The Happenings Which Berell a Rov ing Emporia youth. The Emporia Gazette says: In Max Tingling Kinporia has a boy who has the true roving spirit. Fevered with that spirit of unrest which the Ger mans call "wanderlust," he has with in the past few years visited various climes and countries. Although but 2 5 years of age. Max lacks only about 2.000 miles of having circumnavi gated the globe. Last June the wander-call having grown too strong to be repressed. Max packed his grip and set his face westward. Somewhere in the Rock ies Max met with Dr. Adams, a young fellow In search of health. The two became fast friends, and set out to gether for a six weeks' hunt among the mountains. They met with good pport at every turn, and shot deer, grouse, and other game in fibundance. On their trip they bagged three bears, and finally managed to have their camp burned in a forest fire. They went to Seattle. Wast!., where they found opportunity to ship as able sea men in the Governor Robie. a sailing vessel bound for Cape Town, Africa, with a cargo of lumber. So the two chums found themselves sailing before the mast at the munifi cent salary of JiO a month. The crew was a rough set of men of mixed na tionality Americans, Irish, Japs, Swedes and what not. The passage was a rough one and it took fifteen weks to make Cane Town. Max and his friend soon learned the ropes and each day found them busy with their tasks. Of these the most disagreeable was what sailors call "holv-stoning" the deck. At this the crew worked in four hour shifts Holv-stontnK" the deck consists of scrubbing and scouring the rough, tarred deck with sand and brick. Max nvs be toiled at this till every bone in his body ached miserably, and it seemed his back would surely break. Once ilurine' the voyage a French man and an American cuarreieo auu fell to fighting with a razor and an iron bar. Hnd the skipper promptly cast them in irons. Mother Carey's r-hickens were freouent visitors. As they were crossing the tropics they fished and caught more albacores. dol phins, ship-jacks and bunitas than the cooks knew what to do with. Max tells some interesting things concerning the customs aboard ship. There were four meals a day. At 5 in the morning coffee and sea biscuit were served. At 8 o'clock came break fast, at 12:30 dinner, and at 5 came supper. Most of the fare was made ' salt-norse ana y- they were becalmed for three . days. Here they caught an albatross. Sailing now continued uneventful un til they drew near to Cape Town. Here a Russian squadron passed across the bows of the Governor Robie at a dis tance of not more than half a mile. When within ten miles of Cape" Town a sudden storm struck tne vessel, aim they were driven back to sea. So far were they driven from their course that it took ten days to get into port. , The two friends went ashore at Cape Town, and set out for Kimberly. This they found to be a town about the size of Emporia, with over 2,000 unemployed men, and 150 police. From here they went up the Orange river picking dia monds on tiietr own hook. Meeting with but sennt luck at this they started for Port Elizabeth, with the view or going on the police force here. From Kimber ly to Port EUzaoetn is a aistance ui about 1,000 miles. This was covered mrtlv bv rail. rjartlv by tracking, and partly on foot. On this journey, while bathing in a pool, Max was charged upon and severely wounded tn the calf of the leg by a wild boar. This and a fnil from the train so crippled him that he could not keep his appointment with the police. At Port Elizabeth the adventurers decided to come home. Accordingly they set sail for London by the Union Castle line. In London Max spent ten days visiting Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, the British Museum and other points of interest. He next took passage on the Oceanic from Liv erpool, and after a storm, but other wise uneventful voyage across the At lantic, arrived in New York harbor. .After spending a few days in New Tork and Washington, he set out for home, returning by way of Chicago, and arriving here Friday evening. Acting in accordance with the recom mendation of State Auditor Wells, the late legislature passed a law providing for the assessment and taxation of pri vate car lines by the state board of rail road assessors. These private car lines are said to be the way the beef trust and other big corporations secure their rebates from the railroad companies, and they have always escaped taxation in Kansas. J. M. Nation, assistant state auditor, is now working on a plan for assessing these private car lines. He says that woik will be greater this year than all the rest of the work of the board, be cause there is nothing to guide it. In vestigations will have to be made and reports secured from the railroad com panies and compared with reports from the owners of the private lines. "The assessment of these private car lines will have to be made on a differ ent basis from that of the railroads said Mr. Nation in discussing the mat ter "and it will require more work to . tv.o vstem this year than to make all of the railroad assessment. It must be figured out just how many cars are required to handle business in Kan sas The information must come from both the private car lines and the rail martsj which haul the cars. .tcv. mart will have to keep one man employed on making the divisions the year around. The new law has just been published. The first assessment under it must be made within the next 30 days. It will therefore be imperfect. But we will do the best we can under the circumstances and get as much pro perty on the list as possible. The rail roads are ready to help us. I don t know how the private car companies will perform. We will getr wnat ipioit mation we can from the roads first and then tackle the private companies. Tne state should reap considerable tax mon ey from the private car lines whicn have escaped taxation in the past. what Kansas has been mnv he trained when it is. known that the greater part of the Cal ifornia orange and lemon crop goes east through Kansas. This crop amounts to about 25.000 cars a year and probably not less than two-thirds of it passes through Kansas. The Santa Fe owns most of the cars it uses in the Cali fornia orange trade, but the Southern. Pacific uses nothing but cars owned by nrivto rar lines mostly Armour cars. These practically all come east by way of El Faso. and from there over the Rock Island through. Kansas. This is on one item alone. The shipments made in these private cars amount to a large proportion of the railroad business each yeai. ' HO BACK SEAT. SNAP SHOTS'.

Solution to Race Suicide Problem Said to Have Been Found. Boston, March 21. Birth insurance as an incentive for the furtherance of the ideas of President Roosevelt -for the rearing of large families is now proposed and the first organization of the kind in this country will begin business this coming week. Last July the American Birth In surance company was incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts, fostered by some of the most promi nent women of the country, and now, its promoters having secured the 500 applications for policies requisite un der trie law. to begin business, this unique insurance will be given a test. Oiiices have been opened in this city. which is to be . the headquarters of the company, and they are in charge of prominent club women who have taken an active part in the formation of the concern, and next Monday tne first policy will be written. One of the first applicants and probably the first to receive a policy is Mrs. Durkee, wife of Rev. J. Stan ley Durkee, pastor of the Warren Street Baptist church of this city. She made application when the charter was taker! out' and has been one of the most prominent agitators of the subject. Rev. Mr. Durkee heartily in dorses the idea of birth insurance and applauds the ideals which prompted the incorporators in this work. "When the matter was presented to me," he said, "I looked it up carefully and it appears to me to be the ideal remedy for a great many of the prob lems which are hampering the Amer ican people today and especially the poorer classes of the laboring people.

They involve a larga amount of money and are of an ex traordinary character. The United States bought the Cherokee outlet, agreeing to pay 8, 300, 000, being about jl an acre, and also agreein to reopen a long standing controversy with the Cherokees. In 18 35 a treaty was made under which the Cherokees were to move or be removed from Georgia, Alabama nd Tennessee to Indian territory. The Cherokees con tended that under the provisions of the treaty they were not to be mads to pay the cost of moving from homes which they did not wish to leave. Tha government held to the contrary. In the present suit the court of claims decides that the account trans mitted by the secretary of the interior, followed by the inaction of congress renders the United States liable for the rest of Jl, 111. 284. with interest from June 12, 183S, which amounts approximately to 4 V4 million dollars.
