HAVEN'T GIVEN UP.
Tcojilc of North Side AVill Again Try
for Drainage District.
Not dismayed by their first failure,
the people of North Topeka and the ad
joining teriitory who want protection
from future inundations from Soldier
cieek and the Kavv river. Monday pre
sented another petition for the creation
of a f '.. ' benefit district. The coun
ty ccmmi? feners examined it, and
tound that it had the lequisite number
denatures of resident taxpayers. There
upon a hearirg cf the matter was set
for May 28. one week from yesterday, at
which time any persons having objec
tirns to the matter, must appear and
file them. If none of the objections
are valid, then the oiganization of the
dirtrict wiil be ordered.
A total of 6fi4 names were signed to
the petition. According to the law, two
fifths of the total number of resident
taxpayers must ailix their names to the
petition. In order to make a petition
valid for the pic posed district there
would have to be 488 signatures. But
theie are 604 names to the petition filed
today, and every one of them is ac
ceptable in the eyes of the law.
"I think every signature on the peti
tion is good," said Commsisioner Sterne
this morning. "We made a very care
ful examination, going over the peti
tion with the most minute scrutiny. I
can see no fault with it at all. I do not
know whether any objections will be
raised to it."
Once before a petition was filed by
the people who wished protection from
Inundation, but it was knocked out upon
objection that it did not contain the
names of two-fifths of the resident tax
payers. It was shown that quite a
number of taxpayers who lived on the
south side of the river signed the pe
tition. The law specifically implies that
the signer must not only be a property
holder but he must be a "resident."
Ho the promoters of the new petition
avoided that error this time. They
examined the tax rolls of the county
and saw to It that every name on the
petition is perfectly valid. Judge Z.
T. Hazen and John Sehenok were em
ployed as attorneys by the objecting
parties against the former petition.
Neither of them has anything to say
about the present one, whether objec
tions will be made, or whether they
have been retained to make them.
The proposed district contains about
SO whole sections. It runs from a point
east of Silver Lake to a point just east
of North Topeka. In width it extends
back from the river distances varying
from three to seven mtles. It i- the
plan to run a chain of dykes along Sol
dier creek to prevent that dangerous
little stream from inundating the neigh
boring land. But the main scheme is
to build a ditch about four miles in
length, just west of North Topeka. be
tween Soldier creek and the Kaw river.
It is thought that this additional outlet
from the creek, will prevent the trou
ble which has always been occasioned
by the overflow from the arm of the
creek as it bends in a southeasterly
direction around North Topeka. Levees
and dykes are also to be built at low
places along the Kaw river.
A second drainage district was also
ret for hearing on next Monday. It
lies east of North Topeka and embraces
about 12 sections. The board found that
the petition contained a requisite num
ber of taxpayers, as well as the larger
petition. If both of these districts are
created, then about 42 sections of land,
which have suffered from floods during
the past few years will be protected.
It ie planned to spend about $100,000 on

FRISCO SUMMER SCHOOLS
Open for a Three Months' Course In
Golden Gate Park.
San Francisco, May 22. The sum
mer vacation school opened yesterday
in Golden Gate park, with Albert M.
Armstrong as principal.
The militia, at the request of the
school board, had supplied 17 tents
to accommodate the little refugees.
These are scattered over the park, and
it was no small task to get the various
grades classified and located. On the
recreation grounds. the children's
playgrounds, in the baseball park and
on the main driveway the tents are
located and nowhere in the country
can be found nearly 600 children more
comfortably housed. It is expected
that at least 1,500 children will soon
be in attendance.
Each tent is built to accommodate
20 pupils and is equipped with desks
and blackboards. There are numer
ous books on hand.
Reading and arithmetic will be paid
particular attention to while the
classes are indoors. There will be
many excursions through the park, so
that the pupils can be taught from na
ture. History will be illustrated by
the monuments, zoology by visits to
the animal pens, botany by the
wealth of wild flowers, and so on down
the list of studies. Cooking will be
taught by specialists, and the children
will prepare their own lunches. The
school will be in operation three
months.
CENSUS TAKERS RESIGN.
Hunting Children in Chicago's Fash
ionable Districts Unprofitable.
Chicago, May 22. Census takers for
the school board assigned vo the Lake
Shore drive and Kenwood precincts
gave up their positions yesterday. So
did those who had walked all day along
Calumet, Prairie and Michigan avenues
ringing door bells and trying to locate
minors. Forty enumerators handed
their resignations to Secretary Larson
after they had spent a day scouring the
"race suicide" districts in the effort to
find a dinner's worth of children. The
census takers are paid at the rate of
one cent a name for all children lo
cated. Every enumerator wanted to be as
signed to the Ghetto, and forty of those
who were given fashionable precincts
gave up the work as bad and unprofit
able. Fifteen enumerators who had been
assigned to the fashionable wards an
nounced they had found permanent
positions: a half dozen found them
selves suddenly overcome by illness;
one had to go home and look after the
baby, and several were discharged for
incompetency.
At a late hour it was reported that
all of the enumerators who had been
assigned to the Ghetto were still at
work. So were those who had been
sent into the stock yards district and
into the communities around the set
tlement houses.
Carpenters' Strike Not Justified.
New York, May 22. Supreme Court
Justice Wiliiam J. Gaynor of Brooklyn
yesterday submitted his decision as ar
bitrator of the differences between the
master carpenters' association and the
joint district council of Greater New
York which two weeks ajo resulted in
a strike of the carpenters in the
borough of Brooklyn.
He finds that the action of the strik
ers was unjustified, being in violation
of their written agreement. He holds
that the present scales of wages must
remain in force until July 1, which
was the date fixed for the Increase of
wages in all the boroughs.

