The commanding of ficer at Fort Leavenworth was notified of Major Van Ktzel's coming by the secretary or war at Washington.

A Reno county man who owns sev eral farms has a farm on which there are two thousand fruit trees. A year or two ago he made up his mind that the place was losing him money and placed it with a land agent to sell at two thou sand dollars.

Leavenworth. July 7. Captain E. F. Taggart, commanding officer of Corn piny A. Sixth United States infantry, stationed at Fort Leavenworth, has been placed In restraint in a room in tn post hospital and a sentry has been put on duty to guard over him. A mys tery surrounds the case aijd the air at Fort Leavenworth Is filled with rumors. It is claimed by some that Captain Tag gart felt a "spell" coming over him and asked that he be deprived of his free dom until he felt better. Strength is given this claim by the fact that the wife of the officer closed their home at the post and left immediately for San Francisco, where she ha3 relatives. Captain Taggart Is a man about 45 years of age, while his wife is yet in th L'fts. It is also rumored that Captain Taggart might have been placed under restraint on account of alleged abuse of officers of inferior rank. The case of this well known officer has caused a decided sensation at Fort Leav enworth, where Captain Taggart has been stationed about a year. People argue that there must be something serious in the case of Captain Taggart or so distinguished an officer would not be placed under an armed guard. The consensus of opinion is that Captain Taggart felt illness of mind coming upon him and asked to be placed where he could not injure anyone.. Captain Taggart is one of the best known offi cers of his rank in the United States army. He has seen about twenty years of service and has engaged in many tierce conflic ts. His record in the Phil ippines was particularly creditable. He had command of Company A, Sixth in fantry, in the flood districts at Kansas City during the recent stay there.

Many fields will make 25 to 30 bushels and the average will be about 20 bushels to the acre. Items from Hill City. Hill City, Kan., July 7. Harvest is now in full blast and the man who is at present idle In this vicinity is idle from choice, the implement men are working almost night and day setting up bind ers and headers and the voice of the farmer calling for harvest hands is heard In the land. A car load of twine from the penitentiary received this week has relieved the strain along that line and the work of harvesting the grandest crop ever raised in this county will proceed steadily to the finish. Some severe losses by hail have been sustain ed but these are being speedily and sat isfactorily adjusted. The town is experiencing an old time boom and considerable property is changing hands, ground has been broken for the erection of four new business buildings and the Mullaney Shoup block Is nearing completion. At a meeting held last week to con- sider the question of the maintenance of separate schools for the white and col ored children the colored population were out in full force and defeated the proposition. Dipping stations have been put In at several points in the county and the work of dipping cattle is in progress. More or less dissatisfaction prevails ac cording to the way the proclamation is construed but the work will go on and in the end the knockers will desist if the dipping is productive of even a small part of what is claimed for it- TO WELCOME GENERAL BELL.

Believed the Missing Sumner County Prosecutor Is Dodging His Debts. , Wellington, July 7. So far no trace has been secured of E. E. W'ilson, the missing county attorney, who wrote his wife from Topeka that he was going to drown himself in the Kaw river. The suicide theory is generally discredited since the condition of Wilson's affairs has become known. About the time he disappeared a $12,000 mortgage on some cattle he claimed to own was filed by C. S, Jobes of Kansas City, and other claims are turning up that show he has been going at a pretty fast clip finan cially. It is now believed that he has left the country. Wilson was a lieutenant in the Twenty-first Kansas during the Spanish war and up to this time has borne a good reputation. OTTAWA CHAUTAUaUA OPENS A Larger Attendance Than in Any of the Recent Years.

