It is not necessary to invest a large sum in the furnishings of the room, for charming results may be obtained by combining originality and taste in the selection of fit tings and furnishings. For many houses it is well to use darker woods, such as fumed or weathered oak or mahogany; -but in many other houses the lighter finishes are available.

FIREMEN WERE BUSY. Olacli," Maltese Cat, Fifrures as Hero at Kltngenberg Home. Mack, a ret maltese cat, savfwi the lives of Prof, and Mrs. Alf Klingen berk from suffocation at an early Sun day morning fire at their home, 1425 Vest street. The cat was proving to be something ct a nuisance during- the evening by Insisting on remaining in the bedroom de ppite futile attempts to put him out. Finally hi3 persistence won and he was allowed to stay In the room. Early in the morning he jumped upon the bed and started to walk about but was removed by Mr. Klingenberg. Later Mrs. Kllngenberg awakened to find the cat at her neck mewing and scratching. She got up half asleep 1n response to the cat's warnings to dis cover what was amiss, finding that the room was filling up quickly with dense Fmoke which was pouring into the room 'from the kitchen through a bath room. The smoke was so thick that it render ed her dizzy. Her husband awoke at her call of alarm arid the two aroused their neighbors. A fire alarm was sent in but 6tation No. 5, which is but a block away had responded to an alarm in another part of the city and by the time that the department appeared on the scene the fire was well under con trol of the people who lived near and who fought the flames. The kitchen and bath room were badly scorched and the damage will be confined to these two rooms covered by insurance. Two years ago Professor and Mrs. Klingenberg lost all their household be longings In a fire on College Hill. Prof. Khr:gcnberg is the dean of the Wash burn school of music. Sunday's fire or iginated from basket of rags saturated with linseed oil. A few hours later in the east part of the city the 3-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Robinson of 1207 East Fourth street was badly burned while playing with parlor matches. The little chap had gotten out of bed unknown to his parents who were both asleep and see ing an attractive looking box of match es proceeded to light one match after another, watching them burn down to nothing. In lighting one match a spark rlew off and lighting on the inflamma ble material of his night dress wrap ped him in a mass of flames. His screams awoke his parents, Mrs. Rob inson running to him and tearing off his nightdress. Mrs. Robinson was rather badly burned about the hands in this attempt but saved the child from further injury. The burns on the little boy were on the abdomen, face and right arm. Dr. R. E. Massey. who dressed the wounds stated that they would not result fatally and did not think they would leave a scar. Sunday morning at 2 o'clock an alarm was turned In from the Devon flats at Twelfth and , Taylor streets where a small market5 basket filled with rags and standing In a hallway was, the source of a fire which started to spread down the hall and awakened occupants in time to keep the fire from doing fur ther damage. In the afternoon spontaneous con bustion in a woodshed at 1529 Mulvane street caused the third run for the day. The fire started from a barrel of lime The loss was inconsequential. JOLT FOR COOPER. His Last Matrimonial Adventure Cost Him at Least $4,000. A jury in district court Saturday evening decided that Mrs. Virginia Bower, the plaintiff in the damage suit for $25,000 against John G. Cooper, the aged man of many loves, had been damaged about $4,000 worth by the defendant. The case was on hearing two days before it went to the jury. In the first half, it looked as though the plaintiff was loser. An excellent col lection of alibis furnished by Mr. Cooper, which consisted of witnesses, who all swore that Mrs. Bower had told them that she wdtxid not marry any man, but that certain persons were trying to induce her to sue- the old man for breach of promise, prom ised to wreck the hopes of- the plain tiff, but later -A. M. Harvey, attorney for Mrs. Bower, turned the tables bj casting discredit on the testimony of several of the witnesses for the de fense, and closing the case" with a strong argument to the jury. The jury, however, decided that Mrs. Bow er's affections were not worth $25,000. It is rumored that each member of the jury was sure that Mrs. Bower had been damaged, but each held a different opinion as to the amount of such damage, and the final verdict was reached after adding that com bined guesses and dividing by 12. This is the fourth time Mr. Cooper has been a victim of Cupid's mistakes. Three years ago his first wife obtain ed a divorce and $30,000. As soon as possible after this divorce. Cooper, who is about 65 years of age, married Clara Stookeye, a milliner. She lived with him a few months and then got a divorce and $1,000. Cooper was de fended in this divorce suit by W. W. Harvey, who was then practicing in Topeka, and because he did not set tle his attorney fees, Harvey sued him, getting a judgment for $1,500. The divorce case had not yet been settled when Cooper engaged a wid ow, named Virginia Bower, as house keeper. She claims he promised to marry her, thereby inducing her to live with him as a common law wife pending the expiration of the six months which was to free him from his former entanglement, and make it possible for him to marry again. He did not carry out his part of this alleged contract, "and she sued him for $25,000 with the above results. XORTII TOPEKA REVIVAL. Baptist Ohiircli Will Begin a Series of Meetings Dec. 2.
