The following from the Taloga
Times of May 17 will be of interest to
the many friends of the McMaster
family in Topeka: "The grim angel
of death has once more descended in
our midst and laid his icy hand on one
of the fairest of our number, Loudell,
the beloved wife of Harry F. Swartz,
who died at 10 o'clock a. m. on the
12th inst., aged 26 years 7 months and
8 days. Loudell McMaster Swartz was
born in Topeka. Kan., October 4, 1879.
where she resided continuously until
December, 1903, when Mr. Swartz
brought her as his bride to make her
home in our little city. She was a
woman of fine character, accomplish
ed, and of kind disposition, and loved
by all who knew her. Unusual sad
ness prevaded the scenes surrounding
the deathbed of budding motherhood,
and there is a grip on the heart that
philosophy does not altogether heal.
But the ways of Providence are be
yonu our short human vision. There is
a Oivinity that shapes our ends 'rough
hew them as we may." The reasons
which guide Him cannot be penetrated
by the feeble sight of human wisdom
and we can only bow our heads in
meek submission to the divine decree
and say, 'Thy will be done.' The fact
that Mrs. Swartz had two days before
her death become a mother and left
a tender little plant that needed her
care and love has made the death an
unusually touching one. The de
ceased had been sick about two weeks
and the immediate cause of her death
was uraemic poison. Everything that
tender hands and sympathetic minds
could conveive was done to alleviate
the suffering and pain. The entire
community feels and deplores the loss
it has sustained in the death of Mrs.
Swartz, and in common with all we
extend our heartfelt sympathy to the
bereaved husband and relatives in
their sad hour of affliction. The par
ents of Mrs. Swartz. Mr. and Mrs. Mc
Master. had been summoned from
California by wire and arrived in time
for the last sad rites but just too lffte
to Fee their only daughter alive. The
afflicted grandparents will take Lou
dell Marion, the little new born babe,
to Topeka to live with them In their
old home. The services were held at
the family residence on the 13th at 2
o'clock, Rev. Mr. Beach of the M. E.
church officiating. The remains were
followed to the Taloga cemeterv by a
large and sorrowful concourse of rela
tives and friends."
Cost $25 to Carry a Revolver.
C. W. Wilson, who came to Topeka
last night for the first time, had been

arrested for carrying a deadly weapon,

directed him to a hotel. Instead of

was arrested. A large revolver was

Great Norwegian Poet and
Uraniatist Passes Away.
Was Two Years Short of the 80
Narrowly Escaped Imprison
ment at One Time.
Has Written Slany Well Known
Christiania, Norway, May 23 Henrik
Ibsen, the Norwegian poet and drama
tist, died this afternoon.
Ibsen was born at Skien. a small vil
lage on the Langesund Fjord, Norway,
March 20, 1828. While in his twentieth
year he became an apothecary's clerk
in the village of Grimstad, during which
period he wrote several poems which
were published in country papers, and
of which but one, Til Ungarn, survives.
While preparing for Christiania uni
versity he wrote a drama, entitled Cata
lina, which was rejected by the theaters
and publishers, and was printed at last
at the expense of a friend, the total
sales being but thirty copies. The same
year he entered Christiania university
and began writing for the daily and
other periodicals, and he closed the year
by obtaining the presentation or a one
act play, Kjaempehojen, at the Chris
tiania theater.