Ejes of Trotting Horsemen Are on Lou Dillon. ller Accomplishments Hare Never Been Equaled. AFTER CRESCEUS'MARK Wonderful Records Made to a Koad Wagon. Harnessed to a Lighter Sulky Time May Be Lessened. Chicago, July 7. Lou Dillon's extra ordinary performance at Cleveland will remain the subject for discussion until the grand circuit opens at Detroit, July 20, unless, as is quite likely, she does something even more sensational in the interim. It is as yet, too early to say that she is the greatest of trotting mares, but that she is the most remarkable ever seen, as yet, an the harness turf is not to be questioned, and already it is gen erally being argued that she has a chance, and a good one, to beat Cres ceus' world's record of 2:024 this season. When it is recalled that her entire pub lic career includes but two exhibition miles, trotted during the past three weeks, her phenomenal quality is at once self evident. The word phenomenal has been applied to so many fast horses that it is pretty nearly threadbare but no other so fitly, so appropriately, can be used to characterize Lou Dillon. When, June 16, at the Inaugural Cleveland matinee of 1903, Mr. Billings drove the dainty little chestnut mare a mile in 2:06, she did the trial so easily that her owner was satisfied he could have driven her below 2:05, had it been his desire to do so. He was confident that on her next trial she would ac complish this and her time, 2:04, shows how wonderfully correct his estimate was. The fractional time of these two miles is most interesting and deserves study. Here it is: Three- Quarter. Half, quarters. Mile. June 16 0:33 l:04Va l:35i 2:S14 June 29 0:314 1:03 1:34 2:04, The quarters separately: 1st. q. 2d q. 3d q. 4th q. June 16 0:33 0:31' 0:31 OHz Juna 2i 01 0-.31H 0:30 ao It will be at once noticed that the farther Lou Dillon went the faster she went. In the first mile Mr. Billings, who never before had strung her out, was, so to speak, "feeling of her." He only took her away to the quarter at a 2:12 rate and to the half at a 2:03 rate. Then he turned her loose, and she came home the last half at the rate of 2:03V&. The second mile analyzes differently and brings out conspicuously Mr. Bill ings' finest gift as a reinsman viz, his judgment of pace. It is possible that one or two of the other amateurs sur pass him in certain particulars as race drivers, but in drivins a horse a sen sational heat to break a world's rec ord he has repeatedly shown that he is in a class by himself. Having learned In the first trial what Lou Dillon's caliber was he drove the second one quite differently, taking her to the quarter at a 2:07 rate and the half at a 2:06 rate and on home at a 2:03 rate. Beginning at a very high rate of speed he gradually increased it in the most admirable manner, stepping the mare the successive quarters in 0:31, 0:31, 0.30 and 0:30 respective ly. Of course neither or these miles con stitutes a technical record which is the weakness of the matinee system. As is well known, Mr. Billings intends to give Lou Dillon a record that shall be tech nical as early as possible. But should she meet with a mishap before then her name will be accorded no place in the official year book of the trotting turf. The records she has unofficially broken are many and were until she eclipsed them considered dazzling. The official wagon record is 2:0a, by The Abbot. The official wagon record by an amateur driver is Lord Derby's 2:05. with Mr. Smathers driving. The official record for a 5-year-old trotter is 2:05Vi by Major Delmar. The official record by a 5-year-old mare is 2:06 by Susie F. The official record by a green trotter is 2:07 by Lord Derby. The of ficial record by a green trotting mare is 2:08 by Dulce Car. The official record by a mare to wagon is 2:07, by Lucile (also driven by Mr. Billings). Had Lou Dillon's 2:04 been technical all these would have gone glimmering. Besides it may be mentioned that no other trotter has ever beaten 2:07 as early in the season as the month of June. Never yet has Lou Dillon been driven a fast mile to a sulky. When, a year ago, Millard Sanders astonished the wise ones by driving her a mile in 2:08 in her work she was hitched to a cart. So was she when last May at Cleveland when Mr. Billings bought her she trot ted an exhibition half in 1:00. How fast will she go when she Is hooked to a feather weight racing sulky? Well, that is something every critic must guess for himself. It is at present a question of lively de bate as to whether the sulky is really any faster than the four-wheeled wagon which weighs but a few pounds more, runs lust as truly and lessens the jar, both to horse and driver. In the fall of 1900 The Abbot broke the world's record to sulky by trottins in 2:034 at Terre Haute, Ind. The "four cornered" track at "the Hub" is famous for the number of records that have been broken over it, and it is conceded that there is no faster track. But Just a week later The Abbot in his work at Lexington, over a track not specially prepared and not even at its best con sidered auite so fast as Terre Haute's. went a mile to wagon in 2:034, equal' Ing his world's record to sulky. The middle half of this mile was timed in a minute flat. Of course, it is oossible that The Ab bot was that day a better and faster horse than he had been the week before. Still the two miles show how slight is the difference in speed of the sulky and the wagon. When Lou Dillon is hitch ed to the former she may not trot much faster than she does to the latter and again she may. That she is bound to improve in speed is undeniable. And she needs no improvement in gameness to carry her before this season's close a mile that may be closer to the two minute mark than even Cresceus has yet approacneo. Rusie to Bo Released. Vincennes. Ind.. July 7. At a meeting of the stockholders of the Vincennes Pleasure and Athletic association it was decided to five Vincennes one of the best baseball teams in the state and to organized a new Indiana and Illinois leasrue. with Washington, Princeton, Brazil, Linton and Vincennes in Indi ana, and Mt. Carmel in Illinois as mem bers. The new league will be organized at once. Amos Rusie will likely be re- leased, as he has not been playing fast enough ball for the present team. The big fellow has difficulty in regulating his habits and Is still going the pace that took him from the National league. FATHER AND SON Flaying Professional Baseball on the Same Team. New Haven, July 7. For the first time in professional baseball history a father and son are on the pay roll of the same club and are playing the national game together. They are James Hendy CKourke, the famous old New York fielder, and his son, James H. O'Rourke, jr., who has been Yale's star innelder for two years. Jimmy, the younger, has just Joined the Bridgeport (Conn.) league nine, of which his father is own er. He played third base yesterday and today in the regularly scheduled games of the club, thereby sacrificing his ama teurship, resigning his membership on the Yale team and forfeiting hope of playing college baseball again. Jimmy has another year before he re ceives his Yale law school diploma. His father has always been known on the diamond as "Jim." The boy will be called "Sonny Jim." M'GOVERN IS WELL AGAIN. Brooklyn Boxer Is Home After Long Rest in the Mountains New York, July 7. Terry McGovern, as brown as a berry and completely re covered, has returned to his Brooklyn home after a stay of four weeks in the mountains. McGovern says he will re-enter the ring at once and meet all comers, but would prefer to get on a match with Champion Corbett, and he says that he will sign articles with his conqueror provided the. latter is prepared to do business. Not to be outdone by McGovern, who has recently branched out as a baseball magnate. Young Corbett has organized a ball team, and is out with a challenge to meet the McGovern aggregation of ball tossers. Corbett says he will wager J1.000 on the result of the contest.

