Garnett, Kan., Sept. 12. The Republican
primaries in Anderson county Saturday
afternoon were contested bitterly in every
precinct. In the congressional fight here

blow which was followed by almost

over dead. The authorities viewed
the matter as purely accidental. A
ventricle of Tilghman's heart was
found to have given away.

It Is Larger and Better Than Ever
A full half mile of snow-white dogs and
ponies, neatly cropped, combed and .trim
med, the former sitting saucily upright in
miniature red and gold chariots, drawn
by a hundred equine Shetland beauties, is
what the Gentry Bros, showed the thou
sands of parents and children who lined
the downtown streets to witness this
morning's parade. But that was not all:
There was a great herd of elephants from
and weighed but:.!1 pounds, lesterday
the midget Shetland tipped the scales at
23 pound and was frisking marrlly about
under cages, guy ropes and the heel of
hi larger associates. No equine annals
show the existence of a pony of such di
minutive proportions, and Little "Clo"
is the envy of ail showmen.
The youngster, being of such tend?
years and siz Is not allowed to take pnrt
in the parades, but Is carefully guarded
a.nd rides in a special car with its mother,
"Thimble," herself the smallest of tha
actor ponies.
The famous Kltamura family of RnrI
Japanese entertainers were astride dapper

specimens of their race, from Siberia: a

mysterious Thibet. All but the latter are
actors, and a wonderful four-footed fam
ily it was. They reached Topeka aarly
Sunday morning and left their cushioned
quarters on the show train with a leap
and a bound, glad to breathe the cool
morning air after their-heated period of
the past few days.
After being comfortably housed in the
big white tents at Jefferson and Ninth
streets, the great animal family was vis
ited by throngs of admirers all day long,
for the Gentry, as usual, raised the Bide
walls and gave the public free access.
Little "Cloquet," the tiniest pony, per
haps, in existence was the nucleus of a
throng of children and was the object cf
continual pattmg. "Clo" is but five weeks
old and at birth stood but 14 Inches high,
wonderful Japanese acrobat living. He
rode in a tiny two-wheeled rig and wor ;
