Sam ran an alleged chop- suey" resort, but a search by the offi cers disclosed a collection of beer, which fitted the charge, "keeping aid maintaining a nuisance." Then, hav ing a further complaint, they extended the search of the premises, and raised an opium smoking outfit and some of the drug for the retail trade.

"Yes, your roynl highness," remarked the principal, and he beckoned the two frightened youngsters to him. "Ah," said the prince, placing his hand on the head of one of them, "what is your name?" "Heinrich." "And how old are ycu?" "Six." answered the boy. "And you?" he said, turning to the ether lad. Harper's Weekly. nnna nnr?

There is nothing in this simple an nouncement to create &ny special in terest because Dora was "known rather by her work than by name. , For. eight years she has been in charge of the kitchen at the Elks.- There are fey prominent people in Topeka who have not tasted of the food prepared by her skillful hands. If the cuisine at the Elks has been famous it was because Dora made it so. If any one wanted a steak done just right or a wild duck served as only an expert can serve it he annealed to Dora and it is not writ ten that he was ever (disappointed. There is probably n one' in the coun try to whom is entrusted the delicate duty of ministering to the sated palates of bachelors who has had as few com plaints. She made a record of which any one might be proud. It was known that she did her work well and never slighted a task. - S it a v Dora Couts, the Elks Cook, Who Died Last Night. About a year ago Dora's sister died after a lingering illness from con sumption. Much of the care and at tention given her came from Dora as well as the expense of her illness and burial. The days following her death Dora was not- herself and after re peated urglngs she confided to one of "her beys" that she had -not been able to pay all of the funeral expenses when due. A paper was circulated among tho members of the club who knew Dora as a member of the big club family and the , expenses were paid and Dora never knew where the money came from excepting "the boys seat it back to me." ; At noon yesterday there appeared on the bulletin board at the Elks club the brief sentence, "Dora is dying," and for the remainder of the day the conversation was hushed and Dora'j name was frequently on the lips of the members as they inquired as to her con dition. Her illness was brief, but dur ing the time she wanted for naught that money or friend could provide. Vases about the rooms filled with flow ers show that her friends were think ing of her even after she was forced to surrender her place at the club, to an other. Either Mrs. Barns or her daughter for whom she had worked since Mr. Barns has had charge of the Elk club for the past six years, were with her almost constantly for the past week day and night. The funeral ' will belerd from the colored .'Baptist .' cti wrcft,i - Wednesday at 3 p. m. The employes of the Elk club will act as pall bearers. VP EROM THE 'RANKS. Successful Climb of tle New President of tho Illinois Central. James T. Harahan on Wednesday was made the executive head of the Illinois Central railway system. With the con troversies that resulted in his selection or with the financial politics which brought it about there is no concern here. All that is considered here is th commentary afforded on the common assertion" that the poor boy "has no chance." . James T. Harahan entered the rail way service forty-two -years ago as a section hand a laborer on a petty railroad in Virginia. He was just one of many thousands a lad of 21 without "influence" of any kind with nothing but his own strong hands and shrewd brain. He drifted about from one minor post to another through eight years of apprenticeship. In 1872 he was made a roadmaster and began to climb. In 1879 he was a division superintendent, and in 1884 was made general manager of a southern railway. Here he found his ideas in conflict with those of higher authority, and for several years he went from one rail way to another without finding the post that fitted him. Finally he found it with a southern railway whose future consisted chiefly in hopes. In less than a year he made that railway such a power in the land that the Illinois Cen tral was glad to take it over and him with it, while its owners made fortunes by the transaction. And he kept on climbing until he stands at the top of the great railway system of the Mississippi valley. Nobody "made" Mr. Harahan. He "made" himself. And he "made" him self by seeing and seizing the opportun ities which lay open before him, and which at every stage of his career, up to the present one, were no wider open for him than for others. And Mr. Harahan's-tareer is only one of hundreds and thousands of such careers in the past and of thousands and tens of thousands of. careers which are being successfully pursued today. As far as mere wealth and power and the power that brings wealth is con cerned the poor boy never had a great en chance than he has in this nation to day. Chicago Inter Ocean. Attempt at Sniclde. Mrs. F. S. Jillson of 516 Clay street, attempted to commit suicide late Mon day afternoon, but was saved by the intervention of neighbors. She was de spondent.