Fendenheim was dreaming that he was engaged in a fistic encounter with "Gentleman Jim," and the knockout blow landed on a window alongside his bed, shattering a pane of glass and cut ting his hand in a frightful manner. Although given prompt medical atten tion Fendenheim is in a very bad shape, as much of the glass could not be dug out, and he is now in great danger of lockjaw. ARE MATCHED AGAIN.

Although ar ticles were not actually signed, Benny Yanger and Eddie Hanlon will have their little unpleasantness out in Sep tember before the Hayes Valley club on exactly the same terms as they fought under last Tuesday night, Mike Short signified his willingness to rematch Hanlon, and Manager Hertz put his name at the bottom of a copy of his or iginal articles for Yanger before catch ing a train for Chicago. New Football Rules. After studying the new rules under consideration by the football rules com mittee, the one conclusion is that it is absolutely impossible to tell how they will work out in actual play. Walter Camp last year said one of the main desires of the committee was to Increase the interesting features of the game to add more of the spectacular and de crease the steady, close plugging to which most of the big teams were de voting their efforts. A careful reading of the proposed rules seems to show that variety will be sacrificed rather than increased by some of the rules, while the others will not have nearly as great an effect as might be supposed. The rule keeping seven men in the rush line between the twenty-five-yard marks means that the game Is reduced absolutely to the so-called straight foot ball in that every lineman must . run from his position if he carries the ball. Also that a man cannot be pulled back for interference. But it takes i un usually perfect team, composed of un usually capable football players, to play the so-called straight football effective ly, and the probability of there being more than one such team in these parts in a season is remote. Georgetown plays a wider circle of college teams than any others here, and it follows that the style of play, if adopted, will conform to that of other big colleges. It seems that monotony is likely to re sult from this restriction, as variety in play is almost sure to be sacrificed, and the amount of kicking is certain to be greatly increased. It seems a possi bility, according to some football ex perts, that a tedious exchange of punts fir After Mental Exer tionNo Rest. Nervous, Irritable and Wretched. Dr. Miles Nervine Saved .My Life.

If it is true that kicking is to be much more frequent next fall, it also means that fumbling Is likely to be more fre quent, unless the coaches have better handlers of punts than they have had in the past. The direct pass from the center to any man selected to carry the ball will be watched with a great deal of in terest. The use of a lot of long passes always hazardous plays will be un avoidable. Here, also, arises a fine chance for fumbling. This will be par ticularly true when the quarterback carries, the ball, for by the clause re quiring him to pass the line of scrim mage five yards from the center he is virtually restricted to end ..rjuns and long passes must be used. '"' - This seven-men-on-the-line-rule has as one of its objects & desire to bring back the old-style quick opening and line plunges, and if it does work out this wav considerable good will come of it. Provision for the protection of the fullback is an excellent move. Most of the coaches, too, are likely to ap prove of the penalty of distance ratner than the loss of the ball for holding. Taken all in all. It must be said that there is a little too much rule making about football. The game is now so surrounded with rules that a football guide is needed unless one is a constant student of the game, and with the new modifications it will take nan the season to get wise. Also the check erboard rrn cement to a football re porter looks like a thing of horror and a promoter of either inebriety or in sanity. It is bad enough for anybody to watch the distance up ana aowii th field hut when it comes to looking i-Tvwsti-l.qp as well to see whether the quarterback has stepped off his required paces, the idea tnat one or me iuic committee must be an oculist looking for trade seems not far fetched. If these rules make the game more open it will be a good thing. But if with openness it also brings monotony and lots of fumbling, it will not be so good. ... The intentions of the committee were undoubtedly good. The practical appli cation of their intentions must first be viewed on the gridiron before any one can say the work is good, bad, or in different. Opinion appears to be di vided among the football coaches, but the majority see some improvement in them. Washington fost CORRIGAN MAKES A KILLING.