UNITED STATES BEHIND.
Are Neglecting Opportunities in Ori
ental Markets.
New York, May 22. O. P. Austin,
chief of the burea t of statistics of the
department of commerce and labor, de
livered an address on the "Neglected
opportunities in oriental markets," be
fore the Manufacturers' association last
night. The address was accompanied
by a large number of illustrations se
cured by Mr. Austin in his recent trip
around the world in the.. interest of
American commerce. .
Mr. Austin explained that they de
picted the customs and daily life among
t;.c people of the Orient and suggested
the peculiar requirements of the mar
kets which exist among them.
"The imports of the Oriental coun
tries amount to nearly two billions of
dollars annually," he said, "and more
than one billion dollars worth of this
is of a kind of material w hich we of the
United States might supply. Yet we
are at present accomplishing little, very
little, indeed, in supplying this great
market.
"In that great section of the Orient
which lies in the tropics and has more
than half its people and commerce we
supply but one per cent of the one biilion
dollars worth of merchandise imported,
and are making no gains; while Europe
which makes and sells nothing that we
cannot make and sell, is supplying sixty-six
per cent of the imports, and
steadily increasing her sales.
"The causes of our failure in the.
Orient are quite apparent to any one
who will take the trouble to visit these
countries and study the requirements
of the market as created by the habits
of the consuming population.
"The Oriental people form a distinct
section of the commercial world, a sec
tion in which the commercial lines are
as distinctly marked as those which sep
arate the great geographical divisions
of the world. .....
"The daily customs of life among the
Orientals differ in such an extreme
degree from those of the people of the
Occident that the merchandise manu
factured for use in Europe or America,
as a rule, is not suited to their habits
of life. The meaning of this is that
these who successfully offer goods to
the Oriental people obtain this success
by offering articles made in frrrm to
satisfy the habits and therefore the re
quirements of those people. This is the
secret of success in Oriental markets."

A POOR MAN'S COUNTRY.
So United States Must Have a Poor
Man's Government.
New York, May 22. "Think of the
United States as a poor man's country
that must have a poor man's govern

ver. United States senator from Iowa,
gave the graduating class of the Pack
ard Commercial school at its com
mencement exercises last night.
Senator Dolliver made a plea for
the man who had risen from a humble
boy in the country. "Character," he said
"comes up into a man from the plowed
ground through his bare feet. Abra
ham Lincoln was such a man, the Amer
ican type at its best, born of discipline
and hard work, more royal than a
king."
The senator scored morbid schools of
social science that despair of any rem

ditions. "The law of human life is the law of
labor, sacrifice and struggle," declared
the speaker. "Men and nations be

ment in the condition of Lolita Arm
our, who will remain in Vienna until
the middle of next month, while her
parents go on a motoring tour into
Switzerland and France.
"Beyond a certain awkwardness in
some of her movementB," said the sur
geon, "the malformation has disappear
ed and her strength for walking, run
ning, jumping and dancing is perfectly
normal. I have little doubt that every
trace of the original trouble has finally
vanished and that no further surgical
attention is likely to be necessary. Still
it is desirable that I should see the
patient at intervals of one or two years
until her recovery is absolute. If Lolita,
who is a beautiful girl, but inclined to
stoutness, were of a slighter figure, the
cure would have been complete before
now-."
FOUR MORE VICTIMS.