Henrik Ibsen, Great Xomegian Poet,
Who Died Today.
At this period Ibsen was a radical and
a pronounced socialist, a contributor to
the famous Michael Thrane's paper and
or . of a party of students who made
an organized protest against the ex
pulsion of another leading agitator from
the country'. Ibsen narrowly escaped
imprisonment with Thrane when the
latter was arrested and his paper sup
pressed. Ibsen also afterwards joined
two other young radicals in founding
the weekly Andhrimmer. His Chris
tiania career was cut short by the offer
of the post of theater director at Ber
gen, the second city of Norway, with a
trin abroad to study methods ana an
engagement for five years.
No doubt the poet's remarkable liana-
ling was largely due to his having ac
cepted this proposal and thus having
long studied the drama rrom the stand
point of the actual presentation.
His first drama at Bergen, sanc-
thansnat, was not successful and was
not published. The next, Fru Inger til
Ostraat. a play based upon that period
of Norway's history when her ancient
kings were making their last stand
against the triumphant Danish in
vaders, was well received and. Is still
considered one of his best acting
dramas. It is especially noteworthy
as furnishing a female tragic part
only comparable in modern tragedies
to that of Lady Macbeth. Two other
dramas based upon the almost mythi
cal stories of the Viking period, Gildet
Paa Solhaug and Haermaendene paa
Helgeland, were also successful. A
short roetical drama, Olaf Liljekrano,
was also produced but not published.
From fragments of this, Henrik Jaeg
er, Ibsen's biographer, is of the opin
ion that it was a rude sketch of the
same motive which afterward pro
duced Ibsen's greatest dramatic poem,
When his engagement closed Ibsen
returned to Christia.nia, and in com
pany with Biornstjerne Bjornson and
others organized the pro-Norsk liter
ary and dramatic movement which re
sulted m the founding of an opposi
tion theater at Christiania, known as
the Norsk theater. The movement was
so far successful that the other
theater had to bend to popular opinion
and dismiss its Danish actors. Isben's
Bergen-trained actors soon became
favorites. But two theaters made re
turns small for both, and not only was
the reward of playwrlters small, but at
last the Norsk theater had to succumb.
While the pro-Norsk movement was
popular, Ibsen was regarded as queer
and out of harmony with the prevail
ing literary spirit, which was pervad
ed by Bjornson's earlier romantic and
idyllic tales.
Ibsen produced two dramas, one,
Kongsemnerne, based on events of the
period of the early kings of Norway,
and the other, Kjaerligheden's Kome-
die, the precursor of his social dramas.
The latter he tried to write in prose.
This Is the Resison Why Stansfleld
Recommends Wadswortli Bros.'
"In the last few months," said Mr.
George W. Stansfleld, druggist, 632
Kansas avenue. Topeka. "I have gain
ed a wonderful sale for Wadsworth
Bros.' Chlcos. These cigars give better
value for the money than any other I
have ever seen. My pride in giving
my customers the best of goods for the
least money makes me recommend the
Chlcos to those who were smoking ten
or fifteen cent goods."
Chlcos have a long Havana filler,
burn freely with a pleasant fragrance
and are a mild and enjoyable smoke
that pleases the most fastidious. "It
is only about once in a hundred times,"
he continued, "that I find a cigar equal
to its manufacturer's claims, but in
Chicos I found one even better, one
that fully confirmed what Wadsworth
Bros, asserted, a better cigar for less
money. -
"It sells for five cents straight, and
as I said before. I recommend It to all
who want a good cigar no matter what
the price."

but after several attempts, abandoned
that idea and wrote it in rhymed verse,
being unable to give over the dignified
language of historical drama and em
ploy the speech of the modern drawing
room. This drama offended the pub
lic, being practically a defense of
"mariage de convenance," a position
especially distasteful to those who
were imbued with the tijornsonesque
spirit of that day. Bjornson and Ibsen,
who had been college mates, were then
and always firm friends. During this
period Ibsen wrote his two greatest
lyric poems, Terje Viken and Paa
The Norwegian storthing had voted
Bjornson a "distergage" or poet's pension.
A motion to give the same to Ibsen was
rejected, but a small sum was granted
him wherewith to travel. He visited Ger
many, Austria, Italy and France, being
absent from Norway tor- ten years. In
the first vear he wrote Brand, and in the
second Peer Gvnt. two great symbolical
dramas in verse, of the general character
of Goethe's Faust, which were brought
out bv his new publishers In Copenhagen.
Though symbolical, they had a strong hu
man interest, and were instantly success
ful, being regarded as the most powerful
interpretations of Norwegian racial char
acter ever published.
It was five years after his departure
from Norwav before he published a prose
drama for actual stage presentation, Ie
I'ngea Forbund. This was the first of his
great modern social dramas, and its per
fection of expression showed a marvellous
change since when he had been compelled
to write a snc'.Tl py in verse in order to
express himself. The presentation of this
drama at Christiaoia caused great excite
ment and from that moment Ibsen's sway
over the Norwegian stage was complete.
Already in 18fl6 his accomplishments as a
poet had brought him the "distergage."
He returned to Norway a short time in
1S73, at about the time that his double
drama, Kejser of Gallilaeer, based on the
career of the Emperor Julian, was pub
lished. Though in prose, this is a sym
bolical novel of the type ot tsrano. ana
Peer Gynt. For many years Ibsen resided
at Munich, occasionally returning to Nor
way. At Munich most of his social dra
mas were written, namely: Samfundets
Stofteo. It Dukkehjem, Gjengangere, En
Folkefiends, Vildanden, Rcsmershoh, and
Fruen fra Havet. While living in Chrlst
tlanla he produced Hedda Gabler. Byg
mester Solness. Lille Eyolf and John Ga
briel Borkhan. Of his social dramas the
most famous are Ft Dukkehjem. Gjen
gangerne and En Folkeftende.
Ibsen's plays have been translated into
all the principal languages and many cf
them have been producf-d in this country
with more or less success, the best re
ceived being HPdda Gabler. Peer Gynt, A
Doll House and Ghosts. Minnie Maddern

Ed Wilkerson, a carpenter who it is
charged robbed J. W. Barber, a To

Lucas will start after him tonight.
The robbery was committed while
the new Topeka club building was in
the course of construction. Barber,
the contractor, was paying off his
workmen one Saturday afternoon. He
stood behind a board, which was used
as a counter, and paid the men as they
passed him. When Wilkerson's turn
come, it is claimed, he snatched the
money in eight, $200, and ran. He
made a bee line for the jungles, and
was not overtaken by police officers
who hastily took the trail. Descrip

larger cities by Sheriff Lucas, and it
appears that he called at the "stricken
