something should be done to make Hi's easier for these men who are now try,, ing to build up the First ward. LOW EXCURSION RATES EAST. NATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ASS'N, BOSTON, MASS.

The phantom pictures which rise and fall with the (lick of the ticker fasci nate them, and they play the game of chance with' the recklessness of veteran gamblers. Hundreds of women give their orders clandestinely, and the fact that they have an interest in the stock market, that their daily examination or the market report is prompted by any thing beyond a desire to be informed, is not known to any one save thir brokers. These are good customers for brokers. A sigh over a statement show ing a balance on the wrong side, a vow "never to do so any more" or an order given "just to get even" is the usual Sfttunce. There is another class of women stock gamblers in which the bad losei is largely represented. This class sud- ports bucket snops m tne residence parts of the city, like the one which was raided a few days ago. When these women win they are happy, but whei 'fortune frowns on them they are "horrid." They want their money back from the bucket shop proprietors. They cry, scold and finally threaten to "tell on the mean things" who took their margins. In order to shield themwlvra the threat is not often carried into eoution. and the bucket shoy .nur.-f to do business at the old star.d. takif- money from the women who S'j'iuml, t, the temptations of the tape. It is r freshing to know that ones in a w,ii4 a woman gets so thoroughly angry .tr eatise of her ittsses that she does h, share toward breaking up the bucket shop business.