Food Cure
NATURE'S
WAY
See Diet List Below.
HEALTH REGAINED VIA FOOD.
A man may try all sorts of drugs to
help him to get rjsil. cut, after all, the
"food cure' 'is the method intended by
Nature. -
Anyone can prove the efficacy of the
food cure by making use of the follow
ing breakfast each morning for fifteen
or twenty days:
A dish containing not more than four
heaping teaspoonfuls of Grape-Nuts
food, enough good, rich cream to go
with It, some raw or cooked fruit, not
more than two slices of entire wheat
bread, and not more than one cup of
Postum Food Coffee, to be sipped, not
drank hurriedly. Let this suffice for
the breakfast.
Let one meal in the day consist of an
abundance of good meat, potato, and
one other vegetable.
This method wiil quickly prove the
value of the selection of the right kind
of food to rebuild the body and replace
the lost tissue which is destroyed every
day and must be made up, of disease of
some sort enters in. This is an age of
specialists, and the above suggestions
are given by a specialist in food, diet
etics and hygiene.

THE INDEPENDENT TELEPHONE CO.
Where they play tomorrow:
Springfield at Topeka,
Webb City at Joplln.
Wichita at St. Joe.
Oklahoma at Leavenworth.
Billy Kimmel has given it out at
Wichita that he has practically
secured Hank Gehring for the Jobbers.
He also Bays that Johnny Filiman will
join his team to play third base in the
place of Rathburn, who exploded, and
was sent to Leavenworth. He is now
trying out Billy Dammann, just releas
ed by Topeka.
From the Leaven worth Times: The
Leavenworth team is now in the pre
dicament of carrying five pitchers, two
shortstops (providing Pennington re
turns) and two third basemen with the
possibility that none will be released
immediately. Rathburn, the new Wich
ita man, will first have to show what
he can do on third and it will then also
have to be decided which of the five
pitchers is to be sold. In addition three
catchers have been carried all this time
owing to the injuring of Corbin and
McDowell in the first game at Webb
City and either Kern or McDowell will
have to go. The work of Kern behind
the stick has not been particularly im
pressive the first four games at home
and it . is now claimed that he is not a
catcher, but an outfielder, who is, how
ever, able to catch.
President Baker, of Joplin. has offer
ed Springfield $3flO for Third Baseman
Gus Hetlir.g. Smiling John almost re
garded the offer as an insult.
Springfield is to have a hew second
baseman which means Tommy Cope
will have to go. Mister Shinn refuses
to tell who he is.
President Shiveley says that the Pen
nington case at Leavenworth is a very
questionable affair, the outcome of
which is hard to predict. "Pennington
first told me that he had a nonreserve
contract with Boone last year," said
Shiveley.-"'When the matter was brought
up he confessed that he had a reserve
contract, but row claims that no con
tract was presented to him this year.
That is his contention at this time and
upon it he hopes to be reinstated at
Leavenworth by Secretary Farrell. The
fact .hat he did not tell the straight of
the matter right at the beginning has
worked against him. I do not know
wl.at the outcome will be."
Bill Rapps got $27 for knocking a
home run at Leavenworth on Sunday.
That is the record price for a four
sacker. An amusing story on old "Dick"
Cooley is told by Davy Jones, of the
Detroit Americans.
"I never saw a crowd laugh so hard
as it did in Chicago one day while 'Dick'
was doing one of his famous sprints
round the diamond for Boston," says
Jones. " 'Dick' was the first man up ia
the game and be hit the first ball pitch
ed on a line out toward my field. I
sprinted for all I had in me. going back
and off to the side and, as luck would
have it. just got the ball in one hand.
"At the time Cooley was busy turning
first base. He gave a glance, saw I was
still on the run I hadn't had time to
slow down and dug for second, think
ing certainly that the ball was past me.
Well, I saw the joke, and I kept run
ning, too.
"Cooley, turning second base, saw me.
far out in the field, throw the ball to an
infielder, who was obviously going to
reiay it In. Poor 'Dick' passed third
and dug for the plate like a wild man.
He hit the dirt at the finish, making an

From the Webb City Times on the
team's return from Topeka: Webb
City fans are feeling fine. They are
proud of Dick Rohn's aggregation,
every one of them. They have made a
good record, although they dropped
three out cf four to Topeka. The
White Sox had somebody to hold the
light for them and, in fact, they had to
take every point won by a hard fought
contest. The Topeka aggregation is
looked upon here as the strongest team,
in the association.
Smiling John Shlnn, secretary and

his comment. "I don't want the money
any way and he stays with Springfield.
Wrhy I wouldn't trade him for Dick;
Cooley."
